Before defeating Gi Nattak

Talk to the guy at the entrance

If you haven't talked to Red XIII after entering the first time, and haven't been to Bugenhagen's room

Welcome to Cosmo Canyon. Make yourselves at home.

If you talked to Red XIII after entering the first time, but haven't been to Bugenhagen's room

Since you're here, why don't you listen to Bugenhagen's story?

If you've been to Bugenhagen's room, but haven't gone back to see the hologram show

Did you get to see Bugenhagen's contraption? If you haven't yet, you must!

If you've gone back to Bugenhagen to see the hologram show

Leaving already? But it appears your friends still want to learn more about the planet...

When Bugenhagen is leading you toward Gi cave

Hm? If you're looking for Bugenhagen, he went to the Sealed Door.

Remember, there's a steel door on the way to Bugenhagen's room.

What's that door there for anyhow? It's been closed forever...

Talk to the kid near the fire

Yaaay! Nanaki! Nanaki's back! It's all thanks to this flame!

This fire is called 'Cosmo Candle'. It has burned for generations.

It is a holy flame that protects this canyon.

I heard once, it only went out once, long ago.

The elders said something horrifying occurred, but I really don't know much about it.

After defeating Gi Nattak, before Meteor is summoned

Talk to the guy at the entrance

If Red XIII is in the party

Oh, Nanaki's with you. Make yourselves at home.

If Red XIII is not in the party

Welcome to Cosmo Canyon. Make yourselves at home.

Talk to the kid near the fire

Nanaki, are you leaving again? We want you to stay here forever...

After Meteor is summoned, before defeating Hojo

Talk to the guy at the entrance

Oh, it's you. This is terrible. The color of that unlucky star...

The children are all so scared that they won't even go outside.

I'd rather not see it either...

After defeating Hojo

Go into town

If Red XIII is in the party

Nanaki, it's really bad. Ever since Bugenhagen returned from that last trip, he doesn't seem well.

Why don't you hurry and see Bugenhagen?

If Red XIII is not in the party

Bugenhagen seems rather down ever since he returned from that trip.

I'm worried something might happen to Bugenhagen now of all times...

Talk to the guy after visiting Bugenhagen

Bugenhagen is what keeps our hearts strong...

Talk to the guy with yellow hat

Before Meteor is summoned

When he's doing ???

Whoa!!

Don't scare me like that. I almost fell over.

Before defeating Gi Nattak, if he hasn't offered to fix the buggy

So this is Cosmo Canyon... Quite a mysterious place.

Have you come to seek the 'Study of Planet Life'"?

That's it

Yeah? I heard there's an awesome observatory here. I'd like to see it if I have a chance.

No

If the buggy broke outside

Oh yeah? What? The car broka down!?

Why don't you look around Cosmo Canyon, while I fix the car?

If you didn't break the buggy

Oh, really?

There really isn't much else to see here.

My, my. Well I guess there aren't any real roads you could call roads, around here.

If that's the case, leave it to me. I may not look like it, but I'm pretty knowledgeable about mechanics.

Please get some rest while your car gets fixed.

After defeating Gi Nattak

If he offered to fix the buggy but hasn't told you he's done yet

The repair on your car is completed.

Now you should be able to go where ever you want.

How much do I owe...?

No charge! You'd do the same for me, right?

Please, take 1000 gil

If you have enough

Are you sure...? Well, all right. Thank you.

Oh yeah. Did you stay at the inn already?

There was a bottle on the sofa there a couple of days ago...was it yours?

If you don't have enough

...You don't even have that much. Don't tease me, okay?

I guess you're right

Much obliged

Otherwise

Mmm...... I think the teachings of the 'Study of Planet Life' are true.

But can people used to Mako energy ever go back...?

After Meteor is summoned, before Bugenhagen goes on the airship with you

Mmm...... I can't be standing here talking about the 'Study of Planet Life'.

I think I'll be heading back to my homeland now...

Talk to the girl

Before Meteor is summoned

Oh, welcome.

