    • (Romy and company arrive)
      Bernard: Hazel! We've got lesbians!

    • Nathan: And Christian Hobbs, do you know what he does? He finds a boy, and if that boy is a bit quiet, if he's a bit different, Christian Hobbs kicks his head in. He kicks him and calls him queer. That boy there, he beats us up cos we're queer. Plenty more I could have said, Christian, and that's a favor.

    • Vince: Unrequited love. It's fantastic, 'cause it never has to change, it never has to grow up and it never has to die!

    • Vince: Sorry, it's breaking up... we're breaking up!

    • Alexander: He's here, he's queer, I'm buying him a beer!

  • Allusions

    • Doctor Who
      Vince's ultimate test in this episode is the ability to chronologically list all the actor playing the Doctor in cult series Doctor Who. Stuart of course suceeds (listing the first seven Doctors: William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy) and also says that Paul McGann (8th Doctor) doesn't count. Some fans doesn't want to count McGann's Doctor since he only starred in the movie (which had several inconsistencies compared to the tv series). Queer as Folk was made before creator Russel T Davies moved on to renewing Doctor Who, and the list therefore does not include the last two Doctors (Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant).

      However, both Stuart and Vince refer to the character as "Doctor Who", which is a common mistake. Doctor Who is just the name of the show, the main character himself is always referred to as The Doctor.
