Dialogue

Intro      

This dialogue happens when you enter the subway instance:

Rose White: It's all shut down, Kaidan-cho, everything, from the park to Orochi Tower...
Mei Ling: SDF quarantine. Good news for Tokyo, bad news for us.
Alex McCall: I thought the Dragon thrived on chaos?
Mei Ling: Someone once told me the Illuminati had all the answers.
Rose White: They're saying a bomb, it's never just a bomb.
Mei Ling: Something worse, something that brought the Filth with it.
Rose White: So we fight. That's what us Templars do.
Alex McCall: I enjoy a good fight, it's just these trousers are bloody velvet...
Rose White: Sara. Thank Gaia.
After trying to open the gate      
Person inside the gate: Open the gate!
Mei Ling: I'm trying! It's inside the electronics somehow, the Filth...

The person trapped inside it attacked and killed by Filth infected humans

Alex McCall: Fuck me!
Rose White: Oh my God.
As you're being attacked by filth humans jumping out of the vents      
Mei Ling: Watch out!
Alex McCall: How many have they got in there?
Rose White: It's gone viral so fast... If this gets out into Tokyo...
Alex McCall: It doesn't. We stop it here. Whatever it takes.
After the gate is opened      
Alex McCall: "Abandon all hope, ye who enter here."
Rose White: Thanks for the encouragement, Alex.
Mei Ling: Let's do this. Take it like all the other occult disasters, right?
Alex McCall: we really have to stop meeting like this.
Fighting the filth after going through the gate      
Mei Ling: Don't let it get on you, don't even breath in.
Rose White: It's reacting to us...like it knows we're coming.
Alex McCall: This stuff can't think. It's a cancer.
Before opening the second gate      
Alex McCall: New plan: fight chaos with chaos. Keep the bastards at a distance, then take them out.
Mei Ling: That's your plan?
Alex McCall: Well, it's a plan.
Rose White: You've got point, Sarah. Make every shot count.
When you regroup with the team      
Rose White: We're gonna need to use some heavier powers. Don't hold back, right?
Alex McCall: I was pacing myself.
After you purchase your passive abilities      
Mei Ling: Listen, Sara. You have to find Zuberi. We'll hold them here. Make a stand.
Rose White: I would kill for a strawberry smoothie...
After entering the subway cars to cross the tracks      
Zuberi: Ah. The cavalry has arrived.
Zuberi: Even where the Filth corrupts, Gaia's power endures. Take it into yourself. Breath it out. Will this broken body mended. (Gesturing to the injured Orochi agent)
After helping the injured Orochi      
Zuberi: Good. Good. But even Gaia will be tested by what is to come.
Rose White: Making a stand...wasn't working out.
Alex McCall: Yeah, about that...this ain't looking much better, to be honest.
Zuberi: Now is not the time for argument!
Mei Ling: Told you he would say that.
Before the Guardian of Dreams appears      
Mei Ling: Something's coming out of the ground!
Alex McCall: What the bloody hell is that thing?
After you kill the guardian and go up the stairs      
Rose White: They're not stopping!
Zuberi: And they will not stop. This is all to hold us back.
Alex McCall: Top marks for effort.
Mei Ling: Someone has to push through. This confusion may be all the time we have.
Rose White: Go! Go!
As the ceiling collapses      
Rose White: Look out! It's all coming down!


After Returning To Your Faction      
Dragon      
Hana: You must leave now.
Hana: They are asking for you.
Hana: I'm sorry you had to see...
Hana: I'm sorry.
Illuminati      
Dr. Zurn: Pineal gland...overstimulated, higher brain functions...functioning,
Dr. Zurn: that is great work, well above MK-ULTRA's success rate.
Dr. Zurn: Hey, can I ask you, have you ever seen a jaguar tripping?
Kirsten Geary: (through the computer) Zurn!
Dr. Zurn: Wow. Yes.
Dr. Zurn: Look it up sometime.
Dr. Zurn: Hey, you'd better haul ass to the Test Chamber. Jump through a few hoops.
Dr. Zurn: Oh, oh, and you may be feeling some discomfort from the microchip that I grafted to your spinal column.
Dr. Zurn: No worries, though. I me-mea-mean, it-it's...it's gonna fade... Really.
Dr. Zurn: And as your doctor, I'd caution you, strongly caution you,
Dr. Zurn: don't try removing it, okay?
Templar      
Woman: You look like you've just seen the end of the cosmos, mate.
Woman: (she helps you to your feet) I know the feeling. We're on the edge of it and it's time to play your part, seen?
Woman: Me and you, we're blood now, yeah?
Woman: Templars for the win and that.
Woman: Never mind. Looks like you've got some training to do before you're ready for your first kill.
Woman: You want to do what your letter says. Go speak with Sonnac at the Templars gaff.
Woman: It's not far, can't miss it.
Woman: Honest. It's unmissable.
