1) What It Is, Fool?

This is a compilation of Resetti's scripts, what he says to you when you Reset
the game.  Dastardly resetting is, sadly, the only way to really get a taste
of this fine character.  Full of lively animations and funny sounds, everyone
should Reset once to see him.  Resetti's the bestest.

This document is FINAL version barring errors that will need correction.

2) What Qualifies as a RESET:

	1) Pressing the RESET button. (Duh.)
	2) Turning off the POWER.
	3) Unplugging the GameCube's power cord.
	4) Power Outage

3) Why Not Reset?

The final answer: Deliberately Resetting the Game circumvents the intent of 
gameplay mechanics and is therefore cheating.

This issue is more of gameplay ethics than gameplay mechanics.  There are no 
apparent mechanical consequences to Resetting, though the consequences may be 
more hidden (like a lower "Luck" rating) or they may take an excessive number
of resets to manifest.

In all probability, there are no Mechanical consequences, since it would have
been unfair to those players who had a power outage, accidentally reset the 
game, or victims of mean, reset-happy siblings to be truly penalized.  I 
would not advise taking advantage of this good will.

In the end, Reset at your Own Risk.

Now, on to the Resets...

(Mr. Resetti enters as you leave your home, popping out of the ground.)

Hello.  Um...allow me to introduce myself.  The name's Resetti.  Mr. Resetti.

Have we...met before?  At the...post office, perhaps?  Yeah, whatever.

Anyway, let me just say thanks for buying this game, Animal Crossing.

Um...on behalf of everyone at Nintendo, I...um...I...

What was the next part?  Huh?  Aw, forget it!  That's enough!

Let's get down to business, whaddaya say?  Because you may not know it, but you
and I got issues to discuss.

First, let me just tell you what it is I'm doin' here.  Just so there are no 
misunderstandings later on.

You, my friend, reset your game, didn't you?  Huh?  Maybe on accident, maybe on
purpose, but you pressed it.

Or maybe you didn't, huh?  Maybe you just went and turned the power off without
saving.  Sound familiar?

What?  Sorry, what was that?  I didn't catch that last bit.  Did you just say 
I'm right?  You did what I said you did?


All right, you listen and listen good, 'cause I get real angry when I gotta 
repeat stuff I gotta say.

Resetting... It's like pressing an emergency call button.  You press it and I 
gotta come read you the riot act.  See?

Also, you gotta SAVE before you turn the power off.  If you don't save, it's 
the same as resetting.

Well, OK... That last part?  I just added that.  Why?  Because I wanted to.

Forget about other games for a minute, will ya?

I'm here to suggest that you try and play THIS game, Animal Crossing, without 
hitting RESET.  Got it?

I know what you're thinking: "Whether I hit RESET or not should be up to me.  
After all, it's MY Nintendo GameCube!"

Well, sorry.  Rules are rules, OK?  Know what I'm sayin'?  Let's not make a big
deal out of this.  End of discussion.

This bein' our first meeting, I'm gonna let you off easy.  Think of this as a 
friendly warning from me to you.

Oh, one more thing.  This is my job.  I take it seriously.  So next time you 
see me, it's no more Mr. Nice Mole.

Oh, yeah, and another thing I guess I gotta say here...

I really watched my... language...here today.  I'm not usually quite so... you 
know, so polite.

If I'm bein' truthful here, I gotta tell you... I been told I got what you 
call an acid tongue.  I sorta...scare people.

Hey, that's...who I am.  Nothin' I can do about it.  What, I'm supposed to say 
sorry for bein' me?

Look, it's nothin' personal.  I ain't tryin' to be mean or cruel or nothin'.  
I ain't a monster.

For those people who get their feelin's bruised easily, I gotta apologize in 
advance.  Just deal with it, OK?

The deal is, I get paid to be nasty.  Crazy world, huh?  Ha ha ha ha ha!!!

Well, I figure it's about time for me to get outta here.

So, uh... Yeah.  Here's hoping I don't have to come see you no more.  Now...

(Mr. Resetti enters as you leave your home, popping out of the ground.)

Oh, here we go.  You again, huh?  I shoulda known...

I had a feeling about you.  After all, wanting to do what you're told NOT to do
is HUMAN nature.

Listen you get this whole reset thing started, and you'll NEVER stop.  I seen 
it a million times.

You think this is a game?  Well, OK...it is a game.  But games got rules, and 
rules got consequences.

Somethin' funny to you?  What am I doin' over here, stand-up?  You see an 
APPLAUSE sign up in here?

Look, don't make me come back here again.  I'm serious.  It ain't like I enjoy 
these little field trips.

Next time you see me, I'm gonna be wearing my angry hat.  And lemme tell you, 
it's one ugly hat.

