Get Chip's spleen
Chip really needs his spleen back.
He was drunk. Very, very drunk. He was obsessed with his spleen all night long. And then he bet it.”— Lao Chou
Find Chip's spleenEdit
Speak to Lao Chou, at the Flying Dragon 8 general store, and he'll inform you that he gave the spleen away to Dr. Wong Yi Tze. He had no use for a spleen, after all.
Ask Dr. Wong about Chip's spleen. He intends to eat it with fava beans and a light chianti. Complete the Hannibal Lecter reference, and tell him that the spleen is human (you get one option to do so). You'll receive 2000 XP.
Go back to Chip, then he will want you to ask Dr. Fung out in Chinatown to put his spleen back in for him. Talk to Dr. Fung, and ask him to put it back. You'll need to pay $1000 for Chip to get the surgery. If you talked to Dr. Fung about meeting his friend, who is a doctor in Broken Hills, he will do it for free.
Talk to Chip again - he'll tell you to wait for a day, then get back to him. Afterwards, he'll leave the tanker.
Visit the same place again, Chip will be there (with his spleen intact) and you'll get another 3000 XP.
Meeting with Dr. HolidayEdit
- 5000 XP.
- If you just tell him Chip wants the spleen back you won't get it (only when you tell him the spleen is human you'll get it). Also, he won't give it to you if you angered him previously with the "shoved a gun under your nose" dialogue option.
- Note that this quest is timed, and Chip will die of his spleenless condition if the quest is unresolved five days after you first agree to help.
- If you have joined the Hubologists after you talked to Chip and got the quest, Dr. Fung will refuse to chat with you.
Behind the scenesEdit
The whole spleen dialogue with Dr. Wong is a reference to The Silence of the Lambs.
