Teresa: HAF? Alan: HAM?
Did Teresa disobey Alan? A boss? The law? Another authority figure?
Did Teresa and Alan have to obey the same authority? Are they friends? Family? Coworkers?
Was Alan's belief religious? A opinion? A hypothesis about something?

So Teresa and Alan are siblings? Is the authority figure their parents?
Was Teresa punished for her disobedience? By being grounded? Having certain privileges removed?
Was Alan's belief in Santa? The Easter Bunny? The Tooth Fairy? Monsters under the bed? An imaginary friend?

Did Teresa commit some relevant act of disobedience? Did it relate to a visit from the Easter bunny, perhaps involving some element of staying up late, sneaking into Alan's room, tampering with Easter eggs etc.?

Did Teresa believe in the easter bunny? Did Alan doubt its existence? Did he think Teresa doubted it? Did he think her disobedience was related to the easter bunny? Is anything bunny-related seen, heard or said during the puzzle? Is Alan also relevantly disobedient? Teresa's motive for the disobedience relevant?

Does Teresa go out with this Zack guy? Does she wait for him in her room? Does he relevantly signal her in some way? Are either Teresa or Zack directly involved with the rabbit?
