My favorite part about Archer may be that, even though he's a narcissistic, alcoholic, uber douche - he's an undeniable badass. Sure, he blows off every bit of training, protocol and general responsibility, but when it comes killin' time - Archer's a boss.
How great was him getting out of the locker, strapping Lana to his back and just blowin' the hell out of space pirates?
It's just perfect.
