Notable quotesEdit


Dr. Penske appears only in Fallout 4.


pcIcon pc ps4Icon ps4 xboxoneIcon xboxone Upon completion of Hole in the Wall she will no longer buy fertilizer from the player character. Instead she acts as a generic character on a rotation of set dialogue. In most instances, her dialogue will proceed to offer quest for fertilizers but it doesn't actually start the quest nor accepting fertilizers regardless when to talk to her.[verified]
