317COMDeacon_01a_NeutralToFriendship000F7715I'd still like to talk. If you're interested.Player Default: Now's a good time.A
318We've been traveling for a spell. I was hoping to have some words with you.Player Default: Now's a good time.A
319000F7713Player Default: Maybe later.Another time.Deacon: I'm used to flying solo. But I gotta admit, working with you makes me think I've been missing out. Having someone watching your back... is refreshing.B1a
320000F770CPlayer Default: Another time.I'm used to flying solo. But I gotta admit, working with you makes me think I've been missing out. Having someone watching your back... is refreshing.A1a
321Especially since you never know when the Institute is watching.Player Default: The feeling's mutual.A1b
322000F770BPlayer Default: The feeling's mutual.I got to say, you make it look easy. But you have some built in advantages.Deacon: Some people at HQ are jealous. You took the Big Nap and everyone you knew is long gone. Wait, hear me out on the silver lining.A1a
323000F770APlayer Default: Don't get all mushy on me.Aww. I was just about to open up about my first pet mole rat, Bessie, and the time we had to put her down.Deacon: Some people at HQ are jealous. You took the Big Nap and everyone you knew is long gone. Wait, hear me out on the silver lining.B1a
324000F7709Player Default: It's always good to have back up.Exactly.Deacon: Some people at HQ are jealous. You took the Big Nap and everyone you knew is long gone. Wait, hear me out on the silver lining.X1a
325000F7708Player Default: You've never had a partner?Not for a long time. Besides, partnering up in the Railroad can leave you vulnerable. One more person who can finger you to the Institute.Deacon: Some people at HQ are jealous. You took the Big Nap and everyone you knew is long gone. Wait, hear me out on the silver lining.Y1a
326000F7703Player Default: I got to say, you make it look easy. But you have some built in advantages.Some people at HQ are jealous. You took the Big Nap and everyone you knew is long gone. Wait, hear me out on the silver lining.A1a
327If a human in the Railroad slips up then they expose friends and loved ones to danger. You're safe from that.Player Default: Well, I guess I'm a little lucky then.A1b
328000F7702Player Default: Well, I guess I'm a little lucky then.What's done is done, and the up shot is you're in a position where you can act openly. If you go to ground, there's little the Coursers can do about it.Deacon: It doesn't matter much to me. I'm a synth. At least that's what they tell me. So I really don't have anything to lose.A1a
329000F7701Player Default: You're saying that losing my boy is a good thing?{Apologetic} Oh, Jesus, I didn't mean that. If the Church gets compromised and the Coursers are on our tail at least you're not putting more people in harm's way. That's all.Deacon: It doesn't matter much to me. I'm a synth. At least that's what they tell me. So I really don't have anything to lose.B1a
330000F7700Player Default: I hadn't thought of it that way.{Somber} When the Switchboard went sideways some people lost family as well as comrades. That's got to be tough.Deacon: It doesn't matter much to me. I'm a synth. At least that's what they tell me. So I really don't have anything to lose.X1a
331000F76FFPlayer Default: Why would the people they care about be in danger?{Sad} When the Coursers start kicking down doors - they just don't hit Railroad safehouses. Some friends and family have been known to get axed.Y1a
332{Somber} Whether the Institute's motivated by vengeance or faulty intel, it doesn't matter to the people left behind.Deacon: It doesn't matter much to me. I'm a synth. At least that's what they tell me. So I really don't have anything to lose.Y1b
333000F76FAPlayer Default: What's done is done, and the up shot is you're in a position where you can act openly. If you go to ground, there's little the Coursers can do about it.{Somber} It doesn't matter much to me. I'm a synth. At least that's what they tell me. So I really don't have anything to lose.A1a
334{Somber} For Glory and me, and the others, it's easier to dedicate ourselves to the cause.Player Default: I had no idea.A1b
335000F76F9Player Default: I had no idea.I figured you deserved to know. I was one of the first to get the whole cranium reboot and let's just say it was a learning experience for everyone.Deacon: Since we're traveling together I want you to take this. It's my recall code.A1a
336000F76F8Player Default: You expect me to believe that?{Confident} Why not? I was one of the first to get the good old cranium reboot and it was a learning experience for everyone. Makes me quirky and fun that way.Deacon: Since we're traveling together I want you to take this. It's my recall code.B1a
337000F76F7Player Default: That's interesting.That's one word for it.Deacon: Since we're traveling together I want you to take this. It's my recall code.X1a
338000F76F6Player Default: You're a synth? Why didn't you tell me before?I don't like talking about it. I was one of the first synths they did the whole cranium reboot on. So it was a bit of a botch job.Y1a
339Most synths have fun fake memories. A happy home, a family. Me, I got nothing. And that... well, it does something to you.Deacon: Since we're traveling together I want you to take this. It's my recall code.Y1b
340000F76F1Player Default: I figured you deserved to know. I was one of the first to get the whole cranium reboot and let's just say it was a learning experience for everyone.{Nervous} Since we're traveling together I want you to take this. It's my recall code.A1a
341{Nervous} If you ever need to know something about the Institute, read it to me.Player Default: I appreciate the trust.A1b
342000F76F0Player Default: I appreciate the trust.{Nervous} Yeah, well, about that.Deacon: Don't use the code unless you absolutely have to. It'll wipe my memories. I'm not sure how much of me will even be left.A1a
343000F76EFPlayer Default: If you expect me to believe you, I want proof.{Amused} Alright, you got me. No fooling you, huh? Don't take it personally, I lie to everyone.Deacon: Maybe I'm just another human that has people back home he wants to protect. Then again, maybe not.B1a
344Player Default: If you expect me to believe you, I want proof.{Confident} If you really want proof, you could read that code and find out. Wait a second. Maybe that's not a good idea.Deacon: Don't use the code unless you absolutely have to. It'll wipe my memories. I'm not sure how much of me will even be left.B2a
345000F76EDPlayer Default: What's the recall code do?That's the safety net the brain docs put in. An ejector seat to bring back your old synth self.Y1a
346I don't know for certain, but I imagine it's a big old wad of trauma and cupcakes. Except with no cupcakes.Deacon: Don't use the code unless you absolutely have to. It'll wipe my memories. I'm not sure how much of me will even be left.Y1b
347000F76E8Player Default: Yeah, well, about that.{Nervous} Don't use the code unless you absolutely have to. It'll wipe my memories. I'm not sure how much of me will even be left.A1a
348{Nervous} You know, I'd just feel better if you didn't read it until you need it.A1b
349COMDeacon_01b_NeutralToFriendship000F7715{Nervous} You know, I'm having second thoughts on that whole recall code. Wait. You read it, didn't you?Player Default: I read it, all right.A
350000F76E7Player Default: I read it, all right.{Nervous} Don't tell me what it said. You know, it's probably just safer if we don't talk right now.Deacon: Did I have you going? Don't take it personal. I lie to everyone.A1a
351000F76E6Player Default: No, I haven't read it yet.{Relieved} Good. Please don't. It'll make it easier to sleep at night.Deacon: Did I have you going? Don't take it personal. I lie to everyone.B1a
352000F76E5Player Default: "You can't trust everyone."*Convulsions*Deacon: Did I have you going? Don't take it personal. I lie to everyone.X1a
353Player Default: "You can't trust everyone."Another time, then.Deacon: Did I have you going? Don't take it personal. I lie to everyone.X2a
