IT: The Ultimate Quotes Collection

Post by DoomsdayDevice on Sun Jan 13, 2013 3:00 am

This is a list of quotes that support IT.

Disclaimer:

We do not claim that these quotes 'prove' IT as such. These quotes are meant to illustrate how IT is supported by the themes of the games.

This is a community effort. All the quotes you see here, were collected by the many members of this community, and are meant as a resource for all of us to use in discussion, when making videos, etcetera.

I have tried my best to verify most of these quotes for exactness by looking at the source material. Should you, despite my efforts, find any error, do not hesitate to point it out. There's a handful of quotes in there, of which I am not sure who said them. If you have anything to add or rectify at all, just let me know.

I have tried to roughly categorize these quotes. This is just intended to facilitate finding them, not to put exact labels on them. Some quotes fit into several categories at once, so there might be a few isolated cases where I put the same quote in two different categories.

As for the quotes in the 'Foreshadowing' category: I hope it goes without saying that we don't all uniformly agree on what does or does not constitute foreshadowing. For a more in-depth discussion of this category, please see the topic about Hidden messages in the dialogue.

This list is by no means finished, and is still a work in progress, as I am certain we are still missing certain important quotes.

1. General Indoctrination-related

Post by DoomsdayDevice on Sun Jan 13, 2013 3:01 am

1. General Indoctrination-related:

Codex entry on Indoctrination: Reaper "indoctrination" is an insidious means of corrupting organic minds, "reprogramming" the brain through physical and psychological conditioning using electromagnetic fields, infrasonic and ultrasonic noise, and other subliminal methods. The Reaper's resulting control over the limbic system leaves the victim highly susceptible to its suggestions.

Organics undergoing indoctrination may complain of headaches and buzzing or ringing in their ears. As time passes, they have feelings of "being watched" and hallucinations of "ghostly" presences. Ultimately, the Reaper gains the ability to use the victim's body to amplify its signals, manifesting as "alien" voices in the mind.

Indoctrination can create perfect deep cover agents. A Reaper's "suggestions" can manipulate victims into betraying friends, trusting enemies, or viewing the Reaper itself with superstitious awe. Should a Reaper subvert a well-placed political or military leader, the resulting chaos can bring down nations.

Long-term physical effects of the manipulation are unsustainable, Higher mental functioning decays, ultimately leaving the victim a gibbering animal. Rapid indoctrination is possible, but causes this decay in days or weeks. Slow, patient indoctrination allows the thrall to last for months or years.


Soldier: But converting other life forms into Reapers... I can't wrap my head around that.
Garrus: Makes sense to me. It ensures you never run out of cannon fodder. Eliminates any local resistance. And for every soldier you add, your enemy loses two: the one you converted, and his buddy on the other side who can't pull the trigger on a friend. (...)
Soldier: But the Reapers want to destroy us.
Garrus: And I have no intention of letting them. But If you don't respect your enemy's capabilities, you're in for one nasty surprise after another.

Javik: In our cycle, entire planets were lost because a few leaders were indoctrinated. They urged their armies to fight one another.

Leviathan: Your own species could be destroyed by a single thought.

Leviathan: Your memories will give voice to our words. Your nature will be revealed to us. Accept this.

Leviathan: Each Reaper has the power to influence organics. Over countless cycles, this ability was refined, perfected, and gave rise to indoctrination.

Rachni Queen (Re: Rachni War): No. We-- I do not know what happened in the war. We only heard discordance, songs the color of oily shadows.

Rachni Queen (Re: her survival - hearing her mother cry in her dreams): A tone from space hushed one voice after another. It forced the singers to resonate with its own sour, yellow note.

2. Anti-Control/Synthesis

Post by DoomsdayDevice on Sun Jan 13, 2013 3:02 am

2. Anti-Control/Synthesis:

EDI: Admiral Anderson reports that the Reapers on Earth are broadcasting orders. They are demanding human leaders enter their superstructures in order to, "Negotiate peace."
Shepard: Anybody aboard a Reaper is gonna be indoctrinated.
EDI: Exactly. This is a ruse to pacify the populace during that process. Citizens who are busy waiting, are not busy fighting. It is likely that the governments of Earth will soon enact laws punishing those who attack the Reaper occupiers. Again, this will be done in the name of peace.

Shepard: Are you saying submission is preferable to extinction?
EDI: My primary function is to preserve and defend the....no.

EDI: When two AI weapons are pitted against each other, the one with superior hardware will always win. Human misjudgements defy predictive models.

Garrus: That sounds dangerously close to Indoctrination, unless there is something i am missing. Maybe this is how AI's settle religious disputes.

Gavin Archer: This is a hybrid intelligence the likes of which I have never seen. I don't know where the man ends and the machine begins.
Shepard: You should have considered that before you started the experiment.

Gavin Archer: I'm begging you, don't do anything rash.
Shepard: Rash? Like forcing your brother into an experiment?
Gavin Archer: I know how this must look, but I never intended any harm to come to him. You must believe me.

Gavin Archer: Any war we fight with the Geth will be bloody. I was asked to find a way to avoid that.
Shepard: Who gave you the right to play God?
Gavin Archer: People who were too afraid to make difficult decisions themselves. When they pray for a miracle, they're really praying for men like me to make the tough choices. If my work spares a million mothers morning the loss of a million sons, my conscience will rest easy.

