1-00061C1AThis truly is a wonderful place, isn't it?
2{amused by the irony / Amused} Someday, father, this will all be yours...
3{amused by the irony / Amused} Someday, mother, this will all be yours...
4I'm glad you could be here to share this with me.
5Our advances will, in time, change the world.
6I couldn't be more proud of what we've achieved.
7Perhaps someday our synths can reclaim the Commonwealth.
8Hello, father. I hope your time in the Institute has been enjoyable.
9Hello, mother. Enjoying your time here?
10Let your surroundings be a reminder of what Science and willpower can accomplish.
11I often wonder what the Institute's founders would think of our accomplishments.

25Inst301SceneFatherEnd000E20A3{A bit detached and formal, but with genuine warmth / Relieved} I'm glad to see you return safely.Father: I know the task was difficult, but I needed you to see firsthand how dangerous a rogue synth can be.A
26000E7065NPCMShaun60: I'm glad to see you return safely.{Formal, a lesson} I know the task was difficult, but I needed you to see firsthand how dangerous a rogue synth can be.Player Default: Gabriel and his gang were sick bastards, hanging their victims up like trophies. I'm just glad it's over.A1a
27000E7064Player Default: Gabriel and his gang were sick bastards, hanging their victims up like trophies. I'm just glad it's over.{Sad / Sad} While we can do nothing for Gabriel's victims, we can at least take comfort in the knowledge that the threat has been removed.Father: In any case, the mission is over.A1a
28000E7063Player Default: The Institute created that synth, so the Institute is responsible for what it does.{A lesson, preaching a bit} I disagree. A synth is no more inherently evil than a handgun.B1a
29{A lesson, preaching a bit} When a man dies by gunshot, is the weapon's maker blamed? Of course not.B1b
30{A lesson, preaching a bit} The blame rightly falls on he who pulled the trigger.B1c
31{A lesson, preaching a bit} Yes, we created the synth, but whether they intended to or not, the Railroad's agents turned it into a killer.Father: In any case, the mission is over.B1d
32000E7062Player Default: I don't care about who's to blame. I just wanted to stop a killer.Yes, of course. Your pragmatism is admirable.X1a
33{A warning} It does matter, though. If everyone sees the Institute as a villain, dangerous forces could align against us.X1b
34If we can put the lie to such assumptions, we diminish that threat.Father: In any case, the mission is over.X1c
35000E7061Player Default: Why do you care what happens on the surface? You're in your own world down here.{Wary / Concerned} Because there are forces on the surface that could pose a threat to us, and only a fool ignores a possible threat.Y1a
36We might diminish that danger by correcting the false perception that we intend some great harm to mankind.Father: In any case, the mission is over.Y1b
37000E705CPlayer Default: While we can do nothing for Gabriel's victims, we can at least take comfort in the knowledge that the threat has been removed.{Matter-of-fact} In any case, the mission is over.A1a
38{A little disappointed to start, then evening out to a more neutral tone} While it's unfortunate that the synth was destroyed, the important thing is that you could see some of the good work we do.Father: While you were away, I had quarters prepared for you.A1b
39Player Default: While we can do nothing for Gabriel's victims, we can at least take comfort in the knowledge that the threat has been removed.{Amiable, good news} But enough about that. The task is done and you've returned our synth safely to us.A2a
40{Amiable, good news / Happy} I couldn't have hoped for a better outcome. Well done.Father: While you were away, I had quarters prepared for you.A2b
41000E705BFather: While it's unfortunate that the synth was destroyed, the important thing is that you could see some of the good work we do.{Magnanimous} While you were away, I had quarters prepared for you.A1a
42You'll find all the basic necessities, as well as a generous stock of arms and equipment.A1b
43{Warm, generous, a bit excited even. You're proud of your gift.} Go and have a look. I think you'll be quite pleased.A1c
44Inst301SceneFatherIntro000E20A3{Proud / Question} Now that you've had a chance to see the Institute first-hand, what do you think?Player Default: You've got technology here that I never dreamed possible. It's amazing.A
4500123DDDPlayer Default: If the synths are intelligent and self-aware, then they have a right to free will.However closely they may approximate human behavior, they are still our creations.A1a
46{Confident / Confident} When you see what I have to show you, I think you'll agree that we know what is best for our synths.Father: A rogue synth has taken over the raider gang at Libertalia.A1b
4700123DDCPlayer Default: If they're so dangerous, you should destroy them and start over with a better design.{Confident / Confident} There is no need for such drastic action. We are constantly working to correct any flaws that might arise.B1a
48{Confident / Confident} As you will soon see, we're also more than capable of reclaiming any synths that become a danger to the surface.Father: A rogue synth has taken over the raider gang at Libertalia.B1b
