QUEST CATEGORY TOPIC TOPIC TEXT PROMPT RESPONSE TEXT FILENAME NOTES
Topic GREETING GREETING A pleasure to meet you! I'm Dr. Thomas Hildern, Director of Operations, OSI East. I presume you're here about Vault 22? VFreeformVault22_GREETING_000EED38_1 Very professional, smooth
Topic GREETING GREETING We spoke earlier, didn't we? About Vault 22. My offer still stands, if you've changed your mind. VFreeformVault22_GREETING_000F0A56_1
Topic GREETING GREETING We still need a contractor on our Vault 22 project. Interested? VFreeformVault22_GREETING_000F1805_1
Topic GREETING GREETING Yes? Something else you needed? VFreeformVault22_GREETING_000EFA55_1
Topic GREETING GREETING I received a pleasant call from Dr. Keely. It seems we have you to thank for keeping her alive. Very charitable of you. VFreeformVault22_GREETING_000F3700_1 He's not at all happy that Keely is alive
Topic GREETING GREETING Ah! I was just wondering what had become of you. VFreeformVault22_GREETING_000EFA56_1
Topic GREETING GREETING What do you want? I thought I told you to stay the hell out of here. VFreeformVault22_GREETING_000F28E7_1
Topic GREETING GREETING What are you doing in my office? You're not welcome here, get out! VFreeformVault22_GREETING_000F1836_1
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic003 What do you think of NCR's chances against the Legion? To be frank, I have no idea. I leave the fighting to Colonel Hsu, and I expect him to leave the science to me. VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_000F180B_1 Hsu = "shoe"
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic003 What do you think of NCR's chances against the Legion? Too many people have opinions on things they know nothing about. And the more ignorant they are, the more opinions they have. VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_000F180B_2
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic004 Keely wiped the data. It's gone. Keely. Again. Do you... do you understand what that rotting old bitch has done?! Thousands of people, mass starvation. We had a chance to avoid that. VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_000F1838_2 absolutely furious
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic004 Keely wiped the data. It's gone. And I had a chance to prove that scientists could be more than a bunch of useless idealists. But Keely doesn't give a goddamn about that, does she? VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_000F1838_1 absolutely furious
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic004 Keely wiped the data. It's gone. You're an accomplice in this. Keely is one old woman - you could have easily stopped her. You're either incompetent, or you were on her side. VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_000F1839_1 turning his fury on the player
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic004 Keely wiped the data. It's gone. Now get out of this office. Get out! VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_000F183A_1 furious, throwing the player out
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic007 No. "Civilized" people stack the deck in their own favor, don't they? If you're unhappy with the terms of our agreement, then consider this an object lesson. VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_000F17FA_1 fake friendliness
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic007 No. "Civilized" people stack the deck in their own favor, don't they? In the future, I'm sure you'll consider your agreements and contracts more carefully. Now, here is the sum we agreed to. VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_000F17FA_2
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic008 Goodbye. Best of luck to you. Not that you'll need it. You seem like a reasonably competent person... VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_000F17CD_1 going back to his work, not even looking at the player anymore
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic009 Why terminate her contract? Williams has a tendency to feel before she thinks. Not in the lab. But everywhere else. VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_000F17DE_4
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic009 Why terminate her contract? That might be forgivable if she kept her concerns to herself. But she doesn't. Not in front of her peers, not even with contractors like yourself. VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_000F17DE_1
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic009 Why terminate her contract? That kind of behavior can undermine morale. She convinced my last contractor to quit. Same way she tried with you. VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_000F17DE_2
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic009 Why terminate her contract? Probably didn't tell you that, did she? VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_000F17DE_3
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic010 You didn't always work for the OSI? No, I... no. The OSI hasn't been around for very long. I received my training elsewhere. VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_000F17E4_1 reluctant to discuss his former comrades
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic011 So who *did* train you? Before the bombs, I might have studied at any number of colleges, universities. They gave a man a chance to advance himself... or so I've heard. VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_000F17CE_1
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic011 So who *did* train you? But after the bombs - until a few years ago - anyone with half a brain had one choice. The Followers of the Apocalypse. VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_000F17CE_2
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic011 So who *did* train you? Didn't matter if you agreed with them or not. You either played along or you were turned away. VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_000F17CE_3
