— Cesar Vialpando

Carl responds to Cesar with incredulity, arguing that Big Smoke would never get involved in drug dealing, and that the drug epidemic is the fault of the C.R.A.S.H. team. Both Kendl and Cesar try to convince Carl of Smoke's responsibility for the dealing and Balla/ LSPD ambush of the Grove Street Families, but Carl is still unwilling to believe them.
