|Spoiler Warning: Plot and/or ending details are in the text which follows.|
The mission begins with Claude dropping by Joey's garage looking for more work from Joey Leone. Joey Leone has just finished fixing Toni Cipriani's car. Joey introduces Claude to Toni, and tells Claude to drive him back to his home. Before he leaves, Joey tells Claude to drop by later for some more work.
The player gets control of Claude outside of Joey's garage, but there has been a change of plans. Toni asks Claude to go to Chinatown, to collect unpaid protection money. Claude drives Toni to the laundrette, and Toni enters the store. Toni, after confronting two Triad gang members, runs outside and enters his vehicle. Claude drives off and back to Momma's Ristorante in St Marks, with no chase given by Triad gang members. Once Claude gets Toni to his mothers restaurant the mission is complete.

Toni Cipriani: Yeah, I'm Toni Cipriani.
Joey Leone: Take him to Momma's restaurant at St Marks, alright. Now listen to me, I'm planning a job that needs a good driver so drop by sometime later OK?
