Now that you know what to expect from the mission, let’s jump right into how you can complete it.
Go to Judy’s apartment
After receiving the call from Judy and starting the side job, you need to head over to Judy’s Apartment which is located in Watson. Make sure that you do that sometime between 5 PM or Midnight though, as it can only be accessed in that timeframe.

Discuss Judy’s Plan
You will have a discussion with them about the plan they are hatching, and they will ask for your help in the end. During the main discussion itself though, you are given a lot of choices – none of which matter – so you can choose any of them.

Should you help Judy or not?
Judy will ask for your help in the end and you will decide whether to do that or not. As per our recommendation, the best choice here would be to help her out by selecting the “You can count on me” option.
Choosing this option is necessary to get the next quest in this series – which also gives you an opportunity to romance Judy. However, note that only the female version of V can romance Judy. If you want to do that with the male version, you will need to tweak some game files.
If you choose not to help Judy though, you will end the quest and will subsequently lock the rest of the quests in the series – along with their rewards and the option to romance Judy.
However, you can always call Judy after that and tell her you would be happy to help to continue on with the rest of the quests.

Should you take the money or not?
Judy will also offer you some money for your help. You can choose to accept or decline it – the choice doesn’t matter.
