    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 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. Additionally, 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 Analog Video enthusiast. I hack most of 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 on their "RGB + Video Discussions" forum
    area from time to time.
    
    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. We
    are also a group of hackers and electronics enthusiasts.
    
    I am also a regular forum poster at GameFAQs, an occasional poster at
    AtariAge, Digital Press, GTA Forums, and Video Game Saga. 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 am also a long time soundtrack collector
    with many titles in my possession. 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. It is now being maintained using TextWrangler on an Apple 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 then 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."

    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" and "Rub Out". Another reader, X99, suggested
    that some of these lines were also from the mission "Rub Out".
    
    It unclear at this time if all of this text is used in just those 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?"

    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

      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."

            "The Job".

    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!"

    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."

      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."

      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?"

    | Conversation 3 \
    0====================================================================>
    
      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?"
    
    0===============0
    | Conversation 4 \

      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

    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."
