The boys

Proper preparation and planning

I en värld där det går 13 på dussinet bland superhjältar är Starlight (Erin Moriarty) en av de nya i gruppen The Seven. En annan som är ny är Stormfront (Aya Cash) som har en mycket uppstudsigare attityd än vad Starlight har och det vill hon påpeka under ett samtal, ett samtal som leder in på vilken superhjälte som Starlight tycker är bäst. Hon svarar ledaren i gruppen The Seven, Homelander, men Stormfront rättar henne.

Stormfront: "Okay. Who's the greatest superhero of all time?"
Starlight: "Hmm, Homelander?"
Stormfront: "No. Pippi Longstocking. Pippi Longstocking. She's a nine-year-old girl. Lived in a house all by herself. Pet monkey. Could lift a horse with one hand. You... you haven't read Pippi Longstocking?"
Starlight: "I guess not."
Stormfront: "Hmm. Okay, well, uh, I used to dress as her every Halloween, and all the girls dressed like Disney sluts would make fun of me, and you know what I thought? I thought, 'Who fucking cares'? Pippi didn't care. She never cared about being polite. Or cute. Look. Fuck this world for confusing nice with good. Be a bitch if you want. Be whatever. Just drop the mask once in a while. Feels good. You can finally breathe. Oh, and if someone sticks a dick in your mouth, bite it off. Pippi Longstocking would bite a 'D'. That's for damn sure."
