  • Time is running out for Tony Nelson to rescue a miniature Jeannie from the safe she is locked in, which is rigged to explode if not opened correctly.

    I agree with the review of the previous chapter in this story arc that overall that was the best of the four episodes in it. But this conclusion to the storyline does contain what is perhaps my favorite moment in the series: When Benny Rubin's character is drilling through the safe to bypass the explosive device in it, in an interior shot of the safe, the drill bit is seen behind Jeannie coming through the side and hitting one of the items piled behind her, which knocks over something resembling a giant lipstick, which bonks Jeannie on the head knocking her out. Nobody did that cross-eyed head bonk kayo thing better than Barbara Eden. It's not easy to describe just how sexy it is.
