“Good evening and welcome. In a moment we’ll look in on Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz. But before we do, may I ask you a very personal question? The question is simply this—do you inhale? Well, I do. And chances are you do too. And because you inhale you’re better off—much better off—smoking Philip Morris and for good reason. You see, Philip Morris is the one cigarette proved definitely less irritating, definitely milder than any other leading brand. That’s why when you inhale you’re better off smoking Philip Morris…. And now Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz in I Love Lucy.”
–From the introduction to the premier of “I Love Lucy” on Oct. 15, 1951, cited in David Halberstam’s “The Fifties” (1993).
