    • The Raven

      One of classic horror author Edgar Allen Poe's most popular and well-remembered works, it's a narrative poem about a young scholar who recently lost his lover and is driven mad by a raven in his home that can only say the word "Nevermore".

      In this episode, upon being advised to make amends karmically before his bad actions catch up to him, Roger snaps at Colin, "why don't you just perch on my mantle and keep saying 'Nevermore'?". This is of course, a reference to the famous poem.
