      • Roald Dahl: When writing stories, I cannot seem to rid myself of the unfortunate habit of having one person do nasty things to another person. In this particular story, the nasty thing that one person does to the other is far, far nastier than would appear at first sight. I therefore invite you, when it is all over, to sit back and allow your imaginations to explore and to relish all the things that took place when you were not looking.

    • NOTES (1)

      • This episode is based on Roald Dahl's story The Way up to Heaven, first published in The New Yorker magazine on 27 February 1954.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • The title is an allusion to a song by Guster from the album Lost and Gone Forever called All the way up to Heaven. The lyrics are by Ryan Miller:

        "He said to only look up
        He said to never look down
        Down is where we came from
        He said to hope for the best
        And take a load off my chest
        Soon I could be happy
        And go all the way
        Up to heaven
        And go all the way
        Back home."
