  • None of this makes sense anymore...
  • Truman remembers two very sad times that he spent on the beach or in the water. When he was a young boy he went sailing with his father and the weather got out of hand, causing Truman to lose his father. When Truman was a teenager, he met a girl, Sylvia, who tried to tell him about the reality of his life. 
  • Falling Action
  • Because Sylvia was supposedly taken away to "Fiji", Truman's most wanted destination is Fiji. But because he lives in a world where, he literally can not leave, so everyone there has to try to stop him with many "incidents". 
  • Resolution
  • Truman! Please stay! I know your whole life.
  • EXIT
  • Truman finally puts enough of the pieces together and decides to leave, and a giant vexation enters the town. Everyone there travels around, searching for Truman Burbank, the man for which all of their jobs depend on.  
  • Once Christof, the director, uses all of the resources he can think of to find Truman, it is discovered that he is sailing away on the water. Very nearly drowning Truman, he puts extreme weather mode over the water to make Truman to scared and hopefully make him turn back.  People of the world suddenly realize what an awful thing it is they have done to Truman. 
  • As the most heated part of the show for the people who have spent nearly their whole lives watching Truman, Christof begs Truman to stay, telling him how he has practically raised him. In the end, a triumphant cheer overcomes the viewers after Truman uses his famous line and leaves the only world he's ever known. 
  • In case I don't see ya, good afternoon, good evening, and good night!