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic012 And what do the Followers believe? Knowledge for knowledge sake. A society of equals. They purport to be intelligent people, and then they spout this old-world dogma. VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_000F17D5_1
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic013 Doesn't sound like a good place for a person of ambition. [SUCCEEDED] Exactly right. Imagine what the Followers could have accomplished if they were properly motivated... if they had a unified purpose! VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_000F17FE_1 the player has said something he agrees with - now he's confiding in player
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic013 Doesn't sound like a good place for a person of ambition. Those of us who founded the OSI... we wanted to put our knowledge to work. And we have, to some degree. VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_000F17FE_2 confiding in player
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic013 Doesn't sound like a good place for a person of ambition. But the execs at OSI Central... they're still bound to the old ideas. Society of equals, and all that. There's still too little direction. VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_000F17FE_3 confiding in player
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic013 Doesn't sound like a good place for a person of ambition. If I can make real breakthroughs here... show the President what can be done when junior researchers are kept in line... kept focused on task... VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_000F17FE_4 confiding in player
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic013 Doesn't sound like a good place for a person of ambition. Who knows. Maybe I'll be sitting in OSI Central, in a few years time. And there'll be no more coddling of "free spirits" like our friend, Williams. VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_000F17FE_5 confiding in player - a little conspiratorial
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic014 So... you wanted something more? [FAILED] That was years ago. No point in discussing it. We have more practical concerns... and more important things to talk about. VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_000F17C7_1 dismissive - player said the wrong thing
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic016 The Vault 22 data is gone. Destroyed. Destroyed. Really. I find that hard to believe. More likely, you failed to locate the proper server. VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_000F180C_1 Keeping his cool, doesn't believe the playerSCRIPTER: Player should lose NCR reputation points here
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic017 Actually, I have an invoice for you from Alice McLafferty. From Alice? I'll see that she's paid right away. VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_000F28E4_1
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic017 Actually, I have an invoice for you from Alice McLafferty. Crimson Caravan runs a tight operation, even out here in the waste. Wouldn't do to keep them waiting. VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_000F28E4_2
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic017 Actually, I have an invoice for you from Alice McLafferty. Was there anything else? Or were you just here about the invoice? VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_000F28E5_1
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic017 Actually, I have an invoice for you from Alice McLafferty. Was there anything else? Or were you just here about the invoice? VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_000F28E6_1—VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_000F28E5_1
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic018 The plants in that vault were dangerous. We destroyed the data. We? We?! You were a part of this? After we made an explicit agreement, you have the fucking gall to destroy priceless scientific data? VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_000F1835_2 absolutely furious
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic018 The plants in that vault were dangerous. We destroyed the data. The authorities are going to hear about this. They're going to know your name, they're going to know your goddamn face. VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_000F1835_1 absolutely furious, threatening the player
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic019 Believe whatever you want. It's the truth. Keely. It was Keely, wasn't it? Who else would fail to give a fuck that thousands of people are going to starve, without that data? VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_000F1837_2 furious
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic019 Believe whatever you want. It's the truth. And for what? So Keely can wage her selfish little war against me and the OSI. VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_000F1837_1 absolutely furious and bitter
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic022 I have an invoice for you from Alice McLafferty. From Alice? I'll see that she's paid right away. VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_000F28E9_3
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic022 I have an invoice for you from Alice McLafferty. Crimson Caravan runs a tight operation, even out here in the waste. Wouldn't do to keep them waiting. VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_000F28E9_1
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic022 I have an invoice for you from Alice McLafferty. Was there anything else? Or were you just here about the invoice? VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_000F28E9_2
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic023 Then you don't want this invoice from Alice McLafferty? Fine. I'll see that she's paid. Crimson Caravan always fulfils their contractual obligations to the letter. VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_000F28E1_2 cold. This is also a veiled attack on the player, who didn't see through his "contractual obligations."
