Sonny on the phone

Sonny Forelli on the phone with Tommy

An Old Friend is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. Its one of the other missions that the player doesn't have to do anything. Its unlocked by completing the Introduction.


After the last incident at the docks, Tommy Vercetti must tell Sonny Forelli what happened. Tommy tells Sonny that the deal was ambushed by a group of men and he lost all the money and two Forelli members. Sonny becomes enraged after hearing this so he orders Tommy to get his money back and to find and kill those that were involved with the ambush. Tommy tells Sonny that he has his word.


(Tommy calls Sonny)

Tommy Vercetti: Hello Sonny.

Sonny Forelli: Tommy! Tommy, it's been too long. I know, I konw. You're just overwhelmed with emotion. Fifteen years - seems like only yesterday.

Tommy Vercetti: I guess that's a perspective thing.

Sonny Forelli: Hey, doing time for the family is no piece of cake, but the family looks after its own, ok? So, how'd the deal go down - you sitting on some white gold?

Tommy Vercetti: Look Sonny, we were set up. The deal was an ambush. Harry and Lee are dead.

Sonny Forelli: You better be kidding me Tommy! Tell me you still got the money.

Tommy Vercetti: Sonny..I don't have the money.

Sonny Forelli: (angrily) That was my money, Tommy, MY MONEY! You better not be screwing me Tommy because you know I'm not a man to be screwed with!

Tommy Vercetti: Wait Sonny! You have my personal assurance and I'm going to get your money back and the drugs. And I'm gonna mail you the dicks of those responsible.

Sonny Forelli: Hey, I already know that. You're not a fool Tommy, but I warn you, neither am I. If it was anybody else you'd be DEAD already. But because it's you, because we got history, I'm gonna let you handle this.

Tommy Vercetti: Look, Sonny, you got my word.

Sonny Forelli: I'll be in touch.

(Sonny hangs up and Tommy angrily throws the phone)
