- Gonta: What would others think?
- Kokichi: Okay, that’s an interesting thought, but hear me out: what if... we ran an experiment and spent the rest of our lives finding out what happened if we never told them?
man I don't think you can really say bro is brainwashed but gamzee's just evil when you can argue that gamzee's also possessed by cal. they even have really similar relationships to how he's formed, ie part of their souls exist inside lil cal already. which is probably a good explanation for how lil cal is able to brainwash them when he doesn't brainwash, like, dave, who is around him his whole childhood. idk, I just think gamzee's more complicated than "evil ass hole"
