"Hey, Yokel, your dumb cousin isn't here. Go get me a coffee."
Vladimir Glebov

Easy Fare is a mission in Grand Theft Auto IV given to Niko Bellic by his cousin Roman Bellic to taxi a regular customer, Jermaine Andrews.

This Mission introduces Wanted Levels, and opens Vlad Glebov's mission strand.

Mission objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:


Opening scene

Niko enters Roman's cab depot, where Vlad and Mallorie Bardas are talking. Vlad and Niko exchange some unpleasant words when Vlad tells Niko to get him a cup of coffee. Roman walks in to interrupt the scene, and Vlad suggests he and Niko do him a few favors to pay off his debts. After Vlad leaves, Roman asks Niko to pick up a regular customer, Jermaine Andrews.

Driving Jermaine

Get in Roman's Taxi and follow the GPS to Rotterdam Hill in BOABO to pick up Jermaine. He asks Niko to take him to Masterson Street in Hove Beach. During the drive, Jermaine will explain that there's a shipment of stolen auto parts in the lockup that he intends to resell; he just needs Niko's help in transporting them.

At the lockup, the first sign that something is amiss is that the door is open. Jermaine thinks the cops are on to him, and seemingly on cue two Police Cruisers roll up the street, sirens wailing. Jermaine panics and yells for Niko to get him out of there.

Niko receives a two-star wanted level for this incident, and must evade the Police. The two options are to either out-run the wanted radius, or to use a Pay 'n' Spray (provided the Police don't witness the vehicle entering). The nearest Pay 'n' Spray is in Broker, just south of Outlook Park. Once the police are no longer in pursuit, make your way to the GPS destination on Gibson Street, Native Engines, which also houses a Pay 'n' Spray. Drop off Jermaine , and try out the Pay 'n' Spray for free the first time.

After completion of the mission, Vlad will call Niko asking that he work for him, as Roman owes him money, unlocking the mission "Bull in a China Shop". Roman will also call Niko, offering him some work as a taxi driver. Later, Roman will call Niko again, informing that he is making prank calls to the police with a new friend; the call does not unlock anything.

Mallorie Bardas Oh, hey Niko.
Niko Bellic Where's Roman?
Mallorie Bardas Huh. Good question.
Vladimir Glebov Hey, yokel. Your dumb cousin isn't here. Go get me a coffee.
Niko Bellic What?
Vladimir Glebov Get me a fucking coffee! Come on... I'll get you one. What? You keep staring at me, I'll burst one of your eyeballs. Gorgeous, this guy's a fucking creep!
Mallorie Bardas Give him a break. He's new in the country.
Vladimir Glebov I can see that. Did you walk here from nineteen eighty five?
Niko Bellic Yeah.
Vladimir Glebov Excellent! Now stop fucking staring at me. I mean, I know I'm good looking and everything, but come on.
Roman Bellic Aah, hey, Mallorie. Hey man!
Niko Bellic Hey.
Mallorie Bardas Huh. About time.
Roman Bellic Vlad... Vladdy boy... what's going on?
Vladimir Glebov Roman! Roman boy... you tell me what's going on.
Roman Bellic Nice aftershave! What is that? "Sex Pest"?
Vladimir Glebov No, it's "Where Is My Fucking Money"?
Roman Bellic I had it, I had some of it... then those Albanians you said you would deal with came and smashed my computer.
Vladimir Glebov So it's my fault?
Roman Bellic I didn't say that...
Vladimir Glebov Good.
Roman Bellic Anyway, Niko dealt with them... broke Dardan's arm, then beat up a couple more. Then we teach them a real lesson.
Vladimir Gleboc Is that so? I'll tell you what... while you don't pay, maybe you and Niko can do me a few favors.
Roman Bellic Sure.
Vladimir Glebov Good.
Roman Bellic Why not?
Mallorie Bardas Later, Vlad.
Roman Bellic What?
Mallorie Bardas The phone's ringing.
Roman Bellic Hey? Yeah... okay... no, I can't do it; my cousin can do it. Yes he can drive. No, he's not a cop. His name is Niko. He'll be right over. Niko, sorry to ask, cousin... can you go pick up Jermaine, one of my regulars? He's over on Rotterdam Hill on Mohawk Avenue.
Niko Bellic Whatever.
Roman Bellic What was this all about?

Mallorie Bardas I know.

