@YOU spot 0.711 355 in zone 2 AND YOU faces right AND YOU starts sleep_lay_uncomfortable_loop

I tried that, it says its an invalid directing command, and MC is in zone 2, you’re right :slight_smile:

INT. GIRLY ROOM - DAY

&cut to zone 2

Try this, hope it works. If it doesn’t then try with also adding “AND YOU faces left/right” :blush: Good Luck!
