The title is a nod to the "Peanuts" comic strip. "It's the great pumpkin Charlie Brown". See more
Samhain actually refers to a Celtic festival, and means 'Summer's end', not a mythological character called Samhain. There is a common misconception that Samhain referred to an ancient god of the dead. Also, "Samhain" is pronounced "SOW-in" (the first syllable rhyming with "cow") rather than "sam-hane," as it's pronounced in the episode.
While this may be true, the inspiration for the demon Samhain in this episode actually comes from "Sam Hain", the ghost of Halloween in The Real Ghostbusters who was, in turn, inspired by a fictional God of Halloween in Ray Bradbury's book, "The Halloween Tree". As these three are all fictional characters, the pronunciations of their names are, in fact, correct. See more

Your orders were to follow my orders?
It was a test to see how you would perform under battlefield conditions, you might say.
