This is exactly, and I mean exactly, what friends are for. Being there for your buddy after he gets dumped by his girlfriend is cool. Being there for him after if he gets cut from the football team freshman year of high school (may or may not have been me) is rad. But instantly putting your life on the line on Rebirth Island after you watch your friend get viciously beat down in front of you? Now THAT'S a friend.
I love you, Honk. Now and forever. I don't even think the play was that bad.
