Hello Teacup Batteries Not Included

We have the Technology is a mission in Saints Row IV.

If we want to shut down the simulation, we'll need to build a key
— Quest description

Overview[edit | edit source]

This mission involves creation of a "key" used to disrupt the simulation. Kinzie says that she needs a CPU, six Memory Modules, and six gravity inhibitors.

The CPU is located in one of the crates at Sierra Point Island. Johnny Gat assists Playa during this section, attacking enemies as they get close.

The Memory Modules are in one of the shield generators at one of the towers. There are three generators, each one providing two modules. While obtaining the modules, Johnny assists in a helicopter.

Once six memory modules are collected, Zin forces try setting up a force field at the north dock. After reaching the dock in time, three generators must be destroyed in order to retrieve the gravity inhibitors.

Johnny Gat arrives, but his helicopter crashes. Shaundi arrives by helicopter and picks up Playa.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The title "We have the Technology", refers to the opening catch-phrase from TV series 6 Million Dollar Man.
  • With the objective "Follow Johnny Gat", he may be glitched during this mission and hiding underneath one of the helipads at Sierra Point. Restarting the mission at the check point fixes the issue, allowing a helicopter pickup.

Prologue[edit | edit source]

Phone Call: "Ben King's a genius. We managed to figured out how we can overload the simulation completely."
Playa - Female 1: "When did you have time to do that?"
Playa - Female 2: "And when did this meeting of the minds occur?"
Playa - Female 3: "And you figured this out, when exactly?"
Playa - Male 1: "When did you two figure this out?"
Playa - Male 2: "When did you find the time to work that out?"
Playa - Male 3: "Heh. I'm trying to picture big Ben on your wee computer. When was this?"
Nolan North: "When did you two figure this out?"
Phone Call: "Just before I was kidnapped. Probably why Zinyak went after me, actually."
Playa - Female 1: "So what do my two biggest brains recommend?"
Playa - Female 2: "Just what are you proposing?"
Playa - Female 3: "Care to spell out your master plan?"
Playa - Male 1: "So how do we do this?"
Playa - Male 2: "So what's the plan?"
Playa - Male 3: "And what do you two propose we do now?"
Nolan North: "So how do we do this?"
Phone Call: "If I can hack directly into the main system, then I can bring down the walls between simulations and force Zinyak to divert an enormous amount of resources to keeping it from crashing all together."
Playa - Female 1: "But... we want it all to crash, right?"
Playa - Female 2: "I thought we wanted it to crash."
Playa - Female 3: "Ain't the whole point to let it crash?"
Playa - Male 1: "Don't we want it to crash?"
Playa - Male 2: "We do want it to crash, though. Don't we?"
Playa - Male 3: "But a crash would be a good thing, yes?"
Nolan North: "Don't we want it to crash?"
Phone Call: "Oh it will, he won't be able to stop it. But for now what I need from you is parts. For a key."
Playa - Female 1: "You mean like a house key, or a car key?"
Playa - Female 2: "But a key is a one-part item, no?"
Playa - Female 3: "I don't follow. Keys don't have parts."
Playa - Male 1: "A key? Keys don't have parts."
Playa - Male 2: "What, like, one of those machines that grinds keys?"
Playa - Male 3: "What sort of keys do you have, Kinzie? Mine don't come in parts."
Nolan North: "A key? Keys don't have parts."
Phone Call: "Ach, not that kind of key. Anyway, Gat will be there to help you. Remember, this is important."

