I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.
Awww! Bruce wants to ditch Alfred for his own safety, but Alfred just pwned Bruce. He handed Bruce a list of things he might want to take from the manor if he had to leave in a hurry, and put himself first on the list. Just so he could make a point that he was staying when Bruce did this exact thing.
And I'm like Alfred is my favorite right now.
