Wow, you guys are incredible! This just sounded like gibberish to me!
I've been following along, and I think Lella, QtheC, and Fatal Gear are right... this has to be Dutch, because of Elizabeth's connection to Weyer. Everyone did so much great work trying to figure out how to translate it! So it sounds like it's something about the neighborhood park Friday. Thanks, guys!!!

Well, even if it is not "typical" Dutch, maybe EA has a little bit of an accent? So, go to the park, Daniel! Good luck!!!
That might be it! Thanks for the info guys!
The reversed audio is poorly pronounced Dutch. Roughly translated it says: "Friday, the park where you were, go look there."
The TAAG extensively discusses American Idol, which could be a new product placement deal. It is also possible that the conversation was created for the amusement of fans (conversations regarding the show regularly occur in the LG15 chat).
TAAG drink Pacifico beer.
Daniel says he likes Carly, from American Idol, who shares the name of Carly Jones, the actress who played Mallory.
Elizabeth suggesting to read a book, may be a hint to read the Hymn of One book "Finding the One, as a copy is owned by Sarah.
A Stranger Calls on LGPedia.

hunnah (and perhaps others on the same thread) deserve credit for pointing out the Elizabeth Avery connection to Weyer...
Bree explained how at the age of 21, the woman later known as Elizabeth Avery lived and studied in Edinburgh, Scotland. At that time, Bree's mother was working on a dissertation on Johann Weyer, a Dutch physician, occultist, and demonologist."

Working with others on the thread (in particular Lella who suggested "to look" as a translation) and Fatal Gear who was on the Dutch rather than German track, here was my stab at a translation of the Dutch from the reversed audio (still not sure about the last two syllables - they could be totally wrong)...
vrijdag = friday
nabuurschap = neighborhood
parkeren = park
gaan = go
kijk = to look
daar = there