4900123DDBPlayer Default: So it's like every other wonder-gizmo ever invented. When will you eggheads learn?{Amused} Have faith. Let me show you how we deal with such problems.Father: A rogue synth has taken over the raider gang at Libertalia.X1a
5000123DDAPlayer Default: What do you mean by proper supervision?I mean that while they are here in the Institute, fulfilling the purpose for which they were designed, our synths perform admirably.Y1a
51{Pause at the ellipsis as you choose the next word carefully} As you're about to see, however, they can become... unpredictable when set loose.Father: A rogue synth has taken over the raider gang at Libertalia.Y1b
5200123B93Player Default: You've got technology here that I never dreamed possible. It's amazing.{Approving / Neutral} I'm glad you can appreciate what we've accomplished. None of it has been easy.Father: Ultimately, all of our knowledge and resources are focused on a single goal. That goal is best summarized by our motto: Mankind - redefined.A1a
5300123B92Player Default: If you expect me to be impressed by a lot of fancy sci-fi gizmos, you'd be wrong.{Disappointed / Concerned} I see.B1a
54{A little condescending, but not intentionally / Concerned} It's not just about the "gizmos," as you say. I hope you'll see that in time.Father: Ultimately, all of our knowledge and resources are focused on a single goal. That goal is best summarized by our motto: Mankind - redefined.B1b
5500123B91Player Default: I've seen my share of think-tank science labs.{Self-assured, confident / Confident} Oh, I assure you, none of them were quite like this place.Father: Ultimately, all of our knowledge and resources are focused on a single goal. That goal is best summarized by our motto: Mankind - redefined.X1a
5600123B90Player Default: First things first. How do I get back to the surface?The same way you got in, of course.Y1a
57{Reassuring. / Neutral} You are not a prisoner here. You may come and go as you please.Father: Ultimately, all of our knowledge and resources are focused on a single goal. That goal is best summarized by our motto: Mankind - redefined.Y1b
5800123B8FPlayer Default: I'm glad you can appreciate what we've accomplished. None of it has been easy.{Confident... grandstanding a bit / Confident} Ultimately, all of our knowledge and resources are focused on a single goal. That goal is best summarized by our motto: Mankind - redefined.Father: Unfortunately, no advancement comes without occasional setbacks.A1a
5900123B86Father: Ultimately, all of our knowledge and resources are focused on a single goal. That goal is best summarized by our motto: Mankind - redefined.{Concerned} Unfortunately, no advancement comes without occasional setbacks.A1a
60{choosing words carefully / Concerned} As remarkable as our synths are, they can be... dangerous without proper supervision.A1b
61{Concerned} The superior synth mind and body attempting to wrestle with something approaching free will can be a recipe for chaos.Player Default: If the synths are intelligent and self-aware, then they have a right to free will.A1c
6200123B85Player Default: When you see what I have to show you, I think you'll agree that we know what is best for our synths.A rogue synth has taken over the raider gang at Libertalia.A1a
63His memories have been erased and his identity altered. He believes he's a man named Gabriel.A1b
64{Tinged with regret} Under his leadership, the raiders have taken many innocent lives.A1c
65I've dispatched a Courser to Libertalia. I'd like you to join him and reclaim that synth.Player Default: We'll bring that synth home.A1d
6600123B80Player Default: We'll bring that synth home.{Certain} That would be best for everyone.Father: Now, you should get moving. Many people are in danger, and a delay could cost lives.A1a
6700123B7FPlayer Default: It might not want to talk. It would be safer just to kill it.{Disapproving} That would be a terrible waste of a valuable resource.B1a
68If at all possible, that synth should be returned alive.Father: Now, you should get moving. Many people are in danger, and a delay could cost lives.B1b
6900123B7EPlayer Default: Sure, we'll just fight our way through an army of homicidal maniacs and ask this synth to come on home.I didn't say it would be easy, but I'm confident that with a Courser at your side, you'll have no trouble.Father: Now, you should get moving. Many people are in danger, and a delay could cost lives.X1a
7000123B7DPlayer Default: Who erased his memories? And why?Those idealistic radicals who call themselves the Railroad are behind it.Y1a
71{Urgency} We'll deal with them in time, but right now the priority is to reclaim that synth before more harm is done.Father: Now, you should get moving. Many people are in danger, and a delay could cost lives.Y1b
7200123B7CPlayer Default: That would be best for everyone.{Self-assured, confident, knowing} Now, you should get moving. Many people are in danger, and a delay could cost lives.A1a
73-000E20A2{Urgent} The sooner that synth is safely back in the Institute, the better for everyone.
