TOPIC TOPIC TEXT / PROMPT EMOTION RESPONSE TEXT #
MS03RCHistory1 Tell me about this city's history. Anger 50 What? I have better things to do than yak about those back-stabbers up topside. Now get going! 1
MS03RCHistory2A Please, it's very important. It's for a book about the Wasteland. Neutral 50 Like I care what you savages read? Shove off and leave an old man to rest in peace. 2
MS03RCHistory2B But you've been here for so long. You must know something... Anger 50 Feh. I know lots of things, but you've got no idea about most of them. Now get going, before I stop talking and start shooting! 3
MS03RCHistory2Special I hear you're the only one who knows the truth about Rivet City's founding. Disgust 20 Hah! Sounds like you've been poking around, all right. I'm surprised any of those reprobates even remember me. 4
Disgust 40 Maybe they still laugh about how they edged me out of the council, back then. But you can set the record straight! 5
MS03RCHistory3A Setting the record straight is exactly my goal. Happy 50 For that, you have to go all the way back to when remnants of the Naval Research Institute cleared the Mirelurks off this wreck about 40 years ago. {Pinkerton is proud of his moment of glory.} 6
Happy 10 We were looking for new lab-space, and this bucket of bolts just happened to have a well-preserved science bay on it. 7
Happy 25 Everything else just grew up around that lab once we got it up and running. The science team was led by one "H. Pinkerton." {Almost insufferably proud} 8
MS03RCHistory3B You were on the City Council? That's hard to believe. Happy 50 Well, start believing or start walking! Remnants of the Naval Research Institute cleared the Mirelurks off this wreck about 40 years ago. 9
Happy 10 We were looking for new lab-space, and this bucket of bolts just happened to have a well-preserved science bay on it. 10
Neutral 50 Everything else just grew up around that lab once we got it up and running. The science team was led by one "H. Pinkerton." {Almost insufferably proud} 11
MS03RCHistory4A So, you used to be in charge? How did you end up here? Anger 5 That lasted until 'bout 18 years ago, when those ambitious backbiters like Li and her little team showed up. 12
Anger 50 She came in with her big "Purity Project" pipe dream, and my whole staff started working with her, those traitors! 13
Anger 60 She even took my seat on the council. By then, I was glad to leave it behind. But hell if I'm leaving the city I made great! 14
MS03RCHistory4B If that's so, why are you stuck down here? Anger 5 About 18 years ago, Li and her ambitious little team of backbiters showed up. Ruined everything around here, they did! 15
Anger 50 She came in with her big "Purity Project" pipe dream, and my whole staff started working with her, those traitors! 16
Anger 60 She even took my seat on the council. By then, I was glad to leave it behind. But hell if I'm leaving the city I made great! 17
MS03RCHistory5A Do you have any hard evidence of all this? Anger 25 Of course I do! A good scientist always keeps track of their data! 18
Disgust 50 Here! They probably don't even remember, but I kept the records of that first council meeting. Take them, if it'll put them in their place! 19
MS03RCHistory5B I can't imagine why she'd be more popular. Even assuming this is all true. Anger 25 What're you suggesting, you little brat? I may not be on the science team anymore, but I still know how to keep records! 20
Disgust 50 Here! They probably don't even remember, but I kept the records of that first council meeting. Take them, if it'll put them in their place! 21
MS03RCHistory5Purity What do you know about Project Purity? Disgust 50 Who cares? It's some hydroponics pipe dream that Li's been working on forever. Waste of time and effort, I say. 22
Disgust 75 Apparently, though, my teams cared more about it than they did about little things like defense systems or making this ship float again. 23
Anger 50 Treacherous bastards, all of them. 24
MS08AskForProof I'm trying to convince Harkness he's an android, but he wants proof. Surprise 25 There's an audio log he himself recorded before the mind wipe. I've already told you, it's on my computer. There's also before and after pictures. 25
Surprise 50 Download those things and show him. That will be all the proof he needs. 26
Surprise 10 But I'm telling you, be careful. Harkness is wound tight. If you go poking holes in his reality, he might come undone. Trust me. You don't want that. {trying to warn someone who is about to do something stupid} 27
