Ratchet finds Clank

(Nonverbal and unnamed cutscene.)

You're quite handy with your wrench...

Clank: Interesting.

Ratchet: (yells)

Clank: You're quite handy with your wrench.

Ratchet: You bet! I built that ship with it.

Clank: Hmmm... currently I am in search of someone who could be of assistance in saving the solar system. Do you know where I might find that fellow?

Ratchet: Well, he's on the radio every week. Other than that, no. Hey, what's with all this save the solar system stuff anyway?

Infobot - Drek's plan

Drek: Hello, citizens of-

On-screen (all caps): Novalis

Drek: My race, the blarg, have a small problem. Our planet has become so polluted, overpopulated, and poisonous, that we are no longer able to dwell here, but I, Chairman Drek, have a solution. We are constructing a pristine new world using the choices of planetary components available. So, what does this mean to you, you might ask? Using highly sophisticated technology, which you couldn't possibly understand, we will be extracting a large portion of your planet and adding it to our new one. Unfortunately, this change in mass will cause your planet to spin out of control and drift into the sun where it will explode into a flaming ball of gas, but, of course, sacrifices must be made. Thank you for your cooperation.

Director: Cut!

Drek: And if you don't like it, you can take your whiny, sniveling, snot nosed populations, form a line behind me and kiss my- We're still on? Well turn it off, you idiot!

The people on those planets are hosed!

Ratchet: The people on those planets are hosed! Well, good luck getting Captain Qwark to help you.

Clank: Actually, you could help me. If you could use your ship to take me to the coordinates contained in this infobot, I might be able to gather further information there.

Ratchet: Even if I wanted to, I can't! I'm missing a crucial component of the ship.

Clank: The Robotic Ignition System!

Ratchet: How did you know that?

Clank: I, sir, happen to be equipped with the latest in Robotic Ignition Systems. My programming allows me to start any ship I choose.

Ratchet: So, I agree to take you to this wherever it is, and you get my ship started for me?

Clank: That is what I'm proposing.

Ratchet: Deal!

This could be a problem

On-screen: Chairman Drek's flagship - Veldin Orbit.

Drek: This could be a problem. Take care of it.

Whoa! This is great!

Ratchet: Whoa, this is great!

Ratchet: So that's where I've been stuck this whole time!

Clank: Please return your appendages to the steering mechanism, sir.

Ratchet: Huh? Oh right, heh, sorry. Oh, and by the way, you can stop calling me "sir." The name's Ratchet.

Clank: Pleased to make your acquaintance, sir.

Ratchet: You got a name?

Clank: My serial number is B54296-

Ratchet: Oops! I'll just call you Clank for short. Hang on!

I will not stand for this!

On-screen: Back on Chairman Drek's flagship

Drek: So you see, it would be most beneficial if your citizens were not in the city when my workers begin removing it.

Mayor: Preposterous! I will not stand for this!

Drek: Unfortunately, you have no choice in the matter.

Mayor: Let's just see what Captain Qwark has to say about that, my good man!

Drek: (laughs)

Mayor: I don't see what's so funny. Captain Qwark could dispatch you without even breaking a sweat! You, you puny-

Drek: You have now officially worn out your welcome, and my patience!

Mayor This is your last chance! Stop this madness now!

Drek: Okay, wait... you're right, I will withdraw my troops!

Mayor: Really?

Drek: No! He's all yours, gentlemen! Try not to leave any marks!

On-screen: Entering atmosphere of Planet Novalis

Novalis

Sorry about that.

Ratchet: Oooomph!

Ratchet: Uhm... Clank... where are you?

Clank: I'm right here.

Ratchet: Oh, sorry about that.

Ratchet: Well, we're not leaving the way we came in.

Clank: Perhaps we could procure a ship from one of the inhabitants.

Ratchet: If there are any left.

What are you? Mercenaries? Torturers?

Mayor: Don't hurt me! Don't hurt me! What are you? Mercenaries? Torturers? Assassins? I'll tell you anything! Here, take my infobot, it's all I got left.

Clank: Sir, we're not assass-

Ratchet: Hold on, let's see what he's got.

Infobot - Ad for Al's Roboshack

Qwark: Has this ever happened to you?

Qwark: Hi, I'm Captain Qwark, and believe me, there's nothing worse than staring down a Blargian Snagglebeast — from the inside — and knowing your equipment isn't functioning properly! That's why I come to Al's Roboshack for all my electronic needs. Al has been the exclusive repair shop for my super electro gadgets since I was knee high to a sand mouse! If Al can't fix it, it's not broke, right Al?

Al: Er...

Qwark: You said it pal! So if you're fighting crime, or just fighting grime.. (chuckles) Come to Al's Roboshack in Metropolis for all your robotic repairs. Al's Roboshack, it's Qwarktastic!

Captain Qwark has really sold out.

Clank: Do you know what this means?

Ratchet: Yeah, Captain Qwark has really sold out.

Clank: No, it means Captain Qwark is on Metropolis! We could tell him about this invasion.

Ratchet: If we had a ship.

Mayor: Huh? Uh, a ship? You mean you're not gonna torture me? Well, as planetary chairman I could arrange for you to borrow our courier ship!

Ratchet: Cool!

Clank: You can count on us, sir.

Ratchet: Clank?

Clank: Yes?

Ratchet: Do you notice anything unusual about Captain Qwark?

