Vivian leaves to go shopping while Edgar is trying to tend his flower garden and cope with obnoxious house painter Billy Franey. While rummaging through the attic, Kennedy stumbles on a long-hidden stash of gold coins, which Franey informs him are now illegal to own. Edgar is bullied into agreeing to share them with Franey in order to buy his silence but must bury them in order to legally take possession of what would be buried treasure, not illegally hoarded coins. After burying them in his flower garden, he finds that unneighborly neighbor Mr. Jones has had his property resurveyed and a fence erected... with Edgar's gold on the wrong side. Franey comes up with a hairbrained plan to recover the treasure from the fractious Jones... which includes tunneling and explosives. Written by
Did You Know?
Say, are you sure you're hiding this dirt where Jones can't see it?
Listen, pal, I've been hidin' dirt all my life, and where I'm hidin' it even a worm couldn't see it. Could you?
