200061C14Player Default: Yes, of course.{Excited, upbeat} Ah, good. Shaun is most pleased, I'm sure. He's been quite anxious to have you with us.AlanBinet: If you require anything, especially as it pertains to synths, please let me know.A1a
300061C13Player Default: Not a chance.{Surprised, uncertain, not what you expected} No? I... hmm. Well, I'm sure Shaun is... quite disappointed.B1a
4{Disappointed, emphasis on "do"} I do hope you reconsider.AlanBinet: If you require anything, especially as it pertains to synths, please let me know.B1b
500061C12Player Default: I'm thinking it over.{Hopeful, serious} Well I hope you do decide to stay. It would mean a great deal to Shaun.AlanBinet: If you require anything, especially as it pertains to synths, please let me know.X1a
600061C19NPCMAlanBinet: Ah, it's you. You're finally with us.{Genuinely apologetic, abashed} I'd just like to apologize for any... trouble... our synths may have caused for you on your way here.A1a
7{Sincerely contrite} They of course couldn't be told of your identity, and they have very specific protocols for protecting themselves and Institute interests...A1b
8{Sincerely contrite, a bit embarrassed} Most of which I designed myself. Not to make problems for you, though. I, err, will you be staying with us, then?Player Default: Yes, of course.A1c
900061C11Player Default: What's it to you?{Awkward apology, but well-intentioned} Oh, forgive me, I realize... well, I understand that's somewhat personal. It would just mean a great deal to Shaun.AlanBinet: If you require anything, especially as it pertains to synths, please let me know.Y1a

1200061C1A{Polite, friendly} The synths are treating you well, I hope?
13{Proud} I don't know if you've noticed, but I've increased synth responsiveness by .04 percent.

15{Optimistic, eager} Today is full of possibilities.
16{Grateful, proud} We're quite fortunate to have the synths to aid us.

17DialogueInstituteBinetHomeScene1001690DFLiam: In other words, it's definitely something to worry about and you can't talk about it. How bad is it?{Start with a laugh. Amused, reassuring. / Amused} You're too smart Liam, but I assure you, it has nothing to do with anything that would concern you.Liam: I think that's even more concerning.A1a
18001690E3{Friendly conversation / Friendly} What did you do with your day, Liam?Liam: You know, kept busy.A1a
19001690E1Liam: Hey, what's with the sudden security increase? I noticed a few more Coursers than usual walking around. Is everything okay?{Dismissive / Nervous} Oh it's nothing to worry about.Liam: In other words, it's definitely something to worry about and you can't talk about it. How bad is it?A1a
20DialogueInstituteBinetHomeScene4001AC7DEEve: Welcome home, Alan. How was your day?{Amused} Oh, you know... prying open closed minds one at a time...Eve: Well, you're home now, and you should relax. I got a little sidetracked helping Liam with his work, but things are under control.A1a
21001AC7DAEve: Alan, why don't you relax a little. I'll take care of everything.{relaxed / Grateful} Wonderful, Eve. I swear, I don't know what I'd do without you...A1a

