  • His character model can be invisible, leaving only the name to find him by.
  • Even after his model "disappears" after he finishes his dialogue, it can still be interacted with and will display the dialogue chain from "S-so what do you say?". If you go away far enough before interacting with, the dialogue restarts from "H-hey... I... (groans)"
  • Sometimes, interacting does not bring up the dialogue.