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic023 Then you don't want this invoice from Alice McLafferty? Now I assume there's nothing more, so I trust you can see yourself to the door. VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_000F28E1_1 very cold
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic024 What other responsibilities does this office have? We aid some programs the Republic has sponsored involving sharecropper farms in the area, but those haven't panned out too well from what I hear. VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_0015837D_1
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic024 What other responsibilities does this office have? There've been complaints about the amount of water we're supplying, but those are just excuses for lack of diligence, I'm sure. VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_0015837D_2
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic024 What other responsibilities does this office have? We aid some programs the Republic has sponsored involving sharecropper farms in the area, which seem to be coming along nicely. VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_0015837E_1
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic024 What other responsibilities does this office have? There was some sort of trouble involving the water supply recently, but it sorted itself out, as these things often do. VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_0015837E_2
Topic VFreeformVault22ThomasHildernTopic025 Goodbye. Dammit. Now you've made me forget what I was doing... VFreeformV_VFreeformVault2_000F28E2_1 irritated with player for interrupting him
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic000 <Lie> Yes, that's right. Wonderful! Straight to it, then. Have you signed the release forms? No? Doesn't matter - we'll keep that to ourselves. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EED37_1
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic000 <Lie> Yes, that's right. Vault 22... where to begin... VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EEECB_1 This is pure showmanship and a practiced speech - he knows exactly where to begin
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic001 No, this is the first I've heard about Vault 22. No, they wouldn't have briefed you, would they? Probably better that our junior fellows stay within the bounds of their pay grade, anyway. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EED36_1
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic002 Goodbye. Wrong turn? Happens all the time. Do they give me a secretary? Of course not. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EED35_1
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic003 I'd be careful with that data. You didn't see those plants in the Vault. Your concerns are perfectly understandable, but I assure you, they're entirely misplaced. We would never use a technology that wasn't fully tested. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EFA4F_1
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic003 I'd be careful with that data. You didn't see those plants in the Vault. We aren't some motley band of Vault alchemists. We're with the government, for goodness sake. Have a little faith in us! VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EFA4F_2 Big reassuring smile
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic004 BUGGED LINE BELOW [FAILED] If you are unhappy with the terms of our agreement, then consider this an object lesson. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EFB21_1 condescending
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic004 BUGGED LINE BELOW In the future, I'm sure you'll consider your agreements and contracts more carefully. Now, here is the sum we agreed to. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EFB21_2
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic004 BUGGED LINE BELOW Of course, we're very grateful for your efforts, and I'll make certain that you're credited in our final report. Good day to you. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EFB22_1 He's full of crap
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic005 Depends. How much are you paying? Ha ha! A mercenary, is that it? You won't be disappointed, I promise you. The Office of Science and Industry provides highly competitive benefits. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EEEC5_4
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic005 Depends. How much are you paying? And as an external contractor, your pay would be... rather more competitive than those of our regular employees. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EEEC5_1 lowers voice - fake conspiratorial tone
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic005 Depends. How much are you paying? But we should keep that to ourselves, don't you think? VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EEEC5_2 slimy wink
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic005 Depends. How much are you paying? So... how about I tell you what we need, and then you can tell me whether you're up to it? No pressure, of course. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EEEC5_3
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic006 This all sounds a little hard to believe. Skepticism can be forgiven. But I think you'll come around... if the reports I've heard are true. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EFA45_1
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic007 This doesn't sound like my kind of job. I'm very sorry to hear that. If you should change your mind, the offer will stand. As will the substantial reward... VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EFA51_1 Emphasis on the reward - he's still trying to entice the player
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic008 I'll think about it, and maybe I'll be back. Naturally! Take all the time you need. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EEEC7_2 very smooth
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic008 I'll think about it, and maybe I'll be back. I assure you, the OSI places considerable value upon our contractors. We will take good care of you, should you decide to accept our offer. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EEEC7_1 He is completely full of shit.
