Just at the end, when Tony is explaining how he lost the pearls, he starts to say something about the goat but changes the wording quickly enough so as to not draw attention to the fact he didn't know the goat was in the house. He only learned about the goat when Jeannie mentioned she bought the goat for the wool. He couldn't have known it was in the house at all. See more »

Jeannie the knit wit
29 October 2016 | by kevinolzakSee all my reviews

"An Astronaut in Sheep's Clothing" celebrates the six month anniversary since Tony married Jeannie, featuring Don Dubbins (not seen since the original pilot) as Commander Jay Russell, forced to salute Gen. Schaeffer with one sleeve six inches longer than the other because his wife knitted him a sweater for a gift. Tony wants his wife to do something similar, not extravagant, so she too decides to do some knitting of her own, despite not knowing how to do it. Roger offers her tips on using cashmere, so she goes out and buys a Tibetan goat, which reminds him to get rid of his cashmere sweaters! She must then hide the presence of the hungry uniform eating goat from her suspicious husband. For once, Tony comes to the aid of Dr. Bellows when Amanda spies her favorite plant in his office, hurriedly rushing it back over to the doctor just in time for her to 'surprise' him.
