A Specialized FAQ for Animal Crossing: Wild World
Resetti's Dialog

This is version A created by Liquefy on May 26, 2006.  If you have any 
questions, corrections, additions, suggestions, or comments, please contact me 
at jps5@hotmail.com.


If you turn off the power without saving your game or if your game quits 
because your battery power ends, you will be visited by a mole named Resetti 
just outside your door when you next play the game.  Resetti usually does not 
come if you lose power or communication while playing via the Internet or via 
DS-to-DS.

******************************************************************************
THE "APOLOGIES"
******************************************************************************
There are 16 possible "apologies" that Resetti demands you type during the 
fourth dialog.  They have to be typed with exact capitalization and 
punctuation:

Forgive me.
Hail Resetti!
I love to save.
I need help!
I'm a cheater.
I'm dirt. DIRT! [one space after period]
I'm a loser.
I'm so dumb!
I'm so sorry.
It's my fault.
My apologies.
Never again!
No cheating!
Resetti rules!
Save! SAVE! [one space after first exclamation mark]
So sorry!

******************************************************************************
FIRST DIALOG
******************************************************************************
Yeah, so uh, hello there.
Lemme introduce myself.
Name's Resetti.  Mr. Resetti.
You and me...we met before?
At the museum, somethin' like that?
Yeah, whatever.
I guess I oughta thank you for buying this game, Animal Crossing: Wild World.
Yeah, so, on behalf of everyone at Nintendo, I...
Uh...  What was next, again?
Aw, forget it!
I ain't recitin' that stupid line again!
I give up!
Let's get down to business, whaddaya say?
You an' me gotta talk a bit here.
I gotta let you in on why I've come to visit.
You followin' me, bright eyes?
When you quit playin' last...
How'd you do it?
You do anythin' unusual, maybe?
Like...I dunno, you turned off the power without savin'?
Anythin' like that?
Huh?  I didn't hear whatcha said there.
...You did?  You quit without savin'?
I KNEW it!
Don't tell me, I'll tell YOU, pal!
THAT'S the reason!
THAT'S why I'm here!
If you're gonna turn the power off, you gotta save first!
C'mon, use your head!
Didn't old man Nook do his routine on how you can save in the attic?
If that's too much work, you even got START right there...lazy bones!
Just shuttin' down is the same as resettin', and you know what that means!
Yeah!  I gotta tunnel out here and lecture you!
Got it?  Good!  Don't forget!
So tell me somethin':  you even know what resettin' does to your play time?
It vanishes it.
All that time you spent playin'?
POOF!  Gone.  Bye-bye!
No big deal, huh?
Maybe it was just a minute of your life.
What do I know, right?
Well, I'll TELL you what this mole knows:  you gotta treasure life.
Every second!
And don't even talk to me about other games, neither.
This ain't another game.
This is Animal Crossing: Wild World.
We...encourage you NOT to do stuff like that.
Hey, I know what you're thinkin'.
"This is MY game.  I can do whatever I want!"
Look, I hear ya, pal, loud an' clear, but we got rules here.
They ain't negotiable.
Did I explain that slow enough for you?  Yeah?
We clear here?  Good.
Seein' as this is your first offense, I'm gonna let you off easy this time, OK?
But you oughta know, kid, I'm goin' outta my way to be friendly here.
That's right, friendly...
Normally, well...I got some anger-management issues.
I was born with a short fuse, and that thing gets shorter every single day.
I don't try to be mean or scary or nothin', but some people are real sensitive.
Hey, Ex-CUUUUUUSE me!
Pfff...  I'm just tryin' to scratch out a livin' here.
I ain't a goblin, y'know?
But, hey, fear and loathin' comes with the hard hat, so...BOOOOOO!
BAH HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!
...Yeesh!  Look at the time!
I gotta get tunnelin'.
Here's hopin' I don't have to come see you no more.
But I'm warnin' you...
I gotta talk to you again, punk, an' I'm gonna be wearin' my angry hat.
It is one ugly hat, too.
You'll get straight-up, high-octane, mad mole!
No cream, no sugar, punk!
And don't you forget it!
Now, SCRAM!

