Umbra Elder: In your wickedness, you have broken the ancient commandments and crafted a bond with one of the light. Our laws are clear. They demand you be eternally imprisoned. As for the impure child, she must be kept from the path of the dark arts forever.
Balder: Rise my child! Rise to realize your true potential! Unleash your power and awaken the Eyes of the World!
Records of Time: The Witch Hunts
Narrator: Long since erased from the records of time, there once existed two European clans who served as overseers of history for the powers that be: The Umbra Witches, dwellers of the darkness, and the Lumen Sages, controllers of light. The clans paid each other great respect, and their efforts to maintain the balance between them defended the just passage of time. Yet, one day, that balance was toppled. The once harmonious clans fell into disagreement and stoked the flames of hatred against each other, resulting in an era of strife. The conflict between the Umbra and the Lumen threw all of Europe into a chaotic loop of battle, ambush, assassination, and casualty. It was truly a gruesome war. Despite the tremendous radiance of God shining upon them, the Lumen Sages were gradually weakened by the assault of the secretive dark witches. Years after the balance was lost, the war had ended in the Umbra Witches' favor. Their victory was short-lived. Fearing the witches' dark abilities, humans began to condemn the remaining Umbra. They launched the witch hunts, rounding up the battle-weary witches with little resistance and subjugating those who wished to continue the struggle. Human faith in the miracles of their God pushed the witch hunts further, and soon the Umbra Witches, keepers of the darkness, were extinguished from the Earth. All but one.
Jeanne: I'm OK!
Bayonetta: Let's go! Just stay close to me!
Prologue: The Vestibule
Enzo: It looks like Humpty Dumpty's taken his last fall. Even old Eggman the Destroyer gets scrambled in the end, right? You know, I still don't get why the hell you drag me out here for these things. I just drop off the merchandise. Hey, bet you can't guess what today is?
Bayonetta: [indistinctly reading from the bible]
Enzo: Readin' the good Lord's book ain't gonna do much. People been waiting for this asshole to get whacked for ages. Hell, look around. There's no love lost for old Humpty Dumpty. But you gotta keep the outfit happy. We don't take care of him, they take care of us, and I prefer my shoes made out of rubber, not concrete. But hey, it's that kinda town. Without good hearted souls like us to put these bastards six feet under, where'd society be? Course, the pay's not bad either.
Bayonetta: [continues reading]
Enzo: Jesus, you really get into this shit, dontcha? If it were me, I'd be praying he ends up barbecue... Or at least sunny side up! You can keep praying, but the only way this guy's meeting the Lord is if God's hungry for breakfast! Speaking of hungry, we done here? My kids are baking me a birthday cake tonight. Cute little fuckers, I tell ya what... Well then, adios! [angelic light appears] What the fuck!? They're here!? For this douchebag!? Aah! I hate this damn light! I can't see a thing! But they're there... Ain't they!? You hearin' me!? You can see them, can't you!?
Bayonetta: I see them. They are instruments of God, descending upon his heavenly rays to Earth.
Enzo: Oh... My... God...
Bayonetta: Dear Lord, grant us guidance and keep safe the souls of our loved ones for all eternity. [to angels] You look tired. Let me tuck you in.
Enzo: Oh shit! C'mon! It's my frickin' birthday! Mother of Mary! I didn't mean all that Humpty Dumpty shit, I swear!
Rodin: [to angels] Next time you wanna lay hands on me, you better make sure I'm dead. Now move out the way. Go!!!
Rodin: If it ain't my good buddy, Enzo. How bout you get outta here? You die, and I'm gonna have to go back in that hole chasin' after the money you owe me.
Bayonetta: Do you naughty little angels deserve a good spanking?
Rodin: Beautiful. Bayonetta!
Bayonetta: Now this is cheeky, throwing me these cheap toys!
Rodin: Don't worry about quality. I've got quantity!
Bayonetta: Guns! Guns! Guns! Guns!
Rodin: [to angels] If you're just gonna watch, I'm putting you two to work! That was your last call. No more shots from me, Bayonetta!
Bayonetta: As long as there's music, I'll keep on dancing.
Enzo: [grabbed by an angel] Hey! I'm not dead yet! You can't take me like this! It's against regulations, I tell ya!
Enzo: [upon seeing his car smashed] Ahhhh!! Damn it! Who did that!? I just bought the damn thing!
Bayonetta: [to angels] Haven't you figured it out yet!? There's no quarter for you in this world!
Bayonetta: Rodin should be paying me for even touching these toys.
Enzo: You have any idea how much this is going to cost to fix!? How the fuck do I always get wrapped up in this shit!?
Bayonetta: Engine still purrs nicely. Now, about this little thing you've been looking into for me, Enzo. Let's have a quick chat...
Enzo: See!? This is why I told you I was going home! I just got held up in the air by some invisible... things... and you want an intelligence briefing!? It never stops with you.
Rodin: You keep bellyachin' like that and you're liable to wake Eggman from the dead. And I don't think either of you would like that. Catch you later, Bayonetta. Something tells me you're going to need a rush on our special project. Before the shit hits the fan.
Enzo: Wait! Rodin! What about Eggman!?
Bayonetta: Such a popular chap. I bet they hate him down there as much as you did when he was up here. We just need to make sure he won't come crawling back when they kick him out.
Rodin: Nothing a flower bed can't fix. Fill 'er up.
Bayonetta: You heard the man. Finish up in 5 minutes or you're walking home to your cake and candles.
Enzo: What!? Don't you leave me here!
Enzo: What a day! I'm screwed! It's gonna take every cent I earned on this charade to pay for the damage... I tell you what, if I could see them bastards that did this to my car, fuggetaboutit!
Bayonetta: Enzo. The road? Pay attention, dear.
Enzo: How can you be so calm!? You're still getting screwed in all this, too! Of all the lowlife scum in too deep in this town, I've never seen one get wrapped up in a fight with God's messengers. Dressed like a nun, too. When you end up in the afterlife, that's not going to be pretty!
Bayonetta: I can't help it if I like the little outfits. The toys are nice, too.
Enzo: 20 years ago, you woke up stuck in a casket at the bottom of a lake. All you can remember is that you're a witch. But now you're stuck, because you've gotta sacrifice out halo-wearing friends everyday or they'll drag your ass back down to hell. I know I thought I got screwed, but bein' forced to slap around the divine for a livin'? That's really getting screwed!
Bayonetta: If I needed a biographer, you wouldn't be my first choice. I see to the funeral, you get me the information I asked for. That was our deal.
Enzo: Come on now! Look at my poor car! I'm working for free after this. At least let me get a drink at Rodin's before you start drilling me. The info I got is good. It's gonna get you close to finding the other stone in the pair, and figuring out some of that lost past of yours. I swear. After jewels instead of cash! Just like a girl! [grabbed by Bayonetta] Jesus! Can't you take a joke!?
