Real-time dialogue[]

Telephone conversations[]

Telephone in Oswald's Office[]

Mandus
"Hello?"
The Engineer
"Precious eagle cactus fruit... help us."
Telephone in Mandus's office.

Telephone in the Mansion Hall[]

The Engineer
"Mandus... do you know me?"
Mandus
"Who are you? Where are my children?"
The Engineer
"Trapped, Mandus, far below us. The Machine is fouled, it is breached, it is flooded. The bulkheads are down, the children are encaged. If you help me, I can help you release them. Restore the power Mandus, drain the flooding and restart the great engines."
[The Engineer hangs up.]
Mandus
"(How?) Where should I go? Hello... hello?"
Telephone in corridor of Mandus's mansion.

Telephone in the Cellar[]

The Engineer
"The shaking ground you feel is our attempts to clear the floodwaters. Treachery Mandus, we were undone. Your children are trapped by this act, you must find them before it is too late."
Mandus
"What do you need me to do? How can I find them?"
The Engineer
"Always deeper Mandus. Through the piston room and into the tunnels, then find the bilge and flush the rotten water. I will help you where I can, but you must be swift, my little friend."
Telephone in the Cellar.

Telephone in the Alley[]

The Engineer
"I have such visions to share with thee if my jaw be unshackled and you harvest the crust from my eyes. Make me clean Mandus, that my thoughts and words can unfouled be."
Telephone in the Alley.

Telephone in the Factory[]

The Engineer
"Hear me Mandus. I am compromised, our contacts must be brief and occasional. Beware the Wretches who populate this compound. The way you seek is under the pistons. When you meet the saboteur you will understand everything."
Telephone in the Factory.

Telephone in the Tunnels[]

The Engineer
"Quickly Mandus, find the entrance nearby. The children weep in the darkness and the floodwaters continue to rise."
Telephone in the factory Tunnels.
The Engineer
"The lift has been sabotaged. You will have to find another way to the tunnels. Take great care in this place Mandus, it is the crucible of the evil that stalks these corridors."
Telephone in the factory Tunnels.

Telephone in the Sewers[]

The Engineer
"Faster Mandus. Drain the waters, open the way to the bilge pumps. We are waiting for you."
Telephone in the factory Sewers.

Direct conversation[]

The Children, Dancing[]

The Engineer
"And you came then to London and you set me upon a mantelpiece and then you went into the house and gathered the servants and we set, you and I, on re-crafting them and then you went into the garden and buried those tiny shattered skulls. Alone."

"For your children Mandus, to spare them the world you have created. For us all."
Spoken when descending the stairs in the Reactor.
The Engineer
"Quickly, quickly the air is thin. Their little faces turn blue Mandus. They suffocate! They suffocate!"
Spoken when near the rods in the Reactor control room.
The Engineer
"Now Mandus. Set them free. Set them all free!"
Spoken before touching the activation lever in the Reactor control room.
The Engineer
"I live! I breathe again! I rise, I will rise to bleach the sky and still the water! I will spin the world wheel and set the future upon the path of redemption!"
Mandus
"Where are my children? You promised me my children!
The Engineer
"My time is come! More pig! More pig!"
Mandus
"Boys. Boys, I'm sorry, I'm so sorry" [sic]
Spoken after the Machine has been reactivated.

Mandus, Saboteur[]

Mandus
"Where are they? Where are my children?"
The Engineer
"Why do you ask Mandus? You know the answer well enough."
Spoken when entering Pressure Regulation in the Engine Rooms.
The Engineer
"What are you doing little piggy? Do you think I will allow you to sabotage me again?"
Mandus
"I want my children you unholy bastard!"                   
Spoken in the Engine Rooms, after sabotaging the Pressure Regulation system.
The Engineer
"This is your doing, Mandus, this is what you dreamt into being."
Mandus
"I will stop you. I will save them."
The Engineer
"You are too late. It begins. My work has begun. Kill them, my piggies, kill them all!"
Spoken when near the exit elevator in the Engine Rooms.

Anything to Save Them[]

The Engineer
"Mandus! I know you are out here! I own this city, I am this city!"
Mandus
"No! This is not what I meant! This is not what I meant at all!"
Spoken when Mandus enters the streets.
The Engineer
"Redeem yourselves! Redemption is at hand! Enter the cleansing and set your souls free! For you are born into filth and will die as pigs. Only through my redemption can you ascend to the skies and claim the heavens as your kingdom. Fall on your knees! Ashes, ashes, bones and ashes. For the pile will reach critical and we can have such a burning that this city will shine as a beacon of redemption for the world!"
Spoken when Mandus is moving through the streets.
The Engineer
"Do you hear me Mandus? This is what you planned!"

"This world is a machine! A Machine for Pigs! Fit only for the slaughtering of pigs!"

"Whores, beggars, orphans, filthy degenerates. Pigs all. But I will purify the streets, cleanse this city, set the great industry free. I will clean the world, make it pure."
Spoken when Mandus is moving through the streets.

Farming the World[]

Mandus
"I know you, machine. I know what you fear. I will rain excrement into your very soul. I will destroy you."
The Engineer
"You are too late Mandus, my great works are almost begun."
Spoken during the Pigline, after Mandus proclaims he will destroy the Machine.

