In the book, Uncle Henry is described as a man "who worked hard from morning to night and did not know what joy was"
Also in the book the Cyclone hits in the first chapter on page 3, so there is no professor marvel, or Mrs. what's her name on the bike that takes Toto.
The wizard does get to Oz by Balloon, but he is from Omaha. He became a ventroloquist and joined the circus. He became a ballonist for the circus to go up in the balloon and draw people to the circus. The balloon ropes get twisted and freed and he floats away to oz.
His real name is never revealed and he is just called Oz, even after he is exposed as a "fraud" of sorts near the end.
We are Wizard of Oz lovers in this house. Have a lot of collectibles, teh movie, books, etc.

Haven't we learned that if its mentioned, theres a reason? A tenth of a second shot of a book on a desk started a feeding frenzy about the plot of said book. However I do like this theory that some marketing genius could make a fortune by mentioning this on a show like lost!
" I need to get me some of that clonazapam"
I'm thinking that one or more of the writers is taking it so that's why they used it. Like I said, I take it, I know a lot of people that take it or ativan or xanax, all used for anxiety and from what we hear, that being in Hollywood is very stressful, blah, blah, blah, so it wouldn't surprise me if the writers aren't all taking it for sleep/anxiety/ panic, etc.
