As they spend time with him,they learn he has a deep, dark secret and find out what it is.
Later pigman has a heart attack and Johnand Lorraine help him.
Thats good. But, while hes in thehospital they have, like, a rave at pigmans house.

Pretty soon pigman dies, and his deathhas a profound effect on John and Lorraine.
