Episode Three - "Chaos Theory" Edit

  • Chloe in the Principal's Office: "This is all kind of awesome to be taking over the principal's office at midnight. We should look for the bottles of booze I heard Principal Wells stashes around here. Wish I could find my files just to show you all the stupid shit I did before I got booted out of Blackwell. You should've seen me in action. I was such a dick. I guarantee that there's a secret file on Nathan around here. The Prescotts always get protected by the town.

  • Max looking at stuff in Chloe's room: "Spray paint? Is Chloe a tagger on the side?" "I remember William taking this shot. Chloe and me never wanted to get out of the snow."

  • Max and Frank Bowers in the Diner regarding Nathan and drugs: "What the fuck? Why are you wearin' Rachel's clothes, huh?" - "I bet you and Nathan could go shoot bottles together like besties. Dope-doped on meds." - "What do you know about it?" - "Personal experience. Plus, I'm in highschool. Teens talk." - " So, I gave Nathan some prescriptive meds, as a friend who isn't doped up at your age. Woopee fucking doo." (?) Headphones
  • After a heated argument between Chloe and Max in her truck and after reaching school, actually Chloe keeps silent, but in one file you can hear her saying: "You can't help this time, Max. Not unless you can rewind 5 years to save my dad. Have a nice day at school." Headphones
  • Or she can say the same but without "at school". Headphones
  • Chloe also says: "Never mind, Max. My life isn't worth your precious time, anyway." Headphones

  • Chloe in 2008 (possibly noticing that Max is looking at her strangely): "You look like you're taking a picture of me."

  • Max in 2008 replying to William and trying to talk him out of driving that day: "Oh, I don't need a treat. M-maybe we can all walk over and pick up Joyce."
    [note 3]
  • Max in 2008, warning herself after having gone back in time through a photo: "Just do not get trapped in this photo. Don't think about it."

I sure hope you're not proud of yourself for playing a leaked, incomplete game, and, if you do it again, next time you roll through Arcadia Bay might be your last time. Choose wisely."Headphones

Episode Four - "Dark Room" Edit

  • Jefferson complimenting Chloe in front of the Prescott Dormitory: "With that ink you'd be a perfect model for skater clothes." - "Thanks. That'd be totally... bitchin'. Isn't that hobby talk there?" Headphones
  • Nathan after fighting with Warren on the dormitory floor: "I saw it... *laugh* I saw it, the storm. Everybody's waiting for the storm. [...] *shouting* The storm is coming! Oh, you're all gonna die! I see you, I see all of you, and you're all gonna die!"[note 5] Headphones
  • Max giving instructions to Warren after the fight "What you can do is hole up in your room and find out if there is any more storm warnings" (instead of finding informations about Nathan's father). It was probably linked to the unused dialogue with Nathan warning them that the storm is coming. Headphones
  • Warren playing a video game on the toilet in the boys' dormitory: "Come on, baby..."Headphones . . . "Gimme those points, freaky octopus..."Headphones . . . "One more match and you’re mine..."Headphones . . . "Level up, bitch!"Headphones

    Max: "Oh God, this is terrible. I shouldn't have let this happen. Now Chloe could actually go to jail. She'll understand that you were saving the life of a friend." "I'm glad you're back on my team, Chloe. I can't do this without you. You committed self-defense. Rachel would never let Frank attack you. We have to focus on Rachel right now. Time is the one thing we actually don't have anymore."
    Chloe: "Sigh. Uh okay, you're right. Focus on Rachel. It's all about Rachel now. Okay, what's wrong? What's right? Maybe you forgot I just fucking killed Frank Bowers. I killed a man who loved Rachel... and who Rachel loved. Is that how I help her? I can't believe I killed Frank. He was alive... and then he was dead... Because of me... and Rachel loved him... maybe more than me. So this is how I help her? Oh God. Max, I'm going to go to the police after we find Rachel... I can't live with keeping this a secret. I'm... I don't want to be a teenage fugitive on the run. And dude, I swear I won't even mention you. Okay? This is all me. What's going to happen to me now? Please, please, please let us find Rachel. I can't believe this is happening. I can't. Frank tried to kill you what else could I do?" Headphones
  • Max in the junkyard when realizing who shot Chloe (instead of remaining silent while staring at Jefferson): "You..." Headphones
  • Max in the Dark Room at the end of this episode: "No, stop... Somebody help me... Please, stop... *sob* Please... please, help... Don't do this... Oh, no... Help me! Why are you doing this?" Headphones

Episode Five - "Polarized" Edit

  • Jefferson to Max regarding Nathan in the Dark Room: "Like you Max, I... am a camera. And like some cultures believe I'm going to use my camera. To capture... your... soul. Now take a break. I need to deal with Nathan first. Don't worry, our session is just... getting started."[note 6] Headphones
  • Kate in Jefferson's class room after Max approaches her: "I hope I'm not bothering you. As long as I have friends like you everything should be okay. Max, you gave me strength. Thank you. Thank you for being such a good friend. You're so kind and patient with me. I hope you don't think I'm being silly. It's not such a shitty day now. You have a great heart and soul." Headphones
  • Max in the San Francisco Art Gallery: "I love this map of the city, it's so romantic." "I could take so many epic shots from anywhere in the city." "The Zeitgeist Gallery. Starring Max Caulfield." "Anyway, this really is so cool." "Windows by Maxine Caulfield, 2013." "Ugh, Maxine, for reals? Sigh, eat me." Headphones
  • Max in the San Francisco Art Gallery thinking about Chloe: "There'll be another contest, Max... You won't get another Chloe..." Headphones

