Now the script guide of all 122 audio diaries. Enjoy!



		Welcome To Rapture - - Medical Pavilion (19)


1   Diane McClintock - New Year's Eve Alone

	Another New Year's, another night alone. I'm out, and you're stuck in
	Hephaestus, working. Imagine my surprise. I guess I'll have another
	drink... here's a toast to Diane McClintock, silliest girl in Rapture.
	Silly enough to fall in love with Andrew Ryan, silly enough to- *sound
	of a raid and people screaming* What... what happened... I'm bleeding...
	oh, god... what's happening...

2   Steve Barker - Hole in the Bathroom Wall

	Hey, Brenda- You care to tell me why you've had a hole in the wall the
	size of Plymouth Rock coming out of your crapper going on three weeks
	now? Now, I ain't saying I'm Shakespeare, but I'm trying to run a
	respectable theater. I got working folk coming in from Port Neptune
	trying to catch a little diversion... and all they can think about is
	the stink coming out your shitter. Get it fixed.

3   Diane McClintock - Released Today

	Dr. Steinman said he'd release me today. Ryan didn't come to see me
	since the New Year's attack. Not once. But Dr. Steinman was very
	attentive. He told me that once the scar tissue was gone, he was going
	to fix me right up. Make me prettier than any girl I've ever seen. He's
	sweet all right... and so interested in my case!

4   Steinman - Adam's Changes

	Ryan and Adam, Adam and Ryan... all those years of study, and was I ever
	truly a surgeon	before I met them? How we plinked away with our
	scalpels and toy morality. Yes, we could lop a boil here, and shave down
	a beak there, but... but could we really change anything? No. But Adam
	gives us the means to do it. And Ryan frees us from the phony ethics
	that held us back. Change your look, change your sex, change your race.
	It's yours to change, nobody else's.

5   Steinman - Higher Standards

	Adam presents new problems for the professional. As your tools improve,
	so do your standards. There was a time, I was happy enough to take off
	a wart or two, or turn a real circus freak into something you can
	show in the daylight. But that was then, when we took what we got, but
	with Adam... the flesh becomes clay. What excuse do we have not to
	sculpt, and sculpt, and sculpt, until the job is done?

6   Andrew Ryan - Parasite Expectations

	On the surface, the Parasite expects the doctor to heal them for free,
	the farmer to feed them out of charity. How little they differ from the
	pervert who prowls the streets, looking for a victim he can ravish for
	his grotesque amusement.

7   Tenenbaum - Love for Science

	I was at German prison camp only of sixteen years old when I realize I
	have love for science. German doctor, he make experiment. Sometime, he
	make scientific error. I tell him of this error, and this make him
	angry. But then he asks, 'how can a child know such a thing?' I tell
	him, 'Sometimes, I just know.' He screams at me, 'Then why tell me?'
	'Well,' I said, 'if you're going to do such things, at least you should
	do them properly.'

8   Steinman - Limits of Imagination

	I am beautiful, yes. Look at me, what could I do to make my features
	finer? With Adam and my scalpel, I have been transformed. But is there
	not something better? What if now it is not my skill that fails me...
	but my imagination?

9   Andrew Ryan - Vandalism

	It has been brought to my attention that some citizens have discovered
	ways to... hack the vending machines. I should not need to remind each
	and every citizen of Rapture that free enterprise is the foundation upon
	which our society has been established. Parasites will be punished.

10  Steinman - Surgery's Picasso

	When Picasso became bored of painting people, he started representing
	them as cubes and other abstract forms. The world called him a genius!
	I've spent my entire surgical career creating the same tired shapes,
	over and over again: the upturned nose, the cleft chin, the ample
	bosom. Wouldn't it be wonderful if I could do with a knife what that old
	Spaniard did with a brush?

11  McDonagh - Freezing Pipes

	Steinman, I know Medical Pavilion is your manor, but you might want to
	cogitate on this: ocean water is colder than a witch's tit. You don't
	heat the pipes, the pipes freeze. Pipes freeze, pipes burst. Then
	Rapture leaks. Now, I realize you're a posh sort of geezer, and,
	frankly, I don't give a toss if you piss or go fishing. But once Rapture
	starts leaking, the old girl's never gonna stop. And then I'll be sure
	to tell Ryan he's got you to thank.

12  Suchong - Testing Telekinesis

	Clinical Trial Lot 23 Dr. Suchong/Client Fontaine Futuristics. Work on
	telekinesis plasmid proceeding well. Lifting objects at distance present
	no problem. Moving objects through space, no problem. Cannot stop
	speeding bullet, but can catch and throw fast moving object. Problem not
	with plasmid. Problem with reaction time. ...Suchong just get new idea
	for plasmid.

13  Tenenbaum - Useless Experiments

	At the German prison camp they put me to work on genetic experiments on
	other prisoners. They call me 'Das Wunderkind', the wonder child.
	Germans, all they can talk about is blue eyes, and shape of forehead.
	All I care about is why is this one born strong, and that one weak?
	This one smart, that one stupid? All that killing, you think the Germans
	could have been interested in something useful?

14  Suchong - Enrage Trial

	Clinical Trial Lot 44 Dr. Suchong/Client Fontaine Futuristics. Subject
	is white male, one Roland Wallace. Can you hear me, Mr. Wallace? 'Yes
	sir, Mr. Suchong, sir' Very well. Right, I'm introducing lot 44 now...
	We've codenamed Lot 44 'Enrage' because of its tendency to... *Mr.
	Wallace starts screaming* Nurse, hold him down... nurse! Nurse!!!

15  Steinman - Symmetry

	Today I had lunch with the Goddess, 'Steinman,' she said... 'I'm here to
	free you from the tyranny of the commonplace. I'm here to show you a new
	kind of beauty.' I asked her, 'What do you mean, goddess?' 'Symmetry,
	dear Steinman. It's time we did something about symmetry...'

16  Steinman - Aphrodite Waking

	Aphrodite is walking the halls - shimmering, like a scalpel...
	'Steinman,' she calls, 'Steinman! I have what you're looking for! Just
	open your eyes!' And when I see her, she cuts into me a thousand
	beautiful pieces.

