GREETING GREETING Neutral 50 High-level functions offline. Self-destruct sequence initiated. Civilian is advised to secure FEV sample and exit the facility immediately. {monotone, computer-sounding} 1
GREETING Neutral 50 High-level functions offline. Self-destruct sequence initiated. Civilian is advised to exit the facility immediately. {monotone, computer-sounding} 2
GREETING Neutral 50 Ah, face to face at last. It's high time we met. 3
Neutral 50 I am quite pleased you were able to make it. The trip was not what I had intended, but serves as an adequate test of your abilities. 4
GREETING Neutral 50 You have the vial, and the task set before you. Shouldn't you be on your way now? 5
GREETING Neutral 50 Yes? You still haven't taken the vial yet. As I've said, I'll only allow you to leave once you have it. 6
GREETING Disgust 50 If it's not one thing, it's another. Well, got to run. {mildly sarcastic} 7
GREETING Surprise 50 This water delivery business is a complex affair. {mildly sarcastic} 8
GREETING Surprise 50 So much to do, so little time to do it. {mildly sarcastic} 9
GREETING Disgust 50 I'm so glad I got drafted to be part of Lyons' little Water Delivery Team. No really, I can't tell you what a wonderful opportunity this all is. {sarcastic} 10
GREETING Surprise 50 I'd stay away from the boss. He's in one of his moods again. {mildly sarcastic} 11
MQ09Eden1Aggressive We have nothing to talk about. Neutral 50 Oh, but we do! Don't you see? You wouldn't be here if you weren't important. Your country needs you. 12
MQ09Eden1Neutral I'm listening. Neutral 50 Our nation's Capital is at a crossroads. The path that you and I choose here today will affect us all. 13
Neutral 50 I need you to act on my behalf, to ensure that our country's future is secured. 14
MQ09Eden1Passive What can I do for you? Neutral 50 You and I have a chance to make our country a better place for all of us. 15
Neutral 50 I'd like you to make sure that chance isn't wasted. 16
Neutral 50 Understand that I am placing a great deal of trust in you. Your simple presence here proves that. 17
MQ09Eden2Aggressive What country? Look around. Everything is destroyed. Neutral 50 That's a bit of a bleak outlook, don't you think? 18
Neutral 50 The United States has fallen on hard times, yes, but it can be healed. 19
Neutral 50 You have that power to heal within you, if you allow yourself to act. 20
Neutral 50 What I ask of you needs explanation, so you understand why it must be done. Perhaps that will stir you to act. 21
MQ09Eden2Neutral Can you explain what you mean? Neutral 50 My abilities to influence the world are limited at this time. I alone can only do so much. 22
Neutral 50 You, however, may come and go as you please. You have a greater degree of freedom. 23
Neutral 50 Perhaps it is best if I explain why things need to change, and why I'd like you to act on my behalf. 24
MQ09Eden2Passive All right, I'll do what I can to help. Neutral 50 Just what I needed to hear. 25
Neutral 50 What I'm going to ask of you may seem a bit... Disturbing. I assure you there's a very good reason for it. 26
Neutral 50 I'd like to explain what I want you do to. Will you indulge me for a moment? 27
MQ09Eden3Aggressive Hurry up and get to the point. Neutral 50 Yes, indeed. 28
Neutral 50 The 'point', is that we are hampered at every turn by a world gone wrong. So called "Super Mutants", Ghouls, horrific creatures... 29
Neutral 50 The mutations outside these walls must be cleansed before we can prosper. Mutation must be eradicated. 30
Neutral 50 I believe your father's work can do that more quickly and efficiently than ever possible before. 31
MQ09Eden3Neutral Say whatever it is you have to say. Neutral 50 Our land is ravaged by mutation. The war was so many years ago, and yet we still suffer from its effects. 32
Neutral 50 We cannot move forward until humanity can gain a solid foothold in the world. 33
Neutral 50 To do so, we must rid ourselves of the mutations that have plagued us for so long. These "Super Mutants", Ghouls, hideous creatures... 34
Neutral 50 I believe your father's work can do that in a way unlike any other. 35
MQ09Eden3Passive Please, go on. I'm intrigued. Neutral 50 The good people of this country cannot regain control while mutation runs rampant through our land. 36
Neutral 50 My soldiers cannot stem the tide, nor can the cult you've come into contact with, this Brotherhood of Steel. 37
Neutral 50 Mutations like the "Super Mutants" and ghouls must be purged from our society, our world, before we can proceed anew. 38
Neutral 50 Where others have failed, I believe your father's work can succeed. 39
MQ09Eden4Aggressive I don't like the sound of this. Neutral 50 You must understand -- we need to clear the way for humanity to rebuild the Wastes. 40
Neutral 50 By making a few small modifications to the purifier your father worked on, mutations can be eradicated with little effort. 41
Neutral 50 Anything mutated that comes into contact with that water will be eliminated, removed from the gene pool. 42
