Fallout developers[edit | edit source]

Arroyo
  • In Arroyo, the Chosen One's nephew standing by the well is named Feargus, as in Feargus Urquhart, founder of Black Isle, the developer of Fallout and Fallout 2. Another Feargus is the subordinate of President of NCR Tandi, whose report to the raiders in Vault 15, when found by the Chosen One, exposes him as a traitor. As Per Jorner says:

Ever wondered why there is at least one Feargus or similarly named character in each of Fallout 2, Baldur's Gate, Baldur's Gate II, Planescape: Torment and Icewind Dale? It might have something to do with Black Isle director Feargus MacRae Urquhart; there are close to a dozen names in these games derived from his (including Cassidy's original name, which shows up if you sell him to Metzger). Names of other developers abound, but none of them sticks out as much. "Smitty" is another ubiquitous cognomen - there are four of those in the two Fallout games, and there might well have been a fifth...

The Nearly Ultimate Fallout 2 Guide by Per Jorner
New Reno
The Den
  • The addicts of the Den will question where Sasha is. This is in reference to Vince Denardo. Although he is one of Interplay's old producers, he did not work on Fallout or Fallout 2.

Sasha is normally placed in the special thanks section or some other place in most of the older manuals.[46]

Fly[edit | edit source]

When Junkies are high, among their generic float dialogue is them singing "I…just want to fly. Put your arms around me, baby, put your arms around me, baby." This is a reference to Sugar Ray's Fly.[50] This is part of the play on words theme of Jet addiction, with the drug being Jet, an Jet addict known as a pilot, and the act of getting or being high on Jet are Fly, Flying, Jetted, and Jetting.

The exact name, its presence on a supposed grave marker, and the difficulty/impossibility of finding it, are all references to the site of the reputed buried treasure in The Good, The Bad & The Ugly.

This section is needed but has not been written yet. You can help The Vault by writing it.

Stranger in a Strange Land[edit | edit source]

In regards to Josh Laurence's sense of humor in his unique profession, mortician/bartender of the Last Gasp Saloon and Funeral Parlor, the Chosen One can tell him that he finds him creepy. In response Josh Laurence, offended, makes a comment about tribals eating their dead, to which the Chosen One can remark "How else could we grok their essence?". This prompts Josh Laurence to comment that he confused the "Martian" as a tribal. This is an allusion to Grok in the 1961 science-fiction novel, Stranger in a Strange Land.[171]

Grok is a word coined by Robert A. Heinlein for his 1961 science-fiction novel, Stranger in a Strange Land meaning; "Grok means to understand so thoroughly that the observer becomes a part of the observed—to merge, blend, intermarry, lose identity in group experience. It means almost everything that we mean by religion, philosophy, and science—and it means as little to us (because of our Earthling assumptions) as color means to a blind man."[172]

Taxi Driver[edit | edit source]

When the Chosen One has the either no reputation, or the Prizefighter, Made Man, and/or Slaver reputations. And if the companions Robobrain, Marcus, and Sulik are active, Junkies will repeat Robert De Niro's famous line "You talkin' to me? You talkin' to me?!" from Taxi Driver.[173]

Terminator[edit | edit source]

They Live[edit | edit source]

  • In the 1988 sci-fi film They Live, the protagonist (John Nada) utters the phrase "I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass, and I am all out of bubblegum." When opening dialogue with the Sheriff of Redding, Earl Marion, the Chosen One might choose the opening line "I'm here in town to kick ass and chew bubblegum - and I'm all out of gum."[175] Buster's guards utter a similar line: "I'm here to kick ass and chew bubble gum. Good thing for you I have one stick left."[176]
  • In the Hubologists' headquarters in San Francisco, the guards there will say "Obey." "Sleep." and "Consume." when spoken to.[177] In "They Live", after the protagonist (John Nada) acquires the special sunglasses, he is able to see the subliminal messages the aliens have placed in mankind's everyday urban surroundings in order to brainwash them. The commands "Obey", "Sleep", and "Consume" are among the many messages people without the glasses cannot see.

The Time Machine[edit | edit source]

When getting Micky's help to retrieve the treasure from the town well. However, once it is retrieved, Micky will be stuck in it forever, with humorous floats persisting throughout the game. One of them "Oh my god! Morlocks!"[178] is an allusion to the Morlocks of The Time Machine by H.G. Wells.

