About Kato and Jeannie's dinner for Tony
After Jeannie ruins Tony's planned dinner for his fiancee Melissa and her dad, the General, when she puts the frozen boxes of peas and mashed potatoes which Tony had pots of water prepared for directly on the range burners, she is able to make up for ruining the kitchen, not to mention the dinner, by quickly blinking herself into the identity of Kato, in preparing an Asian style dinner as Melissa and her father arrived at Tony's place.
Kato, or Jeannie's dinner impressed the Stones, particularly Melissa, so much that she gave an offer to Kato, not knowing that Kato is Jeannie, the offer of becoming the General's personal chef as he prepared for his new European Ambassador job!
