Gary, Wyatt, and Lisa all decide to go clubbing after hours and become ""creatures of the night."" Lisa turns them all into cool vampires, except the fact that they crave Yoo-Hoo instead of blood.

In the end, the guys both get dissed by Valerie as she chooses an evil funhouse clown over the both of them.
In order to let Wyatt try some different careers for later in life, Lisa zaps up some magical chocolates.

However, trouble occurs when his powers wear off while he's trying to stop some homicidal maniacs.

However, trouble is in store when Al Wallace tries to take on the Donnellis family. Gary and Wyatt find themselves against each other in the war.

She then takes control of Lisa herself and has Lisa erase Wyatt and Gary's minds of the fact that they ever had a genie. Phoebe also becomes the host of her own daytime talk show, very similar to ""Sally."" The only thing that can help the boys remember is the fact that Wyatt keeps a daily diary-- I mean journal.
