{000}{}{Well? What is it?}
{000}{}{If it's worth more to you than dying on Golgotha because you welched on a debt, that's your problem. I'd think
about it, if I were you.}

# 23. KNOW WHERE MY CAR IS? (20)

# 24. GOT ANYTHING YOU THINK I SHOULD KNOW? (20)
{430}{}{Well...know that Eldridge fella that runs New Reno Arms? He says he does weapon upgrades, but I never see him do any work. Might be worthwhile to check out his place...but you didn't hear that from me.}
{000}{}{All right then, Monte. We're even.}
# 25. MONTE_BEATEN (WTG)
{435}{}{(Monte frowns as he sees you.) Look, I ain't running no games today, all right? Blow.}

{000}{}{Okay. I had some other questions...}
{000}{}{Nevermind then, Monte. I'm outta here.}
# 27. NOPE. (26)
{450}{}{You deaf? That amount ain't even enough to interest me.}
{000}{}{How about I suggest another amount...?}
{000}{}{I had some other questions...}
{000}{}{Nevermind then, Monte. I'm outta here.}
# 28. OKAY. (26)
{460}{}{Well, it ain't THAT dear to me. It's yours, pal. (He glances to the right and left, then reaches down and pulls off his boot. He twists off the heel and pulls out a playing card from inside.) Here ya go. Take care of it.}
{000}{}{I had some other questions...}
{000}{}{Thanks, Monte. Always a pleasure.}

{000}{}{You making me another offer? Look, I told you I AIN'T going talk about it.}
{000}{}{A thousand chips change your mind? I got it with me.}
{000}{}{Not even for 750 chips?}
{000}{}{How about 500 chips?}
{000}{}{250 chips sound about right?}
{000}{}{Uh...Gologtha?}

{000}{}{Nevermind then, Monte. I'm outta here.}
# 35. PRETTY BOY, SURE (33)
{515}{}{Thaaaat's about right. (Grins evilly.) Look, you ain't heard it from me, but if I was you, I'd check out the basement of the Desperado on Virgin Street. There's a lot of "rats" there, if you catch my drift.}

{000}{}{Got it. Thanks.}
# 36. KNOW WHERE MY CAR IS? (29, 37)

{565}{}{My bets on Renesco, that old asshole who runs the pharmacy on the west side. I don't know if he sold it TO the kid for sure, but he knows SOMETHING. (Glances around) That's all I'm gonna say.}
{000}{}{I had some other questions...}
{000}{}{All right then, Monte. Thanks.}
# 44. WHY DON'T YOU GIVE ME THAT CARD? (19)
{570}{}{(He glances around, then reaches down and pulls off his boot. He twists off the heel and pulls out a card...on the card
is a man with a strange hat, wielding a club.) Interested? It's genuine pre-war memorabilia.}
{000}{}{No, I already have enough inventory items... I'd rather have some information instead.}
