Guide Information

This document is a transcription of character dialogue and text shown
throughout the game.  This guide does cover all spoken conversations among
characters, but does not cover all of the unspoken text involving Jamesí
character (basically anything that doesnít have much to do with the plot,
such as collecting or examining items).  Please email if you find any
substantial mistakes within this document (e.g. donít email me if I put a ...
where there should be a ....).  This guide also (obviously) contains extreme
spoilers about the plot of the game.  I strongly suggest that you not read it
if you have never played the game before and are considering playing it any
time in the future.

A. The Observation Deck
- - - - - - - - - - - - -

*James is shown looking at himself in a restroom mirror.  After staring at
himself for a short time he takes in a deep breath.*

James:  Mary... Could you really be in this town?

*James walks outside of restroom and into the observation deck parking lot.
Maryís voice is then heard as James walks to the edge of the parking lot that
overlooks Silent hill.*

Mary:  In my restless dreams, I see that town.
       Silent Hill.
       You promised youíd take me there again someday,
       But you never did.
       Well Iím alone there now...
       In our Ďspecial placeí...
       Waiting for you...

James:  I got a letter.
        The name on the envelope said ĎMary.í
        My wifeís name...
        Itís ridiculous, couldnít possibly be true...
        Thatís what I keep telling myself...
        A dead person canít write a letter.
        Mary died of that damn disease three years ago.
        So then why am I looking for her?
        Our Ďspecial placeí...
        What could she mean?
        This whole town was our special place.
        Does she mean the park on the lake?
        We spent the whole day there.
        Just the two of us, staring at the water.
        Could Mary really be there?
        Is she really alive... waiting for me?

B. The Graveyard
- - - - - - - - -

*On his journey into town, James walks into graveyard where he sees a girl
examining one of the graves and approaches her*

James:  Excuse me, I...

*The girl steps back from grave and gasps in surprise*

Girl:  I, Iím sorry...I, I...  I was just....

James:  No, itís okay.  I didnít mean to scare you.  Iím kind of lost.

Girl:  Lost?

James:  Yeah, Iím looking for Silent Hill.  Is this the right way?

*James raises his left arm and points*

Girl:  Um yeah....  Itís hard to see with this fog, but thereís only the one
       road.  You canít miss it.

James:  Thanks.

Girl:  But...

James:  Yes...?

Girl:  I think youíd better stay away.  This uh... this town... thereís
       something... ďwrongĒ with it.  Itís kind of hard to explain, but...

James:  Is it dangerous?

Girl:  Maybe... And itís not just the fog either...Itís....

James:  Okay I got it.  Iíll be careful.

Girl:  Iím not lying.

James:  No, I believe you.  Itís just...I guess I really donít care if itís
        dangerous or not.  Iím going to town either way.

Girl:  But why?

James:  Iím looking for... someone.

Girl:  Who, who, who is it?

James:  Someone... very important to me.  Iíd do anything if I could be with
        her again.

Girl:  Me too.  Iím looking for my mama...  I mean my mother.  Itís been so
       long since Iíve seen her.  I thought my father and brother were here,
       but I canít find them either...  Iím sorry... Itís not your problem.

James:  No, I... I hope you find them.

Girl:  Yeah, you too.

*James begins to walk towards the graveyard exit*

+If you go back and talk to the girl a second time the following dialogue
takes place+

*The girl turns around from looking at a grave*

Girl:  Arenít you looking for someone?

James:  Thatís right...

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
C. First Encounter with an Enemy
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

*James walks into an area of the street where there are long streaks of blood
and it looks like a body has been drug across the ground*

James:  Are these marks... blood!?

*Camera zooms to show a strange form farther down the street walking away
from James until it disappears into the fog*

James:  That shadow just now...

*James follows another set of blood streaks he finds further down the street
down into an alleyway and eventually ends up in some type of old, brick
edifice which looks to be undergoing construction.  He hears a radio making
strange noises within the construction site and picks it up to examine it.
He eventually notices that the strange form he saw earlier in the street is
in the construction area with him kneeling next to a dead body.  As the
figure begins to walk towards James, he picks up a board with a nail in it
and attacks the creature until it lays bleeding and motionless on the ground.
James then examines the creature.*

James:  Is it dead?  What the hell is it?  Itís not human...

*As James exits the construction area he remembers the radio he picked up and
takes it out of his jacket pocket in order to examine it.*

James:  Oh yeah.  ...This thing broken?

*A very staticy female voices comes on the radio as James looks it over*

Voice:  Ja......Iím....e.
        Come to .......s....
        ..........ting f........ you k........

James:  What the ...?  Iíd better take it anyway.  I might need it.

A. The Unreachable Key
- - - - - - - - - - - -

*James sees a key lying on the ground, but has to stick his arm through a
metal bar partition in order to reach it.*

James:  Thereís a key on the ground on the other side of the bars.
        If I stretch my arm out, I just might be able to reach it.

*The player is then given the option of whether or not to pick up the key.
If the player chooses ďYesĒ James gets down on his hands and knees and begins
reaching out towards the key.  He is struggling to reach it when suddenly
someone on the other side of the bars kicks the key out of his reach and then
steps on Jamesí hand.*

James:  Ow!!

Little girl:  Ha-ha!

James:  Hey wait!

*The little girl runs down the dark hallway on the other side of the metal
bars until she disappears.*

James:  Damn it!

- - - - - - - - - - -
B. Another Dead Body
- - - - - - - - - - -

*Once James enters the hallway of the second floor apartments after obtaining
the handgun he hears a loud scream as he approaches the intersection of the
middle north-south and the east-west hallways.*

James:  What was that!?  Some kind of noise north of here....

*James then finds his way to room 208.  There he finds a dead body sitting in
front of a television.  There is blood splattered across the corpses face and
body, as well as all over the television and part of the wall.*

James:  Oh my God....  Who couldíve...

- - - - - - - - - - -
C. James Meets Eddie
- - - - - - - - - - -

*James eventually makes his way to room 101 of the Woodside apartments.  Once
he enters he finds a dead body hanging out of the refrigerator in the

James:  What the...?  Who could have done this...

*There is also the sound of someone being sick coming from one of the rooms
within the apartment.  When James enters the bathroom of the apartment, he
finds a man throwing up into the bathroom toilet.*

Man:  It wasnít me!  I didnít do it!

James:  Do what?

Man: I didnít do anything.  I, I swear!  He was like this when I got here...

James:  My uh, my nameís James.  James Sunderland.

Man:  Ummm... Eddie.

James:  Eddie, whoís that dead guy in the kitchen?

Eddie:  I didnít do it.  I swear I didnít kill anybody.

