ECHO Recorders[]

Personal Item: Thoughts and Stuff[]


  • Nisha (commenting): "Hehehe. Good memory."

Halcyon Days[]

ECHO 1: Long time ago, my dad bought me a dog. His way of apologizing for mom's temper. Loved that dog. Took her to school, carried her on my shoulders. Held her close after mom was done yelling and growling and punching. Used to fall asleep with her in my arms.

ECHO 2:  One day, my dog got bit by a frenzycrutch hiding in the tall grass. Eyes went red. Lips went blue. Acted normal otherwise, though. I thought maybe she was immune. Maybe I caught a break.

ECHO 3: That night, mom did her usual thing. She hurled a glass at me. I tried to catch it -- I'd gotten good at catching whatever she tossed -- but it bounced off my hand and fell on the dog. Not hard enough to hurt it, but... its eyes went even redder. Lips even bluer. Foam dripped from its jowls, and it lunged at me. Sunk its teeth into my neck. Over my own screams, I could hear dad whimpering. The dog snarling. And my mom... laughing. After dad patched me up, I grabbed a shovel and bashed the dog's brains out.

Borderlands 2 NPC Quotes[]

  • "Howdy, partner."
  • "A few of you have learned that Handsome Jack is my boyfriend. If you think I'm just a pretty face who got this town as an anniversary gift, you know where to find me."
  • "You Vault hunters think you're different from bandits, but you're not."
  • "Explosives, huh? That ought to be fun."
  • "Nice robbery, I think you deserve my best. Boys, get after 'em!"
  • "Brick always did have a flair for the dramatic; blew my jail sky-high, swore revenge on what Jack and I had done to him, said we had turned him into a bandit the moment we killed his dog. With you, I think it's going to be much simpler: either I die or you do. Nice and clean."
  • "You got me to thank that you're living in a town called Lynchwood. You know what Jack wanted to call this place? New New Haven. I love the guy, but he doesn't exactly have a way with words."
  • "I hear there's a new bandit in town. If you're hearing this, kiddo, don't die right away - I've always wanted to duel a Vault hunter."
