* StatingTheSimpleSolution: Before Nathan attempts his last scheme, Mimsy asks him why he doesn't just tell his parents he hates summer camp and doesn't want to go. Subverted at the end of the episode when Nathan does so, then DoubleSubverted when his mom pretends not to understand him so she and his dad can go on a trip to Italy without him. Elon Musk actually ends up doing it for the sake of ResetButton and just buy Handicar.
