What was that about, man?
Motherfucker sure can be mysterious sometimes. You like that about him though.
Eh, no worries. He’ll take care of the heavy stuff just fine, like always, and he’ll call on you when he needs you. Big man’s always got your back, and you got his.

TT: John. John, please.
GT: rose, it’ll be fine, i promise. really!
TT: I don’t like this. Please, John, will you just wait?
GT: look, i have to do this. jade and i both saw the cloud, so it’s going to happen no matter what anyway.
GT: might as well go right to it with a smile, you know?
GT: besides, how else am i going to save all these salamanders?
TT: You know how I feel about indulging these ridiculous consorts, John.
GT: aww, they’re not so bad. you should really give your turtles another chance.
TT: Likewise I have expressed my doubts as to the authenticity of predestination.
GT: i’m sorry, but i’ve got to go with dave on this one. we might not have total proof yet, but there’s enough evidence that i don’t want to bet against it.
GT: i mean, between the number of clouds jade’s seen come true and dave’s adventures through time, there a pretty good argument in predestination’s favor.
TT: I’ve told you my theories about the manipulation of so-called “alpha” timelines. If you would just wait a day or two, give me time to test them out, this whole situation might be avoidable!
GT: i don’t think i’ve got the time to spare. all signs point to it happening today.
GT: and hey, aren’t you the one who kept telling us to trust the guide like it was holy writ or something?
TT: My trust in the words of some eons-dead alien is somewhat trumped by the idea of watching my friends die, John!
GT: i’m not asking you to watch, rose.
TT: It doesn’t
TT: That’s not what I mean, John...
GT: rose. it’s going to be ok.
GT: even if you don’t trust time, or skaia, or what the horrorterrors have been telling you, trust in me.
GT: i know everything’s going to be fine. trust in that.
TT: Can I ask you something truly terrible and unfair?
GT: uh, i guess?
TT: When it’s my turn, will you be there?
GT: ...yeah. yeah, i’ll be there. i’ll be there when you need me; don’t doubt it for a moment.
