THE NULL SOLUTION = Episode 98
…“Harmonia sounds like it could be a utopia, as in Valhalla or Camelot. Are you suggesting that literature is the key?” The Classics was not Roy Crippen’s favorite class in school…
Gus McKinney cannot keep quiet.
“The Chinese think we are the culprits and you are guessing Dr. Seuss’ ghost? How about you Fitch, what’s your theory?” Roy posits.

“I have programmed Watson III to solve the riddle every single day at Midnight.”
“It hasn’t solved it though, so what’s your point?”
“Well, seven times in 7 different languages, the term “harmonia” has been Watson’s final conclusion.”
“There is ammonia present in Mars’ refreshed atmosphere; we’ve known that for years.”
“Harmonia sounds like it could be a utopia, as in Valhalla or Camelot. Are you suggesting that literature is the key?” The Classics was not Roy’s favorite in school. He got a weak C in the class.

“We just went over it with a fine tooth comb last week, right, Fitch?”
“The SOL drive is as amazing as ever Gus!”
