The gang goes up to the Cabots' mountain retreat, where they encounter a strange hooded figure, sobbing and howling.

When the gang goes to inspect an old tunnel the next day, they discover gold, and themselves fall prey to gold fever -- until the undead prospector returns to scare them away.

Frustrated by both sexes' lack of understanding of what women's liberation really means, Valerie takes the boys aside and explains that women's lib isn't about taking over everything, it's about working side by side and helping each other. To illustrate this, Valerie asks them to imagine Alan M. being married to Josie, and refusing to let her work to help pay the bills. Eventually he'd work himself into an early grave.
