* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Subverted-Homer's antics get him, Bart, and the Flanderses separated from the rest of the rafts and drifting out to sea...but they also end up eventually finding a Krusty Burger on an offshore oil rig, where they're able to get food and be rescued. The rest of the campers, on the other hand, end up getting lost, stalked and seemingly killed in scenes that are ShoutOuts to ''Film/{{Deliverance}} Deliverance]]'' and ''Franchise/FridayThe13th''.

* IncompetenceInc: Krusty builds a series of Krusty Burger restaurants on ''unmanned'' oil rigs. This is pretty much the Krusty Corporation's MO, mind you.

* IWarnedYou: Everyone kept telling Krusty he was building his restaurant on an ''unmanned'' oil rig.



* PoliceAreUseless: Chief Wiggum believes that Bart and Homer must be missing for at least a week before the police searches for them, and considers his checkers game against a dog more important. When the police finally attempt a search, it is delayed because Wiggum is concerned that their supply of cold cuts and beer is understocked.

* HeroicDolphin: Lampshaded and subverted. A trio of dolphins come across the Flanders and Simpsons' boat and Ned becomes relieved as dolphins always rescue people lost at sea. The dolphins instead mock them that they're going to die and leave.

* BrokenRecord: When Ned loses hope of being rescued, he is reduced to saying, "Done-diddly-doodly-done-diddly-doddly..."



* LikeFatherLikeSon: When Bart and Homer both realise that Homer just agreed to participate in the father-son river rafting trip with Bart, they both exclaim "D'oh!" simultaneously.
* NeverMyFault: While stranded at sea, Homer laments, "Why couldn't I be on one of the smart rafts?" Keep in my that it was Homer's irresponsibility that got them into this mess.



* OrganAutonomy: When Homer gets disappointed that he found twenty dollars instead of his dropped last peanut, his brain argues that he can use the money to buy more peanuts. Later, when Homer reasons that he doesn't want to go on the father-son rafting trip with Bart and thus should answer yes when he asks, his brain points out that that's not how it works. Homer responds, "Shut up, brain, or I'll stab you with a Q-tip!"
* PoeticJustice: Homer curses this trope when he taunts Bart about his Junior Camper activities, asking if he learned to "build crappy furniture out of useless wooden logs", only for his chair to collapse.
* PoliceAreUseless: Chief Wiggum believes that Bart and Homer must be missing for at least a week before the police searches for them, and considers his checkers game against a dog more important. When the police finally attempt a search, it is delayed because Wiggum is concerned that their supply of cold cuts and beer is understocked.

--->'''Homer:''' Water, water, everywhere, so let's all have a drink!



* TemptingFate: When a seagull appears after Homer says he and the others are doomed, Ned explains that seagulls only go out to sea to die, ergo they must be near land. The seagull expires at that moment, and Homer revels in having one over Ned. Later, when Homer accidentally shoots down a plane with a flare, he reasons that when the pilot is rescued, the raft will be noticed as well. The plane that immediately rescues the pilot just carries on like the raft doesn't exist. Finally, dolphins swim up to the raft, and Ned assures everyone that they'll help those lost at sea like they always do, only for the dolphins to abandon them, leaving behind the subtitle, "You're all going to die."



* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: What happened to the other parents that were going on the raft tour? [[FridgeHorror Probably they were killed]] by the hillbillies.
