Bishop: Just as I thought, you are the only one who got through the gate.
Ash: Is this "Special A"?
Bishop: We call it "Class Real". Building it has taken huge amounts of very sophisticated data. In many ways, it's still very experimental.
Ash: In many ways?
Bishop: There's just one thing you have to do to complete it. That's finishing off the Unreturned. Your equipment and skill parameters are returned to default. All you have is a pistol and one clip of ammunition. There are neutral characters operating under free will. Hurt one of them and your game is over. There's no time limit. The only exit from the game is completion. If you get back safely, you can be one of us. Any questions?
Ash: Why did you send me here?
Bishop: Surely the answer to that lies within you. If there's no questions, we'll begin.
Ash: Let me ask you something. Are you accessing from a terminal somewhere or are you part of the system itself?
Game Master: What does it matter? You couldn't confirm it anyway.
Murphy: Have you ever been shot? Do you want to feel real pain in a real body?
Ash: Does it have to be this way?
Murphy: When one of us dies and that body doesn't vanish, the other one will know.
Murphy: [referring to Class Real] Ash, don't let appearance confuse you. This is the world where you belong.
Ash: You're not ready yet for class A, you still have a lot of work to do in class C and B.
Bishop: what do you think is the best, a game you think you can finish, but never do, or a game that seems impossible to win, but isn't?
Ash: Is this what you wanted? For this you abandoned us all? To spend the rest of your life as a hollow shell in a hospital bed, staring at nothing?
Murphy: How can you be so sure? Do I look like a hollow shell? Do I? Reality is only what we tell ourselves it is! That's all! I choose this one. I prefer this reality.
