- "Every dog has his day..."
- ―Uncle Leone
Uncle Leone is a supporting character in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories.
He is the elderly and hunched Sicilian Mafia head who is only featured once after the final mission of Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories. It is revealed that he was backing Massimo Torini's bid to take over Liberty City, but admits defeat at the end of the game and decides to return to Sicily in peace. Salvatore insults him behind his back, stating that he can't be trusted, to which Uncle Leone replies "Every dog has his day", a phrase cited by Tony Montana in both the Scarface film and Scarface: The World is Yours video game. This warning indeed comes to pass in Grand Theft Auto III, as Salvatore is killed by Claude, the protagonist that Salvatore betrayed three years later.