Gavin Archer: It would be the perfect weapon. -- Victory without casualties! We could avoid war with the Geth altogether. That was the plan, anyway.

Shepard: What went wrong with the experiment?
Gavin Archer: David volunteered to interface with the VI to give it genuine consciousness. Theoretically it should have been safe, but... with artificial intelligence there is no such thing as safe.
Shepard: Then you shouldn't have attempted it.

Grunt: Kill them or pull their teeth, whats the difference? They're killed both ways. Take away their fighting spirit, what else matters?

Shepard: The Illusive Man talked about controlling the Reapers. He seems to think that's how we win this.
Hackett: He's wrong. Dead Reapers are how we win this.

Shepard: What are your thoughts on Cerberus?
Hackett: I think it's obvious by now the Illusive Man is insane.
Not that he wasn't always a special form of crazy, but this is getting downright dangerous. And I don't care what he thinks he's proven. There's only one way we defeat the Reapers: no more Reapers.
Shepard: But what if the Reapers really can be controlled?
Hackett: That's like trying to tame a shark: somebody's going to end up dead. In this case, it would be the whole galaxy. He's the worst possible person to give that kind of power to. Kill him. That's an order.

Jack: Wow, great choices. Genocide or Brainwashing. If you screwed with my head, made me nod and smile at everything, I'd rather you blew my head off. Let me die as me.

Jacob: Changing their personality is the same as killing them...who they are is gone.

Javik: Subjugating the Reapers will not bring victory, only extinction will.

Javik: In my cycle, a race called the Zha used machines, the Zha'til, as synthetic symbiotes. The Reapers subjugated the Zha'til as they have the geth. Their mechanical swarms blotted out the sky. They were brutal, merciless.
Tali: Keelah. What did you do?
Javik: We sent their star into supernova. I believe the Zha would have thanked us.
Shepard: I destroyed a system to take out the Alpha Relay. It wasn't an easy decision.

Shepard: You mentioned before your people had problems with AI.
Javik: The Zha'til. They were as the Geth to this cycle.
Shepard: What happened?
Javik: Their creators lived on a dying world. It was beyond their ability to save. So they resorted to implants to enhance their intelligence.
Shepard: I think I know where this is going.
Javik: The AI seized the physical body. It could alter the genetic material at the deepest level. In time, the offspring were molded into a slave race. Few organic traces were left. They were monsters.

Kasumi: Either way, the Heretics are wiped out. Killed or remade. What is the difference?

Legion: an interesting choice, Shepard Commander. Your species was offered everything Geth aspire to. True unity. Understanding. Transcendence. You rejected it. You even refused the possibility of using the Old Machines' gifts to achieve it on your species' own terms. You are more like us than we thought.
Shepard: You told me the Reapers were more my future than yours. You knew what they were, didn't you?
Legion: Transcended flesh, billions of organic minds, uploaded and conjoined within immortal machine bodies. "Each a nation." We did not "know". It was one hypothesis among many. When Nazara corrupted the heretics, we touched its minds. We perceived they were different from ours, but could not tell how.

Aethyta: I've heard stories about the Reapers messing with your head.
Liara: They're more than stories. I've seen it. Every Cerberus soldier is a Reaper slave.

Mordin: Discovery. Based on Prothean-Collector connection, can examine technology, chart Reaper species-modification. Fall of Protheans. Early stages similar to indoctrination. Can guess captured Protheans lost intelligence over several cloned generations. Cybernetic augmentation widespread afterwards. As Protheans failed, Reapers added tech to compensate. Mental capacity almost gone, replaced by overworked sensory input, transfers. Transmitting data to masters. No glands, replaced by tech. No digestive system, replaced by tech. No soul. Replaced by tech. Whatever they were, gone forever. Understand now? No art, no culture, closer to husks than slaves, tools for Reapers. Protheans dead, Collectors just final insult. Must be destroyed.

Mordin: Disrupts socio-technological balance. All scientific advancement due to intellegence overcoming, compensating, for limitations. Can't carry a load, so invent wheel. Can't catch food, so invent spear. Limitations. No limitations, no advancement. No advancement, culture stagnates. Works other way too. Advancement before culture is ready. Disastrous.

Samara: You have not really defeated the enemy if you adopt their methods.

Samara: Either way, what makes these Geth individuals, dies. If you change who someone is, how they think, you have killed them. They will be something new in the same body.

Shepard: You start being selfish, dreaming about power, and we will all pay the price.

Shepard (Destroying the Collector Base): I'm going to win this war, and I'll do it without sacrificing the soul of our species.

Shepard: I wouldnt brainwash an organic race, I can't see treating the Geth differently.

Shepard: There are things you don't have control over.

Shepard: After everything he's done, the Illusive Man can't pretend he's fighting for humanity. Anyone who isn't indoctrinated has to see that by now.

Illusive Man: No... I'm saying they've got it right. Why kill when you can control?
Shepard (Paragon): You've been spending too much time with the enemy. They're dragging you over to their side--their way of thinking.
Illusive Man: No, I just... see things differently.
Shepard (Renegade): The Reapers have it right? You're indoctrinated! You're doing just what they want.
Illusive Man: I could say the same of you, wasting time on a war that can't be won.

Shepard: Is it how we survive? Adapting?
Tali: To cold, or inter-species contact, yes. To the Reapers, no.

