Charlie is assigned to make the much needed coffee run and while doing so meets and falls in love with the waitress. He begins to think about her constantly but has guilt feelings because he is married. At first he does not tell his lieutenant but begins an affair with the waitress which begins to consume him mentally with his burden of guilt.

While driving the lieutenant he asks the lieutenant to tell him some stories of when and how the lieutenant became a police officer years before.