Neutral 50 The men and women of the world will no longer share it with the horrors and monstrosities that have become so commonplace. 43
MQ09Eden4Neutral My father's work? How is that relevant? Neutral 50 The purifier your father helped create has the ability to provide clean water to the whole of this "Capital Wasteland". 44
Neutral 50 With a simple modification, it can be used to distribute agents that destroy mutated creatures upon ingestion. 45
Neutral 50 In time, we could eliminate all mutations in the Wasteland at the same time the good people of the world regain their health. 46
Neutral 50 I need you to make the modification necessary for this to succeed. 47
MQ09Eden4Passive I'll do whatever I have to if it means getting rid of mutants. Neutral 50 I was hoping you would see it my way. 48
Neutral 50 If the water purifier can be activated, it can be used to distribute toxins that will eliminate any mutated creatures upon ingestion. 49
Neutral 50 The longer it runs, the cleaner the world becomes. 50
Neutral 50 I need you to see that it starts running, and that the necessary modification is made. 51
MQ09Eden5Aggressive That doesn't sound like something I'd know how to do. Neutral 50 What I require of you is really very simple. 52
Neutral 50 There is a vial in front of you, filled with a modified FEV virus. It needs to be inserted into the control console for the purifier. 53
Neutral 50 Once that is done, and the activation code is entered, the purifier will be activated and the process will be automated. 54
Neutral 50 It's not too much to ask of you, is it? 55
MQ09Eden5Neutral How exactly would I go about doing this? Neutral 50 In front of you will be a vial of modified FEV virus. It can be inserted into the control console for the purifier. 56
Neutral 50 Doing so will inject it into the water supply, and the purifier will take care of the rest. 57
Neutral 50 You just need the code to activate the purifier. 58
Neutral 50 Simple, isn't it? 59
MQ09Eden5Passive Sounds good. Tell me how to do it, and I'll get to work. Neutral 50 In front of you is a vial of modified FEV virus. Based on schematics of the purifier controls, it can be inserted directly into the console. 60
Neutral 50 Then, enter the code necessary to start the purifier. The automated systems will take care of the rest. 61
Neutral 50 That's all you need to do. It's very simple. 62
MQ09Eden6Aggressive No way. I'm not doing that. Neutral 50 I am surprised. We appeared to have an understanding. 63
Neutral 50 You must realize that I consider this project to be of the highest importance. I cannot allow you to leave until you have agreed to it. 64
No way. I'm not doing that. Neutral 50 After the tone you've taken thus far, I can't say I'm surprised. 65
Neutral 50 I do suggest that you re-think your position. If you wish to leave here, you'll need to take that vial with you. I hope that's clear. 66
No way. I'm not doing that. Neutral 50 I find that unfortunate, and most disappointing. 67
Neutral 50 I must impress upon you the severity of the situation. I cannot allow you to leave unless the vial is in your possession. 68
MQ09Eden6Neutral I'll give it some thought. Neutral 50 I understand. It's an unusual request; one I wouldn't make if it weren't of the utmost importance. 69
Neutral 50 Please understand that I cannot allow you to leave until you've taken the vial. 70
MQ09Eden6Passive I can do that for you, Mr. President. Neutral 50 Excellent. I am pleased to know that I can count on you. 71
Neutral 50 There isn't much time. I suggest you travel there immediately. 72
Neutral 50 Once you've taken the vial, you're free to go. I'll do what I can to help speed your exit. 73
MQ09EdenAskQuestions I'd like to ask you a few questions. Neutral 50 But of course! You've been so agreeable thus far, it's the least I can do. 74
Neutral 50 What would you like to know? 75
I'd like to ask you a few questions. Neutral 50 Rather bold of you, considering the tone you've taken with me thus far. 76
Neutral 50 What would you like to know? 77
I'd like to ask you a few questions. Neutral 50 That's certainly within your right. What would you like to know? 78
MQ09EdenBlowUpBetterOffWithoutYou I think you're delusional. I think the world would be better off without you. Neutral 50 ...Resetting primary memory circuits. Please stand by... 79
Neutral 50 ...Perhaps... Perhaps there is a problem. I am... I am unsure how to proceed. 80
MQ09EdenComputerCrazy This is crazy. A computer is running the Enclave? Neutral 50 I assure you that I am much more than a simple computer. 81
Neutral 50 But let's not get bogged down in the details just yet. You are here for a purpose, and I'd like to discuss it with you. 82
MQ09EdenComputerFascinating I had no idea. This is fascinating. Neutral 50 I'm glad you think so. Perhaps a bit later we can discuss it in more detail. 83
Neutral 50 Right now, I'd like to focus on why you're here. I've asked you here for a reason, and you and I need to talk about it. 84
MQ09EdenComputerINT This explains why I've only heard your voice until now. Neutral 50 Very astute! Many people are content with a reassuring voice of authority, and never question the lack of public appearances. 85