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic009 Forget it. I don't have time for this. Of course not! You're obviously a busy man. But if life should... quiet down a bit... I'm certain we can find a place for you here. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EEED2_1 Big fake smile at the end
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic009 Forget it. I don't have time for this. Of course not! I can see you're a woman of consequence. But if life should... quiet down a bit... I'm certain we can find a place for you here. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EEED3_1 Big fake smile at the end
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic010 I'm listening. Imagine, if you will, the wasteland in bloom... vast fields of corn that grow from seeds and produce their bounty in the space of a month... VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EEEC8_1 His elevator pitch
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic010 I'm listening. ...orchards of trees, their branches weighed halfway to the ground, hung with fat, ripe oranges. A harvest that could feed a city... or a nation. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EEEC8_2 More elevator pitch
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic010 I'm listening. And all this... all this... requiring no more than a few of drops of precious water, and the efforts of only a handful of human farmers. Impossible? VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EEEC8_3 More elevator pitch
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic011 Save the sales pitch. Just tell me what you want me to do. All right. Straight to the point. I believe that the inhabitants of Vault 22 unlocked the secrets of vegetative growth. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EEED4_1
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic011 Save the sales pitch. Just tell me what you want me to do. Plants are spilling from their gate. No one tends them. No one waters them. Yet they multiply and spread in all directions. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EEED5_1
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic011 Save the sales pitch. Just tell me what you want me to do. Find the reason for this miraculous growth, and I promise you, the OSI will see that you are generously compensated. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EEED5_2
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic012 Yes, I'd say so. A realist. We have that in common. A year ago, I'd have said the same. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EEECD_3 playing politics with the player
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic012 Yes, I'd say so. But what if I was to tell you that the wasteland can yield an endless bounty, and that the secret may lie a mere few miles from where we stand... VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EEECD_1
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic012 Yes, I'd say so. We need only reach out and take it. And for that, I need you. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EEECD_2
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic013 Nothing is impossible. Precisely. Science has proven that truth a thousand times over, but how many wasteland savages believe it? Present company excepted, of course. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EEED0_3
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic013 Nothing is impossible. The bounty I described to you is no idle fantasy. It exists, in primitive form, only a few miles from where we stand. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EEED0_1
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic013 Nothing is impossible. We need only reach out and unlock its secret. For that, the OSI needs you. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EEED0_2
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic014 Get to the point. Fair enough. My point is this. I believe that the inhabitants of Vault 22 unlocked the secrets of vegetative growth. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EEEC6_1
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic015 All right. I'll do it. Good. No need to check in with the NCR authorities, I can authorize your payment from OSI accounts. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EEEC4_3 abruptly turns off sales pitch (and the smile) - now he's all business, sealing the deal
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic015 All right. I'll do it. Vaults typically contain a server room on a lower level, where they would have backed up their research data. A computer room, you understand? VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EEEC4_1 a little condescending on the last sentence
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic015 All right. I'll do it. Download all the information on the central server to your Pip-Boy. And you'll be certain to bring me any notes or samples that you find, won't you? VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EEEC4_2
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic016 I'll think about it. Very well. I hope you'll consider this an open offer from the OSI. Now, I'm sure your time is valuable, so unless there was anything else... VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EEED6_1
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic017 Goodbye. Yes... goodbye. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EFA48_1 Dismissing the player, turning back to his work
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic018 Tell me more about the OSI. The Office of Science and Industry. That's a rather expansive topic. I could talk for hours, but I'm sure I'd bore you. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EFA41_1
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic018 Tell me more about the OSI. Suffice to say, we are the leading edge of the NCR. Our work focuses on practical matters. Medicine, engineering, biology. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EFA41_2
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic018 Tell me more about the OSI. The Dam, for instance. OSI routes its energy supply to our cities in the west. That's only one responsibility of this office. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EFA41_3
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic019 Anything else I should know? I thought it was a fairly straightforward assignment. It's a simple question of retrieving the data, which shouldn't prove overly challenging. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EEECC_2 fake smile
