1-Hello{standoffish, elitist} *sigh* I don't object to you outsiders coming up here, but must you insist on speaking to me?
2{standoffish, elitist} Just remain quiet while you're up here. We get enough noise from the riff-raff down below.
3{standoffish, elitist} You really are hard to get rid of. *sigh* Perhaps the direct approach. Go. Away.
4{standoffish, elitist} You belong down in the Lower section of the city. It's more... suitable for those lacking in ambition.
5{standoffish, elitist} You bore me. That's all there is to it.
6{depressed, your son died recently / Depressed} I sometimes wonder what the point of it all was. I worked so hard to get here, and now...
7{depressed, your son died recently / Depressed} What is all this for, in the end? All this struggle?
8{depressed, your son died recently / Depressed} I sometimes still look around, expecting to see Nelson. Then I remember.
9{depressed, your son died recently} Just... go away.

35{Stern} You there. We need to talk.Player Default: What seems to be the problem?A
36000838C6Player Default: What seems to be the problem?{Angry} The problem is that I've learned that you killed my son Nelson. Is this true?Player Default: Yes, it's true. I killed him.A1a
37000838C5Player Default: Buzz off, old man.{Angry} Shut up, you punk. Did you kill my son Nelson? Did you?Player Default: Yes, it's true. I killed him.B1a
38000838C4Player Default: I think you have me confused with someone else.{Disgust} Oh, I know who you are. I don't know why they let scum like you into the city.X1a

40000838BEPlayer Default: Yes, it's true. I killed him.{choked with emotion / Angry} You son of a bitch. At least tell me one thing. Why did you do it?Player Default: I'm sorry he's dead. Things just got out of hand.A1a
41000838BDPlayer Default: I didn't kill Nelson. Whoever told you that was lying.{considering / Thinking} Hmm. You are an easy target for anyone trying to shift blame off themselves.B1a
42{Question} If it wasn't you, then who was it? Do you know who killed Nelson?Player Default: I heard it was Marowski. Nelson was buying chems from him.B1b
43Player Default: I didn't kill Nelson. Whoever told you that was lying.{considering / Thinking} Well. Alright. You are an easy target for anyone trying to shift blame off themselves.B2a
44{Suspicious} I'm going to take you at your word. For now. But if I find out that you're the one lying...Player Default: I'm sorry he's dead. Things just got out of hand.B2b
45Player Default: I didn't kill Nelson. Whoever told you that was lying.{Stern} I've known Marowski a long time, and he wouldn't lie about this. Not to me.B3a
46{with cold fury / Angry} No, you're the liar. And you're going to pay for what you did. I promise - on my son's grave.Player Default: I'm sorry he's dead. Things just got out of hand.B3b

48000838BCPlayer Default: I'm not sure. I don't always get the names of everyone I kill.{Angry} My son's death is a joke to you? You son of a bitch. We'll see who has the last laugh.Player Default: I'm sorry he's dead. Things just got out of hand.X1a
49000838BBPlayer Default: What makes you think I killed him?{Angry} Marowski says so. One of his guys saw you do it. Murdered him in cold blood. I dare you to deny it to my face.Y1a
50{Angry} Did you do it?Player Default: Yes, it's true. I killed him.Y1b
51Player Default: What makes you think I killed him?{Stern} You don't understand how things work around here. I basically run this town. So I find out everything that goes on.Y2a
52{Angry} I dare you to deny it to my face. Did you do it?Player Default: Yes, it's true. I killed him.Y2b
53000838BA{calling out as player walks away / Angry} This isn't over! You'll pay for what you did, you son of a bitch.A1a

55000838B9Player Default: I'm sorry he's dead. Things just got out of hand.{Somber} I appreciate that. Nelson, he... well, I know he was no choir boy.A1a
56{Depressed} I always hoped he'd get that out of his system and make me proud one day. That's done now. I just... yeah. Thanks for being honest.A1b