354Player Default: "You can't trust everyone."I'm all ready to go.Deacon: Did I have you going? Don't take it personal. I lie to everyone.X3a
355Player Default: "You can't trust everyone."{Angry} What? God damn it. Don't do that.Deacon: Did I have you going? Don't take it personal. I lie to everyone.X4a
356000F76E4Player Default: Why shouldn't I read it?Just in case it gets stuck in your head. You know, like if I say 'radroach'. Now don't think of 'radroach'. See you thought of it.Y1a
357{Nervous} And if it's a real simple code then one slip and goodbye Deacon. Anyway, only read it if you have to.Deacon: Did I have you going? Don't take it personal. I lie to everyone.Y1b
358000F76DFDeacon: Did I have you going? Don't take it personal. I lie to everyone.Maybe I'm just another human that has people back home he wants to protect. Then again, maybe not.Player Default: Well, you're good in my book. Whatever or whoever you are.A1a
359000F76DEPlayer Default: Well, you're good in my book. Whatever or whoever you are.{Friendly} I want... If you believe anything, believe this. I'm in your corner. Always have been.Deacon: That code I gave you is a hard truth. You can't trust everyone. Even if someone sounds sincere they could be a synth replacement working for the Institute.A1a
360000F76DDPlayer Default: I don't like being lied to.{Apologetic} My relationship with the truth rubs some people the wrong way. But believe this one thing: I'm in your corner. Always have been. Not everyone can say that.Deacon: That code I gave you is a hard truth. You can't trust everyone. Even if someone sounds sincere they could be a synth replacement working for the Institute.B1a
361000F76DCPlayer Default: You still could be a synth. Are you?{Amused} I think I'll wait until the betting pool back at HQ gets higher before I answer that one. When I need some beer money.Deacon: That code I gave you is a hard truth. You can't trust everyone. Even if someone sounds sincere they could be a synth replacement working for the Institute.X1a
362000F76DBPlayer Default: Is that really why you lied to me?I'm supposed to be showing you the ropes in the Railroad, so let's say this is lesson, well, whatever number we're at.Deacon: That code I gave you is a hard truth. You can't trust everyone. Even if someone sounds sincere they could be a synth replacement working for the Institute.Y1a
363000F76D6Player Default: I want... If you believe anything, believe this. I'm in your corner. Always have been.{Somber} That code I gave you is a hard truth. You can't trust everyone. Even if someone sounds sincere they could be a synth replacement working for the Institute.A1a
364{Amused} The bitch of the problem is recognizing the 90% of the time someone's on the up and up and the 10% of the time you're being played.A1b
365000F76D5Player Default: Don't tell me what it said. You know, it's probably just safer if we don't talk right now.{Amused} Did I have you going? Don't take it personal. I lie to everyone.Deacon: Maybe I'm just another human that has people back home he wants to protect. Then again, maybe not.A1a
366COMDeacon_02_FriendshipToAdmiration000F7715We've been making the rounds, doing the job. It's time you learn the Big Secret.Deacon: Everyone thinks that Desdemona is the big boss. She calls the ops, gives the ra-ra speeches. But it's just an act.A
367000F765DNPCMDeacon: We've been making the rounds, doing the job. It's time you learn the Big Secret.Everyone thinks that Desdemona is the big boss. She calls the ops, gives the ra-ra speeches. But it's just an act.A1a
368She does what I tell her to because the Railroad's my show. It's been that way since I founded it.Player Default: You really founded it?A1b
369000F765CPlayer Default: You really founded it?{Happy} Sure. Me and Johnny D and Watts. Hell, that was 60? 70 years ago? After awhile you lose count.Deacon: We've come a long way since the beginning. We've done a lot of good. Saved a lot of synths.A1a
370000F765BPlayer Default: Do you really think I'm going to fall for this?{Amused} Fall for what? Haven't you noticed when I say the word Desdemona does a 180. "Hey, there's an intruder". "No, I vouch for him." "Then welcome."B1a
371{Amused} Every time. It works best that way, gives me room to maneuver.Deacon: We've come a long way since the beginning. We've done a lot of good. Saved a lot of synths.B1b
372000F765APlayer Default: I'm not so sure about that.Like I said. The Big Secret.Deacon: We've come a long way since the beginning. We've done a lot of good. Saved a lot of synths.X1a
373000F7659Player Default: You? You founded the Railroad?Sure. Me and Johnny D and Watts. Hell, that was over 60? 70 years ago? After awhile you lose count.Y1a
374I tell everyone I get the occasional face change to stay anonymous. Truth is, it takes a lot of work to keep this mug handsome.Deacon: We've come a long way since the beginning. We've done a lot of good. Saved a lot of synths.Y1b
375000F7654Player Default: Sure. Me and Johnny D and Watts. Hell, that was 60? 70 years ago? After awhile you lose count.We've come a long way since the beginning. We've done a lot of good. Saved a lot of synths.A1a
376{Confident} But we're about more than that. We're the last and only line of defense between the Institute and the Commonwealth. Hell, maybe even the world.Player Default: Any perks being close to the big boss?A1b
377000F7653Player Default: Any perks being close to the big boss?Now that I don't have to hide, sure. Tinker Tom will set you up. But the best perk is seeing behind the curtain.Deacon: People think our missions are all about synths. But there's more going on. We're building a better, brighter Commonwealth.A1a
378000F7652Player Default: You've lied to me at least once. This is just more of the same.{Amused} Yeah, you got me. But you're going to hear the same sort of lies elsewhere.Deacon: There're other organizations out there. And, in time, I'm sure they're going to spoon-feed you their own patented form of bullshit.B1a
379Player Default: You've lied to me at least once. This is just more of the same.{Amused} Am I? Doesn't it make things make a little bit more sense? There's a lot of secrets in the Railroad.Deacon: People think our missions are all about synths. But there's more going on. We're building a better, brighter Commonwealth.B2a
380000F7650Player Default: How are we defending anyone?We keep everyone in cells so no one knows just how large our organization actually is. And just how many things we're doing day-to-day.Deacon: People think our missions are all about synths. But there's more going on. We're building a better, brighter Commonwealth.Y1a
381000F764BPlayer Default: Now that I don't have to hide, sure. Tinker Tom will set you up. But the best perk is seeing behind the curtain.{Confident} People think our missions are all about synths. But there's more going on. We're building a better, brighter Commonwealth.A1a
382{Confident} The Railroad really is the best, noblest organization that's ever lived. We're...Deacon: I can't keep up with this bullshit.A1b
383000F764ADeacon: The Railroad really is the best, noblest organization that's ever lived. We're...{Amused} I can't keep up with this bullshit.Player Default: Traveling with you is never dull.A1a
384000F7649Player Default: Traveling with you is never dull.{Amused} I aim to please. But I had a point here. A lesson, if you will.Deacon: There're other organizations out there. And, in time, I'm sure they're going to spoon-feed you their own patented form of bullshit.A1a
385000F7648Player Default: I knew you were lying to me, you bastard.{Somber} Of course you did. But hopefully there's a point here. A lesson, if you will.Deacon: There're other organizations out there. And, in time, I'm sure they're going to spoon-feed you their own patented form of bullshit.B1a
386000F7647Player Default: Sometimes I think you're crazy.{Amused} Sometimes I think you're right. But there's a point to this. A lesson, if you will.Deacon: There're other organizations out there. And, in time, I'm sure they're going to spoon-feed you their own patented form of bullshit.X1a
