Mission 3: Campbell

Mission 3: Campbell
Act 1

A BMP3 tank is passing within a forest.

Campbell:
"Cortez, do you think this is alright?"

Cortez:
"Nothing to worry about, Campbell. I know where they'll attack.
Leave everything to Sgt. Major Riley Martinez. He's an expert on these kind of bombardments."

Riley:
"Relax! This 100milli gun can blow anything."

Campbell:
"Seems reliable."

Riley:
"Just reliable? How do you like riding the BMP3?"

Campbell:
"It's excellent! But it feels like my butt might be teared with the friction."

Riley:
"Just endure it a bit longer, we're passing the valley.
After that, we'll arrive at the front base of the Esterian Army's Special Forces."

Campbell:
"Why don't you get American-made equipment instead?
The M2 Bradley has a thicker armor and is completely armed. Not to mention, it doesn't hurt my butt."

Cortez:
"We don't need White House's aid. We can fend for ourselves."

Campbell:
"Are you still bothered about that?"

Cortez:
"What do you mean?"

Campbell:
"Don't pretend! Why don't you call me on a first-name basis like old times?"

Cortez:
"I'm the Commander of the Estarian Army's Special Forces now. We can't go back in time now..."

Campbell:
"But it's been ten years!"

Cortez:
"I'm not at FOXHOUND anymore..."


The BMP3 is suddenly bombarded by someone.

Campbell:
"What the..."

Cortez:
"What's the situation?"

Soldier #1 (V.O):
"The first car came in contact with a landmine. The caterpillar is cut!"

A rampage of bullets flies toward their direction.

Riley:
"Colonel! Attack coming at 4 'o clock."

Campbell:
"An ambush?"

Cortez:
"Nothing to worry... We'll just thwart them off.
Riley!! Greet them with your 100milli gun."

Riley:
"Roger! I'll let them eat lead!"

Cortez takes the wireless radio.

Cortez (v.o):
"Other cars proceed!"

Soldier #1:
"Car #1 is proceeding"

Soldier #2:
"Car #3 is proceeding"

Bullets are bursting from the 100milli gun.

Riley:
"Confirming enemy retreat!"

Cortez:
"You did it, Riley! That'll shut them up!"

Campbell:
"I don't think so..."

Cortez:
""Why?"

Campbell:
"It's really hard to fend enemies like that with a mere rifle.
Cortez. I think that was just a bait, be careful.

Cortez:
"You might be right."

Cortez reaches for the wireless radio again.

Cortez:
"Everyone, let's form a defense formation! We've confirmed some damage..."

A missile's impact can be heard.

Riley:
"Colonel. They took out the first car"

Several more missiles are heard.

Riley:
"The third car...it's completely surrounded."

Campbell:
"What the..? It's a Russian-style ambush... They're striking back and forth and cutting our escape route...
It's a technique they developed during the Afghanistan conflict. It's no good... At this rate, we'll die like dogs..."

Cortez:
"What are you doing? Are you insane, Campbell? Close the hatch!"

Campbell:
"The armor is falling apart. Do you wish to die?"

Cortez:
"Dammit! Riley, let's retreat, quickly!"

The BMP3 squad is completely destroyed.

Elsewhere.

Meryl:
"The Data Processing Analysis Center. This must be it, Snake. Hurry!"

Snake:
"Meryl...You're strangely enthusiastic about this."

Meryl:
"Isn't it natural? You and Mei-Ling just went out without even telling me."

Snake:
"Colonel's instructions."

Meryl:
"And why wasn't I invited?"

Snake:
"You got shot in the leg, didn't you? How was hospital life by the way?"

Meryl:
"That was..."

Snake:
"Here's the entrance."

The two enter the room by using the operating panel next to the door.

Meryl:
"This is the Data Processing Analysis Center?"

Mei Ling:
"Land...Sea...Air...and then there's the Marine Corps.
Every special forces activity are monitored here, Ms. Meryl Silverburgh."

Meryl:
"Mei Ling?"

Mei Ling:
"What can I do for you?"

Meryl:
"Ah, no...Nothing at all."

Mei Ling:
"Meryl? Is your foot feeling any better?"

Meryl:
"Uhh? Yes...Thanks for your concern."

Snake:
"So...what's our business, Mei Ling?"

Mei Ling:
"Alright. The truth is that I needed to show you something. Come here."

Snake and Meryl stand alongside Mei Ling.

Meryl:
"Wait a minute... She acts way too friendly with him
What's with the 'come here' business?"

Snake:
"What's with all the grumbling?"

Meryl:
"It..It's nothing."

Mei Ling taps unto the keyboard on the computer.

Mei Ling:
"We've been receiving nanomachine signals transmitted from Colonel Campbell six hours ago.
Then two hours later...and the two hours after that...The signal ceased to appear..."

Snake:
"It's definitely not there now..."

Meryl:
"It's way too early for the batteries to run out like that..."

Snake:
"Why were you tracking down the Colonel?
It's a violation of service regulations to capture nanomachine's signals unrelated to combat."

Mei Ling:
"It was a request by the Colonel himself...
He told to keep track of his position without the Information Bureau's knowledge."

Snake:
"Bureau? The same one with Brigadier General Schultz?"

Mei Ling:
"Major General Schultz now...He got promoted."

Snake:
"So White House was moved by the guy who made the Cruise Missile ram down and decided to promoted him.
What a joke!"

Mei Ling:
"And 34 innocent lives were taken because of him."

Snake:
"Mei Ling..."

