Corrected entry: Major Healy is an astronaut - and an Army officer. In those days, astronauts had to be pilots with thousands of hours of experience in fighters and other high-performance aircraft and the Army did not (and does not) have any such aircraft, only helicopters and a few small propeller planes. Astronauts could be Air Force, Navy, or Marine Corps pilots, but not Army. In fact, according to the insignia on his uniform, Major Healy is not even in Army aviation, but the Corps of Engineers, which is responsible for bridges, roads, dams, etc.

Correction: In the 1960s the Army did not have a branch called Aviation. Officers used their original branch insignia, like Major Healey. Army Aviation branch was officially made in the 1990s. Major Healey's uniform is correct.

Continuity mistake: Throughout this episode, the coat rack behind Major Nelson's front door alternates between having a coat of arms decoration in the middle or nothing in the middle. It seems this episode was filmed while a set change was taking place, since previous episodes feature a hand holding a bell as the center decoration for the coat rack and following episodes feature the coat of arms decoration.

Trivia: The Screen Gems sets of I Dream of Jeannie and Bewitched were right next to each other at the studio, and many of the actual sets and props were shared between the two shows. Both shows also shared Dick Albain, the Special Effects expert, who worked on the two shows for quite awhile.

Answer: As noted elsewhere here Jeannie is speaking Farsi.

Answer: Regarding the three wishes, there was never any set-in-stone rule or belief. This appears to originate from "The Ridiculous Wishes" or "The Three Ridiculous Wishes" that is a French literary fairy tale written by Charles Perrault and was published in 1697. It sort of set the standard for genie rules that later appeared in other folk tales and then in movies and TV shows. Like vampire lore, common details can be changed by any author to suit their story.

Answer: She's speaking Persian. And there was never a 3 wish rule. When Tony freed her, he became her master, and she'd do anything for him (i.e. grant his every wish).
