“Captain Nelson landed on an island in the South Pacific where he found a bottle. At least it looked like a bottle, but it didn’t act like a bottle because in it was a genie. Oh, not your average, everyday genie, but a beautiful genie who could grant any wish. Captain Nelson was so grateful that he set Jeannie free, only she didn’t want to be free. You know how it is when you’ve been cooped up in a bottle for 2,000 years. She wanted to have fun, and she wanted to have it with Captain Nelson. So she followed him back to Cocoa Beach, a mythical town in a mythical state called Florida. And there in this house the girl in the bottle plays spin the astronaut.” -Narration by Paul Frees from the season one opening of the classic sitcom I Dream of Jeannie starring Barbara Eden and Larry Hagman.
