Thank you for opening my eyes, stranger. I'll put my husband back on the straight and narrow, even if it KILLS him.Ethyl Wright

Bust up Wright's still beneath the train station is a quest in Fallout 2.


This quest is given when the Chosen One talks to Ethyl Wright about her husband's alcohol production and tells her to go check stills in the basement of the Railway Station herself. After that Ethyl asks to meet her next morning near the father Tully's church. There are several ways to approach the quest:

  • Destroy the stills/brewing vats (Reward: 500 XP)
    • By "repairing" them.
    • Using the Science skill on them.
    • By using a crowbar.
    • Myron can use his Science skills to destroy it.
    • Convincing Ethyl to destroy the still by herself (Reward: 500 XP)
    • It is also possible to drop a scorpion tail in brewing vats to poison the liquor and kill all city drunkards (-30 Karma).

After that, speaking with Ethyl and choosing the monetary reward gives the Louisville Slugger and a couple hundred bucks. Declining the reward gives +15 Karma.


  • Mrs. Wright will not give this quest to porn stars. If already received this quest and then becoming a Porn Star, then it is still possible to complete.
  • Beware, the Wrights can see the Chosen One destroying the still, and turn hostile on a failed Sneak check.
