Weird Science is the first mission in The Trouble With Clones DLC for Saints Row: The Third.


In this mission, The Protagonist and Pierce learn that a boy named Jimmy Torbitson has cloned Johnny Gat, but it went horribly awry, so the duo set out to find him. They start by searching the nearby Friendly Fire, but he isn't there. Then they go to Technically Legal, but again Johnny has already left. The Protagonist interrogates the owner and escapes in Jimmy's car.

Please add exact respect value



  • Jimmy is a temporary homie during this mission, but not unlocked as a homie after the mission is completed.
  • There are no unlockables for completing this mission.
  • Jimmy's "thoughts" in this mission are in contrast to the actual events:
    • When he ponders that "the heroes were waiting patiently for backup to kick in", actually the "heroes" (The Protagonist and Pierce) curse and complain about why Jimmy is late. Also, when he ponders that "he was ready for action", he was actually panicked upon his arrival.
    • While escaping with the Saints in his mother's car, Jimmy narrates that the Saints asked for an explanation on how the bio-scanner worked. However, neither The Protagonist nor Pierce ask him anything, and the former cuts him off when he gives an explanation.
  • Jimmy's Zimos has infinite mass, indestructible tires, cannot flip, ignores all obstacles and only takes 10% of normal damage, effectively making it 10 times stronger than normal. While Jimmy is in the car, he is indestructible.
  • If you kill the club owner while Jimmy is talking, his line will be cut off, and the following "Police Arrive" lines will not play.
  • The subtitles include "Surprise Heli" and "Surprise Turret" segments which do not appear in the game.



You don't know me, but I'm your biggest fan! And I... well, I need your help. Do you know Smiling Jack's Diner? Meet me there and I'll explain everything.
— Jimmy, pre-mission phone call

Re-arrange these into the in-game order, and update to description lines with details about when each occurs

The Protagonist - Female 1: "Police were called to the strip club."
The Protagonist - Female 2: "We are going to the strip club next. The police were called there too."
The Protagonist - Female 3: "Time to hit the strip club. Seems like Gat might be there."
The Protagonist - Male 1: "Looks like he may have gone to the strip club."
The Protagonist - Male 2: "Police got a call about a disturbance. Looks like he went to the strip club."
The Protagonist - Male 3: "We're headed to the strip club. Gat's probably been there."
The Protagonist - Zombie: "Sneers"
Pierce: "Shit, that sounds just like Johnny."
— "After Club Call"
The Saints realized they had no idea where to continue the search. But then...
— Jimmy, "After Interrogate 1"

Indeed their friend had not been to the purveyor of weapons close by, but perhaps the next merchant would prove more... enlightening.
— Jimmy, "After Wrong FF"

