Progress Updates[edit]

"Woa-wee! I got the nudie mags! Worst case scenario, I still got somethin' to pass the time" (After you pick up the magazines)

"Is that a Bandit Spoonin' with a Robot? That is some artsy-fartsy bull crap, my friend. Chicks LOVE that! That's going in the poem. Robots and sexy stuff."

"Aw. A lone flower surrounded by blood n' stuff. I maybe could turn that into a symbol of... of like flowers, or - or birds, or - I got it!"

"Whoo boy! That bandit hung himself from his own tombstone! It's dark. It's depressing. I don't understand what I'm talking about. It's PERFECT! Puttin that in the poem."

"Allright, my poem is done completed and stuff! Get back here, and I will not read it to ya"

"I recorded my sweet nothin's into this here ECHO sevice. Just find Daisy and play it fer her. Gotta wait for her reaction, though, ya hear me? I gotsa know how it went!"

"Herein is Scooter's poem for Daisy. Here we go"

Finished Poem[edit]

This is the completed version of the poem Scooter wrote for Daisy:

Daisy, I like you a whole lot

More than that bandit liked spoonin' that ro-bot

You are a diamond in the rough

or a flower surrounded by shrapnel and stuff

I will hang myself from my own tombstone

If within you, I cannot put my bone.

Daisy's Reaction[edit]

"Wow, this is really... um, could you excuse me for a second? Thanks."

(Daisy enters her house and shoots herself"

Scooter asks: "So, What'd she think?"

Mission Briefing[edit]

Scooter wants to write a love poem, but he needs inspiration. He's asked you to explore Pandora and find natural (or unnatural) landmarks that can inspire him to complete his poem and win the heart of a woman named Daisy

Mission Debriefing[edit]

Everyone's a critic

"So, she didn't dig the poem, huh? I dunno, I thought it was pretty good"
