3 We need to find and kill that alpha wolf ASAP! Take out the smaller packs and draw out that alpha. Urgent, commanding

5 0052CA33 0052CA34 Nice work, people! Looks like you got the big bad alpha wolf's attention. Forest Watch has eyes on him now. Urgent, excited
6 Time to lock and load, Responders. You've got a wolf to hunt. Just make sure you do it quick, before he slips away!

1 00137E8C 00137942 Is it on?
2 00137F53 001373A2 Yeah, the red light is on, so it's recording.
3 001380BD 00137599 This Maxine Ballard, squad leader of The Scorchslayers. Official sounding, like recording for posterity
4 We're making this recording to document our descent into the Belching Betty Mine for the final exam. Official sounding, like recording for posterity
5 001380D7 00137307 Well, say which exam... Scolding
6 001380FD 00137472 Oh, right. Suddenly remembering.
7 For the Fire Breathers final exam. We're supposed to head inside, find the emergency beacon and watch out for Scorched. Official sounding, like recording for posterity
8 00138102 001378A0 Piece of cake.
9 0013812A 0013739B I don't know. If it's so easy, why hasn't anyone else completed the exam?
10 00138142 00137579 Because they weren't us.
11 We've been hunting Scorched at the farms for days. How much harder could the ones in the mines be? Grow a little backbone.
12 00138158 001372F2 Come on, guys. Let's stick together on this. Scolding the others for a petty argument
13 0013817D 00137412 All of you, shut up! Annoyed from folks interrupting your recording
14 Okay, Scorchslayers. Time to lock and load. Let's get the job done. back to "in command" mode
15 001381CC 0013783D Okay, "squad leader." Tim and Andrew are both dead. Now what the hell are we supposed to do!? Angry and sarcasm at beginning
16 001381F0 0013738F Shut up, Sy... she's recording. "Sy" is like "sigh" - short for Sylvester
17 001381F4 0013753B Entry two. Official sounding, like recording for posterity
18 We've lost Timothy Wolfe and Andrew Rhodes to a swarm of Scorched, and the rest of us barely made it past them alive. Official sounding, like recording for posterity
19 I'm beginning to think Melody Larkin may have underestimated the difficulty of this exam. Official sounding, like recording for posterity
20 001381F7 001372CF You're damn right she did! This is suicide! Well, the hell with this, I'm going back! Previous was "I'm beginning to think Melody Larkin may have underestimated the difficulty of this exam"
21 001381FA 0013740F No you're not. You're sticking with us.
22 00138218 001377E9 Why? So we can get picked off one by one until we're all dead!? No way, not me!
23 0013824A 00137367 You know what, Sy? Sy = sigh - You're beginning to have enough of him, ramping up to anger.
24 You've been acting like a coward ever since we started tackling the Scorched at the farms. And now Tim and Andrew are dead because of you! Really reading Sy the riot act here.
25 00138252 00137521 What the hell are you talking about!? Angry and Surprised
26 00138254 001371DF I saw him, Max. You're accusing someone else on team, angry
27 When those Scorched pushed through the tunnels, they came at us from all sides.
28 Tim and Andrew were holding and they told Sy to watch the back. But he didn't. He ran away and left their rear flank wide open. Sy = sigh
29 That's what took them down! furious
30 00138257 00137405 Bullshit! She's lying Max! Angry but also panicking you've been found out.
31 00138260 00137776 Both of you, knock it off! Trying to shut two people who are arguing up
32 Sylvester, if you want to go, go. But you're going back alone. And I guarantee we didn't clear everything behind us. Cold, very direct - in Sylvester's face
33 But even if you make it, mark my words, you'll never be a part of this squad again.
34 00138268 00137359 Fine, to hell with both of you. I'm out of here! You know you've lost.
35 001382CE 00137514 You're seriously letting him go?
36 001382DE 00136F5D Yeah, Rita. We're better off without him. With some contempt
37 0013834C 0013733D Entry three. Official sounding, like recording for posterity, but things haven't gone well overall (some concern)
38 Sylvester left the team some time ago. We heard his screams echoing through the mines only minutes after he left. Official sounding, like recording for posterity, but things haven't gone well overall (some concern)
39 Rita and I are all that's left. Despite the odds, we've somehow made it to the beacon. We've done it. Official sounding, like recording for posterity, but things haven't gone well overall (some concern)
40 001386D7 001373EF What's supposed to happen when we activate that beacon?
41 001386F0 00137E1A I don't know, I suppose we'll get Melody Larkin's next instruction about how to get out of here.
42 00138738 001376EC Well, there's no reason for us to stand here and wait. Push the damn thing.
43 00138745 001373CC <Beacon Noise> This is where the beacon noise will sound (match to MTR06's sound for MTR06_EmergencyBeacon)
44 00138760 0013747F Oh my god... A horde of zombies coming at you unexpectedly... you against many
45 001387C9 0013748E They're everywhere. I... I don't know if we're going to make it, but we didn't come this far just to give up. A horde of zombies coming at you unexpectedly... you against many
46 00138831 00137DCF <Gun bolt sliding into place sound>
47 0013883B 00137B71 <Gun bolt sliding into place sound>
48 00138883 001373BF I'm with you, Max. Getting brave
49 001388A6 00137339 If we don't make it out of here, I just wanted you to know it's been a real honor, Rita. Getting braver
50 001388AE 0013759B Likewise. Now let's go show those Scorched what it means to be a Fire Breather.
51 002B711F 002B712A You never resigned as Senator. Is that something you're planning to do? You're conducting an interview. You just crossed a line and got yelled at. You're keeping cool.
52 002B7120 002B7126 If it means you'll get the word out, go ahead. Being interviewed by a member of the press.
53 002B7121 002B7125 Would you mind if I asked you one last question? You're conducting an interview. You just crossed a line and got yelled at.
54 002B7122 002B7124 I, I understand. It's just a ... sensitive topic. Being interviewed by a member of the press. You're calming yourself down after just screaming at the interviewer. Back in control.
55 002B8E9D 002B8EC4 How would you feel about getting back into a fire suit? Give a beat. You know exactly the assignment you think this guy'd be good for. Add some smirk. You think this is a good acquisition.
56 002B8E9E 002B8EBE I'm willing to prove it. Gimme a job. I'll show you what I can do. You've been told to put your money where your mouth is. You're game.
57 002B8E9F 002B8EB9 And how do we know you ain't just sellin' us a bill of goods? Quietly impressed. This guy just said he was an elite soldier.
58 002B8EA0 002B8EC0 You guys have a lot of mouths to feed and a lot of people to keep safe. I can help you do both. All I ask is regular rations and my own bunk. With just a hint of pride.
59 002B8EA1 002B8EBD Because I guarantee you don't have someone like me. I find things. People. Supplies. Solutions. And I'm good at it. With just a hint of pride.
60 002B8EA2 002B8EB8 And why would the Responders need a Marine-turned-Brotherhood defector in their midst? Pushing back on this recruit. They have a great resume. Almost too great.
61 002B8EA3 002B8EB4 No shit. Quietly impressed. This guy just said he was an elite soldier.
62 002B8EA4 002B8EB1 Marine Recon. With just a hint of pride.
63 002B8EA5 002B8EC6 I'm guessing Paladin Taggerdy didn't recruit a fire fighter because she liked how you looked in fatigues. What were you before your civilian life? Curious. Recruit said something that doesn't quite add up.
64 002B8EA6 002B8EB5 From what I've heard, Responders do too. Being honest about your goals in life.
65 002B8EA7 002B8EC5 I was a fire fighter before the war. It's my opinion that looking after the people of Appalachia should be top priority. Being honest about your goals in life.
66 002B8EA8 002B8EB6 Taggerdy's Brotherhood was a fine organization. Maxson's Brotherhood's only cares about locking away every bit of technology they can get their hands on. Contrasting the two Brotherhoods. One was to your liking. The other wasn't.
67 002B8EA9 002B8EB3 And why is that, exactly? Brotherhood's been a good ally to us. Taking you on could be seen as an act of bad faith. Curious. This guy's suggesting the Brotherhood aren't the good guys you thought they were.
68 002B8EAA 002B8EBF Our interests no longer aligned. Trying to be polite about why you left the Brotherhood.
69 002B8EAB 002B8EB2 Cause you quit the Brotherhood. Being intentionally stern. You're trying to throw a possible recruit off his game.
70 002B8EAC 002B8EC2 Was. Not sure that really applies anymore. Being questioned about your military background.
71 002B8EAD 002B8EC3 Sergeant Madigan, is it? Interrogating a new recruit.
72 002B8EAE 002B8EC1 Sorry, papa. Apologizing to your father. You did something wrong and now you leave.
73 002B8EAF 002B8EB7 James? James! There you are! You can't keep coming back here! It's not-- shit. Put your mask back on. Lets go! Your son is singing to himself about his trains outside, when there are a bunch of nasty baddies nearby.
74 002B915A 002B916D Who needs money when you've got stubbornness? Said with a wink and a tear at the same time
75 002B915B 002B916F If we're going to pull through this, it's going to take nothing less than bullheaded determination to put us back on the right path. Half joke, light-hearted
76 002B915C 002B9168 But I'll stick it out. I'll try to make things better. Someone has to. Sighing. Accepting.
77 002B915D 002B9169 If I didn't care about this place so much, I'd be on the first bus to Watoga. Joking. a bit of a laugh while saying it. She hates Watoga.
78 002B915E 002B916A Earthquakes every other day, lawless thugs walking right down main street, and we're practically swimming in every kind of drug known to man! Disappointed more than upset
79 002B915F 002B9170 What do I think about how things are going in Welch? Well, it can't get much worse. Frustrated
80 002B9160 002B9171 The lawman bails, I pay the boys a little distraction fee, and everyone's happy. The people understand me. The people need me! And I'm pleased to provide. Prideful, but trying to convince himself as much as his mother.