James:  Youíre not friends with that red, pyramid thing, are you?

Eddie:  Red pyramid thing?  I donít know what yer talkiní about.
        Honest.  But I did see some weird-lookiní monsters.
        They scared the hell outta me, so I ran in here...

James:  Well, I guess this place isnít too safe either.  What happened here

Eddie:  Uh I, I told ya I donít know.  Iím not even from this town.  I just,
        I just...

James:  You too, huh.  Something just brought you here, right?

Eddie:  Umm... yeah.  You could say that...

James:  Well whatever it is...  I think you better get out of here soon.

Eddie:  Yeah yer right.  What about you?

James:  Iíll leave as soon as Iím done here.  Eddie... be careful.

Eddie:  James, I...  I... um... You be careful too.

+If you go back to the bathroom to talk to Eddie a second time the following
dialogue takes place+

James:  Eddie, are you okay?

Eddie:  Yeah, I guess...

- - - - - - - - - - - - -
D. Room 109 and Angela
- - - - - - - - - - - - -

*James eventually makes his way to the adjacent apartment building ďBlue
Creek ApartmentsĒ.  There, he walks into one of the bedrooms of apartment 109
and finds the girl he talked to earlier in the graveyard lying on the floor
holding a butcher knife and staring at herself in a mirror that takes up the
entire area of one of the walls. *

Girl:  Oh... itís you.

James:  Yeah...  Iím James

Girl:  Angela...

James:  Angela... okay.  I donít know what youíre planning...  But thereís
        always another way.

Angela:  Really?  But...  Youíre the same as me.  Itís easier just to run.
         Besides, itís what we deserve.

James:  No... Iím not like you.

Angela:  *sarcasm*Are you afraid?*/sarcasm*
         I, Iím sorry.

James:  Itís okay...  Did you find your mother?

Angela:  Not yet... Sheís not anywhere.

James:  Did she live in this apartment building?

Angela:  I donít know...

James:  So all you know is she lived in this town?

Angela:  What did you say?  How do you know that?

James:  Well...  I just figured, cause this is where youíre looking for her.
        How else would I know?

Angela:  Yeah...

James:  Am I right?

Angela:  Iím so tired...

James:  So why did you come to this town anyway?

Angela:  ...I, Iím sorry.  Did you find... the person youíre looking for?

James:  Not yet.

*James pulls a picture of Mary out of his jacket and stoops down to show it
to Angela*

James:  Her nameís Mary.  Sheís my wife...

*Angela looks at the picture and shakes her head indicating that she does not
recognize Mary.*

Angela:  Iím sorry.

James:  Itís okay.  Anyway, sheís dead.  I donít know why I think sheís here.

Angela:  ...Sheís dead?

James:  Donít worry, Iím not crazy.  Least, I donít think so...

Angela:  Iíve gotta find my mama...

*Angela stands up and begins walking towards the door*

James:  Should I go with you?  This townís dangerous.  Now I know what you
        meant back there in the cemetery.

Angela:  Iíll be okay by myself.  Besides, Iíd just slow you down.

James: What about that?

*James points to the butcher knife Angela is still holding*

Angela:  Will you hold it for me?

James:  Sure.  No problem.

Angela:  If I kept it....  Iím not sure what I might do.

*James steps towards Angela and reaches his hand out to take the knife from
her.  Angela steps back, screams, and points the knife at James.*

Angela:  No!! Iím sorry...Iíve been bad... Please donít...

*Angela sets the knife on a stand before walking out of the room.  After
watching her leave, James walks over to the stand and picks up the knife in
order to examine it.*

A. Second Meeting with the Little Girl
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

*After James makes his way out of the apartments, he walks down an alley and
comes across the same little girl that stepped on his hand earlier.  She is
sitting on a wall that separates the apartments from the alleyway and is

James:  It was you, wasnít it?  Youíre the one who stepped on my hand.

Little girl:  *smiling* I donít know...  Maybe I did...

James:  Whatís a little girl like you doing here anyway?

Little girl:  Huh?  Are you blind or something?

James:  Whatís that letter?

Little girl:  None of your business.

*The little girl stands up and begins to walk away*

Little girl:  You didnít love Mary anyway!

James:  Wait!  How do you know Maryís name!

*By the time James finishes his sentence the girl is gone from the wall and
nowhere to be seen*

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
B. James at the Entrance to Rosewater Park
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

*After going through a tunnel, James reaches a large brick sign with the
words ďRosewater ParkĒ on it*

James:  So this is that park...  Mary....Are you here?

- - - - - - - - - - -
C. James Meets Maria
- - - - - - - - - - -

*James makes his way further into Rosewater Park until he reaches an area
that looks out onto the water(or what used to be the water).  He sees a woman
looking out at the lake and makes his way towards her.*

James:  Mary?

*The woman turns around and smiles at James*

James:  No... youíre not.

Woman:  Do I look like your girlfriend?

James:  No.... my late wife.  I canít believe it...  You could be her twin.
        Your face, your voice...  Just your hair and clothes are different.

Woman:  My name... is Maria.  I donít look like a ghost.  Do I?  See?  Feel
        how warm I am.

*Maria then takes Jamesí right hand and places it on her chest.  James backs
away and pulls his hand away from Maria.*

James:  Youíre really not Mary!

Maria:  I told you... Iím Maria.

James:  Sorry, I was confused.

*James begins to walk away from Maria in the direction he just came from.*

Maria:  Where are you going?

James:  Iím looking for Mary.  Have you seen her?

Maria:  Didnít you say she died?

James:  Oh yeah... three years ago.  But I got a letter from her.  She said
        she was waiting in our Ďspecial placeí.

Maria:  And thatís here?  Anyway, I havenít seen her.  Is this your only
        Ďspecial placeí?

*What looks to be an old black and white movie clip of Mary is shown.  This
seems to be one of Jamesí memories*

James:  Well, thereís the hotel, too, I guess.  The one on the lake... I
        wonder if itís still there.

Maria:  The Lakeview Hotel?  Yeah, itís still there.  So, the hotel was your
        Ďspecial placeí, huh? Iíll bet it was.

*James begins to walk away and Maria reaches out to grab his arm.*

Maria:  Donít get so mad.  I was just joking.  Anyway, itís not that way.
        Itís this way.

*Maria points in the opposite direction that James just came from.  James
begins to walk away from Maria in the direction she just pointed.  Maria
follows him and James looks back.*

James:  Youíre coming with me?

Maria:  You were gonna just leave me here?

James:  No but...

Maria:  With all these monsters around?

James:  No, I just...

Maria:  Iím all alone here.  Everyone else is gone...  I look like Mary,
        donít I?  You loved her, right?
        Or maybe you hated her...

