    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (6)

      • Bilejik says his solution costs only pennies, which is not the currency of Baghdad.

      • There is a palm tree and a beach outside Tony's study window, where there should be a neighborhood and street.

      • Bilejik reminds Jeannie the last time he helped her was 1500 years ago, yet she was imprisoned in her bottle for the last 2000 years.

      • After Dr. Bellows grills Tony about the car and walks away, the rear antenna on the car is raised (about 2 feet).  While Jeannie was driving, it was down, only showing about 6 inches.

      • There are 2 sequences in which Tony's seemingly driverless car is circling and the film is sped up, with the camera inside the car pointing at the dashboard.  On the second sequence, a hand briefly appears at the bottom right of the steering wheel.

      • When Tony is chasing after his car, and running toward the camera, you can see a set façade in the background.

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Tony: (Tony is trying to "negotiate" with Bilejik for his desalinization forumla) How much do you want for it?
        Bilejik: (frustrated) No, no ,NO! That is no way to negotiate!!
        Oh dear, you'll spoil everything! Let me help you- when you negotiate, you pretend...that you are not interested. Then, perhaps, I will lower my price. (chuckles)
        Tony: And would you, sir?
        Bilejik: Thou must be kidding!

      • Tony: You're being unreasonable, Bilejik. I can't give you the Statue Of Liberty! It doesn't even belong to me!
        Bilejik: No one has ever called Bilejik unreasonable! What about that thing called the Mint?
        Tony: The Mint? I can't give you the Mint!
        Bilejik: (almost pleading) Elizabeth Taylor?
        Tony: Forget it!

      • Bilejk: The last time you summoned me to help someone was 1500 years ago, and I sold him two pyramids and the scrolls of the red sea.

      • Tony: (after he learnt Bilejk's secret) I'm gonna see that your name goes down in history.
        Bilejk: Well, who wants that? There...there's no money in it.

      • Bilejk: (to Tony) You know, she is my most favorite great-granddaughter, but is honest. Of course, nobody is perfect.

    • NOTES (2)

      • There is a tissue box that never moves or flies off the dashboard when Jeannie is driving and spinning the car in circles.  It is the periscope for the hidden driver.

      • The "Botanist" [identified as "Leslie Staples" of the Department of Agriculture in the original first draft script] was played by Chet Stratton, who appeared later in the first season as 'The Great Nestor' in "My Master, the Magician". He received no screen credit for this appearance.
