Events (Minor Spoilers)
After gaining two hearts, you can trigger a cutscene with Shane by going to Marnie's Ranch after 8:00 PM. Shane is on a dock with you and offers you a beer. He goes on to talk about how he feels like a failure, that he's stuck in a pit, and isn't strong enough to get out. He comments bemusedly on how quickly you drink but warns you not to make a habit of it. He then says goodnight and the cutscene ends.

Three Hearts: starts sending you recipes that he thinks you'll enjoy. To get half a heart, bring him a recipe he gave you.
If you visit his house at 9:00 AM or later you will enter a cut scene of Shane down on the floor out cold (drunk). Marnie will walk in disappointed and after you walk in she will ask you if you can do something, you will go up to him and pour your water can over him. He'll wake up startled and when was Jas walks in Marnie will ask him about his future, he will say he hopes he won't live long enough for that and Jas runs out crying.
At some point he will send you a letter in the mail, saying he felt like writing you something but he has no clue what to say to you. To make up for that, he sends you a pizza along with the letter, saying how he stole it from the backroom of his job for you and to keep it a secret.
This event triggers at 6 hearts if you go into Pelican Town after 9:00 AM. You will encounter Shane, Clint, and Emily in Town. Shane is holding a video camera and trying to record a scene with Clint and Emily. Clint can't remember his line and Shane stops recording. He will then notify you and ask you to walk behind Clint and Emily to add authenticity. He does this scene to take part in the Joja advertisement competition for winning 10,000g. You agree and take a position. Shane starts the scene. Everyone is doing their part perfectly. The scene for the competition ends with Clint drinking "Joja Blue". Shane is happy that everything went smoothly but unfortunately Clint will turn blue.
Trigger Warning: Suicide
After the 1.1 update it has changed. It is triggered in the forest by Marnie’s Ranch after 12:00 AM on a rainy day. He is collapsed on the edge of the cliff near the sewer surrounded by 6-packs of beer. Barely conscious, he talks about how his life is repetitive and how he tries to run from his self-hatred, how he feels the only way to take control of his life is a suicide, but he can't make himself do it. Shane then asks what reason he even has to live ("There's so much to live for" "Jas, you're like a father to her" "It's a sin" and "It's your choice, but I'm here for you"). Shane then asks you to take him to the hospital. When you cut back in, the Doctor says Shane will be physically alright after treatment, but he's concerned about Shane's mental health and is recommending a counselor in Zuzu city.
The next day he's waiting outside of your house for you. He is thankful but embarrassed and you can reply ("Glad I was there to help" "You were pretty messed up" "I'm just glad you're here") He doesn't remember much, but has decided to see the therapist.

Triggers when you enter Marnie's Ranch after 9:00 AM. Marnie says Shane looks happier than he has in a long time and asks if there was a discount beer sale. Shane replies with no, he's been drinking Sparkling Water instead and also you can depend on your friends, which he has, and that's okay. He then gives Jas a present of bunny-jewel slippers. She mentions they're expensive and asks how he afforded them. He replys that he's cut back on an expensive habit.
Triggers when you enter Marnie's Ranch after 9:00 AM. Jas is waiting for you to tell you Shane wants to show you something, then leads you through the door that is always locked. Shane interacts with the only non-blue chicken for a bit until you walk in. When you enter he shows you that he has blue chickens and talks about how he's been breeding them so that he contributes to the world and has been teaching Jas how to take care of them.
He meets you in the morning and asks you to "The Tunnelers" game with him. If you meet him at the bus stop at 5:00 the bus will be miraculously fixed, even if you haven't completed the bundles. At the Tunnelers game, he gives you a beer and asks how you like the game ("It's noisey, I prefer Pelican Town" or "I like it, it's too quiet in the country"). When the Tunnelers score he gives you a peck on the cheek and promptly blames it on the beer. Not putting up with that, you kiss him right back, this time on the lips. Afterwards he says it was a good game... "oh, and we won too."
