    • Episode Title: It could also be a reference to Exodus 2:22: "And she bare him a son, and Moses called his name Gershom, for he said, I have been a stranger in a strange land."

      Gershom is a Hebrew name that means "exile" (according to Hanks and Hodges' A Dictionary of First Names) or that can also literally mean "Stranger" (from the phrase "ger sham").

      "Stranger in a strange land" is also the title of a Robert A. Heinlein novel, in which the main character has special abilities, including the ability to make things and people disappear. The book is also where the word "grok" originates.
