Part 23: [continued]

999 OST: [Trepidation]

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

Tenmyouji and I went into the lounge, but Quark didn't follow us.

We turned around and started calling for him, but...

When he didn't respond, we ran back the way we'd come.


We thought maybe he just hadn't seen us go into the lounge...

So we checked the crew quarters and the infirmary.

But... he wasn't there either.

If we can't find him in any of the floor A rooms, we'll move to floor B.


You guys go on ahead.

Right, you do that.

I checked both rooms.

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

He's not in the other two either.
There's no one here.

Tenmyouji and K are in the lounge, and Dio and Luna should be checking the infirmary...

Right. Okay, let's leave that to them and head to floor B.

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

Yeah. So?

What was on the other side of that door?

You want to see it?

Yeah. Maybe Quark went there...

Fine. Follow me.

The pantry.


That drawer over there is stuffed with processed food.
Wasn't half bad, actually.

You ate it?



Oh, and I ate the chef's pasta too.

That's a lot of food!

Can't help it. I'm a growing girl.

How old are you?

Whoa whoa whoa.
Just... just stop.
I don't even know where to start here.

Two. "You think"?
You should be old enough to know how old you are.

I can't believe you're only two years younger than me...

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

You must've done a lot of drugs to look like that at twenty-two.

Oh gimmie a break you little punk!

I'm an adult, you dried up asshole!

So this place has enough food to keep people alive for a few years, huh?
Looks like this stuff isn't going to expire anytime soon...

Yeah, the "use by" date is about a hundred years from now...

How about water?

There's a tank over there.

Is it... safe?

Well, since Dio isn't rolling around on the floor in agonizing pain, I'm going to go ahead and assume it's okay.

You made him drink it to make sure it was safe?

I guess you could say that.

So you ate all the food without a second thought, but the water struck you as possibly dangerous?

No. I was careful with the food too. Dio had some of it first, and it seemed fine so I--


I ate something else!
Twice-cooked pork!

Oh for God's sake!
Why the hell are you shouting about that?

Wait a minute... Twice-cooked pork?

What is it?

Well, that just... reminded me of something.

Reminded you of what?

This might seem hard to believe at--

Oh come on, at least let me tell you first!

All right...

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

So the G-OLM guy was turned off just when he was about to tell you something...


So the last thing he said was, "See, right in the middle of--"?
Right in the middle...
"Middle" could be from "Middle Kingdom", which is another name for China...

Well, this was utterly pointless.

Please, explain.

Well, maybe he was trying to say that this game is like the Chinese Room.
In other words--

Music fades out

There you are! I've been looking all over for you!

What's going on?

Something bad! Something really bad!

Well come on, spill it.

Alice... Alice is...
Just come with me! She's in the crew quarters!