Mei Ling:
"I'm sorry... Just forget it!"

Meryl:
"Excuse me. What are you two talking about?"

Snake:
"It's really nothing.
But why did the Colonel made such a request?"

Mei Ling:
"You heard the saying 'don't fear the 10,000 odds, just the one in 10,000'?"

Meryl:
"What does that mean?"

Mei Ling:
"It means that the kind of situations to fear are not ones that happened 10,000 times, but the ones that happens once.
And that's when you have more cautious than cautious."

Meryl:
"And my uncle? Where was he?"

Mei Ling:
"The Republic of Esteria."

Snake:
"Esteria...That's in South American, isn't it?
Alright! I think Schultz owes us an explenation."

Meryl:
"Who is he?"

Mei Ling:
"The head of the information bureau. A guy who cares about nothing but where he sits."

Meryl:
"The lowest of the lows...We can't help it, guess we have to meet up with him."

Mei Ling:
"I wouldn't do that..."

Meryl:
"What the hell are you saying?
Aren't you worry about the Colonel too?"

Snake:
"Let's go."

Meryl:
"But, Snake! Isn't Mei Ling supposed to be your friend...
H-hey,l-let me go. You're hurting me."

Snake:
"It's alright, let's go."

Mei Ling:
"...I'm sorry."
Mission 3: Campbell
Act 2

Schultz:
"What? Campbell is missing? What's the situation...?"

A large knock comes from Schultz's door.

Schultz:
"It seems someone's at the door. Search for his whereabouts and we'll talk later."

Schultz hangs up the phone.

Schultz:
"Come in!"

Snake opens the door abruptly.

Schultz:
"Who the hell are you two?"

Snake:
"Schultz! We demand to know what happened to Colonel Campbell!"

Schultz:
"How rude! This is no way to treat your superiors!!"

Meryl:
"Oh shut up! I'll ask again: Where's Colonel Campbell?"

Schultz:
"Him? You must be with FOXHOUND then."

Meryl:
"So what?"

Schultz:
"Campbell is on a very confidential mission at the moment.
Not even FOXHOUND has authorization for the details!"

Snake:
"Am I wrong to say that he's missing? Nobody likes a liar."

Schultz:
"Get out of here!"

Meryl:
"He knows something!"

Snake:
"Remember who was responsible for your promotion!
It was Mei Ling and the Colonel!"

Schultz:
"How did you..?
I see...No need to talk any further...Read this!"

Meryl:
"What's this? Classified Operation Instructions"
"Sent Colonel Roy Campbell to the Republic of Esteria to
complete the alliance between the U.S. SOCOM and the Esterian Army."
"Look Snake! See this mark..."

Snake:
"This is..."

Schultz:
"That's right! These are private orders straight from the White House."

Snake:
"But why the Colonel?"

Schultz:
"I wouldn't know about that."

Meryl:
"There's more, the basic duty on the second page.
'Place the Esteria Army's Special Forces into intense training.
Afterwards, locate anti-government guerilla activity...'
But why participate in such a simple mission."

Snake:
"There's something else on the back."

A security team rushes into the room.

Soldier #1:
"Freeze!"

Soldier #2:
"General! Are you alright?"

Schultz:
"Fool! Didn't you consider there might had been a silent alarm button.
Take them to the holding cells! And keep a cool head with these two!"

Snake and Meryl are confined in the cells.

Meryl:
"Let us go!!"

Snake:
"It's no use."

Meryl:
"We're only here because of my uncle!!"

Snake:
"The door is a compound alloy and the lock is a combination of ID Card and password number.
Our weapons had been taken away. There's no way out!"

Meryl:
"But..."

Snake:
"We must keep our cool in the battlefield. The hot-headed ones are the first to die."

Meryl:
"How can you be so calm? This isn't even a battlefield at all."

The sound of an opening door is heard from a distance.

Meryl:
"Someone's coming..."

The footsteps of high-heels can be heard.

Mei Ling:
"Are you alright, Snake?"

Snake:
"That voice..."

Mei Ling:
"I'm getting you out now."

Snake:
"Huh...Mei Ling...Why did you come here?"

Mei Ling:
"When drinking water, never forget who dug the well.
I'm releasing the lock."

Snake leaves his cell after Mei Ling unlocks it.

Snake:
"Thanks Mei Ling! But why are you here again?"

Mei Ling:
"Schultz asked me to."

Snake:
"Schultz? He's the one who confined me here in the first place."

Mei Ling:
"Is that so...
He told me he wanted to express his gratitude to us for giving the info that made his promotion possible.
So he asked me to release you."

Snake:
"Did you had to bow your head to him? I thought you hated him."

Mei Ling:
"Didn't had much of a choice."

Meryl:
"When you two are done talking, maybe you can release me too."

Mei Ling:
"Oh, sorry."

Mei Ling unlocks Meryl's cell, releasing her too.

Meryl:
"Thank you, Mei Ling."

Snake:
"Why the bitterness?"

Meryl:
"I'm completely clueless here...No one has told me the history
you guys had with Schultz."

Mei Ling:
"He's..."

Snake:
"Do you remember the military retaliation against the Sanchago Republic?
They struck a chemical plant with a cruise missile?"

Meryl:
"That's the mission you two went without me, right?"

Snake:
"Correct. We went there to pinpoint the location of a chemical plant discoverd by Mei Ling."

Meryl:
"I see..."

Snake:
"Mei Ling was desperate to stop the production of the chemical weapons."

