  • 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.moreless

    • Because this was the night the winning entry of the "Guess the Secret Combination Contest" would be announced on NBC, the exact combination that Tony discovered would open the safe was orginally "left open" on the soundtrack
      (with Tony's face partially obscured as he read it off), until just before the episode aired. The numbers {4-9-7} were dubbed in at virtually the last minute by Larry Hagman.

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Roger: No matter how you look at it, I mean, the whole mission's impossible.


      This is a reference to Mission: Impossible, one of the show's contemporaries airing on competing network CBS. That show was famous for its very complicated and time-critical schemes, and focus on gadgetry, just as this episode spoofed.
