Forbes: "You want info? How about this: There's a dealer's boat mooring out Downtown today. The dealer's not the trusting kind and only meets one on one. He's carrying money and coke, and he doesn't believe in bodyguards."
Vic: "Why should we trust you?"
Forbes: "If I'm lying, genius, I'm a dead man, right?"
Bryan Forbes tells the Vance Brothers about a drug dealer they can contact

Leap and Bound is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories given to protagonist Victor Vance by undercover cop Bryan Forbes from an abandoned apartment complex in Little Haiti, Vice City.


After being tied in a chair, Forbes is now asked by Lance Vance and Victor for information about the shipments coming into town. He informs them of a deal going-on in Downtown and the dealer only meets one-on-one and doesn't believe in bodyguards. Lance goes to see the dealer while Vic goes up on a roof watching over him with binoculars. After a short moment Lance is kidnapped by the dealer and taken into a big freighter in Viceport. Vic gets in a car and follows the boat with Lance in it at shore and enters the big freighter. Sharks gang-members are protecting the place, Vic kills all the enemies on his way and makes it inside the freighter. After untying Lance, the two realize Forbes' information are fake. Victor, then, takes all the cocaine packages in the freighter and meets Lance on the shore.

Video Walkthrough


  • The dealers Victor will be meeting are members of the Sharks.
  • The name of the mission is a reference to the term "leaps and bounds".
  • The mission's chase scene may have been inspired by the pilot episode of Miami Vice, where James 'Sonny' Crockett is chasing after Ricardo 'Rico' Tubbs (played by Lance's voice actor, Philip Michael Thomas) alongside the water in a car.
  • The dealer's boat is actually a faster variant of the Speeder, it has no in-game name.
