Mama Murphy's chair is a constructible settlement object in Fallout 4.


After being rescued from Concord and given jet, Mama Murphy will claim to be tired and ask for a chair.

Upon the construction of her chair she will thank Sole Survivor and additional dialogue will become available. This will also allow the eventual use of the "Sight" to aid the journey, in exchange for various chems.


Mama Murphy's chair is located under Special in the Workshop and can only be crafted during The Sight.
