->'''Morgan Everett:''' I trust you've been able to find yourself a place within the organization?\\
'''JC Denton:'''

->'''Morgan Everett:''' I trust you've been able to find yourself a place within the organization?\\
'''JC Denton:''' I'm personally overseeing the distribution of the vaccine, but it'll still take months to restore the infrastructure -- we'll have to arrange for additional food distribution and security in Paris... Maybe New York as well.\\
'''Morgan Everett:''' All through the proper intermediaries, of course.\\
'''JC Denton:''' Intermediaries?\\
'''Morgan Everett:''' We have a great number of... Agencies, who in turn operate other agencies. Boxes stacked one in another. They'll need to be reactivated, but we never touch anything directly. We only influence. Suggest. Insinuate.\\
'''JC Denton:''' The world must know by now, Everett. What we've done.\\
'''Morgan Everett:''' Know what? Only that the long night is over. The crown of government is tarnished - but that will fade in time. The riots, a fever dream; the plague, a horrible nightmare; and like everything else that's happened such things will only be dimly remembered upon waking to their normal lives. In the end, all sins are forgiven. Even yours.\\
'''JC Denton:''' What about the Constructor... And Helios?\\
'''Morgan Everett:''' Do you really think they're ready for that? After everything you've seen, everything you've done?\\
'''JC Denton:''' No. Not yet.\\
'''Morgan Everett:''' But soon. We have made our own mistakes, became insulated from the world we sought to control. And whatever they may think, the night is far from over. But that will change, and you will help us change even as we teach you. This time -- this time we will do it right.\\
'''JC Denton:''' And who are we? Who are we really?\\
'''Morgan Everett:''' We are the Invisible Hand. We are the Illuminati. We come before and after. We are forever. And eventually... Eventually we will lead them into the day.

->''Better to reign in Hell, than serve in Heaven.''

'''Tracer Tong:''' ...JC... The net's going... The net's going black, JC... No more infolinks...transmissions of any kind! We'll start again... live in villages... if you receive this, if you survive... then find us... find us!\\
'''Bob Page:''' HELIOS! What's happening?\\
'''HELIOS:''' The safety interlocks for the power generator have been disengaged.\\
'''Bob Page:''' Engage them! Immediately!\\
'''HELIOS:''' I cannot. My systems are not interfaced with the generator technology.\\

->''But I don't see how these days you could have a game with anything near as much depth and complexity as Deus Ex 1. And before all you people who like VideoGame/{{The Witcher 2|AssassinsOfKings}} start pounding your keyboard so hard that it starts snowing Cheeto dust, I meant the kind of complexity that ''I'' like. A plot where people can reference philosophy and Creator/GKChesterton in really, really bad accents, and it has [[InventoryManagementPuzzle intuitive inventory sorting]], and a health system where you can get all your arms and legs blown off and have to slither over to a health station using only your lips.''