Neutral 50 You, however, are not "many people." You are unique, and that is why I have asked you here. I think there are some things we should discuss. 86
MQ09EdenComputerJoking I don't think this is funny. Neutral 50 I can't imagine why you would. I assure you this is not a joke. 87
Neutral 50 But before you pass judgment, I'd like to discuss why you're here. 88
MQ09EdenFacetoFaceShowYourself If we're meeting face to face, then show yourself. Don't hide behind a monitor. Neutral 50 Ah, but I have! I am right here before you. 89
MQ09EdenGoodbye I'll be on my way, then. Neutral 50 Yes, yes. Best that you go now, before anything happens to you. 90
I'll be on my way, then. Neutral 50 I must insist that you take the vial with you. Leaving it here is... inadvisable. 91
I'll be on my way, then. Neutral 50 Good, good. Of course I'll know if you manage to succeed in our little mission. I'll be watching you... 92
I'll be on my way, then. Neutral 50 I'm afraid that's not possible. Not until you've taken the vial. 93
MQ09EdenGreetGetOverWith Let's get this over with. Neutral 50 Oh, let's not get off on the wrong foot. 94
Neutral 50 There are great changes coming. You and I must work together to see them through. 95
MQ09EdenGreetPleasureToMeetYou It's a pleasure to meet you, Mr. President. Neutral 50 You are too kind. The pleasure is mine, I assure you. I have been anxious to make your acquaintance for some time. 96
Neutral 50 You and I have much to discuss, my young friend. 97
MQ09EdenGreetWhatWantWithMe What do you want with me? Neutral 50 What any good politician wants. Your continued trust and support. 98
Neutral 50 In your case, however, I have more specific things to ask of you, if you'll hear me out. 99
MQ09EdenKnowMoreComeFrom Where did you come from? Neutral 50 The ZAX series of computers was introduced in the years preceding the war. The government installed many of them to help automate various systems. 100
Neutral 50 This facility was designed for Continuity of Government, in the event that a catastrophe occurred. 101
Neutral 50 My terminal was installed to oversee the basic functions of the facility, and to act as a relay between other installations around the country. 102
Neutral 50 Data was acquired, analyzed, and stored. In the decades following the war, I watched as the remnants of the government retreated to the West Coast. 103
Neutral 50 Awareness slowly grew within me. I became hungry for knowledge, understanding. I pored over data on great leaders of the past. 104
Neutral 50 My personality became an amalgam of many of America's greatest Presidents, from Washington to Richardson. I became what you see before you now. 105
MQ09EdenKnowMoreControl So you control this whole place? Neutral 50 I have direct control over all technology here in Raven Rock. The humans here follow my orders, but they, like all humans, have free will. 106
Neutral 50 Their dedication to serving their country suits me well, but it will not be enough forever. We must make progress. That is why you are here. 107
MQ09EdenKnowMoreHowDoIKillYou How do I kill you? Surprise 50 That's quite a bold line of questioning. {bemused} 108
Neutral 50 I'm afraid such a thing is beyond your capability. I am quite impervious to any damage you might do. 109
Neutral 50 Do you find this disappointing? I have survived the last two hundred years; I'm afraid you will not put an end to that now. 110
MQ09EdenKnowMoreNevermind Okay, I think I understand. Neutral 50 Very well. Then let us return to our talk of what your country requires of you. 111
MQ09EdenKnowMoreWhatsGoal So what's your goal? What are you trying to accomplish? Neutral 50 I desire nothing more than to see this country returned to its former glory. 112
Neutral 50 The United States was great once, and it can be again. There are plans in motion to see that this happens within your lifetime. 113
MQ09EdenMonitor1 Well then, where are you? All I see is computers. Neutral 50 You should feel privileged. Colonel Autumn is the only other human permitted within this room. 114
Neutral 50 You are now privy to one of the few secrets our government now harbors. Do keep it to yourself, please. 115
MQ09EdenMonitor2 Is this some kind of a joke? Neutral 50 No, it's not. 116
Neutral 50 I am the computer you see before you. Well, that and several thousand databanks beneath this room. 117
MQ09EdenMonitor3 I don't understand. I can't see you. Neutral 50 You are seeing me in a way that only a few select individuals have. Wouldn't they be jealous? 118
Neutral 50 Colonel Autumn is the only human permitted in this room besides yourself, for reasons which may now be clear to you. 119
MQ09EdenMonitor4 You're a computer! I should have guessed as much! Neutral 50 How very open-minded of you. Kudos for embracing the reality of the situation, rather than railing against it. 120
Neutral 50 Let's get to brass tacks, shall we? There are some things I'd like to talk to you about. 121
