After Wooly reveals his allergy to apples, Amanda encourages him to try something new. Amanda then asks the player where the store is. (If the player clicks on anything other than the store, she will repeat her question. Clicking on the wrong place twice results in the screen going static, removing the house and swing set. Amanda becomes annoyed and says, « You know where the store is. ») After clicking on the store, Amanda and Wooly enter. Amanda informs the player about the presence of apples and asks them to say « apple. » (If the player types the wrong word, she repeats herself.

(As usual, she repeats if the wrong answer is typed.

Typing « Lamb » gives access to the secret tape.
Episode 3: When the player inserts the third tape labeled « EPISODE 3, » they are greeted by Amanda alone. She says, « It’s dark out, let’s go home. » (Clicking on the swing set makes her point at the house and say, « home. » Clicking on the swing set a second time removes it, causing Amanda to have small pupils and say in a desperate tone, « Click the house! ») After clicking on the house, Amanda appears right next to the door, maintaining her desperate expression and saying, « Knock on the door! » (Clicking on the window makes her angry and she says, « I want to [gets caught in static] go inside. » Clicking wrong again removes the window, and Amanda says, « Let me i-i-i-i-in ».) After clicking on the door, the player hears someone knocking on their own door, and Amanda starts to twist and distort herself while her eyes turn completely white.
