Mat: What did you do to your hand, by the way?
Rand: What did you do to your eye?
Mat: A little accident with a corkscrew and thirteen angry innkeepers. The hand?
Rand: Lost it capturing one of the Forsaken.
Mat: Capturing? You're growing soft.
Rand: Tell me you've done better.
Mat: I killed a gholam.
Rand: I freed Illian from Sammael.
Mat: I married the Empress of the Seanchan.
Rand: Mat, are you really trying to get into a bragging contest with the Dragon Reborn? Besides, I cleansed saidin. I win.
