- "Chuck, there's a woman lying on the floor of the Venus Touch Spa in the Palisades. She looks like she is barely alive. You better hurry!"
- —Stacey Forsythe
Wilted Flower is a mission in Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record taking place in The Venus Touch tanning salon in the Palisades Mall. A woman is badly dehydrated after being left in a tanning bed.
Chuck Greene hears strange noises coming from a tanning bed while investigating the salon, and opens it up to find a bikini-clad survivor named Linette Watkins, who has been trapped inside since the outbreak started since the staff fled and is now badly sunburned from the tanning lamps. Linette requests a drink before agreeing to be taken back to the saferoom. Because her sunburn makes it painful for her to move, Chuck is forced to carry her. On the way back to the Safe House, Linette will show a secret passage in the Brand New U that connects the Palisades Mall with Royal Flush Plaza, which remains usable for Chuck at any time in the current playthrough.
The secret passage does not remain open when a new playthrough is activated and must always be reopened with this mission.

Frank, there's a woman lying on the floor of the Venus Touch Spa in the Palisades. It looks like she's barely alive.
Lady? I can help you.
Please, please help me. I was stuck in that tanning bed. The staff ran away or something. I'm so parched. I can barely move.
I'll say. You're baked. Literally.
It gets worse... I was lying on my front for way too long. This can't be good for my tan lines. I'm so thirsty. What's going on out here?
You didn't know about the zombie outbreak? Listen, I can take you somewhere safe.
.Zombie outbreak?! I just thought the service here was really bad. But I can hardly move. I need something to drink.
I'm still very weak
Oh, thank you so much! I was feeling like a raisin there for a moment.
Now that you're feeling better, let's get you out of here. I know how to get to the Safe House.
Thank you so much. But listen - since you are helping me, I can help you too. I know about the Safe House and I know a shortcut to the south side of Fortune.
Oh, I'm so thirsty. I can barely move, much less fight off any zombies. I need something to drink.
Okay, here we are. The shortcut is through the changing room in the back and it will take us to Royal Flush Plaza. The Safe House is right next door.
I work at Brand New U on the second floor. Take me there, and I'll show you the shortcut.
