I Dream of Jeannie Theme

1) Jeannie was memorably discovered on the beach in an ornate bottle. Have you ever brought a souvenir home from the beach? (It doesn't have to be a genie. A shell or a stone will do.) I pick up sea glass

2) Major Anthony Nelson, the man who released Jeannie from her bottle, was an astronaut. When you were a kid, did you dream of being an astronaut when you grew up? I did not dream of going to space, it kind of scares me

3) Upon discovering Jeannie, Major Nelson's first wish was that she could speak/understand English so they could communicate. If you found a genie, what would your first wish be? probably $

4) Major Nelson's best friend was fellow astronaut Major Healey. Where did you meet your best friend? we met in high school--we traveled in the same circle; we got to be great friends in college

5) This theme song was written by Hugo Montenegro, who is better known for the music he wrote for a pair of Clint Eastwood movies (The Good, the Bad and the Ugly and A Fistful of Dollars). Do you have a favorite Clint Eastwood movie? In the Line of Fire

6) The last episode of the series was titled, "My Master, The Chili King." What ingredients make up your favorite chili recipe? I haven't made chili in awhile--I'd have to look up the recipe I use, but it does feature beans

7) Jeannie was played by Barbara Eden, who was born in Tuscon, Arizona. Summer in Tuscon can get very hot, with the mercury often reaching 100ยบ. What's your favorite season? my favorite season is late summer into early autumn

8) Anthony Nelson was played by Larry Hagman, who went on to play the villainous JR on the popular Dallas. Can you think of anything else Dallas is known for? the ridiculous "Who Shot JR" hubbub

9) In the autumn of 1965, just weeks after I Dream of Jeannie premiered, St. Louis' famous Gateway Arch was completed. An estimated 4 million tourists visit the Arch every year. Do you have any summer vacation plans? I will be going to NYC to see my friend John Cariani in Something Rotten on Broadway

In the line of fire was one of his better ones.

Sea glass is one of the coolest forms of recycling.

Going into space scares me too. Remember what happened to George when he went into space??? He's still floating around in outer space- probably with that Russian monkey. :)
