Watch the Birdie
Tony, accompanied by Jeannie, goes to the golf course to deliver some documents to General Peterson. Tony, who does not play, accepts the pro's invitation to take a few swings. Jeannie causes the ball to sail through the air in a beautiful line drive. General Peterson, intent on defeating his rival, Admiral Tugwell, in a forthcoming game, sees the shot and determines that Tony will be his golfing partner in the match. Dr. Bellows is unable to convince the General that Tony doesn't golf. Even Tony's pleas that he is wholly inexperienced fail to shake the General. Refusing Jeannie's aid as unsportsmanlike, Tony unsuccessfully tries various ruses to get out of playing. The day of the match arrives and Tony, still refusing to allow Jeannie to interfere, corks the genie in her bottle. As the match progresses, Tony's game is an utter disaster and the General begins to worry. Tony's friend, Roger, sensing a debacle, rushes to Tony's house and uncorks Jeannie. At the golf course, Jeannie reverses the trend by making all of Tony's remaining shots holes-in one. Peterson and Tony win the contest.