17  Steinman - Not What She Wanted

	Steinman: Four-oh silk and ...done.
	Nurse: The nose looks terrific, Doctor Steinman ...Doctor?
	Steinman: You know, looking at it now... I didn't realize how much her
		face sags... Scalpel...
	Nurse: Excuse me?
	Steinman: Scalpel!
	Nurse: Uh, doctor, she's not booked for a face lift...
	Steinman: Let's just come in here and... *starts whistling*
	Nurse: Doctor... Stop cutting... Doctor, stop cutting... Get me the
		chief of surgery! Get me the chief of surgery NOW!!!

18  Steinman - Gatherer's Vulnerability

	Not only are those little girls veritable Adam factories, they're nearly
	indestructible. They regenerate any wounded flesh with stem versions of
	the dead cells. But their relationship with the implanted slugs is
	symbiotic... if you harvest the slug, the hose will die. 'So you see
	it's not like killing,' Tenenbaum said. 'It's more like removing a
	terminal patient from life support.'

19  Suchong - Plasmids are the Paint

	Tenenbaum... sometimes I pity the little freak. Such a tiny
	imagination... Content to sit there with her tanks of Adam, tweaking
	and optimizing. I need to create... Adam is a canvas of genetic
	modification... but plasmids are the paint.


		Neptune's Bounty - - Smuggler's Hideout (22)


20  Sullivan - Bathysphere Keys

	We're putting all the bathyspheres in lockdown until further notice.
	Ryan had us install some kinda genetic device into the things so only
	Ryan and his inner circle will be able to use 'em without dispensation.
	But the boys tell me the keys are pretty unreliable. Sisters, cousins-
	anybody in the ballpark genetically will be able to come and go as they
	see fit.

21  Sullivan - Timmy H. Interrogation

	Sullivan: Mr. Ryan asked me personally to make this clear to you. You
		give us Fontaine, and this whole filthy ring of his, and you'll
		be knocking back pints up at the Fighting McDonaghs. But if you
		prefer to play the mule... we'll treat you like a mule... Give
		him a taste, Patrick... *Timmy screams from electrocution*
	Sullivan: Oh, what's that? Change of heart, Timmy? Timmy? Ready to talk
	Timmy H: Go on, Sullivan... go on and do your dirty! ...whatever Ryan
		thinks he can do to me, Fontaine can do double!

22  Andrew Ryan - Fontaine Must Go

	Something must be done about Fontaine. While I was buying buildings and
	fish futures, he was cornering the market on genotypes and nucleotide
	sequences. Rapture is transforming before my eyes. The Great Chain is
	pulling away from me. Perhaps it's time to give it a tug.

23  Tenenbaum - Finding the Sea Slug

	I saw one of the smugglers having a game of catching on the docks today.
	And this surprised me, because his hands were crippled during the war.
	He was unloading the barge the other day when he was bitten from this
	sea slug. He woke up the next morning and he found he could move his
	fingers for the first time in years. I asked him if he still had that
	sea slug. As luck would have it, he did...

24  Sullivan - Picked Up Timmy H

	Now the eggs are in the scramble. We picked up Timmy H, right after
	midnight. Either Ryan'll be taking down Fontaine, or Fontaine'll be
	taking down Ryan. We'll be 'interviewing' poor Timmy 'neath Fontaine
	Fisheries... if you're up for entertainment, the code's 5380.

25  Marista Lutz - Masha Come Home

	Darling Masha- We don't know what has happened to you... Ryan's men have
	taken you away and said you are needed to save Rapture. Who needs a
	child to save a city? But I see these little girls crawling out of these
	vents, and I only wonder if you might one day crawl out of this vent and
	find this note. We look for you, but if you find this, come to us at the
	fighting McDonaghs in room #7. The code to our room is 7533. We miss
	you, our darling child.

26  Andrew Ryan - Watch Fontaine

	This Fontaine fellow is somebody to watch. Once, he was just a menace,
	to be convicted and hung. But he always manages to be where the evidence
	isn't. He's the most dangerous type of hoodlum... the kind with vision.

27  Sullivan - Have My Badge

	Hanging now, is it? That's what we've come to? Now look, I don't make
	the laws here, I just enforce them. But I didn't come to Rapture to
	string men up for running contraband. If Ryan and his crew have their
	law, then they can have my badge.

28  Tenenbaum - Adam Discovery

	This little sea slug has come along and glued together all the crazy
	ideas I've had since the war... if doesn't just heal damaged cells,
	it... resurrects them... I can bend the double helix... Black can be
	reborn white, tall short. Weak, strong... But the slugs alone are not
	enough... I'll need money... and one other thing...

29  McDonagh - Eden Leaking

	If things weren't bad enough, it seems that even our water system's
	sprung a leak. Yep, that's right. The irrigation system in Arcadia is
	taking on sea water. I told Mr. Ryan when we were building this place
	that either you build her like a bath tub, or she's gonna turn into a
	sewer. No, McDonagh, he said, we're not gonna build no bathtub... we're
	gonna build Eden.

30  Tenenbaum - Fontaine's Smugglers

	As the respectable labs have all turned me away, I have turned to
	Fontaine's smugglers in Port Neptune for supplies. Fontaine's men are
	pigs. They spit, they stink. But they deliver and they don't ask
	questions. They're all terrified of Fontaine... he reminds me a bit of
	the Germans- so efficient. It wouldn't surprise me if he were soon
	running things down here.

31  Andrew Ryan - Death Penalty in Rapture

	The death penalty in Rapture! Council's in an uproar. Riots in the
	streets they say! But this is the time for leadership. Action must be
	taken against the smugglers. Any contact with the surface exposes
	Rapture to the very Parasites we fled from. A few stretched necks are a
	small price to pay for our ideals.