James:  Donít be ridiculous.

*James begins to walk away and Maria follows him.*

Maria:  So itís okay?

James:  Yeah, fine.

- - - - - - - - - - - -
D.  The Bowling Alley
- - - - - - - - - - - -

*James and Maria eventually make their way to Peteís Bowl-O-RamaĒ from
Rosewater Park.  James begins to open the front door.*

Maria:  Iíll wait here.  I hate bowling.

James:  I didnít come here to play, you know.

Maria:  Hurry back, okay.

*James walks into the bowling alley and opens the only unlocked door into a
storage room.  The scene cuts to Eddie and the little girl that James first
saw in the apartments.  Eddie is sitting at a table eating pizza while the
little girl is sitting next to him on the table.*

Little Girl:  So whatíd you do?  Robbery, murder?

Eddie:  Nah, nothing like that.

Little Girl:  Hah!  Youíre just a gutless fatso!

Eddie:  Whadda you have to say that for?

Little Girl:  I thought you said the cops were after you.

Eddie:  No, I just ran Ďcause I was scared.  I donít know what the cops are

Laura:  But if you did something bad, why donít you just say you were sorry?
        Well... I guess I run away a lots too.

Eddie:  Itís no good.  They wouldnít listen.  Nobody will ever forgive me.

*The scene cuts back to James in the storeroom, but Eddieís voice is still
heard talking to Laura.*

Eddie:  Did ya find the lady youíre looking for...  Whatís her name... Mary?

*James eventually finds his way into the room with Eddie and Laura.  There,
he finds Eddie still at the table eating pizza.  However, the little girl is
gone from the table and not seen.*

James:  Eddie?

Eddie:  Oh... umm, yer...

James:  James.  We met in the apartment building.

Eddie:  Yeah, I remember, but...

James:  Are you alone here, Eddie?

Eddie:  Uh, no...

*A green bowling ball is shown rolling across the floor towards Eddie.  Eddie
and James both look at the bowling ball and then follow the direction it came
from with their eyes.  The little girl James met earlier in the apartments is
shown walking towards the exit door.*

Little Girl:  Bye-bye!

*The little girl then walks out the door.*

James:  Wait!  Come back!  Eddie!  Letís go after her!

Eddie:  Huh?  Laura?  But why...?

James:  Laura?  Is that her name?

Eddie:  Thatís what she said.

James:  This town is full of monsters!  How can you sit there and eat pizza!?

Eddie:  She said she was fine by herself...  She said a fatso like me would
        just slow her down.

James:  Forget you...

+The following dialogue takes place if James goes back and talks to Eddie a
second time+

James:  Who is that girl anyhow?

Eddie:  I donít know.  All I know is her name.  I swear.

*James then exits to the bowling alley parking lot and finds that Maria is
gone from where she was standing when he entered.  After he begins to walk
outside Maria comes jogging up to him panting.*

James:  Did a little girl run out of here?

Maria:  Yeah, she was too fast for me!  Arenít you gonna go after her?

+The following dialogue takes place if James tries to leave in a different
direction than the one Maria just came walking from.+

Maria:  Where are you going?  This isnít the way that little girl went.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
E. Alleyway behind Heavenís Night
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

*James and Maria eventually find there way to a small alleyway behind the
rear parking lot at Peteís Bowl-O-Rama.  There, Maria points to a small gap
between the intersection of a brick building and a concrete wall.*

Maria:  She went through there.

*James looks through the small gap and it is made obvious that there is no
way either he or Maria can fit through it.*

James:  Is there any other way?

Maria:  Yeah, there is.

*Maria points to a metal door they passed leading into the brick building.*

Maria:  Right through there.

*James then walks up to the door and tries to open it, but the knob on the
door wonít turn.*

James:  Itís no good.  Itís locked.

*Maria then pushes James aside and starts pulling keys out of various areas
of her clothing and looks to be using them to unlock the door.  It is not
made clear whether Maria is actually using several different keys or if she
just uses one and is messing around with James by pretending to use several.
When Maria has finished unlocking the door she steps aside and puts her hand
out signaling James that he can go ahead and open it.*

- - - - - - - - - -
F. Following Laura
- - - - - - - - - -

*James and Maria eventually make their way out of Heavenís Night Club and
begin walking down one of the city streets.  Once they have gone far enough
down the street, a clip is shown of Laura walking up the steps to a hospital
only a couple hundred feet from where James and Maria are standing.*

Maria:  Over there!

*Maria points towards the hospital just before Laura enters the building.*

+The following text is shown if James continues down the street past the
hospital Laura entered.+

James:  I have to go after Laura.  I canít just leave her all alone.
        Also...maybe sheíll be able to tell me something about Mary.

A. Womenís Locker Room
- - - - - - - - - - - -

*James and Maria eventually make their way to the womenís locker room on the
third floor of the hospital.  Sitting on a table in the room, James finds a
teddy bear and decides to pick it up and examine it.*

James:  Ow!!

*James drops the teddy bear.*

Maria:  Whatís wrong?

James:  I just pricked myself...

Maria:  Are you okay?

James:  Yeah.

*James pulls a needle out of the bearís head.*

- - - - - - - - - - - -
B. Maria Takes a Break
- - - - - - - - - - - -

*James and Maria find their way to room S3 on the second floor of the
hospital.  James examines the room while Maria sits down on an old, dirty bed
in the small room.  She looks very tired and is slumped over.*

Maria:  James, wait a minute.

*Maria coughs a couple of times.*

Maria:  Iím kinda tired....

*Maria produces a prescription bottle from her pocket, takes out a pill, and
swallows it.*

Maria:  Itís just a hangover.

James:  You should rest.

*Maria lays down on the bed.*

Maria:  Mmm.  So comfy...

James:  Iím going to go look for her... for Laura.  Iíll be back as soon as I

+If you talk to Maria a second time the following dialogue takes place.+

Maria:  James, I wanna ask you something.  What if... what if you canít find
        Mary?  What will you do?

James:  I havenít thought about that.

+If you leave and come back to talk to Maria a third time the following
dialogue takes place.+

*Maria coughs a few times*

Maria:  Iíll be okay soon.  Did you find Laura?

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
C. James Finally Finds Laura
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

*James walks into room C2 on the first floor of the hospital, where he finds
Laura on the floor between two beds playing with some teddy bears.  She is
laughing and smiling, but hasnít noticed that James has entered the room.*

James:  Laura?

Laura:  Huh?  You know my name?

James:  Eddie told me.

Laura:  That big, fat blabbermouth.

James:  How do you know about Mary?

Laura:  Whatís the big deal?

