Interesting, because in "Only a Poor Old Man" (OS 386), panel 4.7,
Scrooge says: "Oh, woe is me! I'll be a poor old man!" 

Are there other Barks stories in which Scrooge refers to himself as a
poor old man/duck?

> What about the Vitamin Zee quiz?

See my quote below. I think that one was a bit too difficult, because this
Barks script-only story may not be widely available at the moment.
(That isn't only an explanation, it's a hint as well.) :-)

> And my Quiz & Treasure Hunt #1? Any idea?

Which ones do you mean? Can you quote them again? 

On March 22, 2001, you wrote: "Quote quiz # 3: Remember "file 90L-6F" ?"
I can't remember this one being answered. It's "North of the Yukon"
(US 59), panel 6.3.

> Here's another (tough) one:
> "Don't worry! *We* ' ll get you out!"

Barks or Rosa?

Best wishes,
