    Are you looking for meme-worthy quotes, then? Otherwise, someone just might post transcripts of the trailers and gameplay footage to be organized by speaker.


    Barrett: "I'll take you to Heeell!"

    Hmm, I don't have the Adam Jensen trailer here but I don't think it's Adam saying the "Men like us..." quote.

    Yeah, sorry. Just the notable "shorties" really.

    You're right, so removed.
    In fact, the speaker sounds Scottish. Hmmm.
    You can hear the line right at the beginning.

    Yeah, seems safe to credit the line to him. We can always change it if we find out otherwise.

    Here's a compilation. And I think knowing a couple of first names (and one last name) in advance won't kill you lot, I'm seriously tired of spoiler-tagging them all the time:

    Adam Jensen: The year is 2027. It's a time of great innovation and technological advancement. It's also a time of chaos and conspiracy. I don't even know whose side I'm on...

    Eliza Cassan: Breaking news. The riots continue in the streets of Detroit, protestors rallying outside of Sarif Industries, one of the world's leaders in the controvertial science of human augmentation.

    David Sarif: These people, Adam, they're like ghosts. Always in the shadows, always hiding behind lies and proxy soldiers. I need you to find them. They cannot stop us. They cannot stop the future.

    Adam Jensen: I never had a choice of what happened to me.
    Megan Reed: Adam!

    Scientist: How do you feel, Adam? The body may heal, the mind is not always so resilient.

    Adam Jensen: Corporations have more power than the government. Everyone's fighting for power, for control.
    Mind-hack victim: Help... please!

    Lawrence Barrett: I'll take you to Hell!
    Eliza Cassan: Police have opened fire on the crowd!

    Lawrence Barrett: You'll never find them!
    Adam Jensen: I'll never stop looking.

    Adam Jensen: You got a name?
    Faridah Malik: Tong Se Hong.

    Tong Se Hong: What is it you think mr. Tong do for you anyway?
    Adam Jensen: I'm looking for cybersecurity specialist named Arnie/Harvey Van Bruggen. He had a job go bad, and now he's on the run from the people who hired him.
    Tong Se Hong: You don't even know who you're going up against and you think you have a chance?

    Tong Se Hong: Van Bruggen is very popular.
    Belltower Merc: You've been paid to forget that name! Wang says your boys were snooping around that dockyard.
    Tong Se Hong: I'm just looking out for you!

    Tong Se Hong: We planted explosives in the equipment shed. Call the boys. Blow that base.
    Adam Jensen: I'm going after the explosives.
    Faridah Malik: Roger that.
    Adam Jensen: Once I set them off, the guards will come running. Give me free access to the ship.
    Adam Jensen: !

    David Sarif: I'm sorry for what happened to you. To her. We are being attacked by an invisible enemy. They consceal, they manipulate... They're more than human. They're like you. Find them.
    Adam Jensen: All the hate, all the violence, all the lies, all of it has a source, and they're tearing this world apart. They control everything, even our minds, and I have to stop them.

    Lawrence Barrett: Well lookie here, we got us a boyscout.
    Eliza Cassan: It's not the end of the world, but you can see it from here.

    Adam Jensen: So much for expectations.
    Francis Pritchard: Head for the elevator. It'll take you directly to the penthouse.

    Adam Jensen: I'm here.
    Francis Pritchard: Good, but you'll have to work fast.
    Francis Pritchard: Jensen, you might want to think about leaving soon.
    Adam Jensen: I'm almost through.
    Francis Pritchard: They're about to get you. Get to the hangar bay, fast!
    Computer: Access granted.

    Megan Reed: You overthink everything, Adam. The work we're doing is good. We're helping people overcome their physical limitations.
    Adam Jensen: Yeah, except most of our clients seem to be DoD. (Department of Defense) There something I should know... about this place... about Sarif?
    Megan Reed: I can't believe you were asking about David. You've been here long enough to know neural augmentations that make you think faster, react quicker, they can really improve a life. Everbody's lives. David's talked about it for years.
    Adam Jensen: Yeah, heh, he is a talker.

    David Sarif: All those purists out there, accusing us of tampering with the natural order, when all Megan's done is figure out how to unlock the potential that exists within our own DNA!

    Alarm Voice: Laboratory Subsection Environmental Malfunction.

    Faridah Malik: Welcome back, Jensen. Didn't think we'd see you around here for a while yet.
    Adam Jensen: You know how it goes, Malik. Duty calls.
    Faridah Malik: You sure you're ready for this?
    Adam Jensen: Only one way to find out.

    Faridah Malik: Twice the scum in half the space. Hang on, I'm going in.
    Faridah Malik: There's a nightclub in this sector called the Hive. If our hacker went to ground here, chances are the owner will know.
    Adam Jensen: You got a name?
    Faridah Malik: Tong Se Hong. And Jensen, rumor is he's tied to the Triads.
    Faridah Malik: Call me if you need any backup!

    Bouncer: The Hive is a members only club, laoai. Without a membership card, I can't let you in.
    Adam Jensen: You telling me I gotta pay to get in this dive?
    Bouncer: We've got a reputation to keep. We can't let just anyone get in here.
    Adam Jensen: Just anyone with the money.
    Bouncer: No pay, no play. You want in or not?
    Adam Jensen: Here, take it.
    Bouncer: Thank you, sir. Here is your membership card. Welcome to the Hive. I'm sure you'll enjoy our establishment.

    Bouncer #2(?): I'll be watching you, laoai.

    Bartender: What can I get you?
    Adam Jensen: I'm looking for Tong.
    Bartender: Everyone wants to talk to Tong. Check the VIP lounge upstairs.

