1DialogueFinchAbigailAbrahamScene0010C871Abigail: Abraham Finch, just how big do you plan to let that junk pile of yours get?{Henpecked husband} Woman, I must've told you a dozen times by now, if it gets too big, I'll start a new pile down by the razorgrain patch.Abigail: That's what you said last year, when your pile was half that big.A1a
20010C86FAbigail: What I want to know is, how big is too big? Because I'm thinking it's too big already.{Henpecked husband} Fine, fine. I'll get to moving it when my day ain't filled from sun-up to sun-down with all the other work that goes on around here.Abigail: Oh, why do I even bother.A1a
3DialogueFinchAbigailAbraham_JakeDeadScene0010C866Abigail: Took me an hour to stop crying over it.{Consoling you wife after your son died} Oh, Abbey...Abigail: How could we let it happen? How could we fail our own son so completely?A1a
40010C864Abigail: How could we let it happen? How could we fail our own son so completely?{Gentle, consoling} We did the best we could by him, but Jake was a grown man and he made his decision.A1a
5{Gentle, consoling} I know it's hard, but we can't go on blaming ourselves.Abigail: I just don't see how I'll ever be able to forgive myself.A1b
60010C862Abigail: I just don't see how I'll ever be able to forgive myself.{Gentle, consoling} I know, Abbey. I know.A1a
7DialogueFinchAbigailAbraham2Scene0010D4C2Abigail: Are my eyes playing tricks on me, or did that scrap heap of yours get about ten pieces of junk larger since last week?{Guilty, sheepish} What uh... what makes you think that, sweetheart?Abigail: Don't you play coy with me, husband. There ain't been any traders by here with that much scrap, not lately.A1a
80010D4C0Abigail: If those gunners catch you stealin' their metal, you know what they'll do.{Confident} You've got nothing to worry about, Abbey.A1a
9{Confident} I've been going there since long before those gunners took over.A1b
10{Confident} I know every secret tunnel, hiding spot and escape route there is.A1c
11{Confident} Even if they do spot me, they couldn't catch me. I'm just too smart for 'em.Abigail: One of these days, you're going to find out that you aren't half as clever as you think you are.A1d
120010D4BEAbigail: When that happens, it's ain't just going to be you that suffers, it's going to be all of us.{Firm} That's enough, now. I haven't been caught yet, and I ain't going to be.A1a
13{Firm} That should be good enough for you.A1b
14DialogueFinchAbrahamAbigailScene0010C86D{Annoyed} Where'd you put those fusion cells I set out the other day?Abigail: I put them back in your junk pile, dear.A1a
150010C86BAbigail: You know the rule. Anything that ain't on the workbench is fair game when I'm cleaning.Well couldn't you have asked me first, woman?A1a
16{Annoyed} I had to dig around in that pile for two hours straight to find those damn things!Abigail: Really? If I had to stop and ask about every piece of scrap you left laying around, I'd need a week just to tidy up the house!A1b
170010C869Abigail: That's why we made that rule in the first place. And I might remind you, Abraham Lowell Finch, that you agreed to it!{Defensive, flustered} Alright, alright! I get the point, woman.Abigail: Hmph. I'll believe it when I see it.A1a
18DialogueFinchAbrahamDanielScene0010C861{Warning} Keep a watch to the east while you're working today, son.A1a
19{Concern} I saw something down by the waterline. Looked big, too.Daniel: Mirelurk. Got to be.A1b
200010C85FDaniel: They've been getting closer lately. Probably scoping us out.Well, they get too close, they're going to get a taste of hot lead.Daniel: Yes sir.A1a
21DialogueFinchDanielAbrahamScene00167884Daniel: We got an extra shovel anywhere in the scrap?Pretty sure we do, yeah.Daniel: Know where it is?A1a
2200167882Daniel: Know where it is?{Amused} Not a clue.Daniel: Doesn't it ever occur to you that all this junk isn't doing us any good if we can't find something when we need it?A1a
2300167880Daniel: Doesn't it ever occur to you that all this junk isn't doing us any good if we can't find something when we need it?{Reassuring} You just need to dig around a little. It's there somewhere.Daniel: Yeah... I think it'd be faster to shovel dirt with my hands.A1a
