Ricky: He's half my child, you know.
Lucy: Well he's half mine too and unfortunately, when I hid my half, your half went right along with it.

The sitting room of Lucille's childhood home was where the family gathered, especially in winter. Wicker furniture surrounded the potbellied stove that stood in the corner, and a large floor register from the furnace in the cellar kept this room, and the entire house, heated. Family members would stand over the register to warm themselves, and even the family cat was known to bring her kittens into this room to enjoy the warmth.
