    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Goof: In this episode, Jeannie claims that she was a friend of Christopher Columbus, but it was established in the pilot that she was imprisoned in her bottle for over 2000 years, thus making it impossible for her to have known Columbus.

    • QUOTES (0)

    • NOTES (4)

      • In the current version of the episode seen in syndication (and on cable), most of the original music cues, sound effects and laugh track were "recreated", due to the use of a "master negative" that did not have them on the soundtrack.

      • This episode marks the second time that Jeannie wears the blue harmem outfit that would become associated with her wicked sister.

      • This episode introduces the "peep show" viewer that would eventually be dubbed "The Past and Future Machine". Here, it costs one drachma to view.

      • Tony's office in the future vision sequence is Darrin Stephen's office at McMann and Tate from Bewitched.
