“The Colombian Cartel is making SPANK somewhere in Liberty, but we don't know where, and they seem to know everything we're doin' before we do. We got us a rat! There is a guy named Curly Bob works the bar at Luigi's. He's been throwing more money around than he's earning. He ain't pimpin' or pushin', so he must be talking.”
Salvatore tells Claude that someone in the Leone Family is a rat, selling secrets to the Colombian Cartel who are manufacturing SPANK somewhere in Liberty City. Salvatore tells Claude to follow Curly Bob, a barman at Luigi's Sex Club 7 who has been spending more money than he earns at Luigi's.
Claude drives over to Luigi's and follows Curly Bob, who takes a taxi to Portland Harbor, where he meets Catalina and Miguel of the Cartel. Catalina hands Bob the SPANK, with Bob then telling them of the Leone Family's problems with the Triads and the Forelli Family. After Catalina and Miguel leave, Claude kills Curly Bob.
Leave us alone for a minute. The Colombian Cartel is making SPANK somewhere in Liberty, but we don't know where, and they seem to know everything we're doin' before we do. We got us a rat! There is a guy named Curly Bob works the bar at Luigi's. He's been throwing more money around than he's earning. He ain't pimpin' or pushin', so he must be talking. He usually gets a taxi home after work, so follow him, and if he's ratting us out... kill him.
OK, so the Leones are fighting wars on two fronts. (sniff) They're in a turf with the Triads with no sign of either side giving up. Meanwhile Joey Leone has stirred up some bad blood with the Forellis. (sniff) Every day they're losing men and influence in the city. (sniff) Salvatore is becoming dangerous and paranoid. (sniff) He suspects everybody and everything.
Salvatore highlights how Curly is spending more money than he is earning working at Luigi's. Curly does not sell drugs, nor does he pimp out prostitutes, therefore he must be the rat.
Salvatore informs Claude that Curly takes a taxi home every day after work, and instructs Claude to follow his taxi to see if Curly indeed is the rat. If Curly indeed turns out to be the rat, Salvatore orders Claude to kill him.
Claude running back to his vehicle.
Claude heading to Luigi's Club, where Curly Bob works.
Catalina asks Curly if he was followed and Curly says no, unaware of Claude, who was following him. Curly asks Catalina if she has his "stuff".
Catalina hands Curly some SPANK and tells him to tell them something about the Leones.
Curly tells Catalina and Miguel about the war between the Leones and the triads and Joey Leone's bad blood with the Forelli Crime Family, before noting that Salvatore does not even suspect Curly being a rat.
Catalina comments on Curly's loyalty and sarcastically says that Salvatore has nothing to worry about, before heading off with Miguel.
Claude, after learning of Curly's betrayal is tasked with killing him.
Curly Bob's taxi will not appear on the radar but a "spookometer" appears warning the player if they get too close. This is the only use of a "spookometer" in the entire game, though it reappeared in later games in the series.
Pedestrians will no longer appear in Portland Harbor after this mission.
If Claude drives a taxi, he can pick up Curly Bob from the bar and take him to the meeting instead of following him.
