Big Smoke

Big Smoke is the second storyline mission in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, and it is the first one that protagonist Carl Johnson does by himself in the Johnson's House.

The mission is the only mission in the game, and potentially amongst the very few in the series, in which there is absolutely no gameplay whatsoever; right after completing the first mission, this mission automatically starts; after the cutscene of the mission, this mission instantly ends and triggers Sweet & Kendl.


Carl Johnson, after arriving in Grove Street on a bicycle, enters his childhood home and finds a picture of his recently deceased mother Beverly. He takes a chair and sits down, reminiscing on the time when his sister Kendl threatened to inform Beverly of Carl's antics. Big Smoke, a long time friend of Carl's, enters the living room from the kitchen with a baseball bat and threatens to attack Carl, not initially recognizing him. Carl reasons with Big Smoke and the two embrace. Carl and Big Smoke talk about Beverly's death and the fact of Carl wanting revenge before leaving the house and driving to the cemetery at Market in Smoke's Perennial.


There is no monetary reward for completing the mission and the mission Sweet & Kendl is unlocked automatically after the end of it. In the remastered version for Xbox 360, the achievement Getting Started is unlocked.


CJ enters the house.
CJ picks up a picture of Beverly Johnson off of the floor and looks at it.
Kendl Stop it, what are you doing? Carl, Brian, stop it!
CJ Quit it, Moms will hear.
Kendl Mom, they're up to something.
CJ sits at the table.
Big Smoke enters wielding a Baseball Bat.
Big Smoke You picked the wrong house, fool!
CJ picks up the chair to defend himself.
CJ Hey, hey, hey, hey, Big Smoke, it's me, Carl, chill, chill!
Big Smoke CJ? Awww, my dawg, wassup? Hey baby, you okay nigga?
CJ Nah man, it's my Moms, homie.
Big Smoke Hey, I don't know why this had to happen, but I promise you, I'm gonna find out who killed your Moms. The streets is cold dawg. Like it says in the book, we are blessed and cursed.
CJ What fucking book?
Big Smoke Same things make us laugh...that make us cry. But right now we gotta take care of our business and go see your brother at the cemetery, come on, let's bounce.
CJ and Big Smoke exit the house.
Big Smoke You wanna drive?
CJ Yeah, that's cool. Nice car, Smoke.
Big Smoke You know me, it's not cut, keep the value, keep it great
