The Steven has given me this Earth machine to replace my communicator log. It looks... extremely primitive.
|—Peridot, "Log Date 7 15 2"|
Peridot's Voice Recorder is an item that debuted in "Too Far". It was given to Peridot by Steven as an apology gift, as the Crystal Gems destroyed her limb enhancers which contained her previous logs. In "Log Date 7 15 2", Peridot gives Steven the recorder, and he listens to several entries from the tape before giving the device back to Peridot at the end of the episode. The most recent Log Date was 7 15 2. It is destroyed by Lapis Lazuli in "Barn Mates" after Peridot attempts to give it to her as a gift to win her trust back. In "Beta", Peridot shows that she has turned the destroyed recorder and tape into a "meep morp" (or art piece) entitled "Wow, Thanks".
Peridot's Voice Recorder is a small gray tape recorder with three buttons on the side. One button is red and the other two are dark gray. There is a tape inside signed "KEEP OUT!!!!!!!!" and a little alien drawing on the top half of the recorder, and on the bottom half there is a speaker.
- The tape has Jesse Zuke's signature "alien face" doodle on it; however, it did not become their signature image until after they storyboarded "Too Far" and "Log Date 7 15 2".
- Peridot's logs in the recorder are a possible reference to Special Agent Dale Cooper of the TV series Twin Peaks.
- Peridot's log date in "Too Far" is 7 11 2. She makes 3 entries on this date.
- In the first entry, she says it's been 3 days since they began a collaborative approach to dealing with the Cluster. It's unclear whether this is 3 days since the end of "Back to the Barn" (when she started co-operating with Pearl) or 3 days since the end of "When It Rains" (when she started co-operating with Steven).
- In the second entry, she talks about going to salvage a drill with Amethyst and Steven.
- In the third entry, she records an apology to Amethyst.
- Before getting the recorder, she made log entries dated 3 1 2 in "Warp Tour" and 6 5 2 in "Keeping It Together".
- In "Log Date 7 15 2", Peridot makes logs dated 7 11 2, 7 12 2, 7 13 2 and 7 15 2. Peridot and Garnet together make a log labeled 7 14 2.
- 7 11 2 - Steven gives Peridot the tape recorder and she makes her first log entry.
- 7 12 2 - It's been 30 Earth days since Peridot was captured in "Catch and Release".
- 7 13 2 - Progress update on the drill.
- 7 14 2 - Peridot records an entry with Garnet. Peridot talks about how she gained a better understanding of Garnet after their unsuccessful fusion attempt. Garnet tells Steven he probably shouldn't be listening to Peridot's logs, and asks him to return Peridot's recorder.
- 7 15 2 - Peridot panics after refusing a direct order from Yellow Diamond and calling her a clod at the end of "Message Received".
