Aeris:

Wow! Let's have fun!

Aeris:

I know this isn't the right time to do this.

Aeris:

Hey, Barret, cheer up!

Barret:

......I ain't in no cheery mood. So jes' leave me alone.

Aeris:

Really? That's too bad.

Aeris:

Let's go!

Tifa:

...whisper...whisper... (Wasn't that a little harsh, Aeris!?)

Aeris:

...whisper...whisper... (Just act normal when this happens)

Tifa:

...whisper... (You think so...?)

Aeris:

Of course!

Aeris:

We're gonna go play...

Barret:

So PLAY! ...messin' round #@^%$!

Don't forget we're after Sephiroth!

Aeris:

...I think he's mad.

Tifa:

He'll be fine. He seems to be doing a little better now.

If you want to date one of the girls, talk to her and choose to go together. If you want to date Barret, talk to Aeris and choose not to take her. Only the first person you talk to has an impact on the dating scene. You can switch people later if you want.

Tifa:

We'd better be careful, Sephiroth might be around.

Go together

Don't go together

Aeris:

I wish we could just forget everything and have fun!

Go together

Don't go together

Red XIII:

......You want to go with me?

Go together

Don't go together

Yuffie:

With me!?

Go together

Don't go together

If you try to leave without a companion, depending on who is most inclined to date you at this point (Red XIII takes Barret's place)

Aeris:

Cloud!

Aeris:

Don't go alone, go with me!

Tifa:

Cloud!

Tifa:

I'll go with you.

Yuffie:

Cloud!

Yuffie:

Let's go together, Cloud!

Man:

Hey boy.

Cloud:

Boy...

Man:

How is it? You having fun?

Mmm, so, you ARE having fun. Well, good, good for you boy.

Cloud:

My name's Cloud. And stop calling me boy.

Dio:

Mmm? Me? I'm the owner of the Gold Saucer. The name's Dio.

Just call me 'Dio'.

Cloud:

......(Not even listening)

Dio:

By the way, boy, do you know what a 'Black Materia' is?

I know what it is

Dio:

Oh, so you do know.

What is it?

Dio:

Ha ha ha ......that, I say, that's a good one, boy! But it's not good to lie. You can't fool me.

Cloud:

Why d'you ask me?

Dio:

Well, a while back, a boy your age came in and asked me if I had a 'Black Materia.'

Dio:

I thought you might know who he was, seein' as how you're both about the same age.

Cloud:

Did he happen to have... a Black Cape...

Dio:

Why yes, yes indeed. And a tattoo on his hand that said '1'.

Cloud:

Where did he go!?

Dio:

Ha ha ha, I have no idea.

Dio:

Well then.

Dio:

I say, stop by the Battle Arena if you like, boy.

You'll probably like it. Many of my collections are on display there.

Dio:

Ha, ha ha.

Go to Wonder Square

*** GAMES: Wonder Square ***

Hey you!! What're you lookin' so down for!?

How 'bout it? Want me to read your fortune!? A bright future! A happy future!

Oh, but don't hold it against me if it's not a great prediction!

Oh, so sorry! I'm a fortune telling machine. The name's...

Name Cait Sith

Cloud:

You can only read the future?

Cait Sith:

You kidding!? I can find missing things, missing people, anything!

Cloud:

Then can you tell me where a man named Sephiroth is?

Cait Sith:

Sephiroth, right!?

Okay, here goes!!

Cloud:

...Ordinary luck. It will be an active fortune.

Give into the good will of others, and something big'll happen after summer. ...wait...what's this?

Cait Sith:

Huh? Let me try again.

Cloud:

Be careful of forgetfulness. Your lucky color is...blue?

Cloud:

...Forget it.

Cait Sith:

Wait, wait give me another chance!

Wait! Let me try it again!

Cloud:

...What the!?

Depending on your companion

Tifa:

What does it say?

Aeris:

What?

Red XIII:

Read it out loud, Cloud

Yuffie:

What is it! Tell us!

Cloud:

What you pursue will be yours. But you will lose something dear.

