One for My Baby is a side quest in Fallout: New Vegas.

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

Novac's night watchman, Craig Boone, is convinced one of the townsfolk had to have been involved in his wife's sale to Caesar's Legion. Naturally, he wants to find the culprit and bring them to justice in his own way.

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

  1. Talk to Craig Boone about his missing wife.
  2. Ask around town to find more information about his wife and any leads as to who sold her to Caesar's Legion.
  3. Go to the Dino Dee-lite front desk, open the floor safe behind the desk, and take the bill of sale.
  4. Lead Jeannie May Crawford to the front of Dinky the Dinosaur between 10 P.M and 9 A.M, when Boone is at his post.
    1. Alternatively, take anyone else in town out to die.
  5. Equip Boone's beret. Soon after, the person out front will be killed by a headshot from Boone.
  6. Return to Boone, show him the Bill of Sale as evidence of Crawford's involvement. If someone other than Crawford was killed, a Speech check of 55 is required to fast talk him without any evidence.

Quest stages[edit | edit source]

1 Send someone in front of Dinky the Dinosaur. Put on the beret to signal to Boone that this is the culprit.
2 (Optional) Ask around Novac for information about who kidnapped Boone's wife.
3 (Optional) Look for evidence of the guilty party inside the Dino Dee-lite lobby.
4Quest finishedReturn to Boone.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Boone will refuse conversation with you if your relationship with the NCR is below Neutral; however, wearing NCR armor will make it possible to talk with him.
  • If you use Boone's beret to repair any other Beret before having him kill Jeannie May Crawford or anyone else, you cannot complete the quest. You need Boone's beret.
  • If you chose Jeannie May as Boone's target, the next time you speak to Cliff Briscoe, he will inform you that he is the new proprietor of the motel and gives you the key, you will have the option to say "I killed Jeannie May. Do I still get my discount?", although Boone was technically her killer. Should you choose this option, you will be asked why, and each possible reply produces slightly different reactions, but he will not turn hostile, nor will your reputation with Novac be damaged in any way. Indeed, given the nature of the situation, he seems rather untroubled, presenting the player with the usual dialogue choices.

  • PCIcon pc.png PlayStation 3Icon ps3.png Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png If you ask the wrong person to go in front of the dinosaur then talk to them about something else, they will become stuck and they do not return to their original location. After this you are no longer able to take Jeannie May Crawford in front of the dino, rendering the quest broken.
  • PCIcon pc.png Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png Sometimes you will not have the dialogue option to make Jeannie May follow you in front of the dinosaur. The best way to fix this is to talk to Jeannie outside when she leaves around midnight. If this doesn't work, simply exiting, then re-entering the Dino-Deelite Lobby or Jeannie May's house will bring back the dialogue option.
  • PCIcon pc.png Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png Binding Boone's Beret to a hotkey may result in the game freezing or crashing.
  • PlayStation 3Icon ps3.png Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png Sometimes, even if you have the bill of sale, you will not get the option to bring it up, even if Jeannie May is killed.
  • PlayStation 3Icon ps3.png Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png After completing the quest Boone's beret might remain in your inventory.
  • Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png Obtaining the evidence before talking to No-Bark will result in a quest completion for the optional objectives.
  • Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png Sometimes the evidence will not appear in the safe, halting your progress unless high enough speech is available to convince Boone without it.


  1. One For My Baby: A look back at Fallout: New Vegas's best quest "According to One For My Baby’s writer, Eric Fenstermaker, this quest was part of the original proof-of-concept for Fallout: New Vegas shown to Bethesda. It’s such a great, self-contained tone piece because, alongside ghoul-focused quest Come Fly With Me, it was originally meant to demonstrate all that Fallout: New Vegas would eventually become. Allowing the death of every major character in the game meant players could “get any major character in the town shot by Boone, for any reason you could concoct in your own mind,” said Fenstermaker."
