so i was just thinking about the bonding moment™ and
right before keith joins the conversation, they are all telling lance what the other did for him, which of course leads to him thanking everyone, like the ray of sunshine he is, saying “wow. thanks, everybody” but is quickly followed by “sounds like the mice did more than you, though” obviously directed to keith
imo it sounds like a dare
like what if lance wanted to hear from keith what he did for him as well?
and that’s why he tries to rile him up later like he didn’t do much, because he knows, and does remember mind you, keith did more than just that, “i punched sendak!" “yeah, apparently after i emerged from a coma and shot his arm off”
“we had a bonding moment. i cradled you in my arms!” ah, there it is