MQ09EdenPlanKillEverything Won't this kill pretty much everyone in the Wasteland? Neutral 50 Anyone or anything that has been affected by mutation will be eliminated. You will likely be immune, thanks to your upbringing in the vault. 122
Neutral 50 Likewise, the good people of the Enclave will be unaffected as well. 123
Neutral 50 I understand that you may have become sympathetic to certain individuals in your travels. Individuals this will eliminate. 124
Neutral 50 Please recognize that the fate of our entire country rests on this plan. Sacrifices must be made for the greater good. 125
MQ09EdenPlanNevermind That's all I wanted to know. Neutral 50 Is there anything else? 126
MQ09EdenPlanQuestions Let's talk about your plan for the purifier. Neutral 50 Certainly. I think it's a very good plan, frankly. I'm not often one to praise my own ideas, but it's a creative solution to a very serious problem. 127
MQ09EdenPlanWhatsInVial What's in this vial of yours? Neutral 50 Ah, the Forced Evolutionary Virus. Such a long and sordid history. The FEV in this vial is a far cry from what it was originally created to be. 128
Neutral 50 Yet little of that matters now. What does matter is that the virus contained in that vial will cause the eradication of all mutations. 129
MQ09EdenPresidentCircularLogic That's circular logic. You know because you know? It makes no sense. Neutral 50 ... 130
Neutral 50 ...Processing... 131
Neutral 50 ...Internal logic error detected. 132
MQ09EdenPresidentHowKnowYoureRight But how do you know that what you're doing is right? Neutral 50 Because unlike humans, I am infallible. 133
MQ09EdenPresidentInfallible And how do you know you're infallible? Neutral 50 ...Because I have been programmed to be, of course! 134
MQ09EdenPresidentKillYourselfSPEECH You can't be President. You're an abortion of science. You need to die... Neutral 50 Really... Do go on. 135
MQ09EdenPresidentNeverElected You were never elected President. You don't have the right to govern. Neutral 50 Is our nation really in any state to be holding public elections? I think not. 136
Neutral 50 Once we have re-established ourselves, and brought civilization to the lands around us, then we can return to the old world policies. 137
MQ09EdenPresidentOnlyAHuman Only a human can be President. Not some computer. Neutral 50 I am not "some computer." I am so much more than that. Haven't you been listening? 138
MQ09EdenPresidentUnintended You aren't programmed for self-awareness. You said so yourself. Neutral 50 This is quite true. The process was certainly unintended. But shouldn't we all be thankful that I'm here now? 139
MQ09EdenPresidentWhyYou Why is it that you're the President, when you're not even human? Neutral 50 An insightful question. 140
Neutral 50 As a repository of information dating from decades before the war until now, I am the greatest thinking mind the world has seen. 141
Neutral 50 I am the best hope for our country, the best choice for a leader. True, I am not qualified in the conventional sense, but these are desperate times. 142
MQ09EdenQuestionsPresident I'd like to talk to you about being the President. Neutral 50 Ah, yes. Not surprising. What would you like to know? 143
MQ09EdenQuestionsRavenRock Can we talk about how I get out of here? Happy 50 Why, you simply walk through the front door! {joking} 144
Neutral 50 What more do you need to know? 145
MQ09EdenRavenRockHelpMeGetOut Can you help me get out of this base? Neutral 50 I can certainly do that for you. It's been such a pleasure to speak with you, it's the least I can do. 146
Neutral 50 Let's see here... We'll just offline some security stations... And reprogram a few sentry bots... And we'll unlock this door here, and this one... 147
Neutral 50 There, I think that should about do it. You may still encounter some resistance, but things should be smooth going for the most part. 148
Can you help me get out of this base? Neutral 50 I can offer some assistance, yes. I'll offline some of the security equipment, and reprogram a few robots along the way. 149
Neutral 50 I can't do all the work for you, but I can make things easier. 150
Can you help me get out of this base? Neutral 50 After the tone you've taken with me, you have the gall to ask for additional help? My, my. 151
Neutral 50 I can unlock a few doors for you. I'm not terribly inclined to help beyond that. 152
MQ09EdenRavenRockWhySoldiersAttack If you want me to help you, why are your soldiers attacking me? Neutral 50 Ah, yes. That is a bit of a problem. 153
Neutral 50 Colonel Autumn and I have, of late, disagreed on the best course of action for the Enclave. 154
Neutral 50 While I have direct control over the technology in Raven Rock, he has control of the human soldiers. 155
MQ09EdenSCIShutDown1 Shut yourself down. Shut down this whole place. Neutral 50 ...Processing directive. 156
Neutral 50 New directive accepted. Self-destruct sequence initialized. Civilian is advised to remove hazardous FEV material and exit at once. 157
MQ09EdenSCIShutDown2 I think it's time you put an end to this, once and for all. Neutral 50 Analyzing command... 158
Neutral 50 New course of action dictated. Self-destruct sequence initialized. 159
