In the act() function, of course :)

I added social code docs to the end of the socials.doc file I send to 
peple who want to learn how to write socials.  Here's the addition (feel 
free to include this in standard circle distribution):

function         player     victim     example
--------         ------     ------     -------
name              $n         $N        $n poke $N in the ribs.
                                       You poke Jabber in the ribs.(you see)
                                       $n pokes $N in the ribs.

                                       Samedi checks his wallet.

                                       You lick Jabber, and she licks you back.
                                       $n thinks $e's cool.
                                       Samedi thinks he's cool.
