  • Growing Up Fast - once Andy eviscerates the cake with his circular saw, Butch accosts the Lone Wanderer and demands that they gives up the sweet roll. The player has a variety of options for response: a simple dismissal, an attempt to share, a spiteful spit on the roll before giving it up, to a vicious verbal jab at his mother's drinking habits. Most responses will provoke Butch to get up and begin throwing punches at the player, which prompts Officer Gomez to intervene.


  • The player can eat the sweetroll before Butch has a chance of asking you for it, which will then activate a different scenario: Butch tells them that they'll "get it later".
  • The player can also drop the sweetroll on the ground before Butch confronts them, prompting a speech option about "throwing the sweetroll away".
  • Planting the sweetroll on Butch will result in the above two options appearing.

Delighted you take it into an ally to enjoy, only to be intercepted by a gang of three kids your age. The leader demands the sweetroll, or else he and his friends will beat you and take it. Do you: ..."
  • The model for sweetrolls originate from The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.
