'''Moya Jones''': (''phone'') See that old train? The Reapers have some people locked up in it, collateral to keep the people of the Neon in line. More importantly, there's a chance John is locked in there.
'''Cole MacGrath''': Want me to bust them out?
'''Moya Jones''': (''phone'') No. You're in the heart of Reaper territory, and they'll kill anyone trying to escape. You need to move the train to a safe location.
'''Cole MacGrath''': How am I supposed to do that? Push?
'''Moya Jones''': (''phone'') You're a living third rail — stay in contact with the lead car and it should move.
(Once Cole gets the train moving)

Trophy SpinOff
I thought I'd finished it.
This page needs to be expanded in order to include more relevant information.

This page comprises the full verbal transcript of Infamous.


  • Story missions are ordered according to the save screen seen in-game. They do not, however, have to be completed in that specific order.
  • Lines might not be copied verbatim from subtitles, as subtitles often have errors in capitalization, punctuation, or spelling. Instead, they are transcribed according to rules of standard American English. This should have no effect on the meaning of the lines.

Story missions


Unknown voice: Activation +6 minutes. Pulse is 45. Respiration 10. Lookin' good, Cole.

(Cole is seen waking up from unconsciousness.)

Cole MacGrath: The hell happened?

(Wakes up and sees the destruction around him)

Cole MacGrath: Oh god.

Helicopter Pilot: There's someone alive down there.

Helicopter Pilot (shouting to Cole): Hey, wake up and get to the area. If you can walk, get out of there. Head for the bridge.

(The pilot turns towards the parking garage.)

Helicopter Pilot: Hey you, in the garage! Get the hell out of there! The whole thing is coming down!

Cole MacGrath (to himself): Come on, Cole, move, move.

Zeke Dunbar (phone): Cole, Cole, man. You there? C'mon, man, pick up!

Cole MacGrath: Z-Zeke? What the hell is going on? I think there was an explosion.

Zeke Dunbar (phone): No shit there was an explosion! TV says terrorist are blowing stuff up all over the city. Meet me at the Fremont Bridge. We'll get Trish and find someplace to hunker down.

Cole MacGrath: I'll see you there.

(Cole enters the garage and drains electricity from a nearby power source.)

Cole MacGrath: Ugh.

Cole MacGrath: What the hell - should be dead.

(A car crashes through the ceiling.)

Cole MacGrath: Oh, man.

(Cole drains more electricity, causing damage around him.)

Cole MacGrath: Whoa!

Cole MacGrath: What's happening to me?

(After the player exits the parking garage)

Helicopter Pilot: If you're able to walk, please evacuate across the bridge to the Neon. Remain calm. Emergency personnel are en route.

Zeke Dunbar: Cole! Over here, man! We gotta go!

(Another electrical shock occurs.)

Cole MacGrath: God, no!

Cole MacGrath: No, no!

(As Cole begins to cross the bridge)

Zeke Dunbar: Oh no, it's the terrorists! Run for the bridge, Cole! C'mon! Move it!

Zeke Dunbar: Move your ass, Cole! This whole bridge is comin' down!

Trish Dailey (echo): Cole!

Civilization Committing Suicide

Cole MacGrath (narrating): While sliding through the unconsciousness, I could somehow, I don't know... hear the voice of the dying, thousands crushed by falling buildings, or burned alive in the fires. Trish lost her sister, almost lost me. Zeke was always there, somehow sure that I'd wake up. While outside, the city fell apart. A plague struck, followed by rioting, theft, rapes, civilization committing suicide. In a bullshit attempt to contain the biological threat, the federal government locked down all access in and out of the city. Now we're stuck in this cage with the psychos. Cops are all but gone off the streets, either dead or too chickenshit to stand against the gangs that control things now. Outside, things were bad... but inside — inside me — something was beginning. Scary as hell at first. Gotta understand there was no one to talk to, no experts to consult, but with time, I'm learning to control it, master it. Just hope it's not too late...


Empire City. Day 14 of the Quarantine.

Cole MacGrath: I thought you were going to watch TV?

Zeke Dunbar: Batteries are dead again... you mind puttin' on the freak show?

Cole MacGrath: Sure. Glad it's good for something.

Zeke Dunbar: Probably need to charge 'em all — TV's a hog.

(When the player begins firing at the batteries)

Zeke Dunbar: Whoo! That's what I'm talking about!

