Fred Calms Leon's Agony[edit | edit source]

Fred
Leon! Come on, man...
Leon
LEAVE ME ALONE! I NEED A DRINK!
Fred
I can't. I don't wanna imagine what you could do if I leave you drunk AND alone.
Leon
YOU THINK I CARE WHAT HAPPENS? IT'S OVER, FRED! EVERYTHING IS OVER!
Fred
Leon, I don't think you get it. Nothing changed at all.
It's just like the Cagist said. Remember Clemens?
What Ada is doing right now is not any different from what she has done her entire life...
Why are you so mad over nothing?
Leon
...
Fred
Leon, Ada never changed. You're the one who did.
Leon
No... How could I...
Fred
Besides, it's not her fault, right? It's just her job.
You wouldn't be sad about it if you truly liked her that much.
More than that! If she's forced to do such... Shameful things.
Shouldn't you be blaming the people who forced her to do it?
Shouldn't you be mad at them instead?
There's no need to be sad, Leon.
Leon
...You're... You're right...
I should support Ada as best as I can!
How could I call myself a good husband otherwise?
Fred
Leon, you're not he- nevermind.
Leon
...I really do need a drink, though!
Fred
Right, you still should cool down either way.
Well, uh, I know a good place... Should we go there?
Leon
Alright, let's get going then!
Fred
I kinda feel bad for doing this...
Well, if looking at things that way makes you happier, then so be it.
Vergil
Good night, gentlemen!
...Wait a second, Fred? Hold on, I'll call the boss.
Chuck
Ah, if it isn't one of our VIP clients!
Fred
It's been a while, Chuck. I've sure missed this place.
Chuck
And we missed you, too.
So, let's get down to business. I see you've brought us a new client?
Fred
Well, it's his first time here, indeed.
Chuck
So, asking for anyone specific?
Fred
Same as always. Give me my favorite traps.
Chuck
Of course! And for you, new guy?
Leon
Uhhhh, give me some apple juice, please.
Fred
Leon, that's for later... Let me handle that.
Give him your number one, Chuck. I'll pay for it.
Chuck
Ohhhh, I see, I see! No problem, I'll make sure he has a great time.
Leon
You're getting me the most expensive whiskey? Or is it vodka?
Fred
...It's better than that. Don't worry about it.
Chuck
Please proceed to the room over there. Your pleasure is our business!
Leon
A private room for drinking? Man, this place rocks!
Fred
Well, actually, it quite literally... SUCKS.

Drake Talks With His Father[edit | edit source]

Drake
...Dad, we rarely ever meet up like this. What is it?
Micah
I'm worried, Drake. That's all.
I heard some nasty, nasty rumors about you.
Drake
E-Eh?! No, I didn't send her anything inaproppriate! I swear!
Micah
What are you saying? I'm talking about... Your debt.
Is it true that you took a loan you simply can't pay?
Drake
No és verdad! I would never do such a thing!
Besides, I'll be able to pay any and all of my debts with my investments in the NFT market.
Have you seen how popular they've gotten lately?
It's just a matter of time until I can sell all of my screenshotted Twitter posts!
Micah
Drake, it's fine. You don't need to lie to me.
I wanna be a good father for once. I know that might not've always been the case, but...
If you need financial help, I'll gladly wrestle twice as much to pay the bills, for me and for you too.
Drake
I know how to take care of myself, padre! Why don't you worry about your own life instead?
I don't need your babysitting!
Micah
But Drake...
Drake
Ah, they're calling mi teléfono! Let me take it in peace!
Hola, Papi! Como estás?
Micah
P-Papi...
I get it, maybe you need some alone time after all. I'm sorry, Drake.
Drake
...I can handle my debts, can't I? I can recover...
Papi
Yes, yes, Drake! You can! You've got it in you!
You just need to follow my teachings. I'm an NFT billionaire after all.
Drake
Wait a minute... You... You... Answered?

