Voxophones


This page lists the location followed by the transcript for all 80 Voxophones in the game.

Chapter 02 - The Welcome Center


Voxophone 001 - Love the Sinner

Once you are allowed to leave the capsule, take a left straight through the archway and then another left at the massive statue into a small chapel. Here must you enter the tiny room to the right to pick up the game's very first Voxophone.

"Love the Prophet, because he loves the sinner. Love the sinner, because he is you. Without the sinner, what need is there for a redeemer? Without sin, what grace has forgiveness?"
--Lady Comstock, April the 1st, 1893

Voxophone 002 - Undeserving

When Booker initially arrives in Columbia after the baptism, look behind the counter inside the Hudson's Clothing store.

"And then, the archangel showed a vision: a city, lighter than air. I asked her, 'Why do you show this to me, archangel? I'm not a strong man. I'm not a righteous man. I am not a holy man.' And she told me the most remarkable thing: 'You're right, Prophet. But if grace is within the grasp of one such as you, how can anyone else not see it in themselves?'"
-- Zachary Hale Comstock, September the 9th, 1893

Voxophone 003 - Everyman, All at Once

Look for a shop called Chas A. White Supply from which you can head to the nearby garden to find a Voxophone on the table under the umbrella.

"One man goes into the waters of baptism. A different man comes out, born again. But who is that man who lies submerged? Perhaps that swimmer is both sinner and saint, until he is reveals unto the eyes of man."
--Zachary Hale Comstock, March the 29th, 1911

Voxophone 004 - For I Am Lonely, Too

At the Path to the Scrolls, follow the objective marker when you're done scavenging for loot, and you'll eventually be told to look at something. On the bench beneath the statue where this sequence occurs is a Voxophone.

Madame Lutece-- I have read all of your books on the sciences. Mama says, 'it's not a fit occupation for a lady,' but I think she's jealous of our cleverness. Is it true that only you are allowed to visit the girl in the tower? If the Lamb is lonely, too, I should like to meet her, as we would have much in common. --Warmest regards, Constance"
-- Constance Field, August the 1st, 1902

Voxophone 005 - Solution to Your Problems

At Raffle Square when the Columbia guards become hostile, pick up the Voxophone tucked between a pair of cages next to the Vigor vending machine (sells Possession Aid for $50), just before you climb onto the police barge that has a turret on it.

"I told you, Comstock-- you sell 'em paradise, and the customers expect cherubs for every chore! No menials in God's kingdom! Well, I've a man in Georgia who'll lease us as many Negro convicts as you can board! Why, you can say they're simple souls, in penance for rising above their station. Whatever eases your conscience, I suppose."
--Jeremiah Fink, September the 16th, 1893

Chapter 04 - Comstock Center Rooftops


Voxophone 006 - Half a Jew

On the counter in the Blue Ribbon Restaurant Kitchen.

"Father Comstock called on me today to write his biography. Me! The man pays for exactly 100 pages, in advance. Now, I'm half a Jew when I smell silver, so I say, I say: 'Father, your flock would pay for a thousand, you know. Why settle for less?' And then, the Prophet looks to me and says, 'One hundred will suffice, as I know how it ends.'"
--Ed Gaines, March the 1st, 1912

Voxophone 007 - Otis' Nimble Fingers

Inside the locked treasure chest in the Lansdowne Residence bedroom.

"Otis works up at the lodge part-time. He took this box from one of their secret ceremonies, and I know for sure there is something dear inside. Problem is, Otis is more fool than not. He didn't bother to also secure a key from the feathered brothers to open the damn."
--Byron Corswold, June the 23rd, 1912

Voxophone 008 - A New Hunt

On the small stage at the Montgomery Residence backyard.

"Comstock came by the wagon at dawn. Man was just...he just transfixed by my trophy scalps. Asked about the white ones, there. I said, 'Well, sir-- if your quarry dwells in the jungle, and beds down with the local color, why split hairs?' [Laughs] Not a chuckle out of him. Either he ain't seen a man go native, or maybe...maybe too many. Anyhow, now he's got me huntin' down this 'Daisy Fitzroy.' Hope he don't expect me to stuff and mount her."
--Preston E. Downs, June the 29th, 1912

Voxophone 009 - The Gift of the Emancipator

In the cultist base's (Fraternal Order of the Raven) tavern. Check on the counter.

"And when the Angel Columbia gave unto the Founders the tools to build the new Eden, they did so without hesitation. For 85 years, they prepared the way of the Lord. But when the Great Apostate came, he brought war with him, and the fields of Eden were soaked with the blood of brothers. The only emancipation he had to offer was death."
--Zachary Hale Comstock, April the 14th, 1905

Voxophone 010 - The Lie of the Emancipator

Head for the chapel and face off with a rather large army of cultists. Once the room is clear, take the Voxophone on one of the pews

"What exactly was the Great Emancipator emancipating the Negro from? From his daily bread. From the nobility of honest work. From wealthy patrons who sponsored them from cradle to grave. From clothing and shelter. And what have they done with their freedom? Why, go to Finkton, and you shall find out. No animal is born free, except the white man. And it is our burden to care for the rest of creation."
--Zachary Hale Comstock, April the 14th, 1905

Voxophone 011 - Symbols of Our Lady

At the cultist base (Fraternal Order of the Raven), follow the objective arrow to the elevator and riding it down to another floor. There, enter the room across from the vending machine. Look at the desk for a Voxophone.

