    I noticed this as i was watching the rerun last night. Right before sloane called, will asked sydney something like "what's a four letter word for ice cream thickener?" and syd says "agar, a-g-a-r"

    I found this kinda funny cuz the same pronounciation of the word (but spelled AUGUR) is a synonym for "prophet" or "seer" or "soothsayer."

    Specifically, an "augur" was a roman religious official who predicted signs and omens for people in positions of power. Much like how rambaldi worked as an advisor to... ummm i think they said pope pius IX or something.

    The must have known this, and put it in there for weird people like me to find.

    You know, you must be right, they don't waste time on dialog for nothing in that show. And, remember, Will asks Sydney how she knows these things. I think that's significant, too. Is Sydney a future Rambaldi?