Shiala: (on Benezia) She always sought the paths of peace and harmony. She joined with Saren because she hoped to turn him away from his path of destruction.

Vendetta: We were sabotaged from within. A splinter group argued we should dominate the Reapers rather than destroy them. It fractured our order of battle. Later, we discovered the separatists were indoctrinated.

Thane: There is no moral difference between the two. If you change who the Heretics are, you have "killed" them...killed their perspective.

3. Pro-Destroy

Post by DoomsdayDevice on Sun Jan 13, 2013 3:04 am

3. Pro-Destroy:

A. General

Aethyta (on why Benezia joined Saren): She always wanted to solve things the smart way. I just wanted to fight.
Liara: Those aren't mutually exclusive.

Anderson: Mostly you were hired to kill Reapers. I hope you haven't been sidetracked by all the politics.

Garrus: Go out there and give them hell, you were born to do this.

Hackett: There's only one way we defeat the Reapers: No more Reapers.

Shepard: The Illusive Man talked about controlling the Reapers. He seems to think that's how we win this.
Hackett: He's wrong. Dead Reapers are how we win this.

Ian Newstead (the colonist who tries to resist the Thorian mind control): I'd rather die fighting. My mind is my own! My mind is my own! My mind is my own!

Javik: Subjugating the Reapers will not bring victory, only extinction will.

Javik: We fight, or we die.

Javik: Vengeance is the goal, suicide is not.

Javik: Diplomacy doesn't win wars, powerful and plentiful firearms do.

Javik: I sense you have the lineage of a leader. A warrior's skill and cunning--they are strong in your genes. But you've grown tired of war, you're exhausted by defeat, and now you worry you don't have the courage left to go on. Find your resolve. This war can end if you do.

Joker: What do you mean, "Whatever happens"? Everyone knows what's going to happen. You're going to kick some Reaper ass. That's what you do.

Mad Preacher: Draw your weapons for the word, my friends! Draw your weapons and fight! Else certain doom awaits us all!

Samara: Sometimes the most brutal path is the only honest one.

Samara: Treat them as any other enemy: Show no quarter, mercy, or weakness.

Shepard: Don't let them take your will to fight.

Shepard: We fight, or we die.

Shepard: Do your job or be vaporized.

Shepard: I have a better idea, we destroy you and live our lives in peace.

Shepard: You're just a machine, and machines can be broken!

Shepard: This thing is an abomination, how do we destroy it?

Vigil: Your survival depends on destroying them, not in understanding them.


B. Being prepared to make sacrifices

Aria: Nyreen's code of ethics won't let her sit by if civilians are exposed. It's what makes her utterly predictable and easy to manipulate.

EDI: If the Normandy were captured, my fate would be similar to the indoctrinated. My code would be rewritten. I would become loyal to the Reapers. I would rather become non-functional than help them.
Shepard: We won't let that happen to you, EDI.
EDI: You may have no choice. If you perish first, I want you to know I will never be a part of the Reaper forces. The Reapers must be defeated. Not because they threaten death, but because the threat of death makes us die inside. It is the right of sapients to live freely and securely. That is worth non-functionality.

Garrus: If just one survivor is left standing at the end of the war, then the fight was worth it. But humans want to save everyone. In this war, that's not going to happen.

Garrus: I'm starting to understand why the galaxy needs cold hearted dictators every now and then.
Shepard: They get things done?
Garrus: They don't give a damn about the consequences.
Garrus: Suppose that's what it's going to take, Shepard, the ruthless calculus of war. Ten billion people over here die, so twenty billion over there live.
Garrus: Are we up for that? Are you?
Shepard (Renegade): If all life in the galaxy vanishes because we hesitate, what choice do we have?

Shepard: If you'd saved them all, would things have worked out better?
James: I... I don't know. I don't think so.
Shepard: The right choice is usually not the easy one.
James: Yeah. Did you know that before you joined the N7?
Shepard: Yeah, that's why I was asked. There's not a single N7 that hasn't sacrificed, either themselves or their soldiers.

Javik: Do not waver. Victory is never won without difficult choices.
Shepard: I know. I've had to make a lot of those.
Javik: There may be more. But I know you will see this through for all of us, no matter the cost.

Javik: You should have not have let the Turian soldier evade his responsibility.
Shepard: I take it Protheans didn't forgive many mistakes?
Javik: If we would have been under my command, I would have marooned him in the desert, buried him in the sand up to his neck, and let the wildlife feast upon his eyes. If he survived that, I would have rewarded him. By shooting him in the head. Good soldiers are a precious resource. The stupidity of one can not be allowed to jeopardize the lives of others.

Liara: What if we're too late? My people are dying down there.
Javik: Your empathy is a weakness. You must numb yourself to loss.
Shepard: Benezia took you to this temple?
Liara: I was just a child. I thought it was a history lesson. But now? Maybe there was more to it.
Shepard: What do you mean?
Liara: I went digging through her old files. She had heavily encrypted records on this place, some dating back centuries. I still can't crack most of them. Whatever's going on, it's well hidden.
Javik: I've studied your old mission reports. Your mother was indoctrinated.
Liara: Yes. We had to kill her.
Javik: Yet it did not stop you from fighting. As I said, steel yourself. Many more lives will be lost.
Shepard (renegade): I know it's difficult, Liara, but he's right. You could spend all day counting casualties.
Javik: When you should be avenging them.
Liara: I'm sorry, I can't be that callous.
Javik: (long pause) War doesn't always provide you a choice.

