How to toast the competition: “I Dream of Jeannie” edition

December 4, 2009

I Dream of Jeannie and Barbara Eden would like to show you how to toast the competition.

That is how you make an entrance. Hasta la pasta, brunette.

JEANNIE: What was that one doing here, Master?
TONY: That one was my fiancee.
JEANNIE: (indignantly) Thou art kidding! … I can do much more for thee than she can.

Sold.
