Otis's call Dead rising transiever  I spotted an old man. He's in the ANTIQUE SHOP in ENTRANCE PLAZA. It's weird... He seems awfully calm considering the circumstances.[1]
Dead Rising Scoop

Antique Lover is a scoop in Dead Rising. Frank receives a call from Otis about an old man in Ned's Knicknackery. Floyd Sanders is a real antique lover who would rather die amongst the antiquities than try to survive among the zombies. It takes some serious coaxing, but the old man finally agrees to join Frank. However, this means Frank is going to have to carry Floyd.[2]

Conversation with Floyd[]

Conversation with Floyd
Dead rising floyd
Floyd: You look like you're still human. If you're still human then surely you see the beauty in this work...

Frank: Sorry to get in the way of your hobby there, pal, but this is no time to go antiquing.

Floyd: It's hopeless anyway. I may as well spend my last moments enjoying this. If I'm going to die, I'd just as soon do it surrounded by great works of art. Don't you see? I figure the world owes me this much. The chance to choose the way I die.

Frank: I know a guy who's coming here in a helicopter on Friday. Come with us...

Floyd: Can you really guarantee that leaving this town would be better than staying? I'm so damn old. Even if I got out, I don't have much time left. Staying alive doesn't have much appeal to me anymore. Just let me die surrounded by art.

Frank: Listen old man, can you honestly tell me you want to die here? You wouldn't regret it?

Floyd: ...

Frank: You appreciate art too much to mistake this junk for sale in a mall for the real deal don't you? You can't really consider this crap to be art. I've made better art than this in the can.

Floyd: ...

Frank: C'mon pal. If we get outta here you can see a museum again. Well?

Floyd: ...

Frank: Well?

Floyd: You might be right, son. Maybe I do want to leave after all. Whaddya say whippersnapper. You mind helpin' an old man like me out?[3]
