During heart events, residents of Pelican Town give us response options that often vary widely in tone. I know these choices can change dialogue at later heart events, but beyond that I’m curious of their results. Do these choices affect friendship, or have any other in-game effects?
Yes, some of the dialog choices affect friendship. The random questions are usually less important, but most can give at least a small boost. Some also lose relationship points if you are a jerk.
