Man 1: All units, fall back to the shuttle bay.
Shepard: Right. At once.
Man 2: That's an impressive barrier, Octavia. Our file says you been working on a shield technology.
Octavia: It's a handheld but multicore solution. They call it barrier technology, jackhole. And it's pronounced, Oc--
Man 2: Why don't you come out peacefully.
Octavia: I don't know who you are but stay back!
Shepard: I'm Commander Shepard with the Alliance. I'm here to help.
Octavia: I didn't buy it from the last guy and I've got no reason to buy it now. This is a multicore shield prototype based on cyclonic barrier tech. It'll hold off your guns for hours.
Shepard: We don't have time for this. EDI!
EDI: Of course! Please remain still.
Shepard: Nice shield. Maybe the Alliance can use it, with a few tweaks. The biotic students are up there. Stay close. They'll get you out of here.
Octavia: Okay. Thanks.
Shepard: Looks like schematics for amp interfaces. Not as good as what we already have, but still worth a look.
Man 3: Target on the X.
Shepard: At once.
Prangley: The shuttle's right over there! Get over [inaudible 00:03:15]. Rodriguez's with me. Commander, behind you!
Shepard: The nest is up top.
Prangley: Everyone, take them down.
Kaylee: I'm on it.
Shepard: At once. Right.
Kaylee: The shields are almost ready.
Prangley: Everyone get to the shuttle!
Kaylee: Hurry, Commander! The Normandy has pulled the cruiser out of position. We need to leave now!
Shepard: Kaylee, How's it coming?
Kaylee: Shuttles are unlocked.
Shepard: Take the controls and get the students aboard.
Kaylee: Wait. Where's Rodriguez?
Shepard: She needs covering fire.
Prangley: Not gonna make it.
Shepard: Joker, we flew out on a Cerberus shuttle. What's your fire?
Joker: Right, I've got you on sensors. Should just be a minute.
Kaylee: Thank you, Commander. We'd have never gotten off that station if you hadn't come.
Rodriguez: Some of us didn't get off.
Kaylee: Jason Prangley came to Grissom when he was six years old. Barely spoke a word. He was so shy back then. To watch him grow up only to...
Rodriguez: He was always reading. Studying battles. I called him a brown noser.
Kaylee: Commander, I recommend we rethink the students' role. With their instructor dead, and ensign Prangley...
Shepard: Prangley didn't give his life so they could run and hide.
Kaylee: Commander! They just lost a friend.
Shepard: They lost a fellow soldier and they'll fight to honor his name.
Rodriguez: What the hell good is that? He won't be there!
Shepard: His memory will be. Use it! Get angry. Someday that anger will be the only ammunition you have left. And Jason Prangley's gonna save your life again.
Rodriguez: Understood, Commander.
Anderson: Shepard, damned if you aren't a sight for sore eyes.
Shepard: Good to see you, too, Sir.
Anderson: Sir? I may have reinstated you, but that doesn't give you permission to go all formal on me.
Shepard: Then I'm glad you managed to keep your ass alive, Anderson.
Anderson: That's more like it. Looks like you didn't waste any time getting work. I can only imagine what would've happened to those kids if they'd fallen into Cerberus' hands.
Shepard: I wish I could've gotten them all out of there.
Anderson: These students are some of the best humanity has to offer, and we're throwing them into battle! God damn it, I hate this war. Heckard didn't mention in his report...
Shepard: Kaylee Sanders is safe. She's with the recruits.
Anderson: Thanks, Shepard. When I heard about the attack... Well, I've already lost a lot of friends.
Shepard: She asked me to tell you to stay alive.
Anderson: Did she now? Well, thanks, Shepard. That might be the first good news I've heard this week. Anderson, out.
