At one point, in a great monologue, Lou recounts how he lost his virginity at 12 years old to Monty's girlfriend while on an inflatable horse in a swimming pool. The conversation turns to Tim's late night whereabouts: Does he have a girl? What's he doing hanging around the park until late at night? Is he really innocent? It is finally revealed that Lou is a small time dealer and Tim is trying to take over Lou's connections. Though starting off with Lou leading his younger brother through a crash course in surivival, by the end of the play, Tim has inadvertently taken control of the situation.
