The Simpsons go on vacation in a rickety RV -- and end up lost in the woods when the RV goes over a cliff.
----
!!This episode contains examples of:
* AdultFear:
** Homer looking for Bart after they both go over a waterfall.
** Also, Maggie is found by bears and taken to their cave.
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: Pretty much why the bears babysat Maggie when they could have mauled her.
* ExactWords: 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.
* FirstAppearance: Rod Flanders.
* SpecialGuest: Creator/AlbertBrooks as Cowboy Bob (credited as A. Brooks)
* ThrowItIn: 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 (making it similar to ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'s'' "The Chinese Restaurant" episode in that it's a BottleEpisode). Only a bit of the ad-libbing was used.
* WomenAreWiser: 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.
