First time poster, just to share my thoughts.
Z is one of the axis to describe position in 3D.
Control - Z = Control third dimension, go underground, or fly up. You guess what and who i have in mind. It involves moving capital and casters OFC.
Except that doesn't make any sense within the context that Parson made his quip. "Control Z" without the dash is two separate words meaning to control Z. "Control-Z" with the dash? That's one word, and in the Windows-centric realm of computer geeks (which Parson was heavily implied to be - and don't say 'He could have been running Linux or Mac or something' when we all know Windows has the lion's share of the market due to the combination of ease-of-use and affordability) it means to undo the last action done, provided such an undo is possible. You can undo moving something to the recycle bin, but you can't undo emptying the recycle bin.
Also, there's something going on here that we haven't considered.