Trust me on this one.  When I get my motor goin', you'll be here a while.  
Don't reset again!  Now...

So where you goin'?  Huh?  Lemme ask you something.  What did you just do?  
Yeah, I'm talkin to you!

What do I mean?  What do I mean?

You tryin' to be FUNNY?

Resetting!  I'm talkin' about YOU resetting the game!

Listen to me, Melvin.  You think you can fool me?  You're foolin' yourself.  It 
ain't gonna happen.

See, it's like this, all right?  Whenever you reset, there's this light in the 
Reset Center that starts flashin'...

It's so bright it hurts my brain!

Now, don't get me wrong.  I understand that you PEOPLE make mistakes.  It's 
genetic or somethin'.

Who knows?  Maybe your finger slipped.  I don't know and I don't care.  What I 
DO want is for you to do me a favor.

Yeah, do me a favor and answer this one question.  Pray tell, is there a RESET 
Button in your world?

There isn't, is there?


Of course not.  That would be stupid.

Not being able to do things over again?  That's...called life, and you best get
used to it.

What?  What was that?  "It's just a game"?  "Don't make such a big deal out of 

THAT's what I'm talkin' about!

Your attitude!  It STINKS!

"It's just a game.  Waaah!"  What is that?  I'll tell you what it is.  It's 
pathetic.  You oughta be ashamed.

Huh?  What's that?  Speak up, you reset-happy cheater!  You tellin' me you 
never said that at all?

Hmph.  All right.  Maybe I had some dirt in my ears.  Forget about it.  Let's 
move on.

Lemme just give you some examples of what I'm talkin' about, OK?  And make sure

Resetting over and over just to find an item or to erase an unfortunate 
incident...?  Sound familiar?

Melvin, this is just the kind of juvenile and disgustin' style of gameplay that 
we want you to avoid.

Where's the satisfaction in cheatin' through life?  Take everythin' as it 
comes.  In its own time.  Enjoy it all.

That's noble.  That's graceful.  And it's a whole lot easier to do in this game
than it is in real life, lemme tell you!


I bet you're askin' yourself, "How much longer is this guy gonna go on?"  You 
are, aren't you?  Huh?

Ahhh, whatever.  Attention span of a flea, that's what you got.  All this 
jawin' tired me out, anyway.

I'm gonna let you go for now, anyway.

BUT you gotta promise me: no more.  I'm serious here.  Resetting is completely 

Oh, yeah, and one last thing:

Take a bath!

You got it?  Now...

(Mr. Resetti is already outside, waiting for you.)

Hey, you!  Hold up a minute!  Who?  You!  You you YOU!!!

Don't pretend you don't know who I'm talkin' to, Melvin!  You ain't foolin' 

Get your tail over here!

(Mr. Resetti then waits for you to go over to him.)

[If you try to leave, though....]

Hey!  Hey!!!  Where do you think you're goin' you little twerp?  I SAID get 
over here!

[....so you must eventually go talk with him.]

You're a real piece of work, you know that?

You think I was Blathers or the mayor or somethin'?  When I call you, I expect 
you to move.  And I mean MOVE!

...Um, what was that?  That look you just gave me.  What, may I ask, was that?

Are you testin' me?  You don't wanna do that!  I'm warnin' you!  You'll rue the
day you moved here!

And don't gimme that crybaby what-did-I-do? look either!  It ain't gonna fly!!!
Not with THIS mole!!!

RESET REST RESET!  You just had to do it again, didn't you?

After all the kindness I been showin' you... You go and stab me in the back.
What would your mother say?

You were gonna go and do it again, weren't you?  Just now!  Your finger was 
creepin' over to reset!

STOP!  Just give it a rest, will ya?  That's not gonna help you outta this jam.
I'll just keep comin' back!

And stop wigglin' around like you gotta go potty!  You're drivin' me nuts!
Just stand there and listen!

I'm wastin' my breath here, ain't I?  I mean, look at you.  You... You just 
don't listen.

Is there somethin' about this you maybe don't understand?  Or is it just that 
you don't care at all?  Is that it?

Listen, Melvin.  I COULD stop and leave it to you how to play.  But where would
that get us?  Nowhere.

How 'bout playin' a fantasy without any epic battles, no fightin' against the
odds to save some magical realm?

Wouldn't it be nice to just lay down your sword, pick a few daisies, and just

See my point?  That ain't life.  And this ain't a fantasy.  I'm just askin'
that you enjoy life here, and all of its...


Look at me when I'm talkin' to you!

If you hadn't reset in the first place...

...you wouldn't be here getting your tail chewed off!  OK, you ain't got a 
tail, but it's still your own fault.


You know, comin' out here's no picnic for me, either.  It really wears a mole 
out.  You think I'm jokin'?

