Rousso's sister, Alice, is coming for a visit. This means Rousso and Graziella must drag the ugly statue Alice gave them out of the garage and display it in their home. They explain to the children that they are doing this because they don't want to hurt Alice's feelings, and that they must pretend to like the statue even if it's ugly and frightens Bo. The children have trouble understanding why the grown-ups must lie. Later on, Bo decides to attack the statue. Horace tries to stop him, but accidentally knocks the statue over in the process. The children glue the statue together again as best they can, but decide to tell Rousso and Graziella the truth when they return. Their honesty inspires Graziella and Rousso to tell Alice no lies. Instead they let Alice know that they appreciated her gift, even though they would have never chosen this statue themselves.
