Part 1

Sector 1 Reactor

Unnamed: C'mon newcomer. Follow me.

Biggs: Wow! You used to be in SOLDIER all right! ...Not everyday ya find one in a group like AVALANCHE.

Jessie: SOLDIER? Aren't they the enemy?

Jessie: What's he doing with us in AVALANCHE?

Biggs: Hold it, Jessie. He WAS in SOLDIER.
He quit them and now is one of us.

Biggs: Didn't catch your name...

(Menu text appears for name entry.)
On-screen: Please enter a name.

(Upon selecting the name "Cloud".)
Cloud: ...Cloud.

Biggs: Cloud, eh? I'm...

Cloud: I don't care what your names are. Once this job's over...I'm outta here.

Unnamed: The hell you all doin'!? I thought I told you never to move in a group! Our target's the North Mako Reactor. We'll meet on the bridge in front of it. Ex-SOLDIER, huh? Don't trust ya!

(Menu text appears for name entry.)
On-screen: Please enter a name.

(Upon selecting the name "Barret".)

Barret: If you push the Directional button while pushing the [CANCEL] button to run. (earlier marked X)

(Upon talking to Wedge.)

  • I'll secure the escape passage. Concentrate on the mission, Cloud.
  • Geez, we're really gonna blow this huge furnace up? This'll be somethin' to see!

Barret: Yo! This your first time in a reactor?

Cloud: No. After all, I did work for Shinra, y'know.

Barret: The planet's full of Mako energy. People here use it every day.

Barret: It's the life blood of this planet. But Shinra keeps suckin' the blood out with these weird machines.

Cloud: I'm not here for a lecture. Let's just hurry.

Barret: That's it! You're comin' with me from now on.

(Upon talking to Biggs before deciphering first door.)
Biggs: Code deciphered

(Upon talking to Biggs after deciphering first door.)
Biggs: Think how many of our people risked their lives, just for this code...

(Upon talking to Jessie before deciphering first door.)
Jessie: Biggs and I got the code for this door.

(Upon talking to Jessie after deciphering first door, before deciphering second.)
Jessie: Code deciphered

(Inside the elevator.)
Jessie: Push that button over there!

(Upon pushing the switch.)
On-screen: Switch On.

Barret: Little by little the reactors'll drain out all the life. And that'll be that.

Cloud: It's not my problem.

Barret: The planet's dyin', Cloud!

Cloud: The only thing I care about is finishin' this job before security and the Roboguards come.

(Upon talking to Jessie in front of the ladder.)
Jessie: Push the [OK] button in front of a ladder to grab on to it. After that, use the [Directional button] to move up and down.

(Upon approaching reactor core.)
Barret: When we blow this place, this ain't gonna be nothin' more than a hunka junk.

Barret: Cloud, you set the bomb.

Cloud: Shouldn't you do it?

Barret: Jus' do it! I gotta watch to make sure you don't pull nothin'.

Cloud: Fine, be my guest.

On-screen: Watch out! This isn't just a reactor!!

Barret: ......What's wrong?

Cloud: Huh?

Barret: What's wrong, Cloud? Hurry it up!

Cloud: ...Yeah, sorry.

Barret: Heads up, here they come!

(During battle with Guard Scorpion (Final Fantasy VII).)

(If Cloud and Barret are alive.)
Cloud: Barret, be careful!

(If only Cloud is alive.)
Cloud: It's gonna fire that laser...

(After either of the previous lines.)
Cloud: Attack while it's tail's up! It's gonna counterattack with its laser.

(If only Barret is alove.)
Barret: I dunno what's goin' on, but... it looks pretty bad. Let's see what it does when it's tail's up...

(After Guard Scorpion is defeated.)
Cloud: Come on, let's get outta here!

On-screen: Ten minutes to detonation!

Cloud: The alarm!

(Upon talking to Jessie.)
Cloud: You all right?

