(Vault Hunter arrives at the entrance to The Fridge.)
Angel: Son of a... witch. The door's iced over. Let me help you with that.
(Angel activates large burners melting the ice.)
Angel: You're at the entrance to The Fridge -- just make your way through and your friends should be on the other side.
(Vault Hunter enters The Fridge.)
Angel: I've been following Jack's orders from the beginning. Jack modified the power core you found to have a Hyperion Network uplink. Through it, I was able to access Sanctuary's defenses and lower them. It was all... part of Jack's plan.
Scooter: for nourishment, I bring this up because my daddy told me folksy stories with homespun wisdom can manipulate an audience into buying your crap. I probaly wasn't supposed to say that part out loud. Uh, well... come on down to Scooter's Catch-A-Ride and I'll nod unwillingly to your long-winded stories that no one else will listen to anyway, haha! I'll even pretend I like 'em. Cars're sweet, yo!
(From an unknown source, most probably from a radio found among the car wrecks, not heard on each visit.)
(As the Vault Hunter makes his way through the Fridge... )
Angel: Five years ago, I tricked Roland and his friends into opening the Vault. I told them it was to protect Pandora from a great evil. That was a lie. Jack knew he could make a fortune off the Eridium held within the Vault, but he was too much of a coward to open it himself. Through me, he got the Vault Hunters to do his dirty work. I am so tired of manipulating people.
(As the Vault Hunter takes the elevator to the exit ... )
Angel: Without you, Pandora has no hope. You have no reason to trust me, I get that. But if you're going to stop Jack from controlling the Warrior, you'll need my help. Because I know where the Key is. It's with me.
(As the Vault Hunter enters The Highlands -Outwash, with a blast and bright light Sanctuary materializes in the skies above ...)
Lilith: Annnnd... I'm awesome. Hey, killer. I phased the city. No big deal. Find a way back here as quick as you can.
Angel: Now that Sanctuary's reappeared, you can use any fast-travel station to get back to the Crimson Raiders. I'll mark the nearest one on your ECHO device.
(Vault Hunter tries to use the fast-travel station ...)
Robotic voice: Error. Location [Sanctuary] not found.
Angel: Oh, no -- the phase blast must have taken Sanctuary off the fast-travel network. Uh... okay. Head to the Eridium Extraction Plant nearby. I think I know how to get you back to your friends.
Angel: You know, I didn't lie to you about everything. You really are the only person who can stop Jack. Roland, Lilith, and Mordecai -- he defeated them long ago. They can help you reach him, but in the end... it will be you who brings Jack down.
(Vault Hunter approaches the extraction plant.)
Angel: If you can cross the river and steal a supply beacon, we can get Sanctuary back onto the fast-travel network. I promise. Little as I'm sure that means right now.
(While the Vault Hunter gets closer to the bridge fighting Hyperion forces along the way ...)
Angel: Darn -- that EXP Loader took out the bridge controls. Find another way across the river!!
Angel: I'm detecting a cargo mover in the area -- maybe that can help you cross the river.
(Vault Hunter climbs the stairs up to cargo mover control panel, calls for one, and rides it across the river.)
Angel: Do you see those lunar supply shots? We need to steal a lunar supply beacon and get the moonbase to send you an uncalibrated fast-travel unit. You can use that to get Sanctuary back on the fast-travel network. Simple. Except not at all.
(Vault hunter approaches the gate to the Orbital Receiving and Processing zone when a Constructor and some loaders show up. The gate opens once all of them are destroyed.)
(As the Vault Hunter approaches lunar supply beacon, a Glutonous Thresher bursts out from the ground and takes it away.)
Angel: Did that thresher just eat the beacon? Uh... you'll need to get that back.
(Vault Hunter kills the thresher and loaders, and picks up the beacon.)
Angel: You've got the beacon? Good -- we can use that to request an uncalibrated fast-travel unit from the moonbase. You'll need a quiet place to set up the beacon. Head to the town of Overlook. Thanks to Hyperion's mining operations, the people of Overlook suffer from the skull-shivers. They won't disturb us.
Lilith: Hunh. Well, we've got no plan to stop Jack, but at least the quakes from his drills aren't shaking the city anymore. Silver linings, you know?
Roland: I can't believe Jack was controlling the Angel all along. We almost got killed opening the Vault, just so we could bring that sonofabitch into power!
Lilith: Well, now we're almost-getting-killed just to get him out of power. Nice to know some things never change.
(Vault Hunter enters The Highlands ...)
