Storyline

A fisherman asks Gordon Freeman to eradicate the Combine's hold on the town of St. Olga, a seaside town. Gordon takes out the soldiers guarding the headcrab launcher inside an abandoned church, disables the launcher, and then destroys two helicopters before riding a basket down to the fisherman again. As Gordon approaches the fisherman, he invites Gordon to a dinner of leeches in celebration, but before he can get further, he starts to fade away, with the fisherman remarking "You're getting a little fuzzy around the edges! Well, I guess you've got better places to be." Written by Dogman15

While he looks for his gate key, the fisherman says "Got the key, right here..." and then "There we go!", but the game subtitles say "Got the key, right here... somewhere..." The fisherman never says "somewhere". See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
The Fisherman: [upon seeing Gordon for the first time] Hey! You there! Wait a minute now... aren't you...? Ah, you are! You're that scientist chap - Friedman, Fishman - am I right? You must be here to take on the Combine. Not sure what one man can do, but... no other reason to visit St. Olga at a time like this. I'll take you to where they made their base - or as far as I can, at any rate.
