“Just let him come” { needs to be on the same line as the end bracket or on the very next line. You can’t skip a whole line between the ending bracket and the next option.

It needs to look like this:

} "Just let him come" {

or this:

}
"Just let him come" {

I just saw this thread and I know you fixed your original issue, but I thought you might want to know that when you are having a phone conversation, and one of your characters isn’t actually seen, just heard (like Justin), you can make the Narrator bubble have their name on it! All you have to do is:

       NARRATOR (JUSTIN)
   That's fine, we can just hang out.

This means you can also do:

       NARRATOR (JAMIYAH)
  *Calls Justin*