Mei Ling:
"Snake...That's enough..."

Snake:
"She was desperate to save the lives of many people...
But, the cruise missile was launched anyway...and a stream of blood was shed."

Meryl:
"But that's..."

Snake:
"For the White House, it was enough to consider a full military punishment...
34 people were killed as a result, all because of the information we got for Schultz."

Meryl:
"In other words...Schultz got promoted because of the info he got from Mei Ling?"

Snake:
"That's right."

Mei Ling:
"And yet...Only the Colonel and you, Snake...
you were the ones who believed in me in the first place."

Meryl:
"Mei Ling, you..."

Mei Ling:
"We got to go now! We need to be at Halbert Airport!"

Snake:
"What did you say?"

Mei Ling:
"Halbert Airport. Hurry! I'll explain it later."

At Halbert Airport

Snake:
"This is... An MC-130 Combat Talon..."

Meryl:
"What exactly is it?"

Mei Ling:
"A state-of-the-arts machine for electronic warfare, we can use it to track the Colonel.
It can detect nanomachine signals and voices for communication devices."

Snake:
"What the...You mean we're going to Esteria with this?"

Mei Ling:
"All of the neccesary equipment has already been loaded. All it needs now are the passengers."

The plane takes off with the three.

Meryl:
"Mei Ling. Where's my Desert Eagle?"

Mei Ling:
"It's inside a black attache case prepared for you."

Meryl:
"This one?"

Mei Ling:
"Not that one. Please stop messing with the luggage there...
Just leave it alone for now, Meryl."

Snake:
"Mei Ling? Can you explain to me one thing?"

Mei Ling:
"Huh..."

Snake:
"Schultz isn't the kind of person to just let us get away without a reason."

Mei Ling:
"I'm sorry, but..."

Schultz's voice is heard from the transmitter.

Schultz (v.o):
"Do you copy, Solid Snake?"

Snake:
"Who?"

Schultz (v.o):
"Do you copy? It's me. General Schultz."

Snake:
"What's the meaning of this?"

Schultz (v.o):
"You have been assigned for a search mission to find Colonel Campbell."

Snake:
"I thought you let us out of the cell by gratitude."

Schultz (v.o):
"I didn't seriously wanted you to be in the cells, since someone needs to be looking for Campbell.
As head of the US SOCOM's intelligence bureau, I've given you that obligation.
Mei Ling will give you the details."

Snake:
"Mei Ling...you..."

Mei Ling:
"Believe me, Snake! I had no other choice."
Mission 3: Campbell
Act 3

Snake:
"But why? Mei Ling?"

Mei Ling:
"I had no choice!"

Meryl:
"You backstabber!"

Mei Ling:
"I'm sorry, Meryl!"

Schultz (v.o):
"Do you copy? Your mission is to search for Campbell.
You wanted to know what happened to him, right? Then you'll know by doing this favor."

Snake:
"You're a scoundrel!"

Schultz (v.o):
"I'm used to being loathed. Words means nothing."

Snake:
"What a serviceman you are!"

Schultz (v.o):
"You'll meet up with Colonel Mark Cortez after you arrive!"

Snake:
"Mark Cortez?"

Schultz (v.o):
"He's one of you!"

Snake:
"One of us?"

Schultz (v.o):
"That's right. He used to be in FOXHOUND."

Meryl:
"Cortez? I heard about him from the Colonel...
His codename was Falcon, an expert in psychological warfare."

Snake:
"Falcon is the codename given to members that has been involved in missions for more than 10,000 hours.
Moreover, they're limited to single operations of local procurement."

Schultz (v.o):
"Are you done with the chattering? If you need info about Campbell, get in touch with Cortez!
Understood?"

Snake:
"I'm doing this for Campbell, not you! Don't forget that!"

Schultz (v.o):
"No need to bluff. You want to get off the plane now?
You don't have much of a choice. I'll leave Mei Ling to explain the rest."

Mei Ling:
Uh, yes."

Schultz' transmission is cut off.

Meryl:
"You deceived us, Mei Ling."

Mei Ling:
"It's not what you think...I'm also concerned for the Colonel..."

Meryl:
"You're wagging your tail to them."

Snake:
"That's enough, Meryl!"

Meryl:
"What do you mean? Don't just treat her like a kid!"

"Snake:
"Calm down! Without Mei Ling, we might had still be in our cells."

Meryl:
"I know that, but she was following orders from the Information Bureau..."

Mei Ling:
"No, I'm not following anyone's orders."

Meryl:
"Huh?"

Mei Ling:
"Just trust me, leave this area to me.

Snake:
"Really?"

Mei Ling:
"If they don't receive messages, they will think the communicator is disrupted or the signal is jammed."

Snake:
"Hmm, that's an action movie cliche. They won't buy it."

Mei Ling:
"I thought it was good..."

Snake:
"You'll be disobeying orders,
your beloved information bureau won't tolerate that and you might not get a chance to fly the sky."

Mei Ling:
"I...The Colonel is in trouble...and so are you and Meryl...
I decided not to be an obedient kid anymore!!"

Meryl:
"Mei Ling..."

The plane arrives to its destination. Snake and Meryl leaves.

Snake:
"They're not here? Must be the weather... It's raining a lot..."

Meryl:
"And Mei Ling?"

Snake:
"She's staying in the plane, setting up our electronic equipment."

Meryl:
"Was I too rough on her?"

Snake:
"Don't worry about it, she understands."

Meryl:
"Is she coming with us?"

