Back out of his apartment, two thugs will go upstairs. Follow them upstairs, then drop your clipboard. Go through the nearest door on the right. Don't mention either Hollywood or Buyer 2, but offer to pay $30 to enter the club and you will be allowed inside.

Now quickly go through the right door. Look in the cupboard and take the camera, then look in the drawer and take the video tapes. Wait here and you will be caught - talk to the guys until you are knocked out.

After you wake up and your captors leave, wait until Rita joins you. Talk to her until she starts asking questions, then give her absolutely no information. You will soon be joined by Mickey - make sure you let Rita go, then talk to him about anything. Listen at the door on the left.
