Part 3 - "Asking for a Favour"
When Carlo returns home after completing the last job he will walk inside to find his mother sitting on the couch weeping with a letter in her hand. Carlo being understandably concerned will sit down beside her and ask her what is the matter. His mother will hand him the letter and still crying will exclaim "they're going to take our home". Carlo will take the letter in his hand and read it aloud:
Due to you not paying your rent for the past three months, despite numerous requests for you to do so I regret to inform you that you must vacate the premises within the next ten days or we will be forced to take legal action.
Lead officer of the Liberty City housing department
Carlo will put his arm around his mother and tell her "don't you worry momma I'm gonna sort this out". Carlo will take the letter and walk into the kitchen where he will take out his cell phone and call the housing department. After a couple of seconds the phone will be answered by a clerk.
Clerk: "Good afternoon, Liberty city housing department - Sara speaking, how can I help you?"
Carlo: "Hi Sarah, I'd like to speak to Mr. Jeremiah Johnson please"
Clerk: "I'm sorry sir but Mr. Johnson is out of his office right now, would you like to leave a message"
Carlo: "No thank you" (hangs up)
Carlo will approach his mother once again and tell her that he's going to go take a walk, he will then leave the apartment saying to himself that he's "going to head over there and give this Mr. Johnson a piece of his mind". A blip will show up on your radar for an office building in southern Algonquin which be identified on screen as "Mr. Johnson's office". When you have reached the building you will be instructed to take the elevator up to the seventh floor. When you make it up there you will be told to approach the counter, behind which there will be several office clerks seated.
When you reach the counter Carlo will demand to see Mr. Johnson only to be once again told that he is out. At this point Carlo will become quite aggitated, just then another customer who had been waiting in line will stand up and say "hey, you gotta take a number buddy" Carlo will then reply "Take this!" and will punch the man square in the face. You will then be instructed to go find Mr. Johnson who will be in the back.
The door which leads in behind the scenes will be unlocked so it will simply be a matter of walking on through. Once on the other side of the counter Carlo will demand that Johnson reveal himself. Most of the staff will remain cowaring behind their desks but one african american gentleman will stand up rather heroically and proclaim "I'm Mr. Johnson sir. What seems to be the problem?" Carlo will be furious at the man's non chalant attitude and will storm over and grab him by his shirt before shoving the eviction notice in his face and asking "what the f*ck is this!?" Mr. Johnson still keeping suprisingly calm will say "it's an eviction notice sir". Carlo somehow resisting the urge to pummel the man's face into mush will say "I know it's an eviction notice you stupid piece of f*cking sh*t" and rolling it up into a ball will then tell him to "stick it up his f*cking ass" before bouncing it off his head. As if to be following some kind of protocol Johnson will tell him "look sir I know you're upset and I understand but there is really nothing we can do, we only issue these notices when our previous warnings have been ignored, the city cannot afford to have people living in our dwellings without paying rent". At this point Carlo will pick up a stapler from one of the desks and grabbing Johnson by the collar will open it up and press it up against his head saying "I don't care what you usually do in these situations you worthless prick.. I'm going to need a little more time". At this point Carlo will become aware of several security guards approaching him from behind.. sensing an imminent takedown he will take the stapler away from Johnson's head and turn it on the guards demanding that they "back the f*ck up or it's gonna turn nasty". The guards not wanting to get filled with staples will start to back off, Carlo will then turn the weapon back on Mr. Johnson. Johnson seeing no quick or peaceful end to the ordeal will then offer Carlo a way out. He will tell him that if he can come up with 80 grand within a week the apartment will be his. Carlo will think about this offer for a second and say "80 grand? I think I can do that" he will then release Mr. Johnson from his grasp and begin to move towards the door. As he does this he will be apprehended by one of the security guards who will swiftly be told by Carlo to get his f*cking hand's off him, Carlo will then exit the building peacefully. After leaving the building Carlo will call Frankie, the conversation will go as follows:
Frankie (sounding like he just woke up): "Hello"
Carlo: "Hey Frankie it's me Carlo"
Frankie: "Hey Carlo what's up?"
Carlo: "I got a favour to ask you"
Frankie: "A favour to ask me?.. Alright shoot man what is it?"
Carlo: "Ok here it goes.. um.. I wanted to know if you could lend me some money"
Frankie: "What kinda money?"
Carlo: "I was thinking like eighty grand"
Frankie: "Eighty f*cking grand!? Where hell the do you think I'm gonna find that kind of money"
Carlo: "Look Frankie I know it's a big ask but I wouldn't even have called if I didn't need the money bad. Come on.. I saw how much money you made on that gas station job alone and.."
Frankie: "f*ck's sake Carlo would you keep your f*cking mouth shut about that, you never know who could be listening in on this sh*t"
Carlo: "Sorry Frankie but I was just sayin that I know you got it.. I'll pay it back as soon as I can I promise"
Frankie: "Oh alright.. come by my place in about an hour and I'll have the money ready for you ok"
After one in-game hour an F icon will appear on your map to show that it's time to head over to Frankie's place. When you get there Carlo will knock on the door and after a few seconds Frankie will open the door a jar and peep out. "What the hell Frankie I thought you were expecting me" Carlo will say as he walks inside the apartment "Yeah I was but I just had to make sure it wasn't the f*cking feds" Frankie will reply. Carlo will then walk into the living area and Frankie will tell him to take a seat, he will then ask him if he wants anything to drink but Carlo will decline the offer wanting to get straight down to business. Frankie will sit down in a chair close to Carlo and call into somebody in the kitchen "hey Moe get out here you old jew bastard". After a couple of seconds a tall elderly man will emerge from the next room with a briefcase in his hand. Frankie will tell Carlo "this is Moe.. he handles all of the family's finances" the man will then place the briefcase on the coffee table facing Frankie and take a seat opposite Carlo. Carlo will stand up and offer the man a handshake saying "hey man, the names Carlo nice to meet you" however the man will just stare at him blankly. Frankie will laugh nervously excusing the man's ignorance by saying "he uh.. don't talk much. Maybe that's why my dad's kept him around all these years, eh" the man will hardly react though he will just stare at Frankie in a disapproving manner, Frankie will then turn to Carlo and say "He aint one for the jokes neither" Carlo will tell Frankie that he understands. At this point Frankie will open the case and turn it around to face Carlo, it will be full to the brim with stacks of bills. Carlo will ask "is it all there" to which Frankie will reply pointing towards Moe "this old shylock must've counted it at least ten times before you got here, I'm pretty sure it's all there". Carlo will then laugh and take the case telling Frankie that he "cannot thank him enough", Frankie will say "forget about it" and tell him that he may call on him for a favour some time in the future but until then it's business as usual. Carlo will wave goodbye to both Frankie and the ever pleasant Mr. Schwartz and exit the apartment.
After leaving the apartment Carlo will head back over to the building which contains the housing authority offices. When he arrives there he will attempt to enter the building but will be stopped by security guards who will say that they can't let him in. Carlo handing the guards the case full of money will say "it's ok gentlemen, just give this to Mr. Johnson" the guards, looking quite puzzled, will take the case from him and he will head on his way. After returning home, Carlo's mother will ask him where he's been, he will tell her that he's been down at the bank and that now she doesn't have to worry about any more eviction notices. His mother, assuming he has gotten a loan from the bank will be delighted and will give him a big hug. There will be a timelapse and Carlo will spawn outside his apartment, at which point this the final part of this chapter will end.
