I Dream of Jeannie

[Cue music]

[Animated sequence begins playing. Smoke curls up from the Marlboros that have spontaneously ignited. Having acquired consciousness, they begin to rise, a nation of spongy space creatures, eyes feral with dawning reticence.]

"Hello? Hello? Anyone there?"

"I burn, therefore I am."

"Who is my Roller?"

[The smoke clears and the episode begins.]

I am a holy-roller. You may think you know what this means. That makes you a smart-ass, & definitely less holy, but if holiness is what you're into, what are you doing on the set, said the smoking extra.

Wake up, wake up, it's only a dream, "Jeannie"

But she was lost to them forever.