The Veil Lifts, the Bride is Waiting[]

The Engineer
"Hear me Mandus. My gears are adjust, my steam is built. Soon I will spill that blue water and split the egg, the atom, my soul and there will be a very great burning that we might make the world clean. Be proud for this is your doing. Until you steeped me in the blood of your own I was nothing but rotten architecture. You have made me and I will make the world anew."
Spoken during in the Orgone Distribution Tanks, during the beginning elevator ride.
Mandus
"But why did you take my children?"
The Engineer
"I, Mandus? Of all the blood we have spilt together, the first drops fell from your hands alone."
Mandus
"Then I am damned for a filicide, and everything is lost."
The Engineer, answering Mandus why his children were taken.

Mandus Descending amongst The Spirits[]

The Engineer
"Mandus. Put aside your misguided crusade and let me save them. You may hate me Mandus, but I have seen the future, your twentieth century and let me tell you this: a far greater slaughter awaits you there. I seek to save the world by blood now, before millions fall beneath history, pushed under by blade, bullet and gas."
Spoken after entering the Electrogravitic Suppression tower.
Mandus
"I have you now creature. I will destroy you."
The Engineer
"Stop him! Stop him! Kill him!"
Mandus
"It is over! It is time to end this madness!"
Spoken after all armonicas in the Tesla tower are activated.

Enoch, Edwin, Oswald and I[]

The Engineer
"Mandus, listen to your heart, you know you are with me. You created me to save the world. I am your friend."
Spoken when progressing through the Temple.
The Engineer
"Mandus, please. I am no more evil than you. We sought the same thing, to save humanity, ridding them of their painful, stupid, pointless lives."
Spoken when progressing through the Temple.
The Engineer
"Mandus, stop. Think about what you are doing. For your children, Mandus."
Mandus
"Do not speak of my children, monster."
The Engineer
"I did not kill your children, Mandus. You sacrificed them on the temple steps knowing what the coming century would do to them. Your sons will drown, lungs full of mud and sharpnel, on the banks of the Somme. You wanted to save them from the horror to come. That is the vision we shared. Everything we have built to avert this coming nightmare. You and I are one. We are the same, our souls are entangled. We deserve to make them free!"
Spoken when progressing through the Temple.
The Engineer
"I have stood knee deep in mud and bone and filled my lungs with mustard gas. I have seen two brothers fall. I have lain with holy wars and copulated with the autumnal fallout. I have dug trenches for the refugees; I have murdered dissidents where the ground never thaws and starved the masses into faith. A child's shadow burnt into the brickwork. A house of skulls in the jungle. The innocent, the innocent, Mandus, trod and bled and gassed and starved and beaten and murdered and enslaved. This is your coming century! They will eat them Mandus, they will make pigs of you all and they will bury their snouts into your ribs and they will eat your hearts!"
Spoken as Mandus ascends the Temple.
The Engineer
"Please Mandus no, for your children!"
Spoken as Mandus reaches the top of the Temple.

Memories[]

Filthy Discharge[]

Mandus
"Isn't it dangerous allowing this filthy discharge to collect so close to the core?"
The Engineer
"We can use the flow to drive the turbines, there will always be a torrent of excreta flooding through these tunnels. We can use this to supplement the steam production and ensure constancy."
Mandus
"Dear god the stench. This fecal matter is the true product of the age."
Recalled in the Sewers, discussing with Mandus about the discharge.

A Cleansing Fire[]

Mandus
"Will it... hurt them?"
The Engineer
"A cleansing fire always burns, little Mandus, but it purifies and it makes anew. Did it hurt to carve out the fevered flesh? Did it hurt to cut free the gangrenous foot? Ask instead this - can we save them?"
Recalled in the Engine Rooms.

Show Me These Worthy[]

Mandus
"But will they be free?"
The Engineer
"Yes, my friend, drained and bled and freed from the prison of the flesh. Free to ascend as smoke to the stars."
Mandus
"And the good, the worthy. How will we save them?"
The Engineer
"Show me these worthy, Mandus. Show me these good. I do not see them."
Recalled in the Pigline.

Cut content[]

'Bad' ending[]

The Engineer
"Yes... yes, Mandus. I knew you understood. Just a few seconds more, and the egg will hatch."
From a presumably 'Bad' ending.
The Engineer
"I am created. My layers peel, and the air begins to vibrate around me! Soon, we will be aflame!"
From a presumably 'Bad' ending.
The Engineer
"It is done. Thank you, Mandus."
The Engineer
"Let there be light."
From a presumably 'Bad' ending.

'Good' ending[]

The Engineer
"I am begging you. You made me. You are my Creator, my Father. You cannot destroy me!"
From a presumably 'Good' ending.
The Engineer
"Daddy, Daddy, please don't kill me."
From a presumably 'Good' ending.


Unknown attribution[]

The Engineer
"Yes! Yes! Now enter the Bilge. Flush away this rotten world, and open the doorway to my heart."
Mandus
"Oh men, how have I wronged you. Your filth is your humanity, to scrub you clean is to lose the very act of life itself."
The Engineer
"Silence, Mandus, you imbecile, you weakling, you cretin. A revolution of simpletons. These retarded harbingers, offal and sputum. Yes, you belong amongst them, and you can die amongst them."
