    "Tyranny, Thy Name is Grady" finds Lamont nursing a bandaged arm from falling off the truck, while Esther is looking to use Fred's house for her latest bible meeting. Naturally, Grady is just as adamant as Fred in his refusal to allow it. Lamont wants to throw a party with Rollo that night, and that too is rendered off limits. Grady is so serious about protecting Fred's home that he even brandishes a rifle and keeps the door locked. Lamont believes that he can find another way in, only to get the rifle in his face. Another night of frustration ensues with Grady foiling Lamont by inviting Esther's church ladies over. Surely if Fred were aware of what Grady was up to, he'd have shot him himself!