387000F7646Player Default: Why the hell are you lying to me? Again?{Amused} Because it's what I do. And, there's a point to this - a lesson, if you will.Deacon: There're other organizations out there. And, in time, I'm sure they're going to spoon-feed you their own patented form of bullshit.Y1a
388000F7641Player Default: I aim to please. But I had a point here. A lesson, if you will.There're other organizations out there. And, in time, I'm sure they're going to spoon-feed you their own patented form of bullshit.A1a
389Ignore the verbage and look at what they're doing. What they're asking you to do.A1b
390{Somber} What sort of world they'd have you build and how they're going to pay for it.Player Default: Thanks for the advice.A1c
391000F7640Player Default: Thanks for the advice.I don't know if it's your good old fashion Pre-War values or you just won the genetic lottery, but anyone that has you in their corner has an advantage.Deacon: And at the end of the day you'll need to make a choice. Make it the right one.A1a
392000F763FPlayer Default: I don't need any more of your lies.{Amused} Then boy, did you choose the wrong traveling companion. But hey, listen.Deacon: And at the end of the day you'll need to make a choice. Make it the right one.B1a
393000F763EPlayer Default: So what do you think of the other groups out there?Love the job you're doing with the Minutemen. Historically, they've been little better than policemen, though.X1a
394The Brotherhood... well, I met them on an op in Capital Wasteland a few years back. But now with Elder Maxson... Let's just say, not a fan.X1b
395And the Institute. Well, do I really need to answer that? But what I think, doesn't matter. The real question is: what do you think?Deacon: And at the end of the day you'll need to make a choice. Make it the right one.X1c
396000F763DPlayer Default: So what's the Railroad's deal?We're not about saving the world, too big a job for too few. But we're trying to make it a better one. One synth at a time.Y1a
397And care about the little guys. Maybe lend a hand on the side. Not as much as some would like. But hey, it's something.Y1b
398But the real question is: what do you think of us?Deacon: And at the end of the day you'll need to make a choice. Make it the right one.Y1c
399000F7638Player Default: I don't know if it's your good old fashion Pre-War values or you just won the genetic lottery, but anyone that has you in their corner has an advantage.And at the end of the day you'll need to make a choice. Make it the right one.A1a
400COMDeacon_04_AdmirationToInfatuation000F7715Hey. I got something important to say.Deacon: I really appreciate you putting up with my bullshit. Truth is it's been a long time since I've had a... friend.A

402000F7636Deacon: I really appreciate you putting up with my bullshit. Truth is it's been a long time since I've had a... friend.{Somber} I'm a liar. Everyone knows it. I make no secret of it. Because the truth is: I'm a fraud. To my core.A1a
403{Somber} When I was young, a hell of a long time ago, I was... well, scum. I was a bigot. A very violent bigot.Player Default: We all make mistakes when we're young.A1b
404000F7635Player Default: We all make mistakes when we're young.{Depressed} A mistake or two, yeah. But what I did.Deacon: I ran with a gang in University Point. We called ourselves the UP Deathclaws. For kicks we'd terrorize anyone that we thought was a synth.A1a
405000F7634Player Default: You trying to sell me another of your lies? Really?{Somber} Just hear me out. Make your judgments then.Deacon: I ran with a gang in University Point. We called ourselves the UP Deathclaws. For kicks we'd terrorize anyone that we thought was a synth.B1a
406000F7632Player Default: Were you really that bad?{Depressed} Worse than that.Deacon: I ran with a gang in University Point. We called ourselves the UP Deathclaws. For kicks we'd terrorize anyone that we thought was a synth.Y1a
407000F762DPlayer Default: A mistake or two, yeah. But what I did.{Neutral} I ran with a gang in University Point. We called ourselves the UP Deathclaws. For kicks we'd terrorize anyone that we thought was a synth.A1a
408{Sad} We kept egging each other on. Started with some property damage graduated to some beat downs. Then, inevitably, a lynching.A1b
409{Somber} The Claw's leader was convinced we'd finally found and killed a synth. Looking back, I'm not so sure.Player Default: I'll withhold judgment until you finish.A1c
410000F762CPlayer Default: I'll withhold judgment until you finish.{Somber} Thanks.Deacon: So I turned my back on my "brothers" - broke all contact. Time passed, I became a farmer, if you can believe that. Then one day I found someone.A1a
411000F762BPlayer Default: Why you're telling me this? What game are you playing?{Defiant} It's called a confession. Good for the soul or something.Deacon: So I turned my back on my "brothers" - broke all contact. Time passed, I became a farmer, if you can believe that. Then one day I found someone.B1a
412000F762APlayer Default: I had no idea.{Neutral} No one does.Deacon: So I turned my back on my "brothers" - broke all contact. Time passed, I became a farmer, if you can believe that. Then one day I found someone.X1a
413000F7629Player Default: You killed someone?{Depressed} That one was enough for me. It was his eyes... Those eyes haunt me. Bulging.Deacon: So I turned my back on my "brothers" - broke all contact. Time passed, I became a farmer, if you can believe that. Then one day I found someone.Y1a
414000F7624Player Default: Thanks.{Neutral} So I turned my back on my "brothers" - broke all contact. Time passed, I became a farmer, if you can believe that. Then one day I found someone.A1a
415{Thinking} She saw something in me I didn't know was there. Barbara, well, she was... She just was.Player Default: Leaving the Deathclaws took a lot of courage.A1b
416000F7623Player Default: Leaving the Deathclaws took a lot of courage.{Neutral} Leaving wasn't free - they took it out on my sad hide. But by the time I met Barbara, they'd moved on.Deacon: We were trying for kids, ekeing out a living. Then one day... It turns out my Barbara... She was a synth.A1a

555-001D2870{Joking, but queasy} There goes my appetite.
556{Joking, but queasy} Yeah, sure, dig in, pal.
557{Joking but queasy} You aren't seriously...? Yes, yes, you are.
558001AC86C{Punch up the like} I like it.
559Hah. Good going.
560Huh. What do you know?
561{I don't like that} That doesn't sit right.
562That's the opposite of smart, there.
563{Impressed} Now that's getting it done.
564{To the player, annoyed} Did you really have to do that?
565{Pleased, sincere} Classy move there, boss.
566{Holding back some anger} Do that one more time...
567Yes.
568Yup.
569Alright.
570I'm all over it.
571No.
572Naah.
573I won't do that.
574{Giving the PC something - a present} Incoming, boss.
575For you. Enjoy.
576Thanks!
577Thanks for that.
578On it.
579Will do.
580I'll take care of it.
581Consider it done.
582No problemo.
5830019DB99No can do.
584How would I even get there?
585Can't reach that, boss.
5860016DA21Whoever lived here, ain't here now.
587I hope whoever was here didn't know something we don't.
588I don't think they left too long ago.
5890016DA20I'm telling you it's all about sunglasses. Best 10 cap investment you'll ever make.
590I'm noticing the profound lack of darkness here.
591Sure is bright.
5920016DA1FSomeone has too much time on their hands. This place is spotless.
593To whoever is cleaning here, thanks for making the rest of us look bad.
594Was the Old World this clean? I really can't imagine it.
5950016DA1EDidn't I see this set in a horror film once?
596This is not the time to tell ghost stories.
597This is downright creepy.
5980016DA1DCan you see anything?
599I like shadows. But this is taking it a little too far.
600Did you make that noise? Sorry. A little jumpy.
6010016DA1CNo one's been in here for ages.
602Where does all this dust even come from? The dust faeries?
603It takes a long time for this much dirt to gather.
6040016DA1BRight now, where we are, totally a sniper's dream. I should know.
605Big open spaces. *shudder*
606If I were a sniper I'd be... there... or there. Or even there. Isn't this fun?
