7001CF486Player Default: Hmm? Oh that's just a calibration error... how about now?Better.Player Default: I'm just glad to have a chance to test these on a cooperative human subject.A1a

130{voiceover/narration style - memory of yourself at 10} But really, I was running from the guilt of not protecting her from Dad. Doesn't matter now, though.A1d
131MQ203VoiceoverMemoryAMom000D419B{voiceover/narration style - memory of your mother} Mom knew how it was. She wasn't soft but she loved me in her way.A1a
132{voiceover/narration style - memory of your mother} And she protected me from Dad. That cost her more than a few beatings.A1b
133{voiceover/narration style - memory of your mother} I never knew what happened to her after I left. I didn't want to know. Not then.A1c
134MQ203VoiceoverMemoryARadio000D4199{voiceover/narration style} People always hoping for something better. They usually end up with something worse.A1a
135MQ203VoiceoverMemoryBBaby000D4D9D{heartbroken. try a long pause between lines - you're thinking of all the reasons you never deserved her, but you can't express them} Whatever made me think a guy like me should have a daughter... I never deserved her. Not for one second.A1a
136MQ203VoiceoverMemoryBKellogg000D4CAA{voiceover/narration style - memory of yourself before your wife was murdered} The thing about happiness is that you only know you had it when it's gone.A1a
137{voiceover/narration style - memory of yourself before your wife was murdered} I mean, you may think to yourself that you're happy. But you don't really believe it.A1b
138{voiceover/narration style - memory of yourself before your wife was murdered} You focus on the petty bullshit, or the next job, or whatever.A1c
139{voiceover/narration style - memory of yourself before your wife was murdered} It's only looking back, by comparison with what comes after, that you really understand that's what happiness felt like.A1d
140MQ203VoiceoverMemoryBSarah000D4CA9{voiceover/narration style - memory of your murdered wife} I was the worst thing that ever happened to her.A1a
141{voiceover/narration style - memory of your murdered wife} If she'd never met me, she'd have stayed in the Hub, maybe hooked up with someone who didn't kill people for a living.A1b
142{voiceover/narration style - memory of your murdered wife} Probably been happier than she was with me. Almost certainly lived longer.A1c
143MQ203VoiceoverMemoryBWindow000D4CA8{voiceover/narration style - memory of life in SF} I thought San Francisco was my chance to start fresh. I was the hot shit, the gunslinger from the Hub, rolling into town with the world at my feet.A1a
144{voiceover/narration style - memory of life in SF} Everybody knew I was the one who'd shot Valdez, and I could write my own ticket to any outfit in town.A1b
145{voiceover/narration style - memory of life in SF} It all worked out pretty damn well for a while.A1c
146MQ203VoiceoverMemoryDBartender000D5B79{voiceover/narration style - memory of your life after your wife was murdered} I don't remember much from that time. It all kind of blends together. There was almost always a bar, though. That's universal.A1a
147MQ203VoiceoverMemoryDCustomer01000D5B7B{voiceover/narration style - memory of your life after your wife was murdered} There was always a job for someone like me.A1a
148{voiceover/narration style - memory of your life after your wife was murdered} It didn't matter what it was. It didn't matter who I was supposed to kill.A1b
149{voiceover/narration style - memory of your life after your wife was murdered} I got pretty good at it.A1c
150MQ203VoiceoverMemoryDCustomer02000D5B7A{voiceover/narration style - memory of your life after your wife was murdered} There was always someone that wanted someone else dead. Sometimes just roughed up, but dead was usually what they wanted.A1a
151{voiceover/narration style - memory of your life after your wife was murdered} Sometimes they thought they could cheat me. That was usually only when I first arrived somewhere.A1b
152{voiceover/narration style - memory of your life after your wife was murdered} It didn't matter to me. I just took it as part of the job. A little extra thrown in for free. I always got paid in the end, one way or another.A1c
153MQ203VoiceoverMemoryDKellogg000D5B7C{voiceover/narration style - memory of yourself after your wife was murdered} I didn't care where I was going. Ended up mostly wandering east. Getting as far away from San Francisco as I could, maybe.A1a
154MQ203VoiceoverMemoryEKellogg000D7658{voiceover/narration style - memory of first meeting the Institute} I finally ended up in the Commonwealth. I kind of ran out of road, plus I'd come to terms with life.A1a
