In the "Come Fly With Me" quest chain, I just finished clearing the basement of nightkin and sent Harland away. After going back upstairs, I can't open the research labs door to talk to the ghoul Jason again because I don't have the key. Using the intercom only allows me to be told "stop messing around with the intercom".

(Also, the lock is not pick-able.)

You shouldn't need a key... this sounds like something has bugged on you tbqh. – LessPop_MoreFizz Nov 26 '10 at 21:39
Well that stinks. Thanks. – user5077 Nov 27 '10 at 0:27

Try leaving the area and coming back after 3 game days. According to the comments, the 3-day trick does not work here. You've definitely hit a glitch, one which is now accounted for on the Wiki.

Thus, you're probably looking at reloading a saved game from before starting the quest, if you have one available. Sorry.

The bug has sinced been added to the wiki. The 3 game day fix unfortunately doesn't work. – James McMahon Jun 17 '15 at 3:43

When you stand in front of the door to the research lab is there an Intercomm on the wall to your right? If you activate that intercomm the Ghoul may open the door for you.

The ghoul only opens the door on your initial visit. – Dave DuPlantis May 28 '11 at 0:06

Here's what you do: Go in FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS, Go to the door, STOP, Look to your you will find ANOTHER Intercom Activate and vióla!