Bayonetta: [removes small electronic device from Enzo's pocket] Enzo... Someone's given you a present. Too bad I can't stand bugs.
Enzo: [seeing a plane about to crash] Huh? What the fuck!?
Jeanne: What's the matter, Bayonetta? All that sleeping made you soft?
Bayonetta: That girl...
Rodin: Those assholes sure know how to get attention. Even perked the ears of the hot heads down home.
Bayonetta: You don't say.
Rodin: It's getting harder and harder to tell the worlds apart. Human world. Inferno. Paradiso. Who can tell the difference?
Bayonetta: Even harder with Purgatorio in the middle. Fight long enough in there and you'll really lose sight. Why the sudden interest in metaphysics?
Rodin: It's a balance, right? Even if some of them like messin' around with the humans, we've all got a stake in the status quo. But people keep fuckin' around like this, the Book of Revelations is gonna look like mother goose. Heaven and Hell are gonna go straight for each other's throats.
Bayonetta: Heaven and Hell can tear each other to pieces for all I care. I've got my own problems to worry about.
Rodin: Something's up. Everything was a bit too brazen, and Enzo's tip makes the timing too perfect. This reeks of a set up. Someone in one of those lost memories calling you out. I got a little present for you. These babies are special. Built from an alloy the devil himself would kill to get his hands on. Don't break these, cuz they're one-of-a-kind. [presents Bayonetta with Scarborough Fair]
Bayonetta: Calling me out? I don't go in for strange offers. Then again, I'm getting a little tired of these weaklings they keep throwing at me. Maybe I should aim for something a bit more... high class.
Rodin: Pounding them down tonight, baby. Not to butt into your affairs, but I'm pretty sure you got somewhere better to be. The guys you're up against aren't the type to wait for you to finish a round. [turns around to find Bayonetta gone] Enzo! Her drinks are goin' on your tab, buddy! Ya deadbeat motherfucker.
Chapter I: The Angels' Metropolis
Enzo: So, I Asked around, and some whale in Europe is trying to fence a huge rock on the black market. He calls it the "Right Eye," saying it's part of some set called "The Eyes of the World." Fits the bill of what you're after, don't it? Now here's the funny bit. The stone passes around the halls of power for hundreds of years, vanishes, and then the black market goes white hot for the thing. But the seller wanted an arm and a leg for it, to the point no one could stomach the price. So back goes the stone. But not before everyone figures out where the guy is! You're gonna enjoy doing this one I bet. I love stickin' it to the rich. Of course, when you do, don't forget your old buddy Enzo stuck his neck out on this one. Slide me a few fazoles out of the rich guy's pocket for my troubles, right!? Anyways, you better get going before the trail gets cold. Off to the middle of nowhere. Paradise of Europe. Vigrid.
PA system: Welcome to Vigrid, our final stop. Entry Visas are required of all travelers. Please submit your Vigrid issued Entry Visa for inspection upon disembarking. Please make sure you take all your valuable belongings with you. Repeating this message...
Balder: So, you have arrived at last, my dear. The time has come to awaken The Eyes of the World. Fear not, my dear child. Such a beautiful young lady you've become. I'll always see to it no harm comes to you.
Bayonetta: So... This is supposed to be paradise?
Bayonetta: The sphere embedded in the wall is emitting a wondrous light and resonant sound. Getting closer to it makes it glow brighter. It's as if it has some sort of ability to respond to a witch's power built in.
Bayonetta: It is a set of two crystal statues... But one is in pieces. It has been destroyed in an unnatural manner, as if in a fit of rage powered by a deeply held grudge.
Statues: Lumen Sage and Umbra Witch. When their powers meet in a test of strength, the lightning released will be your test. If you wish to walk upon water, prove your mettle by dodging the lightning in a single hair's breadth.
Rodin: I knew it. This town's teeming with heaven's little helpers. It's making my buddies downstairs awfully nervous.
Bayonetta: And your point is?
Rodin: Some places in this world are closer to Paradiso or Inferno. The rathole of a town you and I live in is close to both, but the Vigridians got this special air about 'em. They're closer to Paradiso than anyone should ever be. And that shit just plain creeps me out. Heh, I guess I'm gonna have to set up shop here and score me some halos. These stupid rings are worth a fortune back home. Since it seems you're spoiling for a fight, if you come across any of these, bring 'em to me and I'll hook you up.
Bayonetta: Another one looking to line his pockets. Huh, I'm beginning to see why Enzo is so fond of you.
Rodin: Real cute. But let's get one thing straight, your fights are yours alone. I'm only here to watch my handiwork in action. So don't get any bright ideas about coming to me for help.
Bayonetta: No, you get one thing straight. I'm not the slightest bit interested in the fact that you made these guns. If you get in my way, I will, how do the Americans put it? Oh yes. Bust a cap in yo' ass.
Rodin: Right on, baby! Right on!
Bayonetta: A poster for some sort of event. The letters are similar to those used in magical seals.
Bayonetta: It looks like a station gate; however, it is sealed shut. Maybe due to some sort of alarm system. The electronic sign above the door clashes with the old stone building it has been installed in. The building must be ancient ruins that were remodeled into a station.
Bayonetta: The history of the station is written here. It seems it was converted from an ancient temple.
Umbra Witch: What are you doing!? Let's go!
Chapter II: Vigrid, City of Déjà Vu
Jeanne: Fancy bumping into you here. Out to find some answers about your past, are we?
Bayonetta: You've quite the familiar face. And using the same powers. But you'll have to forgive me, do we know each other?
Jeanne: Same powers!? Don't make me laugh. Your little dip in that lake has left you a bit rusty.
Bayonetta: I've been high and dry for 20 years now. The only rust on me is from the lack of any real challenge. Perhaps you're up for the task.
Jeanne: You've already disappointed me.
Jeanne: This is a moment I have long desired. But you've forgotten your destiny and wasted the past 20 years.
Bayonetta: You're right, I do seem to be having trouble remembering things of late. Would you be so kind as to take it from the top?
Jeanne: Two overseers... The Eyes of the World. They are the power behind everything.
Umbra Elder: Jeanne, as heir to the clan, the time has come for you to prove your right to fight under the Umbran name. You may select opponents of your choice.
Jeanne: Then allow me to face the outcast.
Umbra Elder: No! It is forbidden! The child is of impure blood. Challenging her would be a violation of our tenets of faith!
Jeanne: It would not be the first time we have faced each other.
Umbra Elder: What!?
Jeanne: Will you face me in this hallowed arena?
Bayonetta: Well if I must, but I pray you've got a little something for me in return. You know, I'm very fond of stuffed animals.
