You look like a reasonable man, let's make a deal opens up the option for you to offer to help with Woodman's netrunner problem (you'll need 8 Intelligence) or pay for the info.

  • I'll tell the media everything.
  • Your bosses should know how you treat customers.
  • Could end you with my bare hands.
  • Let's not make this harder than it has to be.

Could end you with my bare hands and Let's not make this harder than it has to be both result in Woodman becoming violent. This throws you into a sort of boss fight—his health bar appears at the top of the screen, but he doesn't die after you defeat him, instead he just cowers on the floor. If you defeat him you can acquire a few goodies for your effort, including a M251s Ajax Power Assault Rifle, along with grenades and ammo.

Your bosses should know how you treat customers makes Johnny Silverhand appear and prompt you to talk about 'the cash angle' so you can tell Woodman you know he's been stealing. This annoys Woodman and he'll attack you.

I'll tell the media everything pressures him to tell you the information about Evelyn. He won't attack you if you choose this option.

It really doesn't matter what choices you make as you'll find out that Evelyn was sent to a Ripperdoc called Fingers on Jig-Jig Street. Woodman either tells you, or you can fight him, grab some loot and then find the information by reading some messages on his computer.