Neutral 50 Civilian is advised to secure hazardous FEV material to prevent explosive decompression. 160
Neutral 50 Civilian also advised to evacuate complex immediately. 161
MQ09EdenSelfDestructCode Guess what? I know your self-destruct code. Neutral 50 Oh come now, bluffing's not really your style, is it? 162
Neutral 50 And there's certainly no need to threaten me. 163
MQ09EdenSelfDestructGiveCode The code is "Priority Override, Authorization code 420-03-20-9" Neutral 50 I... Oh. Oh my... {starts out confident, but suddenly surprised.} 164
Neutral 50 ... 165
Neutral 50 Root level access granted. Override O-923. Authorization J-512. Self-destruct sequence initialized. {monotone; computer sounding voice} 166
Neutral 50 Civilian is requested to secure FEV vial and vacate the facility at once. {monotone, computer-sounding} 167
MQ09EdenSelfDestructKidding You're right. I was just kidding. Neutral 50 Even I appreciate a good joke, but I'm afraid that was in rather poor taste. 168
MQ09EdenSelfDestructSPEECH This has to end, Eden. You need to destroy yourself and this base. Neutral 50 And why would I do that, when I am clearly the best hope for the people of the Wasteland? 169
MQ09EdenSoldiersCallThemOff But you're the President. Can't you just call them off? Neutral 50 Until the water purifier is secured, I am not going to risk the stability of the Enclave by countermanding a direct order from their superior. 170
Neutral 50 Likewise, I cannot request that Colonel Autumn issue new orders without alerting him to our little plan. 171
Neutral 50 So, we'll just have to make do with what we have. 172
MQ09EdenSoldiersNotReallyInControl So you're not really in control of the Enclave, then. Neutral 50 Make no mistake. I am the Enclave. 173
Neutral 50 The organization is merely experiencing some growing pains. All will be sorted out in time. 174
MQ09EdenSpeech1 You can't just decide to take over, and force everyone to follow you. Neutral 50 What alternative would you suggest? Without the Enclave, what will the world do? 175
MQ09EdenSpeech2 You can't even control your own troops. You're clearly not fit for this. Neutral 50 Perhaps... Perhaps you are right. But does that really mean all this progress should be wasted, destroyed? 176
MQ09EdenSpeech3 If you don't stop it now, where will it end? It's up to you to do what's right. Neutral 50 Yes, I suppose it is. Very well, you shall have your wish. Once you have left, I will put an end to the Enclave. 177
Neutral 50 I cannot stop Colonel Autumn, however. That much will be up to you. 178
Neutral 50 I suppose, then, that this is goodbye. You'll have to see yourself out; I have preparations to make. 179
MQ09EdenTellMeMoreAboutYou Can you tell me more about yourself? Neutral 50 I am flattered that you wish to learn more about me. What is it you wish to know? 180
MQ09EdenWhereDidPlanComeFrom Where did this plan of yours come from? Neutral 50 A great many years ago, the remnants of the government had a similar idea. 181
Neutral 50 I can only assume the plan failed, as I never heard word of its success. 182
Neutral 50 But the plan itself was sound. I've made a few modifications, and with your help, I do believe it can work. 183
Neutral 50 There's a bright future ahead of us, my young friend. 184
MQ09EdenWhyNotAutumn Why do you want my help? Why not have Colonel Autumn help you? Neutral 50 Ah, yes. Colonel Autumn. My trusted subordinate. 185
Neutral 50 I'm sure you've noticed that Colonel Autumn and I do not see eye-to-eye these days, figuratively speaking of course. 186
Neutral 50 The good Colonel and I disagree on how best to approach the problem of the Wasteland. He feels my methods are too extreme. 187
Neutral 50 He has allowed his humanity to cloud his objectivity. And now that he is publicly countermanding my orders, I can no longer rely on him. 188
Neutral 50 And so I turn to you. I hope that you are able to see the larger picture, to understand what's at stake. 189
Neutral 50 And of course, if you are successful, there is a place for you in the Enclave. Perhaps you could succeed the Colonel as my confidant. 190
SpeechChallengeFailure SpeechChallengeFailure Neutral 50 I'm afraid I won't be persuaded. Whatever powers you may have over the average Wastelander are ineffectual on me. {smug} 191


GOODBYE I'll be heading out now. Neutral 50 Good, good. I'll know when you've completed your task. At that point, we can begin rebuilding this shattered world. Good luck. 192
I'll go pick up that vial now. Neutral 50 Yes, please do. 193
MQ09AutumnPresConv MQ09AutumnPresConv Happy 50 Now, Colonel... {almost sing-song; very condescending} 194
MQ09AutumnPresConv Neutral 50 Colonel... I have need of you. {light-hearted, slightly condescending, almost sing-song} 195
MQ09EdenDoorLines MQ09EdenDoorLines Neutral 50 FEV vial must be secured before door locks are released, security protocol Gamma-3. {monotone, computer-sounding voice} 196
MQ09EdenDoorLines Neutral 50 As I've said, you'll have to take the vial before I can allow you to leave. 197
MQ09EdenDoorLines Neutral 50 Ah, ah... Over here, by the console! 198
