Why ‘I Love Lucy’

YoSoInocente

Daily Prompt: Conversation

My all time favorite I Love Lucy episode, ‘Paris, At Last’, has Lucy imprisoned for accidentally passing counterfeit bills. Despite only knowing English, Lucy manages to converse with the French speaking senior gendarme, by roping in a bilingual junior gendarme (conversant in french and German), and the jail’s other occupant, a drunken Spaniard who speaks german (or perhaps he is a drunken german who speaks Spanish). Add Ricky’s English-Spanish skills to the this horizontal tower of babel and it makes for one of the funniest moments in televised comedy.
