-> ''What have we learnt from VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV? Number one, be prepared. In context this means carrying around several metric sh*t tons of weaponry in your trouser pockets. But, we can't recommend going around in life as tooled up as a branch of B&Q. Your trousers'll fall down.''

->"Let me fill you in on the weapons status. I am unarmed. But Butler here, my ... ah ... butler, has a Sig Sauer in his shoulder holster, two shrike throwing knives in his boots, a derringer two-shot up his sleeve, garrotte wire in his watch, and three stun grenades concealed in various pockets. Anything else, Butler?"
->"The cosh, sir."
->"Oh, yes. A good old ball-bearing cosh stuffed down his shirt."

-> '''Otacon:''' "That blade in his hand is called the Master Sword, also known as the "Blade of Evil's Bane". He also has a whole arsenal of items at his disposal-- bombs and arrows, a shield, a boomerang and a Clawshot. He's a force to be reckoned with."
->'''Snake:''' "Gear is only useful when it's used at the right time and place. Just lugging a ton of it around doesn't do you any good."

-> The only other thing he notices about them, before he gives up and slinks back into the cargo hold, is that they are fucking armed to the teeth. Like they were expecting to have to kill twenty or thirty people on their way from the airplane to the latrine and back. Bobby Shaftoe has met a few of these paranoid types during his tour, and he doesn't like them very much. That whole mindset reminds him too much of Guadalcanal.
-> He finds a place on the floor next to the body of PFC Gerald Hott and stretches out. The teeny revolver in his waistband makes it impossible for him to lie on his back, so he takes it out and pockets it. This only transfers the center of discomfort to the Marine Raider stiletto holstered invisibly between his shoulder blades. He realizes that he is going to have to curl up on his side, which doesn't work because on one side he has a standard-issue Colt semiautomatic, which he doesn't trust, and on the other, his own six-shooter from home, which he does. So he has to find places to stash those, along with the various ammo clips, speed loaders, and maintenance supplies that go with them. The V-44 "Gung Ho" jungle-clearing, coconut-splitting, and Nip-decapitating knife, strapped to the outside of his lower leg, also has to be removed, as does the derringer that he keeps on the other leg for balance. The only thing that stays with him are the grenades in his front pockets, since he doesn't plan to lie down on his stomach.
