I can't tell. You have copied from the actual print and I need to see the actual print in order to tell what is a dialog opening and what is a blank to fill in. I see a long dash and two hyphens.And I also see this

2. --¡______ and I don't know what that i is. Are the two hyphens meant to be the opening dialog dash?????? All I can offer here is a guess, not an answer.

See section 6.5 in the Interim Manual on dashes, especially dashes used as opening dialog marks. Consider sending a scan of the actual print. The only way to find an answer is based on what the actual print looks like, not the way it is interpreted to be copied with a keyboard.

Sorry I can't be of more help with what is in front of me here.
