2{Defeated, down} The women of the Commonwealth ain't exactly lining up to be farmer's wives.Abigail: Then you need a farm girl. There's plenty out there, you know.A1b
300167888Abigail: That Abernathy girl is nice enough, even if her mother's a witch. And there's that girl at Warwick... What's her name? Joanie?{Annoyed, dismissive, leave me alone} Janey. And she's too young for me. And Lucy Abernathy's only got eyes for Hawthorne in Diamond City.Abigail: Well don't you worry, son. There's someone out there for you.A1a
400167886Abigail: Well don't you worry, son. There's someone out there for you.{Annoyed, dismissive} You're the one who's worried. I can't think past all the weeds I got to pull.A1a

10{Annoyed} The soles are coming off. Sometimes they flap so bad when I walk, it sounds like someone's clapping at me.Abigail: Well maybe they're just showin' their appreciation for all the hard work you do.A1b
110010D4B9Abigail: Well maybe they're just showin' their appreciation for all the hard work you do.{Unamused} That's very funny, but I'm being serious here.

120010D4B7Abigail: Well, I'll see what we've got. It ain't much, but it might be enough.{Relieved} That's all I need to hear.A1a

13DialogueFinchDanielAbrahamScene0016787FAbraham: You just need to dig around a little. It's there somewhere.{Annoyed} Yeah... I think it'd be faster to shovel dirt with my hands.A1a
1400167885{Matter of fact} We got an extra shovel anywhere in the scrap?Abraham: Pretty sure we do, yeah.A1a
1500167883Abraham: Pretty sure we do, yeah.Know where it is?Abraham: Not a clue.A1a

21DialogueFinchFarmDanielBranch0007876FPlayer Default: I miss the past. I'd go back in a second if I could.{Surprised, disbelief} Then you must not be from the Commonwealth.B1a
22{Relief... the past was bad, but things are better} We've got it pretty good now, at least compared to how it used to be.Player Default: I'm glad to hear that things are better for you.B1b
230007876DPlayer Default: What makes you say that?{Certain, confident you're right} Because things used to be so much worse.Player Default: I'm glad to hear that things are better for you.Y1a
240007875FDaniel: At least that's how my father tells it.{Friendly / Friendly} I'm sure you're bored to death by now. Still, it was good talking to you. I hope I'll see you again.A1a
250007080CPlayer Default: Your father's pretty fearless.{Sarcastic / Sarcastic} That's one way to put it.Daniel: He says he collects all the scrap because he likes to tinker, but I think it's more than that.A1a
260007080BPlayer Default: I think your father's got a death wish.{Concerned / Concerned} He knows that salvage yard pretty well, but yeah, it's dangerous.Daniel: He says he collects all the scrap because he likes to tinker, but I think it's more than that.B1a
27000707FAPlayer Default: That's one way to put it.{Thoughtful} He says he collects all the scrap because he likes to tinker, but I think it's more than that.A1a
28{Thoughtful} I think he's curious about the past, and he wants to hold on to it.A1b
29{Disapproving} If you ask me, living in the past is a waste of time.Player Default: It's hard enough just dealing with the present.A1c
3000078770Player Default: It's hard enough just dealing with the present.{Reflecting on a difficult past} That's part of it, sure, but it's also true that things were pretty bad for awhile out here.A1a
31{Relieved} We've got it pretty good compared to those days.Player Default: I'm glad to hear that things are better for you.A1b
3200078768Player Default: I'm glad to hear that things are better for you.{Friendly, amused... start with a chuckle / Friendly} That makes two of us.A1a
33{Friendly / Friendly} Well, it's been good talking to you. I'll see you around.Daniel: My dad says there was a time when you couldn't grow much of anything out here. A farm like ours would have been impossible.A1b
3400078767Player Default: There's no way things could be any worse than this.{Trying to convince someone that does not believe you} No, it's true.Daniel: My dad says there was a time when you couldn't grow much of anything out here. A farm like ours would have been impossible.B1a
3500078760Player Default: Well, it's been good talking to you. I'll see you around.{Reminiscing a bit} My dad says there was a time when you couldn't grow much of anything out here. A farm like ours would have been impossible.A1a
36It was more dangerous, too. There were some big raider gangs back then, and a lot more Feral Ghouls and Super Mutants than there are now.A1b
37If you wanted to be safe, you had to live near one of the bigger settlements, like Diamond City.A1c
38{Hint of pride} So, the people banded together and fought hard to make the Commonwealth a safer place.A1d
39{Unsure if it's true, but you like the story anyway} At least that's how my father tells it.Daniel: I'm sure you're bored to death by now. Still, it was good talking to you. I hope I'll see you again.A1e

42I'll be around if you are looking to trade.Daniel: The Forged moved into the ironworks not long ago and started recruiting. At first things were fine, but recently they've started raiding.B1b

49DialogueFinchFarmVendor00182083{A little exasperated, your dad is a hoarder} Yeah, that's my dad's stuff.X2a
