  1. Dialog Can: Man, I forgot how big the archives were.

  2. Dialog Can: There must be tons of stuff here. Wonder

    how far back it goes.
  3. Dialog Mend: Well, today's a good day to find out!

  4. Dialog Mend: Let's start with some keywords...

  5. Dialog Mend: Alright, these sectors look promising!

  6. Dialog Can: We could just request a lot of this

    material from the workshop though, couldn't we?
  7. Dialog Can: We could just request a lot of this

    material from the workshop though, couldn't we?
  8. Dialog Mend: Yeah, but bandwidth isn't infinite.

  9. Dialog Mend: Plus, I figured it would be nice to

    get out of the workshop a while.
  10. Dialog Mend: Plus, I figured it would be nice to

    get out of the workshop a while.
  11. Dialog Mend: You know, change up the environment, shake up

    the gears a little.
  12. Dialog Mend: You know, change up the environment, shake up

    the gears a little.
  13. Dialog Can: I don't know how much more shaking your

    gears are gonna need to help this guy out, though.
  14. Dialog Can: I don't know how much more shaking your

    gears are gonna need to help this guy out, though.
  15. Dialog Can: We've gone through all the protocols! And turned

    up nothing!
  16. Dialog Can: Guy's completely fine. Might just be a bug

    in the code.
  17. Dialog Mend: That's what I think too! Which is why

    we're here.
  18. Dialog Mend: That's what I think too! Which is why

    we're here.
  19. Dialog Mend: I think we've ruled out all the mechanical

    reasons.
  20. Dialog Mend: First, we checked the arm motor.

  21. None
  22. Dialog Mend: That seemed to be working fine.

  23. Dialog Mend: Then maybe something's up with the movement motor?

  24. Dialog Mend: But it wasn't that either.

  25. Dialog Mend: We even double-checked the wiring and the circuitry

    just to be sure.
  26. Dialog Mend: Weren't any problems there.

  27. Dialog Can: ...yeah, maybe it is good to be out

    of the workshop for a while. Mend: So all that leaves is the code!
  28. Dialog Can: ...yeah, maybe it is good to be out

    of the workshop for a while. Mend: So all that leaves is the code!
  29. Dialog Can: But...if it is the code...

  30. Dialog Can: That uh...kinda falls outside of our expertise, doesn't

    it?
  31. Dialog Mend: ...Yeah. Yeah, I know.

  32. Dialog Mend: Weld came to us as a last resort,

    though. I don't want to turn him away like everyone else.
  33. Dialog Mend: There's got to be something we can do

    for him. If not fixing the problem, at least figuring out something to help him get back to work.
  34. Dialog Mend: ...Ah, but these results are all so bad!

  35. Dialog Mend: They're all too high level. It's more about

    the theory than the practical stuff.
  36. Dialog Mend: I need something that gets down to the

    fundamentals...
  37. Dialog Can: Hey, so we're looking for something...

  38. Dialog Can: So what we're looking for is...you know...about the

    MIND. Something that really gets down to the root of it. You got anything for us?

  54. Dialog Can: Long ride. Mend: Eh?

  55. Dialog Mend: Oh, this...is a long ride.

  56. Dialog Mend: What could be this far down?

  57. Dialog Mend: What could be this far down?

  58. Dialog Mend: What could be this far down?

  59. None
  60. None
  61. None
  62. Dialog Can: Whoa...print books? Mend: ...These must be ancient.

  63. Dialog Mend: Were they always here under the city...?

  68. Dialog Can: Psy...chology...?

  73. Dialog Mend: Hey, Can, what's your storage capacity again? Can:

    You know exactly what it is.
  74. Dialog Mend: Ooh, we're gonna be here for a while.