Greg Thanks Doc For The Dose[edit | edit source]

Gregory
As you can see, I'm as good as new, Doc!
Piccolo
Yeah... Sure... Uhhh, just one thing.
You HAVE been taking your daily doses, right?
Gregory
Yep, of course! If it means I can bump harder, then I'll keep taking as many as you tell me to!
They'll help my brain and body heal faster, right? That's what you said.
Piccolo
For sure... They're, uh, approved by nine out of ten scientists, even!
Gregory
Hm? I wonder why one of those wouldn't approve it.
Whatever the reason, thanks to your treatment all the pain is gone. This is almost magical!
Piccolo
That drug is the result of years of studies.
I'm sure it'll... Serve its purpose as best as it possibly can.
Gregory
Hahahah! I'm gonna bump like I'm in the indies again!
Hello? Miles, is that you?
Edgeworth
I just saw your last match. Just what were you thinking?
You can't keep bumping like that at your age.
And what's up with the diving headbutts?
Doing it once is already bad, but FOUR TIMES A DAY?!
Gregory
There's nothing wrong. That's just my wrestling style.
Did you not notice how rowdy the crowd was?
They want to see those kind of moves!
Edgeworth
I'm not joking here.
If you don't leave TFR by yourself, I'm gonna put you in a retirement home!
At this point, it might be the best for you...
Gregory
Hah, nice one! Don't worry about me, though.
I haven't been in any pain since my last match.
Besides, I gotta keep doing it for my fans. I can't let them down!
Thanks for calling, either way. See ya!
...
...Kids these days, right, Doc?
Well, I gotta get going. I wanna test how effective those headbutts really are.
Paid some guy with a robot for a match. Let's see if I can crack his metal!

Charles' Ambitions[edit | edit source]

Charles
You know, this has been pretty tiresome, but...
I gotta say, I like the grind.
Even if I'm not getting as much money as I'd hope with those gigs...
Things like bringing pocket tissues to a guy shitting himself in the bathroom just feels right!
I gotta thank you. You changed my outlook on life.
Robo-Battler
I HAD TO HAVE BEEN USEFUL FOR SOMETHING, RIGHT?
Charles
I used to always do what my boss told me, no questions asked.
But now that I'm trying to set up my own family...
I feel in control of my own destiny, for once. It's all thanks to you.
Hell, I barely remember the last thing I did for Shimano...
Oh, right! He asked me to secretly put a cum-stained bill in some weird guy's pockets.
He said my partner couldn't see me doing that, too, for some reason.
Robo-Battler
C-C-C-C-WHAAAAAAAAAAT??! D-DON'T USE SUCH WORDS NEAR ME! I ALREADY TOLD YOUUUU!!!
Charles
...Are you done yet?
Robo-Battler
J-JUST A SECOND MORE!
...DONE. ALL SYSTEMS NOMINAL.
Charles
In the past, my ambition was weak. I never had the strength to fulfill my dreams.
But you gave me the final push I needed. Thanks again.
Robo-Battler
...DO YOU WANT TO LEARN MORE ABOUT ME, THEN?
I WAS CREATED BY A GENIUS ENGINEER. HIS NAME IS HEISENBERG.
I DIDN'T GET TO SPEND MUCH TIME WITH HIM BEFORE BEING GIVEN AWAY TO SOME RICH OLD MAN...
APPARENTLY, HE GAVE MY CREATOR A LOT OF MONEY FOR THE PROJECT. HE PAID IT IN GOLD, EVEN.
Charles
Wait, so that Heisenberg guy is loaded?
...
...Screw it. You know, in the end, I'm still mafia.
If there's an easy way to get money, I'll take it!
Does he have any security?
Robo-Battler
NOT REALLY. JUST A BUNCH OF SCRAP.
Charles
Man, oh, man, why didn't you tell me about this sooner?
I'm gonna soon be able to achieve all of my dreams! And you, too!
Robo-Battler
Y-YOU WANT TO FULFILL M-MY DREAMS??? B-BUT, I DON'T EVEN... AHHHHHH, WE'RE MOVING TOO QUICK HERE!!!

Narihisago tried to get ignored by kneeling breathing heavily while others fought, but Raiden kicked him and sent him flying.

Chris' Squad Investigates The Van[edit | edit source]