155{voiceover/narration style - memory of first meeting the Institute} I wasn't going to be stupid enough to get mixed up with caring about other people again.A1b
156{voiceover/narration style - memory of first meeting the Institute} It was just me against the world. And the world had it coming.A1c
157MQ203VoiceoverMemoryEScientist000D7657{voiceover/narration style - memory of first meeting the Institute} You heard all sorts of rumors about the Institute, but I figured they were just a convenient bogeyman for anything bad that ever happened.A1a
158{voiceover/narration style - memory of first meeting the Institute} They were real, all right, but they didn't know anything about operating on the surface. Relied on their synths for everything.A1b
159{voiceover/narration style - memory of first meeting the Institute} They had the resources I needed, and I had the expertise they needed. Turned into a permanent arrangement, which suited me just fine.A1c
160MQ203VoiceoverMemoryESynth000D7656{voiceover/narration style - memory of first meeting the Institute} The first synths weren't all that impressive. I'm good, but I'm not that good.A1a
161{voiceover/narration style - memory of first meeting the Institute} But the Institute could always make more, and kept making them better each time.A1b
162{voiceover/narration style - memory of first meeting the Institute} They still give me the creeps, but you have to get used to them if you want to work with the Institute.A1c
163MQ203VoiceoverMemoryFCrypod000D7650{voiceover/narration style} I never knew why we didn't just refreeze the rest of them, but we had our orders. I guess the old man didn't want so many loose ends.A1a
164{voiceover/narration style} Too bad he left alive the one person he shouldn't have.A1b
165MQ203VoiceoverMemoryFKellogg000D7655{voiceover/narration style - memory of killing player's wife and kidnapping son} I was now the Institute's main operator in the Commonwealth. If they needed something done, they came to me.A1a
166{voiceover/narration style - memory of killing player's wife and kidnapping son} It wasn't usual for anybody from the Institute to come along on a mission. So this one stood out.A1b
167{voiceover/narration style - memory of killing player's wife and kidnapping son} I didn't know then who it was we were grabbing from the Vault. Of course, neither did they. Not really.A1c
168MQ203VoiceoverMemoryFPlayer000D7654{voiceover/narration style - memory of player, whose wife who you murdered} Even then, I knew it was a mistake leaving her alive. I understood that kind of revenge, no one better.Voiceover: But I was cocky enough to assume I could handle some soft prewar Vault dweller, even if she somehow got thawed out.A1a
169{voiceover/narration style - memory of player, whose husband who you murdered} Even then, I knew it was a mistake leaving him alive. I understood that kind of revenge, no one better.Voiceover: But I was cocky enough to assume I could handle some soft prewar Vault dweller, even if she somehow got thawed out.A2a
170000D764FVoiceover: At least I know those Institute bastards will soon get what's coming to them, too.If she could take me out, they won't be able to hide from her for long.A1a
171Voiceover: At least I know those Institute bastards will soon get what's coming to them, too.If he could take me out, they won't be able to hide from him for long.A2a
172000D764EVoiceover: Even then, I knew it was a mistake leaving her alive. I understood that kind of revenge, no one better.{voiceover/narration style - memory of player, whose husband who you murdered} But I was cocky enough to assume I could handle some soft prewar Vault dweller, even if she somehow got thawed out.Voiceover: At least I know those Institute bastards will soon get what's coming to them, too.A1a
173Voiceover: Even then, I knew it was a mistake leaving her alive. I understood that kind of revenge, no one better.{voiceover/narration style - memory of player, whose wife who you murdered} But I was cocky enough to assume I could handle some soft prewar Vault dweller, even if he somehow got thawed out.Voiceover: At least I know those Institute bastards will soon get what's coming to them, too.A2a
174000D764DVoiceover: But I was cocky enough to assume I could handle some soft prewar Vault dweller, even if she somehow got thawed out.At least I know those Institute bastards will soon get what's coming to them, too.Voiceover: If she could take me out, they won't be able to hide from her for long.A1a
175MQ203VoiceoverMemoryFScientist000D7651{voiceover/narration style} The eggheads never liked taking orders from a dirty contaminated degenerate like me.A1a