Snake:
"No. She'll be staying here, doing her job."

Meryl:
"So...Can you tell me about it?"

Snake:
"What?"

Meryl:
"What do you mean 'what'? About Sanchago...Aren't you being a bit too gentle with her?"

Snake:
"What would you do?"

Meryl:
"Huh?"

Snake tries to lit his cigarette.
Snake:
"If you discover an enemy, what would yo do? He's 3m away.
And your opponent is a child who stills dribble his nose."

Meryl:
"I'll shoot him. I've been trained to neutralize the enemy,
even if he's still a kid."

Snake:
"Heh. That's the difference between us and Mei Ling.
She wouldn't. She doesn't see the need to spill blood."

Meryl:
"I knew it... Are you and Mei Ling..."

Snake:
"Poof. Don't misunderstand me. She wouldn't live in a world like ours.
This conversation is over, looks like someone is coming."

Meryl:
"It looks like a Tank...
A Russian-made BMP3, if not a M2 Bradley.

A man comes out from the BMP3.

Cortez:
"You must be Solid Snake. Sorry for the delay."

Snake:
"Colonel Mark Cortez I presumed?"

Cortez:
"The one and only."

Meryl:
"You're... Falcon?

Cortez:
"It's been ten years since I was addressed by that handle. How do you know that?"

Meryl:
"Meryl Silverburgh sir! I'm with FOXHOUND."

Cortez:
"Heh-heh...Such a nostalgic word.
But they were different in my days...They wouldn't had allowed women to enlist."

Meryl:
"What!?"

Cortez:
"Angry already?
Such a hot-headed character for the battlefield, you won't last long."

Meryl:
"..."

Snake:
"What's wrong with your foot? It's heavily bandaged."

Cortez:
"This?"
He sighs deeply.
"I tried desperately to save Campbell, but despite that...I'm sorry..."

Snake:
"That can't be!"

Meryl:
"You're lying!"

Cortez:
"The Guerilla's resistance was too strong...
My force was completely annihilated as well..."

Meryl:
"So, you say that you turned tail and fled?"

Meryl grabs Cortez by the collar.

Snake:
"Let him go!"

Cortez:
"It wasn't just Campbell! Don't forget I lost my men too."

Meryl:
"Huh..."

Meryl lets go of Cortez

Meryl:
"I'm sorry..."

Cortez:
"Don't worry. There's nothing I could have done even if you blame me.
I'm a loser who couldn't have saved anyone."

Snake:
"Damn!"

Cortez:
"They're being trained by some Russian named Sergei Ivanovich."

Snake:
"Sergei Ivanovich? Is he with Spetsnaz?

Cortez:
"SVR."

Snake:
"SVR?"

Cortez:
"The Russian Foreign Intelligence Service. It's a recent agency,
established after the collapse of the KGB."

Meryl:
"I heard about them. They're a special forces unit almost as
good as FOXHOUND."

Cortez:
"Ivanovich is a member of Beta Group, which operates exclusively in foreign soils.
He is talented in psychological warfare. Take a look what's inside this envelope."

Snake:
"What the hell!?"

Meryl:
"I see it too..."

Snake:
"Don't! You shouldn't see any further.

Meryl:
"This is somebody's finger!"

Cortez:
"It came with dog tags...Sgt. Major Riley Martinez...He was protecting me and Campbell...
It's a finger from one of my men. This a Russian-style... I mean Ivanovich's method..."

Meryl:
"How Cruel! Campbell must be..."

Snake:
"We still have hope!!"

Meryl:
"But, without his nanomachine signals, we don't know
if he's alive or dead."


Mei Ling:
"Snake, it's an emergency!"
When foot is stepped here, then the hand won't know a myriad about here"

Snake:
"This ain't no time for proverbs!!"

Mei Ling:
"I'm sorry, but I got caught up with the moment!
Snake, you won't believe it!"

Snake:
"Tell me!"

Mei Ling:
"We got a signal!"

Meryl:
"No way!"

Mei Ling:
"That's right! From Campbell's nanomachines!
He's still alive!"
Mission 3: Campbell
Act 4

Campbell:
"huf...huf...guh..."

Ivanovich:
"When this knife is at 25 degrees, one of third of the tip becomes rough
and the remainer is sharply polished... This is how a combat knife is sharpened!"

Campbell:
"haf...haf...haf"

Ivanovich:
"Didn't understand? It's so sharp, it can cut meats and bones with a single stroke.
Hiyaa!"

Campbell is still inhaling deeply, while Ivanovich is laughing.

Ivanovich:
"Let's right to the subject, Colonel Campbell!"

Campbell:
"My name is Roy Campbell...
My ID number is 621-49-5671...My rank is Colonel...I was born in..."

Ivanovich:
"You still intend to resist me? Hi-yaa!"

Ivanovich hits Campbell. Campbell groans while Ivanovich laughs again.

Campbell:
"If you're gonna interrogate, why not a bit of a self-introduction?"

Ivanovich:
"Self-introduction? How rude of me.
I'm Sergei Ivanovich. SVR Beta Group operative. My rank is Lieutenant.
Is that good enough for you?"

Campbell:
"Umm. So you're a Russian dog then!?"

Ivanovich:
"You're looking a bit pale...I wonder how long will you resist until they arrive!?"

Campbell:
"Huf...Guh...What do you mean?"

Ivanovich:
"You don't know? Then you'll be happy to hear."

Campbell:
"Huf...Know what?"

Ivanovich:
"Heh! You still don't understand! Why are you here?"