6070016DA1ASomebody had security issues.
608If someone builds defenses like that, they're building it for a damned good reason.
609I wonder who or what they're protecting against?
6100016DA19This is some particularly high-calibre disgusting shit here.
611I used to run a steam cleaner store before the bombs fell. So I see this and I think dollar signs.
612Have you no pride, wastelanders? Yuck.
6130016DA18That... *gag* I didn't need to see that.
614I don't have a weak stomache. But... Damn.
615Suddenly I regret eating that mole rat meatloaf.
6160016DA17Look at all the gizmos. That's my term for them. Patent pending.
617I can positively feel the science oozing around here.
618If you ever need to feel sleepy, ask Tinker Tom what they were doing here.
6190016DA16Can you hear me?
620I want earphones. Damn it!
621God, I'm getting a headache.
6220016DA15What a mess. And for me to say that, you know it means something.
623It takes a real slob to achieve this level of filth. It's almost impressive.
624When I retire, I am totally going to set up a maid service. Talk about demand.
6250016DA14Sometimes when we're knee deep in the fight... You can forget places like this exist.
626I miss the Old World.
627She would've liked this.
6280016DA13Anyone up for some meditation?
629I wonder what the acoustics are like here.
630I like it here.
6310016DA12Never let your guard completely down. Even in a place like this.
632The safer I'm supposed to feel, the more paranoid I get.
633It *might* be safe. Just maybe.
6340016DA11Thanks, nose. I really need this feedback.
635Whew. That's an odor.
636This place reeks.
6370016DA10Nine times out of ten, water means radiation poisoning.
638Is now a good time to mention I don't know how to swim? I kid.
639I miss Capital Wasteland. You can actually drink the water there.
640000F94B2There you are.
641Got 'em.
642We're back in business.
643You almost got away.
644Really? So close.
645000F94B1Lost 'em.
646Hopefully they'll stay gone.
647Sneaking off is supposed to be my thing.
648Standing down, I guess.
649Aww, how are we going to kill 'em now?
650000F94B0They were just here, dammit.
651Where'd they go?
652Hey, that's my trick.
653Lost 'em. So that's how it feels.
654You won't get far.
655000F94AFWe live to fight another day. And night. And day. Et cetera.
656Well, that got the blood pumping.
657We sure do a lot of that. Winning, that is.
658Let's see if they left anything useful for us.
659Traveling with you ain't dull, I'll say that.
660You know, you're really good at this. Too good.
661Back before I met you I'd go whole days without massacring a bunch of things. Honest.
662So, new business model. We team up with a mortuary. You see where I'm going with this, right?
663We made that look easy.
664We win. Again.
665Tell your friends, you dead bastard. We'll be here all week.
666000F94AEWell, howdy there.
667You almost got away with that.
668The trick to being hidden is not letting this happen.
669Aww, too bad for you.
670We got a live one.
671000F94ADThey're probably long gone now.
672Yeah, keep running, pal.
673We were fighting just a moment ago, right? We should tell them that.
674You check your pockets? Enemies are always the last place you look.
675I got bored of fighting, anyway.
676000F94ACDon't mean to make you nervous. But I don't think we're alone.
677Seems we have a tail.
678Don't look, but I think we're being watched.
679I heard something.
680We got fun time incoming.
681000F94ABIt's fighting time.
682Fighting again. Great.
683I should have a battle cry.
684Wrong move, pal.
685You know ammo isn't cheap. Can we just pay you to play dead?
686You're going down. Grrr. That's menacing, right?
687Insert something Shakespearian involving death and your inevitable doom here.
688I'm ready for 'em.
689You know I do like long, lazy, dull days, right?
690Time to earn our paychecks. I'm getting paid, right?
691Assaultron. Not good.
692God damned, robots. Tough sons-of-bitches.
693Do we waste bullets on these guys, or not?
694I don't like bugs. But these guys... Kinda cute, right?
695God damned blood bugs. Keep him off me.
696Yeah, because you won't haunt my nightmares, you giant mosquito asshole.
697Ahh. Deathclaw.
698Don't let it get close. Pop a Stealth Boy if you got one.
699We got ferals.
700Anyone got some holy water? I always wanted to try that on them.
701Time to terminate you. Jolly good and all that.
702The butler's going down.
703Time for crab cakes.
704Great. How many clips is it going to take to kill those things?
705Oh no, it's a big one.
706Just once I want radiation to turn something into a giant fluffy bunny instead of the Grand Poobah of all Mirelurks. Hail.
707Do we have to kill these guys?
708Burrow deep and run away, little buddies.
709A Protectron. They're not so bad.
710Time to slag another bot.
711This will be our finest hour. Tales shall be told of our fight versus the rad roaches.
712Rad Roaches. Oh, scary.
713These guys have a hell of a sting.
714Do not let the Radscorps close on you.
715Big game hunting Commonwealth-style.
716Don't underestimate these guys. These ain't your Old World bucks.
717Sentrybot. Be on your toes.
718EMP 'em if you got 'em. Sentrybots are dangerous.
719Flittery little bastards.
720You know this would go a hell of a lot better if you just stood still.
721Oh. Boy.
722Because Super Mutants needed a giant bigger brother.
723Time for a Super Mutant show down.
724Let's see how many head shots you take, mutie.
725Killing these old synths always... Well, if we gotta do it.
726Glory's going to lecture me when I get home. Sorry, pal.
727God damned, turrets.
728Hey you! How do you taunt a turret? Your mother was a pea shooter? See, I got nothing.
729Keep the dogs off me.
730Time to put the bitch down. Get it? Because, it's a dog.
731You're going down... Yow Gee? You Guys? Whatever you are, you're going down.
732These bastards are vicious.
733000F94AANow that's just annoying.
734Go ahead, run. I need a break, anyway.
735Aww, we were having such a good firefight.
736You won't stay hidden for long.
737That wasn't in the script.
738000F94A9Then, lead on.
739Don't worry, I got your back.
740Just don't go wandering off any cliffs.
741Absolutely. And my eagerness is totally unrelated to wanting a smoke break.
742Come grab me when you need me.
743Sure, I'll hang out here.
744Can do.
745Sure thing.
746Your wish is my strong recommendation.
747On it.
748I'll get her done.
749000F94A8Is that it?
750TTFN, then.
751Done already?
752Another time, then.
753Whatever you say.
754000F94A7I thought about it, and no.
755There's things I'll do and things I won't. This is in the latter category.
756You really think I'm going to do that?
757Not happening, pal.
758That would be a negatory. That is a word, right?
759000F94A6Would if I could.
760Naah.
761Not happening, sorry.
762No, sorry.
763No can do.
764000F94A5Hmm?
765Whatcha need?
766Yeah?
767What is it?
768You called?
769What's the word?
770Sure, I can help you out.
771Tell me what you want.
772000F94A4Now, insert slot A into tab B, right?
773I so prefer a gun.
774Directions: apply repetitively until dead.
775This is a little close for comfort.
776000F94A3Company incoming.
777Look out.
778Incoming.
779000F94A2I'm drifting... Feeling a little... Is that a white light?
780I, uh, need a little... yeah.
781Vision's going a little... Keep it together, Deacon.
782000F94A1Bastard got my arm.
783I'm winged, dammit.
784Arm's out of commission, boss.
785Son of a bitch. Leg's hit.
786Goddamit. If we're running, you're doing it without me.
787My leg. Ow.
788Shit. Got blood in my eyes.
789*groan* Headshot. Receiving end.
790Oww. Hit my noggin', boss.