22DialogueInstituteAlanMax1Scene000C7D80Max: It was probably just a glitch in the nervous system. The fine motor control software could use an update.{Excitement, a new discovery} If it were just a limb twitching, perhaps, but her eyes were moving as well.A1a
23{Excitement, a new discovery} Involuntary twitching and rapid eye movements while sleeping can only mean one thing, Max.A1b
24{Excitement, a new discovery, then accusing} You just don't want to admit to yourself what it is.Max: If you're about to launch into one of your impassioned speeches about artificial sentience and machines with souls, don't bother.A1c
25000C7D7EMax: I've heard enough of them by now. Hell, I could write them down from memory.{Defiant, challenging} But we can't just ignore the question. If a synth can dream, why can't it have a soul?A1a
26{Defiant, challenging} And if a synth has a soul, then it is a living person by every standard we can measure.A1b
27{Bitter, chastising} Of course, it's far more comfortable to think of them as machines, so we can do what we want with them.Max: If you disapprove of the work we do here, Doctor Binet, you know where to find the teleporter.A1c
28000C7D7CMax: If you disapprove of the work we do here, Doctor Binet, you know where to find the teleporter.{Defensive.} Now just a moment, I never said that.A1a
29{Defensive} I'm simply trying to open everyone's eyes to new possibilities.Max: Well it's an unwanted distraction.A1b
30DialogueInstituteRobotics2Scene000D12C9Max: I'm swamped right now. Can you accomodate them?{Resignation. You are taking on extra work.} I'll see what I can do.Max: Thanks.A1a
31Max: I'm swamped right now. Can you accomodate them?{Resignation. You are taking on extra work.} No promises, but I'll try to fit it in where I can.Max: Thanks.A2a
32Max: I'm swamped right now. Can you accomodate them?{Resignation. You are taking on extra work.} It'll take a few days, but I should be able to get it done.Max: Thanks.A3a
33DialogueInstituteRobotics3Scene000D12C7{More annoyance than concern. Gen 2s is "gen (as in generation) twos"} Sounds like some of the gen 2s are acting up.A1a
34Something about a twitch in the right hand that's affecting their manual dexterity.Max: Yes, I've seen the same thing myself a time or two.A1b
35SRB says one of their Coursers is suddenly speaking Mandarin instead of English.Max: Yes, I've seen the same thing myself a time or two.A2a
36You see that report from Facilities?A3a
37{Gen 1s is "gen (as in generation) ones"} A couple of their gen 1s were trying to walk into walls. Sounds like a pathfinding bug to me.Max: Yes, I've seen the same thing myself a time or two.A3b
38000D12C5Max: I made a note to look into it when there's time.Sounds like you're on top of things, then.A1a
39Max: I made a note to look into it when there's time.Very well, I'll leave it in your capable hands.A2a
40Max: I made a note to look into it when there's time.Good enough for me.A3a
41DialogueInstituteRobotics4Scene000DB2B0Max: How's that personal synth of yours working out? I've heard that Liam's grown quite attached to it.{Mildly annoyed, chastising} Not "it", Doctor Loken, "she." And she has a name.A1a
42{Proud} To answer your question, Eve has been an indispensable companion, both to Liam and myself.Max: Alan, I know it's been difficult for you since you lost your wife, but don't lose perspective.A1b
43000DB2AEMax: A synth might look like a man or a woman, but it isn't. It's not healthy to become too attached.{Defensive, lecturing} Need I remind you, Doctor Loken, that in biochemical terms a human being is also a machine.Max: Don't hide behind technicalities, Alan. I'm your friend. I'm not judging you, but others will.A1a
44000DB2ACMax: Such behavior could be construed as deviant. You know where that will lead.{Defensive} There's no need to get worked up over it, Max. I'm simply carrying out an experiment.A1a
45I believe that our third-generation synths are sophisticated enough to form social bonds, even familial bonds.A1b
46Only through close observation can I prove my hypothesis.Max: Alright, Alan. I'll trust your judgement on this. Just be careful.A1c
47DialogueInstituteRoboticsScene6001690FEInstituteScientist: SRB doesn't agree. Statistically, the gen-threes have shown an increase in autonomic behavior, suggesting a malfunction in the latest models.{Proud, passionate / Confident} I assure you Doctor, that is not a malfunction.A1a
48001690FCInstituteScientist: In light of recent events, we've been asked to take a look at the behavioral mapping in the gen-3s.{Defiant / Defiant} I see...Another of Doctor Ayo's manipulative power plays. Well he's wrong. The Gen-threes are functioning just as designed.Alan: I assure you Doctor, that is not a malfunction.A1a
49InstituteScientist: In light of recent events, we've been asked to take a look at the behavioral mapping in the gen-3s.{Disappointed, defiant / Defiant} I thought things would be better with Alana in charge. Now I see she's just as blind.A2a
50{Annoyed} Regardless of what she might believe, she's wrong. The gen-threes are functioning perfectly.Alan: I assure you Doctor, that is not a malfunction.A2b
51DialogueInstituteRoboticsScene7001690E7{Passionate / Defiant} Think about it, doctor. You and everyone else firmly hold onto the archaic opinion that the synths are inferior. By limiting them, we limit our work.InstituteScientist: I am well aware of your ideas, doctor, and there is a reason they are not the popular ones.A1a
52001690E5InstituteScientist: There needs to be a distinction between us and them.{Pleading his case / Pleading} No, they are an evolution of us. The synths possess vast untapped potential, if we'd only let them show it...InstituteScientist: I suggest you keep your radical opinions to yourself from now on.A1a

