(Travel to Deck 13½)


(Sepia comic-art drawing of the original Vault Hunters, Pickle, Tiny Tina, Claptrap, and Athena sitting on the steps of Sanctuary)

(Normal Mode)

Claptrap: Ooh! Ooh! Athena! You almost forgot to tell Lilith and everyone the BEST PART of the adventure!

Athena: I assure you my report was sufficiently thorough.

Claptrap: Nuh-uh! What about the REALLY cool stuff that happened right at the end?!

Athena: The end?

Claptrap: When Handsome Jack had you all go... inside me!

Athena: Oh, that. Ugh.

Lilith: Well, Athena, I'm allll ears.

(End Normal Mode)

(True Vault Hunter Mode)

Pickle: Athena! Can you tell the story again? I missed it. And can there be even more WHOOSH and BANG and PEW-PEW-PEWS this time around?!

Athena: The story is what it is -- I won't add things that didn't happen.

Tiny Tina: Yeah, kid! The story's what it is. If you're gonna hang with the grownies you gotta do things our way -- DON'T SIT THERE THAT'S FOR PRINCESS FLUFFYBUTT!

Pickle: Uh, how about here?

Tiny Tina: Princess Fluffybutt says that's ok.

Athena: Okay. You ready?

Pickle: As I'll ever be! And remember -- lashings of WHOOSH and BANG and PEW-PEW-PEW!

(End True Vault Hunter Mode)

(Handsome Jack is typing in a computer console in his office, with Tassiter lying dead beside him.)

Handsome Jack: Oh hey, Harold, uh -- what's with this... secret memo? What's it say here, uh... "Urgent memory retrieval of the FR4G-TP unit", you... sly old fox, you! What do you want with my claptrap unit?

Handsome Jack: I'm sorry, what was that? You're gonna have to speak up a little.

Handsome Jack: Harold! Let's not fight. What did the therapist say?

Handsome Jack: Hnnngh, the H-Source is REAL?! Digital omnipotence, gimme gimme!

Handsome Jack: Oh, are you frickin' KIDDING me? You hid it in THERE? How the HELL am I gonna get it out? Y'know what, Harold, leave it with me -- I'll dig into it.

(End Cutscene)

Handsome Jack: Hey! Come meet me in my secret lab on Deck 13½.

(The mission "Enter the Claptrap" is now automatically accepted.)

Handsome Jack: Yeah -- weird as it sounds, 13½ is between... decks 13 and 14. It'll make sense.


Handsome Jack: I'm still here, still here, still here, still here. Hey. I'm still here.

(Talk to Jack)

Handsome Jack: Hey, I've got a suuuper cool job for ya, if you're interested. Are ya? Heh, yeah you are. So, the dealio. The H-Source! Mind-melting prototypes, access codes, corporate secrets -- everything a handsome new CEO could ever wish for! God, I NEED IT, I WANT IT, I GOTTA GO GET IT!

  • Jack (to human): But, sneaky ol' Tassiter hid it inside my experimental claptrap unit, because... he's a jerk.
  • Jack (to Claptrap): But, sneaky ol' Tassiter hid it deep inside YOUR code, because he was a HUGE jerk!

Handsome Jack: And what with security protocols and all, I can't goddamn extract it! So pop quiz: why are YOU here? Well, go plug yourself into those digistruct pads, 'cause first off -- I'ma gonna digitize ya!

  • Athena (if present): I can do that.
  • Wilhelm (if present): Okay.
  • Nisha (if present): Yeah, okay.
  • Claptrap (if present): Man, I bet I look GOOD in raw code!
  • Jack2 (if present): Uh... sure, boss.
  • Aurelia (if present): With pleasure.

(Enter digistruct pad)

  • Athena (if present): Now what?
  • Wilhelm (if present): Now what?
  • Nisha (if present): So now what?
  • Claptrap (if present): This tickles!
  • Jack2 (if present): So, uh, what's next, boss?
  • Aurelia (if present): And now?

Handsome Jack: This, uh, might hurt. Probably does. I dunno. Y'know what, you tell me.

  • Athena (if present): Ahhh!
  • Wilhelm (if present): Ahhh!
  • Nisha (if present): Ahhh! Ahh...
  • Claptrap (if present): Ahhh! I LIKE it! Very minimalist.
  • Jack2 (if present): Ahhhah, Owww!
  • Aurelia (if present): Ahhh!