Jessie: My leg got stuck.

Jessie: Thanks!

(Upon talking to Jessie before deciphering second door.)
Jessie: Code deciphered

(Upon talking to Jessie after deciphering second door.)
Jessie: Alright, be careful.

(Upon talking to Biggs if Jessie's leg wasn't freed.)
Biggs: Jessie still hasn't come up yet!

(Upon talking to Biggs if the second door was deciphered but the first was not.)
Biggs: Code deciphered

(Upon talking to Biggs if the above conditions are not true.)
Biggs: Let's go!

(After Sector 7 Reactor was destroyed.)
Biggs: That should keep the planet going... at least a little longer.

Wedge: Yeah.

Barret: .........

Jessie: OK! Now everyone get back.

Sector 8

Barret: All right, now let's get out of here.

Barret: Rendezvous at Sector 8 station! Split up and get on the train!

Cloud: H, hey!

Barret: If it's about your money Save it 'til we're back at the hideout.

(Upon interacting with flower girl.)
Flower girl: Excuse me.

Flower girl: What happened?

(Upon selecting "You'd better get out of here".)
Flower girl: Really? I don't know what's going on, but all right.

(Upon selecting "Nothing...hey, listen...".)
Cloud: ............

(Upon selecting "Don't see many flowers around here".)
Flower girl: Oh, these? Do you like them? They're only a gil...?

(Upon selecting "Never mind".)
Flower girl: What! Tell me!

Flower girl: Uh,excuse me,would you like to buy some flowers? They're only one gil.

(Upon selecting "Buy one".)
Flower girl:

  • Oh, thank you!
  • Here you are!

(Upon selecting "Forget it".)
Flower girl: Ahh...not again.

(Upon talking to the person walking.)

  • Unnamed: Just what the hell's going on!?

(Upon talking to the person standing.)

  • Unnamed: Wonder what that is on the wall over there. Let's see...Don't be fooled by Shinra! Mako energy doesn't last forever! Mako is the planet's lifesource! The end is in sight! Protectors of the planet: AVALANCHE

(Upon being spotted by soldiers.)
Soldier: Hey! You there!!

TBV: Cloud: Shinra Soldiers......
Provided options:

  • Fight them!
  • Later!

(After defeating them in a battle upon selecting "Fight them!".) Unnamed: What the?

Cloud: hmph!

(Upon selecting "Later!" and avoiding battle.)
Soldier: Halt!!

TBV: (After more soldiers arrive, regardless of previous option.)

  • Fight them!
  • Later!

(After defeating them in a battle upon selecting "Fight them!".)
Soldier: That's him!!

Cloud: hmph!

TBV: (After more soldiers arrive, regardless of previous options.)

  • Fight them!
  • Later

(After defeating them in a battle upon selecting "Fight them!".)
Soldier: Over here!!

Cloud: hmph!

(After more soldiers arrive, regardless of previous options.)
Soldier: That's as far as you go.

Cloud: I don't have time to be messin' around with you guys.

Soldier: Enough babbling...... Grab him!!

Cloud: What a pain......

Sector 8 train

Wedge: Cloud never came.

Biggs: Cloud...... Wonder if he was killed?

Barret: No way!!

Jessie: Cloud......

Biggs: Say, do you think Cloud's...... Going to fight to the end for AVALANCHE!?

Barret: The hell would I know!? Do I look like a mind reader? Hmph!! If y'all weren't such screw-ups...

Wedge: Hey, Barret! What about our money...? Uh, nothin'...sorry. Ahhh......

Wedge: Cloud!!

Biggs: Cloud!!

Jessie: Cloud......

Cloud: Looks like I'm a little late.

Barret: You damn right, you're late!! Come waltzin' in here makin' a big scene!

Cloud: It's no big deal. Just what I always do.

Barret: Shi't! Havin' everyone worried like that you don't give a damn 'bout no one but yourself!

