Aunt Enid: Lance tells me he's running things down there. He's such a good kid...
- As with the previous mission, Leap and Bound, whatever vehicle is brought to the mission trigger point remains available after the initial cutscene. Using a motorcycle (preferably a PCJ-600 as opposed to an automobile makes chasing and killing Forbes easier since bikes allow forward drive-bys. Victor has the option of taking one of the Stallionz' bikes after the gunfight.
- This missions plot may be a parody of a recurring joke in the Police Academy films as an antagonist/s would be lured to the gay bar under a lie e.g: best salad bar in town. In this case its the protagonists lured there using the lie that there is a contact there who knows about the shipment.
- The Wintergreen, Freeway, and Ventoso in this mission all have higher horsepower.
- If you listen to the radio after finishing this mission, it only talks about how the White Stallionz was shot up and has no reference about Bryan's death.
