"Poltergeist, I'm telling you! That's what's in here Chuck. I don't wanna go in there!!!", Eugene protests. "Come on, hold the light for me", says Chuck. "Ooowh, what's that smell?", asks Eugene.

"Kneuter joint seals can be found at Karl's Hardware down in Kensington", says Chuck, "Plus I know I saw some flambator clevises hanging on the wall of my old barn. We need to go look." Eugene replies, "Oh no Chuck not the OLD BARN! That place is even more creepy and dangerous than this one!"

"Just a minute!" said Eugene. Remembering reading a bit on the Internet (Eugene did know how to read, to the surprise of Chuck and Yancy), "Where is the second clevis and the seal for the joint?" he asked.

Yancy was now thinking Eugene was pretty smart.

"I guess we are short a couple of pieces," he said.

Intrigued, Becky whispers to Velma: “Velma? Flambator assembly??? Flambator clevis??? Johnson rod???Kneuter modulator??? Do you know what they are talking about?”
—Velma, whispering back: “No! Do you?”
—Becky, still whispering: “No! Do you think they are making all these names up?”
—Velma, thinking: “Maybe? … Probably? … Let’s go Google it.”

"Heck Eugene. All you gotta do is attach the one-way johnson rod to the flambator clevis, then hook up the kneuter modulator in series with those two, and suddenly your still will put out twice as much hooch as anyone elses! Everyone knows THAT!", exclaims Yancy.

"Get a life!" exclaims Chuck. "It's old, rusty and probably leaks."
"We could try, but I think it is a long shot."

"What's a Flambator?" asks Eugene. He didn't know much about the history of stills.

"Flambator assembly, I think", says Yancy, "Must be a hundred years old. We may be able to attach it to the johnson rod and make it work! Could really increase the still's output if it works!"

Eugene climbed down the ladder into the hole.

"Look what's down here, Chuck! Come see, it's a..."
"Do you think we can use it?" hollered Chuck into the hole.
"What is it?"

“Do you think I’m nuts?!” Chuck shouts, “You know I hate deep, dark, dangerous places!”
—Yancy, disgusted: “Get down here, you panzy!”
—Chuck, whining: “But Yancy…!”
—Eugene, excited: “Yancy, what did you find? Can I come down & see?!”

“Will you look in the tool box & hand me the monkey wrench?” Yancy asks Eugene
—Eugene looks in the tool box: “Yancy? None of them looks like a monkey to me … so which one is it?”
—Yancy, shocked by Eugene’s confusion, heads toward the tool box … when suddenly the ground drops out from under his feet & he falls into a deep hole

Voles, digging tunnels and eating the crops on Chuck's Farm. He'd better stop fooling around with that still and get out there and deal with the pests.

“Take this lemonade out to the guys.” Becky hands Eugene a thermos of water
—“But Becky, they won’t want lemonade!” Eugene complains
—Becky: “Ok, take the jug of water.”
—Grumbling, Eugene takes the water jug out to the guys
—Velma, smirking: “Nice save, Becky!”

Quickly, Becky reaches into the laundry hamper, grabbing the last 4 jugs of Chuck’s ‘White Lightening’ from where she had hidden them
—Becky, quietly handing 2 jugs to Velma: “We need a better place to hide these. Do you have any good ideas?”

“NO!!!” Yancy suddenly screams, jumps up & dashes into the barn
—Eugene, confused: “What got into him??”
—Chuck, suspicious: “I think we better go find out.”
—Yancy, from inside the barn: “NO!!! NOT THE STILL!!”

Little lambs running around in circles, and hopping up and down. The "big bang" has really startled them too!

KER-BAM!!! PSSSHHHH! (& a bunch of other loud noises)
—Becky (in the kitchen), stops: “Velma, did you hear that?”
—Velma: “Yea. But what was it?”
—Becky: “I don’t know. But it sounded like it came from the barn.”
—Velma: “I’ve got a bad feeling about this, but let’s go see what it is.”

“First we need to build the still.” Chuck states
—Becky: “Right! … We’ll go figure out the recipe.”
—Velma, mutters to Becky: “Considering how long it will take them to build the still & make the hooch…we better make a stop at the local wine store.”
—Becky, mutters back to Velma: “Either that or fake the hooch filled Easter egg recipe … at the rate they are going, we’ll probably never need to actually make the eggs!”
