The Good Husband is an optional mission in Grand Theft Auto V given to Michael by his wife Amanda via phone.


Michael gets a phone call from Amanda saying she had been arrested over an altercation at Didier Sachs, and needs rescuing. The player decides whether to help her or not.

If he chooses to help her, he will find Amanda locked in the back seat of a Police Cruiser parked outside the shop. A police officer will be standing nearby talking to another person (presumably an owner or employee of the store). Michael must steal the Cruiser and evade the cops. The couple will return to their mansion where Amanda thanks Michael for helping her and the mission ends.

  • Amanda De Santa - "I realize it's been a bad run recently what with the misunderstanding with the tennis coach and now the misunderstanding with the shoplifting but if there was ever a man who didn't have the right to judge? Try to focus more not on what i am doing but WHY i am doing it."


  • If the player gets closer to the police car and waits, they can hear a conversation between the cop and the shop detective. The detective will say that in the shop he deals with a lot of people that bite, tweak and scratch and that he even wrote a romance about this.
  • When Michael takes the handcuffs off Amanda, he will mention that he remembers Amanda doing "the old girl cop routine." Stating that one of Amanda's stripping routines, when she was a stripper, was dressing up in a police outfit. 
  • While Michael and Amanda are going back to the mansion, Amanda says that she has a habit of stealing things, hinting that she may be a kleptomaniac.
  • The mission title is a play of the CBS series "The Good Wife".
  • If Michael doesn't help Amanda, she'll say that he's gonna pay for the lawyers fees. Michael then loses money and he'll get a text from Amanda reading that she's mad at him and she took money from Michael's account to pay the fees.
  • For some strange reason, the police car has a misplaced light-bar. The lights retains its place, but the cover is placed above them.
  • In an earlier screenshot, Amanda can be seen wearing her tennis outfit.
  • If Michael turns on the sirens Amanda will say phrases such as "Real inconspicous!", or "Turn that off! You're not a child.", or "I married a man-child!". She will continually say these if he turns them off and turns them back on again.