The people of this canyon hate to compete. So almost everything here are replicas.

But that's all right. Some of them you really can use.

After Meteor is summoned

Welcome. You still want more weapons? You sure are weird...

Uh, I mean, it's weird. if there weren't people like you, I'll be out of business. Heh, heh, heh...sweat...!

Now hiring!

No experience necessary. Looking for emotionally stable people who do not get excited at the sight of weapons!

Door behind weapon shop, talk to the elder

*** COSIN1_1: Elder's Room ***

Before seeing Bugenhagen's hologram

Elder Hargo:

Where did I put it...? I know it's around here...

After seeing Bugenhagen's hologram, before Meteor is summoned

Elder Hargo:

Ahh, here it is.

My job is to gather all the legends and the knowledge of the planet and to make a book.

Then, even when I return to the planet, the children may still be taught about many things...

If Bugenhagen hasn't led you to Gi cave yet

Elder Hargo:

Mmm? Oh, we have guests. Good, good.

Elder Hargo:

I know, I know.

You came to ask me something, right? Am I right?

It's about the Promised Land

Elder Hargo:

...The Promised Land. So you want to know...?

There is no one place called the Promised Land. That's what I believe.

No no, it does exist. Hmmm......you can say that too.

In other words, it doesn't exist for us, but it did for the Ancients.

The Promised Land is the resting place of the Ancients.

The life of the Ancients is one continuous journey. A journey to grow trees and plants, produce animals, and to raise Mako energy.

Their harsh journeys continued throughout their lives...

The place they returned to after their long journey... Their burial land is the Promised Land.

Huh? Supreme Happiness? I believe that, for the Ancients, it was the moment that they were able to return to their Planet,

At that moment they were released from their fate, and gained their supreme happiness...

At least that's what I believe. I really don't know whether or not it's the truth now.

Not really

Elder Hargo:

Oh, that's not what you're here for?

I'd appreciate it if you don't talk to me about such foolish things as legends and old wives tales.

By the way, those that came with you are all at the Cosmo Candle.

Are you leaving?

After Meteor is summoned, before defeating Hojo

Elder Hargo:

Mm...oh, this? This is the book of Stars. I'm just finishing it.

Nothing is meaningless. If I do this then, someday, someone will run across it.

The Ancients did the same. That is how we know about them, right? Maybe my book also......

After defeating Hojo

Elder Hargo:

I think Bugenhagen has foreseen it.

About the planet... About Nanaki... And, about himself...

But, Bugenhagen would never say that. All he says is 'Ho Ho Hoooo'...

Second floor inside the doorway above stairs on the left side of town

*** COSIN2: Gate of Naught ***

Before Bugenhagen leads you to Gi cave

Talk to the kid

Bugenhagen sealed this door shut.

How'd he do that? With super glue?

After defeating Gi Nattak

Talk to the kid

Nope... It doesn't open... How'd he seal it? With a huge magnet?

Check the place where Bugenhagen opened the seal

It seems like the only one that can open it is Bugenhagen...

First door on the right near the sealed door, talk to the guy

*** COSMIN2: Materia Shop ***

Before Meteor is summoned

First time

...num...yawn...Sir,... You...forgot......your... ...change.

Afterwards, if you haven't shopped from him yet

...num...Yes, I'm coming...

Are you here to shop?

That's right

Oh...is that so... You're here to shop?

I'm sorry! We hardly ever get any customers so...... Oh, but I DO have confidence in our materia!

No, what's your problem?

Oh...is that so... then leave me alone and let me...yawn...sleep...

If you've shopped from him

I'm...I'm so sorry! It seems as though I've become so used to being lazy...

After Meteor is summoned

First time

Oh man... Everything is over, once the meteor hits...

I've been selling Materia for 10 years now, ever since I was 16. What have I been doing with my life...?

Welcome! Oh, it's nothing. Now, please make yourselves comfortable!

Thank you very much!

