The following dialogue went unused.

[MAD RAT] "That does sound nice.... but listen, Rat God..."

[RAT GOD] "Hm? What is it?"

[MAD RAT] "Uh... you saw didn't you? I was so weak, I died. Even if I could go back in time, what could I do with just one day?"

[RAT GOD] "Are you kidding me?! I can't believe this! Whining makes you sound even more pathetic!"

[MAD RAT] "Don't blame me, I was in a cage my whole life! Wishing wasn't enough! Because of him, I...!"

[RAT GOD] "*sigh* This is why you gave in to being a lab rat. It's why you spent your last days in a cage."

[MAD RAT] "I didn't CHOOSE to become a lab rat!"

[RAT GOD] "Don't worry! One day is enough to turn your life around!"

[MAD RAT] "Just one day? Even in this weak body?"

[RAT GOD] "Yes! Of course! Simply move forward."

[MAD RAT] "You don't feel anything?! You don't hate him?!"

[MOB RAT] "Well, there are no cats here. I'm safe. There's food here, too."

[MAD RAT] "That's how he keeps us alive for experiments! Doesn't that make you mad?!"

[MAD RAT] "You'll regret not realizing your dreams."

[MOB RAT] "Dreams are nice, but I don't need them now."

[MAD RAT] "Oh, come ON. Are you serious?! You're going to live like this?!"
