Recap: The Simpsons S 1 E 7 The Call Of The Simpsons
Episode - 7G09
First Aired - 2/18/1990

The Simpsons go on vacation in a rickety RV — and end up lost in the woods when the RV goes over a cliff.

Tropes:

  • 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.
