"Look, it's easy. Haven't you ever seen a movie? We walk into the bank, we wave the gun around... and leave very rich men."
Tommy Vercetti


The Job is the last Malibu Club asset mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City that protagonist Tommy Vercetti does independently.

Mission

Shortly after purchasing the Malibu Club, Tommy finds his team in order to pull of a heist at a bank in Little Havana. Tommy finds all of necessary positions for his team, and heads for the Malibu Club. Upon arrival the four of them, along with Ken Rosenberg discuss the sequence of the robbery. Then they head for the bank. Once there Tommy tells Hilary to keep driving around the block, then the three of them change out of their current clothing and into green jumpsuits with hockey masks.

Afterwards, they head inside and begin the robbery. Phil is instructed to keep an eye on all of the civilians. Tommy and Cam head upstairs to the bank's vault while killing security guards. After having difficulty with the vault, Tommy goes down to the manager's office, and holds him at gunpoint, and has him follow him. Once up there the manager helps them open the vault. Tommy then decides to check on Phil, only go to down there to find a civilian being shot by Phil for activating an alarm. Tommy then gets ready to fend off member of the Vice City SWAT. At the same time Cam tells them the vault is open. The two of them kill the SWAT Team, and head outside, only to find more SWAT waiting for them. Hilary then shows up to help them but is immediately gunned down by a SWAT agent. The team kill the remaining SWAT and drive to the nearby Pay 'n' Spray, and afterwards to Cam's Can Openers, where they meet Kent Paul and Mercedes Cortez.

Transcript
Tommy Vercetti is in the office of the Malibu Club with Ken Rosenberg, Cam Jones, Phil Cassidy and Hilary King, discussing their plan to rob El Banco Corrupto Grande.
Tommy: As you can see, gentlemen, this is going to be the easiest buck we ever made.
Ken: Tommy, seriously, you gotta consider going into law.
Phil: What the hell are you smoking, man? This ain't no simple plan! Well, who needs a simple plan, anyway? Take communism. Now that was a simple plan. Didn't do Russia any favors, huh?
Tommy: Calm down, alright? With a team like this, it's going to be no problem. We got Cam on safe. Phil, you and I will handle security, and Hilary will drive the getaway car.
Ken: Uh, heh heh, aren't you forgetting somebody? Somebody who helped you to no end in this town? Somebody who...
Tommy: Ken...Ken, that's right. Ken here, he washes the money for us, and he keeps the drinks on ice!
Phil, Cam and Hilary laugh.
Hilary: I don't understand what I am supposed to be doing here.
Tommy: Look, it's easy. Haven't you ever seen a movie? We walk into the bank, we wave the gun around... and leave very rich men.
Tommy, Cam, Phil and Hilary leave the Malibu Club.
Tommy: I'll drive.
Hilary: Great. A passenger. Wait 'til I tell the group about this.
Tommy, Cam, Phil and Hilary go to the bank in their getaway car - a taxi.
Cam: Tommy, Hilary's taking up too much room!
Hilary: I am not!
Cam: Are too!
Tommy: Hey, shut up, you two, or you can get out and walk!
Cam: Yeah, Hilary.
Tommy, Cam, Phil and Hilary approach the bank.
Tommy: For god's sakes, Phil, stop waving that thing around!
Tommy, Cam, Phil and Hilary arrive near the bank and get out of the taxi.
Tommy: Keep driving around the block, okay?
Hilary: Okay, Tommy, okay.
Hilary gets into the taxi's driver seat and begins driving around the bank as Tommy, Cam and Phil go hiding in the bushes.
Tommy: Okay, guys. Nice and easy, just as we planned.
Tommy, Cam and Phil emerge from the bushes in their disguises and go inside the bank.
Tommy: THIS IS A RAID!
Civilians scream.
Phil: NOBODY MOVE! EVERYBODY UP AGAINST THAT WALL!
The civilians follow Phil's instructions.
Tommy: Phil, hold down the fort!
Phil: Wilco, roger that!
Tommy: Come on, Cam, the vault's upstairs.
Tommy and Cam head upstairs to the elevator while shooting down security guards that get in their way. Tommy and Cam reach the elevator and go to the safe.
Cam: Damn! It's a Flange 9000! This could take hours to crack, or five minutes if you could find the manager.
Tommy: I'll go find where he's holed up.
Tommy goes back to the elevator to find the bank manager.
Tommy: Phil, things still sweet?
Phil: Sure, everything's real quiet.
Tommy finds the bank manager.
Tommy: You, you're coming with me!
Bank Manager: Okay, okay, just don't shoot!
Tommy and the bank manager head upstairs to the elevator.
Phil: I SAID NOBODY MOVE!
Tommy brings the bank manager to Cam.
Bank Manager: It's on a time lock, you might as well give up now!
Cam: Hell, I can bypass the time lock. Then we just need your keycode and we're good!.
Tommy: Stay here. You try anything - and you're dead. I'm gonna check on Phil, I'll be right back.
Tommy goes to check on Phil, just as the bank's alarm goes off.
Phil: I told you not to touch that alarm!
Phil shoots the civilian who triggered the alarm.
Phil: The SWAT team will be here any minute. I could do with some help here, Tommy!
Tommy goes to hide behind the desk and awaits the incoming SWAT team forces.
SWAT Officer: Vice City SWAT! You are completely surrounded!
Phil: Surrounded? (laughs) They're crapping themselves, corrupt bastards!
Cam: Tommy! The vault's open!
Tommy: Okay, we got the SWAT retirement fund. Let's get out of here!
SWAT Officer: Ok, you asked for it! You've had your last chance!
Phil: They're storming the place! Take cover!
The SWAT team officers rappel from above into the bank and attack Tommy, who fends them off.
Phil: That's the last of them. GO! GO! GO!
NOTE: The following dialogue will play if Cam dies.
Phil: Where's Cam?
Tommy: History.
Tommy, Cam and Phil head outside the bank, surrounded by more SWAT officers.
Phil: Shit! Where's Hilary? I'll give him abandonment issues!
Hilary arrives in the getaway car and gets out.
Hilary: Hey, guys! Get in, I got you covered!
Hilary shoots at the SWAT officers and dies. Tommy, Cam and Phil lose the cops and head to Cam's Can Openers in Viceport.
Phil: We made it! We're rich! RIIIIICH!
NOTE: The following dialogue will play if Cam dies.
Phil: Shame Cam didn't make it, he was a good guy!
Tommy: Yeah, still, more for us!
Phil: Damn straight! YEEEE-HAAAAH!
Mercedes: Tommy, would you like a massage?
Tommy: Oh, hi there, Mercedes! Yeah, I'm a little tense.
NOTE: The following dialogue plays in the 10th Anniversary Edition.
Kent: What'd I tell you, Tommy? What'd I tell you? Bent SWAT better watch out when Kent Paul is in town. Come on, gimme a bigger slice, mate. Come on, I gotta get some new threads.

