"The sun never sets on Lucille Ball. All over this worried world tonight, nations of untold millions are watching reruns they also watched the first time around. Joy requires no translation. God wanted the world to laugh, and He invented you. Many are called, but you were chosen. All of the funny hats, the baggy pants, the moustaches and the wigs, and the pratfalls and the blacked-out-teeth – they didn’t fool us one minute. We saw through all the disguises, and what we found inside was more than we deserve"