Campbell:
"Haf...haf...When...?"

Ivanovich:
"Tell me once again. Cortez? Where is he?
Isn't he the Commander of the Estarian Army Special Forces?
Do you think I would overlook such an important individual?"

Campbell:
"You're going to kill him?"

Ivanovich:
"Such a pitiful man! I'll teach him.
Everything was planned to lure him and you into a trap.
That's why I've captured you!"

Campbell:
"No...Mark is...I can't believe it...
He's my friend! This isn't supposed to happen!"

Ivanovich laughs and shrieks again.

Ivanovich:
"How long will it take to believe? I feel sorry for you!!
Heh...You'll understand once it happens! Ha ha ha!
But first, let us continue!"

Campbell:
"...What are you gonna do?"

Ivanovich:
"Questioning! I know the White House sent you.
Tell me the real reason you're here!
I won't use the knife for now...Want some fun?
Can you see this thing? It's a sandbag?
You'll wish you were dead when I'm done."

Ivanovich tries to put the sandbag on Campbell. He struggles.

Campbell:
"Stop it!"

Ivanovich:
"Ha ha ha! What's wrong? Afraid of the dark?"

Campbell:
"Uhh. I already had a good sleep."

Ivanovich:
"Hyo ho ho! So stubborn! In that case, how about this!"

Ivanovich forcefully puts the sandband Campbell. Campbell coughs.

Ivanovich:
"How about it? How do you feel not knowing where you'll be attacked?"

Campbell:
"Whoa..."

Ivanovich:
"Uncomfortable? I'm hunt for even more fear.
Yell and scream!!"

Ivanovich laughs some more. Campbell inhales a bit more.

Ivanovich:
"What happened to Ocelot was unforgiveable. He and I go way back!"

Campbell:
"Ocelot! You mean!"

Ivanovich:
"That's right! Revolver Ocelot from FOXHOUND.
A formidable gunfighter, but more importantly
a first-class torture specialist!"

Campbell:
"Uhh...Gah..."

Ivanovich:
"He must be bitter that he won't get a chance to torture."

Campbell:
"He's still alive..."

Ivanovich:
"My methods differs from Ocelot's!! Huh-huh-huh.
Darkness is the greatest kind of fear!!
We'll have plenty of time, I'll get to enjoy it!!"

Elsewhere. The sounds of a helicopter's rotor blade can be heard.

Esterian Soldier A:
"Reload your weapons!"
Esterian Soldier B:
"Medical Oderly to Helicopter No.3!"
Esterian Soldier C:
"Board a communication soldier to Helicopter No.1! "Don't make mistakes!"

Cortez:
"Our strategy is a followed: First, Green Team will secure the sky.
The sniper will exclude the watchtower. Then, Green and Yellow will
make a landing on the north side of the hill...Finally, we
retrieve Campbell and escape."

Snake:
"Isn't this plan a bit rough?"

Cortez:
"Are you worried?"

Meryl:
"Timing is everything in assault operations.
If we fail the landing, it would jeopardize the Colonel."

Cortez:
"Meryl. Understand that this is an operation of the Estarian Special Forces Unit,
not FOXHOUND. Is that clear? There's nothing to worry, here's a photo of the hideout. The
Watchtower and the Anti-Aircraft ground, we've analyzed the building's entire position."

Snake:
"Understood, we'll follow your lead! Which helicopter do we board on?"

Cortez:
"I'm afraid none."

Meryl:
"What!"

Snake:
"We came here to look for the Colonel! We have the authority to do so!"

Cortez:
"And I have authority to stop you! It's too dangerous, you won't do any good."

Meryl:
"Then we go without you in that case!"

Snake:
"You used to be with FOXHOUND...Please understand."

Cortez:
"Are you regretting this?"

Snake:
"For the Colonel? I do."

Meryl:
"We can't just leave him behind!"

Cortez:
"I see..."

Snake:
"I would appreciate, Colonel Cortez!"

Cortez:
"One thing first, don't get involved in direct combat!
Please make a written oath to make sure."

Meryl:
"A written oath?"

Cortez:
"It's a sign that you stay true to your duty even when killed.
If you take this excessive task, then I'll accompany you!"

Snake:
"We have no choice but to cooperate!"

Cortez:
"Write your oath in the plane! Understood?"

Cortez grabs the communicator.

Cortez:
"Initiate all engines!"

The engine is iniated.

Snake:
"Mei Ling, you stay here!"

Mei Ling:
"Why just me? That's unfair!"

Snake:
"You're our intelligence expert! We need you to understand all the electronic
equipment, so stand by the Combat Talon!"

Mei Ling:
"Snake..."

Meryl:
"It's alright, Mei Ling. If Snake gets in trouble, then count on me."

Mei Ling:
"That worries me even more..."

Meryl:
"Did you say something?"

Mei Ling:
"It was nothing! Just take care Meryl!"

Cortez:
"Why shouldn't Mei Ling come with us?"

Mei Ling:
"'When one is just brains, brains won't do good.'
A person like that won't do you any good, Colonel Cortez."

Cortez:
"That's a difficult message to convey."

Mei Ling:
"I'll go back to the transport aircraft and provide backup for Snake
using the electronic equipment."

Cortez:
I see...Understood."

A helicopter takes off. Back at Ivanovich's hideout.

Cortez (v.o):
"Sergei! Do you copy?"

Ivanovich:
"Ah, Cortez! Loud and Clear!"

