* 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.



* 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.

* 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!

* ContinuityNod: Peter mentions his old fishing job which hasn't been mentioned since the middle of the fourth season. Lois doesn't remember it. For those who don't remember it, it happened after Peter lost his job at "Happy Go Lucky Toys" following his boss's death (from the pre-cancellation era) and before he took his current job at the Pawtucket Brewery.
** He also mentions [[DemotedToExtra Santos and Pasquale]], whom he calls "Portuguese Consuelas".

* TranquilFury: Joe lets out only one sentence that conveys this trope after he sees Jeff beating Brenda, and he conveys it beautifully.
-->'''Joe:''' Let's waste this dick.

* KarmicDeath: Quagmire was able to finish off Jeff by running him into a tree.



* KnightOfCerebus: Jeff, who unlike all the other villains on the show who show that they are too 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).

* CrazyJealousGuy: Jeff gets a wee bit upset when Brenda hugs her brother after he woke up in the hospital. As hard as it is to believe, even ''Peter'' states how bad his reaction was.

* VictimBlaming: While performing an intervention for his abused sister, Quagmire states that ''Brenda'' has made the choice to stay in an abusive relationship. Not only that, but his sister is no longer a woman, but a person and a punching bag. Never mind that she's in an abusive relationship and sometimes the abuser takes full control over the victim. In this case, it's Brenda's fault.
