    There may be a few ways this can be done, but I unlocked this achievement by doing the following:

    During Year 2, head to the cat racing track and go all the way to the top of several flights of stairs until you reach Carla. Drink some of the gold flake alcohol (can be found on the bar of your casino), and pass through the metal detector. This will prompt the alarm to sound and Carla will take you into a back room and begin to tell you her life story. You don’t need to respond to her ranting until she begins to get upset, so keep listening to her until she starts to cry, and a speech option saying ”Let me hold that metal detector for you while you cry” will appear. Selecting this option unlocked the achievement.

    AmethystineGiven that ”Let me hold that metal detector for you while you cry” is more or less the name of the achievement, then yes, I'd say that's what you're waiting for, yes.

    Dystopia95I mean, all the achievements are quotes from the game, but that doesn’t tell you how to get them laugh There are several times you can ask for the metal detector before this option comes up, which would miss the achievement.

    XiRe x HarveyIt might be worth mentioning that you don't actually get to hold the metal detector, and you get the achievement after the conversation ends. I thought I had done it wrong. And it's actually "Here, let me hold that metal detector for you while you cry."