Cloud: Hmm...... You were worried about me!

Barret: Wha!? I'm takin' it outta your money, hot stuff!

Barret: Wake up! We're movin' out! Follow me!

Wedge: Hey, Cloud!! You were great back there!

Biggs: Heh heh......Cloud! We'll do even better next time.

Jessie: Be careful, I'll shut this.

Jessie: Oh, Cloud!! Your face is pitch-black......

Jessie: There you go!

Jessie: Say, thanks for helping me back there at the Reactor!

(Upon entering next car.)
On-screen: Last train out of Sector 8 Station. Last stop is Sector 7, Train Graveyard. Expected time of arrival is 12:23AM, Midgar Standard Time...

Unnamed: This is why I hate the last train. Hoo-boy...

(Upon talking to the man sleeping on the right.)
Unnamed: Huh...? This is my house, so make yourselves at home.

(Upon talking to the man sitting on the left.)
Unnamed: You see the headlines in the Shinra Times? The terrorists that bombed the No. 1 Reactor are based somewhere in the slums. ...blowing up a Reactor... they sure put some thought into this one. They must have a real calculating leader. I wonder what they'll do next?

(Upon talking to Barret.)
Barret: Stop actin' like a damn kid. Si'down an' shu'up!

(Upon talking to Biggs.)
Biggs: It seems this train hasn't switched to security mode yet. I'm sure that will change by tomorrow.

(Upon talking to Biggs a second time.)
Biggs: ...YAWN...that sure took its toll on me. I'm gonna sleep till we get to the station.

(Upon talking to Wedge.)
Wedge: Someday AVALANCHE's gonna be famous ...and me, too!

(Upon talking to Wedge a second time.)
Wedge: Cloud!! Don't ya think I got a bright future ahead of me?

(Upon selecting "What do you have in mind?".)
Wedge: All my life, I felt like nothin' but a sidekick. But, after joinin' AVALANCHE and tryin' to save the Planet, I feel like I can do lots of things.

(Upon selecting "I wouldn't hold my breath".)
Wedge: Oh man, that's pretty harsh, Cloud. You really think I won't?

(Upon attempting to go to the next car.)

  • Unnamed: Please!! You're bothering the other passengers.

(Upon talking to Jessie.)
Jessie: Hey, Cloud. You want to look at this with me? It's a map of the Midgar Rail System. Let's look at it together. I'll explain it to you.

Jessie: I like this kinda stuff. Bombs and know, flashy stuff.

(While viewing Midgar Rail System map.)
Jessie: Okay, it's about to start.

Jessie: This is a complete model of the city of Midgar. It's about a 1/10000 scale. The top plate is about 50 meters above ground. A main support structure holds the plate up in the center, and there are other support structures built in each section... psst...whisper...whisper... (The No. 1 Reactor we blew up was in the northern section.) Then there's No.2, No.3 all the way up to the No.8 Reactor. The 8 Reactors provide Midgar with electricity. Each town used to have a name, but no one in Midgar remembers them. Instead of names, we refer to them by numbered sectors. That's the kind of place this is.

Jessie: Phew..., this is next! Look.

Jessie: This is the route this train is on. The route spirals around the main support structure. We should be coming around the center area, right now. At each checkpoint, an ID sensor device is set up. It can check the identities and background on each and every passenger on the train by linking it up to the central data bank at Shinra headquarters. whisper...whisper... (Anyone could tell that we look suspicious, so we're using fake ID's.)

(After view has closed.)
Jessie: Speak of the devil... That light means that we're in the ID Security Check area. ...whisper...whisper... (When the lights go off, you never know what kind of creeps'll come out.) ...anyhow, we're almost back now. That's a relief.

(Upon talking to Biggs.)
Biggs: ...snore...heebeebeeheebee...snore... (Don't act so damn big, Barret...snooze...)

(Upon talking to Wedge.)
Wedge: I'm seein' stars. This sucks. I hate the dark.

