Summary: "An item in the morning gossip column prompts Lucy to assume that Ricky is seeing another woman, but he assures her that the newspaper piece is merely publicity. To apologize for her lack of wifely faith, Lucy prepares Ricky's favorite dish, arroz con pollo, but her mood changes abruptly when she finds a piece of black lace in Ricky's pocket. He tries to explain that it was torn off accidentally from Tropicana dancer Rosemary's gown during the rehearsal of Jezebel. To keep an eye on Ricky, Luch manages to wrangle her way into the chorus line and upstages Rosemary during the number. Later that night at home, Ricky tells Lucy there was a 'strange girl' in the chorus, ugly, and a terrible dancer. He knew all along it was Lucy. They kiss and make-up"—The I love Lucy book / Bart Andrews. 1985.