Cortez (v.o):
"Did you let Campbell out of the confinement room?"
His nanomachine signals are coming through."

Ivanovich:
"A trap, for catching the entire herd of FOXHOUND!"

Cortez:
"I'm not joking around, you're not following orders!
Don't do anything further and wait for my instructions!"

Ivanovich:
"Understood!"

Hangs up the communicator.

Cortez:
"What a nuisance!"

Ivanovich goes to where Campbell is confined and splashes him with water.

Campbell:
"Oh!"

Ivanovich:
"You'll sleep when I allow it, Campbell!"

Campbell coughs.

Campbell:
"Is it lunchtime?"

Ivanovich:
"I've got good news!"

Campbell:
"Let me guess! The Soviet Union is back?"

Ivanovich:
"You sure don't shut up!"

Campbell:
"Thanks for the compliments!"

Ivanovich:
"Some guests will arrive!"

Campbell:
"Guests?"

Ivanovich:
"Snake and Meryl!"

Campbell:
"What the...?"

Ivanovich:
"Relax! I'll make plenty of love with Meryl...
Right in front of you!"

Campbell:
"You maggot!"

Ivanovich laughs.

Ivanovich:
"Does it mortify you? Such a shame
you can't move your arms and legs."

Campbell:
"Go to hell!"

Ivanovich:
"We're already there, Colonel Campbell!"
Mission 3: Campbell
Act 5

Mei Ling:
"Is it possible to communicate with this...?
Snake? Do you copy? Please respond!"

Snake (v.o):
"Loud and clear."

Mei Ling:
"Take care."

Snake (v.o):
"Don't worry, leave the Colonel to us."

Mei Ling:
"Well don't get injured."

Meryl (v.o):
"Wait...Why all the attention to Snake? You're not gonna say anything to me?"

Mei Ling:
"No, I mean...I'm sorry, Meryl."

Meryl (v.o):
"But seriously...Snake's not alone here.

Mei Ling:
"It's just that I..."

Meryl (v.o):
"I'll take really good care of Snake."

Mei Ling:
"But..."

Meryl (v.o):
""Just kidding."

Mei Ling:
"Oh Meryl, you..."

Snake (v.o):
"When you two stop bickering... Mei Ling, we will report once we retrieve the Colonel.
Please prepare for a STAR (Surface to Air Recovery) when that happens."

Mei Ling:
"But what about the Anti-Aircraft system?"

Snake:
"In the case of an emergency, we'll lift the Colonel with
a balloon and you'll retrieve him with the Combat Talon.

Mei Ling:
"Understood...
Snake...What is it? Do you copy?"

The radio signal weakens

Snake (v.o):
"Do you copy...?...Ling...Mei Ling...The signal is..."

Mei Ling:
"What the...? Weird, a radio disturbance...? That means..."

Mei Ling stands up from her seat and enters a room with two Esterian soldiers.

Soldier #1:
"Ha ha ha!"

Soldier #2:
"What a guy!"

Soldier #1:
"Then I told him 'that's my gal, beat it!'"

Soldier #2:
"That was a bit rough."

Soldier #1:
"And that chick really dug me. She has some nice legs I can't even resist."

Mei Ling:
"Mei Ling here! Coming through!"

Soldier #1:
"Hey! Don't turn that off, Mei Ling!
Why did you...that was my favorite song!"

Mei Ling:
"'When one prepares for a long journey, then one must gather food supply for three months.'
It's a proverb which means that one must make the adequate preparations for something important."

Soldier #2:
"Are you right in the head?"

Soldier #1:
"Heh heh."

Mei Ling:
"Anyway, the rescue operation has already started, you better follow.
Here's the flight map."

Soldier #2:
"A rescue operation for Colonel Campbell was scheduled?"

Mei Ling:
"That's right. I'm asking you to fly around this airspace to prepare for a STAR.
We might have to retrieve the Colonel via a wire."

Soldier #1:
"Uh...Unfortunately we're of no use. We can't leave our posts"

Mei Ling:
"What do you mean?"

Soldier #2:
"We don't have permission to fly. We can't do it without
the guidance of the watchtower."

Mei Ling:
"What?"

Soldier #2:
"We were given official orders from the Commander of the Esterian Special Forces
to stay away from the battlefield."

Mei Ling:
"And who is this Commander?"

Soldier #2:
"Colonel Mark Cortez."

Mei Ling:
"That's a lie!"

The sound of a siren approaches.

Soldier #1:
"Huh? What's that?"

Soldier #2:
"A patrol car? It's coming here, it's taking the military track."

The patrol car arrives.

Soldier #1:
"What can we do?"

Army Intelligence Agent:
"I'm with Army Intelligence.
A Sgt. Riley Martinez was cooperating with us."

Mei Ling:
"Riley, that's...? What a time for a busy signal!!"

Elsewhere.

Snake:
"Mei Ling? Can you hear me? It's broken!?

Meryl:
"Snake, had you tried dialing the emergency frequency?"

Snake
"It's no use, the whole line is down."

Meryl:
"Weird...I wonder what happened?"

Cortez:
"What happened? You mean the communicator's broken?"

Snake:
"We can't contact Mei Ling."

Meryl:
"Maybe the transmission output is not enough."

Snake:
"I don't think so, the Combat Talon is installed with a state-of-the-arts
communication equipment, our transmissions should've been detected by it."

Cortez:
"The Combat Talon hasn't taken off."

Snake:
"What?"

Cortez:
"I told them not to."

Meryl:
"What's the meaning of this?"

