This episode shows Pete at his greediest and most selfish!
When everyone found gold in their backyard, they rejoiced! But then, Pete, who had financial problems, wanted the gold for himself the most. Pete didn't want anyone to come with him except Goofy, and that was a bad decision on his part, because there were times when he needed his family most. Pete and Goofy had a fantastic voyage in the tunnels and got the gold, and so Pete had the gold fever. Follow the saying: "A fool and his money will soon part". What will you get? You'll figure out yourself.
Trust me, the ending showed that their voyage wasn't all for nothing. Everyone gains something...or not.
