“Are you soliciting me?”— the Courier when asked for a cap
For one cap, here are all of the things Rotface might say:
- Think twice before hiring a bodyguard at the gates; they aren't all saints.
- Freeside is run by a pack of yahoos called the Kings. Their leader, The King, is trying to prevent an all-out riot in Freeside.
- I saw The King take his robo-dog to the Old Mormon Fort. The dog was flipping out.
- Pacer pissed off the Van Graffs big time, and now they want him dead.
- The Followers of the Apocalypse run a place in the Old Mormon Fort, and they're great for healing.
- Mick and Ralph run a store just down the street, and sell some unexpected wares.
- Ralph is no slouch at the keyboard, and has competently reprogrammed several robots in his free time.
- Apparently, some of the clientele over at the Atomic Wrangler casino are making strange escort requests, including the service of ghouls.
- Apparently, the Garrets over at the Atomic Wrangler casino are having a hard time collecting money owed to them.
- At the northwest end of Freemont street is a place run by the scary Van Graffs - but if lasers are your thing, it's the place to go.
- Mention the NCR in Freeside, and people get on edge. There's talk that they're going to roll over New Vegas.
- There are two types of folks here in Freeside; those who have lived here all their lives, and those who came in here with the NCR. Each blame each other for problems.
- There's no life for squatters in Freeside; those arriving for a better life just got stuck.
- Life has been a bit bad for the Squatters, but lately they have been a bit optimistic.
- Drugs are everywhere in Freeside, and they affect the lives of those you wouldn't normally expect: Jacob Hoff was a brilliant chemist before he turned to chems. A King called Pacer is also a fan of jet but it is dangerous for his heart.
- No one knows the first thing about Mr. House. He just showed up a few years ago. Who the hell is he?
- The Strip is run by three families who owe their allegiance to Mr. House, who told them to ally with him, or leave.
- Those big metal murder machines stop anyone from entering The Strip. But if you know the right people, you can get through without being rich.
- The Chairmen run The Tops Casino. But security is tight, and you can't bring weapons there.
- The Omertas are one of Mr. House's Three Families, and they run a casino called Gomorrah on The Strip. It lives up to its name and reputation.
- Rumor has it that The White Glove Society was an all-ghoul gang, which is why they wear those masks.
- There's a guy on the main drag who sells second-hand adventuring gear. But where does he come from?
- A passing traveler told everyone there's a plant paradise to the west were food is abundant. Some people listened to him, left to find it, and never came back.
- There's some kind of underground fights going on, pitting beasts against each other.
- The Gun Runners sell just about every type of firearm you could imagine, and some you probably couldn't.
- East of Freeside is an air force base, but no one knows what's inside, as anyone who approaches has been violently blown up.
- I reckon there's a huge army camped to the east, massing to attack the NCR.
- Traders are griping that the old I-15 is too dangerous. Stay clear of it unless you're armed to the teeth.
- A town to the south was attacked, and the lack of refugees means the attack was not so bad - or very, very bad.
- The NCR used to run a prison to the southwest, but they don't talk about it any more.
- After buying enough tips from him, he will appear with a new hat, which appears to be an expensive cowboy hat. If he is killed, it can be seen that the hat is Eulogy Jones' hat.
- None of his tips start a quest or add a map marker.

- In content cut from the game, this quest had various potential outcomes. Rotface would buy a whole new suit with his newfound wealth and ask the player character's opinion on the investment. Based on the response, the next time he was encountered Rotface would buy a gun and attempt to mug the player character, leave Freeside to seek his fortune, join the Followers of the Apocalypse or be murdered by a Freeside thug for his newfound wealth.