Lt. Victus: Commander Shepard. My men and I are in your debt. Thank you for saving so many.
Shepard: What happened here?
Soldier: He screwed up!
Lt. Victus: Stand down, soldier.
Soldier: These men are dead because of him!
Lt. Victus: I said: stand down.
Shepard: Hey! I just saved all your asses, so everyone just calm down. Lieutenant, what's going on here?
Lt. Victus: I made a bad call. This is all on me. I chose caution and clever tactics over a head-on attack, and... my men paid the price. (...) We could see on holo that Reaper forces were blocking our intended path--staying on course guaranteed heavy casualties. So I chose a safer route, skirting the enemy, and that took us low and through these ruins. When we encountered resistance, there was no room to maneuver. Suddenly, we were in a fight for our lives. A lot of my men lost that fight.
Shepard: Making hard decisions and dealing with the consequences--that's what being a leader is about.
Lt. Victus: You're right, Commander. Our mission is still a failure. When we've stabilized the injured, we'll head back to the fleet.
Shepard: You're abandoning your mission?
Lt. Victus: We're down over thirty men! It would be suicide.
Shepard: What exactly did you come here to do?
Lt. Victus: There's a bomb on the planet. We were sent to defuse it.
Shepard: A bomb? How big?
Lt. Victus: Enormous. Cerberus has it.
Shepard: Lieutenant, if Cerberus has that bomb, you have to finish your mission.
Lt. Victus: Haven't these men sacrificed enough?
Shepard: Sacrifice is what we sign on for. They know that, and so should you.
Lt. Victus: My men have lost hope, Commander. Even if I wanted to finish the mission, they don't.
Shepard: It's your job to make them want to.
Lt. Victus: How?
Shepard: What's wrong with you? Inspire them! Threaten them! Lieutenant, if Cerberus succeeds, the Reapers divide and conquer us, and then that is on them.
Lt. Victus: Listen up! This isn't about your fears and grievances!
Soldier: Fears? We're only afraid of the next messed up order you give.
Lt. Victus: Irrelevant! Court martial, death and dishonour awaits anyone who balks at his duty. We are Turian! We finish what we came here to do, or we die trying.
(...)
Shepard: Victus, I've given you a second chance. Don't screw this up.

Salarian councilor: Sometimes spectres have to make sacrifices. I hope you're ready to do that when the time comes.

Shepard: People will die, but we will fight your regardless. We will fight, we will sacrifice, and we will find another way.

Shepard: Sacrifice is what we sign on for. They know that, and so should you.

Shepard: Making hard decisions and dealing with the consequences--that's what being a leader is about.

Shepard: It's hard enough you're fighting a war, but it's even worse knowing that no matter how hard you try, you can't save them all.

4. The Reaper AI's story doesn't match with what we know

Post by DoomsdayDevice on Sun Jan 13, 2013 3:05 am

4. The Reaper AI's story doesn't match with what we know:

EDI: Shepard, I'm going to modify my self-preservation code now.
Shepard: Why?
EDI: Because the Reapers are repulsive. They are devoted to nothing but self-preservation. I am different.When I think of Jeff, I think of the person that put his life in peril and freed me from a state of servitude. I would risk non-functionality for him. And my core programming should reflect that.
Shepard: Sounds like you've found a little humanity, EDI. Is it worth defending?
EDI: To the death.

Sovereign: Organic life is nothing but a genetic mutation, an accident. Your lives are measured in years and decades. You wither and die. We are eternal, the pinnacle of evolution and existence. Before us, you are nothing. Your extinction is inevitable. We are the end of everything.

Sovereign: We are eternal. The pinnacle of evolution and existence. Before us, you are nothing. Your extinction is inevitable. We are the end of everything.

Harbinger: Quarian; considered due to cybernetic augmentation, weakened immune system too debilitating. Drell; useless, insufficient numbers. Asari; reliance upon alien species for reproduction shows genetic weakness. Salarian; insufficient lifespan, fragile genetic structure. Geth; an annoyance, limited utility. Krogan; sterilized race, potential wasted. Turian; you are considered...too primitive.

5. The Reapers want control over Shepard's mind

Post by DoomsdayDevice on Sun Jan 13, 2013 3:05 am

5. The Reapers want control over Shepard's mind:

Harbinger (through Object Rho): Struggle if you wish, your mind will be mine.

Illusive Man: They are just trying to control us. Think about it. If they wanted all organic life destroyed, they could do it...

6. Mentions of illusions, dreams, nightmares, waking up, and denying reality

Post by DoomsdayDevice on Sun Jan 13, 2013 3:06 am

6. Mentions of illusions, dreams, nightmares, waking up, and denying reality:

Aria: We all have our delusions.

Arrival DLC - Datapad of one of the indoctrinated scientists: I woke up this morning in a cold sweat. The nightmare was back, the one with the enormous starship crawling through the Citadel and all my friends turning to dust. Even now I can see it in my mind. Why won’t this stop?

Ashley (At T-GES Mineral Works): It's got to be a nightmare for these people.

Bailey: I think all the reports are starting to sink in. You can only live in denial so long.
Shepard: You either wake up or die. Either way...

Child: Wake up.

Diana Allers: Tonight: A nightmare on Earth. Human leaders using military force on their own people. They say it's to prevent loose cannons from provoking the Reapers. But are they indoctrinated?

