  • Be Careful What You Wish For
  • Cool Old Guy: The King is probably one of the coolest guys in the show, temperament wise.
  • Forgot About His Powers: For some reason, Emma's lie detecting skills completely fail where Sidney is concerned.
  • Ironic Hell: It wouldn't be a genie story if this didnt happen to somebody. Doubly ironic in that the victim is the genie himself.
  • The Mole
  • Nice Guy: The King, again. Makes it all the worse that his last words were ones of cyniscm and regret.
  • Punny Name: Sid is revealed to be the face in the magic mirror(s), because he's "Sidney Glass" or he i(s in de glass).
