  • "Sarah Palmer. Commander Sarah Palmer. I lead all fireteams onboard Infinity." - Palmer reveals who she is to DeMarco.
  • "At ease, Spartans. Follow me, S-Deck is this way."
  • "Captain Lasky. You know I come here for my peace and quiet." - After Lasky asks if she's come to the bridge because she's bored.
  • "I'm not interrupting naptime, am I?"
  • "We've waited six months. We could spend another 48 hours running the teams through the War Games..." - When Lasky tells her they're about to be deployed.

The rest of you... You're due for an education." - Palmer briefing SPARTAN-IV soldiers about their deployment to Requiem.
  • "The eggheads upstairs wants to set up research bases. But before they can do that, we need to fend off some Covenant squatters. The Covies... they believe this is the home of one of their gods! Way I see it, if those freaks wanna meet God, it's our duty to help them along!" - Commander Palmer discussing the Covenant presence on Requiem.

Land Grab[edit]

  • "Spartan Sarah Palmer, Infinity Commander to all Navy, Army, and Marine forces, you can relax. The Spartans are here." - As the Pelicans carrying Fireteam Crimson arrive.
  • "Crimson, Commander Palmer. Your mission's not just about wreaking havoc, fun though that may be. Miller, light up the targets for Crimson."
  • "Those are power cores, intended for short-range wireless distribution. Destroy them or the Covies will build bases, and we'll have a hell of a time rooting them out."
  • "I don't need a second-by-second, Miller. Tell me once the other three are down." - After Jared Miller tells her Crimson has destroyed the first power core.

  • "Already? Everyone else is still hip deep in bad guys. Impressive work, Miller. Congratulate the team." - When Miller informs her that Crimson has killed all their attackers.

Sniper Alley[edit]

  • "Crimson, I'm moving you up to something a little tougher today..." - As Crimson is flown to Sniper Alley.
  • "Inserting you into a Covenant-held area that the Marines have been throwing themselves against to no avail. Short version of your to-do list: if it moves, shoot it."

  • "Hostiles inbound, Crimson. Give them a proper welcome, yeah?"
  • "Dalton, send Crimson supplies."
  • "Once again, Spartans do in 24 minutes what Marines can't do in 24 hours. Dalton, I need a decent-sized explosive launched from Infinity on Crimson's mark."

  • "Miller, light up the last few targets."
  • "Miller, paint a target on the generator for Spartan Dalton."
  • "Well done, everyone. Crimson, head to the extraction point and come on home."

The Challenge[edit]

  • "Spartans, you're being deployed to a pair of identical structures located north of primary operations. Here's a challenge for you: who can clear their base of Prometheans first?" - Palmer deploys Fireteams Crimson and Majestic.
  • "The respect of your peers, DeMarco. That should be an exciting new experience for you." - When DeMarco asks what they get if they win.
  • "About time! Good work, teams. Now then, let the games begin." - When Crimson destroys the signal jammers interfering with their comm signals.

  • "Haven't heard from you in a while, DeMarco."
  • "FYI. Crimson's gaining on you."
  • "Nicely done. Painting a waypoint for your third target." - After Crimson disables the second tower.
  • "Crimson's way ahead of you, DeMarco." - After Majestic disables their second tower.
  • "Crimson, there's your next target."
  • "Crimson, do something about those Watchers."
  • "Good show. Marking an evac location for you now." - After Crimson disables all the towers.

  • "Dalton. Crimson could use some new toys."
  • "Send Crimson some resupply, Dalton."
  • "Nice work down there, Crimson. Maybe next time, eh Majestic?" - As Crimson is flown away.

Sacred[edit]

  • "Crimson, good work showing Majestic Team how it's done. DeMarco'll be mad about that for days. I need a fireteam I can depend on, and until you prove otherwise, you're it.
  • "Infinity Science has identified a jungle structure they want to see up close. I want boots on the ground before the eggheads go poking at every shiny object they find."
  • "Looking all quiet, Crimson. I think you have the place to yourselves."
  • "Let's have a look." - When Miller reports a power fluctuation in the back of the facility.
  • "This is why I didn't let Science Team go in there alone. Pop 'em and move on." - When Crawlers attack Crimson.
  • "That's a star map. See if you can access the data."
  • "Crimson, heads up! Crawlers!"
  • "Okay, Crimson. This was only ever recon. I'm pulling you out until Science Team can review that data. Miller, mark the extraction point."
  • "Knights are nasty customers, but you can deal with them. Keep them front and center, and don't stop shooting until they pop." - When a Promethean Knight attacks the team.

