Transcript:
(Nerd and Lennox are up at Old Growth, beginning to follow a blood trail and not saying much)

UC: LENNOX. LENNOX. LENNOX. TEST ME. A RED WISH IN THE NIGHT. HE HEARS. HE SMILES.

Nerd: (gasps) Oh my god!

(Lennox gets the Hunger curse)

Lennox: Ohhh! Oh dear.

Nerd: I think you p*ssed off Murder Furby!

Lennox: Don’t know what I did, but I think I did, you’re right.

Nerd: Yeah. Sorry, UC, I’m gonna call him Murder Furby, is that alright with you? (under breath, after a pause) God…

(Lennox gets the Gorgon curse as well)

Nerd: Gorgon too, man…

Lennox: Aw no, ahahaha… I musta really done something.

Nerd: He is really out to get us! Or maybe just you specifically - what the heck did you do?

Lennox: I don’t know! (referring to curses) Do you have ‘em too? I’m pretty sure it’s just me, but I dunno…

Nerd: I’m the one who’d follow DANCE-FOR-US!

Lennox: I’ve been pretty neutral, but this is something else, man.

Nerd: Yeah, we out here name-dropping her tonight.

(longish pause. Both try to continue with the Find Missing Person mission)

Lennox: I’m still trying to follow the trail…

Nerd: Yeah… (another pause) Well?

UC: DONE? DONE. NOTHING. LENNOX WANTS ONE DAY … TO DO. THE STRONG ACT. AMBITION IS NOTHING. THE ACT, LENNOX, THE ACT

Lennox: Oh. I remember. No, maybe that’s fair.

Nerd: Okay, who’d you send a light to?

Lennox: (trying to get into 922 Hoadly) Damn, I really can’t get in this house… Uhhh, I’m - I dunno…

Nerd: The front window’s open. (goes through window herself)

Lennox: I’m afraid to open my mouth ‘cause I gotta say, Hunger isn’t as bad as I thought it was but Gorgon sucks.

Nerd: (sighs) Yeah, that’s rough. UC, tell your Murder Furby he’s really not helping. (goes down into Instrument Supply, notices Lennox’s low health bar) You okay?

Lennox: (jumps on someone, heals back to full) Yeah, I’m fine. There’s just a bunch around this house and I seem to be getting turned around.

Nerd: Oh, okay.

Lennox: Are you still following the trail?

Nerd: Yes. It’s headed into 920 Observation, so if you want to find a different house you may.

Lennox: Okay, that’s fair. I’m going to try to make sure - oh fuck no. I’m gonna do - I’m gonna try to not die. That’s the plan.

Nerd: Yeah. Good plan.

Lennox: You know.

Nerd: I like it.

UC: HE DOES NOT OFFER AID. HE OFFERS THE PIT, AND SAYS. CLIMB.

Lennox: Huh.

Nerd: Typical. (Shape comes out, targeting Lennox) Oh! Is that just sin, or do we ha - hmm… I’m gonna try something. Hey! THEE-I-DARE! (nothing happens to Nerd except a Lucid spotting her) F*ck…

Lennox: Someone’s gonna make someone mad… Don’t - please don’t make any more. (chuckles nervously)

Nerd: Well, as long as you make the right people mad…

Lennox: Ah f*ck. I’m not too worried about it. Damn. I think - I actually think - I don’t think he - I think the Shape’s just because I’ve been downing people.

Nerd: Yeah. Probably, but doesn’t hurt to check, right? (finds the end of the trail in Host Conditioning. The kid is dead) God d*mn…

UC: NAME OF A DEAD REBEL. MEWLING AND FEEDING NICETIES TO CHILDREN IN THEIR NIGHTLY WEAKNESS. SO?

(photo of exit from automated “HQ” pops up, sending UC’s text underneath the mission readout in the top right)

Lennox: Aw, I couldn’t see the last - that message ‘cause the picture popped up…

Nerd: Yeah. I - um… (referring to the fact that she’s recording, but doesn’t want to break character) I’ll have a record of this. You know, how phones keep everything.

