The Facts: Memories is the twentieth and final case Frank West receives in Dead Rising. It is activated upon speaking to Isabela Keyes in Carlito's hideout, and is completed at the end of the cutscene.
Frank delivers the news of Carlito's fate to Isabela, who takes it with a mixture of sadness and relief. He says that Carlito died without telling him anything, and hands her the locket that Carlito told him to deliver. Isabela opens up the locket to see a photo of their family, and is overtaken by emotion. She then realizes something and types it into the computer, successfully granting them access to Carlito's files. She explains to Frank that "pachamama," a phrase meaning "Mother Earth," was a phrase often used by their parents in the blessed-by-nature hometown Santa Cabeza. With the password out of the way, Isabela manages to disable the jamming device.
The case is completed at this point, but more events follow. With the signal no longer being blocked, Jessie is able to contact DHS headquarters via an emergency line. She tells them about the Willamette incident, but later calls Frank in a distraught state, telling him that the government has decided to deny everything that has happened. Special Forces soldiers will arrive at midnight to eradicate all zombies and humans.
Later, a Special Forces Escort confronts Jessie about the situation, and offers her a chance - if she signs an agreement not to tell anybody about what has happened, she will be taken into custody and will be free to go.
A second Special Forces soldier guarding the door to the office then hears suspicious noises coming from inside. He investigates and finds a zombified Jessie tearing out the throat of the first soldier. Zombie Jessie can then be found in the Security Room, and all the previously rescued survivors will have disappeared.
A note from Otis found in the Security Room indicates that while Frank was out, the Special Forces arrived via the heliport and started capturing the survivors in the Security Room. He took advantage of the situation and stole a helicopter to escape, though he was unable to find Jessie in the confusion. He adds that he hopes Frank doesn't think he is a coward, and that he owes Frank a drink if they meet on the other side.
At midnight, Special Forces soldiers infiltrate the mall via the Entrance Plaza under Brock Mason's orders. They replace the zombies as Frank's major enemies inside the mall. They withdraw at 10:00, September 22, leaving the mall devoid of zombies or survivors aside from Frank himself. Isabela then calls Frank on the transceiver, asking him to come to Carlito's hideout to talk to her.
Accessing the LaptopEdit
Frank tells Isabela about her brother's death. Seeing Carlito's locket triggers a memory for Isabela though - the word "Pachamama", meaning "Mother Earth" and often said by their parents. Trying the computer again, it accepts the password and allows Isabela to turn off the jamming device.
Frank: He's dead.
Isabela: No... Oh...
Frank: All he worried about was you in the end. But dammit! He died without telling me a damn thing!
Frank: You know, I thought he was terrorist scum. But... In the end, all he really cared about was his sister. The jerk! Here... He wanted you to have this.
Isabela: Papa... Mama...
Frank: Did you figure it out?
Isabela: Pachamama... Mother Earth. Our parents said that a lot.
Isabela: The place we lived. Santa Cabeza... was blessed with nature. Please believe me when I say my brother didn't want all this. He only wanted to live in peace in Santa Cabeza.
Jessie Contacts HQEdit
Before Frank leaves Carlito's hideout he will get a call from Jessie saying that she is going to call for backup. As Frank walks, there will be a number of other cutscenes about the outcome of her call. The government is planning to cover up the entire incident; Special Forces troops will arrive at midnight to wipe out everything moving in the mall.
Jessie: Frank, the emergency line's been freed up! I'll give headquarters a call. Hang on.
HQ: DHS headquarters.
Jessie: This is agent Jessica McCarney. We have an emergency situation.
Jessie: Frank... It's over... HQ's decided to ignore us.
Frank: What... What do you mean, "ignore us"?
Jessie: I contacted headquarters, but... The government has decided to deny all knowledge of what happened here.
Jessie: Special Forces will arrive for cleanup at midnight. They'll take everyone out... Zombies, people, everyone...
Jessie the ZombieEdit
The first military representative arrives shortly before midnight to take Jessie away, but she has become a zombie and attacks the man.
Special Forces Escort: Jessica McCarney? Talk about your close calls... You contacted us just in time. Your boss thought we should have a talk with you before the operation begins. We'll be taking you into custody. If you sign an agreement to keep your mouth shut about all this... you'll be free to go.
Special Forces Guard: Ahhhhhhhhhhh!
Note from OtisEdit
Frank can also check the desk in front of the monitors to find a note from Otis Washington, which explains where he (and the other survivors) have disappeared.
Frank, while you were out some crazy people snuck in from the rooftop and started snatchin' people. I heard a helluva racket coming from where the monitors are, so I'm taking advantage of the confusion and stealing a helicopter! I might not look the type but I've got a small aircraft pilot's license. I haven't seen Jessie. There's no time to look for her now. I've gotta get out of here while the gettin's good. I hope you don't think I'm a coward. If we meet on the other side, I definitely owe you a drink. Good luck, Frank.
Special Forces Begin CleanupEdit
At this point of the game, Frank has a lot of extra time - the next plot event won't happen until 10:00am the next morning. But the mall is crawling with Special Forces soldiers, and they're very tough to see in the dark. They are also very strong - unless Frank has previously gotten the Zombie Genocider achievement and unlocked the Real Mega Buster for it, they are going to prove very difficult foes. Franks best bet is to keep a very close eye out for the special forces and avoid them when possible; listen out for their radio chatter and take things slowly. As always, Frank will also want to keep plenty of healing items in his inventory, and save regularly.
Introducing Brock MasonEdit
The cutscene reveals that the special forces have completely killed all of the zombies in Entrance Plaza. One soldier motions that everything is completed to an officer in a gas mask. The officer removes the gas mask, it is Brock Mason, who Frank will meet again in Overtime Mode.
Head to the Heliport, where Frank was first dropped off. At this point, not only are the Special Forces gone, every zombie has been killed. But don't waste much time; if Frank doesn't make it to the Helipad then the game will be lost.
zombies makes their way across the roof towards him, and the credits roll.
If Frank spoke to Isabela after the military withdrawal, Frank unlocked Overtime Mode, which adds another 24 hours onto the story.