"I don't know you. Why are you talking to me?"
"It's my birthday and you give me this?"
"No, I don't have time to chat with you."
"Why are you bothering me? I want to be alone."
"I hardly know you. Why are you talking to me?"
"Hm. It's [x time]. Should I warm up a pizza in the microwave now or wait until later?"
"What do you want from me? Money? I'd give you a pot of gold to leave me alone!"
"I'm surprised you're still trying to make friends with me. Haven't I been rude enough to you yet?"
"You again? How many times do I have to tell you to leave me alone?"
"Hey. Sorry if I came off as rude when we first met. It takes me a while to warm up to strangers."
"Life isn't so bad...at least I have frozen pizza and eggs."
"I think I might be gaining weight..."
"I guess I've grown attached to Marnie and Jas. We're a ragtag bunch but it kind of feels like a weird family...I never really had much of a family as a kid."
- "Our hens have been working overtime to prepare for this festival. They deserve the best tonight...bowls of sweet yellow corn!"
- "Wow...you don't get hot pepper chutney like this in the big city..."
Dance of the Moonlight Jellies
- "The jellies were here a year ago, and they'll be back a year again from now, nature is amazing."
Festival of Ice
- "I've met some people who believe in spirits, and magic... but me? I've never seen anything that couldn't be explained by science."
|After Marriage Dialogue|
|Why don't you tell me about your day in bed tonight, I'm busy now.|
|I'm going to go out today, alright?|
|Don't worry, this is only Joja Cola.|
|Hmm... I have to say, JojaMart has a much better selection of frozen dinners. (Said at Pierre's store)|
|If I don't order a cold one now and then, Gus will go out of business. I'm just doing my civic duty. I'll head home around 10. (Said at the saloon)|
|Charlie's doing well.|
|I dunno if my lungs can handle this freshness. I'm still used to JojaAir.|
|Buh... I wish I was six inches taller and a whole lot smarter... You like me for who I am? I still have a hard time understanding that...|
|I got up early and watered some crops for you. I hope it makes your job a little easier today.|
|Sometimes I stop and realize that I'm nothing more than a bag of juicy, squishy flesh. But hey... that's just fine... what's life, anyway?|
|When I stop and think about it... I'm in a good place. My life is pretty nice.|
|I'm just gonna have a couple more beers before closing my eyes for the night.|
|Oh, hey [Player]. Miss me already?|
|I'm attatched to these woods... lots of memories... (Said outside Marnie’s farm)|
|Sorry if I'm sweaty... That was quite a walk... Buh, I'm out of shape. (Said after walking home from Marnie’s farm)|
|I may keep to myself a lot, and I may seem unhappy sometimes... but I do appreciate all the work you do. I'm a lucky guy.|
|If... If only... ah, I was just thinking back on the glory days, when I played gridball on the varsity team. Now I'm old and weak, thought...|
|Hey, [Player]. You were sleeping like a baby so I slipped out of bed and went for a morning walk around the farm. Everything looks fine.|
|I spent all day watching TV and now my legs feel like soft dough. I'll have to take it easy until tomorrow.|
|Buh... sometimes life feels like a slow, grey blur... know what I mean?|
|Honey... I wanted to give you that fruit as a symbol of my love. (stardrop)|
|If you need to go see your friends in town, go ahead. I'm happy in the company of the TV and a couple of tall boys.|
|Tiip-tappa-tip-tappa-tip... I'm starting to feel thirsty. (Raining)|
|What are your plans for the fall? I'm going to try and incorporate more wine into my diet.|
|I didn't sleep well last night so I'm hoping this fresh air will get the juices flowing. What juices, you ask? Heh... you're weird.|
|Hmm. I might have to buy a few cases of pumpkin ale to celebrate the season.|
|Huh... You're wondering why I have this goofy grin on my face? You really have a short memory span, don't you? *blush*|
|*smooch*... Mmm, it tastes like someone's been nibbling on pizza rolls.|
