    III. Script ******************************************************************
    It is the late 1990s...
    The world is embarking on 
    an age of peace and stability. 
    Relations between the Cold War 
    superpowers have thawed.
    Regional conflicts are being 
    resolved. The threat of nuclear 
    war is now a thing of the past. 
    But there are some 
    who do not desire peace... 
    An atmosphere of tension begins 
    to build in the Middle East. 
    A military junta comes to power 
    in Zanzibar Land, a small nation 
    bordering on the USSR, China, 
    and the Middle East. 
    Zanzibar Land attacks nuclear 
    weapons disposal sites around 
    the world, seizing those weapons 
    that are still intact, and becomes 
    the world's only nuclear power. 
    It then begins to invade its 
    neighbors at will.
    After renouncing nukes forever, 
    the world is once again threatened
    by the specter of nuclear war. 
    Meanwhile, the world's oil supply, 
    which was to last another 30 
    years, suddenly, and unexpectedly 
    dries up. Without a safe 
    alternative source of energy, 
    the world faces a severe energy 
    It is in these dire circumstances 
    that Dr. Kio Marv, a Czech 
    biologist, develops "OILEX", 
    a microbe that can synthesize 
    high-grade petroleum. 
    With this discovery, global 
    tensions are once again on the 
    rise. On his way to attend an 
    American scientific conference, 
    Dr. Marv is kidnapped by agents 
    of Zanzibar Land. 
    With its nuclear weapons and 
    the secret of OILEX, Zanzibar Land 
    plans to achieve global military 
    A tiny microbe, only a few 
    microns wide, is about to change 
    the world forever. 
    Snake: This is Snake... I've reached the 
           infiltration point. 
    Campbell: Snake... Right on time, as always. 
              Let's get started... Commencing 
              Operation Intrude F014.
              Let's go over this one more time. 
              Your mission is to infiltrate Zanzibar 
              Land and rescue the kidnapped 
              Czech biologist, Dr. Kio Marv. 
              Snake, we've provided you with a 
              new anti-personnel sensor. Try 
              switching it on. 
    Snake: Roger... OK, it's on.
    Campbell: The white dots on your radar are 
              enemy soldiers. The red dot is your 
              current position. 
              The radar is equipped with several 
              other types of sensors as well. They 
              should warn you of any unseen 
    Snake: What's the radar's effective range? 
    Campbell: Take a look at your radar display. It 
              shows a 9-screen area centered on 
              your position. However, it may not 
              work in small, enclosed 
              Also, if the enemy spots you, you 
              won't be able to use the radar. The 
              enemy will use a jammer to 
              scramble it. 
    Snake: Got it. ...Where can I find Dr. Marv? 
    Campbell: Well. Dr. Marv has a transmitter 
              implanted in one of his molar teeth. 
              When you get close to him, he'll 
              show up as a red dot on your radar. 
    Snake: So I just have to keep an eye out 
           for the red dot... 
    Campbell: Snake, use frequency 140.85 for all 
              future communications with me. 
              ...Good luck. 
              ...Over and out. 
    Campbell: Use crawling to sneak through gaps 
              in the fence... Over and out. 
    Campbell: You can't sneak in through the 
              front door. Use the vents... Over 
              and out. 
    Holy: I'm Holly. Holly White. 
          I infiltrated Zanzibar Land a month 
          ago, posing as a journalist. 
          So I know pretty much how things 
          work around here... I'll help you any 
          way I can. 
          My frequency is 140.15. Call me... 
    *Boss Fight*
    Marv: Heh heh heh... Foolish FOXHOUND! 
          Dr. Marv isn't here! Figures that 
          FOXHOUND would use such a 
          cheap transmitter... You guys are 
          really behind the times. 
    (Marv removes his disguise) 
    Black Ninja: I am Black Ninja, a former member 
                 of NASA's extraterrestrial 
                 environment special forces unit. 
                 Now let's see just how strong the 
                 world's most advanced black ops 
                 unit really is! 
                 Show me what you got, 
    (Snake defeats Black Ninja)
    Black Ninja: ...Snake... 
    Snake: Who are you? ...How did you know 
           my name? 
    Black Ninja: It's... it's me... Schneider, Kyle 
                 Schneider. Remember me? 
    Snake: Schneider? ...You were in the 
           Resistance at Outer Heaven! 
           But... I thought they killed you! 
    Black Ninja: You've still got a lot to learn, 
                 I was almost killed, but not by 
                 them. By you, and your country. 
    Snake: What are you saying, Schneider? 
    Black Ninja: ...Snake, after you destroyed Metal 
                 NATO launched a massive bombing 
                 campaign against Outer Heaven. 
                 All of us Resistance fighters...and 
                 the children of Outer Heaven...they 
                 didn't care about any of us. 
                 There was no escape from the 
                 flames... They died like animals in a 
    Snake: I... can't believe this... 
    Black Ninja: Think about it. The children of 
                 Outer Heaven were originally was 
                 orphans and refugees from all over 
                 the world. 
                 They were a liability... and NATO
                 didn't want to deal with them... 
    Snake: ...No... 
    Black Ninja: You're no different. They'll forget 
                 about you, too... But he wasn't like 
    Snake: Who....?
    Black Ninja: He came... and saved us from 
                 He forgave us for what we'd done. 
                 He gave us a new land to call 
                 home... A new family... 