Cortez:
"In a little you two, as well as Mei Ling, will do what we tell you.
You won't be leaving the airspace."

Snake:
"You were awfully calm, Cortez..."

Cortez:
"Don't move...Drop your weapons to the ground if you don't want to be shot!"

Snake:
"Point your gun to a comrade?"

Cortez:
"I should tell you, I'm not with FOXHOUND
and my comrades are here!!"

Elsewhere.

Campbell is gasping repeatedly.

Ivanovich:
"Be glad. Wait awhile and your friends will be here."

Campbell:
"...Why do you want to kill them?"

Ivanovich:
"No reason! I just like doing things like that."

Campbell:
"Huh...Then what's your goal?"

Ivanovich:
"Solid Snake, Meryl Silverburgh and you, Roy Campbell...
You're all nothing but nuisances for me to crush here.
I won't repeat the same mistake done with Shadow Moses Island."

Campbell:
"You were involved in that incident?"

Ivanovich:
"I'm not interested in Metal Gear, I'm a nuclear abolition idealist."

Campbell:
"How unusual for a terrorist..."

Ivanovich:
"Typical. There's a weapon that can put an end to all those nukes!"

Campbell:
"You don't mean a chemical weapon?"

Ivanovich:
Nope. There's not doubt that was a blunder for the Sanchago Republic
after being struck by that cruise missile."


Campbell:
"That only leaves...a biological weapon?"

Ivanovich:
"That's right...Mankind's oldest weapon of mass-destruction.
In Ancient Greek, some armies caused plagues by throwing the putrefied corpses of
dead men and animals to enemy camps. Biological weapons are older than most people think."

Campbell coughs

Campbell:
"Studying ancient history in this place...
To think they're using my pension to pay tuitions."

Ivanovich laughs.

Ivanovich:
"You still got your sense of humor. It's a viral weapon
that we can implant making good use of state-of-the-arts technology."

Campbell:
"It won't do you any good, there's no practical use for a viral weapon
and it's difficulty to produce one to begin with."

Ivanovich:
"As you said, it's difficult to manufacture a viral weapon and I'm studying hard
to overcome that, but the carrier is important too, especially a host who is immune
no matter how the virus is accumulated inside the virus."

Campbell:
"But...I already told you, there's no practical use.
When the virus is implanted to its host it will selfishly change its genetic structure.
There's no way to control it."

Ivanovich:
"Then how did you manage to complete that operation? Not without FOXDIE..."

Campbell:
"FOXDIE...? You mean gene manipulation?!"

Ivanovich:
"Like I said, it's a viral weapon we deploy by making good use of the latest technology.
You saw it in action in Shadow Moses!"

Campbell:
"How did you know?"

Ivanovich:
"Like I said, I'm an acquaintance of Revolver Ocelot.
To our regret, our lecture ends here."

The sound of a helicopter is heard.

Ivanovich:
"Did you hear that? It seems that Snake has arrived."

Campbell:
"You bastard!"

Ivanovich:
"Ha ha ha! Why are you angry, shouldn't you be welcoming your friends?"

Ivanovich continues laughing.
Mission 3: Campbell
Act 6

Meryl:
"This wall...it won't yield."

Campbell:
"It's no use, Meryl."

Meryl:
"Snake? This wall is made out of a special lead with an electro-magnetic shield pasted. It was when he was inside that my uncle's nanomachine signal dissappeared."

Snake:
"We can't get in touch with Mei Ling if we remained confined here."

Campbell:
"I'm sorry, Snake...They used me."

Meryl:
"You have nothing to apologize for, Uncle,
we were all tricked by Cortez!"

Snake:
"Colonel, was Cortez really a former FOXHOUND member?"

Campbell:
"Yes, he was discharged from FOXHOUND ten years ago,
just before you joined the unit."

Snake:
"What's his motives?"

Campbell:
"I don't know. However, I'm pretty sure he'sreceiving help from Russia."

The prison's door is opened as Cortez comes in.

Cortez:
"Looks like we meet again."

Campbell:
"Cortez..."

Snake:
"What the hell are you planning here?"

Cortez:
"I'm planning on building a new nation, an ideal nation untainted
by corrupt capitalists such as yours."

Snake:
"You're planning a coup d'Etat?"

Cortez:
"I prefer the term revolution!"

Meryl:
"Are you insane?"

Cortez:
"I was a loyal soldier to America, but they
turned their backs on me."

Campbell:
"Don't you think your resentment is misguided?"

Cortez:
"I'm not kidding! Remember that time ten years when my force was almost eliminated?"

Flashback to ten years in the past. Sounds of explosions and gunfire are heard.
Campbell and Cortez are in the middle of battle with an injured soldier named Jon.

Campbell:
"Hurry, we need a helicopter!"

Soldier (v.o):
"We can't retrieve anyone yet! You must fend for yourselves!!"

Campbell:
"Shit! Mark, they denied our request!"

Cortez:
"What the!?"

Jon mouns in pain.

Cortez:
"Don't move, Jon!"

Jon:
"I-is the chopper here yet?"

Cortez:
"Just a bit! Hang in there, let's go!"

Jon:
"Hah...hah...I...still...haven't paid my car loans...
My wife will be bitching at me..."

Cortez:
"Don't talk!"

Jon:
"Just leave me behind at the forest..."

Cortez:
"HEY! OPEN YOUR EYES! WAKE UP JON!"

Flashback ends.

Cortez:
"Jon...he ate that bullet in his belly...Jon was my..."

