* JerkassHasAPoint: While Arianna has her point about Willow stealing her daughter's attention away, Willow herself [[LampShading points out]] that Arianna wouldn't have missed the meteor shower if she hadn't sulked off by herself.

* ADayInTheLimelight: Queen Arianna has a bigger role than usual in this episode, since it is about her relationship with both her sister Willow and her daughter Rapunzel, about her birthday and her trip with Rapunzel.

* FeudEpisode: Interestingly a two-fold one--both Arianna and Eugene end up feuding with someone they personally know who is a bit of a loose cannon (Willow for the Queen, Lance for Eugene), who also ends up making them look bad. Suffice it to say, Eugene had it easy compared to the Queen.

* RuleOfThree: In both plots, adding a third person ended up upsetting character dynamics. For Queen Arianna, throwing Willow in their mother-daughter time ignited tensions between her and her sister, with the latter showing her up in front of her daughter. For Eugene, Lance inviting the King on their camping trip caused the duo to get in a fight. This is all because Eugene didn't want to be embarrassed in front of the king.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Expy}}: The Umlaut is very much a homage to the Mogwai from ''Film/{{Gremlins}}''.
* FeetFirstIntroduction: Drawing attention to the fact that she's barefoot (and thus out of place), the first we see of Willow is her tapping her foot in the palace halls.


Added DiffLines:

* HandyFeet: Willow and Rapunzel somehow use their bare feet to convey a conversation with gestures you would normally see on hands, indicating how they've adapted to shoeless life.

Added DiffLines:

* BreatherEpisode: While it has a rather dark moment, the next episode takes a rather strange turn.


On Queen Arianna's birthday, her sister Willow drops by for a surprise visit and tags along on their mother-daughter excursion, but things don't go as expected...

to:

->I love Willow. She's fun, she's silly, she's really outgoing. But she can also be ''loud'', inconsiderate and a little... obnoxious.
-->--'''Arianna'''

* BirthdayEpisode: Arianna's birthday is in this episode--notably the first one which she can share with her daughter Rapunzel--and her sister Willow shows up for the occasion.



* HatesBeingAlone: It's rather evident Fredric wasn't going to be happy being alone for the night. Lance felt a little bad and let him tag along, much to Eugene's dismay, because it added the extra burden of keeping ''Lance'' under control for his future in-law.
* KillerRabbit: The Uumlaut may appear harmless, but if you take away the rattle, it will go feral, multiply by spitting out hair balls, and ZergRush an entire place.

* SchmuckBait: The Uumlaut MUST have its rattle at all times. Breaking that one little rule will unleash havoc.
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: For someone as big and tough as Lance, he let out a high-pitched scream when the Uumlauts began to terrorize the campsite.