******************************************************************************
SECOND DIALOG
******************************************************************************
YOU!
Hold it right there, punk!
What did you do? Huh?
Tell me what you did!
What am I talkin' about?  Huh?
Don't you play dumb with me!
Don't you DARE!
Before you turn the power off, SAVE!
You gotta SAVE!
I KNOW you knew that!
Don't even lie to me!
When you power down without following procedure...
Know what happens?
I get lights and sirens playin' and electric mambo at HQ!
KINDA HARD TO MISS!
Gotta relax.  Deep breath.  Haaaaaah...
I can see now, you don't listen too well...
Well, clean out your ears, [name].
Life's SERIOUS!
Calm...  Haah...  Happy mole...
You hear me?  SERIOUS!
Haaah...  Cool, dark tunnel...  Release the anger...
You're gonna gimme health problems, punk.
Don't be such a twerp...  Haaaaaah...
.........
...OK, listen, everybody, and I mean everybody, makes mistakes.
That's just life.
And maybe you didn't plan to do this.
Maybe this is all a big misunderstandin'.
Yeah, it's possible.
But you know somethin'?
It don't make a clod of difference.
Think about it, will ya?
What, you wanna fix all the things that go wrong?
You wanna snap your fingers and erase your screw-ups?
Sure, who don't?
I mean, pssshh, I wish I hadn't dropped outta dental school.
Good money there.
I REALLY wish I hadn't washed my white boxers with my red sweatshirt...BUT!
Is turnin' the power off without savin' gonna change any of that?
...Of course it ain't, punk!
That kinda thing only happens in video games!
In REAL life, in the REAL world, it ain't happenin'.
And that's normal.  Hear me?
That's the way it is, right?
It's takin' whatever comes your way, the good AND the bad, that gives life
     flavor.
It's all that stuff rolled together that makes life worth livin'.
Turnin' the power off 'cause you didn't get an item you really, really wanted?
Or tryin' to backtrack and avoid some kinda sticky situation?
That's PATHETIC!
C'mon, [name].
Stop playin' like that.
Stop LIVIN' like that!
I mean, grow up, will ya?
You're better than this...
You know anybody who's got a perfect life?
'Course not.
'Cause nothin's perfect.
So I'll say it one more time and hope you REALLY hear me this time...
Mistakes and disappointment make the sweet things in life that much sweeter.
You gotta take everythin' life throws atcha.
Roll with the punches, hear me?
Deal with the consequences of your actions, 'cause life ain't no video game.
You feel that irony, punk?
Aw, for the luvva dirt...
What's with the face, punk?
You think I need that look?
You got that how-long's-this-guy-gonna-keep-yappin'-at-me face.  Yeah.
Well, wipe it off, ingrate!
You're lucky I ain't MORE mad, you dirty resetter!
Ah, whatever.
All this tunnelin' and barkin's got me beat.
I'm done with you, kid.
I'm cuttin' you loose.
But you gotta promise me, when you're don playin'...
You'll SAVE before you turn the power off!  SAAAAAVE!
...You got that?
Oh, and before I forget, one last thing...
Wash your hands after you go to the bathroom!
We clear?  Good!
Now SCRAM!

******************************************************************************
THIRD DIALOG
******************************************************************************
AAAAAAARGH!
What?  What's in your head?
You think I wouldn't notice?
You think I'd let it slide?
NOT LIKELY, PUNK!
SAVE before you turn the power off!  SAVE!
What don't you understand?  AAAARGH!
Whoa...
I think I screamed too hard there...
Talk about a head rush, everythin's sparkly...
YOU!  You're a real piece of work, you know that, kid?
What is it you're tryin' to do to me here?
Don't you know I got high blood pressure and chronic tunnel toe?
My doc tells me I gotta take it easy, try not to get too worked up.
Do I LOOK not worked up?  No!
All this chasin' you around's gonna do me in.
You're doin' this on purpose, ain't you?  Yeah!
You're enjoyin' this!  AARGH!
Why don'tcha just toilet-paper my cave while you're at it, you little punk!

