Pre mission phone call

Niko: Jacob? The rasta?

Contact: Don't ask unnecessary questions. I want you to take out this guy's chopper. He was last spotted in Varsity Heights. No civilian casualties.

Niko: Hey, Jacob.

Little Jacob: Yo Niko, got some serious fire power up in here. Rocket launcher! Bo!

Little Jacob: Ain't nuthin' but badda badda. There be the other chopper. Stick to him, Niko. We need to take him down where there be no people.

Niko: For a man who has asked me to kill a lot of men, this guy is really safety conscious.

Little Jacob: Seen. He got that government ting about him. All for the greater good and ting.

Little Jacob: True dat. Yo, dis be some crazy shit ya know Niko. Yo, we inna the Star Junction in a helicopter. Dis some real spy shit I and I is doing ya know.

Niko: Shows you the people who need spy shit done get other people to do their dirty work.

Little Jacob: Seen, bredren. Everyting rash!

Niko: Shit, Jacob. You really gotta smoke that thing now? The secondary smoke doesn't exactly help my hand-eye coordination. And I'm paranoid enough with US government on my ass. Whatever actually, just smoke it.

Little Jacob: Rhaaatid! What a' gwan?

Niko: Don't worry about the bridge, Jacob. I'm finally getting the hang of flying this thing.

Little Jacob: Yo Respect! Ya a righteous rudeboy, Niko.

Post mission phone call

Niko: We shot down that chopper for you.

Contact: You think I don't know that? You think I've been sitting around scratching my balls with my head up my ass.

Niko: I'd be impressed if you had been.

Contact: I appreciate your assistance, Bellic. You did a good thing today. Now it's my turn. I will try to find the man you're after. I will call when I have something.

Failing the mission

Helicopter destroyed

Little Jacob dies

Niko: We lost Jacob in this piece of shit mission of yours.

Helicopter flies into Alderney

Little Jacob: Rhaatid. Him back over on land again.

Niko: Shit.

(Niko calls the U.L. Paper contact)

Niko: We couldn't get a clean shot on the chopper.

Contact: Dammit. Maybe he should have been taken down anyway. Maybe the casualties would have been fewer overall. Fuck the math. This is no way to fight a war. There might be another opportunity.