Security guard: Stop!
Luka: Do you believe in fate? Fate brought us here together, and it will never tear us apart.
Security guard: Damnit! I said stop! I'm authorized to use deadly force! Fuck! Where'd that bugger go!?
Luka: Fleur de Cirey, Eau du Parfum. Such a wonderful floral bouquet, with its subtle hints of Rosemary. You know, in the language of flowers, rosemary equates to remembrance. Which doesn't quite equate to you, now does it, Bayonetta. [Bayonetta shoots in the air] Shit! Will you stop that!?
Bayonetta: That little bug on Enzo was a nice touch. Seeing you here, I suppose it wasn't the only one. You've certainly bloomed, haven't you, my little Cheshire puss?
Luka: I'm not your pet. The name is Luka. A name you better remember. [large sign nearly falls onto him] Shit! Damn it! Wait! You can't just run away from me like that! I know what I saw that day! I know all about your kind. Sure, my colleagues laugh at me for chasing fairy tales, amongst other things, but I know they're real! I know the truth. This smell... It's the same smell that clung to the air the day my father was murdered. Which means I'm right on your doorstep, Bayonetta!
Bayonetta: I'll let you in on a little secret, Cheshire.
Luka: The name is Luka.
Bayonetta: You need to hone your sense of smell, my dear. There's no rosemary in perfume. After all, rosemary's a demon repellent.
Luka: You only run away so fast because you've got something to run from... Me! But you can't escape me forever!
Bayonetta: Who's there? You've played enough hide and seek, my scurrying little friend. Just a child? What are you doing running around Vigrid? You're certainly not dressed in your Sunday best.
Rosa: Fly me to the moon and let me play among the stars. Let me see what spring is like on Jupiter and Mars. In other words...
Fortitudo: The Eyes of the World... The two overseers... What once was held in the hands of the witch clan shall now be held in ours!
Chapter III: The Burning Ground
Fortitudo: Are you the one to have awakened me from my heavenly slumber, my world of light, and summoned me into this world of chaos? The taint of the dark world is upon you. Yet you have made but a pact with the darkness in exchange for the powers of a witch. It was said that one such pitiful creature survived the annihilation. Tell me, my child. What is your name?
Bayonetta: If I was your child, I'd be an awfully ugly witch, wouldn't I? Yours is a face only a mother could love, and one I could never forget. If only I could remember where from...
Fortitudo: Well then. My apologies. If you are not my awakener, then you and I have no quarrel.
Bayonetta: No quarrel? You're in no position to decide that. See, my infernal partners love my ability to eliminate your kind. I figure your sacrifice would shut them up for a while.
Bayonetta: The disaster has caused the cliff to collapse. The other side is nothing but a sea of flames. There has to be another path somewhere...
Bayonetta: There's an ancient portal-like object here. There may be even more evidence of the town this ancient civilization created in the catacombs below...
Bayonetta: The falling rocks took out that stone bridge. There is nothing but a sea of lava below.
Bayonetta: Light is flooding out of the gate. There seems to be a completely different environment on the other side.
Bayonetta: A giant stone monument of a Lumen Sage and Umbra Witch. A strange object is floating in the middle as if it was being held up by some force.
Bayonetta: It seems like that strange hourglass is able to turn back the sands of time. What once was broken is now whole again... I wonder if that power stays true in other dimensions as well...?
Bayonetta: The city is wrapped in flames. It doesn't seem likely the fire will dissipate.
Chapter IV: The Cardinal Virtue of Fortitude
Fortitudo: [to an unseen Balder] You are most understood. Our fate is tied with the demon world, and we share your earnest interest in this matter. However, if she does not reach us alive, this conversation was all for naught.
Bayonetta: You again? And here I thought I'd seen the last of you.
Fortitudo: It is most kind of you to alleviate my need to search you out, Bayonetta. Please forgive me my prior trespass and lack of hospitality.
Bayonetta: I'm sure you will be more than hospitable to me this time around.
Fortitudo: I have been informed that a survivor of the witch hunts is resisting our dominion. However, her inevitable reunion with hell makes her such a sad soul. If you are this pitiful being, then shall I release you from your torment.
Bayonetta: I'm sorry. I forgot to mention one of the reasons I hunt your kind. You're much too ugly not to put out of your misery.
Fortitudo: Challenging us with the dark arts!? No matter the age, witches never learn...
Bayonetta: Flock off, feather-face!
Bayonetta: You know, you're not nearly so ugly when you're screaming.
Fortitudo: It was as foretold... Your power... Incredible...
Bayonetta: Foretold!? Explain yourself!
Fortitudo: I, Fortitudo, am but a simple sacrifice for the resurrection of the Creator. May the Creator, Jubileus grace you on your journey.
Balder: My dear, sweet child... Fear not, for I am watching over you... Continue on your path.
Chapter V: The Lost Holy Grounds
Bayonetta: Where the hell am I? I better have got frequent flyer miles for that flight.
Bayonetta: Huh? My lipstick.
Luka: Nothing! Damn... What the--!?
Bayonetta: I've often seen a girl without lipstick, but lipstick without a girl!? Most curious, isn't it Cheshire? What's also most curious is how a child like you has kept afloat in this town.
Luka: The... name... is... Luka! And don't you think it's a little strange to be worried about my well-being? Sure, the festival of resurrection has peaked security. The thing only happens once every 500 years, can you blame them? Besides, when you look as good as I do, security isn't a problem. But a killer like you on the other hand... I'm sure you've found a way.
Bayonetta: That little girl... I've seen her somewhere...
Balder: My dear, sweet child... She is the key to your future. To save yourself, you must also save the girl.
Luka: Hey, don't go freaking out on me. We both know you came here for something. But what you don't know is the closer you get, the harder it's gonna be for you to get away from me and what you've done. You'll have to fess up to it all! Ahh... I can't wait for you to get your hands on whatever it is you're after.
Bayonetta: Let me guess, you want a cut? Well, if you're still alive by then, perhaps you can appeal to my generosity?
Luka: Still alive? You may be standing right in front of me, but you're definitely not living in reality. Which is a shame, because the truth is always going to be the truth. All I see when I look at you, the real you, is the truth. The truth is you killed my father. I don't care who believes me, they can't reject the truth. The truth will set me free from your black stain on my life. The truth will allow me to expose you to the world. Then I'll have won. And I'll do it without stooping to your level, because I'm not a heartless witch like you. Whoa, what are you going to do!? Kill me in plain sight? Go ahead. It would only prove everything I've said about you. Well, that, and sadden the hearts of a number of young ladies. Claire, and Trish, and Silvia, and Ammy... Oh you don't want to piss her off let me tell you. Hell hath no fury! What the...?
