Outside The Watched Clock.

It's the problem with coming to utopia… is that it still has the people.
― Roscoe Mullins[src]

The Watched Clock is a diner in Rapture. Located just off High Street, the eatery is owned by Roscoe Mullins.

The Watched Clock is tucked away just off High Street's main drag and is still open even on New Year's Eve 1958. Booker DeWitt and Elizabeth can choose to visit the diner, though it's not required.

The customers at the restaurant are in good spirits even as they engage in heated discussion over the "Parasites" now residing in the recently sunken Fontaine's Department Store. One writes an article for a column, another gently sways to the music on the radio, while others chat over their food. The owner greets Booker and compliments Elizabeth as he wipes down the counter.

Smoke break.

In the kitchen in the back, the employees gripe over the typical issues: the customers, cheap tips, and complaints. The audio diary The Goddamn People by Roscoe Mullins is on a counter by the ovens. After figuring out the code for the maintenance room, the audio diary Offer of Employment can be found lying on a desk within.

Behind the ScenesEdit

  • The radio plays Patsy Cline's 1962 song "She's Got You",[1] which is an anachronism, since Burial at Sea - Episode 1 takes place on December 31, 1958. As Tears had started opening in Rapture[2], artists might have taken a leaf out of Albert Fink's book copied from one of the tears.
  • Ken Levine makes another cameo in a BioShock game as a disgruntled waiter in the kitchen.[3]
