LORELAI: Luke? Stella got out and I don’t know – do I put seed on the floor? Do I make cheeping sounds? Or do I pull a Lucy Ricardo and walk like a chicken so she thinks I’m her mother?
On I Love Lucy, earlier discussed, there was a point in the show when New Yorkers Lucy and Ricky Ricardo began a new life in Connecticut. In the episode Lucy Raises Chickens (4 March 1957), Lucy tries to make money to pay the bills by raising five hundred chickens in the house, and attempts this method of bonding with them.
