Recommended Posts

The time we have all been waiting for has finally arrived…..I Love Lucy Day is near. October 15th is a time for Lucy lovers everywhere to come together and show their appreciation for the original queen of comedy, the glass ceiling shattering, the studio owning, the great, the one and the only Lucille Ball! This Activity Corner is dedicated to all things Lucy. Prepare events to accompany an I Love Lucy Watch-A-Thon at your facility. Each activity suggestion can be incorporated throughout the day. If you really wanted to sell it, you could wear a Lucy costume. It will be Halloween time after all.

Which of your residents are Lucy’s #1 Fan? Many of us have seen the episodes so many times we could recite the script word for word. couldn’t we? Below is the actual script from Season 1, Episode 1 - The Girls Want to Go to the Nightclub. You use this script in a couple of ways. You can either print it out and mark out some of the lines and hand copies out to your residents. Allow them time to fill in what lines they think are missing. The one with the most correct/closest answers wins! Or you could re-enact a scene over the loudspeaker radio show style, in honor of I Love Lucy’s roots. Below is the beginning of the script.

Flowers against a background of...gravy.

I've been meaning to talk to you about Monday night. We want you and Ricky
to help us celebrate. It's our wedding anniversary.

Oh, yours and Fred's?

No, me and Gregory Peck. We've been married for 18 years and I vowed that at least once before I died,
Fred was going to take me to a nightclub on our wedding anniversary.

Well, that sounds reasonable.

Now, this is my plan. We'll go in there and I'll say: "I know what let's do next Monday night. Let's go to a nightclub." And you second the motion. Then Ricky will bound to his feet and say "That's great." Then Fred will have to take me because if...

Ricky bounds to his feet and says, "That's great"?


Wrong. Ricky hates nightclubs.

But he works in one. Your life should be just one gay round of nightclubs.

Yeah, that's what I thought when I married a bandleader, but ever since we said "I do", there are so many things we don't.