    Snake: He did...? You mean... 
    Black Ninja: Snake, you'll understand soon... 
                 what a wonderful man he is... 
                 Snake... I owe you a debt. There's 
                 no hate between us. I'll tell you 
                 where Dr. Marv is. 
                 It's what he would want me to do... 
                 Find the man who's guarding the 
                 cell where Dr. Marv is being held. 
                 Follow that man...and he should 
                 lead you straight to the cell. 
                 You can tell him by his green beret. 
                 He should be on the first floor. Got 
                 that? A green beret. 
                 Follow the man in the green beret! 
    (Black Ninja dies) 
    (Snake reaches the cell, which is empty but hears a knocking 
     coming from the wall that turns out to be a radio frequency)
    Snake: This is Solid Snake... 
           Come in.
    Dr. Madnar: Ah, I see you figured out my code... 
    Snake: Where's Dr. Marv? 
    Dr. Madnar: It's been a while. Eh, Solid Snake? 
    Snake: Dr. Drago Pettrovich Madnar? How 
           did you...?! 
    Dr. Madnar: Marv and I knew each other from 
                the Prague academy. We didn't 
                speak each otherís language, but
                were scientific comrades, after 
                a fashion. 
                I was captured along with Marv 
                while we were in America. 
    Snake: Where is Dr. Marv?! 
    Dr. Madnar: He was moved from here to the 
                tower building a few days ago. It's 
                a tall building a few kilometers north 
                of here. 
    Snake: Dammit, I'm late again! So Marv's 
           in the tower building? 
    Dr. Madnar: Snake, can you guess why they've 
                left me alive? 
    Snake: They must need you for 
           something...and that means... 
    Dr. Madnar: Yes... Metal gear. Snake it is 
                here... In Zanzibar Land. 
                They've already completed a new 
                Metal Gear. The one you destroyed 
                three years ago was only a 
                The new, improved Metal Gear is 
                many, many times more powerful! 
                They're also working on a light 
                version for mass 
    Snake: Then it was Metal Gear that 
           attacked the nuke disposal sites... 
    Dr. Madnar: Precisely. Metal Gear is a 
                nuclear-equipped walking tank. Its 
                true power is unleashed only when 
                it is armed with nuclear
                Zanzibar Land now has the only 
                nukes in the world. And now they 
                have their sights set on OILIX, a 
                miracle energy source. 
                Snake... Now that you know all this, 
                perhaps you can guess who is 
                behind it...? 
    Snake: Big... Boss?! 
    Dr. Madnar: The very same! With Metal Gear 
                and OILEX, he plots to rule the 
                world. We cannot let the secret of 
                OILEX fall into his hands! 
                Science is not meant to be used 
                only for killing. Marv's will is strong, 
                but his heart is weak. We must 
                I don't know how long he can 
                withstand their torture.
    Snake: If they use drugs on him, he won't 
           last long... 
    Dr. Madnar: Marv and I were both carrying 
                microtransmitters inside our bodies. 
                They were given to us by a female 
                agent from STB.
                You could get in touch with her if 
                you knew her frequency. 
    Snake: Madnar, what are you going to do? 
    Dr. Madnar: The wall separating us is made of
                Chobham armor plate. You can't 
                blast your way through it. Just leave 
                me here and go rescue Marv, 
    Snake: All right. I'll come back for you later. 
    Dr. Madnar: Snake... 
                My daughter Ellen is a fan of yours.
                She's not married yet, and I'm 
                afraid I... 
                ...Oh, and I have a zoologist friend, 
                Johan Jacobsen, who lives around 
                here. You can reach him on 
                frequency 140.40. 
                He'll tell you anything you need to 
                know about animals... 
    Snake: Don't worry. I'll make sure you get 
           home in time for your daughter's
    Dr. Madnar: Thank you, Snake...
    #1 Fan: Snake! Watch out! You're in a 
    Snake: Who are you? 
    #1 Fan: I'm your number one fan. Keep up 
            the good work.
    Kid: They told us this is a bottomless 
         swamp, and it's too dangerous to 
         get close... But... 
         I saw a big truck driving through 
         here. You believe me, right? 
    Kid: Trucks come in and out of here all 
         the time. 
    *Boss Fight* 
    Running Man: A visitor! What a pleasant surprise! 
                 ...And just in time, too.
                 I was about to go for a little run. 
                 I am Running Man, the world's 
                 fastest mercenary. No man can
                 keep up with me! 
                 See for yourself!! 
    (Running Man runs around)
    Running Man: ...pant...pant... What do you think? 
                 Pretty fast, eh? But I'm just getting 
                 warmed up!
                 Hear that sound? That's nerve 
                 gas. Defeat me before the gas gets 
                 to you, and you might survive. 
                 The clock is ticking... Let the race 
    (Snake defeats Running Man)
    Running Man: ...You... you used my speed against 
                 me... What's your name? 
    Snake: Snake... Solid Snake. 
    Running Man: ...Snake....? The cheetah has lost 
                 to a snake...? How could this 
    Snake: ...Guess you weren't fast enough. 
    (Running Man dies) 
    Kid: I know what that it! It's a stinger 
         They took some to the factory on 
         the west side of the Zanzibar 
         buildings 1st floor the other day. 
         Said they were gonna put them on 
         some tanks. 
    Kid: I hate people who use guns!
