Mike screwed up the wiring to blow up Tarbrush Café and the police are now all over the place. Lance yells at him for this and sees no way of fixing this problem. Lance wants to bail out but Tommy doesn't like this idea. He thinks about pretending to be a cop to get past the heavy police presence to detonate the bomb themselves. Over at Vice Point, Tommy and Lance lure two cops into a garage and beat them up to grab their uniforms. They suit up and head to the Tarbrush Cafe in North Point Mall. Tommy detonates the bomb and the place blows up. This explosion causes Tommy to be wanted by the FBI but Tommy manages to evade them and heads back to his mansion with Lance.
Lance Vance: You moron! What were you thinking?! Do you realize what this means?! We could all be sunk!
Mike: The timer must have got screwed. That place was wired to go up like a firework factory. Then somebody tipped off the cops...
Tommy Vercetti: What's the problem, fellas?
Lance Vance: Mike was supposed to torch some place in the mall, but he screwed the fuses and now the cops are crawling all over it. We gotta get our stuff and get out of here!
Tommy Vercetti: Relax, both of you, let me think for a second! Tommy Vercetti just doesn't cut and run. The cops are gonna be going over that building with a fine toothed comb, right? But that takes time. We gotta go in and torch that place ourselves.
Mike: Yeah, but...
Lance Vance: No one but a cop could get within a mile of that place!
Tommy Vercetti: So we go as cops. We gotta get uniforms - and we're gonna need a squad car. All thanks to you Mike.
Mike: I'm sorry.
Lance Vance: I got it. What we got to do is lure the cops in with the finger, put them in a lock-up and jump 'em.
Tommy Vercetti: Good plan. Let's go!
Post mission phone call
Lance Vance: Tommy, it's me, Lance. Keep your mouth shut there Tommy, 'cause I ain't got time to talk. I ain't interested in what you got to say. Why should I be? You don't care about me, do you? You gotta look after me a bit better. Give me a fair slice, you know... Tommy ... oh, look, man, I'm sorry. It's just that... People patronize me all my life, treat me like a little kid. My brother would do that. Please, man, don't do that. I gotta go.
The reward for completing this mission is $10,000. The protection missions are now completed and the Vercetti Estate generates up to $5,000 a day. The Cop Outfit is always available from the Washington Beach police headquarters from this point onwards.
- The fact that Lance carries a Stubby Shotgun is a reference to Miami Vice where Philip Michael Thomas, who provides the voice for Lance, occasionally carries the same model shotgun.
- No matter what clothes you put in when you trigger that mission, Tommy is instead wearing the Street Outfit.
- Besides Tommy says you need a squad car you can take a civilian car.
- It is strange that Mike leaves Vercetti Estate with Tommy and Lance at the end of the opening cutscene but Mike is seen nowhere else within the mission.
