  • Tantalus was the name of a glutton in Greek myth. After he died, the gods punished him for his sins by placing him in a river, near a fruit tree. When he sought water, the river lowered; when he tried for food, the tree bent away from him. He was always hungry and thirsty, but forever denied nourishment. Words such as 'tantalize' come from his name. Dr. Adams worked to rehabilitate prisoners, and came tantalizingly close to a successful technique. In the episode, It is possible that this world, a place of punishment, is also named for this legendary character, as well as the facility itself.
