    If Lucy won 5 rooms of furniture, why are only two delivered in the next episode?

  Episode 50: Lucy Is Enciente

When Ricky is singing "Rock-A-Bye Baby" he messes up the lyrics to the song and sings "when the wind blows, the cradle will fall". It was a mistake that Desi Arnaz realized and wanted to do over, but everyone loved the scene just as it was, so it has remained. If you look at the scene, he messes up as he realizes that HE is the father-to-be, so it seems so appropriate that he would forget the lyrics at that point.
