When the player plays as one of the twins, the other sibling is always near. If you click with the mouse on the non-playable twin, they will say a bunch of lines to the twin that player has choosen to play.

Dipper's lines[]

  • Ow!
  • My Eye!
  • Good luck! You're gonna need it!
  • I would've have solved this by now.
  • What's the hold up?
  • You're in over your head, sis.
  • Need a magnifying glass?
  • Want help? Sorry Sis!
  • Quit poking me!
  • Searching for a boyfriend?
  • This place smells like old man!
  • I'm getting bored over here Mabel.
  • Man! I miss video games!
  • Man, you're taking forever to figure this out.
  • Hurry up! Im running out of taunts!
  • What time is it? Oh sure, it's HURRY UP O'CLOCK.
  • You should really give up and let me take over.
  • Nothing like being trapped inside a log cabin with your sister on the weekend!
  • You want me to come back when you've figured it out? Maybe in a month?
  • Gravity Falls! Come for the scenery, stay because your parents won't let you leave!

Mabel's lines[]

  • (Breathing loudly trough braces)
  • That Thickles!
  • Bleep Bloop Bloop
  • What's that?? Made you look.
  • You''ll never figure it out!
  • Here's a hint: You Smell!
  • I'll just be standing over here being adorable.
  • Hey! What's red and blue and confused all over? You!
  • Awwww! It's cute watching you try!
  • Hurry it up, dumb-dumb face!
  • Why do you always wear the same hat?
  • If i cross my eyes there's two of you! Hi Dippers!
  • Haha! You're totally stumped!
  • Ah! Bit my tongue!
  • Meow! Meow! Meow!
  • Thbbbbbb. I'm a motorboat!
  • I wonder if i could count to a bajillion?
  • This music is so mysterriioouusss
  • Don't hurt your brain trying to figure this out, bro!
  • I'm just going to say your name over and over. Dipper! Dipper! Dipper!
  • Haha! What's that? Oh, I'm just laughing at an inside joke. You wouldn't get it.


  • There is an axolotl in the fish tank.
  • If the red box with a question mark (?) on it is clicked, the game's text will read, "Empty! I was hoping for coins or mushrooms", which is a reference to Super Mario, a famous game of Nintendo.
  • If the Grizzlycorn in the gift shop area is clicked the game's text will read, "The Last Grizzlycorn". Like "The Last Mabelcorn", this is a reference to The Last Unicorn.
  • One of Mabel's lines to Dipper ''Why do you always wear the same hat?'' doesn't make any sence since she knows why he wears the same hat according to the Journal.
  • Another line of Mabel in the game is ''(Breathing loudly trough braces)''. Which is reference to the episode Carpet Diem when Dipper reveals that she does this.
  • When Mabel says to Dipper that he smells, is a reference that is often made in the series and books about him for not taking enough showers during the summer vacation.