Cait Sith:

I don't know if it's good OR bad...

This's the first time I ever got something like THIS.

Cait Sith:

Then shall we?

Depending on your companion

Tifa:

Excuse me?

Aeris:

What are you talking about?

Red XIII:

To where?

Yuffie:

Huh?

Cait Sith:

As a fortune teller, I can't help but think about this.

If I don't see what it leads to, I won't be able to relax. That's why I'm going with you!

Depending on your companion

Tifa:

Is it all right, Cloud?

Aeris:

What are we going to do, Cloud?

Red XIII:

Cloud, it's all right with you?

Yuffie:

He's weird! Cloud, don't let him come!

Cait Sith:

I'm comin' with you no matter WHAT you say!

Cloud:

H...hey!

Go to Chocobo Square

*** CHORACE: Chocobo Square ***

What happened?

Yuffie:

What is it?

Cloud:

Sh...!

Cloud:

Shinra soldiers... Even here...

Attention! Dismissed!!

Ugh, ugggh.

Ugh...ugh...a man with a gun...on his arm......

Depending on your companion

Aeris:

It can't be!?

Tifa:

A gun on his arm!?

Red XIII:

...did he!?

Yuffie:

Wow, that's somethin!!

Hold it right there! And stay quiet!!

Dio:

Did you guys do this!?

Cloud:

N...no, it wasn't us!

If you met Dio in Speed Square before coming here

Dio:

I must've been wrong...

Cait Sith:

Hurry and run, it's gonna get ugly.

Cloud:

He......hey!

Dio:

Desert Prison

*** JAIL1: Corel Prison ***

Depending on your companion

Aeris:

You all right?

Tifa:

Cloud, you all right?

Red XIII:

Are you all right?

Yuffie:

Hey, you okay?

Cloud:

Where are we?

Cait Sith:

A desert prison... Corel Prison...

Cloud:

A desert prison?

Cait Sith:

Yup, a natural prison in the middle of the desert... surrounded entirely by quicksand.

Cait Sith:

I heard that once you get in, you never get out...

Cait Sith:

But, there was one special exception...

Depending on your companion

Aeris:

Hey!! Barret!!

Tifa:

Barret!?

Red XIII:

Mmm!? Isn't that Barret?

Yuffie:

Hey? Isn't that guy, Barret?

Cloud:

Barret...

Cloud:

Did he really......

Barret:

Stay back! This's something I gotta deal with.

Barret:

Jes' leave me alone...

Cait Sith:

Whew! That's one of your friends? He sure looks dangerous...

Depending on your companion

Aeris:

Cloud, what should we do? Barret's not his normal self.

Tifa:

...Barret......

Red XIII:

Barret...

Yuffie:

Hey, Cloud! Just leave him alone.

I mean, he told us to, didn't he? Then that's that, right?

Barret:

......

Try to go out into the desert

Cloud:

We should find Barret before we go out into the desert.

Talk to the guy near the fence

Wo-ho! Welcome to Corel Prison.

Talk to the guy near the fence again

Hold---it. If you wanna pass, Then you're gonna need the boss's permission.

Check dead body

Cloud:

This one's been shot too...

More optional dialogue is available in Corel Prison. You can remove Cait Sith's equipment and materia if you're not planning to use him. Go down one screen, into the middle house.

*** JAILIN2: Mayor's Old House ***

Barret:

Didn't I tell you not to come here!?

Cait Sith:

Ju......just hold on for a second! We just want to talk! You'll understand if you just hear us out!

Barret:

Didn't want none of ya to get involved...

Aeris:

Hey that's Cloud's line! '...It's too dangerous, I can't let you get involved...' blah, blah, blah...

Tifa:

Yeah. We're already involved in this.

If Aeris is in the party

Tifa:

We saw you and hurried here. So come on Barret, just tell us what's going on.

If Aeris is not in the party

Aeris:

We saw you and hurried here. Barret, just tell us what's going on.

Barret:

You guys...