  • David in the Dark Room after saving Max: "Now this is exactly why I don't trust man with goatees." Headphones
  • Max looking at Nathan's jacket after having been freed by David (the jacket didn't make it in the final game) "If Nathan had more help, more support *sigh* this might have gone a different way. I think about him, chilling on the grass in the other timeline... I hate what he did but... I can't hate him". Headphones
  • Max looking at Mr. Jefferson's car: "Almost as good as a DeLorean" (reference to Back to the Future) Headphones
  • Frank and Joyce talking about dogs and Chloe in the Two Whales Diner: "Frank, what's the name of your doggie again?" - "Pompidou. Don't laugh." - "Oh, that's so cute. Chloe wanted a dog, too." - "She'd be good with dogs. I know these things." - "If we get out of here, I'll buy her a whole pound." - "These dogs, they have a way of making us... human." Headphones
  • Warren trying to take a picture of himself with Max in the parking lot outside the End of the World party: "Say 'cheese,' dumbshit." Headphones
  • The following unused audio conversation was meant to take place in the Blackwell parking lot after we hear the following line from Chloe, "I hear you, Max... but do you think we should let Jefferson get away with torture and murder?" There were originally two choices planned aside from telling David about Jefferson: go to the police (active), or let karma deal with Jefferson (passive).
    • Max chooses "police":
      • Max: "No! We go to the police and let them take over. We have plenty of evidence."
      • Chloe: "Who owns the police here? And they'd probably put us in a fucking cell! Max, I know you're still in shock over what happened... but we have to face this reality... Let's go get him!"
    • Max chooses "karma":
      • Max: "As long as you're alive, I don't care. Karma will catch up to him eventually."
      • Chloe: "I'd like to think that and just take off with you right now.But Max... I don't trust karma anymore. Rachel deserves justice. Now. With our help..."
    • If Max chooses "David", and after Chloe asks Max why they should involve/trust him:
      • Max:"I know he's been difficult, but... he's the only one who knows what's going on and he's the only one who can help us."
  • Said by Max at the end of the parking lot scene when she takes Chloe's hand. It was probably cut due to redundancy as it's already clear that Chloe is following:[note 7] "Now follow me…"
  • Max's original line before it was tweaked for better structure, pacing and cadence in the version we hear in the game: "Yes, you are. So listen: In a few minutes, I won't know any of this happened... Nothing. You have to tell me exactly what I did and said... Just explain that I traveled through time using the photo... We have to stay in your room and do nothing. Then we explain everything to David... and we finally let him do his job."[note 8]
  • Kate in Max's nightmare depending on Max's success on saving Kate either thanking her or accusing her: "Max, you saved me. Thank you. Bless your soul. I think you need it. An angel can contain many forms, Max. How many more people will you save?" "Max, all I can say is... A-Fucking-Men." "Max, did you see me fall? Did you? I can't believe you would let me die like that. Gross. I thought you had special powers, Max. You're a phony. I hope you took a nice selfie when I hit the ground, Max. Remember: The last thing I ever saw was your face. Oh yes, Max, you care so much about me you told me to be strong. Yeah, that works. Next time you quote a bible, try to pick an apropos quote, idiot. My family doesn't care about me, understand? And if you think free hugs will save me you were out of your mind. Max, Nathan drugged me, and Jefferson took all those gross photos of me. I bet you wish you could take shots like that, huh? You might win a Pulitzer." Headphones
  • Additional dialog between Dark-Chloe and the others from the Dark Room sequence of Max's nightmare. Headphones
    • Chloe and Victoria: "Damn Victoria, you're a real woman. Not a little girl like Max." - "Look at my Yamamoto outfit. I don't wear jeans and t-shirts like that hillbilly hipster." - "I bet you'd even get some hella cool ink with me." - " I fucking love your tats Chloe. You're soo hot." - "It's the company I keep." - "I can't believe it took us so long to hook up."
    • Nathan and Chloe: Nathan: "I hear that. Do you..want to party? I have a drug store in my room." Chloe: "I bet you need it after that nerd Warren sucker punched you. Fuck yeah! Good thing Max stopped that nerd Warren from attacking you." Nathan: " Like I couldn't kick that homo's ass." Chloe: " I get so turned on watching bros fight. Let me show you Nathan."
    • Warren to Max: "I'm glad you dumped in the friend-zone for Chloe. After everything I did for you.. You'll just use her up and shit her out."
    • Warren and Chloe: Warren: "Have you seen her photography? My ten year old cousin does the same selfie shit. She doesn't end up in no art gallery." Chloe: "She's like all those artsy fartsy hipsters. But, Maxine would never get a tat. 'I'm too scared!' She wouldn't even turn in a photograph. She's just a coward. She never helped me."
    • Chloe to Mr. Jefferson about Max: "She's as tough as tapioca."
    • Warren to Chloe: "Damn, girl. You know how to make me feel like a man. Not a Max."
    • Chloe to Max: "Are you cereal? You can't even strike a real pose. Hey Max, next time you get rewind skills, try banging everybody or at least win the lottery. Do you really need a toy camera to take pictures? Grow the fuck up.
  • Max in the Dark Room scene of her nightmare. Max is distraught about Dark-Chloe and the real Chloe is trying to get her out of the nightmare. Max: "This is not real. Chloe, stop that. What's wrong with everybody? Max, you know this isn't happening. Do you think Chloe would act like that? Damn, this is cruel, just ignore everything. It's not real." Chloe: "Don't believe this. Max, you know that's not me. Dude, you know me better than that. Max, this is not reality. Damn, I would never pull that shit. Max, listen to my voice. Girl, you better trust me, not your dream." Headphones
  • There are several unused lines from the characters patrolling the stealth maze in Max's nightmare. Headphones