"Sweet mother of Columbia, why do we worship three symbols in your memory? We worship the sword, so that we might avenge you. We worship the raven, so that we might cover the city with eyes. We worship the coffin, because it symbolizes the weight of failure."
--First Zealot, January the 6th, 1912

Chapter 05 - Monument Island Gateway and Tower


Voxophone 012 - Another Ark for Another Time

Monument Island Gateway. On the desk of the maintenance office that you can dismount on from the sky-line.

"'And the Lord saw the wickedness of man was great. And He repented He had made man on the Earth.' Rain! Forty days and forty night of the stuff. And He left not a thing that walked alive. You see, my friends, even God is entitled to a do-over. And what is Columbia if not another Ark, for another time?"
--Zachary Hale Comstock, September the 9th, 1893

Voxophone 013 - Tiger by the Tail

Monument Tower. Grab the hook above the gate to get inside the facility. At the lobby (where there is a large angel statue in the middle), turn to the left checking the lockers for a Voxophone.

"I guess even in a restricted area, these crackers need someone to clean floors, hm? Hmph. Those politicians and scientists don't bother 'bout what they say 'round me, because I'm some half-lettered colored boy. But I can tell they scared out of their wits by that thing they got locked upstairs, yessir. They got a tiger by the tail, and they don't know whether to hang on...or run."
--Ty Bradley, April the 8th, 1912

Voxophone 014 - To: R. Thompson Re: Fuses

Monument Tower. Just past the first set of doors is a hallway with a giant siphon machine. Proceed past the door behind it and turn toward the first passage to your left. The airtight steel door leads to an exam room that houses a Voxophone.

"Uh, Mr. Thompson, sir, I replaced the entire fuse bank as asked, and the lights were all in working order last...last night...there they go again. We go through boxes of fuses every day as of late, just in the Siphon alone, I don't...Oh! Oh, Lord, something's happening! What-- [Screams]"
--Ty Bradley, July the 3rd, 1912

Voxophone 015 - A Reward Deferred

Monument Tower. Go ahead and check out the other two rooms, before heading straight through another set of double doors further down the corridor. Snag the Voxophone from a desk inside.

"It is one thing to imagine one's future. And another to see it. For I have seen the seeds of fire that will prepare the Sodom below for the coming of the Lord. But Elizabeth shall sow those seeds, not I. I will fall before the job is done...but she shall take up my mantle. The Lord is calling me home. I feel His love in ever tumor, because they are the train which takes me to his station. And I go with joy, knowing that Elizabeth will take my earthly place. But the False Shepherd is coming to lead my Lamb astray. I will not board that train until she is safe from his deceptions."
--Zachary Hale Comstock, July the 5th, 1912

Voxophone 016 - The Source of Her Power

Continue through the level until you reach the third observation chamber that is on top of some metal stairs. There is another Voxophone on the chair next to the lever.

"What makes the girl different? I suspect is has less to do with what she is, and rather more with what she is not. A small part of her remains from where she came. It would seem the universe does not like its peas mixed with its porridge."
--Rosalind Lutece, September the 5th, 1909

Chapter 07 - Battleship Bay


Voxophone 017 - Born in the River

As soon as Booker is back on his feet, head to the far end of the beach towards the back, where a red and white striped wagon is parked. Look under the wagon to find a Voxophone.

"The Prophet may know how his own biography's going to end -- but I can scarcely fathom how I'm going to start it. Other than that kid's stuff you get at the Hall of Heroes, anything prior to his baptism was, and here I quote, hang on, 'left on the riverside.' They'll call me a plagiarist, but I'm going to spend the first 30 pages regurgitating scripture."
--Ed Gaines, March the 6th, 1912

Voxophone 018 - Heaven

After Elizabeth picks the lock for the door leading to the office, loot the place and exit through the other door to a corridor. Follow this one all the way to the end, entering a storage room just past the vending machine. There is a Voxophone in the basket here along with a Gear on the table.

"When I first see Columbia, that sky was the brightest, bluest sky that ever was. Seemed like...heaven. Then your eyes adjusted to the light and you saw that sea of white faces lookin' hard back at you..."
--Daisy Fitzroy, February the 12th, 1912

Voxophone 019 - A Dog's Loyalty

Go into the amusement center via the door ahead. Three kinetoscopes from the previous chapters are here just in case you didn't view them before. An don't forget to pick up a Voxophone from the really pristine men's rest room.

"As a boy, I had a dog named Bill. And like all dogs, Bill was a loyal friend. If we had not fed him, Bill would have been loyal. If we had struck him, Bill would have been loyal. Only when the colored man can make that claim will he take his place in society."
--Zachary Hale Comstock, December the 18th, 1899

Voxophone 020 - Take Her Alive

Before you continue past the ticket station, visit the office opposite of where the objective arrow is telling you to go. You'll find a Voxophone on the desk inside.

