  NOTICE: This guide may only be distributed and/or posted in its original 
          format (and, most importantly, UNALTERED in any way).

  If you wish to post or use excerpts from this guide, PLEASE ask for my
  permission before doing so (especially if you work for a magazine or

I truly want to thank those who have written to me about this guide even if
you haven't received a response. I tend to read my e-mail late at night and
sometimes I'm too tired to respond right away. Mainly because I'm either a)
updating my other GTA (plus Riddick) related documents, b) hacking up a
console or doing more RGB experiments, or c) I've had a rough night at work
(I work retail you know....).

I've received a lot of nice e-mail about this guide from people around the
world saying how good the guide is and offering suggestions (many of which
made it into the previous revisions). I intend to continue updating and
polishing this document for as long as possible.

My name is Robert Allen Rusk and I am a hardcore gamer with about 30+ years
of gaming experience. I am an ex-gametester (Broderbund Software, LucasArts
Games, Point Of View Computing) and an ex-arcade attendant (Namco
Cyberstation - Pier 39, San Francisco, CA).

I also own multiple systems such as the Sega Dreamcast, Super Nintendo,
Nintendo 64, Atari Jaguar, PlayStation 1 and 2, Xbox, and Xbox 360.

I currently work at JCPenneys at one of the malls here in San Antonio, TX. 
Retail isn't the best job in the world but JCPenneys is a very stable company
unlike some of the other places I have worked for in the past like internet
service providers or web programming companies.

I started writing guides in 2003 because I felt it was something I could do
utilizing my writing skills gained in college and gametesting along with my
passion for vidgames. Over time I have honed my overall writing and
organization skills plus my creative thinking skills. I have extended the
play value of the games I have written guides and FAQs for many times over
plus I have received many letters from all over the world.

I am also what one may call an RGB enthusiast. I hack my game consoles to try
to get the best possible video from them and that usually involves tapping
into the RGB Analog video signals and using them on the right monitors to
achieve my desires. To this end I became a member of the GamesX.com mod forum
and I post regularly on their "RGB + Video Discussions" forum area.

In addition, I am a member of the X-Otic Computer Systems of San Antonio
(www.xcssa.org), a group who specializes in Linux, Mac, and other systems.

I am also a regular forum poster at GameFAQs, an occasional poster at
www.Atariage.com and Digital Press, and I am also a member of the MOFAT (a
members only message board set up by "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City" players
who met on the Vice City message boards at GameFAQs).

Outside of gaming, my interests include Godzilla (I have been a G-Fan since
the age of ten) and Red Dwarf (I own all eight series on DVD).

As far as favorite sports teams go my teams are the San Antonio Spurs (NBA)
[the local team], the Denver Broncos (NFL) [although I live in Texas I am
originally from Colorado Springs, Colorado], and the Air Force Falcons (NCAA
Football).

This guide was constructed using BBEdit Lite 6.1 and a Power Mac Workgroup
Server 8550/200 (with a G3 card running at 330 MHz). It is now being
maintained using TextWrangler 2.1.2 on a 1.5Ghz Single Core Intel Mac Mini. I
view my work in Safari to help in seeing how it would look on the web and
correct format errors.

For this particular document I placed the PlayStation 2 (Original) version of
Vice City into my Mac's DVD-ROM drive. From there I copied the file called
"american.gxt" to the hard drive. Then I opened it up in BBEdit Lite and
removed most of the weird garbage with the Find and Replace feature. After
that I went through the document and found the stuff I did not recognize from
all the hours spent playing Vice City. That stuff was copied to another
text document for further sorting and processing.

Welcome to my Vice City Hidden Text FAQ! This FAQ goes over the large
amount of text that was written up but was not used in the game but was
buried instead of removed. This was also done on GTA3 and San Andreas. Vice
City has more hidden text than GTA3 but has far less than San Andreas.

The material being presented here is actual text found on the game disc in
the file called "american.gxt". I did not make any of it up and if you put it
your computer and open it up in a text editor you can see it for yourself.

What I have done here is sort everything out as best I could so I can
properly present it. In the process of sorting the text I tried to find out
who says what and what was supposed to happen within the sequence of events.
Some of the text was easy to sort through and some of it was very difficult.