(Vault Hunters are transported into the digital world)

  • Jack (to human): Welcome to Hyperion's prototype, a sort of digital airlock that preps your living code for insertion into Claptrap. I hooked it up to the digistruct pads.
  • Jack (to Claptrap): Welcome to Hyperion's prototype, a sort of digital airlock that preps your physical code for insertion into, well... you. It's super technical. Point is, I hooked it up to the digistruct pads.

Handsome Jack: And here's where I dial up the genius by, like, a kerzillion... (door appears)

  • Athena (if present): Where does THAT lead?
  • Wilhelm (if present): Okay. Where's that go?
  • Nisha (if present): And that goes where, exactly?
  • Claptrap (if present): Ooh! A closed door! Where's it go?
  • Jack2 (if present): Just glad to still be alive! Uh -- where's that go?
  • Aurelia (if present): A door. How impressive.

Handsome Jack: Head through there and pick up the admin password. It's kind of a big deal. It's the only one I've got.


Handsome Jack: You are goin' nowhere 'til you pick up that admin password.

(Pick up password)

  • Athena (if present): So, where we going?
  • Wilhelm (if present): Alright. Next?
  • Nisha (if present): Okay. So where we going?
  • Claptrap (if present): One admin password picked up! Where do I take this?
  • Jack2 (if present): Got it. So, where next?
  • Aurelia (if present): And now?
  • Jack (to Athena): Yeah, it's a "we", as in "you".
  • Jack (to Wilhelm): Oh, next you get to go somewhere suuuper cool, and earn some moo-lah.
  • Jack (to Nisha): Somewhere real cool, hun. Trust me.
  • Jack (to Claprap): Somehwere that'll fry your tiny robotic mind!
  • Jack (to Jack2): Oh! Oh, you are TOTALLY gonna love it! -- I didn't even blink when I said that!
  • Jack (to Aurelia): And now -- wait for it, lady...
  • Jack (to human): Now head to the console and initiate my digi-sim program -- that'll load up a simulation of Claptrap's mind. If you can call it that.
  • Jack (to Claptrap): Now, uh, head to the console and initiate my digi-sim program -- that'll load up a simulation of your mind. If you can call it that.

(Initiate simulation)

Hyperion: Initiating CL4-TP simulation program.

Handsome Jack: That will take you into a simulation of Claptrap's mind. Yeah, I know -- what the hell kind of dump's that gonna be? I envision, just like, an endless loop of cat videos.

  • Jack (to human): Yeah, I fixed it so his mind's gonna think you're native code. Cool, right? You just walk in, hand over the admin password, get my H-Source, then walk right back out again. Easy peasy.
  • Jack (to Claptrap): I fixed it so your mind's gonna think you're native code. It's cool, right? You can just scoot in, hand over the admin password, get my H-Source, and scoot right back on out again.
  • Athena (if present): Sounds simple enough -- apart from the "inside his mind" part.
  • Wilhelm (if present): Ha! Didn't know the trashcan HAD a mind!
  • Nisha (if present): I'm up for the ride... but yeah, bet it's a cesspit.
  • Claptrap (if present): Oh boy! Don't know if I'm ready for this -- I'm waaaay overdue for an oil change!
  • Jack2 (if present): Can we get some sanitary wipes? I bet that place is just icky, so... no? Okay. Thought not.
  • Aurelia (if present): To the silly little robot's silly little mind! Let us away!

Handsome Jack: Big moment! Heeeere's the reveal! (path appears to a door framed with a giant holographic claptrap)

Handsome Jack: Can't give you a clearer visual metaphor than this.

(Enter The Nexus)

  • Jack (to human):(looking in through a giant window) You actually made it? Wow, cool. Okay, so you're in a simulation of Claptrap's mind -- so, I guess it'll be full of digital representations of memories and people and, uh, whatever else he thinks about.
  • Jack (to Claptrap):(looking in through a giant window) That, uh... that didn't -- that didn't kill you! Heh, okay! Fantastic, I'll make a note of that. So, uh, make yourself useful in there!
  • Athena (if present): Well, this should be interesting.
  • Wilhelm (if present): This place better have a decent drop rate.
  • Nisha (if present): Another day, another freaky place.
  • Claptrap (if present): I suddenly feel very introspective.
  • Jack2 (if present): So, not really full at all, then.
  • Aurelia (if present): My brain is going to need a long soaky bath after this.