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic019 Anything else I should know? Downloading the data will be handled by your Pip-Boy. You might think of yourself as a mere means of conveyance. No insult intended, of course. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EEECC_1 Insult *is* intended, though he's smiling condescendingly
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic020 Actually, I had some other questions. Oh? What might those be? VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EEECF_1
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic024 Tell me more. Good! I thought I sensed a kindred soul in you, beneath the wasteland veneer. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EEEC9_1 His sales pitch worked, but he can't help subtly insulting the player at the end
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic025 Scientific discovery is never so simple as that. Isn't it? One directs one's efforts - or the efforts of others - toward a goal, and progress is made. It's a matter of incentives, nothing more. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EEED1_1 He's disagreeing with the player
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic027 What do you need me to do? I believe that the inhabitants of Vault 22 unlocked the secrets of vegetative growth. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EEECA_1
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic028 Well... consider it a down payment on future service. [FAILED] No, I'm sure I won't require your services in the future. The OSI does not enter into long-term arrangements with its contractors. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EFB20_1
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic028 Well... consider it a down payment on future service. Of course, we're all very grateful for your efforts, and I'll make certain that you're credited in our final report. Good day to you. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000F17E2_1
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic030 I've brought the data from Vault 22. Wonderful! Excellent work! Let me see it... it'll take a moment to decode on my terminal... VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EFA57_1 Surprised that the player actually succeeded
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic031 Never mind. I'll be back later. You won't keep me in suspense for long, I hope? Of course I can't authorize any payments until I have the data in hand... VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EFA4D_1
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic032 No problem. I can wait. I think... Williams' decryption algorithms seem to be working... VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EFA42_1 Williams is a character's last name
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic032 No problem. I can wait. Yes... here it is! The data is mostly uncorrupted. This will make the board of directors finally sit up and take notice... VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EFA42_2 big personal victory
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic032 No problem. I can wait. Here, then... as promised. An agreeable sum, payable upon delivery of the data. You've more than done your part. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EFA42_3
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic033 By the way... you never warned me about the dangers in that place. Didn't I? Did you encounter undue difficulties? Clearly not, or you wouldn't be standing here, would you? VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EFA44_2
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic033 By the way... you never warned me about the dangers in that place. All that matters is whether the data is intact... VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EFA44_1
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic038 Fine. Just give me my reward. I knew you were a reasonable person. Here you are... our agreed-upon sum. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EFA4A_1
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic041 Glad to be of service. A pleasure working with you, really! I'll make certain that you're mentioned in the final report, you have my word on it. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EFA53_1 He's totally lying.
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic042 I agree, I've more than done my part. You owe me more caps. You want to renegotiate your contract. Mm. This is a very serious matter, you do understand that, don't you? VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EFA43_2 condescending
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic042 I agree, I've more than done my part. You owe me more caps. I realize that one's word counts for little in the wasteland, but amongst civilized people, one doesn't just... demand more than one has agreed to. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EFA43_1 really condescending
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic043 Make it fast. I want my caps. If the data's intact, you'll get your reward. I gave my word. I'm not the kind of wasteland savage you're used to dealing with. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000F0A52_1 slightly contemptuous
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic044 Damn right. No thanks to you. I'm sorry you feel that way. But we both came out ahead, so... no harm done, I hope. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000F0A55_1 fake friendliness
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic045 All right. Then I'll sell this data to some other interested party... [SUCCEEDED] Now... wait a minute... VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EFA54_1 Getting nervous
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic046 What contract? You cut an under-the-table deal with me. [SUCCEEDED] You're saying that I didn't file the proper paperwork, is that it? I suppose you're an expert on NCR procedures? VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000EFA4E_1
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic049 I'm not the first person you've sent to Vault 22... am I? I never said you were. You've been speaking to Williams, haven't you? VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000F08E5_1 The player is confronting him on a sensitive issue, and he's keeping a poker face.
