The episode “The Princess and the Pear” of the TV series Bones is about the murder of a “princess” (actually a booth babe at a convention playing a princess). The title seems to be an allusion to “The Princess and the Pea”, but I didn't notice anything about a pear in the episode.

What does the pear in the title of the episode refer to?

From IMDB:

The murder weapon was a "medieval torture device" called the "Pear of Anguish." The device was inserted into the victim's mouth and then slowly opened, crushing the orifice outward.