Door on the bottom right near the sealed door

*** COSMIN3: Cosmo Canyon ***

Before Meteor is summoned

Talk to the woman

If Cait Sith was not in the party when you first entered Cosmo Canyon

Oh man, I'm so busy. I need more help. Mummer...complaint...

If Cait Sith is here, and just asked about dinner

All right, all right. I'm making it right now.

...But I wonder which one is going to eat...

Otherwise

Those two...uh, Anyway, are you two friends? It really seems strange.

After Meteor is summoned, before defeating Hojo

Talk to the woman

Hmm... I wonder what's going to happen now...

Talk to the kid

Don't worry, mom! All of us just need to go through that door!

Mr. Bugenhagen sealed it so we wouldn't have to worry about it!

But what's a seal...?

After defeating Hojo

Talk to the woman

No need to be sad, even if something should happen. Everything will return to the planet... Bugenhagen says so.

Just the thought of something happening to Bugenhagen...worries me.

Talk to the kid

What's wrong with Bugenhagen? Is he sick?

Oh, welcome home. You want dinner first? Or......" Dinner Or......

All right, it'll be ready in no time...

Oh honey...

Wh...who are you! You...you can't just come barging into my home uninvited!!

[Turtle's Paradise] No. 5

Our cocktails are good but our wine is the best!

Please stop in to "Turtle's Paradise"!!

Turtle's Paradise poster

Talk to the bartender

Before Meteor is summoned

Welcome. How 'bout our original cocktail, 'Cosmo Candle?'

A drink now and then is good for you. It'll relax you a bit. ...If you know when to stop.

After Meteor is summoned

How about our original cocktail, 'Lifestream'?

You should forget your troubles with a drink. We humans sure are weak creatures...

If you haven't got Full Cure materia from the item shop yet

That reminds me. I heard that someone here in Cosmo Canyon is selling some Healing Materia.

Talk to the elder

Before seeing Bugenhagen's hologram

Elder Bugah:

Is that so? You brought Nanaki back here?

Yeah, thanks.

After seeing Bugenhagen's hologram, before Bugenhagen leads you toward Gi cave

Elder Bugah:

Mmm...

Elder Bugah:

What is it?

The story of the Ancients...

Elder Bugah:

You can't talk of the Ancients, without mentioning Professor Gast.

He used to come here sometimes.

He was a Shinra scholar who spent his life studying the Ancients.

He was a serious person, never would have figured he'd be with the Shinra.

Must've been about 30 years ago, when he found the corpse of an Ancient. He was elated!

If I recall...he named it 'Jenova' and was doing a lot of research...

One day, he showed up here, looking real distressed.

He was mumbling something about Jenova not being an Ancient and that he'd done a terrible thing...

He's been missing since then. I heard that he never went back to Shinra

So, if you ever see Professor Gast, I want you to tell him...

That the old man that likes to drink in Cosmo Canyon, wanted to hear about the Ancients.

Well, there's lots to talk about,

but most things about the Ancients are all legend and folk tales, and no one knows the truth.

Nothing

Elder Bugah:

...hmm. That's no fun... I wanna tell a story.

Elder Bugah:

By the way, your friends are all in front of the 'Cosmo Candle'

Are you all leaving now?

After Bugenhagen leads you toward Gi cave, before Meteor is summoned

Elder Bugah:

Mmm. I'm starting to feel good now. That bartender's cocktails always hit the spot.

After Meteor is summoned, before defeating Hojo

Elder Bugah:

Live with the planet, die with the planet.

Maybe this is the way it should be. Who knows? I'm full of booze...

It's when I think about the children. I wonder if we could just save our own children.

After defeating Hojo

Elder Bugah:

Where is the Promised Land...? Maybe Bugenhagen knows.

Isn't Nanaki starting to notice? The reason why Bugenhagen sent him away from the canyon...

Talk to the inn keeper upstairs

Before defeating Gi Nattak

Welcome to 'Shildra Inn'.

It'll be 100 gil a night. Would you like to stay?

