Doing a replay of the story for GTA V, I've reached the mission "Complications", where Franklin and Michael first properly meet. Now it's got me thinking, why the hell was Michael just laying the back of Jimmy's new car? It just seems pretty odd that Michael, of all people, would simply be doing that.

I may be over thinking such a trivial matter, yet it's just something that bugs the hell out of me.

He knew something was fishy about Jimmy's new car.

Haha I was going to make a thread about this a couple of weeks ago. Yeah I don't know what he was doing. Maybe he need some private time and  masturbated in the back seat. :ph34r:

The dialogue seems to suggest he saw Franklin sneak around the house and had a pretty good guess of what he came for so he decided to wait for him in the car.

That's what I thought - intentionally hiding, to catch Franklin n the act of repo-ing the car.

Of course he knew, this master of stealth clearly saw or heard Franklin. There's a reason Micheal was a successful bank robber.

It's pretty obvious. He's a clued up guy, he saw or heard Franklin climbing into the building, realised he was there to take Jimmy's stupid ugly car back, and got in. Realising that this was more than just the average Repo Man, he offered him an opportunity. 

 

It's a ham fisted way of introducing Michael, IMO, but there we go. That's his intro, and it's kind of balls.

Well, he knew about the ridiculous monthly payment, which he probably had to shell out, so he spent his days hiding in the back seat waiting for a repo man to come along!

 

Yeah, it is pretty funny. Maybe we're supposed to think he was upstairs and saw Franklin through a window or something. I don't know how else they could explain that he was in the vehicle first. Still, even that doesn't cut it - "Oh no, somebody's creeping around my lawn and just knocked out the gardener! I bet he's here for the vehicle, because on tv, repo men always knock out unsuspecting gardeners first."

Michael had a feeling that the car would be repossessed knowing that Jimmy didn't have any source of income in order to make the repayments.

Any one tried checking the back of the car BEFORE climbing in the window, to see if he's already there?

I, myself, actually assumed he was trying to get a break from his family and was hiding but I think you guys are right. He cued in on Franklin walking around his house and set up in the back of the car.

You can't, because the garage is locked.

The folks got some problems with this one because for some kind of reason Micheal wouldn't listen to the programmers. He would just shoot Franklin down but then some dude from the good old east said something to Micheal and then Micheal seem to start listening again. They discovered that something was wrong with the code because Micheal seem to disagree with a lot of things. Oh and not to mention the drama in 86, not going to mention the drama of it. Also some times Micheal checks his phone while in the fast food restaurant he did that on his own. So another dude from the good old north came and saw the drama that he caused so he said to the code something that wasn't so nice. And suddenly Micheal started to listen again, don't know how they did it.

 

Oh but to answer your question, Micheal probably saw him.

It always seemed like Michael had figured out what the hell was going on, and waited.

The scene was supposed to show how experienced Michael is, and how much of a rookie Franklin is at the time.

I had thought that maybe he had slept in the car, since his marriage with Amanda was falling through. I thought that it was at a point where he wasn't sleeping in bed with her any more and had decided to sleep in the car. Now that I think about it, that explanation doesn't make much sense :lol: I'm guessing the explanation of him seeing Franklin was correct.

That still doesn't explain why someone would hide in a car. I'm not sure if you are meaning that Michael was scared but he wasn't the kind of guy whom would hide in a car. He killed people and experienced far worse consequences. Somehow, he probably saw it coming and knew the car was going to be stolen. The dialogue doesn't match why Michael would of seen it coming - "Unlikely, seeing as my son just bought the car" - Ask Rockstar on that one.  :^:

Micheal sees you when you (Franklin) are sneaking around the house, knocking out his gardner and sh*t.  If you look while sneaking around the back, I bet he is at one of the 2nd story windows.

If this had been GTA IV, I would have said that Michael was planning to suicide by suffocation, but since this game is more light-hearted and goofy, I'd say that he was feeling a bit depressed and found somewhere "peaceful" to take a nap: Jimmy's new car.

Obviously he saw Franklin, realised that Jimmy was given credit for an expensive car way too easily and put two and two together to realise that he was there for the car and the whole thing was a pre-planned con. Michael's a clever man.

I wondered about it too, but when you sneak into the house what are the first things you hear? Ji!my and Tracy arguing, and Amanda with her tennis coach.

I think its because he hates his home life, he's sick of his family and knows the only way he can take a nap I to hide out in the back of Jimmy's new car.