Zeke Dunbar: Whoo-hoo! Nice job, man, boob tube's workin'.

Cole MacGrath: Weird — feels like I got more power.

Zeke Dunbar: Yeah? Try fryin' those dummies over there. With all the nut-balls runnin' around, it'd be nice to see how much juice you're packin'.

(When the player begins firing at the dummies)

Zeke Dunbar: Yeah! Lay into it, fry those suckers!

Zeke Dunbar: Yeah! Whooo-hooo!

(A planes flies overhead.)

Zeke Dunbar: Whoo, you see that? Flyin' so low, thought it was going to crash into us!

Zeke Dunbar: Hey, it's the TV jacker. I love this guy!

Voice of Survival (TV screen): Just got word that the feds dropped some relief packages into Archer Square. The liars (static) corporate media tell us that we're gonna get our fair share? That more is comin'? Yeah, that's easy for them to say. They're not the ones living in this hellhole! And the truth is that we've been abandoned, and no one's coming to save us. So head over to Archer Square and get that food before the Reapers show up. Voice of Survival out.

First Glimpse

Cole MacGrath: Told you they'd drop food.

Zeke Dunbar: Man, you must be outta your mind. You think any of those pencil-necks gives a crap about us? This is a PR stunt.

Cole MacGrath: That isn't going to stop you from pigging out, though, is it?

Zeke Dunbar: Hell no it ain't. Zeke's gotta eat!

Cole MacGrath: You take the stairs, I'm using the express elevator.

Zeke Dunbar: Man, you get to have all the fun.

(After the player jumps down from the roof)

Cole MacGrath: That's what I'm talking about!

Zeke Dunbar: Whoo, that was one hell of a jump, man. Wish I could do something like that — runnin' down all those stairs, that sucks donkey balls.

Zeke Dunbar: Hey Cole, before we head over to Archer, I need to go pick up a new six shooter.

Cole MacGrath: Here we go...

Zeke Dunbar: Nah, that was bad-ass. The second you touched it, the electricity in your hands cooks off the gun powder and the whole thing goes KA-BAM! (laughs) The look on your face was priceless.

Cole MacGrath: Damn near blew my hand off.

Zeke Dunbar: Which is why you won't be touching the new one. Traded this guy one of my home-made batteries for it.

Cole MacGrath: The ones that explode when you use 'em?

Zeke Dunbar: Hell, he doesn't know that. C'mon, told me he was going to leave the gun in a parking lot a few blocks from here.

Zeke Dunbar: Hey Cole, you what I miss? Pizza. A big, sloppy slice drippin' with grease and pepperoni. And payday. Havin' a big, fat wad of bills in your pocket.

Cole MacGrath: I'd settle for some hot water.

Zeke Dunbar: Hey, remember that time we were comin' home from Duffy's and I had to take a leak? And that bike cop was yelling at me to put up my hands? (laughs)

Cole MacGrath: You pissed all over him.

Zeke Dunbar: He told me to put up my hands! While he's fumblin' around, I jump back in and we take off. (laughs) Awesome!

Cole MacGrath: Yeah, awesome. Until we run into a wall of cops.

Zeke Dunbar: Like I said, awesome! (laughs) Bummer we won't be able to do anything like that again.

Cole MacGrath: Not unless some genius invents a car that doesn't explode when I sit in it.

(Once they reach the parking lot)

Zeke Dunbar: Ah c'mon... he told me he was going to leave it under a car, I figured there'd be only one. We'll never find it.

Cole MacGrath: Stand back, I got an idea.

(After Cole pushes the cars away)

Zeke Dunbar: Hellacious! Hell, I didn't know you could do somethin' like that.

Cole MacGrath: Me neither... there was this surge...

Zeke Dunbar: Hey man, you don't look so hot.

Cole MacGrath: Drained all of a sudden... hang on a sec...

(After the player drains electricity)

Cole MacGrath: Did you see that?

Zeke Dunbar: Man, you're a walking battery! Must have to recharge whenever you fire off a bunch of juice.

Cole MacGrath: I can feel the electricity surging through me, almost like I'm being healed by it.

Zeke Dunbar: This rocks so hard. C'mon, let's haul tail over to Archer Square 'fore someone takes all the brewskis.

Trish Dailey (phone): Cole, you there?

Cole MacGrath: Hey, babe.

Trish Dailey (phone): You hear the dropped some food?

Cole MacGrath: Yeah. Zeke and me are heading over there.

