Buried Treasure

Lulu: “Gopher, gopher, where is the gopher?”

Mouse: “Lulu, we need to talk to you about your digging.”
Lulu: “What? Why? Is this some kind of intervention? Because I could quit digging any time I want to. I just don’t want to.”

Mouse: “This isn’t an intervention. There’s something buried in the backyard that we want you to dig up.”
Lulu: “What is it? Is it gophers? If it’s gophers, I’m all over that like a dog on gophers.”
Mouse: “It’s not gophers.”
Lulu: “Not gophers? And it can’t be the mine shaft, because we filled that in to keep the grues out of the yard … Is it moles?”
Mouse: “No.”
Lulu: “Voles?”
Mouse: “No.”
Lulu: “Proles?”
Mouse: “What is this, Oceania?”

Mouse: “Look, it’s something Dennis buried in the yard years ago. This is a map showing where to find it.”
Chaplin: “How did a map possibly survive being in the house with Dennis without getting shredded into confetti?”
Mouse: “It was printed on a sheet of kevlar.”
Chaplin: “I repeat the question.
Mouse: “I took the map away and hid it somewhere that Dennis couldn’t find it.”
Chaplin: “Oh, all right.”

Lulu: “Hmm, sure, I can follow this map and dig this thing up for you. Just give me a few minutes.”

A few minutes later …

Lulu: “Why would there be a doghouse buried under the hill? And what’s it for?”
Mouse: “It’s for proving a point about the Cretaceous Period. Everybody inside.”
Vermin: “HISSS! Silly mouse! It’s the Cretinous Period! Try to get it right!”
Charlee: “All I wanted was some tuna.”