Temperantia: What is the meaning of this? This is now not once, but twice. Explain this meddling in our affairs!
Jeanne: The only ones meddling are your hapless minions. This will be taken care of in the manner I see fit. Your assistance is not required.
Jeanne: I suppose coming here has given you a second wind. Feeling better, Bayonetta?
Bayonetta: Who are you? And don't you dare say my long lost sister.
Jeanne: Sister!? You've quite the active imagination. You and I once fought for the jewel upon the crown of the Umbra throne. And now that you've returned, my sleeping beauty, it is time to finish that fight. No time for daydreaming.
Jeanne: Those cretins fouled it all up again! But perhaps this can be to my advantage.
Jeanne: What's the matter sweetie? Afraid of something, are you!?
Bayonetta: Afraid? Me?
Jeanne: This is a waste of my time. You're still not ready.
Bayonetta: Oh my... That was bloody amazing.
Chapter VI: The Gates of Paradise
Bayonetta: The witch statue here is also in terrible shape. But restoring this one to its former glory should be easy by now.
Bayonetta: What are you boys doing in here? Are you hiding something from me? Come on... You've been cheating on me, haven't you? Someone else caught your eye?
Bayonetta: Oh dear... Something tells me I'm going to regret this...
Balder: My sweet, lovely child... She is the key to your future.
Bayonetta: [to angels] I'm not normally one to play saviour, but I suppose I can make an exception and kill all of you. Just this once, of course.
Bayonetta: Fly me to the moon and let me play among the stars. Let me see what spring is like on Jupiter...
Bayonetta: Was I just singing?
Bayonetta: Whoa whoa whoa! Slow down, little one. I am not your mother.
Cereza: But... Mummy!
Bayonetta: Will you quit calling me "Mummy"!
Bayonetta: If there's two things I hate in this world, it's cockroaches and crying babies. Well, a crying baby cockroach would be truly terrible.... So don't you dare cry.
Cereza: Yes, Mummy.
Bayonetta: Fine. You've got to be a strong little one to survive in a place like this. What's your name, anyway?
Bayonetta: Cereza? You're not from Vigrid, are you little one? Where are you from?
Cereza: I'm from my house.
Bayonetta: Well now, I'll hazard a guess this isn't your home, so what on earth are you doing here?
Cereza: My Daddy told me to come here.
Bayonetta: And whereabouts is this "Daddy" of yours?
Cereza: He was at work, but now I don't know where he's gone. I want to go home!
Bayonetta: I can't just drag you along wherever I go little one. So you better not be getting attached to me.
Cereza: Yes, Mummy.
Bayonetta: Ugh. Come now little one. I'll help you out of here, but that's all. And you have to promise there will be no crying. A single tear and you'll be crying alone. Got it?
Cereza: Okay, Mummy.
Bayonetta: [to a wandering Cereza] Hey! This is probably how you got lost to begin with.
Cereza: [upon seeing angels] M-Mummy...
Bayonetta: Don't worry, it's always scary the first time you see them. [to angels] So where was I? Oh yes. Your kind invitation. I do hope you've prepared dessert as well. Oh what a lovely tea party! And dancing, too! Cereza, my dear, watch and learn!
Luka: Mummy!? You're a mom? You!?
Bayonetta: Come now Cheshire. Look at me. Do I look like I have any interest in children? Now making them... Well, that's another story.
Luka: Whoa! Whoa! You're getting the wrong idea. I mean, it might be the right idea. But not right now right, right? Yeah... Uh... Speaking of right, I'm glad I've been standing around waiting for you, because I knew we'd cross paths. See, the only way to reach the upper crust and their gated island of champagne wishes and caviar dreams is over Prominence Bridge.
Bayonetta: Oh... Yes... The island... Lovely place, isn't it? Oh, now what!?
Luka: Don't play games with me! You've worked your magic on this poor defenseless child, haven't you!? You're a sad, sick woman, you know that? I was her age when you killed my father. Wait... No... You couldn't... Oh my god, you did, didn't you? You killed her parents!
Bayonetta: Hmm... Come to think of it, she's better off with you. You two are more hassle than you're worth.
Bayonetta: Just keep a good eye on her, or you're going to catch hell for it. No good deed goes unpunished, and you never know when a monster may sneak up on you.
Cereza: Mummy! Look out!
Luka: How in the--
Cereza: Mummy! No!
Bayonetta: How can she see me!?
Chapter VII: The Cardinal Virtue of Temperance
Temperantia: Ahh, the lovely Bayonetta. Such beautiful eyes... Despite the passing of time, you still hold the pride of an overseer, don't you?
Bayonetta: I feel like a fucking celebrity in this town. See that!? Everyone rushes at me like crazed fans. They still haven't figured out that I don't give autographs!
Temperantia: Long before this universe came to be, the first Armageddon split reality into light, dark, and chaos. It was in this battle that those who rebelled against the light claimed dominion over the darkness. We have but one goal: resurrecting the Creator and reunifying the Trinity of Realities. That shall be the purpose of your sacrifice!
Bayonetta: I'm not much for the talkative types. How about we have a little fun instead. You did plan on having fun with me, right? There will be plenty of time for pillow talk afterwards.
Bayonetta: All done? Well, let me give you back your toy then!
Temperantia: He was right! So wonderfully right! Your eyes... May the Creator, Jubileus, grace you!
Bayonetta: Bugger. And I didn't make any time for pillow talk.
Chapter VIII: Route 666
Bayonetta: That bridge in these heels? I don't suppose I can call a cab to get me to the island.
Security guard: Look alive people! We have an unidentified vehicle approaching. Close the gate!
Luka: Woohoo! Did you see that!? I told you there was nothing to worry about!
Cereza: Mummy! Mummy saved us!
Bayonetta: Hello there, Cheshire.
Bayonetta: It seems your driving is on par with your journalism.
Luka: I figured I'd beat you to the island! But the guards had another idea, didn't they? Not really my best plan, huh?
Bayonetta: You think you've got me figured out, don't you?
Luka: We journalists have to have some detective skills, you know? You're after a gem stone. And that stone has the be in the Ithavoll Group Building. I'm headed there too.
Bayonetta: How odd. You seem to know where I'm going before I do. Yet you don't seem to know how to drive a car in a straight line.
Luka: What am I, a chauffeur!?
Bayonetta: Cheshire, do you have any idea what prolonged walking in this salty air will do to my hair?
Luka: Well, I tend to use some product when I go to the beach.
Bayonetta: [upon gunfire being opened on them] Little one! Get down! Put your foot down, Cheshire. I'll take care of our pest problem.
Bayonetta: I'm getting the distinct impression I'm not wanted on that island!? But I love it when people play hard to get!
