NotesI had some trouble with the Debate and break into three. I was all ready for the AA Program to be the start of Act II, but he gets thrown out after ten minutes of film, and then comes back. So I decided that first try of his would be the debate, with the question of his staying power hovering about. Once his parents reject him and the police are coming to his workplace, he has no choice but to get back into the program. I felt that was when Act II starts... when he makes the full commitment.