MS08Pinkerton Let's discuss the facial reconstruction and mind wipe you did for the Android. Anger 75 What're you talking about, boy? I don't know anything about any of that, and a what-did-you-call-it? An android? What's that? {feigning anger to cover his hiding a secret} 28
Let's discuss the facial reconstruction and mind wipe you did for the Android. Anger 75 What are you talking about, girl? I don't know anything about any of that, and a what-did-you-call-it? An android? What's that? {feigning anger to cover his hiding a secret} 29
MS08PinkertonA1 Let's just say it's in your best interest to tell me what I want to know. Happy 10 Fine, whatever. This android, calls himself Harkness now, comes in and wants a memory job. I took new memories, and replaced his old ones. {superficially begrudgingly (deep down glad to tell someone about his exploits)} 30
Happy 100 Don't believe anyone's done that before. Certainly not down here. That Commonwealth tech isn't all that fancy when it comes down to it. {glad to tell someone about his exploits} 31
Happy 50 I'm also the only one in the wasteland with the skill and the nerve to perform facial surgery. That android flesh aint so different than ours. {bragging} 32
Surprise 50 You want proof? I documented the whole thing. So I could rub it in the face of Dr. Li when I need to rankle her feathers. I hate that snooty bitch. {bragging} 33
MS08PinkertonA2 Maybe 100 caps will jog your memory? Disgust 50 It's things like bottlecaps, and property, and ownership and all that nonsense that makes a person think he's better than another. Bah! {bah humbug} 34
Surprise 50 But I'll take your caps just the same. This android came in as one person, and he left as someone else. I replaced his face AND his memories! {accepting a bribe (glad to talk about how smart he is)} 35
Happy 100 Don't believe anyone's done that before. Certainly not down here. That Commonwealth tech isn't all that fancy when it comes down to it. {glad to tell someone about his exploits} 36
Happy 50 I'm also the only one in the Wasteland with the skill and the nerve to perform facial surgery. That android flesh ain't so different than ours. {bragging} 37
Surprise 50 You want proof? I documented the whole thing. So I could rub it in the face of Dr. Li when I need to rankle her feathers. I hate that snooty bitch. {bragging} 38
MS08PinkertonA3 Sorry, I must have you confused with somebody else. Forget I mentioned it. Surprise 25 Hmph. No one else could do it, that's for damn sure. {grumbling under his breath (he wants to talk about how great he is, but doesn't want to blow his cover)} 39
Anger 50 Just get out of here. Can't you leave an old man in peace? And stay away from my stuff! {grumpy} 40
Disgust 50 Hope the Mirelurks get you, damn nosy kid. {(under his breath)} 41
MS08PinkertonAboutAndroid1 So why'd you help the android? Happy 50 Ha! Why do you think? I wanted to crack open that Commonwealth can opener to see what was inside. 42
Neutral 50 There's stuff in there I'd only heard about, and even then I didn't believe it. I can see why that Zimmer feller wanted him back so bad. 43
MS08PinkertonAboutAndroid2 What do you know about this android Railroad? Neutral 50 Bunch of bleeding heart morons if you ask me. They're going to get themselves killed one of these days. And for what? Machine liberation? 44
Neutral 50 But, they have brought me some really interesting tech over the years, so I guess they're okay. And that android! He was the chance of a lifetime. 45
MS08PinkertonAboutAndroid3 What do you know about the Commonwealth? Neutral 50 Most of it's a blasted nothing, just like here. But there's talk. Rumors, mostly. About a place called the Institute. 46
Neutral 50 That's where Zimmer and that android came from. God knows what else they got goin' on in there, but it puts our tech to shame, that's for damn sure. 47
MS08PinkertonAHacked I took a little peek at the files in your computer. Tell me about the android. Neutral 50 You hacked my computer? You've got some skills. It's been a while since I've met someone smart enough to best me. So I'll let that slide. {shocked} 48
Surprise 50 I documented the whole thing. So I could rub it in the face of Dr. Li when I need to rankle her feathers. I hate that snooty bitch. {bragging} 49
MS08PinkertonB1 I'm sorry you don't get along with Dr. Li. But we were discussing the android. Disgust 50 That witch ruined my life, but you're right. Who gives a crap about any of that. You want your precious proof. {annoyed} 50
Neutral 50 It's all in my computer; here's the password. See for yourself. Hell, just take these pictures and this holotape. Straight from the synthman's lips. 51
Neutral 50 Just don't go telling Harkness though. He won't believe you anyway. And you really don't want to see him upset. He can be a bit... inhospitable. {warning someone but betting his advice will be ignored anyway} 52