58000838B8Player Default: Neslon was a punk who was in way over his head. Good riddance.{Angry} We'll see who's in over their heads, you outland dirt-humper. You're going to pay for what you did.B1a
59000838B7Player Default: He was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.{Angry} Is that what you tell yourself every time you murder someone? This time, you're going to pay for what you did.X1a
60000838B6Player Default: Does it really matter?{Angry} No, I guess it doesn't. My son is dead, and you're going to pay for that. Enjoy what's left of your life. It won't be long.Y1a
61MS13NelsonDiesAccusePlayerPay000922F3{Thinking} Hmm. I did agree to this, didn't I? You realize I could use your own money to keep hiring thugs to kill you...A1a
62{Disgust} But... it's easier just to let it go. I'll call off my vendetta. Just don't ever speak to me again.A1b
63MS13NelsonDiesAccusePlayerResolve000A7CB2{Angry} You'll pay for what you've done. I promise.Player Default: I'm sorry about your son. Really.A
64{Angry} I have nothing else to say to you.Player Default: I'm sorry about your son. Really.A
65{Angry} Get away from me.Player Default: I'm sorry about your son. Really.A
66000922FBPlayer Default: Here. For what it's worth.{Suspicious} Easy to say. Nothing changes until the caps are in my hands.A1a
67000922FAPlayer Default: Not a chance.{Defiant} As you like. I'd just as soon see you dead as get the money.B1a
68000922F9Player Default: That's an awful lot of money.{Disgust} You disgust me. Go away.X1a
69000922F8Player Default: And if I don't pay?{Angry} You already know the answer to that. I have more than enough money to keep hiring thugs until one of them gets lucky.Y1a
7000083C88Player Default: I'm sorry about your son. Really.{Angry} Now you're sorry. But now it's too late.Player Default: Here. For what it's worth.A1a
7100083C87Player Default: You'd better leave me alone, or else.{Disgust} Or else what? You seem to think I have something else to lose. Get away from me.Player Default: Here. For what it's worth.B1a

