My compliments on a job well done Mr. Teal. My client was very pleased. I have more work for you with a more 'hands-on' approach. Your next job is taped under the phone...
Mr. Black

Waste The Wife is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City given to protagonist Tommy Vercetti by Mr. Black from a public phone booth in Vice Point, Vice City.


Mr. Black gets in contact once again with Tommy, thanking him for his earlier job well done. He then goes on to explain his next task, his employer wants his wife, Mrs. Dawson, dead. Tommy drives to the jewelry store in Vice Point, where he sees Dawson leaving and getting into her yellow Comet. Tommy destroys her car by ramming his car to it, to make it look like an accident, despite her attempts to escape after she realizes Tommy's intentions, completing the mission.

Mission Objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Mrs. Dawson will be leaving the Jewelry store in Vice Point soon. Kill her. It must look like a car accident.
  • You must make Mrs. Dawson's death look like an accident. Do not use any weapons.
  • When her car bursts into flames make your self scarce!
  • She's gonna blow! Get out of there!


Video Walkthroughs


  • Mrs. Dawson's Comet is locked during the mission. It can be obtained by performing a drive-by on the vehicle (which will fail the mission), causing Mrs. Dawson to flee, leaving the door open. If the player gets into the vehicle, it will lock again and Tommy can drive around without the risk of being pulled out by police or gang members, though he will be unable to re-enter the vehicle if he exits and closes the door, and the vehicle will lose this ability if the player attempts to store and save it in a garage.
  • If Mrs. Dawson is killed by being rammed into the river, the mission will pass but her death will not be included in the player's stats in the game's pause menu.