Don't you kids ever LISTEN?
You wouldn't believe what I gotta do to stay healthy.
Lately I've been tryin' to make yogurt from scratch!
You hear me?  YOGURT!
The scary part is havin' to taste-test it.
You ever try spicy meatball yogurt?
Not good.
So waddaya say?
You gonna stop messin' with me, [name]?

[Select "Whatever."]
Uh...  What was that?
All you had to do was say "OK"!
Two stinkin' letters!
"O" and "K"!
You're pushin' the wrong buttons, kid.
The big, red, angry buttons.
You ain't takin' this seriously.
Worse, you ain't takin' ME seriously!
Kids today, no clue what you're thinkin'.
You got alien brains or somethin'.
[It repeats from above.]

[Select "OK." (or later, "Whatever.")]
Ah, whatever...
You're all mouth and no heart, you know that?
You're laughin' at me right now, aren't ya?
Yeah, I see.  I got your number, punk.
Know somethin'?
I've had it with you.
I'm tired of wastin' my time.
I'm gonna go watch some TV.
One of my favorite movies is on:  "A Few Good Moles."
All right, set me up with a little "you-know-what" and I'll hit the tunnel.
C'mon...  You know.  Right?
There's no way you don't know.  I KNOW you know!
No tip whatsoever?  Uh-uh.
I ain't buyin' it, punk.
I know you got somethin'.
What?  I ain't askin' for all your cash!
Just a little taste, is all...
I don't need a full meal!
Just a side order, no big deal, know what I mean?
Look, I know you got somethin'.
I hear them pockets jinglin'!
...
What's the hold up, punk?
It's not like I'm muggin' you over here.
What're you, a mime?
You forget how to talk?
You don't tip?
You ain't a tipper?
Tippin' against your moral fiber?
Say somethin'!
You don't wanna listen to me no more?
You tired of talkin' to me?  Huh?
...That is IT!
You done it now, punk!
You made the list!
That's right!
You been LISTED!
You WILL learn to save before you turn the power off.
That's a promise!
You got yourself on the bad side of a bad mole on a bad day, punk!
You're gonna regret this for the rest of your life, you resettin' cheater!
Oh, yeah, one last thing...
When you take a bath, try usin' some soap, stinky!
We clear?  Good!
Now SCRAM!

******************************************************************************
FOURTH DIALOG
******************************************************************************
AAAAAAARGH!
You know how many people I gotta repeat myself to?
JUST YOU, PUNK!
Read my lips:  save first, and then, and ONLY then, turn the power off...
How many times I gotta tell you that?
...HEY!
You doin' this...on purpose?
Are you maybe turnin' the power off without savin' for laughs?
You wanna get the crazy mole out here an' see what he says next, that it?
This entertains you, punk?
You think this is funny?
A little stand-up mole?
Ah-HA!  I saw that, kid!
You rolled your eyes at me!
You DO think this is a joke!
Haaaah...
Y'know, I been with the Reset Intervention Bureau since the family took over.
I gotta say, though, I ain't NEVER had to deal with a nutjob like you.
It's OK.  I been trained.
It just means I gotta lose the kid gloves an' get serious.
I may even hit the gym and go a few rounds with my cousin, Vicious Vole Vinnie.
See if you wanna keep resettin' after I bounce a couple mole elbows off ya!
For the time bein', though, you get to tell me how sorry you are.
Testin', testin', 1, 2, 3!
All right, no feedback.
We're good to go.
Now I'm gonna give you an apology, an' you're gonna repeat it back to me.
You get it wrong, I know you ain't serious, and you get to say it again!
Uh, lemme see...
Yeah, that's a good one!
You ready?  Here goes!

