Great catch, Becca!

Okay, here's a challenge for everybody.  In Archer's Goon, Howard asks 
Hathaway if he can bury money in the past for Howard to find in the future.  
Howard remembered reading a similar trick in a book.  For 2 points (or 
whatever) what book was that?

I also love The Grand Sophy.  I don't even mind Goldhanger or whatever his 
name was, even though I've been seriously affected by anti-Semitism (my dad 
is a survivor).
I want to be Sancia.  I'm just a tiny bit older than her, okay, I'm 39, but 
am told I look young for my age, and am very naturally indolent.

It is a constant amusement/bemusement to me that DWJ fans also like GH. 

Be well, all you readers...