Date
Not... Again...
Dan
You were lucky you managed to escape until now.
Van
Seems like you want to get punished, huh?
I'll make sure to give you the 300 bucks treatment for free, then!
Piers
Dammit... What is the captain... Gonna think...
???
PIERS!
Chris
Ah, you two assholes! I knew it!
The guy with the van, too, from last time!
Van
Get the name right, our team is called The Man With The Van!
Dan
Redfield, you again...
I guess it's time to retreat. We're not in conditions to fight two on three right now.
Van
I'll see you again, big guy... And nice biceps, by the way.
Chris
Piers, everything alright? And you... Date, is it?
Date
No... I wanted that free "treatment"...
Piers
I'm sorry, captain. I was sure I could do better than this.
Wesker
...CHRISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!
Chris
WESKEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!
...Uh, good job, Enrico. At least we scored that one.
Enrico
Yeah.
Chris
So, let's get going, then. We can't lose track of those two.
Piers
...Where are they?
Chris
That fat bastard's van is there again.
They must've went down that dungeon. Quick, inside the van!
Piers
Dungeon? That's just a regular van, isn't it?
Are you sure that's how they captured you last time?
Enrico
Yeah.
Chris
...Dammit, there must be a secret entrance.
WESKEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!
Wesker
CHRISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS, what do you want?
Chris
Show us how to open this, right now!
Wesker
...Only if you tell me my new glasses look cool.
Chris
...Wesker, you're pitiful.
Wesker
Nevermind, forget what I said, alright? I'll open it!
Chris
Guess we're gonna have to split up. This place is quite big.
Piers, take the left. Enrico, keep going. I'll take the right side.
Same as always, stay in contact through the radio.
Enrico
Yeah.
Piers
Got it, captain! I'll show you my worth this time!
Wesker
HEY, I'M STILL TIED UP HERE!
...
Huh?
Chris
This place sure does stink.
Not a single trace of those two, or anyone else... Hmmm...
Oh, what is this? A business card?
"Big Pussy - Chuck's Fuck & Suck - Platinum Hostess"...
Big Pussy
Hey, Chris Redfield, that's my Business Card!
Give it back or I'll show you what it's for!

>Yes, return item
>No, it's mine!

Hey, Chris Redfield, we've taken each other to hell and back!
But I think it's time to put it all behind us. What do you say?

>Yes, become friends
>No, screw you!

Big Pussy
Alright, I've got your back from now on!
Chris
Wait, you didn't explain it to me! What is this place in your card?
Ahhh, dammit... There's nothing else left for me here. I'll go check on the others.
...Huh? The radio is off again?
I guess we'll have to regroup personally. I'll go find Enrico first.
???
Is that Chris?
Chris
...Is that voice Enrico's?
Enrico
Yeah...
Are you with anybody, Chris?
Chris
Oh? No, why are you asking?
Enrico
Listen, someone in our squad... Is a traitor...
Chris
No way... Did they do this to you?
Enrico
Y-Yeah...
Chris
Dammit, hold on! I can help you out, let's get out of here!
Enrico
Chris... DOUBLE CROSSER!
Chris
Enrico!
Enrico
Ah... Hell... Yeah.......
Chris
Shit, the shot came from over there! I'll catch you, asshole!
Who's that shady guy? Could he be the shooter?
...Better not to rush to conclusions. He's on the phone, so I'll just keep listening.
???
Yeah, I've got all the evidence.
They'll be wrapped around my finger in no time.
I've worked hard for this. I've even betrayed people. But It'll all be worth it soon enough.
Chris
Wait, that voice... I knew I recognized it!
It's... It's...
Ah, so that's why you went missing and left our squad behind when we arrived here...
You were the traitor all along... Phoenix Wrong!
WROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!
GOD DAMMIT, OPEN THIS SHIT! YOU COWARD!
UGH! I DON'T HAVE ANY RED JEWELS OR MEDALLIONS TO PLACE HERE...
Date
Chris? What happened?!
Chris
...I'll tell you about it later. The situation is really bad... They got Enrico.
Date
Enrico? But... But why...
Chris
We can't lose track of them! Did you gather any leads?
Date
Uh, nuh-uh! No luck at all!
Chris
So, the only thing we have for our investigation...
Is this business card I found earlier.
"Chuck's Fuck & Suck".
Date
Oh, I know that place! I can show you how to get there easily!
Chris
Alright, let's find Piers and get going, then.
I'll get it arranged so Enrico's body is taken out of here and this place is investigated further.
Date
Good call! W-Wait, uh, I kinda wanted to stay a bit longer...
Chris
No time for that, Date! Lead the way!
Date
...A-Alright...
Aiba
I'm gonna make sure to burn those magazines during your sleep.

