Letters Edit

Two letters located in Nathan Prescott's dorm room in Episode 4 were removed from the game.

Jefferson's Letter Edit

(E4_5A_NathanRoom_JeffersonLetter_SP01)

Dear Mr. Prescott,

As a photography teacher at Blackwell Academy, it’s my privilege to meet many talented 
and ambitious students who I believe will all reach their goals in one way or another. 
This is a realistic view of today’s highly limited and competitive art market -- and a 
pragmatic POV I stress in my lectures. I can say with as much validity as my awards and 
experience are worth to you, that Nathan Prescott has one of the finest eyes for 
photography I’ve ever encountered at Blackwell. Talent without passion or commitment 
can be a great hobby, but not a career. To be blunt, Nathan has been very lax this 
semester about turning in his assignments and his erratic behavior in class has been 
noted by faculty and students. 

Even though Nathan is a legal adult, I feel that as his father and Blackwell 
benefactor, you know your son better than anybody here and would appreciate the spirit 
of my concern for his well-being. On the academic side, Nathan must turn in all of his
remaining assignments for his portfolio within two weeks in order to pass the class and 
retain his excellent GPA. 

Thank you for your time and I’m always available to talk if you have any questions. 

Best, 
Mark Jefferson

Max Caulfield's comment: "Damn, Mr. Prescott sure doesn’t own Mr. Jefferson...yet. Does he think Nathan has a better eye than me?" (Act_E4_5A_NathanRoom_JeffersonLetter_Max_010)

Wells' Letter Edit

(E4_5A_NathanRoom_WellsLetter_SP01)

Dear Nathan,

I wanted to drop you a note to say that if you’re having any issues with classes or 
dorm life, you can always come to my office, or I can recommend wiser folks than 
myself to lend a helping ear. I’d like to think you know I have your best interests 
at heart despite some our of past disagreements.

Blackwell Academy should bring out the best in our students and vice versa, so if you 
feel that isn’t the case, let’s work together to find the right solution. I know 
school can be a challenging time in a young person’s life (especially given your 
Prescott legacy) but you have many options available here at Blackwell.
 
Again, please drop by anytime if you’d like to discuss this in person and of course, 
our conversation would be strictly confidential.
 
Sincerely
Ray Wells

Nathan's Poster Edit

(E4_5A_NathanRoom_ExhibitionPoster_SP01)

Text to describe a poster seen on display in Nathan's room does not display on the poster when looking at it. Only stylized lines can be seen which symbolize additional text.[note 1] The unused text could have been intended for the poster to originally appear as a note rather than something Max just comments on as she does in the game.

Dialogue Edit

Episode 3 Campus Edit

Max(Think): I do need a break from the Chloe Rollercoaster... And I just want to help her...

Mr. Jefferson crosses Max's path when she is on her way back to dorm.

Jefferson: Max, can I talk to you for a moment?

Max: Uh, sure, Mr. Jefferson.

KateAlive

Jefferson: I just wanted to remind you how proud we all are of you for helping Kate.

Max: Thanks, but I didn't do much. She just needed somebody with her...

Jefferson: You are truly modest, Max. Aside from the selfies. But give yourself some credit. Hey, you alright?

Max: I just feel weird about what happened in the Principal's office yesterday...

KateDead

Jefferson: I just wanted to see how you were doing.

Max: I'm okay. It's hard to focus on much after what happened...

Jefferson: I know. I'm truly sorry for Kate and that you all had to see that. If you want, there are counselors available.

Max: No... but I don't know why I did that...

Acused Jefferson

Jefferson: When you accused me of making Kate cry?

Max: Yeah... I feel shitty about you not getting to do the "Everyday Hero contest"... Do you hate me now?

Jefferson burned out

Jefferson: Honestly, Max? I was burned out on the contest. You think I'm a pretentious artist here, imagine me in San Francisco... I'm still rooting for you though.

Max: Thanks, Mr. Jefferson. But a career in photography seems as far away now as San Francisco... I'm just not confident.

Not Everyday Hero

Jefferson: Max, I'm not an "Everyday Hero." I just tried to help Kate, but she didn't want my advice, okay?

Max: How did you try to help Kate? She ran away crying...

Jefferson: Who needs a surveillance system when you have Max Caulfield and her camera eye? And, it's none of your business.

Max: I also saw you and Victoria talking last night...

Jefferson: You might be the nosiest student in the history of Blackwell.

Max: I know, I know, it's a bad habit.

Tried to help Kate

Jefferson: Max, if I was as confused as you I might have done the same thing. But I honestly only tried to help Kate.

Max: How did you try to help Kate? She ran away crying...

Jefferson: Who needs a surveillance system when you have Max Caulfield and her camera eye? And, it's none of your business.

Max: I also saw you and Victoria talking last night...

Jefferson: You might be the nosiest student in the history of Blackwell.

Max: I know, I know, it's a bad habit.

Acused Nathan unsuccessfully

Jefferson: You mean accusing Nathan Prescott of drugging Kate?

Max: He drugged Kate. I know it.

Jefferson: Since you reported him for having a gun as well, I want you to be careful around here. Not to scare you.

Max: Too late. I'm not always that brave.

Acused Nathan successfully

Jefferson: You mean getting Nathan Prescott expelled?

Max: Yes. And now, I expect him to come after me...

Jefferson: Well, I think Nathan is more bark than bite. Don't let him scare you.

Max: Too late. I'm not always that brave.

Acused David unsuccessfully

Jefferson: When you accused David Madsen of bullying Kate?

Max: Yes. Even though he absolutely did.

Jefferson: I absolutely believe you—as you can tell, I'm not a fan of his work. Don't let him scare you.

Max: Too late. I'm not always that brave.

Acused David successfully

Jefferson: About David Madsen losing his Blackwell privileges?

Max: He deserved it. So why do I feel guilty?

Jefferson: Because you have a good heart, Max. Nothing to feel guilty about. But don't waste that feeling on Madsen. Pardon my French, but he's fucking asshole. Don't let him scare you.

Max: Too late. I'm not always that brave.

Jefferson: I hope that's not a fatal character flaw... Wouldn't want to deprive the art world of your vision.

retro selfies

Max: Oh, you mean my silly retro selfies? The art world would only laugh.

What vision

Max: What "vision"?

Me neither

Max: Me neither. It just seems like another world.

not see future

Max: It's so hard for me to see the future when I'm always looking backwards...

Jefferson Suspected

Jefferson: Regret and nostalgia can be a dangerous combo. You can't change the past, Max. You just have to accept your choices and "walk on." Which is my clever exit cue.

Max Suspected

Jefferson: Once you get back from your suspension, we're going to talk about your future in photography, cool?

(Any other case)

Jefferson: We need to sit down soon and talk about your future in photography, cool?

"Rough Cut" Dialogue Edit

Some very rough dialogue labeled "Cue_E5_6A_Parking_CHChloe_Phase01" exists for the "Parking Lot - Focus" chapter within the subtitle files. No audio exists for this "rough cut". The dialogue contains spelling errors along with pacing and grammatical issues that suggest it may have been written by somebody whose first language is not English and somebody who may not have performed an official writing role. This rough scene may have been written as a guide for the writer to polish up into the impactive dialogue we now hear in the game. The full block of dialogue is as follows (Note that Cue_E5_6A_Parking_CHChloe_Phase01_[Max/Chloe]_003 to 005 is missing):

This is a direct copy and paste from the game's text files. For better readability select the "improved readability" tab, which has been formatted and has improvements noted with brackets. (Note to wiki editors: Please do not correct any issues you see within the below text.)
