    • (Jerry finds Phil's deserted.)
      Jerry: Gee, I guess it's true. Scientists found traces of Phil's meatloaf in Zachary Taylor's remains.

      Zachary Taylor, the twelfth president of the United States of America, died in the second year of his presidency, presumably of gastroenteritis. As theories about poisoning remained persistent, his body was exhumed in 1991, at the time of this episode's original broadcast. The autopsy offered no new clues.
