* While it's clear that Badeline represents an aspect of herself that Madeline has been trying to suppress, I still can't figure out exactly ''which'' personality trait or emotion Badeline is supposed to represent. It's hard to pin down one specific thing that Badeline consistently embodies, unless she's just a broad manifestation of "negative feelings" in general, but that doesn't really seem right either.

** It's been theorized in [[https://forums.somethingawful.com/showthread.php?threadid=3852705&userid=0&perpage=40&pagenumber=4#post483095992 Something Awful]] that the strawberries represent the mountain's challenges to Madeline. In Chapter 6, Maddie momentarily loses her interest in climbing the mountain, so its challenges mean nothing to her anymore -- so no point in keeping the strawberries.

** It's probably because there's a large chunk of the level where you have multiple paths that do not loop back, and would thus be unfair to have strawberries in. But that doesn't explain the start and end of the level. And they certainly weren't worried about disrupting the tone by putting strawberries at the end of chapters 2 and 3.

** It seems like this was left intentionally vague, but we can speculate based on their conversation. The man calls her "sweetheart", so he may be Madelineís father or significant other. He also says they havenít talked for months, so they seem to have a strained relationship.
