Notable quotesEdit

  • "Heh, you've got moxy, buddy, but we don't take kindly to tourists on our turf. 100 caps should cover this trip into our territory."
  • "No fucking way. We're deserters now, the NCR isn't going to throw us a ticker-tape parade for going home."
  • "I like to think that we are Prisoners Of War that managed to escape before capture. I don't know how long it'll be before the Legion crosses the river, but sure as fuck I don't want to be wearing an NCR uniform when they get here."


Layla appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
