Added DiffLines:

*DestructoNookie: Lrr and Ndnd tell Fry, Leela, and Bender to retreat to a, "safe, 500 meter radius." when they start having sex, and the episode ends with them desperately running for their lives.

Added DiffLines:

* MirrorReveal: Fry has just had his "human horn" (nose) stolen by alien poachers. Zoidberg agrees to tell him tactfully and promptly shouts "[[BrutalHonesty Fry your nose is gone! We know not where it is but on your face it is not!]]". Bender then shoves a mirror in his face and invokes this trope.

Added DiffLines:

** The long random tube used to suck Fry into the saucer is copied from Windows 95 3D Pipes screensaver.


While on a campiing trip, Fry's nose is stolen by aliens because 'human horns' are used by some species as an aphrodisiac. They track the nose to Lrrr, of the planet Omicron Persei VIII, whose marriage with Ndnd is on the rocks. Then Lrrr gets it into his head that he needs Fry's ''lower'' horn...!

Added DiffLines:

* DreadfulMusician: While Leela is usually extremely competent at just about anything, singing falls into the small number of things she's catastrophically bad at. Lrrr and Ndnd are so horrified by her rendition of "I Will Always Love You" that they decided to harvest Fry's "lower horn" there and then, and get out of there.


* GroinAttack: Averting this for Fry becomes the point of the second half of the episode.

* HurricaneOfEuphemisms: The entire third act, as helpfully pointed out by Bender.

Added DiffLines:

* RunningGag: The last act has Bender constantly cracking jokes about all the double entendres involving Fry's "lower horn".
-->'''Lrrr:''' Mmm, this jerked chicken is good. I think I'll have Fry's lower horn jerked.\\
'''Bender:''' [[ADateWithRosiePalms It's used to it.]] Whoooo!


Added DiffLines:

* UnusualEuphemism: Fry's genitals are frequently referred to as his "lower horn".


* NotSoDifferent: After stopping the ranger from cutting off Bigfoot's feet, he realizes that wanting to cut off Fry's "lower horn" is no different. He asks himself, "Am I any better that this man and his perverted foot lust? Yes, but not by enough."

Added DiffLines:

* MeaningfulName: The name of the park ranger is Ranger Park.
--> '''Fry:''' [[LampshadeHanging I get it!]]


* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: It was rated TV-14 for sexual situations and suggestive dialogue on FOX for a reason.


** The ending where Bigfoot walks off is a homage to the Patterson-Gimlin film, which also appears during the film shown to the campers at the beginning.

Added DiffLines:

* AlwaysABiggerFish: This looks to be invoked when Bigfoot enters the fray at the climax, but it's the other way around. For all the size and strength he's supposed to have, ''Futurama'' is full of aliens that are way tougher and scarier than Bigfoot.
-->'''Ndnd''': Aww, look at his adorable little feet!


Added DiffLines:

* BigDamnHeroes: DoubleSubverted; right as the Omicronians have lost patience and are about to take Fry's lower horn, Bigfoot smashes his way onto the scene in what looks to be a badass rescue... but they're all bigger and tougher than him and consider him a cute critter. Bigfoot then makes a show of yelling and throwing leaves around, as he is a dumb animal. In the end his appearance does save Fry, but instead by getting Lrrr to realize something about himself.


Added DiffLines:

* NoSell: The ranger tries to tranquilize the Omicronians when they stand between him and Bigfoot, but the dart bounces harmlessly off of Lrrr's skin.
