Vinnie: "This is our big chance, Mike. We've almost got enough money to leave Liberty City for good. I'm tired of playing errand boy. We need strike off on our own and lead the good life"
Mike: "I've got your back, Vinnie. You got me off the streets and back on my feet."
Vinnie: "I knew I could count on you. We don't owe nobody nothing and the police aren't on to us. It's time to make a new start."

Jump Start is the first storyline mission in Grand Theft Auto Advance, given to protagonist Mike by Vinnie from Chinatown in Portland Island, Liberty City.


Vinnie and Mike are close to having enough money to leave Liberty City, but need to do one last job. Vinnie has a meeting with the Mafia, likely the Leone Family, and has Mike drive him to Momma's Restaurante in Portland Beach. When they arrive, Vinnie goes into the meeting and asks Mike to return to their hideout to make sure they're not being watched. Mike drives to the hideout and is paged by Vinnie, with instructions to return to the restaurant.
