Note: Now is an excellent time to have a chat with Three Dog about your reward for his quest. Fast Travel to the GNR Building Plaza before anything. Talk to Three Dog and tell him you found your dad. He'll throw in an addition reward. Fast Travel to the Washington Monument, go inside and ride the bronze elevator up. Fix the Relay and head back to Three Dog. Tell him you felt it kinda was a waste of time and he'll hand you the [THREE DOG'S CACHE KEY].
The Hamilton's Hideaway marker is placed on your worldmap. Fast Travel to Vault 101 (perhaps fetch Dogmeat, too?) and head from there. Go through the iron door in the walls and search the place. There are a few Raiders and Radscorpions here. Get the loot from the Northeastern part of the area, then get out of there. Also see [EXP5.1].
This is the cache inside Hamilton's Hideway that Three Dog was talking about. It's not too shabby.
Talk to dad to find out what's been going on, and start the next quest. Leave the Vault and Garage, then fast travel to Rivet City. Your dad will make it to the Science Lab on his own, as we're about to see when you enter the Science Lab. After the conversation, exit Rivet City (unless you have business to attend to) and fast travel to Jefferson Memorial. This area should be cleared from not too long ago, so make your way to the Rotunda and meet up with dad.
A mixture of looking like a young Jon Voigt and George Clooney, and with the voice of Liam Neeson, your dad is a true charismatic leader, and a dad to be proud of.
Head inside the hallway to place the fuses.
Turn this valve and your life will forever change. No, it's not a magic valve, but just wait and see..
Note: The Laser Rifles are worth several hundred bottle caps. Try and do your best to collect as many of them as possible to sell later on. You may also want to collect a Power Armor (or several and repair them with each other), because you'll soon learn how to equip it.
The Enclave have some of the most powerful troops in the wasteland.
Make your way to the Rotunda and kill another Enclave Soldier on your way. Watch the dialog and follow Doctor Li at once until you find a manhole. Talk to everyone here and make sure they follow you. Head northeast and open the door in the next walkway. Follow the tunnel and you'll get to an intersection.
You find yourself wondering who the heck this dickhead is, and why G.W. Bush is his voiceover.
You don't have to go in this room, and it would be better not to due to the 4 Enclave Soldiers shooting maniacally on you. But.. On a desk at the right part of this large room you can find the [CHINESE ARMY: SPEC OPS. TRAINING MANUAL]. Check out the [FIRST AID BOX] nearby the terminal where Doctor Li is doing her best trying to open the doors.
Continue down the tunnel by heading west and take care of the Ghouls here. The room to the west has a Workbench, but it's probably not going to be of much use right now. A well hidden [BOTTLECAP MINE] can be found under the workbench. In the tunnel ahead, look for a [JET] on a table, and continue until you reach an area with a radio and some skeletons. Check behind the radio to find a well hidden [PSYCHO].
At some point, if he's still alive, Garza (one of the scientists) needs medicine before he can continue any further. You have many options to deal with this, although there is only one that leads to good Karma.
1. [Good Karma] Hand over 5 Stimpaks to heal Garza up.
2. --- Speech Challenge Doctor Li to give him 3 Buffout Medicine.
3. [Bad Karma] Speech Challenge Doctor Li that Garza is slowing everyone down.
4. [Bad Karma] Speech Challenge Garza himself that he should stay behind.
5. [Bad Karma] Kill Garza.
6. [Bad Karma] Continue your search through the tunnels, and when you come back, Garza will already be dead.
Whatever you choose, continue through the tunnels afterwards.
Make your way through the straightforward tunnels and doors until your reach a larger area. You'll have to make your way to the west, but when you reach the top of the stairs, two more Enclave Soldiers will ambush you from a platform on the east. Have the rest wait in the hall before you enter this room, then kill them (use the pillars for cover) and proceed. Check the [FOOTLOCKER] and the [EYEBOT HELMET], go upstairs, kill two Ghouls and search the Enclave Soldier body before you proceed.
Proceed with caution in the chamber with the higher catwalks and expect to be attacked by two Enclave Troops.
If you have a 75 Lockpick skill you can pick the door at the NE of the tunnel and find a bunch of ghouls and goodies. If you don't have 75 Lockpick Skill, don't worry, we'll get to this soon. Actually, even if you do have the skill it's better to wait..
Move through the double doors west and don't mistake the Brotherhood Soldier for an enemy; He's here to help you, so quickly run past him with the scientists and have him scorch the ghouls that rush from where you came from. He's helped by the turret, so the ghouls quickly die. Loot the ghouls and check the shelves for [RADAWAY], [5.56MM ROUNDS x24], two [.32 CALIBER ROUNDS x5], a [.32 PISTOL] three [AMMO BOXES] and a [FIRST AID BOX].
Although his name is never explicitly mentioned, this Initiate may also be referred to as Rambo. He has a few brothers in the hood as well.
Head back and continue through the tunnels. Near the exit, snatch a [JET] and [MED-X] from the table near the chair. Finally, head outside and proceed to the building. Let Docter Li handle the talking, and the Brotherhood will let you inside. Follow Docter Li and the quest will be completed.