    Holly: That's signing sand, imported all 
           the way from Okinawa, Japan. 
           It squeaks when you walk on it. The 
           sand will give your position away, 
           so be careful...See ya.
    Campbell: You're good with a cardboard box,  
              right? Why not try posing as part of 
              the cargo? 
              I'm changing the frequency for our 
              future communications. 
              The new frequency can be found in 
              a photo in the software 
              manual...Over and out. 
    Holly: Snake! I'm in trouble! They 
           discovered my identity and now I'm 
           a prisoner! Help me! 
           Just when I finally managed to 
           contact Dr. Marv... 
    Snake: Where are you?! Give me your 
    Holly: ...I don't know. I was blindfolded. I 
           think it's somewhere in the tower 
           building... Oh yeah! 
           Snake! ...I hear noises! Off to the 
           left... I hear an elevator! 
           And to the right... I hear a noise 
           like a pump. There's water flowing 
           in front of me and behind me. 
    Snake: Water in front and behind... a pump 
           to the right... and an elevator to 
           the left? I think I've got a pretty 
           good picture now. 
    Holly: Snake, I don't think they know 
           about my radio yet. But come 
           quick! I'll be waiting. 
    Kid: There used to be a veranda south 
         of here, but the passage is buried 
    Kid: The one-eyed man is like our 
         daddy. He doesn't like grown-ups.
    Kid: Are you friends with the blond lady, 
    Kid: The one-eyed man told us to tell 
         him if we saw a man wearing green 
         The blond lady says he isn't here. 
    (After finding Holly)
    Holly: Thanks, Snake, you saved me! 
    Snake: ... 
    Holly: What's wrong? 
    Snake: I... didn't think you'd be this pretty. 
    Holly: What, you thought I'd be ugly? 
    Snake: I should have met up with you 
    Holly: Snake, about Dr. Marv... I'm pretty 
           sure he's OK. 
    Snake: Pretty sure? I thought you said 
           you'd made contact. 
    Holly: Well, I haven't actually met him. 
           He's under armed guard 
           somewhere... But he sent a 
           message by carrier pigeon. It might 
           be some kind of clue. 
    Snake: A pigeon? ...Where is it now? 
    Holly: I found it, but it flew away just as I 
           was about to catch it... I saw it 
           heading up the elevator in the 
           tower building. 
    Snake: Toward the roof?! 
    Holly: The bad guys are looking for it, 
           too. We have to find it before they 
           do. It's our only clue to Dr. Marv's
    Snake: A pigeon hunt... What are you going 
           to do? 
    Holly: I'd only get in your way. I want to 
           gather a little more info. I'm starting 
           to like this place less and less... 
           And then this happens. 
           If this keeps up, I'm really gonna let 
           'em have it! 
    Snake: I see you've still got spirit... Just 
           do anything crazy. 
    Holly: The enemy might be listening in, so 
           let's change our frequency to 
           140.76. OK, Snake? 
           Oh, and I made a copy of my IC 
           card. It's card 4. Here, take it... 
           See you later, Snake... Take care of 
    Snake: Holly!! 
    Holly: What..?
    Snake: That's the kind of thing you would 
           say to your boyfriend when you kiss 
           him goodbye. 
    Holly: ...Then what, Snake? ...What 
           should I say? 
    Snake: Stay alive, and we'll meet again 
    Holly: Deal. 
    (Holly leaves)
    Kid: The one-eyed man said we 
         shouldn't go against the current. 
         He said you can see lots of new 
         things, if you just go along with the 
         flow... Do you know what he 
    Kid: The water in the ditch is freezing. 
         You'll catch a cold if you stay in 
         too long. 
    Kid: I heard this ditch is connected to  
         the next building by jet stream. 
    Kid: Did you know? There's an old sewer 
         under the ditch. 
    *Boss Fight* 
    Snake: Wh.. What is this? ...A booby trap? 
    Red Blaster: That's right. A trap clever enough 
                 to catch a fox. Or should I say, a 
                 I am Red Blaster, and you're not 
                 going anywhere. My grenades will 
                 see to it that your death is 
                 slow...and painful.
    Holly: The door to the roof is painted 
           shut to prevent trespassers. 
           But it's jury-rigged, so you can 
           probably blow it up pretty easily with 
           plastic explosives...See ya.
    (After catching the Pigeon)
    Snake: Huh...? 
           There's a piece of paper tied to the 
           pigeon's leg. 
    KIO MARV... 
    Snake: Only the H is in lowercase... Some 
           kind of message from Dr. Marv?
           What could it mean? 
    (The message is Dr. Marv's Radio frequency upside down)
    Snake: This is Solid Snake... 
           Come in.
    Marv: Tady je Marv. Co ma delat? 
          Checeme jenom mir. 
          Delame pouze svjr ukol. Pevne 
          doufam, ze me zachranite. Mrj 
          Drahy puiteli! 
    Snake: ...What's he saying...? I can't 
           understand a word. Better ask 
    Snake: This is Solid Snake... 
           Come in.
    Dr. Madnar: Marv can only speak Czech and 
                Slovakian. He's also the wary type, 
                and especially so in his current 
    Snake: What about you, Madnar?
    Dr. Madnar: I can only speak Russian and 
                English... Wait, I've got it! Gustava 
                can speak to him! 
