Not to be confused with Pickups.

"The laundry has agreed to pay. You did real good, kid. Go collect the cash and bring it back here."
Toni Cipriani

The Pick-Up is a mission in Grand Theft Auto III given to protagonist Claude by Leone Family Caporegime Toni Cipriani from his mother's restaurant in the Saint Mark's district of Portland Island, Liberty City.


Claude goes to Momma's Restaurante and reads a note left by Toni, with Toni requesting that Claude pick up the protection money from Mr. Wong's Laundromat. Toni says that the money is in a briefcase being the laundromat in Chinatown, but warns that the Triads may attack. Claude drives to the alley behind the laundromat and collects the briefcase, before the Triads ambush him, with Claude managing to kill all the Triads and escape back to Momma's Restaurante with the money.


Ma Cipriani
(Voice only):
TONI's off making people bleed or trying to. He'll never be as tough as his Pop, but he left you a note on the table.
Claude picks up the note and reads it.
Toni Cipriani
(Voice only):
The laundry has agreed to pay - you did real good kid! Go collect the cash and bring it back here. Watch out for the Triads. They may be shoving a firecracker up your ass, but don't take no crap. Nobody I mean nobody, messes with TONI CIPRIANI!
Claude goes to Chinatown. He is ambushed when picking up the briefcase. Claude kills the attackers and returns the briefcase to the restaurant.


The reward for completing the mission is $10,000. The mission Salvatore's Called A Meeting is unlocked. The Triads are now hostile towards Claude (if they're not already due to the player completing El Burro's mission Trial By Fire).

  • During the intro, Toni says his own name as "Toni Ki-priani" instead of the usual "Toni Si-priani". This appears to be an uncorrected mistake by the voice actor, Michael Madsen.