James:  Why canít you just tell me?

Laura:  You gonna yell at me if I donít?

James:  No... I wonít.

Laura:  I was friends with Mary...  We met at the hospital.  It was last

James:  You liar!!
        *apologetically*Laura, I...

Laura:  Fine!  Donít believe me!

James:  But last year, Mary was already...  Iím sorry Laura.  Anyway, letís

*Laura grabs her flashlight and begins to walk out with James.*

James:  We can talk about this later.  This is no place for a kid.
        There are all sorts of strange things around here...
        I canít believe you havenít even gotten a scratch on you.

Laura:  Why should I?

*Laura and James walk out into the hospital hallway together.  They are
walking through the hallway together when suddenly Laura reaches out and
begins to pull on Jamesí arm in the opposite direction that they are

Laura:  Wait!  Wait!  Thereís something I gotta get!

James:  Later, okay?

*James begins to start walking in the direction they were going again.*

Laura:  But itís really important!

*James turns around to face Laura.*

James:  What is it?

Laura:  A letter from Mary.

James:  Huh?

Laura:  I wanna go get it?  Is that okay?

James:  Yes, yes.

*James and Laura walk down to a room with double doors near the end of the
hallway.  Laura takes a key out from her pocket, unlocks it, and opens the

Laura:  Címon hurry up!

*James looks into the dark room.*

James:  Is it in there?

Laura:  Yeah.  In the back.

*James begins to walk slowly into the room while Laura stands outside holding
the door open.*

James:  Whatíre you doing, Laura?

Laura:  Itís further back.  In the desk.

*James continues walking cautiously into the room until he is standing in the
middle of it.  Suddenly the door is slammed shut behind him.*

James:  Laura, what are you doing!?

*James runs to the door and begins trying to open it, but the doors wonít
move.  Suddenly the mouth of some strange creature is shown.*

Laura:  Ha-ha!  I tricked you!

James:  Open the door, Laura.

Laura:  Why should I?  Iím a liar, right?  Want me to open it?  Huh? huh? Do

*James has turned his back to the door and is facing towards the center of
the room.  His hand is pounding on the door.*

Laura:  Whatís the magic word?

*All of a sudden a strange looking caged monster falls down and is hanging
off the ceiling.*

James:  Laura!

Laura:  Okay.  I guess I wonít open it...  I think Iíll just leave you like

James:  You snotty little brat!  Open up!

Laura:  Why you, you...

James:  Laura?

Laura:  You fartface!

D. Maria and the Basementís Basement
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

*James goes down to the basement and is about to begin climbing down a ladder
into the basementís basement when suddenly Maria walks through the door.*

Maria:  James!

James:  Mary!
        Oh Maria itís you... I thought you were....  Sorry...

*Maria shakes her head.*

James:  Anyway, Iím glad youíre alive...

Maria:  *Angrily*ďAnywayĒ!?  What do you mean ďAnywayĒ!?
        You donít sound very happy to see me.  I was almost killed back
        there!  Why didnít you try to save me?  All you care about is that
        dead wife of yours!  Iíve never been so scared in my whole life!
        You couldnít care less about me, could you?

James:  No, I just...

Maria:  Then stay with me!  Donít ever leave me alone!  Youíre supposed to
        take care of me!

*Maria buries her face in Jamesí shoulder and he puts his arm around her.
Maria pulls back and begins talking to James again.*

Maria:  So what about Laura?  Did you find her?

James:  Yeah, but she ran away.

Maria:  Weíve got to find her!

James:  You really seem to care about her.  Do you know her?

Maria:  I never met her before.  I just feel sorry for her.  Sheís all
        alone...  And for some reason...   I feel like itís up to me to
        protect her.

E.  Trick or Treat
- - - - - - - - - -

*While James and Maria are taking the elevator down to the second floor the
sound of a microphone screeching begins coming from Jamesí radio.  Gradually
the reception of the radio becomes better and an audience is heard cheering
followed by an announcerís voice.*

Announcer:  Hi there everybody, thanks for tuning in.  Welcome to another
            exciting edition of ďTrick or TreatĒ!

*The audience is heard cheering.*

Announcer:  Here you either answer the questions correctly and win a great
            prize, or fail to answer correctly and receive the punishment.
            It all depends on you.  And our lucky, or should I say unlucky,
            challenger today is James!  James Sunderland!  Are you ready to
            play ďTrick or TreatĒ?

            Okay, hereís your first question.  Merry-Go-Round, haunted house,
            roller coaster, ferris wheel and tea cups.  Silent Hill is home
            to a thrilling amusement park that both children and adults love.
            The question is:  What is the name of this amusement park?

            One, Fantasy Land.
            Two, Silent Hill Amusement Park.
            Three, Lakeside Amusement Park.

            Okay, quickly on to question number two.  Silent Hill witnessed a
            gruesome murder a few years back.  A brother and sister were
            playing in the road when they were attacked and chopped into
            pieces with an axe.  Torn flesh, smashed bones, splattered blood,
            and finally...  What a terrible tragedy.  What a gruesome end to
            such innocent lives.
            What was the name of the murderer who committed this vile act?

            One, Walter Sullivan
            Two, Scott Fairbanks
            Three, Eric Gein

            Now for our third and final question.  South of the lake is a
            deserted old neighborhood called South Vale.  From there to
            Paleville, the central resort area northwest of the lake, thereís
            only one road you can take.  Just one road, no more.
            The third and final question is:  What is the name of that road?

            One, Bachman Road
            Two, Rendell Street
            Three, Nathan Avenue

            Well, thatís the last of our questions.  Have you got it all
            figured out?  When you know the answers, head to the storeroom on
            the 3rd floor to collect your prizes!  But be careful.  If youíre

*The announcer laughs.*

Announcer:  Well then everybody, thanks for tuning in.  See you again
            sometime.  Bye bye!

*Audience is heard cheering and the radio begins to die out until it is
silent again.*

Maria:  What was that?

F. Ring in Refrigerator
- - - - - - - - - - - -

*James and Maria make their way to the second floor Day Room.  Near the
middle of the room is an old, metal refrigerator lying on its back.*

James:  Thereís something that looks like a refrigerator.

*The player is then given the option of whether or not to open the
refrigerator.  If the player chooses to open it the following dialogue takes

*James struggles to open the refrigerator grunting and pulling the handle
with both of his arms.*

Maria:  You canít open it?

James:  Yeah... Maria, gimme a hand here.

Maria:  Come on...  Youíre supposed to be the big man around here...
        Howís a little girl like me supposed to help?

*Maria walks over to the refrigerator and both she and James pull on the
handle.  The refrigerator opens after only a couple of pulls.  Maria reaches
in the refrigerator and pulls out a small ring.*

Maria:  Whatís this?  Not very cute, is it?

