Lucy: I didn't tell a soul, and they all promised to keep it a secret.

Here at last are the greatest quotes, wisecracks, and jokes from the television program that's entertained millions of viewers for more than 50 years. Fans of the show will be delighted to encounter, once again, Lucy Ricardo's unique views on marriage, love, friendship, money, success, and holidays ("It's not the gift that counts. It's the lack of thought behind it!"). But Lucy's not the only quotable one: enjoy Ricky's lessons on American history ("All I know is that Columbus discovered Ohio in 1776."); Ethel Mertz's thoughts on her pal ("If I'd known this was what friends are for, I'd have signed up as an enemy!"), and Fred's memories of rice ("I had it thrown at me on one of the darkest days of my life").
It's all here, and more in a hilarious tribute to the best program ever.

Publisher's Weekly Review

Lucille Ball was the first to admit that she owed much of her fame to her writers, and The Quotable "I Love Lucy" helps make a case for the brilliance of the show's writers. Compiled and with an introduction by the We Love Lucy Fan Club president, Tom Watson, and with stills from the show throughout, this selection of the sitcom's funniest moments will delight her multitude of fans. The book is divided into categories like Love and Marriage and Planning and Scheming. "I didn't tell a soul, and they all promised to keep it a secret!" wails Lucy in her inimitable way, and readers will be glad this pithy little volume wasn't kept a secret, either. ( Jan.)
