I have one small thing to say with regard to this debate, which is really about
a number of different things:

Re. Donna's behavior as depicted in the jail scene --> I think it's really
strange that so many people are going right along with *James'* interpretation
of the scenario--which is that she "wanted to *do* it with him right there."
Why are you taking *his* word for it?  James is a nice guy and all that, but
he seems pretty insecure and depressed and confused to me, so his interpreta-
tion of Donna's behavior may be different from ours.  If *I* were Donna, and
*my* brand-new boyfriend/lover were locked up, I, too, might take advantage
of a few seconds' eye and lip contact with him to let him know just how much
I was missing him--*physically*.  It's at least possible to view Donna's
behavior in this light.  It's at least possible to wonder if James doesn't
know a good thing when it's starin' him right in the face.  Doesn't he *want*
to be lusted after by Donna, for goodness sake?!  :-)