*Maria hands the ring to James.*

Maria:  Here James, you take it.

James:  Thanks.

G.  The Long Hallway
- - - - - - - - - - -

*James and Maria eventually find there way to another room in the basement.
They are walking down a long hallway when suddenly Pyramid Head appears
behind Maria.  They run down the long corridor until James reaches the
elevator.  However, the elevator doors quickly begin to close after him and
Maria is only able to fit her hand through the small gap in the doors.  James
begins pulling on the doors attempting to open them.*

James:  Open up!

*James attempts to open the doors by pushing some of the buttons on the panel
within the elevator, but none of them work.  Maria screams ďJamesĒ a couple
of times.*

James:  No!!

Maria:  James!

*Suddenly a large impact is heard from outside of the elevator where Maria is
standing.  Mariaís hand goes limp and falls back from the gap between the

James:  Maria!

*The elevator doors close.*

H. On the Hospital Steps
- - - - - - - - - - - - -

*James walks through the hospital entrance onto the front steps.*

James:  Mariaís dead.  I couldnít protect her.  Once again, I couldnít do
        anything to help.  Laura has run off somewhere.  Mary...  What...
        What should I do?  Are you... really waiting somewhere for me?  Or is
        this your way of taking...  Iím going to find Mary.....
        Itís the only thing I have left to hope for.

A. Cafeteria Conversation with Eddie
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

*After finding his way to the Silent Hill Historical Society, James ends up
jumping down several holes in order to continue his journey.  The second hole
he jumps down leads him into a prison cafeteria where the following dialogue
with Eddie takes place.*

*James looks around the room and he eventually shines his light on Eddie.
Eddie is sitting on the cafeteria floor holding a gun.*

Eddie:  Killiní a person ainít no big deal.  Just put the gun to their

*A dead body is shown slumped over a table next to where Eddie is sitting.*

James:  You... you killed him?

Eddie:  B,but... it wasnít my fault.  He, he made me do it!

James:  Calm down, Eddie.  Tell me what happened.

Eddie:  That guy... he, he had it coming!  I didnít do anything.  He just
        came after me!  Besides he was making fun of me with his eyes!  Like
        that other one...

James:  Just for that you killed him?

Eddie:  Whadda ya mean ĎJust for thatí!

James:  Eddie, you canít just kill someone cause of the way they looked at

Eddie:  Oh yeah!  Why not?  Til now I always let people walk all over me.
        Just like that stupid dog.  He had it coming too!!

James:  Eddie!!

Eddie:  He he.  I was just jokiní, James.  He was dead when I got here.
        Honest.  Anyway, I gotta run.

James:  Youíre going out there alone?

Eddie:  Yeah.

James:  Eddie...

*Eddie then walks out of the cafeteria.*

B. James Finds Maria
- - - - - - - - - - -

*After wandering through the beginning of the labyrinth, James finds Maria
sitting in a room.  She looks to be unhurt and is casually sitting with her
hands in her lap.  The room is divided by a set of prison bars with Maria
being on one side and James on the other.*

James:  Youíre alive!  Maria...!  I thought that thing killed you...!  Are
        you hurt bad?

Maria:  Not at all, silly.

James:  ...Maria?  That thing... it stabbed you.  There was blood everywhere.

Maria:  Stabbed me?  What do you mean?

James:  It chased us to the elevator.  And then...

Maria:  James, what are you talking about?

James:  Just before!  Donít you remember?

Maria:  James honey... Did something happen to you?  After we got separated
        in that long hallway?  Are you confusing me with someone else?
        *laughs*  You were always so forgetful...  Remember that time in the

James:  Maria...?

Maria:  You said you took everything... But you forgot that videotape we
        made.  I wonder if itís still there...

James:  How do you know about that!  Arenít you Maria?

Maria:  Iím not your Mary.

James:  So youíre Maria?

Maria:  I am... if you want me to be.

*James stands up.*

James:  All I want from you is an answer!

*Maria stands up and moves closer to the bars.*

Maria:  It doesnít matter who I am... Iím here for you, James.

*Maria reaches through the bars and puts her hand on Jamesí face.*

Maria:  See?  Iím real.  Donít you want to touch me?

James:  I donít know....

Maria:  Come and get me.  I canít do anything through these bars.

James:  Okay... stay right there.  Iíll be there soon.

C. Angelaís Father
- - - - - - - - - -

*James makes his way through the labyrinth below the Historical Society.  He
begins walking down a hallway which has newspapers scattered all over the
floor and stuck to the walls when he suddenly hears Angela yelling.*

Angela:  No daddy!  Please!  Donít!

*James walks into the room he heard Angela yelling from.  In the room he
finds Angela sitting on the floor and a strange looking monster standing near
her.  James shoots the monster until it lays motionless on the ground and
then walks over to Angela.*

James:  Are you okay?

*Angela moans and then stands up and begins repeatedly kicking the monster.
The monster growls.  After this she picks up a television that is sitting in
the room and drops it on the monster.*

James:  Angela!  Relax!

Angela:  Donít order me around!

James:  Iím not trying to order you.

Angela:  So what do you want then?  Oh I see, youíre trying to be nice to me,
         right?  I know what youíre up to.  Itís always the same.  Youíre
         only after one thing.

James:  No, thatís not true at all.

Angela:  You donít have to lie.  Go ahead and say it.  Or you could just
         force me.  Beat me up like he always did.

*Angela begins to kneel on the ground.*

Angela:  You only care about yourself anyway.

*Angela is crying and begins having dry heaves.*

Angela:  You disgusting pig.

James:  Angela...

*James puts his hand on Angelaís shoulder.*

Angela:  Donít touch me!! You make me sick!

*Angela stands up and gains her composure once again.*

Angela:  You said your wife Mary was dead, right?

James:  Yes, she was ill...

Angela:  Liar!  I know about you....  You didnít want her around anymore.
         You probably found someone else.

*Angela walks out into the hallway shutting the door behind her as she

James:  Thatís ridiculous... I never...

D. Jamesí Grisly Discovery
- - - - - - - - - - - - - -

*James finds his way through the labyrinth and eventually into the other side
of the room that he spoke to Maria in earlier.  When James walks in Maria is
laying on the bed.*

James:  Maria?

*James begins to walk closer to the bed.  There is some blood shown on the
bed near Mariaís arm.*

James:  Maria...?  Maria, no...   What happened to you?  Why... why...

*The camera pans up Mariaís body from her feet and shows a large blood stain
on the bed as it progresses up.  Eventually Mariaís face is shown.  The left
side of her face has been smashed in and is quite bloody.  James sits down
next to Mariaís body, rests his elbows on the bed, and puts his hands over
his face.*

James:  Mary...