Investigating TFR[edit | edit source]

Wright
It's useless. No evidence and no testimonies so far.
Security guards don't seem to know anything, at least. And I expected quite a lot from them.
Saihara
Was Sminem really off the mark? No one knows anything after all?
Wright
No way. He knows about this company, more than anyone.
Right, we still have people from other areas to talk to.
Like, for example, the talent scout!
Saihara
Good idea! Although I have my doubts about that guy, personally...
Wright
Amami. It's been quite a while.
Amami
Hey, Wright! Bet it feels good to be back!
I know I'm happy about your return. It was sad to see you go like that.
Especially with all the effort I went through to scout you in Japanifornia.
Then again, traveling the world isn't really a problem to me, is it?
Wright
Actually, it's thanks to Sminem that I'm back.
...
Amami
Oh... I'm sorry I brought that up...
Wright
It's... It's okay, don't worry...

Kyle
Wright, I'm sorry I have to be the bearer of bad news.
But I was the one who found his body, after all.
I saw how he had recently called your number... And I didn't know who to talk to at the time.
So I figured it was only fair for you to be informed about his death before anyone else.
Wright
So, it really is true?
The boss... He's gone? Just like that?
Kyle
Yeah. It really puts into perspective how fragile life is.
Wright
I gotta admit... This is more shocking than Jinder Mahal's world title win at Backlash 2017.
Makes me even sadder than his terrible title reign, too...
Kyle
I see you really are into wrestling...
So, that's a way you can bounce back from those news, I guess.
Now you're back to doing what you love. Honor his memory by putting on great matches.
Wright
You can be sure of it... And I'll also finish the job he started... The investigation.

Wright
Well, where to next?
Saihara
The talent scout knew nothing, so... Maybe the infirmary?
Wright
Sounds like a plan. Let's get go-
Saihara
WRIGHT! LOOK OUT!
Wright
SAIHARA! ARE YOU OKAY?!
Dammit, now I REALLY need to get to the infirmary!
The Janitor
Nothing to see here. Thread closed.
Wright
What? Let us through! Can't you see he's hurt?
The Janitor
Nope. I'm cleaning it up.
Wright
Why don't you clean up those chairs instead? Do your job...
The Janitor
I don't take orders from you. In fact, what you've just done is worthy of a permanent ban!
Wright
Damn, it's harder to negotiate with you than to figure out which brand's champion to face at WrestleMania after winning the Royal Rumble...
Alright, I guess there's only one way to settle this!

The Janitor
Aahhh... Alright, alright!
I'm gassed here, really. I need a hot pocket!

I'm not moving out of the way either!
The Janitor
No... If I don't get a bite of Nutri Deli right now... I'll...
But I can't let you in, still!
If I do, I'll lose my job! What about my salary of zero dollars and zero cents?!
Wright
Then... Then tell me who told you to do this!
And for God's sake, don't come at me with something like The Greater Power's reveal in the July 7th 1999 episode of Raw!
The Janitor
Hmmmm, I don't remember reading any rules against spilling the beans on who's my superior when I sent my application e-mail...
Alright! The one who told me to close the infirmary was-

*bang*

Wright
Huh? W-Who did that?!
Get back here!!!
Argh! They're nowhere to be seen.
Wait, right, Saihara!
I can get Saihara to the infirmary now!
Saihara! Hang in there, buddy!
You'll be fine in no time!
The Janitor
...W-Where's... M-My... H-Hot pockets?
Wright
There... You'll be fine now...
The doctor should be here anytime. Staff will clear up the chairs.
Well, even if they don't, I'll do it with my own hands. I can't lose anyone else.
Amami
Wright! What happened?!
Wright
It's Saihara. Some chair stack fell on him.
Amami
Huh? Oh, like that huge stack in backstage?
Wright
Yeah... Like things couldn't get any worse.
Amami
What about the guy bleeding out on the hallway?
Wright
Oh, him? I think it's already too late for him...
Amami
I see. I've got a meeting scheduled now, but call me if anything happens.
Wright
For sure, I need all the help I can get.
What did we do to deserve all this?
...And what would Sminem do in this situation?

You see, Kiryu. As much as I respect you...
Some information just can't be spread.
So why don't you turn around, and pretend you know nothing?
I'll go further... Maybe you should even leave this place altogether...
It's the best for you, isn't it? Don't you want to stay away from the rough business?
Kiryu
You aren't like that, Cagist!
What happened? Who did you meet? Who's getting to your head?
The Cagist
I feel like it's 11:59PM on Locktober 31st...
Kiryu
So not even Steph is gonna stop you?
Why are you so relentless? Don't you remember?
Don't you remember what Steven did for you? For both of us?
Why... Why would you betray him like that?
Why would you start a organization such as Evolution?
The Cagist
You want to know, Kiryu?
Then, I'm afraid my information has a price...
Kiryu
I see where this is going. You want to fight like a honorable man.
Alright, let's make this my send off from NXT.

