Title: The episode title "Morton's Fork" is a logical dilemma in which people are faced with two equally bad options. Faced with this dilemma, a person must find or create an exception or the outcome of the situation will probably be unwanted since there can be no good outcome from any of the victim's choices. It is thought to be named after the English Lord Chancellor John Morton who worked under Henry VII. According to Morton's logic, wealthy Crown subjects had money to spare for taxes, and poor subjects must have savings so they too could bear the high taxes. Thus, rich and poor fell to the points of "Morton's Fork" as regards paying high taxes. See more