*James leaves the room.*

+If you try to enter the room again once James has exited it the following
text is shown.+

James:  Thereís nothing else for me in this room...

E. Final Meeting with Eddie
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

*James continues his journey through the labyrinth and comes to a small room
that looks to be some type of freezer.  Eddie is standing at one end of the
room holding a gun and there are several dead bodies lying on the ground
around him.*

James:  Eddie!  What are you doing?

Eddie:  What does it look like?  He always busted my balls.
        ďYou fat disgusting piece of shit!  You make me sick!Ē
        ďFat-ass, yer nothiní but a waste of skin.Ē
        ďYouíre so ugly, even youíre mama donít love you!Ē
        Well maybe he was right.  Maybe I am nothing but a fat, disgusting
        piece of shit.  But ya know what?  It doesnít matter if your smart,
        dumb, ugly, pretty...itís all the same once yer dead.  And a corpse
        canít laugh.  From now on, if anyone makes fun of me... Iíll kill em.
        Just like that.

*Eddie puts the gun to his head demonstrating the last statement he made.
Eddie then turns around and begins to walk out of the room.*

James:  Eddie, have you gone nuts?

*Eddie slowly turns around.*

Eddie:  I knew it.  You too.  Youíre just like Ďem, James.

James:  Hey I didnít mean anything.

Eddie:  Donít bother.  I understand.  Youíve been laughiní at me all along,
        havenít you?  Ever since we first met.  Iíll kill you, James.

*Eddie raises his gun up, points it at James, and shoots.  James dodges the
bullet.  James and Eddie then fight until Eddie flees into the next room.
After James follows Eddie into the next room the following dialogue takes

*James walks into some type of meat locker that has animal carcasses hanging
throughout the room.  Eddie begins speaking but James is unable to see
exactly where he is in the room.*

Eddie:  Do you know what it does to you, James?  When youíre hated, picked
        on, spit on, just cause of the way you look.  After youíve been
        laughed at your whole frigginí life.  Thatís why I ran away after I
        killed the dog.  Ran away like a scared little girl.  Yeah, I killed
        that dog.  It was fun.  It tried to chew its own guts out!  Finally
        died all curled up in a ball.  Then ďHeĒ came after me, I shot him
        too.  Right in the leg.  He cried more than the dog!

*James hears a loud bang and quickly turns around to see whatís behind him.
When he turns around nothing is there.*

Eddie:  Heís gonna have a hard time playing football on whatís left of that

James:  You think itís okay to kill people!  You need help, Eddie!

Eddie:  Donít get all holy on me, James.  This town called you, too.  You and
        me are the same.  Weíre not like other people.  Donít you know that?!

*Eddie finally walks out of his hiding place behind James.*

Eddie:  Letís party!

*Eddie and James then fight until Eddie falls to the ground.*

James:  Eddie?

*James walks over to Eddieís body and looks over it.*

James:  Eddie!  I... I killed a... a human being... A human being...
        Mary... Did you really die three years ago...?

A. The Dock
- - - - - - -

*James makes his way out of the Historical Society, across Toluca Lake by
rowboat, and docks by the Lakeside Hotel.  James gets out of the boat and
looks up at the hotel.*

James:  This place hasnít changed at all in three years...

- - - - - - - - - - - - -
B. Laura and the Letter
- - - - - - - - - - - - -

*James finds his way to the ďRestaurant Lake ShoreĒ in the hotel.  When James
begins to leave the room, a loud sound is heard from the piano.  James looks
over and Laura is hiding behind the piano hitting random keys.*

Laura:  Did I scare you?

James:  Yeah, you did.

*Laura jumps out from behind the piano, walks past James and sits down on a
chair near him.*

Laura:  Youíre here to find Mary, arenít you, James?  Well... have you?

James:  No... is that why youíre here, too?

Laura:  Sheís here, isnít she?  If you know where she is, tell me!  Iím tired
        of walking.

James:  I wish I knew...

Laura:  But she said it in her letter...

James:  What letter!?

*Laura stands up, reaches in her pocket, and pulls out a letter.  She extends
her arm out towards James.*

Laura:  ...Wanna read it?

*James walks over and takes the letter from Laura.*

Laura:  But donít tell Rachel, okay?

James:  Whoís Rachel?

Laura:  She was our nurse.  I took it from her locker.

*James reads the letter and the following text appears on the screen*

*My dearest Laura, Iím leaving this letter with Rachel to give to you after
Iím gone.  Iím far away now.  In a quiet beautiful place.  Please forgive me
for not saying goodbye before I left.  Be well, Laura.  Donít be too hard on
the sisters. And Laura, about James... I know you hate him because you think
he isnít nice to me, but please give him a chance.  Itís true he may be a
little surly sometimes, and he doesnít laugh much.  But underneath heís
really a sweet person.  Laura... I love you like my very own daughter.  If
things had worked out differently, I was hoping to adopt you.  Happy 8th
birthday, Laura.  Your friend forever, Mary*

*When James finishes reading the letter, Laura is drawing pictures on a
fogged up window leading out onto the restaurants porch.*

James:  Laura... How old are you?

Laura:  Um, I turned eight last week.

James:  So Mary couldnít have died... three years ago...  Could she really be
        here?  Is this the ďquiet, beautiful placeĒ she was talking about?

Laura:  Me and Mary talked a lot about Silent Hill.  She even showed me all
        her pictures.  She really wanted to come back.  Thatís why Iím here.
        Maybe youíll get it if you see the other letter...  The one Mary...

*Laura reaches in her pockets and canít find the other letter.*

Laura:  I must have dropped it!

James:  Laura...

Laura:  I gotta find it!

*Laura runs past James and out of the room.*

James:  Laura!

C. Room 312
- - - - - - -

*James eventually makes his way into room 312 where he plays the video that
he and Mary forgot in the hotel 3 years ago.  Once the video begins to play,
Mary is shown standing next to one of the windows in room 312.*

Mary:  Are you taping again?  Címon...

*Mary sits down in a chair next to the window and looks out.*

Mary:  I donít know why, but I just love it here.  Itís so peaceful.  You
       know what I heard?  This whole area used to be a sacred place.  I
       think I can see why.  Itís too bad we have to leave...  Please promise
       youíll take me again, James.