(Upon talking to Wedge.)
Jessie: I know! Next time, I'll give you one I made myself.

(Upon selection "Thanks anyway".)
Jessie: Oh yeah, you might regret it. I'm the type who takes things personal.

(Upon selecting "Looking forward to it".)
Jessie: Okay, then I'll put a little extra effort in and make it with a BANG.

(Upon talking to Jessie again.)
Jessie: We're almost there. After talking with you, I really want to do it! I think you've lit my fuse!

(Upon approaching Barret.)
Barret: can see the surface now. This city don't have no day or night. If that plate weren't there... we could see the sky.

Cloud: A floating city... Pretty unsettling scenery.

Barret: Huh? Never expect ta hear that outta someone like you. jes' full of surprises.

Barret: The upper world...a city on a plate... It's 'cuz of that &^#$# 'pizza', that people underneath are sufferin'!

Barret: And the city below is full of polluted air.

Barret: On topa that, the Reactor keeps drainin' up all the energy.

Cloud: Then why doesn't everyone move onto the Plate?

Barret: Dunno. Probably 'cuz they ain't got no money. Or, maybe... 'Cuz they love their land, no matter how polluted it gets.

Cloud: I know... no one lives in the slums because they want to. It's like this train. It can't run anywhere except where its rails take it.

Sector 7

Barret: Yo!! Get over here, all'ya!!

(Upon avoiding Barret.)
Barret: Yo, Cloud! You lissen up!

(Upon reaching Barret.)
Barret: This mission was a success. But don't get lazy now. The hard part's still to come! Don't y'all be scared of that explosion!

Barret: Cause the next one's gonna be bigger than that!

Barret: Meet back at the hideout!! Move out!

(Upon talking to Barret in front of 7th Heaven.)
Barret: Ok! Go on ahead.

(Upon talking to Barret again, or after waiting a few seconds.)
Barret: You! Cloud!! Get off your slow-movin' ass!!

7th Heaven

Unnamed: Papa!!

Unnamed: Marlene! Aren't you going to say anything to Cloud? Welcome home, Cloud. Looks like everything went well. Did you fight with Barret?

(Upon selecting "Yeah".)
Unnamed: I should have known. He's always pushing people around, and you've always been in fights ever since you were little. I was worried.

(Upon selecting "Not this time".)
Unnamed: Hmm. You've grown up. When you were little you used to get into fights at the drop of a hat.

(Menu text appears for name entry.)
On-screen: Please enter a name.

(Upon selecting the name "Tifa", if flowers were bought.)
Tifa: Flowers? How nice... You almost never see them here in the slums.

Tifa: But...
A flower for me? Oh Cloud, you shouldn't have...

Cloud: No big.

(Upon selecting "Give it to Tifa".)
Tifa: Thank you, Cloud. It smells wonderful.
Maybe I should fill the store with flowers.

Tifa: Cloud, this one still has roots. I can probably start others from it.

(Upon selecting "Give it to Marlene", nothing.)

(Upon selecting the name "Tifa", if no flowers had been purchased.)
Tifa: I'm so glad everyone's safe.

(Upon talking to Biggs.)
Biggs: Aaah!! Nothin' like that first drink after a job.

Biggs: Hic!! Why don't you have one too?

(Upon selecting "No".)
Biggs: What!? You tellin' me you're too good to drink with me? Don't act big-headed jus' because you were in SOLDIER!

(Upon selecting "Yeah, why not?")
Biggs: Oh!! That's more like it!! Even if you were with SOLDIER, you're still a rookie here. So you'd better listen to whatever I tell ya!

(Upon talking to Biggs again.)
Biggs: Hic...!!
Oh...... Don't tell Barret what I jus said.

