"Tex Hex actually did something good today, Shaman. I don't understand why."
"Tex remembered, if only for a few moments, a time when he cared about love and friendship. You see, there can be good even in the worst people."
"I recon you've right, Shaman. Tex Hex'll be as mean a critter as ever tomorrow. But remember, he is only a character in a show. In the real world, if you look for the good in people, you just might find a new friend. Try it."
