2{your partner, Professor Scara, is missing, and you're worried she might be dead / Depressed} Oh... it's you. If you brought any Bloatfly Glands, why don't you bring them back later. I'm not in the mood to deal with it right now.Player Default: If something's wrong, maybe I can help.A
30013C652Player Default: If something's wrong, maybe I can help.{Depressed} It's my colleague, Professor Scara.BoS301Duff: Her normal field expeditions never last more than a few days, but it's been over a week now.A1a

22Companion: Oh, another physician. Tell me, where did you go to university?Sure there are. Just a couple hundred years old, though.A2a
23Companion: Oh, another physician. Tell me, where did you go to university?My theory is you're a little off your rocker.A3a
24Companion: Oh, another physician. Tell me, where did you go to university?Most people look at medicine as a business these days. Makes no sense to share stuff with your competition.A4a

You're driving me crazy.{you and Professor Scara are a classic odd couple / Sad} Aww. I was trying to surprise you by cleaning it up. I thought you'd be happy.Scara: Sigh... I'm not mad at you, just frustrated. It might look like a mess, but I have a specific way of organizing everything that I own.A1a

34DuffGreetScene000A7D2D{enthusiastic about Science!, player has changed walked into your lab / Happy} Ready for that free Biology lesson after all?Player Default: Sure. Sounds fun.A
35{you previously asked the player to look for a Bloatfly, but he turned you down / Friendly} You. Have you changed your mind? Ready to hunt down a Bloatfly Gland for your field trip?Player Default: Think I have something already.A
360021A191{enthusiastic about Science!, player has changed walked into your lab / Friendly} Hi there! Are you here for today's free biology lesson?Player Default: Sure. Sounds fun.A1a
3700173B38Player Default: X-rays.{player answered the question incorrectly} Nope, not quite what we're looking for. The answer is gamma rays!Duff: Now. Gamma rays are bad. Really bad. If your body absorbs too much of that kind of radiation, you'll suffer from fatigue, anemia, even death.A1a
3800173B35Player Default: Gamma rays?{Happy} That's right!Duff: Now. Gamma rays are bad. Really bad. If your body absorbs too much of that kind of radiation, you'll suffer from fatigue, anemia, even death.Y1a
3900173B30Player Default: Nope, not quite what we're looking for. The answer is gamma rays!{like you're on TV, teaching a show about science, but the player is just a few feet away from you} Now. Gamma rays are bad. Really bad. If your body absorbs too much of that kind of radiation, you'll suffer from fatigue, anemia, even death.A1a
40{like you're on TV, teaching a show about science, but the player is just a few feet away from you} But some life forms have been living with Gamma radiation exposure for two centuries now, and they've adapted. Neat, huh?Player Default: Yes. Very interesting.A1b
4100173B2FPlayer Default: Yes. Very interesting.{like you're on TV, teaching a show about science, but the player is just a few feet away from you} That's what Science! is all about. Nothing stays the same. Everything reacts.Duff: Now it's time for the field trip portion of today's lesson! Are you ready?A1a
4200173B2EPlayer Default: No. It's horrible.{like you're on TV, teaching a show about science, but the player is just a few feet away from you} You might think that, but they key thing to remember is that life is always reacting to its environment. Otherwise, it dies!Duff: Now it's time for the field trip portion of today's lesson! Are you ready?B1a
4300173B2DPlayer Default: You are one huge nerd.{like you're on TV, teaching a show about science, but the player is just a few feet away from you} I, for one, take that as the highest compliment! Science teaches us the lessons we need to survive. Now more than ever.Duff: Now it's time for the field trip portion of today's lesson! Are you ready?X1a
4400173B2CPlayer Default: What kind of things have adapted to radiation?Oh, that's the perfect segue into the field trip portion of the lesson! Are you ready?Player Default: Sign me up.Y1a