176{voiceover/narration style} But they needed me, and I made sure they knew it.A1b
177MQ203VoiceoverMemoryFSpouse000D7653Voiceover: I'm glad I didn't have to kill the kid. I'm not saying I haven't done it, but I never like to.{voiceover/narration style - memory of player's wife, who you murdered and kidnapped her son} And yeah, I guess it did remind me of her. I'm a cold-hearted bastard for sure, but I'm still human.A1a
178{voiceover/narration style - memory of player's wife, who you murdered and kidnapped her son} Better this way, though. Better than taking her kid and leaving her alive.A1b
179Voiceover: I'm glad I didn't have to kill the kid. I'm not saying I haven't done it, but I never like to.{voiceover/narration style - memory of player's husband, who you murdered and kidnapped his son} But it was better this way. Better than taking his kid and leaving him alive.A2a
180000D7652{voiceover/narration style - memory of player's wife, who you murdered and kidnapped her son} I'm glad I didn't have to kill the kid. I'm not saying I haven't done it, but I never like to.Voiceover: And yeah, I guess it did remind me of her. I'm a cold-hearted bastard for sure, but I'm still human.A1a
181MQ203VoiceoverMemoryGKellogg000D8444{voiceover/narration style} Turned out I was the only one to ever get these installed. At least that's the story I heard.A1a
182{voiceover/narration style} Some kind of "complications" is all they would say. I suppose they didn't much care if something scrambled my brains.A1b
183{voiceover/narration style} And anyway, by that point I wouldn't have let them take the implants out. I'd come to rely on them too much.A1c
184{voiceover/narration style} Which, looking back, is probably one of the reasons they agreed to it in the first place. Give them some leverage over me.A1d
185MQ203VoiceoverMemoryGScientist000D8443{voiceover/narration style} This was my reward for the Vault job. I'd starting getting implants a few years back but only minor stuff.A1a
186{voiceover/narration style} This was the full deal - the cutting-edge tech they didn't usually let out of the lab.A1b
187{voiceover/narration style} I volunteered for everything. I figured I didn't have anything to lose.A1c
188{voiceover/narration style} Besides, this was kind of their thing. Like killing people was my thing. Why not see what they could do for me?A1d
189MQ203VoiceoverMemoryHCourser000D973B{voiceover/narration style - memory of courser} The new breed of synths could easily pass as human. Some of them did.A1a
190{voiceover/narration style - memory of courser} But the coursers - they weren't built to blend in. They were killing machines, pure and simple.A1b
191{voiceover/narration style - memory of courser} Smarter, stronger, and faster than almost any real human. I'm just glad they were always on my side.A1c
192MQ203VoiceoverMemoryHKellogg000D9739{voiceover/narration style - memory of living in Diamond City with Shaun} This whole setup in Diamond City was part of some elaborate plan of the old man's.A1a
193{voiceover/narration style - memory of living in Diamond City with Shaun} Seems obvious now that we were bait for our friend from the Vault. The timing couldn't have been an accident. That's not how the old man works.A1b
194{voiceover/narration style - memory of living in Diamond City with Shaun} I wonder if he outsmarted me in the end. Another loose end tied up.A1c
195MQ203VoiceoverMemoryHShaun000D973A{voiceover/narration style - memory of living in Diamond City with Shaun} It wasn't my idea to settle down with the kid in the middle of Diamond City. I thought it was a terrible idea, actually.A1a
196{voiceover/narration style - memory of living in Diamond City with Shaun} But it was one of the old man's pet projects, so here we were. Me and the kid like a happy little family.A1b
197{voiceover/narration style - memory of living in Diamond City with Shaun} I ended up kind of liking it. A reminder of what my life might have been if things had turned out differently.A1c
198{voiceover/narration style - memory of living in Diamond City with Shaun} But there's no going back. I knew it was just temporary, and it would be back to normal business before too long.A1d
199MQ203VoiceoverMemoryHVirgil000D9736{voiceover/narration style - memory of operation to kill Virgil} If anything like this had ever happened before, I'd never heard of it. Maybe a sign that the old man was losing his grip.A1a
200{voiceover/narration style - memory of operation to kill Virgil} Finding someone in the Glowing Sea wasn't going to be any picnic, but I never expected an Institute egghead to give me so much trouble.A1b
