Later pigman has a heart attack and Johnand Lorraine help him.
That's good. But, while he's in thehospital they have, like, a rave at pigman's house.
That's bad. Because all the pig statuesget busted during the party. And when pigman comes home and finds out hiscollection was trashed, he banishes John and Lorraine from his house.
