Isn't that how all Gunmen work? - It combined?! - Dumbass! That ain't combining! Proper combining is all about Bro! If we don't do something, we're history! Damn it, Simon!

Manly combining isn't like some tawdry love affiar where you come and go as you please! That isn't a true bond! That's just a sham, a pale imitation of the real thing!
