Why do we need a- why do, what do you mean a passport? You mean like a company ID? (Laughing) I don't, I don't have a passport! I have my, I have my Black Mesa I.D. He's clenching, I, dude- Ok? Listen I'm not, (Laughing) I'm not any danger to him, alright? I'm in the, I'm in the HEV suit- I'm in the fucking company suit, I'm in my uniform. (The guard sings a note) (Wayne laughs) What was that? What the fuck was- What was that? You blow balls in his mouth with your sw- ok.

Uh, so I gotta go to the test chamber. Am I being held up here? Like am I not allowed to go do my job? I don't have- Look at my chest! Look at me. I'm suited, like literally every scientist in the fucking building is rushing me into the room. I, I'm going to go. Are, So you're coming with- you're coming with me? That- We'll, we'll find it ok? There'll be a passport somewhere around here. I'm sure we can find something to make you happy, and make him happy. Kinda scared of him. (The guard sings the same note) (Wayne chuckles) I gotta go put on my HEV suit, even though I'm already in it.

Hello. Tommy? Ok. Where, what department are you in? Where are you supposed to be right now? You headed to the break room? Th- The billboards in the break room? Are they putting ads- The billboards? I can't read it either dude. Listen, I'm gonna, I'll- you gonna stay here? Okay. We'll see, I'll catch you later Tommy Apparently he drinks soda for lunch. Okay what a, what a freak. What the fuck was that? What the hell was that? Hey, Mr. Coomer. How are you doing today? Another day another dollar, that's what we always say here at Black Mesa. I- alright. I'll be- I gotta head to the test chamber I got a big day today, right? You know, you know, crystals? Chamber? Yeah.

Yeah, all that, all that. So you know where we're going? You know you should probably suited up for this. Like, this is gonna be like radiation and shit. Are you good? All right, so down the elevator. The uh, I think we're heading like three levels down, so… I was um, how long have you worked here- Where do we need to go? If not down the elevator? I- I've never, I've worked here for many years! I have never had to bring my passport to work.

I've never had a guard ask me for my passport. I'm a little bit suspicious of you! I don't know why I'm shaking! I don't know why I'm shaking I think you're pushing me in the- (Laughing) I'm not nervous! I'm perfectly ok! I am perfectly healthy, and smart. I need you to move out of the way, so that we can go to the test chamber! Listen. I'm gonna press the button. You can, Ok! I, I've accepted that! I've come to terms with that! I've come to terms of the fact that you've just, you're gonna babysit me today. I have, uh, ghsdhgfd… I have as much ID as I'm ever going to have! Listen, man, I'm not good at squeezing past people. I'm a big guy. I can't get past you when you stand right there.

(Wayne Laughs) (Laughing) Who's afraid of me? Who is afraid of me? Is that why the scientists wouldn't talk to me? Okay well listen! Listen! We will figure this all out! We are running- What? What did you say? You ever, you ever ride in- I don't think that's… I mean, that is true. I don't think that's very safe, for our bodies. I think you should probably save your legs the trouble and just wait five seconds? Are you trying to get me killed- damn.

Damn, you wait for nobody, huh? (Wayne laughs) You were saying people- they don't seem scared of me. They're not even looking at me, they're ignoring me. Why, why would they be- what reason would they have to be afraid? I… augh! (Wayne panting) Gordon sprint! Let me in, let me in we're running late. Thank you. See? These guys aren't asking for my ID. You have some fucked up vendetta against me and my fuckin' passport! They were no problem! Why don't they, c- (stuttering) You don't think they care about their job, you're just gonna say that in front of them?! Fruit Loops?! Fruit Loops…

I don't- (Confused noises) (Wayne exhales) Yeah, that's what I should be saying, huh? Yeah you, okay yeah you stay over there! (Wayne chuckles) Can we open this up? Thank you.

Okay, you can't go any farther. This is the fucking test chamber. This is where, you go, you die if you go in here. I don't, you get it? You get it? I… you know what man, I guess you're right. There's no g- There's no g-

The, we gotta push the- we gotta push the test sample into the laser, right? Okay.

Okay, so a guard! A guard, there was a guard insisting that I had my passport. Do you have your passport? I don't have my passport. I don't have my passport. This is, as far as I know. This is- this is company protocol as of today. It doesn't, it doesn't, it does not matter but listen. A guard followed me- Hey! Whatever the fuck happened in there, he jumped in there, another guy jumped in there. Three subjects, one sample. Boom. That's all- that's all that I know that happened. DID I NOT TELL YOU TO GET TO FUCK OUT OF THE TEST CHAMBER?! Are you guys okay?! Jesus, you wouldn't talk to me before. Tommy. Tommy! We need to make sense- (Wayne yells) Augh, Jesus!