Dialogues 1
Niko Bellic drives Jermaine Andrews to Masterson Street. (First Possible Dialogue)
Jermaine Andrews Shit. I thought Roman was gonna pick me up. I need someone I can trust for this run.
Niko Bellic I'm Roman's cousin. If you can trust him, you can trust me.
Jermaine Andrews Ahh, he told me about you. You're Niko, right? The hotshot lady's man, cruising around the Mediterranean, breaking hearts and making millions?
Niko Bellic Yeah, I traded in the yacht for this cab. That's exactly the kind of bullshit I can imagine Roman making up. You've got to give him credit for his imagination.
Jermaine Andrews Yeah, you gotta. I had a feeling you sounded too good to be true. The question is, are you willing to get your hands dirty?
Niko Bellic My hands haven't been clean for a long time. Being in Liberty City is just making them dirtier.
Jermaine Andrews Ok, ok. I've got to pick up some hot parts from my lockup, you down?
Niko Bellic I ain't got no problem with that. Just don't tell me if you stole this shit from a hospital or a school for sick kids. My conscience is troubled enough already.
Niko Bellic drives Jermaine Andrews to Masterson Street. (Second Possible Dialogue)
Jermaine Andrews Thanks for coming. Can you take me over to Masterson Street?
Niko Bellic Masterson Street it is, Jermaine.
Jermaine Andrews Where's Roman? Are you a cop? You've got to tell me if you're a cop. That's the law.
Roman Bellic Actually, I don't think I would have to tell you if I was a cop. That's just some bullshit that cops circulate to trick people into doing deals with them.
Jermaine Andrews So, you're not a cop?
Niko Bellic No, I tried to join the LCPD.
Jermaine Andrews Yeah...
Niko Bellic I'm Niko, Roman's cousin.
Jermaine Andrews Shit, you just shoulda told me that. Jesus. You nearly gave me a heart attack. I wouldn't want no cop driving me to pick up a load of hot parts.
Niko Bellic You shouldn't have said that, Jermaine. I've grounds to arrest you now.
Jermaine Andrews Ha ha. That's a joke, right? A funny fucking joke. You should let your cousin stick to the jokes. Making funny don't suit you.
Cutscene 3
Niko Bellic arrives at Masterson Street. Soon, the cops arrive.
Jermaine Andrews That door isn't meant to be open. Wait here while I take a look. The cops are onto me. Get us out of here! Lose the cops, man. Lose the fucking cops. Shit.

Jermaine Andrews I'm spinning out, man. Get these cops off our tails. Help man, you gotta shake these cops. I ain't going down, man. Get rid of this heat. Lose the cops, man. Lose the fucking cops. Shit. Shit man, you gotta lose these cops.
Niko Bellic escapes the wanted zone
[These dialogues will play in random]
Jermaine Andrews I don't think they see us. Now, if we can stay outta their sights for a little longer we be all good. Alright, I don't think they know where we are. Don't attract an unnecessary attention. Cool, I think we managed to shake them. We just need to lay low for another minute.
Niko Bellic loses the cops.
[These dialogues will play in random]
Jermaine Andrews They're gone. Thank you. Great, we've lost them. That's a weight off my mind.
Niko Bellic drives to Gibson Street. (First Possible Dialogue)
Jermaine Andrews So, what brings you to Liberty City, Niko?
Niko Bellic Roman, I guess, and some other things. I'm looking for something.
Good luck finding them. How's the hunt been going so far?
Niko Bellic Roman has had some issues with loan sharks that needed to be resolved. There's this asshole called Vlad who he owes money to as well...
Jermaine Andrews Good luck with that...
Niko Bellic drives to Gibson Street. (Second Possible Dialogue)
Jermaine Andrews Did you come to Liberty City to drive cabs then?
Niko Bellic No, I didn't. Just like every other chumps who gets off a boat here. I thought things might be more exiting. This is just the beginning. It seems I need to sort out my cousin's life before I can work on my own.
Jermaine Andrews Oh yeah, what's wrong with Roman's life.
Niko Bellic He appears to owe money to half of Hove Beach. I got rid of one group of loan sharks but this asshole. Vlad, he has his hooks into him as well.
Jermaine Andrews Roman is lucky to have you here, Niko.
Niko Bellic arrives at Gibson Street. Jermaine Andrews then enters.
Jermaine Andrews Okay, we're here. Thanks, man. Keep looking after Roman, a'ight.
