Introduction (GTA VC)
In The Beginning... is the introduction sequence at the start of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. It shows the Forelli Family discussing the release of protagonist Tommy Vercetti (also known as the Harwood Butcher) from prison, after taking the fall for the family and serving 15 years. The mafia members decide to send Tommy to Vice City to man their drug operations there.
Sonny Forelli: Tommy Vercetti...Huh! Shit. Didn't think they'd ever let him out.
Mafia goon: He kept his head down, helps people forget.
Sonny: People will remember soon enough. When they see him walking down the streets of their neighborhoods. It will be bad for business.
Mafia goon: Well, what are we gonna do, Sonny?
Sonny: We treat him like an old friend and keep him busy out of town, OK? We been talking about expanding down South, right? Vice City is twenty-four carat gold these days. The Colombians, the Mexicans, hell, even those Cuban refugees are cutting themselves a piece of some nice action.
Mafia goon: But it's all drugs, Sonny. None of the family will touch that shit.
Sonny: Times are changing. The families can't keep their backs turned while our enemies reap the rewards. So, we send someone down to do the dirty work for us... and cut ourselves a nice, quiet slice. OK? Who's our contact down there?
Mafia goon: Ken Rosenburg, schmuck of a lawyer. How's he gonna hold Vercetti's leash?
Sonny: We don't need him to. We just set him loose in Vice City. We give him a little cash to get started, OK? Give it a few months. Then we go down. Pay him a little visit, right? See how he's doing.
