Title text: This scavenger hunt is getting boring. Let's go work on the treehouse!
Cueball and Megan fall in love, get married, and grow old together. And then we learn at the end that it's just another thing crossed off the list of what is presumably the longest-duration scavenger hunt of all-time, considering Cueball grew quite old before ever completing that step on the list.
The treehouse reference in the title text is another example of a common childhood activity. Naturally, the intended mental image is a bunch of old men building a treehouse and living and playing in it like six year olds.
