Tommy Vercetti goes to Ken Rosenberg's office trying to get some leads, following the orders of Sonny Forelli. Ken Rosenberg tells Tommy that Colonel Cortez is having a party on his yacht and that it would be best to start with Cortez, who set up the deal. Ken gives Tommy his invitation but tells Tommy to stop at Rafael's and get a new outfit. Tommy leaves the office and drives to Rafael's where he gets a new suit. Tommy then drives to the yacht at the marina and meets Cortez, who says they can talk about the ambushed drug deal later. He introduces Tommy to his daughter Mercedes Cortez, who then points out each of the party guests. However, when Ricardo Diaz arrives, she leaves with Tommy, having him drive her to The Pole Position Club.
In order to complete the mission the player must:
Go get some new threads from Rafael's clothes shop
Get to the Colonel's boat
Take the Colonel's daughter to the Pole Position Club
Go get some sleep,- he says - I have been sitting in this chair all night with the lights off drinking coffee. This is a disaster. We are so screwed, man! These gorillas, listen to me, are gonna come down here and rip my head off. It's ridiculous! I did NOT go to law school for this! OK, now what the hell you gonna do?
Shut up, sit down and relax. I'll tell you what we gonna do. You're gonna find out who took our cocaine - and then, I'm gonna kill them.
That's a good idea, that's a GREAT idea. Let me think, let me think, let me think. - OH! There's this retired colonel, Colonel Juan Garcia Cortez. He's the one that helped me set up this deal well away from Vice City's established thugs. OK? Now, listen. He's holding his party out in the bay on his expensive yacht and all of Vice City's big players are gonna be there. OK? I have an invite, of course I have an invite, but there's no that I am going out there sticking my head out the door - No way, not gonna happen.
Ken gives Tommy the invitation card
I told you, shut up! I'll go myself...
HO - whoa whoa! Hey, I like 1978 too, but y'know this isn't gonna be a beer and strippers do. I mean, no offence but I think you might turn heads on the runway for the wrong reasons.
What's wrong with the way I'm dressed?
OK, look, here. Stop by Rafael's, tell him I sent ya. He'll make you look respectable.
Ken gives Tommy a card. Tommy leaves the office.
Who does that guy think he is? Now I gotta dress like a chump as well as hang out with them? I like this shirt..
Tommy arrives at Rafael's and changes into a new suit. After exiting the shop he sees a person parking a Freeway bike on the other side of the road.
Hmm... Nice Bike!
Cortez's yacht. Tommy arrives at Colonel Cortez's yacht and is introduced to the colonel.
Buenas noches. I understand you are here on the behalf of Mr. Rosenberg. I hope any recent problem has
not affected his health, or uh, mental well being. Mr. ... uh?
Vercetti. He's just got a touch of ...agoraphobia.
Excellent, excellent. And you?
I just want my merchandise.
Ah. It's unfortunate circumstances for all involved. Of course I have initiated my own lines of inquiry, but such a delicate matter will take time. Perhaps we will talk later. Meanwhile let me introduce you to my daughter, Mercedes!
Cortez calls to Mercedes and she walks over to them.
Caramia, can you after our guest while I attend my necessary obligations?
Of course daddy.
You try living with it. Anyway, let me point out some of our more distinguished guests...
The song that can be heard playing in the background during the boat party cutscene is "Out of Touch" by Hall & Oates. The song is also featured on the in-game radio station Flash FM.
If someone hurts Tommy while Mercedes is with him, she will protect him by fighting back.
If a car is used to take Mercedes to the Pole Position Club she will ask Tommy another question, saying "Do you mind me resting my hand in your lap?". She will still say this if she sits in the back of a vehicle.
