The <cite>Sliders</cite> joke, remember? ;><P>Just to fill in people who didn't catch the reference: <cite>Sliders</cite> was a sci-fi show that featured four people (Hero, Smart Guy, Love Interest, Token Black Man) jumping around between alternate dimensions on Earth. One of the perennial features of the show was that, since the main characters usually stuck out like sore thumbs, they made the excuse, "We're from Canada." This showed up a while as a running undercurrent through the first three seasons, but almost got to be a bad joke by the fourth season - nearly every episode included one Canada reference.<P>The joke is one Scully and I concocted in our spare time, a sort of skit where someone who actually <strong>was</strong> from Canada comes down to the area where the main events of the most recent episode had occurred, and winds up getting savagely beaten by people who think that "I'm from Canada" is a universal excuse for being an interdimensional traveler. It's funnier in context.
