Hey look buddy, I'm an engineer. That means I solve problems. Not problems like "what is beauty?" because that would fall within the purview of your conundrums of philosophy. I solve practical problems.
~ Engineer to the audiences about his way to solve "practical" problem(his enemy).

The Engineer (real name: Dell Conagher) is a soft-spoken and amiable Texan with an interest in all things mechanical. He specializes in constructing and maintaining Buildings that provide support to his team, rather than fighting at the front lines. The Engineer's various gadgets include the Sentry Gun; an automated turret that fires at any enemy in range, the Dispenser; a device that restores the health and ammo of nearby teammates, and Teleporters that quickly transport players from point A to point B.

Because the Engineer's ingenious devices are under constant threat from explosives and devious enemy Spies, a good Engineer must keep his gear under a watchful eye and repair with them his wrench at all times. When the Engineer needs to get his hands dirty, his trio of generic yet capable weapons, along with the assistance of his helpful hardware, make him more than capable of holding his own in a fight.

If need be, the Engineer can pick up and haul constructed buildings to redeploy them in more favorable locations.

In Expiration Date

In the TF2 short film Expiration Date, Dell fears that his teleporters may be causing tumors in his teammates, and experiments with teleporting bread along with the Medic. They later learn that the "tumors" only form in pure wheat, and that the tumors are actually a living organism.
