Friends sometimes turn out to be fakes and will betray you just for fun, or greed, or to save their own skin. Real friends will stay loyal no matter what, but it can take time to find them.
When Rocket, Jules, and Doogs end up in jail together - what, if anything, do they learn about true friendship? How much time does it take?
