Boomshine Blowout is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories given to protagonist Victor Vance by Phil Cassidy from Phil's Depot in Viceport, Vice City.


Victor Vance goes by Phil's Depot looking for some work and once again finds a drunk Phil Cassidy. Phil, at first, won't admit that he is drunk does know that the Cholos are planning to blow up his liquor stored at The Big Package Storage Co. warehouse in Little Havana. After reminiscing about his abusive father, Phil decides to help Victor get the boomshine before it blows up Vice City.

Victor drives to the warehouse and Phil opens the door, causing an explosion inside. Victor uses a Forklift to move the four cases of boomshine on to the back of Phil's Walton. Phil then drives away to find a safe place to put his drink.


Victor Vance: Phil, what's going on? You're a mess.

Phil Cassidy: I'm not drunk. I'm just resting my eyes.

Victor Vance: Okay... so, what's going on?

Phil Cassidy: My Boomshine's about to get blown sky high by a bunch of angry scumbags.

Victor Vance: What?

Phil Cassidy: Them Cholos are gonna blow up my liquor - there's so much of it at the warehouse one match'll blow it all the way to Tennessee. Tennessee, here I come...

Victor Vance: Phil - Come on. Let's deal with it.

Phil Cassidy: The thing is Vicky boy, my daddy was an angry man. He never, ever told me I was special. In fact - he used to beat me. Especially when he caught me staring at my cousin or my sister. You know what he said to me? He said I'd be better off dead...

Victor Vance: And how exactly is this helping?

Phil Cassidy: The tragedy of it is, I'm just like him - I'm a drunk. I deserve to die! It should have been me instead of Zack on hill 491 man. I'm coming home, daddy! Yeah daddy! I'm coming home.

Victor Vance: You're pathetic.
