* 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 it's too late is pretty real for any crime.

* FlatCharacter: Brenda and Jeff. They show up for exactly one episode to say abuse is bad and then disappear.

* PowerFantasy: The episode is definetly more this than it is a VerySpecialEpisode about domestic violence: Quagmire is the chivalrous hero who saves his DamselInDistress sister from her evil abusive boyfriend.

* 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]].
