- The Institute, in Sublevel 21-D, on one of the lower shelves in the first area after the elevator to the Sublevel.
Dr: Just keep talking if you can, I'm afraid this ...may be rather painful.
K: Don't worry about it, doc.
Dr: Anesthetic would lower your blood pressure too much, and I need you to remain conscious.
K: You already explained all that. It's gonna be worth it, right?
Dr: Oh, most definitely. These implants are much more advanced than anything you've had before. Doctor Walter is very pleased with you. The Gen 3 synth program is finally making progress, thanks to the genetic material you recovered.
K: You talkin' about that kid we got from the vault?
Dr: Yes, a perfectly unspoiled DNA sample. Now this next part is especially delicate so if you could please look straight in to the light.
K: Should everything be purple?
Dr: Hm? Oh, that's just a calibration error. How about now?
Dr: I'm just glad to have a chance to test these on a ...cooperative human subject. Normally the directors are very touchy about allowing this kind of technology outside the Institute. They must find you ...extremely trustworthy.
K: You say these are gonna work, right doc?
Dr: Oh yes. When I say 'test', I simply mean collecting data over time which will be very valuable to making further improvements. This next part may be ...exceptionally painful. Try your best to remain conscious.
