He tries to ask a cowboy on the stagecoach if he's going to Green River, but realizes too late that the cowboy was a dog. He jumps off and gets tangled in a net hanging off of the stagecoach, where he is yanked along the road like a rag doll. His journey goes on like this until he crashes in a pile of bones at the border between the Badlands and Worselands. Realizing he was left behind, he states that he is "lost, all alone Dithering, and Scuttlebutt meet up again after going through the booby traps] Tiger: Can we go home now?
Dithering, Tiger, and Scuttlebutt running from spinning booby traps and then they sliding on a slide and they fall into a Native American net] Tiger: Uh, where are we?
Hey, now, those are sharp! You talk with the English tongue. And you have a cat with you. I'm thinking of converting. If only we had some sort of a peace offering. Mama's matzo ball soup. We have heard legend of this matzo ball soup. Dithering, and Scuttlebutt fall on the ground] Tiger: Oy, that must be some soup! I am Wulisso, sakima of this clan. There haven't been Indians in New York for years. You speak of the Lenape. Lenape is what the Delaware Indians called themselves. I feel so ashamed!
And we watched as the Europeans mistreated the Lenape. Our ancestors did not wait for the European mice to do the same to them. Instead the found refuge here in the ground, safe, hidden from the world. And that is how we have stayed!
They're gonna scalp us?! Dithering and Tiger shout in shock] Fievel: Until then, you will need someone to show you around the cavern. This is my daughter, Cholena. She will serve as your guide. Terrif-- [Fievel angrily stares at him] If you got nothing better to do.

It will be my pleasure. She has volunteered to be your guide. Then again, that bit about scalpin' don't sound so bad. He's calling upon the spirits of the Earth to embrace you. When do we start?
Well, I like those.
Ooh, and this is mine too. What are all the drawings on his stick? Why is he pouring--? You are like a chirping cricket. It is good to ask. That is how we learn. So, it's okay to be a cricket? In fact, from now on, I will call you Zelozelos.
Chulu-Chulus] In our language, that means "Cricket. What are you gonna call me? I will call you It is our word for "Turkey. And what are you going to do about it?! Scene switches to Tankho sobbing] Dr. What could possibly possess you to do such a thing?
Nah, you got it all wrong. Uh, Everyone was off dancing, so I thought I'd tidy up a bit. This is a serious matter. We open our home to you, but how do you respond? With thievery, and deceit! Chief, you gotta believe me. We had nothing to do with this. The guy's a rat, you know.
What's the matter, Zelozelos? Oh, I just was thinking. We're no better than Scuttlebutt. We found this map, and it told us about your That's why we came; to grab it for ourselves You did not know we were here. You are not thieves. Come with me, Zelozelos. Scene switches to her showing Fievel their treasure. But, it's just a string of beads. It is the history of our tribe told in symbols. W-We risked our lives for that?
Zelozelos, treasures comes in many forms. For us, it is our heritage. The wampum reminds us of our life with the Lenape, of our journey here and being separated from everything we once knew. The settlers just stomped in and took over. If that's "The American Dream," I want nothing to do with it! Do not be hasty, Zelozelos. You're gonna get Cholena killed! Cholena, Why don't you come back with us? You've shown us all of your world.
We could show you ours. Oh-- [topples over] Tankho: May the spirits protect you during your journey, Daughter. Make no contact with the upper-worlders. You task is to see if they have changed their deceitful ways.
However unlikely that may be. As your wish, Father. She'll have a great time. Besides, what could happen? Today, I am pleased to announce that my associates and I now control all cheese manufacturing in the tri-state area.
This is great news. Course, all of you will have to triple your output. What's in it for us?! Your jobs, that's what. We work too many hours as it is! We're workin' ourselves to the bone, while you're all gettin' fat! How 'bout cutting us in?!
Actually, we're cutting you OUT! This is like Russia all over again! You feeling homesick old mouse? There's a Mousekewitz again, stirring up trouble. They're all ungrateful louts, and it's just the beginning. Dissent is like a disease. So we must cure them of it, before the infection spreads. Just a sign to let us know you're listening. Oh, it's about time you got home.
I want to hear everything, but first, oh, you wouldn't believe what happened at the factory. So, as I was say Papa, this is Cholena. It is an honor to meet the father of my friend, Fievel. She's from this really old tribe that lives in a big cave right under New York City. This is your idea of a sign?
First you let Mousekewitz tell you what to do. Now his son is giving that little princess a guided tour! We have to find her fast! What about the rest of them? A tribe of savages under our feet? What if they invade us? Ah, they wouldn't stand a chance against my boys. And what makes you so sure? That does make a difference. You're all missing a point. These Indians are the answer to our problems with the workers.
The best way to keep those malingerers in line is to provide them and us with a common enemy. We set ourselves up as the workers' champions and protectors. And turn them against the Indians.
