Boomshine Saigon is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City given to protagonist Tommy Vercetti by Phil Cassidy from his firearms business in Little Haiti, Vice City.

Mission

Tommy Vercetti goes to Phil's Place and finds a drunken Phil Cassidy, who shows him his boomshine bombs, with Vercetti saying that he feels 'woozy', as he's getting slightly drunk from the potent fumes. Phil presses the detonator as Tommy ducks down on reflex, but the bomb fails to explode. Realizing it must be the remote's batteries, Phil staggers over where he has fresh ones... sitting on the bench beside the bomb. Having just changed the batteries, Phil throws up his left hand with the detonator in celebration, with the bomb just off to his right. The motion (of course) causes him to accidently pull the trigger, and the explosion blows off Phil's right arm. Phil knows he's injured, but only falls to his knees and onto his face laughing; he's so drunk that he apparently can't feel any pain.

A now woozy Vercetti then gets Phil into his Patriot and drives him to the West Haven Community Healthcare Centre. Phil, however, states that the hospital is full of police and Viet Cong, and asks to be driven to an ex-army surgeon in Little Havana, as he owes Phil a favor.

Script

Tommy Vercetti: Hey Phil, how's it goin?

(Tommy is hit by boomshine fumes which he tries to fan away.)

Phil Cassidy: Heeyyyy, Tommy. Howyadoin'? Ish been too long...

Tommy Vercetti: I swear you should lay off that boomshine, man - smells like paint stripper. Making my eyes burn...

(Phil guides Tommy, now staggering a bit himself from the fumes, to a large crate Phil is using for cover.)

Phil Cassidy: Shshs shhh youshelf Tommy, and come over here because there's someshin' I wanna show you.. someshin.

Tommy Vercetti: Woof! God! Should I be able to smell that from way over here? I'm feeling woozy.

Phil Cassidy: Don'tchaworry about the shmell Tommy, you jush wash thish.

(Phil clicks on the detonator as Tommy ducks, but nothing happens, so he walks over to the bomb for batteries.)

Phil Cassidy: Shittycheapbatteriesh or shumin'. There'sh shum more on the bench. TA-DAAA!

(Having changed the batteries, he celebrates but accidently clicks the detonator. The bomb explodes and blows off Phil's right arm.)

Phil Cassidy: Aww Damn!

(Phill falls to his knees and keels over, still laughing; he's so drunk that he can't feel the pain.)

(Tommy Vercetti drives off in Phil's truck.)

Phil Cassidy: Watch out! Charlie in the tree line!

(Tommy Vercetti continues to drive to the West Haven Community Healthcare Centre.)

Phil Cassidy: Is it me or are the roads made of jelly?

(Tommy Vercetti continues to drive to the West Haven Community Healthcare Centre.)

Phil Cassidy: Broken Spoon to Mother Hen, you copy?

(Tommy Vercetti continues to drive to the West Haven Community Healthcare Centre.)

Phil Cassidy: Spooney Wooney Woo Woo Woooo!

(Tommy Vercetti continues to drive to the West Haven Community Healthcare Centre.)

Phil Cassidy: He's come for me boy!

(If the police see Tommy driving while drunk)

Police: 10-4, we've got a drunk driver.

(Tommy Vercetti arrives at the West Haven Community Healthcare Centre.)

Phil Cassidy: Not the hospital, man! Too many cops and Viet Cong! There's an ex-army surgeon owes me a few favors and a lawnmower. He's got a place down Little Havana - ooo look, a giant fish.

(Tommy Vercetti drives towards the ex-army surgeon in Little Havana.)

Phil Cassidy: Black feathered wings beating all around...

(Tommy Vercetti drives towards the ex-army surgeon in Little Havana.)

Phil Cassidy: It's beautiful, man... it's beautiful... but so cold...

Reward

The three barrels of Boomshine that spawn in the corner of Tommy's Suite in the Ocean View Hotel.

The rewards for completing the mission are $4,000, the ability to purchase weapons from Phil's Place, and three barrels of boomshine in the Ocean View Hotel.

Trivia

  • Even after Phil accidentally blows up the dynamite, the pack can still be seen on the crate. Furthermore, the crate should have been completely obliterated by the explosion.
  • This is the only mission in the GTA III Era in which the player can be wanted for drunk driving.
  • The mission scene has the song "Burnin' For You" by Blue Oyster Cult. This is the only time this song appears in this game.
  • During the cutscene, Phil blows off his right arm. However, it shows him with it intact and his left arm missing when he is dropped off at the doctor.
  • The reason the screen is blurry in this mission is because Tommy Vercetti was drunk on boomshine by smelling it.
  • In Grand Theft Auto III, Phil claims that his arm was blown off in Vietnam, but the events of this mission contradicts Phil's statement in GTA III. Although this may have been said because Phil believes he was in Vietnam during the events of this mission.
