Alice's Call for Help is one of the Collectibles found in Alan Wake. It is one of Doctor Emil Hartman's recordings.


Emil Hartman: Now, Mrs Wake, can you tell me about Alan's problems?

Alice Wake: He's more and more out of control all the time. The parties, he's so angry all the time, he's getting violent, he's-

Emil Hartman: Do you mean with you?

Alice Wake: No, not with me. No, never. I -- sometimes I almost wish Alan would take a swing at me, because at least that'd lead to a conversation he couldn't just march out of. But no. He's just... Alan doesn't really sleep, and the work... well, he's not writing, at all. He sits there for hours and just gets more and more frustrated. And I can't talk to him.

Emil Hartman: Yes, tell me, Mrs Wake, what would you say to him if he'd listen?

Alice Wake: Oh, I don't know. I want to say, I look at you, and it's not you, just some stranger who resembles you, looking out from behind your eyes, and I don't like that guy much, and now it's all gonna go to hell.

Emil Hartman: But you don't ever say this?

Alice Wake: No, no. I've tried, but... he's not listening. He's too deep in his own problems, always going on about sometimes else... I'm so afraid I'm going to lose him, and we're not even talking anymore. He doesn't let me in anymore, he just keeps me in the dark. I'm so alone here, even when he's home. Please help me, doctor because I'm at my wits' end.

Emil Hartman: Well, if you can just get him here, I'll absolutely do my very best.

Alice Wake: Yeah, but doctor, you need to be careful with him. He's not just going to listen to you and cooperate. He's the most stubborn man I've ever met.

Emil Hartman: We'll, I'll be sure to bear that in mind.

    • Episode Two: "Alan. Please help me."
    • Episode Three: "The most stubborn man I've ever met... Alan. Alan. I'm so afraid... keeps me in the dark. Please help me... I look at you, Alan, and it's not you... something else, looking out from behind your eyes...I'm so alone here... it's all going to go to hell. You need to be careful... and cooperate."