Originally I placed the Hidden Text section at the end of my Vice City guide.
But after the success of my San Andreas Hidden Text FAQ I decided to put the
hidden text from Vice City into its own FAQ so I can streamline my Vice City
guide.

For starters here's an slightly different version of the opening movie text
(taken from where Ken picks up Tommy at the Airport):

Ken: "Hey, hey, guys! It's, uh, Ken Rosenberg here! Hey! Heh, heh, hey, 
      great, hey! Well, uh, I'm gonna drive you guys to the meet, okay? Now, 
      I've talked to the suppliers and they are very, huh-ha, keen to start a 
      business relationship, so, uh, if all goes well, we should, uh, be 
      doing very nicely for ourselves, which is, y'know... good.. Okay, so. 
      They're brothers, okay. One operates the uh, the business, and the 
      other one does the flying. Now they operate out of Mexico, They own a 
      farm in Panama. Okay, all right, listen - you guys, when we get there 
      should I stay in the car, or do you guys want me to come in with you 
      guys?"

Tommy: "No. Stay in the car."

Ken: "You know what, I thought about it, I'm gonna watch the car."

.....later, at the meet:

Ken: "Ok, that's them in the chopper. All right, here's the deal. They want a 
      straight exchange on open ground. All right? Ok. Stay tight, let's go. 
      All right. Take it easy, now. I'm right here. The cars running, baby! 
      Got it?"

Dealer: "100% pure grade-A Colombian, my friend. The greens?"

Tommy: "Tens and twenties...used."

.....then, the ambush:

Tommy: "Go on, get out of here! Drive!"

......back at Ken's office:

Ken: "Screwed! We're screwed! This is soo typical, I poke my head out of the 
      gutter for one freakin' second, and fate shovels shit in my face! Well, 
      screw you!"

Tommy: "Shut your face and quit complaining! You're alive, aren't ya'? Drop 
        me right up here. Go dump the car, then go get some sleep. I'll drop 
        by your office tomorrow and we can start sorting this mess out."

Ken: "OK, that's a good idea, I'll get some sleep. What are you gonna do?"

Tommy: "Make my way back to my hotel, clear my head, and figure this crap 
        out. OK."

 \=========================================================================/

Avery Carrington had some additional work you could've done:

Avery: "Hey Tommy, it's Avery! Now listen, I got me all tied up at the moment 
        and I have a representative of mine needs chaperoning out to the 
        Gator Keys. I'm after some land out that way, so I'm sending someone 
        out to sweeten the deal. Could you do me a favor and make sure he 
        gets there ok?"

Tommy: "Yeah, sure thing Avery. Where'd you want me to pick him up?"

Avery: "He's just finishing some business at the building site. I said you'd 
        pick him up from there."

Tommy: "No problem. See you later, Avery."

| II.3. An Additional Mission For Diaz (?)                                  |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

This group of text was bunched with some stuff concerning Diaz. I had a
couple of readers, Finke and Pawe, note that some of this text appears in the
missions "The Fastest Boat" (Ricardo Diaz) and "Rub Out" (Ricardo Diaz). But
it unclear at this time if all of this text is used in just those two
missions:

"Hope you fall and break your neck!"
"I'm sick of these pricks."
"See those marker boys? Try taking out the lights!"
"You sure is better at shooting than talking."
"Thanks. You're a real charmer yourself."
"I Know, Tommy."
"You cool with Kenny Loggins?"
"Hell, I love this record"
"You killed Lance!"
"Don't shoot, dude!"
"What's in this stuff?"
"He's taking the boat. Bummer."
"Help! Some square's stealing the boat, man!"
"Uugghh! That's the last of them."
"I'm going to start her up."
"I think we've got some new friends."
"Yeah."
"Do you know where we're going?"
"Are we lost?"
"We got some competition!"
"Take 'em out!"
"It's time for the Lance Vance Dance!"
"They're matchwood! And fish food."
"We made it! Those other boats ain't VIP class."
"They're getting desperate!"
"My damn feet are wet! WE'RE TAKING ON WATER!"
"Bridge coming up!"
"Bail out, she's about to blow!"
"Good shooting."
"You killed Lance!"
"Go on Tommy, I'll be ok!"
"Eat this, you murdering bastards!!"
"I'm pinned down!"
"I got you covered Tommy!"
"Hey, this is a real nice herbaceous border."
"Hey Tommy, can my room have a view of the bay?"
"Beautiful high ceilings in here...Lance! I need cover!"
"Diaz must be inside!"
"Lance!"

