Synopsis >

Tony insists that Jeannie stop waiting on him. Jeannie takes the sacred oath of the genies to refuse any further request for help he might make. Then Tony is kidnapped by two Chinese secret agents, Wong and Chan, and Jeannie turns down his plea for help. She tells Roger that because of her oath she would lose her supernatural powers if she aids Tony, but agrees to let Roger know what is happening to him. From then on, she pops back and forth where Tony is being held prisoner and informs Roger what progress Tony's captors are making in forcing him to reveal the details of a secret space program. Hearing Roger's reports, Dr. Bellows and General Peterson are uncertain who has flipped his lid. The Princess, who is the top secret agent, tells Tony he is to be removed from the country. General Peterson hearing Roger's report from Dr. Bellows, is sure the doctor is suffering hallucinations. Jeannie reveals she will turn to dust if she helps Tony but tells Roger she could help Tony if Roger became her master. He does so. Jeannie rescues Tony and then persuades Roger to return her to Tony. Questioned about the events, Tony tells Dr. Bellows and General Peterson it is the plot for a show he and Roger are writing. At home, Tony gratefully accepts Jeannie's help.
