Lier X. Agerate told Ness to "Go into my hole". This line has been referenced in later episodes of the series, such as Episode 39 - King, It's Really You! when they fell into the hole that led to the Lost Underworld.
The story takes place at the hills of Onett. In a time prior to the time of the episode (later shown in Episode 36), Lier asked Ness to come to his cabin when he would be alone. As Ness arrived, he reassured Mr. Agerate that he was alone saying that his dog, King, didn't come with him because he read through his dog's mind that he was afraid and he could also read Lier's mind at the moment. Once inside, Lier asked to "Go into his hole" which he was refering to the hole on his floor leading to a tunnel underground. That line became the first running gag of the series. While walking through the tunnel, Lier explains that he felt like an outside force made him felt like telling Ness about his discovery. Ness replies that it might have something to do with what Buzz Buzz has told him the night before about saving the universe but then tell about his demise. As they arrived at the end of the tunnel, Lier shows Ness the Mani Mani statue. Lier explains about how he came to discover the statue as Ness examines it, feeling something bad out of it. As Lier tells Ness to leave, Ness makes a disgusting discovery and then the Narrator concludes reminding the audience that there is no bathroom in the houses of Earthbound.