"This is the moment we trained for. The False Shepherd is here. The day was not exact, but...the Prophet's sight proves out again. The specimen must be taken alive. If she dies, I suspect they will give us to the bird. And whatever pieces it leaves behind will bear no names...That was cigarette number six. This waiting is insufferable."
--Esther Mailer, July the 6th, 1912

Voxophone 021 - The Golden Path to Heaven

Head down to the basement and search the back rooms for a Voxophone.

"As the months and years turned to memories, so did the men of Congress turn to righteousness. And through the technology of men, the dollars of Washington, the Lord worked his will upon Columbia and raised her high above the Sodom below."
--Zachary Hale Comstock, September the 9th, 1893

Chapter 08 - Soldier's Field


Voxophone 022 - A Place in the World

Check the metal gate next to the Tesla coil and watch the device burn out. Turn left down the hallway from this spot to find a door with a lock that can be picked. Grab some lockpicks on the floor nearby and have Elizabeth unlock the room for you. Take the Voxophone from the locker in the room full of Carbines.

"Days at Comstock House was simple. Hard work, sure-- but simple. Wringin' the linens, scrubbing the floors...Lady Comstock, she even had a kind word, now and then. Almost enough to make me think I had a place in their world. God made foolish girls so HE could have something to play with."
--Daisy Fitzroy, February the 12th, 1912

Voxophone 023 - I Am His Mirror

Enter Dimwit & Duke's Ice Cream Shop and snag the Voxophone off the table.

"And when I came to Washington, there were few in Congress who saw my vision for Columbia. But it is the burden of the Prophet to bring the wicked to righteousness. For what am I, if not a mirror to reflect the face of God?"
--Zachary Hale Comstock, September the 9th, 1893

Voxophone 024 - Viewing the Infinite

Check the steps behind the counter of Founder's Books.

"When I was a girl, I dreamt of standing in a room looking at a girl who was and was not myself, who stood looking at another girl, who was and was not myself. My mother took this for a nightmare. I saw it as the beginning of a career in physics."
--Rosalind Lutece, August the 10th, 1890

Chapter 09 - Hall of Heroes (En Route)


Voxophone 025 - Never Seen the Face

Begin by heading straight to a bunch of crates at the other end of the room and pick up the Bucking Bronco Vigor. You will also want thoroughly explore this area in an effort to stock up on lock picks. Other freebies are a bonus of course. There is locked door (labeled Employees Only) that you can pick open for a Voxophone and a Gear which are defended by a gun turret.

"I served two-score years of soldiering. And every heathen land I've known is less peopled for my passing. I hated no special enemy. Until now. Comstock. He's made a vaudeville travesty of my battles, and cast himself as the white knight. I called him out over it, and he stripped me of my rank. That man has never seen the savage face of war. But he will."
--Captain Cornelius Slate, May the 30th, 1912

Voxophone 026 - A True Soldier

By the railing on the second floor of the Tickets building is this Voxophone.

God makes all kinds of soldiers, but he only made one Cornelius Slate. My father followed him up San Juan Hill, through the legations in Peking, and, as he put it, 'through, the order was given.' At todays muster, Slate asked me if I was Sergeant Monroe's daughter. I said, 'Yes, sir, I am.' Slate said, 'Your father always wanted a son. I hope the fool has wisdom enough to recognize his good fortune.'
--Lance Corporal Vivian Monroe, April the 10th, 1911

Voxophone 027 - Vox Contraband Inventory

Staked to the cupboard of The Fellow Traveler tavern's kitchen is this Voxophone.

Manley: "Got a tip there were contraband guns hidden in the Fellow Traveler. Didn't find 'em, but -- funny thing -- we found some old uniforms under the floorboards from the war. Took guesses as to why they were there but-- [Door Opens] Who's there? You're Slate, right? Sir? Put the guns down!" [Gunfire] [Screams]
Slate: "Did you hear that, Comstock? That is the sound you have never heard -- the sound of a soldier's end. Come to your 'Hall of Heroes.' Prove me a liar."
--Sergeant Leander Manley, July the 6th, 1912

Voxophone 028 - Their Sun is Setting

Inside the secret room in The Fellow Traveler. The passage is opened with the Code Book.

"The one thing people need to learn is that fear is the antidote to fear. I don't want to be a part of their world. I don't want to be a part of their culture, their politics, their people. The sun is setting on their world, and soon enough, all they gon' see...is the dark."
--Daisy Fitzroy, May the 1st, 1912

Voxophone 029 - A Final Stand

Follow the objective arrow to the sky-line control, pull the lever and wait for the cargo to clear so you can grab the line. Ride the rails up to thw Hall of Heroes station. Once there, search inside the red trolley for a Voxophone.

"Veterans! You shed your hearts' blood for Columbia, lost limb and viscera in the godless Orient! Comstock did nothing! And yet-- look up! Whose image squats above you, even now? At every angle an insult! If the Prophet would make a painted whore of our past, what fresh rape does our future hold? Let us now make our stand, and fill yonder hall with true Heroes!"
--Captain Cornelius Slate, July the 6th, 1912

Chapter 10 - Hall of Heroes Interior


Voxophone 030 - Comrades of Necessity

For starters, go around behind the counter and enter the ticket booth (the one with a corpse) to score a Voxophone from the table in the back.