(Upon talking to Wedge again.)
Wedge: Oh, Cloud! Tifa really knows how to cook. Mmm, mmm...... Anyway, let me tell you somethin'

(Upon selecting "About what?".)
Wedge: Tifa always lets me taste her cooking. And look at me now, I'm rolly-polly. Don't know whether I should be happy or sad. But it's the good food and drinks that make this shop famous.

(Upon selecting "I'm not interested in your stories".)
Wedge: Cloud...... ......forget it.

(Upon talking to Jessie.)
Jessie: Careless...... You're getting all excited. Wonder what for......?

(Upon talking to Marlene.)
Marlene: ............

(Upon talking to Tifa.)
Tifa: Sorry, Cloud. Marlene seems a little shy.

(Upon attempting to leave 7th Heaven.)
Marlene: Papa, welcome home!

(If Marlene was given flower.)
Barret: Yeah.

Barret: Huh? Where'd you get that flower?

Marlene: Cloud gave it to me.

Barret: Oh......

Barret: Did you thank him? ............

Marlene: Thank you, Cloud. We'll take care of you.

(Either after "We'll take care of you" if Marlene got flower, or "Papa, welcome home!" otherwise).
Tifa: You all right, Barret?

Barret: Great!!

Barret: Get in here, fools!! We're startin' the meetin'!!

(Upon approaching bar stools.)
Tifa: Sit down.

(Upon talking to Tifa if she hasn't offered a drink.) Tifa: Cloud... come over here.

Tifa: How about... ...something to drink?

(Upon selecting "I don't feel like it".)
Tifa: OHH!! I can make a drink just as good as anyone else. Everyone says, my drinks taste the best!

(Upon selecting "Give me something hard".)
Tifa: Just a minute. I'll make one for you.

Tifa: You know, I'm relieved you made it back safely.

Cloud: What's with you all of a sudden? That wasn't even a tough job.

Tifa: I guess not...
You were in SOLDIER.

Tifa: Make sure you get your pay from Barret.

Cloud: Don't worry. Once I get that money, I'm outta here.

(After either "Don't worry. Once I get that money, I'm outta here.", or "Everyone says, my drinks taste the best!" depending on dialogue choice.)
Tifa: Cloud. Are you feeling all right?

Cloud: ...yeah... Why?

Tifa: No reason. You just look a little tired I guess.

(Upon talking to Tifa if she hasn't offered a drink.) Tifa: Cloud... come over here.

(Upon talking to Tifa after all above dialogue.)
Tifa: You'd better go down below.

(Upon interacting with TV.)
President Shinra: the No.1 Reactor was bombed. The terrorist group AVALANCHE has claimed responsibility for the bombing. It is expected that AVALANCHE will continue its reign of terror. But citizens of Midgar, there is no need to fear. I have immediately mobilized SOLDIER to protect our citizenry against this senseless violence. Thank you and good night.

(Upon talking to Wedge.)
Wedge: You think I'm a little too uptight?

(Upon selecting "Yeah...")
Wedge: The next mission will be to blow up the Sector 5 Reactor. Cloud, you're great! Don't you ever get nervous? Or are you like, impervious to feelings? Naw, that couldn't be it.

(Upon selecting "No...")
Wedge: Well, that's ok. Don't worry about me. I don't look like it, but I'm a coward at heart.

(Upon talking to Jessie.)
Jessie: Oops... Hey, look at the news... What a blast. Think it was all because of my bomb? But all I really did was just make it like the computer told me. Oh no! I must've made a miscalculation somewhere.

(Upon talking to Jessie again.)
Jessie: Hey, that was my bomb's debut. Makes me kinda proud.

(Upon approaching Barret.)
Barret: Yo, Cloud! There's somethin' I wanna ask ya. Was there anyone from SOLDIER fighting us today?

Cloud: None. I'm positive.

Barret: You sound pretty sure.

Cloud: If there was anyone from SOLDIER you wouldn't be standing here now.

Barret: Don't go thinkin' you so bad jes cuz you was in SOLDIER.