81 002B9161 002B9166 I'm just about to pull my weapon and make things "interesting", when a group of old coal men show up. They start hollering about how those Auto-Miners have gone topsy-turvy, and are causing all kinds of mayhem back in Mine Shaft Elaine! Excited, and embellishing a bit
82 002B9162 002B9167 Picked up the goods, and had the usual uneventful trip most of the way back. Hit the outskirts of Welch, and whad'ya know - the local sheriff is waiting for me. Calm and direct
83 002B9163 002B916B While back I was doing a little run for the Duchess, and found out just how much this city loves me. Proud and forceful
84 002B9164 002B916E I'm a businessman. People demand things, and I supply them. Capitalism at its finest, right? Convincing, but with a tinge of understanding that it's stretching the truth
85 002B9165 002B916C I hate it when you talk like I'm a criminal, Ma. Annoyed, but loving
86 00331BDB 00331BE9 You find me some candidates with the wherewithal to survive here or else I'll find someone who will. Stern. You're addressing a subordinate who's disappointed you. And you're mad.
87 00331BDD 00331BE6 I presume you've seen to it that the Technology Support group has updated the Senior Executive exam with my clarified answers. Stern. You're addressing a subordinate who's disappointed you. And you're mad. But some real venom on "clarified."
88 I'm growing... weary of the spineless ... "executives" you've been sending me. Stern. You're addressing a subordinate who's disappointed you. And you're mad.
89 00331BDE 00331BE8 Hanover. This is Daniel Hornwright. Stern. You're addressing a subordinate who's disappointed you. And you're mad.
90 003558EB 003558FA F-7n proved a bit more... potent than expected, so you'll need my password to collect a canister from the dispensary. Promethean7. Sinister, demanding. You're an evil scientist ordering around a subordinate.
91 003558EC 003558FE And be aware. We were also forced to tweak the formula, after Subject #21 left without authorization. Sinister, demanding. You're an evil scientist ordering around a subordinate.
92 A phermonic component was added to mark the gestating hosts. So if for some reason one gets away again... you may use the dogs to find them. Sinister, demanding. You're an evil scientist ordering around a subordinate. Some smirk on that very last part.
93 003558ED 003558F5 Once you've deposited that into the ingredient collector upstairs, you'll just need a host to allow the sample to gestate. Sinister, demanding. You're an evil scientist ordering around a subordinate.
94 Subject #113 should be able to take another harvesting. Sinister, demanding. You're an evil scientist ordering around a subordinate.
95 003558EE 00355920 Mitchell. Higher-ups need a fresh batch of tissue samples infected with F-7n. Today. Sinister, demanding. You're an evil scientist ordering around a subordinate.
96 They received a furtive message from Agriculture. And Secretary Eckhart is not a man to be kept waiting. Sinister, demanding. You're an evil scientist ordering around a subordinate.
97 0038CD32 0038CD4D Good. We should get started. If there's anyone still alive down there, I think they've suffered enough. Wrapping up the conversation. You're pleased with how this went, but you're realizing this will be the easiest part.
98 0038CD33 0038CD5E Certainly won't have to travel far to get yourselves into trouble. RERCORD. You're onboard with an idea that was pitched at you. Hiding your glee that your idea was accepted.
99 0038CD34 0038CD56 I'll work on getting them a place to train. Charleston Fire Department seems like the natural spot. Still staying civil, but now getting into the nitty-gritty of getting this all up and running.
100 0038CD35 0038CD4A Oh lordy, I think she likes it. Chuckle at the end of the line. Your weird suggestion seems like it's going to stick.
101 0038CD36 0038CD5A ... I suppose we don't need to go with the first idea we come up with. But for now, I'd like you to reach out to those firemen. Give a long pause before starting. Still trying to be civil, but the idea your partner just but out is ... out there. RERECORD. Long pause at start.
102 Convince them to get onboard with the... Fire Breathers. Let them know it's important. Prestigious. RERCORD. You're giving into someone else's idea you're not quite onboard with when you say "Prestigious." Make it more reluctant.
103 0038CD37 0038CD5F Huh... well, gramps was a moonshiner. Made hooch so strong, normal folk couldn't come within a quarter-mile of it. Telling an old story. Getting on board with this plan because you're getting to put your stamp on it.
104 Everyone called him and his boys the "Fire Breathers." Resilient sons-a-guns. What about that? Telling an old story. Getting on board with this plan because you're getting to put your stamp on it.
105 0038CD38 0038CD52 Hmm. Any suggestions? Still a bit surprised the direction this conversation has turned, but staying calm.
106 0038CD39 0038CD53 Green Berets. Smokejumpers. Navy Seals. You want someone to sign up for dangerous duty, needs to be some prestige behind it. Brainstorming.
107 You give 'em a name, a new designation, extra rations, maybe, I'll guarantee you'll get the volunteers you're looking for. Brainstorming.
108 0038CD3A 0038CD4F A name? The person you're talking to threw out an idea that caught you off guard.
109 0038CD3B 0038CD5B Tell you what you ought to do... you ought to give 'em a name. You're now thinking about how you can get this group to succeed.
110 0038CD3C 0038CD5D I understand what I'm asking. The person just threw a lot of reasons at you why this is a bad idea. You're aware of the issues.
111 0038CD3D 0038CD50 Anyone you send into all that smoke is going to need training, though. Need to be whip smart if they're gonna survive someplace that hostile. You're onboard with this idea now, but there's still a lot of problems with this plan. You're going through them.
112 And breathing equipment's finicky as hell. Whole lot of care and maintenance if they're gonna be out there for hours, let alone days. You're onboard with this idea now, but there's still a lot of problems with this plan. You're going through them.
113 You're talking about a whole new division here. You're onboard with this idea now, but there's still a lot of problems with this plan. You're going through them.
114 0038CD3E 0038CD51 Thank you. You got what you wanted. Still remaining civil.
115 0038CD3F 0038CD60 ... fine. We got a couple folks from the Charleston Fire Department. Begrudingly agreeing to an idea you think is risky (though, after what you just heard, know it's ultimately the right thing to do).
116 I can talk to them, see what they have to say about gettin' set up for those sorts of operations. Begrudgingly agreeing to an idea you think is risky (though, after what you just heard, know it's ultimately the right thing to do).
117 0038CD40 0038CD55 Most likely they did. But right now we don't know and don't have a safe way of finding out. Striving to keep the conversation productive.
118 And that's why I wanted your help, Melody, on how we can get there. Striving to keep the conversation productive.
119 0038CD41 0038CD59 Bramwell? Come on, now! You really think the Hornwrights or the Garrahans didn't fly off to some private island the moment the air raid sirens turned on? Bramwell is where the rich folks live.
120 0038CD42 0038CD54 I'm not thrilled about sending our people into a place that's actively toxic either... The person you're talking to said your idea to start a high-risk fire fighting squad is terrible. You're trying to remain calm.
121 ... but there are whole towns down there we still haven't reached out to: Welch, Beckley, Bramwell. The person you're talking to said your idea to start a high-risk fire fighting squad is terrible. You're trying to remain calm.
122 0038CD43 0038CD58 Good, 'cause now we can get on record that I think this idea's god-damned looney. You're being recorded by someone who wants your thoughts on the creation of a high-risk fire fighting squad.
123 0038CD44 0038CD5C All right. We're recording. Getting ready for a conversation you think will be heated.
124 0038CD45 0038CD61 And, most important, don't come back all crispy. Because I love what I'm looking at right now. Speaking softly into a tape recorder. You're making a message for someone you love. Last line should be really tender.
125 0038CD46 0038CD4E Just make sure you don't forget the basics with all this fancy new training. Always check your seals. It's stop, drop, then roll. The order's important. Speaking softly into a tape recorder. You're making a message for someone you love.
126 0038CD47 0038CD4C Heh. Honestly, though... ain't no Responder alive who's a better pick for that crew than you. Speaking softly into a tape recorder. You're making a message for someone you love. Smile while you say this. You're really proud of this woman.
127 0038CD49 0038CD57 Hey Rita. So, right now, you're asleep, enjoying your last peaceful night's rest for God knows how long... Speaking softly into a tape recorder. You're making a message for someone you love.
128 ... and I thought I'd record something for you to remember me by while you're locked away inside Charleston Fire Department... Speaking softly into a tape recorder. You're making a message for someone you love.
129 ... training for the prestigious opportunity to dive face first into a bunch of mine fires with the rest of those Fire Breather nut jobs. Speaking softly into a tape recorder. You're making a message for someone you love.
130 003B7607 003B761C But there's no time to waste. Get a move on, recruit. And welcome to the Fire Breathers. Talking into a recorder.
131 003B7608 003B761E That'll grant you access to our internal computer system. Once that's done, your captain should be able to point you to your first assignment. Talking into a recorder.
132 003B7609 003B7616 Head back to Charleston Fire Department and have the active captain register you for duty. Talking into a recorder.
133 003B760A 003AAB50 Hello again, recruit. And congratulations. If you're hearing this, it means you've earned yourself a place in the Fire Breathers. Talking into a recorder.
134 003B760B 003B7617 I get this is extreme, but we need to know if you can hack it before you've got a half-dozen other people counting on you. Talking into a recorder. RERECORD. More dire.
135 003B760C 003B761B So, time to prove you can put it to good use. Suit-up, strap-in, and move out, recruit. Talking into a recorder. Bit of a pep-talk at the end. RERECORD. More dire.
136 003B760D 003B7614 We figured out the Scorched aren't big fans of depleted Ultracite. Took a field trip to AMS HQ to figure out how to make the stuff, but it's the most effective tool we've found for putting them down. Talking into a recorder. Put some "umph" on the second sentence. You were the one who went on that "field trip." It sucked. RERECORD. More dire.
137 003B760E 003B7618 But you're not going in empty-handed. Along with your suit, you've been issued a modified 10mm. Talking into a recorder. RERECORD. More dire.
138 003B760F 003B7619 All you've got to do is survive a little slice of living hell and all the Scorched that call it home. Talking into a recorder. Bit of a grim smirk. RERECORD. More dire.
139 003B7610 003B7615 Exam's simple. Reach the bottom of the mine, hit the emergency beacon down there, and come back up. Talking into a recorder. RERECORD. More dire.
140 003B7611 003B761A ... and the toxicity of the area means there's no better crew to do it than the Fire Breathers. Talking into a recorder. RERECORD. More dire.
141 003B7612 003B761D I'm going to try and make this brief - the Scorched coming through Big Bend Tunnel need to be stopped... Talking into a recorder. RERECORD. More dire.
142 003B7613 003AAB51 Welcome, recruit, to your final exam. I'm Hank Madigan, Fire Breather lieutenant. Talking into a recorder. Initially puzzled, but then more formal. RERECORD. More dire.
