Chapter 12 - Part 2
The phone in Carlo's apartment will ring and he will answer it to find the building's receptionist on the other end.
Receptionist: "Mr. Devino, there's a gentleman here to see you"
Carlo: "Hmm.. ok send him up"
Receptionist: "He's already on his way sir.. I asked him to wait but he wouldn't"
Carlo: "Ok thanks"
Receptionist: "Uhh.. I'm sorry sir"
Carlo will hang up the phone and grab his gun from a nearby table, anticipating the arrival of his unexpected visitor. After a couple of moments there will be a knock at the door and Carlo will cautiously open it to find Nicky Bottino standing on the other side, head bowed waiting for an answer.
Carlo: "Oh it's you"
Nicky: "What d'you mean?"
Carlo: "You got some f*cking balls showing your face here I'll give you that"
Nicky: "What the f*ck are you talking about?"
Carlo: "That little stunt you pulled on the job, hightailing it outta there and leaving me to get my ass shot to pieces"
Nicky: "Hold on a f*cking minute now I don't even know you and you expect me to put my life on the line because you don't know how to get a job done!?"
Carlo: "I know how to get a job done just fine.. but that.. that was a f*cking set up is what it was"
Nicky: "A set up!? You don't know what the f*ck you're talking about.. Philly wouldn't do that"
Carlo: "Oh no?"
Nicky: "No. If he had wanted you dead would he have sent me over here to give you more work?"
Carlo: "I don't know!"
Nicky: "You wanted in on this thing.. if you wanna back out now then fine, go f*ck yourself"
Carlo (pausing to think for a minute): "Well that depends.. what does he want me to do?"
Nicky: "He didn't say. He just told me to come over here and get you and meet him in Alazone's"
Carlo (pausing again): "Ok but I'm not doing any more f*cking drugs deals, I'll tell you that now"
The two men will head downstairs and you will be instructed to get into Nicky's Oracle which will be parked outside, at which point a marker will be set on your GPS for Alazone's in Broker. On the journey over there Carlo and Nicky will get to talking and Nicky will admit that when he heard the gunshots he thought that Carlo was dead and say that he's pretty impressed that he managed to get out of there alive.
When you get to Alazone's Nicky will tell Carlo to park in a loading bay. Carlo will ask him if he's sure since he's pretty sure that it's illegal but Nicky will tell him to relax, that they will only be away for a few minutes and that he parks there all the time. After exiting the car the two men will enter the store and make their way to the back where they will be greeted by Philly.
As the men approach he will walk towards Carlo with open arms and pat him on his shoulders like a mother who had just found a lost child in a crowded shopping mall "There he is.. and still in one piece". Carlo wanting to demonstrate his anger will push Philly away and tell him sternly "Yeah no thanks to you". Philly will try in vain to attempt to convince Carlo that he's misreading the situation saying "Come on.. I'll admit that was an oversight on my part and for that I'm sorry" Carlo not letting Philly work him over will fire back with "Them esses was pissed off just like you knew they'd be". Seeing that his manipulation tactics have failed Philly will then try to rationalise by telling him "I didn't know they were gonna start shooting.. I.. I.." Carlo will cut him short anticipating another weasley excuse "What's your f*ckin problem with me?" and Philly will finally come clean about his intentions knowing that Carlo will not be fooled "Listen I just had to make sure you weren't a cop ok"
Carlo (as angry as ever): "A f*cking cop? I was vouched for by the Messinas.. you think they're in the business of passing on UCs?"
Philly: "Actually that's what made me suspicious. You see I hear they got a rat in their camp"
Carlo: "And you had to make sure it wasn't me huh?"
Philly: "Which is why I sent you on that job. You see it's in my interests to be familiar with the law and I know that cops in this state can't carry out drug deals without making an arrest.. and those six bodies I read about in the paper.. well they just about sealed your faith as pork free. Plus it showed me that you aint afraid to get your hands dirty.. I could use a guy like you"
Carlo: "So you called me over here to give me some wet work is that it"
Philly: "Relax I don't want you to kill nobody.. I just need you to boost me a van that's all"
Carlo: "Why do you need me to do it? Aint you got your own guys who can do it for you"
Philly: "Well you're not gonna be riding alone. This is a three man job, I got two of my guys going along with you for moral support. It's gonna be you, Nicky and Dino.. the three musketeers"
Carlo: "Oh yeah? And who's Dino?"
