Portrait of a Killer/Script
Contact: Come in, Niko.
Contact: So... you fought in the war...
Niko: You know a lot.
Contact: Yes. You're looking for some people.
Niko: We're all looking for that special someone.
Contact: But most of us don't want to kill them when we find them.
Niko: Most murderers are committed by people you know. Most wives are killed by their husbands.
Contact: Yes. And my wife had better stop sleeping with that tennis coach, or... I'm joking.
Niko: I am sure your wife doesn't need to sleep around. Oh, I'm joking... I'm sure she does.
Contact: Funny. I'm divorced. My wife can sleep with whoever she wants.
Contact: I'm not divorced. I was never married. No details. I need you to go find someone for me. I'll be getting a picture through shortly. This is important.
Niko:So why use me?
Contact: We always use people like you. Karen - Michelle... she was the same. Someone with something to lose, but not much to live for.
Niko: What's in it for me?
Contact: Two things, One, you don't get a hundred murders pinned on you. Two... maybe I will help you. And maybe I won't. Now get access to a police computer and wait for my message. Go!
(Niko gets a text message with a picture)
This is your target. Find him and take him out.
(Niko finds his hideout and phones the U.L. Paper Contact)
Niko: I've found his place, there are a bunch of guys hanging around.
Contact: He must be in there, Niko. Dispose of them all. We're doing a favor for our comrades in the East.
Niko: You better start doing me some favors soon.
(Niko spots Dimayev)
Dimayev: At least I am not being sent back to the homeland. I do not wish to think what they would do to me.
Dimayev: This democracy you people speak of is all illusion!
Dimayev: This country is not free, your constitution is all lies!
Dimayev: The government is all powerful, there is no beating you!
Dimayev: Be staying away from me!
Dimayev: I should never have thought I could beat you people.
Post mission phone call
Contact: Did you serve your purpose?
Contact: Then you are that much closer to finding the man you are after. That strange feeling deep inside - that's the feeling of satisfaction after you did something good. Congratulations. Goodbye.
