Figgy show up on Ada's porch and fakes knowing how to play monopoly with her and Harold V. Coleman (who loves to brag about how important sounding his name is) Figgy can't decide how much he should tell about himself to his new friends. Would you let on that your grandfather halted progress by not letting the state take over the shack and actually move back in armed with a shotgun? Figgy finds out that it's OK to stand up for what you believe in -- he also finds out after a bike accident that Figgy is more important to his grandpa than his cause.
