* If Carl Maitland is stuck reliving the same accident over and over, and Ralph Jason is immortal thanks to his wife's wish, how can the Crypt Keeper send them to Hell? And isn't it kind of redundant to do so anyway?
** It is likely that he was NOT stuck into this and that the second time he died for good. As for Jason it is a plothole though it could be explained by his friend taking the statue and wishing for him to die and rest in peace. The statue wouldn't have to twist the wish at all to make him suffer, all things considered.

* It seemed a bit odd that the Crypt Keeper just happens to have all those skeletons he (ab)uses as props. But then I remember it's set in a ''crypt'' where assuredly a lot of dead bodies would be buried.
** Which in other words mean that it's not really Fridge Brilliance at all but more of [[CaptainObvious common sense]].
* In "You, Murderer", it's very obvious that HumphreyBogart is digitally inserted and very distractingly so when seen alongside John Lithgow's character or anyone else. But consider that the protagonist of "You, Murderer" underwent drastic plastic surgery to resemble Bogart, so of course he would really stick out.

*** Not to mention, what happened to the daughter of the woman after that night? Did the BadSanta kill her too? Did he leave her alone after killing her mother? Did the daughter grow normally or suffer mental illness later on?

*** Not to mention, what happened to the daughter of the woman after that night? Did Sure, the BadSanta kill her too? Did he leave her alone after killing her mother? Did Crypt Keeper tells us that the killer didn't hurt her. But did the daughter grow normally normally, or suffer mental illness later on?

* "Top Billing" has some rather nasty FridgeHorror in the twist ending. As if the reveal that the down-on-his-luck actor was really auditioning for the part of [[spoiler: Yorick's skull]] wasn't bad enough, it turns out that Nelson Halliwell and the others are really [[spoiler:patients in an insane asylum where the entire staff has been killed. While the episode ends with police coming over to take care of the situation, the very last shot is of the hapless actor's discarded face being carried off by a ravenous dog, which may end up developing a taste for human flesh!]]

* Speaking of which, the restaurant in "What's Cookin'," whether it's called "Fred & Erma's" or [[spoiler: "Farley's Flame-Broiled,"]] ''remains open for business!'' [[spoiler: So who'll be tomorrow's "black and blue" or "slab of moo"?]]

*** More immediately, it means that [[spoiler: Lou's own murderers aren't just dead at the end, they're ''consciously trapped under the car'' in the grave they'd dug for him!]]

* "My Brother's Keeper" ends with the creepy implication that Frank is going to act a lot like Eddie did. And considering Eddie was crude, abrasive, and not above murder when something went wrong...
