10-000D12ED{Filling in an awkward pause in the conversation.} I know, it's a lot to take in.
1100061C1A{Exasperated, tired} Like any machine, a synth can malfunction. I just wish it didn't happen so often.
12{A little condescending, but well-intentioned} I know it'll be a difficult adjustment for you, but try to remember that synths aren't people.
13{Frustrated} The Directorate should take the synth escapes more seriously.
14DialogueInstituteAlanaFirstGreetingScene000D137ANPCFAlanaSecord: I swear I spend half my time smoothing the feathers that Justin ruffles.We need to be able to collaborate with the other divisions, and that's a lot harder when they're always angry at us.Player Default: If you can't get along, it's going to be hard to accomplish anything.A1a
15000D1379Player Default: If you can't get along, it's going to be hard to accomplish anything.Even worse, we've got a lot of smart guys with fragile egos.A1a
16Anyway, we'll figure it out. It was good to meet you.AlanaSecord: Just listen to me. It's the first chance we've had to get acquainted, and all I want to do is complain.A1b
17000D1378Player Default: Sometimes, feathers need to be ruffled to get things done.I won't deny that. I guess I just feel like he comes on a little strong sometimes, you know?B1a

3600169122InstituteScientist: The Coursers will destroy them, shouldn't we try to reclaim them in an operational state?{Neutral} Then we'll strip them for parts once they get back here.A1a
