Storyline

Lucy is secretly running the annual bazaar, having been forbidden by Ricky to ever be in charge of it again. When Ricky finds a huge roll of bazaar money in Lucy's purse, he begins to suspect something. Things only get worse when Ricky finds extra silverware in their apartment and Lucy is caught stealing Fred's cuckoo clock. Ricky fears that his wife may be a kleptomaniac, and calls Dr. Robinson to help solve the matter.
