Oh, I tried. The elder listened patiently to my carefully constructed argument regarding why that buffoon should lose his position. Then he just as patiently explained to me that Taggart's work was vital to our cause, and that he wasn't to be trifled with "lesser matters." But vital to our cause? Hardly. (Tell on Taggart to McNamara)

  1. Linda Schuler: "Hello, you must be the outsider everyone is talking about. I'm Linda Schuler. If you ever need medical attention, this is the place to come."
    (Linda Schuler's dialogue)
  2. Courier: "So you're a doctor?"
    Linda Schuler: "Yes, I handle all medical needs in the bunker. If you're ever wounded, I can treat you, for a fee. Normally I'd just be the base's medical officer, but my other duties say otherwise."
    (Linda Schuler's dialogue)
  3. Courier: "You mentioned other duties you had?"
    Linda Schuler: "I'm this bunker's Head Scribe in everything but name. I supervise the research teams. I collate the reports. I attend the meetings. But for reasons beyond me, that buffoon Taggart still gets the title. And don't get me started on that little pet of his. Everyone around here knows what's going on there but her."
    Courier: "You really don't like Taggart, do you?"
    Linda Schuler: "I don't appreciate how much harder I have to work to cover for his tendency to focus on his personal projects. I try not to think too much about his personal proclivities."
    (Linda Schuler's dialogue)
