Before start of quest
(Waking up in a snow-capped wasteland)
Claptrap: Great - another dead Vault Hunter. Handsome Jack's been busy.
Claptrap: Wait a minute - you're not dead! YES! Now I can get off this glacier! Claptrap, your metaphorical ship has finally come in!
Claptrap: Allow me to introduce myself - I am a CL4P-TP steward bot, but my friends call me Claptrap!
Claptrap: Or they would, if any of them were still alive. Or had existed in the first place! Oh - I've got something for you.
Claptrap: Here - take this ECHO communicator that I totally didn't loot from one of these corpses! It comes with a class-twelve heads-up display, complete with a minimap! Now – come, come, friend. Let’s get you inside.

Claptrap: Man, this is great! Now that I’ve met a mighty Vault Hunter, I can finally join the resistance in Sanctuary, take vengeance against Jack for killing my product line, and repair my central processor so I stop thinking out loud! I wonder what it’s like to have a belly button.
Unknown woman: I’ll explain everything soon, but know this – you’re alive for a reason, and I… am here to help you.
Claptrap: Well done! Your ability to walk short distances without dying will surely be Handsome Jack’s downfall!
Claptrap: Aaaaaand open!
Claptrap: Just a little added security. Gotta keep those Bullymongs at bay, or they’ll rip your eyes out!
Claptrap: Sorry about the mess. Everything Jack kills, he dumps here – bandits, Vault Hunters, Claptrap units… If I sound pleased about this, it’s only because my programmers made this my default tone of voice! I’m actually quite depressed!
Claptrap: Now, the creatures around here are dangerous, none more than this Bullymong named Knuckle Dragger – killed everyone I know. Anywho, I keep a pistol in the cabinet over there for emergencies, but in here, we should be pretty safe!
Claptrap: Ohohoh! Ohohoh! (Unsure) (Not Subtitled)
(Knuckle Dragger climbs down into Claptrap’s place from a hole in the ceiling and grabs Claptrap with its right arm.)
(Knuckle Dragger pulls out Claptrap’s “eye” and leaves the place through the same hole in the ceiling.)
Claptrap: MY EYE! AHHHHHH!
Start of “My First Gun”
(ECHO communicator: INITIALIZING… OBJECTIVE INDICATOR)
Claptrap: The gun. The gun in the cabinet.
(Unable to see, Claptrap knocks into various obstacles)