Red XIII:

I heard that the murders at the Battle Arena were done by a man with a gun-arm. ...Was that you?

Barret:

There's another... another man that got a gun grafted inta one of his arms. It was four years ago...

*** MTCRL_3: Mt. Corel ***

I remember... I was on my way home from visiting a Mako Reactor being built.

Barret! Dyne! Come quick! The village's being attacked! It's Shinra soldiers!

Barret:

What!!!?

*** COREL1 ***

Barret:

What the hell happened?......

Dyne:

Hey, Barret! It's not over yet!

Everyone's waiting! Let's go back to the village!

Dyne:

What's done is done......

*** MTCRL_3: Mt. Corel ***

Barret! Dyne! Protect the village...!

Barret:

Hmp!! Old man!!

Dyne:

C'mon, Barret! We gotta hurry!

Barret:

Krggh!!

Dyne:

Barret!! You stay here!!

Scarlet:

Kyaa haa, ha!!

You can shoot all day and never hit them with aim like that.

Barret:

Shu' up!!

Scarlet:

Haa, ha, ha!! Stop playing around and cover me!!

Dyne:

Watch out!!

Scarlet:

Haa, ha, ha!!! Looks like one hit you!!

Barret:

Dyne!! Hang on!!

Lissen to me!! You're comin' back to the village, hear!!?

Dyne:

Yeah... I ain't lettin' go...

You're comin' back... Everyone's waitin' for ya...

Eleanor... and Marlene... They all waitin' on us...

Barret:

Dyyyyyyne!

*** JAILIN2: Mayor's Old House ***

Barret:

From then on, I couldn't use my right arm no more.

Barret:

...I was depressed for a while.

Barret:

But then I threw away my artificial arm and got this gun grafted in.

Barret:

Got a new right arm to get revenge on the Shinra, who took everything away...

I say I wanna save the Planet an' all, but all I really want is revenge. To satisfy myself.

Barret:

Back then, I heard the doc say there was another man who got the same operation as me.

But, his was the left arm.

Cloud:

......

Aeris:

But...Dyne's injury was the same as yours, right?

Tifa:

Yeah, that's right. He was deceived by the Shinra too.

He'll probably join us to fight against the Shinra.

Barret:

...wouldn't bet on it. I gotta 'pologize to Dyne before I can rest in peace.

Barret:

An' that's why, I gotta go alone.

Cloud:

Do whatever you want... Is that what you want to hear?

Well, I can't let you do it. Because, if you die on me, I'm gonna have nightmares.

Aeris:

Barret, this isn't the end.

Tifa:

Weren't you going to save the Planet?

Barret:

Shit! Tifa, you oughtta know by now.

Tifa:

...That's all right. I'm not so different from you.

Aeris:

That's easier to understand. It's you, Barret.

Cloud:

So there it is, Barret. So I guess it'll be Barret, me, and......

Cloud:

Barret!

Cloud:

Barret!!

Barret!

Form a party with the person you want to date, or Red XIII / Cait Sith if you want to date Barret. Don't choose Aeris unless you really want to date her!

Talk to remaining members to reform party. This will not affect the dating scene.

Aeris:

I wonder if Dyne will join us?

Tifa:

Be careful.

Red XIII:

Hmm? Shall I go with you?

Yuffie:

You sure are all acting pretty heroic, considerin' we're not makin' any money on this...

Cait Sith:

Fortune's good. Everything is perfect!

Go up two screens to the edge of the desert. You can learn Laser and steal Platinum Bangle from Death Claw, and learn Matra Magic from Bullmotor. Prepare Barret for solo battle. When ready, exit the screen from the right side.

Dyne

*** DYNE ***

Barret:

...Dyne ...Is that you?

Dyne:

Now that's a voice I haven't heard in years...

Dyne:

A voice I'll never forget...

Barret:

I always hoped I'd be able to see you again someday...

I knew you were alive somewhere... we had the same operation.

Barret:

Listen to me Dyne. I want to...

Dyne:

What's that?......I hear her voice.

Barret:

......?

