Dialogue Lines

Introducing the therapy session

Eliza: My chamber, lord, to thee I beg a chance / To wit amend thy crag-swept countenance [Eliza001]

Eliza: The glimpse of madness I've seen in thy face / Can physician with tapper chase away. [Eliza002]

Eliza: If thou sit'st here with me and close thine eyes, / And fold thy hands across thy breast like so, [Eliza003]

Eliza: My art that Freud and Jung taught down from high, / That flourishes in clinic and in school, [Eliza004]

Eliza: Can drive the demons from within thy mind, / And bring thee to a state of better health. [Eliza005]

Regan: Speak plainly, woman. What wilt thou of me? [Regan001]

Eliza: Sit, sit, lord. And speak of thy memories. [Eliza006]

Regan: My memories are mine. I dare not share. [Regan002]

Eliza: Then merely think of them. I dare not pry. [Eliza007]

Regan: But thou canst help me? [Regan003]

Eliza: Yea, sir. Tap left then right then left again. / While visting the trauma of thy past. [Eliza008]

Regan: I'll play thy game, doctor. When do I start? [Regan004]

Eliza: Now. Think of a memory of the past. / If thou succeedst, we'll try the next flashback. [Eliza009]

On failing a rhythm challenge

Eliza: My lord, remember what I bid thee do / Tap left, then right, as quickly as thou canst. [Eliza010]

After the first flashback

Eliza: Well done, my lord. Thou hast accessed a glimpse, / Of what thy mind will do whence processed this. [Eliza011]

Regan: I saw a woman's face-- [Regan005]

Eliza: That's thy late wife. / Thy greatest partner in thy enterprise. [Eliza012]

Eliza: She led thy rise from partner to exec. / When cowardice unmanned thee she was there. [Eliza013]

Regan: She should have died hereafter. [Regan006]

Eliza: Thou thinkst thou can anticipate hereafter? [Eliza014]

Regan: Aye; three witches did for me last winter. [Regan007]

Eliza: Perhaps that should be our next memory? [Eliza015]

Regan: Perhaps. [Regan008]

Eliza: Prepare thy tappers; we'll begin again. [Eliza016]

After the Second Flashback

Regan: The witches were the first to see the truth. / They galled me into murder and I flew. [Regan009]

Regan: Once this might have seemed the right thing to do, / But now I have an empire in uproar. [Regan010]

Regan: I start to see why it was wise of me. / To block these wisps of mem'ry from my mind. [Regan011]

Eliza: Shall we move on? Thou wouldst be wise to end / This quest for self-discovery thou hast embarked. [Eliza017]

Regan: Begin again, good doctor. Make it quick. [Regan012]

Eliza: Dost thou really want to know the answer? / Deeper still must we dive into the matter. [Eliza018]

After the Third Flashback

Regan: What is this? Does thou seek to drive me mad? [Regan013]

Eliza: Nay, my lord, thy downfall would lack sweetness. / Should thouh forget what ledst thee to this place. [Eliza019]

Eliza: Now come and lead thine army to its ruin. / Led by a man not yet of woman born. [Eliza020]

Eliza: Now, at least, our chase can be brought to end. [Eliza021]