Pierce: "Where's all the police?"
The Protagonist - Female 1: "And where's Johnny?"
The Protagonist - Female 2: "Nevermind them, let's find Gat."
The Protagonist - Female 3: "Not my problem right now."
The Protagonist - Male 1: "Jimmy was probably wrong about them."
The Protagonist - Male 2: "Don't know, don't care."
The Protagonist - Male 3: "Maybe they've left."
The Protagonist - Zombie: "Roars"
— "Arrive at Club"
Pierce: "You have any idea where to start?"
The Protagonist - Female 1: "If Johnny's pissed, he'll want a gun. Try Friendly Fire."
The Protagonist - Female 2: "If this is really Johnny I would guess he's heading to Friendly Fire."
The Protagonist - Female 3: "With Johnny, he'll want a gun. Try Friendly Fire."
The Protagonist - Male 1: "If it's really Johnny, he'll want a gun. We're heading to Friendly Fire."
The Protagonist - Male 2: "Well, if I had to guess I'd say he'd hit up Friendly Fire."
The Protagonist - Male 3: "Friendly Fire. If this is Johnny, he's gonna want a gun."
The Protagonist - Zombie: "Snarls"
Pierce: "Everything this town has to offer and that would be his first thought?"
The Protagonist - Female 1: "He's in a strange place and unarmed. Hell, it was my first thought here."
The Protagonist - Female 2: "He has to arm himself, like we did when we arrived."
The Protagonist - Female 3: "I needed a gun when I got here."
The Protagonist - Male 1: "It was mine when I got here."
The Protagonist - Male 2: "Johnny'd want to be ready to go after his enemies."
The Protagonist - Male 3: "He's like me, always has to be prepared."
The Protagonist - Zombie: "Growls"
Pierce: "Yeah, but you knew we had to take on the Syndicate. A clone of Gat ain't gonna know that."
The Protagonist - Female 1: "His brain's scrambled. Sounded like he wants to make someone pay for Aisha's death."
The Protagonist - Female 2: "And if he's reliving losing Aisha?"
The Protagonist - Female 3: "Look, he's still pissed about Aisha, not looking to play craps."
The Protagonist - Male 1: "You heard Jimmy, he still thinks he's out to avenge Aisha."
The Protagonist - Male 2: "But if he's still pissed about Aisha, he may try avenging her."
The Protagonist - Male 3: "From what Jimmy said, he's still carryin' on about Aisha's death. He'll wanna make someone pay."
The Protagonist - Zombie: "Gurgles"
Pierce: "Shit... good point."
— "Begin Drive to FF"
Having arrived just in time to save the Saints from certain death, the three set out on a chase through the metrolpolis of Steelport in search of their cloned friend. Amazed by the device built for such a purpose, they asked for an explanation on how it worked.
— Jimmy, "Begin Gat Chase"

Jimmy: "Guys! I've been listening to the police radio and there's something happening at Technically Legal. They say it involves some big monster. I'll bet..."
The Protagonist - Female 1: "Right, we got it."
The Protagonist - Female 2: "You should stay out of this, Jimmy."
The Protagonist - Female 3: "Yeah, I can figure that one out too."
The Protagonist - Male 1: "Just leave this to us, will ya kid."
The Protagonist - Male 2: "We'll do the betting here, you just keep out of this."
The Protagonist - Male 3: "Leave it to the professionals kid."
The Protagonist - Zombie: "Mumbles"
— "Call About Club"

Interrogation: "I already called the police. Look at what you Saints did to my club!"
Pierce: "Hold up man, we didn't have nothing to do with it."
Interrogation: "Like hell you didn't. I heard that... that THING! He said he was Johnny Gat. I read the papers, he's a Saint."
— "Club Owner Rant"

Pierce: "Morningstar? Think they're after Johnny too?"
The Protagonist - Female 1: "I plan on asking them."
The Protagonist - Female 2: "I plan on finding out."
The Protagonist - Female 3: "Don't know, but how 'bout we ask?"
The Protagonist - Male 1: "I don't know, but we better check it out."
The Protagonist - Male 2: "Only one way to find out."
The Protagonist - Male 3: "Let's ask."
The Protagonist - Zombie: "Roars"
— "Correct FF"
Damn, would you look at this mess?
— Pierce, "Enter Club"

Jimmy: "So you see, with the DNA from the Gat clone programmed into this bio-scanner, I can look for traces of..."
The Protagonist - Female 1: "Just say it works and leave it at that."
The Protagonist - Female 2: "I don't care for explanations, just results."
The Protagonist - Female 3: "Did I ask? Just shut up and keep tracking Johnny."
The Protagonist - Male 1: "Jimmy, I'm a little busy and I don't care how it works, just that it does."
The Protagonist - Male 2: "If it works, great. I don't care about the details, Jimmy."
The Protagonist - Male 3: "Do I really look like I care? Just keep tracking Gat."
The Protagonist - Zombie: "Growls"
— "Explain Tracker"
Interrogation: "What the hell do you want?"
The Protagonist - Female 1: "Wanna keep breathing you'll tell me what Morningstar was doing here."
The Protagonist - Female 2: "Why was the Morningstar here? I suggest you start talking."
The Protagonist - Female 3: "To start breaking things. Unless you tell me what Morningstar was doing here."
The Protagonist - Male 1: "Tell me what Morningstar was doing here and I might let you live."
The Protagonist - Male 2: "Why's Morningstar here? Start talking or I'll start breaking things."
The Protagonist - Male 3: "What's the Morningstar doing here? Tell me and you might live."
The Protagonist - Zombie: "Grunts"
Interrogation: "As long as you don't give me to that brute! He attacked some of our guys nearby, so we were tracking him down. Now can I go?"
Pierce: "We better find Gat before these guys do."
— "First Interrogation"
He's faster than I had anticipated.
— Jimmy, "Gat Moving Fast"