Campbell:
"Oh..."

Cortez:
"Jon's body was trembling...his mouth suddenly stopped moving..."

Campbell:
"Mark...Nobody is blaming you..."

Cortez:
"We were nothing but expendable pawns!!"

Campbell:
"We weren't...he died a soldier's death..."

Cortez:
"That's bullshit! Do you truly believe that kind of crap?!"

Meryl:
"Stop it! You can't blame Campbell!"

Snake:
"Meryl, I don't think we should intervene."

Meryl:
"But..."

Snake:
"Anyway...Why are you working with Ivanovich?"

Cortez:
"I was backstabbed by America, he was backstabbed by Russia. We suffered from similar circumstances and he shares my vision of constructing an ideal nation."

Campbell:
"Using biological weapons?!"

Cortez:
"Bio Weapons? Why are you accusing us with that?!
We are not murderers and we don't need a weapon indiscriminately kills the human race!"

Campbell:
"That's not what Sergei told me! You have a viral weapon stored here!"

Cortez:
"That's bullshit, I wouldn't approve such a thing."

Ivanovich:
"I'm afraid he's right. It's entirely my idea. I decided to exclude you fool off my plans."

Cortez:
"Sergei, you..."

Ivanovich:
"I merely pretended to go along with you,
but my true desire is to kill off all you FOXHOUND agents at once!"

Cortez:
"What the hell!"

Ivanovich:
"Starting with you, Cortez."

Ivanovich stabs Cortez, resulting in Cortez falling to the ground.

Cortez:
"Guaa!"

Campbell:
"Mark!"

Ivanovich laughs.

Ivanovich:
"I feel real pleasure using this combat knife to soundlessly
kill my enemies."

Campbell:
"Mark, pull yourself together! Mark!!"

Ivanovich:
"He's still alive, but he'll eventually lose consciousness
with all that blood lost."

Meryl:
"You heartless bastard..."

Ivanovich laughs

Ivanovich:
"I'll appreciate the compliment!
Now who should I kill next? How about you, Meryl!"

A special forces squad rushes to the hideout

Ivanovich:
"How did they?"

Mei Ling:
"Drop your weapons now!
This compound has been completely surrounded by the Esterian Special Forces!"

Snake:
"Mei Ling!"

Soldier #1:
Sergei Ivanovich! You're under arrest for suspicions of terrorism and
conspiracy of national rebellion!"

Soldier #2:
"Freeze! Throw away your knife!"

Ivanovich:
"Me, surrender?"

Ivanovich rushes toward the soldier with his knife. Ivanovich stabs the two soldiers.

Ivanovich:
"In close-quarters combat, nothing outclasses a knife.
As for your travelling...the thing I said to Meryl now applies to her!!"

Mei Ling:
"Stop!!"

Ivanovich:
"I'll get you! You, young girl, are also a hindrance to me!!"

Mei Ling shrieks.

Meryl:
"How dare you! Mei Ling is..."

Campbell:
"You Russian dog! Pick on someone your own size!"

Ivanovich:
"Are you so eager to die young? Then let me be of service!"

Meryl:
"Noooo!"

A gunshot is heard. Ivanovich has been shot by Cortez.

Ivanovich:
"...Cortez...You bastard..."

Cortez:
"Sergei...you forgot that a pistol is also effective in Close-Quarters..."

Sometime later.

Cortez:
"So...Sgt. Martinez was a spy for the Information Bureau...
How could...I've overlook that?"

Campbell:
"Mark, what were your plans for the revolution?"

Cortez:
"I never meant you any harm..I was merely planning to put you in house arrest for several days and then release you off afterwards...but Sergei's betrayal ruined that..."

Campbell:
"You don't need to tell me anymore..."

Cortez:
"It's raining again...Just like that time..."

Campbell:
"Don't speak..."

Cortez:
"I was very serious in establishing this revolution,
a nation that can't be influenced by the White House nor the Kremlin...
A country that people can placed their faith to..."

Campbell:
"Mark...that's why..."

Cortez:
"Why...do you still call me that?
As if we're still in FOXHOUND."

Campbell:
"Typical. You...You're my friend."

Cortez:
"Take care...Don't be a mere puppet of the White House."

Campbell:
"Mark..."

Cortez:
"You'll undertstand sooner or later... Believe me, Roy..."

Campbell:
"Mark...You're finally calling me Roy after ten years!"

Cortez:
"Heh-heh...You're a stubborn one...
I am...."

Campbell:
"Mark...Mark! Pull yourself together!"

Snake:
"Colonel...The medical orderly is here...
You should leave now..."

The orderly arrives.

Orderly:
"Casualties?"

Campbell:
"Please, go away..."

Orderly:
"This look awful...I should treat it immediately

Campbell:
"...There's no need to..."

Orderly:
"But..."

Snake:
"It's alright here, treat the others injured."

Orderly:
"Oh...I understand..."

The orderly leaves.

Snake:
"Will you be alright?

Campbell:
"Snake...Mark and I...can you take them with you for awhile?"

Snake:
"Sure thing."

Meryl:
"Mei Ling, let's go."

Mei Ling:
"Okay."

Snake:
"Colonel...As soon as it's possible, I'll help you to
make funeral arrangements for Cortez."

Meryl:
"I'll help too."

Mei Ling:
"And I as well...Colonel..."

Campbell:
"You..."

Snake:
"Cortez was with FOXHOUND like us.
Anyway, we can't do much until this weather clears up."

Campbell:
"I'm sorry."
