Desi and the Mini Skirt
An old sweetheart of Herb's is coming to the Hubbards for dinner. Eve (Eve Arden) is looking forward to meeting the woman and has a new dress to show off for the occasion. Eve isn't worried, but Kaye (Kaye Ballard) tells her the old romance could be rekindled and the Hubbard marriage threatened. Herb (Herbert Rudley) is shocked by the mini-skirt won by daughter Suzie (Deborah Walley), but when old flame Beverly Garland (as Audrey Fleming) arrives in an eye-popping micro-mini, Herb and Roger (Roger C. Carmel) are enthralled. Eve comments on the cheeky mini, "I think we've seen our first bottomless dress." Later, a misunderstanding indicates the husband once known as "Hot Lips Hubbard" may be seeing even more of Ms. Garland. This episode takes a modern look at the Lucy-Desi formula, with funny results.