Bayonetta: Time to go vroom!
Luka: Holy crap! For fuck's sake, that's overdoing it!
Bayonetta: Right! Turn Right! Get off the road!
Bayonetta: I know you don't want me here, but you really could have been more subtle about it.
Chapter IX: Paradiso - A Remembrance of Time
Bayonetta: Jesus. This is...
Balder: My dear, sweet child... Fear not, for I am watching over you...
Chapter X: Paradiso - A Sea of Stars
Bayonetta: Vigrid... I've been there before.
Bayonetta: Jeanne? Cereza? The little one?
Bayonetta: Tentacles... Why did it have to be tentacles?
Cereza: What happened to Mummy?
Luka: Well, you see, she just went to look for something, that's all. I can't believe that witch. Placing a poor helpless child under her spell. If she did anything to this little girl's parents, I swear...
Cereza: [falls; crying] Mummy.
Luka: No need to cry... We'll get you to your mom in no time. Here, I've got some candy if you want.
Cereza: Mmm... What is this? It's yummy.
Luka: I don't know... It's candy. Strawberry, I think?
Cereza: Hey kitty, I've got some yummies. Would you like some?
Luka: Is that cat your friend?
Cereza: Yes he is. His name is Cheshire. He's cute, isn't he?
Luka: Cheshire... What a stupid name. Well, so much for taking the highway... That just means we're gonna have to find something else. Now all I have to figure out is what to do about you. So, Cerezita. That woman's really your mom?
Cereza: Uh-huh! My Mummy is strong and she protects me from scary monsters!
Luka: Monsters? I don't think you know who the real monsters are.
Cereza: [screams] Help! Mummy!
Chapter XI: The Cardinal Virtue of Justice
Cereza: Mummy! Help!
Luka: Don't panic! I'm here. There's no need to worry about a thing!
Cereza: Get them, Mummy! Get them!
Cereza: Can't you see? Mummy's fighting the bad monsters for us. Mister, if you don't open your eyes you'll miss everything! Look with these! [gives Luka her glasses]
Luka: [upon seeing the ground crumbling] Holy shit!
Luka: [about to collide with a wall] OH NO!
Luka: [seeing Iustitia appear] What the hell is that thing?
Luka: Cerezita, this is way too dangerous!
Cereza: [drops her doll] Cheshire!
Bayonetta: Well, kitty, what do you think we should do? He's hurt you, has he? Well, we can't be having that now can we!? [to Iustitia] Let's rock, baby!
Bayonetta: How about now, kitty? Still not enough you say? [to Iustitia] You can go another round, can't you?
Iustitia: It was as the Lumen Sage foretold. Your power is indeed magnificent.
Bayonetta: The Lumen Sage?
Iustitia: Long have two eyes, one light and one dark, watched over the world and its history. It is this power that will allow the creator to start a new cycle of creation. Bayonetta, may Jubileus, the Creator, grace you!
Bayonetta: Now where are my new best friends? I suppose one of them is an adult, so they should be ok.
Chapter XII: The Broken Sky
Cereza: Excuse me, sir, may I have my glasses back?
Luka: Huh? Oh... Yeah... Here you go. Cereza, how did you get such... Magical glasses?
Cereza: [laughs] The glasses aren't magic, silly. I can see the monsters without them!
Luka: Monsters... Not quite. So, uh, has Bayonetta, I mean your mom, been fighting these big bad monsters for a long time?
Cereza: Mummy is a witch, and witches protect people and are very strong. When I grow up, I'll be strong too and I'll protect my mummy!
Luka: Wait... You think witches do what!? Aww, forget it. No point in arguing with a little kid. I'll manage on my own.
Bayonetta: I'm sure you will.
Bayonetta: You never cease to amuse me, Cheshire. [referring to an airship] I suppose that's your next target? [hands Cereza her doll] This is yours, little one. You didn't cry while I was gone, did you?
Luka: Bayonetta... No matter how I ask, no matter how many times, you always say the same thing.
Bayonetta: Come now, kitty. You know it was all ju--
Luka: --a misunderstanding. You're so stubborn, you know that!? My father... He was a journalist, too. In fact, he was twice the man I could ever hope to be. He was obsessed with one case his entire career. A case so bizarre it took over his life. They could have made a movie of the details: The followers of darkness, the Umbra Witches, and their light world counterparts, the Lumen Sages, controlling everything with a power known as "The Eyes of the World." Then, the light and dark clans suddenly disappeared from their medieval home in Europe. You may be familiar with the town. You're standing in it. Welcome to Vigrid, 500 years later.
Bayonetta: 500 years.
Luka: Each clan, working at the behest of the powers that be, sought to lead their fractured world towards peace. They both possessed an "Eye," said to have the power to create history, that they used to oversee the world. However, their spirit of cooperation did not last, for amongst them, a pair of young star-crossed lovers conceived a child that sent the clans on a path to ruin. The woman was thrown in jail, and the man exiled form his clan. However, the child remained with the Umbra, raised as a black sheep, even amongst the darkness. Since the balance between light and dark had been lost, both clans spiraled into decay. Legend had it that the two "Eyes" could be united to control reality itself, and this legend fueled ambition and desire, leading to a myriad of battles between the clans. In fact, it led to their mutual destruction. My father was mocked for buying such a fairy tale; however, I believed his story. And I believe it more than ever now that I've found you. The memory of the clan lingers on, despite the passing on 500 years. What on earth was my father searching for? And why did he have to die for it? I have to discover the truth with my own eyes. That's why I haven't given up my chase for it. Or you. The head of the Ithavoll Group, the multi-national that dominates Vigrid, recently tried to sell an enormous gem stone on the black market. If he isn't selling out in the open, it means we're going to have to acquire it by other means. And that starts by sneaking on to that jet.
Cereza: Mummy, are you looking for something?
Bayonetta: I am.
Cereza: How did you lose it?
Bayonetta: Little one, do you have anything you really like? Something really important to you?
Cereza: [initially presents Cheshire, then Umbran Watch] Yes! This! I love it.
Bayonetta: Where did you get this?
Cereza: You gave it to me, mummy. For my birthday!
Bayonetta: When you love something, never lose it. Understand, little one? You must keep it safe, close to your heart. [Cereza wandering around when an explosion occurs] Little one!
Luka: [after rescuing but losing hold of Cereza] Cereza! Damn.
Jeanne: Back to your old self, are we? Why so glum? Something troubling you?
Bayonetta: Only your constant fretting over my state of affairs. I've no time to play games with you.
Jeanne: No need to take out your stress on me, Bayonetta. It's clear you're worried for the girl.
Bayonetta: Tell me where she is. Now.
Jeanne: My, aren't we attached to our precious little one? Do you like it when she calls you "Mummy"?
