mag_transmit_nowaste01 There is no time to waste.
mag_transmit_nowaste02 We'll need to step up the launch schedule.

mag_aband_popular01 Attention, personnel.
mag_aband_popular02 This is Dr. Magnusson!

Filename(s) Quote Play
mag_tutor_darelaunch01 Freeman, Striders are coming.
mag_tutor_darelaunch02 A single one of those damn things could shoot down our rocket.
mag_tutor_darelaunch03 We don't dare launch until all Striders are destroyed.
mag_tutor_brawn01 Now, you've proved yourself capable, and the staff seem to respect you. Therefore, I'm putting defense of White Forest, and this ingenious new weapon of mine, in your hands.
mag_tutor_magdevice01 and mag_tutor_magdevice02 We call it the Magnusson Device. Not my chosen label you understand, but it seemed to please the personnel.
mag_tutor_looklively Now look lively in there. Warm up the delivery port.
mag_tutor_rdu01 Now, what it is, is a sort of a sticky-bomb, although cleverer than that makes it sound.
mag_tutor_rdu02 From your point of view, you merely pitch the device at the Strider's hull, then blow it up.
mag_tutor_rdu03 I've struggled with a mechanism for launching the device, but... well, your Zero Point Energy Field Manipulator clears up that little problem.
mag_tutor_getinpractice Follow me and we'll let you get in some practice while we still have time.

In the training area:

Filename(s) Quote Play
mag_tutor_outinfield Now, out in the field, we'll supply you with all the Magnusson Devices you need through delivery ports like this one.

mag_tutor_wanttousegravgun Now you'll want to use your Gravity Gun to throw it.

If Gordon doesn't shoot the device:

Filename(s) Quote Play
mag_tutor_firearm Good. Now take out the firearm of your choice and shoot the device.

When Gordon detonates the Strider Buster:

Filename(s) Quote Play
mag_tutor_nottoohard01 There you go.
mag_tutor_nottoohard02 Not too difficult at this range, is it? Gets a bit harder when it's moving about and firing at you, of course.
mag_tutor_moveon Now, let's move on to a more challenging task.
mag_tutor_fartarget Uriah, send the target to the far end of the rails.

After the dead Strider is moved:

Filename(s) Quote Play

When Gordon misses the Strider:

Filename(s) Quote Play
mag_tutor_bitmore A bit more challenging at this range, isn't it.
mag_tutor_fragile As you can see, the Magnussons are fragile. They will disintegrate immediately if they miss their target.

mag_tutor_backtorocket Now, I must get back to my rocket, Freeman.
mag_tutor_squander I'm relying on you not to squander my trust... or my Magnussons!
mag_tutor_debacle Oh, and Freeman! If you pull this off, I might just forgive you for that debacle at Black Mesa. You know the one I mean – involving a certain microwave casserole.

When Gordon and Alyx arrive at the upper control room:

Filename(s) Quote Play
mag_launch_tolerance01 Well... that's within tolerance, certainly not worth scuttling the ...
mag_launch_forgetmd01 Ah, let's not forget that with the Magnusson device, those striders practically destroy themselves.
mag_launch_startauto02 I suggest we adjourn this meeting of the mutual admiration society until after we have launched our rocket.
mag_launch_readytostartauto I believe we're ready to start the autosequence.

If Gordon refuses to push the button:

mag_launch_premature01 Now... now, it's still too early to celebrate.
mag_launch_premature02 We need to reach altitude and transmit the signal.
mag_launch_cutclose We couldn't have cut it any closer if that was our intention.

To Alyx, while she is exiting the room along with Eli and Gordon:
