Role-playing occurs between Bill and Jhana under maddie's watchful eye. Jhana is attending life skills workshops, getting there by taking the bus, and she has a crush on one of the young men there. Bill wants to prepare her for the eventuality of a date (and Maddie is terrified of what might happen on a date) so devises and enacts role playing situations with Jhana so she is not unprepared.
