Nick, how in the hell can you claim you're not romantic after some of the things you've said about being with Kelly and to Kelly (there's no other option for me. it's just you.)? I mean, seriously. You are one amazingly romantic bastard. Back me up here, Kelly.
Kelly: I will gladly back you up.
Nick: I suck at romantic gestures. I never get them right.
Hi Nick, if - I said if because we know that no one wants Ty gets killed - Ty is a surgery room and there a very low chance that he will survive, would you regreat be so... intransigente about not forgive him?
Nick: I’m sorry, I get the general meaning of the question, but what does intransigente mean?
Zane: Umm, sort of like stubborn and uncompromising.
Nick: Okay. Well, obviously I’d be upset if Ty were dying. Obviously. Anyone who wants to try to say I wouldn’t be can meet me out back and we’ll discuss it. I know people think I’m mad at him, that I’m being stubborn. But my issues are mine, and that’s all I’m going to say on the matter.
Preston & Julian: You guys were partners in crime (so to speak) for a long while. Have you seen each other since Preston bit the metaphorical bullet for Julian? Does Preston know Julian got married? Do you miss each other?
Julian: We spoke when Cam was missing, before I went to Boston. As I mentioned to O’Flaherty. Preston made certain the CIA wasn’t involved for me.
Ty, do you think the fact that you’ve lost the first ring and had to get the second ring cut-off is your subconscious trying to tell you something? Like maybe you have commitment issues or maybe you don’t want to marry Zane?
Ty: Yeah, totally. My inability to keep a piece of metal securely on my finger day in and day out while working with tools and machinery is totally my mind telling me I don’t want to marry the love of my life. Makes perfect sense.
Hagan, are you getting a new partner or have you considered retiring too?
Hagan: I’m not retiring any time soon. If Nick really does go through with it, then yeah I’ll get a new partner. I hope to God he doesn’t, though. He’s the best friend and partner I’ve ever had, doing this job without him will just be … well, it’ll be harder, that’s for sure.
Kelly, do you miss girly bits enough to maybe have a threesome with Nick? Or do you guys prefer to stay monogamous?
Kelly: Here’s the thing. I think a threesome and monogamy are both things that could happen simultaneously. I know others see those issues differently, but I think if Nick and I sat down and talked about it, agreed on ground rules, and then followed those rules, a threesome wouldn’t be anything but another aspect to our relationship, and it certainly wouldn’t be cheating.
Do I want to try that? Not right now, no. You see, we did that years ago. Did it a couple times, actually, and it was good then. Can I see us doing it again in the future? I honestly don’t know. Now, if I started missing fucking women to the point that I wanted to step out on Nick, then the relationship would need to end. I’d never cheat on him. I’d end it before I cheated, that much I know for certain.
Ty: I don’t know! Is that normal? Is this normal? I don’t get nervous about things, man, I never have. Big games in high school, gunfights in the Marines, being dropped out of airplanes, realizing we were in that whore house in Hong Kong when we were supposed to be at a diplomat’s house, singing the fucking National Anthem at Camden Yards when they were honoring the USMC … I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT BEING NERVOUS FEELS LIKE!
Nick: Are you a little light-headed?
Nick: And every time you think about getting married you feel the need to stand up and pace to get rid of the feeling in your stomach, and possibly throw up?
Ty: Yes, but that could just be me getting sick, right?
Nick: No, Ty.
Ty: Is that what being nervous feels like?!
Nick: Yeah, Ty. You’ll be fine.
Ty: Well, I don’t like it!
Kelly: Only way to fix it is go get a hug from your fiance, dude.
Zane - you asked Ty in NOLA what the good things were about his time undercover there, because no one ever asks to remember the good things. Were there any good things for you in Miami that you remember?
Zane: Not many, no. There were a few people that I enjoyed, and no I don’t mean sexually this time. There were a few places that felt like they could have been home in another life. But other than that, I don’t have any love for Miami.
Zane+TS: If you guys could fast forward in time to certain point in life what, or rather when, would you choose?
Zane: Fast forward, meaning we’d still see and experience everything we’re forwarding through and we’re just going faster? Or would we fast forward to a point and miss the stuff we skipped? Because looking down the barrel of a future with Ty, I don’t want to skip anything.
Ty: Wow, Zane. That was actually both really romantic and borderline insulting all in one sentence.
Kelly - nick is madly in love with you so why do you think he has issues marrying you still?
Kelly: I don’t think he has issues marrying me. Well, not me in particular. Nick’s always had issues with marriage in general. And as long as I can say with all sincerity that he’s madly in love with me, and I with him, what’s the problem?
Sidewinder and Zane, how many times have you been in love? And not the with your dick love. The this is the one I want to spend the rest of my life with can't live without love?
Ty: Just the once.
Owen: That’s kind of an odd question, right? Because in hindsight I can say never. But the number of times I thought I was in love are numerous.
Digger: Yeah, hindsight I can say just once, and I fucked it up big.