(Enter Positive Terminal)

M00CH5H4RK.0101.BAT: Hey! Want help getting around in here?

5CR0UN63YS4M.0707.BAT: Y-Yeah! I can help!

B3LLB0Y.BAT: I can take you wherever you want to go!

URCH1N.BAT: Anywhere you want to go! Five dollars!

M00CH5H4RK.0101.BAT: Yeah, five dollars!

5CR0UN63YS4M.0707.BAT: Five dollars! I'll get you what you want!

B3LLB0Y.BAT: Five dollars! Pick me! Pick me!

URCH1N.BAT: Five dollars! Pick me! I've got four subroutines to feed!

(Pay $5 to one bot)

Paid bot: Yeah, it's that way!

(Enter next room)


(Claptrap's consciousness materializes)

Claptrap's Consciousness: Helloooo -- digitized traveler, and welcome! I am Claptrap's consciousness, AND his higher CPU functions! Yaaaay!


(End cutscene)

  • Athena (if present): Uh. Hello?
  • Wilhelm (if present): Don't get up in my grill, buddy, and we're cool.
  • Nisha (if present): Ha, "higher"? Yeah right.
  • Claptrap (if present): So, YOU'RE the voice I occasionally hear in my head!
  • Jack2 (if present): Sff -- tough gig, pal.
  • Aurelia (if present): Enchantée!

Handsome Jack: Eh, looks like you got yourself a guide there, heh! Good luck with that.

Claptrap's Consciousness: Oooo! You got an admin password, don't you?! Woooow! How special are you?! I can show you RIGHT where to put that! That's not rude, I mean, I actually CAN show you!

(Move to next section)

(True Vault Hunter Mode)

Pickle: Cor! So you zapped inside Claptrap? Wonder how you could nick stuff if you're made of ones and zeros.

Tiny Tina: Princess Fluffybutt's more interested in what happened next. Please, Athena, continue.

Athena: Uh... okay?

(End True Vault Hunter Mode)

(Engage bugs)

Claptrap's Consciousness: Uh oh -- BUGS! I'm so embarassed! I didn't realize how bad the infestation was! Careful, the small ones explode!

(Enter Nexus)

Claptrap's Consciousness: SYS_ADMIN's up here! And, uh... when you're done with that password... can I have it? I mean, you know. Only if you're not usin' it.

(Approach SYS_ADMIN)

Claptrap's Consciousness: Hey, SYS_ADMIN! It's me!

SYS_ADMIN: We're definitely not doing THAT!

Claptrap's Consciousness: He didn't hear me. Let's go around the side.

SYS_ADMIN: Data request queued.

SYS_ADMIN: Denied.

(Confront SYS_ADMIN)

Claptrap's Consciousness: Hey! It's ME!

SYS_ADMIN: Who? What do you want?

(Talk to SYS_ADMIN)

  • Athena (if present): Uhh, I just wanna hand in this admin password and collect the H-Source thing.
  • Wilhelm (if present): I got a password pass for the H-Source.
  • Nisha (if present): Can I just give you this password thing and you give me the H-Source thing?
  • Claptrap (if present): I've got an admin password and sure would like the H-Source, please!
  • Jack2 (if present): Yeah -- I've got this password and reeeeally want the H-Source! -- And that is acting, right there!
  • Aurelia (if present): I'm here to collect the H-Source. I have a password and very little interest in excuses!

SYS_ADMIN: Fine, hand it over!

(Give password)

SYS_ADMIN: That's... embarrassing. The H-Source is in Memory Bank 2, Cluster 00773 P4ND0R4 and marked "DO NOT REMOVE" by the Tassiter Proxy. Admin password privileges REVOKED.

  • Athena (if present): Excuse me -- what?
  • Wilhelm (if present): What?
  • Nisha (if present): You're jerking me around, right?
  • Claptrap (if present): Now, is this because I'm metallic?
  • Jack2 (if present): I... Say what?
  • Aurelia (if present): I beg your pardon?!

Handsome Jack: Awww, no no NO NO NO! My admin password!

SYS_ADMIN: YOU'RE not welcome here!

Handsome Jack: And that... screws everything up. Thanks a bunch.

Claptrap's Consciousness: A whole admin password?! GONE?! JUST LIKE THAT?! Okay, I've moved on. At least there's a way you can STILL get what you want -- and I can help!