Trish Dailey (phone): How are you feeling?

Cole MacGrath: All right, I guess. Powers are all over the place. Used to be I could barely power a light bulb, now I'm jumping off of buildings and frying the junk on Zeke's roof.

Trish Dailey (phone): You jumped off a building? What were you thinking?

Cole MacGrath: Relax, I'm fine.

Trish Dailey (phone): Just take it easy. After what happened to Amy, I couldn't...

Cole MacGrath: Yeah.

Trish Dailey (phone): See you guys at Archer Square. I love you.

Cole MacGrath: You too.

(Upon reaching Archer Square)

Zeke Dunbar: Whew, boy that's stuck up there. I hate to say it pal, but you're the only guy here who'd live from a fall like that. You gotta climb up there and knock that stuff free.

Zeke Dunbar (phone): Get up there, Cole! Reapers'll be here any minute!

Zeke Dunbar (phone): Stop screwin' around! Get that food down!

(After Cole gets the food crate down)

Zeke Dunbar: Yeah! We are eatin'!

Cole MacGrath: Damn, too late.

First Glimpse

Cole MacGrath (narrating): That's when I caught my first sight... the Reapers. Before the blast, they were just a bunch of junkies dealing drugs. Now they own the Neon District... taking whatever they want. That changes today.

Gameplay (continued)

(The Reapers begin attacking.)

Zeke Dunbar (phone): Dang, those freaks are brutal.

Zeke Dunbar (phone): Well, there's more on the way!

Zeke Dunbar (phone): Woohoo, well that's the last of them. It's chow time!

Karmic moment

Cole MacGrath (thinking): Lot of food here. Enough the feed the three of us for weeks. Maybe longer. Bet if I fry a couple people in the crowd, the rest will run away. The food will be all ours, but some of these guys might starve...

Good karma dialogue

Unnamed civilian #1: I got one open! Let's eat!

Cole MacGrath: Hey, Trish.

Trish Dailey: I'm so glad you got the food down. These poor people are starving.

Cole MacGrath: Just doing what I can. Someone had to help them.

Zeke Dunbar: Those idiots dropped us canned prunes. Now who the hell'd want to eat this crap?

Evil karma dialogue

Zeke Dunbar: Man, that was harsh! Still, it'll keep us in vittles for a long time. I'll get this hauled out of here pronto.

Cole MacGrath: Hey, Trish.

Trish Dailey: What's wrong with you? People are starving, and you're stealing the only food they've seen in days?

Cole MacGrath: I did it for us, to make sure we're taken care of.

Trish Dailey: I don't get you sometimes.

(End of non-canon dialogue)

Zeke Dunbar: Cole, you're up on the big screen!

Ever Been Called a Terrorist?

Cole MacGrath (narrating): Ever been called a terrorist? All I remember from that day is going to work... and then running for my life. That video, though. How'd I get that package? Why would I deliver a bomb? For who? Regardless, the consequences are everywhere. Whatever there'd been between Trish and me was gone. She didn't say a word, no emotion, nothing. Just walked away. By then, people nearby were starting to recognize me. It was going to get ugly. Even Zeke was giving me weird looks. He and I made quick plans to meet up at Stampton Bridge, try to get out of town. Just hope he shows, cause right now I'm a little short on friends.

Gameplay (continued)

Cole MacGrath: I gave you the food. Leave me alone!

Zeke Dunbar (phone): Listen man. I'm almost to the bridge. Since everyone here hates your guts, we gotta get out of town, pronto-like.

Cole MacGrath: I'll meet you there. And Zeke — thanks for watching my back.

Zeke Dunbar (phone): Ha, sure man. I ain't about to do anything that might piss you off. See ya.

The Escape

Zeke Dunbar: Stampton Bridge, the fastest way out of town. That is, if you can get us past those baton-wielding goons.

Cole MacGrath: We're getting out of here, one way or another. Follow my lead.

(Once Cole approaches the crowd)

Voice on loudspeaker: You have entered a restricted area. Lethal force may be used at any time. Please return to your homes. You will be notified when the quarantine has been lifted.

Karmic moment

Cole MacGrath (thinking): Going to have to get past those riot cops if we want out of here. If I fry a couple of guards from inside the crowd, bet I can trigger a riot. Help keep the heat off Zeke and me... Course that means a lot of innocent people will get the hell kicked out of them...

