As with the remaining first four episodes of the season, the title of the episode was derived from 1930s and 1940s radio programs, particularly the radio thriller anthology "Suspense", which featured several elements pertaining to death and murder. This convention was later dropped following the fifth episode of the season, Family Guy: A Hero Sits Next Door (1999) due to individual episodes becoming difficult to identify and distinguish.
