Recommended Strategy

Below is the recommended strategy for seeing almost all the dialogue available, including rarer pieces, like conversations that are only available for a short time or discussions with Erica if you get drinks at the table instead of the bar. It takes advantage of the fact that time does not pass when you speak to someone standing up.

Indicates a conversation that has a Karma choice.
Indicates an action that is necessary for obtaining an achievement.

The following activities have no impact on time, and can be done anytime, as much as you want: Access the ATM, watch TV, play Rapunzel, and wash your face in the bathroom.
