The Simpsons go on vacation in a rickety RV — and end up lost in the woods when the RV goes over a cliff.
- Because You Were Nice to Me: Pretty much why the bears babysat Maggie when they could have mauled her.
- Exact Words: When Cowboy Bob said Homer couldn't buy anything better than the ricket RV he was selling, he didn't mean it in a nice way.
- Special Guest: Albert Brooks as Cowboy Bob (credited as A. Brooks)
- Throw It In: 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. A bit of it was used.
- Women Are Wiser: Marge and Lisa manage to competently build shelter in the wild, while Bart and Homer, being the experienced woodsman he is, spend the night frozen, mauled and starved.
