Effects of the player's actions
- If convinced to leave home, she will sometimes be at the Old Mormon Fort in Freeside, the Aerotech Office Park with Vault 34 survivors (if they were saved in Hard Luck Blues) in Aerotech suite 300, Hoover Dam, Hidden Valley Bunker, at Camp Golf, near Freeside's North Gate, or in Novac. When interacted with, she will say "Good to see you again. I'm just passing through here. Staying at this refugee camp under the wing of NCR thugs is the last thing on my mind."
Alice has a few unique animations, such as when she flails her arms around or reads the note (if that option is selected).
Alice Hostetler appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
- Playstation 3 Sometimes after the quest is complete and you convinced Alice to leave, she will run up to you and engage in conversation only saying "Howdy" before running off with a gun in her hand. [verified]
- Xbox 360 Sometimes Alice will sit down at the table in the main room, and her fingers will move like she is typing on a computer and you will hear clicking noises of a keyboard, even though there is no computer there. [verified]
