Outro speech[edit]

Location: sound/gman

Filename(s) Quote
gman_suit Gordon Freeman in the flesh. Or rather, in the hazard suit. I took the liberty of relieving you of your weapons; most of them were government property. As for the suit, I think you’ve earned it.
gman_nasty The borderworld, Xen, is in our control for the time being, thanks to you. Quite a nasty piece of work you managed over there. I am impressed.
gman_potential That’s why I’m here, Mr. Freeman. I have recommended your services to my employers, and they have authorized me to offer you a job. They agree with me that you have limitless potential.
gman_stepin You’ve proved yourself a decisive man, so I don’t expect you’ll have any trouble deciding what to do. If you’re interested, just step into the portal and I will take that as a yes.
gman_otherwise Otherwise...well...I can offer you a battle you have no chance of winning. Rather an anticlimax, after what you’ve just survived.
gman_choose1 Time to choose.
gman_choose2 It's time to choose.
gman_wise Wisely done, Mr. Freeman. I will see you up ahead.
gman_nowork Well, it looks like we won't be working together. (If the player refuses G-Man's offer.)
gman_noreg No regrets, Mr. Freeman. (If the player refuses G-Man's offer.)

gman_noregret Well, it looks like we won't be working together. No regrets, Mr. Freeman, but there are a few survivors of your personal holocaust who would like the chance to meet the man responsible for the total annihilation of their race. (If the player refuses G-Man's offer, longer version.)

Half-Life: Opposing Force[edit]

Outro speech[edit]

Location: sound/gman

Filename(s) Quote
of7a0_gm01 So, Corporal Shephard, we meet at last. Please, don't think that I've been avoiding you, a great many matters require my attention in these... troubled times. I do hope you understand, and now I require a further indulgence on your part. I cannot close my report until every loose end has been tied up. The biggest embarrassment has been Black Mesa facility, but I think that's finally taken care of itself...
of7a0_gm02 Quite so.
of7a0_gm03 But there is still the lingering matter of witnesses. I admit I have a fascination with those who adapt and survive against all odds. They rather remind me of myself. If for no other reason, I have argued to preserve you for a time.
of7a0_gm04 While I believe a civil servant like yourself understands the importance of... discretion, my employers are not quite so trusting, and rather than continually subject you to the irresistible human temptation of telling all, we have decided to...convey you to somewhere where you can do no possible harm, and where no harm can come to you. I'm sure you can imagine there are worse alternatives.

Used in the WC mappack map "hazard".

Filename(s) Quote
haz_gm01a, haz_gm01b, haz_gm02, haz_gm03 Cleverly done, Mr. Freeman, but you're not supposed to be here. As a matter of fact, you're not. Get back where you belong, and forget about all this, until we meet again. (Also under the names "gman_12", and "gman_12a" to "gman_12d". Partially reused in the Half-Life 2: Episode Two Trailer.)
haz_gm01 Cleverly done, Mr. Freeman, but you're not supposed to be here. In fact, you're not. Go back where you belong, and forget all about this, until we meet... (Mostly the same sentence as above, made by another actor.)

Location: sound/vo/gman_misc

Used in the E3 2003 video "G-Man".

Filename(s) Quote
gman_07 We've been rather busy in your absence, Mister Freeman.
gman_10 Pay attention, mister Freeman, I'm only going to say this once.
sino_gman 那麼,看來我們是沒有合作的機會了。 (Mandarin Chinese. In Latin letters "Na me, kan lai wo men shi mei you he zuo de ji hui le.", which roughly translates to "Well, it seems we have no chance of cooperation.", a nod to Half-Life's sentence "Well, it looks like we won't be working together." in Half-Life's outro speech, if the player refuses G-Man's offer.)

Used in the E3 2003 video "Psyche".

Intro speech[edit]

Location: sound/vo/gman_misc

Filename(s) Quote
gman_riseshine Rise and shine, Mr. Freeman. Rise and shine.
gman_02 Not that I wish to imply you have been sleeping on the job. No one is more deserving of a rest. And all the effort in the world would have gone to waste until...well, let's just say your hour has come again.
gman_03 The right man in the wrong place can make all the difference in the world.
gman_04 So, wake up, Mr. Freeman. Wake up and smell the ashes.

Filename(s) Quote
gman_exit01 ...time, Dr. Freeman?
gman_exit02 Is it really that time again?
gman_exit03 It seems as if you only just arrived.
gman_exit04 You've done a great deal in a small timespan.
gman_exit05 You've done so well, in fact, that I've received some interesting offers for your services. Ordinarily, I wouldn't contemplate them. But these are extraordinary times.
gman_exit06 Rather than offer you the illusion of free choice, I will take the liberty of choosing for you...if and when your time comes around again.
gman_exit07 I do apologize for what must seem to you an arbitrary imposition, Dr. Freeman. I trust it will all make sense to you in the course of...well...
gman_exit08 I'm really not at liberty to say.
gman_exit09 In the meantime...
gman_exit10 This is where I get off.

Victory Mine speech[edit]

Location: sound/vo/outland_02/junction

When the G-Man interrupts Alyx's healing performed by the Vortigaunts.

Filename(s) Quote
gman_mono01 to gman_mono04 Doctor Freeman. I realize this moment may not be the most convenient for a heart-to-heart, but I had to wait until your friends were otherwise occupied. Hm.
gman_mono05 to gman_mono06 There was a time they cared nothing for Miss Vance... When their only experience of humanity was a crowbar coming at them down a steel corridor.
gman_mono08 to gman_mono10 When I plucked her from Black Mesa, I acted in the face of objections that she was a mere child and of no practical use to anyone. I have learned to ignore such naysayers when quelling them was out of the question. [breathing]
gman_mono11 to gman_mono13 Still, I am not one to squander my investments... and I remain confident she was worth far more than the initial... appraisal.
gman_mono14 to gman_mono17 That's why I must now extract from you some small repayment owed for your own survival.
gman_mono22; gman_mono24 See her safely to White Forest, Doctor Freeman. [breathing]
gman_mono25 to gman_mono27 I wish I could do more than keep an eye on you, but I have agreed to abide by certain... restrictions.
gman_mono28 to gman_mono33 Mmm. Well... Now... Listen carefully, my dear. When you see your father relay these words:
gman_mono34 Prepare for unforeseen consequences.

Unused quotes[edit]

Text only, to be said during the Victory Mine speech.

Filename(s) Quote
gman_mono07 It seems they've grown to share my estimation of her worth.
gman_mono18 to gman_mono21 I'm not asking for anything that goes against your nature. Merely the favor of her continued protection, while she acts as medium for a message of some importance.
gman_mono23 She may require more care than was previously the case.