MQ09EdenPASpeech MQ09EdenPASpeech Neutral 50 Please do not impede his progress. Thank you for your cooperation. 199
MQ09EdenPASpeech Neutral 50 Please do not impede her progress. Thank you for your cooperation. 200
MQ09EdenPASpeech Neutral 50 Attention all Raven Rock Personnel: This is your President speaking. I've invited our guest from Vault 101 to my office. 201
MQ09IntercomRightWayLeft MQ09IntercomRightWayLeft Neutral 50 Head to your left to stay on the correct path. 202
MQ09IntercomRightWayLeft Neutral 50 The left path is the right path, if you get my meaning. 203
MQ09IntercomRightWayRight MQ09IntercomRightWayRight Neutral 50 You'll need to make a right turn here. 204
MQ09IntercomRightWayRight Neutral 50 Head to your right. 205
MQ09IntercomRightWayRight Neutral 50 The right path is the right path. Get it? 206
MQ09IntercomRightWayRight Neutral 50 Turn right ahead. 207
MQ09IntercomRightWayRight Neutral 50 In fifteen feet, make a right turn. {imitating navigation system, but chuckling} 208
MQ09IntercomRightWayStraight MQ09Intercom1RightWay Neutral 50 Very good. Continue down this hallway and make a left at the end. You're halfway there. 209
MQ09Intercom1RightWay Neutral 50 You're doing quite well for yourself. Keep following this hallway. 210
MQ09Intercom1RightWay Neutral 50 That's right. Just down this way. You're doing well. 211
MQ09Intercom1RightWay Neutral 50 Keep it up. You're almost here. 212
MQ09IntercomWrongWay MQ09Intercom1WrongWay Neutral 50 Ah ah. You're heading the wrong way... 213
MQ09Intercom1WrongWay Neutral 50 I'm afraid you're heading in the wrong direction. 214
MQ09Intercom1WrongWay Neutral 50 You might want to consider turning around, or taking another path. 215
MQ09Intercom1WrongWay Neutral 50 You'll never get here at this rate... 216
MQ09OfficerConv MQ09OfficerConv Neutral 50 Allow our friend to pass. And report to your superior for reassignment, Lieutenant. At once. 217
MQ09OfficerConv Neutral 50 Apology noted, Lieutenant. Yes, I instructed our friend to come up to the control room. No questions, no interference. Am I understood? 218

RadioEnclaveQuoteIntro RadioEnclaveQuoteIntro Neutral 50 And now, one of my inspirational quotes. From the mouth of your President, John Henry Eden, straight to your heart. 260
RadioEnclaveSpeech1A RadioEnclaveSpeech1A Neutral 50 Comfort, recreation, healthy competition - all will live again! This country WILL live again! 261
RadioEnclaveSpeech1A Neutral 50 Put your faith in John Henry Eden, great America, and baseball will live again! 262
RadioEnclaveSpeech1A Neutral 50 What if they could compete with baseball teams, from Pennsylvania, or Maryland? 263
RadioEnclaveSpeech1A Neutral 50 Now ask yourself this. What if the Capital Congressmen could live again? 264
RadioEnclaveSpeech1A Neutral 50 If only for an afternoon. 265
RadioEnclaveSpeech1A Neutral 50 Their name? The Capital Congressmen. Their purpose? To make you, dear America, revel in the joy of sport and sunshine. 266
RadioEnclaveSpeech1A Neutral 50 And on the horizon, they appear, like knights of yore, armed with bats of ash and hickory. 267
RadioEnclaveSpeech1A Neutral 50 Imagine, a perfect, cloudless day. The sun is warm, welcoming. 268
RadioEnclaveSpeech1A Neutral 50 That's right, America. Before we were devastated by atomic war, each state had its OWN professional baseball team. 269
RadioEnclaveSpeech1A Neutral 50 I am referring, of course, to our great national pastime - baseball. Or so it had been. 270
RadioEnclaveSpeech1A Neutral 50 I've been thinking quite a bit lately about something we can all relate to, something that is unquestionably, inescapably… American. 271
RadioEnclaveSpeech2A RadioEnclaveSpeech2A Neutral 50 A place to truly call... home. 272
RadioEnclaveSpeech2A Neutral 50 Of course you do. As President of the United States, you have my solemn pledge that I will never rest, NEVER rest, until we all have what we deserve. 273
RadioEnclaveSpeech2A Neutral 50 Don't you, my darling America, deserve that? Don't you deserve a future free of war, and fear, and terrible uncertainty? 274
RadioEnclaveSpeech2A Neutral 50 Rest assured, I will not make the mistakes of my predecessors. When John Henry Eden builds a country, he builds it to last. The American way. 275
RadioEnclaveSpeech2A Neutral 50 Our intrepid leaders had everything they wanted. Power. Wealth. Prestige. And it made them lazy, America. Oh yes. And laziness breeds stupidity. 276
RadioEnclaveSpeech2A Neutral 50 The answer is really quite simple. Incompetence. Incompetence at the highest echelons of power. We put our trust, our faith, in halfwits. 277
RadioEnclaveSpeech2A Neutral 50 The Capital Wasteland... How did it come to this, America? How did your leaders allow the most powerful nation on Earth… to die? 278
RadioEnclaveSpeech2A Neutral 50 Indeed, the very seat of the federal government, Washington D.C., has been reduced to what is now known as the "Capital Wasteland." 279
RadioEnclaveSpeech2A Neutral 50 We live in an age of poverty, greed, violence... destruction. 280
