(Never Forget)
Maybe, if I save your life today, there's the expectation that you'll save my life tomorrow; that's probably the most coldbloodedly practical reason. But I don't think most people think that way.

Then again, if I save your life today, it's because I'm hoping that you'll be around tomorrow and I prefer the world with you in it rather than otherwise. Is that what you mean by 'trying to get something out of it?' If the world is simply more tolerable *with* that person, that friend, than it is without them? If the person is that valuable for their own sake? I guess that's sort of selfish, if the other person doesn't... ahh... *For no apparent reason, he turns bright red and continues speaking very, very quickly.* But I'm sure the other person does. Always. Really.
