Jeannie and the Marriage Caper
Although the date hasn't been set, Tony forbids Jeannie to accompany Melissa and himself on their honeymoon. Grover Caldwell, a young State Department attaché, tells Tony that General Stone, Melissa's father, has accepted an ambassadorial post. General Stone announces he hopes to take Tony, his prospective son in law, along as his military side. When Tony expresses his desire to remain with the space program, Melissa, who has been working to advance the marriage date, tells her father she will change Tony's mind. She suggests that Grover replace Roger as Tony's best man. Jeannie, determined to accompany Tony, prepares an oriental feast when Melissa and her father dine at Tony's. Before serving, Jeannie turns herself into a Filipino houseboy. Melissa suggests they take the houseboy to Europe with them. Tony is given a bachelor dinner where Jeannie emerges dancing from a prop cake. Jeannie learns that Grover is an old boy friend of Melissa's. Before Jeannie is through, Grover tells Melissa he loves her. Tony is not completely unhappy to be left with Jeannie when Grover and Melissa declare their intentions to marry.
