  • Max will say "Reach for the sky, lady," if the player character is female, and "Reach for the sky, mister," if the player character is male.
  • When attempting to pickpocket Max the selection will say Talk instead of Pickpocket, yet when pressed he may be pickpocketed.
  • Sometimes, he will run out of Freeside's east gate while following Stacey.
  • Sometimes, he may disappear entirely, Stacey will be "fleeing" on top of the building next to Mick & Ralph's. The cause is unknown; however, this happens more often if the Courier has bad Karma.
  • If prompted into dialogue mode after Euclid's C-Finder is taken, he will say "I wish I had a gun."
  • Sometimes he will not have the Euclid's C-Finder equipped when chasing Stacey, but the gun can be found in his inventory.
  • Strangely enough, Max can hold a fifteen pound energy weapon with one hand, even though he is a small child.
  • Acquiring the weapon from Max while having Veronica as a companion will cause her to remark "Wow... Good thing the safety was on."
  • Max is found sleeping on the roof of the building next to Mick & Ralph's after it gets dark.
  • Max, like Stacey, will never become hostile, no matter how many times he's punched.

Notable quotesEdit


Max appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.

Behind the scenesEdit

An additional dialogue option exists which would allow the player to obtain Euclid's C-Finder for free. However, this dialogue option requires the cut Child at Heart perk, which was removed owing to the small number of children in the Mojave Wasteland.[verify]
