In the pilot episode, "
The Lady in the
Bottle
", astronaut Captain Tony Nelson, US Air Force, is on a space
flight when his one-man capsule Stardust One comes down far from
the planned recovery area, near a deserted island in the
South
Pacific
. On the beach, Tony notices a strange bottle that rolls by
itself. When he rubs it after removing the stopper, smoke starts
shooting out and a
Persian
-speaking female genie (wearing an enticing harem costume)
materializes and kisses Tony on the lips with passion, shocking
him…!
They cannot understand each other
until Tony expresses his wish that Jeannie (a
homophone
of
genie
) could speak English, which she then does. Then, per his
instructions, she "blinks" and causes a recovery helicopter to show
up to rescue Tony, who is so grateful that he tells her she's free.
But Jeannie, who has fallen in love with Tony at first sight after
being trapped for 2000 years, re-enters her bottle and places it in
Tony's duffel bag so she can accompany him back home. One of the
first things Jeannie does, in a subsequent episode, is break up
Tony's engagement to his commanding general's daughter, who, along
with that particular general, is never seen again. (This event
reflects producer Sidney Sheldon's decision that the engagement
depicted in the pilot episode would not be part of the series
continuity; he realized the romantic triangle he created between
Jeannie, "Master" and Melissa Stone wouldn't pan out in the long
run.)
