I remember the scene where we met the Efreeti quite vividly.
"Don't open the flask!" we said.
He opened the flask. Whoompf! Big Efreeti. Much bigger than us. Lots of fire. Deep voice.
"Give me the flask," it said.
"Don't give it the flask!" we all insisted, horrified - it might be the only thing keeping us all alive!
"Meep," he said. He gave it the flask.
And I have a clear mental image of the DM miming throwing the flask up in the air, and doing the "six-gun fingers" thing to indicate blowing it out of the sky with fireball-at-will... It was a very cool moment
It promised to leave us alive today, and left.
"Oh yeah," we thought. "We're in trouble."
