The following are dialog and mission scripts as seen during the first mission in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

Script

(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 laughing)

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.