"The Fitzroy woman and her Vox are my comrades...but only of necessity. I doubt all the men who reddened Caesar's toga would still be seen breaking bread together in peacetime. With Comstock gone, my men's past deeds will be sacred -- and they will claim the spoils due them. I need not live to see it."
--Captain Cornelius Slate, July the 6th, 1912

Voxophone 031 - Unconditional

Follow the objective arrow to the First Lady's Memorial. In the area called Transport of the Child, you'll spot a hairpin-locked door. Have Elizabeth pick it open to reach The Murder of Our Lady area where you can pick up a Voxophone in the sitting room (the one with the painting).

"To those who loved me, I was the most generous of souls. There was no pain I would deny them. No betrayal I would not gladly give. And when I had scorched the hearts of all who loved me, the Prophet said, 'There is nothing you can do for which I will not forgive you, for God has granted me sight, and through His eyes, even you are loved.'"
--Lady Comstock, April the 1st, 1893

Voxophone 032 - A Soldier's Death

Hall of Heroes Gift Shop. After the fight at the Courtyard, face the Slate's message on the wall and turn left toward an open door. In that workshop Voxophone

"My men and I are doomed, doomed as noble Custer was at Little Big Horn. But we shell not yield to Comstock and his tin soldiers. But my scout has seen him...Booker DeWitt is coming here, to the Hall! DeWitt...we called him the White Injun of Wounded Knee, for all the grisly trophies he claimed. A man such as he...might just grant us the peace we seek."
--Captain Cornelius Slate, July the 6th, 1912

Voxophone 033 - Calling You Out

Once you get on the sky-lines over Soldier's Field, dismount on the hotel balcony with a dead Tesla coil. Power it up to enter the bedroom and secure the Voxophone and another Gear.

"Ol' Preston is a sportin' man, Miss Fitzroy. I won't steal up on ya while you slumber like these Vox boys here, with their pigstickers..." [Pleading] [Gunshot] "That's one scalp to me." [Screaming] [Gunshot] "That's two. Now, when you hear this, I want you to square your affairs, and come die in the sight of the poets. You'll need a white man's weapon-- give this a try."
--Preston E. Downs, July the 5th, 1912

Chapter 12 - Beggar's Wharf


Voxophone 034 - God's Blueprint

Starting from Finkton Docks, enter the Delivery Center to your left and grab the Voxophone on the floor between a pair of desks.

"Samuel always thought that the pew on Sunday went hand in hand with the desk on Monday. "Science is the slow revelation of God's blueprint." After two years in the Lamb's tower on the Monument Island, he took ill with cancer of the stomach. I prayed to the Prophet, and the Prophet delivered unto us a miracle through his servant. Fink. I do not know if I will ever get used to a husband bound in a skeleton of metal, but...better a Handyman than a dead one."
-- Hattie Gerst, April the 19th, 1908

Voxophone 035 - Shame of My Service

Keep pursuing Elizabeth through the harmless dimensional tears, and once she gets nabbed, check the desks behind the partition on the left side to find a Voxophone.

They called Slate a monster and a traitor. I know the men who died in the Hall of Heroes with Captain Slate. There is no shame to be counted in their number. The shame lies to we who assembled outside the hall. Though we were not the ones who fell, I feel only envy for those who perished under his banner.
--Lance Corporal Vivian Monroe, July the 7th, 1912

Voxophone 036 - A Product Like Any Other

Finkton Proper. In the office behind the reception desk.

"The truth is, I don't have a lot of time for all that prophecy nonsense. I tell you, belief is...is just a commodity. And old Comstock, well, he does produce. But, like any tradesman, he's obliged to barter his product for the earthly ones. You see, one does not raise a barn on song alone. No sir! Why, that's Fink timber, a Fink hammer, and Fink's hand to swing it. He needs me-- lest he soil his own."
--Jeremiah Fink, March the 27th, 1893

Voxophone 037 - Seed of a Lie

Follow the objective marker and have Elizabeth unlock the door to the underground station. Kill all the hostiles among them is a Motorized Patriot. Once clear, head toward the elevator and check Slate's green locker to the right to find another Voxophone.

I hold in my hand the private journal of Comstock's wife. It puts the lie to this "Miracle Child" nonsense. She loved the child not. It seems the sainted lady would have preferred to let the "seed of the Prophet" just...dry out on the bedsheets...
-- Captain Cornelius Slate, June the 17th, 1912

Chapter 14 - Plaza of Zeal


Voxophone 038 - We've Need of a Shepherd

In the "lobby" before entering the actual Gunsmith Shop, you'll find a Voxophone on the counter.

I have a pressing need to speak to this so-called "False Shepherd" stirring up so much trouble. We got enough problems without this damn fool shooting up the city and blamin' it all on the Vox. Though, if he's amiable...yeah...yeah, he might be just the fella we need for out...immediate concerns.
--Daisy Fitzroy, July the 6th, 1912

Voxophone 039 - The Invisible Color

Explore the rest of the plaza while keeping a look out in the air for a line floating cargo, follow that to a stockpile of logs. Leaning on the table saw here is a Voxophone.

