Added DiffLines:

--> '''Enclave Communications Officer''': The President of the United-fucking-States-of-America. Who'd you think I was talking about? Who the fu - Who is - What - I should kick your fucking ass, who is this?


Added DiffLines:

** Asking the small-of-stature boxing manager Stuart Little if he has ever worked in a circus causes him to launch into a fourth-wall breaking rant about making generalizations based on looks.
--> '''Stuart Little''': "I've taken in your ridiculously overly-muscled physique, your gritty [[Film/MadMax Mad Maxx]] wanna-be demeanor, your unimaginative character point allocation and concluded you are a mini-maxing {{Munchkin}}. You are nothing more than a typical 'RPG male hero model,' if you will, one of MANY such models that seems to fill this world in droves. But do you see the TRAGEDY here? I have mistakenly reduced you to a stereotype, a caricature, a generic Fallout model, instead of regarding you as a specific, unique character."
--> '''Chosen One''': "Uh, but Stuart, I AM a typical hero model. In fact, I am the player character of this game."


Added DiffLines:

* GirlOnGirlIsHot: In a mildly disturbing example, the reaction of Grisham in Modoc when he catches a female Chosen One having sex with his daughter.
--> '''Grisham:''' "I can't say I'm not just a little turned on by this, but I can't have her living in this house now that I've seen it. You two are going to get hitched and leave."

** Salvatore's respiratory problems can be exploited by stealing his oxygen tank to kill him via slow suffocation. Or you can replace his o2 tank with poison gas.

Added DiffLines:

* ItsAWonderfulFailure: If you were to die during your adventure, sometimes the [[Creator/RonPerlman narrator]] will describe how your village withered away without the G.E.C.K.
** It's even worse in the last part of the game. [[spoiler: If you were to lose against [[BigBad the Enclave]], during the game over screen, the narrator describes that with you out of the picture, the Enclave released the FEV virus into the earth's atmosphere and thus successfully wiping out what was left of the human race other than the Enclave themselves.]]

* ShotgunWedding: Sleep with one of Grisham's children, and, unless you pass a Speech check, you will be forced to go through one of these if you don't want the whole town of Modoc trying to kill you on sight. Thankfully there is no penalty for causing your spouse harm, so feel free to get her/him killed, pimped out for spare change, sold to slavery or divorce her/him by paying Father Tully with a alcoholic beverage. For extra cruelty, you can tell your former father-in-law about the death of his child, which will give him a fatal heart attack.

* WretchedHive: The Den ([[StarWars which is actually referred to as such]]) and New Reno. Depending on your actions, they can become ''much'' better places. New Reno in particular is notable in that it already ''was'' one even before the Great War. Unlike [[VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas what would became New Vegas]] however, no bombs fell in or around the city but the ensuing chaos plunged Reno into lawlessness, from which the local crime families quickly emerge as the dominant "law." And by the time ''New Vegas'' takes place, there are still shades of that seediness, if the comments of people from there, the song ''Streets of New Reno,'' and references to the powerful Bishop crime family under the Chosen One's bastard child are any indication.

* TimedMission: Played Straight, Averted ''and'' Subverted. The main GECK quest has no time limit unlike the first game (despite Hakunin coming to you in visions to urge you to hurry.) However, the entire game has a 13-year time limit due to technical limitations, which causes the game to abruptly end with a short cinematic when it's reached. However, you'd be likely to to everything there is to do in the game in only 2-3 years, so it's very unlikely to be an issue unless the game's been expanded with unofficial mod content.

** One minor sidequest in Modoc results in blowing up an outhouse and covering part the town in shit. Only the traders in the section of town you blew up, the Bed & Breakfast ever comment on this; asking that you stand downwind of them while they try to eat their meal.
