Plot: Red announces that the local museum in town is having some renovations done to it, and the lodge is temporarily storing its artifacts there. Dalton, however, warns Red not to mess around with the museum artifacts because they have a supernatural power to them. Mike then shows up with another artifact, a mummy. But Dalton becomes even more worried, saying that every mummy comes with a curse. But neither Red nor Mike take his warning seriously. As Red fools around with the mummy, Dalton warns him that this mummy was once an Egyptian prince whose family was killed and would return from the dead to be avenged, but Red still ignores him. Then he and Mike get an idea: they will play a trick on Dalton by having Mike dress up as the mummy itself. In the end, Red returns to the lodge and sees what he thinks is Mike dressed as the mummy. Dalton returns, too, and, seeing the mummy, worries that the curse has indeed come to life. The mummy leaves and Red tells Dalton that it was just Mike in disguise and that it was just a joke. But then Mike enters from a different room and tells Red he couldn't get the bandages on in time. Red becomes shaken as he goes to the Lodge Meeting, where the mummy shows up, wearing a lodge jacket.