4600173B2APlayer Default: Think I have something already.{player already has the bloatfly gland / Happy} That-a-boy! Who's my favorite junior scientist? You are!A1a
47Here's a little something for you. Don't spend it all in one place!A1b
48Player Default: Think I have something already.{player already has the bloatfly gland / Happy} That-a-girl! Who's my favorite junior scientist? You are!A2a
49Here's a little something for you. Don't spend it all in one place!A2b
50Player Default: Think I have something already.{player agrees to get the Bloatfly Gland} Remember, bring the gland back in one piece. Oh, and don't chew on it. One of the students got horribly sick because of that mistake.A3a
5100173B29Player Default: No way. I'm not hunting flies.{player refuses to play along and go on the field trip, crushed, not sure what to do / Sad} Oh... Well everything was kind of building up to... never mind then. Uh, I should get back to the lab.B1a
5200173B28Player Default: I do a job, I get paid.{Puzzled} Money? Oh. Uh... How about 125 caps?Player Default: Think I have something already.X1a
53Player Default: I do a job, I get paid.{player says there's risks and wants more money / Puzzled} That would explain why some students don't come back... How about 150 caps?Player Default: Think I have something already.X2a
54Player Default: I do a job, I get paid.{player says he needs more money for science / Puzzled} Well, if it's for science... 200.Player Default: Think I have something already.X3a
55Player Default: I do a job, I get paid.{player is haggling with you, but you're not willing to pay / Happy} This isn't about money. This is about Science! You gotta do it for the love of exploration.Player Default: Think I have something already.X4a
5600173B27Player Default: What did you need me to do again?Go out, find yourself a Bloatfly, collect a gland, and get back here to the rank of junior scientist! Up for it?Player Default: Think I have something already.Y1a
570004821EPlayer Default: Field trip?That's right. You go out, do some Science! of your own, and come back.Y1a
58I usually have a prize for the best junior scientist, which I guess is just automatically going to you! What do you say?Player Default: Sign me up.Y1b
590002A015Player Default: Sure. Sounds fun.{Happy} Yes! Love that enthusiasm.Duff: Now we all talk about radiation like it's a single thing, but it's actually a term referring to dozens of different ionizing rays.A1a
600002A014Player Default: Biology. No. Not even.{crushed, not sure what to do / Sad} Oh...well, if you're not...um...I guess I'll just get back to the lab then. *sigh*Duff: Now we all talk about radiation like it's a single thing, but it's actually a term referring to dozens of different ionizing rays.B1a
610002A013Player Default: As long as it's free.{a little confused, but still cheery} Why wouldn't it be? Let's get started.Duff: Now we all talk about radiation like it's a single thing, but it's actually a term referring to dozens of different ionizing rays.X1a
620002A012Player Default: Biology lesson?That's right. Usually the kids from the schoolhouse are the first to drop by, but I don't see why I can't start the lesson with you.Duff: Now we all talk about radiation like it's a single thing, but it's actually a term referring to dozens of different ionizing rays.Y1a
6300048230Player Default: Yes! Love that enthusiasm.{like you're on TV, teaching a show about science, but the player is just a few feet away from you / Happy} Now we all talk about radiation like it's a single thing, but it's actually a term referring to dozens of different ionizing rays.A1a
64{like you're on TV, teaching a show about science, but the player is just a few feet away from you / Happy} You have X-Rays, Beta Rays, Gamma Rays... But which one are we most worried about? The one most associated with the big, old bombs 20Player Default: X-rays.A1b
6500048221Player Default: Sign me up.{like you're on TV, teaching a show about science, but the player is just a few feet away from you} You're going to go out, and find a Bloatfly Gland. You see, the oversized Bloatfly of today evolved from an earlier species of smaller fly.A1a
66Radioactive adaptation has resulted in a unique gland that enables it to balance and maintain speed despite its size.A1b
67So what do you say? Ready to go out and dissect one?Player Default: Think I have something already.A1c
68-00017BF8Don't be afraid to speak your mind.
69Lost in thought? I know just how that feels.
70That's right. Think of just the right words. That's what I'd do.
71000048EBThere's my junior scientist! Hope you're continuing your own biological field work.
72Did you know in Chemistry you should never mix a base into an acidic compound? Lost a few eyebrows that way, I'll tell ya.
73Nuclear power destroyed the world, but without it, Diamond City wouldn't have any electricity!
74Sorry. Very busy right now with an experiment. As soon as I remember which one it is...
75I'm pretty sure I was supposed to check on something...
76Now where did I put those notes...

830004820DPlayer Default: Don't you remember me?{Thinking} No. Can't say I do. Did you need something from the Science! Center?Player Default: Yeah. I have this Bloatfly Gland. You asked for it.Y1a
840004820BQuestGiver: These glands are definitely the product of adaption to radioactive exposure. Maybe our own insides have adapted, as well. Wouldn't that be something?{Happy} Here's a little reward for my new junior scientist!A1a
8500048210Player Default: Yeah. I have this Bloatfly Gland. You asked for it.{suddenly remembering who the player is and that you asked him to go on the field trip / Surprised} Oh, the field trip. Of course! Wonderful. Let me just take that.A1a
86{Happy} These glands are definitely the product of adaption to radioactive exposure. Maybe our own insides have adapted, as well. Wouldn't that be something?QuestGiver: Here's a little reward for my new junior scientist!A1b
87-00048215Dissecting a Bloatfly can be fun. Just avoid getting stung to death, and you'll be a junior scientist in no time.
88Enjoy the field trip!
89Come back once you have that Bloatfly Gland, and you'll earn that prize.
90Have fun out there, and don't get killed. That'd be bad for progress.
