In the follow-up to 'I Love Lucy,' Lucille Ball plays widow Lucy Carmichael, a mother of two children who shares a home with divorced friend Vivian Bagley (Vivian Vance of 'I Love Lucy' fame). Carmichael is always scheming—dragging Vivian along with her—and grappling with comic complications related to life on her own and serving as secretary to the grumpy and demanding Mr. Mooney.
When Lucy takes Mr. Mooney to buy a fur for his wife, they're made an incredible offer on a stole by a shady character. The stole turns out to be "hot," getting the two of them arrested for possession of stolen goods.
Mr. Mooney flirts innocently with a waitress when attending an out-of-town bank convention. But then the sexy server comes to L.A. insisting that Mooney has proposed to her. To scare her off, Lucy pretends to be Mrs. Mooney and shows the home-wrecker how horrible it is to be married to a such a monster.
Lucy borrows Mr. Mooney's TV set and promptly breaks it. To make enough cash to replace it, she moonlights as a carhop at a drive-in. While there, she takes up the cause of a young motorcyclist who's accused of stealing and stripping cars.
Lucy visits a local pool hall and enters the billiards tournament. Her main competition is Laura Winthrop. Cigar-smoking Laura, however, looks suspiciously like a a pool hustling man by the name of Ace.
Lucy's old pal, Viv Bunson, comes out west to care for Lucy after she breaks her leg. They spend time looking back at when they lived together, until Viv breaks her leg while on her way to fix lunch, forcing Mr. Mooney to look after both of them.
