Scene SceneDialogue Custom Player Default: Sorry to bother you, then. Mm hm. Goodbye. Player Default: I'll let you get back to work, then. DialogueInstituteIsaacFirstGreeting
Scene SceneDialogue Custom Player Default: If you're busy, that's one thing, but I don't care for your tone. My tone? DialogueInstituteIsaacFirstGreeting
Scene SceneDialogue Custom There's no need to take offense. As you can clearly see, I'm deeply involved in some rather complicated mental equations. DialogueInstituteIsaacFirstGreeting
Scene SceneDialogue Custom Now, how about I get back to those and you get back to whatever it is you're doing. Player Default: I'll let you get back to work, then. DialogueInstituteIsaacFirstGreeting
Scene SceneDialogue Custom Player Default: Someone's a little full of himself. Hardly. There is no place for ego in science. DialogueInstituteIsaacFirstGreeting
Scene SceneDialogue Custom I am simply trying to tell you, in as polite as manner as possible, that I am busy. DialogueInstituteIsaacFirstGreeting
Scene SceneDialogue Custom Now, goodbye. Player Default: I'll let you get back to work, then. DialogueInstituteIsaacFirstGreeting
Scene SceneDialogue Custom Player Default: Working on something important? *Sigh* All of my work is important. DialogueInstituteIsaacFirstGreeting
Scene SceneDialogue Custom Now, if you're quite finished, I'd very much like to get back to these mental equations. DialogueInstituteIsaacFirstGreeting
Scene SceneDialogue Custom They're difficult enough without the distractions. Player Default: I'll let you get back to work, then. DialogueInstituteIsaacFirstGreeting
Scene SceneDialogue Custom Player Default: I'll let you get back to work, then. Good. DialogueInstituteIsaacFirstGreeting
Scene SceneDialogue Custom Player Default: Those mental equations will get a lot tougher after I sock you in the jaw. Er, what? Now just a moment. There's no need to get angry. DialogueInstituteIsaacFirstGreeting
Scene SceneDialogue Custom If an apology will suffice to stem your anger, then I'll offer it. DialogueInstituteIsaacFirstGreeting
Scene SceneDialogue Custom So nice talking to you. Goodbye! DialogueInstituteIsaacFirstGreeting
Scene SceneDialogue Custom Player Default: What a charmer. If that was an attempt at humor, I'm afraid it's lost on me. I'm much too preoccupied with my equations. DialogueInstituteIsaacFirstGreeting
Scene SceneDialogue Custom And now, if we're quite finished here, I'll return to them. DialogueInstituteIsaacFirstGreeting
Scene SceneDialogue Custom Player Default: Equations for what? *Sigh* Honestly, you wouldn't understand them. DialogueInstituteIsaacFirstGreeting
Scene SceneDialogue Custom Now I'm afraid I must end this little chat, although it's been so very diverting. DialogueInstituteIsaacFirstGreeting
Miscellaneous Miscellaneous WaitingForPlayerInput Well? Awaiting an answer. Wondering why the player has stopped talking.

Miscellaneous Miscellaneous Hello I'm sorry, but I'm too preoccupied for chit-chat. Annoyed, dismissive
Miscellaneous Miscellaneous Hello Director Holdren seems very taken with you. Petty, envious
Miscellaneous Miscellaneous Hello Please resist any urge you might feel to eat the specimens in the hydroponic garden. Nagging, almost scolding

Scene SceneDialogue Custom NPCMIsaacKarlin: You made a real mess of things at Warwick Homestead. Oh yes, we know all about what happened. Angry, stern / Stern InstM01IsaacSceneFailed
Scene SceneDialogue Custom I told you to be discreet and you blatantly disregarded that directive. Angry, stern / Stern InstM01IsaacSceneFailed
Scene SceneDialogue Custom Now what do you have to say for yourself? Player Default: I'm sorry. I guess I just lost control. Stern, angry / Stern InstM01IsaacSceneFailed

