Dude, what a total haul. No way that's copasheshy.

Jack is an easy going drug dealer for the Great Khans living in the Red Rock Drug Lab in Fallout: New Vegas.


Jack and Diane are advisers to Papa Khan. The pair run a drug trafficking ring and supply the Great Khans with drugs as well. Jack learned chemistry from the Followers of the Apocalypse when they visited the Khans and uses this knowledge to make the drugs, while Diane handles the business end of the operation.[1] It is implied that they have an emotional attachment to each other,[2][3] or at least Jack does since he becomes upset when told that the Legion would put Diane into slavery and make her a prostitute.[4]

Jack is noticeably more laid back than the other Great Khan members, putting much less emphasis on the tribe's warrior culture, and often speaking in "stoner" slang. He even expresses sympathy for Jerry the Punk.[5]

Notable quotes

  • "Do? We don't, like, do anything. We make the magic happen."
  • "You seem really... high-strung. You know, I'm sure some of what I make my chems out of was an antipsychotic at some point...."
  • "Dude! What a total haul! No way that's copasheshy."
  • "Dude... wait, what? That's totally kakadoodle, man. You been huffing fumes in the Magic Bus or something?"
  • "I don't know what you've been smoking, but where can I get some?"


  • PCIcon pc.png PlayStation 3Icon ps3.png Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png When you give Jack a new recipe for a Chem, the screen will black out, and roughly a few hours pass. After that, the screen will zoom in (maybe to begin dialogue with him), and then zoom back out and have another time lapse.
  • PlayStation 3Icon ps3.png Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png Jack's speech challenge for the Oh My Papa quest (speech check 60) can be repeated an infinite number of times, even after the quest has been completed. This challenge earns 60 experience points each time it is performed, allowing the player to gain infinite experience points. However if you rescue the runner Diane said went missing, you will not be able to use this exploit. (Still works after patch 1.02 on Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png)
  • Xbox 360Icon xbox360.png After teaching Jack all of the chems in the quest Aba Daba Honeymoon and finishing Diane's portion of the quest, you may not be able to finish the mission or learn the Khan Trick unarmed attack.


Jack appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.


  1. The Courier: "How'd you get into this business?"
    Jack: "Guess I just had a natural talent for it. When I was a kid, these cats called the Followers of the Apocalypse came to our camp. They knew all kinds of kooky scientastical stuff, so I ate up all the chemistry they could teach. Diane had the head for business, so we teamed up."
    (Jack's dialogue (Great Khans))
  2. The Courier: "What would convince Jack and Diane to support me?"
    Regis: "You'd have to talk to them - but those two have been thick as thieves since they were kids. Convince one and the other will come around."
    (Regis' dialogue)
  3. The Courier: "Who's Diane?"
    Jack: "Diane's my girl, man. We've been taking care of each other our whole lives, ever since our folks died. Now we keep the Khans in caps together."
    (Jack's dialogue (Great Khans))
  4. The Courier: "But you won't have each other. The Legion will kill you and sell Diane into slavery as a prostitute."
    Jack: "[SUCCEEDED] Dude! What a total haul! No way that's copasheshy. Yeah, okay, me and Diana got your back. No sweat."
    (Jack's dialogue (Great Khans))
  5. The Courier: "Who's Jerry?"
    Jack: "Ah, the other dudes call him Jerry the Punk. That's kind of harsh, though - I think he's just a sensitive soul that needs some love. He's usually down around the proving ground if you want to say yo."
    (Jack's dialogue (Great Khans))
  6. The Courier: "Are you Anders? Jack and Diane sent me to look for you."
    Anders: "Thank God. Let me down, please! They did? Heh. Probably mostly Jack's idea, he always was the soft touch. Thanks. You've saved my life, and done the Great Khans a huge favor. I'll be heading back to Red Rock Canyon now - maybe we'll see each other there."
    (Anders' dialogue)
