The question "What is you favorite color?" and Jack's hasty incorrect response are references to the Bridge of Death scene from Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Incidentally, red, Jack's favorite color is prominently featured in this episode

The worm's final question is a take on Raymond Smullyan's "Knights and Knaves" logic puzzle

Jeremy's Review

The short stories are amusing for the most part, featuring a running theme of deception. Though brief, the second segment is surprisingly creepy. Unfortunately, the episode as a whole is somewhat lacking, playing like a series of disjointed incomplete plot threads. C
