  • After Amanda Bellows insists on wanting a duplicate made of Jeannie's bottle, Dr. Bellows accidentally swipes the bottle (with Jeannie inside) prompting Tony and Roger to go on a madcap recovery mission.

    I have lots of fond memories of this particular episode from my childhood. The sequence where Major Nelson and Major Healy have to break and enter the Bellows home to retrieve Jeannie has one great gag after another. Larry Hagman and Bill Dailey play off each other beautifully in this episode providing many laugh out loud situations in their clumsy attempts to recover Jeannie's bottle. In fact, their coming timing and natural ability to perform slapstick bits hearkens back to the great comic duos of the 1930s and 1940s. That's one of the great pleasures of "I Dream of Jeannie" - that many of the comical situations have an Abbott and Costello or Laurel and Hardy feel to them.
