Added DiffLines:

* ExactWords: When Nelson says [[BaitAndSwitchComment Milhouse's glasses will help to make a fire]], it seems he'll use them to focus sun rays. He instead uses them and a rock to make friction.

* TheMillstone / NiceJobBreakingItHero: Milhouse throwing the grapefruit caused Otto to crash the bus into the ocean.

to:

* TheMillstone / NiceJobBreakingItHero: TheMillstone: All things considered, Milhouse throwing causes nothing but trouble in this episode. He threw the grapefruit that caused Otto to crash the bus into and strand everyone on the ocean.island, forced Bart and Lisa to carry him while they were being chased by the angry mob, and still left them to die after they did everything they could to protect him. And while he was right about the monster stealing all the food, he still ate some behind everyone's backs when it needed to be rationed.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Expy}}: Some characters assume similar roles to the major players in ''Lord of the Flies''.
** Bart is Ralph, as both assume the role of leadership.
** Nelson is a stand-in for Jack. Both are violent antagonists who drive the children to savagery.
** Lisa and Milhouse [[DecompositeCharacter divide Piggy's role]]. Lisa is the voice of reason who tries to keep everyone civilized, while Milhouse is the physically-incapable [[TheLoad Load]] and {{Scapegoat}} whose glasses are used to start a fire.

Added DiffLines:

* SmashCut: After finding out that the boar feeds by licking slime molds off of rocks, [[StrawVegetarian Lisa]] proclaims that they now have a food source, and thus are saved. The scene then cuts to the boar being spit-roasted, the other kids finally getting a decent meal, while Lisa sullenly licks slime off a rock.

Added DiffLines:

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Bart of all people shows a surprising amount of clemency as the de facto leader of the children, giving Milhouse a fair trial and finding him not guilty due to lack of incriminating evidence beyond a reasonable doubt. It's deconstructed of course, as his rational authority alone can't quell an angry mob.


Added DiffLines:

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: The last we see of Otto is that he's taken aboard a Chinese boat where the sailors intend on selling him into slavery.

* DirtyCoward: Milhouse forces Bart and Lisa to carry him when they are running from the others and when he swings over a gap, throws the vine down despite their pleas to throw it back and abandons them.

** ''Film/DasBoot'' (what the title is referencing). For the record, the proper German grammar is ''Der'' Bus.

* GratuitousGerman: The episode title is more a case of AsLongAsItSoundsForeign, because the correct word would be "Der Bus".



* ShoutOut: ''Film/DasBoot'' (what the title is referencing). For the record, the proper German grammar is ''Der'' Bus.

** Bart represents Libya and wears CoolShades, much like UsefulNotes/MuammarGaddafi.


Added DiffLines:

** Bart tries to convince the children to built a group of treehouses while they are on the island, just like in ''Film/TheSwissFamilyRobinson''. Naturally reality is not as fun as in this movie.


Added DiffLines:

* ThereIsNoGod: After having watched a Bible movie Homer calls God "his favorite fictional character."
* TimeMarchesOn: Bart represents Libya during UN class and wears the same CoolShades and showcases the same anti-American attitude as their former leader UsefulNotes/MuammarGaddafi. Needless to say that this segment is less comprehensible since Gaddafi was ousted from power in 2011.