*Mary begins coughing.  The video starts to become gritty and it looks as
though the footage of Mary has been copied over some other footage.
Eventually a shaky picture of Mary is shown, lying in bed.  James walks up to
the bed and looks over her.  He leans over and seems to be talking to her,
although there is no audio.  Suddenly James reaches for the pillow behind
Maryís head.  The video footage then becomes very scrambled showing bits and
pieces of the footage in room 312 as well as some other very grainy footage
of James at Maryís bedside.  The grainy footage seems to show James
smothering Mary, although it is so unclear it is hard to tell.  Eventually
the video footage ends and there is only static shown on the television.
James is then shown sitting in a seat in front of the television with his
head down.  James says Maryís name (although, it is not captioned).  He stays
in this position for quite a while until Laura walks into the room.  She
walks between James and the television and then stands there and begins
talking to James.

Laura:  So there you are, James.  Did you get the letter?  Did you find Mary?
        If not, letís get going already.

*Laura pushes Jamesí shoulders.*

Laura:  Okay?

*James looks up.*

James:  Maryís gone.  Sheís dead.

Laura:  Liar!  Thatís a lie!

James:  No, thatís not true...

Laura:  She... she died Ďcause she was sick?

James:  No.  I killed her.

*Laura waits a while before responding.*

Laura:  You killer!  Whyíd you do it?!  I hate you!!  I want her back!  Give
        her back to me!

*Laura pushes Jamesí shoulder.*

Laura:  I knew it!  You didnít care about her!  I hate you, James!

*Laura hits Jamesí shoulder several times.*

Laura:  I hate you!  I hate you!  I hate you!
        She was always waiting for you... why... why...

*James shakes his head back and forth while looking down.*

James:  Iím sorry...

*James stands up.*

James:  They Mary you know isnít here.

*Laura walks out of the room.*

James:  Laura, Iím sorry.

*James slumps back down in the chair.  Suddenly, Maryís voice can be heard
over the radio, although it is quite staticy.*

Mary:  James.  Where are you?  Iím waiting.  Iím waiting for you.  Please
       come to me.

*James stands up.*

Mary:  Do you hate me?  Is that why you wonít come?

James:  That voice...

Mary:  Please hurry.  Are you lost?  Iím near.  Iím waiting nearby, James.
       Please.  I want to see you, James.  Canít you hear me?  James...
       Please, James...  James...  James...  James...

*The radio finally dies out.*

D. Final Meeting with Angela
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

*James makes his way through a door to a room where there should be a metal
staircase, but when he walks in there is a wooden, carpeted staircase and the
whole room is on fire.  Angela is standing on the staircase looking at a
strange picture on the wall.  James walks up the staircase to talk to Angela.
Angela turns around and faces James.*

Angela:  Mama!  Mama, I was looking for you.

*Angela walks towards James, while James backs away from her.*

Angela:  Now youíre the only one left.  Maybe then....  Maybe then I can

*James continues to back away from Angela.*

Angela:  Mama, why are you running away?

*Angela puts her hands on Jamesí face, then on his shoulders, and then back
on his face.  She examines his face closely and then backs away.*

Angela:  Youíre not Mama.  Itís you...  I, Iím sorry...

James:  Angela, no....

Angela:  Thank you for saving me...  But I wish you hadnít.  Even Mama said
         it...  I deserved what happened...

James:  No Angela, thatís wrong!

Angela:  No.  Donít pity me.  Iím not worth it....

*The tone of Angelaís voice suddenly changes.*

Angela:  Or maybe you think you can save me?  Will you love me?  Take care of
         me?  Heal all my pain?

*James doesnít respond.*

Angela:  Thatís what I thought.  James.  Give me back that knife.

*Angela reaches her hand out towards James.*

James:  No... I, I wonít.

Angela:  Saving it for yourself?

*Angela begins to walk up the fiery staircase.*

James:  Me?  No...  Iíd never kill myself....
        Itís hot as hell in here.

Angela:  You see it too?  For me, itís always like this.

E. Final Fight with the Pyramid Heads
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

*James walks into the middle of a strange room and then hears Mariaís voice
calling out to him.*

Maria:  James!

*When he looks up he sees Maria and two Pyramid Heads on top of a platform.
Maria is being held upside down in some type of metal contraption and there
is a Pyramid Head on either side of her.*

James:  Stop!  Leave her alone!  Leave us both the hell alone!

*One of the Pyramid Heads rams a spear through Mariaís back, presumably
killing her.  After seeing this, James drops to his knees.*

James:  I was weak.  Thatís why I needed you....  Needed someone to punish me
        for my sins....  But thatís all over now....  I know the truth....
        Now itís time to end this.

*James then fights both the Pyramid Heads.*

F. Recording (optional)
- - - - - - - - - - - -

*If James makes his way to the Reading Room in the alternate hotel there is a
set of headphones on a desk by the window.  If he decides to listen to them
the following dialogue is heard.*

James:  Maryís going to die...?  You... you must be joking...

*Suddenly the camera zooms out the window and to show a bed floating in the
air.  This serves as the backdrop to the entire recorded conversation.*

Doctor:  Iím very sorry.

James:  But youíre a doctor.  Itís your job to heal people!  How can you just
        let her die!

Doctor:  Please calm down. As her doctor, I promise Iíll do what I can.
         But... thereís still no effective treatment for her condition.

James:  How long does she have?

Doctor:  Iím afraid Iím not sure.  3 years at most....  Perhaps 6 months...
         Itís impossible to say with certainty.

G. Hallway Conversation (optional)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

*James makes his way to a long hallway where he hears a conversation that he
and Mary must have had while Mary was still alive.  A player can exit the
hallway before the conversation is over.*

*James says Maryís name (it is not captioned).*

Mary:  What do you want, James?

James:  I, uh I brought you some flowers...

Mary:  Flowers?  I donít want any damn flowers.  Just go home already.

James:  Mary, what are you saying?

Mary:  Look!  Iím disgusting!  I donít deserve flowers.  Between the disease
       and the drugs, I look like a monster.  Well what are you looking at?
       Get the hell out of here.  Leave me alone already!  Iím no use to
       anyone.  Iíll be dead soon anyway.  Maybe today, maybe tomorrow....
       Itís be easier if theyíd just kill me.  But I guess the hospital is
       making a nice profit off me, they want to keep me alive....  Are you
       still here?  I told you to go!  Are you deaf?!  Donít come back!

*Mary pauses for a moment.*

Mary:  James....  Wait....  Please donít go....  Stay with me.  Donít leave
       me alone.  I didnít mean what I said.  Please James....  Tell me Iíll
       be okay.  Tell me Iím not going to die.  Help me...

A. ďLeaveĒ Ending
- - - - - - - - - -

*After climbing a long set of metal stairs, James finds his way into a
strange room with no ceiling and a metal floor.  There is a bed sitting near
the middle of the room.  A woman who looks like Mary is looking out the
window.  James walks up to the woman at the window.*

James:  Mary!