Playa - Female 1: "Made it."
Playa - Female 2: "Ready for more, Kinzie."
Playa - Female 3: "I got there in one piece."
Playa - Male 1: "I think I made it."
Playa - Male 2: "Okay, I'm there."
Playa - Male 3: "I'm here, Kinzie."
Nolan North: "I think I made it."
Kinzie: "Good, they've abandoned powering up the shield. Just destroy those generators and you should find the gravity inhibitors."
Playa - Female 1: "Okay, wait. These look just like the last generators. So why didn't I grab their inhibitors. And shouldn't something called a "gravity inhibitor" float like a balloon?"
Playa - Female 2: "Tell me, Kinzie, if these have "gravity inhibitors", should they not hover or something? And why did I not take some from the last generators -- they were identical!"
Playa - Female 3: "Whoa, whoa, whoa... Hang on, sugar. These look just like the last ones. So why didn't I find your "gravity inhibitors" back there? And shouldn't these things float or something?"
Playa - Male 1: "Hold on, if these generators have "gravity inhibitors" then A, why aren't they floating and B, why the hell didn't I get these from the last generators? They look exactly the same!"
Playa - Male 2: "Wait a minute, these generators look just like the last ones. Why didn't I just grab your "gravity inhibitors" from them?"
Playa - Male 3: "I call bullshit, Kinzie. These look just like the last ones. Why didn't I find gravity inhibitors in them? Shouldn't I be looking for generators that hover?"
Nolan North: "Hold on, if these generators have "gravity inhibitors" then A, why aren't they floating and B, why the hell didn't I get these from the last generators? They look exactly the same!"
Kinzie: "Because obviously the last generators didn't have them since they were on floating platforms."
Playa - Female 1: "Sure, okay. Still doesn't explain the balloon part."
Playa - Female 2: "Obviously. And why don't they hover?"
Playa - Female 3: "And why don't they float...?"
Playa - Male 1: "Fine, and the not floating part?"
Playa - Male 2: "If you say so. Hey why don't these ones float then?"
Playa - Male 3: "Right. Obviously. And why does this not hover?"
Nolan North: "Fine, and the not floating part?"
Kinzie: "Because... they're not turned on?"
Johnny Gat: "She doesn't know, does she?"
Playa - Female 1: "Not that she'll admit it."
Playa - Female 2: "She usually knows enough."
Playa - Female 3: "We're all just playing this by ear."
Playa - Male 1: "Nope."
Playa - Male 2: "Hell no."
Playa - Male 3: "Well fuck no."
Nolan North: "Nope."
— "Arrive at Pier"
Kinzie: "You should be able to find generators on the floating platforms around the towers. Destroy them and take their modules."
Johnny Gat: "Whoa, we're breaking pinatas now?"
Kinzie: "No, the generators are made up of a lot of different parts. We just need one thing from them and the fastest way to get them out is to destroy them."
Johnny Gat: "And that doesn't damage the module? That doesn't make any sense."
Kinzie: "It's a simulation!"
— "Arrive at Tower"
Playa - Female 1: "We have what we need, so..."
Playa - Female 2: "All done here. Let us--"
Playa - Female 3: "Shopping list is all checked off, so let's..."
Playa - Male 1: "Okay, we're done here. Let's..."
Playa - Male 2: "We got what we came for, let's get the fuck..."
Playa - Male 3: "Now let's take our loot and get the hell--"
Nolan North: "Okay, we're done here. Let's..."
Johnny Gat: "Yo dawg, this shit's on fire. I have to set it down somewhere."
Playa - Female 1: "C'mon, Johnny, we just got you back. Can you land in one piece?"
Playa - Female 2: "Merde. Can you see a clear place to land?"
Playa - Female 3: "Johnny, I just got you back. Y'think you can keep from dying all over again?"
Playa - Male 1: "Shit. Can you find a safe place to take it down?"
Playa - Male 2: "Shit. Think you can land it safely?"
Playa - Male 3: ""Yo dawg"...? You have been gone awhile. Can you keep from dying again, mate?"
Nolan North: "Shit. Can you find a safe place to take it down?"
Johnny Gat: "It's barely responding, but yeah, I think I can."
Playa - Female 1: "Set down anywhere, Gat. I'll get to you. Kinzie, keep an eye on us!"
Playa - Female 2: "Just land it, Johnny. Kinzie, maintain contact."
Playa - Female 3: "Then get down safe. Kinzie's got our back."
Playa - Male 1: "I'll keep up with you, Johnny. Kinzie, keep your eyes on us."
Playa - Male 2: "I'll get to you, Johnny. Kinzie, don't lose us."
Playa - Male 3: "Set her down, John. Kinzie, stay on the line."
Nolan North: "I'll keep up with you, Johnny. Kinzie, keep your eyes on us."
Kinzie: "Right."