"Forgive me."
"Hail Resetti!"
"I love to save."
"I need help!"
"I'm a cheater."
"I'm dirt. DIRT!" [one space after period]
"I'm a loser."
"I'm so dumb!"
"I'm so sorry."
"It's my fault."
"My apologies."
"Never again!"
"No cheating!"
"Resetti rules!"
"Save! SAVE!" [one space after first exclamation mark]
"So sorry!"

SAY IT!
[Type what's between the quotes with exact capitalization and punctuation.]

[If you typed correctly the first time:]
Hmmm... Naw, that ain't gonna cut it neither.
That wasn't from the heart.
You didn't really mean it.
That was just lip service.
You spat on the mic, too!
Guess you're gonna have to try somethin' else, punk.
OK...  What next?
GOT IT!  This is a good one!
You ready?  Here goes!

[If you typed incorrectly:]
...WHAT WAS THAT?!
No!  No!  NO!
Say it again!
You ready?  Here goes!

[If you typed correctly the second or later time:]
...You really mean it?
You ain't just playin' with me?  Huh?
OK.  What you just said?
DON'T FORGET IT!
Seriously, no more, OK?
This better be the last time, I mean it!
Oh, hold on, one last thing.
Brush your teeth once in a while.
And don't forget to floss, too, moss-mouth!
We clear?  Good!
Now SCRAM!

******************************************************************************
FIFTH DIALOG
******************************************************************************
AAAAAARGH!!!
YOU AGAIN?!?
STOP
MESSIN'
WITH ME!
What's it gonna take to get it through your thick skull?
If you're gonna quit, you gotta SAVE first!
Use your head, punk!
It's even written in the manual!
HAAH...  HAAAH...HAAAAAAH...
...You hate me, don't you?
I mean, you just hate me more than anythin', right?
More than laundry, traffic jams, an' bad breath all rolled together, Right?
You hate me so much you can't stand it, huh?
That's why you keep doin' this over an' over, right?
You're tryin' to do me in.
...Hey, FINE BY ME!
At least I know how you really feel, punk.
Lemme tell you, though, you ain't the only one with feelin's here.  We clear?
An' today's the day I put a stop to this.
You listenin', you little monster?
Until you can convince me you're truly an' sincerely sorry, I ain't goin' home!
You an' me are gonna go round an' round an' round!
First, you're gonna show me how sorry you are, and I'd better FEEL it!
I don't want no smirks, eye-rolls, or nothin' like that.
I want remorse, punk!
Oh, an' don't try lyin'.
I can smell lies!  Smell 'em!
All you gotta do is be honest.
Gimme some genuine emotion, know what I mean?
You go for melodrama, you're gonna get the wrath of Resetti, you hear me?
All right, let's do this.
Tell me, and tell me true...
After all this, how sorry are you?

[Select anything from "Really sorry!" to "Very sorry."]
...Huh?  Is that the best you can do?  You SERIOUS?!
You know what?  You're nothin' to me.
Nothin' but a thoughtless punk.
I dunno, maybe you're slow.
Or maybe you don't know how to express yourself.
Pay attention.
"Apologies" are a buncha words strung together, right?
Follow me?
We use 'em to tell others that we wish we hadn't done whatever it is we did.  
OK?
HOW you say the words is as important as the words themselves, [name].
So you gotta show me you know HOW to say the words!
ONE MORE TIME!

[Select anything less than "Really sorry!" and it repeats from above.]

[Select "Really sorry!"]
Hmmm...  Uh...  Yeah...
OK, if that's how you really feel...
Guess it'll have to do at this point.
I got nothin' left over here, so I'm gonna cut you some slack.
We're clear here, ain't we, [name]?
You're gonna save before you quit, right?
Don't be pullin' my chain here.
You follow the rules an' finish your game, then you go back to your life.
You go do whatever it is you do out there in your world...all right?
Don't you let me down!
I don't wanna talk about this no more.
Hey, hold it, one last thing.
Chew your food, and stop talking with your mouth full, you little piggy!
We clear?  Good!
Now SCRAM!
