Plot and Walkthrough
Visiting Roman in trouble
Niko will receive a text message from Roman asking him to hurry back to the depot; he needs help. Upon entering the office, Niko will chase off the Albanian thugs, Dardan Petrela and Bledar Morina. Roman then receives a call from Mallorie, and asks Niko to pick her up from the Hove Beach LTA and take her, and her friend Michelle, to Michelle's apartment.
Drive the Women
- Get into Roman's car.
- Map marker: Roman's Taxi
- Go to the subway station.
- Map waypoint: Hove Beach LTA
- Take them back to Michelle's apartment.
- Map waypoint: Mohawk Ave. Apartment Complex
Along the way, Mallorie suggests that Niko take Michelle out on a date. She also suggests that Niko should buy some new clothes.
- Go to the clothes shop on Mohawk and buy some new clothes.
- Map icon: Russian Shop
Niko automatically calls Roman about the drive and Mallorie not liking his clothes, who suggests the Russian clothing store on Mohawk.
- Buy new clothes.
The first item purchased will be free, and will complete the mission.
- If you abandon the cab with the girls inside and the mission fails, Niko will treat it as if the cab had blown up, the same will happen if the cab is stuck.
- When Niko tells Roman that the girls have some injuries, Roman will reply in the same way he would have if Niko had assaulted the shop assistant.
- Michelle expresses an interest in Niko as she gets in the front seat next to Niko instead of the backseat with Mallorie where cab passengers usually go.
- If the player exits the car before they enter the yellow marker to pick the girls up and walk over to Mallorie and Michelle, they will not recognize Niko. You can treat them like any other ped on the street. You can knock them over and pull them around, even slightly injure with with a baseball bat, as long as you don't kill them.
- If the player starts a fight with a pedestrian or has the cops after him before he enters the yellow marker to pick up the girls, Mallorie and Michelle will come to Niko's aid and fight anyone after Niko, including the police. Even when the police shoot at the girls, they keep on fighting. The game recognises them as alies until Niko picks them up, but for this to happen is not canon.
- There's a mission in GTA V called "Three's Company." The mission was originally going to be called The Extraction. Interestigly, both missions mark the debut of Michelle in their respective games.
- The name of this mission may be a reference to Three's a Crowd, the 1984-1985 spin-off to 1977-1984 Three's Company. This is further supported by the Three's Company mission in GTA V.
- You cannot purchase clothing unless this mission is completed.
- Strangely, after you get the girls home, the mission will not fail if the cab is destroyed.
- If you exit the cab and return, Michelle will react as if Niko was stealing the car, but will not do anything once Niko gets in.
