      "But from the ashes sprouted a powerful friendship. And in time, V found that they could almost tolerate them, much like a fat man tolerates the tapeworms in his intestines. And like those tapeworms, that engram burrowed deep into his innards and gorged themselves on his leftovers, until they began causing abdominal pain and diarrhoea. I realize the metaphor's breaking down a bit here, but Granny Dapper didn't raise no quitters."
