  1. Ronnie Shaw: "That's just sad. General Becker used to run the Minutemen. The last real leader we ever had."
    (Ronnie Shaw's dialogue)
  2. Ronnie Shaw: "That explains all the landmines. This is, well... was, General McGann. He had your job back when I first joined up. Must have gotten trapped down here when that sea beast attacked the Castle. He did manage to keep the armory secure. I'll give him that much. Rest in peace, general. Your fight is done and the Minutemen live on. No point in getting all sentimental about something that happened 40 years ago."
    (Ronnie Shaw's dialogue)
  3. Preston Garvey: "The leader of the Minutemen has always held the rank of General. Our last leader was General Becker. After he died back in '82, nobody could agree on who should take his place. The one good thing about being the last Minuteman is there's no one to argue with me when I say you're the new General."
    (Preston Garvey's dialogue)
  4. The Sole Survivor: "What was the Quincy Massacre?"
    Preston Garvey: "I thought everyone in the Commonwealth knew about that by now. Where the Minutemen betrayed each other, and the people they were supposed to protect. I was with Colonel Hollis's group. A mercenary group called the Gunners was attacking Quincy; the people there called for the Minutemen to help. We were the only ones that came. The other groups... they just turned their backs. On us, and the folks in Quincy. Only a few of us got out alive. Colonel Hollis was dead. So I ended up in charge of the survivors. We never found a safe place to settle. One disaster after another... you saw how it ended, in Concord."

    Joe Savoldi: "Hey, he brought it up, not me. As I was saying. Before us Savoldis started slinging rotgut for thirsty caravan hands, we came from a line of Minutemen. My grandpa, Brent Savoldi, was the last. He died fighting raiders just outside Malden. If you could find any of his personal effects, well, it'd mean the world to me."

It's those two assh... those two idiots you saw me talking to at the Third Rail, Winlock and Barnes. They've been hounding me for months and it's been driving off clients. No one wants to touch me once they learn I used to run with the Gunners."
    (Robert MacCready's dialogue)
  32. The Sole Survivor: "You and your family live alone out here?"
    Brett Dunmore: "That's right. Don't get any ideas-- Monique and I were Gunners, back in the day. We can handle ourselves better than most."

  40. The Sole Survivor: "Pretty brave, a bunch of kids living alone like that."
    Robert MacCready: "I don't know. Looking back on the whole thing, I think we were just lucky. Anyway, when I hit sixteen, I ended up wandering the Capital Wasteland for a while. I took the odd job here and there, but things were pretty hot with the Brotherhood of Steel running the show. So I hitched a ride with a caravan and made my way north until I ended up here. Made a pretty decent name for myself before I heard that the Gunners needed some sharpshooters. Biggest mistake of my life. They were animals. Killed anything that moved if it got in their way. I went with it for a while, because the caps were good. But, I dunno, I guess it started to catch up with me... so I quit. Which pretty much brings us to now. So there you have it, my whole life in a nutshell."

  46. The Courier: "The president has departed safely."
    Cassandra Moore: "Good, his death could have had a major impact on morale. This whole affair was ill-advised from the start, and I for one am glad it's over. While you were out, General Oliver arrived and briefed all senior officers regarding a change in our strategy. I'm not at liberty to divulge what was said, but I've been instructed to send you to him immediately. He's set up his camp in the office area at the south end of this power plant. Dismissed."
    (Cassandra Moore's dialogue)
  47. Cut content The Courier: "How have things been since the battle?"
    Cassandra Moore: "Surprisingly good. Our forces have managed to secure the region with little resistance, and trade should soon reach an all-time high. The brass was particularly surprised by the lack of domestic threats in the area. They were prepared to spend months pacifying known troublemakers. When they found those threats absent, they turned to the man in charge of the area, but Hsu being Hsu, he denied having anything to do with it. So now the men have to answer to Brigadier General Moore, and both they and I have you to thank for it. We made a good team. I hope we can work together again in the future."
    (Cassandra Moore's dialogue)
  48. 48.0 48.1 Courier: "Who are you?"
    Carrie Boyd: "Not big on reading nametags, huh? That's okay, my name is long and difficult to pronounce. Ready for it? It's Boyd. Lieutenant Boyd to my friends. Colonel Hsu has me handling the policing duties for the base. I've told him he could make my job a whole lot easier if he would just let me shoot anyone who talks back to me, but you know how colonels can be."
    (Carrie Boyd's dialogue)
  49. Dhatri: "For my effort, I was promoted to major. Not quite the way I'd have wanted it."

  1. Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition p.75: "Gunnery Sergeant Benjamin Montgomery
    Sergeant Benjamin Montgomery has been a field soldier fighting on the Anchorage front line for several tours, and he is part of the backbone of General Chase's army. He is assigned as your active party member and soon becomes a confidante, fighting along-side you during many crucial stages in the liberation of Anchorage. Montgomery is an exceptionally adept soldier and is loyal and dexterous. He uses more informal nicknames only after becoming friendly."
    (Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition Wasteland Census) Note: Calling Benjamin a soldier is incorrect, as Marines neither use nor are called by that name.