    Snake: Gustava? ...Is that the STB woman 
           who was protecting you? 
    Dr. Madnar: She'll be able to understand him, 
                and Marv trusts her well. 
    Snake: Is this Gustava still alive? 
    Dr. Madnar: Not to worry. Gustava is no 
                ordinary woman. She is a seasoned 
                When we were captured, she alone 
                managed to steal an enemy uniform 
                and escape. 
                No doubt she's hiding somewhere 
                inside Zanzibar Land, waiting for 
                her chance.
    Snake: Does she have a radio? 
    Dr. Madnar: No, it was taken away right after 
                we were captured... The only thing I 
                know is that she's wearing an 
                enemy uniform. 
    Snake: There must be some kind of clue I 
           can use... 
    Dr. Madnar: Here's your clue: She's a woman. 
                Don't be fooled by her enemy 
                disguise... There are no woman 
                soldiers in this fortress. 
                That's all you need to know. 
                Gustava is a woman. Why not set 
                up an ambush someplace that only 
                a woman would go? Like the ladies' 
                Over and out.
    Kid: The grown-ups always stand at 
         attention when they hear the 
         national anthem. It's one of their 
         weird rules. 
    Kid: There's only one bathroom here. 
         It's on the southeast side of this 
         floor... But I'm too scared to go 
         there at night... 
    Kid: If you catch a cold, go to the 
         infirmary and they'll give you some 
    Kid: There's a bunch of soldier 
         mannequins in there. 
    (After finding Gustava in the lady's bathroom)
    Snake: Gustava? 
    Gustava: ...Yes, that's me... I am Gustava 
             Heffner of STB. 
             And you must be Solid Snake... 
             We're after the same thing. Why 
             don't we work together to save Dr. 
    Snake: Have we met somewhere before? 
    Gustava: Hm, Typical western man. Always 
             ready with a pick-up line... 
    Snake: Now I remember! You're Gustava 
           Heffner, the Ice Princess. You took 
           the gold at the Calgary Olympics. 
    Gustava: ...You must be mistaken. 
    Snake: I don't think so. I know I've... 
    Gustava: Enough of this! What about Dr. 
    Snake: I made contact with him over the 
           radio, but he doesn't speak English. 
    Gustava: Then he's safe... Good. I'm glad he 
             had that surgery to implant the 
             microtransmitter. Snake, lend me 
             your radio... 
    Snake: The frequency is 140.51. 
    Gustava: Tady je Gustava. 
    Marv: Marv. 
    Gustava: Pane doktore! Jak se citite? 
    Marv: Dekuji citim se dobue. Gustava, 
          Vypadate velmi dobue. 
    Gustava: Kde jste? Pane doktone?
    Marv: Ne severu vezakr je rozsedlina. Za 
          ni maji koncentrak. Tam jsem. 
    Gustava: Urcite Vas zachranime. 
    Marv: Jsem vdecny. Dekuji. 
    Gustava: Snake, Dr. Marv is safe, for now. 
             He says there's a large crevice to 
             the north of the tower building. The 
             prison is on the other 
             Dr. Marv also expressed concern 
             about Dr. Madnar. 
    Snake: Don't worry. Madnar is safe. Right 
           now, we have to get Marv out of 
           there... Got it? 
    Gustava: I know a shortcut to the crevice. 
             There's an old sewer running under 
             here. We can take that elevator 
             down. Let's go. 
    Snake: Whoa! There's an elevator there? 
           What do you know... 
    (After Snake and Gustava rescue Dr. Madnar)
    Dr. Madnar: Oh! ...Gustava! Snake! 
    Gustava: Doctor, you're all right! 
    Snake: ...You've lost some weight, 
    Dr. Madnar: And you haven't changed a bit, 
    Gustava: Snake, we must hurry! Dr. Marv is 
    Dr. Madnar: You mean Marv is still alive? 
                I thought I could escape through 
                this passageway, but the elevator 
                wouldn't open from the inside. 
    Snake: Gustava, you and the doctor get 
           behind me. We're moving out! 
    Dr. Madnar: No, wait! Snake, I have something 
                to give you. 
                I swiped it from a guard... It's card 
    Gustava: Lead the way, Snake. I'll follow you. 
    Dr. Madnar: Snake, wait! I can't go on... I must 
                rest a little... 
    Gustava: Snake...? 
    Snake: All right... we'll take a short break. 
    Dr. Madnar: Please excuse me. I... have some 
                business to take care of. 
    (Dr. Madnar walks off screen)
    Gustava: ...How odd... 
    Snake: Give the guy a break. He's an old 
           man. He can't hold it like he used 
    Gustava: No, I mean us... A world-renowned 
             scientist, a former Olympic athlete, 
             and an ex-special agent, trudging 
             together through a sewer...
    Snake: ...Fate can be funny sometimes. 
    Gustava: Fate? Yes... perhaps you're 
             right... You know, when I was a little 
             girl, my mother used to tell me 
             about Poland during World War II... 
             about the Warsaw uprising. My 
             mother spent days in the sewers 
             under the city fleeing from the 
             her skin and clothes were caked 
             black with mud... You could not 
             even see her face... My mother and 
             I are much alike. We are both 
             haunted by war. 
    Snake: ...Gustava, why'd you quit skating 
           and join STB! You'd think an 
           Olympic medalist would get the 
           royal treatment, even in the East. 