Dammit, this would be a lot easier without the Steelport PD on our asses.
— Pierce, "Get Police Off Back"

I can track Gat on my device here. Just keep us safe, alright.
— Jimmy, "Getting In Vehicle"

Listening to the sage-like advice of their intelligent and trusted friend, they raced over to the local strip joint ready to deal with a full police investigation. But when they arrived...
— Jimmy, "Heading to Club"

Holy shit, Gat's taking down helicopters!
— Pierce, "Heli Downed"

The Protagonist - Female 1: "What do you want, Jimmy? We're under attack here."
The Protagonist - Female 2: "Now is not a good time, Jimmy."
The Protagonist - Female 3: "Now's not the time, Jimmy."
The Protagonist - Male 1: "I don't have time for this, Jimmy."
The Protagonist - Male 2: "Can't this wait, Jimmy? I'm kinda busy."
The Protagonist - Male 3: "Bad time, Jimmy."
The Protagonist - Zombie: "Snarls"
Jimmy: "I know, I heard on the police scanner they have you trapped inside. I have a way to track Gat! Just wait there."
The Protagonist - Female 1: "Wait, don't... Well shit, now we're waiting here for the kid."
The Protagonist - Female 2: "No, Jimmy, wait... Well, I guess we have to keep alive until he arrives now."
The Protagonist - Female 3: "Oh no you... dammit! Jimmy's coming here, we have to hold out."
The Protagonist - Male 1: "Jimmy? Shit... Guess we're holding out here until that kid shows up."
The Protagonist - Male 2: "Hold on, what?... Great. We're waiting here for Jimmy it looks like."
The Protagonist - Male 3: "Wait Jimmy! Damn kid. Guess we're holdin' out here for now."
The Protagonist - Zombie: "Sneers"
— "Jimmy Rescue Call"
Better leave one alive if we're gonna find out what's up.
— Pierce, "Leave Alive"

And so our adventure begins...
— Jimmy, "Mission Start"

Seeing our heroes approaching, footsoldiers of the notorious Morningstar gang rained down a hail of bullets. Realizing the presense of these henchmen must hold a clue to the whereabouts of their friend, keeping one alive was their only avenue for answers.
— Jimmy, "Morningstar At FF"

The Protagonist - Female 1: "What happened here? Where did he go?"
The Protagonist - Female 2: "We are not leaving until you tell us what happened here."
The Protagonist - Female 3: "Johnny Gat's dead. Now what happened here?"
The Protagonist - Male 1: "Listen, you better start talking. What happened here?"
The Protagonist - Male 2: "Tell. Me. What. Happened."
The Protagonist - Male 3: "Listen, buttercup. I want details on what happened here, got it."
The Protagonist - Zombie: "Grunts"
Interrogation: "Jesus! That big guy came in screaming his name and something about stripper poles, then started trashing the place! People panicked and he ran off."
— "Owner Interrogate"
Despite all the obstacles the police put in our way, we continued our pursuit. Gaining on our target, it was Gat himself who found a way to keep us from reaching him.
— Jimmy, "Plane Coming"

Holy shit, Gat downed a PLANE!
— Pierce, "Plane Downed"

Would'a thought maybe Gat would be at Planet Saints. Guess not.
— Pierce, "Planet Saints Empty"

