Just when Peter is about to buy those lessons, a rival suicide counselor appears and reveals J.M. is a bust as a suicide counsellor with a horrible reputation. Now J.M. is depressed and wants to jump off of Peter’s ledge. At this point, Peter asserts himself, decides nobody is jumping off a ledge today, Llife has too much to offer to end it over just a couple of bad days.