Dyne:

I hear her voice, Eleanor's voice. Begging me... not to hate your rotten guts.

Dyne:

That's why I didn't hunt you down...

Barret:

...I know I was stupid. I'm not asking you to forgive me.

Barret:

But...What're you doin' in a place like this?

Why ya wanna kill those that ain't even involved? Why?

Dyne:

...Why!? The hell do you care for!?

Dyne:

Are the people killed going to understand 'why'? Are the people of Corel going to understand just hearing Shinra's excuses?

Dyne:

I don't CARE what the reason is!

Dyne:

All they give us are artillery and stupid excuses... What's left is a world of despair and emptiness...

Barret:

.......

Dyne:

You still want to hear 'why'? ...All right, I'll tell you.

Dyne:

'Cause I want to destroy everything.

Dyne:

The people of this city.

Dyne:

This city itself.

Dyne:

The whole world!

Dyne:

I got nothing left in this world. Corel, Eleanor...... Marlene......

Barret:

Dyne,Marlene...... Marlene's still alive.

Dyne:

......?

Barret:

I went back into town. I thought she was gone for sure.

Barret:

That is why I wanted to be by her side till the end.

Barret:

That's when I found her... ...found Marlene.

Dyne:

...

Barret:

She's in Midgar. Let's go see her together, all right?

Dyne:

So......she's still alive...

Dyne:

All right, Barret. I guess that means you and I gotta fight.

Barret:

What!?

Dyne:

Eleanor's alone all by herself. I've got to take Marlene to her.

Barret:

Dyne...are you insane!?

Dyne:

Marlene wants to see her Mom, don't she?

Barret:

Stop, Dyne! I can't die yet!

Dyne:

Oh yeah? Well my life's been over ever since then.

Barret:

Stop it! I don't wanna fight you!

Cloud:

Barret!

Barret:

Cloud, you stay the hell out of it! This is MY problem!!

Boss immune against gravity but susceptible to poisoning. Win Silver Armlet.

Battle: Dyne

At the end of the battle

Dyne "Urgh!"

Dyne:

Back!!

Dyne:

...it wasn't just my arm...... back then......

I lost something irreplaceable. I don't know where I went wrong...

Barret:

Dyne...I don't know either, man.

Barret:

Is this the only way... we can resolve this?

Dyne:

I told you... I... I want to destroy everything...

Dyne:

Everything... This crazy world... Even me...

Barret:

An' what 'bout Marlene? What's gonna happen to her!?

Dyne:

...Think about it...Barret... How old was Marlene back then...?

Dyne:

Even if I did go to her now... she wouldn't even know me...

Dyne:

And what's more...Barret...

Dyne:

These hands are a little too stained to carry Marlene anymore...

Barret:

......

Dyne:

Barret...

Dyne:

Give that pendant to Marlene... It was...Eleanor's... my wife's...memento...

Barret:

All right...

Dyne:

...wow...Marlene's... already......4......

Dyne:

Barret... Don't ......make... ......Don't ever make Marlene......cry...

Barret:

Dyne...?

Barret:

Dyne!

Barret:

Dy------ne!!

Barret:

...Dyne. Me an' you were the same...

Barret:

My hands ain't any cleaner...... I shouldn't be able to carry...Marlene either...

Barret:

Uuuurrrrrrgh!!!

Dyne

Dyne:

...Barret...

Barret:

Dyne!!

*** JAILIN4: Container ***

Mr.Coates:

You want somethin'?

Barret:

I want to go up.

Mr.Coates:

Like I told you before, you gotta get the Boss' permission, then win the Chocobo......

Barret:

Dyne's got his reasons an' can't speak.

Barret:

So, I got this, instead.

Mr.Coates:

Yeah, bull--!!

Barret:

I want to go up.

Mr.Coates:

R, right.

Mr.Coates:

Did you kill Dyne?

Mr.Coates:

You must've. Or you'd never be holding that thing.

...So Dyne's dead... Maybe now, the place'll calm down a little.