Playa - Male 1: "Johnny. Johnny, are you all right?"
Playa - Male 2: "Johnny, talk to me!"
Playa - Male 3: "You okay, partner?"
Nolan North: "Johnny. Johnny, are you all right?"
Johnny Gat: "Yeah, I'm fine."
Playa - Female 1: "Good. We've got plenty more aliens to kill."
Playa - Female 2: "Used another of your nine lives, eh?"
Playa - Female 3: "Don't scare me like that."
Playa - Male 1: "Thank god."
Playa - Male 2: "That's a relief."
Playa - Male 3: "Let's not do that again."
Nolan North: "Thank god."
Johnny Gat: "Seems like I picked a hell of a spot to crash, though."
Shaundi: "Boss, Johnny, are you there?"
Johnny Gat: "We're still kicking."
Shaundi: "I'm only a few seconds out. Don't worry, I'm not letting anything happen to Johnny... to you two."
Johnny Gat: "Eh, it's nothing we can't handle."
Kinzie: "Once Shaundi gets there, make sure the area's clear so she can land."
Playa - Female 1: "Will do."
Playa - Female 2: "Already in progress."
Playa - Female 3: "You bet."
Playa - Male 1: "Already working on it."
Playa - Male 2: "On it."
Playa - Male 3: "Right away."
Nolan North: "Already working on it."
— "Gat Down"
Johnny Gat: "Dammit, I'm not going to make it. This thing's going down."
Playa - Female 1: "Crash land if you have to!"
Playa - Female 2: "Make it work!"
Playa - Female 3: "Dammit!"
Playa - Male 1: "Just hang in there, Gat!"
Playa - Male 2: "Just do it!"
Playa - Male 3: "Any landing you walk away from..."
Nolan North: "Just hang in there, Gat!"
Kinzie: "Hold on, I'm sending in Shaundi to pick you guys up."
— "Gat Going Down"
Kinzie: "There it is. Just be careful with it, all right?"
Playa - Female 1: "I'm always careful! Well, usually careful... well I mean there's been a few... fuck it, it'll be fine."
Playa - Female 2: "When am I ever not careful?"
Playa - Female 3: "Relax, hon. We won't eff up your CPU."
Playa - Male 1: "It'll be fine."
Playa - Male 2: "Yes, mom."
Playa - Male 3: "Handle with care, John. Or else."
Nolan North: "It'll be fine."
— "Get CPU"
Playa - Female 1: "That's all the modules, Kinzie."
Playa - Female 2: "I have the last one now."
Playa - Female 3: "Found the last one!"
Playa - Male 1: "I think that's the last one."
Playa - Male 2: "Think I got the last one."
Playa - Male 3: "All done. What's next?"
Nolan North: "I think that's the last one."
Kinzie: "Okay, the gravity inhibitors are at the dock, though it looks like they're trying to put a force field up around the area. Get moving fast before they block you out!"
Johnny Gat: "Don't wait for me, I'll be right behind you."
Playa - Female 1: "Check."
Playa - Female 2: "Understood."
Playa - Female 3: "I hear ya."
Playa - Male 1: "On it."
Playa - Male 2: "Got it."
Playa - Male 3: "Roger that."
Nolan North: "On it."
— "Head to Pier"
Kinzie: "Next head to the nearby tower. That's where the memory modules are."
Johnny Gat: "Right on. I'll grab one of these assault choppers and meet you there, boss. Just don't kill everyone before I get a few shots in."
Playa - Female 1: "Johnny, I got a long way to go before I catch up to your body count."
Playa - Female 2: "I will try to exercise some restraint."
Playa - Female 3: "No promises."
Playa - Male 1: "Hey, you know I can't control myself sometimes."
Playa - Male 2: "You know how I am once I get going..."
Playa - Male 3: "In an assault chopper, a few shots are all you need."
Nolan North: "Hey, you know I can't control myself sometimes."
— "Head to Tower"
Johnny Gat: "Now this is my idea of a good time."
Johnny Gat: "Who needs super powers when you got a chopper?"
Johnny Gat: "Keep away from the boss, assholes."
— "Johnny Shooting Platforms"
The main parts I'll need to assemble the key are the central processing unit, memory modules, and gravity inhibitors. I've located a CPU at the old Steelport Guard Armory. While you get that, I'll look around for the other stuff.
— Kinzie, "Mission Brief"

