What is the best episode of I Love Lucy?

you know, in response to the one about the worst.

Me, I liked the one where she and Ethel and Fred went to the Brown Derby and they met Eve Arden and see Bill Holden and later, Lucy freaks when Rick brings Bill Holden home.

The bit with dunking the fake nose into her coffee cup to complete putting out the flame wasn't in the script.

Ricky’s Movie Offer — Vance has one of the great unscripted sight gags of the series. Catches Ball completely off-guard. I have a video capture but it might be compressed badly.

Lucy always claimed that nose stuff wasn't in the script, but that was bullshit has been debunked by numerous production staff from the show.

The candy factory.

Agreed, R2. She was infamous for rehearsing absolutely every detail TO DEATH.

My fave episode is the Brown Derby one. I don't know if it's the best one.

When she tells Ricky she's pregnant.

I love the Christmas special.

R2- Who cares it was FUNNY.

I have ton of them, but I can't get the one out of my mind where they go to court and Ethel lifts her skirt to entice the judge, after seeing Lucy do it, and Fred lowers it.

[R1]: It's my favorite too, and we get to see Eve Arden.

The one I laughed the hardest at when I first saw it was "Lucy Does a Commercial," the popular favorite.

When Lucy goes to the club to tell Ricky she’s pregnant.

"Ethel's Birthday," the one with the hostess pants, the toaster, and "Over the Teacups."

Also the one where they try to attend "The Most Happy Fella" on Broadway and hilarity ensues.

"Cuban Pals", where Lucy is chased all over the Tropicana by a "VooDoo Man".

I like “Lucy Meets Orson Welles.”

I love the episode where Lucy learns to drive. Its something we can all relate to but, as with the best of their episodes, it goes from a realistic idea and goes to absolutely looney heights, with the traffic jam in Holland Tunnel and the two cars stuck together.

Oh--and the Baby Cheese episode. That one should be better remembered. Genius.
