Lucy tries to re-unite Fred and Ethel after their fight, by inviting them both to dinner, without telling each of them that the other is invited. As they make up over dinner, Lucy and Ricky argue and Lucy pretends that she was run over by a bus.
In order for Lucy to hide from Ricky that she is snooping in the new neighbors' apartment, she hides in their closet where she hears them planning to blow up the capital, not knowing that they're rehearsing a play.
Ricky won't shave off his mustache for Lucy so she glues on a beard in retaliation, using liquid cement by mistake. When a movie producer visits and enjoys Lucy's veiled Arabian dance, she is stuck when he asks to see her face.
