Taking the Fall is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories given to protagonist Victor Vance by his brother Lance Vance from his apartment in Ocean Beach, Vice City


Lance is talking to their accountant on the phone just as Vic enters. The two have a brief talk before heading out. When outside Vic asks Lance about who stole the yayo of theirs. Lance after thinking for a minute mentions the Bikers being guilty for that. Vic flies a Maverick over to Starfish Island, where some Bikers are riding on their bikes. When Lance kills them all, Vic flies over to the hotel in Downtown so Lance kills more Bikers. After a shoot-out, Lance looses balance and falls off the helicopter, while the chopper itself catches on fire. Vic then bails out of the chopper and starts making his way inside the hotel to find Lance. When all the Bikers are dead, Lance comes out of a room on the hotel with a bike. When Vic asks him where the coke is, he says they were already sold and rides away on a ramp leading away from the hotel.

(Lance, Vic Vance inside Lance's apartment.)

Lance: Yeah, I'm Lance T. Vance, baby! 'T' for tulips in Thailand. Great. Yeah, look, I gotta go. A'ight. Later.

Vic: So who was that?

Lance: Oh, bro, that's just the accountant. He's getting us a better rate at cleaning the money.

Vic: And you call the accountant "baby"?

Lance: Well, yeah. I'm a friendly guy. And "baby" is slang, you know? I don't love him. I ain't like that.

Vic: Yeah, hey, whatever you say.

Lance: Anyway, we got real things to worry about. Someone's been helping themselves to the stash. The Mendez's are freaking out, and I told 'em we'd take care of it.

Vic: Aw, that's the last thing I need, on top of everything else.

Lance: What are you talking about? What's wrong?

Vic: Oh, man, it's just... Louise. I really thought we had something, but... we just don't get to see each other.

Lance: Yeah... Well, you know, relationships can be tough. Believe me, I know. Uh-huh. Yep. Come on, man, we got some thieves to deal with. You can take out your sexual frustrations on them! Come on. Let's pop!

Vic: Yeah.

Lance: You know, I love you, bro. Aye...

Vic: So who's been stealing the yayo?

Lance: What? Oh... Yeah, uh... it's... the bikers.

Vic: You sure?

Lance: Yeah. 'Course I am.

Vic: You don't look it.

Lance: Well, I guess I'm just gonna have to prove it to you. You do the flying, I'll do the frying! Come on, let's take it to 'em!

(Vic is flying and Lance spots some Bikers.)

Lance: I can see a bunch of those ugly mothers down there. Take us in closer. I'm gonna pop a few heads. That's it! Run, you sissy boys! Eat it! I'm so good I'm bad! Chew on lead, biker boy! There's more on the roof!

(The chopper is damaged, Lance falls out of the chopper.)

Vic: We're hit!

Lance: Ooooh, shiiiit!

Vic: Lance!

(All the Bikers are dead, Vic goes to find Lance.)

Vic: Lance, are you there?

Lance: Hey, Vic! Look what I found!

Vic: You're alive! I thought you were dead.

Lance: No, man. I landed on a few soft bikers. Now I've got me a new bike! Yeah!

Vic: Never mind that. Where's the stolen coke?

Lance: Uh, yeah... Uh, they probably sold it already, the bastards. I'll see you later, bro.

Vic: I don't even know why I bother sometimes.