Glitch

  • If the player completes Two Bit Hit before this mission, the Havana Outfit will be put behind an invisible wall and will not be obtainable. To avoid this, Cop Land, No Escape? and The Job missions should be completed before Two Bit Hit. This was patched on the Mac version and the mobile ports of the game.

Trivia

  • The song that can be heard playing in the background during the opening cutscene is "The Freaks Come Out at Night" by Whodini. The song isn't featured on any of the in-game radio stations. The song isn't played inside the Malibu Club during normal gameplay either, but does appear on the in-game radio station Fresh FM in the prequel Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories.
  • When the gang get in the taxi outside the Malibu Club at the beginning of the mission, regardless of which character gets into which seat, once everyone has entered Hilary will automatically be placed in the front seat, Phil in the rear driver's side seat and Cam in the rear passenger seat (tested on PC version).
  • If the player kills the man who triggers the alarm, another bystander will take his place. If this bystander is killed, the hostages will begin to attack Tommy.
  • If several hostages are killed before the alarm is tripped it will go off automatically after a certain number have been killed.
  • Tommy mentions stealing the SWAT retirement fund (deleted dialogue shows that Kent Paul informed him of this). At the end of mission, Kent Paul comments on this, saying "What'd I tell you, Tommy? What'd I tell you? Bent SWAT better watch out when Kent Paul is in town.".
    • The deleted dialogue is re-included in the 10th Anniversary Edition.
  • On the way to the bank, damaging the vehicle will result in a different conversation between Hilary and Cam.
  • If the player runs out to the street in the robbery outfit after being directed to enter the bank, the player will fail the mission and a pop-up message will scold the player about letting the public know about what they were doing by showing them what they were wearing. Following this, Phil and Cam disappear and a four-star wanted level will be instantly triggered.
  • Looking at the security monitors will show Phil watching over the hostages.
  • If Cam is killed inside the bank, he will drop a briefcase, which the player must collect. During the cutscenes after Tommy and Phil exit the bank and after they get to Cam's house, there are some additional lines of dialogue about his death and after exiting the bank with Cam dead these additional dialogues can be heard "Where's Cam? History.".
    • If Cam dies, the game script will indicate that Tommy and Phil get a bigger profit from the heist, though the reward remains the same. It might suggest that canonically Cam survives the heist.
  • The SWAT officers will still attack the player even after player enters the Pay 'n' Spray. It is also the only time in-game where the SWAT team appear at a three-star wanted level as in regular gameplay they appear at a four-star wanted level. It is also one of two missions where SWAT uses MP5 instead of Micro SMG (the other being Juju Scramble).
  • If Tommy is to abandon Phil and Cam and follow Hilary and the taxi in a different car, it will be reviled that Hilary will drive throughout Vice City instead of just driving "around the block" at Tommy's suggestion. This can be viewed here.
