For those of you who don’t get that last panel, here’s a link for you. This might also give you a tiny clue about Connie and where she’s coming from (or really, why she seems a bit out of place). Along with some of the other hints I’ve dropped, of course, you can start to put together some of it.
For you real sticklers, I just chose the Klondike exchange because it was funny and more people recognize it (they used it in Back to the Future, even). No indication of locality is implied, or even actually important.
