Her specialized knowledge of how to perform an emergency landing literally saves his life. Then again, she may be playing with Joel by telling him they are baneberries. If they are baneberries, he appears to have eaten a fair number of them, which could lead to some awfully uncomfortable symptoms, as detailed above.
Maggie is also able to make a fire, shoot a squirrel, skin it, and roast it on a spit. When Maggie treks off into the woods, she admonishes him not to smother the fire this time. Not only is it unlikely that Joel could start a fire on his own; he would have trouble keeping it burning without help.
In other words, Joel would have been unable to do it so easily. When they hear wolves, Joel immediately worries about being eaten. Maggie, by contrast, mentions that humans have never been attacked by wolves in this area.
Joel counters with what he has learned: Rather than learning survival skills from Maggie, Joel chooses to learn Spanish by listening to a boombox. Joel and Maggie have different opinions about the merits of eating blubber. It would be like eating Crisco, solid butter, a huge hunk of shmalts.

Joel finally calls a halt to the argument and demands that the two of them sit down so that they can discuss their differences.
As Maurice returns to his cabin in the evening, he is surprised to find Barbara prearing to leave. She tells him that she has returned his Browning, since she heard Maurice's accountant on the answering machine talking about tax loopholes for Maurice's return.
Maurice is amused by the whole circumstance and then his amusement turns to fear when he realizes that Barbara is seriously leaving him. She knows she can never respect him after he broke the law.
