[Another sigh. How is it he always gets himself into these serious discussions by accident.]
Well... hey, I ever told you about Scott's dad? He's a total douche, too, like, Grade A, his mom told him to leave because he was drunk so much, and he thinks my dad is totally incompetent and tried to get him fired and-- anyway, the point is, he sucks. But he also really loves Scott, which doesn't magically make all the sucking stuff go away, but it's still true.
So I guess what I'm trying to say is, your dad can be an ass but that doesn't mean he's never cared about you at all, or that you can't care about him at all, I mean, Scott started out telling him he wants nothing to do with him anymore, and I totally get it, but I think now they're on better terms and you know, that's okay, I guess, as long as he doesn't fuck up again and make my best friend miserable, because then I'll kick his damn ass, even if he's an FBI agent.
[BREATHES wow that was a long monologue. But he still looks entirely serious, so at least he meant everything he said.]