    • David Madsen: "Hey, Max. Do you have any money I can borrow to take care of my family? It'll be hard... AFTER YOU GOT ME FIRED." / "Good thing you signed that petition to stop my surveillance system. How many more people will die because of you?"

Why?" / "Now that me and Chloe are both dead, are you gonna kill Joyce too?" / "You saw how much pain Chloe was in. Why didn't you do what she asked? What kind of friend are you?" / "Max, I'm so disappointed that you didn't honor my daughter's wishes. You saw what she was going through.

  • Dark Chloe comes into the diner and speaks to the real Max instead of the bad Max: "Max, you know the truth. Do not listen to this bullshit. You know what we've been gone through together this week. You know where we stand. We're a team, and this is reality." Headphones
  • Dark Chloe trying to convince Max to let her die in the Two Whales Diner scene of her nightmare: "Max, you don't alway need to rescue me. I know you just feel guilty for not staying in touch. Dude, I'm so not worth this. Look at how much I fuck everybody over. Do you think we're gonna live happily ever after if you've destroyed Arcadia Bay? Give it up, Max. We're too different after all these years. I'm so tired of fighting the world, Max." Headphones

Arrangements Edit

Notes Edit

  1. This audio file where Max is stating that she knows Chloe hates science may have been left unused due to the Atom, Techno, and Science magazine issues found in Chloe's bedroom that contradict this statement. Although, Chloe may have hated science when Max knew her and her tastes could have changed over the years. An example of this is when Max tells Chloe in Episode 2: "What do you know about Chaos Theory, Miss 'I Hate Math'?", and Chloe replies with: "Five years ago, asswipe. Some people change."
  2. The last two lines have the same dialogue as lines that were given an echo effect and used in the game. The echoed dialogue is labelled with a prefix of 'Cue_E3_8A_Kitchen_FocusPicture' in the game text files.
  3. This may have been intended as a response to William's "Excuse me, ladies, I have to go rescue yonder Queen at the Sav-Mart. She doth have many bags of delicious grub for us to feast upon."
  4. The only dialogue option in the final game when Max looks at the snow doe is, "That's a cool snow doe..."
  5. This unused audio file indicates that it was planned to reveal that Nathan knew about the storm. That could also explain the hint in Principal Wells' office stating he would've tried to steal the Tobanga totem. One of the game directors later confirmed in an interview that it was thought to be in Episode 5, but was scrapped pre-release because it didn't make enough sense story-wise and there weren't enough hints to this before the final episode. Explained here: Life Is Strange Spoilercast - Kinda Funny Gamescast Special
  6. This unused audio file indicates that it was planned for Nathan to still be alive after Max finds herself in the Dark Room. It would've been possible for him to make another appearance in this episode, and it would've also been possible for Max to save him in that situation.
  7. Max's line in the final game, "I’ll always believe you, Chloe", sounds much more impactive.
  8. The line as it appears in the final game: "Yes, you are. So, listen... In a few minutes, I won't know any of this happened... nothing. We absolutely have to stay in your room and do nothing. Then we explain everything to David, and we finally let him do his job. You'll have to tell me exactly what I did and said just now. Just explain that I traveled through time using the photo."
  9. This audio file shows that William was planned to appear in this sequence of Max's nightmare at one point. Max's lines at Warren's locker have William in the filename, so he might have been around there.
  10. DONTNOD have stated that “cues are written originally and sometimes are cut to the final montage, for questions of rhythm, staging…”, and at this point in the game, they thought they had “sufficiently developed the romance between Chloe and Max even without [this cue], just with the images, the kiss that some players had according to their choices”, etc.
  11. Note 4 also applies to this audio cue. In addition, DONTNOD state that the camera zooming in on their hands as they held hands was sufficiently establishing a romance. Therefore, the inclusion of this dialogue cue became redundant with the visual cues already set up.