    Gustava: ...Not exactly. It was something 
             about the ice... It felt... cold. 
    Snake: The ice...? 
    Gustava: Snake, are you married? 
    Snake: ...No, I don't have a family. You? 
    Gustava: I'm all alone... And it's not because 
             I like being single, either. Perhaps I 
             simply never had the chance. 
    Snake: What about a boyfriend? 
    Gustava: ...Once... only once... I thought 
             about getting married. It was back 
             when I was still skating. 
             I was deeply, madly in love... It still 
             hurts to think about it. He was a 
             Western man. His name was Frank 
             He was handsome, well-mannered, 
             intelligent... But always afraid. 
             I would have thrown it all away for   
             him. My family, skating, 
             everything... I would have followed 
             him anywhere. 
    Snake: You would have defected? 
    Gustava: Yes... But it was not to be. The 
             west rejected my bid for asylum at 
             the last minute. Some sort of 
             political reasons... I still don't  
    Snake: They probably just didn't have 
           room for you. It happens all the 
    Gustava: Ever since, my family and I have 
             lives a nightmare... We lost our right 
             to compete, were branded as 
             refuseniks... I had no choice but to 
             go into STB. 
             But I have no regrets. When I was 
             on the ice, I knew the ice. 
             Now I know so much more... I've 
             even killed a man. 
    Snake: What about him? Did you ever...? 
    Gustava: I never saw him again... our Berlin 
             Wall was too high for either of us to 
    Dr Madnar: Hello again! Sorry to keep you 
    Snake: That was some bathroom break. 
    Gustava: ...Let's go, Snake. 
    Snake: A bridge!! 
    Gustava: We can only cross it one at a time. 
    Dr. Madnar: Let me go first. I haven't long 
                to live anyway. No one will miss me 
                if I fall. 
    (Dr. Madnar crosses the bridge) 
    Dr. Madnar: It's allright! You can come across! 
    Gustava: OK, I'll go next... See you on the 
             other side, 
    (Gustava stops halfway across the bridge) 
    Gustava: It's safe, Snake! Hurry and cross 
    (A bomb comes out of nowhere, destroys the bridge, and sends 
     Gustava flying over to Snake) 
    Snake: Gustava!! 
           ..Gu... Gustava... 
    Gustava: ...Ah... Snake...
             I knew I couldn't do it... couldn't 
             find my footing off the ice... 
             I was always skating around... I 
             never learned to plant my two feet 
             on the ground and walk... 
    Snake: The ice is starting to thaw between 
           the East and West. Gustava, it's 
           time to start planting your feet on 
           the ground... don't give up now... 
    Gustava: It's too late for me... I've seen 
             enough people die already to 
             know... that I'm beyond saving. 
             ...Just my luck. Just when I'd met 
             someone wonderful again... 
    Snake: I would have liked to see you skate 
    Gustava: Th... thank you... Take this... it's 
             card 6. And this... it's my brooch. 
             To use it, you... 
    Snake: How? How do I use it? 
    Gustava: I... can't... hold on... 
    (Gustava dies) 
    Dr. Madnar: Snake!! 
    (Across the bridge, two guards take away Dr. Madnar, and 
     Metal Gear appears) 
    Snake: ...Metal Gear? 
    Gray Fox: Snake!! It's me. Gray Fox! 
    Snake: Gray... Fox... 
    Gray Fox: This bridge is closed!! I'm taking 
              Madnar with me! 
              Tell you what, Snake. For old times 
              sake, I'll do you a favor and let you 
              live, IF you get your sorry carcass 
              out of here! ...You hear me? Go 
              home! Now! 
              Think it over, Snake... Ha ha ha ha! 
    (Gray Fox leaves)
    Snake: Fox! You won't get rid of me that 
    Holly: Snake, you remember the veranda 
           in the tower building they use for 
           parachute jump training? 
           If you have a hang glider, you can 
           jump from there straight over the 
           There should be a hang glider on 
           the east side of the 1st floor of the 
           Zanzibar building. 
           I saw it once at Thanksgiving...See 
    Kid: Gustava's locker is the one in the 
         upper row, all the way to the right. 
         She always uses it when she comes 
         out of the sauna. 
    Kid: Ah, you found me! ...We're playing 
         hide and seek. 
    Kid: Wanna know a secret? 
         You know Gustava's brooch? It 
         changes shape when you put it in 
         the sauna or the freezer.
    *Boss Fight*
    Gray Fox: Snake! 
              Snake! ...It's me, Gray Fox. 
    Snake: Fox! 
    Gray Fox: You should have listened to my 
              warnings, Snake. Now I'm afraid our 
              friendship is at an end. 
              That elevator is going to be your 
    Snake: What?!
    Gray Fox: Do you hear that sound? That's a 
              assassination team. They specialize 
              in confined spaces... 
              I'm sure you'll put up a good fight.
    Snake: The ceiling---!! 
    Gray Fox: It was nice talking to you one last 
              time, Snake... Over and out. 
    Four Horsemen: We are the Four Horsemen, a 
                   top-secret assassination squad. 
                   We get our orders directly from the 
                   Consider this an honor... we only 
                   fry the big fish!
    Kid: That veranda was made for 
         parachute jumps. 
         But if you had a hang glider... I bet 
         you could jump even further! 