Cloud: ............

Barret: Yeah, you're strong. Probably all them guys in SOLDIER are. But don't forget that your skinny ass's workin' for AVALANCHE now! Don't get no ideas 'bout hangin' on to Shinra.

Cloud: Stayin' with Shinra? You asked me a question and I answered it...that's all.

Cloud: I'm going upstairs. I want to talk about my money.

(Upon talking to Barret.)
Barret: Shucks!!

(Upon talking to Marlene.)
Marlene: Papa, you're so great!

(Upon returning to pinball machine.)
Tifa: Wait, Cloud!

Barret: Tifa! Let him go! Looks like he still misses the Shinra!

Cloud: Shut up! I don't care about either Shinra or SOLDIER! But don't get me wrong! I don't care about AVALANCHE or the Planet for that matter!

(Upon talking to Wedge.)
Wedge: .......Cloud. You say you don't care, but you came to talk to me. Cloud... You just want friends. Isn't that right?

(Upon selecting "Blow off".)
Wedge: Yeah, well. You look kind of lonely to me. If you ever got anything you want to get off your chest, you can always talk to me.

(Upon selecting "I really don't care".)
Wedge: You're terrible. Real cold blooded.

(Upon talking to Jessie.)
Jessie: Money... Oh my. It must have been for a lot of it. Sure! Well, what the hell? It's a verbal agreement. Now let me figure this out. Oh stop it, Cloud! Did you hear me?

(Upon talking to Tifa.)
Tifa: Straighten things up with everyone for me.

(Upon attempting to leave 7th Heaven.)
Tifa: Listen, Cloud. I'm asking you. Please join us.

Cloud: Sorry Tifa...

Tifa: The Planet is dying. Slowly but surely it's dying. Someone has to do something.

Cloud: So let Barret and his buddies do something about it. It's got nothin' to do with me.

Barret: You damn right we'll do something about it. N' you stay outta this Tifa!

Tifa: So! You're really leaving !?

Tifa: You're just going to walk right out ignoring your childhood friend !?

Cloud: What......?

(Upon selecting either "How can you say that!" or "......Sorry".)
Tifa: ......You forgot the promise, too.

Cloud: Promise?

Tifa: So you DID forget.

Tifa: Remember......Cloud. It was seven years ago...

(During flashback in Nibelheim.)
Tifa: Look, the well. Do you remember?

Cloud: Yeah...back then.

Cloud: I thought you would never come, and I was getting a little cold.

Tifa: Sorry I'm late.

Tifa: You said you wanted to talk to me about something?

Cloud: Come this spring...I'm leaving this town for Midgar.

Tifa: ...All boys are leaving our town.

Cloud: But I'm different from all of them. I'm not just going to find a job.

Cloud: I want to join SOLDIER.

Cloud: I'm going to be the best there is, just like Sephiroth!

Tifa: Sephiroth... The Great Sephiroth.

Tifa: Isn't it hard to join SOLDIER?

Cloud: ...I probably won't be able to come back to this town for a while.

Cloud: ...huh?

Tifa: Will you be in the newspapers if you do well?

Cloud: I'll try.

Tifa: Hey, why don't we make a promise?

Tifa: Umm, if you get really famous and I'm ever in a bind...... You come save me, all right?

Cloud: What?

Tifa: Whenever I'm in trouble, my hero will come and rescue me. I want to at least experience that once.

Cloud: What?

Cloud: Ha, ha, ha! What's that!

Tifa: You're laughing at me!

Tifa: Come on--! Promise me----!

Cloud: All right......I promise.

(After flashback is complete.)
Tifa: You remember now, don't you... our promise?

Cloud: I'm not a hero and I'm not famous. I can't keep......the promise.

Tifa: But you got your childhood dream, didn't you? You joined SOLDIER.

Tifa: So come on! You've got to keep your promise......

