"A Moment of Calm" is an optional gameplay element in Life is Strange 2. Moments of Calm are special moments in the game when the protagonist, Sean Diaz, may sit or lean against an object and contemplate his current situation with relaxing music playing in the background. They usually provide additional information or the protagonist's inner thoughts and give the player a chance to rest. A new feature in Life is Strange 2 is the addition of multiple speaking participants, who the player can either initially join or be interrupted by.

There are 9 Moments of Calm so far in Life is Strange 2, four of which can no longer be returned after exiting (bold printed), e.g. by right clicking on PC.

Benchpark

(Daniel interrupts Sean's monologue and a chat between the two starts.)

Daniel: "Whoaaaaaa... Look at that..."
Sean: "Yeah..."
Daniel: "So cool!"
Sean: "Never seen you get so jacked up over a nice view before..."
Daniel: "So? I've never seen anything like this! Never ever!"
Sean: "Yeah... I guess you haven't... I remember when Dad..."
Daniel: "I wish Dad was here with us..."
Sean: "Well... Thanks! Not cool enough anymore?"
Daniel: "Yes, you're super cool... But... I just wish the family was together at home... It'd be cool to watch a movie and get a pizza and eat ice cream."
Sean: "Dude... Stop. I told you we have to keep going... We'll see Dad later... Right now it's just... You and me... Okay?"
Daniel: "Yeah! It's our park! We can do whatever we want!"
Sean: "That's right... So... We better go build a secret base so we can hide out for the night... Are you ready?"

Sean talked to Daniel about Lord of the Rings
Daniel: "Frodo is always ready for adventure, Sean-Wise."

Daniel: "Yes! I can build anything! We just have to find some cool blocks around here and be careful of Creepers..."

Daniel: "It's... beautiful!"
Sean: "Pretty amazing, huh? See? It's not so bad here in the forest..."
Sean: "Hey. Look at those clouds. What do they look like to you?"
Daniel: "I don't know... Cotton candy?"
Sean: "That's it? Cotton candy?"
Daniel: "I dunno... What do you see?"

Sean: "A dragon!"
Daniel: "What? Where?"
Sean: "Ok. There's the tail... and the horns... and the fangs! And the smoke coming out of it's mouth!"
Daniel: "Oh, I see it! It's awesome! Wouldn't it be cool if we had a pet dragon?"

Sean: "Andrew!"
Daniel: "Our... babysitter? Where?"
Sean: "I swear, look... There's his gross ponytail... There's his pointy rat face..."
Daniel: "Oh no, it's so real! Ugh... Andrew sucked. I'm glad we don't need a babysitter anymore..."

Daniel: "Ooo... I see something else! There's a giant douchebag!"
Sean: "Oh yeah? Where?"
Daniel: "Right here."
Sean: "Right here, huh?"
(Sean gets up by exiting the moment)
Sean: "Ah. C'mon, let's go eat something."

Benchstation
Bench at the Bear Station.
"Dad always had a thing for gas stations. We've stopped at so many on our road trips. He says they're all kind of the same, they feel familiar, almost like home... The same bad coffee, same nasty toilets, same food... but I don't feel at home at all."
(Daniel interrupts Sean's monologue and a chat between the two starts.)

Daniel: "Sean? I'm hungry, can we go eat something please?"
Sean: "Yeah... Sorry, just... daydreaming."
Daniel: "Okay."
Sean: "Let's go."

Ep2 MoC house couch
Couch outside the Abandoned House.
"I feel like this last month has just... flied over us. We're so lucky we found that old cabin. Gave us time to rest and... Process all that happened. Brody was right. We're stronger now. We look out for each other. We're in this together. These woods are so peaceful. So quiet. No planes, no highways... Just the river... Continuously flowing. I wish we could stay here longer. But Daniel's health is getting worse every day. And the food is running low. Will we need to move... Again?"
Ep2 MoC mezzanine
Mezzanine in the Reynolds Household.
"It's so weird to be back here again... Claire and Stephen are kinda weird sometimes, but... They do care about us... and I'm glad they're spoiling Daniel... wish I could. Dad never really got along with them though. I barely know them... Heh, family, right? We're safe, that's all I need."
(Daniel interrupts Sean's monologue and a chat between the two starts.)

Daniel: "What are you doing, Sean?"
Sean: "Nothing, just... taking a look at the house..."
Daniel: "It's pretty cool here. It's not like home... But... Grandma and Grandpa are nice."
Sean: "Yeah, they are. We're lucky they took us in."
Daniel: "How long are we gonna stay with them?"
Sean: "I don't know. As long as it's safe for us. And for them, I guess."
Daniel: "Yeah."

Agreed to the Heist
"So this is it... once again. Can't pull our shit together for more than a month. At least for once it was a great fucking month. Did a lot, learned a lot. At least... for the first time, I don't miss home. I just wanna move forward. I already miss these psychos, though. But if we manage tonight's plan... Maybe we'll stick together for a while. Shit, we'll see. Stop overthinking. You're not a teenager anymore."

...and kissed Finn
"So this is it... once again. Can't pull our shit together for more than a month. At least I got to try something new... different... with Finn. Feels fucking good. At least... for the first time, I don't miss home. I just wanna move forward. I already miss these psychos, though. But if we manage tonight's plan... Maybe we'll stick together for a while. Shit, we'll see. Stop overthinking. You're not a teenager anymore."

Refused the Heist

At least... for the first time, I don't miss home. I just wanna move forward. I already miss these psychos, though. We're on our own, now. But I feel... confident? Shit, we'll see. Stop overthinking. You're not a teenager anymore."

Episode Four - "Faith" Edit

Location Comments
Episode4 MoC
Outside Karen's room at the motel.
Note: Activated during a scene, not free-roam.
Sean heads outside for a breath of fresh air, and Karen joins him. If Sean stays outside when given the choice (optionally smoking), they have a brief conversation followed by the moment of calm.
(Karen and Sean's conversation.)

Ask for a smoke

Sean: Hey, um... mind if I bum a smoke?
Karen: Sure. Still got a few left.
Karen holds out her cigarette box for Sean to take one. After he puts it in his mouth, Karen begins to raise her lighter towards it before Sean gestures away and uses Esteban's lighter.
Karen: Wow, haven't seen that lighter in ages... your dad loved that thing.
Sean: I know. only thing I have left of his...
Karen: Oh, man, Esteban hated when I smoked... He didn't want me to die an early death... Fuck... life can be so cynical, sometimes...
Sean: I remember he would smoke sometimes... long ago...
Karen: We didn't fight much, but when we did... I would go out on the porch and light up so I could calm down... Esteban would come over and ask for a drag. Then we'd just look up at the sky and watch the stars... or the planes... I do miss that.
Sean: I used to do the same with my best friend, Lyla... Sitting on the porch, just letting time go...
Karen: That's when you know someone is good to you. When you can just sit together... shut up and let the universe do its own thing...

Don't ask for anything

Karen: Oh, man, Esteban hated when I smoked... He didn't want me to die an early death... Fuck... life can be so cynical, sometimes...
Sean: I remember he would smoke sometimes... long ago...
Karen: We didn't fight much, but when we did... I would go out on the porch and light up so I could calm down... Esteban would come over and ask for a drag. Then we'd just look up at the sky and watch the stars... or the planes... I do miss that.
Sean: I used to do the same with my best friend, Lyla... Sitting on the porch, just letting time go...
Karen: That's when you know someone is good to you. When you can just sit together... shut up and let he universe do its own thing...

Go back inside
