Synopsis >

Jeannie II learns that Tony would turn against anyone who interfered with his trip to the moon. Listing the dangers involved, she persuades Jeannie to try to get Tony to resign. At NASA, Gen. Schaeffer, Dr. Bellows, Roger and Tony are studying a movie of the moon's surface. When Jeannie fails to get Tony to resign Jeannie II takes over. Soon Tony is terrorized as roaring tigers and freight trains, invisible to everyone else, leap from the screen. General Schaeffer asks Dr. Bellows to check Tony's mental condition. Jeannie II steps up the terror and Tony is dropped from the flight. Sure Jeannie is responsible, Tony declares they're through. Tony convinces Jeannie that modern technology will guard him against all the dangers he will meet. Dr. Bellows decides to check the astronauts' weight. Jeannie II goes to work again and soon Tony weighs 300 pounds. When Tony convinces Jeannie II that he loves her, she blinks him back to normal. Roger pops a towel over her eyes so she can't blink, then hides her in a closet. Seeing Tony at his normal weight, Gen. Schaeffer decides there must be something wrong with Dr. Bellows. When the closet opens, Roger weighs 300 pounds and begins screaming for Jeannie.
