Beyond: Two Souls Wiki

This is the transcript of "Homeless," the tenth chapter in the original version and the sixteenth chapter in the remixed version of Beyond: Two Souls.


(The chapter opens with Jodie walking alone on a cold and snowy street. A police car passes her. Jodie inserts a coin into a payphone and calls Nathan.)

Nathan (on phone): Hello?

Jodie: Nathan?

Nathan (on phone): Jodie! Jodie, where are you?

Jodie: They're back... They're all around me...

Nathan (on phone): Good god, Jodie, what's happening?

Jodie: I'm tired, I'm so tired... I don't think I'm gonna make it...

Nathan (on phone): Tell me where you are! I'll come, I'll come right now! Jodie? Jodie!

(Jodie hangs up and tries to walk away, but collapses in the snow. Aiden stops entities from attacking her and sees Stan nearby. He can move and disturb objects to get Stan's attention.)

Stan: Huh?

(Once Stan notices Jodie, he picks her up. While unconscious, Jodie has nightmares about the future, including escaping from a burning building.)

Stan: (echoing) Jodie! NO!

(Jodie wakes up and sees Stan.)

Stan: Hey... I was beginning to think you'd never wake up.

Jodie: Where am I?

Stan: You're in my place, kid. Not very luxurious but, it's quiet... I found you in the streets a few days ago. You were in pretty bad shape...

Jodie: You've been taking care of me...?

Stan: Oh, c'mon, somebody had to. Couldn't leave you lying there dying like a dog in the street. My name is Stan. What's your name?

Jodie: Jodie.

Stan: Welcome back to the land of the living, Jodie. Nice to have some company every once in a while...

(Stan picks up two coffee mugs.)

Stan: Some coffee? It's strong, tastes like shit but it'll hold you up against the cold. (Jodie takes the coffee) Careful, it's hot.

(Stan sits on the couch.)

Stan: How long you been on the streets, kid?

(If Jodie chooses "Get Up", she gets up.)

(If Jodie chooses "Lie":)

Jodie: Oh, just like... A few days...

Stan: Really? You're pretty beat up for someone who's only been out here a few days...

(If Jodie chooses "Evade":)

Jodie: Oh. I... I don't know... It's been way too cold to keep track of time...

(If Jodie chooses Truth:)

Jodie: A few weeks. Something like that.

(After Jodie chooses an option:)

Stan: Been about three years for me. (Stan drinks his coffee.) I don't know how many times I thought I was gonna snuff it, just go completely nuts. But I guess you can get used to anything... even live with nothing.

(After the above dialogue:)

Stan: You on the run? Mhm? Parents? Crazy boyfriend? Something like that?

(If Jodie chooses "Evade":)

Jodie: I guess I'm... running away from me...

Stan: Ain't we all, kid, ain't we all. Yeah, the problem is, you never can run far enough to forget exactly who you are...

(If Jodie chooses "Lie":)

Jodie: My boyfriend was... he was gonna kill me. So I just had to get away.

Stan: You made the right choice... Better be on the street than some guy treats you like his property.

(If Jodie chooses "Truth":)

Jodie: No, nothing like that...

Stan: Problems with the law, uh? Nah, is like, is none o' my goddamn business. As long as you ain't killed somebody, it's fine by me.

(After one of the dialogues:)

Stan: You got some place to go? Family, friends, somebody missin' you?

(If Jodie chooses "Truth":)

Jodie: No... Yeah, I guess there is someone, but... I don't wanna see him now. Not like this...

(Jodie gets up.)

Stan: You can stay here, if you like. I ain't got much to share but, whatever I got's yours.

Jodie: Thanks.

(Jodie puts the coffee on the table.)

(If Jodie chooses to pick the photo of Nancy, she sees a vision of her talking to Stan.)

Nancy: I... I got the results of the tests, Stan.

(If Jodie interacts with the door behind Stan's room, she is startled by an entity. Stan runs towards her.)

Stan: You've got the jitters... Are you on drugs..?

Jodie: No, no, no. No, no it's not what you think. It's hard to explain...

Stan: (upset) Well, then don't explain, save it. But I gotta tell you, I ain't got no dope and I want nothin' to do with that shit, you got it?

Jodie: No, I... I don't do drugs, okay? That's the truth.

(Stan leaves.)

(If Jodie chooses to talk to Stan, some dialogue options appear.)

(If Jodie chooses "Trust":)

Jodie: I wish you hadn't saved me.

Stan: I know, kid... I know. But, y'know, we all go through that. Sometimes you just gotta hang on in there and just wait for it to pass. Look, everybody here has their own place. Sometimes it just takes a while to figure out where it is.

(If Jodie chooses "Others?")

Jodie: Do you know the others?

(Stan looks at Jodie and points at Walter.)

Stan: That's Walter over there. Alright, he drinks a little bit too much, but he's a good guy.

(Stan points at Jimmy.)

Stan: And that's Jimmy. Better steer clear of him when he can't get a fix.