791Oof. Need... a minute... catch breath.
792Took one... to the chest.
793I... oof... Chest.
794000F94A0Ahh... hell...
795000F949FOww.
796Son of a bitch.
797Got me.
798Ahh.
799Oof.
800Mmph.
801Ouch.
802Umpfh.
803000F949EAhhhhhh!
804Mmmmmmph.
805Yyyaaahh!
806000F949DThe trick to this is don't die.
807I was hoping they'd be all dead by now.
808You know, running away is always an option. I won't shoot. Promise.
809This is the part where you're supposed to die.
810Fighting is so 2077.
811Now, this, this is a workout.
812And here I was wanting to spend the day reading Proust. And then you have to ruin it.
813Everyone stop. I got a splinter.
814This is only going to end one way.
815Yeah, so this is happening.
816000F949CPresent for you.
817Care package for you.
818000F7600{Nervous - thinks this is crazy} This is going to be one hell of a ride.
819{Nervous - thinks this is crazy} Am I the only one that thinks this is all insane?
820Maybe we should just try asking the Brotherhood to leave. Nicely.
821{grim} Different players, but it's Switchboard all over again.
822{grim} Dammit, I told Dez too much traffic.
823{grim} Just need to make it out of here, Deacon.
824I'm so over traveling with you.
825You ever worry about karma? Well, you should.
826I'd rather be anywhere but here. With you.
827Let's get this over with.
828{Dripping sarcasm} You're a real class act, you know?
829Taking out the Institute, easy. Now for our encore.
830So what do you do when the bogeyman's dead?
831Don't know about you, but I'm ready for the next chapter.
832The only problem with being a secret organizations is no one knows where to send the dump trucks full of caps.
833We did right by Glory.
834Ah, my favorite meat shield. Heh.
835You in the spotlight, me in the shadows. Look out world.
836Do you ever just feel sorry for the poor bastards that fight us? They don't stand a chance.
837Since we had the Big Talk. Well, it's been easier looking in the mirror.
838What shennanigans are we up to today?
839I must say, this whole partner thing, maybe it wasn't overrated.
840Maybe I really am a synth. Maybe you are, too. How would anyone know?
841We do good work, you know?
842Glad you joined the Railroad. To think, Desdemona almost chased you away. Sheesh.
843It's nice to get out of the Church. You can really get stir crazy down there.
844If all our agents were like you, the Institute would be screwed.
845Up top you got to be careful. Never know when you're being watched.
846Some of the people you meet will be Institute replacements. Synth duplicates. So be careful what you say.
847You got what it takes to go far with us. I can tell.
848Sometimes the direct approach isn't the best to take.
849I'm feeling overdue for some reconstructive surgery. Maybe I'll go blonde next time. I could use some fun.
850Let's stick to the mission, all right.
851The world would be better if there were a lot fewer body bags. Just saying.
852If you got things under control, let me know. I got things I could do.
853You do know the enemy's the Institute, right? Not everyone else.
854I miss traveling alone.
855What is it?
856Need something?
857What's up?
858I'm getting tired of waiting.
859000F75FF{Very serious} Whatever you do - do not help get Liberty Prime online.
860{Very serious warning} Desdemona - hell *I* - won't take kindly to giving those power armored bigots a super weapon.
861Ah, the Brotherhood. Elitism, Power Armor, xenophobia, and racial purging. What's not to like?
862Well, it looks like a lowly mortal took out one of the Brotherhood. I'm waiting for that bolt of lightning to hit us now.
863That bastard Maxson really screwed them up. The Brotherhood used to be the good guys. Well, goodish.
864Those Brotherhood assholes are tough.
865I wonder if the name "Brotherhood of Bigots" was already taken?
866What I'd give for an industrial sized tub of Bug Be Gone.
867Whatever egghead came up with giant bugs should've been nuked.
868You know if the little bug bastards just stood still, it wouldn't be that big a deal.
869Bugs, bugs, and more bugs.
870I hate those little blood suckers.
871All the comforts of a cult without leaving your irradiated crater. Join the Children of Atom.
872Why would anyone ever join the Children? That's what I want to know.
873Capital Wasteland. Exports: purified water, some decent tech, oh, and an insane suicidal cult that worships radiation. Thanks, guys.
874I always feel unclean killing those Atom guys. That's probably just the radiation poisoning talking, though.
875Great more Children of Atom.
876Brr... Deathclaws.
877I do not like 'Claws. Those fast, car flipping, ahh... They just get to me.
878If we're hunting Deathclaws, care to tag in Glory? Please?
879Another Deathclaw down, and another of my 9 lives burned. Yay.
880Deathclaws, love them or leave them, they'll still tear your face off.
881I avoid ferals if I can help it.
882Glory came up with the bright idea of putting ferals in the catacombs. Not a fan.
883More ferals. Great.
884Some jackasses call ferals "ghouls". Like ghouls don't have enough problems.
885Bet you crapped your pants the first time you saw a feral. I know I did.
886Gunners are one step above raiders in my book.
887Don't underestimate the Gunners.
888Who's pulling the Gunners' strings? No one knows.
889Gunners give mercs a bad name. And that's saying something.
890Gunner's have had bounties on me. Well, me under different names and faces. I want to see how many slots I can fill on their most wanted list.
891I would've paid 50 caps to be with you the first time you saw one of the crabs. Must've thought you'd walked into a B movie.
892I hate 'lurks. Piercing their shell is a bitch, let me tell you.
893Hit the 'lurks in their soft spot, if you can. Then grab butter. Yum.
894Can we just steer clear of the Mirelurks next time? They chew through my ammo.
895Because, you know, the world wasn't screwed enough. So sure, bring on the giant nearly indestructible crabs. That'll be good.
896You know, I've always wanted a pet mole rat. I'd call him, "Ziggy."
897I always feel a little bad shooting mole rats. Not bad enough not to eat them, though.
898Mole rat. The other white meat.
899One mole rat is kinda cute. A swarm of them, though, that's trouble.
900When I retire I want to be a mole rat farmer. That'd be the life.
901God damned raiders.
902If there's one thing the Minutemen did that I was OK with, it's curbing the damned raiders.
903The lowest level of Hell is reserved for Raiders. And liars. Uh oh.
904Any time you want to take on more Raiders, I'm in.
905Raiders, raiders, and yet more damned raiders.
906I know those raider can seem like idiots, but you should see their handiwork. We've done some good clearing them out.
907Thanks for all those wacky Old World robots, pal. Just, thanks.
908You can make some decent caps salvaging robots.
909It takes a lot of clips to waste tin cans.
910Boston had a thriving tech industry. Which means we get a double helping of robots.
911You should see what Tinker Tom can do with a robot. It's pretty amazing.
912I think of Super Mutants as toddlers on steroids.
913The FEV Virus. Helping demolish walls and kill civvies since 2077.
914Super Mutants hit like a mac truck.
915Sometimes it's best to just sidestep the 'Muties. They don't have the best eyesight.
916Head shots work best against Super Mutants. A lot a lot of head shots.
917I understand why Glory hates wasting Gen 1s and 2s. A very fuzzy line.
918I'm alright if we have to take out the Gen 1s and 2s. Barely, but alright.
919Tinker records every place we find the early gen synths. He says it'll reveal the Institute's "Master Plan". Yeah, right.
920More synths. Great.
921EMP works well against synths. Well, the early models.
922So let me get this straight. You used to propel big metal birds in the sky and fly in them for thousands of miles? You're braver than I thought.
923Why did they make these airports so big? You could have a whole city in one of them.