32  McDonagh - Meeting Ryan

	I met Ryan the day me and the lads were installing the bathroom plumbing
	up in his posh Park Avenue digs. 'Oi!' says he, 'what's with all the
	brass fittings? General contractor had me down for the tin.' 'Well,' I
	says, 'I supposed it's the contractor then who'll be bailing out your
	loo once a fortnight, is it? If it's price you're worried about, I'll be
	picking up the brass, so not to worry, squire.' 'And why would you be
	doing that,' says he? 'Well, Mr. Ryan, profit or not, no man bails
	water out of privies built by Bill McDonagh.' The next day I finds out,
	I'm Ryan's new general contractor.

33  Sullivan - Smuggling Ring

	I'm closing in on the whole ring. I'd pat myself on the back, but let's
	face it... these aren't exactly bloodthirsty desperadoes we're talking
	about. Rapture's full of poets, artists, and tennis players, not hired
	gorillas. But this leader of theirs, this Fontaine... he seems to know
	his way around a grift. He keeps his nose clean, but not so clean that
	the right people don't know he's not to be trifled with...

34  Andrew Ryan - Working Late Again

	Diane, my dear I'm sorry but I'll be late again tonight... Rosenberg is
	demanding to speak about this Fontaine business. I'm trying to build a
	proper financial market and this idiot keeps going on about Adam this
	and genetic modification that. I'll go spend an hour pretending to pay
	attention to the poor fellow and be home as soon as I can. -Andrei

35  McDonagh - Rapture Changing

	Rapture's changing, but Ryan can't see the wolves in the woods. This
	Fontaine fellow... he's a crook and a proper tea leaf, but he's got the
	ADAM, and that makes him the guv'nor. He's sinking the profits back
	into bigger and better plasmids, and building them Fontaine
	Poorhouses... more like Fontaine recruiting centers... 'Fore we know it,
	Bloke's gonna have an army of splicers, and we're gonna have ourselves
	a whole heap of miseries.

36  Marista Lutz - Saw Masha Today

	We saw our Masha today. We barely recognized her. That's her, Sam said.
	You're crazy, I told him. That thing? that, that is our Masha? But he
	was right. She was drawing blood out of a corpse by Fontaine Fisheries,
	and when she was done, she walked off hand in hand with one of those
	awful golems. Masha!

37  McDonagh - Arresting Fontaine

	Mr. Ryan... I believe in Rapture. But that doesn't mean we always win.
	Fontaine Futuristics is the biggest thing going in Rapture. So let me be
	plain: when we arrest that toerag Fontaine for his thieving and
	smuggling, we must make it clear that we won't touch his business
	interests. We sit on the council because these poor sods trust us... not
	because God gave us a chair.

38  Peach Wilkins - Putting the Screws On

	Fontaine's putting the screws on us, and double. He's squeezing us out
	80 points of our cut with the threat of turning us in to Ryan if we
	don't play ball. Son of a bitch. Sammy G. comes and tells me he's
	thinking of going to the constable, and the next day, Sammy G. was found
	in a sack in the salt pond. We got no choice here. We stay on Fontaine's
	crew, we're gonna catch the gallows. We take a powder, and we end up
	like Sammy G. There's gotta be another way...

39  Peach Wilkins - Meeting With Fontaine

	We all come down here, figured we'd all be part of Ryan's Great Chain.
	Turns out Ryan's chain is made of gold, and ours are the sort with the
	big iron ball around your ankle. He's up in Fort Frolic banging fashion
	models... we're down in this dump yanking guts outta fish. Fontaine's
	promising something better. He's like one-a us, you know, like he's
	worked a day in his life. He says meet him at his fish-packing joint at
	11. I'll go, bring a couple of guys. Hey, it's not like things could get
	a lot worse.

40  Frank Fontaine - Kraut Scientist

	Spent the morning jawing with that Kraut scientist. She's damaged goods,
	all right. Just like all those chumps they scraped out of them prison
	camps. But she's no crackpot... she's gonna make me the kinda scratch
	that'll have Ryan look like he's runnin' a paper route. She just needs
	some supplies to get the ball rolling... and a friend to watch her back.

41  Peach Wilkins - Offered a Deal

	The Irish porkpie offered me a deal. I flip 'em Fontaine, and I walk out
	of here. That simple. How do I know that fat fuck isn't Fontaine's guy?
	How do I know they're not all Fontaine's guy? Fontaine's got Adam and
	everybody wants it. Ryan's got a whole lot of talk and a nice suit. Even
	down here, any idiot can see which way the wind is blowing.


		Arcadia - - Farmer's Market (25)


42  McDonagh - Seeing Ghosts

	Seems like some poor blighters have started seeing ghosts. Ghosts! Ryan
	tells me it's a side effect of this plasmid business. One poor sod's
	memories getting passed on to another through genetic sampling. Leaks.
	Lunatics. Rebellion. And now bleeding ghosts. Ain't life in Rapture

43  Langford - Arcadia Closed

	Today Arcadia was closed off to all but paying customers. The man hires
	me to build a forest at the bottom of the ocean, and then turns a walk
	in the woods into a luxury. Ryan asked 'Should a farmer not be able to
	sell his food?' 'Is a potter not entitles to a profit from his pots?' I
	started to argue with the man and then I remembered who signed my
	checks. Only thing worse than a hypocrite is an unemployed one.

44  Dieter Sonnekalb - Big Night Out

	What a night I got lined up. Everything's ready. Flowers, bottle of
	wine, even two tickets to the Tea Garden. Nothing gets the betties in
	the mood like nighttime in Arcadia. Now I just gotta stop by the Thrifty
	Care to pick up a med hypo, just to be safe. Word is this ain't
	Angelina's first visit to the Tea Garden...

45  Tenenbaum - Mass Producting Adam

	The augmentation procedure is a success. The slugs alone could not
	provide enough Adam for serious work. But combined with the host... now
	we have something. The slug is embedded in the lining of the host's
	stomach and after the host feeds we induce regurgitation, and then we
	have twenty, thirty times the yield of usable Adam. The problem now is
	the shortage of hosts. Fontaine says, 'Patience, Tenenbaum. Soon the
	first home for Little Sisters will be open, and that problem will be

46  Andrew Ryan - The Market is Patient

	There has been tremendous pressure to regulate this plasmid business.
	There have been side effects: blindness, insanity, death. But what use
	is our ideology if it is not tested? The market does not respond like an
	infant, shrieking at the first sign of displeasure. The market is
	patient, and we must be too.