74MS13NelsonDiesAccusePlayerShiftBlame000A7CB2{Conspiratorial} I'm still hoping you can help me find out who killed Nelson.Player Default: I heard it was Marowski. Nelson was buying chems from him.A
750008446EPlayer Default: I heard it was Marowski. Nelson was buying chems from him.{Thinking} I know he was. And now it makes sense why Marowski would try to put the blame on you.MalcolmLatimer: Too bad I can't kill him again, but somebody already took care of him. Karma's a bitch, isn't it?A1a
760008446DPlayer Default: I heard Paul Pembroke ambushed him during some kind of chem deal.{Surprised} Pembroke? Goddamn! I'm surprised he had the balls to do it, but it fits.B1a
77{Disgust} Just the kind of underhanded shit he'd try. Always going for the quick score.MalcolmLatimer: Well. I guess he already got what was coming to him. Karma's a bitch, isn't it?B1b
780008446CPlayer Default: I have no idea.{Suspicious} Well. Alright. I'll take your word for it, for now. But if I hear that you were the one lying to me...Player Default: You've got a deal. Paul is as good as dead.X1a
790008446BPlayer Default: I want to know who told you it was me.{Question} I heard it from Marowski. Low-life chem pusher from Goodneighbor. Maybe he has some reason to bring trouble down on you?Y1a
80{Question} So do you know anything about who killed Nelson?Player Default: I heard it was Marowski. Nelson was buying chems from him.Y1b
810008445EPlayer Default: You've got a deal. Paul is as good as dead.{Somber} I hope so. Come back and talk to me when he's actually dead.A1a
820008445DPlayer Default: You'll have to find someone else for this one.{Disgust} Don't worry. There are plenty of other low-lifes willing to kill for that kind of money.B1a
830008445CPlayer Default: Make it worth my while. 300 caps.{a bit reluctantly / Thinking} Fine. 300 caps to never have to look at Paul Pembroke again... sure.X1a
84Player Default: Make it worth my while. 300 caps.{Irritated} You don't think I can find some other low-life to kill Paul for 200 caps? This is a take-it-or-leave-it kind of situation.Player Default: You've got a deal. Paul is as good as dead.X2a
850008445BPlayer Default: What if I get caught?{Sarcastic} That would be your problem, wouldn't it? That's why I'm paying you the big bucks.Y1a
86{Question} So will you do it? Easiest 200 caps you'll ever earn.Player Default: You've got a deal. Paul is as good as dead.Y1b
8700084466Player Default: I know he was. And now it makes sense why Marowski would try to put the blame on you.{SinisterSmile} Too bad I can't kill him again, but somebody already took care of him. Karma's a bitch, isn't it?Player Default: You've got a deal. Paul is as good as dead.A1a
88Player Default: I know he was. And now it makes sense why Marowski would try to put the blame on you.{Angry} That bastard needs to pay. And you can't be too happy about him pinning this on you, right?A2a
89{Somber} I'll pay you 400 caps to take care of him. We both win. What do you say?Player Default: You've got a deal. Marowski's as good as dead.A2b
9000084465Player Default: Just the kind of underhanded shit he'd try. Always going for the quick score.{with grim satisfaction that Paul is dead / SinisterSmile} Well. I guess he already got what was coming to him. Karma's a bitch, isn't it?Player Default: You've got a deal. Paul is as good as dead.B1a
91Player Default: Just the kind of underhanded shit he'd try. Always going for the quick score.{Angry} That bastard! I'd kill him myself, but... even I couldn't cover that up.B2a
92{Thinking} But an outsider like you... if he ended up dead, I'd be happy to pay you, say, 200 caps. No questions asked.Player Default: You've got a deal. Paul is as good as dead.B2b
93MS13NelsonDiesFindBody000A7CB2{Apologetic} Excuse me. I could use your help.Player Default: Sure. What do you need?A
940008259BPlayer Default: I already found Nelson. I'm afraid he's dead.{Disbelief} What? Oh my god...MalcolmLatimer: I guess I already knew he must be dead. He was mixed up with some bad people.A1a
95Player Default: I already found Nelson. I'm afraid he's dead.{Grateful} Thank you! I knew you would help.A2a
960008259APlayer Default: Not my problem.{Disgust} You Lowers are all the same.B1a
970008258FPlayer Default: Sorry, not interested.{desperate, pleading / Pleading} Please. My son Nelson is missing. I'll pay you. Whatever you want.Player Default: I already found Nelson. I'm afraid he's dead.B1a
9800082599Player Default: You can do better than that. 200 and you've got a deal.{a bit reluctantly / Thinking} Well... okay. It is my son we're talking about. Just find him.X1a
99Player Default: You can do better than that. 200 and you've got a deal.{a bit reluctantly / Worried} I'm sorry. I can't afford that. I wish I could.X2a
100{Question} But... you'll still help, won't you? 100 caps is still good money.Player Default: I already found Nelson. I'm afraid he's dead.X2b
