First Date is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas given to protagonist Carl Johnson by Catalina from The Welcome Pump bar in the town of Dillimore in Red County, San Andreas.


Catalina is inside The Welcome Pump in Dillimore and is threatening two men with a knife. Carl enters the room and explains to her that he is looking for a friend's cousin, who he discovers is Catalina. The two leave The Welcome Pump and Catalina explains to Carl that they are going to rob four locations across the county: a Gasso petrol station, an Inside Track betting shop, a liquor store and a bank.


There is no monetary reward for completing the mission, which is technically a cutscene; the only thing Carl needs to do is arrive with (or obtain afterward) a vehicle. The missions Tanker Commander, Against All Odds, Local Liquor Store and Small Town Bank are unlocked. However, after completing the chosen mission, the other three missions need unlocking once again. Upon completion of the first job, The Truth will also invite Carl by phone to meet him at a motel in Angel Pine.


Video Walkthroughs


  • The song playing in the background cutscene is "Green River" by Creedence Clearwater Revival. The song is also heard on the in-game station K-DST.
  • This mission, along with First Base, Gone Courting and Made In Heaven are considered to be along the storylines of Bonnie and Clyde, who were also a couple on a robbery spree.
  • Carl tells Catalina that he's a "God fearing man" hinting he believes in God.
  • There are unique dialogues from Catalina if the player chooses to do any robbery mission for the first date besides Tanker Commander. Because the other robberies all require the player to return to Catalina's hideout when the job is done, Catalina will tell Carl about her hideout in Fern Ridge and then tell him how to get there. More dialogue between Carl and Catalina can be heard while returning to the base (see video).
