Plotting the Subplot

The screenplay I'm working on is worrying me. I've way too many subplots and the main plot already seems a little loose, while at the same time too long. I need to pick a climax that fulfills the main premise, for one.

Then I have to narrow down the five subplots I've got going. I have no idea which ones I need to let go right now. Can't dedicate myself to all of them. However, they all complete the story in their own little ways. Which are deceitfully unnecessary?

Vomit draft to the rescue! Tomorrow I will definitely nail down that climax and what this story will be culminating to and then I will sprinkle the subplots throughout the story in a way that will make sense. Or at least that's my intention.

I don't know...