Owen: And if I look at Riley right now, I can say once, but what if I’m just smitten and in a year it’s a ‘never’ answer again?
Nick: And cue Johns panicking about his girlfriend in three … two …
Owen: I AM NOT PANICKING THESE ARE VALID CONCERNS. HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOU’RE IN LOVE?! YOU CAN’T!
Kelly: I’m with Owen on this one, there’re two answers. I want to say just once, and point to Nick and say that’s it. This is it. But if I look at my life and consider what I thought at the time, I’d have to say I’ve been in love dozens of times.
Nick: I can say just once and mean it with everything I am.
Zane & Kelly~ please, for the love of holy fuck, when are you two going to lock Ty and Nick in a room together and make unfuck their shit? I mean, hell, Nick, Ty's getting married, for fuck's sake. Do you really think he wants to to that without you right next to him?... Not that I have any particularly strong feelings on the subject. Just asking.
Kelly: I’m really not sure forcing them together to work things out is going to work.
Digger: We just need to get them talking again. Once they start, they realize they’re being idiots and it smooths over.
Zane: How’d it work out the last time they stopped talking? What made them start again?
Kelly: Ty got in a jam and needed help. Nick was the closest.
Owen: Ty’s life is a perpetual jam, though, that won’t work this time.
Ty: You realize we’re sitting right here.
Nick: How about minding your own goddamn business and giving me time to work through some shit that has nothing to do with Ty and everything to do with me instead of sticking your nose in?
Ty: Are you talking to me?
Digger: Ain’t that the problem to start with?
Ty: That’s not funny, man.
Nick: I’d have to have a gun to my head to miss Ty’s wedding, understand?
Damn, I missed you guys. It was not a holiday here in Brazil and I had the worst day at work. You guys have any tips on how to make spoiled brats who think the teacher is there for fun disappear forever? Without getting caught, of course...
Nick: Field trip.
Ty: Nick, no.
Nick: “I’m not your daddy, I don’t get paid enough for this, and I don’t care if you make it home alive.”
This question is for the Sidewinder Team... If you lived during the "Robin Hood" times, would you be members of Robin's Merry Band or one of the Sheriff's Guard? I just spent the day at a ocal Renaissance Faire and I could picture certain of you in either group!
Digger: I think I’d be screwed …
Owen: No, didn’t you see the movie? You’d be Morgan Freeman.
Kelly: Can I be Robin Hood?
Ty: Was this before or after the Plague? I don’t want the Plague.
Anyone: I have a couple of scars on my ankle from when I broke it and had surgeries to put it back together. One of them is pretty short, but it's really dark. The other is comparatively light, but it goes about halfway up the outside of my calf. I'm really self-conscious about them, and try to cover them up, but I've been thinking about maybe getting tattoos to cover them up instead. It's right along the bone and tendon of my inner and outer ankle, so I'm told it'll REALLY hurt. Any advice?
Ty: Tattooing scars is tricky. One, it will hurt, because that scar tissue is going to be tough and tender to the touch. The spot won’t be too bad to ink, I don’t think, unless your artist follows the actual tendon, in which case……dude, naw.
Nick: My advice? Don’t cover those scars up. It’s okay to be self-conscious, but scars aren’t ugly, and they’re not a defect. Those are evidence of how fucking strong you are, how something hit you hard and tried to take you down, but you’re still up and walking around. You should hold your head high, wear sandals and shorts to show those fuckers off, and be a badass motherfucker who’s proud to be carrying those battle scars around with you.
Kelly, why do you think Nick needs a service dog? Vision or some other physical disability or is this for his PTSD and nightmares?
Kelly: The latter. He’s handling it, but that’s no way to live. I don’t know if a service animal would help him, but I think he’d feel like someone’s got his back during the time he’s alone. I think we all need to feel like that.
Sidewinder and Zane, if you could or had the opportunity, would you like to live in another country? Because of the weather, the culture or... ?
Zane: I prefer visiting other countries and coming back home.
Ty: I’ve been to six of the seven continents. I’ve been to more countries than most people ever have the opportunity to visit. I loved aspects of almost everywhere I went, but the States are home. I wouldn’t move.
Nick: I’d live in Ireland in a fucking heartbeat.
Kelly: The culture and legacy of the southwest is something I embraced at an early age. Hence the six-shooter on my hip that I got when I was 18. I’m not sure anywhere else would ever feel right long-term. Hell, even Boston feels a little foreign.
Zane, isn't it a little hypocritical to get after Nick and Kelly about sex in a club after what you and Ty did in the storeroom of the bar in Texas? At least their sister probably didn't catch them walking out.
Nick: Wait wait, in a storeroom?!
Digger: You dirty.
Kelly: And Zane can’t even say he was drunk.
Zane: Go ahead, I am not ashamed to be caught fucking my incredibly hot boyfriend against a storeroom door.
Kelly: At least Nick and I were sloshed when we went at it, though! And sweaty and all … hard muscles in damp shirts and smelling good … gah!