10100082598Player Default: Why not just ask Diamond City security to help?{Disbelief} Are you serious? Those apes couldn't find their own asses if they were on fire.Y1a
102{Concerned} Besides, I know he's not in Diamond City. I need someone willing to risk setting foot outside the walls.Player Default: I already found Nelson. I'm afraid he's dead.Y1b
10300082593Player Default: Sure. What do you need?{Neutral} My son, Nelson. He's... missing. If you find him, I'll pay you. 100 caps. It's all I have available.Player Default: I already found Nelson. I'm afraid he's dead.A1a
104MS13NelsonDiesFindBodyAlready0008258E{Somber} I guess I already knew he must be dead. He was mixed up with some bad people.A1a
105{Somber} He thought I didn't know about it. But I never stopped him. Maybe I was... proud of him. Making his way in the world, just like his old man...Player Default: I'm sorry I had to be the one to tell you.A1b
10600082589Player Default: I'm sorry I had to be the one to tell you.{Depressed} No, not your fault. I'd rather know. Better than always wondering what happened.MalcolmLatimer: Here. Take the reward.A1a
10700082588Player Default: Yeah, whatever. About my reward...{coldly / Disgust} Of course. Your money.B1a
10800082587Player Default: I should be on my way.{Depressed} Uh, yes. And, I will still pay you what I promised. I'm a man of my word.X1a
10900082586Player Default: What bad people was he mixed up with?{Disgust} Henry Cooke, for one. And I'm pretty sure they were both mixed up with that Goodneighbor crowd.Y1a
110{Depressed} But that doesn't matter now.MalcolmLatimer: Here. Take the reward. I'm a man of my word.Y1b
11100082585Player Default: No, not your fault. I'd rather know. Better than always wondering what happened.{Depressed} Here. Take the reward.A1a
11200082582Player Default: But that doesn't matter now.{Stern} Here. Take the reward. I'm a man of my word.Y1a
113MS13NelsonDiesFindBodyReturn000A7CB2{Concerned} Yes? Did you find Nelson?Player Default: I did. I'm sorry, but he's dead.A
1140008257APlayer Default: Do you know what he was doing outside Diamond City?{Puzzled} What? No, I don't. He never told me anything about what he was up to.Y1a
115{Worried} But why do you ask? Did you find him?Player Default: I did. I'm sorry, but he's dead.Y1b
116MS13NelsonDiesKillMarowski000A7CB2{Neutral} You there. I have a job for you, if you're interested.Player Default: Sure. What do you need?A
11700083F3CPlayer Default: You've got a deal. Marowski's as good as dead.{Stern} I hope so. Come back and talk to me when he's actually dead.A1a
11800083F3APlayer Default: Throw in another 200 caps and I'll take care of Marowski for you.{a bit reluctantly / Concerned} 600 caps? You have an awfully high opinion of yourself... I hope you're worth it. Deal.X1a
119Player Default: Throw in another 200 caps and I'll take care of Marowski for you.{Disbelief} 600 caps? Do I look like an idiot? I can find plenty of other low-lifes just like you who'll jump at this offer.X2a
120{Stern} 400 caps. Take it or leave it.Player Default: You've got a deal. Marowski's as good as dead.X2b
12100083F39Player Default: What did this Marowski do to you?{Angry} He killed my son Nelson. Or had his goons kill him. Either way, he's going to pay.Player Default: You've got a deal. Marowski's as good as dead.Y1a
12200083F34Player Default: Sure. What do you need?{Stern} I want someone killed. It's... personal. I'll pay you 400 caps. Interested?Player Default: I need to know who you want dead before I agree.A1a
12300083F33Player Default: Sorry, not interested.{Disgust} I thought you weren't the kind of person to say no to earning an easy 400 caps. I guess I was wrong.Player Default: I need to know who you want dead before I agree.B1a
124MS13NelsonDiesKillMarowskiReturn000A7CB2{Impressed} Maybe a bit more public than necessary, but you got the job done.MalcolmLatimer: Here's what I owe you. As far as I'm concerned, this is the last time we ever need to speak.A

126{Question} So... is Marowski dead?Player Default: Yes, sir. As requested.A
12700083FD9Player Default: Yes, sir. As requested.{Angry} Good. Bastard. I hope you didn't make it too easy for him.MalcolmLatimer: Here's what I owe you. As far as I'm concerned, this is the last time we ever need to speak.A1a
12800083FD6Player Default: Why didn't you just kill Paul yourself?{Somber} It would undermine McDonough's status as the town figurehead if I blatantly flouted the law like that.Y1a
129{Defiant} Besides, I'm no assassin. That's what I hire people like you for.Y1b
130{Suspicious} I hope you have some good news for me.Player Default: Yes, sir. As requested.Y1c
131Player Default: Why didn't you just kill Paul yourself?{Angry} He killed my son Nelson. Or had his goons kill him. Doesn't matter now.Y2a