Bayonetta: You're absolutely delusional. If I leave her, he'll never shut up about it. And his whining is twice as irritating as anything the child could muster.
Jeanne: [laughs] You've quite the tongue when it comes to curling round the truth.
Bayonetta: And what about you? What are you hiding? [throws Jeanne the small statue] Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think these might mean something to you.
Jeanne: [gasp; pause] I've no need for worthless junk.
Sapientia: Why must you needlessly stumble and stall? Have you forgotten the task with which you have been charged? Make haste, for the era of the Creator approaches!
Jeanne: I am well aware of my task! But you have forgotten that I do not need your help! [to Bayonetta] It seems your little friend is gone forever. Fill them! Fill your eyes with hatred. Accept your violent fate! Accept it and earn the Left Eye! Prove you deserve it!
Balder: Fear not my child, for no harm will come to you. I'm always watching over you... My dear, sweet child.
Jeanne: [to Sapientia] Not yet. She isn't ready.
Bayonetta: Little one! Where are you!? Little one! Can you hear me!?
Cereza: Mummy! Mummy! Mummy!
Cereza: Mummy! I was so scared.
Bayonetta: No crying now, little one. You know the rules - No cockroaches or crying babies. Time to go, little one. Hold on tight, OK?
Chapter XIII: The Cardinal Virtue of Prudence
Luka: Let's go!
Cereza: Mummy! Mummy!
Bayonetta: It's OK, little one, I'll be right back.
Cereza: Mummy! Mummy!
Sapientia: The woman fled so swiftly. I am reminded why we have come to rely upon the unreliable nature of humanity. A valuable lesson, but not my purpose. I have come to evaluate you and determine whether you are worthy of your role in the resurrection of the Creator, Jubileus.
Bayonetta: Another talkative type. I don't think I've got time to entertain your blather. I'd much rather hear it straight from your boss.
Sapientia: You speak of our "boss"!? The resurrection 500 years ago fell victim to his human ineptitude, and we were unable to revive the Creator. However, I must thank the Sage for his witch hunts. His impetus eradicated a vile clan from this Earth.
Bayonetta: The witch hunts?
Sapientia: Thanks to his efforts, this town has become a source of strength and we've gained a foothold strong enough to orchestrate the Creator's resurrection. All that remains is awakening the Left Eye, and uniting the Eyes of the World. Then the new era of creation shall arrive!
Bayonetta: I have no idea why you would want this stone. It would look absolutely terrible on you. Much too flashy.
Sapientia: Stone? You think this is all about some worthless rock!? May Jubileus, the Creator, grace you!
Bayonetta: Welcome aboard, Cheshire.
Luka: Oh, fucking hell!
Bayonetta: I told you I'd be right back. [to Luka] Shouldn't you be, you know, flying this thing? I'm a bit occupied at the moment.
Luka: Well, so much for the subtle approach. We might as well have speakers on this thing blaring Ride of the fucking Valkyries.
Bayonetta: Come now. We're VIPs. You know, nothing says you've made it in life like a private helicopter.
Luka: Then welcome aboard Air Luka Flight 001. This is your captain, LUKA, speaking. Fasten your safety belts as this may be a bumpy flight.
Chapter XIV: Isla del Sol
Luka: You're really not going to like what comes next. I hope you know that.
Bayonetta: Don't tell me. Air Cheshire has awful in-flight entertainment and horrendous food?
Luka: Think about it. Those things that downed the jet aren't just going to let us land on their island. You think we can just say "Hey, we're here!" and they'll bring us a cake? Things look good from up here. But the further down you go the harder it is to not notice the reality... of things. [stares at Bayonetta's bosom]
Bayonetta: Cheshire. Look.
Luka: Oh... I'm lookin'. [looks up to see missiles heading toward the helicopter] Oh, fuck me!
Bayonetta: Welcome to my fantasy zone. Get ready!
Cereza: [upon arriving in Isla del Sol] It's brilliant, mummy!
Jeanne: Welcome to Isla del Sol, island of wealth and power!
Jeanne: If you've made it this far, that should be enough. You're back to your old self. This is where we finish what was started so long ago.
Bayonetta: A friend of my enemy is also my enemy. Be it Witch or Sage.
Jeanne: The Lumen Sages... They were our counterbalance as overseers. Between us there was a law that was never to be broken. It stated that "The intersection of light and dark would bring calamity to this earth." But 500 years ago, a child was born in clear violation of this tenet. That child was you.
Bayonetta: 500 years ago.
Jeanne: The disaster this caused sent the clans into a spiral of chaos that continues to be felt to this day. You, the half-breed of light and dark, are at the center of that chaos. Allowing you to continue to exist is a danger that cannot be accepted.
Jeanne: When the Eyes of the World are within our grasp, the power of creation will be awakened. That is why the Left Eye, our treasured Left Eye, will never fall into the hands of another!
Jeanne: The Left Eye, our treasured Left Eye, will never fall into the hands of another! Bayonetta, it is time that this is brought to an end. That you are brought to an end!
Bayonetta: You... You did it.
Jeanne: It is our charge as witches to protect the treasures of the clan... By any means necessary. Even if it means burning every inch of this island to a crisp.
Luka: [snatches missile remote control from Jeanne] I'm really beginning to hate missiles. You know, I have no idea what the hell you girls got going on here, but you don't mind if I take this off your hands, do ya? Get in, Cerezita.
Cereza: Mummy... Mummy!
Bayonetta: [seeing Luka's car explode] Cheshire! Cereza...
Jeanne: Bayonetta. Time is of the essence. This can wait no longer!
Jeanne: Now it's decided.
Bayonetta: So it is.
Jeanne: The fear is still not gone from your eyes...
Jeanne: The memories you've held for 500 years are the source of your fear. They cloud your vision. But now, you've accepted your fate. That is how you bested me. That is why you possess the most beloved of Umbran treasures. That is why you possess the Left Eye.
Bayonetta: We fought for this stone... And because of it everyone died.
Jeanne: That gem brings back so many memories...
Jeanne: That is why the Left Eye, our treasured Left Eye, will never fall into the hands of another! I will not stand for the wild ambition of a treacherous Lumen Sage who disrupted our age old balance. Your path ends here! Do not fear your fate. Stand... Cereza.
Jeanne: In the innocence of our childhood, we used to play together as friends. But as time passed, perhaps even my eyes were clouded with fear.
Bayonetta: We were...?
Jeanne: Do not fear your fate. Stand, Cereza. Stand and open your eyes. For with every truth, there is another one to be seen.
Luka: Hey. Is it over!? What!? It's not like you don't scare the shit out of me all the time!?
Bayonetta: Cereza! I don't know whether to shoot you or take you to Vegas for good luck, Cheshire.