One day, ain't nobody notice me. Then they I done for Lady Comstock, and, well-- everybody noticed me. I head to Finkton, and I hide. I hide deep. The more they look, deeper I go. Only think a colored child can count on is the fact they invisible.
--Daisy Fitzroy, February the 12th, 1912

Voxophone 040 - Changing My Tune

Good Time Club. Take the backstage exit to a dressing room for a Voxophone.

I had thought you a fool, dear brother. When you told me that you heard wonderful music trumpetting from holes in the thin air. I began to doubt your mental integrity. But not only have you made your fortune from these doodads, you have lit the path for me as well.
--Jeremiah Fink, August the 12th, 1894

Voxophone 041 - His Design for Cruelty

Good Time Club. In the basement, continue past the interrogation room afterward and pick up the Voxophone off the small chair.

To tax the black more than the white, is that not cruel? To forbid the mixing of the races, is that not cruel? To give the vote to the white man, and deny it to the yellow, the black, the red-- is that not cruel? Hm. But is it not cruel to banish your children from a perfect garden? Or drown your flock under an ocean of water? Cruelty can be instructive, and what is Columbia, if not the schoolhouse of the Lord?
--Zachary Hale Comstock, December the 18th, 1899

Voxophone 042 - A Truer Allegiance

In the alternate Plaza of Zeal, Booker must return to the Gunsmith Shop and find Chen Lin. Kill all the enemies (including regular goons and turrets) first then head to the building with the coded message. Set the big round clock to the right, opening a safe with an Infusion and a Voxophone.

"I came to Columbia because I believed in God and because I believed in honor. But Slate has shown me this: there is no God in shutting out brothers out from the family of man, and there is no honor in defending those who are strangers to its meaning. Perhaps in Finkton, there is one more deserving of my service."
--Lance Corporal Vivian Monroe, July the 7th, 1912

Chapter 16 - Shanty Town


Voxophone 043 - Fanning a Flame

In the basement of the Graveyard Shift tavern.

When you forced deep underground, well-- you see things from the bottom up. And down at the bottom of the city, I saw a fire burning. A fire's got heat aplenty, but it ain't got no mouth. Daisy...now, she got herself a mouth big enough for all the fires in Columbia.
--Daisy Fitzroy, February the 12th, 1912

Voxophone 044 - Trapped

After destroying the two defense turrets, you'll want to circle around the building directly across from one of the defense turrets to reach an empty homeless man's shelter, complete with bear trap and blood on the floor. There is a Voxophone to be found in this shelter.

Well, Fitzroy-- you...you got a low cunning in ya, if nothing else. Dropped a couple grizzly traps 'round the lines up here. Idea was to...to bleed one of your couriers till he gave you up. 'Cept, of course, you're using kids now. Now I got this...tiny Injun boy, eyeballing me. Had to take his leg off. Damn thing's just lying here between us. I sure wish he'd cry or something.
--Preston E. Downs, July the 5th, 1912

Voxophone 045 - Terminated

Bull Yard Impound. Explore the first floor keeping an eye out for large "Columbia Police" emblem on a pillar. Turn left into the room right next to the interrogation room and pick up a Voxophone under the table.

They argued somethin' fierce at night-- Lady Comstock and the Prophet. Could never make out what it was about from my bunk, though. After the worst, I see she ain't left for morning prayer...so I crept upstairs to check in on her. And like a fool...I lingered. "Scullery maid" was what they called me when I walked into Comstock House. "Murderer" was what they shouted when I ran out.
--Daisy Fitzroy, February the 12th, 1912

Voxophone 046 - That Goddamn Key

Bull Yard Impound. There is another room past the medical kits on the second floor that contains a locked chest; the key for it is found in the basement of the Graveyard Shift bar back in Shanty Town. The chest houses another Infusion phial. Don't forget to grab the Voxophone in this room as well.

There's the job, and there's life. They pay me to hate the goddamn Vox, and I take their money, but...what's the harm of having a drink with Fitzroy's people? Face to face at the Graveyard Shift, why, they're...they're just folk. Hell, I guess I fell into the goddamn bottle, because I stumbled back without the evidence locker key. If Schmidt finds out...well, there'll be hell to pay.
--Private Wilbur Sykes, July the 5th, 1912

Voxophonw 047 - Kindling

After opening the tear at the Bull Yard Impound, go upstairs through several staircases to reach a room with a Voxophone on the police table.

You ever see a forest at the beginning of a fire? Before the first flame, you see them possums and squirrels, running through the trees. They know what's coming. But the fat bears with their bellies full a'honey, well-- you can't hardly wake them up from their comfortable hibernation. We're going to Emporia. And then, we gon' see what it takes to rouse them from their slumber.
--Daisy Fitzroy, July the 13th, 1912

Voxophone 048 - That Eternal Shore

In the alternate Shanty Town, go to the Vox held Graveyard Shift Tavern. The dead Handyman outside has this Voxophone.