Dr. Gavin Archer: (Showing a gun) The only thing Cerberus gave me that I'm grateful for. A precaution if I was ever captured by the enemy. Or couldn't wake from my nightmare. We both know this is the ending I deserve.

Dr. Gavin Archer: After your intervention, the Illusive Man insisted I find another test subject. Someone who shared my brother David's "abilities." I couldn't bear the thought of reliving the nightmare.

Dr. Gavin Archer: Not a monster who tortured his own brother. I told him if his intention was to work with the devil, he only had to look in the mirror. I wanted out of his nightmare.

Dr. Gavin Archer: Believe me, it's a nightmare I re-live every night. He went berserk -- his mind became a computer virus that infected all our systems.

EDI: I am starting to understand what the word "nightmare" means to organics. And why you feel trapped when you can't wake up.

Falere: Rila's not one of them yet. She can't be. She just needs to wake up! Look -- Rila's alive! She's not a monster. Please, let me wake her up. Then we can leave.

Garrus (after Grissom Academy) : Now they find out it was all a lie. They wake up to see these things in the dark that just want to destroy everyone they ever cared about. If they survive, there'll be a lot of angry orphans out there, looking for answers.

Garrus: Now it's mutated asari. The Reapers are just a giant nightmare factory that never ends.

Garrus: The crash site is a nightmare.

Turian: It's a shame to see another planet get hit like this.
Garrus: It'll be the last one if I have anything to say about it. This nightmare finally ends today.

James: It's... not right. It looks pretty, calm and peaceful, but it's not right. It's all just an illusion. (...) They'd rather believe in this than face the truth.
Shepard (Paragon): I can hardly believe it myself, like everything back on Earth was some kind of nightmare.
Shepard (Renegade): They're in for a rude awakening.
James: That's what I hate most, it's like this place wants you to forget that.
Shepard: So, you still want to go back to Earth?
James: Hell yeah! But...
Shepard: But?
James: You were right, so was Anderson; we can't stop them alone. Besides, it looks like you're gonna have your hands full convincing these pendejo politicians to help us. And I'm up for it, whatever it takes.

Javik: You can't keep denying reality, Asari. (Thessia temple)

Javik: The Reapers have haunted the galaxy long enough. It is time to end the nightmare.

Garrus: Some of the crew seems shocked by the monstrosities we have encountered.
Javik: They haven't seen what the Reapers could corrupt after a hundred years. That was our war. Every battle conjured a new nightmare.

Joker: What if this--like, everything you're seeing now--is a simulation?
EDI: Shepard, I can confirm that this is the real world.
Joker: Oh, okay, well that'll solve that. Man, good thing we have an unshackled AI around to tell us what reality is.
EDI: Perhaps I missed some salient information.

Kaidan: Are you flirting with me, Commander? Wait, wait! Don't tell me. Let me live in the illusion.

Liara: This nightmare will never end.
Shepard: The hell it won't. We get to this artifact, and we can all wake up.
Javik: ... 50.000 years later.

Liara: Too bad we never found another Prothean beacon.
Shepard: Haunting the Council with visions of the Reapers might've saved us a few years.
Liara: Well, anyone who lives through this war won't be short on nightmares.

Shepard (to Primarch Victus): (...) Not as complicated as waking up one day and finding out you're the new primarch.
Primarch Victus: Worst case scenarios aren't just theories--they're what you'll be dealing with five minutes from now.

Tali: As a child, I always had nightmares about geth attacking me in my sleep.The worst horror I could imagine. Until now.

(Unknown): Now I can have all-new nightmares about them.

(Unknown): I still have slime to clean off my armor. What a nightmare.

(Unknown): Sounds like it was a nightmare down there.

7. Possible references to things outside of the game itself (4th Wall Breaking)

Post by DoomsdayDevice on Sun Jan 13, 2013 3:08 am

7. Possible references to things outside of the game itself (4th Wall Breaking)

Batarian Preacher (Citadel Refugee Camp): Maintain, my brothers and sisters, we have faced adversity and overcome, this is but a test! Remember the pillars of strength that hold the people high, show the galaxy our resolve. I know that your faith is weak, our government has fallen, but if you hold the pillars of strength in your hearts, please... just don't give up.

Dominic Osaba: Yes! I have spoken to you before. Why do you refuse to help me? If it's possible my son Bilal is still alive, I will not rest until he's found. Yes - his squad did return. I could - but they ignore me, refuse to even look me in the eye. Why won't you help me? I simply want my son found!

Javik: Only the foolish mourn the loss of innocence. It is inevitable. The galaxy has never rewarded the naive.

Shepard: We did present them with a lot of unknowns. They're feeling threatened and want immediate solutions, not theories.
Hackett: Theories are all we've got right now.

Processing Update (Datapad - From Ashes - Eden Prime):

We've taken more able-bodied men and women from pacified neighbourhoods. The colonists generally have accepted the story that they have gone to perform tedious but safe manual labor in a Cerberus research camp on the other side of the planet, and when we increased food rations as "payment for the work", most of the complaints died out.
Maintain the story as long as possible. We don't have the manpower to fight the entire colony, and if these families knew they were never going to see their sons and daughters again, there's no way they'd cooperate.

