Niko Roman, good to speak to you. I needed to talk to a friend.
Roman Why, what's wrong?
Niko I think it's my conscience. I don't know.
Roman Your conscience? Have you killed too many people, Niko?
Niko Perhaps. That man who I worked for, Ray Boccino. I was asked to kill
him and I did. He was a cockroach - a pest. But I don't know how long I
can keep on dealing in death.
Roman It must be difficult, Niko. Maybe there is another path to take. A less
violent one. I'll speak to you soon, okay?
Ray wasn't as bad as he was portrayed by many. I liked his character. He always gets called a rat, but he wasn't a rat...he had his ambitions to rise up and he may be an ass kisser to Pegorino, but he has been straight with Niko. He had also very good missions and even though Niko says his payment is sh*t, well, Ray actually pays you quite a lot and he finds Bernie for you. he is also concerned about how this Bernie-thing went down. Sometimes I think R* wasn't too sure about Ray's fate...sometimes I think there could have been a choice in pest control, between him and Phil, but R* might didn't hve anything bad on Phil. Maybe they wanted Phil to be screwing angie Pegorino, hell, who knows.
Actually, there originally was going to be a choice in Pest Control; Ray or Phil. But since Ray became the secondary antagonist of The Lost And Damned, they ended up making Ray the one to be killed.
