[[Cash in Kazuki's Chips]] }} '''Bringing the House Down''' is a mission in [[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories]] given to [[Protagonist|protagonist]] [[Toni Cipriani]] by explosives expert [[8-Ball]] from his explosives shop in [[Pike Creek]], [[Shoreside Vale]], [[Liberty City in GTA III Era|Liberty City]]. ==Mission== Toni returns to 8-Ball who has all the explosives ready. [[Donald Love]] phones 8-Ball and informs Toni that the weakest points under [[Fort Staunton]] is the new [[Porter Tunnel]] development and the old subway tunnels. Toni leaves, carefully driving the [[Rumpo|van]] full of explosives to Fort Staunton. On the way, he is attacked by [[Forelli Family]] mobsters but manages to escape. He then enters the Porter Tunnel and drives to various parts of the Tunnel and subway tunnels, planting the explosives. Toni then leaves the tunnels, killing any construction workers who are witnesses. He escapes in a vehicle, just as the explosives detonate, destroying [[Fort Staunton]]. ==Script== '''8-Ball''': Look man, this truck is loaded. Know what I'm saying? Drive cool. (''8-Ball's cell phone rings'') '''8-Ball''': Yeah? It's all good. Sure. I'll put him on. (''8-Ball hands the phone to Toni'') '''Donald Love''': Toni, we're one little job away from being fabulously rich. We've scoured plans of Fort Staunton. Its weakest points are along the old subway that runs underneath the area. '''Toni Cipriani''': Great Don! All I gotta do is dodge a hundred wacko Italians. '''Donald Love''': Just head along the Porter Tunnel and you'll find your way in just fine. (''Toni begins to drive toward the Porter Tunnel entrance and is attacked by the Forellis'') '''Toni Cipriani''': The Forellis? What are they doing here? (''Toni manages to enter Porter Tunnel'') '''Worker #1''': Get the hell out of here! (''Toni plants some of the explosives and enters the old subway tunnels, where a second worker spots Toni'') '''Worker #2''': Hey! You're not supposed to be down here! ==Reward== The reward for completing the mission is [[Money|$]]5,000 and the [[Love on the Run]] mission is unlocked. ==Trivia== *Not placing the first explosive does not start the time limit, so the player has the oppurtunity to explore the abandoned subway. *The name of this mission is a reference to the film [[wp:Bringing Down The House]] starring Queen Latifah. ==Gallery== File:BringingtheHouseDown-GTALCS2.jpg|[[Donald Love]] telling [[Toni Cipriani]] that the weakest points of [[Fort Staunton]] are the old subway tunnels.

A Zhouboat in GTA Chinatown Wars, from "Torpedo Run".

The Zhouboat is a boat in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars.


The Zhouboat is designed as a large boat seemingly outfitted with equipment in the rear. The outfitting is implied during "Torpedo Run" to be used to drop floating mines in order to damage the pursuing player's boat. The name is suggestively based on Zhou Ming's name, implying the boat is owned by the Ming Family.

Performance of the boat is actually similar to that of the Destroyer, being relatively fast in nautical speed, although its still requires a large turning radius as large boats do. The boat's endurance is also substantially good, being able to survive up to five explosions before catching fire.


The Zhouboat can only be found twice during the aforementioned "Torpedo Run" mission, the first during which the player must destroy the boat in a chase on the Humboldt River using a Destroyer. Its second appearance occurs when the player reaches a dock on the southern half of Colony Island to eliminate remaining targets; the second Zhouboat, which can be commandeered by the player, is docked there.
