Matthew: There’s no way Gil is actually that full of himself.

Francis: Ah, see, that’s what I thought too. And I get a lot of people who ask me that same thing. But Gilbert isn’t hiding any insecurities.He’s solid confidence all the way through. I’ve been his closest friend for over 10 years now, and what you see is the truth: the only thing he’s hiding under that mask of ego… is a much larger ego.

Matthew: Wow.

Francis: Truly.
