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


In this mission, Playa 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. Playa interrogates the owner and escapes in Jimmy's car.


We need you to add more information about this subject.

  • This article needs all gameplay split by objectives

You can help by editing the page.


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" (Playa 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 Playa 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

Playa - Female 1: "Police were called to the strip club."
Playa - Female 2: "We are going to the strip club next. The police were called there too."
Playa - Female 3: "Time to hit the strip club. Seems like Gat might be there."
Playa - Male 1: "Looks like he may have gone to the strip club."
Playa - Male 2: "Police got a call about a disturbance. Looks like he went to the strip club."
Playa - Male 3: "We're headed to the strip club. Gat's probably been there."
Playa - 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?"
Playa - Female 1: "And where's Johnny?"
Playa - Female 2: "Nevermind them, let's find Gat."
Playa - Female 3: "Not my problem right now."
Playa - Male 1: "Jimmy was probably wrong about them."
Playa - Male 2: "Don't know, don't care."
Playa - Male 3: "Maybe they've left."
Playa - Zombie: "Roars"
— "Arrive at Club"
Pierce: "You have any idea where to start?"
Playa - Female 1: "If Johnny's pissed, he'll want a gun. Try Friendly Fire."
Playa - Female 2: "If this is really Johnny I would guess he's heading to Friendly Fire."
Playa - Female 3: "With Johnny, he'll want a gun. Try Friendly Fire."
Playa - Male 1: "If it's really Johnny, he'll want a gun. We're heading to Friendly Fire."
Playa - Male 2: "Well, if I had to guess I'd say he'd hit up Friendly Fire."
Playa - Male 3: "Friendly Fire. If this is Johnny, he's gonna want a gun."
Playa - Zombie: "Snarls"
Pierce: "Everything this town has to offer and that would be his first thought?"
Playa - Female 1: "He's in a strange place and unarmed. Hell, it was my first thought here."
Playa - Female 2: "He has to arm himself, like we did when we arrived."
Playa - Female 3: "I needed a gun when I got here."
Playa - Male 1: "It was mine when I got here."
Playa - Male 2: "Johnny'd want to be ready to go after his enemies."
Playa - Male 3: "He's like me, always has to be prepared."
Playa - Zombie: "Growls"
Pierce: "Yeah, but you knew we had to take on the Syndicate. A clone of Gat ain't gonna know that."
Playa - Female 1: "His brain's scrambled. Sounded like he wants to make someone pay for Aisha's death."
Playa - Female 2: "And if he's reliving losing Aisha?"
Playa - Female 3: "Look, he's still pissed about Aisha, not looking to play craps."
Playa - Male 1: "You heard Jimmy, he still thinks he's out to avenge Aisha."
Playa - Male 2: "But if he's still pissed about Aisha, he may try avenging her."
Playa - Male 3: "From what Jimmy said, he's still carryin' on about Aisha's death. He'll wanna make someone pay."
Playa - 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..."
Playa - Female 1: "Right, we got it."
Playa - Female 2: "You should stay out of this, Jimmy."
Playa - Female 3: "Yeah, I can figure that one out too."
Playa - Male 1: "Just leave this to us, will ya kid."
Playa - Male 2: "We'll do the betting here, you just keep out of this."
Playa - Male 3: "Leave it to the professionals kid."
Playa - 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?"
Playa - Female 1: "I plan on asking them."
Playa - Female 2: "I plan on finding out."
Playa - Female 3: "Don't know, but how 'bout we ask?"
Playa - Male 1: "I don't know, but we better check it out."
Playa - Male 2: "Only one way to find out."
Playa - Male 3: "Let's ask."
Playa - 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..."
Playa - Female 1: "Just say it works and leave it at that."
Playa - Female 2: "I don't care for explanations, just results."
Playa - Female 3: "Did I ask? Just shut up and keep tracking Johnny."
Playa - Male 1: "Jimmy, I'm a little busy and I don't care how it works, just that it does."
Playa - Male 2: "If it works, great. I don't care about the details, Jimmy."
Playa - Male 3: "Do I really look like I care? Just keep tracking Gat."
Playa - Zombie: "Growls"
— "Explain Tracker"
Interrogation: "What the hell do you want?"
Playa - Female 1: "Wanna keep breathing you'll tell me what Morningstar was doing here."
Playa - Female 2: "Why was the Morningstar here? I suggest you start talking."
Playa - Female 3: "To start breaking things. Unless you tell me what Morningstar was doing here."
Playa - Male 1: "Tell me what Morningstar was doing here and I might let you live."
Playa - Male 2: "Why's Morningstar here? Start talking or I'll start breaking things."
Playa - Male 3: "What's the Morningstar doing here? Tell me and you might live."
Playa - 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"

