Debbie's Quest Begins(Debbie arrives in the desert on her quest to find the missing golden bells. T-Shirt sees this in T-Bagís saucer, he warns T-Bag and she raises the temperature in the desert to an unbearable level).
Acme Bird CompanyT-Shirt: Who's a clever boy then? (He uses his magic to change costume). Yu-hoo.
I've won, I've wonT-Bag: T-Shirt, Iíve won Iíve won now that I have this gold bell Iíve won. Mind you if I hadnít imprisoned that stupid genie in the bottle he would have gone and granted the dreadful Deborah three wishes. Iíve wooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn!
First wish, second wish, third wishThe Genie: Your second wish has been carried out, o Mistress.
"The Dismembered Hand"
When T-Shirt is in the T-Room and releases the Genie from the bottle, inbetween the Genie disappearing and T-Bag reappearing there is a dismembered hand at the right-bottom side of the screen.
The Genie: I'll bid you good day, and be on my way. Bye!
T-Bag: Hello I've got the bell and all's well.
This is very tricky to spot as it is only visible for a few frames (blink and you'll miss it). The hand does not belong to Elizabeth Estensen (T-Bag) as it has no nail varnish so is most likely to be one of the cast.
When T-Bag tricks the Genie into the bottle she magics herself back to the T-Room and leaves the bottle on the table. In the next scene when she magics herself to get the bell from Omar and T-Shirt reappears in the T-Room the bottle has gone, the cup and saucer are also separated. The next scene in the T-Room when T-Shirt walks back in the bottle is back and the cup and saucer are together.
Watch the birdcage carefully during this episode, where whenever there is a locked-camera disappearing/reappearing effect (characters disappearing/appearing, the bird(s) can't keep still, so whereas the actors seem not to move, one minute the bird's tail is in the air, the next it's sitting normally!
