    • Kelly: Do you know why they call Marrakesh the "Paris of the Sahara"?
      Scotty: Yes, (points to the Koutoubia Mosque) that is the Arabian version of the Eiffel Tower you see.

    • Title
      This alludes to the Greek playwright Sophocles' three-work classic about the tragic Theban king Oedipus, who fell from lofty heights and was blinded by the treachery, deception, and family infighting around him. He eventually lives long enough to curse his sons and heirs for their greed and bless his daughter Antigone for her steadfast faithfulness.