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic050 By the way, that Vault was just as dangerous as Williams thought. I don't see how that's relevant. The dangers of the Vault were your business, not mine. The only question is whether the data is still intact. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000F0A53_1 dismissive
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic050 By the way, that Vault was just as dangerous as Williams thought. Was it? I'm sure I made it very clear... the hazards of the job were your business, not mine. The important question is whether this data is intact. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000F0A54_1
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic052 I'm the one asking the questions, Dr. Hildern. Fair enough. Begging your pardon, but this is beginning to feel like an interrogation. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000F08E7_1 overly polite
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic053 <Lie> No, Williams didn't tell me anything. All right. I'll take you at your word. Williams didn't say anything at all, you just came to this conclusion on your own. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000F08E3_1 not obviously sarcastic - should sound like he's trying to be reasonable
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic056 Yes, I have. What difference does it make? None at all. Informed speculation on my part. Williams is very good at her job, so it remains secure... despite her best efforts. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000F08E9_1
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic056 Yes, I have. What difference does it make? No, you aren't the first person I've sent to the Vault. I'm sorry that I neglected to tell you, but I don't see how it makes any difference. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000F08EA_1
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic058 What's your opinion of Williams? Williams is an admirable researcher. If she wasn't, I'd have terminated her contract, and she'd be begging for work from my former employers. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000F180A_1
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic059 You're doing all these things yourself? Yes. With the assistance of my team, of course. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000F08E4_1 taking credit for other people's work
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic060 NCR has a food shortage? Not yet. But our government understands the value of proactive thought. Our studies project an imbalance between production and consumption. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000F08DF_2
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic060 NCR has a food shortage? Or, for a layman such as yourself - not enough food, too many mouths to feed. Mass starvation. In a decade or so. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000F08DF_1 condescending
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic062 Do you control the Dam from here? Directly? No. But we attempt to maximize its output. You have no idea how difficult it is to provide power to an entire nation. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000F08F0_1
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic062 Do you control the Dam from here? Fortunately, we also have the HELIOS One facility. One of our external contractors recently got the station up and running. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000F18FE_1

Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic062 Do you control the Dam from here? We were starting to bring the HELIOS One facility online, as well. That might have increased our power output by half. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000F08F3_3
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic062 Do you control the Dam from here? But some wasteland scum managed to sabotage the array. Probably got quite a laugh at our expense. Very funny indeed. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000F08F3_1
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic062 Do you control the Dam from here? I'd pay a year's salary for a crack at that maniac. Not that he'd ever show his face in a place like this. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000F08F3_2

Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic062 Do you control the Dam from here? Our efforts at HELIOS One held a great deal of promise, until some drifter blew in from the waste and managed to reroute the power. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000F1900_2
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic062 Do you control the Dam from here? As to where the power is going... who knows. Can you imagine? A drifter outsmarting professional scientists? Only in New Vegas. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000F1900_1 shaking his head at end
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic062 Do you control the Dam from here? We'd hoped that HELIOS One would boost power to McCarran and Vegas. Then some damned crusader routed all the power to Freeside. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000F1901_1
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic062 Do you control the Dam from here? I also have high hopes for our HELIOS One facility. Unfortunately, I can't say the same for the two "scientists" who are working there. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000F08F2_2
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic062 Do you control the Dam from here? So far, they've only managed to achieve one percent power output. I'd send help, if I could spare the personnel. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000F08F2_1
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic062 Do you control the Dam from here? His name was something like... "Exceptional" or "Marvelous" or... VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000F08F1_1
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic062 Do you control the Dam from here? That's the trouble with this wasteland - too many damned variables. No one can account for them all. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000F1902_1
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic063 Fantastic. Yes! That was it, exactly. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000F08E0_1
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic064 No, that was me. I fixed HELIOS One. I... see. Of course you did. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000F08EB_1 doesn't believe the player, but humoring him.
