Robot: Indoctrinated presence detected. Activating security protocol.
Shepard: You. You killed the scientists. What do you want?
Kai Leng: Your attention. Someone would like to talk with you.
Illusive Man: Shepard.
Shepard: How did you find this place?
Illusive Man: The archives, or did your Prothean expert miss that one?
Liara: Show yourself. I promise, I won't miss.
Illusive Man: Stick to your talents, Doctor T'Soni. You've helped uncover the key to subjugating the Reapers.
Shepard: Or destroying them.
Illusive Man: Damn it, Shepard! Destroying the Reapers gains us nothing.
Shepard: How about peace?
Illusive Man: They're just trying to control us. Think about it. If they wanted all organic life destroyed, they could do it. There would be nothing left.
Shepard: What the hell are you talking about?
Illusive Man: I know them Shepard. I know how they think.
Shepard: I think you've gotten a little too close to the enemy.
Illusive Man: No. I'm saying they've got it right. Why kill when you can control?
Shepard: I might have believed you once, but you've gone too far.
Illusive Man: Shepard you're out of your depth. There are choices coming that you're not equipped to make.
Shepard: I'm finishing the Crucible and I'm sending the Reapers back to Hell.
Illusive Man: I can't let you do that. Lang, the Commander has something I need. Please relieve her of it, and then bring me the data.
Kai Leng: Understood. You're slower than I imagined, Shepard. I've been hit! Cover me while I recharge!
EDI: Gunship approaching!
Liara: Get to cover!
Kai Leng: I've got this! The Salarian councilor died because you failed.
EDI: This organic must now die.
Kai Leng: Finally, a real fight. I need to recharge! Cover me!
EDI: At once.
Kai Leng: Shepard is mine now. You had your partner, Shepard. It's a pity the good ones never left. There's only one way this ends. Target the supports. Cerberus thanks you for all your hard work.
Liara: Shepard! Hang on.
Kurin: Anyone on this frequency? This is Lieutenant Kurin. My squad is trapped!
Shepard: This is Shepard. Give us your location.
Kurin: I repeat, is anyone on this frequency?
Shepard: We read you. Give me your...
Kurin: The Lieutenant's down. Our whole zone is collapsing. What happened to Shepard? Did they make it to the temple? I saw them, wait, I've got a Reaper inbound.
Soldier: Please, is anybody there? Oh Goddess, no!
Councilor: Commander Shepard, are you there? Commander?
Shepard: Councilor, the mission...
Councilor: Contact with Thessia has been cut off. When will the Crucible be ready to use?
Shepard: Councilor, I wish the news was better. We didn't get the information.
Councilor: Why not?
Shepard: Cerberus was there. We were defeated. We don't know how to finish the Crucible.
Councilor: I don't know what to say. What was the situation on Thessia?
Shepard: Deteriorating fast. The Reapers are there in strength.
Councilor: Then I should be going. Plans must be put in motion. Continuity of civilization has to be considered. I never imagined this day would come.
Shepard: None of us did. I'm sorry.
EDI: Asari forces are in full retreat. It is no longer safe for us to remain in this system.
Shepard: Get us out of here.
Liara: Shepard, I... Nobody could have predicted Cerberus would reach Thessia before us.
Shepard: To Hell with predictions. Thessia's lost and that's on me, as is the data on the Catalyst. I'm sick of Cerberus beating us to the punch.
James: Let's kick them in the balls for a change.
Shepard: I'm with James. Anyone know where they're hiding? Anyone?
Traynor: Well, there is something.
Shepard: Let's hear it, Traynor.
Traynor: I was able to track Kai Leng's shuttle through the relay and extrapolate his destination. But the signal disappeared in the Iera system.
Traynor: It's not just gone, though. The signal is being actively blocked.
Traynor: I'm not sure, but something is interfering with all signal activity in that region of space.
EDI: Commander, the Iera system is home to sanctuary and little else. Sanctuary is a supposed safe haven for war refugees.
Shepard: You think it's worth checking out, Traynor?
Traynor: Yes ma'am. I do.
EDI: If specialist Traynor hadn't examined the data so astutely, the interference would have been undetectable.
Shepard: If that's where Kai Leng went, then that's where we're headed.
James: It's not much of a lead, but I'm game if you are.
Shepard: It's a lead. We've come too far to let Cerberus screw us over. I want that Prothean data. I want the Catalyst. No excuses. Dismissed.