    #1 Fan: It's me. Your number one fan. You 
            can only jump from there when the 
            wind's blowing north. 
            It usually blows south, but 
            sometimes it changes, just for an 
            That's your chance. Don't miss it.

    Jungle Evil: I've been waiting for you, Snake! I 
                 am Jungle Evil, the undisputed 
                 master of the jungle ambush. 
                 Let's see whether you're a real 
                 snake or not! 
    Kid: Know what? At night, they turn off 
         the power. So all the laser fences 
         get turned off, too. 
         Then we get to play inside, as long 
         as the grown-ups don't catch us. 
    Kid: I hear owls at night... It's so scary. I 
         can't sleep. 
    Kid: They keep the animals in a room 
         northwest of here. 
    Kid: There's lots of rats in the jail. They 
         steal all kinds of things and take 
         them back to their nests. 
         The grown-ups put out sulfuric acid 
         to try and get rid of them. 
    Kid: I want chocolate! Mister, do you 
         have a B1 ration? 
         B1 rations have chocolate in them.

    #1 Fan: It's me... your number one fan. 
            Snake, watch yourself. 
            You've got company - Night Fright, 
            the last surviving member of the 
            Whispers... You know, the legendary 
            guerilla unit. 
    Snake: Night Fright... 
    #1 Fan: He's wearing a state-of-the-art 
            camouflage suit that makes him 
            practically invisible. 
            Not only that, he'll attack you with 
            a gun that's completely silent. 
            No one has ever seen his face. You 
            know what you have to do, right?? 
    Snake: Lucky me... I've got a fan club. 
    #1 Fan: Use your ears, Snake! ...Over and 
    #1 Fan: You should be able to get card 9 
            from Jungle Evil! 
    Snake: Don't you mean card 8? He only 
           had card 8. 
    #1 Fan: No, he was in charge of card 8 
            AND 9. 
            He must have dropped it 
            somewhere. Check the area he was 
            in! The card should be there. Keep 
            up the good work. 
    (After Snake finds Dr. Madnar and Dr. Marv)
    Dr. Madnar: Ah! ...Snake, you're too late. He's 
                already passed away. 
                His heart couldn't take it anymore. 
    Snake: Wait... what's that bruise on his 
    Dr. Madnar: Not to worry, Snake. Marv may be  
                dead, but the plans for OILIX are 
                Marv was a very clever man. He 
                left behind a copy of the plans in 
                case of emergency. 
                He had a reputation as a video 
                game enthusiast. He even used to 
                have them shipped to him from the 
                West every month. 
                A few days ago, he hid some 
                microfilm in the circuit of one 
                of his game cartridges. 
                It was an MSX cartridge, made by a 
                Japanese company called Konami. 
    Snake: MSX... That's the world's 
           best selling brand of computer, isn't 
    Dr. Madnar: The he hid the cartridge inside 
                that locker. 
    Snake: Where's the key? 
    Dr. Madnar: I don't know... I could never get it out 
                of him. I mean... He never told me! 
    Holly: Snake! You're in danger!! 
    Snake: Holly! What's wrong! 
    Holly: Snake, it's Madnar... I thought there 
           was something strange about him, 
           so I had the agency check him out. 
           After he was rescued from Outer 
           Heaven... apparently things didn't 
           go well for him. 
    Holly: His radical theories were rejected in 
           the West. 
           He was dismissed as a madman 
           and shut out from the scientific 
           community. And as time went on... 
           he was forgotten. 
           Madnar wasn't exactly happy with 
           the scientific community, either. He 
           must have been searching for some 
           to get back at them. 
           That's when Zanzibar Land talked 
           him into becoming a double agent. 
           He'd use his status as a scientist to 
           feed technological secrets from 
           East and West to Zanzibar Land...
    Snake: And, Dr. Marv's disappearance...? 
    Holly: Right. The timing is too perfect. 
           Madnar must have given them 
           every detail of Marv's itinerary in 
           the U.S. 
    Snake: Madnar was after OILEX all along. 
           That's why he wanted to go to 
           America with Marv. 
    Dr. Madnar: I'm afraid you've got me, Snake. 
                I gave up everything to be a part of 
                your world... Even the country I was 
                born and raised in... 
                But your world had nothing but 
                contempt and abuse for me. 
                I just wanted... to finish Metal Gear! 
                It is the culmination of all my life's 
                work in robotology. 
                But your politicians were only 
                interested in nonsense like SDI, 
                NEDW, and brain bombs!  
                I passed on the scientific secrets of 
                the East and the West to Zanzibar 
                And in return, they aided me in my 
                efforts to improve Metal Gear. 
    Snake: Madnar, did you kill Dr. Marv? 
    Dr. Madnar: ...Yes! He would not share the 
                secret of OILIX with me! 
                And it was I who caused Gustava's 
                death on the bridge by contacting 
                Fox from the sewer! 
    Snake: The bathroom break...!
    Dr. Madnar: Snake, I know Marv - no, Gustava 
                - gave you the key to the locker! 
                Give it to me!! 
    (Dr. Madnar jumps on Snake and chokes him)
    Snake: I.. can't breathe...
    (Snake defeats Dr. Madnar) 
    (After Snake returns with the key for the locker and 
     retrieves the Cartridge from it) 
    Dr. Madnar: S... Snake... 
                Snake... he'll never let you get 
                He'll use it... he'll use Metal Gear. 
