Default Magic Lamp with multiple monsters

i) At the link below, you can find an episode of Tabletop where Wil Wheaton plays Munchkin with three guests, one of whom is Jackson himself.

At the 20:46 mark, a player kicks the door and finds the Wight Brothers (Undead, lvl16, the player gets 2 levels and 4 treasures for beating them). She can indeed beat the Brothers by herself, but another player plays a Mate.
Now, if the player beats the Monsters, they get 4 levels and 8 treasures. So far so good.

Now, the first player plays Magic Lamp. The Magic Lamp says that [card text deleted].

But the player is facing another monster after one is vanished (either the Brothers or the Mate) so the underscored does not apply.

I am a bit confused by the wording; does "vanished" means "defeated"?
If no, then the player gets 2 levels and 4 treasure for beating the other monster.
If yes, then the player gets 4 levels and 8 treasures.

Steve Jackson says during the game that if no one messes with the player, the player gets 2 level and 8 treasures. I do not understand why, though.

This was an error on the TableTop episode. When using Magic Lamp with more than one monster, the monster that is removed with the Magic Lamp goes away along with its Treasure. This is a defeat, but not a kill, and you do not get levels for that monster.

If you use Magic Lamp on a solo monster, you do get its Treasure, by the wording on the Magic Lamp card itself.

I should also mention that the TableTop episode was fairly severely edited for time (the game was shot over a period of two hours, including a short break to interview the players) and so some things that seem like errors are the result of editing. This wasn't one of them, however.

You are very welcome, and I apologize for the confusion in user names that led me to overreact. I hope you'll stay around awhile.
