Continuing with 'E'

Everyone was now depressed. If there was any treasure, it hadn't been found in a long time.

"How about going fishin' Yancy?" asked Chuck. "It's still early and the fishin' hole is just up the path."

Continue with 'H'

(oops, sorry I skipped "E")

"Getting rich, hopefully. There is buried treasure in here Norman!", says Eugene.

"Gosh Eugene, I thought so too, and have been down here for years, digging and looking... So far, nothing!", says Norman.

"Golly, maybe we ought to pack it up and head back to the farm. I think we are better farmers than we are treasure hunters! says Chuck.

"Great! Another big fat waste of time!", says Yancy in disgust.

Poor old Klancy just sits there and wags his tail.

“You know, from 'Neil, Nick, Nate, Noah, and Norman', the guys I used to play marbles with!", says Eugene. "He's had that zebra coat forever."

"Don't think of it that way," said Chuck.
"It's an expression, like 'Eureka' or 'I've got it'."

"I don't know who Norman is either," says Yancy.

“ZEBRA!!” Velma yells
—Yancy: “No!! Yellow stars, not zebra striped stars!”
—Velma: “NO!!! Hide, there’s a zebra in the tunnel!”
—Chuck: “Zebras don’t live in tunnels!”
—Yancy: “Zebras live in Africa!”
—Becky: “Take cover! Here he comes!!”

Velma just sat back and smiled.
"Eugene, just because you are a practice patient, doesn't make you a dentist!"

"No, but I have experience!" blubbered Eugene.
"We've all sat in the dentist chair!" said Becky.

“Shucks, Becky, I can’t do that.” Eugene blushes
—Becky: “Why?”

—Becky: “Not a dentist? Why?”
—Eugene: “I’m not certified.”
—Becky: “Not certified? Why not?”
—Eugene: “Didn’t graduate.”

—Eugene: “A practice patient.”
—Becky: “A practice patient??? What’s a practice patient?”

“Quit joshin’, Chuck!” Eugene snickers, “It was dental school.”
—Everyone freezes, Becky quietly asks: “Dental School!!”

"Probably haven't seen them since school."

"Those didn't come along until the gas crisis in the early 70s," said Eugene.

Chuck: “I thought we came, so Klancy Dog could sniff out the cave’s treasure & Eugene could help us dig it up.”
—Zack, Eugene’s cousin (aka: the Keebler Elf look-alike): “Eugene! Did you forget? Cousin Clyde & I found that treasure back in ’99.”
—Yancy: “You did?! What was it? What did you do with it?”
—Zack: “Well…We bought firewood, food & a bunch other stuff.”
—Velma: “Why?”
—Zack: “Why? Well, to be prepared for Y2K, of course.”

"What do you mean, Eugene? This was all your idea in the first place!", says Chuck, continuing, "I'm the one that should be going 'aaargh' for putting up with all this foolishness!"

Eugene had not seen his cousin in a long time.

Many times, she has done it before, Velma takes up the lead and heads down the tunnel. Everyone else fell in behind her, including Klancy.