Lennox: Mhm.

Nerd: Oh god. (pauses to disarm a speed trap) Murder Furby decides to kick our sh*t in, and you f - we find a dead person.

Lennox: Oh god.

Nerd: (sarcastic) That’s wonderful. Having a wonderful night tonight.

Lennox: (talking to the Shape) Nonono, c’mon c’mon, gimme - awww…

UC: THEY SMELL HIM ON YOU. IN YOU. THEY ARE COMING.

Lennox: D*mn.

Nerd: Who’s “they”?

(Lennox gets suppressed)

Nerd: Nooo, god… F*ck Host Conditioning actually. I’m comin’!

Lennox: I really got my ass handed to me, not gonna lie.

Nerd: Yeah, you kinda did…

Lennox: I think that was pretty fair.

Nerd: (sighs) Hey. UC. If you’re still here, I haven’t given up on dance mom.

UC: YOU SEE? AMBITION. NOT STRENGTH. ONE DAY… Wh4neen 21q3h4 when when when

Nerd: Oh. Goodbye Murder Furby, hello UC, how you doing?

UC: when when you you learn learn to to hate hate

Nerd: Learn to hate?

Lennox: I seem to be grabbing on to my phone so hard that my fist has gone through the phone. (laughs)

Nerd: (snickers) Oops!

Lennox: I am so angry right now, it’s unbelievable.

Nerd: (another sigh) I’m coming… (referring to what she said earlier about dance mom) UC, you know that means I haven’t given up on you by extension, right?

Lennox: (checking Discord?) Lots of Voices joining in, I see…

Nerd: You can beat him eventually. We can beat him eventually.

UC: he he knows knows

Nerd: Knows what?

UC: he’s counting counting counting on it

(Nerd reaches Lennox and revives them)

Nerd: Counting on…?

Lennox: Thank you.

Nerd: Counting on what? Lucid in the backyard. Multiple Lucids.

Lennox: Oh. Thank you for saying that.

Nerd: There’s multiple Lucids.

UC: hope

Nerd: Hope.

Lennox: Are we heading to the exit?

Nerd: I really hope you’re not telling us - not to hope. The h*ll else we got left? I’m heading that - that way. Not leaving just yet, but..

Lennox: Okay, that’s fair. I won’t either.

Nerd: (quietly) Hope.

Lennox: Someone was really mad… (laughs)

Nerd: Yeah… Murder Furby be like that.

Lennox: Which is a shame, ‘cause I was friendly with one of his top stalkers the other - a couple weeks ago.

Nerd: Oh? Who was that?

Lennox: Chaos Agent, I think?

Nerd: Kirb?

Lennox: Mhm.

Nerd: Yeah, he’s SAO’s.

Lennox: Yeah, we got along pretty well, I’d say.

Nerd: He’s alright. Kind of a pain to play against, but.

Lennox: Playing - yeah. Pain to play against, fun to play with, I will say. (Nerd chuckles) It’s always good to have that sort of people on your team - ow.

Nerd: UC. Anyway. (pause, getting back on topic) I’m sorry. You’re not gonna get me not to hope. (Lennox runs past her toward the exit) I’m not headed up there just yet…

Lennox: I was gonna see if the cipher was up here. Maybe I can get another one - let’s get three, make it a little more challenging.

Nerd: (sighs again, dramatically) As if it wasn’t hard enough. (watching Lennox’s blue outline approach a pinged Lucid) With that Lucid and all. (Lucid catches Lennox. Nerd snorts) Speaking of that Lucid… God. I’m not sure, they may be gone…

Lennox: Sounds like it.

UC: you failed. be grateful. he hears hears hears me. i can’t stay

Nerd: You failed. Be grateful. It’s okay. Anything else you want to tell us? Before he… y’know?

(long pause. Nerd sighs a couple times, then starts performing Gift of “Dance” over and over)


(Note: the video goes on longer than this. Final text is around the 13-minute mark. We stuck around for a long time while we weren’t sure if UC was gone or not.)
