Interactions with the player character Edit
Interactions overview Edit

Other interactions Edit
Max will sell
Euclid's C-Finder upon request for 1000 caps, but by passing a Barter check of 45, will sell it for only 20 caps.
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 bending down to pickpocket Max it does not say Pickpocket, it says Talk yet when pressed you pickpocket him.
Sometimes, he will run out of Freeside's east gate, 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 player has bad Karma.
If prompted into dialogue mode after you've taken Euclid's C-Finder, he will say "I wish I had a gun".
Sometimes he will not have the Euclid's C-Finder equipped when chasing Stacey, the gun can be found in his inventory and can be stolen.
Strangely enough, Max can hold a 15 lb heavy 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.

Behind the scenes Edit
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]
If you pickpocket him and then talk to him he will still offer the Euclid's C-Finder for sale, thus allowing you to obtain another.
