- "Lamar has a plan to make some extra cash."
- ―GTA V description at Rockstar Games Social Club.
- "Look homie, I don't mind dying. You feel me? But I just want to die with something that matters. That's what Forum Gangsters should be about."
- ―Franklin Clinton
Lamar and Chop show up at Franklin's house. Lamar tells Franklin to come along to "pick up some shit from around the corner". Franklin asks why they can't drive instead, but Lamar insists that they walk.
After they reach their destination, they walk into an alley, where they find D chatting with a woman. Before being spotted, Franklin and Lamar both cover their faces with green bandanas. D notices them and a hostile conversation initiates. Lamar finally pulls out his pistol and aims it at D, who responds by taking off on his motorcycle, almost hitting the two in the process.
Franklin and Lamar quickly get back into Lamar's van and start chasing after D. Franklin is doubtful about catching up with the speeding motorcyclist.
The chase continues into a railyard. Franklin loses the trail and the player is prompted to take control of Chop to sniff out D. During the search, Chop suddenly runs off across a nearby street, after having spotted another (male) dog of the same size. Chop begins humping the other dog, much to Franklin's chagrin. Eventually, the two continue their search and find D hiding inside a boxcar. D jumps out and runs off again, but Franklin sends Chop after him. After a short chase Chop manages to bite D, forcing him to the ground.
Franklin apprehends D and Lamar arrives with the van. After being forced into the van, D recognizes Lamar by his voice and the back of his head. There's some brief dialogue about D remembering Lamar and Franklin from when they were little.
Franklin takes the drivers seat and they drive back towards Lamar's house. During the ride, Lamar makes a ransom call to the Ballas from his cell phone and demands $40,000 for D. Franklin tells Lamar that the Ballas will be able to trace the cell phone and will know where they are now. Franklin tosses the phone out of the truck and forces Lamar to let D go. Franklin then drives to the BJ Smith Recreational Center to drop off Lamar and Chop.

- @railroad_pete47 - "so im on my break and a dude runs past gettin chased by one them huge psycho guetto dogs. nature program apex predator shit man no joke"
- In this mission, the player can switch to Chop to sense D, hence making it first time in the series to see from an animal's point of view in the game.
- Chop also takes up a temporary character slot, and can be switched with Franklin.
- If Chop is well trained (via the iFruit App), he'll listen to Franklin and come back when he calls him. Franklin will also compliment Chop for listening and tell Lamar that his dog's well trained.
- During the dialogue between Franklin and Lamar while they are going to Vinewood Boulevard to capture D, Franklin mentions that Lamar used to steal tankers. This is a reference to some of Lamar's missions in Grand Theft Auto Online, where the GTA Online Protagonist needs to steal various tankers across San Andreas and deliver them to Lamar.
- If this mission is started prior to doing Father/Son, while driving up Vinewood Boulevard, Franklin and Lamar will discuss Simeon Yetarian not looking after them; if this mission is started after completing Father/Son, Franklin and Lamar will have a different conversation with Franklin saying that he has made a new contact.
- During the chase, Lamar will make a direct reference to Franklin's Special Ability, saying to him use that "special driver thing that he does".
- D's Bati 801 cannot be obtained after he crashes into the bus; pressing the button command to exit the van won't do anything.
- When Chop is chasing after D (just before being bit by Chop), one could shoot D, but he will not take any damage nor will he be affected. Blood will still spill where D is shot. Also, Stun Gun hits will not affect him.
- Judging the dialog between Lamar and D, it is implied that Lamar and D most likely know each other from past encounters.
- When Franklin enters the van after putting D in the back, the radio station will be tuned in to West Coast Classics, and the track "Still D.R.E." by Dr. Dre featuring Snoop Dogg will always play.
- Franklin get to use a special bandanna when confronting D for the first time in the alley. This bandanna can be worn again by going to Franklin's wardrobe and going to masks, and unlocks upon completing the storyline.
- Sometimes, when you hang out with Lamar using Franklin, they will both discuss this mission along with The Long Stretch mission.
- At the railyard, a few Train locomotives can be seen moving, however some of these have no driver.
- During this mission Franklin complains about the van's poor hill climbing capabilities, top speed and maneuverability and asks why they didn't drive Lamar's Emperor. Franklin, as a vehicle enthusiast, should know that the Emperor is almost as slow, sluggish and under-powered as the van.