"Samuel, when the spells of anger come, I want you to play this recording and remember that I am the proudest woman in Columbia to have been your wife. They said your soul was choked by the fumes in that metal box, but this I do not believe. And we shall meet again, on that eternal shore-- both of us whole and smiling. I love you. I love you. I love you."
--Hattie Gerst, July the 25th, 1908

Voxophone 049 - Drawing Dead

Go inside the Graveyard Shift tavern in the alternate Shanty Town. You'll find this Voxophone on the counter there,

"Bring us the girl and wipe away the debt." As plans go, I'd seen worse-- except this girl was already gone. Monument Island's a damn ghost town. Seems like they evacuated her when they heard I was here. An old friend told me Comstock spirited her off to that fortress of his. As a one-man job, this just went from bettin' on the river to...drawing dead.
--Booker DeWitt, July the 6th, 1912

Voxophone 050 - All Debts Paid

A Voxophone is on a shelf when you enter Chen Lin's Gun Shop in the Plaza of Zeal.

Looks like I got a friend in town after all...Slate. He's fell in with these "Vox Populi." And for irregulars, I will say-- they are loaded for bear. Problem is, I got to help them with their damn revolution first...then we take Comstock House by storm. I do that, I get the girl.
--Booker DeWitt, July the 7th, 1912

Chapter 18 - The Factory


Voxophone 051 - A Child Needs a Protector

The Vox soldiers will now attack Booker from the moment you step off the elevator. Kill them then check the table below the massive clock on the right for a Voxophone.

"These holes have shown me yet another wonder, though I've yet to see the application for it. They illuminate a merger of machine and man that is somehow the lesser, yet the greater, of both parties. The process seems to be irreversible. Perhaps, though, Comstock will have some need of this kind of thing to keep watch in that tower of his."
--Jeremiah Fink, October the 4th, 1895

Voxophone 052 - Apology

After the stry event with Elizabeth and Daisy Fitzroy, go to your right to find this Voxophone next to Jeremiah Fink's remains.

[Coughs] Fitzroy...you win this fool war, you send this to New York. [Bloody coughs] They ain't gettin' the girl. Whoever they are-- [Winces] Maybe I did right by you and the Vox, but in the end...that don't square anything. Anna...Anna...I'm sorry...

Chapter 19 - Prosperity Plaza


Voxophone 053 - Coming for Comstock

Moving forward past the Ticketing booth after disembarking from the trolley, proceed through the hallway and you'll find a corpse by a wall with a graffiti that says "The Founders will bleed!". On the floor next to that dead body is a Voxophone (this spot is found just before the Salty Oyster Bar).

"Mr. Comstock, when next we meet, it won't be to parley. See, I went out to that Hall a' Heroes to scalp your 'False Shepherd' for you. Turns out, though-- DeWitt speaks Sioux. He helped me swap words with this cripple child I've been uh...looking after. Now after hearing how the kid has fared in your city-- I'm thinking, when we take your pelt, I'll let him hold the knife."
--Preston E. Downs, July the 6th, 1912

Voxophone 054 - Whispers Through the Walls

Enter the news office just past the Grand Central Depot archway to secure a Voxophone among the pile of newspapers.

"The Lutece Field entangled my quantum atom with waves of light, allowing for safe measurement. Sound familiar, brother? That's because you were measuring precisely the same atom from a neighboring world. We used the universe as a telegraph. Switching the field on or off became dots and dashes. Dreadfully slow-- but now, you and I could whisper through the wall..."
--Rosalind Lutece, October the 15th, 1893

Voxophone 055 - A Window

Proceed to encounter some sniper fire from a foot bridge above. Kill off the marksmen then enter Founders Bookstore which should be nearby (Elizabeth will tell you about it too). Pick the door open. Grab the piece of Gear on the counter and the Voxophone next to the big teddy bear.

"Brother, what Comstock failed to understand is that our contraption is a window not into prophecy, but probability. But his money means the Lutece Field cannot become the Lutece Tear -- a window between worlds. A window through which you and I might finally be together."
--Rosalind Lutece, October the 15th, 1893

Voxophone 056 -Sally

In the Founders Bookstore basement,

"Sally! The ******* snuck in while the Vox was shootin' up the place and took my girl! Got her locked up in the Salty Oyster -- his hidden closet he keeps all his "treasures." Just need to hit the button under the register to open it, but ..."
--Ronald Frank, July the 16th, 1912

Voxophone 057 - One and the Same

Go back to the bar (you will encounter quite a bit of resistance on the way there). Press the button under the register to open the secret room. In it is a wide variety of valuable loot including an Infusion phial and the Return to Sender Vigor on the counter and a Voxophone in the washtub.

"You have been transfused, brother, into a new reality, but your body rejects the cognitive dissonance through confusion and hemorrhage. But we are together, and I will mend you. For what separates us now, but a single chromosome?"
--Rosalind Lutece, October the 15th, 1893

Chapter 20 - Downtown Emporia


Voxophone 058 - A City, Suspended

You will be greeted by a mass of enemies including armored RPG-toting beasts and a Handyman upon entering this area. Go ahead and clean house as usual. Once clear, get on the sky-line and dismount on the upper level to the left. There is a door here that requires 3 lock picks. Open it to find a Voxophone tucked between two crates on the floor.