74Libertalia isn't hard to find. Just look for the jumble of wrecked ships floating in the harbor.
75{Urgent} You should get going. There's no time to waste.
76I hope you'll find your quarters adequate.
77You should go and see the room we've prepared for you.
78{Confident} Now you'll have a place to stay that's far safer than any on the surface.
79000E2096{Sad, with heavy heart} A regrettable turn of events.
80{Sad, with heavy heart} I wish there was something I could say or do to ease your pain, but there's no changing the past.
81{Sad, with heavy heart} All that we can do now is to make the most of what time we have left.
82Nevertheless, they are a danger. Allow me to explain.

88{RE-RECORD} That will now be significantly harder. There will be accusations that you deliberately sabotaged the mission.Shaun: Bunker Hill was to cement your place as a valuable asset to the Institute. It will now only raise suspicions.A1b
89000FCE15Player Default: I made a choice. I let the synths go free.{confused, upset / Disbelief} Why? Why would you do something so... so stupid?Player Default: They were afraid. They didn't want to come back here.B1a
90Player Default: I made a choice. I let the synths go free.{disappointed/frustrated RE-RECORD / Stern} Wasn't enough? A single Courser could have done that job by himself. You must see how disappointing this is.B2a
91{RE-RECORD} It's already been suggested that the mission was sabotaged. Do you have any idea how difficult this makes things for me?Shaun: Bunker Hill was to cement your place as a valuable asset to the Institute. It will now only raise suspicions.B2b

263I must say, it's somewhat embarrassing to attempt to name you as my successor when you can't even be bothered to stay at the meeting.Shaun: Well, I'm not sure how much you heard about the state of the reactor, but it was apparently too much to ask for you to be there for the rest.A1b

505Take care of Doctor Filmore, if you would. She's eager, but doesn't have much experience above ground.A
506I dislike resorting to the use of Commonwealth technology, but the advantage it will provide in this case cannot be overlooked.A

It follows my lead, and thus for now, you must as well. Will you trust me?Player Default: All right, I'll go along with it.B2a
73800017EAFPlayer Default: All right, I'll go along with it.{pleased} Excellent.Shaun: The Institute is now your home as much as it is mine. Please, take some time and get to know it. Meet the people you'll be working with.A1a
73900017EACPlayer Default: I can't afford to trust anyone.{heartbroken, trying to hide it.} I see. I am... disappointed.Shaun: I had certainly hoped we could work together, but every man must make his own decisions. If you choose to leave, I cannot force you to stay.B1a
74000017EABPlayer Default: I just don't know...I'm afraid there can be no more time for indecision. Please, let me show you what we can accomplish together.Player Default: All right, I'll go along with it.X1a
74100017EA5Player Default: "Follow your lead?" Why do you get to call the shots?{slightly annoyed} Because my entire life has taken place within these walls. I have studied, I have trained, I have devoted my life to the Institute.Y1a
742{Stern} I have proven time and time again that the success of the Institute is my primary goal, and I have sacrificed a great deal along the way.Y1b
743I assure you, I gain nothing by lying to you. Will you trust me?Player Default: All right, I'll go along with it.Y1c
744MQ207Stage150SynthScene0021572FPlayer Default: You made a child synth... that looks like you. That's... it's... It's an abomination!{disappointed / Irritated} It's a synth, not a human being. A simulacrum. Try to be more open-minded.Shaun: I'll make sure it's brought back online in the near future. You'll have an opportunity to interact with him further.B1a