61InstM02Scene2AlanInvestigate000A8299{Friendly} Our synths are truly remarkable. Every day they manage to surprise me. Now, what can I do for you?Player Default: Justin Ayo thinks you're helping synths escape. I need to know the truth.A
62000A8273Player Default: Justin Ayo thinks you're helping synths escape. I need to know the truth.{Irritated} I see. The man does not lack for tenacity.A1a
63{Confident} He is however, completely wrong about me.Alan: Ayo and his Courser goons have already scoured my laboratory for evidence. Feel free to do the same, if you think you must.A1b
64000A8272Player Default: You're helping synths escape, and I'm going to prove it.{Indignant / Surprised} What?! I'm not doing anything of the sort!B1a
65{Angry / Suspicious} Let me guess... Justin Ayo put you up to this, didn't he?Alan: Ayo and his Courser goons have already scoured my laboratory for evidence. Feel free to do the same, if you think you must.B1b
66000A8271Player Default: I can't discuss it. Just go back to what you were doing.{Rising anger / Suspicious} Wait a minute... did Justin Ayo send you here to look through these terminals?X1a
67{Anger / Suspicious} Yes... I suspect he did.Alan: Ayo and his Courser goons have already scoured my laboratory for evidence. Feel free to do the same, if you think you must.X1b
68000A8270Player Default: Are you helping synths escape from the Institute, Doctor Binet?{Irritated} Not this nonsense again.Y1a
69{Irritated} I suppose this means that Justin Ayo has given up trying to wring a confession from me himself.Y1b
70{Irritated} Now he's using you to do his dirty work instead.Alan: Ayo and his Courser goons have already scoured my laboratory for evidence. Feel free to do the same, if you think you must.Y1c
71000A8262Player Default: He is however, completely wrong about me.{Annoyed, indignant / Irritated} Ayo and his Courser goons have already scoured my laboratory for evidence. Feel free to do the same, if you think you must.A1a
72{Irritated} If there's something specific you want to ask me, then get on with it.Player Default: Why would Ayo think you were helping synths?A1b
73000A8260Player Default: Why would Ayo think you were helping synths?He probably thinks my admiration for the synths might have caused me to have some delusion about setting them free.A1a
74The notion is preposterous. The last thing I'd want to do is banish a synth to the surface. It's a living hell up there.A1b
75That's not freedom, it's a death sentence. I would never be so cruel.Player Default: Why would Ayo think you were helping synths?A1c
76000A825FPlayer Default: We're done.Very well.B1a
77000A825EPlayer Default: Does anyone else have access to your terminals?Unlikely. I don't let anyone else lay a finger on my terminals without my close supervision.X1a
78I'll make an exception in your case, however. If Father trusts you, then I have no reason not to.Player Default: Why would Ayo think you were helping synths?X1b
79000A825DPlayer Default: How many synths have escaped?I'm not sure of the exact number, but I can tell you the rate of escapes has accelerated greatly in recent months.Player Default: Why would Ayo think you were helping synths?Y1a
80InstM02Scene3AlanLogin000B17A0Player Default: There's a remote access entry in the log. It came from your quarters.{Thinking} Let me guess, terminal three?A1a
81It has been acting a bit strange of late. Probably needs maintenance. I wouldn't pay any attention to it.Alan: Carry on with your investigation, if you wish. You'll find nothing to incriminate me, I promise you that.A1b
82000B179FPlayer Default: Just trying to cover all the bases.{Icy, annoyed / Irritated} How thorough of you.Alan: Carry on with your investigation, if you wish. You'll find nothing to incriminate me, I promise you that.B1a
83000B179EPlayer Default: Possibly.{Mistrusting / Suspicious} You're a cagey one, aren't you?X1a
84{Disapproving / Suspicious} I can see why Justin chose to send you in his stead. You're very alike in that way.Alan: Carry on with your investigation, if you wish. You'll find nothing to incriminate me, I promise you that.X1b
85000B179DPlayer Default: Is there someone who would want to?The only people who have any interest in the synth lab already have access to those computers.Y1a
86If they wanted to log in remotely, they could do so from their own quarters.Alan: Carry on with your investigation, if you wish. You'll find nothing to incriminate me, I promise you that.Y1b
87000B179CPlayer Default: It has been acting a bit strange of late. Probably needs maintenance. I wouldn't pay any attention to it.{Mildly annoyed, haughty / Confident} Carry on with your investigation, if you wish. You'll find nothing to incriminate me, I promise you that.Player Default: I believe you, but I still need answers.A1a
88000B179BPlayerVoiceFemale01: Do you ever log in from your quarters?{Surprised} Goodness no. When I retire for the day, I put any thought of work out of my mind.A1a
89{Confident} I find that keeping a balance between my work and my leisure time is vital for healthy living.A1b
90{Question} Do you suspect that someone has logged into one of the laboratory terminals from my quarters?Player Default: There's a remote access entry in the log. It came from your quarters.A1c
91000B179APlayer Default: I believe you, but I still need answers.{Annoyed / Neutral} Then do what you must, but leave me out of it.Alan: I think that's quite enough for now. Goodbye.A1a
92000B1799Player Default: I'd better not.{Defiant, even cocky / Defiant} If you think I can be intimidated by the likes of you, I'm afraid you are quite mistaken.Alan: I think that's quite enough for now. Goodbye.B1a
93000B1798Player Default: We'll see.{Icy / Defiant} Indeed we will.Alan: I think that's quite enough for now. Goodbye.X1a
94000B1797Player Default: What if it's a frame job? Who would benefit if you looked guilty?{Annoyed, confused / Defiant} A frame job? What is that, some pre-war vernacular for blaming the innocent?Y1a
95{Confident} I assure you, that sort of thing does not happen here.Alan: I think that's quite enough for now. Goodbye.Y1b
96000B1792Player Default: Then do what you must, but leave me out of it.I think that's quite enough for now. Goodbye.A1a
97-000B1F87You'd think Justin Ayo would have better ways to spend his time than to make ridiculous accusations.
98All I want is to be able to work in peace! Is that so much to ask?
99Why would anyone think I'd be so cruel as to set a synth free on the surface? It's preposterous!
100I do miss Doctor Zimmer. If he were here, none of this nonsense would be happening.
10100112886{Talking quietly to yourself. Indignant, annoyed.} This is unacceptable. Absolutely unacceptable.
102{Talking quietly to yourself. Indignant, annoyed.} Can't believe he would accuse me...
103{Talking quietly to yourself. Indignant, annoyed.} He's gone too far this time.
104{Talking quietly to yourself. Indignant, annoyed.} The nerve of that man!