Yes

No thanks

After defeating Gi Nattak, before Meteor is summoned

Welcome to 'Shildra Inn'" As long as there are guests, our lights will always be on.

It is 100 Gil a night. Would you like to stay?

Yes

No thanks

After Meteor is summoned, while Tifa is party leader

Welcome to 'Shindra Inn'. It's times like this a nice, soft bed will do you good.

It's 100 Gil a night. Would you like to stay?

Please

No thank you

While Cid is party leader

Welcome to 'Shildra Inn'" As long as there are guests, our lights will always be on.

It will be 100 Gil a night, Like a room?

Yeah

No, thanks

After Cloud comes back as party leader

Welcome to 'Shildra Inn'" At times like this, when a nice, soft bed will do you good.

It will be 100 Gil a night. Would you like a room?

Yes

No, thanks

If you chose to stay and have enough money

Have a great dream of the stars...

Come back and talk to him again after staying

Were you able to hear the stars whispers?

Well then, please come again.

If you chose to stay but don't have enough money

I'm sorry, but you don't seem to have enough for a room...

If you chose not to stay

Well then, please come again.

In the inn's bedroom

Elixir: in the barrel between the fridge and the couch

Door behind the bar, talk to the kid

*** COSMIN4: Nanaki's Room ***

After Meteor is summoned, before Bugenhagen goes on the airship with you

It's not that I'm afraid of that big star.

It's just that, uh, I have a stomach ache... That's why I'm not moving. That's the truth!

After Bugenhagen goes on the airship with you, before defeating Hojo

If Red XIII is in the party

That Nanaki's slick! He said, 'I'll protect this canyon'! But he didn't. I don't care about Nanaki anymore...

Red XIII:

Sorry...I'm really sorry. But now, I have......

If Red XIII is not in the party

Both Nanaki and Mr.Bugenhagen are gone... I feel so lonely...

After defeating Hojo

He's finally come home, but Mr.Bugenhagen doesn't seem well...

I want to hear Mr.Bugenhagen's talk with Nanaki like we used to do...

If you've visited Bugenhagen and Red XIII is in the party

Nanaki, is it true that Mr.Bugenhagen left on a journey? Then that means he's better, right? He IS going to come back soon, right?

Red XIII:

......

...Don't worry. Grandpa will come back floating, saying 'Ho Ho Hoooo' again...

Yea, that's right! 'Ho Ho Hoooo'!

Talk to the kid again after this conversation

It's Ho Ho Hoooo! Ho Ho Hoooo!

Inside door on top of the ladder on the right side of town

*** COSMIN7: Item Store ***

Talk to the guy

Before Meteor is summoned

Hello. Looking for anything in particular?

After Meteor is summoned

Hi. Of course, our store's open.

No need to fear. I have the 'Study of Planet Life' right here.

No, maybe I AM a bit afraid. But, whenever I'm reading 'Study of Planet Life,' I can forget all my fears.

Go through the door on the right side, and wrap around the back of shop

Full Cure materia: on the table

Elixir, Magic Source: on the ground

*** BUGIN1A: Observatory ***

After defeating Gi Nattak, before Meteor is summoned

If Red XIII is in the party

Ho Ho Hoooo. I'm glad you're back, Nanaki.

I hate to ask you but, please look after Nanaki from now on.

If Red XIII is not in the party

Bugenhagen:

Ho Ho Hoooo. You people.

Where is Nanaki? I hope he's not bothering you.

After Meteor is summoned, before Cid becomes party leader

First time

Bugenhagen:

Ho Ho Hoooo.

...no time to be humming now. The planet is nearing imminent death.

Where is Cloud? Wasn't he with you?

Tifa:

That's why we're here... Cloud... Cloud has...

Bugenhagen:

I see... Cloud has......

It's true that there are several places on the planet where Lifestream is gathered.

But most of those places are below the surface where humans cannot reach them.

There's only one place An island floating in the Southern Sea... "What did you say? I haven't left here in years... No good. I can't remember.