143 003CB3BE 003CB432 No. Garrahan can wait. You need rest. Head up to Morgantown. That Excavator armor'll still be there. Now go. Stern, but caring.
144 003CB3BF 003CB457 Bingo. You give a day or two, I can head back down there, see what I can- Starting to get genuinely excited, ignoring your exhaustion. This is what you live for.
145 003CB3C0 003CB447 Locals would hopefully be a lot less inclined to shoot first. Cracking a joke.
146 003CB3C1 003CB439 No kidding. But that Excavator armor they made. Ruined the company? Rumor is it's tough as nails, and they've still got the plans on site. Recounting what happened on the very arduous journey you just completed. Getting excited about what could be a good lead on some new tech.
147 Could you imagine what a patrol would be like if we could figure out how to make those things? Recounting what happened on the very arduous journey you just completed. Getting excited about what could be a good lead on some new tech.
148 003CB3C2 003CB43E Been a long time since I've heard "good news" and "Garrahan Mining" said back to back. Cracking a joke.
149 003CB3C3 003CB48D Oh. And actual good news. Garrahan Mining. Recounting what happened on the very arduous journey you just completed.
150 003CB3C4 003CB41B So we've only lost Welch, Beckley, Lewisburg and everything around 'em. Little blessings, I suppose. A bit sarcastic. You just heard not great news, but things aren't actively getting worse.
151 003CB3C5 003CB42A Ash is piling up faster than we expected. Recounting what happened on the very arduous journey you just completed.
152 But going by the maps the earlier teams did, it at least doesn't seem to be spreading anymore. Recounting what happened on the very arduous journey you just completed.
153 003CB3C6 003CB438 Sounds about par for the course. Seems there's not a sane mind south of Mount Blair. Anything else? Taking a debrief. No nonsense.
154 003CB3C7 003CB446 Well, I found some more survivors. Started shooting at me the second they saw me, like the rest. Recounting what happened on the very arduous journey you just completed.
155 003CB3C8 003CB456 Hmph. So, how's it look out there, Hank? "Hmph" - someone just told you you don't need their permission. You're glad they remember that. Line 2- down to business.
156 003CB3C9 003CB473 You're captain, Melody. Don't need my permission. Joking, but covering for your exhaustion. You just got back from a very hard foray into dangerous territory.
157 003CB3CA 003CB41C You don't mind if I record? Turning on a tape recorder.
158 003CB3CB 003CB42B Oh god. Oh my god. You're alone in this mine and now another nuke warning has come on the radio. You're terrified.
159 003CB3CC 003CB41D Attention citizens. Nuclear strike imminent. Please exit the area at your earliest convenience. Thank you for your cooperation. Robotic.
160 003CB3CD 003CB474 Jesus, George. Don't ... fuck. George! Come back! Your coworker just suggested leaving the mine while there are nukes going on outside. Yelling after him as he leaves.
161 003CB3CE 003CB419 Get off me, Luann! I'm leaving. You're deep in a mine and you're terrified because a mine just went off above your heads. Your coworker wants to stay down here.
162 003CB3CF 003CB471 You don't have the slightest idea what's happening up there! Your coworker just suggested leaving the mine while there are nukes going on outside. You think he's out of his mind.
163 003CB3D0 003CB454 This isn't a vault, Luann! We don't know if this place will hold! You're deep in a mine and you're terrified because a mine just went off above your heads. Your coworker wants to stay down here.
164 003CB3D1 003CB443 Out of here? Are you crazy? We need shelter. This is shelter. Your coworker just suggested leaving the mine while there are nukes going on outside.
165 003CB3D2 003CB435 No. No. No. No. Jesus Christ. We need to get out of here. You're deep in a mine and you're terrified because a mine just went off above your heads.
166 003CB3D3 003CB426 Nuclear strike. It said nuclear strike. Quite horror. You just realized your fear was correct - you're deep in a mine and a nuke just went off up above.
167 003CB3D4 003CB417 What the hell was that? Was that a... You're deep in a mine and just felt a massive rumble and heard a blast.
168 003CB3D5 003CB462 Empty. Sound of a nuke explosion above ground should go here.
169 003CB3D6 003CB452 Something about "convenience." Probably just an ad for Red Rocket, we get 'em all the--- You're deep in a mine. Your coworker is freaking out. A strange ad just played on the radio.
170 003CB3D7 003CB442 What'd it say? Concerned. You're deep inside a mine and a strange radio broadcast just came through.
171 003CB3D8 003CB43A Attention citizens. Nuclear strike imminent. Please exit the area at your earliest convenience. Thank you for your cooperation. Robotic.
172 003CB3D9 003CB44A I don't hear anything. Your coworker, deep inside this mine with you, is suddenly very scared. You don't hear what she's hearing.
173 003CB3DA 003CB434 George. George! You hear that? Listen. Concerned. You're deep inside a mine and you think you hear air raid sirens.
174 003CB3DC 003CB44F And a pile of dead trains. Singing to yourself a bit.
175 003CB3DD 003CB43F Now it's just James. Singing to yourself a bit.
176 003CB3DE 003CB430 Since the world did blow! Singing to yourself a bit.
177 003CB3DF 003CB428 The trains don't go. Singing to yourself a bit.
178 003CB3E0 003CB453 Waiting in vain. Singing to yourself a bit.
179 003CB3E1 003CB425 So here I sit. Singing to yourself a bit.
180 003CB3E2 003CB416 And I like trains. Singing to yourself a bit.
181 003CB3E3 003CB422 My name is James. Singing to yourself a bit.
182 003CB3E4 003CB48E Boys, there is no 197 from DC. And if you know what's good for you, you'll stop asking questions about it. Now gimme that tape. A veiled threat. You're covering up a secret. "One-Ninety-Seven."
183 003CB3E5 003CB45C But, but that's not true. We saw it. We unloaded the damn thing. Confused. You were just told you didn't have the experience you thought you did.
184 003CB3E6 003CB44E Look, I don't know what you think you saw, but there is no 197 out of DC. Here. Can look at the manifest yourself. Cool. You're covering up a secret. "One-Ninety-Seven."
185 003CB3E7 003CB43D See! I told you, Walter. There's something screwy going on. This is the third shipment this month-- Urgent. You want to get this all documented. You just heard a story that confirms a conspiracy you believe. You're cut off.
186 003CB3E8 003CB42D Yeah. Guy said his name was Grey. Kept asking what I was doing. If I'd seen anything. One of your coworkers got real concerned after you told him a story about a train you unloaded.
187 003CB3E9 003CB41F Wait. The 197? You just realized the person talking to you mentioned something they shouldn't have. "One-Ninety-Seven."
188 003CB3EA 003CB47B And as soon as it's off the train, this creepy guy in a suit comes out of nowhere, starts questioning me. One of your coworkers got real concerned after you told him a story about a train you unloaded. Getting a bit more confident.
189 003CB3EB 003CB45A Uh huh. You've been ordered to record this conversation instead of doing your job. Now you're bored.
190 003CB3EC 003CB44C Uh, yeah. Sure. So we were unloading the 197 from DC. Huge set of containers. Industrial-sized. Locked up like Fort Knox. A bit puzzled. One of your coworkers got real concerned after you told him a story about a train you unloaded. "One-Ninety-Seven."
191 003CB3ED 003CB44B Good. Dan, tell him what you told me. Urgent. You want to get this all documented. You just heard a story that confirms a conspiracy you believe.
192 003CB3EE 003CB41A It's on. You've been ordered to record this conversation instead of doing your job. You're irritated.
193 003CB3EF 003CB45E You got that thing recording, Walter? Urgent. You want to get this all documented. You just heard a story that confirms a conspiracy you believe.
194 003CB3F0 003CB476 You know where to find the Duchess. Calm, cool, collected. You're speaking in a clandestine manner about guns you've procured for this man.
195 003CB3F1 003CB429 Bring the money to my place in Welch. Calm, cool, collected. You're speaking in a clandestine manner about guns you've procured for this man.
196 003CB3F2 003CB42E But we don't do deliveries. Calm, cool, collected. You're speaking in a clandestine manner about guns you've procured for this man.
197 003CB3F3 003CB445 Along with all the nails and safety equipment you could need. Calm, cool, collected. You're speaking in a clandestine manner about guns you've procured for this man.
198 003CB3F4 003CB42F Wanted to let you know I've procured those tools you and your boys were asking after. Calm, cool, collected. You're speaking in a clandestine manner about guns you've procured for this man. Hang on "tools" for a moment.
199 003CB3F5 003CB421 Hello Mick. Calm, cool, collected. You're speaking in a clandestine manner about guns you've procured for this man.

201 003CB3F7 003CB472 We're looking for talented men ... and gals! ... interested in earning good pay for hard work... 50s salesman

204 003CB3F9 003CB45D Looking for a new career? Like working with your hands? Finding solutions to challenging problems? Fixing complex machinery in exciting environments? 50s salesman
205 003CB3FA 003CB41E Yes, ma'am. Making that order happen.
206 003CB3FB 003CB440 Yes, ma'am? Ready to take an order.
207 003CB3FC 003CB475 Go pay Betty a visit. Let her know this is the last credit she's ever getting. Long pause before starting. Complete change in attitude. You're cool. Hard. Ruthless.
208 I'll keep Agent Danger occupied while you make your point crystal clear. Cool. Ruthless. "Make your point crystal clear" should be menacing (but don't overdo it. Keep it cool).
209 003CB3FD 003CB431 ... Butch. Long pause before starting. Complete change in attitude. You're cool. Hard. Ruthless.
210 003CB3FE 003CB45F That's my girl. Go quick and you can have Butch's too! Yelling as the girl runs out the door.
211 003CB3FF 003CB433 Agent Danger can do that! Very excited. You're about to get a soda, a rare treat.
212 003CB400 003CB459 Agent Danger, would you be willing to take a mission for me? I need three of the coldest, iciest Nuka-Colas they've got down at Wabash's. Brightening up. You've got an idea.
213 If I gave you some money, would you be willing to go get them for me? One of 'em's got your name on it. Very sweet.
214 003CB401 003CB424 Uh, I think so, ma'am. You're not sure what to make of someone telling you "you're my one weakness in this world."
215 003CB402 003CB449 Because she knows you're my one weakness in this world. Sweetly. The child's mother sent her to collect drugs for her. You don't like her using her child like this.
