  • Cortana: "I think we both know the answer to that."
  • Keyes: (sighs) "We made a blind jump. How did they—"
  • Cortana: "Get here first? The Covenant ships have always been faster. As for tracking us all the way from light speed, my maneuvering options were limited."
  • Keyes: "We were running dark, yes?"
  • Cortana: "Until we decelerated. No one could have missed the hole we tore in subspace. They were waiting for us on the far side of the planet. And in about 90 seconds they'll be all over us."
  • Keyes: "Well, that's it then. Bring the ship back up to Combat Alert Alpha. I want everyone at their stations."
  • Cortana: "Everyone, sir?"
  • Keyes: "Everyone."
  • Keyes: "And Cortana... let's give our old friends a warm welcome."
  • Cortana: "I've already begun."