(Pedestrian dialogue)

  • I'm not an animal. I'm starving here! I can't take it! Please!
  • You gotta let me outta here!
  • Let me out!
Good karma dialogue

Zeke Dunbar: Eat some hot lead!

Evil karma dialogue

Zeke Dunbar: Let's get in there before this gets out of control.

(End of non-cannon dialogue)

(Upon approaching the first machine gun)

Zeke Dunbar: Hey, watch out for those machine guns! Flank 'em if you have to!

(After passing through the second gate)

Zeke Dunbar: Hey man, hang from the top of that container and try shootin' 'em. It'll make you a harder target.

Voice on loudspeaker: This area is under strict quarantine. Indiscriminate lethal force will be used against all unauthorized personnel. This is your final warning.

(Upon reaching the final area)

Zeke Dunbar: Hey man, head for the quarantine station! It's our ticket out of here!

A Way Out

Cole MacGrath (narrating): The gate opened to a wall of razor wire and machine guns. Zeke made a break for it, smashed in the gate to the Decontamination Unit... and fell headlong into the harbor. And I moved. Faster than I knew I could. I was greeted by name. This FBI agent, Moya, had seen the footage of me at Ground Zero and came here to wait. Figuring I'd try to escape, knowing I'd have powers. She explained that before the blast, her husband John had been assigned to infiltrate the First Sons... a shadowy group working on a project they called the "Ray Sphere". A device designed to drain the neuro-electric energy from a group of people and concentrate it into an individual. She'd lost contact with John the night of the blast... despite all her connections, Moya was losing hope. Yet she found me, somehow believing I could be trusted, ready to make me an offer: I go back to the city, find John and the Ray Sphere... and she'll get me out of the quarantine and clear my name. This whole Ray Sphere thing sounds crazy to me... but suddenly I'm a human light socket, so maybe I should cut her some slack.

Gameplay (continued)

Moya Jones (phone): Because of the riot topside, this is the only way back into the city. Given the state of our new "partnership", I've taken the liberty of cloning your phone's frequency.

Moya Jones (phone): I've got a lock on your GPS locator, and I can hear every word you say.

Cole MacGrath: That's super.

Moya Jones (phone): Cole, the water pressure has dropped in the main running under the bridge. What's going on down there?

Cole MacGrath: Reapers were busting up some pipes.

Moya Jones (phone): Interesting — I'll see what I can find out. You worry about getting back into the city.

Moya Jones (phone): Don't forget who's holding your leash, Cole. You find John and the Ray Sphere, and I get you out of here, no questions asked. But you double-cross me, or do something stupid, and I will throw you into a hole so deep that you won't even know which way is up. Got it?

Cole MacGrath: Yeah, I got it.

(Once the player reaches the city)

Zeke Dunbar: Cole? Man, it's good to see you.

Cole MacGrath: Nice work on that gate, Wrecking Ball.

Zeke Dunbar: Hell, lived through the fall, no problem. But gettin' back to shore, well, let's just say I'm no Michael Phelps.

Cole MacGrath: Yeah, that's an understatement.

Zeke Dunbar: Hey, take it easy, Lightning Rod. So how the hell'd you live through that, man? Bullets flyin' everywhere, all over the place — figured you were a goner.

Cole MacGrath: Let's head home. I'll fill you in on the way.

"Any man can handle adversity. If you truly want to test a man's character, give him power." —Abraham Lincoln

(Back on Zeke's roof)

Cole MacGrath: ...and it drains neuro-electric energy.

Zeke Dunbar (laughs): I knew it! All the stuff I've been sayin', every word is true. Government's in cahoots with a secret organization, the Ray Sphere... damn, it all makes sense now.

Cole MacGrath: Calm down. You're going to hurt yourself.

Zeke Dunbar: That Ray Sphere mush dish out powers to anyone controlling it. You gotta bring it back here.

Cole MacGrath: Sure, I could use a side-kick.

Zeke Dunbar: Ah, hell with that. Zeke Jedediah Dunbar is his own man.

Cole MacGrath: Your middle name is Jedediah?

Zeke Dunbar: Yes it is, after my grandfather. Strong man for a man his size. Uh, I don't know where Zeke comes from, but I'm certain—

Cole MacGrath: You need to take a nap, and a bath. I got things to do.

Moya Jones (phone): I've already got a couple of leads for you; the coordinates have been uploaded into your phone. Give me a call when you're in position.

Mysterious Signals

Cole MacGrath: Alright, now what?