216 003CB403 003CB458 Yes, ma'am.
217 003CB404 003CB423 Momma sent you to do her begging. A bit disappointed. The child's mother sent her to collect drugs for her. You don't like her using her child like this.
218 003CB405 003CB448 Momma said, go ask Ms. Duchess if she can cop us a two extra tabs of Buffout. Gerald can't work without it and she knows we're good for it. Reciting what you were told.
219 003CB406 003CB494 Hmm. I suppose it doesn't. Now, to what do I owe the distinct pleasure? This little girl lights up your day every time you see her.
220 003CB407 003CB420 That doesn't sound like a particularly good cookie, ma'am. Someone just described you as a "sharp cookie." You're a bit confused, as that sounds awful.
221 003CB408 003CB444 Well, aren't you a sharp cookie. Happy to see this little girl, who you know well. She just described out she outwitted her mother.
222 003CB409 003CB48C Yes. Momma said we can't play Agent Tornado anymore. Didn't say anything about Agent Danger. Chipper. You're glad to see the woman you're talking to. Proud of yourself that you out thought your mother.
223 003CB40A 003CB436 Is that so? Happy to see this little girl, who you know well, but previously went by another name.
224 003CB40B 003CB45B Yes, ma'am. Agent Tornado's retired. Too much collateral damage during missions. Chipper. You're glad to see the woman you're talking to. A little bashful at the end.
225 003CB40C 003CB427 Oh, it's Agent Danger today? Happy to see this little girl, who you know well, but previously went by another name.
226 003CB40D 003CB44D Agent Danger, reporting, ma'am. Chipper. You're glad to see the woman you're talking to.
227 003CB40E 003CB418 That's where you're wrong, son. Cool, but firm. You've got guns trained on these men. They just don't know it yet. Whistle at the end of this line. Gun shots ring out.
228 003CB40F 003CB43C Sir, I'm going to ask you one more time. Get back in your house. The only people in trouble are the Kaminskis ... for now. No longer yelling, but talking to someone very forcefully. You suddenly feel a whole lot less safe.
229 003CB410 003CB43B You company boys take our jobs. Take our dignity. Now you want our homes, too? I'd say it concerns me plenty. Cool, but firm. You've got guns trained on these men. They just don't know it yet.
230 003CB411 003CB461 Sir, this does not concern you. Please step back. No longer yelling, but talking to someone very forcefully. You suddenly feel a whole lot less safe.
231 003CB412 003CB42C Don't think they're coming out, boys. Cool, but firm. You've got guns trained on these men. They just don't know it yet.
232 003CB413 003CB451 Mr. and Mrs. Armand Kaminski. This is your final warning. Your domicile is situated on top of AMS property. Yelling. You're here to evict a family from their home.
233 You have 15 seconds to exit your home. If you do not do so, my men and I are well within our rights to remove you by force. Yelling. You're here to evict a family from their home.
234 003CD8CE 003CD8D1 I can't believe we lost.
235 We had one chance to prove that our Excavator Power Armor could beat the Hornwright Auto-Miner, and we blew it.
236 Why Vivian came up with her ridiculous challenge is beyond me.
237 She never even consulted with us first, just rolled it out there like a prize fight.
238 Then the newspapers got a hold of it, and everything blew out of proportion. Now we're the laughingstock of the mining industry.
239 Who in their right mind would buy any products from us after that? No one. rhetorical question
240 So here I am, staring at the phone, waiting for the inevitable call to shut the R&D department down.
241 Vivian betted all our chips on this project, and Garrahan Mining has wiped out.
242 I wonder if Hornwright is hiring.
243 003CD8CF 003CD8D0 Whew, I'm damn glad that headquarters upgraded the Rockhound's power system.
244 Now that we have reactors installed, we can finally stop depending on the local power grid and diesel engines to keep this baby humming.
245 I can't even count the number of times the machine stalled because of blackouts or the engines quit.
246 Of course, working right next to four nuclear reactors isn't as cozy as it sounds.
247 The engineers say those things are perfectly safe, but they aren't the ones that'll be vaporized after a meltdown.
248 Still, those fat bonuses I've been getting on my paycheck are hard to ignore, so looks like I'll be staying for a while.
249 Anyway, it's almost time to change out the Ignition Cores. I'll record more later if I have the time.
250 004E7172 004E719B I am. Consider this interview my formal resignation. Spread the word, Ms. Carter. All I ask is that my warning goes with it ... and nothing else. Being interviewed by a member of the press. You realized you have something this woman wants. Leaning into it to get what you want.
251 Now, if you wouldn't mind. My daughter and I have a lot to do. We're on our own out here, after all. Being interviewed by a member of the press. Cordially showing her the door.
252 004E7173 004E718E ... I, I meant no offense. You just have to know how this looks from my end. You're conducting an interview. You just crossed a line and got yelled at. You're keeping cool.
253 004E7174 004E7197 My health is not the issue here, Ms. Carter! These are peoples' lives! Being interviewed by a member of the press. She just crossed a line by implying you might be crazy.
254 The Executive branch, captains of industry, the Department of Agriculture! I peeked into their world and they threatened my life! My daughter's life! Being interviewed by a member of the press. She just crossed a line by implying you might be crazy.
255 We're just pawns to them! And the only way we survive ... is to step off the board. All I'm asking ... is that you share that message. Angry initially, but finally calming yourself.
256 004E7175 004E718A Senator, I'm not trying to be rude here, but it sounds like you're trying to start a panic, and without evidence, I'm not willing to be a part of that. You're conducting an interview. You just heard some out there claims and are skeptical about their truth.
257 I also have it under the strictest confidence that you've been seen making multiple visits to a certain Charleston neurologist as of... You're explaining to this Senator why you're not inclined to believe him (he has early onset dementia). The Senator cuts you off.
258 004E7176 004E7193 You're going to have to, Ms. Carter. I'm trying to save lives, not put more at risk by exposing my sources. Being interviewed by a member of the press. He needs to be a lot more on edge. This is a matter of life and death to Blackwell.
259 004E7177 004E719D And I'm just supposed to take your word for it? You're conducting an interview. You just heard some out there claims and are skeptical about their truth.
260 004E7178 004E718F This is not some doomsday fever dream, if that's what you're asking, Ms. Carter. I received my information from reliable sources, yes. Being interviewed by a member of the press. He needs to be a lot more on edge. This is a matter of life and death to Blackwell.
261 004E7179 004E7190 Sinister forces? The end is coming? Senator, you're making some big claims here. Do you have evidence to back it up? You're conducting an interview. You just heard some out there claims and are skeptical about their truth.
262 004E717A 004E7199 There are sinister forces at work in the halls of government. This is your big ptich. Your life was threatened by these sinister forces. You don't want anyone else to die either.
263 I and my fellow members of the Free States will no longer be shackled to the putrefying corpse of this nation. This is your big ptich. Your life was threatened by these sinister forces. You don't want anyone else to die either.
264 Nor should anyone who values their lives. There is only one recourse left for the people of the United States: strike out on your own. This is your big pitch. Your life was threatened by these sinister forces. You don't want anyone else to die either.
265 Take whatever you can carry, get off the grid and get there fast. The end is coming, Ms. Carter. This is your big pitch. Your life was threatened by these sinister forces. You don't want anyone else to die either.
266 And when it does, your government has no interest in keeping you safe. This is your big pitch. Your life was threatened by these sinister forces. You don't want anyone else to die either.
267 004E717B 004E718C What are you talking about Senator? Interviewing a controversial and elusive Senator. Genuinely puzzled. The Senator just asked for your help in "saving people."
268 004E717C 004E7195 Leaving was the only way I thought I'd be able to protect my family, Ms. Carter. RERECORD. He needs to be a lot more on edge. This is a matter of life and death to Blackwell. Being interviewed by a member of the press.
269 But I've since realized that I'd left a lot of other people I care about in grave danger. I was hoping you could help me correct that. Asking for help with getting your story out there.
270 004E717D 004E7188 And why is that, Senator? Why did you leave your position so suddenly? Interviewing a controversial and elusive Senator. Dialed in. You're going into interview mode.
271 004E717E 004E7198 I apologize for that. Maintaining a low profile is a requirement for us now. RERECORD. He needs to be a lot more on edge. This is a matter of life and death to Blackwell. Being interviewed by a member of the press.
272 004E717F 004E7191 It was ... an experience. Not a lot of my interviews start with a bag over my heard. Just glad it didn't end up being a prank, I suppose. Interviewing a controversial and elusive Senator.
273 004E7180 004E7194 Of course, Ms. Carter. I hope the trek wasn't too arduous. RERECORD. He needs to be a lot more on edge. This is a matter of life and death to Blackwell. Being interviewed by a member of the press.
274 004E7181 004E718B All right. It's recording. Thank you again for reaching out to me. I can't tell you how shocked I was to find out your letter was the real deal. Turning on a tape recorder. You're about to interview a controversial and elusive Senator.
275 004E7182 004E719C We're coming for you. And your family. This was your warning. You're trying to scare a local Senator into leaving town.
276 004E7183 004E7192 You've been sticking your nose where it doesn't belong, Samuel. And now you've gone too far. You're trying to scare a local Senator into leaving town.
277 004E7184 004E7189 Keeps going like that. Your daughter Judy's a busy woman, Senator. But not hard to find. You're trying to scare a local Senator into leaving town.
278 004E7185 004E7196 Noon. Family Medicine rotation, Vault-Tec U Free Clinic. You're reading off the school schedule of your target's daughter. You're trying to scare him into leaving town.
279 004E7186 004E718D 10:30 Radiation Therapy Training, Lab 206. You're reading off the school schedule of your target's daughter. You're trying to scare him into leaving town.
280 004E7187 004E719A 9 AM - Degenerative Neurological Conditions, Room 121. You're reading off the school schedule of your target's daughter. You're trying to scare him into leaving town.

1 002B937E 002B93D6 Fine.
2 002B937F 002B9432 Don't. Don't ever contact me again after this.
3 And erase my name off that holotape. I went over the needed repairs, that's enough.
4 002B9380 002B93ED Pleasure doing business with you. We'll recommend you to our friends.
5 002B9381 002B9411 It's just...
