  • Episode Description
  • After Chett hits Wyatt in the face with a ceramic ashtray, Wyatt wishes that Chett could see what his life would be like without Wyatt around. Lisa, always eager to help, zaps up a world where Wyatt has never been born, but only exist as phantoms. The plan doesn't work out as planned when Wyatt finds out that everyone ends up having a better life without him around. Gary's now the big man on campus and Chett's heading off to college. Even worse, Lisa can't bring herself and Wyatt back from the alternate planet. Their only option is to somehow get Gary and Chett to create a genie of their own.moreless