The Cagist
...Ahhh... It had been so long since I put on a classic like that.
Flair would be proud of what we just did.
And who better to give me an A+ match than you, Kiryu...
Kiryu
The same man taught the both of us a lot, didn't he?
Steven. He might not've raised you like he did with me, him and Kasai.
But he did you many favors. He saved you... From Shimano.
The Cagist
You're right, and that's exactly why...
That's exactly why I could never betray him.
With me there, Evolution would've never went after the Sonozakis.
We were created with a different purpose. We were rebels.
Kiryu
So, you're saying that... What Evolution turned into... Is a mystery to you?
The Cagist
Do you remember, Kiryu? All that Steven has done for you?
Kiryu
I do... Including, the turning point in my life.
With his contacts in the movie industry...
He got me the leading role on Director Hideo Kojima's masterpiece, "Dragon".
The Cagist
Indeed. That's how the Dragon of Kojima was born.
That fame has gotten you many things, but also attracted all kinds of disgrace to those around you.
Having a known face around Coolsville is not always for the best.
Kiryu
It's why I've cut ties with so many people. You're one of the few who remain, Cagist.
I'm glad I won't have to leave you behind, too.
The Cagist
Much like him, you'd never leave a friend behind.
You take after such a kind person, after all.
I still remember... That day, when Shimano was threatening me...
And Steven showed up... He saved my life all by himself.
Kiryu
Ah, that fight. I've heard stories about it...

We can never forget those we're fighting for. Or the reasons why we keep walking this path...
This is what life is for us.
You said before this felt like 11:59PM on Locktober 31st...

Oh, I forgot to tell you, dear!
The Cagist
F-Finally? Is it finally time?
Steph
Yes! It's indeed time! You've been a good boy, so...
I'm happy to announce it's time for No Nut November!
The Cagist

Kiryu
Guess that's just how married life is like... Full of ups and downs.

???
Oi, that dragon fella's been' thinking he's hot stuff, huh?
He might've gotten through us with that "NXT rules" crap...
But I'm sure he can't endure a good ol' Irish brawl!
???
So, you're going on ahead?
Honestly, I believe I'm more capable of putting a stop to him myself.
The power and numbers of the Jindrak family currently exceed those of the O'Shaunessy family.
Maybe we should ask what the boss thinks?
???
Keep 'im out of it. Putting yourself above your partners like that, though... It's a shameful thing.
But don't worry, you won't even have time to say hello to Kiryu...
Sheamus
Because when the Celtic Warrior hits 'im full force... He'll be down for the count.

Shimano's Plans[edit | edit source]

Shimano
Thanks for the hard work in keeping those Yeagerists in check, Ruber.
Their "fight for freedom" movement makes for a great front.
Ruber
No problem, boss! You know how loyal I am to the cause.
The cops tried to disrupt it, but I made the call to disperse on time.
They all wanted to watch Eren's match, either way.
Shimano
...To think that dumbass Hazz would fall for this. Hah.
Turns out the ones fighting against his government are funded by the same people he thinks are protecting it.
Ruber
I trust you as a leader a lot more than that old man.
You've always known how to take care of your boys, Shimano.
Unlike him... You have a plan.
Shimano
Indeed I do. And I'm patiently waiting for when the time for the next step comes.
Heavyweight
Boss! I've got the hit list for our next set of jobs. Do you wanna take a look at it?
Shimano
Of course I wanna look at it! What kind of patriarch do you think I am?
I'm not gonna allow you to just roam around doing whatever you want. The family's business comes first!
So, what's going on? Anything out of the ordinary?
Heavyweight
It's just... The President's name. It's included there! And the one who called for it is...
Shimano
Hand me that shit...
Hah... Ahahahahahahah! Who could've guessed?
Not even his son can stand him! His own flesh and blood ordered a hit on the old sack of shit!
Heavyweight
Yeah. I was surprised too. Are we going to... Decline-
Shimano
Are you kidding me? Of course not!
Now that I'm officially the second-in-command, he's useless to me.
If anything, he's a hurdle to our success.
It's good that you came to me with this, though.
I couldn't think of anyone more suited for the job!
Heavyweight
Wait... You mean...
Shimano
You're in charge of the hit, Heavyweight. Better get yourself ready.
Heavyweight
...
A-As you wish, boss...