Moya Jones (phone): I'm picking up some weird interference from a rooftop not far from you. Need to find out its origin and purpose.

Cole MacGrath: So what am I looking for?

Moya Jones (phone): Not really sure, probably a transmitter of some type. Call me when you get over there.

(Once Cole finds a transmitter)

Cole MacGrath: Found it. Looks like a portable audio drive is attached to this satellite dish.

Moya Jones (phone): See if you can listen to it with your phone.

(After collecting the dead drop, a distorted message is heard.)

Cole MacGrath: Sounds like a bunch of garbage.

Moya Jones (phone): It's an encrypted message, but I can't break it. Look around and see if you can find another one.

(After collecting the second dead drop, another distorted message is heard.)

Cole MacGrath: You hear that? Same thing as before.

Moya Jones (phone): I'm running the signals through an decryption program on this end. I've almost cracked it, but I need another sample. Look around for more of those files.

(After collecting the third dead drop, another distorted message is heard.)

Cole MacGrath: That's the last one.

Moya Jones (phone): Give me a second — all right, that should do it. I'm uploading a decrypting algorithm into your phone. It should let you listen to the messages.

(Dead drop recording plays)

John White (recording): I-I couldn't stop Kessler from detonating the Ray Sphere. Damn thing took out five or six square blocks, killed god knows how many.

Found the Ray Sphere in the blast center, next to some kid. Dunno if he was dead or not, didn't have time to check. I'm going to try and hole up somewhere. If anyone is even listening to these things, I need immediate extraction. Please. You've got to get me out of here before Kessler finds me.

(Recording ends)

Cole MacGrath: You understand any of that?

Moya Jones (phone): I don't believe it — that's John. He must have used dead drops to communicate with his handlers.

Cole MacGrath: Um, English.

Moya Jones (phone): It means there are probably more of those scattered around the city. You should try and find as many as you can; they might tell us where he took the Ray Sphere.

Cole MacGrath: Find John and the Ray Sphere, and I'm out, right?

Moya Jones (phone): I know the deal, Cole.

Cole MacGrath: Just making sure.

Blood Trail

Cole MacGrath: Okay, Moya, what now?

Moya Jones (phone): One of my contacts, an electrician named Brandon Carey, didn't check in last night. He's pretty important, so you need to find him. He was last seen in the alley across the street from your location.

(Upon approaching a dead female body)

Cole MacGrath: Your boy isn't here, Moya — just a dead woman.

Moya Jones (phone): A woman? That doesn't make any sense.

Cole MacGrath: Hang on a second.

(When triggering Cole's Psychic Vision)

Lynnae Carey: ...Reapers... no... leave my husband alone... where are you taking him... Brandon!

Cole MacGrath: Whoa!

Moya Jones (phone): What just happened?

Cole MacGrath: I had a vision... the Reapers kidnapped Brandon. This is his wife, Lynnae. I can see the echo of someone running away.

Moya Jones (phone): Follow it. We need to find out what happened.

(Cole follows the echo until he encounters a Reaper conduit.)

Cole MacGrath: Damn!

Zeke Dunbar (phone): Pick up your damn phone.

Cole MacGrath: What's up?

Zeke Dunbar (phone): The Feds, man, that's what's up. Watching our every move, even caught one scoping out the roof. Was leaning against a wall down there, eatin' a fresh apple. Now you tell me, where the hell'd he get that?

Cole MacGrath: I dunno Zeke, but if we want to be out of here, this is the way it's got to be.

Zeke Dunbar (phone): C'mon, man, don't be stupid. They'll ride you as long as they can, but the second you're no longer useful, BAM, you vanish. Permanently.

Cole MacGrath: I think all that conspiracy stuff has rotted your brain.

Zeke Dunbar (phone): Don't kill the messenger, brother. I'm just tellin' it like it is — you watch your back.

(Cole approaches a Reaper bomber, who blows up the sub-station.)

Moya Jones (phone): What the hell happened? The entire Neon just went dark.

Cole MacGrath: That's cause one of those maniacs blew... up a whole substation... man, brain feels like it's in a vise...

Moya Jones (phone): Your body must be reacting to the absence of electricity. You're going to have to man up and find Carey. If we don't restore the power, the Reapers will be unstoppable.

(Cole enters the sewers.)

Cole MacGrath: All right, I tracked the echo to the sewers.

