"Your going to these Meramac caverns arn't you ?"

"Yep, the advertising got to me in the end"

"Still, they must be quite impressive, this area is known as the 'cave state'"

"Is that because of natural formations or the political sophistication of the locals?"

"I'll ignore that. It's said that Jesse James hid out in this cave system, and it was also used as a rest stop on the underground railroad"

"Excellent, can we get a ride?"

"Listen, ignorant, it refers to the smuggling of black slaves out of the south"

"I knew that !"
Later on the tour of the caves

Guide : " They used to hold regular balls in here around the turn of the century"

"I'm all for the regular holding of balls"

"Will you behave.."

Guide : "Nowdays it is sometime used for marriages and other events and receptions."
and music recitals"

"I guess you could fit a couple of thousand in here for a concert"

"If you make any joke about playing your organ in a vast cave I will be very annoyed"