    Adam Jensen: You work here?
    VIP Bartender/Tong Se Hong: Yeah... you could say that.
    Adam Jensen: Good. I need to see your boss.
    VIP Bartender/Tong Se Hong: Really? Well, I'm sorry, gwailo. Mister Tong Se Hong sees no-one today.
    Adam Jensen: Look, I didn't come halfway around the world to take no for an answer. Do us both a favor and tell me where he is.
    VIP Bartender/Tong Se Hong: Or what? You get mad and tear down a few walls with those enhancements of yours? This place isn't named the Hive for nothing.
    VIP Bartender/Tong Se Hong: It's got plenty of worker bees come out the pantry to stop you. What is it you think Mr. Tong do for you anyway?
    Adam Jensen: I'm looking for someone. A cybersecurity specialist named Arnie/Harvey Van Bruggen. You know him?
    VIP Bartender/Tong Se Hong: Never heard of him. What he do? Steal your girl? Owe you money?
    Adam Jensen: He had a job go bad, and now he's on the run from the people who hired him. But you knew that already, because a man like Mr. Tong doesn't hire idiots.
    Adam Jensen: And this is the first place people like Van Bruggen come when they need ...help. So stop wasting my time, and take me to Tong.
    VIP Bartender/Tong Se Hong:You've got it backwards, boy. You wasting my time. Van Bruggen is minor leage player. Tong knows who he is, he just don't care. He's got bigger things to worry about.
    Adam Jensen: The people hunting Van Bruggen work on an international scale. If he is not on your radar yet, then Tong is way behind. I can help him catch up. But only if we pool our information.
    VIP Bartender/Tong Se Hong: Don't try to bull a bullter! Van Bruggen is only game in town! You know it, I know it, so of course Tong knows it. You can tell us nothing we don't already know.
    Adam Jensen: All I need from Van Bruggen is information. The same information his enemies are trying to keep from getting out.
    Adam Jensen: There's no point in them going after him anymore, once he tells me what he knows. So if Tong lets me see him now, in the long run, it'll make his life easier.
    VIP Bartender/Tong Se Hong: You don't even know who you're going up against, and you think you have a chance? Forget it, guailo. You not going to see Tong, ever. You don't know it, but I'm saving your life.

    ---THE HIVE---SECURITY ALERT
    The Bull has been asking questions about our little basement club. Has someone broken the first rule?!... If I find out, I WILL cut off more than a finger.
    The basement is not a play area for employees to bring 'guests'! The new security code for employee access only is 0415. Last Warning. -shouhuo zhu

    Tong Se Hong: I thought you had better manners. Don't you know to knock before entering a room?
    Belltower Merc: This isn't a social call, Tong.
    Tong Se Hong: Never is with you Belltower boys. You should be happy! We gave you the hacker. So, what do you want now?
    Belltower Merc: Wang says your boys were snooping around that dockyard. Stay away from that ship.
    Tong Se Hong: Van Bruggen is very popular all of a sudden. You sure he's secure?
    Belltower Merc: You've been paid to forget that name, and you will if you know what's good for ya!
    Tong Se Hong: Come! I'm just looking out for you!

    Tong Se Hong: Bobby! The hacker's at the dock! Time to spring him!
    Bobby: Now, boss?
    Tong Se Hong: Yes, you waste of bone and meat! We planted explosives in the equipment shed. Call the boys. Blow that base. Grab the hacker.

    Adam Jensen: Malik. I'm going after the explosives. But once I have them, I'll need a good place to set them off.
    Faridah Malik: Roger that. I'll see if I can locate an area close to the ships that'll create maximum confusion and get back to you.

    Belltower guard #1: A lot of extra bodies on duty tonight. You know what's going on?
    Belltower guard #2: Sanchez says the boss called in some backup. He wants to make sure the ship sails without a hitch, I guess.
    Belltower guard #1: Sanchez? Yeah. There's a relief...
    (there's more in the Moscow video, but it's unintelligeble, and they die too quickly in the others)
    Belltower guard #2: ... boss wanted me(?) to catch up.
    Belltower guard #2: Just... keep your eyes open.

    Adam Jensen: Malik. I've found the explosives.
    Faridah Malik: I dunno if I'd trust Triad bomb tech, Jensen.
    Adam Jensen: No choice. Once I set them off, the guards will come running. Give me free access to the ship. You have a spot for me?
    Faridah Malik: Yeah. The dock manager's office is at the back of the warehouse. A guy named Wang. Plant them on his desk and it should do the trick... I'll be monitoring in case something goes wrong.

    Random Belltower Grunt: I'm on the move!
    Random Belltower Grunt: Hold it!
    Random Belltower Grunt: Now get some firepower in here!
    Random Belltower Grunt: Gonna find him!

    Adam Jensen: !

    Lawrence Barrett: Well lookie here! We got us a boyscout! I gotta say you've done good to get this far, better than anyone gave you credit for, Jensen.
    Lawrence Barrett: But, this is where it ends...

    Great stuff Tecman - but where do you get your information? You don't work for EM do you?

  18. #18
    I actually went through all the vids and wrote it down manually. I keep a local folder with pretty much all DX:HR related material released because of my SA thread, so it was just a matter of patience and effort, really.

    Wasn't fun, especially the E3 *can't hear * demo.

    I meant more how do you know the full names of certain characters? I've not heard certain names (e.g. Lawrence Barrett) used in any interviews or previews, though I could've missed them I guess. Are they mentioned in the comic / novel maybe?
