  • TRIVIA (2)

    • While Yuri is in the convenience store looking at porn magazines, a radio program can be heard in the background; the station is CFMI, Classic Rock 101, a Vancouver station. The afternoon "Dean & Hatch Show" is on, where the game being played is 'Band or Bogus?'

    • While in the convenience store, Yuri looks at the cover of a gay porn magazine. The magazine in question is Mandate, March 2005 issue. Beside it is the March 2006 issue of FHM, a straight porn magazine; at the beginning of the episode, Yuri is looking at the July 2006 issue of FHM.

  • QUOTES (9)

    • (seeing someone bent over in the back of a moving van)
      Yuri: Can I give you a hand?
      Andrew (turning around): Oh, yeah! (Yuri jumps back) What?
      Yuri: You scared me a little bit.
      Andrew: Excuse me?
      Yuri: I... uh...
      Andrew: ...wanted to give me a hand.
      Yuri: No.
      Andrew: You just asked me.

    • Stanley: Oh my god, look at this espresso machine!
      Andrew: Yeah, I'd offer you guys a cup, but Chris is the only one who knows how to hook it all up.
      Geoff: Chris?
      Andrew: Yeah, my partner.

    • Geoff: Yeah, it'll be nice having another gay couple in the building.
      Stanley: Oh, I don't know... whenever too many of us get together in the same place, everything gets fabulous and rents go up.

    • Andrew: I'm just going out of my mind, trying to unpack all this stuff.
      (he begins rummaging around in a box, his back to Geoff)
      Geoff: When are you expecting him back?
      Andrew (turning): What's that?
      Geoff: When's Chris getting back?

    • Geoff: I don't know what I was expecting. What the hell does a stage manager look like?
      Stanley: Glasses wouldn't be out of place.

    • (in the store, Andrew walks in)
      Sault: Hello, breakfast!
      Geoff: Oh, my god.
      Sault: Hands off, I saw him first.
      Geoff: It's him.
      Sault: Who him? I thought you said he was gay?
      Geoff: He is.
      Sault: No, he's not. My gaydar's infallible.
      Geoff: Oh, please don't say that.
      Sault: Are you offended?
      Geoff: No, just embarrassed.
      Sault: Well, I knew you were gay the first minute I saw you.
      Geoff: Yeah, so would a blind man.

    • Chris: Do you know what the schools are like nearby?
      Geoff: Schools? They're awful. You try to get anywhere at 8 in the morning or 3 in the afternoon, it's just traffic.
      Stanley: Chris wants to know if they're good schools.
      Geoff (confused): You do?
      Stanley: For babies, darling.

    • Stanley: What the hell were you thinking? You can't drag someone out of the closet!
      Geoff: I know.
      Stanley: Especially if you don't even know if they're in one!

    • Geoff: I don't think a person should waste their life living a lie.
      Andrew: Oh. Oh, that's rich. That's rich, coming from you.
      Geoff: Well, I accept myself for who I am.
      Andrew: Oh, what is that, exactly? Some kept guy who goes around seducing strange men from time to time?

  • NOTES (2)


    • Stanley: Love your haircut, Andrew.
      Andrew: Thanks.
      Stanley: Very Tom Cruise. And the way you dress...
      Geoff: Don't... don't pay any attention to him.
      Stanley: Like a young Kevin Spacey.
      Chris: Oh, I agree with Stanley. I think Drew has a true movie star quality to him.
      Stanley: He does... like Rock Hudson.
      (later on, to Chris and Andrew...)
      Stanley: And what was the production you were working on? Cat On A Hot Tin Roof?

      Cat On A Hot Tin Roof is a play by Tennessee Williams, and won a Tony Award in 1955. It deals with the major theme of telling lies, with one specific plot line being that Brick has homo-erotic feelings for his recently deceased male friend, Skipper. These feelings were repressed, and are never openly spoken of in the play.

      Tom Cruise is widely rumoured to be a closet homosexual, as is Kevin Spacey; neither man has publically confirmed this, and Tom Cruise is married (three times) and has a child.

      Rock Hudson was a popular movie and tv star who stayed in the closet his entire life. It was only after his death that it was confirmed that he was gay.
