This is Ethel, your friend, to whom you may turn in time of crisis.
Lucy Ricardo: Ethel, have you been drinking?
While Lucy is somewhat consistent in her lack of talent, Ethel at various times is shown to be excellent on the piano, as well as, having a very basic playing ability. In one episode, she plays 'Sweet Sue' and other songs while the group sings, but in various episodes where Lucy is trying to form a band, she is hopelessly inept on the instrument.
In the series' finale: I Love Lucy: The Ricardos Dedicate a Statue (1957), "Yankee Doodle Dandy" music is played, as the episode goes to & comes from a commercial break.
Many scenes or parts of scenes are cut from the episodes for syndication, to make room for the much larger number of commercials present today.