0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

Then there's this piece of advice from Ken Rosenberg after you start
acquiring properties:

Ken: "Hey Tommy, I thought you might need some business advice. Once you got 
      an operation up and running, you'll need to drop by and take the week's 
      cash. Let the guys think they got the run of the place and they'll try 
      shaving the profits - ok?"

Tommy: "Hey, I know how to handle business, Ken, ok?"

Ken: "Ok, ok. I know, you know. I know. I was, I was just, you know, telling 
      you I know, that you know, that I know. Just keeping it sharp baby!"

Tommy: "Whatever, Ken, whatever..."

0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

Rockstar had some additional conversations between Kent Paul and Tommy that
were dropped for some reason:

0===============0
| Conversation 1 \
0=================0

Kent: "Hey there Tommy, you're gonna love me mate. A little birdy told me 
       that Vice City SWAT Division has a deposit box at a certain rather 
       large banking establishment, where they keep all the bribes they've 
       taken over the years, like some kind of old boys' retirement fund. Of 
       course, if this information should ever help you acquire any of that 
       cash, I guess you'd feel obliged to push some of it my way?"

Tommy: "I'll bear that in mind, thanks Kent."

Kent: "It's Paul. I'm from Kent, near London, you prat."

Tommy: "My provincial English geography ain't what it was."

(Note: This might explain the "SWAT Retirement Fund" line within "The Job" 
(Malibu Club Asset))

0===============0
| Conversation 2 \
0=================0

Kent: "Tommy, mate, it's Paul, from Kent, a couple of proper sorts have your 
       name written all over them, down at the Malibu."

Tommy: "What are you talking about?"

Kent: "Sorts. Birds. You know. Girls. Tastey ones, don't think they're 
       brasses or nothing. You gotta come check them out."

0===============0
| Conversation 3 \
0=================0

Kent: "Tommy V, It's KP here. Kent Paul. Word on the street is people want to 
       rip you off. Keep your eye's peeled, my son. And remember, I didn't 
       say nothing to you about this."

 /=========================================================================\
0===========================================================================0
| II.6. An Introduction From Umberto Robina                                 |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

Rockstar had an alternate version of the initial phone call between Tommy and 
Umberto Robina:

Umberto: "Hello, is this Mr. Tommy Vercetti?"

Tommy: "Yes."

Umberto: "Well, I hear through the vine of grapes you the man when someone 
          got a vermin infestation."

Tommy: "Maybe..."

Umberto: "Well, I got a real vermin infestation. Haitians everywhere. My name 
          is Umberto Robina and I want you to meet me at the Cafe Robina as 
          soon as you can, 'cause I tell you, these damn Haitians gone too 
          far this time."

 /=========================================================================\
0===========================================================================0
| II.7. Mr. Moffat                                                          |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

This would've been a cool mission if Rockstar had decided to implement it:

Moffat: "Vercetti? VERCETTI!! Damn you man, you've got to help me!"

Tommy: "Mr. Moffat? How's family life?"

Moffat: "Damn you to hell, HELL, do hear me?!"

Tommy: "Well it was nice chatting..."

Moffat: "WAIT! Wait, Vercetti - Tommy, can I call you Tommy? We're both 
         businessmen, yeah? You know a good deal when you hear one, ok?"

Tommy: "I don't have time to chat, get to the point."

Moffat: "MONEY. Money is the goddamned point. I've escaped the coop again, 
         but it's never long before they track me down - they think it's a 
         damned game! I'm at a pay phone somewhere in this god forsaken shit 
         hole. Get me out of here before they take me back and...and..oh 
         go-o-od..."

Tommy: "Well, I'm busy for the next -"

Moffat: "No! Don't shit with me here, have a heart! No man should have to do 
         such, such things. I'm on my knees here Tommy, in the dirt begging 
         you please..."

Tommy: "I guess I could swing by that way, see if I can spot you..."

Moffat: "Oh god, they're coming. For the love of Christ hurry, hurry!"