Mr.Coates:

Dyne didn't care who anyone was......

Barret:

The hell do YOU know!!

Mr.Coates:

R...ri......right! I mean, no, I DON'T know anything. S, s...sorry.

Cloud:

Then, will you get us outta here?

Mr.Coates:

Huh? Oh man, you guys are mistaken.

Mr.Coates:

I already told you, there's only one way to get outta here.

Mr.Coates:

That's to win the Chocobo Race and that's held up there, in the Gold Saucer.

Mr.Coates:

And, only one racer can go up at a time.

Barret:

Say what!?

Mr.Coates:

Noooo! Really, even if you threaten me!!

A rule's a rule. I can't change it.

If I do, the whole system down here'll get messed up!! An' I can't do that!

Mr.Coates:

Okay, ok, I'll let one go up there. After that, he's gotta deal with Dio.

Barret:

Awright then.

Barret:

Cloud, you go.

Barret:

We'll wait down here.

Hurry up an' win that Chocobo Race, an' get us outta here!

Depending on the second party member

Aeris:

Yes, good luck, Cloud.

Tifa:

Right, Cloud. We'll be waiting and rooting for you.

Red XIII:

You're right. Cloud should do it.

Yuffie:

Well, Cloud go get 'em!

Cait Sith:

Ok Cloud, knock 'em dead!

Mr.Coates:

Have you decided?

Mr.Coates:

All you need now is a manager.

... and register and get a Chocobo...

Hi......I happened to hear your story.

Mr.Coates:

Ester?

Ester:

I'll be your manager.

Mr.Coates:

Well, I have nothing against it, but...

Mr.Coates:

This is Ester. She may look kinda funny...

But there's no better manager in the races...

Ester:

That's so rude...

Ester:

Yeah, well. Nice to meet you, Cloud.

Mr.Coates:

All right then, Cloud.

I'll send you up the elevator. Ester'll fill you in on the details.

*** GLDELEV ***

Ester:

Hmm, so that's what happened. I'll talk to Dio directly. You just concentrate on the race.

Oh yeah, getting back to the other thing, there are many different types of Chocobo jockeys. It's not only for criminals.

Some people compete for the fame, some people compete for the money, some only for glory... And then there're people like you.

Oh yeah, I'll teach you how to ride a Chocobo.

All right

Ester:

Ummm... First use the [Select] button to choose either AUTO or MANUAL.

In other words, either you control the Chocobo or let it run on its own.

But it's pretty hard to make the Chocobo run the way you want it to. If the Chocobo doesn't like you, it won't listen.

You can't really help on this one.

But, most of the Chocobo's that I'll provide you with are mellow and you should be able to handle them.

When you're riding, use the [Square] Button to Speed Up and the [X] Button to Slow Down.

But, if you go faster than the Chocobo can handle, it'll lose its stamina really fast.

And use the Directional button to move the Chocobo left and right, use the [O] Button to get a boost of speed.

Of course your stamina runs out faster though.

There are some bad tempered Chocobos that can't pace themselves and they'll lose their stamina pretty fast.

For these kinds of Chocobos, you should set the controls on Manual and slow it down.

Finally, some advice for the restless, once the first and second Chocobo cross the goal line,

Push the [Start] button to end the race.

Not interested

Race for Freedom

*** CRCIN_2: Waiting Room ***

Man:

You new?

Ester:

Hi, Joe.

Joe:

Hey,Ester you're looking pretty as usual.

Ester:

Thanks.

Ester:

Let me introduce you, Cloud.

This is Joe, one of the top Chocobo Jockeys.

Joe:

Nice to meet you, Cloud.

Joe:

If you're with Ester, then...

Ester:

Right! He's an up and coming jockey.

He's only been down here for a day and already he made it up here!!

What!?

Joe:

Oh, I see...

Joe:

So what did you do down there?

Sorry...you're not supposed to ask about the past here...

Joe:

Pretty interesting... I have a feeling that we'll meet again.

Joe:

Then, until we meet again, Cloud.