Clank: Well I find the fact that he has a spring where his legs should be to be quite puzzling.

Ratchet: And why do you think that is?

Clank: Possibly an injury occurred while battling evil?

Listen up you lardballs!

Helga: Listen up, you lardballs! That was the most pathetic display I have ever seen on that obstacle course!

Ratchet: Whadaya mean?

Clank: We finished the circuit, ma'am.

Helga: Ya, but it was weak, weak, weak! When I was competing I would devour courses like that for breakfast!

Ratchet: Bet that's not all.

Helga: If it were up to me, you would drill, drill, drill for the rest of the day! But somehow you managed to impress that fool Captain Qwark!

Clank: Captain Qwark knows about us?

Helga: He certainly does. And worst of all, he wants me to give you a prize for that ridiculous performance!

Ratchet: Cool, what is it?

Helga: I'm supposed to give you a Swingshot, so you can sway to and fro like little insects!

Ratchet: Alright, let's see it.

Clank: I like him.

Al: So, now that we've cleared that up, what can I do for you?

Clank: Well, we saw your infobot announcement. You were with Captain Qwark. We're trying to find Captain Qwark. We thought you could help us.

Al: Your logic is commendable, however I haven't seen Captain Qwark since we shot that commercial. Say, do you run on standard XP-18 sisterboards?

Clank: Version 7.66.

Drek: I'm counting on you, lieutenant. And as your former commander can tell you, I don't take disappointment well.

Lieutenant: Yes sir! I won't fail!

That lieutenant doesn't seem so tough.

Clank: Drek is destroying yet another planet!

Ratchet: Yeah, but if that's the kind of help he's getting, I don't think we have anything to worry about.

Clank: You should not underestimate Chairman Drek. He is quite dangerous. We must find Captain Qwark!

Ratchet: Sure, we need to find Qwark. Although when we find him, wouldn't it be nice to tell him where Chairman Drek is?

Clank: I suppose.

Ratchet: Well, we go to the space station and talk to the scientists. They work for Drek, so they're bound to know where he is.

Clank: I am unsure about your logic.

Ratchet: Ah you think too much. Come on, let's go!

Clank: Ratchet, this is no time for you to become cautious! We have reached our goal!

Ratchet: I don't know. There's something fishy going on here.

Qwark: Listen to your little metal friend, Ratchet. Your destiny is mere steps away.

Ratchet: It's just something doesn't seem right.

Qwark: Why thank you Clank. You've been most helpful.

Get offa me you idiot!

Ratchet: Oof!

Ratchet: Get offa me, you idiot!

Qwark: (laughs) I love it when a plan comes together!

Clank: What do you mean?

Ratchet: What do you think he means, genius? He's not gonna help us, he's gonna kill us!

Qwark: You catch on quick. Although there is one problem with your hypothesis- I'm not going to kill you.

Ratchet: You're not?

Qwark: No. He is!

Clank: But, why?

Qwark: But, why? It's really not that difficult to decipher! I'm the official spokesman for Drek's new planet. I can't have you two getting in the way of my comeback!

Ratchet: This isn't over, Qwark!

Qwark: No, but it will be soon.

Find a new ship (Umbris) (gameplay)

Ratchet: Well right now the thing I wanna do is find Qwark!

Ratchet: How do you start this stupid thing?!

Drek: You thought! You thought! I do the thinking around here, you slug brained idiot! I simply needed you to eliminate those two nuisances before they could cause any real trouble!

Qwark: But I wanted to-

Drek: Do you still want to be the highly paid spokesman for my planet?

Qwark: Yeah...

Drek: Then the next time I send you to do a job, I want results! Now get out of my sight!

Infobot - Orxon history

Drek (narrating): Hello once again fellow blarg, I hope this message finds you well! As many of you know, our home planet is no longer habitable. We've abandoned our factories, our laboratories, and our happy lives because of the encroaching pollution- leaving much behind. Fortunately, the nearby planets will supply us with all we need to create our new home, which is nearing completion! Once our scientists locate the ideal orbit, our new world will be perfect! So reserve your space now, prime locations are filling up fast. Good day!

Ratchet: Yeah, well I got bigger fish to fry.

Clank: Bigger than the galaxy?

Ratchet: Well, different fish anyway. Look, didn't that commando guy said we could get into that compound?

Ratchet: Is that all you can think about, Drek this and Drek that? I got my own problems!

Clank: If you cannot see the importance of this situation, you do have problems.

Ratchet: I'm a pretty good shot!

Plumber: You? No, I'm gonna lose my job.

Ratchet: Oh c'mon! What's the sense of keeping up a turret if no one's gonna use it? Besides, the blarg chased you off the last planet. Why don't we pay 'em back?

Infobot - Planetbuster plans

Drek: Hello again everyone, Supreme Executive Chairman Drek here to fill you in on our progress. We have now found the perfect orbit for our planet, one which will allow for the optimum temperature, all year round! However, there is a planet now occupying that orbit, and sadly for its few insignificant inhabitants, it must be destroyed. That's why we've created this — the Planetbuster Maximus, a device capable of blowing an entire planet into sub-atomic particles! We're quite proud of it! Here's how it works. We attach the Planetbuster to this ship, fly it into orbit around the planet, and let it go! Kaboom! Heheh, quite ingenious really. Once our trained professionals put the finishing touches on our new planet, everything will be complete! Thank you! Goodbye!
