    After filming the final episode of the 1966-1967 season, Lucille Ball had overworked director Maury Thompson to the point he was in tears. Maury Thompson then confided to fellow co-worker Tommy Thompson (who were *not* related) that - after working him so hard and insisting on her own ways during the filming - he wanted Ms. Ball to give him a raise, but not to say anything about it until after he returned from a South American vacation he would take the next week. Unfortunately, Tommy spilled the beans to Ms. Ball while Maury was away, and Ms. Ball became infuriated, after which she re-hired Jack Donahue - who directed all of "The Lucy Show"'s episodes during the first three seasons - to direct the series' final season episodes. Upon returning from his vacation the following week, Maury Thompson was blithely informed by Tommy Thompson that Ms. Ball had canned him.
