  • Upon being caught, Miss Fire sings "How dry I am". This is a lyric of indeterminate origin, but it is commonly associated with the song "The Near Future", written by Irving Berlin for the stage show Ziegfeld Follies of 1919. It was later co-opted by the temperance movement, but has also been used as a drinking song/request for alcohol.
