March 2, 1960: Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz finish filming the final episode of The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour. The end of the episode called for a clinch, kiss, and fade. The next day, Lucy filed for divorce, making this their final screen appearance together.
We had to do the last Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour, and I would direct it. Not because I wanted to; I would have rather had one of our other directors do it, but they were all busy.
Doing that last Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour was not easy. We knew it was the last time we would be Lucy and Ricky. As fate would have it, the very last scene in that story called for a long clinch and a kiss-and-make-up ending. As we got to it, we looked at each other, embraced, and kissed. This was not just an ordinary kiss for a scene in a show. It was a kiss that would wrap up twenty years of love and friendship, triumphs and failures, ecstasy and sex, jealousy and regrets, heartbreaks and laughter… and tears. The only thing we were not able to hide was the tears.
After the kiss we just stood there looking at each other and licking the salt.
But, I arrive at your house but you’ve just got up and you are wearing a towel and your eyes look dark, I help to dry your body and I see your cut, so I give you a plaster and we cover it up. I say have you been crying and you say shut up. So we sit in the garden and touch grass with our hands.
I’m so excited for this show but i’m also anxious because it’s being aired on disney channel and they have been known to focus more on making everything a musical so they can make more money. The great thing about Boy Meet World (for me at least) is that it touched on serious subjects in a very elegant way that many shows could never pull off.
The show follows Riley and her friend Maya (shown in 3rd picture) as they go through 7th grade where her dad (Cory) teaches history! I’m so excited to see Cory as a teacher. Topanga is weirdly running a pudding shop which is very confusing but we will see where it goes.
The cast seems confident that the show is being handled in the right way. I guess we will see in 2014 when the show airs.
Ben: We need to do something about Leslie Knope in the Parks Department. She’s being such a pain in the ass. […] She’s driving me nuts. She has sent me more than eighty memos. In the last one, she compared me to Idi Amin. Chris: Why are you so focused on Leslie Knope? Ben: I’m not. Whatever. Shut up.
