Hold on there a minute!
The whole black hole section missing!
The end of Seq.08 Sc.109 is Gramps "If'n that bug don't get here soon..." and then his dialogue should continue "...they'll put that little girl down the Black Hole again" (or words to that effect) which is a VO the cross-dissolve into the establishing shot of Medusa, Snoops and Penny arriving at the Black Hole.
'Ellie Mae and gang to Rescue' comes AFTER all the Black-Hole action and the 1st scene (marked here as 08.1 Sc.23) comes after the diamond is found and the characters leave the rock.
However, I do see that the start of this Seq. is noted as cross-dissolve from Sc.112 of Seq.011, so I presume there must be a numerical jump and Seq. 011 comes inbetween 08 and 08.1.?

You are very right, David! Seq. 011comes between 008 and 08.1! It is up next in the pile of papers - I post them in the order that they have been clamped together...

So the sequences have been mixed round the final version after the drafts were written.

I always like that scene of the mole underground saying 'Where'd everybody go?!' and one of the critters stumps his head to the ground.
