There is no gameplay during this mission, as it is simply formed by two cutscenes. The first begins automatically after completion of the first mission and the following mission is automatically triggered following the end of the second cutscene.
Carl Johnson, after arriving in Grove Street on a bicycle, enters his childhood home and finds a photograph of his recently deceased mother, Beverly. He takes a chair and sits down, reminiscing on an occasion where his sister, Kendl threatened to tell Beverly about his antics. Big Smoke, an old friend of Carl's, enters the living room from the kitchen with a baseball bat and threatens to attack Carl, mistaking him for a burglar. Carl explains himself to Big Smoke and the two hug. Carl and Big Smoke talk briefly about Beverly's death, with Smoke promising to help find her killer. Carl and Smoke leave the house and drive to the cemetery in Vinewood in Smoke's Perennial.

In the beta version, Carl had to drive Big Smoke's car to the cemetery. However, this was edited before the game's release. Unused dialogue reveals that Carl and Big Smoke would have discussed cars in Liberty City, and that Joey Leone would have phoned the player before this mission.