47  Langford - Early Tests Promising

	Yes yes yes, I KNOW about the lockdown. It's absurd. Just give me a
	minute! The early Lazarus tests are very promising. If the Rosa Gallica
	bloom, then by God I'll know we're in business... Man in background:
	'Hurry! The lockdown!!' Hm? Oh all right! I'm leaving! But somebody has
	to find a way to come back to check on these samples. They're very

48  Andrew Ryan - Offer a Better Product

	Gregory, don't come whining to me about market forces. And don't expect
	me to punish citizens for showing a little initiative. If you don't like
	what Fontaine is doing, well, I suggest you find a way to offer a better

49  Diane McClintock - Heroes and Criminals

	I couldn't believe how much things had changed since I left Dr.
	Steinman's office. It's like I don't even recognize Rapture no more. I
	hear they've been rounding up people in 'pollo Square... I asked Ryan
	how could he do such things to innocents. He said, 'Innocents? If they
	haven't chosen to defend Rapture, they've chosen to side with Atlas and
	his bandits. So there are no innocents. There are heroes, and there are

50  Mariska Lutz - Shouldn't Have Come

	The minute  we came here, Masha started screaming, 'Mama! Mama! What is
	that? What is that!?' I thought she was having some kind of seizure and
	then I realized... trees... trees! Never saw one before, thought they
	were monsters. Oh, Sammy, maybe we never should have come to this

51  Langford - The Saturnine

	They dress up in leaves and call themselves the Saturnine. Please. They
	drink human blood, and chant- 'Harness the flame, Harness the mist!' and
	believe they are touched by the ancient gods. Hah. An aging bunch of
	frat boys, tilting back goblets of plasmids and calling it ambrosia.

52  Langford - Arcadia and Oxygen

	Now I'm a woman of science, but I'm also a woman who's not afraid of
	turning a buck or two. Ryan said if I could boost profits in Arcadia,
	part of the up would ride on my hip. So I get to thinking, we're paying
	for oxygen when we got photosynthesizing trees... Hell, we can even sell
	the extra to the rest of the city and undercut the other guys. Ryan will
	like that for sure- Fontaine's people have moved into the O2 biz tooth
	and claw.

53  Langford - What Won't They Steal

	Isn't there anything in this damn place those pagans won't steal? Paper
	towels, ink pots, witch hazel, chlorophyll solution, even my back issues
	of National Geographic. They're feathering their disgusting little
	shrines with it, I suppose. Sick bastards

54  Langford - Teaching an Old Hound

	Who says you can't teach an old hound new tricks? This baffy plant woman
	spends four years coming up with ways to defoliate trees in the Pacific
	to scare out the Japs and now here I am down at the bottom of the
	Atlantic trying to figure out how to do the same thing in reverse. Adam,
	Adam, Adam... It's bathtub gin, times the atom bomb, times Eve with the
	serpent. Let's go see what it can do.

55  Langford - Lazarus Vector

	I've been killing trees for twenty-five years. At Berkeley, back in the
	20's. On the Japs at Iwo Jima. But I never brought one back from the
	grave before. I did, Becky. Momma's gonna build her first damn
	Frankentree. I'm gonna call my little creating 'The Lazarus Vector.'
	Maybe it'll bring the old gal's career back from the dead as well...

56  Langford - Lazarus Vector Formula

	What's the point of being a damn genius if the only ones around to
	appreciate it are a bunch of spliced up morons? I've cracked the Vector,
	or at least I'm 99% certain I have. I just need a bud of Rosa Gallica to
	confirm my analysis. Distilled water, a bit of chlorophyll, and enzymes
	extracted from Apis Mellifera. That's right, sweethearts: honeybee spit.

57  Tenenbaum - Maternal Instinct

	What makes something like me? I look at genes all day long, and never do
	I see the blueprint of sin. I could blame the Germans, but in truth, I
	did not find tormentors in the Prison Camp, but kindred spirits. These
	children I brutalized have awoken something inside that for most is
	beautiful and natural, but in me, is an abomination... my maternal

58  Tasha Denu - Bee Enzyme

	Julie, my dear, I am trying to run a business here. You wanna spend time
	with my honey bees, well, I'm gonna have to start charging you for the
	pleasure. If I come out one more time and find you lolling out there
	amongst my hives, I'm grabbing my shotgun. As to your question, yes, my
	days in beekeeping school are a blur, but I do seem to remember
	something about that enzyme you keep blabbing on about.

59  Andrew Ryan - Pulling Together

	The children with their very long needles, their tuneless songs, their
	ghastly errands. Their ghoulish, Frankenstein fathers. But, we've all
	placed our hand on the Great Chain of endeavor. My hand is on it,
	Fontaine's is on it- We all pull it and are pulled by it. Yes, these
	children are an abomination. But it is not my hand alone on the chain
	that created them. No. Their little fingers were right there, next to

60  Andrew Ryan - First Encounter

	On my walk today I had my first encounter with a pair of them... he, a
	lumbering palooka in a foul smelling diving suit, and she, an unwashed
	moppet in a filthy pink smock. Her pallor was off, green and morbid, and
	there was a rather unpleasant aspect to her demeanor, as if she were in
	an altogether different place than the rest of us. ...I understand the
	need for such creatures, I just wish they could make them more

61  Tenenbaum - Hatred

	One of the children came and sat in my lap. I push her off, I shout,
	'Get away from me!' I can see the Adam oozing out of the corner of her
	mouth, thick and green. Her filthy hair hanging in her face, dirty
	clothes, and that dead glow in her eye... I feel... hatred, like I never
	felt before, in my chest. Bitter, burning, fury. I can barely breathe.
	And suddenly, I know, it is not this child I hate.