Ester:

I'm going to check on the Chocobo. You just wait here for a while.

Ramuh materia: corner of room

Talk to Ester before she walks out

Ester:

I'll be right back.

Talk to bottom left jockey

Don't get cocky. Skills don't matter once you get in the race...

Talk to top right jockey

I got nothing to say.

Talk to other jockeys

......

Joe:

Hmm.

1 2 3 4

The race will start in a few moments. Will the jockeys for the next race, please proceed to the paddock.

I repeat...

Ester:

Cloud

Talk to Ester

Ester:

Thanks for waiting. I registered you in the next race.

Ester:

This is a Chocobo I prepared myself. He won't lose easily.

Ester:

Oh yeah... You know how to ride one?

Uh, how was it again?

Ester:

Let's see First use the [Select] button to choose either AUTO or MANUAL.

In other words, either you control the Chocobo or let it run on its own.

But it's pretty hard to make the Chocobo run the way you want it to. If the Chocobo doesn't like you, it won't listen.

For these kinds of Chocobos, you should set the controls on Manual and slow it down.

Yeah, I got it

Ester:

Then, good luck.

Chocobo racing minigame

If you lost the race

Ester:

Too bad.

If you finished in second place

Ester:

You were so close.

If you finished third

Ester:

I was expecting a little more from you.

If you finished in 4th place or worse

Ester:

You had a tough situation there.

If this is the first or second loss

Ester:

Let me find a better Chocobo for you. Wait here for a while, OK?

If you've lost 3 times

Ester:

If you couldn't win with that last Chocobo...

Ester:

All right, I'll go get the best Chocobo there is!

If you lost 4 times or more

Ester:

You gotta be kidding me!? There aren't any other Chocobos better than the last one!

Ester:

Well, if you really want to win, just push the 'SELECT' and try the 'AUTO' mode.

You have to repeat the race until you win

If you won the race

Ester:

Congratulations!! Now you're home free!

Ester:

Oh yeah, the owner told me to give this letter to you when you won.

Dio:

Boy, if you're reading this letter, then you must've won. And won a victory that I am sure you earned.

I heard about Dyne from Ester. Now that you are victorious, I promise that you and all your friends will get a full pardon, and you all will be set free.

And also, by way of apology, I prepared a little gift for you to use on your journey.

Sorry I couldn't be there to tell you this in person, but I'm a very busy man. Sincerely, Dio

Cloud:

A gift?

Aeris:

Cloud, isn't this great!? The assistant manager just stopped by and dropped off a 'buggy' for you!

Now you can go over 'deserts' and 'rivers' no problem.

OK, Cloud. I'll be waiting outside.

Cloud (Hmm? The letter continues...)

P.S. I just recently met Sephiroth. He must have a lot of fans with boys your age.

Why don't you get his autograph? It seems he's headed toward the South of the river, towards Gongaga.

Cloud:

Sephiroth...

Ester:

I guess this is goodbye.

Yeah. Well, if you ever get your own Race Chocobo, come back again.

I'll take care of your registration and everything. I'll see you again.

*** WORLD ***

How to drive the buggy Press the [OK] button to get on. Press the [CANCEL] button to get off. Buggy's can cross shallow rivers and deserts. You can even enter Costa del Sol and Junon by buggy, by hitching a ride on the 'Cargo Ship'.

You can go back to Gold Saucer and have some fun, and fight another battle at Fort Condor. Sleeping man is now accessible. You can learn Aqualung from Harpy in the desert, Frog Song from Touch Me around Gongaga, Big Guard by manipulating Beachplug on beaches near Costa del Sol, and White Wind by manipulating Zemzelett near Junon. You should be strong enough to learn Beta from Midgar Zolom now. New optional dialogue is available in Junon and Costa del Sol. Drive south across the river and visit Gongaga for some optional scenes and items if you want to, then continue driving to the west. Don't drive past Cosmo Canyon if you don't want to miss any Fort Condor battles.

If you try to drive buggy past Cosmo...

!?

Cloud:

Oh man...a breakdown? Now?
