About the officer
Jeannie accidentally hits the accelerator while Tony is checking his car's battery, which causes her to crash the car into a light pole. the officer gives Tony a ticket for it.Later, after making sure Tony is in time for his TV program appearance at the TV station (by blinking him there) she's finagled by Carl Tucker, who owns Tucker's Cars, who also repairs broken down cars, into selling the car to him for $400, this after trying to sell it back to her for $1700!
Anyway, after returning the favor to Carl the used car lot owner, Jeannie, not wanting to drive the car unlicensed, lets the car "drive itself" back to the house, when the traffic cop stops the car again, in disbelief at what he sees!
When the cop stops her, or, rather, the car, and sees her in the backseat, he, as ahe asks "Was I speeding?", says to her, "Lady, why are you persecuting me?" "It's because I'm a cop, right? And you just hate cops, huh? I mean, everybody hates cops nowadays!"
When she and Tony are brought into the police station for questioning, Tony, with a little help from Jeannie's magic, is able to get him to believe that Jeannie is a computer (she disappears in thin air) and the car is a special remote control space device!
When Dr. Bellows arrives at the police station to find out what's going on, and the cop finds out that he's a psychiatrist, he responds "Good. Could you spare me about an hour? You see, I I think I need help!"