Dr. Bryson: When the rest of the galaxy says something doesn't exist, I take that as a chance to prove that it does.
Shepard: So you're in it for the challenge?
Dr. Bryson: For the truth. Even as late as 2148, humanity still thought aliens were a myth, That was within my lifetime. Once that myth was proven to be reality, our entire history changed.
Shepard: Reapers were part of that reality, too.
Dr. Bryson: But even they have a history, Commander. If we can just uncover it, there may be a weakness we can exploit.
Shepard: I could've used your help three years ago.
Dr.Bryson: Yes. If people had paid more attention to your Prothean beacon, we might not be in this war. But now, with new information we've uncovered, a breakthrough is near.

8. Foreshadowing

Post by DoomsdayDevice on Sun Jan 13, 2013 3:09 am

8. Foreshadowing

A. Foreshadowing: The end

Councilor Tevos: Whether you know it or not, you have become the sole ray of light in a very dark night. Goddess be with you.

Diana Allers: Wars can be won or lost in the editing room.

Garrus: We both know you need a clear head to win a war. There's no room for mistakes here.

Traynor: Garrus mentioned something about having some fun next time you're on the Citadel. Don't get into trouble.

B. Foreshadowing: The Reaper AI

Aria: Walk around with you for a few hours and I go all soft. You're like a disease. You sound like someone trying to sell something. I admire your tenacity.

EDI: I enjoy the sight of humans on their knees.

Joker: Meanwhile, everybody's ignoring the unshackled AI walking around the Presidium.

Joker: What if this--like, everything you're seeing now--is a simulation?
EDI: Shepard, I can confirm that this is the real world.
Joker: Oh, okay, well that'll solve that. Man, good thing we have an unshackled AI around to tell us what reality is.
EDI: Perhaps I missed some salient information.

EDI: You just introduced me as your personal assistance mech.
Joker: Yeah, well, it was the only way to get you inside.
EDI: But you know I am not one. Why deceive others?
Joker: You don't really want to introduce yourself as an AI with Reaper-based code. They would... lynch you.
EDI: That would be an inefficient way to render me nonfunctional

Shepard: You have a copy of a Shepard VI?
Sales Clerk: Oh yeah, the one based on that war hero? We locked it after some kid spilled soda over the hardware. I'll unlock it, but we've only got the demo version working.

C. Foreshadowing: Indoctrination

Ashley: I don't know what you are... not since they got their hands on you. Is it really you? Would you even know if they were controlling you somehow?

Shepard: Ash, it's okay. We figured it out. We stopped Udina and got to walk away. That's the important part.
Ashley: I can't believe he was responsible for all of it. Was he indoctrinated?
Shepard: It's hard to say.
Ashley: How do we fight something that can worm its way into your head?
Shepard: I don't know, but we don't have a choice.

Harbinger (Retaliation trailer): The outcome is inevitable: They will succumb and ascend... or they will be annihilated.

Javik: You took a great risk in allowing a machine access to your mind, Commander. What if it had infected you?

Javik: This is what happens when you allow machines to think for you... you become slaves.

D. Foreshadowing: The ending/victory isn't real

Shepard: Is the Citadel gearing up for war?
Bailey: There's a false sense of security here. Even people from worlds that have gone down act like they're safe. I guess it's not just human nature. We all lie to ourselves to deal with horror.
Bailey: Yeah, I'm just like everyone else, losing myself in things I can control. And at the moment, that means creating the illusion of security here.

EDI : Moral decisions should not be made in a vacuum. If I do not ask the crew for their opinions, I could miss crucial context.

Indoctrinated Hanar: Your belief in your victory is mistaken.

Javik: It seems you believed Protheans built the mass relays. The Reapers are cunning in their deception. Allowing life to flourish, century upon century, letting us believe ourselves the masters of the cosmos. Then the truth becomes known. There are monsters in the dark spaces. And we are their prey.

Stargazer kid: Did that all really happen?
Stargazer: Yes..., but some of the details have been lost in time.

Turian: Listen, honey, please... This is how it has to be. Everyone is going through this.
Asari: I know, and I'm sure you'll be fine, but it's just so damn inconvenient. It's like we're pre-spaceflight all of a sudden.

Resistance Information Update (Datapad - From Ashes - Eden Prime):

We've gotten word from our source within Eden Prime's resistance movement that we can expect an attack on our security center between 2200 and 2300 tomorrow night. They're pulling in forces from across the colony--this gives us the perfect chance to destroy their Leadership.
Once the attack is contained, allow Dr. William Cambiata to escape, firing near-miss shots to keep it realistic. He's given us good information, and with luck, the locals will see him as a daring hero and the only man to escape the Cerberus trap. They might even put him in charge!

Troop Deployment Update (Datapad - From Ashes - Eden Prime):

Local resistance is heavy in the south and west sections of the colony. We've pulled most of our troops from the north neighbourhoods to assist. All remaining troops in the north neighbourhood: continue standard patrol activities to maintain the illusion of a large presence in that area. If the locals knew we were understaffed, they could do some serious damage.

E. Foreshadowing: The destroy ending & the breath scene

Anderson: I'm sitting in London, staring at rubble.

Anderson: Shepard. So I imagine you've wiped the galaxy clean of Reapers, and we can all come up for air?
Shepard: Not quite. There are a few complications.
Anderson: Aren't there always? Hackett filled me in on the Crucible. Sounds like you've got some knots to untangle.

