Ambient dialogue[edit]

Ministry of Security Watch: It's SO unfair. I never get a turn on that.
Ministry of Security Watch: Get off that zip line, now!
Worker (1): So, how'd you get that big ol' scar of yours, old-timer?
Supervisor: By not wearing PPE.
Supervisor: The number one rule of mining and salvaging: always wear PPE.
Worker (1): PPE? What's that stand for?
Supervisor: Personal protective equipment.
Supervisor: Hey, kid, word of advice: watch out for the naga. They've been lurkin' about as of late.
Supervisor: Can't be trusted.
Worker (1): But isn't this their territory we're mining on top of? They're probably pissed about that.
Worker (1): I know I would be.
Supervisor: Hmph. Don't be a serpent sympathizer, kid.
Worker (1): So what exactly is this big tower for, anyway?
Supervisor: Oh, this? This is where we hide all the dead bodies...
Worker (1): Wh-What?
Supervisor: I'm just yankin' yer chain. It's for storing and processing jade.
Dock Worker (1): I heard the miners accidentally dug too deep and flooded the basin. Abandoned all their work.
Dock Worker (2): Damn...
Xunlai Jade Security: This area is off limits until further notice.
Xunlai Jade Security: The miners who were digging here, geniuses that they were, woke up a goddamn Jade Maw.
Xunlai Jade Security: I do NOT get paid enough to deal with this crap.
By the Argo Crawler
Laborer (1): We own and control machines. Not the other way around.
Laborer (1): As long as we remember that, I don't think there's anything wrong with embracing new tech.
Laborer (2): Ugh... I suppose.
Laborer (3): I'm just as good—if not better—as some soulless machine.
Laborer (4): I mean...mining's a pretty dangerous job, friend. This "soulless machine" minimizes casualties.
Laborer (5): Gods[sic] I hate this damn thing. It's stealing work from living, breathing people.
Worker (2): Wow. Look at the size of that thing!
Worker (3): Technology sure has come a long way.
Jade Quarry Salvager: It's so deep, but full of treasure!