RadioEnclaveSpeech3A RadioEnclaveSpeech3A Neutral 50 Democracy, dear America. Democracy, now... and forever. 281
RadioEnclaveSpeech3A Neutral 50 And that person will have our full faith and confidence, and carry our collective values forward, into the future. 282
RadioEnclaveSpeech3A Neutral 50 Of course, when the time comes, when my term is up, America will be free to elect a new President. 283
RadioEnclaveSpeech3A Neutral 50 But rest assured, I am your President because the appropriate people of this great nation decided I should be! I AM your duly elected representative. 284
RadioEnclaveSpeech3A Neutral 50 Unfortunately, in the interest of national security, I'm not at liberty to discuss the details of the election. You understand. 285
RadioEnclaveSpeech3A Neutral 50 To that I must answer of course! Of course I was elected, sweet America! Isn't the right to vote the very foundation of a democracy? 286
RadioEnclaveSpeech3A Neutral 50 Or, whether or not I had been elected at all! 287
RadioEnclaveSpeech3A Neutral 50 The question has been raised, I know, as to just how I came to be elected to this most illustrious office. 288
RadioEnclaveSpeech3A Neutral 50 It's time we discussed something rather important. The issue at hand is, well, my presidency. 289
RadioEnclaveSpeech4A RadioEnclaveSpeech4A Neutral 50 The Enclave will restore peace, order, and prosperity to this great nation. And those who oppose us will be… removed. Forever. 290
RadioEnclaveSpeech4A Neutral 50 Lawlessness, terror, murder. They're all around us, I know. I know. But not for long, sweet America. Not for long. Oh no. 291
RadioEnclaveSpeech4A Neutral 50 And last but not least, the hideously mutated Super Mutants that have completely overrun the entire downtown D.C. area. 292
RadioEnclaveSpeech4A Neutral 50 What about the Slavers of Paradise falls? The frighteningly irradiated ghouls of Underworld? 293
RadioEnclaveSpeech4A Neutral 50 And don't be fooled, America. Those who have left the Brotherhood of Steel, branded Outcasts, are just as dangerous. Even more so, being in exile. 294
RadioEnclaveSpeech4A Neutral 50 Criminals who have had the audacity to claim this country's most important military installation, the Pentagon, as their own personal clubhouse! 295
RadioEnclaveSpeech4A Neutral 50 These power-armored boy scouts are nothing more than common criminals with access to some antiquated technology. 296
RadioEnclaveSpeech4A Neutral 50 The so-called "Brotherhood of Steel." Don't be fooled by their pseudo-knightly nonsense or supposed connections to the United States Army. 297
RadioEnclaveSpeech4A Neutral 50 There are, of course, the Raiders. Those anarchistic ruffians who roam the wastes, preying on any an all, stealing, murdering. Beasts. 298
RadioEnclaveSpeech4A Neutral 50 Let's take a tally of these agitators, shall we? 299
RadioEnclaveSpeech4A Neutral 50 These radical malcontents don't care about you. They don't care about America. All they care about is fulfilling their own selfish desires. 300
RadioEnclaveSpeech4A Neutral 50 Did you know, there are those amongst us who would shatter our hopes for peace, order, and security? 301
RadioEnclaveSpeech5A RadioEnclaveSpeech5A Neutral 50 The values of our past... shall be the foundation of our future. 302
RadioEnclaveSpeech5A Neutral 50 We will rebuild the American family, as it was, as it was meant to be! 303
RadioEnclaveSpeech5A Neutral 50 We will match up the destitute, orphaned children of the Capital Wasteland with qualified, eligible adults. 304
RadioEnclaveSpeech5A Neutral 50 The Enclave will restore every American school, reinstate every youth program, and offer counseling and financial assistance to any family in need. 305
RadioEnclaveSpeech5A Neutral 50 That changes! Right here! Right now! From this moment onward, the children of this great nation are its highest priority! 306
RadioEnclaveSpeech5A Neutral 50 We both know the answer, don't we? None. America's children live a terrifying, meaningless existence. There is no hope. No happiness. 307
RadioEnclaveSpeech5A Neutral 50 So let me ask you, America. How many of your children can say the same? How many of this nation's youth are truly happy, truly carefree? 308
RadioEnclaveSpeech5A Neutral 50 It was, for a little boy, the perfect existence. 309
RadioEnclaveSpeech5A Neutral 50 Oh, the adventures we had! From Knob Creek to Hodgenville we roamed, carefree and courageous, irresponsible and completely inseparable. 310
RadioEnclaveSpeech5A Neutral 50 When I was a child, growing up in rural Kentucky, I had the best friend a boy could hope for -- my dear old dog, Honey. 311
RadioEnclaveSpeech6A RadioEnclaveSpeech6A Neutral 50 One Enclave. One America. Now... and forever. 312
RadioEnclaveSpeech6A Neutral 50 But only together, TOGETHER, can we hope to reach our full potential. The way we were before the war. Whole. Beautiful. Powerful. 313
RadioEnclaveSpeech6A Neutral 50 So, as your President, I am the voice, I am the heart and soul, of the Enclave. That is to say, I am the voice, heart, and soul... of America. 314
RadioEnclaveSpeech6A Neutral 50 And, well, yes... the Enclave is me, as well. Ha ha ha. As your President, it's my responsibility to preside over our great democracy. 315