                I have one last gift... for my 
                daughter Ellen...
                I'll tell you how to destroy it. 
    Snake: How to destroy Metal 
    Dr. Madnar: Try as I might, I could not reconcile 
                East and West in my heart of 
                But Ellen is different. Snake... you 
                must do this for Ellen, the daughter I 
                left behind. 
    Snake: How do I destroy Metal Gear? 
    Dr. Madnar: The armor is thinnest on the legs... 
                use grenades on the legs. It is the 
                only way...
    (A hole opens beneath Snake and he falls down it)
    Gray Fox: The final delusions of a senile old 
              man. There's no way to destroy 
              this Metal Gear, Snake!
    Snake: Fox!! ...Where are you? 
    Gray Fox: Come and find out, Snake. Go 
              through the front door? 
    *Boss Fight*
    (Snake goes through the front door and finds 
     Metal Gear piloted by Gray Fox)
    Gray Fox: Snake... I'm not the same as I used
              to be. And neither is Metal Gear. 
              I'll show you what fear really is. 
              Prepare to taste defeat! 
    (Snake destroys Metal Gear)
    Gray Fox: The cartridge is mine, Snake! 
              ...Burn in hell! 
    (Gray Fox runs off) 
    Campbell: Snake! Your items are on fire! 
              Throw away all your weapons and 
              equipment! Quickly! Use the O 
    *Boss Fight*
    (Snake drops all his equipment 
     then runs after Gray Fox)
    Snake: Where am I? 
    Gray Fox: The perfect ring for our final battle. 
              It's been a while, Snake... Here we 
              are, back in the minefield... What 
              say we go at it hand to hand! 
    Snake: A chicken fight! 
    Gray Fox: The two greatest rivals in 
              FOXHOUND... I've been waiting for 
              this moment for a long time. 
    Snake: Fox! 
           I'll beat some sense into you! 
    Gray Fox: Snake! 
              It's time for you to learn why they 
              call me Fox!
    Kasler: Gray Fox... Real name, Frank  
            Jaeger. Former member of 
            He was the last man to hold the 
            title of Fox in the Big Boss era. 
            Decorated fives times... 
    Snake: Yeah, I know all about how good 
           he is... Better than anyone else. I 
           fought with him. 
           He's a cold-blooded hunter. He 
           never let's his prey escape. 
           Everybody in the unit respected 
           him. Looked up to him. 
    Kasler: That may be, Snake... but do you 
            know about his past? It might help 
            you out... 
            10 years ago, we in the mercenary 
            trade knew him as Hunter. That's 
            what Jaeger means in German. 
            Back then, he was involved with 
            some woman from the Eastern 
            He tried to get her to come over 
            the fence, but it fell through. 
            Apparently the West wasn't 
            interested in taking her. That's
            when Frank started to hate the 
    Snake: What was the woman's name? 
    Kasler: She was an Olympic skater. Name 
            was Gustava Heffner... Real fine 
            woman. Movie-star type. 
    Snake: G... Gustava...Heffner?! 
    Kasler: Snake! If you mange to beat Fox.. 
            I'll tell everyone that Solid Snake is 
            the greatest mercenary in the world. 
            ...Over and out. 
    (Snake defeats Gray Fox)
    Gray Fox: Snake... 
              Looks like it's finally time for me to 
              give up the title of "Fox". 
    Snake: Fox... why? 
    Gray Fox: I'm not like you, Snake... My 
              situation is more... complicated. 
              Big Boss might have been just 
              another CO to you, but he saved 
              my life - twice. This was way before 
              I joined the unit. 
              The first time, I was half-white 
              living in Vietnam... It was after the 
              war, and half-whites were being 
              sent into forced labor 
              He saved me from that living hell. 
              Just like he saved all the children 
              The second time was in 
              Mozambique. I was being tortured 
              as a RENAMO soldier, and he 
              saved me again. They'd cut off my 
              ears and my nose...
    Snake: And this is your idea of paying him 
    Gray Fox: No, you've got it wrong. I hate war. 
              Just like all the kids here. But... I 
              need it. 
              War is all we know. We can't make 
              it in the normal world. We need the 
              battlefield to survive.
              Big Boss gives us a place to fight. 
              Conflict is on our blood. We can't 
              deny it. 
              I was born on the battlefield... And 
              I'll die on the battlefield. All I can 
              do is fight, Snake... all I can do is 
              Making people happy... making a  
              woman happy... is something I 
              could never do. 
    Snake: You mean...
    Gray Fox: Guess I was always fated to die in 
    Snake: Rest easy, Fox. I swear I won't turn 
           out like you. 
    Gray Fox: Won't turn out like me... I'll have to 
              remember that. ...Fight hard, Snake. 
              ...Don't let your fans down. 
    Snake: My fans?! ...It was you, wasn't it? 
           ...You were the voice on the radio! 
    Gray Fox: Call it payback for being so selfish... 
              See you on the other side, Snake. 
    Snake: You won't be alone, Frank. Gustava 
           is waiting for you. 
    Gray Fox: ...Gustava... 
              ...Thank you... Snake... 
    (Gray Fox dies and leaves behind the cartridge)
    *Boss Fight*
    (Right after the battle with Gray Fox, 
     a voice calls Snake) 
    Over here, Snake! 
    Over here, Snake! 
