Highjack is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, given to protagonist Carl Johnson by government agent Mike Toreno from his ranch in Tierra Robada, San Andreas.


Toreno explains who he is and what he's here for. Carl apologises for what he has done, but Toreno tells him to calm down. He needs Carl to do jobs which he can't be caught doing. The first one is to commandeer a truck. He says it's a two-man job, and Carl would need someone to help him out, so Cesar Vialpando has come over.

After a small talk, Carl and Cesar hop on a motorbike and heads for a truck moving along the freeway in San Fierro, just across the Garver Bridge. While heading there, Carl tells Cesar the plan, which makes Cesar a bit nervous, as "Carl" did not mention that on the phone.

Once they have reached the truck, Carl steers the motorbike, matching the truck's speed, while Cesar is preparing to hop on it. He eventually hops on board and jacks the vehicle. Carl then hops on board, and takes the truck back to the garage in Doherty.


Mike Toreno: Hey, Carl.

Carl Johnson: Hey, what the fuck, man! Hey, Toreno, I told you my bad, man. What the hell can I say? I screwed you over.

Mike Toreno: Calm down, kid.

Carl Johnson: Just go ahead and kill me then.

Mike Toreno: Calm down!

Carl Johnson: Man, you ain't nothin' but a fucking yayo dealer anyway, Toreno.

Mike Toreno: Shut up and sit down! What, you think I'm a drug dealer? You think you're a crusader for good? Do you have any idea what's going on? Any idea whatsoever? Do you? DO YOU?

Carl Johnson: No. I pay as little attention to things as possible.

Mike Toreno: Do not be a fucking smartass with me. I work for a government agency. It is not important which one. I will try not to confuse you. Yes, when we last met, I was involved in battling threats in Latin America, BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY. That does not make me a drug dealer. Now, the money that we raised, the friends that we won over, have helped us immeasurably in our overseas interests.

Carl Johnson: Government agency?

Mike Toreno: Kids like you. You expect heroes. We're fighting a war out there. I'll be a hero and I'll lose, and what'll we have? Communism in Ohio. People sharing. Nobody buying stuff. That kind of bullshit. So relax, and listen.

Carl Johnson: Alright, alright, I'm listening.

Mike Toreno: I know what kind of guy you are. I need a guy like you. To do things I can't get caught doing.

Carl Johnson: Like what?

Mike Toreno: I need you to commandeer a truck. A rival agency, with a confused social agenda. They got things that we need. Now this is a two-man job. You'll need a friend. Use your sister's boyfriend, but don't tell him a thing. Remember, I'll be watching you.

(Cesar comes)

Cesar Vialpando: I got here as fast as I could, CJ!

Carl Johnson: Yeah, you sure did. How you know I needed help?

Cesar Vialpando: Man, you losing it holmes! You phoned me a half hour ago, man!

Carl Johnson: I did? I mean, oh yeah, I did. Sorry man, I got a whole lot on my mind.

(Carl and Cesar on the bike, headed to the freeway.)

Carl Johnson: We need to 'jack a truck on the freeway. It's headed to San Fierro.

(As approaching Robada Intersection)

Cesar Vialpando: We can get on the freeway here, holmes!

(While driving along the freeway)

Cesar Vialpando: What's the plan?

Carl Johnson: I'm gonna pull alongside and you're gonna hop on board!

Cesar Vialpando: Oh shit, you did not mention that on the phone!

Carl Johnson: It'll be a walk in the park!

Cesar Vialpando: Tell Kendl that i love her!

(Cesar prepares to hop on board)

Cesar Vialpando: Just a little closer, holmes!

(Cesar urges Carl to drive faster)

Cesar Vialpando: Match the truck's speed!

(Cesar urges Carl to move close)

Cesar Vialpando: What do you think, I'm a Mexican jumping bean? Closer!


The reward for this mission is $7,000. The mission "Interdiction" is unlocked after a post-mission phone call from Toreno instructing the player to meet him.