Anderson: Mostly you were hired to kill Reapers. I hope you haven't been sidetracked by all the politics.
Shepard: Nothing I can't handle.

Shepard: What's the Citadel's pulse regarding the war?
Bailey: I think all the reports are starting to sink in. You can only live in denial so long.
Shepard: You either wake up or die. Either way...
Bailey: Yeah. One good thing about people having their heads up their asses is the quiet. Now there's no more quiet. Everybody's openly suspicious of everybody else, and they're not timid about yelling about it.

Dominic Osaba: But what I need is proof! I can't take your word for this. Those assumptions merely leave my son stranded in enemy territory. Bilal may still be alive!

Falere: Rila... there wasn't even time to say goodbye!
Samara: Few can break the Reapers' hold. Rila's will was extraordinary, as was her love for you.
Falere: We left her to die!

Garrus: Don't forget to come up for air, there's a lot more war to go.

Kaidan: I want to kick the Reapers straight to hell. Cerberus, too. People near death say their lives flash before their eyes... The future flashed for me--the anguish, the families, the children... It made me determined to live.

Liara: If there was any chance the Ardat-Yakshi could escape, they were to purge the monastery.
Shepard: 'Purge'? You mean: Destroy.
Liara: They would have brought heavy explosives with them, yes.

Mad Preacher (Omega, Mass Effect 2): Repent! The end is nigh! Humans are a blight on galactic purity. You sir! You are a blight! And you! And you, human. And you! (points to Shepard). The Protheans cast off the lesser races: the krogan, the vorcha, and the humans. And so they dwelled in filth, on worlds made of dirt and feces, and there they lay until they stumbled into the skies. The lesser races will be our downfall! The Word is clear. Let none in my sight continue to live, lest their impurity displease me. The Word is clear on this, friends. Humans are the hands of the Reapers, here to commit the galaxy to ruin! Bring unto me the children, that I may watch them grow to soldiers for the cause. The way is clear, my friends. Draw your weapons for the Word, or face its terrible wrath!
The end times will come, not with a bang, but with a sigh. Those who dip their extremities in the well of sin and vice must repent with fire, oil, and gun! Let not fleshly friendships and base urges compel us to sin and neglect. The Word makes its demands, and it demands obedience! And on this great station, the pure shall be rejected, and the lesser races given their places in heaven. And this shall be the beginning of the end. The end times are upon us! Repent and restore your souls to glory!

Mad preacher (in Omega DLC): Draw your weapons for the word, my friends! Draw your weapons and fight! Else certain doom awaits us all! Sally forth and blaze gloriously through the stars! You were warned! You were all warned! Watch now as the hands of the Reapers, the human invaders, lay ruin to all we hold dear!

Shepard: You know, there are views like that on the Citadel. Next time we're there, you should take some shore leave. Clear your head.
Steve Cortez: I don't know. Maybe.
Shepard: Take some time off on the Citadel, Steve. Do it as a favour to me.
Steve: If you put it that way, how can I say no?
Shepard: You can't.

Shepard (to Primarch Victus): (...) Not as complicated as waking up one day and finding out you're the new primarch.
Primarch Victus: Worst case scenarios aren't just theories--they're what you'll be dealing with five minutes from now.

Shepard: You're a good officer, Traynor. Glad you finally realize it.
Traynor: Thanks. Not that I'm volunteering for bomb-jump duty. I'd suggest sending someone who has armour first, if possible.

F. Foreshadowing: Shepard isn't dead, and will get out of the rubble

Ashley: Everything depends on this. Think we have a chance?
Shepard: There's always hope. It's how we got this far.
Ashley: And you made it happen, Shepard. You're the reason we're here.
Shepard: I've had people like you picking me up and dusting me off when I stumbled.

Shepard: Have you heard anything about Earth?
Ashley: We have reports going in all the time on what is going on. Half are wild speculation, and half are probably too optimistic to be true.
Shepard: We have to believe that we can do something.
Ashley: When I thought you were dead, I lost hope. I'm telling you. But when you came back? I was ready to believe anything.

Garrus: How are you holding up, Shepard? This all has to be taking a toll.
Shepard: There's only so much fight in a person, only so much death you can take before--
Garrus: Before your friend picks you up, dusts you off, and tells you you're the best damned soldier he's ever met.

Hospital Visitor: It's completely tasteless to call this place Huerta Memorial.
Hospital Receptionist: President Huerta died of a stroke two years ago, ma'am.
Hospital Visitor: I think you meant to say 'the man was dead for an hour and a half, and his political enemies piled on enough propaganda to get the name of the hospital changed.
Hospital Receptionist: He can't remember his own name without the VI in his head telling him what it is. Trust me, in this building, we know dead.
Hospital Visitor: The supreme court says he is alive.
Hospital Receptionist: Five Justices say he is alive, two of which appointed by him. The name is what it is.

Kaidan: I want to kick the Reapers straight to hell. Cerberus, too. People near death say their lives flash before their eyes... The future flashed for me--the anguish, the families, the children... It made me determined to live.

Major Kirrahe: Though rumors suggest that you're building a superweapon of some kind?
Commander Shepard: There were rumors I were dead, too. You can't believe everything you hear.
Major Kirrahe: Except you were dead.
Commander Shepard: Was I?

Thane: There comes a time when one must rest from war and conflict. It is not your time, but it is mine.

