  1. 1.0 1.1 The Courier: "I need healing."
    Alvarez: "I'm afraid I'm not that kind of doctor. I'm a research scientist. You may want to try Old Mormon Fort in Freeside. They should have a doctor on duty."
    (Alvarez's dialogue)
  2. The Courier: "Can I join the Followers?"
    Alvarez: "Possibly, but I'd be the wrong person to ask. You'll need to speak to Dr. Schiller, who's on an errand at one of our other stations. He should be back tomorrow."
    (Alvarez's dialogue)
  3. The Courier: "What do you do here?"
    Alvarez: "This is just a site for local Followers to pick up assignments and check in. So most of the time we're just taking care of logistics and coordinating with other checkpoints over the radio."
    (Alvarez's dialogue)
  4. The Courier: "This is Veronica, formerly of the Brotherhood of Steel. She's interested in joining your cause."
    Alvarez: "The Brotherhood? Well, this is unusual, I must say. But very welcome. There's certainly a lot we could learn from your technological expertise. Doctor Schiller usually handles placement, and he won't be back until tomorrow. If you could come back then, we can see about your assignment."
    (Alvarez's dialogue)
