  • The Screams of Brahmin: Alice knows that something has been killing her husband's brahmin lately, but that's about it. She tells the player character to speak to her husband for more information.
  • One for My Baby: Alice is one of several Novac residents that can be framed for the enslavement of Carla Boone and brought up to the front of the Dinosaur, leading Craig Boone to shoot and kill her in an act of revenge.

Effects of player's actionsEdit

If Dusty dies the player will no longer be able to engage Alice in dialogue. When prompted Alice will only express worry for Dusty's whereabouts, even if he was killed right in front of her.

Notable quotesEdit

  • "But now with all the danger on I-15, folks are starting to come through here from all over. Novac might just be the next Nevada boom town."
  • "Oh! Well I'm Alice and that handsome stranger yonder is my husband Dusty. Going on fifty years, now. I keep waiting for him to leave me for some young thing with platinum blonde hair and hoop earrings, but he still sticks around. Says it's my cooking. I think it's because I know which Brahmin udder you can milk without getting kicked in the noggin."
  • "Not that there ain't others who pry around here. That No-bark was skulking around our yard last week. I thought he was our cow-killer. Was about to lash him with our bullwhip till I saw who it was. He's harmless, though. Part of me wishes I could see things like he sees 'em, all full of mystery."
