Fallout 3 Easter Egg - Movie Reference - Them!

The sidequest Those! is a reference to the cult b-movie from the 50's called Them!, which was about giant ant created after atomic bomb testing. This fits in with the Fallout theme, of a 50's styled post-war wasteland. The quest itself is about fire breathing ants accidently created by a scientist.

You've got things a little backwards Actually the quest is called "Those!" (I'm literally playing that quest right now, the game is paused so I can make this comment) It is a reference to the 1954 monster movie "Them!" which had giant mutated ants. (great flick by the way!!!) The Misfits song "Them!" is a tribute to the same 1954 movie.

Actually I think its named after the 1954 film "Them!" which is about giant ants killing everyone in sight.

Where as your egg is "technically" true, The Misfits song was based on the 1954 movie "Them!" which is about giant Irradiated ants. Therefore, I would postulate that the egg is referencing the film, and not the song. Also, the Quest line is called "Those!" not "Them!"

Them! refers to the 1954 Science fiction film of the same name - a film about ants that had mutated to giant size after atomic bomb tests in 1945. The Misfits song probably also refers to this film.
