Gonzalez: [about quitting the force] I've been doing a lot of thinking about it. I have a teaching credential and I figure, what for, you know?
...
Gonzalez's wife: I thought I could take it...Whatever it takes to be a cop's wife, I'm just not sure I'm making it. He really tries and these bastards, you know, Pig this, Pig that. Ah, but maybe it's when I watch him walk out that door at night, and I think, what if this is the last time I ever see him again...doesn't it drive your wife crazy?
Callahan: Nope.
Gonzalez's wife: You mean she got used to it.
Callahan: No, she never did really.
Gonzalez's wife: Well, what then?
Callahan: She's dead.
Gonzalez's wife: Oh, please forgive me.
Callahan: She was driving home late one night and a drunk crossed the center line. There was no reason for it really.
Gonzalez's wife: I'm so sorry.
Callahan: That's o.k. Look, I want you to tell Chico that I understand, you know, him quitting. I-I think he's right. This is no life for you two.
Gonzalez's wife: Why do you stay in it then?
Callahan: I don't know, I really don't.