Playa - Female 1: "What do you want, Jimmy? We're under attack here."
Playa - Female 2: "Now is not a good time, Jimmy."
Playa - Female 3: "Now's not the time, Jimmy."
Playa - Male 1: "I don't have time for this, Jimmy."
Playa - Male 2: "Can't this wait, Jimmy? I'm kinda busy."
Playa - Male 3: "Bad time, Jimmy."
Playa - 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."
Playa - Female 1: "Wait, don't... Well shit, now we're waiting here for the kid."
Playa - Female 2: "No, Jimmy, wait... Well, I guess we have to keep alive until he arrives now."
Playa - Female 3: "Oh no you... dammit! Jimmy's coming here, we have to hold out."
Playa - Male 1: "Jimmy? Shit... Guess we're holding out here until that kid shows up."
Playa - Male 2: "Hold on, what?... Great. We're waiting here for Jimmy it looks like."
Playa - Male 3: "Wait Jimmy! Damn kid. Guess we're holdin' out here for now."
Playa - 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"

Playa - Female 1: "What happened here? Where did he go?"
Playa - Female 2: "We are not leaving until you tell us what happened here."
Playa - Female 3: "Johnny Gat's dead. Now what happened here?"
Playa - Male 1: "Listen, you better start talking. What happened here?"
Playa - Male 2: "Tell. Me. What. Happened."
Playa - Male 3: "Listen, buttercup. I want details on what happened here, got it."
Playa - 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."
Playa - Female 1: "So we're just giving up?"
Playa - Female 2: "This did not end well."
Playa - Female 3: "I'm not giving up yet."
Playa - Male 1: "Well that was a waste of time."
Playa - Male 2: "So that was for nothing then..."
Playa - Male 3: "All that for nothing."
Playa - Zombie: "Sneers"
Jimmy: "Don't worry, I have a backup plan. Trust me."
— "Stop At Plane"
Playa - Female 1: "You had a helicopter just lying around?"
Playa - Female 2: "You have a helicopter...?"
Playa - Female 3: "So a helicopter, huh?"
Playa - Male 1: "How did YOU get a helicopter?"
Playa - Male 2: "You're telling me you had a helicopter lying around?"
Playa - Male 3: "A kid like you has a helicopter?"
Playa - Zombie: "Grumbles"
Jimmy: "I, Jimmy Torbitson, am a mastermind of science and technology."
Pierce: "So you stole it."
— "Surprise Heli"
Playa - Female 1: "You stole from the military?"
Playa - Female 2: "Let me guess, you just happened to have this in your garage."
Playa - Female 3: "You gonna tell me you built this too?"
Playa - Male 1: "Where the hell did you steal this thing?"
Playa - Male 2: "So where'd you steal this, kid?"
Playa - Male 3: "Steal military vehicles often?"
Playa - 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..."
Playa - Female 1: "I think I know what to do by now."
Playa - Female 2: "Clear it out? Of course I do."
Playa - Female 3: "Don't tell me... clear it out."
Playa - Male 1: "Yeah, yeah, I'm clearing it already."
Playa - Male 2: "Clear it out? I think I know that by now."
Playa - Male 3: "Lemme guess, clear it out..."
Playa - 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"
