Don't touch me. I don't expect you to understand, Brent. How could you? You're like starch. You're like starch but Res is... Res is adrenaline. So don?t talk to me about old people. I already know the jokes. I've seen the sit-coms. Res is like a Greek legend compared to you. He makes those crazy stories seem possible. The Trojan War, Hades, the Titans... I could picture Res there, in the middle of it, swinging his sword. But you... you I picture in subway advertising, removing bunions. You fit right in, the kind of domesticated man Earth wants these days. Always struggling with an umbrella or car keys. I don't know, Brent. I just need bigger battles than those with our objects of convenience. I don't want to fight the toaster anymore. I can't believe I ever found it a worthy opponent. I think I've been duped. My life isn't supposed to be this small.