6 Aw, shit. Just get me in the van and get me out of here before anyone sees me. Kicking at the gravel. Pretty unhappy about the situation and feeling like a heel.
7 002B9382 002B93FC If you've got a problem with that, we can cancel payment.
8 002B9383 002B941C So that's it then? Just... keep replacing bots and machinery. Let the plant destroy the valley and break up the strikers?
9 002B9384 002B93DB Foreman doesn't give a damn about the ash. The workers brought it on themselves, now they get to live with it.
10 Besides, the bots don't give a damn. All the more reason to continue the workforce change over.
11 002B9385 002B9412 Ain't gonna be easy. Whatever's going on chemically, it's pretty toxic and corrosive at that. Whistle before the line, scratch of the head.
12 You're gonna have to keep making near constant repairs. I can mark the areas, but that's not gonna stop the ash...
13 002B9386 002B9434 Look Mason, I don't need to hear it. Can you keep it running or not?
14 002B9387 002B9418 I dunno what all they put in the furnace, but it's gaumed it up but good.
15 Wouldn't have been so bad if ya'll had just shut damned thing down for a few weeks and cleaned out the blast.
16 But at this point? Whatever it is, at this point it's fused with every damned part from the Furnace to the Smelter and the Mills.
17 002B938A 002B93F6 You forgot your Christmas present! It's bourbon! To remind you of where you come from!! Yelling out the door after him
18 Good. Melody deserves this more anyway. with a grin. Melody is your contact with the Responders
19 002B938B 002B93D5 I. WILL. NEVER!!! Yelling in rage and storming off.
20 002B938C 002B93F9 If you're fixin' to have a fit, best sit down before you bite your tongue clean off. Wouldn't want to ruin my carpet.
21 It's all gonna be donated food, and we'll only keep the lights on for a couple hours.
22 And if your sweet, I might even let you wear the Santa suit.
23 002B938D 002B9404 I- You! Infuriating! Apoplectic, about to have an aneurismal
24 002B938E 002B9416 You think I'm some dumb hick, just on account o' the fact that you abandoned your people and your accent.
25 I know that you're trying to sway the vote next spring by letting your friends horde food.
26 I've checked the ledgers. Don't do in the dark what you don't want brought out in the light, Tanner.
27 002B938F 002B9427 We don't have the supplies! We need to keep them for the war effort!
28 And waiting to hold the town hall till I was out meeting those Brotherhood rebels is beyond deceitful.
29 002B9390 002B93EF Our people need this. They've been struggling on for years through the war, radiation, mutants, and raiders...
30 They need something normal. Something to give them hope that things will be better.
31 002B9392 002B93F5 Oh, sit down Tanner. I swear, you could talk the bark off a tree.
32 002B9393 002B93E7 Stuff it, Abigale.
33 What is this nonsense about throwing a Christmas party? We are already rationing supplies and if we have another winter like '78...
34 002B93A3 002B9417 Test Log 3-12-78-A14 Now a Ghoul. You've been camped out here for a couple years since the bombs fell.

36 While this new solution appears to trigger a vasovagal response in subjects with a complimentary DNA structure, no other reversal.
37 It's no good. I don't know how much of the mutations we've seen are from radiation and what is from the compound we'd been working on. Smash the lab equipment off the table
38 I don't understand how Samson got clearance for aerosolize testing before we even completed lab trials.
39 Did we cause this... skin disease... or is it just a mutation. And what of those whose minds have degraded?
40 Oh great. The breakers just went out. This winter is taking a toll on the lab. Guess I better get to fixing it before the plants freeze.
41 002B93A5 002B93E1 Test log 9-23-77-A10. This is PRE WAR, the character is not yet a Ghoul. Hopefully do this BEFORE a full session of raspy ghoul voice.
42 Animal subject shows no marked increase or decrease in muscle mass.
43 However, those in the flora lab have said that this test run showed an increase in growth by as much as 25%.
44 We felt certain that, due to the component make up fo the solvent, it would have a marked effect on fauna as well...
45 ...but even the inclusion of a matching protein sequence into the solution the resultant distillate fails to show an increase in size or growth rate.
46 Whoa! Okay down... Hey, down! Jessie can you grab it? Aaah! Animal test subject climbing onto the researcher and knocking them to the floor
47 Ugh. What was that about? Thanks. Getting off the ground
48 Ancillary observation: The test subject seems to be strongly drawn to the solution. This bears further testing. Is it the similar protein sequence?
49 002B93A7 002B93DF Good! Finality.
50 Alright Fire Breathers, get out there and run that course like your friends lives depend on it. Serious, but also forgiveness. Some of these recruits barely remember the flood.
51 002B93A8 002B9407 No ma'am! Multiple Recruits. Atteeeention!
52 002B93A9 002B941F What was that?! Drill sergeant.
53 002B93AA 002B93EE No ma'am. Multiple Recruits. Muttered with differing levels of embarrassment.
54 002B93AB 002B93DE You got anything else to say?
55 002B93AC 002B93E0 Now you listen to me before I smack both eyes into one. Domineering, in his face.
56 My husband is somewhere down in "that muck." The ruins of Charleston are a muddy warren even now.
57 So's yer father. And her gran. And their sisters. A lioness pacing. A beat between each. Let it sink in.
58 We spent weeks crawling through "that muck" pulling people out. Spit the words "that muck" at him.
59 Thousands of people died in the Christmas Flood. The dam up river was blown by raiders on Christmas morning.
60 More still were never found. Drowned or buried alive. Go inward. Remembering digging through it.
61 We pulled people out of there for a full year. Almost a whisper, but Sotto Voce
62 So you show some respect. Back up to intensity, but not too harsh. Square the shoulders.
63 002B93AD 002B93F7 I just don't see why we gotta go running through all that muck. Hesitant at first, but also annoyed.
64 002B93AE 002B9410 What was that?
65 You got something to say, you spit it out.
66 002B93AF 002B93FD *Muttering* Something mostly inaudible but to the effect of "And I just cleaned these boots..."
67 002B93B0 002B93DA Alright, settle down recruits. Calm and collected. Addressing some "Fire Breather" recruits, the elite Responders team who goes into the most dangerous situations.
68 I know it looks hard, but the course ain't no hill for a climber. "Ain't no hill for a climber" means that it isn't hard if you're prepared.
69 Just follow the arrows and keep your head on a swivel. The course involves running through the ruins of Charleston, which was wiped out by a flood. There are hostiles.
70 Once you get down a piece, you'll see the capitol.
71 Give that button a whack and follow the course back on over here.
72 002B93B1 002B9402 Are you tired of taxes going to incompetent government bureaucrats? Patriotic music playing in the background. Bright and brassy.
73 Come out on November 2nd and cast your vote in favor Ballot Measure 6! The Appalachian Prosperity Act! Waving flags, so much flag waving!
74 Automate Appalachian government and give the boot to bureaucracy! Emphasis on BOOT
75 This ad paid for by the Citizens for Automation Fund. Fast, quiet disclaimer.
76 002B93B2 002B93FA Okay... Okay! I'm going, you don't have to shove... Disappointed, shutting the recorder off.
77 002B93B3 002B93EB Uh huh. Get out of here before I pull your press badge. Deadpan. Not impressed.
78 002B93B4 002B9414 Dammit.
79 Fine. But there HAVE been reports of people seeing the Mothman.
80 002B93B5 002B9435 You heard her. Closed Session. No reporters.
81 002B93B6 002B9409 Mothman... really. Walking away, shaking your head in disbelief.
82 002B93B7 002B93F0 Okay, that's enough. The Herald used to be an upstanding paper and y'all'r fixin' to turn it into a rag. Frustrated at this nonsense you start slipping more into your accent.
83 This is a Closed Session. Marshall, see that our friend finds her way out.
84 002B93B8 002B942C Has there been any word from Washington yet, ma'am? Are we still at war? Pushy, you haven't been able to get interviews lately.
85 What about the mutations? And the reports of the people seeing the Mothman? Trying to squeeze in as many questions as you can, but overplay it.
86 002B93B9 002B93D7 What? What foolish- Pause a step in your walking, utter disbelief.
87 No. It was people affected by the radiation. There's a passel of them over in the medical center. Slightly peeved at the question.
88 Poor souls... Honest pain for your constituents.
89 002B93BA 002B93E9 Is it true that a mob of zombies attacked the southwestern check point? Pushy, trying to get in some questions
90 002B93BB 002B9437 No. The line of succession clearly states that the Speaker out ranks the Majority Whip. Firm but not unkind. Trying not to take out your annoyance at Holbrook on her.
91 Look, I don't have time for- You don't dislike her, but you really have better things to do than be harassed by reporters.
92 002B93BC 002B93F8 Are we still looking for Governor Evans? Is it true that Holbrook is the acting Governor?
93 002B93BE 002B941B Just what I need... I'm sorry, don't have time right now Ms. Carter. First part under your breath, then put on your press face. You don't dislike her, but you are late to session.
94 002B93BF 002B9430 Speaker Poole! Wait! Please just a moment of your time! Jogging in heels trying to catch up
95 002B93C0 002B9428 No no no no! Godammit David!!! Frantically trying to get your hands free. You know that David Thorpe blew the dam. Roar and then sounds of water.
96 002B93C1 002B93DD What in god's name has he done? Disbelief. You can't see it, but you know it's a tsunami from the dam blowing which will wipe out the entire city.
97 002B93C2 002B9433 I- I don't know. Eyes wild, slight panic. Rumbling sound is growing.
98 002B93C3 002B93F4 What was that?
99 002B93C4 002B93E6 You inbred, backwoods fucking idiots. Start small and build to a kind of crazy laugh of amused disbelief. Gallows humor
100 You have no idea what he's going to- Cut off by a distant but huge explosion. Thorpe just blew the dam next to the city.
101 002B93C5 002B940E Heard a little birdy saying they'd captured you. She and Poole wanted to plan a trade in exchange for a cease fire. Obviously it'd never work.
102 So I sent word ahead to your boyfriend saying you were dead and that they're trying to lie to him. He won't believe a word they say.
103 I figure that'll give you and I plenty of time to talk.
104 002B93C6 002B9426 What? Leave a beat, Confused.
105 002B93C7 002B9415 Thorpe's not gonna do anything because right now he thinks you're dead.