Barret: Wait a sec big-time SOLDIER!

Barret: A promise is a promise! Here!!

On-screen: Received Barret's stash, 1500 gil!

Cloud: This is my pay? Don't make me laugh.

Tifa: What? Then you'll...!!

Cloud: You got the next mission lined up? I'll do it for 3000.

Barret: What......!?

Tifa: It's ok, it's ok.

Tifa: psst, psst...... (We're really hurting for help, right?)

Barret: Uh......ugh...... (That money's for Marlene's schoolin'......)

Barret: 2000!

Tifa: Thanks, Cloud.

(The next day.)

(Upon talking to Tifa.)
Tifa: Good Morning! Cloud! Did you sleep well?

(Upon selecting "Barret's snoring kept me up......")
Tifa: psstpsst... (keep it down, they'll hear you. Barret's always edgy before an operation.)

(Upon selecting "Next to you, who wouldn't?".)
Tifa: I don't know what you mean.

(After either "Barret's always edgy before an operation." or "I don't know what you mean.")
Tifa: I'm going this time.

(Upon talking to Barret.)
Barret: Our target's the Sector 5 Reactor. Head for the station first. I'll fill you in on the train.

Barret: Yo! Cloud! Before the next mission, I got somethin' I wanna ask you! I, uh,...... I don't really know how to use Materia! I'll give you that Materia you found. Just teach me how to use it!

Cloud: ...sigh...

(Upon selecting "Ok, I'll explain it".)
Cloud: Sure, I'll explain how Materia works. First, access the menu. You know the basic functions. The triangle button brings up the menu. Directional buttons move the cursor, like this. Select each menu by using the OK button. If you want to leave the menu, just push the CANCEL button. See? Let's go ahead. Now you're in this menu. Select [Materia] sub menu. Select who you want to use it. Now look at my weapon here. Each weapon and armor has slots in it. Choose which slot you want to put Materia in. Now select the Materia you want to use. This is curative Materia. If you want to know what its effect is, line the cursor up with [Check], and push the OK button. It's just like selecting battle commands. Just line the cursor up to [Magic], you can see that the available magic has increased. Now you can use new magic [Cure]. And that's all there is to equipping Materia. See? It wasn't that tough! When you want to remove any Materia, it's as easy as pointing to the materia slot, and pushing the triangle button. There's just one thing you have to be careful of. Whenever you equip Materia, your situation changes. Parts of you may become stronger... while others get weaker. Normally, when you equip [Magic] Materia, your magic power will get stronger. But your physical strength weakens. So, Materia's kind of a double-edged sword. On the left side of the screen, you can see the Materia's effect on you. It's wise not to overuse Magic Materia. But try out various things. Push the CANCEL button to exit the sub menu. Ok, that's about it. I'll give you some advanced tips later.

Barret: Shi......! What's this 'It wasn't that tough!' crap! I'm clueless...... Well, you handle the Materia then!

(Upon selecting "You wouldn't understand".)
Barret: So this is what makes them guys in SOLDIER so great, huh!? Ok. I'll ask Jessie again later. But you're in charge of the Materia!

On-screen: [Materia System] Access the menu and select [Materia] to equip Materia.

(If the player has not yet talked to Tifa in the morning.)
Tifa: I'm going this time.

(If the player has already talked to Tifa, or after the previous line.)
Tifa: Cloud! I got a message from the Weapon Shop man upstairs. He has something he wants to give you. Don't forget!

Tifa: Marlene, you watch the store while we're gone!

Marlene: All right!! Good Luck.

(Upon talking to Marlene.)
Marlene: Take care!

Part 2

Part 3



(Upon selecting an item, or a chest, where XXXX is the name of the item.)
On-screen: Received "XXXX"!
(Two exceptions: "Ether" is referred to as "Tincture" when received at Fort Condor, and "Megalixir" is referred to as "Last Elixir" on Gaea's Cliff.)
