  1. White nurses a bit of a crush on Teal, and hopes to sit next to them.
  2. Teal, meanwhile, refuses to sit across from a primary color.
  3. Orange is still mediating between Blue and White; not only should the two not face each other, but Orange insists on a seat in the shortest span between them.
  4. Blue has, meanwhile, gotten into another tiff - this time with Teal, and seating them next to each other will only cause trouble.
  5. Purple prefers the company of primary colors.
  6. Green loves sitting next to their primary colors, but they aren't greedy - they'll sit next to only one of the two.
  7. Yellow wants a good view of White, so if White isn't in the seat across from Yellow, at least they'd better be aside of it!
  8. Red wants to sit somewhere on Purple's left, but doesn't want to sit any more than two seats away from White.

  32.  
  33.  
  34. One "base case" to test - person x makes a simple statement about placement, assume true and check their other statements for truth/falsehood

  88. 2 (MS). "Oh, what a dreadful sight! Even if my view of his body was blocked from where I was sitting..."                        [2 is not sitting close to]
  89. 3 (CM). "Apparently, it wasn't dreadful enough to keep someone with a full view from thinking about napkins!"           [1 was sitting closest to the body]
  90. 4 (MW). "Seeing him like that shocked us all! Let them deal with it in their own ways!"                                                         [LIE]

  97. 5. "Mmm, I can't blame him... those Scallops looked delicious. Would have gone perfectly with my [Drink]..."            [3 is male, the drink of 5]
  98. 2. "I hate myself for saying it, but even with his body in the room I'm hungry enough to go back in there!"
  99. 6. "It's a crime scene! I'd kill for a bite of my [Meal], but we could ruin evidence!"                                                          [The meal of 6]
  100. 4. "Funny you should say that, you sitting so close to the kitchen. Kill for anything else recently?"                           [LIE - Not so close to the kitchen]
  101. 6. "It's a figure of speech! Even if it wasn't, this is a killing that's /keeping/ me from my food and [Drink]."        [The drink of 6]
  102. 1. "Oh, yes. My [Meal] certainly looked divine."
  103. 4. "Truthfully, I was a bit jealous seeing your meal on the other side of the table. It looked better than my own!"     [LIE - 4 sitting across from 1]