924Good salvage in airports.
925One day I'm going to find myself an unlooted brewery and go on one hell of a bender.
926If you find any bottles, let me know. It's party time.
927When you're covered in Super Mutant blood, coming off the Jet DTs, and you're one step ahead of the Institute - it's Beantown Brown time!
928If you got the Institute on your ass a nice cave can be your friend.
929Nice and dark in here. I like it.
930The one thing you can count on in a nice comfy cave is company. It's prime real estate.
931I prefer cave fighting to a shoot out up top. Fewer attack vectors.
932Practically every cave in the Commonwealth has been used by the Railroad at one point or another.
933A nice comfy campsite. You bring the marshmellows?
934How inviting.
935I don't usually make camp in the wild. Attracts all the wrong sort of attention.
936I wonder what they left us.
937Ahh, the smell of industry.
938I saw a vid once of a RobCo factory back in the day. And this is what's left of that world. Sad, really.
939Factories give me the creeps. Never know when some robot's going to say, "hello."
940Imagine what this place was like back then.
941Probably some good salvage in here.
942{Trying to crack wise, but he's seriously unsettled} Remind me why we're crawling around this god-forsaken place?
943{bantery but he's seriously unsettled} I can't believe I followed you here.
944{Trying to crack wise, but he's seriously unsettled} If I keep tromping around here, guess there won't be any little Deacons scurrying around in the future.
945Scalpel. T Clamp. Chainsaw. I totally should've been a surgeon.
946Paging Dr. Feelgood. Your car's parked under an A-Bomb.
947You can usually find a few stimpacks in a place like this.
948If you're not careful Carrington will send you to places like this. Looking for aceda-whozit-whatzit.
949Tinker Tom would have a field day here.
950Who knows what atrocities they dreamed up here.
951It's time for science. Yay.
952There's got to be some lab somewhere that was working to, you know, help people. I haven't found it yet.
953Train stations make good hidey holes.
954Back in the day, places like this would've been completely packed. Hard to imagine so many people.
955All aboard. Rad roach station.
956Trains. Everyone likes trains, right?
957Choo choo. That's what they sounded like, right?
958Military bases can be dangerous but well worth the risk.
959All the fighting, all the training, and did any of it matter?
960I was a soldier once. Way back west. I'll tell you about it some day.
961A whole country. Unified. Fighting together. Crazy stuff.
962Heads up. Military sites almost always got baddies.
963Can't you just feel the history? Feels sandy to me.
964Another monument. Neat.
965All these monuments around. Boston must've been real important. Or thought it was, at least.
966What did people do here? PAM once tried telling me and I still have no idea.
967What the hell's a TPS report anyway?
968Desperation, petty politics, and watercoolers. Joy.
969So people seriously spent 9-10 hours a day in places like this?
970Offices usually are kind of lacking on salvage. Every now and then you get lucky, though.
971Now we just need a picnic basket.
972Open space. Fun.
973Maybe we should get some mirelurk steaks, Nuka-Cola, Fancy Lads, and have a cookout.
974Must've been nice to hang out here without worrying about being sniped.
975Do we have to enter the big open spaces? Should I just wear my Bullseye jacket to make it easier for them?
976Look at all that rock.
977Is now a good time to mention I don't like heights. Getting near the edge around here. Ahh.
978Maybe we should stay away from the ledges here? That'd be good.
979This is my element. Civilization.
980If we find people just act like you belong. Works for me.
981So many little towns all over the place. There must've been thousands of people that lived in the Commonwealth back then.
982We come across anyone, remember, you do the talking. I can be your mute friend "Dingo."
983I was raised just over there. True story. Lots of fond memories over there by that... uh, thing. Yeah.
984This is more like it. Limited site lines, debris. Easy to lose yourself here.
985One day we'll take back this city.
986Maybe I should change my outfit. I want to be wearing my Sunday best if we meet people, after all.
987Plenty of good places to go around here. The city's full of people.
988You know, I happen to be in possession of the deed to a bridge around here. I'll make you a great deal for it.
989So much junk. So many possibilities.
990It's a scavvers paradise here.
991Remember, fill your pockets with all the goodies. Then we can slowly crawl out. Good times.
992So, what did we learn in school today, Timmy? "Nuclear war sucks."
993So teachers, all they did was teach, right? They didn't farm or run shops or run guns on the side? Wow.
994I've read a few textbooks. Did everyone seriously learn calculus back then? Were you guys planning for an invasion of math-letes?
995Ah, another kiddie prison. 13 year sentences for everyone.
996Yo ho, ho, right?
997Mirelurks and raiders favor hunks of junk like this.
998After we beat the Institute and free all the synths, we need to take to the seas in an epic adventure. You can have the cool hat.
999So people used to take tubs like this into the ocean? Crazy.
1000Oh, hello itty bitty world. I feel sick.
1001You know, the ground's a pretty sensible place to be. Right?
1002Why'd they make this place so tall?
1003And people lived up here? Were they nuts?
1004Let's see his selection.
1005I call dibs on any hats. I love a good hat.
1006We have a few "friends" that own shops. Good luck getting a discount, though.
1007Ooh, sale.
1008See anything cool?
1009Deep underground, far away from the Watcher's, uh, watching eyes.
1010Every base we've had has been deep underground. PAM says its safer that way.
1011Another fabulous warehouse. Exciting.
1012In a pinch, you can crash in a warehouse for a night.
1013Not a bad place for a rendezvous.
1014Boxes, boxes, everywhere.
1015So much junk.
1016This is nice. True, the water's irradiated and there's probably 'lurks everywhere. But still nice.
1017You got a surf board?
1018At one time, Tinker hatched a plan to ship synths overseas. For some reason, we went with plan B.
1019This must've been a hell of a place to vacation back in the day.
1020Watch out for Mirelurks in the water. They can sneak up on you.
1021You came from one of these, right?
1022I grew up in a Vault. I was a morale officer. How am I doing, boss?
1023Rumor is Vault-Tec was running experiments on their residents. That'll get you some customer satisfaction.
1024Alright, Vault's are now my new favorite place.
1025It's hard not to feel safe here. Thick door, buried forever. The Institute, who?
1026You ever wonder if, right now, we're living in our glory days.
1027What do friends do together these days, anyway? Poker? Camp fires? Mani petis?
1028A stealth boy, my best pal, and a world full of danger... This is the good life.
1029Can you ever truly escape your past? God, I hope so.
1030I'm new to this "friends" thing. There's perks right? Like, can I take out a loan? Say, 100,000 caps. I'll get it back to you. Promise.
1031Shaun is out there. And together we'll find him. That's a promise.
1032Did I have you going about being a synth? You'd be amazed at how many people fall for that.
1033Since we're a team, you think we could use a code name? Red Orchard? Or... Code Violet? Or... the Death Bunnies. That'll confuse them.
1034Hey, I could be a synth. I could be the best damn synth that ever synthed.
1035The open road isn't as bad with a buddy.
1036You should've seen the Railroad before the Switchboard. We had triple the agents we have now. We'll get there again.
1037So, obviously I'm not going to risk my life for a... radio. But a Gen 1? Or Gen 2? Where to draw the line, huh?
1038I'm used to running my ops solo. But this isn't too bad.
1039I like the way you look out for your fellow man. A lot of people would take the easy way out.
1040Don't ever let your guard down. When you do, inevitably that's when everything goes to hell.
1041Instinct is a powerful tool in our business. Rely on it, train it up. It'll save your life. Promise.
1042I've had this mug for too long. Might be time for a new face.
