Distant Duet (Night) (3-3) is a level in Rhythm Doctor. It is the Night Shift version of Distant Duet.


The player and Paige cooperate once more to treat both patients in the level, with Paige handling Mr. Stevenson and the player handling Mrs. Stevenson. After the first four beats, however, Paige abruptly stops handling Mr. Stevenson's row, leaving the player to handle both patients on their own throughout the entire level. After the level, Mrs. Stevenson elaborates on the circumstances that led her husband and her to being in the hospital, asking the player for help in seeing a doctor and in getting to properly talk to her husband, stating how her husband likely misses talking to her.


2-player mode[edit]

Player 1 treats Mrs. Stevenson while player 2 treats Mr. Stevenson, both of whose patterns are identical to their singleplayer patterns. Interestingly, this results in the level being a slightly abbreviated version of Distant Duet's 2-player mode.

  • In-game, this level lists Mrs. Stevenson as being the sole patient. This is untrue, as Mr. Stevenson is another patient the player has to treat in the level. This is likely done on purpose; the Day Shift counterpart has the player only treating a single patient, which sets up the surprise for the Night Shift level to have the player treating both Mrs. & Mr. Stevenson at once.
  • After passing the level for the first time in a save file, a piano song can be heard that is not played anywhere else in the game. It is currently unknown what the name of this song is.