Tomb Raider[edit | edit source]

Making fun of Stuart Little's character model prompts him to call female players "Laura Kroft wannabe".[179] This is an allusion to the Tomb Raider series.

Top Gun[edit | edit source]

A pornographic movie named Top Bun is mentioned by Vikki Goldman. This prono is a spoof on the film Top Gun, of whom the lead actor is Tom Cruise who in turn is spoofed by Juan Cruz. Both share a dialogue file.[180]

In Gecko, Percival Crump wants the Chosen One to find his friend Woody in The Den. Upon arriving in The Den the Chosen One can discover that Woody has dozed off and has been put on display as "A Jan-u-wine Egyptian Mummy" as part of The Great Ananias' attraction. Once paid for a viewing, the Great Ananias will open the chipped paper-mache sarcophagus with Woody sleeping inside. Upon recognising that it is the missing ghoul Woody, the Chosen One will yell at him[181] to run in a similar fashion to that scene from the movie Toy Story (1995) in which Woody pretends to be Buzz by holding his dismembered arm out Sid's window and waving it at the other toys. Upon inspecting the sarcophagus: "Hey, wait a minute. That's not a Mummy. That's a ghoul. WOODY! Hey WOODY! Is that you? Holy shit! That *is* Woody! Run Woody, run for it! Well, uh, gimp for it then! Go Woody go!" The exact lines are not remembered, but in Toy Story it goes something like this: "Hey, wait a minute, that's not Buzz! That's WOODY! HEY WOODY! IS THAT YOU?"

Unwashed Villagers[edit | edit source]

There is a reference to The Unwashed Village community that's more than likely the oldest Fallout community in existence. The Unwashed Villagers present in a special encounter are some of the oldest and most respected members of the Unwashed Village (though the situation has changed over time). The spammer they are fighting is the Grim Reaper or Grim, a legendary spammer who plagued the Interplay forum for a long time as the archnemisis of the UV.

Several members have unique entries in Fallout 2, including Buffy (Rebecca Dyer, who runs the bar in the first town), Thrakazog (in an entry in a Hubologist holodisk), and The Enlightened One (in NCR).

The Unwashed Village community is still in existence and still thriving at Unwashed.eu combining both members old and new, they are still devoted to the Fallout community and the part they played in Fallout history.

Wall Street[edit | edit source]

In Gecko, there is a ghoul outside the old incomplete reactor up north named Gordon, he is an allusion to Gordon Gekko, the main character of the 1987 film Wall Street. Gordon also says a speech similar to the one from the film:[191]

The new law of evolution in corporate America seems to be survival of the unfittest. Well, in my book, you either do it right or you get eliminated. In the last seven deals that I've been involved with, there were 2.5 million stockholders who have made a pre-tax profit of 12 billion dollars. [applause] Thank you. I am not a destroyer of companies. I am a liberator of them! The point is, ladies and gentlemen, that greed, for lack of a better word, is good. Greed is right, greed works. Greed clarifies, cuts through, and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit. Greed, in all of its forms: greed for life, for money, for love, knowledge, has marked the upward surge of mankind. And greed, you mark my words, will not only save Teldar Paper, but that other malfunctioning corporation called the USA. Thank you very much.

Gordon Gekko, Wall Street

WarGames[edit | edit source]

The medical terminal on the first floor inside Vault 8 will randomly say "Strange game. The only winning move is not to play."[4] This is a clear reference to the NORAD supercomputer artificial intelligence WOPR (War Operation Plan Response) of WarGames.

We Don't Need Another Hero (Thunderdome)[edit | edit source]

Once the player completes the main quest Stop the Enclave several characters sing We Don't Need Another Hero (Thunderdome) sung by Tina Turner which played over the end titles of the film Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. Including; junkies and Wright teenagers, whom sing "We don't need another hero, we don't need to know the way home...".[192][193] On Second Street of New Reno, huddled around a trashcan fire next to the Jungle Gym, is a three member band Frenchy, Paine, and Sims whom aslo sing this song.[194]