Afterwards

Bugenhagen:

In the Southern Seas I think there was an island where Lifestream is.

But even if you find Cloud there...

Life's dream is a mass of spiritual energy,

and one person alone probably couldn't stand against such an incredible spiritual current...

After Cid becomes party leader, before finishing all the Huge Materia quests

First time

Bugenhagen:

Ho Ho Hoooo.

...no time to be humming now. The planet is nearing imminent death.

But is this perhaps, what the planet wanted? The planet actually wanted to end like this?

I don't believe so. Were it not so, you people would still have much to do.

And myself too. Come back whenever you are in need of my knowledge.

Afterwards

Bugenhagen:

Listening to you and Nanaki speak has made me feel young again.

Ho Ho Hoooo. Might sound a little sarcastic.

After Cid becomes party leader, before doing the submarine minigame

Bugenhagen:

You are using Shinra materia, as a weapon?

Materia is highly dense spiritual energy. A shred of the planet's life. It should not be used as a weapon.

We must stop using it... or the planet will become weakened.

Cloud:

Of course, Cid!

Check the machine in the middle

Before Bugenhagen shows you how to use it

Bugenhagen:

Ho Ho Hoooo. That's a machine only I can use.

After Bugenhagen shows you how to use it

After Bugenhagen goes onto the airship with you, before defeating Hojo

Talk to the elder

Elder Hargo:

I hope great Bugenhagen will take care and not overexert himself.

'Ho Ho Hoooo.' I may be light, But I'm not as young as Nanaki.

Oops. That will only get you angry. You're just like me. Ho ho ho.

After defeating Hojo

If Red XIII is in the party

Red XIII:

Grandfather!!

Bugenhagen:

...Nanaki...? ...you're still......here?

Red XIII:

I can't leave you like this, grandfather...!

It's the duty of my... Seto's son, to guard this canyon and her people...

Bugenhagen:

...listen, Nanaki. I think you may already know.

If you have any mission in life, it is not to defend this valley.

Bugenhagen:

Look at the withering mountain grass. Listen to the warble of the new born chocobo's.

Look always to the eternal flow of time which is far greater than the span of a human life.

It will teach you more, than staying here in the valley...

What you will see will eventually become a part of life's dream.

For my children...... And for your children......

So please, Nanaki... Go with Cloud... And with your eyes...your ears...

Red XIII:

.........

Bugenhagen:

Ho Ho.......Hoooo. Now, now. Don't look like that. I'm all right.

It's a wide world and you must go out and see it... You may even find your life's mate. You never know.

Red XIII:

Grandfather......

Bugenhagen:

Oh yes...take this along. I think it will look good on you now.

Ho Ho......

Red XIII:

Grandfather!? Grandfather!!!

...oh yes. This is for you.

Red XIII:

ddd... Don't scare me like that, grandfather!

Bugenhagen:

What? You surprised yourself. Now take this.

Received "Limited Moon"!

Bugenhagen:

Ho Ho.......Hoooo. Do not worry about me. I'll be watching the future of the planets.

*** COS_BTM2: Cosmo Candle ***

Cloud:

Red XIII... Is Bugenhagen...?

Red XIII:

......

Grandpa told me that he's going away again!

Cloud:

Away...?

Red XIII:

It seems like he really liked that Airship.

He told me he couldn't stay still and just zipped out of here!

He even gave me a gift, look!

Get Limited Moon

Red XIII:

Wait a minute. Aren't you supposed to give gifts AFTER you come back?

Ha ha......Grandpa sure is strange! Haa...ha ha......ha......

Cloud:

Hmm... So maybe we'll run into him again somewhere.

Red XIII:

Yeah... maybe...

Thanks, Cloud......

If Red XIII is not in the party

Talk to Bugenhagen

Bugenhagen:

Ho Ho.......Hoooo. You......?

It's been a while...since I've been out. I think I must have...tired myself out a bit.

Ahh......don't tell Nanaki. He'll only worry...

It's impossible. At least for humans.