(Stan points at Tuesday.)

Stan: And that girl is Tuesday. She's pregnant. Poor kid...

(If Jodie chooses "Thanks":)

Jodie: Thanks, Stan.

Stan: Yeah.

(If Jodie chooses "Help":)

Jodie: Why did you help me?

Stan: Wasn't gonna let ya freeze to death! I was able to help ya, so I did. It's no big deal.

(If Jodie picked up the photo of Nancy earlier, the "Woman" dialogue appears.)

Jodie: Was there someone close to you who died recently?

Stan: My... My wife... Nancy... Died of leukemia four years ago... How'd you know that?

Jodie: No... I... Ne-Never mind... Never mind...

(Jodie immediately gets up. The same happens if she chooses "Get Up".)

(Jodie can pick up a knife stabbed in a tire. She is given the option to cut her wrist with it or put it back.)

(If Jodie tries to cut herself, Aiden throws the knife away from her.)

(If Jodie walks to the ledge, she can choose to jump or back away.)

(If Jodie chooses to jump, Aiden lifts her back onto her feet before she can fall from the ledge.)

(After some time has passed, Stan proposes a plan to Jodie.)

Stan: Ahm, we've got nothing left to eat... Gotta do somethin' about it. You, uh... you wanna see how things work around here?

Jodie: Sure.

(Jodie follows Stan outdoors to sit on a piece of cardboard while Stan tells Jodie what they need.

Stan: We need to make about five dollars and that's for something hot. Alright, we'll try here.

(Jodie can choose if she wants to find her own way to get money or sit with Stan on the table. If she chooses to sit with Stan on the cartoon piece, she'll be given dialogues.)

(If Jodie chooses "Cold":)

Jodie: Uh! I'm so cold...

Stan: Yeah.

(If Jodie chooses "Hungry":)

Jodie: I'm starving...

Stan: You're gonna have to hold on until we get some cash. Think about something else.

(If Jodie chooses "Dollars":)

Jodie: How long does it take to get five dollars?

Stan: Well, I dunno, depends on people's good grace. Could take a couple hours... Could take all week...

(If Jodie runs out of dialogue or chooses to "Get Up", she gets up and talks to Stan.)

Jodie: Stan... I don't think it makes sense, both of us being in the same place.

Stan: Yeah...

Jodie: I'm gonna go try over there...

Stan: Good luck, kid.

(If Jodie chooses to talk to the homeless man playing guitar:)

Jodie: Is that your guitar?

Homeless man: Yup. Just about froze my fingers off trying to play it before. You wanna try? Be my guest...

(If Jodie chooses to play the guitar, she is prompted to tune the guitar strings. She is given the option to stop playing at any time. If she continues playing without stopping, she plays until night has fallen and realizes she earned enough money. The homeless man also gives Jodie some coins.)

Jodie: Thanks!

(If Jodie got enough money before night:)

Jodie: We've got enough. Let's see how Stan's doing...

(If Jodie did not earn enough money before night:)

Jodie: It's getting dark out. We better go see Stan...

(After one of the dialogues, Jodie approaches Stan.)

Jodie: How is it going?

(Stan checks his can to see he only has coins. He tosses them back into the can in disappointment.)

Stan: Not great. You?

(If Jodie didn't earn enough money, she shows Stan whatever she earned. Stan sighs in disappointment and puts any coins Jodie earned in his pockets.)

Stan: That's not gonna help much. Alright, never mind. You stay here and I'll see what I can scrounge up, okay?

(If Jodie earned enough money, she shows the money to Stan.)

Stan: Holy sh...! Jodie! Where did you get all that cash?

Jodie: I found it...

(If Jodie played the guitar:)

Jodie: There was a guy, with a guitar and... I play guitar, I mean... I made a, I made a few bucks.

Stan: Oh well! That's something! That's really something. Stay right here. I'm gonna get us some food.

(If Jodie stole money from an ATM:)

Stan: Jodie... If you stole that money...

Jodie: It's not like anyone's going to miss it. And this way we can eat tonight. Stan, it's not like I killed anybody for it...

Stan: I'm gonna go get us some food. Stay right here.

(After one of the outcomes, Stan goes to the supermarket and is harassed by a group of thugs.)

Thug Leader: Whatcha got there, old timer?!

Thug 1: Well lookie here. You win the lottery, lucky son of a bitch?!

Stan: I don't want any trouble...

Thug Leader: Trouble? Trouble?! That is disrespectful, old man. Do we look like trouble?

Thug 1: He's sayin' we look like trouble...

Stan: Oh c'mon, guys...

Thug Leader: You filmin' this, Ed?

Ed: Yeeeaah. I'm on it man.

(The thugs start to beat Stan.)

Jodie: Fuck!

(Jodie can choose to do nothing or save Stan by running towards the thugs.)

Thug Leader: D'ya see that? How the asshole kinda just folded right up?

Stan: My turn...

(Stan tries to fight back, but to no avail.)