62  Andrew Ryan - Desperate Times

	Doctor Suchong, frankly, I'm shocked by your proposal. If we were to
	modify the structure of out commercial plasmid line as you propose, to
	have them make the user vulnerable to mental suggestion through
	pheromones, would we not be able to effectively control the actions of
	the citizens of Rapture? Free will is the cornerstone of this city. The
	thought of sacrificing it is abhorrent. However... we are indeed in a
	time of war. If Atlas and his bandits have their way, will they not turn
	us into slaves? And what will become of free will then? Desperate times
	call for desperate measures.

63  Pierre Gobbi - Water in Wine

	In ten years in this dump, I've come to accept a very low standard of
	life. But even at the bottom of this fish tank, a man must have
	standards. The pathetic frou du cul down at Worley Winery has started
	putting water to his terrible wine... water!!! When I confronted him
	with this fact, he tells me, 'Pierre, this is not to worry, the water,
	she is distilled. It would be worse... I would take it right from the

64  Tenenbaum - Adam Explained

	Adam acts like a benign cancer, destroying native cells and replacing
	them with unstable stem versions. While this very instability is what
	gives it its amazing properties, it is also what causes the cosmetic and
	mental damage. You need more and more Adam just to keep back the tide.
	From a medical standpoint, this is catastrophic. From a business
	standpoint, well... Fontaine sees the possibilities.

65  Tenenbaum - Functional Children

	The children must remain functional to be effective producers of Adam. I
	had hoped we place them into vegetative state, so they would be more
	pliable. I find being around them very uncomfortable. Even with those
	things implanted in their bellies, they are still children. They play,
	and sing. Sometimes they look at me, and they don't stop. Sometimes
	they smile.

66  Andrew Ryan - The Great Chain

	I believe in no God, no invisible man in the sky. But there is something
	more powerful than each of us, a combination of our efforts, a Great
	Chain of industry that unites us. But it is only when we struggle in our
	own interest that the chain pulls society in the right direction. The
	chain is too powerful and too mysterious for ant government to guide.
	Any man who tells you different either has his hand in your pocket, or a
	pistol to your neck.


		Fort Frolic (15)


67  Diane McClintock - Stood Up Again

	Stood up! Again... Second time this week. Ever since my face was...
	Steinman worked on me, but it was never the same since the blast...
	Being alone so much gives a girl time to think. Who could hate me so
	much they'd ruin me like this? What did I do to them? I keep thinking of
	all them bandits and terrorists Ryan's got locked up in 'pollo Square
	and I get so mad... sometimes I can hardly breathe... if I could only
	confront them, tell them what they did to me, how they're ruining
	everything for me, for Rapture... maybe I'd... well, maybe I'd feel

68  Sander Cohen - Musical Insult

	Regarding your review of Anna Culpepper's latest musical insult: Of all
	of the worthy artists in Rapture, why you continue to devote column
	inches to this musical gremlin is beyond my imagination. Where she is
	not derivative, she's boring. Where she's not boring, she's obvious.
	Where she's not obvious, she's dangerous.

69  Cobb - Come to the Record Store

	You wanna lock us in, old man? Oh, that's fine with Cobbsie. I used to
	love you. I Used you to think you were a musical genius. You know why?
	Because you paid my rent, you ancient hack! Come on to the record store,
	I'll show you what I think of your plinkily, plink, plink!

70  Sullivan - Artist's Feud

	I worked the meatball beat in Little Italy, and even I'm shocked at the
	cold blood that oozes out of these artistic types. This broad Culpepper
	and that fruitjob Cohen are in some kind of feud, and Cohen's lookin'
	for MY security detail to pick sides. The next thing I know I get called
	into Ryan's office to talk about the whole mess. Goddamn nutjob artist.

71  Sander Cohen - The Wild Bunny

	The Wild Bunny by Sander Cohen: I want to take the ears off, but I
	can't. I hop, and when I hop, I never get off the ground. It's my curse,
	my eternal curse! I want to take the ears off but I can't! It's my
	fucking curse! I want to take the ears off! Please! Take them off!

72  Albert Milonakis - Fancy Cigarettes

	Some hired Betty tried to sell me on those fancy Oxford Club ciggies.
	Mmm- no thanks. I told her, I'm a Nico Time man, always will be. Why?
	They smoke good, and don't cost half a damn. Who cares if the things are
	made out of sea shells and fish eggs?

73  Sander Cohen - The Doubters

	Rapture's going to hell, and why? Because of them... always behind the
	scenes. At the Lyceum, at the galleries in SoHo, even down here, in this
	so-called-Utopia. The Doubters. But Ryan understands. We're simpatico...
	Yes, there's blood in the streets. Yes, people sometimes... disappear.
	And those awful little girls... Well, I suppose the Doubters think you
	can paint a picture without soiling your smock...

74  Martin Finnegan - The Iceman Cometh

	You think you gonna finish me in here, you old fruit? The other saps you
	tossed in this meat locker all panicked like rabbits. I just watched and
	waited. And when they started to kick, I started to scavenge. Made
	myself a little splicer cocktail I did. If you can't come in from the
	cold, then you gotta grow ice over your heart. And the iceman cometh,
	Sander baby. The iceman fucking cometh.

75  McDonagh - Fontaine's Army

	Fontaine knew our blokes were coming. We were done over. Them splicers
	come screaming out the woodwork. Burping fire, spitting ice... demons
	out of the Bible they were. Never seen nothing like it. It wasn't a
	business he was building, it was an army.

76  Anna Culpepper - Ryan's Stableboy

	Cohen's not a musician. He's Ryan's stable boy. Ryan's corrupt policies
	crap all over the place, and Cohen flutters around clearing it up. But
	instead of using a shovel, like you would with a proper mule, Cohen
	fidies with a catchy melody and a clever turn of phrase. But no matter
	how nicely it sounds, he can't really do anything about the smell...

77  Sullivan - Bump Culpepper?

	I just got the word to put the bump on Anna Culpepper. This isn't some
	gangster or hard-nosed political operative. We're talking about a dizzy
	twist what wrote a song or two that got under Ryan's wig.

