Default Episode- Lucy Makes A Few Extra Dollars

Just watched this one on the DVD, good episode, but poor Gale Gordon took a lot of abuse. He got a bowl of salad dropped on him, then a tall glass of iced tea was spilled on him, then later he and Lucy wrestle with a 5 gallon bottle of water from the office water cooler and he gets water spilled on him, then finally he gets sprayed by several fire extinguishers. At least Lucy wasn't left out of the abuse, she got hers when she was dropped into the water tank at a carnival, appropriately so by courtesy of Gale Gordon.

I have to disagree on this one, I think it's one of the worst! And it doesn't make sense. Lucy and Kim are in the office pretending to be counterfeiting money. Lucy calls Harry, who is at home in bed, but within about 40 seconds he's in the office with Lucy and Kim. How is that possible unless his home is inside this same office building? We know from plenty other episodes that his home in located in another part of town. Besides that, all the physical stuff seems very forced and predictable. I think it's badly written and badly executed. I don't enjoy this episode at all.

It might not be the greatest episode writing wise, but for me, the physical and visual humor is what makes the episode. I think it's funny. Lucy and Gale Gordon were a great team.
