of course ****** and her clumsy self have to kill everyone. And McCain also looks badass. Paulo might score points in the “i’ll protect the girl from falling” category, but McCain owns the “i dont give a ****” area

Of course ****** would be the final kick in the *** that would have them go over the cliff.

David is hilarious. He’s just like “I’m falling. Whatever.”

What’s up with McCain? Could he be more emotionless?

Hold on to her, Paulo. Hold on and never let go.