106 002B93C8 002B9431 When he finds out where I am he's gonna-
107 002B93CA 002B93E5 I was just in town to get him a Christmas present. With a spluttering chuckle
108 You know how it is... you always plan get it done, but end up shopping on the evening-
109 AAAAaaaaaghghahhh!! Screaming in pain as the marshall pushes the club into a bullet wound.
110 002B93CE 002B93D9 Jim Greyson was a good man and I'd as soon see you hang for what you did to him and his.
111 But before that, you're going to tell me what Thorpe is planning.
112 002B93D3 002B941A Aahhgh!! Fuck! When I get ou- Waking up in blinding pain from gunshots only to be cut off by a backhand from the Marshall.
113 002B93D4 002B942F Well, it seems the little birdy brought one back alive. Furious but more smoldering than hot.
114 Get up. Ordering a raider who is in a cell to get up
115 003A0811 003A0812 *zapping sound* Holbrook is hitting Roselynn with a shock baton
116 003A09AE 003A09AF *patriotic music* No VO, this is a queue for patriotic music to play in the background
117 003D6C2F 003D6C32 *Chaotic sounds of flooding*
118 003D6C30 003D6C34 *Distant rush of water*
119 003D6C31 003D6C33 *Distant explosion*

# Dialog Topic Form ID Response Text Script Notes
1 002B7810 002B783F Edie, darling Edie... how delicious you were. the sweet taste of your flesh as... as it passed down my throat. You are on verge changing from man to beast, losing your mind, almost split personality
2 The syrupy... warmth of your blood... as it filled my stomach. You are on verge changing from man to beast, losing your mind, almost split personality
3 Wait... what... what have I done? No! Edie, she's dead! I killed her! I ATE her. Oh no, no no... You are on verge changing from man to beast, losing your mind, almost split personality
4 But... but, I had to. I must eat... so hungry, starving. Need more... more flesh, more blood. Need more... find... more... You are on verge changing from man to beast, losing your mind, almost split personality
5 002B7811 002B7832 When DuBois dropped me off at Bolton Greens, I was horrified.
6 Fourth in line for the Westbrooke fortune, and Momsy and Pa-pa had the nerve to leave me at a glorified daycare center while they travel the world?
7 Ridiculous. with a mocking laugh
8 To make matters worse, I'm forced to hobnob with the other children, some of whom are mere... millionaires. Ugh, the thought makes my skin crawl. as if millionaire was so beneath you, it's disgusting
9 The only saving grace of this prison is that they employ a sommelier in the dining room.
10 Well, it's time to go fox hunting again. Oh drat, I appear to have scuffed my ostrich jodhpur boots. jodhpur = "jahd-per"
11 I suppose I'll have to use the... ugh, calfskin ones instead. again, as if the mere thought of wearing that kind of boot is disgusting
12 002B7812 002B7844 Yeah, no sweat there Cyrus. Don't even worry about it. whew, you got out of that one
13 Anyway, uh, since I'm here, I need you to look at these plans for a ventilatio..., uh, I mean " for Spiritual Conduits," I want to have installed. You're trying to hide another scheme using new age slang you just made up - fake friendliness
14 002B7813 002B782E Very well. Perhaps I'm worrying needlessly.
15 After all, it is you who has gifted us with this new direction and brought so many people here to achieve wholeness.
16 002B7814 002B7837 No, no. I'm fine, quite balanced. Everything is great. No more anointing please. blowing it off, you don't buy into the new age claptrap
17 002B7815 002B7842 Come now, Disciple Simon. You're beginning to sound similar to when you first arrived at our doorstep. More genuine concern than suspicion
18 Oh my, perhaps your balance has shifted. Did you wish to be anointed in oils for a cleansing?
19 002B7816 002B784B Don't let those sorts of matters worry you, Cyrus. After all, that's why you appointed me as the Palace's business manager. Trying to divert away from him discovering you're stealing money from the cult
20 You just go and get naked and run around lighting incense, painting watermelons, or whatever you need to do. Leave the rest to me. false concern
21 002B7817 002B783D Quite the opposite. By the time they depart, they appear blissful and enlightened. It's wonderful!
22 No, it's a far more material issue, I'm afraid. The amount of money that you're spending to advertise the Palace has me concerned.
23 002B7818 002B784A You mean the uh, "Transitory Disciple Program?" What's the problem? Are the guests complaining? This was a fake cover for a money making scheme you set up - fake concern
24 002B7819 002B7834 Yes, indeed I did, Disciple Simon.
25 I'm proud of everything you've accomplished here in such a short time, but I'm having concerns about our "new direction."
26 002B781A 002B7830 Yeah, yeah, warm greetings, and wholeness, and all that... You, uh, wanted to see me?
27 002B781B 002B7831 Warm greetings, friend!
28 002B781C 002B7840 I had another patient visit my office complaining of intermittent headaches this week.
29 I'm certain the root cause is the same as other similar cases, dielectric heating caused by the site's EM field. "EM" = eee - emm (read out the letters), dielectric = die - electric
30 As usual, I've prescribed some painkillers and a hood to assist with insulation.
31 I've asked the site director if we could reduce the array's output to a tolerable level until we have shielding installed throughout the facility.
32 Unfortunately, our schedule at NIRA is tight, and it appears the director is unwilling to accommodate my request.
33 Apparently, he considers the project much more important than the health and welfare of our personnel.
34 002B781D 002B783E Goddamn it. Saying aloud to self almost under breath
35 Corporal Gibbons, put her in a body bag. Private Zeleski, go find the kid.
36 002B781E 002B7845 (Sound of a single gunshot and then a body dropping to the ground)
37 002B781F 002B7836 No! Get out of my house! Dalton is only sick! He'll get better! You people can't take him like you took the others! You can't! I won't let you! Angry/Sad, maybe on verge of tears? You're about to lunge at an armed soldier to protect your child.
38 002B7820 002B7848 Put down the knife, Ms. Sherman. I won't ask again. Concerned, but still firm
39 002B7821 002B783A (Sound of a knife being lifted from a table)
40 002B7822 002B7846 Ma'am! If you don't move aside right now, we'll move you ourselves. Do you understand? Shouting "Ma'am" to interrupt the lady you're speaking to. Then calm but very firm.
41 002B7823 002B783B The hell I don't have a choice! You're not moving that child one inch or so help me I'll... You'll be interrupted at the end. You're livid, they are trying to take your child
42 002B7824 002B7835 You have no choice. Where is he ma'am? authoritative
43 002B7825 002B7847 What? Over my dead body! He's sick, he's not going anywhere! Shocked, angry and afraid - they want to take your child
44 002B7826 002B7838 On behalf of the U.S. Army and West-Tek, you're hereby ordered to hand over custody of your child, "Dalton Sherman," over to us immediately. Tek = "Tech"
45 002B7827 002B7841 Y-Yes?
46 002B7828 002B782F (Sound of deadbolt sliding open and door opening)
47 002B7829 002B7839 Just open the door, Ms. Sherman. Sound should be from as if behind a door - Line read: still official, but a bit irritated
48 002B782A 002B7833 What do you want? Nervous, still speaking through a door.
49 002B782B 002B7843 U.S. Army, ma'am. Open up, please. Sound should be if from behind a closed door
50 002B782C 002B7849 Who is it? Nervous, you're worried who's at the door
51 002B782D 002B783C (Pounding on door - as if heard from inside a house)
52 002CB453 002CB4B0 Keep her locked up. We'll worry about findin' a way to send a message up there tomorrow. Satisfied with this now. Still tired.
53 002CB454 002CB4E1 You wouldn't... you won't! He'll kill you, He'll kill you all! She realizes Melody's plan could work, and this frightens her. She screams the last part while being dragged away. Move away from mic as it happens
54 002CB455 002CB4AC Well, well, gentlemen. I think I know how to finally draw our number one most wanted outlaw outta hiding. Feeling very crafty now.
55 002CB456 002CB4A7 You know he's the guy who killed two very brave and selfless Responders who went up to your... resort up there to offer help, way back when. Upset and stern. She's disgusted with this raider in front of her. But she's forming a plan.
56 002CB457 002CB4A3 David, huh? So we've got David Thorpe's what... girlfriend here? A little bit of a laugh at the start. Realizing she has a potential bargaining chip here.
57 002CB458 002CB4C8 You'll send me off with a big bag of Christmas goodies to take home to my David. And maybe we'll forget any of this ever happened. Extremely confident about this plan, thinking she has the upper hand for some reason. She laughs at the end of it.
58 002CB459 002CB4DA You're gonna let me walk right out of this cell. Extremely confident about this plan, thinking she has the upper hand for some reason.
59 002CB45A 002CB4ED David's gonna come for me, and when he gets here, he's gonna be mad. He'll kill every last one of you if he has to, so here's how it's gonna be. Angry, half delirious from the pain, but still defiant and coherent.
60 002CB45B 002CB4AB Oh that's rich, you think this is a joke? You killed a whole mess of people out there, and now you're gonna answer for it. Tired, angry, and out of patience.
61 002CB45C 002CB4D3 <Rosalynn laughing> Rosalyn just got smacked hard. Spit out some blood. Then, just get some really good maniacal laughing here, like you've got nothing to lose.
62 002CB45D 002CB4A9 If that's how we've gotta do this, then that's how we do it. Now, cut the crap or he'll hit ya again. Tired, angry, and out of patience.
63 002CB45E 002CB4E6 <Loud smack> Unghf! Wait a beat, then get a solid hit reaction to getting smacked hard across the face, but she's tough, so don't let it sound like it hurt too much.
64 002CB45F 002CB4CC Fuck you! That's 'F' as in Frank, 'u' as in... Really push the "Fuck you" drawing out the 'fuuuu.' She's badly injured, but surprisingly defiant. She gets cut off at the end with another beating.
65 002CB460 002CB49E Girl, you and yours've got some nerve! On Christmas Eve, no less! Now, I'll ask again, what is your name? Tired, angry, and out of patience.
66 002CB461 002CB4A2 Interrogation of one, Jane Doe, sole captive raider in custody after a deadly attack here, at approximately 10:30 PM tonight, December 24, 2082. Tired. It's late. Her people have just suffered a major attack. She's pissed, but this line is all by the book.
67 002CB462 002CB4A5 Ah well. Guess all we can do is keep on keepin' on, ya dig? Big sigh along with "ah well"
68 002CB463 002CB49F And honestly, it still beats hangin' with any of the other gangs. That deal we've got with the Palace is pretty sweet. All told, we got it good. Maybe it's not all so bad.