Playa - Female 1: "You mind telling us what this thing looks like?"
Playa - Female 2: "Do you have a picture of this CPU? I mean, what does it look like?"
Playa - Female 3: "Might help to know what this processor looks like."
Playa - Male 1: "You know what this thing we're going after looks like?"
Playa - Male 2: "Can you describe what Johnny and I should be looking for?"
Playa - Male 3: "Care to tell us what this unit looks like?"
Nolan North: "You know what this thing we're going after looks like?"
Johnny Gat: "Some computery tech thing. How should I know?"
Kinzie: "It's a central processing unit. It's for... you know what, I'll point it out when you get close. Jeez..."
Johnny Gat: "Works for me."
— "Mission Start"
Playa - Female 1: "Okay, I think I got it."
Playa - Female 2: "Do I have the correct module?"
Playa - Female 3: "Did I find the right doodad?"
Playa - Male 1: "Is this what I'm looking for?"
Playa - Male 2: "This the right piece?"
Playa - Male 3: "This the right one?"
Nolan North: "Is this what I'm looking for?"
Kinzie: "Yep. There should be two more generators to destroy. Look around for them."
— "Pick Up First Module"
Playa - Female 1: "We're here, Kinzie, but I'm not sure where to start looking."
Playa - Female 2: "Hello Kinzie, we are on site. Now where do we find the processor?"
Playa - Female 3: "Kinzie? Me and Gat are in. Now where's that... doohicky?"
Playa - Male 1: "All right Kinzie, we're here. Now where is this unit thingy?"
Playa - Male 2: "Kinzie, we're in. Where the CPU at?"
Playa - Male 3: "Listen, Kinzie? Gat and I are on site, but we're not sure where to begin our search."
Nolan North: "All right Kinzie, we're here. Now where is this unit thingy?"
Kinzie: "In one of the crates around the armory. They're welded shut though, so use your telekinesis to pull the doors off."
Johnny Gat: "I thought you knew where it was?"
Johnny Gat: "Okay, okay, no need to get touchy."
Playa - Female 1: "She's always like this, Johnny. Get used to it."
Playa - Female 2: "You'll grow accustomed to her, Johnny."
Playa - Female 3: "My life and welcome to it."
Playa - Male 1: "Believe me, Johnny, you'll get used to it."
Playa - Male 2: "Don't worry, Gat, she'll grow on you."
Playa - Male 3: "Touchy is her middle name, mate."
Nolan North: "Believe me, Johnny, you'll get used to it."
— "Reach Armory Island"
Johnny Gat: "Area's all clear."
Shaundi: "All right, landing this thing."
Playa - Female 1: "Let's deliver this shit to Kinzie... she's a little cranky after the poodle skirt incident."
Playa - Female 2: "Thank you Shaundi. We're good to go."
Playa - Female 3: "Let's get outta here."
Playa - Male 1: "Let's get out of here."
Playa - Male 2: "Time to go."
