All that Sarah went through after Alan was sucked into the game. She was made the town laughing stock after trying to tell everyone what happened, and was sent to therapist after therapist for most of her life, who tried to convince her that she was crazy.
Sarah: I was a little girl, Alan. You disappeared, and a bunch of bats surrounded me and chased me down the street. I was afraid. I'm sorry, Alan. No one believed me. I was all alone.
Alan: So was I. For 26 years, Sarah.
Sarah: Me too.
