1-2N Intimate (Night)
"Everything will be okay. We still have each other!"

Intimate (1-2) is a level in Rhythm Doctor. The Night Shift version is Intimate (Night).

It introduces the characters Logan and Hailey, and the Row Xs mechanic.


The player treats Logan for what Ian calls "excessive schmaltziness." Halfway through the level, Hailey insists on being treated in the same room as Logan. The player and Dr Paige cooperate to treat the two, Paige handling Hailey's row. After the level, Hailey explains to Logan that she got worried since he had told her he was going to the hospital without any explanation. Logan apologizes, explaining that he said "something stupid" in their last conversation, before Hailey cuts him off to reassure him, saying that they now have time to discuss what it was that he wanted to say. Paige then continues the player's tour of the hospital.


PaigeSpriteS.png Hey! Before we move on, some tips about a new type of heartbeat...
PaigeSpriteS.png This time, you'll get a new kind of patient.
PaigeSpriteS.png Sometimes people come to us with this problem.
PaigeSpriteS.png Their heart skips a beat. (So let's catch it while they're still in reach.)
PaigeSpriteS.png When a red X shows up on the line, that beat will be silent.
PaigeSpriteS.png Just count the numbers in your head...
PaigeSpriteS.png ...and hit on the seventh beat.
PaigeSpriteS.png (Excuse the nurse, she's Chinese.)
On miss:
PaigeSpriteS.png Oh dear.
PaigeSpriteS.png Remember to hit the spacebar on the SEVENTH BEAT.
On barely:
PaigeSpriteS.png Aah, almost!
PaigeSpriteS.png If you are having trouble, try tapping out the ghost beats somewhere nearby.
On hit:
PaigeSpriteS.png Yuh-huh.
PaigeSpriteS.png One more.
PaigeSpriteS.png Nice!
PaigeSpriteS.png Good job.
IanSpriteS.png Your next patient isn't even actually sick.
IanSpriteS.png I think he's just suffering from excessive schmaltziness.
PaigeSpriteS.png Hopefully you can snap him out of it.
PaigeSpriteS.png Well, good luck!
[Level start]
LoganSpriteS.png Doctor!
LoganSpriteS.png You've gotta help me!
LoganSpriteS.png My heart's not feeling too good...
LoganSpriteS.png I don't know what to do...


PaigeSpriteS.png What?!
PaigeSpriteS.png Another patient is insisting on being treated in here as well.
[Single Player]
PaigeSpriteS.png I'll handle the new one.
PaigeSpriteS.png You focus on the boy.
LoganSpriteS.png What? Woah.
[Two Player]
PaigeSpriteS.png Player Two!
PaigeSpriteS.png You handle that one!
LoganSpriteS.png She's...
LoganSpriteS.png ...
LoganSpriteS.png She's here too!
PaigeSpriteS.png Great job, intern!
LoganSpriteS.png Woah, uh...hey H-Hailey, I had no idea you were here too.
HaileySpriteS.png Yeah! Well, funny story...
HaileySpriteS.png You said something about having to go to the hospital,
HaileySpriteS.png and then you never texted back to explain why!
HaileySpriteS.png So, I kinda started freaking out, thinking you got sick.
HaileySpriteS.png I got so worried, my chest started to hurt. So my parents had me come here too.
HaileySpriteS.png I didn't think it'd be so...musical, though.
IanSpriteS.png W-we're, uh, experimenting with some new methods.
HaileySpriteS.png When I heard that you were on this floor too, I wanted to come visit!
LoganSpriteS.png Oh, cool!
LoganSpriteS.png Um, sorry. That last time we talked...I got flustered, I think I said something stupid. What I meant was-
HaileySpriteS.png No, don't worry about it! At least we have plenty of time to hang out while we're stuck here.
HaileySpriteS.png You can tell me whatever was really on your mind, okay?
PaigeSpriteS.png Alright, that's probably enough for now. Let's let Logan get his rest.
PaigeSpriteS.png Ready, intern? Let's continue the tour.
JanitorSmol.png Did you see those two kiddos?
JanitorSmol.png They totally have a thing for each other, that's what I think.
JanitorSmol.png You would think I got the scoop from "eavesdropping", but...
JanitorSmol.png ...they just talk really loud, we can all hear them down the hall.

2P Changes[edit]

  • Player 1 and Player 2 swap control of Logan's heartbeat three times. After the first interlude, Player 2 takes control of Hailey's heartbeat instead of the CPU. Paige's dialogue changes, directing Player 2 to take care of Hailey. Player 1 takes control of Logan's heartbeat. The two players retain control of their respective heartbeats until the level ends.



  • If Two Player mode is enabled, the second player will be made to handle Hailey's row of heartbeats after the first interlude. Since 1-2 and 1-2N have identical beat patterns, with the only difference being a change in dialogue and visuals, this makes it able to functionally experience 1-2N before 1-2N is actually unlocked.
  • Additionally, in 1-2, Player 1 and Player 2 swap control of the first patient's standalone heartbeat several times. However, in 1-2N, Player 1 has full control of the first patient's standalone heartbeat, with Player 2 having no gameplay input until after the first interlude, where they take care of the second patient's heartbeat. This means that, on Two Player mode, 1-2 has more input complexity than its Night Shift variant, since the two players have to juggle control of the first patient's heartbeat.
  • This the only level in which Two Player mode enables player control of a patient whose heartbeat is normally controlled by an NPC.
