Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward

by Fedule

Part 55: Laboratory

Listen in: [English/Japanese]


Well, one of them's not really significant, I guess...


999 OST: [Riddle and Puzzle]

We didn't even end up using this thing, did we?


I was just wondering what it was.

Well, I'm not sure how I'm supposed to answer that...
Hmm. Look at the side here... There's a name or something.

"Replicator" makes it sound like it makes copies of stuff.

So it's like a copy machine.

Yeah. Probably copies... IG. Whatever that is.

Any ideas?

Who knows?

Ice cream by the gallon?

Of course! This machine must be here so we can just make all the ice cream we want -- are you nuts?!
You're one idiotic girl, you know that?
In other words, an IG!

Oooooh, good one!

There's a helpless child back there in the infirmary who needs our help.



Listen in: [English/Japanese]

That's right.

On to the second issue.

Sigma, you found a journal and some sort of vial in the safe, right?


The vial... could you show it to me again?


I didn't really get a good look at it before.
You guys were in there so close I could barely see it.
Was it really Axelavir?

Yeah, definitely.

As I spoke, I pulled the vial out of my pocket.


Listen in: [English/Japanese]

Heh. You really are an idiot.


Although I guess in this case the G in IG stands for "guy".

What...? I don't--

[Music fades out]

What're you doing?

Dio slipped the vial quickly into his coat.

VLR OST: [Consternation]

Oh don't worry, I'll keep it safe.
I'll even give it back to you later.

No, not later! Give it back now!


Yeah, that's what I said.
If you want this back, in the next AB Game...

"Ally"...? Wait, is that why you took the medicine? To blackmail me?!

That's horrible! You're using Quark's life as leverage!

I'll be happy to give it back if you just do what I say!

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

You make any sudden moves, and I'll smash it.

He patted his pocket gently.

Oh, and one more thing...
Don't tell those other idiots that you found some Axelavir in here.

I hear one word about it and the next thing you hear will be little bits of glass shattering on the floor.


That's not fair...

It's about one thing -- how well you can manipulate people to your advantage. How unfair you can be.



So, what're you going to do?
Ready to promise me you'll pick "ally"?



Fine... I promise.


Oh, I knew you'd say it eventually.
I'm glad you understand how this works.

But don't think about trying anything funny. Break your promise and... well, you know what happens.



VLR OST: [Desperation]

Listen in: [English/Japanese]


I know.
I'll drop to -1, and that means I'll get penalized...

But that means--

Look, it's not like I want to, all right?
If we don't do as he says, then he'll destroy the medicine.
If he does that, then Quark will... Quark will...

So you're going to die to save his life...?


Why would you do that?



Everyone else is probably finished already. I bet they're waiting for us.
