Whoa!  Wait a sec.  I think you're diving a little too deep.  You remind me
of my high school Lit teacher reading Lord of the Flies.  I'm sure there are
plenty of clues hidden in the dream sequence, but I think you are on a wild
goose chase.

I personally like the notion that the gum is Wrigley's Doublemint and the 
dwarf is referring to Laura's twin.