Moya Jones (phone): The Reapers must've needed Carey's help in shutting down the underground linear transformer.

Moya Jones (phone): Find the transformer and figure out a way to get it back online. If they killed the circuit, you'll have to re-establish it.

Cole MacGrath: Got it.

(After re-establishing the circuit and gaining new powers)

Cole MacGrath: Yeah!

Civilian: Help!

(Cole heals the civilian.)

Civilian: Thank you.

Civilian: Hey Janet, you back there? Open the gate, this guy's okay.

Civilian (to Cole): You've got to stop the Reapers. They're running around with some electrician, killing anyone they find down here.

(After passing through the door)

Cole MacGrath (to Moya): The transformer is back on. Now what?

Moya Jones (phone): Restart the distribution substation by charging up the voltage regulator mounted to its front. That should be enough to get the power back on.

Cole MacGrath: Man, must suck having to live down here.

Zeke Dunbar (phone): Hey man, you there?

Cole MacGrath: Yeah.

Zeke Dunbar (phone): Trish just stopped by and grabbed some of her stuff. She'd barely talk to me, and when I brought you up, whew, she damn near blew a gasket.

Cole MacGrath: She thinks I killed her sister.

Zeke Dunbar (phone): Man, ain't your fault that package was a bomb — hell, you're lucky to be alive. She needs to see things for what they are.

Cole MacGrath: Yeah, well I'm not holding my breath. I'll catch you later.

Moya Jones (phone): Cole, are you having any problems finding your way around down there?

Cole MacGrath: Nah, I got into urban exploration about four years ago. Crawled all over this city, so I know these sewers like the back of my hand.

(Cole finds Brandon Carey ahead.)

Brandon Carey: What are you doing here? Did they see you?

Cole MacGrath: I need to turn on the substation.

Brandon Carey: Are you out of your damn mind? The Reapers will kill my wife! No one is getting in here!

Cole MacGrath: Open the door.

Brandon Carey: Screw you! I've jammed this thing up tight. No one is getting in or out until she's safe!

Cole MacGrath (thinking): Poor guy still thinks he's protecting Lynnae — doesn't change the fact that I need to get in there. I can either fry him and open the door that way... or tell him that his wife is dead and see if that gets him to back off.

Good karma dialogue

Cole MacGrath: Lynnae is dead. They shot her.

Brandon Carey: How do you know her name?!

Cole MacGrath: I know this is hard... I saw her body. There was nothing anyone could do.

Brandon Carey (choked up): I knew I shouldn't have trusted... I'm so sorry, Lynnae...

(Brandon opens up the door.)

Brandon Carey: Listen to me — I've seen what you can do. You have to kill them. All of them. Promise me.

Cole MacGrath: I'll do what I can.

Evil karma dialogue

(Cole fries Brandon.)

Brandon Carey: Ahhhhh!

Medical Emergency

Moya Jones (phone): Cole, I just got a call from an EMT in your area. The Reapers have overrun his makeshift medical clinic, and he needs your help.

Cole MacGrath: I can't solve all the world's problems, Moya.

Moya Jones (phone): Maybe not, but if you help him, he might return the favor.

(Cole finds the EMT.)

EMT: The Reapers keep attacking the clinic I have down the street. Take care of them for me, would you?

(After defeating the Reapers)

Moya Jones (phone): There are other people around there who need help too. Keep an eye out for them.

High Ground

Cole MacGrath: Hey Moya, I'm in position.

Moya Jones (phone): There should be a cell tower fairly close to you — find it and recharge it.

Cole MacGrath: Afraid I'm gonna bail on you?

Moya Jones (phone): Without that tower, you'll fall off the grid. I can't allow that.

(Cole enters the darkened area.)

Cole MacGrath: Ah... hell... vision is blurring...

(Cole approaches the cell tower and charges it.)

Moya Jones (phone): Good, now you need to restore the electricity to this section of the Neon. Your GPS will show you where to go, but be careful — there are a lot of Reapers operating in the area.

Cole MacGrath: Uh, those guys will slaughter me. I can barely see, and charging up that tower drained me dry.

Moya Jones (phone): Stick to the high ground and avoid them. If you have to fight, look around for emergency generators — there are probably some scattered across the rooftops.

Cole MacGrath: You're going to get me killed.

Moya Jones (phone): Call me when you're in the sewer.

Cole MacGrath: Damn, juice is running low.

(Cole finds the sewer and enters.)