MS08PinkertonB2 What's she got to do with this? Show me this "proof" about the android. Disgust 50 Well, she's got nothing to do with anything, except ruining my whole goddamn life. But I can see you don't give a crap about any of that. Fine. {annoyed} 53
Neutral 50 It's all in my computer; here's the password. See for yourself. Hell, just take these pictures and this holotape. Straight from the synthman's lips. 54
Neutral 50 Just don't go telling Harkness though. He won't believe you anyway. And you really don't want to see him upset. He can be a bit... inhospitable. {warning someone but betting his advice will be ignored anyway} 55
MS08PinkertonB3 Yeah, she's a bitch... Can we talk about the android now? Disgust 50 You're damn right she's a bitch. Ruined my whole goddamn life. But I can see you don't give a crap about any of that. Fine. {annoyed} 56
Neutral 50 It's all in my computer; here's the password. See for yourself. Hell, just take these pictures and this holotape. Straight from the synthman's lips. 57
Neutral 50 Just don't go telling Harkness though. He won't believe you anyway. And you really don't want to see him upset. He can be a bit... inhospitable. {warning someone but betting his advice will be ignored anyway} 58
MS08PinkertonC1 Harkness should be told. You'd want to know if you were an android. Anger 90 Maybe I am! Maybe I'm going to have my android army rise up against you and your human ilk! 59
Happy 100 Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Sorry... Oh... sorry, I couldn't resist... 60
Neutral 50 I suppose you're right. But don't worry, I didn't really wipe his memories. I just buried them. But you can get them back. 61
Neutral 50 All you need to do is use the recall code. Just say to him, "Activate A3-21 Recall Code Violet" and that will activate the hidden subroutines. 62
MS08PinkertonC2 What if this evidence doesn't work? What if Harkness doesn't believe me? Neutral 50 Well, there is something else you could use. Look, I didn't really wipe his memories. Okay? I just sort of filed them away. But you can get 'em back. 63
Neutral 50 All you need to do is use the recall code. Just say to him, "Activate A3-21 Recall Code Violet" and that will activate the hidden subroutines. 64
MS08PinkertonC3 There's something you aren't telling me. Isn't there? Neutral 50 Oh, all right. So maybe I didn't wipe his mind, like he asked. But I buried it! Deep! Almost as good, really. But it's still there. Still accessible. 65
Neutral 50 All you need to do is use the recall code. Just say to him, "Activate A3-21 Recall Code Violet" and that will activate the hidden subroutines. 66
RCPinkerton What are you doing here in this wrecked part of the ship? Disgust 50 I live here. It's where I do my work. And it's FAR away from Dr. Li and all those other monkeys dressed up like scientists. {annoyed} 67
Surprise 10 You made it past my defenses, which proves you aren't a dummy. AND you haven't killed me, so I suppose you aren't here to do that. {considering} 68
Happy 10 I suppose you can hang around if you want. Just don't touch anything. {considering he might have made a new friend, but putting on airs of not caring} 69
RCPinkertonFacialReconstruction You think you could perform a Facial Reconstruction on me? Surprise 50 And how! I AM the only one in all of the Wasteland with the skill and the guts to perform facial reconstruction, you know. { cocky} 70
Neutral 50 Look. You're different from all those other jerkoffs, so I'll make you a deal. You want a little nip-tuck here and there, I'll do it for ya. 71
Happy 50 I'll get to hone my skill, and you'll get the best surgeon around. The likelihood of death by infection at my hands is only... hmm... 35% let's say. {cocky} 72
Surprise 50 So, what do you want to look like? {cocky} 73
I need a Facial Reconstruction. Happy 50 What do you want to look like? {cocky} 74
RCPinkertonWork What kind of work do you do in here? Anger 50 The secret kind... {annoyed} 75
Happy 75 Well, if you must know... I'm an electrician and computer expert. AND I'm a bit of surgeon. Really, the most gifted scientist you'll find... {bragging} 76
Anger 100 Hmph. I'm the guy that got Rivet City up and running in the first place! {bitter and grumbling} 77
Disgust 100 And after all that Li and her gang of flunkies pushed me out. Ha! Project Purity indeed. What a bunch of morons -- they can't even clean some water. 78
SpeechChallengeFailure SpeechChallengeFailure Neutral 50 Sorry. You ain't all that good at sweet talking. Maybe if you came back with some caps. 79
