I get an error saying:

File "<stdin>", line 25
SyntaxError: 'break' outside loop
Unknown error.

When I remove the breaks, it gives me this:

Internal error: ReferenceError: Can't find variable: _select

Any help would be appreciated. I'm fairly new to programming, and this is my first project I'm doing without any tutorial guiding me along.

I got it working (except those pause values of course doing nothing, it only has value None from the assignment in beginning at line 3) by removing all nonsensical break statements. I only find it hard to understand the logic, why it says you are girl, when I answer 'boy'.

There is a logic error in the code, if someone answers "no" as q_two they still get the q_three = raw_input("Do you pick the revolver up?") statement. Also, you want to limit the input to specific answers.

q_two = ""
while q_two.lower() not in ("no", "yes"):
    q_two = raw_input("Do you investigate ")

As to the Reference Error, you will have to include the complete error message to get any help.

I want the results to contradict the answers, but I want there to be a little bit of a pause between things. Also, I want the code to stop where I have the breaks. Is there a way to do those things?

This will work ...
pause = lambda: time.sleep(3)
Then call with ...
pause()

Also convert a very long text line into multiline text this way ...

print """\

or a no, type out the entire word.
