The Lucy Show?
At his Los Angeles law offices, Herb's secretary is out sick. Eve (Eve Arden) arrives and persuades Herb (Herbert Rudley) she should serve as a temporary replacement. Very quickly, Kaye (Kaye Ballad) stops by and joins Eve in the office. The two women cause comic uproar and almost spoil a business deal. After lunching on Deviled eggs, Eve and Kaye allow Roger (Roger C. Carmel) to work in the office, too. He is unable to work at home without Kaye in the house. Naturally, Herb's office becomes a madhouse. In this episode, Eve and Kaye continue following Desi Arnaz and the series' writers (Bob Carroll Jr. and Madelyn Davis) "Lucy" antics. It's interesting to see them go for the concurrent "Lucy Show" situation, with each playing the ditsy secretary. Herb would have been great in the "Mr. Mooney" (Gale Gordon) role. Also, the Mothers-In-Law assist in the marriage of "Bachelor Father" boy Jimmy Boyd and "Dr. Pepper Girl" Donna Loren.