Look at that tunnel, will ya?  I have to dig one of those each and every time 
you reset!  I'm only one mole!

So how about you and I stop wastin' each other's time?  Whaddaya say?

NO MORE RESETTING!  All right?  We got an understanding?

[Mr. Resetti awaits an answer ... Got it! or No Way!]

[No way!]

WHAT?!?  AARGH!!!  You mockin' me?

If that's how you wanna be, then you just earned yourself the chance to hear me
again from the beginnin'!

Yeah, you ain't laughin' now!  You don't like that idea all that much, do ya, 
twerp?  Well, I don't like it either!

So how about you and I stop wastin' each other's time?  Whaddaya say?

NO MORE RESETTING!  All right?  We got an understanding?

[Got it!]

Well, all right, then!  As long as we're square, I'm satisfied.

BUT, this is the last time!  So help me, if I gotta do this just one more time,
there's gonna be bad trouble.

Oh, and before I forget, there's one last thing:

Your hair!  Wash it!!!

We clear?  Now...

(Don Resetti enters as you leave your home, popping out of the ground.)

What... What's the deal with that thunder?!  That really startled me bad!  

Oh, umm, anyway, I oughta say it's nice to meet you!  I'm Resetti's older 
brother.  My name's Don.

Yeah, my brother Sonny can be a real headcase.  Thanks for puttin' up with his,
uh...quirks.  Yeah. quirks.

So, Sonny had an urgent errand that he just couldn't pull himself away from.
The guys' like a mole dynamo. 
(Note: Apostrophe misplacement is in the game; reproduced faithfully here.)

So I came in his place.  Thanks for openin' up time in your busy schedule to 
have a little talk with me.

So anyway, if I might begin at the beginnin'...

It seems that our Sonny's been goin' off the deep end once again.  He's been
poppin' up all over the place.

You know, yellin' at people, gettin' right in their faces, and causin' havor.
On behalf of the family, I apologize.

I know I'm his brother, but I'm sincere when I say that despite his uh...
outburst...he's, uh...he's a good kid.

He's a bit enthusiastic, and, uh...kinda overbearin'.  You could even say he's 
pig-headed.  Mole-headed?

Either way, his social skills are real, real unpolished, and his choice of 
language is, shall we say, questionable.

But...don't forget his heart!  It's in the right place!  Trust me, there ain't 
an evil bone in his body.

So, uh, just let him have his little say, and shrug it off.  Don't hold it 
against him.  He don't get out much.

Oh, yeah.  Right.  Business.  I guess I gotta take care of a little business, 
right?  I don't wanna get yelled at...

OK, here goes nothin'.  Do re mi... Ahem...

Ummm... Resettin' is no good!  Don't do it, Melvin!

The Resettis suggest givin' up your resettin' ways... For health reasons.
Got it?

...Hmmm...guess that should cover it.  About time for me to make tunnels.
See ya around.  And good luck.  Now...

ground, waving his pick angrily, and yells...)


Think you're gettin' away with that?

You got another think comin'!

Stop resetting!  Hear me?

What don't you get???


All that screamin' at you...everythin' went all black... You see what you're 
don' to me?  To my health?  Huh?

You know, you're the only one who pushes it this far.  The only one who fails 
to understand.  ONLY YOU!

You listenin' to me?  'Cause it looks to me like I gotta go through this whole 
song and dance again.

When the Reset Alarm sounds, somebody's gotta just drop everythin' and 
investigate.  And that somebody's ME!

Yeah.  I know.  It's my job, and I gotta deal with it.  I ain't lookin' for 
sympathy!  But for cryin' out loud...

It don't matter if I'm eatin', takin' a hot mud bath, readin' Mole Monthly, or 
catchin' some z's...

When that alarm goes off, I gotta stop what I'm doin' and start dinnin' like it
was National Diggin' Day!

I know you can't see it from up there, but I'm only wearin' one sock!  One!  
Who lives like this?

This job ain't glamorous, lemme tell ya.

...Hey... You laughin' at me?  You CAN'T be laughin' at me!

I swear, just now, you're nose...it twitched!  Yeah!  I saw it!  Your ugly 
little pug nose!  It was twitchin' like mad!

OK.  That's how you want it?  The chickens are comin' home to roost now, ain't 

If that's how you wanna play, then that's how we'll play.

You know, I can see you forgettin' yourself and resettin' once...maybe twice.
It could happen, I guess.

But this time?  No two ways about it!  It was deliberate!  A calculated, 
cold-blooded act of villainy by a punk!

No more forgive-and-forget Resetti for you, pal.  Oh, no.  Until you show me 
some real regret, I ain't leavin'!

All right...what to do?  They don't exactly cover hoodlums like you in the 
reset-prevention manual.

