* HorribleCampingTrip: Homer's new RV fall off a cliff, and after a string of disasters, he eventually ends up covered in mud and mistaken for Bigfoot. [[DoubleStandard On the other]] [[MachoDisasterExpedition hand]], Marge and Lisa (who were asked to just stay put while Bart and Homer searched for help) were able to clean up their camping site and turn it downright paradisiacal (and Maggie, who had been missing and taken by ''bears'', turned out to have been found by "kind" bears).

* MachoDisasterExpedition: Bart and Homer decide to venture into the woods to seek help and tell Marge and Lisa to stay put at camp. Their experience is torturous and embarrassing. Marge and Lisa, who have absolutely no knowledge of how to camp, manage to create a pretty pleasant experience for themselves (they even lampshade that it got much easier once they managed to clean up the campsite of all debris). Maggie also finds her own experience easy, courtesy of the bears.

* ThrowItIn: According to the commentary, Albert Brooks improvised so much good material that the scene of Homer buying the RV could have been the whole episode (making it similar to ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'s'' "The Chinese Restaurant" episode in that it's a BottleEpisode). Only a bit of the ad-libbing was used.