105-001939FD{Anger, disgust / Angry} All that time, Doctor Ayo was blaming me just to keep everyone's eyes off of him. The man was utterly without scruples.
106{Relief / Relieved} I certainly don't miss Doctor Ayo and his Coursers looking over my shoulder all day.
107{Relief / Relieved} Now that Doctor Ayo's plot has been exposed, things are back to normal.
108{Depressed, broken, your have lost your son} I'm the one who filled Liam's head with silly, idealistic notions about synths. Now I'll never see him again.
109{Depressed, broken, your have lost your son} I hoped one day that Liam would work alongside me. No all I can do is hope that he's still alive up there.
110{Depressed, broken, your have lost your son} I have failed completely as a father. There's no other way to put it.
111{Depressed, broken, your have lost your son} If only I'd paid more attention to Liam, to what he was doing... Maybe I could saved him.
112{Depressed, broken, your have lost your son} I've been avoiding my quarters. I can't bear to be there wihtout Liam. Too many memories...
113{Depressed, broken, your have lost your son} How does one cope with the loss of a child? Where do you even start?

115{Impressed / Impressed} Father said that you were a soldier. You must have been a good one.Player Default: I won my share of medals.A1b
116000F7949Player Default: I won my share of medals.{Impressed, friendly / Friendly} I don't doubt it. Not even a bit.QuestGiver: Thanks to you, I can finally send that scavenger team back to the surface.A1a
117000F7948Player Default: Nothing special. Just a regular grunt.{Impressed, friendly / Friendly} I'm in no position to argue, but you've certainly made an impression on me.QuestGiver: Thanks to you, I can finally send that scavenger team back to the surface.B1a
118000F7947Player Default: I wish my old C.O. were around to hear this.{Amused, making a small joke / Amused} Who knows, perhaps he became a ghoul and is out there somewhere even now.QuestGiver: Thanks to you, I can finally send that scavenger team back to the surface.X1a
119000F7946Player Default: I did you a favor, so how about you do one for me?{A bit flustered, you were not expecting this} Well, that seems only fair, I suppose.Y1a
120One of the salvage teams brought this back, and I've been trying to figure out what to do with it.Y1b

