The Henry Gale reference was one of many Oz nods in the TV series LOST!
From LOSTPEDIA, the Lost Encyclopedia:
In the episode Lockdown, Locke is on the floor with the blast door crushing his leg. When the blast door opens and “Henry Gale” runs to him, Locke says “You came back.” Ben/Henry says “Well of course I did. What did you think, I was going to leave you here?”
In the Wizard of Oz movie there is a scene with Dorothy locked in a room at the witch’s tower. The Tin Man busts through the door. Dorothy says “You came back.” And the Tin Man says “Well of course we would Dorothy, what did you think, we were going to leave you here?”
Want a piece of the Wizard’s Balloon?
Indiana Beagle is trying to convince Wizzo to cut up some of those zillion-square-feet of orange balloon remnants from LOST! into do-rags or pocket puffs or pirate sashes or something and give them to rabbit holers who come to a special Beagle event at the Academy. Or maybe he could mail them to people who throw in a few bucks toward finishing the North Star approach to the tower.
Got any ideas for me and Indy to share with the wizard?
