Floyd The Sommelier is a Dead Rising scoop, which takes place in the Security Room. If Frank rescued Floyd Sanders from Ned's Knicknackery, Otis will call saying that Floyd wants some wine. Travel to the security room and give Floyd some wine.

There needs to at least three survivors in the yellow room with Floyd, otherwise the scoop will not start.[2] Once three or more survivors are in the room with Floyd, Otis will call Frank about this scoop.

Conversation with Floyd[]

Giving Floyd Wine
Dead rising floyd
Floyd: All the young folks seem so busy. Running hear and there. All a man my age can do is sit and eat. Take a look around. It's hard to read it on their faces, but everyone's on edge here. Their nerves are frazzled. That's why I asked you to bring some wine. A little alcohol should soothe all our nerves. So, did you bring it?
Give Floyd wine

Floyd: Thank you. It won't solve any of our long term problems, but it'll certainly help lighten the mood. I appreciate your taking the time to do this for us.

Don't give Floyd wine

Frank: Sorry, I don't have any.

Floyd: Hmph! Can't even do a simple favor for an old man in need eh?[1]


  • A "Sommelier" is a waiter in a restaurant who is in charge of wines and serving wines, a wine steward.[3]
