Don't be smart with me, punk! You owe me. I took care of you... And a hell of a lot better than it looks like you're doin on your own!”
― Larry Little to Rocket[src]
One night, months after Rocket disappeared, Larry found Rocket back in town in a restaurant.
Larry was quick to let Rocket know how he owed the gang for just disappearing and messing up their gig. He also made sure to point out how he used to take care of Rocket, who was currently looking decrepitly weak.
But Rocket discredited all of Larry's claims. One of the gang members didn't take kindly to this and tried to hold Rocket in place but Rocket, in a flurry of quick moves, broke his arm, leapt up, and delivered a powerful kick to Larry. The force knocked Larry back to the wall, breaking his neck and killing him.
