    Yes. 3 different times now.

    I kind of like it. Sometimes I click through the dialogue too quickly and miss things. It's like a second chance to counteract my ADHD!

    I've been getting this for a while now. I don't mind it. Sometimes I zone out on the dialogue as well, and I get a chance to re-read it.

    It's been happening to me on and off for a while. Sometimes if you get an item at the end of the dialogue, you'll get another one the second time around. I received 2 suspicious dirt piles this way :D

    Never happened to me, but if there's a chance you might get bonus item's I wouldn't be asking for a fix!

    It has also been happening to me for the last few events. Started quite a ways back, and it is very intermittent.

    One thing that I have noticed on more than one occasion is that the character that repeats the dialogue was involved in another task when the exclamation point appears....in other words, on several occasions I had to use the railyard to access a character who had dialogue...the exclamation point was hovering above one of the recycling depots...I could not tap him directly, I had to open the railyard to get there...

    I was going to mention this a couple of times, but it really has not been a big deal...

    I'd been hoping for a second item each time it happened to me, but no such luck.

    This glitch dates back pretty much to the game’s initial release. I see it every once in a while. I consider it a minor annoyance, but nothing more. I’m fairly certain there’s no real fix. Frankly, I’d rather see this sort of problem, where the user is exposed to redundant information, rather than the reverse, where one misses out on critical info.

    tap on the character's portrait on the top left to initiate the dialogue, instead of tapping on the character.

    normally the character who is going to speak will have his/her portrait brought to the first, along with an exclamation mark....

    almost all of my duplicate dialogue boxes happen when I tapped on the character instead.

    I don't mind this. Sometimes it works in your favour. Today I finally got around to finishing the Breaking Bread quest and the final conversation duplicated...but it meant I got 2 of the suspicious dirt piles off Wiggum. Bonus!

    I've seen it a few times, only annoying when there's tons of dialogue boxes. I think the poster above me figured out why it happens. Makes sense. I've only seen it mostly if the character is already on task, but the bubble comes up for them to initiate a quest. Which I think I use the character locator as that's where I see the !, as that character is not always on the screen when it appears.
