(to do: missing Aurelia quotes when shooting thermal charges)
(Enter Helios Targeting Centrum)
Jack: Huh. The Eye is... right through there. Seems kinda easy though... I expected more resistance –
Zarpedon: – Initiate lockdown!
Zarpedon: Raise the force field!
Jack: Oh, you're just the worst... Mox, any ideas?
Moxxi: There should be a fusion reactor nearby feeding power to the force field. If you can disrupt it, the field should come down.
Moxxi: The fusion reactor is behind a panel. Once you bring it out, it'll look like a series of red and blue canisters.
Moxxi: Alright, that's an HY-26 mini fusion reactor. To disable it, you'll need to damage the blue coolant – NOT the red thermal charges.
Moxxi: Easy peasy!
(Destroy thermal charge)
- Athena (if present): I hate this place.
- Wilhelm (if present): That was on purpose.
- Nisha (if present): Meant to do that.
- Claptrap (if present): I did it!
- Jack2 (if present): Great.
- Aurelia (if present): Owww!
Moxxi: According to the blueprints, looks like there are three more of those babies. Two of 'em just need a little love tap and you'll be able to get to the Eye and shut it down.
(Use first reactor)
Moxxi: Same deal here. Break the coolant, not the red stuff.
(Use second reactor)
Moxxi: There's another node. Remember: blue good, red bad.
(Destroy coolant (Alpha))
Moxxi: You've certainly got the touch.
(Destroy thermal charge (Alpha))
Moxxi: Butterfingers, huh?
- Athena (if present): Damn. It!
- Wilhelm (if present): Dammit!
- Nisha (if present): That one felt kinda good.
- Claptrap (if present): FRUSTRATION!
- Jack2 (if present): Hate this space station!
- Aurelia (if present): (missing)
(Destroy coolant (Beta))
Moxxi: Quite a sense of timing you've got there, sugar.
(Destroy thermal charge (Beta))
Moxxi: Things getting a little hot?
- Athena (if present): Dammit!
- Wilhelm (if present): Didn't get all these enhancements to AVOID getting hurt.
- Nisha (if present): Wanted that to happen.
- Claptrap (if present): Joke's on you – I WANTED to get horribly maimed!
- Jack2 (if present): Ow!
- Aurelia (if present): (missing)
(Both smaller reactors destroyed)
Moxxi: Now that all the smaller reactors are shut down, it's time for the big climax. Find the primary fusion reactor – it'll take a bit more work to bring down, so get ready to put in some elbow grease.
(Return to Helios Targeting Centrum)
Moxxi: That's the big reactor. Just access the system and it'll start draining power from the force field.
Hyperion: Force field power draining.
Moxxi: Alright, just hold on. This reactor holds a huge charge – once it's drained, the field will come down.
Zarpedon: You will NEVER reach the laser core! Soldiers – KILL!
Moxxi: It's powering down! Just hold your ground until it's off, and don't let them power it back up!
Moxxi: This is taking forever – Lilith! Roland! The surge relays must be supplying power to the reactor! Take them out!
Lilith: No idea what that means, but we'll start shootin' stuff!
(Soldier approaches console)
Moxxi: A soldier is trying to bring the shield back up!
Moxxi: One of the soldiers made it to the reactor!
(Soldier stops drain)
Moxxi: They've stopped the reactor drain, you have to restart it!
Moxxi: Honey, you gotta keep them away from the reactor!
Moxxi: Roland, Lilith – I need the path WIDE OPEN or things are gonna get messy!
Lilith: Working on it! Also, that's what she said!
Moxxi: I know what she said, just do it!
Roland: We've got heavy resistance – that's gonna take some time.
Roland: Moxxi! I can't find the power to the security fields! We got –
Lilith: This thing looks important! I'm gonna blow it up!
Lilith: I am a genius!
(Force field down)
Hyperion: Force field power depleted. Force field disabled.
Jack: The way to the laser is open. I'm coming down!
(Enter Eye of Helios)
Jack: The laser core awaits – let's get goin'.
(Approaching electricity field)
Jack: Yeahhh, uh – we're gonna have to go through... here.
- Athena (if present): You're kidding me.
- Wilhelm (if present): Screw. That.
- Nisha (if present): You gotta be joking.
- Claptrap (if present): Why would you even build something like that?
- Jack2 (if present): Oh, COME ON!
- Aurelia (if present): Oh, this is going to be FUN!
Jack: It's an electrical convergence... yaddaya, it doesn't matter. Just wait for the laser to fire before you run through. It'll momentarily drain the power and stop all the electricity.
Jack: Wait for it... Now! Go!
(Passing the electricity field)
Jack: Oh man, I hate that thing. Wish the laser didn't need it. Or that they hadn't built it like an enormous death trap.
Jack: Son of a...
Jack: Aw, it – of COURSE it's locked from the other side! THANKS, ZARPEDON! We're gonna have to take the long way around – let's hit the elevator and go topside.
(Introduction screen - Colonel T. Zarpedon: To The Last)
Jack: I'll take care of the troops – you take out Zarpedon's powersuit!
Zarpedon: Too scared to face me yourself, Jack?!
(Kill Powersuit Zarpedon)
Jack: Whew! That was an ordeal, huh? Man, I'm glad that asshole is dead. Just – gimme a second to catch my breath here and we'll... shut down the laser.
Jack: Oh, COME ON, she's still alive?!
(Introduction screen - Colonel T. Zarpedon: One Death To Save Millions)
Jack: Hold your fire – I'm not done with her yet.
Zarpedon: It doesn't matter what happens today... your fall is coming.
Jack: Yeah yeah, cool. Where's the Vault?
Zarpedon: Hidden beneath a tangle of chemical filth! I've seen what lies inside it. You can't –
Jack: Waitwaitwait, you've seen inside it? The Vault's open?
