Bentley: I hope you realize that by saving Carmelita we're only making our operation more difficult.
Sly: Maybe so, but what's the fun in stealing if there's nobody trying to catch you? Besides, she's helped us out in the past.
Bentley: That, and you've got a thing for her.
— After saving Carmelita[src]

"Canal Chase" was a job for Bentley in An Opera of Fear of Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves.

Background Edit

Sly and Bentley must save Carmelita from Octavio's goons.


Bentley finds out that Don Octavio has hired the Blue Viper Gondola Gang to dispose of Inspector Carmelita Fox, who is on her daily patrol. Sly meets up with Bentley while he hotwires a police gondola. He takes the turret, while Sly drives.

The canal Bentley and Sly are chasing the Vipers in is packed with other boats and obstacles, so they'll need to jump when necessary. After defeating the three Vipers, Carmelita is safe. She returns to the police station, claiming it was another uneventful patrol.

Once Sly and Bentley return, Bentley warns Sly that by saving Carmelita, they are only making their operation more difficult. Sly agrees, but reminds him that she's been a help to them before,[1] and admits he has a thing for her. Sly goes and stashes the police boat somewhere, as it might come in handy for later.