"I had trapped the atom in the mid-air. Colleagues called my Lutece Field quantum levitation, but in fact, it was nothing of the sort. Magicians levitate-- my atom simply failed to fall. If an atom could be suspended indefinitely, well-- why not an apple? If an apple, why not a city?"
--Rosalind Lutece, August the 10th, 1890

Voxophone 059 - Beyond Redemption

In the area past the sniper-infested plaza, the locked green building here houses a Gear while the structure directly across from it has a basement lounge where some Vox Populi members are holed up. Kill everyone (except the civilian of course) then grab the Voxophone from the crate behind the tables and chairs.

"Tonight, the Prophet moved against his political enemies. He preaches mercy, but 40 souls lie tonight dead, in unmarked graves. If a man was ever unworthy of grace, it would be my husband. But when I was beyond redemption, he offered it anyway. How can I deny forgiveness to one who, with love, granted it to me?"
--Lady Comstock, December the 28th, 1894

Voxophone 060 - Out of the Thin Air

Head past the bridge with the telescope and you will notice a completely wrecked house belonging to Albert Fink. Jump in via the hole on the side wall and grab the Voxophone on the piano.

"Dear brother, these holes in the thin air continue to pay dividends. I know not which musician you borrow your notes from, but if he has half the genius of the biologist I now observe, well...then you are to be the Mozart of Columbia."
--Jeremiah Fink, November the 14th, 1894

Voxophone 061 - The True Color of My Skin

Follow the objective arrow to Market District and you'll come to a pedestrian bridge with some vending machines below it. There is an art store around this area (in the direction away from the objective) that requires 3 lock picks to break in. Inside this building is a Gear and Voxophone.

"In front of all the men, the sergeant looked at me and said, 'Your family tree shelters a teepee or two, doesn't it, son?' This lie, this calumny, had followed me all my life. From that day, no man truly called me comrade. It was only when I burnt the teepees with the squaws inside, did they take me as one of their own. Only blood can redeem blood."
--Zachary Hale Comstock, December the 29th, 1908

Voxophone 062 - Pen Pal

Check the base o Lady Comstock's statue at the Comstock Estate for this Voxophone.

"This is for the Miracle Child. Hello! I'm sorry your mother, Lady Comstock, is dead. (I think she is altogether better than mine.) Since you live there, can you tell me why the tower has been closed? People say it's poor weather, then the pox, then a haunting. If it is a secret, I promise not to tell a soul. -- Your pen friend, Constance"
--Constance Field, July the 20th, 1902

Chapter 21 - Memorial Gardens


Voxophone 063 - On the Entropy of Genes

In the Lutece Lab, there is a Voxophone in the room adjacent to where the tear is.

"Comstock seems to have been made sterile by simple exposure to our contraption. A theory: just as sexual reproduction can de-emphasize the traits of each parent, so goes the effect of multiple realities on our own. Your traits dissipate, until they become unrecognizable, or cease to exist."
--Rosalind Lutece, July the 3rd, 1893

Voxophone 064 - A Theory on our "Death

In the Lutece Lab, visit the bed room upstairs next for an Infusion phial plus another Voxophone sitting on the floor between the bed and the night stand.

"Comstock has sabotaged our contraption. Yet, we are not dead. A theory: we are scattered amongst the possibility space. But my brother and I are together, and so, I am content. He is not. The business with the girl lies unresolved. But perhaps there is one who can finish it in our stead."
--Rosalind Lutece, November the 1st, 1909

Voxophone 065 - Child of Science

In the Lutece Lab, open the tear. There should be a Voxophone on the ground where the tear used to be afterward, so don't forget to pick it up.

"Lady Comstock seems to believe the child is a result of some errant act of carnality between myself and her beloved Prophet. I told the poor woman the truth: that the child was a product of our little contraption. But I think she found that less believable than her delusion."
--Rosalind Lutece, January the 4th, 1895

Voxophone 066 - The Imagination of God

Bank of the Prophet. Take a left at the vault and enter the other door in the next room. There, the Code Book comes into play in the section that says "HOARDER" on the wall. Use the typewriter to open a secret room full of valuable loot including this Voxophone.

"I know the Prophet is a liar, but he cannot be. I know the Prophet is a murderer, but he cannot be. For if the future lies only in the imagination of God, why would he reveal it to such a...monster?"
--Lady Comstock, January the 4th, 1895

Voxophone 067 - No Longer

Bank of the Prophet. In the room with the tear (Book of the Prophet), turn left and collect the Voxophone on the ground behind the safe.

"Lutece says the ******* is a creation not of her womb, but of womb unholy science. I do not know which is true. The child is no more divine than I. What says that for my husband's prophecy? He begs my silence, but I can only offer him forgiveness. But with repentance need come truth. I can suffer his lies no longer."
--Lady Comstock, January the 5th, 1895

Voxophone 068 - A Broken Circle

Bank of the Prophet. Open the rift and grab the Voxophone that appears in its place.

