Hello. Could you please direct me to mistress Tabitha?— Rhonda when repaired

Rhonda is a deactivated Mister Handy found in the Black Mountain storage building in 2281.


Rhonda was Tabitha's best friend before the super mutants came to Black Mountain.

At some point, Rhonda became deactivated and was left inside the Storage Building. Raul Tejada eventually made his way to Black Mountain after he no longer heard the broadcasts being transmitted, and was soon made a captive by Tabitha. He was tasked to fix Rhonda and while he was able to handle the mechanical issues, he lacked the competence for the programming problems of the robot. This, in turn, prevented Rhonda from being activated and caused Raul to be imprisoned indefinitely.

Reactivating Rhonda requires a Science skill of 60. If the Courier reactivates Rhonda and leads it to Tabitha, they will complete the quest "Crazy, Crazy, Crazy", as Rhonda and Tabitha wander off together.

Effects of player's actionsEdit

If Tabitha died before Rhonda was repaired, she will ask what happened to Tabitha. When informed about Tabitha's death, Rhonda will immediately turn hostile on the Courier.

  • A peaceful resolution to the situation with Tabitha requires not letting three days of in-game time pass between the moment when first encountering Rhonda and the moment when trying to repair her. Rhonda will disappear from the game if her room is left and returned to in three days, due to her being set to never respawn.
  • Reactivating Rhonda and spending too long in the supply room will summon Tabitha and both will initiate combat.
  • After reuniting Rhonda and Tabitha, it is possible to sneak up to Rhonda and deactivate her with the Robotics Expert perk. Tabitha will then simply stand behind Rhonda and will still talk as if following her. Tabitha will not become hostile and there seems to be no way to reactivate Rhonda.
  • Rhonda becomes a temporary companion after reactivating her. However Tabitha will always talk to the Courier before they leave Black Mountain or even can engage in combat.


Rhonda appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
