- Vault Dweller: "Everything going all right with training, Marty? Have they made you an Initiate yet?"
Marty Putnam: "Nah, I'm still a recruit. To be honest, nobody's really got time for us recruits right now, with everything that's happened. On the upside, at least they let me stay down here instead of the tents outside!"
