Beyond: Two Souls Wiki

This is the transcript of "Like Other Girls," the twelfth chapter in the original version and the eighth chapter in the remixed version of Beyond: Two Souls.


(The chapter opens with Jodie arguing with Nathan and Cole in her apartment at the DPA complex. In the PlayStation 4 and Steam versions of the game, her clothing and hairstyle vary depending on whether she left Kirsten's house early or got revenge on Kirsten and her friends in "The Party.")

Nathan: I said no. End of story.

Jodie: PLEASE, Nathan, just this once. All the other girls in my class are going and I won't be late. I promise, okay?

Nathan: You're wasting your breath, Jodie.

Jodie: It's just not FAIR! How come everyone can go and I can't? I do EVERYTHING you ask of me ALL WEEK, and I NEVER get to have any fun...

Nathan: For the hundredth time, you are NOT like everyone else, and there are rules...

Jodie: I didn't ASK to be different! I just want to go out and have friends and be like other girls my age!

Nathan: You'll never be like them. You need to get used to that. Good night.

(Nathan leaves the apartment.)

Jodie: Aaahhh!

(Nathan closes the door. Jodie crosses her arms and sits down. Cole reaches out to comfort her, but she shakes her shoulder to prevent him from touching her.)

Cole: I'll be next door. Let me know if you need anything.

(Cole leaves the apartment and closes the door. Jodie can stand up.)

(If Jodie chooses to talk to Cole when highlighted:)

Jodie: It's Saturday night and I'm locked up in here! Come on, I just want to go out and have some fun!

Cole: I can't do it babe. Rules are rules.

(Jodie's dialogues can be seen here.)

(If Jodie chooses "Threaten":)

Jodie: You better let me out, you better let me out, 'cause if you don't, I'm gonna stop working in class and you can say goodbye to ever working with Aiden ever again!

Cole: Knock it off Jodie, now you're just acting like a child.

(If Jodie chooses "Aggressive":)

Jodie: I HATE you, Cole! And I hate Nathan, and I hate everyone in this rotten fucking place!

Cole: I know you don't mean it, Jodie. Nathan just wants to protect you, that's all.

(If Jodie chooses "Convince":)

Jodie: Please... Come on, Cole, please, please let me out, just this once... Why do you have to tell Nathan EVERYTHING?

Cole: I'm sorry, princess, but I can't. It's not my call.

(If Jodie chooses to interact with the door, she pulls the handle, knocks on it, and then kicks it in anger when it doesn't open.)

Jodie: I want to go out, do you hear me, Cole? Fucking let me out!!!

(Cole gets disappointed and talks to Jodie through the microphone in his office.)

Cole: Hey, no swearing, okay, Jodie?

(If Aiden starts smashing things immediately:)

Cole: Stop it, Jodie - this is not gonna do you any good. You're grounded, period.

(If Aiden keeps destroying things:)

Cole: Hey Jodie! You know better than to use Aiden when you're angry.

(If Aiden keeps destroying things again:)

Cole: Are you done?! Are you proud of yourself? I hope so! Because you have to clean all that up...

(If Aiden destroys things last time:)

Jodie: Stop it, Aiden. They don't give a shit if we break everything in this goddamn room. If that's not gonna work, we have to figure out what WILL.

(Cole gets a call on his phone.)

Cole: Yeah, yeah she's calmed down. She smashed up the apartment first, but she's calmed down... Okay, sure, I'll see you tomorrow.

(Aiden takes over Cole's body until he stands down and opens the door.)

Jodie: I'm really sorry, Cole. I hate myself for doing this, but... you understand, right? I just... I NEED to go out tonight...

(Jodie opens slowly the door. Aiden talks to Jodie.)

Jodie: Yeah, I know. It's too late to turn back now.

(Jodie walks to a door that seems to be locked.)

Jodie: Locked. 'Course it is... (Jodie looks at Cole's access card and takes it to open the door.)

(A guard stops Jodie and Cole as they approach the exit.)

Guard: Well hello, Cole. Jodie... Little late for a day trip, isn't it?

(Jodie is given a set of dialogues.)

(If Jodie chooses "Fresh Air":)

Jodie: Uh... Yeah, I just... I'm feeling, I'm not... I'm feeling sick. I'm feeling sick, so we were just gonna go and get some fresh air...

Guard: You okay? You want us to call the Infirmary?

Jodie: No, no, no. No, there's no need. I'm... Cole's looking after me... so, right, Cole...? (Cole can't speak because he's still possessed.) So...

(If Jodie chooses "Stars":)

Jodie: Cole was just taking me to see the shooting stars... Apparently there's like tons up here tonight! Have you seen them yet?

Guard: Listen, I don't know if Professor Dawkins would be alright with you going outside in the middle of the night...

Jodie: Please! I mean, it's only gonna be, like, a few minutes, and Cole's with me and... (The guard sighs.) I... I, I... I've never seen a shooting star...

Guard: Alright, go ahead. I'll pretend I never saw you.

(If Jodie chooses "Dawkins":)

Jodie: Well... Was Nathan's idea! Some kind of, like, night training in the D-Wing... I mean, as if my days weren't enough for his experiments... (Jodie laughs awkwardly.)

Guard: It's funny, 'cause you know? I just spoke to Professor Dawkins and -

Jodie: Oh, well, yeah! He just called my cell... And I don't know, it's just like a sudden flash of genius, or something. And... So, yeah... He wants me to do this new experiment... I don't know really

Guard: uh -you know them scientists, they never stop...

(Jodie laughs awkwardly again.)

(After picking a dialogue:)

Guard: What's up, Cole? Cat got your tongue?

(Jodie is given four dialogues.)

(If Jodie chooses "Avoid":)

Jodie: Co... Cole - we should probably get going now... (Turns to face the guard.) Goodnight, then.

(If Jodie chooses "Sad":)

Jodie: He doesn't feel too much like talking today... Uh, I think his, um, his grandmother died or something...

(If Jodie chooses "Bad Mood":)

Jodie: He... uh... he's in a really bad mood... I... He hasn't even said a word all day...

(If Jodie chooses one wrong dialogue, the guard takes a step forward. If she picks a second wrong dialogue, he takes another step forward. If she picks a third wrong dialogue, he gets near the possessed Cole.)

Guard: Hold up there! What's wrong with you, Cole? Cole!

(The guard touches Cole, freeing him from Aiden's control.)

Cole: Huh?! What happened?!

Guard: Jesus Christ! - What the hell was that all about?

Cole: (Walks toward Jodie angrily.) ... I think I know EXACTLY what this was all about...

(The scene fades to black as if Jodie got caught at the gate.)

(If Jodie chooses "Speak":)

(Cole moans, trying to speak.)

Jodie: He lo... He lost his voice I think it's like a... a virus or something... That's more than... That's more than I've gotten out of him all day long, so...

Guard: Pff... I hope it's not contagious, buddy... You should be home in bed, if you ask me - safer for all of us! Yeah, well, see ya... Go on now.

(Jodie and Cole go outside.)

Jodie: Well... At least we don't have to look for Cole's car... There's cameras everywhere. Better not hang around here too long...

(Jodie tries to open Cole's car door, but it's locked. Cole uses his key fob to unlock the car.)

Jodie: Now get in the car and start it up...

(Cole sits in the driver's seat and starts the car. Jodie can choose to sit in the passenger seat, the backseat, or the trunk.)

(If Jodie chooses to sit in the backseat:)

Jodie: Damn - I mean I'm not really out of sight...

(If Jodie chooses "Exit":)

(If Jodie chooses "Start":)
