(Carl delivers his bag at the Francis International Airport, Liberty City)
Carl Johnson: After five years on the East Coast, it was time to go home.
(Carl arriving at Los Santos International Airport, and his phone rings)
Carl (phone): 'Sup?
Sean "Sweet" Johnson (phone): Carl, it's Sweet.
Carl: Wassup, Sweet, what you want?
Sweet: It's Moms... She's dead, bro.
(Carl takes a cab, which is being pulled over by a police car)
Officer Frank Tenpenny: Passenger, show us your hands.
(Carl exits the cab and slowly walks backwards towards the police car.')
Tenpenny: Stop. Get down on your knees. Now down on your stomach.
(Carl does what he is told by Tenpenny)
Tenpenny: There you go. I'll take that, Hernandez.
(Officer Hernandez gives Carl's money to Tenpenny)
Carl: Hey, that's my paper, man. That's money.
Tenpenny: This is drug money.
Carl: My money, man.
Officer Eddie Pulaski: Hey, don't worry about it, I'll fill it out later.
Tenpenny: Welcome home, Carl. Glad to be back? You haven't forgotten about us, have you boy?
Carl: Hell no, officer Tenpenny. I was just wondering what took y'all so long.
Tenpenny: Get in the car.
(Hernandez and Pulaski takes Carl to the back seat of the police car)
Carl: Ease up, man. Damn.
Tenpenny: Watch your head.
(Carl bangs his head against the police car)
Tenpenny: Oh! My bad.
Pulaski (yelling at cab driver): Get outta here, you greaseball bastard! (normal voice): Stupid Mexican. (looking at Hernandez): Oh, hey, sorry.
Carl: My bag. Hey, man, my bag!
Tenpenny: How you been, Carl? How's your wonderful family?
Carl: I'm here to bury my Moms. You know that.
Tenpenny: Yeah, I guess I do. So what else you got shakin' Carl?
Carl: Nothing. I live in Liberty City now. I'm clean. Legit.
Tenpenny: No, you ain't never been clean, Carl.
(Pulaski finds a gun)
Pulaski: Well, what've we got here?
Tenpenny: This is a weapon, Officer Pulaski, that was used to gun down a police officer not ten minutes ago. Officer Pendelbury. A fine man, I might add. You work fast, nigga.
Carl: You know I just got off the plane.
Pulaski: It's a good thing we found you and retrieved the murder weapon.
Carl: That ain't my gun.
Tenpenny: Don't bullshit me, Carl.
Pulaski: Yeah, don't bullshit him, Carl.
Carl: What the fuck you want from me this time?
Tenpenny: When we want you, we'll find you. In the meantime, try not to gun down any more officers of the law. (laughing)
Carl: You can't leave me here. It's Ballas' country.
Tenpenny: I thought you said you was innocent, Carl? That you don't bang?
Pulaski (police radio): This is car 58...
Tenpenny: See you around, like a donut, Carl. (laughing)
(Carl is thrown out of the police car)
Pulaski (police radio): WHAT? Officer Pendelbury's down? We'll be right over.
(The police car drives out of sight)
Carl (to himself): Ah shit, here we go again. Worst place in the world. Rollin Heights Balla country. I ain't represented Grove Street in five years, but the Ballas won't give a shit.
Carl (to himself, when approaching Grove Street): Grove Street - Home. At least it was before I fucked everything up.
