The Boss: I raised you, and loved you, I've given you weapons, taught you techniques, endowed you with knowledge. There's nothing more for me to give you. All that's left for you to take is my life.
Volgin: Kuwabara, Kuwabara.
[Volgin's body sparkles from electric bolts]
Volgin: Ah, what a joyful scene.
The Boss: Colonel Volgin...
Volgin: Welcome to my country, and to my unit.
The Boss: My friends, let us fight together again.
The Fear: I have waited long for this day.
The Pain: We will fight with you once more.
The End: Welcome back, Boss.
The Boss: Now that all five of us are together, it's time we go to the depths of hell itself.
[it begins to rain]
The Boss: It's raining blood. Is he crying?
[ The Sorrow appears near her, then disappears from sight]
The Boss: In 1960 I saw a vision of the ideal future from space. Three years earlier the Soviet Union had succeeded in launching Sputnik, the first manmade satellite in history, into orbit. This came as a huge shock to the United States. In response, America threw everything it had into its own manned space flight project, the Mercury program. Even as the Soviets seemed poised to send their first man into space, America was still experimenting with chimpanzees in rockets. The government wanted human data. So they secretly decided to send a human being into space. I was the one they chose. At the time they didn't have the technology to block out cosmic rays and whoever they sent up would inevitably be exposed to heavy radiation. That's why they chose me. After all, I had already been irradiated once. Of course, you won't find any of this in the history books. I could see the planet as it appeared from space. That's when it finally hit me. Space exploration is nothing but another game in the power struggle between the US and USSR. Politics, economics, the arms race - they're all just arenas for meaningless competition. I'm sure you can see that. But the Earth itself has no boundaries. No East, no West, no Cold War. And the irony of it is, the United States and the Soviet Union are spending billions on their space programs and the missile race only to arrive at the same conclusion. In the 21st century everyone will be able to see that we are all just inhabitants of a little celestial body called Earth. A world without communism or capitalism... that is the world I wanted to see. But reality continued to betray me.
The Boss: Life's end...
[drops the Davy Crockett]
The Boss: Isn't it beautiful? It's almost tragic. When life ends, it gives off a final lingering aroma. Light is but a farewell gift from the darkness to those on their way to die. I've been waiting, Snake, for a long time. Waiting for your birth, your growth, and the finality of today.
The Boss: Snake, you were an atomic test subject, weren't you? On Bikini Atoll. That's part of the reason I was drawn to you. You and I are alike. We're both slowly being eaten away by the karma of others. We'll never have the chance to die peacefully of old age. We have no tomorrow.
The Boss: [hands Snake the Philosopher's Legacy, as she lays dying] Take this... keep it safe... It's our only hope...
[hands Snake her Patriot machine gun]
Naked Snake: A Patriot? Why are you giving me this?
The Boss: Jack... or should I say... Snake... you're a wonderful man. Kill me... Kill me now! Do it! There's only room for one Boss. And one Snake.
The Boss: Look at this scar. This is proof that I was once a mother. I gave up my body and my child for my country. There is nothing left inside me now. Nothing at all. No hatred, not even regret. And yet sometimes at night, I can still feel the pain creeping up inside me. Slithering through my body, like a snake.
The Boss: One must die and one must live. No victory, no defeat. The survivor will carry on the fight. It is our destiny... The one who survives will inherit the title of Boss. And the one who inherits the title of Boss will face an existence of endless battle. I'll give you ten minutes. In ten minutes, MiGs will come and bomb the hell out of this place. If you can beat me in less than ten minutes, you'll be able to escape in time.
[loads her Patriot] The Boss: Let's make this the greatest ten minutes of our lives, Jack!
The Boss: It was November 1, 1951. I was in the Nevada desert participating in atomic testing. The name "Nevada" is derived from Spanish... "covered in snow," "white as snow." And snow is exactly what I saw in the that Nevada desert. It froze my blood white.
Naked Snake: Boss, why are you doing this?
The Boss: Why? To make the world one again.
The Boss: You're a soldier! Finish your mission! Prove your loyalty! Face me.