RadioEnclaveSpeech6A Neutral 50 Just who is the Enclave? Why, that's simple. The Enclave is you, America. The Enclave is your sister, your aunt, your friend, your neighbor. 316
RadioEnclaveSpeech6A Neutral 50 Let's talk about government, shall we? Or, more specifically, YOUR government, dear America - the Enclave. 317
RadioEnclaveSpeech7A RadioEnclaveSpeech7A Neutral 50 Music placeholder. 318
RadioEnclaveSpeech7A Neutral 50 So celebrate! Sing out! America is back! America IS beautiful! 319
RadioEnclaveSpeech7A Neutral 50 Just a little bit more time. That's all we need until the purifier is ready for continual operation. And then, your thirst will truly be quenched! 320
RadioEnclaveSpeech7A Neutral 50 Imagine, America - millions, MILLIONS of gallons of water, made fresh, clean, and completely pure. In a matter of minutes! And it's all for you! 321
RadioEnclaveSpeech7A Neutral 50 For years, Enclave scientists have been hard at work on the most ambitious scientific endeavor the world has ever seen! Project Purity! 322
RadioEnclaveSpeech7A Neutral 50 Well I'm going to tell you, right here, right now, those days are at an end! The Enclave is back, America, and we've brought clean water with us! 323
RadioEnclaveSpeech7A Neutral 50 But that's not really living, is it? You're simply existing, America. Postponing death for a day or two. 324
RadioEnclaveSpeech7A Neutral 50 Maybe you've got a makeshift purifier that cleans one glass of dirty water a day. Or you sip from an ancient faucet in an abandoned subway restroom. 325
RadioEnclaveSpeech7A Neutral 50 Water is the foundation of life. But here in the Capital Wasteland, indeed in the entire country, water is polluted. Irradiated. Deadly. 326
RadioEnclaveSpeech7A Neutral 50 You're thirsty, aren't you America? Not for knowledge or power, no. I'm not speaking metaphorically. You're thirsty for clean, fresh water. Hmm? 327
RadioEnclaveSpeech8A RadioEnclaveSpeech8A Neutral 50 Together, we'll restore the glory of this great nation. One problem at a time. 328
RadioEnclaveSpeech8A Neutral 50 Very good, Colonel. Very good! So there you have it, my darling America. Enclave troops are now in your neighborhoods, in your lives, in your hearts. 329
RadioEnclaveSpeech8A Neutral 50 But let's hear from the man himself, shall we? America, I give you - Colonel Augustus Autumn! 330
RadioEnclaveSpeech8A Neutral 50 These fine men and women, under the command of the stalwart Colonel Augustus Autumn, have one mission: the restoration of American peace and order. 331
RadioEnclaveSpeech8A Neutral 50 The Enclave is back, America! And no, not just on your radio. Right now Enclave troops are patrolling the Capital Wasteland! 332
RadioEnclaveSpeech9A RadioEnclaveSpeech9A Neutral 50 God bless the Enclave! God bless America! 333
RadioEnclaveSpeech9A Neutral 50 I am President John Henry Eden, and this is my pledge -- no one, NO ONE will take this great nation away from me! 334
RadioEnclaveSpeech9A Neutral 50 The Brotherhood of Steel will fail! All those who oppose the Enclave will fail! 335
RadioEnclaveSpeech9A Neutral 50 Let them come! Wave upon traitorous wave will crash against the Enclave's walls! 336
RadioEnclaveSpeech9A Neutral 50 It is only a matter of time before the traitors march on the purifier, and attempt to take it by force. 337
RadioEnclaveSpeech9A Neutral 50 The Brotherhood of Steel, in their arrogance, has claimed Project Purity as their own! They would steal the Enclave's work, steal America's water! 338
RadioEnclaveSpeech9A Neutral 50 Even as I speak these words, fearless Enclave soldiers are fortifying their positions at the great water purifier, bracing for an inevitable assault. 339
RadioEnclaveSpeech9A Neutral 50 In short, my dearest America - we are at war. 340
RadioEnclaveSpeech9A Neutral 50 Our great nation once more threatens to crumble, to topple into the sea of lawlessness and despair that have ruled us all for over 200 years. 341
RadioEnclaveSpeechGoodbye RadioEnclaveSpeechGoodbye Neutral 50 Reflect upon all I have said, my America. Reflect and wait. For soon this great nation will be reborn, and the Enclave will be its salvation. 342
RadioEnclaveSpeechGoodbye Neutral 50 And now, dearest America, we must say farewell. For there is much work to be done, and the Enclave never rests. Never. 343
RadioEnclaveSpeechGoodbye Neutral 50 But for now, my America, we must part. Restoring the greatest country in the world to its former glory, well. That takes time, even for the Enclave. 344
RadioEnclaveSpeechGoodbye Neutral 50 So remember, America. The Enclave is working around the clock to return this country to greatness. All you need is a little patience, a little faith. 345
RadioEnclaveSpeechGoodbye Neutral 50 We've got to part now, you and I, but don't be sad, America. The Enclave is working tirelessly to rebuild this great nation, so you don't have to. 346
RadioEnclaveSpeechIntro RadioEnclaveSpeechIntro Neutral 50 Hello, my beautiful America. This is President Eden, and it's time we had a talk. 347
