Allusions[edit | edit source]

  • The title of this episode refers to the Magic Bullet Theory, which was a legal concept conceived by the Warren Commission in relation to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, who was murdered in Dallas, Texas on November 22nd, 1963. The theory posits that a single bullet was responsible for multiple wounds, lending to the Commission's conclusion that Kennedy was assassinated by a single shooter. It is a theory that is largely disbelieved by many analysts.
  • The opening song from this episode is "Wouldn't It Be Nice" by The Beach Boys. It is the opening track off their 1966 album, Pet Sounds.
