Synopsis

Visiting a garage sale with her friend, Mary Ellen, Janice Hamill stumbles upon a golden lamp that is engraved "Rub me and your wish will come true; Certain restrictions may apply". When Janice rubs the lamp, she is transported to the Department of Magical Venues, a bank-like room where one of the workers begins to write up her three wishes.

After overcoming her confusion, Janice requests $10,000,000, to look 10 years younger, and for her ex-husband, Craig, to suffer moderate sexual dysfunction for 18 months. The bank worker, her "broker", gives her a stack of papers to sign, tells her that she will have to pay taxes on the wishes, and then he directs her to stand in a long line at the validation window to get her wishes approved.

After finally getting to the front of the line, Janice is told that she is missing a form, and is directed back to her broker, only to find that he has been dismissed for an error he allegedly committed. She confronts the head of the department, but he tells her that it is quitting time and everyone disappears. Frustrated, Janice wishes she had never found the lamp in the first place, and she is transported back to the garage sale to the moments before she originally found the lamp, but this time she leaves for a "sale at Fashion Square" before she gets to the lamp...

Syndication

This episode became the second segment, in a shared half-hour run time with "Tooth and Consequences" for syndication, as recently shown on the Chiller TV network.

Trivia

The black hats the employees wear as they prepare to leave are painted Energy Domes, and the raised "DEVO" lettering can be clearly seen when one falls off an actor's head.