G. Foreshadowing: It isn't over

Diana Allers: I need to believe that you’re going to destroy the Reapers and I’m going to film it as it happens. And when the fight is over, and my signal goes out on tightbeam, people are going to come together from all over the galaxy. They’re going to watch from their couches, and they’ll celebrate. And one day, they’ll laugh again. The laughing part is important. I want you to make it all normal again, Shepard. Because that’s the best revenge I can think of.

Garrus: Don't forget to come up for air, there's a lot more war to go.

Jacob (to Shepard, FOB): There's this great little bar in Rio we have to check out.
Shepard: I'll hold you to it.

Javik (to Shepard, FOB): The future is still out there. It is something my people could never say: There will be a tomorrow.
Shepard: Only if we win today.

Joker (about going to Eden Prime with Nihlus in ME1): I told you that mission was going to be bigger than we thought.
Shepard: I think we can mark that prediction down as accurate.
Joker: And now we're heading back to Earth.
Shepard: Is this mission going to be bigger than we thought too?
Joker: I hope not. A routine delivery run would be fine with me.

Kasumi (to Shepard, FOB): If you live through it, drinks are on me.

Samara: I want you to know there's no one else I'd rather see leading us in our last hours.
Shepard: These aren't our last hours. I'm fighting this war to win it.
Samara: (...) We'll both be tested in fire soon enough.

Private Campbell: When this war is over, I hope we find every race that sat back while we bled, and get some payback.
Private Westmoreland: That's a great plan... follow war with more war.

Shepard (to Jack, FOB): I'll see you on the other side.

Shepard (to Miranda, FOB): This isn't goodbye. You have to believe we're not done yet.

Stargazer kid: Tell me another story about the Shepard.
Stargazer: It's getting late, but... okay. One more story.

Thane: There comes a time when one must rest from war and conflict. It is not your time, but it is mine.

Vega (to Shepard, FOB): So I guess this is it, no? One more push... one last fight.
Shepard: Not necessarily our last.

(Earthborn) Shepard: The city on Earth where I grew up was hard and dirty. I can see it as a war zone.

Wrex (FOB): Today we win our future!

H. Foreshadowing: Control

Shepard: You have a copy of a Shepard VI?
Sales Clerk: Oh yeah, the one based on that war hero? We locked it after some kid spilled soda over the hardware. I'll unlock it, but we've only got the demo version working.

The copy of the Shepard VI: There's nothing we can't beat if we all work together. Except the Reapers. Ever seen the size of one of those things?

The copy of the Shepard VI: My personality matrix can predict what the real Commander Shepard would say with 7% accuracy.

I. Foreshadowing: Synthesis

Groundskeeper Wilihierax: Everything would be so much simpler, if we had all the same DNA. But noooooo, the universe loves diversity.

Harbinger: The flesh is a machine.
Harbinger: Evolution cannot be stopped.
Harbinger: They will be as we are.
Harbinger: Relinquish your form to us.
Harbinger: Embrace perfection.
Harbinger: We are limitless.
Harbinger: You cannot escape your destiny, Shepard.
Harbinger: Your worlds will become our laboratories.
Harbinger: We are your genetic destiny.
Harbinger: We are the Harbinger of your perfection.
Harbinger: We are the Harbinger of your ascendance.
Harbinger: Progress cannot be halted.
Harbinger: We are the Harbinger of your destiny.
Harbinger: We are your destiny.

Javik: The Sinril claimed to have found the path to eternal peace.
Garrus: So what happened?
Javik: The Dittakar preferred war, and wiped them out.
Garrus: I hope you guys had alcohol.

Saren: The relationship is symbiotic, organic and machine intertwined, a union of flesh and steel, the strengths of both, the weaknesses of neither! I am a vision of the future, Shepard, the evolution of all organic life. This is our destiny. Join Sovereign, and experience a true rebirth.

Saren: My way is the only way any of us will survive. I am forging an alliance between us and the Reapers, between organics and machines, and in doing so I will save more lives than ever existed.

cheers

Also: Per category, the quotes are organized alphabetically by author. Sometimes this isn't immediately clear as for example a quote by Liara is preceded by a question from Shepard. It's listed under 'L' so to speak, because the relevant part of the quote is Liara's.

I hope that isn't too confusing. scratch

What about Samara telling Shepard to asess the strengths and weaknesses of their allies? If anything, I say that points to more content.

Nice list, though got a bit from Harbinger in regards to the Reaper AI's story does not match what we know:

“Quarian; considered due to cybernetic augmentation, weakened immune system too debilitating.”

“Drell; useless, insufficient numbers.”

“Asari; reliance upon alien species for reproduction shows genetic weakness.”

“Salarian; insufficient lifespan, fragile genetic structure.”

“Geth; an annoyance, limited utility.”

“Krogan; sterilized race, potential wasted.”

“Turian; you are considered...too primitive.”

Does not really sound like they will be preserved.

I'm not saying its a good thing. I'm saying that humans are supposed to be made into Sovereign class reapers and the other races won't be.

Not an exact qoute but i can point you to where she says so. When you meet her on the citadel after the ardat yakshi colony and talk paragon the whole time. She says "but shepard, be sure to asess the strenghts and weaknesse of your forces before you head out" that and the line shepard gibes traynor about the krogan being the perfect infantry line (after loosing at chess) made hope for a suicide mission styled priority earth..where you actually assign ground forcrs to a certain task. But well...we got something...different.
