And Kim later ropes Jimmy into conning a man who was trying to hit on her at a bar (this while under stress from work at HHM).

Two lovers who team up to commit crime, usually violent crime and especially robbery, and are usually on the run from the law. Such couples are almost always inspired by [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bonnie_and_Clyde Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow]], "Bonnie & Clyde." Which one is the brains of the outfit tends to vary from couple to couple. Sometimes one is a calm and collected criminal who charms the other into a life of crime. Other times, one is a loose cannon while the other is a calm and cool professional. Many Bonnie and Clyde stories end in tragedy, as did the original couple.

** It's also worth noting that prior to the above mentioned CurbStompBattle, the gang were such [[CombatPragmatist Combat Pragmatists]] that ran circles around the pitiful small-town cops for using not one, but ''two'' {{Game Breaker}}s: they stole [[MoreDakka Browning Automatic Rifles]] ([[FunWithAcronyms BARs for short]]), WorldWarOne holdovers with the barrels filed down for use in cars, and they had a habit of using only cars with [[SuperSpeed V8 engines in them that only required a five minute headstart to only be a memory]], compared to local police that had to [[AdamSmithHatesYourGuts buy their own handguns]] and drove equally simple cars; it was like pitting [[TheAndyGriffithShow Andy Griffith]] against Rambo, plus some JurisdictionFriction for good measure. Given the [[MorallyBankruptBanker nature of the banks,]] they were initially considered to be rebels dealing out LaserGuidedKarma to [[AssholeVictim Asshole Victims]] until the cop-killing ruined that image, and they ''had'' to be ambushed by the posse because they were otherwise too much of a collective LightningBruiser to be taken down like any previous criminals.
