A new fully-automated janitorial system was installed at the Sunset Sarsaparilla bottling plant, located on the west side of Las Vegas. Consisting of three maintenance-model Mister Handy robots (MHDY133, MHDY134, and MHDY135), the system was designed to replace several custodial positions in the plant, which would have been very tedious to perform by hand.
The robot with the identification number "MHDY135," nicknamed "Mr. Janitor," was a big favorite of the staff at the Sunset Sarsaparilla plant. He was especially recognized for doing a better job at cleaning up stray bottle caps than the earlier models of his type. Without the beloved robot on the job, stray bottle caps on the factory floor would have caused serious damage to the machinery.
When activated by the terminal in the janitor's closet (50 Science required), he will roam around the bottom floor commenting on how dirty everything has gotten over "the past few days," and that "this room is even dirtier than the last one!" Mr. Janitor also comments on the Courier if approached or if they kill another of the robots in Mr. Janitor's presence, asking "what are you savages doing here?" Eventually, Mr. Janitor will end his cleaning patrol, dump a random amount of bottle caps into the garbage, and shut down again back in his janitor's closet.
Mr. Janitor's primary objective is to pick up all of the bottle caps in the Sunset Sarsaparilla headquarters first floor. When he is done with his job, he will deposit all bottle caps into a garbage can. The amount of bottle caps usually varies between 300 and 600. That amount is increased greatly if the player character has the Fortune Finder perk. Additionally, despite Mr. Janitor's primary function, a small number of bottle caps may still be found in the bottling section of the factory.
↑Sunset Sarsaparilla headquarters terminal entries: "I wanted to personally congratulate you on the success of the new automated janitorial system. In particular, #135 has proven very popular with the staff. I can't tell you how many complaints I sued to hear about stray bottle caps getting into the machinery. Oh, and we should have a meeting soon concerning the rest of the staff. How's Tuesday?"
