  • Bears Are Bad News: Heather's animal.
  • Chainsaw Good: Duncan chooses a chainsaw to capture a racoon.
  • Combining Mecha: A group of Raccoons.
    • Living Weapon: It shoots racoons at Duncan, one of which knocks him of a cliff (the same one he brings back as his animal.

  • Impossible Task: Heather has to catch a bear, something that she complains about throughout the episode.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Before the challenge, Chris gave everyone a chance to pick a tool from the shed to catch their animal. While Izzy chose a tranquilizer gun, Gwen went for the duck bait, while Leshawna picked a bucket.
  • Insistent Terminology: Owen, concerning his weight.
    Gwen: (to Izzy) Wasn't that a 300 pound bag of joy talking to you just now?

    Duncan: (to Heather) I can help bag a bear (pulls out fake deer antlers), dear.

  • Killer Rabbit: Owen's Chipmunk.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: After wrecking Gwen's reward, Owen is attacked by all of the animals in the wooden cage the other contestants captured.

  • Shot in the Ass: Heather winds up getting shot in the butt by Izzy's tranquilizer gun. The ensuing paralysis guarantees she loses the challenge.

  • Worthy Opponent: Heather sees Duncan as this after he offers to help her finish the challenge.