Zarpedon: You must turn back. The power within the Vault will trigger a chain of events that –
Jack: Bored! (shoots Zarpedon, killing her.)
Tiny Tina (if TVHM): HOT DAMN COLD BLOODED.
Jack: The Vault's already open, huh? Cool. Now let's deal with that laser core.
(Approach Laser core)
Jack: Don't enter the barrel of the laser when it's firing. For obvious reasons.
(Enter The Laser Core)
Jack: And this is where the magic happens.
- Athena (if present): What the hell is that?
- Wilhelm (if present): The hell am I lookin' at?
- Nisha (if present): The hell is that?
- Claptrap (if present): Waaaait a second... that eye looks familiar.
- Jack2 (if present): Never thought the Eye of Helios would be an actual eye.
- Aurelia (if present): Oh, it's appalling! I love it!
Jack: This is what makes the Eye of Helios work. It's the core of the entire weapon.
Roland: How could this thing even generate that much power?
Jack: Come over here, I'll show you.
Jack: Once we get this baby back under our control, it could wipe out entire bandit encampments with ZERO friendly casualties. Sounds pretty great, right?
Lilith: Yeah. Sounds great.
(Meet up with Jack)
Jack: There she is. Hey, pumpkin! You in there?
Roland: What the hell? Is that...
Jack: The Eye of Helios. Well, it's actually the Eye of the Destroyer creature who came outta the Vault, but I attached it to my laser to increase its power tenfold. Cause I'm awesome.
Lilith: You used the Destroyer's eye as a weapon?
Jack: It was a weapon already – all the Eridian remnants are. I just figured out how to use it. Anyway, how do we shut this thing down?
Moxxi: Carefully. Even ignoring the weird-ass eye, this type of reactor is highly volatile. You're feeding it something that amplifies its power, aren't you?
Jack: Oh, uh, runoff from the Eridium refinement process. Some of the scientists call it "slag".
Moxxi: Alright – do EXACTLY as I say and everything will be fine. Switch three of the flow sequencers to their prime position and reverse the power differential.
- Athena (if present): Uhhh...
- Wilhelm (if present): Uh...
- Nisha (if present): Uh...
- Claptrap (if present): Uh...
- Jack2 (if present): Ummmm...
- Aurelia (if present): Pardon?
Moxxi: Press the thingy until you see purple, then press the thingy again.
- Athena (if present): Roger.
- Wilhelm (if present): Coulda just said that.
- Nisha (if present): Pretentious sleaze.
- Claptrap (if present): Of course! I knew that!
- Jack2 (if present): Welp, blew my chances with her. Great. Way to go, moron.
- Aurelia (if present): Ah! You're just a delight, Moxxi!
(After switching first thingy to purple)
Jack: Moxxi, you uhhh – sure about this?
(After injecting first thingy)
- Athena (if present): The eye's reacting.
- Wilhelm (if present): Is something going on with the eye?
- Nisha (if present): What's going on with the eye?
- Claptrap (if present): Is it just me, or did that eye just whimper?
- Jack2 (if present): Uhhh – somethin' going on with the eye?
- Aurelia (if present): Ehm – the Eye seems to be upset.
Jack: Eh Mox, I only juice the eye with a little bit of slag at a time. Are you sure that –
Moxxi: It won't hurt the eyeball – trust me, sugar.
(After injecting second thingy)
Jack: Uh, Moxxi, the eye's freaking out.
Moxxi: If this slag stuff is powering the laser, we need to force as much of it as we can back into the eye. The increased power will trip a failsafe and let us shut everything down. The eyeball may not like it, but it'll be fine, honey.
(After injecting third thingy)
Hyperion: Warning. Space-time instability detected. Entering protective mode.
Moxxi: See, just like I said. With that failsafe tripped, we can reboot and the laser will be all yours.
(Approaching power console)
Jack: Wait! DON'T press that button!
Moxxi: What's wrong?
Jack: If the eye starts acting weird again during the reboot, I don't want to be anywhere near it.
Moxxi: Thanks to the failsafes, it couldn't possibly do anything other than shut down.
Jack: Eh, we'll agree to disagree. Alright, let's get back to the command center. With Zarpe-nuts dead, we can reboot the laser remotely from there.
(Returning to Laser Command Center)
Jack: Alrighty – the bad guy's dead, we're about to save the moon, and the Vault full of cool-ass alien stuff is, apparently, already open. Just shut down the laser and we can get to the fun part – finding that Vault. I'll let you do the honors.
Hyperion: Reboot sequence activated. Command control reset. Rebooting in... Five... Four... Three... Two... Shutdown aborted. Invalid energy configuraton.
Jack: Oh, great, what now?
Roland: Jack... I'm sorry.
Lilith: I'm not!
Hyperion: Warning: singularity detected. (singularity erupts, pulling Jack and the Vault Hunters toward it)
Jack: Woah! What the hell?!
Moxxi: Good job, everybody.
Jack: What's Moxxi – w-what the hell are you doing?!
Moxxi: Betraying you. Trying to kill you. Two things I shoulda done a long time ago, you power-hungry psychopath.
Jack: What do you mean, Moxxi? How did you even –
Moxxi: I've been watching you, Jack. And behind that smile, behind that hero complex, there's something wrong about you. If you come down from Helios alive, a lot of decent people will live to regret it.
Jack: No no no NO NOOOO! Dammit, I TRUSTED you, Moxxi! Do you know what you've done?! You just killed us all!
Moxxi: Bye-bye, sugar. (Screen fades to white, and fades back in)
Jack: (coughing) Dammit. DAMMIT! The EYE! That was ONE OF A KIND! The things I could have DONE! Friggin' liars – friggin' COWARDS! They're no better than BANDITS!
