1DialogueInstituteEnricoFirstGreetingScene000A7CC8{Nervous, a little exasperated} It's a real juggling act, trying to keep all the systems down here operating in the green.EnricoThompson: This place might look shiny and new, but there's a lot of old technology in these walls.A
2000D1355NPCMEnricoThompson: It's a real juggling act, trying to keep all the systems down here operating in the green.This place might look shiny and new, but there's a lot of old technology in these walls.A1a
3I lose sleep worrying about when the next blackout's going to hit.Player Default: Looks like everything's running great. I'd say your doing your job.A1b
4000D1354Player Default: Looks like everything's running great. I'd say your doing your job.Hey, thanks. It's nice to be appreciated. Most people just take my work for granted.A1a
5It's the kind of work that only gets noticed when something goes wrong, if you know what I mean.EnricoThompson: There's some stuff I need to check on. See you around, yeah?A1b
6000D1353Player Default: Look, I don't want to get trapped down here because the power goes out.What, you think I do?B1a
7If it's any comfort to you, I take my job very seriously for exactly that reason.EnricoThompson: There's some stuff I need to check on. See you around, yeah?B1b
8000D1352Player Default: So basically, this place is a sham. Great.I wouldn't say that. I mean, even the older tech has held up for decades, some even for centuries.X1a
9It's pretty amazing, when you think about it. Our ancestors built things to last.X1b
10Of course, that was before they blew everything up in the war.EnricoThompson: There's some stuff I need to check on. See you around, yeah?X1c
11000D1351Player Default: How old are we talking about?Well, the reactor and a lot of the related systems - you know, cooling, monitoring, power distribution - that's all pre-war tech.Y1a
12Most of the superstructure down here was built later, by the people who survived the war.Y1b
13I guess each generation's been tinkering with the place, adding labs, making upgrades and so on.EnricoThompson: There's some stuff I need to check on. See you around, yeah?Y1c
14000D134CPlayer Default: It's the kind of work that only gets noticed when something goes wrong, if you know what I mean.There's some stuff I need to check on. See you around, yeah?A1a
15-000D12ED{Wondering why the player has stopped talking.} You feeling alright?

17{Exasperated / Tired} I fix one relay, and two more start to fail. At least I'm not bored.

It feels wrong.{Confused / Puzzled} I don't understand what the issue is. He is as real as any child I've ever seen.JanetThompson: That! We gave him every capability of a real child, except a future.

2400169112{Concerned / Concerned} What's wrong? You look upset.JanetThompson: Nothing... I saw the synth Shaun today. There's something about him that just makes me sad.A1a
2500169110JanetThompson: Nothing... I saw the synth Shaun today. There's something about him that just makes me sad.{Comforting / Friendly} Why? He's not perfect, but he's a remarkable step forward for the program. You all did an amazing job.JanetThompson: No I know, but I can't stop thinking about him. He's supposed to be an exact replica of a child but that's all he'll ever be. It feels wrong.A1a

40MinVsInstStage50EnricoSavagesScene000A142CPlayer Default: The Minutemen were only doing what they felt was right.Well from here it looked like they were out for blood. And if you hadn't arrived, I think they might've gotten it.Enrico: Can we just get on with this, please?A1a
41000A142BPlayer Default: Those are good men out there. You have no right to insult them like that.{frustrated, sarcastic} Those "good men" of yours wanted to kill me. Forgive me for not thinking terribly highly of them.Enrico: Can we just get on with this, please?B1a
42000A142APlayer Default: Those "savages" had you pretty well cornered.{flustered} Did I not mention the part where we didn't expect this? This was supposed to be a simple extraction.Enrico: Can we just get on with this, please?X1a
43000A1429Player Default: Weren't you prepared for some amount of resistance?Of course not!Y1a

48Oh, thank god you're here.Enrico: I was starting to worry we might not make it out of this mess.A
490015D2ECPlayer Default: If he's really important to the Institute, then it's worth it.You're right, I suppose.Companion: Just get to the damn information. Who am I shootin'?A1a
500015D2EBPlayer Default: Far as I can tell, you were only in "harm's way" because you screwed this up.Look, I had the same intelligence reports as everyone else. No one saw this coming.Companion: Enough yappin'. Just give us the information already.B1a
510015D2EAPlayer Default: This does seems like lots of effort for just one man.If things were different, we might not be here. Not now, at least. But with the situation in the Commonwealth being what it is...Companion: Cait interjectsX1a
520015D2E9Player Default: Why did the Institute send you, specifically?They thought I'd be able to relate to him, with my scientific background.Companion: Cait interjectsY1a

540015D2E3Player Default: You're right, I suppose.I know they've been keeping an eye on him for years. Not sure how they originally found him; probably don't want to know.Enrico: But once they realized how smart he was, and what an asset he could be for Phase Three, they watched pretty closely.A1a
550015D2E2Enrico: I know they've been keeping an eye on him for years.

You know, testing him. To see if he was Institute material.A1a

62Player Default: It wouldn't have been such a mess if you'd handled it differently.I never claimed to be suited for field work, and I explicitly stated that when given this assignment!B2a

67{frustrated} If I'd known, I'd... I don't know, maybe I'd have tried to handle things differently.Enrico: I know he's potentially important to Phase Three and all, but I'm not sure it's worth putting ourselves in harm's way...Y1c
68000A1423Enrico: I think they even fed him scientific material from time to time, to see how good he was. You know, testing him. To see if he was Institute material.Let's just get Wallace and get out of here.Player Default: No argument from me. Let's go.A1a
69000A1422Player Default: No argument from me. Let's go.{slightly embarrassed} Right...Enrico: There's just... well, there's a slight problem with that. He doesn't want to go with us.A1a

75000A141APlayer Default: Right...There's just... well, there's a slight problem with that. He doesn't want to go with us.Enrico: I was thinking... Maybe you could try and talk to him.A1a
76MinVsInstStage50EnricoWallaceScene000A275EI was thinking... Maybe you could try and talk to him.Player Default: No problem. I'm sure I can get him to see reason.A1a

80Just don't antagonize him, and you should be fine.X1b
81000A275APlayer Default: Any advice on how to talk to him?Don't make him angry. Let him know we're not going to hurt him... In fact, his life would improve considerably.Y1a