Thug Leader: How'd ya like that, ya bum? You're a fucking cockroach, ya know? Get the fuck off my street...

(If Aiden tries to help:)

Jodie: You're still too weak, Aiden. I'll have to handle this...

(If Jodie took too much time to save Stan, police sirens sound, alerting the thugs.)

Thug 1: Cops! Let's get outta here!

(The thugs run away, leaving Stan beaten in the snow. Jodie runs to check on him.)

Jodie: Oh Stan! God, I'm so sorry, I'm so sorry I didn't help you...

Stan: Against four of them? Just thank Christ they didn't get to you...

(Jodie helps Stan to get up and picks up the bag.)

Stan: Assholes... No respect for no one and nothin'... C'mon, kid. Let's go.

(If Jodie chooses to save Stan:)

Jodie: Back off... and you won't get hurt.

(They stop beating Stan after looking at Jodie.)

Thug Leader: Lookie here! Looks like bum's got a girlfriend!

(The thug leader starts to touch and harass Jodie.)

Thug Leader: Let's demonstrate how we deal with skanky lowlife bitches.

(If Jodie fails the first QTE, the thug leader hits her with a baseball bat in the face, and she knocks him out. If she executes it, she knocks him out immediately.)

(If Jodie fails the QTEs, she gets hit by the thugs. Otherwise, she avoids being hit.)

(If Jodie fails the QTE to defend herself from getting hit with a bat, she gets hit with it. Otherwise, she beats him up.)

(If Jodie fails the QTE to avoid getting hit by a bottle, the thug hits her with it. Otherwise, she blocks it. Regardless of whether this QTE is missed or not, the thugs grab her and push her into a column.)

(If Jodie fails the QTE to avoid getting hit by a baseball bat, he hits her with it. Otherwise, she kicks it away.)

(If Jodie fails the QTE to defend herself from the thug's knee, she gets hit. Otherwise she blocks it.)

(Regardless of whether Jodie misses or executes the following QTE, she hits the thugs.)

(If Jodie fails the QTE to evade one thug's punch, she gets punched and punches him in turn. Otherwise, she dodges it and beats him up.)

(If Jodie fails the QTE to defend herself from getting hit by the thug leader, she gets hit by him with a baseball bat.)

(If Jodie missed too many QTEs, the thug continues to beat her with the bat.)

Thug Leader: Don't you miss this, Ed. I reckon it'll go viral!

(Police sirens sound, alerting the thugs.)

Thug 1: Cops! Let's get outta here!

(The thugs let her go and escape.)

Thug Leader: I will see you later... bitch.

Stan: Jodie? Jodie... You okay?

(Jodie gets up.)

Jodie: You really wanna know?

(Stan helps her get up.)

Stan: C'mon. You really stood your ground, girl. Against those four assholes... You saved me a beating, that's for sure.

Jodie: You helped me... and I owe you one. Come on, let's go.

(If Jodie executed all or most of the QTEs, she grabs the bat and beats the thugs with it. She points the bat at Ed, who is still filming.)

Ed: Fuck!

Thug 1: The bitch is crazy!

Thug Leader: I'll see you later, bitch...

Thug 2: I'm outta here!

(Jodie checks on Stan while the thugs escape.)

Stan: How did you do that?

Jodie: I... I learned how to fight in the army.

Stan: Yeah, but... But there was four of them, 'gainst one of you.

Jodie: Four assholes. They did not know how to fight.

(Stan laughs. Jodie picks up the bag.)

Jodie: Let's get outta here before they come back.

Stan: Alright.

(After one of the outcomes, Jodie stands apart from the group, looking at the street below.)

Stan: All right, guys! Come and get it!!

(Jodie turns around to see what they're eating.)

Walter: Clean outta juice!

(If Jodie earned enough money:)

Stan: Thanks to Jodie, we're gonna EAT tonight!

Stan: Come on, Jodie. Help yourself! Hey! I even got a bit of chocolate for dessert!

Walter: Chocolate? I don't reckon I ever remember what that tastes like...

(If Jodie didn't earn enough money.)

Stan: Help yourself, Jodie. Hope ya like tuna, 'cause that's all there is...

(Jodie can interact with a can of food. The can will be full of tuna if she didn't earned enough money, or full of molten chocolate if she earned enough money.)

Walter: What happened to you, Stan?!

(If Jodie didn't save Stan:)

Stan: Four punks jumped me. Didn't stand a chance. Lucky to make it back.

(If Jodie chose to save Stan but lost the fight:)

Stan: Just a bunch of assholes playin' beat-the-bum... Jodie tried to help me, but there was too many of 'em. We were lucky to make it back.

(If Jodie chose to save Stan and won the fight:)

Stan: Aw, I got in a fight. If it wasn't for Jodie I'd still be lyin' there... Ya shoulda seen it! There were four guys! Jodie kicked herself some ass!

(After one of the outcomes, Jodie is given a set of dialogues.)
