Because Pat is “married” to his wife, Nikki, he refuses. Pat acknowledges that Tiffany is a “slut” and that he cannot be associated with her sexual behavior if he wants to get back with Nikki.

Pignati was becoming strong and passionate, so was the friendship between John’s friends, Denise and Norton. To receive more information about the friendship between Denise and Norton, John went to the cemetery with Norton a few days before Thanksgiving. Being they were in a graveyard, the only thing John could think of during their conversation was how putrid the dead body resting under him was. One of the topics that came up while John and Norton were conversing was when John used to play with dolls, since people now knew that, he tried to seem extra manly now. On the flip side, Norton recently got into stealing valuable items from people's houses. When John heard Norton say he started stealing lately, he left the park not caring about Norton anymore. Over time, John and Lorraine hung out with Mr. Pignati as often as they could. Unlike Mr. Pignati, one night he didn't respond to anything and he wasn't cracking jokes, so John and Lorraine knew something was wrong, it was just a matter of time till they could figure it out.