78  Jasmine Jolene - Pregnancy

	That creepy Dr. Tenenbaum promised me it wasn't gonna be a real
	pregnancy, they'd just take the egg out once Mr. Ryan and I had... I
	needed the money so bad... But I know Mr. Ryan's gonna suss it out,
	gonna know I wasn't being careful... gonna know I sold the... Mr. Ryan's
	gonna be so mad at me...

79  McDonagh - Guns Blazing

	The good people of Rapture didn't sign up to see up government-types
	shutting down shops, killing their owners... even with a ponce like
	Fontaine. But he brung it upon himself. 'Stead of copping it on the
	chin, bugger gets into his 'ead that he's gonna go down guns blazing.
	Who does he think he is? John bloody Wayne? We can get on top of this.
	We can. Here's what we do: we find Fontaine's will and make what was his
	go to where it was intended - and not into the pockets of us that put
	'im into the ground.

80  Hector Rodriguez - It's All Grift

	You know what? Art... music... poetry... It's all grift. Cohen's got
	Ryan wrapped around his lil' pinky... and why? Because he tells him what
	he wants to hear. 'Rise, Rapture, Rise!' Nuts! That stuff was stale
	before it came out Cohen's pen. I'm through with the whole pinata. Let's
	see that old fruit try an' keep me here...

81  Sander Cohen - Requiem for Andrew Ryan

	I could have been the toast of Broadway, the talk of Hollywood. But,
	instead, I followed you to this soggy bucket. When you needed my star
	light, I illuminated you. But now I rot, waiting for an audience that
	doesn't... ever... come... I'm writing something for you, Andrew Ryan...
	it's a requiem.

82  McDonagh - Ryan Takes F Futuristics

	Ryan nationalized Fontaine Futuristics- he owns it now, lock, stock and
	barrel. For the good of the city, he says. He'll break it up in due
	time, he says. I've resigned from the council and lodged me letter of
	protest, but that's just pissing in the wind. It'll be war, I say...
	unless somebody stops Ryan and right fast.

83  Kyburz - Scoping the Gate

	I spent the afternoon trying to get as close to Ryan's gate as possible
	without making a spectacle of myself... He's got it shielded six ways
	till Easter. There's no way into that place. All I got for my trouble
	was the hairy eyeball from Ryan's splicer mates. That's the reward you
	get for trying to outsmart the best electrical engineer of our

84  McDonagh - Stopping Ryan

	I never killed a man, let alone a mate. But this is what things come to.
	I don't know if killing Mr. Ryan will stop the war, but I know it won't
	stop while that man breathes. I love Mr. Ryan. But I love Rapture. If I
	have to kill one to save the other, so be it.

85  Anya Andersdotter - Going to Heat Loss

	I had to go jungle-style with that filthy ape for three weeks, but he
	finally spilled the beans on how to get to Andrew Ryan. Generate a
	sympathetic overload in Harmonic Core #3. That's simple. Now all I gotta
	do is figure out what the hell a sympathetic overload is, and for that
	matter, a Harmonic Core #3! Piece of cake for an electrical engineer.
	Too bad I design lady's shoes. Gonna go see the grease monkeys left
	alive in Heat Loss monitoring, see what I can shake out of their trees.

86  Andrew Ryan - A Man or a Parasite

	What is the difference between a man and a parasite? A man builds. A
	parasite asks 'Where is my share?' A man creates. A parasite says, 'What
	will the neighbors think?' A man invents. A parasite says, 'Watch out,
	or you might tread on the toes of God...'

87  McDonagh - Fontaine's Legacy

	Strikes me that Fontaine wasn't overly inconvenienced by his own demise.
	On New Year's Eve, his wretched splicers came streaming out of the poor
	houses and stormed the proverbial barricades! The dead rot in the
	streets, and Johnny and Janey Citizen are lined up round the block for
	plasmids... anything to help fend off the rabble.

88  Anya Andersdotter - Assassin

	Me. An assassin... that's rich. I could have gone along, I suppose.
	Spliced up, forgot. I believed in this place. I believed in Ryan. But
	when it got hard, Ryan didn't believe in Rapture, didn't believe in the
	Great Chain. He believed in power. And now this place is busto. And my
	girl is... gone... worse than gone... one of those... things. So am I an
	assassin? ...Well, only one way to find out.

	Do you guys have any idea there's a war on? If you don't follow proper
	maintenance on those Big Daddys, they burn through those R-34s like them
	Eve's apple betties go through penicillin. I've got Atlas' goons hitting
	us non-stop, and two dead mechanics just this week, we need to control
	costs. If I wanted to deal with amateurs, I would have stayed on dry

90  Andrew Ryan - Impossible Anywhere Else

	To build a city at the bottom of the sea! Insanity. But where else could
	we be free from the clutching hand of the Parasites? Where else could we
	build an economy that they would not try to control, a society that they
	would not try to destroy? It was not impossible to build Rapture at the
	bottom of the sea. It was impossible to build it anywhere else.

91  Pablo Navarro - Kyburz Door Code

	Let me tell you something about Kyburz and all them university types...
	they're so smart, except when they ain't. I put a couple of drinks in
	him last week, and before I could say 'boo' he's telling me he's got the
	code to his office keyed to the date of Australia Day. Nows every weeks,
	I slip in real gentle and nick a buck or two from the till. The Aussie
	never notices, and I ain't about to tell him. Seems like there's all
	kind of crazy stuff back there. Maybe... maybe one day I'll get more

92  Pablo Navarro - Getting a Break

	I didn't recognize the twist that come into the shop today... Stacked
	like Sally and dressed to the nines. She's play her cards pretty close
	to the vest, but you ain't gotta be no college yob to see that she's
	into some bad china. She was asking about magnetic locks, and some such.
	I played it coy, but she look wise. After she showed me 'round her
	backyard, I gave her directions to Kyburz' tool shop. Rapture's gone to
	hell, but sometimes the Great Chain still cuts you a break.