Just as he asks this a young man about Carlo's age will step out from the shadows of an unlit part of warehouse and say "I am"
Philly: "Carlo this is Dino Ziferelli"
Dino: "Hey how you doin'"
Carlo: "Listen, it's great that you have your little crew together but what makes you think I'm gonna say yes?"
Philly: "Oh you're gonna say yes and when you find out what we're planning you're gonna be glad you did"
Carlo looks at Nicky and then towards Dino who both give him a reassuring nod of confidence
Carlo: "Ok.. so where can we find this van?"
It's parked in a lock up in Bohan that belongs to some Russians
Carlo (shaking his head): "I shoulda known this wasn't gonna be easy"
Philly: "It's gonna be a piece of cake I promise you. You're just gonna slip in and take the van before those Rusky f*cks even realise what's going on"
Carlo: "If it's that straightforward why do you need three of us?"
Philly (looking at Nicky): "In case somebody decides to run"
Nicky: "Haw Haw very funny Phil"
Philly: "Do you see me laughing?"
Nicky will look towards the floor, showing his remorse
At this point the store clerk Alberto will enter the warehouse from the front of the store. "Hey Nicky is that your car parked out front"
Nicky: "Yeah why?"
Alberto: "Cause there's a traffic cop out there writing you a ticket"
Nicky: "Motherf*cker! Aint they got nothin better to do"
Philly: "I think you better go and handle that Nicky these two can ride in tandem on this one"
Dino will step forward and say "Yeah Phil, we got this" and then pat Carlo on his left shoulder before gesturing him to leave
Philly: "Bring it back here when you're done"
Dino (walking away with Carlo): "Sure thing skip"
Carlo and Dino will walk outside and Carlo will spot a Freeway parked up alongside the kerb and approach it assuming it to be Dino's ride.
Carlo: "When Philly said we were going to be riding in tandem he wasn't kidding was he"
Dino: "Do I look like a smelly biker to you? My car's around the corner.. where Nick shoulda parked"
The two men will then walk around the corner and get into Dino's Vincent at which point a waypoint will be set on your map for a lock up in Bohan Industrial. On the journey over there Carlo will question Dino about what exactly Philly is putting together at first Dino will tell him he's not allowed to say but after a bit of pushing he will say that he's planning to rob millions of dollars worth of cargo from Francis International Airport and the van that they're going to steal has been specially fitted with armour plating which will come in handy should the heist go wrong and they need to escape from the Feds.
After a short drive the men will arrive at their destination and get out of the car. As they approach the lockup they will notice two guards outside armed with submachine guns. Carlo will suggest that they take a stealthy approach and sneak up on the guards however Dino will point out that the door to the lockup is closed and whoever's inside isn't gonna open up for anybody but the guards so the best course of action would be to flush them out by shooting the guards. As soon as the guards have been dealt with the door will open and the van will speed out of the lockup like a hound out of the gates and begin hightailing it out of there prompting you to go after it but not before you deal with some more guards who will emerge from the lock up. There will be a PCJ 600 conveniently parked up outside but you can opt to take the more time consuming option of running back to Dino's car. Taking the bike however will yield you some extra dialogue in where Dino will say to Carlo "looks like you got your wish afterall" and Carlo will reply "far from it.. every time I ride one of these things something bad happens".
Whichever option you choose the van will no doubt have gained a good bit of distance on you. When you draw relatively close to the van Dino will foolishly try to shoot it to a halt prompting Carlo to point out his idiocy. Several cars full of Russians will now begin to pursue you. Dino will task himself with taking them out while you to try to get in front of the van so he can shoot out the windscreen and cause it to stop for the taking. This will be no easy task however since the van will weave dangerously along the freeway and then through traffic meaning that you will need to drive cautiously in order to avoid being thrown from the bike.
If you stay in pursuit of the van for long enough without managing to get in front of it (without letting it get away) there will be a scripted event whereby Carlo (as part of a cutscene) will pull up alongside the van and spotting a stunt jump will veer off towards it, driving up the ramp at speed allowing the trajectory of the jump to get beyond the van. As you are in the air Dino will let off a flurry of bullets which will shatter the windscreen and end the life of the driver inside. Your vehicle will then land on the road and come to a screeching halt and you will be instructed to steal it.
Either way once you have commandeered the van you will be instructed to drive it to Native American Engines in Broker so that a friend of Dino's can fix up the windscreen. When you reach the garage Dino will tell Carlo that he will take it from there and that somebody will give him a call when the heist is about to go down.
