First, it's based on word association. A wormhole is a portal, which sounds like Portman, so that connection was made. Portman controlled the portal. A wormhole is seen as a way to get from one end of the universe to another without having to spend thousands of light years doing so. It's often imagined as a tunnel in science fiction, especially in Star Wars and Star Trek movies, but it could be a beam of light, for all we know.

Second, "wormhole" is slang for "vagina." When Kyle finally got Matalie Portman to open her wormhole, Portman went behind Plymouth Rock, did a handstand and opened up her legs, showing her vagina to the adults around her, but keeping it hidden behind the Rock from the viewers. A beam of light shot out of the vagina - er, the portal - and Miles Standish jumped into the beam to go to planet Plymouth.

There's another connection in that Natalie Portman often has sexual roles in her mvoies, which means her wormhole has gotten some action before this episode came along. ;)

Thanks man. What you said was more or less what i got from the joke, but wasnt quite sure because of all the celebrity topicality usually involved in some of the chapters.
