Taking Out The Laundry
So, the laundry won't pay me protection. The Triads think they can mess with me!" ― Toni Cipriani
Taking Out the Laundry is a mission in given to Grand Theft Auto III protagonist Claude by Toni Cipriani from his mother's restaurant in the Saint Mark's district of Portland Island, Liberty City.
Toni tells Claude that he wants him to destroy two
vans used by Mr. Wong's Laundromat, after the Triads had attempted to ambush him before. Toni tells Claude to drop by 8-Ball's Eightballs Autoyard in Saint Mark's to collect some grenades. After leaving Toni, Claude locates and destroys the three vans (two vans in the 10th Anniversary Edition), avoiding pursuing Triads after destroying the first van.
Toni Cipriani: Take a seat kid, take a god damned seat. So the laundry won't pay any protection eh? The Triads think they can mess with me? Let's teach these would be tough guys what it means to be a tough guy.
Ma Cipriani (Voice only): Yeah, teach 'em some respect. No son of mine gets it from some Triads. Your father, god rest his soul, took no crap from no Triads back in Sicily.
Sorry Ma. Yes Ma. I want you to destroy their laundry vans and mangle any triad gimp that gets in your way. 8-Ball can supply you with what you're gonna need.
The reward for completing the mission is
$20,000. The mission The Pick-Up is unlocked by completing the mission.

After Toni says that the triads are nothing with him, his
starts encouraging him to stand up to the triads, to which Toni shamefully responds.
