Jeff doesn't drink much, but he still becomes the face of the show's drunk-driving subplot. And by the end, the stop sign debacle is left a little vague -- we only see the aftermath, and nobody, Clay included, knows exactly how Jeff's accident happened. Did you and Brian talk about a definitive story for what happened that night?
Larracuente: Brian, Dylan, and I did speak about that. This show raises a lot of important issues, so we felt like if Jeff really was drinking it would have kind of condoned drinking and driving. The message we were trying to get across to the audience was, It doesn't have to be your fault; it can be someone else's fault [Editor's note: Recall that a questionably sober Sheri knocks the stop sign over]. But Jeff was not drunk when he drove, we didn't want to portray Jeff as a drunk driver, and you should never take the risk of drinking and driving.