Scene SceneDialogue Custom Player Default: I don't owe you an explanation, doctor. You have no authority over me. Yes, well... You should know that I'll be reporting this to Father and the rest of the Directorate. Isaac: Your carelessness has jeopardized months of research. You've been thwarted, but you're still angry and vindictive / Stern InstM01IsaacSceneFailed
Scene SceneDialogue Custom Player Default: Look, sometimes things don't go the way you planned. That's life. Is that supposed to excuse your behavior? Stern / Stern InstM01IsaacSceneFailed
Scene SceneDialogue Custom How disappointing. I hoped you would at least have the sense to take responsibility for your actions. Isaac: Your carelessness has jeopardized months of research. Stern, disappointed / Stern InstM01IsaacSceneFailed

Scene SceneDialogue Custom In the meantime, I suggest that you think very carefully about whether you truly belong here. Stern / Stern InstM01IsaacSceneFailed
Scene SceneDialogue Custom Player Default: Yeah, pretty much. Splendid, splendid. Isaac: Here you are then, something to aid in your future missions, courtesy of the BioScience Division. Friendly InstM01IsaacSceneComplete
Scene SceneDialogue Custom Player Default: Hardly. Don't tell me the simple act of carrying a packet of seeds from point A to point B proved difficult for you, hm? Irritated InstM01IsaacSceneComplete
Scene SceneDialogue Custom On second thought, don't answer that. You'll just discourage me. Irritated InstM01IsaacSceneComplete

Scene SceneDialogue Custom Player Default: Does it really matter how smoothly it went? Being a member of the Institute means holding yourself to a higher standard. A stern lecture / Stern InstM01IsaacSceneComplete
Scene SceneDialogue Custom It means efficiency and diligence, attention to detail and an exacting thoroughness. A stern lecture / Stern InstM01IsaacSceneComplete

Scene SceneDialogue Custom Player Default: Just give me the seeds. Patience, man! Rushed work is shoddy work, and we do not do shoddy work here. Isaac: Now listen closely, because this next part is vitally important. Very annoyed, bordering on angry / Angry InstM01IsaacSceneIntro
Scene SceneDialogue Custom Player Default: Seeds for what? A melon plant that will, if my calculations are correct, be able to grow even in heavily irradiated soil. Confident InstM01IsaacSceneIntro

Scene SceneDialogue Custom When Roger asks how your trip was, tell him some Bloodbugs chased you halfway across the Commonwealth. Neutral InstM01IsaacSceneIntro
Scene SceneDialogue Custom That code phrase will identify you as an agent of the Institute. Neutral InstM01IsaacSceneIntro
Scene SceneDialogue Custom Also, you must be discrete! Do nothing to draw attention to yourself or raise suspicion. Player Default: I understand. Emphasize "must". Be insistent, urging caution, this is important. InstM01IsaacSceneIntro
Scene SceneDialogue Custom Player Default: A code phrase? What a joke. No, sir, it is no joke. You had better start taking our work more seriously if you intend to have a future here. Isaac: Now hurry on to Warwick Homestead so we can begin the experiment. Irritated InstM01IsaacSceneIntro
Scene SceneDialogue Custom Player Default: Maybe I should get a secret decoder ring, too. A secret decoder ring? What a fascinating suggestion. I'll have to look into that. Isaac: Now hurry on to Warwick Homestead so we can begin the experiment. Puzzled InstM01IsaacSceneIntro
Scene SceneDialogue Custom Player Default: And if your synth has been compromised? Then you'll have to improvise. You seem clever, I'm sure you'll manage. Isaac: Now hurry on to Warwick Homestead so we can begin the experiment. Condescending / Neutral InstM01IsaacSceneIntro

Scene SceneDialogue Custom Isaac: He's been field-testing a variety of genetically-modified seeds that I created. Take this packet of seeds to the Roger Warwick synth. InstM01IsaacSceneIntro

