You go ahead and take the old bandages and expired eyewash. You add them to your own first aid kit, just... distinctly separated from the newer stuff.

You begin checking the pockets of the coveralls. You don't find much--mostly spare change, though admittedly very old change--but the last one you check has a slip of paper in its pocket. The paper is tattered and very faded, but you can faintly make out the number 53. It looks like there was other numbers or writing in front of it, at some point.

You start pulling the sheets and covers off the beds and stuffing them, and the coveralls, into the laundry machine to wash later.

You also check the crack in the wall. It cuts deep, but it doesn't seem to break all the way to the other side. ...Which makes you realize just how thick these walls are.

As you head back into the first room, you inquire about the pipes, the cracks, and if everything's... going to hold up.

"I mean... it all looks stable," Michelle says. "Hard to say without seein' it from the outside... and I'm not sure we're gonna get to do that."

You head through the door on the right.

"S'a generator, ain't it?," Caius asks.

Michelle nods, looking at the device next to the door. "Yeah. Explains how we got power, at least..." Her eyes follow the wires up the wall and into the ceiling. "Prob'ly hooked into everything else. We seen pipes, too, so there's plumbin'."

First orde of business: loot the shelf and the cabinets. Do be mindful in case something falls out or something like that, though.

And I dunno if any spiders would have survived down here this long, but they might have! So let's be careful about sticking our hands into dark places.

(If we DO find spiders, we should totes blood them. And keep them away from Michelle.)

I wonder if there's a garage.
I mean if it was a military base, they gotta have room to store something for utility.

Also, no bathrooms yet. No mess hall. Hmm...

Hmm, maybe we could determine the other numbers on that scrap of paper by doing that "rub a pencil over it" trick, if it looks like the number was written in pen hard enough to leave indentations even if the ink is faded out. If it doesn't look like it, though, let's not try the pencil thing-- don't wanna destroy any remnants of ink after all. Maybe we could stick it under a microscope later or something.

Also, re: the med supplies we found, we could fill the eyewash bottle with blood because another method of dispensing blood is always good. We can use the old bandages for blood-bandages to attach to animals and such, for when we want to have animals be able to manipulate stuff.

well at least we have a place for finch to set up a new lab! as suggested by others, check the cupboards and the shelves and see what we can find. take a look at the generator and see if we can determine what it runs on. hopefully not gas, as that is very expensive. with any luck it's fancy alien tech like the door that's not a door. i'm remaining cautiously optimistic about this place... it almost seems too good to be true.

Ah, another room that would definitely be here, would be something in relation to their research. Possibly even storage behind that.

I say this is our new home and we should start decorating in the near future!... Also send some to the store to or our home to pick up soap for the sheets and our chlothes and our living necessities lol

And some air freshener, since it probably smells kinda musty in here. Maybe not lemon-scented tho cuz that could bring back traumatizing memories... although they ARE the memories of how some of us met, which is happy even despite the trauma? Man I dunno.

Also, the future version of those Clorox sanitizing wipes, cuz those would just be handy to have. We can only sanitize SOME things with our blood XD if we need to sanitize the surface of it, that's less than ideal

Good thinking and some of the cereal the rats like and probably bird food like how are they getting fed if they're just watching things right??