  • In the special encounter Tin Woodsman, the player character encounters someone standing, rigid and unmoving, in power armor, saying repeatedly, "Oil can". When the player uses a nearby oil can on the figure's armor, the Tin Woodsman walks away, after gifting the Chosen One 150 Microfusion cells.
  • If the player character is wearing power armor, the New Reno prostitutes may make this comment; "Look, Tin Man, if you want me to dress up as Dorothy or Toto, that's extra."[197]
  • Casino patrons in New Reno sometimes ask, "Lose your heart, tin man?", this is an allusion to the Tin Man in The Wizard of Oz.[198]
  • After defeating the Enclave, Eldridge will sing, "Ding-dong, the Enclave's dead, the Enclave's dead", an altered form of the song the munchkins sing after the Wicked Witch of the West is killed by a Dorothy's falling house: "Ding-dong, the Witch is dead, the Witch is dead!"[199]
  • There is a subtle mention in The Den. If the Chosen One asks Vic's guard who is boss is he will respond by questioning why you would walk into a place you know nothing about. At which point the Chosen One can respond that they thought that they were in Kansas.[200]

  35. Fallout Bible 5 Questions: "8. Hi, In the last "Fallout Bible" update there was a question about Richard Grey and why he was exiled from Vault City. I remember that there was another person exiled from the VC - Leonard Boyarski. He also was exiled for a murder but I'm curious how did he die? I've found his grave on the Golgotha and it's quite surprising. ps. If there are any mistakes, sorry for my English. :-)
    Boyarsky was an in-joke to Leonard Boyarsky who originally worked on F1 and parts of F2 (one of the five billion developer references in Fallout 1 and 2). I think the name was originally Jason Anderson in the text, but I don't remember. Boyarsky was exiled for murder and unauthorized research (the research allegations revolved around some tampering with the pregnancy cycles in the Auto-Doc that apparently put all of Vault 8 in danger, but the details were deleted from the Vault 8 computer). His crime occurred many years after Grey's alleged crime, but Boyarsky only got as far as Reno with a traveling caravan before he was robbed and killed by Reno toughs who saw him as an easy mark (which pretty much is true for everyone traveling from Vault City). His reasons for traveling south were unknown, but it is rumored his original destination was east of Reno - even though explorers report there is nothing out there except desert and deathclaws."

  99. Fallout Bible 5:
    "59c. The other question was about renewing. I had always killed the rat God before I got to necropolis. Now I know (as of about 3 days ago actually) that renewing was the term the ghouls used for becoming truly human again. (I had just asked what it was before and what the heck the ghouls meant.) Any further info on renewing would be much apreciated. (though I don't expect you to explain how to actually do it or anything it remained pretty vauge in fallout2 and I just couldn't find a way to get it to happen. Everytime I tried to optimise the plant Vault city would wipe out the ghouls. Was it actually doable or just a clever ruse from the brain to take over the world? (he never did in my games and i didn't have to do anything to stop him, like in the cartoon his plans fall apart on their own I suppose) Thanks for your time once again.
    It was not possible for the ghouls to "renew" in Fallout 2 - it was part of the Brain's plans to get them human again (under his control). It is possible to save Gecko and VC - one of the walkthroughs on the Fallout fan sites should have info on it.
    And here's what the Brain specifically has to say about Renewal:
    The Brain: Well as part of my plan to rule the world I intend to reward my Ghoul followers by finding a way to restore their humanity.
    Chosen One: How are you going to do that?
    The Brain: When I unite Gecko and Vault City under my rulership I will dedicate Vault City's medical labs to finding a way to reverse the effects of radiation that turned the people into Ghouls. They will be renewed, reborn, as humans once again.
    And:
    The Brain: In order to take over the world I have to make sure that there's something worth taking over. I need to build a strong powerbase using Gecko and Vault City.
    Chosen One: A rat plotting to take over the world?
    The Brain: Well, despite your feelings about a rodent ruling the world; the actions I propose would benefit thousands of Vault City and Gecko's citizens. You may not care for me or my motives but the results are still well worth working towards.
    Also, according to designer Matt Norton, "renew" was also a reference to the movie (and book) 'Logan's Run.'"

  174. Fallout Bible 6: "4. What happened to..."
    "a. Skynet"
    "Skynet's fate is undocumented. If I was to speculate, he left the player and began to travel west into the wasteland, looking for terminals and data to acquire more knowledge, collect more data, and perhaps "settle down" in a mainframe. The frame he was in, and the brain he had could only store so much information, and AIs need more data storage space to grow in order to evolve. It is possible he made his way to the Glow, but it's not known for sure. Any fan writers out there, feel free to round out what happened to him - considering his combat messages alone, the world's in for some shakin'."
    "In the official universe, Skynet is not his real name. Like some other aspects in the Sierra Army Depot (i.e., the news reports), it needs to be revised into the timeline. Sue me."
