Ah, but surgery was fun while it lasted...

Andy is a Mister Handy robot in Vault 101 in Fallout 3.


Andy works in Vault 101 under constant supervision from Stanley Armstrong. Due to a lack of specific motor parts, he is prone to articulated blade spasms: for example, at the Lone Wanderer's 10th birthday party, Andy disastrously attempts to cut the birthday cake. This leads to an apt tile: Mister Liability.[1]

After James' escape from the vault, Andy is assigned to be the vault's new medic.[2] In his one surgical operation, Andy decides to treat Beatrice's sprained big toe by amputating the whole leg. He amputates the wrong leg, and Beatrice dies as a result.[3] Andy is reassigned as a cleaner, rather ironically the first job being cleaning up the mess he made from Beatrice.[4]

Notable quotes

  • Careful! The floor may still be a bit wet over here. Wouldn't want you to slip and crack your skull open, now would we?
  • "Ah, young sir/madame! How very good to see you again. I do suppose you’re looking for your father the doctor. Tsk tsk tsk. I’m afraid you’ve missed him. I believe he’s gone topside for a spot of fresh air! Should be back any moment, I’d imagine!"
  • "Ah, another patient! What's it to be, eh? Appendectomy? Tonsillectomy? Hysterectomy?"
  • "Ah, human problems for human hearts. I don't trouble myself with such petty affairs. My work is my life! And as you can see, I've been quite busy..." (When questioned about the state of affairs.)
  • Cut: If I may be so bold, the blue in the vault suit contrasts brilliantly with your eyes! <mutters: Stupid git.> [5]


Andy appears only in Fallout 3.



  1. Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition p.60: "Andy
    Under constant supervision from Stanley Armstrong, Andy is a Mister Handy robot, although a more apt title would be "Mister Liability." Due to a lack of specific motor parts, Andy is prone to articulated blade spasms, which have already claimed a cake."
    (Fallout 3 Official Game Guide Game of the Year Edition Wasteland Census)
  2. The Lone Wanderer: "Wait... they made you the doctor?"
    Andy: "But of course! With your father's departure from the vault, and Jonas's untimely demise, the Overseer had to take swift action! And so he named me the new vault medical practitioner! A marvelous decision, if I do say so myself! I am fully equipped, after all."
    (Andy's dialogue (Fallout 3))
  3. The Lone Wanderer: "Andy, what happened? All this blood..."
    Andy: "Ah, yes. A rather unfortunate incident. In all the commotion, Miss Beatrice suffered from a rather bad sprain in her left toe. The big one. Obviously, I had no choice but to amputate. The leg. I'm sorry to say the operation was not a success."
    (Andy's dialogue (Fallout 3))
  4. The Lone Wanderer: "If you're the new doctor, can you heal me?"
    Andy: "Um, actually... no. I'm afraid I've been... What's the human term? Ah yes. "Fired." I've been reassigned to cleaning detail. My first duty is, somewhat ironically, cleaning the clinic! Ah, but surgery was fun while it lasted..."
    (Andy's dialogue (Fallout 3))
