Story/Night 9-2 (Part2)/Script
[The battle is over.]
M14: The Griffin signals we just discovered are up ahead, but there’s a lot of them…
Don’t tell me… they’re helpers?
M1928A1: I didn’t ask Bossu for anything like that.
Stay put, I’ll go over to check it out—
Thompson-senpai — we finally found you!
M1928A1: Ah? T65...?
You guys… what are you doing here?
Garand: Thompson-nee… it’s like this...
M1928A1: It’s not safe here. We’ll talk as we fall back to a safehouse.
M14: You’re filming… a fake M16-san?
M14 is kind of confused… we haven’t finished the rescue, have we?
M1928A1: No, I get it.
At the very least, I understand what AK47 was babbling about right until she was loaded onto the chopper.
An emergency backup plan, huh… it does sound like something Garand would come up with.
Garand: We had a lot of, uh… surprises tonight...
T77: Yeah, even making it here was a surprise in itself.
M1928A1: But I didn’t expect that you’d choose to pass straight through such a dangerous area.
Is this really that important to you?
Yes, this is something we have to do, no matter what.
But why are you still here, Thompson-senpai… didn’t AK47-senpai and the others evacuate already?
M1928A1: Everyone has things they need to do no matter what. It’s just that simple.
M14: Garand-nee… we really can’t help you…
For the entire night at the very least, Leader will have to—
M1928A1: I can finish it by tonight, and I can dress myself up to look like M16.
What exactly do you need me to do?
M14: Huh? But—
M1928A1: If we were in the base right now, I might have refused their request.
But since they’re willing to take such a huge risk and not give up, then we’ve got no reason not to help out. It’s just the way things are done.
M14: But Leader, what happens if you’re distracted with something else and a signal which matches the identifying characteristics shows up outside?
M1928A1: We’ll do what we have to do.
But frankly speaking, we’re waiting right now, so there’s no clash.
Garand, will your filming make a lot of noise?
Garand: No, we just need to record a short and simple dialogue...
M1928A1: Deal. Let’s start right away.
But we’ll stop the moment anything funny happens outside, capiche?
Garand: Al-alright, no problem!
T65: Uuuuuu Thompson-senpaiiiii—
M3: Ssssh! Quiet down, T65-san!
T77: I”m really surprised…
It’s impressive how this plan managed to hang together as long as it did...
M1928A1: Hmm… I’ve seen M9 pull a lot of fancy stunts in this department...
But this close up, the art of makeup really is mysterious.
Actually M3: Yeah… it’s like magic...
Even I can look exactly like M4-san...
M14: That’s amazing — !
Can’t you just keep changing faces with this?
T77: As if a doll would need to go to so much trouble to change their face...
T65: You’re up next, Thompson-senpai!
Hurry up, Garand-senpai!
Garand: I’m cleaning the tools and materials we need, I’ll be done soon...
M1928A1: No need to rush, I won’t run out on you.
Haahhh… to think that the next time I’d see M16 would be in the mirror.
Garand: Let’s see, I think we’ve got almost everything together.
T65-san, do you still have that box I asked you to bring along before we set out?
Oh, that one, of course it’s...
Actually M3: T65-san, why aren’t you moving any more?
T77: Oh no...
T65: THat’s strange, where’s that box gone to...
Wait a minute, I clearly put it into this pocket!
Actually M3: Don’t tell me you dropped it during the battle just now...
T65: I didn’t drop it!
I’ll find it, I just don’t know which pocket it’s in… where is it… where is it...
M1928A1: What’s in that box?
Garand: A small part.
However, it’s used to assemble M16-san’s gun and her weapon case.
Did you lose it...
T65: I didn’t lose it!
I’ll definitely find it! Maybe I dropped it when we entered...
T77: Doesn’t that mean you lost it?
T65: You talk too much, T77, shut up!
Garand: Calm down, T65-san.
It’s… it’s no big deal if you lost the box.
There’s no need to panic.
Garand-nee… please tell me you have a backup plan...
Of course I do, so there’s no need to worry.
M1928A1: So what should we do now?
Garand: I… let me think...
T65: It’s all my fault… I didn’t properly secure that box...
T77: Well, things being what they are now, you might as well pick a spot and dig a hole, senpai. Who knows, you might have buried something essential there in the past.
T65: Do you think you’re talking about the nearby hills!?
Who would bury excess parts in a place like this?
T77: It can’t be helped, then. You’ll just have to find some styrofoam and make something up with some wooden boards.
It hurts a little to lose T91, but it should be enough to mock something up.
T65: How can we make a mockup when we don’t even have any black paint!?
T65: Uwaaahhhh, I can’t find it… I really can’t find it...
What should we do… it’s not like we can go over and loot some SF parts, right...
Yes, that’s it!
Garand: Those parts are interchangeable. Even SF Manufacturing uses them.
With all those SF remains outside, I’m sure we’ll be able to find something we can use.
Which means, you’ll have to go outside?
Garand: It won’t take long, we’re just looking for a few small things.
T65: No, I’ll go!
Garand-nee, you stay here and handle the rest of the things needed for the filming.
Garand: But the part specs...
T65: Just tell me!
I lost it, so let me find it! I can’t cause you extra trouble, Garand-nee!
Garand: It’s not a matter of giving trouble—
M1928A1: Should you be arguing at a time like this?
Garand, is there anything else you need to do besides find that part?
Garand: No… I need to prepare quite a number of programs...
M1928A1: So what are you fighting for? Tell T65 the specs you need.
T77, M3, you two go with her in case something unexpected crops up. Be quick about it.
Actually M3: ...Huh?
T77: … Let’s go, senpai.
T65: We’re just stripping some parts, it won’t be any trouble!
We’ll be right back!
M1928A1: Garand, I have something to tell you.
