: Rise and shine, Mister Freeman. Rise and... shine. Not that I... wish to imply you have been sleeping on the job. No one is more deserving of a rest, and all the effort in the world would have gone to waste until... well, let's just say your hour has... come again. G-Man
: The right man in the wrong place can make all the difference in the world. So, wake up, Mister Freeman. Wake up and... *smell the ashes*...
[G-Man has just frozen time at the end of the game, finishes Alyx's phrase cut off in the process
: Time, Dr. Freeman? Is it really that time again? It seems as if you only just arrived. You've done a great deal in a small time span. You've done so well, in fact, that I've received some interesting offers for your services.
[G-Man picks something off the frozen body of Alyx
: Ordinarily, I wouldn't contemplate them... but these *are* extraordinary times.
[the world around Gordon fades away, into the familiar "Star Tram" from Half-Life 1
: Rather than offer you the illusion of free choice, I will take the liberty of choosing for you... if and when your time comes round again. I do apologize for what must seem to you an arbitrary imposition, Dr. Freeman. I trust it will all make sense to you in the course of... well... I'm really not at liberty to say. In the meantime... this is where I get off.
[G-Man walks away from Gordon, adjusts his tie, and walks into a white opening
[G-Man finally speaks to Gordon
: Gordon Freeman, in the flesh - or, rather, in the hazard suit. I took the liberty of relieving you of your weapons. Most of them were government property. As for the suit, I think you've earned it. The borderworld, Xen, is in our control, for the time being... thanks to you. Quite a nasty piece of work you managed over there; I am impressed. That's why I'm here, Mr. Freeman. I have recommended your services to my... employers, and they have authorized me to offer you a job. They agree with me that you have limitless potential. You've proved yourself a decisive man so I don't expect you'll have any trouble deciding what to do. If you're interested, just step into the portal and I will take that as a yes. Otherwise, well, I can offer you a battle you have no chance of winning... rather an anticlimax after what you've just survived. Time to choose...
: [after accepting the G-Man's offer
] Wisely done, Mr. Freeman. I will see you up ahead.
: We'll see... about *that*.
[G-Man's only line in the game
] We'll see about that.
[Post-game 'conversation' with the G-Man, takes place in helicopter, flying through a desert canyon
: So, Corporal Shephard, we meet at last! Please, don't think that I've been avoiding you, a great many matters require my attention in these troubled times. I *do* hope you understand. Now, I require a further indulgence on your part. I cannot close my report until every loose end has been tied up. The biggest embarrassment has been Black Mesa facility... but I think that's finally taking care of itself.
[Bright flash of light, implying that the bomb you disabled has in fact gone off
: Quite so.
[Another flash of light. Now, the helicopter is flying through Xen
: But there is still the lingering matter of *witnesses*. I admit, I have a fascination with those who adopt and survive against all odds... they rather remind me of myself. If for no other reason, I have argued to..."preserve" you, for a time.
[Another flash of light. Now, the helicopter is flying through a pitch-black expanse with few tiny lights passing by
: While I believe a civil servant, like yourself, understands the importance of discretion, my employers are not quite so trusting. And rather than continually subjective to the *irresistible* human temptation of "Telling All", we have decided to convey you somewhere you can do no possible harm... and where no harm can come to you. I'm sure you can imagine there are worse alternatives...
[Fade to Black
] Ending Titles
: Subject: Shephard. Status: Detained. Further Evaluation Pending.
: Doctor Freeemaaan. I realize this moment may not be the most convenient for a 'heart-to-heart', but I had to wait until your... 'friends' were otherwise occupied. Hm. G-Man
: There was a time they cared nothing for Miss Vance... When their only experience of humanity was a crowbar coming at them down a steel corridor. When I plucked her from Black Mesa, I acted in the face of objections that she was a mere child and of no practical use to anyone. I have learned to ignore such naysayers when... quelling them... was out of the question. G-Man
: Still, I am not one to squander my investments... and I remain confident she was worth far more than the initial... appraisal. That's why I must now extract from you some small repayment owed for your own survival. See her safely to White Forest, Doctor Freeman. I wish I could do more than keep an eye on you, but I have agreed to abide by certain... restrictions. Mmm. G-Man
: [to Alyx
] Well... now... listen carefully, my dear. When you see your father relay these words: Prepare for unforeseen consequences.
