When Axl and Sue fight about who has to visit Aunt Edie and Aunt Ginny, Mike orders them both to go. It's an agonizing visit, though Sue's curiosity is piqued when Aunt Edie mentions she buried a time capsule many years ago. She filled it with all sorts of cool stuff, but never dug it up.
Sue wants to find that time capsule, but Axl's not into the excavation scene. He changes his tune after he thinks Aunt Edie has died on the couch. She's fine. Just needs a refill of scotch. The next night, Axl and Sue drive all over Orson attempting to find the time capsule. They dig up a yard that may or may not be at the right house. Then Aunt Edie remembers she never actually buried a time capsule. It was just something she read in a Nancy Drew book.
Aunt Edie takes a hose to the furious homeowner whose yard they destroyed so Axl and Sue can make a getaway. The kids are thoroughly impressed. As it turns out, Aunt Edie has had many adventures in her life. She shares a few stories with Axl and Sue, who make for a captivated audience. Guess spending some time with the aunts isn't all bad.