1043Please, you do the talking. If I pick anything up, I'll let you know afterwards.
1044The Commonwealth can be the enemy just as much as the Institute. We've lost plenty of synths to hate mongers.
1045I never really much cared for the Minutemen. The idea sounds great. But you give small men big power and sometimes you'll pay for it.
1046Keep your eye out for Rail Signs. Besides the goodie bags tourists and agents have left valuable intel.
1047A lot of our people help us once, maybe twice a month. If that. You've jumped right into the deep end.
1048This partnering up. It's weird. Sometimes I just want to pop a Stealth Boy and bug out. Not really an option now.
1049I wish Dez would green light the occasional mission to help out humans. Sometimes just a little bit of help goes a long way.
1050You know, sometimes you really get on my nerves.
1051Maybe you should take someone else out next time. I think Glory would like traveling with you.
1052Some of these missions would be a lot easier by myself.
1053Every time an innocent gets caught in a crossfire, the Railroad's job gets that much tougher.
1054You know, if you helped people more you'd be a potent force for good out there.
1055You Pre-War types really did a number on the place. Hats off.
1056Ever wish you just hit the snooze button instead of thawing out to this?
1057There's too few good men left. The Commonwealth just chews them up and spits them out.
1058{Mumbling to himself} Sometimes the cure is worse than the disease.
1059{Controlling anger} My initial estimation of you was off. Way off.
1060The Railroad accepts all types. Even people like you.
1061The company I keep sometimes.
1062You don't really need me, right? I'd love to go solo.
1063I didn't think anyone would get on my nerves more than Glory.
1064You're just feeding our enemies ammunition in their PR campaign against us.
1065You ever hear of the Golden Rule? Didn't think so.
1066So many mistakes...
1067C'mon, sun. You can't stay up forever.
1068Ah, the cover of night. My dear friend.
1069Night time is the only time I feel I can breathe easy.
1070Keep an eye to the sky. Never know when the Watchers are around.
1071All this sunlight. I just feel exposed.
1072The sun's coming. Keep an eye out for the Watchers. Party time's over.
1073You know what, rain gets a bad rap. It's not so bad. Now, mud on the otherhand...
1074Did I ever tell you about the time I was in Capital Wasteland? Now there's a tale.
1075I'm thinking next time I go to town I'll dress up as a Mr. Handy. If I pull that off I'll be a legend.
1076If we take out the Institute someday, I wonder what we'd do. Hell, synths got it bad enough even without them. It'd keep us busy.
1077I'm in the mood for... some Blamco Mac n' Cheese. Or maybe mirelurk steaks with salsa. Mmmm.
1078The Brotherhood. In Capital Wasteland, they really weren't bad. But now.
1079I really want to know how the Big One started. What idiot fired first? Why? What the hell did they think they'd gain?
1080The big three for predicting people: caps, beliefs, and ego. Get a handle on what's driving someone and you know where you stand.
1081I'm convincing the next raw recruit I'm actually President Eden. Think I can pull it off?
1082You really like to wander, don't you? I've seen more of the 'Wealth with you than I have in the rest of my years combined.
1083The way you just walk right out in the open. It's a wonder you're head hasn't been blown off by a sniper. Just saying.
1084You getting the hang of the Railroad yet? We're one big dysfunctional family. With guns.
1085Sometimes it's hard to take Dez seriously. I remember her when she was a green recruit.
1086I'm a sucker for those Old World books. It must've been something living back then.
1087One time, I got a face change and was a girl for a few months. You should've seen the looks back at HQ.
1088One day the Railroad's number will be up. I thought that day had come at the Switchboard. I can't shake the feeling we're living on borrowed time.
1089000BDE27With you overloaded and all, let me take this chance to read my unabridged copy of "War and Peace" at you.
1090How can you even walk like that?
1091I could, I guess, carry some of that for you.
1092Are you trying to impress someone? C'mon, drop some of that.
1093I'm surprised you can even walk with all that.
1094000BBDFAYou might want to cover up. Or not.
1095Your fashion choice there, that takes some chutzpah.
1096Seriously, you're not cold?
1097000BBDF9What we building today?
1098Can you build me a mansion? Casa del Deacon.
1099You've got a real knack for construction.
1100000BBDF8That right there is what we in the business call a land mine. Ouch.
1101It generally works better if you avoid those.
1102Who doesn't like mines, right?
1103000BBDF7C'mon in, the water's glowing.
1104Yay. Slime.
1105Let's get the dog paddling over with.
1106000BBDF6Nice moves there.
1107000BBDF5Find anything interesting?
1108As long as you don't get caught, game on, my friend.
1109I've been known to peek in a few pockets. From time to time.
1110Whatcha find?
1111Don't get too greedy or you'll get caught.
1112000BBDF4Hey, take what the market'll bear, right?
1113You think they'd pay more?
1114I'd call it there. I'm not sure if we're going to get more.
1115Take them for all they're worth.
1116Ask for a pony, too. That would be cool.
1117000BBDF3So the next beer's on you, right?
1118Keep racking up your bank account and I might need to teach you a little game I call "poker."
1119Not a bad payout.
1120It's refreshing getting paid. The stoic attaboys from Dez, really not as much fun.
1121Cha-Ching.
1122You ever want to fill a bathtub with caps?
1123000BBDF2I'm a fan of Grognak myself. What will that wacky barbarian do next?
1124Any good?
1125That issue's one of my favorites.
1126000BBDF1It's Rad Away time.
1127Check in with Carrington. The bastard will charge you for it, but he can decontaminate you.
1128Rad sickness. That's a good look.
1129000BBDF0You know that staticky sound. It means we should get the hell out of here.
1130Ahh, radiation, you unbelievable bastard.
1131That's not a good sound. Let's move it.
1132We're sucking up rads here.
1133Unless you want me to stick you on top of the Railroad's christmas tree, let's go.
1134Great. I didn't need to have more children.
1135000BBDEFOh. Can you move?
1136Oh, that doesn't look good.
1137Did it hit an artery?
1138000BBDEEShit. You OK in there?
1139Woah. I thought I lost you there.
1140Goddamned headshots.
1141000BBDEDOh, that's got to hurt.
1142Your arm OK?
1143Eww... That's got to sting.
1144000BBDECNow things are getting interesting.
1145You're pretty handy with that bobby pin.
1146000BBDEBWith skills like that, remind me to show you a couple places.
1147That is some precision picking there.
1148Take that, lock.
1149Now I'm feeling all sorts of uncomfortable about my locker back at HQ.
1150No lock will stand before us.
1151000BBDEAYou didn't just do that? Are you insane?
1152Is there something wrong with you?
1153Those people weren't hurting anyone.
1154000BBDE9You can do that? You got to tinker with my guns next.
1155That was some fine work there. It even looks deadlier.
1156I could spend hours fiddling with my gun like that. It could save your life.
1157000BBDE8That'll add some extra oomph to your armor.
1158Hey, the more firepower you can absorb the better.
1159Fixing up your armor's always a wise investment.
1160000BBDE7I love Old World widgets. Worth a fair amount, too.
1161000BBDE6I don't know if even a scavver would take that.
1162You might want to focus on the valuable salvage. You'll break your back carrying worthless scrap.
1163That's not even worth picking up, boss.
1164000BBDE5Whew. Now that's impressive.
1165000BBDE4Ahh, the time honored tradition of looting.
1166You might want to wipe off the blood on anything you find there.
1167We could always use some more ammo.
1168You're really thorough, you know that?
1169Anything interesting on 'em?
