FINAL FANTASY 8 DEMO SCRIPT
TRANSLATED AND TRANSCRIBED by Jon Chang, Hodaka Tsyuchida and Mark Gilson.

This isn't an exact translation but it's dead on intonation(we hope!).
Where straight translations didn't make a lot of sense I improvised
what they were trying to get at.

(after the intro all members standing on the beach)

Squall: What are your orders?
Cypha: We're flanking the enemy forces on this op. Call sign is B Group.
Zell: How many enemies?
Cypha: Uh... Lots! If there aren't many this will just be boring!
Squall: ...Move through the central park? Is that it?
Cypha: Reinforcements are en route so we'll get as much killing as we want!
       ...so much for the element of surprise....
Zell: What are you talking about?
Cypha: I don't know...move out!

(near the burning car)
Cypha: The enemy must be around here.
Squall: So where are they from?
Zell: Are you fucking serious? They have to be from Galvadia! Squall don't
      worry about it. Anyone who attacks us is an enemy(^-^)


(street)
Cypha: Having fun Squall?

(street 2)
Cypha: The central park is right ahead! Are you listening Galvadia soldiers?!
       I'll kill you all myself!!!
Squall: Is he insane?

(central park--has a fountain in the center and the cool dog)
Cypha:Do you have any empathy for our enemies?
	top choice: yes
	bottom choice: no
(i answered no of course hehe)
Cypha: Don't disappoint me. Sweep the area and kill any hostiles you find.
       They could be anywhere

(kill guy in upper right corner)
Squall: We showed no mercy.
Cypha: Certainly looks that way. We're holding up here until their forces
	   move through this area...(to self)waiting is such boring work.

(wind blows, fighting noise in bkg begins)
Squall: Looks like it's starting.
Zell: Yeah this is it.
Cypha: We're gonna take care of these bastards...
Zell: Hey dude take a look at Cypha!
Cypha: (to dog)Keep your nose outta my business! Beat it!
Are you listening Galvadia soldiers?! Why are you fucking with me?
Come on already you cowards!

(B team stands around waiting)
Squall: Doesn't look like they're coming...
	(you must talk to characters to elicit responses from them)

Zell: What the fuck is up with this? It's soooo boring. It's not right sitting
	  around like this...
LeNore: ...
Cypha: ...! .....!!!!! We'll continue to wait here.
	  I can't stand it! Is this a job for a fucking watch dog!

(Galvadia soldiers move through central park and characters hide)
Squall: Enemy sighted...
Zell: Where are they going?
Cypha: Let's follow them!
Zell: Hey, that's against orders!
Cypha: A few minutes ago you were bitching how bored you were...all talk eh?
Zell: Squall?
Squall: I'm gonna follow the commander's orders.
Cypha: What orders?(grabs Squall) Don't you want to kill Galvadians?(Squall 
pushes him off)
Squall: Sure, it's a good opportunity to show you what I'm made of. Thanks to
	    you I've got no fear of those cowards.
Cypha: Thank me later when we've killed them all.
Zell: What's up? You guys are 2 of a kind! This isn't just another battle!
	  It's an important test! If you disobey orders it's blow all of our end 
results!
Cypha: We're leaving you behind! We've got no room for people without guts.
	  (dog barks)What? You want to come? He's better than you Zell!
Zell: You bastard!
Squall: Get a grip Zell. We better hurry. There's more important things to do 
here.
Cypha: The enemy's objective must be the outpost at the top of this mountain.
	   We'll secure the outpost. Let's do it.
Squall: Roger.
Zell: ...ok...

(on brick path)
Soldier of Darva: What the hell happened to us...what could they want in the 
				  Satellite tower?
Soldier of Darva 2: Ever since I was a kid I've been playing in this 
place...even
					then the sat tower was closed...I've been 
careless.
Crawling Soldier: Wah!!! Who are you people?
Squall: We're from GARDEN. SeeD trainees.
Cypha: What's at the top of this mountain?
Crawling Soldier: Galvadian troops occupied the tower. Be careful if you're 
going
				  up there tower was a monster's lair! 
Raaarrrggghhh!!!!!(dragged away)
				  
(After battle)
Squall: So there's monster's here too.
Zell: What the hell is up with that?
Cypha: We have a lot more fun ahead! Come on!
Zell: Did he say fun?
Wounded Soldier: (only if you talk with him) It hurts...

(Hilltop)
Galvadian soliders: We're ready to activate the dish!
Galvadian Sliders:I found a weakspot in the cable so I'm gonna fix it!
Galvadian Sliders:Boosters are set!
Cypha: What the hell are those guys up to?
Squall: Repairing the satellite dish!
(all rise as soldiers leave)
Cypha: At this point anything goes. So is this your first time for live combat?
	   Scared?
Squall: I don't have time to worry about it.
Cypha: I love killing. Nothing gives the same rush! After we finish this mission 
we'll
	   be closer to our goal!
Squall: Gaol?
Cypha: It's a time when dreams come true!
Squall: Dreams? I don't care about your dreams. Don't bother rattling that crap
		off, I don't want to hear it.
Zell: Wait I want to listen if you're gonna talk tactics!
Cypha: What're you talking about? Someday I'll tell you. It's my ideal dream!
Zell: What the hell is he talking about?
Squall: I really hate it when he get's going on that crap. Let's go.

Wedge: Sergeant Biggs! I heard there is a monster on top of this thing! It 
could've
	   caused that damage! Sergeant Biggs!
Biggs: Shut up! I'm busy with this!
	   OK now this goes...ok and this...do this...ahhh...but I don't know why

	   want me to repair this old thing! I don't deserve this crap.

They'll be departing
				  then promptly!
Cypha: Leaving? Why?
Soldier of Darva: I don't know the details, I'm just a messenger...You didn't