69 002CB464 002CB4AA Only reason we don't up and mutiny her ass is because she's got that piece of the key for the cache, and a few loyalists to protect her.
70 002CB465 002CB4AF Margie'd be pissed, but she ain't out there like the rest of us. So, to heck with her.
71 002CB466 002CB4A1 She don't know it yet, but a lot of us've been firin' first anyway, so's to save our skins.
72 002CB467 002CB4A4 I keep tellin' Margie we're losin' people out there because we're told not to fire first, and it ain't getting' any easier.
73 002CB468 002CB4A8 But you know, we got to eat, and so do they. Wavin' a gun around used to scare 'em, but now they got nothin' to lose, so they wave one right back.
74 002CB469 002CB4AD Some of these people are just tryin' to make it, like anyone else after the bombs. I don't want to kill 'em if they don't give up their stuff.
75 002CB46A 002CB4A0 I mean, yeah, I get it, but, damn girl! This is life and death out there! She's got to get this off her chest. Emphasize "life and death"
76 002CB46B 002CB4A6 You know, we're all tryin' our best here, but this whole idea of being a Raider without killing is way harder than it sounds. He's got to get this off his chest.
77 002CB46C 002CB4AE Meg here. I've gotta say something before it's too late. I think ol' Margie's off her rocker, man. Upset and a little confused. Definitely concerned.
78 002CB46D 002CB4DD All right, you little minx, now you really have to turn off the recorder. He's in a better mood now. Chuckles a little. Emphasize "really."
79 002CB46E 002CB4F0 Hey, you wanna hit the slopes, or do you maybe have something else in mind? A little wink-wink at the end.
80 002CB47B 002CB4D6 Aww, baby! You goin' all soft on me now? Haha! You know I love ya! <kiss> She's poking fun at him. She gives him a kiss at the end.
81 002CB47C 002CB4E9 You're my darling Rose. I just don't want anything bad to happen to you. Actually kind of heartfelt.
82 002CB47D 002CB4CF <Rosalynn popping pills> Rosalynn takes some pills.
83 002CB47E 002CB4E0 Okay, I get it, you're not a robot. I know you don't like it when I order you around like that. Acknowledges he was being kind of a jerk.
84 002CB47F 002CB4C7 Yes sir. Input received, sir. Awaiting orders. Very robotic. She's actually mimicking a robot. This will be important later.
85 002CB480 002CB4D9 Yeah, what do you want, Daytripper? Help yourself, just don't take too much. Don't, uh... get addicted. Happy to oblige, but doesn't want his girlfriend getting hurt.
86 002CB481 002CB4EC Hey, you got any more of those chems with you? Rosalynn excitedly asking for drugs.
87 002CB482 002CB4D2 Oh don't be an ol' stick in the mud. No one's gonna find out. Pinky swear! Rosalynn is being playful and carefree.
88 002CB483 002CB4E5 I have too much to lose in a divorce and leaving evidence like that laying around will only make it worse. Very serious, and concerned about his own well-being.
89 002CB484 002CB4CB Hmph. Fine. But it goes with you when we leave, and you need to promise to destroy it if word ever gets out about us. Very serious.
90 002CB485 002CB4DC Aw c'mon! I wanna make a recording of us! You said you were gonna ditch that old hag when we got back, anyway. Rosalynn is being playful.
91 002CB486 002CB4EF Hey, turn it off. Do you want my wife to find out about this? David is being stern here. Rosalynn just started recording the holotape.
92 002CB487 002CB4D5 Besides, kids are too scrawny. A little annoyed by this.
93 002CB488 002CB4E8 But Vanessa will know what's good for her, and she's too much of a good fighter to eat just yet. And the kid... well, I'm not a monster. He is a monster. Absolutely. He's hungry thinking about this, but rationalizing it as well as any psychopath.
94 002CB489 002CB4CE Well, maybe his wife. And his little girl, perhaps. Considering this, but really, unconcerned.
95 002CB48A 002CB4DF I've been thinking about Gregory. He's got a lot of meat on him, and he's been rather useless lately. No one will miss him. He's starting to get a little hungry at the thought of this.
96 002CB48B 002CB4C6 The others won't like it, but we're going to have to go to plan B. Edie's on board with me.
97 002CB48C 002CB4D8 I can only assume the damn Cutthroats have been scaring them all away, or not sharing their finds with us. Annoyed that his supposed allies seem to be turning their backs on him.
98 002CB48D 002CB4EB Honestly, it's been several days since we've come across any more food. The usual unsuspecting travelers have been harder to come by.
99 002CB48E 002CB4D1 I'm hungry because I'm the boss here! It takes a lot of effort to wrangle these useless idiots so we don't all starve, and that works up an appetite! Clearly annoyed by the lack of appreciation for all his work.
100 002CB48F 002CB4E4 "Morris, how can you be hungry when you're still so fat?" Well, you know what I say to that? He says the quote in a mocking tone.
101 002CB490 002CB4CA Edie and I have been feeling a little extra hungry as of late, and the others are starting to ask questions. A little annoyed by this.
102 002CB491 002CB4DB Aw shit! It's those green bastards and they've got guns! Yelling as his camp is beset upon by super mutants. Stepping away from the recorder.
103 002CB492 002CB4EE <Gunfire and shouting>
104 002CB493 002CB4D4 Fightin's still goin' on, and we'll keep an eye on the situation, but if things go belly up... He's starting to sound concerned, but not afraid. He gets interrupted at the end when Super Mutants start coming toward their camp
105 002CB494 002CB4E7 Soon as it looked like the armored goons were losin' the fight, we hauled ass back here, and that's where we're at.
106 002CB495 002CB4CD Next thing you know, them Brotherhood of Steel folks are marchin' on it and clashin' with the other guys, and they ain't doing to well against 'em. He's familiar with the BoS. They're tough, but he still believes his gang's tougher, and smarter than they are. So there's respect, but as rivals.
107 002CB496 002CB4DE First I heard. So I get him to show me, and I don't believe my eyes. These... big green fellers were in there, looked like, ransacking the town. He'd never seen or heard of Super Mutants before, so he was surprised. This was recent enough that he's still a little shocked by it.
108 002CB497 002CB4C5 Well he come back talking 'bout some big 'ol green 'uns stalkin' around. tryin' to rip up the fence 'round town, and bustin' up stuff real good. He's talking about Super Mutants.
109 002CB498 002CB4D7 We started hearin' some noises comin' from the town a bit back, so I done reckoned we'd better send someone to check it out.
110 002CB499 002CB4EA We thought it was just some sort of quarantine zone full of sick people, so we made sure not to poke at it.
111 002CB49A 002CB4D0 But uh... You know how we said stay out of Huntersville, and don't drink the water near there?
112 002CB49B 002CB4C9 Plenty of game to catch, plenty of unlucky saps wanderin' in from the East still.
113 002CB49C 002CB4E2 Me and the other Trappers set up this camp here near Devil's Backbone just like we all agreed on, and it's been workin' out for us.
114 002CB49D 002CB4E3 Thorpe, we got a bit of a situation here I want to report. Gonna send this here holotape with a runner to ya, soon as I can. Mildly concerned. Walter just found out some disturbing news he wants to relay to the primary Raider gang leader.
115 0031DEFF 0031DF01 Ever since the bombs dropped, the former guests at the ski resort have lost their minds.
116 If being a member of the Honorary Mock-Naval Yachting Society has taught me one thing, it's that preparation is the key to survival.
117 The idiots here have locked up their belongings and split up the access key, stashing away valuable items we could be using for barter.
118 Every decision being made is foolish!
119 Instead of using this facility as a headquarters and sending out hunting parties to look for scraps, we need to find a new base of operations.
120 We should band together in larger groups and take anything we find along the way.
121 They're convinced the government is going to rescue us, but the truth of the matter is that we're on our own.
122 The only people that can help us now are ourselves.
123 0031DF00 0031DDA5 It's been barely a week since the bombs fell, and supplies have become scarce.
124 The former guests at the resort are exploring the feasibility of sending out scavenging groups to hunt down whatever they can find.
125 What's starting to dawn on us is that there will be people outside the resort sending groups of their own.
126 Who knows if they'll be friendly, or simply take what they want?
127 Instead of waiting to find out, we've concluded that our goods should be locked up for safe keeping.
128 It's a smart move and one that will keep our belongings protected until the government rescue teams arrive.
129 It's good to know that there's still some rationality left amidst all this chaos.
130 0031E824 0031DE56 Maybe. Who's asking?
131 0031E825 0031DE58 You repping the Cutthroats? "repping" slang for representing - gang talk
132 0031E826 0031DDA6 Fine.
133 0031E827 0031DEE6 Put the gun down, we're here to talk.
134 0031E828 0031D2B1 I'd like to thank the Monongah Township Council for letting me attend your meeting today.
135 For those of you that don't know me, I'm Daniel Hornwright, CEO of Hornwright Industrial.
136 I'm here with an offer...
137 No, strike that. I'm here with a proposal so beneficial and so incredibly lucrative, that simply calling it an "offer" doesn't begin to do it justice.
138 I want to purchase the mining rights to Monongah Mine from your town. Not only for a generous sum of cash up front, but for perpetual...
139 ...that means forever... royalties for every single ton of coal that we extract. Like you're adding it since people may not know what "perpetual means", condescending to slower people
140 What do you have to provide in return? Nothing. How much money does the town have to outlay initially? Not a penny.
141 All I need is for you to sign on this dotted line, and sit back while the money rolls in.
142 No risk, all reward. And most important, no chance that anyone from this town ever gets hurt in that mine again. I humbly await your reply.
143 0031E8B4 0031DDA8 The hell with that! We're dying out here. All of Appalachia's trying to kill us, and it's got nothing to do with turf or loot.
144 0031E8B5 0031DEE4 Yeah, by other gangs. That's how things work.
145 0031E8B6 0031DE5A It's about survival. Our gangs are getting picked off one-by-one.
146 0031E8B7 0031DE57 Frank. So what's this all about?
147 0031E8B8 0031DEE5 Name's Repo. I'm repping the Diehards.
148 0031E93F 0031DF02 What's in it for us?
149 0031E940 0031DDA4 My point is we need to band together. Watch each other's back. If we don't, we might just end up disappearing.
150 0031E941 0031C637 Yeah, it's a rough world, I get it. So what's your point? condescending too
151 0031E942 0031D2AF Not just the Gourmands, but the Blackwater Bandits, the Trappers - hell, all of us.
152 0031E943 0031D2B3 You talking about the Gourmands? Those idiots ate each other to death.
153 0031E98F 0031DF03 <Single gunshot rings out>
154 0031E990 0031D2B0 Yeah it will. It'll get you to shut the hell up. Cold - you're about to murder the other person.
155 0031E991 0031D2B2 This is what I'm talking about. Pointing that gun at me again isn't going to solve anything.
156 0031E992 0031DEE7 Don't ever say that again. Very cold, dead serious
157 0031E993 0031DDA7 Staying alive? Do you understand what I'm saying or you too stupid?
158 0031EA56 0031DEE8 <Gunfire, multiple shots from different guns>
159 0031EA57 0031DE59 What the hell?! He killed Repo! Shoot him... shoot him! Surprise to Anger
160 0035F395 0035F3A5 Welcome Dr. Harrison. The Vox Interpreter Program is now running. Stand by for today's data assignments. Valid Vox interpretation banks loaded.
161 Ensure you maintain the minimum transmission distance from the dart while you collect the requisite amount of Vox data per sample. Happy hunting!
162 0037D220 0037D247 Oh you know me, I'm just upset is all. It might just be pissin' into the wind, but I'm still going to talk with him. I'll be civil. Promise. Calm now, but stern.
163 0037D224 0037D23F Now Harland, dear, don't do anything stupid... Margie is concerned for Harland's safety.
164 0037D225 0037D23B I'll tell you. I'm inclined to go over there and give him a piece of my mind. Harland is working off some frustration. He's mad, but calming down.
165 0037D226 0037D24F Not everyone is willing to follow a foolish madman. Trust me, Harland. Reason will win out in the end. Margie is trying to remain level-headed about this.
166 0037D227 0037D24C And if he chooses not to participate in this trial, what then? You're aware more and more people are starting to side with him, right? Harland is concerned this plan won't work.
167 0037D228 0037D246 Like some sort of savages? I know, don't worry. We'll deal with it. I'll hold a trial with the aim to exile him for his crimes. She interrupts Harland. She's made what she thinks is a very reasonable decision.
168 0037D229 0037D251 I'm sorry, dear. You're right. I just... I don't know what to do anymore. I don't want to live like this, like some sort of... He takes a deep breath, then apologizes. Margie cuts him off.
169 0037D22A 0037D243 Lower your voice, Harland. You don't need to yell at me. Trying to remain calm, and calm down Harland.
170 0037D22B 0037D249 The man's defied you at every turn. He does what he wants. The people chose you to lead them, not that blowhard! Angry. Voice raised.
171 0037D22C 0037D241 You saw what he did, Margie! He killed those innocent people who came to help us. He killed them in cold blood! And for what? A few measly supplies? Angry. Voice raised.
172 0037D22D 0037D24B I know, Harland, I know. But what are we going to do? David's... not a very reasonable man. Trying to calm Harland. Harland's previous line (Not recorded): We have to do something about him! He's a mad man!
173 0037D22E 0037D23D <Quiet movement> Rosalynn is positioning the recorder to pick up the audio
174 0037D22F 0037D245 They're talkin' crap about you again, David. This time I'm gonna record them so you can hear it yourself. Said in a hushed voice, so as not to be caught. Rosalynn has come across Harland and Margie talking about David. She is secretly recording them.
175 0037D230 0037D250 <distant muffled shouting and commotion> The Raiders are returning.
176 0037D231 0037D242 I wish the bombs never took you from me, Lucie. I love you. Always will. Said as she's trying to get things back in order before the other Raiders find her. She's quieter here, and moving away from the mic at the end
177 0037D232 0037D24D Sounds like the boys are getting back. I'd better go. Put that mean face back on. Stops for a moment to listen, then turns back to the recorder. She takes a deep breath and changes to a tougher demeanor.
178 0037D233 0037D23E Gotta be strong to survive, and if that means playing mean and leading a bunch of other monsters to prey on the weak, then that's what I gotta do.
179 0037D234 0037D248 Am I still the same Alfreda you knew? Would you even still like me? I'd hope you would understand. Still sad.
180 0037D235 0037D252 I've had to steal, and kill, and worse still, I've had to hide who I am behind this facade. I'm alive...I guess? But who am I now? Disappointed in who she's become.
181 0037D236 0037D244 Maybe it's for the best. These... people I'm with probably wouldn't understand us either. I've had to get even tougher than before. Some uncertainty.
182 0037D237 0037D24E I wish I had told you, though. We're both hard-headed, but one of our stubborn asses would have caved and then we'd be together, one way or another. A little levity when talking about their stubbornness, maybe even a chuckle, but still sadness.
183 0037D238 0037D240 They were firing up the snowmakers, and I knew you didn't like skiing, so I didn't even mention I was going. I thought you'd talk me out of it. Sad about the loss of her girlfriend.
184 0037D239 0037D23C I just... miss you, Lucie, more than you could ever imagine. And, I can't help but feel responsible somehow. Sadness in her voice. She's talking about her former lover, who died.
185 0037D23A 0037D24A So I, uh, found this old holotape to record onto... Look, I know this is stupid. You can't hear me, not anymore. I dunno. Maybe this is more for me. Finishes sniffling as the tape begins as if she had just stopped crying. Big pause at '...' She toughens up, but there is still sadness in her voice.
186 0037D527 0037D529 It's been a helluva week, I tell ya. We lost more good people fightin' off those damn scorched things again. Tired, feeling defeated
187 Now I got Chavez tellin' me we're pickin' up a new radio signal. Someone askin' for help. A little disappointed. She just got another problem dumped on her, and it sucks because she does want to help people.
188 She wants me to take my team and follow it 'til we find 'em. Can't be too far. Already tracked it gainin' strength South a' here. She knows this is an easily solved problem, but there are complications.
189 Problem is, we'd have to go straight on through Raider country to find 'em and I don't have the time or men to spare right now. More disappointment. This is annoying to her. She knows a problem exists and how to deal with it, but she just doesn't have the resources.
190 So, I hate to say it, but I gotta tell her it ain't gonna happen. Not now. Very pragmatic here. She doesn't like it, but she's got to do it.
191 My team's the last line of defense, and if I take 'em on some wild goose chase, we're leavin' ourselves open for another Christmas Flood situation. Laying out the facts. She's putting her foot down and trying to keep people safe.
192 And, you can bet your ass I ain't gonna let that happen again, even if it means someone out there might need us. Man alive, times 've changed. A little angry, remembering the Christmas Flood, caused by the Raiders. Staying vigilant.

198 0037E117 0037E124 <Sound of something large pounding on the metal walls of the truck's trailer and ripping the door off the back> A Grafton Monster escapes the back of the truck and runs off.
199 0037E118 0037E122 <Nuclear blast shockwave hitting> The shockwave hits moments later.
200 0037E119 0037E120 <Sound of a truck running off the road, metal screeching, and glass breaking> The cab of the truck crashes through the guard rail and comes to a stop. The trailer jacknifes and stops on the road behind it.
201 0037E11A 0037E123 Aw shit, it exploded. I was starin' right at it, and I... I can't see! I... I'm going to... The driver is blinded by the nuclear flash and swerves off the road, crashing the truck. He's kind of freaking out right now.
202 0037E11B 0037E126 <Faint nuclear explosion in the distance> The bombs fell some distance away.
203 0037E11C 0037E125 It's like a rocket streakin' through the blue sky, or like a... oh... oh shit. It's a nuclear... He's staring at it when he suddenly realizes they're nukes and they're under attack.
204 0037E11D 0037E128 Boy howdy, it's majestic. Like shootin' stars in the early mornin' light, only I ain't never seen 'em in the mornin' like this. Still in awe.
205 0037E11E 0037E121 I'm sittin' here drivin' this truck, and what do I see ahead, but a sky full of... well there's these streaks of light like nothin' I ever seen. In awe of the spectacle, unsure of what it is yet.
206 0037E11F 0037E127 Damn it, is this thing... Okay. Okay, it's recording. Ol' JB here. And you would not believe what I'm seein' right now! He has trouble getting his holotape recorder working, so he can record his reaction to seeing majestic streaks of light in the sky.
207 004E4B2C 004E4B3C I'll see you soon, Harland, my love. It's been too long. Resolved. Almost content.
208 004E4B2D 004E4B3B As for me, I'm leaving. I'll... find some chems, and I'll go out that way, peaceful, without pain... I'm done. More solemn now. She realizes there is only one way for her to escape, and it's bittersweet, but it will give her relief.
209 004E4B2E 004E4B38 If that ever happens, Vincent knows what to do. Maybe he'll be more successful than I was Calmed down. She's leaving her assistant in with the responsibility to do better than she did.
210 004E4B2F 004E4B34 Those bastards don't deserve their treasures unless they return to their senses and quit this whole murderous power game they're playing. Finishing the smashing action. Calming down. Breath of relief. Still upset, but she feels like she wields some power and moral superiority now.
211 004E4B30 004E4B3A The whole idea of the Raiders is sick. It's inhuman. I'm destroying that stupid key fragment. Pulled it together. Now determined, angry. Grabbing a heavy blunt object & preparing to smash a tape. Make it sound like it. Leads directly into sfx
212 004E4B31 004E4B37 So we have to kill, we have to murder innocent people... Well, not me. I don't care what this world has come to, it's not taking me down with it. Angry, to the point of tears, but trying to hold it together.
213 004E4B32 004E4B36 But now, everyone out there is as desperate as we are. When every confrontation could mean life or death, people take their chances. They fight back. Sad and exasperated. She tried so hard, but failed.
214 004E4B33 004E4B35 This is Margie McClintock of the Diehards. Heh, what a joke. We deluded ourselves into thinking our victims would fear a name like that. Depressed. She's just realized she can't live in a world that forces her to murder and steal just to survive.
215 0051AD29 0051AD2D <Sound of Margie smashing a holotape> Let's get some good grunts of effort. She's smashing a small plastic tape with a heavy blunt object, like a hammer, until it's utterly destroyed.
