  1. Danse: "Well, that could have gone smoother, but mission accomplished."
    The Sole Survivor: "Smoother? I thought we did fine."
    Danse: "That sweep was sloppy. We were caught unprepared more than once, which is unacceptable. However, your extra gun gave us the edge we needed. I'm not certain I could have accomplished the mission alone."
    The Sole Survivor: "I thought we worked well as a team."
    Danse: "Agreed. It's a refreshing change to work with a civilian who can follow orders properly. That being said, you're about to get to know the Prydwen up close and personal. First and foremost, if you'll hand me the Deep Range Transmitter, I'd like to compensate you for your assistance during this operation. I think you'll find this weapon useful. It's my own personal modification of the standard Brotherhood Laser Rifle. May it serve you well in battle."
    (Danse's dialogue)
