607MayorIntroScene100019294{Danny Sullivan is the gate guard, and you gave him express orders to keep Piper out / Irritated} Piper! Who you let you back inside? I told Sullivan to keep that gate shut!A1a
7{addressing Piper and the slanderous article she recently wrote about you / Irritated} You devious, rabble-rousing slanderer! The.. the level of dishonesty in that paper of yours! I'll have that printer scrapped for parts.PiperAlias: Oooh, that a statement, Mr. McDonough? "Tyrant mayor shuts down the press?"A1b

1000031C09Player Default: What is this place, anyway?{Friendly} Why, this is the safest place in all the Commonwealth, with the strongest community and highest standards of living available.Y1a

Who can help me?{reluctant to talk about Nick, but giving in to the player's question / Nervous} Well, there is one private citizen. Nick Valentine. A... detective of sorts, who specializes in tracking people down. Usually for debts or whatnot.Y1a
14Now, I have to get going. I'm sorry Diamond City Security doesn't have time to help, but I'm sure Mister Valentine charges a reasonable fee.PiperAlias: This is ridiculous! Diamond City Security can't spare one officer to help? I want the truth, McDonough! What's the real reason security never investigates any kidnappings?Y1b
15Player Default: A mayor of a great city must know everyone. Who can help me?{deflecting the player's question / Nervous} I'm sorry I don't have time for any more questions. I'm a busy man.

This isn't the first missing person's report to come through here, and now we've got an infant who's been taken!{dismissing Piper's badgering and focusing on ingrating yourself to the player / Disgust} Don't listen to her. While I am afraid that our security team can't follow every case that comes through, I'm confident you can find help here.A1a
17{Friendly} Diamond City has every conceivable service known to man. One of our great citizens can surely find the time to help you.Player Default: I hope so.A1b
180001DB55Player Default: Always believed in freedom of the press.{realizing the player is there for the first time, switching to your "Mayor of the People" voice / Surprised} Oh, I didn't mean to bring you into this argument, good sir. No no no... You look like Diamond City material.A1a

2509MayorIntroScene3000198FF{threatening / Irritated} I've had enough of this, Piper. From now on, consider you and that little sister of yours on notice.PiperAlias: Yeah, keep talkin' McDonough. That's all you're good for.A1a
26000198FDPiperAlias: Yeah, keep talkin' McDonough. That's all you're good for.{frustrated grunt / Irritated} Hmph.A1a
