I Love Lucy: Season 3, episode 15

Midway through this episode there is a scene where Lucy first tells Ricky about her “million dollar idea” to make and sell salad dressing. Ricky brings up some practical concerns about the plan, and Lucy rebuts him but reminding him it is a “million dollar idea.” It is a brief clip and a great example of circular reasoning (begging the question).

About teachingpublicspeaking

I'm a former public speaking college instructor who spent years seeking out activities, assignments and examples to make the class interactive as well as educational -- they are collected here. I welcome suggestions for additions.
