Matthew 6:19-21

19"Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.

20But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.

21For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

The Fifth House on the Left, Part 2

“The Fifth House on the Left, Part 2” is episode #279 of the Adventures in Odyssey audio series. It was written and directed by Paul McCusker, and originally aired on August 27, 1994.


In Hollywood, Bernard and Eugene meet the Smith-Hammer family. Bernard tells a little girl about Jesus, and Eugene is cast to star in a movie.


After the earthquake (and rescuing a director from a sound-stage), Kelsey Smith-Hammer and Eugene find themselves stranded. Kelsey just pouts, but Eugene tries to help fireman, ambulance workers, and anyone else who's cleaning up after the earthquake.

Back at the Smith-Hammer's house, Bernard assists Tammi who was cut by falling glass. Tammi's father isn't happy about Bernard's stories of Jesus, but he backs off when he sees how they help Tammi.

Eugene and Kelsey finally make it back to Kelsey's house. Kelsey seems to have learned her lesson about being selfish. Later, the Smith-Hammer family gathers around the truck as Bernard and Eugene prepare to head back to Odyssey. They all give heartfelt goodbyes. It's been quite a California adventure! And now, back to Odyssey..where few things ever change.

This plot section is too short and should be expanded. »

Bernard Walton: Hubert? Eugene!

Kelsey Smith-Hammer: Caring in Hollywood is too hard and it costs too much! Nobody can afford it!

Kelsey Smith-Hammer: May I kiss you good-bye, Eugene?

Foster Smith-Hammer: Anytime you're in town, guys, don't hesitate to, uh, call our answering machine.

Eugene Meltsner: Ah, yes, Odyssey. Where, fortunately, few things ever change.
Bernard Walton: Thank Heaven.
Eugene Meltsner: Then drive on, "Bernie!"
Bernard Walton: Why, in a flash, "Hubert!"

Foster Smith-Hammer: Bernie, are you talking to her about Jesus again?
Bernard Walton: Well, I uh... I, uh, uh... I...
Foster Smith-Hammer: I wanna tell you something. I'm a patient man. I pride myself on my tolerance—
Bernard Walton: Look, Foster, unless you have some other profound words of comfort to give her, then yes, I've been talking to her about Jesus. And I'm gonna keep talking to her about Jesus. Are you gonna ask me to leave again or can I finish bandaging her feet?
