The gentleman is always properly dressed

My conversations with Marty

I went to B & Pablo's place Saturday AM for to breakfast on pancakes. When I arrived, Pablo was playing a Ratchet & Clank demo, wreaking all sorts of havoc with a typically bizarre arsenal. As he sat there sniping away at some distant power-suited sprites, I thought to ask about the backstory.

Me: So, why are you killing all the dudes in this city?
Pablo: ...
Marty: It's just what you do! It's part of the game.
Me: But, what if you just wanted to go around making nice?
Marty: There is no making nice. There is only madness... and anger.
Me: ...
Me: Marty, you're just about the best kid ever.