Jimmy: "At that moment, little did they know the building was being surrounded."
Interrogation: "Come out of there, Saints! We have the building surrounded!"
Jimmy: "But our heroes didn't have time to panic."
Pierce: "Man, we're in deep shit here."
— "Police Arrive"

Jimmy: "And so it was the Saints began their stand at Technically Legal. Determined to stay alive long enough to be saved from the police by their daring ally, they opened fire on the hordes of enemies bearing down on them. The danger was extreme, but they found the courage to endure. Never once did they lose faith in their friend."
Pierce: "That kid ain't coming."
— "Police Holdout"

Come on, hurry! We need to get out of here!
— Jimmy, "Pulling Up"

Pierce: "You couldn't have jacked something better than this?"
Jimmy: "This is my mom's car, I'll have you know. It's very reliable."
Pierce: "That explains so much..."
— "Regular Car Arrive"

With the relentless onslaught of law enforcement, all hope was beginning to fade. But then, at the darkest hour, a light shone through the gun smoke and hope was restored. The hero of the day arrived, unafraid and ready for action.
— Jimmy, "Set Up Rescue"

Hurry up and get out here, these guys are everywhere!
— Jimmy, "Still Inside Call"

Jimmy: "We can't get by this. We're gonna lose him."
The Protagonist - Female 1: "So we're just giving up?"
The Protagonist - Female 2: "This did not end well."
The Protagonist - Female 3: "I'm not giving up yet."
The Protagonist - Male 1: "Well that was a waste of time."
The Protagonist - Male 2: "So that was for nothing then..."
The Protagonist - Male 3: "All that for nothing."
The Protagonist - Zombie: "Sneers"
Jimmy: "Don't worry, I have a backup plan. Trust me."
— "Stop At Plane"
The Protagonist - Female 1: "You had a helicopter just lying around?"
The Protagonist - Female 2: "You have a helicopter...?"
The Protagonist - Female 3: "So a helicopter, huh?"
The Protagonist - Male 1: "How did YOU get a helicopter?"
The Protagonist - Male 2: "You're telling me you had a helicopter lying around?"
The Protagonist - Male 3: "A kid like you has a helicopter?"
The Protagonist - Zombie: "Grumbles"
Jimmy: "I, Jimmy Torbitson, am a mastermind of science and technology."
Pierce: "So you stole it."
— "Surprise Heli"
The Protagonist - Female 1: "You stole from the military?"
The Protagonist - Female 2: "Let me guess, you just happened to have this in your garage."
The Protagonist - Female 3: "You gonna tell me you built this too?"
The Protagonist - Male 1: "Where the hell did you steal this thing?"
The Protagonist - Male 2: "So where'd you steal this, kid?"
The Protagonist - Male 3: "Steal military vehicles often?"
The Protagonist - Zombie: "Mumbles"
Jimmy: "I made the clone on my own. Did you not think I, Jimmy Torbitson, have other wonderful toys in my arsenal?"
Pierce: "Yeah, he stole it."
— "Surprise Turret"
Oh shit, they called in the SWAT teams.
— Pierce, "SWAT Arrives"

Oh no! They've blocked the road ahead! Quick, clear it out before Johnny gets out of range.
— Jimmy, "SWAT Block 1"

Jimmy: "There's another roadblock ahead! We have to get through it!"
Pierce: "These guys seem to be more worried about us than a giant Gat clone."
— "SWAT Block 2"

Jimmy: "Another one! You'll have to..."
The Protagonist - Female 1: "I think I know what to do by now."
The Protagonist - Female 2: "Clear it out? Of course I do."
The Protagonist - Female 3: "Don't tell me... clear it out."
The Protagonist - Male 1: "Yeah, yeah, I'm clearing it already."
The Protagonist - Male 2: "Clear it out? I think I know that by now."
The Protagonist - Male 3: "Lemme guess, clear it out..."
The Protagonist - Zombie: "Roars"
— "SWAT Block 3"
Doubt he's here. A pissed off clone of Johnny would be causing more problems. Try the next one.
— Pierce, "Wrong FF"