93  McDonagh - Genetic Arms Race

	I begged Mr. Ryan to hand Fontaine Futuristics over to Atlas' boys as a
	peace offering, but the stupid sod won't listen to reason. 'Stead he's
	just splicing his mob up, giving them more and tougher plasmids. There's
	an arms race on here in Rapture, but it's not about who can build the
	best guns and the biggest bombs. It's about who can become less of a
	man and more of a monster...

94  Kyburz - Device Almost Finished

	Ryan's splicers are dragging the young woman off right now. I'm certain
	she's one of Ryan's spies, sent to feel me out... I think she is... if
	I'm wrong, an innocent girl'll end up on Ryan's bloody trophy wall. If
	I'm right... well, I best be right. The device is almost finished. I
	can't get soft now, I can't!

95  Andrew Ryan - Great Chain Moves Slowly

	Is there blood in the streets? Of course. Have some chosen to destroy
	themselves with careless splicing? Undeniable. But I will make no
	proclamations, I will dictate no laws. The Great Chain moves slowly, but
	with wisdom. It is our impatience that invites in the Parasite of big
	government. And once you've invited it in, it will never stop feeding on
	the body of the city.

96  Kyburz - The Dream

	What a barmy dream... some kind of fruit tree, spinning like a top, and
	it was pouring juice down Ryan's throat, choking the bastard. But it
	wasn't a tree, really, when I looked closer, it was the core control,
	the gizmo that feeds the mag locks on Ryan's gate. You can't cut off the
	power, comes right from the volcanic vents... Ryan always gets his
	juice. But I suppose you could drown the son of a bitch in it...

97  Kyburz - Assembling the Bomb

	The basic casing is ready, I've got one charge of nitroglycerin in my
	office, that will serve as a catalyst. Now I need four R-34 lead shield
	wire stubs to pass the circuit. Then a half-can of Ionic Gel - that's
	the pretty Betty of the mix. Should send the core into compensation
	mode, push power down the line and trigger the circuit breaker on Ryan's
	gate. That's the theory. It'll either work like a charm, or blow up half
	of Rapture. Nothing ventured...

98  Pablo Navarro - Market Maintenance

	I tracked the problem that was blocking the tubes here, and you'll never
	believe where I ended up... the damn Farmer's Market, clear on the other
	end of Rapture. I fixed it right up and installed some new gaskets...
	oof, what a mess. Anyway, the code is 0512 if you ever need to get back
	in there to do maintenance.

99  Suchong - The Vita Chamber

	Initial Deployment, Vita Chamber/Client Ryan Industries Stage one is
	complete. Sinclair and Alexander tried to explain the science to me, but
	Suchong does not believe them. They keep saying plasmid reconstruction
	this and quantum entanglement that, and then poof, dead people come back
	to life. Bullshit! Of course, Ryan will only allow it to be tunes to his
	genetic frequencies for the testing...

100 Suchong - Mind Control Test

	Suchong: Is that your puppy? She's very pretty...
	Little Boy: Thank you, Papa Suchong.
	Suchong: Break her neck for me.
	Little Boy: What?
	Suchong: Break that sweet puppy's neck.
	Little Boy: No... please...
	Suchong: Break that puppy's neck- would you kindly...
	Little Boy: No... no... *snap*
	Suchong: Very good.

101 Suchong - Baby Status

	Advanced Deployment, Lot 111 Dr. Suchong/Client Fontaine Futuristics.
	Baby is now a year old, weighs 58 pounds, and possesses gross muscular
	of a fit, 19 year old. The results are disappointing, but within
	expected tolerances.


		Olympus Heights - - Apollo Square (12)


102 Suchong - Mozart of Genetics

	That's quite a little monster Fontaine's dug up. When she does speak,
	which is almost never, her accent is thick and grating. Her hair is
	filthy and she seems to wear the same mustard-stained jumper day after
	day. But I've got to hand it to Frank: Tenenbaum is the all-time
	diamond in the rough. No formal training, no experience... but put her
	in front of a gene sequence, and she's Mozart at the harpsichord.

103 Suchong - Fontaine's Human Jukebox

	All those years we thought we were making progress: with our Skinner
	boxes and our electric shocks... what a waste of time. Until Adam, you
	could no more domesticate a child than a boa constrictor... Fontaine
	gives Suchong history for child that he wants to imprint into child
	head. Kid not a person, he jukebox, ready to play whatever tune Fontaine
	wants to hear.

104 Suchong - Mind Control Antidote

	Fontaine's become some kind of boogeyman in Rapture, that myth gives him
	power. But peel back flim-flam and the humbug, he's just another con
	man. And like all con men, he worries he'll end up on the wrong side of
	grift. That's why he commissioned Lot 192 - the antidote to the mental
	control plasmid. Fontaine said I better not tell anybody about the
	antidote, not even Tenenbaum. And Suchong is inclined to listen.

105 Sullivan - Artist Woman

	When it was done with Culpepper, I left her as she was in the bathroom.
	I seen she had a blanket half-knitted by her bed. It was nice, you know,
	black and red, real pretty. So I took it, so I could, you know, have
	somebody finish it. So it could be of use to someone. It just didn't
	seem right to leave it lying there, lying there all by itself.

106 Paparazzi - Fontaine's Breakup

	Looks like things have gone busto between Fontaine and his little German
	beanpole. Why a guy like Fontaine would waste his time with that spooky
	Kraut when he could be gettin' the gravy from any dish he chooses is
	beyond the understanding of this paparazzi. Even reset the door code to
	5744, maybe to be double-sure that beanpole don't sprout up in his yard

107 Frank Fontaine - Sad Saps

	These sad saps. They come to Rapture, thinking they're gonna be captains
	of industry. But they all forget that somebody's gotta scrub the
	toilets. What an angle they gave me- I hand these mugs a cot and a bowl
	of soup, and they give me their lives. Who needs an army when I got
	Fontaine's Home for the Poor?

