Fun Stuff

From "Pee-wee's Playhouse: To Tell the Tooth (#3.2)" (1988)
Pee-wee Herman: [in pain from a toothache] HELP! JAMBI, HELP!
[he pounds on Jambi's box]
Pee-wee Herman: JAMBI! HELP!
[he keeps pounding on the box and calling Jambi's name, until it finally opens, revealing not Jambi, but an answering machine - the genie is on vacation]
Jambi: [on answering machine] Hi. I'm not here to grant your wish right now. So leave your name and wish after the beep, and I'll be back to grant it just as soon as I can.
[there's a comically loud "BEEP!" on the machine, and the box closes]
