  • When speaking to her directly, she has the voice of a young girl; when she speaks outside of direct dialogue, her voice changes to that of a woman.
  • Watkins has an ongoing, mutual dislike of Veronica Santangelo. When the Courier is accompanied by Veronica, she will make a snide comment to Watkins about her lazy eye. Watkins will reply "I see you're still hiding your hair with that hood." On subsequent visits to Watkins' area, Veronica will angrily mutter "Watkins!", while cheerily greeting other named characters in the Bunker.
  • Paladin Ramos says that he was going to save Stanton and Watkins, but that she is a hell of a shot.
