Plot Overview

Jeannie tells Tony she never had a birthday party since she does not know when she was born. Tony sends her back home to find out. At the base, Gen. Peterson and Dr. Bellows introduce Tony to Eric, a huge computer. Jeannie returns and reports that all she has been able to learn is that Neptune was in Scorpio when she was born. Jeannie tells Tony that if he really cared, he would find out her birthday. After breaking a vase, Jeannie reveals that her powers weaken when she is unhappy, and, that her body will gradually disappear. She tells Tony she will have to leave if she doesn't get a birthday. Roger agrees to help Tony use Eric to learn Jeannie 's birthday. Tony is waiting for the computer's answer when Dr. Bellows enters the control room. Annoyed that Tony has used the machine. for such a frivolous purpose as a B.C. birth date, Bellows tears up the tape and puts it in his pocket. Dr. Bellows reports Tony's strange interest in an ancient date to Gen. Peterson. Peterson orders Bellows to allow Tony to use the computer, but to brim the computer tape to him. At his office, Tony reassures Jeannie. Because her powers are fading, when Jeannie tries to leave, she winds up in Tony's desk drawer. Tony and Jeannie are horrified when Bellows decides to use Tony's office. Tony and Roger rush to get Jeannie's birth date from the computer, although Roger suspects a trap.
