In regard to the business about "The gum you like...", I think the typical
a.tv.tp over-analysis has obscured the true meaning. If we check the closed-
captioning I'm sure we'll find the correct quote to be "The Gumm you like...",
referring of course to Frances Gumm (aka Judy Garland). You see, the clue is
actually a portent of an another Wizard of Oz allusion (we've seen two already).

My prediction: Major Briggs, upon recovering from his truth-serum-induced funk,
dispatches Windom Earle with a handy bucket of water.

Then again, maybe not.
