    • Lt. Ryker: Danko. (walks over to Danko) Mike, if you were a guy with a regular job, you'd go up to Borden, punch him in the nose, we'd charge you with battery. First offense, you'd probably get off with probation. Then maybe, just maybe, Borden would leave your wife alone. But you don't have a regular job. You are a professional law enforcement officer; you start to forget that, you'll be off the force.
      Danko: Maybe I could do her a little more good if I was off the force. Tell me, Lieutenant, where does a cop go when he needs help, huh? What does he do?
      Lt. Ryker: You just tough it out. Tell your wife you love her, take her out to dinner tonight.
      Danko: That's not gonna cure anything.
      Lt. Ryker: Fear is not something you cure, Danko. It's something you learn to live with. Take the girl out to dinner.
      Danko: Is that an order?
      Lt. Ryker: No, but I can make it one. (smiles)
      Danko: Right.
