From Whom the Eps Stole

In this case, it's Hemingway.

At least 30 series have eps named after Hemingway's epic novel, For Whom the Bell Tolls. This Friday you can watch an Ernest-titled episode on ''Bernie Mac.'' One year earlier—almost to the day—you may have watched a Papa-inspired showing of ''Complete Savages.''

Of course, ep names use some common things that toll. Jingle Bells. Wedding Bells. And even whistles. But there are some clever variations.

  • For Whom the Belch Tolls (''Home Improvement,'' 1/14/1992)
  • For Whom the Bell Tolls . . . and Tolls . . . and Tolls (''The Partridge Family,'' 1/12/1973)