  • "Find them a way out, Miller!" - After Miller tells her the building's layout has shifted.
  • "Make it quick!" - To Miller, telling to find Crimson an escape.
  • "Hold up, Crimson. That place still isn't safe for science-types. Clear the area of all hostiles so those eggheads don't get hurt."
  • "Pop those flyers quick, or they'll resurrect their buddies!" - When Watchers arrive.
  • "Everything's baby-proofed? Good stuff. Dalton. I need a ride for Crimson at their new extraction location."
  • "Nice work, Crimson. Miller, get that data over to Science Team and see what they can get from it. It better be something worthwhile."

Core[edit]

  • "Shut them down, Crimson." - As Crimson approaches the shield controls.
  • "Promethean Knights are working alongside Covenant? That's bad news. Get a look at what they were guarding."

  • "Defend the artifact, Crimson! Dalton! Crimson needs immediate evac!"
  • "Fireteam Castle, this is Commander Palmer! I need an ETA on clear skies!"

  • "Crimson Team scored the first grab. Whatever it is, it's got the eggheads all tingly." - Referring to the Forerunner artifact.
  • "The hell?"
  • "Roland, what is this damned thing?"
  • "Further attempts at... physical persuasion haven't had much effect. Damn thing's stuck fast." - When Dr. Glassman arrives to study it.
  • "She's all yours, doc."
  • "Tom!" - When Glassman starts pulling Lasky into the artifact, trying to save himself.

Clean Up[edit]

  • "Crimson, your job today is to dig out some nasty Covenant squatters. They've parked themselves in a hole with anti-air guns and are proving themselves to be quite a pain in the UNSC's ass. Hit 'em fast, hit 'em hard, don't leave anyone standing." - As Crimson is flown to The Gate.

  • "What the hell brought them down?" After anti-air guns shoot down Crimson's Pelican.

The VIP[edit]

  • "Crimson, we've got a line on Parg Vol, a Sangheili terrorist, and a known associate of Jul 'Mdama. My thinking is, if we can put Vol down like a sick dog, then the galaxy's a better place."

Random Transport[edit]

  • "Whoa. OK. Thanks, Roland. Bit of a jump there, Crimson." - After Roland pinpoints Crimson's IFF tags.
  • "Miller, what can we do to clear up the transmission?"
  • "Crimson, I don't know if you can hear me, but you're boxed in. Only way out is through the bad guys."
  • "Much better, Crimson. Miller, now that we can see straight, where's Jul 'Mdama?" - After Crimson activates a relay that clears their communications.
  • "Roland? Clear the channel."
  • "Hey! Protocols, Miller!" - When Miller gives Roland permission to give Crimson waypoints, without Palmer's approval.
  • "Drop pods, coming your way!"
  • "Which did Jul use?" - When Miller reports two portals have powered up.

  • "It's turned on. Where's the portal?"
  • "Drop pods, coming your way!"
  • "There's your doorway, Crimson. Get in there."
  • "Get moving, Crimson. We've got a hingehead to chase."

The Chase[edit]

  • "Extrapolate later. Give Miller their loc now. We've got an op to run."
  • "Miller, get me a marker on 'Mdama. I want to know about this Didact's Gift thing, and where he's got it."
  • "Roland, clear the line, please. Let the Spartans talk."
  • "Miller, find Crimson a way through those doors."
  • "What are you even doing?"
  • "Move it, Crimson! Do not let 'Mdama get away!"
  • "Dammit! Don't let them slow you down!" - When Promethean Watchers arrive and deploy turrets.
  • "I need some targeted air strikes, preferably that I can fire at will."
  • "Crimson, keep up pursuit. I'm going to encourage our hingehead to slow his pace a bit."
  • How the hell did he survive that? Slippery son of a-" - After Jul 'Mdama still appears on radar despite having been bombed by an airstrike.
  • "Knights! Take them down."
  • "Well done."
  • "In one piece?"
  • "Crimson, have a look." - After Miller reports that 'Mdama dropped something during his escape.
  • "Don't touch it!"
  • "Commander Palmer to Galileo Base."
  • "Crimson's bringing a package your way. Prep your labs. I want a good look at it before I let it onboard Infinity."

