As Dr. Bellows informs Roger and Tony of their latest assignment - to entertain Gregorian, a Russian cosmonaut - Tony gets a call from Jeannie to bail her out of jail. She was arrested in connection with the theft of $2,000 in merchandise from stores. Jeannie rationalizes her actions by saying she was trying to "charge" the items. After noting the store managers agreed to drop the charges in lieu of their paying for everything, Tony explains the meaning of credit and proceeds to put his new wife on a budget. Uh-oh, that's when major problems begin. First, when Tony brings Gregorian home for dinner, Jeannie serves a "budget meal" half a TV dinner and stale bread to each of the two. Later, Jeannie announces a hippie couple will be boarders. Gregorian - who was equally as impressed at the finely decorated Nelson home - is aghast, as an embarassed Tony tries to explain.
