Bob is in love with Amanda. Amanda, however, has a gambling problem. In order to pay her overdue mortgage and keep her house, she has just stolen the payroll from the safe of the small business in which she works. Amanda needs an alibi and Bob agrees to lie to the police to provide her with one. He thinks it would be morally wrong, but he thinks he must do it nonetheless. He thinks that lying for Amanda would be foolish and likely to land him in jail, yet he thinks that he must do it anyway. He thinks he shouldn’t, but he also thinks that he must; he feels obligated by love.
