For the car one, the mother-in-law rides in an isolated bubble that's ~15 feet behind the family. The site-gag is the interior of the car is huge and they list the multiple rows of seat occupants ("...the wife, the kids, the pets...") as they pan back, finishing with a long sweep way behind the car showing the barely-attached final compartment and adding "...and the mother-in-law".