108 Diane McClintock - What's Happening Here?

	I was so angry when I came down here, but... my god... I had no idea...
	there's armed men all over the place... I saw a woman climb over the
	fence trying to escape... one of Ryan's guards pointed at her, and she
	lit on fire... just like that. What's happening here?

109 Diane McClintock - Atlas Lives

	I bribed one of the gorillas at the gate to let me in. It's awful in
	here... to my right, I can see a dead woman lying in the street...
	everybody's just walking by her, like she isn't there. But I noticed
	something, spray-painted everywhere... 'Atlas lives.' I don't know what
	it means, but something tells me it's important to these people...

110 Suchong - Protection Bond

	Suchong: Clinical Trial Protector System Plasmid Lot 255 Dr.
		Suchong/client Ryan Industries. Very frustrating day. I can't
		seem to get the damn Big Daddies to imprint on the little brats.
		The protection bond is just not forming...
	Gatherer: Papa Suchong!
	Suchong: Get, get away... maybe if I modify the genetic sequence to...
	Gatherer: Papa Suchong!
	Suchong: Shush, shoo... sequence to allow for...
	Gatherer: Papa Suchong! Papa Suchong! Papa Suchong!
	Suchong: Get away you filthy little shit! *smacks gatherer* *gatherer
		starts to cry* ...What? *Big Daddy growls* What are you doing?
		get back... get back!!! Argh!

111 Diane McClintock - Meeting Atlas

	The people here have grown to trust me... Ryan's mistress, and still
	they take me in! They finally brought me to Atlas. Without him, the
	people of 'pollo Square would give up. I asked him if he was going to
	lead the people in some kind of uprising against Ryan. He sighed and
	said, 'I am not a liberator. Liberators do not exist. These people will
	liberate themselves.' I thought Andrew Ryan was a great man. I was a

112 Frank Fontaine - The Longest Con

	Frank Fontaine: Never play a man for the short con when you can play 'em
		for the long one. Atlas is the longest con of all. Ryan wanted
		Frank Fontaine Dead, I just gave him what he wanted. As Atlas,
		I got a new face, a clean record, and a fresh start. Now it's
		time to take back Rapture and-
	Diane McClintock: ...Ryan did. I can't wait to tell Atlas. He'll be so
	Frank Fontaine: Uhh, Miss McClintock... what are you doing here? Let me
		just turn this off...

113 Diane McClintock - Today's Raid

	We went on a raid outside the wire today. We snagged 31 rounds of
	buckshot, 4 frag grenades, a shotgun, and 34 Adam. We lost McGee,
	Epstein and Vallette. We got one of those goddamn Big Daddies in the
	bargain, though. It was something awful what they had to do to that
	little girl to get the Adam, but we didn't start this thing. Ryan did. I
	can't wait to tell Atlas. He'll be so pleased...


			Point Prometheus - - Proving Grounds (9)


114 Tenenbaum - Why Just Girls?

	I know why it has to be children, but why just girls? This I cannot
	determine why, but I know it is so. Fontaine says 'ah, one less bathroom
	to build in the orphanage'. It is amazing to watch the effect of Adam on
	their small bodies. Their own cells, replaced by the new stems the
	instant they are damaged. These children are practically invulnerable.
	It is a shame you could not do the same thing to an adult. There would
	be quite a market for a man you could not kill.

115 Andrew Ryan - Marketing Gold

	I'll admit Fontaine showed some foresight when he built up the plasmid
	business, but the man really never understood sales. Hiding those little
	girls beneath a bushel. I've just seen the preliminary design work on
	the new plasmid machines, and they're exactly what I wanted. Mark my
	words- presented property, those little sisters are marketing gold.

116 Suchong - Extra Munitions

	Ryan sent over extra munitions. He must've suspected trouble. I've
	locked them up near the Protector Labs and set the code to 1921. I don't
	expect we'll ever be needing them though. Once Big Daddy is ready,
	nobody cross the Big Daddy.

117 Suchong - Protecting Little Ones

	War a terrible thing. Japanese kill every man in my city, except for
	Suchong. Suchong have opium. Very good opium. This war, terrible thing,
	too, but not for Suchong. Everyone scared now. Everyone need Adam. More
	than Little Sisters can make. Good news is war makes lots of corpses.
	Suchong knows way to recycle Adam from corpse. But can't send Little
	Sister out to street unprotected. Suchong must think on this.

118 Andrew Ryan - Mistakes

	Could I have made mistakes? One does not build cities if one is guided
	by doubt. But can one govern in absolute certainty? I know that my
	beliefs have elevated me, just as I know that the things I have rejected
	would have destroyed me. But the city... it is collapsing before my...
	have I become so convinced by my own beliefs that I have stopped seeing
	the truth? Perhaps. But Atlas is out there, and he aims to destroy me,
	and destroy my city. To question is to surrender. I will not question.

119 Suchong - Protector Smell

	Big Daddy make a terrible stink, very smelly. Maybe something can be
	done, but Little Sisters seem to like odor. Now we have to find
	recruits... you become Big Daddy, it's a one way street. But Ryan says,
	don't worry, recruits will be no problem. That Ryan- he's a good guy.

120 Suchong - Missing Boots

	Goddamnit! The Big Daddy boots need to be shipped here, not to damn
	library! What kind of idiots is Ryan hiring nowadays? This kind of
	bullshit never happen under Fontaine.

121 Suchong - Cheap Son of a Bitch

	Fontaine scary son of a bitch, but Ryan cheap son of a bitch. You can no
	reuse protector suit. Take a man, graft skin and organs straight into
	suit, otherwise suit not work. Ryan say Big Daddy too expensive. Ryan
	can go suck egg.

122 Suchong - Changing Employers

	Fontaine is dead. Hmmm. Bad for Fontaine. Good for Suchong. Play hard to
	get for a bit, then Mr. Ryan get hungry for me. Tenenbaum gone, Fontaine
	gone, Suchong only one who know all about Little Sisters. Like I said,
	this very good for Suchong.

I hope you found this guide useful.

After reading all of these Audio Diaries, I hope you have a better understanding
of the deep story that goes into Rapture, as well as how you tie into it.
