The Wife is the spouse of the Man in Time Piece. Although the man is clearly the protagonist, the wife is the most important secondary character, with significant screentime in multiple sequences (both quick-shots and longer scenes), and the only other part to be identified, and the performer credited, in the closing titles.

The wife is generally a blank-faced figure of domesticity, content to wait for her husband and rock gently; this persona is occasionally tweaked. She is first seen as the man swings, Tarzan-style, homeward, cutting the vine, in a comic symbol of castration.

Like the man, but to a lesser extent, the wife's clothes and persona change throughout the short. After chastely kissing her husband and preparing dinner, the pair then shift through different period garbs. Later, as the man gazes at the stripper, footage of the wife is intercut, as she unromantically and drably drops her garments, which include a pad-lock covered corset-device.

Evidently an art lover, the wife has a copy of Whistler's Mother in the home, and during the nightclub scene, she appears as Whistler's Mother, rocking back and forth and gazing with a hint of reproach. Later, while the man takes brush to wildlife, the wife creates a rapid reproduction of Mona Lisa. In her final appearance in the film, as the airborne man is overcome by pursuers, she shoots off a fire extinguisher, releasing a phallic stream of foam and smoke, and utterly failing to put out any conflagration.

The Wife
Game: Grand Theft Auto III
For: Marty Chonks
Location: Trenton, Portland Island, Liberty City
Target: Mrs. Chonks
Conditions of mission failure: Player death
Death of Mrs. Chonks
Reward: $2,000

The Wife is a mission in Grand Theft Auto III given to protagonist Claude by Bitch'n' Dog Food Factory owner Marty Chonks from a public telephone outside the factory in Trenton, Portland Island, Liberty City.



Marty Chonks continues in his money problems, and tells Claude that his wife has an insurance policy that he wants to claim. This would also stop his wife from spending vast amounts of money that he doesn't have.

Claude goes inside the factory premises to get an Esperanto and drives over to Classic Nails in the Red Light District, where he picks up Mrs. Chonks. He drives her back to the Bitch'n' Dog Food Factory, where she is killed by Marty and turned into dog food. Marty tells Claude to dump the car into the waters near Portland Beach and Saint Mark's in order to get rid of any evidence, which Claude does.


Marty Chonks: The business is going to under unless I get hold of some serious cash soon. My wife has an insurance policy and all she's ever been to me is a hole in my pocket. I've left a car in the usual place. Go and pick up my wife from Classic Nails and bring her back to the factory.

(Claude drives to Classic Nails to pick up Mrs. Chonks).

Mrs. Chonks: Marty wants to see me? Well it better be quick because I have to get my hair done.

(Claude drives Mrs. Chonks to the Bitchin' Dog Food Factory, which she enters.)

Mrs. Chonks: Hey... stop!


The reward for this mission is $2,000. The mission Her Lover is unlocked.
