(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.


(Stalling)

Moxxi: The fusion reactor is behind a panel. Once you bring it out, it'll look like a series of red and blue canisters.


(Use reactor)

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.


(Destroy coolant)

Moxxi: Easy peasy!


(Destroy thermal charge)

Moxxi: Ouch.

  • 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.


(Use console)

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!


(Draining continues)

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.


(Draining continues)

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.


(Use elevator)

(Cutscene)

(Introduction screen - Colonel T. Zarpedon: To The Last)

(End Cutscene)

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?!

(Cutscene)

(Introduction screen - Colonel T. Zarpedon: One Death To Save Millions)

(End Cutscene)


(Kill Zarpedon)

(Cutscene)

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.

(End cutscene)


(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.

Jack: WOOOOOO!

  • 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.


(Use console)

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!
