When Fakrash (Burl Ives) first emerges from the bottle, he hears Tony Randall speaking modern English -- a language unfamiliar to him. He presses his hand against Randall's forehead for a moment, then says (quoting from memory): “Thy tongue is as strange to me as thy appearance. I took the moment to learn to speak it.”
So if the genie learned English from reading Tony Randall's mind, how come he uses archaic pronouns like “thee” and “thy”? Did Randall have Quaker ancestors, maybe?
All the universe . . . or nothingness. Which shall it be, Passworthy? Which shall it be?
