The Keller Family Transcripts tell of a pre-war family who were all alive when the first bombs dropped on October 23, 2077.


The Keller Family

The family members consisted of:

It is implied they had a strained relationship. Alex was a national guardsman who was able to steal the access code to a bunker, and sent a single digit of it to each family member, forcing them to be together to survive the bombs. However, he was arrested for stealing the codes and can be presumed not to have joined his family in the bunker. Ralph refused to join the family, stating that he had "a mushroom cloud to walk into" - the implication being that he would rather die than spend the rest of his life cooped up with his family.

The other four family members, Mom, Dad, Candace and Tina, took shelter in the underground National Guard Depot, where they can be presumed to have met their end. In the bunker there are 3 bodies and a Glowing One; it seems probable that this is what became of the father as a result of his many trips to the outside, searching for supplies in the irradiated wasteland, and explains why there are 3 bodies in the bunker instead of 4.

Tina, it's me. Your brother? Alex? Listen, mom would kill me if she knew I was contacting you, but she's being an impossible bitch right now.
You have to come home. Do you understand me? This thing with China... it's not going away. We're going to try to get into one of those Vaults.
If that doesn't work, well... I have a backup plan. There's this secure bunker... another sort of vault... inside the National Guard Depot, and...
Look, no matter what it takes, the whole damn Keller family's gonna ride this storm out, but you've got to get your ass home. Now!

Paul, it's me. Tina. I heard back from my sister Candace. We couldn't get into a Vault. 101, 87, didn't matter -- all full to capacity.
But my brother Alex is a soldier and... he sort of stole the pass code for a secure Army bunker. He did it for the family. But they caught him.
Before they took him into custody, Alex he sent each of us one number of the four-digit code. That way, we all have to be together to get in.
He gave me number "5" -- the day of my birth. So I guess what I'm saying is... I'm still leaving. It's been fun. Kind of.
Oh, and I'm not pregnant! So no worries.

Mom, it's Candace. Oh my God, it's really happening. I can see the cloud... it's so big... Mom, I'm so scared.
I'm heading to the Vault now. I'll do whatever I can to get inside. My number of the passcode was "7," right?(static)

Ralphie, son, this is your father! We can't get into the goddamn Vault without you! Get your ass over here now! My "4" is useless without you, boy...

Candace, it's Ralph. Tell dad there's no way in hell I'm spending nuclear Armageddon trapped with him in a fucking closet.
You can have my number. It's "6." Now if you'll excuse me, I've got a mushroom cloud to walk into. Have a happy holocaust!