    (Snake follows the voice)
    Snake: Big Boss... you're alive?! 
    Big Boss: Snake... 
              Welcome to Zanzibar Land... I knew 
              you'd come back to me. 
    Snake: I came to get rid of the nightmares 
           I've been having for the past three 
    Big Boss: The nightmares? They never go 
              away, Snake. Once you've been on 
              the battlefield, tasted the 
              exhilaration, the tension... it all 
              becomes part of you. 
              Once you've awakened the warrior 
              within... it never sleeps again. You
              crave even bigger tensions, ever 
              bigger thrills.
              As a mercenary, I'd think you would 
              have realized that by now. 
              You care nothing for power, or 
              money, or even sex. The only thing 
              that satisfies your cravings... is 
              All I've done is give you a place for 
              it. I've given you a reason to live. 
    Snake: I would never have made you for 
           such a hypocrite, Big Boss...
    Big Boss: You saw those children, didn't 
              you? Every one is a victim of a war 
              somewhere of the world. And they'll 
              make fine soldiers in the next  
              Start a war, for its flames, create 
              victims... Then save them, train 
              them... And feed them back onto 
              the battlefield. 
              It's a perfectly logical system. In 
              this world of ours, conflict never 
              ends. And neither does our 
              purpose... our raison
    Snake: So there's plenty of job 
           opportunities... Is that what you're 
           trying to say? 
    Big Boss: On the battlefield, you and I are 
              valuable commodities. But back 
              "home", we're nothing but dead 
              If we're lucky, we might get the 
              attention of some two-bit journalist 
              from a cheap tabloid.
              You and I are doomed to remain 
              here until we die like dogs on the 
    Snake: ...I've only got one fight left. To 
           free myself from your grip, to rid 
           myself of these nightmares... Big 
           Boss, I will defeat you! 
    Big Boss: It doesn't matter who wins here. 
              Our fight will continue. The loser will 
              be liberated from the battlefield, 
              and the survivor will live out the 
              rest of his days as a soldier. 
    Snake: It doesn't have to be that way. I'm 
           not like you. I love life!
    Big Boss: Very well, Snake. I'll release you 
              from your suffering. As your former 
              commander, I'll do you one last 
              favor... and put you out of your 
    Snake: I don't need any more favors from 
    Big Boss: Really?... 
              And just how do you expect to beat 
              me in your condition? With no 
    Snake: Never give up. Fight until the end. 
           Always believe you will succeed, 
           even when the odds are against
           you. ...Those are your words.
    Big Boss: Even I make mistakes from time to 
              This will be our final battle... Let's 
              end this once and for all! 
    (Snake sets Big Boss on fire using a lighter 
     and a spray can)
    Big Boss: Snake!! 
              It's not over yet... 
              It's not... over... yet... 
              It's not... over... yet... 
              Snake sn... a...
    (Big Boss dies)
    (A Guard comes up from behind Snake)
    Guard: Freeze! 
    Holly: It's OK! It's ME, Snake. 
    Snake: Holly?! 
    Holly: Did I scare you? 
    Snake: Whew... that was a close one. So... 
           what's going on? What are you 
           doing here? 
    Holly: You said it yourself. Stay alive, and 
           we'll meet again sometime. 
    Snake: ...So I did. 
    Holly: Ugh... that uniform was too tight in  
           the chest... Ahh, I feel much better 
           Here, I stole this gun from the 
           enemy. You can have it. 
    Snake: Yeah... I can see how it'd be hard 
           for a woman to use. Thanks. 
    Holly: ...So it's all over now. Right, 
    Snake: No... I still have one more job to 
    Holly: ...You can't be serious...
    Snake: I'm dead serious, Holly. 
    Holly: Snake... no, you can't... 
    Snake: ...Heh heh heh. ...You want me to 
           call you a cab?
    Holly: ...Oh my god... That wasn't funny, 
    Snake: This is Snake. Come in, Charlie. 
    Pilot: This is Charlie. Go ahead, Snake...
    Snake: I've got the cartridge. I'm ready to 
           return to base. Making my way to 
           the rendezvous point now! 
    Pilot: Roger that. I'll meet you there. 
           ...Any passengers? 
    Snake: ...Just one. Blond, with a cute face. 
    Pilot: Sounds like a dream... Over and 
    Snake: Holly, we've got to run as fast as 
           we can to the rendezvous point. 
           Think you can keep up? 
    Holly: ...Is that a proposition, Snake? 
    Snake: I'll take that as a yes. 
    (Snake and Holly reach the rendezvous point) 
    Snake: What the hell is taking you so 
           long? We're going to be here till 
    Pilot: This is Charlie. I'm 10 kilometers 
           from the rendezvous point. 
           Hold tight a little bit longer! Over 
           and out... 
    Snake: Hurry!! 
    Snake: Damn it!! I'm out of ammo! 
    Holly: Snake!! 
    (Snake and Holly are surrounded by enemies)
    (The chopper arrives and shoots all the enemies)
    Holly: It's the chopper... we're saved! 
    Snake: Charlie... you're late! 
    Pilot: Sorry, man. I didn't want to interrupt 
           you two lovebirds. 
    Snake: Think we'll be home in time for 
    Holly: We'll be home in time for dinner, 
    Snake: Let's go, then... 
           I'm really looking forward to Christmas 
           I'm sick of these rations.