122Player Default: I did you a favor, so how about you do one for me?{A bit flustered} A favor? I'm sorry, but I don't have anything to offer you.Y2a
123{Disappointed, a bit cold / Concerned} I was led to believe you were here to help us, but perhaps I misunderstood.QuestGiver: Thanks to you, I can finally send that scavenger team back to the surface.Y2b

130000F7954NPCMAlanBinet: Ah, director, hello. If I may take a moment of your time, we're having some trouble on the surface.{A mix of worried and annoyed - DO NOT RE-RECORD (just fixed capitalization) / Disgust} There's a den of those abominable Feral Ghouls that's been threatening one of our scavenger teams.A1a
131{Asking a favor, hopeful / Concerned} We've had to recall the synth scavengers until the situation can be dealt with, hopefully by you.Player Default: I took care of them already.A1b
132000F7953Player Default: I took care of them already.{Sincere gratitude / Grateful} I'm very grateful for your help.QuestGiver: I have no firsthand experience with these creatures, of course, but I've heard that they can be quite vicious.A1a
133000F7952Player Default: Send someone else. One of your Coursers, maybe.{Irritated and disappointed} That's against SRB policy, unfortunately. I'm afraid you're the only option.Player Default: I took care of them already.B1a
134000F7951Player Default: I don't know. I've got a lot on my plate right now.I wouldn't ask if it wasn't important. Please, there's no one else I can turn to.Player Default: I took care of them already.X1a
135000F7950Player Default: Do you know where these Feral Ghouls are coming from?{Hopeful.} We have a pretty good idea, yes. So you'll take the mission?Player Default: I took care of them already.Y1a
136000F794BPlayer Default: I'm very grateful for your help.{Concerned... a warning} I have no firsthand experience with these creatures, of course, but I've heard that they can be quite vicious.A1a
137They are also quite territorial, so you should prepare for a fight.A1b
138{Friendly} Good luck.A1c
139InstR01SceneRepeat000F7956{Frustrated / Irritated} Another of our scavenger teams has come under attack by Feral Ghouls. There seems to be no end to the damn things.QuestGiver: I hate to keep asking this, but there really is nobody else to turn to.A
140{Question} Have you changed your mind about that Feral Ghoul problem I mentioned?Player Default: I took care of them already.A
141000F7940NPCMAlanBinet: Another of our scavenger teams has come under attack by Feral Ghouls. There seems to be no end to the damn things.{Feeling a bit guilty about asking for another favor / Pleading} I hate to keep asking this, but there really is nobody else to turn to.A1a

143000F793FPlayer Default: I took care of them already.{Friendly, a joke / Grateful} I thank you, and so will the synths. Being torn to bits by feral ghouls is a fate they'd very much like to avoid.QuestGiver: Just let me know when those feral ghouls have been dealt with, and I'll put the synths back in the field.A1a
144000F793EPlayer Default: No, I haven't.{Sad} I see.QuestGiver: What do you say?B1a
145Player Default: No, I haven't.Well, I won't trouble you further about it, then.QuestGiver: What do you say?B2a
146000F793CPlayer Default: What was it you needed, exactly?It's quite simple, really. Find where the feral ghouls are making their home, and then wipe them out.QuestGiver: What do you say?Y1a
147000F7937Player Default: I thank you, and so will the synths. Being torn to bits by feral ghouls is a fate they'd very much like to avoid.Just let me know when those feral ghouls have been dealt with, and I'll put the synths back in the field.A1a
148000F7934Player Default: I see.What do you say?Player Default: I took care of them already.A1a
149-000F7955{Enthused about this idea} Someday, we should capture a feral ghoul and bring it here for study.
150{Genuine curiosity / Question} I've often wondered why some ghouls become feral, while others retain their intelligence.
151{Worried, a bit hopeless... this is a morbid subject / Concerned} We've lost synths to feral ghouls in the past. When we found them, well, there wasn't much left.
