    • The title of this episode, "A Horse Divided" is a pun on the quote from (most famously) Abraham Lincoln's speech of June 16, 1858, in his acceptance of the nomination to be the senator of Illinois. The full line from Lincoln's speech is, "A house divided against itself cannot stand." This is, in turn, from the Bible, Matthew 12:25, which says, "Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand."
