Added DiffLines:

* ProtagonistCenteredMorality:
** Because Jeff beats Brenda for little to no reason, he deserves to die. Peter Griffin, on the other hand, regularly uses his daughter Meg as a punching bag (often [[ItAmusedMe for his own amusement]]), and yet he is supposedly in the right for trying to help Quagmire kill Jeff.
** Quagmire the SerialRapist is somehow a hero compared to Jeff.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseLaw: Joe claims that he cannot arrest Jeff unless Brenda herself reports him for his behaviour. While that is true of abusive relationships that are happening behind close doors [[NeverTrustATitle (as the episode's title would suggest)]], in this case, Joe is not able to prosecute Jeff even if he physically beats Brenda ''right in front of him''.


Added DiffLines:

* NeverTrustATitle: A main criticism of the episode. For an episode titled ''Screams Of Silence'', the majority of Jeff's abuse towards Brenda is shown publicly in front of all the other characters. [[CriticalResearchFailure Yet the episode still claims the other characters can do nothing about it]].

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Quagmire made one to his sister, which unusually for the trope, is a TearJerker.
-->''I call you a person instead of a woman, because a woman embraces life. Sadly, you have made a decision to stay with Jeff, a decision that made your life worse. The girl I knew growing up is gone... I want that girl back... *In tears* I want my sister back.''

* KnightOfCerebus: Jeff, who unlike all the other villains on the show who also suffer from the random humor of the show, has no comedic qualities whatsoever. He is involved in two comedic moments that break his darker personality, but there brought up by Peter (holding his hands as his shirt goes up) and Quagmire (saying that the baby will grow up with a uncle as he has a brother).

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Quagmire's speech to Brenda. Considering how Quagmire treats women like sex objects (and often date rapes them), hearing him tell Brenda that women are beautiful, strong, vibrant, and don't deserve to be punching bags to men, you know he's not as misogynistic as the episode's play him out to be. On the other hand... well, see VictimBlaming below.

* TruthInTelevision: Sadly, some parts of the way domestic violence is portrayed here actually does happen in real life, right down to Brenda trying to cover for Jeff's abuse by blaming herself. Similarly, Joe's line about police not intervening until its too late is pretty real for any crime.

* ArtisticLicense: By all accounts, domestic abuse is rarely this over-the-top and, if anything, worse because of how subtle and personal the abuser makes it.



* RealitySubtext: Sure the whole episode is this, but Joe's line about police not intervening until its too late is pretty real for any crime.

* CluelessAesop: Sorry, writers, but you can't do a VerySpecialEpisode about domestic violence and sexual abuse when you regularly play it for laughs.

* MurderIsTheBestSolution: A particularly infamous case. The episode suggests that the best, if not ''only'' way to save an abuse victim is to outright ''kill'' the abuser! Not arrest them. Not give ''them'' an intervention like they did with the victim. Not even kill them in your own home. Just take them out in the woods and pull the trigger!