 /=========================================================================\

| II.8. Sunshine Autos                                                      |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

Apparently Tommy took on a little more than just Sunshine Autos:

Stranger: "Mr. Vercetti? I have here a signed piece of crap stating that you 
           have taken on all of BJ's Auto's debts. With BJ's sudden 
           disappearance I have no choice but to hold you responsible for his 
           financial insecurities. Until this account is settled in full you 
           should consider Vice City's streets to be very unfriendly."

 \=========================================================================/

Then there's this exchange between Steve Scott and Tommy that was part of a
mission that was dropped:

Steve: "Look, I gotta ask you a favor."

Tommy: "Steve! How's filming going!"

Steve: "Fine, fine. I, heh, WE need a car chase scene, but our budget can't 
        stretch to it. I've left some wheels around town. You'll know what to 
        do."

Tommy: "Ok Steve, I'll keep an eye out. Catch you later."

 /=========================================================================\

0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

Then there are these gems between Tommy and Mercedes:

0===============0
| Conversation 1 \
0=================0

Mercedes: "Hiya Tommy!"

Tommy: "Hi Mercedes, howyadoin'?"

Mercedes: "I got a new apartment up in Vice Point - thought you might want 
           to drop by sometime."

Tommy: "I'd love to. I'll catch you later."

0===============0
| Conversation 2 \

Mercedes: "Tommy, it's me."

Tommy: "Hi Mercedes."

Mercedes: "Tommy, I so bored, when we going to have some fun?"

Tommy: "What do you mean?"

Mercedes: "Well, I know you're busy fighting and killing and corrupting 
           people, but I just want to have some fun. So don't forget about 
           me, you hear?"

Mercedes: "Tommy, I hear you kill Ricardo Diaz. There was an unfortunate fire 
           at his mansion. I think he burnt to death in an acrylic shirt. 
           Tommy, I so proud of you. I knew you were a real man. He awful 
           trouser stain of a man, you make me so proud to be your friend. 
           No, I know you going to be busy trying to take over this town, but 
           don't forget about me, you hear?"

Mercedes: "It's Mercedes. I no longer love you Tommy. I no longer do. 
           Honest. 'cause you no longer nice to Mercedes. You no longer treat 
           her like a lady. You ignore me and I hate you. I insist you come 
           to see me right away!"

Mercedes: "Tommy."

Tommy: "Hey Mercedes."

Mercedes: "Hey indeed Mr. Tough Guy. I real angry with you Tommy. Never make 
           me hang out with Jezz Torrent again. He is pathetic. Half way 
           through he starts crying about his doggie that died when he was 7 
           years old and that his mommy never loved him. And Tommy. He wear a 
           wig and a bra in private. I not very happy with you!"

Mercedes: "Ooh Tommy, its Mercedes. I just want to say, I have so much fun on 
           that film set. Anything else you have like that, you let me know. 
           I really mean that. I always wanted to be an actress. I think I 
           learn a lot about the dramatic process. It so enlightening! Thank 
           you. Thank you. I see you real soon. Adios."

I think this could've been the phone call you get from Phil after you 
complete the Main Story Missions:

Phil: "Tommy, the wound is healing well. Funny thing is, I have fought in 6 
       battle zones and always walked away without a scratch, and now this! 
       One armed Phil. Still, I got me a healthy selection of one handed fire 
       power so I'll never be unarmed Phil, you hear. Any way son, cut out 
       the sentimental crap and go buy yourself a drink, you hear!"

There may've been more between the Colonel and Tommy but was not fully
explored. This an alternate version of the Colonel's phone call after
completion of the Main Story Missions:

Cortez: "Tommy, it is always a struggle here. Excuse the poor line, we have 
         just had another failed coup. The people are the most demanding 
         mistress of all. So far, we have had three revolutions and four 
         coups since I return from Vice City. Luckily, I have been promoted 
         each time. Maybe everyone is humiliating me. Tommy, you are proving 
         very useful, my friend."

Tommy: "Thanks, Cortez. What about my deal?"

Cortez: "Tommy, I am working tirelessly on your behalf to ensue we get to the 
         bottom of this trench of stinking lies and deceit, you have my word 
         on that, but in the meantime, please accept the esteemed thanks of 
         my people for your work on our behalf."

  TheGenie, and many other guides sites