Cole MacGrath: Okay, I'm in.

Moya Jones (phone): Same drill as before — re-establish the circuit on the underground transformer and then look for the distribution substation.

(After re-establishing the circuit)

Zeke Dunbar (phone): Hey man, everyone around here keep carrying on about you delivering that bomb. Even George is runnin' his mouth about it.

Cole MacGrath: George? He's the one who called me, said he's got a package burning all over his desk and that I needed to beeline it. So I pick it up and take off.

Zeke Dunbar (phone): Well, he claims that no one else could deliver it, that it had to be you.

Cole MacGrath: That was a terrible job in the first place, pay sucked. And when I get there, someone calls and tells me to open the package. The next thing I know, I'm waking up in a crater.

Zeke Dunbar (phone): Well, at least you got super powers out of it. And don't worry about George and those other idiots. I'll cover for ya, man. They're frickin' gossip queens anyway.

(Once Cole restores power)

Moya Jones (phone): Nice work, Cole.

(After mission completion)

Moya Jones (phone): So, I figured out why the Reapers were destroying the water pipes under the bridge: By isolating the city's water system, they can pump their plague into every home in the city. Anyone drinking that sludge will get sick. Or Worse.

Cole MacGrath: Great.

Moya Jones (phone): Yeah. And it gets better. I'm getting reports that Smith Fountain is already polluted, and there are a lot of casualties. Head over there and confirm my intel, then we'll figure out what we're going to do.

Zeke Dunbar (phone): Hey man, you ain't gonna believe this one. You know those areas of the city you've been clearin' out? They're crime free now, people are hanging up posters with your face on them.

Cole MacGrath: I'm doing what I can, Zeke. No one needs to throw me a parade.

Zeke Dunbar (phone): I know man. I know. Still, that's pretty damn cool.

Mind Games

Cole MacGrath: Not looking good, Moya. Sick People all over the place, and the water in the fountain is black.

Moya Jones: (phone) All right, get over there. We need to find a way to stop this.

(Cole spots Trish ahead.)

Trish Dailey: C'mon, breathe! Breathe!

(Cole approaches her.)

Cole MacGrath: Moya wanted me to see what's going on with the fountain.

Trish Dailey: Who's Moya?

Cole MacGrath: Doesn't matter. Look Trish, I know what that guy said about me.

Trish Dailey: My sister is dead because of you.

Cole MacGrath: I swear. I didn't know what was in that package.

Trish Dailey: I don't want to hear it. You want to help? Fine. You can start by closing that valve over there — it's jammed and I can't turn it. That's how the black tar is getting into the fountain.

(Cole turns the valves, causing the tar to spill over his face.)

Trish Dailey: Ugh. It's all over your eyes — I need to get a solvent out of my car. Follow me.

Sasha: (echo) I've been watching you, Cole. Waiting for this moment. Anticipating it.

Cole MacGrath: ...who's... doing this...

Sasha: (echo) She hates you. Loathes you. Your power frightens her. She'll never love you. I can make you forget about her. Everything you shared, gone like a whisper. No more pain, no more heartache.

Cole MacGrath:'re... not real...

Trish Dailey: This way.

Sasha: (echo) You're mine. Body and soul. We'll be together. Always.

Trish Dailey: Hold still.

(Trish sprays Cole's face with the solvent.)

Cole MacGrath: Thanks.

Trish Dailey: That's the only time I'm helping you, Cole. If you get that stuff on you again, you're just going to have to wait for it to wear off.

Cole MacGrath: I took care of the fountain, Moya. Had to shut off the feeder pipe that led into it.

Moya Jones: (phone) There are two more water mains in the area.

Cole MacGrath: Gotcha. I'll turn those off and see what happens.

(After turning the second valve)

Cole MacGrath: Ugh — sonofa...

Sasha: (echo) I feel your broken heart, Cole. So much emotion, bottled up with nowhere to go. Why do you love her? She's beneath you. You deserve better.

Cole MacGrath: ...just... shut up...

Sasha: (echo) You're all alone, you know. No one cares about you. Not the girl, not the fat man on the roof. Not the woman under the bridge. Only I love you. I've always loved you, Cole. Always and forever.

Cole MacGrath: For God's sake... get out!

(Upon approaching the second valve)

Cole MacGrath: If I turn that valve, I'll take another blast of crud to the face. Probably screw me up, send me on another mind trip. Or maybe I force this guy to do it for me...