Luka: Give me more credit than that. If you must know... Where L.U.K.A. Luka is concerned, there's no such thing as luck. Only skill. You didn't expect me to trust bitches... I mean witches, did you, Bayonetta!?
Bayonetta: How's the little one?
Luka: Out like a light, but OK other than that. What about you? You really think I'm gonna let myself be seen in public with a girl looking all beat up like that?
Bayonetta: I look dreadful, do I? You'll have to learn to wipe that stupid look off your face or I'll never let you keep chasing me around this world. Got that? Luka.
Luka: Now that's more like it.
Chapter XV: A Tower to Truth
Bayonetta: Welcome back, little one.
Cereza: Mummy... Where are we?
Luka: It looks like someone's expecting us. Awfully nice of them to roll out the red carpet.
Bayonetta: Luka, you need to get one thing straight--
Luka: Yeah. I know. "I won't look after you, so don't screw up." I got things under control.
Bayonetta: Let's go. Stay next to me, little one.
Balder: Rise my child! Rise to realize your true potential! Unleash your power and awaken the Eyes of the World!
Cereza: Daddy! It's Daddy!
Cereza: Of course, Mummy! Can't you hear him? OK, Daddy. I'm coming... And I'll bring Mummy with me.
Bayonetta: Little one, wait!
Cereza: This way, Mummy!
Bayonetta: Little one! Little one!
Luka: Cerezita!? Bayonetta!? Damn it.
Chapter XVI: The Lumen Sage
Balder: What follows those living in the light is nothing but the profound, empty darkness born from the shadow that grows longer as they approach the brilliant radiance. To truly see, your eyes must be open to both light and dark. Don't you agree, my dear child?
Cereza: Mummy's here! Mummy's here! Mummy!
Bayonetta: Little one...
Balder: You've arrived... My dear, sweet Cereza. My my... Why the grim face, my dear. As a child, your smile was warmer than the sun.
Bayonetta: So, you are the last of the Lumen Sages.
Balder: I am indeed. My name is Balder. But if you so choose, you may address me as Father. There is much you have forgotten- It has been 500 years since we last met. If your memories were still intact, this would have been a much more emotional reconciliation.
Bayonetta: How did you get the girl?
Balder: Where shall I begin? We, the Lumen Sages, and your Umbra Witches, have long been the overseers of history, each bearing witness with their own "eye." This is how our universe's existence was preserved. However, for 500 years, you have been exiled from the world's affairs. You are the Left Eye of the Eyes of the World.
Bayonetta: Could you dispense with the riddles and just tell me what these sodding Eyes actually are!
Balder: Your years of slumber have caused you to forget many things, even as we stand on the verge of the resurrection of the Creator... The resurrection of Jubileus. There is but one way to return your epoch of forgotten memories and open your eye of the overseer. Your uncorrupted eye had to be exposed to the history it could not see. Ah... Your battles... Your struggles... Everything you've experienced in this town has been a stepping stone to your enlightenment. It has all been done for the Left Eye.
Bayonetta: I've had enough of your philosophical pretensions. I won't ask again. Where did you get the girl?
Balder: Your question has been answered. All this has been done to awaken the Left Eye. For that, you had to see yourself once more.
Bayonetta: You are truly beyond salvation, Sage.
Balder: Ahh... Salvation. Such a curious word. I marked the path to salvation with light. However, no matter how brilliant that light grows, the darkness within the human heart grows even darker. Light, Dark, and Chaos between... Three realities once split shall be brought together to create a new universe in the image of the old. To these ends, leading to the Festival of Resurrection 500 years ago, I fanned the flames of terror... spurring on the witch hunts. However, despite the people's belief in the return of Jubileus, the Creator, the Left Eye was out of reach. Since then, I have devoted myself to this town's prosperity, and now it is time for my preparations to bear fruit. Jubileus will be resurrected, we will become the Eyes of the World, and a new universe will take hold!
Bayonetta: I could never call the man behind this nightmare "Father"!
Luka: Great speech, big guy.
Luka: Getting a bit ahead of ourselves, aren't we Mr. Big Shot Ithavoll Executive? Salvation, light... You take this entrepreneurial philosophy a bit seriously, don't ya? But it's all diarrhea of the mouth, if you ask me. History is littered with famous genocidal figures just like you... Or should I say infamous genocidal figures.
Balder: You must be Luka, journalist extraordinaire. I must say, I'm truly impressed you've made it this far, child. Like father, like son, I suppose.
Balder: Luka, Luka, Luka... Your father had problems with my philosophies. It's fine to investigate, but when malicious rumors start to spread, I must see to it that they come to a stop. For being kind enough to ascertain that my long lost Cereza was at the bottom of some lake, I granted him his final wish, and accepted his permanent resignation.
Luka: You bastard!
Balder: You are of no use to me; however, I am not without dignity. I will allow you to die in the same manner as your father.
Balder: [after having thrown Luka out a window] Well, I guess my plan has gone right out the window. Such a shame that sacrifice had to be made. But if destiny is not fulfilled soon, this tragedy will be repeated ad nauseam. Speaking of tragedy, I suppose you've met Jeanne? While she sealed you away and kept you from trouble, after falling into our hands, she's been incredibly useful. Although her distinct lack of obedience required a bit of mental... Reprogramming. Her tragic end led you directly to me, just as planned. The time for awakening the Left Eye is soon. Fear not, my dear sweet Cereza. That's it, Cereza. Do not fear your fate. Stand tall, my child. Realize your true potential! Cereza, we are one, my child.
Bayonetta: Don't fuck with a witch!
Balder: May Jubileus, the Creator, grace you!
Luka: I've got to give you credit, Bayonetta. You never cease to impress.
Bayonetta: You haven't seen the half of it.
Luka: Oh, I've seen enough... Well, that about wraps it up, huh?
Bayonetta: Not yet.
Cereza: Mummy... Daddy...
Bayonetta: No need to be afraid, little one. The nightmare is over. Everything was just a dream. You're a strong little girl. There is nothing you cannot overcome.
Cereza: Mummy... Did you find it? What you were looking for?
Bayonetta: Yes, I found it. So don't you worry anymore. You just keep your treasure safe too. Sweet dreams, little one. Fly me to the moon and let me play among the stars. Let me see what spring is like on Jupiter and Mars. In other words, hold my hand. In other words, darling...
Cereza: I'm not afraid anymore, Mummy. No matter what... There's nothing I cannot do.
Luka: Bayonetta! What's happening to you!?