*The woman turns around and she and James look at each other for a short

Maria:  When will you ever stop making that mistake!  Maryís dead.  You
        killed her.

Maria:  What?  You must be joking!  But I can be yours...  Iíll be here for
        you forever.

*Maria walks towards James.*

Maria:  And Iíll never yell at you or make you feel bad.  Thatís what you
        wanted.  Iím different than Mary...  How can you throw me away?

James:  I understand now.  Itís time to end this nightmare.

Maria:  No!  I wonít let you!  You deserve to die too, James.

*Maria then transforms into the final boss and she and James fight.  After

bed in what is probably their home.*

James:  Mary..

*Mary coughs a couple of times.*

Mary:  James...

James:  Forgive me...

Mary:  I told you that I wanted to die, James.  I wanted the pain to end.

James:  Thatís why I did it, honey.  I just couldnít watch you suffer.
        No!  Thatís not true...  You also said that you didnít want to die.
        The truth is I hated you.  I wanted you out of the way.  I wanted my
        life back....

Mary:  James... if that were true, then why do you look so sad?

James:  Mary...

Mary:  James...  Please... please do something for me.

*Mary reaches at her side and grabs a letter and then hands it to James.*

Mary:  Go on with your life.

*The scene switches to a foggy grave yard and Mary begins to read her letter
to James.  To see what the letter says skip down to the ďD. The LetterĒ
portion of this document.  After the letter has been read James and Laura are
seen walking through the graveyard together.  After this, the scene fades to

        forever.  And Iíll never yell at you or make you feel bad.

*Maria puts her hand up towards Jamesí face, but he pulls away.*

James:  Thatís why I did it honey.  I just couldnít watch you suffer.

James:  No, thatís not the whole truth.  You also said that you didnít want
        to die.  The truth is... part of me hated you.  For taking away my

Mary:  James, Iíve been waiting.

James:  Mary...  Iím sorry it took so long.

Mary:  Didnít you want to see me?

James:  Yes, I wanted to see you.  Even an illusion of you....  Thatís why I
        came here.

Mary:  Thatís not true, is it?  You killed me...

James:  I couldnít watch you suffer.

Mary:  Donít make excuses, James.  I know I was a burden on you.  You must
       have hated me.  Thatís why you got rid of me.

James:  Itís true... I may have had some of those feelings.  It was a long
        three years... I was... tired.

Mary:  And thatís why you needed this ďMariaĒ person?

*Mary gets off the bed and stands up next to James.*

Mary:  James, do you really think I could ever forgive you for what you did?

D. The Letter
- - - - - - - -


In my restless dreams,
I see that town.

Silent Hill.

You promised youíd take me
there again someday.
But you never did.

Well Iím alone there now...

In our ďspecial placeĒ
Waiting for you...

Waiting for you to
come to see me.

But you never do.

And so I wait, wrapped in my
cocoon of pain and loneliness.

I know Iíve done a terrible
thing to you.  Something youíll
never forgive me for.

I wish I could change
that, but I canít.

I feel so pathetic and ugly
laying here, waiting for you...

Every day I stare up at the cracks
in the ceiling and all I can think
about is how unfair it all is...

The doctor came today.
He told me I could go
home for a short stay.

Itís not that Iím getting better.
Itís just that this may be
my last chance...

I think you know what I mean...

Even so, Iím glad to be coming
home.  Iíve missed you terribly.

But Iím afraid James.
Iím afraid you donít really
want me to come home.

Whenever you come see me,
I can tell how hard it is on you...

I donít know if you
hate me or pity me...
Or maybe I just disgust you....

Iím sorry about that.

When I first learned that
I was going to die, I just
didnít want to accept it.

I was so angry all the time and I
struck out at everyone I loved most.
Especially you, James.

Thatís why I understand
if you do hate me.

But I want you to
know this, James.

Iíll always love you.

Even though our life together had
to end like this, I still wouldnít
trade it for the world.  We had
some wonderful years together.

Well this letter has gone on
too long so Iíll say goodbye.

I told the nurse to give
this to you after Iím gone.

That means that as you read this,
Iím already dead.

I canít tell you to remember me,
but I canít bear for you to
forget me.

These last few years since I
became ill...Iím so sorry for
what I did to you, did to us...

Youíve given me so much and
I havenít bee able to return
a single thing.

Thatís why I want you to live
for yourself now.
Do whatís best for you, James.


You made me happy.

*If you complete the game at least once and then collect all 4 of the special
items you will receive this ending.*

*After climbing a long set of metal stairs, James finds his way into a
strange room with no ceiling and a metal floor.  There is a bed sitting near
the middle of the room.  A woman who looks like Mary is looking out the
window.  James walks up to the woman at the window.*

Maria:  James.

James:  Maria.  Iím finished with you.

Maria:  What!?  But Iím what you wanted!  Maryís dead.  Donít you understand?
        Sheís not coming back!  But I can be yours...  Iíll be here for you
        forever.  Iíll never hurt you like she did!  So why donít you want

James:  Because your not Mary.  Without Mary, I just canít go on.

Maria:  James.  Címon James.  You must be joking.

*Maria then transforms into the final boss and she and James fight.  After
James has caused enough damage to her, she falls to the ground, but is still
alive.  Maria will repeat Jamesí name over and over again until she is
finally killed by one last blow.*

*After Maria has been killed the scene changes to James rowing the boat he
used earlier.*

James:  Mary.  You look so peaceful.  Forgive me for waking you.  But without
        you, I just canít go on.  I canít live without you, Mary.  This town,
        Silent Hill....  The Old Gods havenít left this place....  And they
        still grant power to those who venerate them....  Power to defy even

*The camera shows James reaching a small island.  There is a dock at the
island and also what looks to be a small house.*

James:  Ah...  Mary.

F. ďDogĒ Ending

*This ending becomes available once a player has completed the game and least
once as well as received the ďRebirthĒ ending or if they have received the
ďLeaveĒ, ďIn WaterĒ, and ďMariaĒ endings.  If James gets the dog key and uses
it to enter the observation room in the alternate hotel the following takes

*James opens the door and the room is shown.  It is a brightly lit and very
colorful room.  There are several computerized devices throughout the room
and at the back end of the room there is what looks to be a control panel.
There is a dog at the control panel with a headset on pulling various levers
back and forth.  Also at the control panel, there is a monitor with pictures
of James and Maria shown on it.  After looking over the room, James says ďSo
it was you all alongĒ in Japanese and then drops to his knees.  After this
the dog comes over to James and starts licking his face, then the credits
roll (which are the best part in my opinion).*