The Didact's Gift[edit]

  • "Excellent battle analysis, Miller. I'm making a note for your file." - After Miller states that Phantoms mean the Covenant are going to pour out of them.
  • "Wait a second. Why aren't facility defenses online?"
  • "Commander Palmer to Galileo Base. Doctor Owen. Doctor! Your base defenses are offline!"
  • "Freaking eggheads." - After Dr. Owen claims that Dr. Alexander diverted the defenses' power to a mini-reactor
  • "Turn on the base defenses! Now!"
  • "That should help keep the skies clear, but the ground's still your problem, Crimson."
  • "OK, so we know what's going on for once. Dalton, who have we got close?" - After Miller reports what he's overhearing on the Covenant battlenet.
  • "Tell them to saddle up. They're headed to Galileo Base fast as you can get them there. They're picking up a package while Crimson holds down the fort." - When Dalton reports Fireteam Majestic is nearby.
  • "Bullets outweigh science today, Doc." - After Dr. Alexander asks who cut off power to the mini-reactor.
  • "Why is nothing ever simple?" - When Dr. Alexander protests that the reactor must be brought back online or it will meltdown and destroy the base.
  • "Put them down, Crimson!" - When Promethean Knights arrive.
  • "Doctor Owen, prep our prize for transit."
  • "Crimson, you just keep being awesome down there."
  • "I see it, too. Crimson, heavy enemy movement, coming your way. Ready up."
  • "Crimson, clear out all the remaining Promethean targets."
  • "You've still got some Promethean stragglers, Crimson. Take 'em down."
  • "OK. Doctor Owen, you've got a courier coming your way in the form of a Spartan." - When Majestic Team arrives.

Memento Mori[edit]

  • "Crimson has the situation on the ground covered. Majestic, get that package off Galileo Base and back to the Infinity pronto!"
  • "It's amusing to see you not have the answer to everything, for once."
  • "What are you really doing?" - When Palmer overhears Halsey talking to Jul 'Mdama.
  • "Who are you talking to?"
  • "You want rude?" - When Halsey calls her rude for stealing her datapad.

Scattered[edit]

  • "I bet they keep you in something a lot smaller than a sandbox from now on, Catherine." - When Halsey is interrogated in Lasky's office.

Need To Know[edit]

  • “Crimson, the data collected from those Covie computers has tipped us off to a central intel center. I’d like you to poke around.”
  • "Look at that. Little jerks are sleeping on the job. Quick and quiet, Crimson. Get the drop on them." - Regarding Grunts sleeping around the area.
  • “Looks like we get to do this the old fashion way, Spartans. Run-and-gun.”
  • “That’s all of them.”
  • “It’s quiet... I don’t like it when it’s quiet.”
  • “Active camo. Keep your guard up, Crimson.”
  • “Crimson, looks like flipping the switch got you a bit more than you asked for, but I’m sure you can handle it. Stay the course and find that intel.”
  • “All right. Let’s see what the Covenant are up to.”
  • “Excellent. Run it through translation and give me the highlights. Crimson, time to catch your ride out of there.”

Search and Destroy[edit]

  • “Crimson, your job is to take out these Covie plasma stockpiles. Lots of explosions. Should be good fun.”

  • “Crimson, take that hill!”
  • "No extra credit for getting ahead of yourself. Just make sure you get all of the targets." - If Crimson destroys a stockpile that has not been marked yet
  • “Not exactly subtle, Crimson, but you get the job done. Now let’s do it a few more times.”
  • “Really? Let’s take a look. Crimson, I’d appreciate it if you taught the Covies that our toys don’t belong to them.”
  • “Let’s get a proper inventory.”
  • "Have we got it all figured out down there? I suppose you can find your own way home too." - If Crimson destroys the stockpiles out of order.

Switchback[edit]

  • “Crimson, track those IFFs. Either bring Switchback back home, or collect the heads of the Covies responsible!”
  • “But there’s no one here. No record. Not even a body...” - When an IFF tag is found.
  • “Ok, this is weird. Keep looking, Crimson.”
  • “We have four blank IFFs and zero bodies. What am I not understanding, Miller? Crimson, keep an eye out for any other signs of Switchback, and make sure the Covenant don’t reactivate the Harvester.”
  • “Let’s invite the Covies out to play. Just need something big and explosive to get their attention.”

  • “Power source, huh? Try hitting the conduit, Crimson!” - When told the nearby conduits are powering the artillery's shields.
