Helena gets a call from Hunnigan, who introduces them to each other.

Benford (flashback): "Bio-organic weapons are a global threat and we are partly to blame... start working with the rest of the world... the Raccoon City Incident... the Raccoon City... I'm going to tell them everything... it might create more problems than it solves... I always valued your friendship, Leon."

Leon: "Stay right where you are!"
"Mr. President!"
"Don't make me do this."

Helena: "It's all my fault."
"I did this."

Leon: "What are you talking about?"

Helena: "Tall Oaks Cathedral..."
"I'll explain everything there, Agent Kennedy."

Leon: "How do you know my name?"

Helena: "Yes?"

Leon: "Hunnigan?"

Hunnigan: "Thank God you're both all right."

Leon: "How do you two know each other?"

Hunnigan: "That's Helena Harper, she's been with the Secret Service since last year."
"I can't tell you how good it is to hear you two are all right."
"Look, I hate to rush the introductions but I need a report on your situation."

Leon: "I... I just shot the president."

Hunnigan: "What are you-"

Helena: "He had already been infected by the time we found him."
"Leon did what he had to. He saved my life."

Hunnigan: "God help us."
"All right, I'll submit the report."
"You two just focus on getting the hell out of there."
"The virus has already spread three miles past the campus perimeter and it's not slowing down."
"You need to hurry."

Helena: "Not before we check out Tall Oaks Cathedral."
"Agent Kennedy's got a lead that might tell us who's responsible for this."

Hunnigan: "Leon, is that true?"

Leon: "...Yeah. I think I might have something."

Helena: "Roger that. I'll map out the safest access route."
"Keep your radio on."

Leon: "I got a lead?"

Helena: "You will if you come with me."