Miscellaneous Miscellaneous Hello Remember, use discretion! We don't want to blow our synth's cover.
Miscellaneous Miscellaneous Hello Warwick Homestead is on Nut island. Just look for the old waste treatment plant.
Miscellaneous Miscellaneous SharedInfo Bit of a blunt instrument, aren't you? Kellogg was much the same. Very well then, down to brass tacks. Surprised
Miscellaneous Miscellaneous SharedInfo *Sigh* How unsurprising. Depressed
Miscellaneous Miscellaneous SharedInfo No doubt Doctor Holdren preferred to boast about the importance of the BioScience division rather than tell you the details of my situation. Depressed
Miscellaneous Miscellaneous SharedInfo The man is useless, I tell you. Very well, I suppose it falls to me. Irritated
Miscellaneous Miscellaneous SharedInfo Frankly, I resent Doctor Holdren claiming that I "need help". There's a subtle insinuation there that I don't care for. Irritated
Miscellaneous Miscellaneous SharedInfo I simply require your services to make a delivery to one of our operatives on the surface.

Scene SceneDialogue Custom Have you had time to examine my latest reports on batch two-seven-four? Clayton: Not yet. I've been reviewing Father's plans to expand our operations at Warwick. DialogueInstituteClaytonIsaac1Scene
Scene SceneDialogue Custom Clayton: He's eager to get that going, so I've had to put everything else to one side. I wonder how the Warwick family is doing. Young Wally must be close to ten years old by now. DialogueInstituteClaytonIsaac1Scene
Scene SceneDialogue Custom It's remarkable that any child can survive for so long up there. Clayton: I... try not to think too much about it. We have more than enough to occupy ourselves here. DialogueInstituteClaytonIsaac1Scene
Scene SceneDialogue Custom Clayton: Those people are the last remnants of a dying past. It's best not to dwell on the subject. They're still people, and they're suffering. We can at least admit that it's regrettable. DialogueInstituteClaytonIsaac1Scene
Scene SceneDialogue Custom After all, how can we hope to redefine mankind if we can't even hold on to our own humanity? Clayton: Well, that's a question best left to our colleagues in the Robotics division. DialogueInstituteClaytonIsaac1Scene

Scene SceneDialogue Custom Clayton: Good man, good man. The compliment is quite unnecessary, Doctor Holdren. Snippy, annoyed DialogueInstituteHydroponics4Scene
Scene SceneDialogue Custom Clayton: Good man, good man. Thanking a man for doing his duty is like thanking a dog for barking. Snippy, annoyed DialogueInstituteHydroponics4Scene
Scene SceneDialogue Custom Doctor Volkert, one of my valeriana officinalis specimens is missing. Do you know anything about it? Dean: Doctor Li's been having trouble sleeping, so I used it to make a remedy. Annoyed, confrontational... you assume Volkert's guilty DialogueInstituteHydroponics3Scene
Scene SceneDialogue Custom One of the ginger plants is gone. Was this another of your medical emergencies? Dean: Doctor Li's been having trouble sleeping, so I used it to make a remedy. Annoyed, even petulant DialogueInstituteHydroponics3Scene
Scene SceneDialogue Custom Dean: Doctor Li's been having trouble sleeping, so I used it to make a remedy. You had no right! Dean: Save it, Isaac. You know I have full access to the garden when it comes to medicinal matters. Haughty, annoyed, how dare you DialogueInstituteHydroponics3Scene
Scene SceneDialogue Custom Dean: Doctor Li's been having trouble sleeping, so I used it to make a remedy. This is unacceptable. I had plans for that root! Dean: Save it, Isaac.

Interested / Neutral DialogueInstituteHydroponicsScene5
Scene SceneDialogue Custom InstituteScientist: The specimens are showing an abnormal growth rate. They were designed to thrive in a radiated environment, but we didn't expect these results.
