'''"Gob" Gobtholemew'''<ref>Name used in ''Fallout 3 Official Guide'' (page 1, section: main characters)</ref> is a [[ghoul]] bartender who works at [[Moriarty's Saloon]] in [[Megaton]] in the year [[Timeline#2277|2277]].
Gob used to live in [[Underworld]] with his adoptive "mother", [[Carol]], in [[Carol's Place]]. He set out into the [[Wasteland]] to find fortune and was caught by a group of slavers. [[Colin Moriarty]] then purchased him as his slave. He works for Colin Moriarty to repay the debt presumably incurred when Moriarty purchased Gob from the [[slaver]]s. Gob has been working to repay his debt for 15 years, since [[Moriarty]] also charges Gob for rent and food.
On a more personal note, if you're following the main quest as soon as you leave the vault, Gob seems to be one of the most friendly people you meet as well as the first ghoul.
==Daily schedule==
Gob spends most of his time serving drinks and talking with the patrons in Moriarty's saloon. At night, he'll eventually go to sleep in the rentable room, sometimes resting for a few hours and then starting up the saloon in the early morning hours. During his working hours, he'll be cleaning glasses, communicating with people ("What, you never seen a ghoul before?") and tidying up the place with a dirty broom. The first time the player enters the saloon, Gob will be hitting the radio, trying to fix it. It is located on the table, with [[Nova]] trying to explain to him it doesn't work, and [[Jericho]] (if he is present) cursing him to stop banging on it. After the player completes the [[Galaxy News Radio (quest)|Galaxy News Radio]] quest, the radio will function properly, though Gob will never comment on its improvement.

|quests involved =*[[Following in His Footsteps]]
* [[Following in His Footsteps]]: If you pass a [[Speech]] check with Gob, he will tell you about Moriarty's terminal. If you ask him about the terminal afterward he will reveal that Nova has the password.
===Other interactions===
* When first meeting Gob, treating him kindly will provide a 10% discount at the saloon (and only from Gob, Moriarty will charge full price), gain the player some good karma, and reveal some more of his personal past. The discount is especially useful as Gob remains a cheap source of [[Stimpak (Fallout 3)|stimpak]]s for the entire game. You lose the chance to obtain this discount if you first talk to Gob after Moriarty is killed.
** If on first meeting the player says to Gob, "Stuff it, ghoul.", or, "Gah! What the fuck are you?" and is not kind for the rest of the conversation, he will refer to you as a dick every time you ask for a drink.
==Effects of player actions==
* If you kill Moriarty, Gob will eventually take over the saloon and place his name over Moriarty's on the front sign. However, he gets no new speech options and in no other way acknowledges Moriarty's absence. Nova will begin running the hotel and quit prostituting once Gob is in charge.

* In non-player character to non-player character conversation, [[Nova]] can be heard telling Gob that she has "arranged time" for the two of them, though at another point she tells the player that there are "some places even I won't go".
* In non-player character to non-player character conversation, Gob will tell Nova that he pulled aside a specific bottle of wine that makes her "uninhibited", to which she calls him "Gobbie", before he states he'd do anything for her.
* If you kill anyone in Megaton, Gob will then say: "Dont shoot! Dont shoot! Just tell me what you want!" Everytime you interact with him.
* If Mr. Burke kills [[Lucas Simms]] in the Saloon, Gob will complain about it ' taking forever to clean the blood stains from the floor '.
* If [[Lone Wanderer]] is not friendly with Gob (calling him a zombie first time he meets Gob), he won't tell you about Moriarty's terminal.
* Gob will most likely be the first ghoul character you meet if you go straight to Megaton after leaving Vault 101.
* On the other hand, there will be a discount shall the player character choose the kind dialogue with Gob.
==Notable quotes==
* ''"Well, now that's a surprise! I'm used to every asshole smoothskin in this town giving me shit 'cause I look like a corpse."''
* ''"Moriarty'd have my head if he saw me chargin' at a discount, but for you, I'll risk it."''
* ''"Oh, hey! I'm glad you're here. Moriarty's been especially nasty lately and I needed a friendly face."''
* ''"Goddamn radio won't work!"''
* ''"Don't hit me!"''
Gob appears only in ''[[Fallout 3]]''.
==Behind the scenes==
* There is a slight inconsistency regarding the origin of Gob's name. While yelling at Gob in random non-player character to non-player character conversation, [[Moriarty]] says, "Shut yer gob, Gob! Ain't that why I named you that to begin with, 'cause you talk too goddamn much?"; yet [[Carol]] knows exactly who the player means by "Gob," though she never met Moriarty or knew that he called him "Gob."
* If the player manages to complete the Galaxy News Radio quest without ever stepping foot into Moriarty's saloon, Gob will still complain about the radio's reception upon entry to which Nova replies, "I told you Gob, it ain't the radio... it's Galaxy News. Their signal's been shit lately."
* In non-player character to non-player character conversation, Gob could be heard telling Moriarty "What's the matter never saw a ghoul before?" regardless of Moriarty's status.
* {{Platforms|xbox360}} Even after Moriarty is dead, Gob will sometimes greet you with the "Moriarty's been especially nasty lately" line.
* If you listen closely while talking to Gob, you would notice that when you ask "Where do you come from?", his three answers will be voiced differently.
