only for the tornado to suddenly get sucked up back into the clouds.Calvin remarks on how easy that was, but Hobbes notes that the tornado had merely touched down elsewhere.

- Calvin: Shall I sing it for you?Hobbes: No.
- Acid Reflux Nightmare: Discussed when the duo talk about Hobbes' dream about tornadoes.
- Anti-Climax: Subverted; the tornado appears to simply have been sucked back up into the clouds, but Hobbes points out that it merely touched down elsewhere.
- Do Not Touch the Funnel Cloud: Averted, as in the first part.
- Gravity Is a Harsh Mistress: Calvin after transmogrifying the tornado.
- I Can't Hear You: The example from the last part is subverted; Calvin knew what Hobbes was saying on the roof all along.
- Insistent Terminology: The elder hawk refuses to call tornadoes by their name, only referring to them as "cyclones". This ends up becoming a downplayed and Played for Laughs version of Poor Communication Kills.
- It Makes Sense in Context: In-Universe example when Calvin's parents arrive home to several farm animals standing in their front yard.
- My Friends... and Zoidberg:Calvin: Well. We've saved our home from total havoc.Hobbes: What about everybody else?Calvin: Uh... Yeah. Them too.

- Shout-Out/Plagiarism: This line seems awfully reminiscent of SpongeBob SquarePants:Hobbes: Calvin, I rolled up your Captain Napalm comic and used it to clean out my ears!
Calvin: Shall I sing it for you?Hobbes: No.
- This exchange, however, is definitely a Shout-Out:
- On the other hand, the entire scene with the hawks is ripped off from Hank the Cowdog. note
- Smoke Out: How Calvin escapes from the two hawks.
- Time for Plan B: Calvin's Plan B is rocketing straight towards the tornado.
- Title Drop: By Hobbes:"I was just thinking. Remember that dream I had this morning? It was about a funnel, remember? We actually saw and fought against a funnel! A Black Turning Funnel!"
- Why Didn'tYouJustSaySo: Wallace's Insistent Terminology results in a Type B.