7450021572EPlayer Default: It seems like a strange choice, on more than one level.{sympathetic, proud / Apologetic} I can understand how it might seem that way. It was... it is, something new. New discoveries are always welcome.Shaun: I'll make sure it's brought back online in the near future. You'll have an opportunity to interact with him further.X1a
7460021572DPlayer Default: Why build it to look like you?{proud} We'd advanced the technology behind synths to a point where this struck me as an interesting variation.Y1a
747{proud} A new angle, if you will. Modeling it after myself seemed only natural, what with Institute records on my genetics and physiology.Shaun: I'll make sure it's brought back online in the near future. You'll have an opportunity to interact with him further.Y1b
7480021571EPlayer Default: Yes, but... not the Shaun you were looking for. In some ways, the synth is far closer to what you expected.I wouldn't claim to know everything that you're feeling, but... If in some small way the boy's presence can help, I hope you'll keep an open mind.A1a
74900215731PlayerVoiceFemale01: Shaun, about this synth...{proud / Neutral} You mean the child? It's a fascinating project, really. There are issues to be solved, of course, but we've made remarkable progress.Player Default: He's definitely impressive.A1a
75000215730Player Default: He's definitely impressive.{proud} Yes, it's pushed our technology to the limit. We've gained some valuable insights in terms of both hardware and software.Shaun: I'll make sure it's brought back online in the near future. You'll have an opportunity to interact with him further.A1a
75100215728Player Default: Yes, it's pushed our technology to the limit. We've gained some valuable insights in terms of both hardware and software.I'll make sure it's brought back online in the near future. You'll have an opportunity to interact with him further.Shaun: But... I'll admit, I'm curious. As a parent looking for his child, looking for the younger version of me... What do you think?A1a
75200215727Shaun: I'll make sure it's brought back online in the near future. You'll have an opportunity to interact with him further.But... I'll admit, I'm curious. As a parent looking for his child, looking for the younger version of me... What do you think?A1a
753{Question} Do you think you could love him? Like you would a real boy?Player Default: I don't need a synth. I found the real Shaun.A1b
75400215726Player Default: I don't need a synth. I found the real Shaun.Yes, but... not the Shaun you were looking for. In some ways, the synth is far closer to what you expected.Shaun: I wouldn't claim to know everything that you're feeling, but... If in some small way the boy's presence can help, I hope you'll keep an open mind.A1a
75500215725Player Default: It's not you. It's not even human. I could never love that.No, perhaps not. But in many ways, he matches what you've been searching for all this time.Shaun: I wouldn't claim to know everything that you're feeling, but... If in some small way the boy's presence can help, I hope you'll keep an open mind.B1a
75600215724Player Default: This is all... it's too much. I just don't know anymore.I understand. You've been through quite a lot.Shaun: I wouldn't claim to know everything that you're feeling, but... If in some small way the boy's presence can help, I hope you'll keep an open mind.X1a
75700215723Player Default: Seriously? You really believe a human could love a synth?That's... a difficult question. I suppose it depends on how closely we've managed to mimic human behavior and emotions.Y1a
758Yours is a unique position. Possibly the only one that's truly able to answer these questions right now.Shaun: I wouldn't claim to know everything that you're feeling, but... If in some small way the boy's presence can help, I hope you'll keep an open mind.Y1b
759-0002B509{disappointed} It's time for you to leave.
760{disappointed} You'll have to go now. I'm sorry.
761{disappointed} I wish things had gone differently.