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic065 How many others have you sent to the Vault? I'd have to consult my records. Eight? Ten? Your point is what? VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000F08E6_1 nonchalant
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic066 I prefer to know what I'm getting myself into. You want certainty? You'll never find it... especially not in the pursuit of science. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000F08E2_1
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic067 Maybe I should cancel our deal. Do whatever you think is best. You're under no obligations. If you want the caps, you'll complete the job. Simple. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000F08EC_1 trying to sound very reasonable
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic067 Maybe I should cancel our deal. Take my advice. Forget about Williams. She's a talented researcher, but she doesn't understand people, and she can't see the big picture. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000F08ED_1 fake encouragement
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic067 Maybe I should cancel our deal. Now, I know your time is valuable, so I won't waste any more of it. Feel free to show yourself out... VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000F08EE_1
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic068 I want double the caps. Or I spread the word that you're full of shit. [SUCCEEDED] All right. I'll admit that it's been difficult to find anyone willing to enter the Vault. And I'd rather get the data sooner than later. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000F08F5_2
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic068 I want double the caps. Or I spread the word that you're full of shit. You have a deal. I'll double your reward, if you bring me the data. But this is as high as my budget will allow. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000F08F5_1
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic071 It doesn't trouble you that you sent eight or ten people to their deaths? I have no evidence that they're dead. A thousand things could have happened between here and the Vault. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000F08E8_2
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic071 It doesn't trouble you that you sent eight or ten people to their deaths? They could have changed their minds and walked away. I wouldn't be much of a scientist if I leapt to conclusions without proof. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000F08E8_1
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic072 Then you broke our agreement. I want double the caps. [FAILED] No. Our agreement was very specific. You bring me the data, I give you a reward. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000F08EF_2
Topic VMS06ThomasHildernTopic072 Then you broke our agreement. I want double the caps. We never discussed the dangers. That's your business, not mine. If you can't provide the data, I'm sure I'll find someone who can. VFreeformV_VMS06ThomasHild_000F08EF_1
Topic VMS06Topic000 ...and make sure you have some healthy competition. There's... there's no need to do anything rash. Naturally, OSI would be willing to negotiate for exclusive rights to that data. VFreeformV_VMS06Topic000_000EFA4B_1 Recomposing himself
Topic VMS06Topic000 ...and make sure you have some healthy competition. Here. Take these caps. That's all of my contracting budget, and it's yours. VFreeformV_VMS06Topic000_000EFA4C_2 basically bribing the player
Topic VMS06Topic000 ...and make sure you have some healthy competition. Now, I've... got to get back to work. I'm sure you understand. Exit's over there, you can show yourself out. VFreeformV_VMS06Topic000_000EFA4C_1
Topic VMS06Topic001 You said you were the Director of OSI? Director of the entire OSI? Me? If I didn't know better, I'd say you were trying to plant seditious ideas in my head. Ha ha ha. VFreeformV_VMS06Topic001_000EFA47_3
Topic VMS06Topic001 You said you were the Director of OSI? No, I direct our eastern operations. I've been responsible for squeezing unprecedented levels of power from the Dam. VFreeformV_VMS06Topic001_000EFA47_1
Topic VMS06Topic001 You said you were the Director of OSI? I'm also confronting the problem of food production, in what little spare time I have. But I've found some promising leads. VFreeformV_VMS06Topic001_000EFA47_2
Topic VMS06Topic002 Then it wouldn't matter if I mentioned our deal to the colonel? All right. Fair enough. No need to bring the military into this matter - it's between the two of us, after all. VFreeformV_VMS06Topic002_000EFA40_1 He's scared, trying to hide it
