- ED-E My Love: Talking about technology with Rivas when ED-E is in your party will trigger an audio log.
- That Lucky Old Sun: Rivas will give you Eastern reflector control terminal password need to access the reflector mainframe. He also tells the player that he suspects Helios One may be more than a simple energy plant, as Poseidon Energy was also concerned with weapons. He also remarks that it is convenient that the NCR hired an idiot who will not figure out the true purpose of the plant. He only reveals this information if he feels the player will not use this information to arm the secret weapons, Archimedes I and Archimedes II.

- When speaking to Ignacio with Intelligence 3 or lower, you have unique topics such as: "Me help shoulders make shinies warm," "Who are Flowers of Pock-lips?" and "Do Flowers and NCR Bear play together?" It's also possible to respond with "pizza" and "warm" instead of "peace" and "war" when he asks you which you support.
- If you have completed Eyesight to the Blind and are a member of the Brotherhood of Steel, you can mention it to Ignacio who will be relieved to have you there to help.
- If you are male, you can flirt with him if you have the Confirmed Bachelor perk.
