Brotherhood's our rule that cannot bend.
We can conquer anything together.
All of us are bonded forever.
If you die, I die.
That's the way it is.
"We few, we happy few, we band of brothers.
For he today who sheds his blood with me shall be my brother.
Be he ne'er so vile, this day shall gentle his condition,
and gentlemen in England now abed shall think themselves acursed they were not here,
and hold their manhoods cheap whilst any speaks, that fought with us upon St. Crispin's day!" - Henry V
