Moose decides to avoid Piper. She gave Scout the baseball, and Scout seems pretty over the whole idea.
Scout also tells Moose that Piper has a crush on him—he tries to get Moose to admit that he likes her back, but Moose denies it. Of course.
Piper corners Moose after school with a brand-new scheme.
She's fixated on the idea of 105 and wants his help to arrange a meeting with Natalie and the con—if the convict tries anything bad, they can catch him in the act.
The more she talks about her wild notions, the more Moose tries to block her out.
And now the truth comes out: She's already tried to talk to 105 and he's ignored her. And here's the scoop on why he was wandering around outside the prison walls: He only has a year left on Alcatraz, so they give him some freedom, figuring he won't try to break out when he's so close to being released.
Moose stops to consider if she's telling the truth, but she sounds like she's being honest.
Piper starts being more annoying, making very inappropriate comments about 105 and Natalie.
Moose tells her that he has to keep his sister safe until the tryouts for the Marinoff School in a month. He asks why Piper cares about this so much.
Duh—Piper wants to meet Al Capone. And she thinks that 105 might be a good start.
