Dead rising 2 case 0 into FIND KATEY words

Find Katey and escape the arena

Dead Rising 2 opens up with Chuck Greene and his daughter Katey in the Fortune City Arena. A series of cinematics make it clear that Chuck is a contestant on Terror Is Reality XVII: Payback, competing for money towards his daughter's much-needed doses of Zombrex. The player must finish a round of TIR before advancing on towards the open world of Fortune City.

Whether the player come in first or last only affects the amount of reward money they receive. In either case, characters still remain "disappointed" in Chuck's performance, as they all know he does not enjoy competing. After he washes up and changes, Chuck goes looking for his daughter as well as some more Zombrex. The elevator is disabled from a sudden explosion and Chuck crawls out into the zombie-infested hallways behind the arena.

The player must find Katey, who is hiding in a locker in the Green Room, and escape the arena in search of the Safe Room. After leaving the arena, a cutscene follows of Chuck and Katey making it to the Safe Room and meeting some key characters of the game, including Stacey Forsythe and Raymond Sullivan. Chuck quickly realizes that he has no Zombrex, as there is no supply in the Safe Room, and Katey will need some soon.

Fat man wearing a Terror is Reality Fortune City t-shirt (talking to himself): she, she was looking right at me, and they had her,

Fat man: and I, I couldn't do anything.

Fat man: She went down without a sound and I, I had to get outta there,

Fat man: I just... ran.

Woman off screen: This is horrible, horrible!

Chuck and Katey turn around as they hear the sounds of the undead through the doors, everyone else turns towards the doors also.
A second set of doors opens revealing an older bearded man in a US Fortune City Security (FCS) jacket. The survivors hurry through the door, with Chuck, holding Katey's hand, coming in last.

Security officer: Whoa whoa whoa hold on a second, son.

The security officer looks down at Katey's arm, which has a bite mark.

Chuck: Listen, it's an existing condition, alright? It's ok - it happened a long time ago.

Security officer: It's only a matter of time before she turns.

Chuck: Hey, don't worry. I've got Zombrex.

Security officer: Yeah, well you'd better have a lot.

Security officer: Because there ain't none here, and the rescue ain't comin' for three days.

Chuck: Three days?

Security officer: Yeah, the reserves will already be mobilizing,

Security officer: but their first priority is to quarantine the city. And that takes time.

Security officer: They'll enter the city at first light three days from now.

Security officer: That's the standard procedure.

Chuck: So we're stuck here?

Security officer: There's a couch in the security room - why don't you take her in there, it's quieter.
