When traveling around the Quincy area in the game a fridge can be found with a ghoul child inside who has been trapped since the bombs fell. This could be a reference to the scene from Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which has a scene where Jones survives a atom bomb by hiding in a lead lined fridge. This isn't the first time the Fallout series has poked fun at this idea. In Fallout New Vegas (2010) a fedora wearing skeleton can be found inside a fridge without a door if the player chooses the Wacky Wasteland trait.