Handsome Jack: Argh, this is so frustrating. Y'see, this is what I don't get about you bad guys. You know the hero's gonna win, but you just don't die quickly. Example: this one guy in New Haven, right? City's burning, people are dying left and right, yadda yadda yadda. This jackhole rushes me with a spoon. A fricking spoon! And I'm dying laughing, right? So I scoop out his stupid little eyeballs with it, and his kids are all, waaahh!, and, he can't see where he's going, he's bumping in to stuff, and ah... I don't know, maybe you had to be there. The moral is: you're a total bitch.
(Vault Hunter takes a vehicle and drives over to the Overlook.)
Mordecai: You found Overlook, huh? Used to be a nice little town, until Hyperion took over. Now everybody there's got the skull-shivers thanks to Jack's mining operations. Poor bastards are too sick to leave their homes.
Angel: You'll wanna set up the beacon over there -- once the moonbase processes our request, you should have a fast-travel station.
(Vault Hunter deploys the beacon at the location indicated on the map.)
Angel: It's transmitting the supply request now. We've just gotta wait a few minutes, and...
Handsome Jack: Angel, that's enough. You can stop pretending to help the bad guys now. Angel?
Angel: We don't have long until Jack realizes I'm not helping him anymore. Defend that beacon!
(Wave of loaders shoes up.)
Handsome Jack: Now, if you can't even handle these loaders, you're really going to disappoint me.
Hyperion: Uncalibrated fast-travel station request received. Estimated processing time: three to six weeks.
Angel: No! No, no, no -- I'll move some data around, see if I can bump you up in the queue.
Handsome Jack: Angel, what the hell are you doing?!
Angel: I've increased your request's priority. T-Bone Junction can live without medical supplies for another few months.
(Depending on level of damage inflicted to the beacon, messages below will be heard.)
Angel: They've damaged the beacon -- repair it!
Angel: Repair the beacon, quickly!
Angel: The beacon has been damaged!
Angel: You've got to repair the beacon or the supply drop will never arrive!
Angel: If you don't repair the beacon you can't get back to Sanctuary!
Angel: The beacon's been damaged, get back to it!
Angel: You have to repair the beacon!
Angel: Get back to the beacon and repair it!
Angel: They've damaged the beacon again!
Angel: They've hit the beacon!
Angel: Repair the beacon!
Angel: If you don't repair the beacon the supply request won't go through!
Angel: The beacon has been hit again!
Angel: You've got to repair the beacon!
Angel: You can't get back to Sanctuary if you don't repair that beacon!
Handsome Jack: Wow. You're really bad at protecting that beacon.
Handsome Jack: What makes you think you can take me down if you can't even repair that beacon?
Handsome Jack: The beacon's damaged, kiddo. And that's why you're gonna die here.
(As the Vaut Hunter keeps fighting wave after wave of loaders ...)
Angel: God... darnit. The lunar engineers denied our request. I'll see what I can do.
Handsome Jack: Send in the constructors! I want those bastards dead NOW!
Angel: I just shut off the moonbase's oxygen supply. I expect the engineers will launch your fast-travel station very soon.
Handsome Jack: Goddammit, Angel! What are you doing?! Those are the bad guys!
Handsome Jack: I'm sending everything I have at you. EVERYTHING!
(More loaders being moon-shot down to Overlook, some more digi-constructed locally ...)
Angel: They're launching the fast-travel station now! Nothing gets results like a death threat.
Angel: It's almost here! Just protect the beacon for another few seconds!
Angel: The fast-travel has landed! Gimme a second while I calibrate it to Sanctuary's new position!
Robotic Voice: Fast-travel station calibrated. Location [Sanctuary] is now available for travel.
Angel: Go, quickly -- use the fast-travel station and get back to Sanctuary!
Handsome Jack: Angel, you and I are gonna have a serious talk.
(Vault Hunter uses the fast-travel station and gets back to Sanctuary.)
Roland: The city may be safe right now, but what happens if Hyperion launches another barrage? We've got no shield.
Lilith: Ah. Good point. Lemme get on the ECHO.
Lilith: Listen up, Hyperion! If you've got any bright ideas to blast Sanctuary out of the sky, just remember -- I can phase the city anywhere I want at the drop of a hat. But, if you wanna waste another few billion dollars launching mortars at us, be my guest.
Lilith: Well, that's that taken care of.
Roland: Well done. Was, uh... was any of that true?
Lilith: What? Hell no. It's a miracle I didn't phase us into a mountain.
(Vault Hunter turns in the mission to Roland.)
