    • Wayne Federman: It's a Silence of the Lambs meets Greatest Story Ever Told type thing.

      Two films. Silence of the Lambs is a thriller about the cannibal Hannibal Lecter who aids an FBI agent (Jodie Foster, who was already mentioned earlier in the episode) in the search for a murderer. For the sequel to this movie, Hannibal, Jodi Foster declined to return as the Clarisse Starling. Gillian Anderson was briefly considered to replace her, but her contract with X-Files did not allow her to take a role as another FBI agent.

      Greatest Story Ever Told is a drama about the life of Jesus Christ.
