Caleb brings the case against his friend, Ryan. Caleb is ready to get rid of his Lego collection, but Ryan thinks he should keep it in storage. Ryan says that even though Caleb thinks he’s ready to let it go, he will later regret parting with these sets. Who’s right? Who’s wrong? With Expert Witness Seth Mnookin!
