Confused with a quote
I am going to put this thread here as I belive that if it relates to Tenebaum it could have an effectwith Bioshock 2
Fontaine says this in Bioshock 1:
"That Tenenbaum ain't what you think. Florence Nightengale, huh? That'll all come crashing down 'fore you can say 'canned tomatoes'. I've seen good bunco, and I've seen great bunco. But, when you waltz through Rapture and World War Two without even a scratch? You got more than leprechauns watching over you."
Who is he refering too? Himself or her?
I natrually assumed he was talking about himself
He is talking about Tenenbaum, he is trying to convince you she is evil - which she totally is and you all know it - after you join up with her.
So people; I, Sinclair Saucer and my associate I-ChooseTheImpossible beg you to follow Augustus Sinclair's wishes
She was in a german prison camp and survives without a 'scratch' then she survives Rapture which makes Fontaine think that there is more than leprechauns (angels) watching over her.
She is evil I tell you! EVIL!

Reason: Removed spoiler.
Not that it's a major spoiler, but it'd have been nice to find that our for myself.
The quote is indeed Fontaine attempting to convince you that Tenenbaum is just as likely to betray you as he was. Getting out of concentration camp 'without a scratch' generally implies crazy luck...or cooperation with the people in charge.
He's trying to shake your nerve. He says several similar lines if I remember correctly. He even threatens to destroy Tenenbaum's orphanage.
First of all, wrong forum. This is a BioShock topic, not BioShock 2, so I'm just gonna move it there. Another thing; if you guys are playing BioShock 2 already (dunno how, but I guess), do NOT post ANY kind of spoilers, and if you do, please use spoiler tags. But any spoiler posted BEFORE Tuesday the 9th of February, will result in a permanent ban, so PLEASE do not do that. Thank you.

It is not mentioned but during the time she is imprisioned the Germans were trying to create the perfect humans not only physically but genetically, The Lebensborn Project was a real experimental facility that was working on creating perfect children that would grow perfectly linear. Age/Weight/Height/Muscle Mass ratio. = 1
One goal of the project was to match genetically perfect men with genetically perfect women and thus would create genetically perfect children.
(The project did not condone random breeding, selection was the key)
It also served as a care facility where pregnant women could stay and be taken care of while there husbands were in the military.
The projects core goal was Optimized Eugenics (Sound familiar?)
The project was considered based on few records to be successul. There are some children from the Lebensborn project that are monitored by doctors and researchers to prove or disprove that optimized eugenics played an important role in physical and mental health of the individual over the years.
Sad to say but many of the women and children were ostracised from Germany. Many went to Poland and still live there to this day.