Good karma dialogue

(Cole turns the valve.)

Cole MacGrath: Ahh!

End of good karma dialogue
Evil karma dialogue

(Cole injures the civilian.)

Cole MacGrath: Go turn that valve, or I'll fry you like a piece of bacon.

End of evil karma dialogue

Sasha: (echo) You won't be able to shut me out forever. Eventually, a crack will appear, and that crack will spread, and grow larger, and then the wall comes down.

Sasha: (echo) It's only a matter of time.

Moya Jones: (phone) Now that the valves are off, you need to figure out how those maniacs are getting that tar into the system. The only primary water line around there runs under Memorial Park — head into the tunnel and look for it.

Sasha: (echo) You don't know love. Not true love. But I will teach you. And then the bastard will see what he lost.

(Cole ventures through the tunnel and finds a truck.)

Cole MacGrath: There's a truck attached to the pipe down here.

Moya Jones: (phone) That's probably the source of the plague. Destroy it.

Cole MacGrath: What the hell is that stuff?

Moya Jones: (phone) Some kind of mind-control agent. It appears to be organic, but I don't know how they're producing it.

Cole MacGrath: Ugh. Yeah, well, sure did a number on me. I'm heading back to Zeke's — my head is killing me.

"Every man is guilty of all the good he did not do." —Voltaire

(After waking up on Zeke's roof)

Moya Jones: (phone) I've flagged the position of the next substation in your GPS, Cole.

Cole MacGrath: Uh, shouldn't I be hunting for John and the Ray Sphere?

Moya Jones: (phone) You need to look at the big picture: Every time you restore electricity to a section of the city, your powers escalate. I'd say that's a valuable use of your time.

Moya Jones: (phone) I'll be in touch once you get the substation back online.

The Good Stuff

(Once inside the sewers)

Cole MacGrath: Hey, Moya, I'm down in the sewer. Should have the power back on in no time.

Moya Jones: (phone) Roger.

(After re-establishing the circuit)

Zeke Dunbar: (phone) Dude.

Cole MacGrath: Hey.

Zeke Dunbar: (phone) You been payin' attention to that TV jacker? Used to think he was pretty righteous, but now he spends half his time trashin' you. Makes me think you pay him a little visit.

Cole MacGrath: Believe me, I'd love to. No idea where he's hiding, though.

Zeke Dunbar: (phone) Probably holed up in the old TV station over in the Historic District. You find him, you give him a taste of the good stuff. He's gotta learn not to run his mouth all the time.

(After power is restored and the mission ends)

Moya Jones: (phone) Good work, Cole. When you're ready, I've got a couple of things I'd like you to look into. One of them might lead us to John.

The Rescue

Moya Jones: (phone) See that old train? The Reapers have some people locked up in it, collateral to keep the people of the Neon in line. More importantly, there's a chance John is locked in there.

Cole MacGrath: Want me to bust them out?

Moya Jones: (phone) No. You're in the heart of Reaper territory, and they'll kill anyone trying to escape. You need to move the train to a safe location.

Cole MacGrath: How am I supposed to do that? Push?

Moya Jones: (phone) You're a living third rail — stay in contact with the lead car and it should move.

(Once Cole gets the train moving)

Cole MacGrath: Just stay calm in there!

Warden Harms: (phone) Cole, this is Warden Harms. I know you've got your hands full, but from time to time, I'm going to need your help handling some things.

Cole MacGrath: What've you got in mind?

Warden Harms: (phone) My men have captured some Reapers, and I need you to escort them back to the station so we can interrogate them.

(Cole finds the captured Reapers.)

Warden Harms: (phone) Sorry for pulling my men out — we're stretched really thin. Bring in the Reapers, and don't be afraid to get a little rough with them.

(Approaching the satellite)

Cole MacGrath: Looks busted.

Moya Jones: (phone) Drain that one of its electricity, which will reset it. Once that's done, you just need to run past the others, and you'll resynchronize them all.

(If Cole destroys a gas station for the first time)

Zeke Dunbar: (phone) Who-hoo! Just saw this helacious explosion! What the hell was that?

Cole MacGrath: Um... I blew up the gas station.

Zeke Dunbar: (phone) What?! Just 'cause you can't drive, man, doesn't mean no one else wants to. We could've used that gas.

Cole MacGrath: Oh, like you wouldn't have done the same thing.

Zeke Dunbar: (phone) Touché, capitain.