Askin' "You got that?" ain't workin'.  All that gets me is lip service, and we 
both know what that's worth.

Got it!  Yeah.  That's good.  OK, listen up, troublemaker.  Here's what we're 
gonna do.

No more of your worthless, I'm-sorry-Mr.-Resetti garbage.  Now you're gonna 
have to say EXACTLY what I tell you to!

You screw it up, you do it again!  Let's see... Yeah, that'll work.

You ready?  Here goes...

Say "Yes, boss!"!
(Note: Other things come up instead of "Yes, boss!" like "I stink" and 
"I<3Resetti" where <3 is a Heart icon, and "Reset = [Death] where [Death] is 
the little Skull icon, et cetera.)

[Incorrect Input]


Nope!  No way, twerp!  Do it over!  Try again!

You ready?  Here goes...

Say "Yes, boss!"!

[Correct Input]

You're bein' sincere, right?  You really, truly, no-joke, 
cross-your-heart-and-hope-to-die mean it?  Well?  Do ya?  Punk?

That thing you just said?  Don't forget it!

Well, all right then!  As long as you and I are clear on that, I'm one happy, 
snappy mole.

But, for the love of dirt, no more!  It stops here!

Oh, yeah, one last thing.

Before you go to bed?  Brush those teeth, will ya?

easy on the poor human.

See, I understand you now.  It took a while, but I finally see what makes you 

Allow me to...elaborate, huh?  The whole RESET thing?  It's your decision, 

Yeah, freedom of choice and all that.  You're the master of your own destiny, 
and blah blah blah blah.

That's all fine with me.  I'm just tired of the drama.

You wanna hit RESET, right?  You love doing that, huh?  That's what you really 
wanna do?

Well, if that's what you're really lookin' for, lemme help you out.  Yeah, no 
problem!  I'll hit RESET for you.

Everythin' that you've done so far?  All that you've worked for?  Forget about 
it.  That's right.  It's all going bye-bye.

You, my button-happy friend, get to start over.

Well, see ya!

How you like them apples?

Did we break our controller?  Did we, maybe, kick our TV?  Gah ha ha ha ha!

I got your attention now, Melvin?  Huh?  Did I knock a little sense into you?  
All the lights on up there?

You keep goin' this way, and bad things may happen.  You don't wanna make me

Anyway, no more bein' stupid!  Stop with the reset business!  All right?  Are

[Answer: Got it! or No way!]

[No way!]

What?  Graahh!
You wisin' off?

You wanna play like that, and I'll reset the whole mess!  Everything...POOF!  
Gone!  Don't think I won't!

Is that what you want?  Huh?  That make you happy?  No, I didn't THINK so!  
Too much work for me, too!

Anyway, no more bein' stupid!  Stop with the reset business!  All right?  Are 
we clear?

That's what I wanna hear!  As long as we've got an understanding, we can wrap 
this up and put it to bed.

But I'm not even jokin' about this.  No more o this funny business, you hear

[Extreme Close-Up!]


......I never noticed before, but you got some real nice eyes.  Yeah, real 

Lemme tell you something, Melvin.  This ain't about you, personally, but more 
about the world in general.

People see somethin' they don't wanna see, and for whatever reason, they 
pretend they don't see nothin'.

People see a problem they don't wanna deal with, and they pretend they're too 
busy to be bothered.

This...sort of tendency...is spreadin' like a disease.  It's real tragic to 
say, but that's the world we live in.

Don't that seem sorta... 
all messed up to you?

I mean, closin' your eyes, hopin' that all the bad stuff is just gonna go away 
and not bother you no more?

That's...that's what babies do.  You hearin' me?  Infants.  You see what I...


Hey!  HEY!
Melvin!  Wake up!

I'm talkin' over here!  This is some serious stuff!  You got no manners at all,
you thumb-suckin' twerp!!!


That's it!  It's go time!  This mole's had ENOUGH!  Time to pay the piper!

My patience gauge is now officially on EMPTY!!!  And the anger gauge is WAY in

You and you're smug little devil-may-care attitude...I'm gonna tunnel through 


Urk.  Massive...leg...cramp......
Blood pressure...skyrocketing...

I'm not supposed to get so worked up, you know.

My doctor, she warned me about this kinda stuff...

Well!  That's it!  No more!  I'm done for today.  I'm goin' home.

Tryin' to keep you in check is bad for my health.

No more resetting.  I'm serious, here.

Oh, yeah, one last thing...

Every now and then, go to bed early!  Stayin' up late all the time is for

From here on, I hypothesize that subsequent RESETs will cycle through the last
three RESET dialogues (6th, 7th, and 8th).  This was minimally tested to the 
12th Reset.  Proceed further at your Own risk; actual consequences could 
result, like loss of character, character assets, and other game data.
