      • Alton: Good evening and welcome again to the food gallery. Tonight we stroll my favorite exhibit, Heartbreak Hall. Here we house those recipes, which despite lavishings of time, attention and money tend to bite the hand of those that make them: Beef Wellington, the soufflé, bouillabaisse. My that doesn't look very good, does it? And of course, tonight's featured dish of doom, the cheesecake. Oh, I know, those luscious lovelies that so often populate the pages of the popular press are seductive. But all too often, reality is not.

      • Alton: Ladies and gentlemen. In light of the events in the past half hour, it seems clear that the inclusion of cheesecake in Heartbreak Hall is all a terrible misunderstanding. After all, cheesecake is nothing but a few basic, wholesome ingredients combined by a simple equation to delicious results. What horror will come to occupy this new vacancy? Perhaps we'll find out the next time we visit the Food Gallery.

      • Food Gallery
        The darkened set as well as Alton's suit and somber mein call to mind Rod Serling's horror series, Night Gallery. Each week, Serling would introduce a macabre tale with a disturbing museum "exhibit" in a way similar to Alton's introduction to this episode.

      • The Trouble With Cheesecake
        The title may refer to the 1955 movie "The Trouble With Harry," or to the 1967 Star Trek episode, "The Trouble With Tribbles."
