Recap / Craig Of The Creek S 1 E 32 Dinner At The Creek

Go To


  • Ain't Too Proud to Beg: The episode starts with Craig begging on his knees for his mom not to leave Bernard in charge.
  • I Do Not Like Green Eggs and Ham: Craig refuses to eat Bernard's risotto. When he comes back to find that Bernard burned it, he tries it out of pity. He finds that it's not really that bad, and adds grated cheese to make it more palatable.
  • Killer Rabbit: The squirrels that attack J.P. when he tires to get their stash of nuts. Also Mortimer, if you try to take his bird seed.
  • Lethal Chef:
    • It's Bernard and Alexis' first time cooking, so their risotto doesn't quite work out. Downplayed in that it doesn't taste that bad, it's just a little burnt.
    • Craig's attempt at living off what he finds at the creek doesn't work out well either. All he manages to make is dirty water with wild onions in it.
  • Not So Different: Craig doubts his responsibility when his first attempt at cooking goes wrong. When he comes home, he sees that Bernard is having the same problems and feeling the same way.
  • Picky Eater: Craig doesn't want Bernard to make dinner on Friday night because Friday is traditionally pizza night. He'd rather make food himself at the creek than try Bernard's risotto.
  • Picture-Perfect Presentation: Bernard looks at the picture of the finished risotto on his tablet; when he puts the tablet down, it shows his risotto, all burnt and goopy.

  • Plot Allergy: J.P. turns out to be allergic to crabapples, so Craig can't use them in his soup.
  • Reality Ensues: Craig finds out the hard way living off the land is not as easy as it looks. Even though the things they find (acorns, wild onions, and crabapples) are technically edible, that doesn't make them remotely palatable, easy to prepare, or sanitary.
  • Squirrels in My Pants: A bunch of squirrels crawl into J.P.'s shirt and pants as they attack him for trying to take their acorn stash.
  • Start My Own: Not wanting to eat Bernard's risotto, Craig resolves to make his own dinner from what he can find at the creek.
  • Watch Out for That Tree!: Kelsey tries to jump to the top of a tree to get some crabapples, as well as retrieve all the stuff they threw at it in an attempt to knock down the apples. She falls short and slams into the trunk instead, which at least knocks down all their stuff and some of the crabapples.

How well does it match the trope?
