The Americanization of Jeannie
Feeling that Jeannie must widen her horizons, Tony gives her a book "How To Be A Woman." Following the book's advice, to share her work with her man, Jeannie neglects her chores and allows the house to go to pot. Reading the chapter on clothing the successful woman, Jeannie charges an expensive wardrobe, including a mink coat. Convinced by the book that a man should take the woman out to dinner, Jeannie steers Tony to expensive Cafe Scheherazade. She starts a row when she criticizes the authenticity of the Arabian dancing. Literally taking the author's advice, Jeannie becomes a career girl and performs miraculous feats of instantaneous cooking while demonstrating electric stoves. Her employer, Sam, feeling she has been planted to get him into trouble with the Better Business Bureau, fires her. Later, after Tony feels he has straightened out things at home, Jeannie hears a news report about the flight of a Russian female astronaut. Blinking her eyes, she is outfitted as an astronaut and insists on accompanying Tony into space.
