Thinking the lamp will grant him some wishes, he rubs it and wishes to marry his cousin, Jane. He later leaves for the US. Right after he leaves, a friendly witch named Harmy BoBo comes out of the lamp and tries to grant Sam and the Director the wishes. Only Fugu, however, can have the wishes since he rubbed the lamp first. BoBo does not know Fugu left the country, and Sam and Director does not know BoBo is a witch.