1170Whenever you're done corpse squatting, I'm good to go.
1171000BBDE3I can't believe you survived that jump. You got thrill issues.
1172000BBDE2Aww, who's a good doggy?
1173Glad you're taking care of the mutt.
1174Nothing sadder than a hurt dog. Thanks, pal.
1175000BBDE1That... feels... better. Thanks, pal.
1176That'll fix me right up.
1177Better living through chemistry.
1178000BBDE0That looks technical.
1179I never had the patience to much around with terminals.
1180You done with that yet?
1181Try "1234." That's hacking gold, there.
1182You and Tinker Tom should compare notes.
1183Ahh, terminals. It's like the Old World flipping us off all over again.
1184000BBDDFYeah. Heights. This'll be "fun."
1185You know, there's a lot to be said about good old terra firma, right? Right?
1186This thing is safe, right?
1187000BBDDENow there's a fashion statement.
1188I guess subtlety just went out the window.
1189My, how armored you look.
1190000BBDDDHey, boss, you mean to drop that?
1191Pass it my way, I happen to like caps.
1192You know that's worth something, right?
1193000BBDDCEverything looks better at the bottom of a glass, right?
1194I've been known to partake of that, myself.
1195That'll take the edge off.
1196000BBDDBYou know you can write that off as a tax deduction?
1197Nice thought. Hope we don't wind up needing it, though.
1198Ahem. If you're giving stuff away, you know, there's a few things I'd like. A jumbo jet, a solid gold machinegun, my own talk radio station.
1199000BBDDAHey, puppy's not looking good.
1200Help the mutt.
1201Hang in there, Dogmeat.
1202000BBDD9Easy, tiger. Not everything needs to be shot up.
1203How Wild West of you.
1204And we're shooting at what exactly?
1205000BBDD5You may want to go easy on that.
1206Didn't they have those PSAs back in the day? About drugs and the wacky awesome lifestyle they promote?
1207Now, isn't that just fun to watch. Feeling peppy now?
1208000BBDD4Been partying a little hard, have we? Might want to lay off.
1209There was a time I was on a first name basis with chems. It's better to kiss them goodbye, trust me.
1210I hope your little habit doesn't interfere with things. Right?
1211000BBDD3Shocker. Another fight. Didn't see that coming.
1212Hello, hammer, you know there's another solution to those pesky nails, right?
1213And time for people to bleed. Great.
1214000BBDD1Door A: certain bloody death. Door B: everyone still breathes. You'd think door B would win every now and then.
1215Well, you tried. Can't blame you for that.
1216And here I thought I was getting out of one more bloodbath. Surprise.
1217000BBDD0Well, I'll be. We're not going to leave a trail of corpses. Great.
1218And here I was wearing my ass-kicking boots. Oh well.
1219Situation resolved and no one's lying in a pool of blood. Don't tell Glory.
1220000BBDCFNow doesn't that just give me the warm fuzzies.
1221Going for the whole "hearts and minds" bit?
1222That's so sweet it hurts.
1223000BBDCEPeople got a long memory for being wronged. Just saying.
1224So, it's big stick time?
1225Might makes right, you think?
122600204817Let's see what I got in my pockets.
1227Loading up or loading off?
1228What's mine is yours, pal.
122900085746So here we are. Just soaking in the moment. Nice.
1230Awkward silence or quality time? You be the judge.
1231Formulate that response. Lives are depending on it. Well, not really.
1232So... you watch the game last night?
1233I know I'm not that boring. Right? Don't leave me hanging.
1234Now let's practice our 1000 yard stares.
1235I like to fill long silences like this with my poetic musings.
1236Maybe being on ice that long knocked a few of your marbles around? No offense.
1237This meditation break brought to you by Hubris Comics.

1300-0021B0D2{Solemn / Amused} Valentine's not a bad guy to owe you a favor. Hopefully we can cash it in to find your boy.
1301{Intense - this is a big deal to Deacon / Happy} If the dog can find him, we'll get what we need from Kellogg. Promise.
1302{Vindictive / Confident} We always knew someone was coordinating the Institute's efforts to find the Railroad. Glad we ended the bastard.
1303{Nervous, "i got a bad feeling about this" / Impressed} Back in Capital Wasteland the Brotherhood was a force to be reckoned with. But them plus a giant airship...
1304{A little unsteady, concerned / Concerned} You OK, boss? You're still you, right? You never know, Amari can really do a number on people's noggins.
1305{Tongue-in-cheek, with some real wonder / Impressed} An actual Institute scientist. Albeit, a huge ugly green one. Beggars can't be choosers, I guess.
1306{Urgent / Concerned} Desdemona would kill to have that chip, boss. We need to get it to the Railroad.
1307{A little nervous, masking it with a joke / Impressed} You'll be fine, boss. Tinker Tom's devices usually work. If not, uh, can I have your stuff?
1308{Genuinely relieved / Relieved} Yes! You made it to the Institute and back in one living, breathing peace. And I'm 100 caps richer. Drummer Boy's going to be so pissed.
1309{A little stunned} I can't believe the Brotherhood found us. Thank god you warned everyone in time.
1310{Disbelief, trying to be comical at the end} This is actually happening. Us, we're attacking the Institute? Are we nuts?
1311{Cautionary} Danse seems like a stand up guy. But trust me, not all of the Brotherhood's people you want to meet.
1312{I've got a bad feeling about this} I hope we just didn't do a very bad thing. The Brotherhood's history isn't always pretty.
1313{Cautionary} I hope you know what you're doing, boss. Some of our friends might have some strong... thoughts about the Brotherhood.
1314{Approving} No matter who you're working for, ops like this are good all around.
1315{Very serious} I think we've helped the Brotherhood enough, boss. If they get Liberty Prime operational...
1316{Contempt} See? This is what the Brotherhood's really about.
1317{Bone weary cynicism} Another good man killed because of blind prejudice. Will we ever learn.
1318{Bitter} I think Danse is better off without these assholes.
1319{Firm ultimatum} Point of no return, boss. You get the Brotherhood that part and there will be serious, unavoidable consequences.
1320{All sorts of irony, muttery} So I get to reclaim myself a synth. Desdemona's going to be thrilled with this. But, hey, we got to sell our cover, right?
1321{Wry, muttered to player} Isn't infiltration fun? Think too hard and it'll make your head spin.
1322{Vindictive} I've been looking forward to kicking the Brotherhood's teeth in. I owe them.
1323{Full of irony} Sure, work with the Institute. It'll be great. There's no way that could go wrong.
1324{Banter} Liked your PSA about the great and powerful Institute. You should be a DJ.
1325{Heebie-jeebies} *shudder* Deathclaws. That could've gone very, very badly.
1326{Sarcastic, not sure if he means it} All right, I admit it. Kind of getting the chills here. Taking back Castle for the Minutemen would be pretty cool.
1327{Bravado} Those mirelurks didn't stand a chance. Whose ready for an epic clam bake?
1328{Just fought Godzilla, seriously coming off the adrenaline} Did you see that? With the claws? And the... size? I'm definitely going to need a change of clothes.
1329{Skeptical} It's been a lot of years. Who knows if there's anything in the armory any more.
1330{Gossip} Well, Shaw was right. Who knew the Minutemen had such fun toys?
1331{Impressed} All right, the Railroad's got to get some of that. I'd love to rain down some destruction on the Institute.
1332{Introspective, awe-struck / Thinking} Not many people get to be here. Living history as its written. For the first time possibly ever the Commonwealth's got a blank page to write.
1333{Solemn} Thanks to you.