Balder: And now it is done. The Right Eye oversees the light, the Left Eye oversees the darkness. Two eyes to oversee the world. It was never the woman known as "Bayonetta" that I set my sights upon. It was you as a child, Cereza, that I sought. For she was the one who saw the world through innocent eyes, and she was the one who could give rise to a new history. It was her energy that could awaken the Left Eye. This has all worked out splendidly. Let us begin, Cereza. The time is at hand. Now the resurrection of Jubileus shall be completed. We are the eyes, overseeing the world. We are the eyes, overseeing a new era... A new reality... To which we will devote ourselves eternally. May Jubileus, the Creator, grace all of its creations!
Jeanne: Thank god. There's still time... The Left Eye, our treasured Left Eye, will never fall into the hands of another! It is the pride of the Umbra Witches!
Balder: Ahh... Jeanne. You've provided me with many blessings. The one and only, authentic Left Eye. Merely seeing it must stir jealousy within you. Your body must yearn to feel a new universe form around it.
Jeanne: I have no intentions of gazing upon the Left Eye. I am here to reclaim my Umbran sister.
Balder: The time has come for Jubileus to return! At last, the Trinity of Realities will know their real ruler, and time will begin anew!
Jeanne: Cereza! Wake up!
Balder: Are you insane!? Light and Dark. Unless both eyes remain, the universe will lose its balance and face another armageddon!
Jeanne: Then this thing should have slept for eternity. Now you must wake up, Cereza! Cereza! Cereza! Damn you! Open your eyes!
Jeanne: Cereza, you aren't the person I sealed away 500 years ago. You have the strength to overcome this and fight. Finish this!
Balder: My, oh my... No one can control Jubileus now. Its power is too intense... Light, dark, human. All the strife, all the struggle... The Trinity of Realities wrapped up in a vortex of creation!
Bayonetta: Rest, my friend. I'm off to get that black cat.
Jeanne: Unbelievable. We managed to stop this abomination and it's still going to destroy the world!
Jeanne: Come now. You're one of a kind. If you die here, who is going to save the world? I'll send you home, even if it kills me... Now let's finish this.
Bayonetta: You and I are going home together! Jeanne, we're both one of a kind!
Jeanne: Now those are the eyes I've been waiting to see.
Jeanne: I'm OK!
Bayonetta: Let's go! Just stay close to me!
Luka: OK. This is getting ridiculous! How do you keep surviving all this!? I bet you're trying to sneak up on me right now... Aren't you, Bayonetta!?
Enzo: Well, no rest for the wicked. But at least she's at peace- back in the box she came from. And I guess I'm gonna have to find a new racket to line my pockets. No bonus for Old Enzo this time. As fuckin' usual...
Rodin: You know how it works with witches, Enzo. They make a deal with the devil, and when they die, the devil gets his due. Ya get sucked down into hell, and wandering around scared shitless for eternity kinda comes with the territory.
Enzo: Why you tellin' me this!? Is this not why we are standing here, praying for her soul to rest in peace!? I better not be out here catchin' a fucking cold if these prayers don't mean nothing!
Rodin: It's nice to think your prayers are worth a damn, isn't it? You made a killing exploiting her. Hell, you never know, she might get lonely and come back to haunt your ass!
Enzo: Haunt me!? Hell can keep her then!
Luka: I said I'd never give up chasing you... I just never thought the chase would end like this. [places large bushes of flowers on Bayonetta's coffin] Rosemary. You said it was a demon repellent. It might help you on the road ahead...
Enzo: [in response to angelic light appearing] Hey... Hey! Wait a second!? What the hell are they coming down here to get her for!?
Jeanne: Of course they'd come for the prize they've been seeking all along.
Luka: Holy shit! You're...
Jeanne: [referring to her nun costume] This looks ridiculous on me! I swear, this is the last time I cosplay.
Rodin: You hear that!? That's your cue!
Jeanne: Will you hurry up!? Don't tell me you fell asleep in that thing again!
Enzo: Hey! What the... You gotta fuckin' be kidding me... You tellin' me she's... Un-be-fucking-lievable!
Bayonetta: Morning! What's with shoving me into this filthy old casket!? And next time, some air holes would be nice. Fewer worms, ideally...
Jeanne: Save the chit-chat for later. We've got work to do.
Luka: Extra Ingenue?
Bayonetta: It has a bit of rosemary. In the language of flowers, rosemary equates to remembrance... Suits me now, doesn't it?
Bayonetta: Let's dance, boys!
The Gates of Hell
Rodin: You bring me enough of these halos and maybe I can buy a ticket to space. Always wanted to be a bald space marine. Heh. What can I do for you anyways?
Rodin: You here for business or pleasure? Either way, I'll hook you up.
Rodin: You really want to make a deal with the devil!? Relax, I'm just fuckin' with ya.
Rodin: Take care of my babies, will ya? Some people may have a thing for the 45s, but to me, these are the real works of art.
Rodin: No matter how much you ask, I'm not puttin' a chainsaw on your arm. So what do you want?
Rodin: Hey, chech this out. Whadya buyin!? Heard that in a game once.
Rodin: Well, well... An Angelic Hymns Gold LP... Got your hands on something awfully rare, haven't ya? That thing is the perfect bait to coax out some of hell's uglies. One note hits their ears, and a damn who's who of Inferno comes pouring out of the inner circles. Then I can use them to breathe life into what I make best... weapons of mass destruction. Tell ya what. You give me that record, and I'll order up something so fiendish, angels will cry at the sight of it. I'll just have to pop down to the tropics for a bit, so take a load off. [enters Inferno; returns] All done. He's a little rude, but he makes up for it with charm. Be nice to him, OK?
Rodin: Another LP? Heh... Workin me to the bone... But no need to pity me, I was bored anyways. Let me go whip some things into shape for ya.
Rodin: This took a bit to pound into shape, but the workmanship's solid. Now go put this thing to good use!
Rodin: It was a close one this time... This bad boy might even be hard for you to get a handle on... You take care of yourself.
Rodin: Made me break a sweat. I gotta give it to my tropical friends. They sure are fun to play around with... So much fun, I brought back a special playmate, just for you!
Rodin: You've got another Angelic LP, huh? Hand it over, then. I'm in a good mood, so I'll take care of it right away.
Rodin: Got my hands on a good one this time. You rarely get to lay eyes on this one, I tell ya what!
Bayonetta: Bring it!
Bayonetta: I've got a fever, and the only cure is more dead angels!
Bayonetta: You want to touch me?
Bayonetta: Your halo is mine!
Bayonetta: Let's dance...
Jeanne: You motherfucker!
Jeanne: Bitch, please.
Bayonetta: Ha ha ha ha ha...
Cereza: Mummy, you're the best!
Jeanne: It's a celebration, bitches.
Bayonetta: I should have been a pole dancer!
Rodin: Heh, heh, heh, heh, heh... bang.
Enzo: Oh, what a day!
