Captain Healey finally discovers Jeannie's secret
6 November 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Richest Astronaut in the World" opens with Roger still searching for the missing Jeannie, wondering if he should hire a detective agency to find her. Tony makes the mistake of leaving Roger in his house while he attends a meeting with Dr. Bellows, picking up her bottle and watching her emerge from the smoke: "I've been looking all over for you, and all the time you were right here in the bottle!" (no sooner are the words out of his mouth than he faints dead away). Now that he knows Jeannie's secret Roger lets his greed get the better of him, tricking her into getting back into the bottle and stealing it right from under Tony's nose. We get to see what kind of trouble Tony would get into if he were as demanding as Roger, whose sudden wealth comes under suspicion from Dr. Bellows and General Peterson (Barton MacLane), who assume he's been bribed by a foreign power. Naturally he calls upon old buddy Tony to get out of trouble, provided he return his genie to her former master. 17 episodes in Roger would become an even more integral part of the team, now that he's in on the secret.