"The archangel tells me that Columbia will only survive so long as my line sits the throne. Yet Lady Comstock produces no child. I have done what a man can do, yet there is no child! I have asked Lutece about the matter, but even she refuses to help."
--Zachary Hale Comstock, September the 10th, 1893

Voxophone 069 - The Customer is Late

Open the third tear at the photography studio. This Voxophone appears where the rift once was.

Estelle: "That's insanity. What proof would you have that Mr. Fink would hurt the Luteces?"
Rupert: "The Luteces told me."
Estelle: "The Luteces? When?"
Rupert: "Yesterday. Yesterday morning."
Estelle: "Rupert...they've been dead for these seven days..."
--Rupert Cunningham, November the 6th, 1909

Chapter 22 - Comstock House


Voxophone 070 - A Leash

Press the intercom button across from the elevator thwn step on the lift when it arrives. There's a Voxophone in the elevator as well.

"I suppose the Siphon is a kind of leash. Yes, my father put it on me, but when the time came, neither did I remove it myself. What would happen if I took off the leash, and I found I was...as obedient as ever?"
--Elizabeth

Voxophone 071 - The Value of Choice

Visit the Crematorium next (labeled "where we weep") and look into the wooden coffin for a Voxophone.

"Our minds are born festering with sin. Some are so blighted, they will never find redemption. The mind must not be pulled from the roots. My children are without blame, without fault-- and without choice. For what is the value of will when the spirit is found wanting?"
--Elizabeth

Voxophone 072 - Debts

Just past the room with all the busts is another Sentinel. Grab a Gear and Voxophone at the back of the wall behind it.

"'Bring us the girl and wipe away the debt.' But in the end, he is the one who'll have to pay down all of our accounts, won't he? Where does his guilt start ... and mine end?"
--Elizabeth

Voxophone 073 - A Last Chance

In the Security Center, check the area to the left with the lockers. The next Voxophone is on a chair by the working projector in this area.

"As the days pass, I believe less in God and more in Lutece. My powers shrivel as my regrets blossom. All of this because my father failed me. By the time I realized how far I'd gone, it was too late to stop it. But there is still one last chance at redemption-- for both of us."
--Elizabeth

Voxophone 074 - Smothered in the Crib

Continue to the Warden's and pick up the Voxophone from the chair before opening the security gate.

"What I've done cannot be undone. I cannot stop what I have put in motion. But perhaps I can keep it from ever starting. He was my first hope, and now...he is my last."
--Elizabeth

Voxophone 075 - Ending It

On the floor in the elevator after pulling the lever for the security gate in the Warden's Office.

"Tomorrow, the leash comes off-- because all of this ... has to end. But even if I destroy the Siphon, will I be strong enough to see all the doors, and open whichever I choose? And if I bring him here, who is to say that he would be any match for the monsters I have created?"
--Elizabeth

Voxophone 076 - Pavlov's Bell

After Booker regroups with Elizabeth, go back to that door that previously said "Elizabeth Busy. Can't Lockpick." and open it. Inside the doctor's office is the last (24th) Infusion phial and the 76th Voxophone.

"The procedure should help immensely with the ... issues we've had with the girl. Once the device is implanted, any efforts on her part to ... alter the state of things will emit a most painful electric shock. Pavlov made a dog salivate. We'll make this one weep."
--Dr. Harrison Powell, December the 23rd, 1912

Chapter 23 - Hand of the Prophet


Voxophone 077 - An Ultimatum

There is a locked door at the building up ahead that can be picked open. Go there once the area is clear and grab a Voxophone from one of the rooms inside.

"My brother has presented me with an ultimatum: if we do not send the girl back from where we brought her, he and I must part. Where he sees an empty page, I see King Lear. But he is my brother, so I shall play my part, knowing it shall all end in tears."
--Rosalind Lutece, October the 16th, 1909

Voxophone 078 - What's Done is Done

There's a locked metal door on Deck 2 that requires 1 pick to open. Inside that room is a Voxophone.

"Our contraption shows us the girl is the flame that shall ignite the world. My brother says we must undo what we have done. But time is more an ocean than a river. Why try to bring in a tide that will only again go out?"
--Rosalind Lutece, September the 3rd, 1909

Voxophone 079 - The Mirror of Sin

After the confrontation with Comstock but before Booker uses the ship's controls, explore the catwalks to gain access to an office and a bedroom. both these rooms each contain a Voxophone.

"When a soul is born again, what happens to the one left behind in the baptismal water? Is he simply...gone? Or does he exist in some other world, alive, with sin intact?"
--Zachary Hale Comstock, June the 21st, 1893

Voxophone 080 - The Prophet is Dying

After the confrontation with Comstock but before Booker uses the ship's controls, explore the catwalks to gain access to an office and a bedroom. both these rooms each contain a Voxophone.

"The Prophet is dying. The metastasis has aged him so quickly. Why does this Comstock decay, while a Comstock in another world remain fit? If genetics are destiny, what accounts for the difference? Perhaps exposure to the contraption? Hm. It merits further study."
--Rosalind Lutece, December the 4th, 1907
