Not as exciting as medical school, But exciting nonetheless.
- Okay, let's get started.
You all know why you're here.
You've seen his story on the news, On twitter feeds, on your facebook walls.
His is a tale of a lifetime in the closet, Of a brave midlife embrace of his true nature And an acknowledgement that he is a lightning rod For a vital civil rights issue.
Ladies and gentlemen, frank gallagher.
Frank? Um We're at a-- we are at a crucial time In our nation's history, Where, as a nation, we'll either pivot toward what's right Or, umStay stuck in what's wrong, And make no mistake, right now, it's a horrible time to be gay.
And I, like all of you, have experienced it firsthand.
Apparently, I've caused a ruckus Because I said that gay folks deserve certain civil rights-- Rights that the breeders don't want to bestow upon me.
ha ha ha.
Upon we.
Those breeders, all they wanna do is stop us From having the sex that they wish they were having.
IfIf-- If the kind of sex we're having is what offends them most, They should let us get married, 'cause anybody who's been married Knows that the sex is downhill from there.
Now, we have long-- thank you.
We have long been wronged, And it's time for legislation That allows our private parts to be aroused By the people god intended to arouse them.
And-- And it's time for that arousal to happen within marriage! So get out your wallets or your-- your man purses Or whatever, and give now, 'cause I hope never to be up again this early, Unless it's rolling over with a couple of you in bed.
Thank you.
I love you.
- Shit, you're good! How did you get so good? - My whole life, I've been trying to convince people To do what they really don't want to do.
the-- the envelope, kind sir? Thank you, thank you.
Now, we gotta talk about upgrading my room.
- Uh, you can tip the front desk With some of my recently departed hard-earned cash.
- The front desk at the merchant motor inn Is behind bulletproof glass.
It's plexiglass.
You have a queen bed and premium channels.
- You saw what I did here.
I'm your new rainmaker.
I can get these rump-swappers to cough up cash night and day.
"rump-swappers"? There's a slur I've never heard before.
Okay, we'll see how the high school speech goes, But until then, you're still on the clock, So go shake some hands, ya little rump-swapper.
You saucy tart, you.
Sorry about that.
It happens.
- Look, it's not you.
I just, I I can't get karen getting hit by that car out of my mind.
Hey, wait a minute.
I can focus.
- I'm late for school.
We can give each other head In the shed behind the football field at lunch.
- It is hard to turn down head in the shed, But I might not make it there by lunch.
Gotta stop by the hospital, see if karen's okay.
She's in a coma.
- No, I know, I just Wanna show some support.
- She won't even know that you're there.
- Still, it's the right thing to do.
- Well, you want me to come with? No, I'm cool.
What's wrong? Nothing.
Your brow is furrowed.
- Oh, that's its natural state.

Morning, mandy.
- Why does lip give a fuck whether that bitch karen Is alive or dead? It's a mystery.
What was all that about? - You, karen, the unfathomable male soul.

- Debs, we need at least one person in this family To not turn cynical, and my money's been on you.
- I made soup for sheila.
- That's nice.
I'm gonna drop by the hospital.
I'll take it for you.
- And take the credit for doing something nice When you actually did nothing? - Well, to be fair, at that point, I will have carried it all the way over there, so-- - You're taking mandy for granted.
- Why? What'd she tell you? - She's kind, she's devoted, She's not someone whose feelings you can ignore, So stop being a dope, And put her feelings first every once in a while.
- School is a time to experiment with your minds And with your genitalia.
Now, the human genitalia, to me, is like a homing device-- God's compass.
Huh? And each of us has it, And it guides us to our destined homes.
Now, our devices don't work if we try to point 'em In a direction that they don't want to go in.
- He needs to tone it down, please.
- But, you know, I laugh for a point, Because let people chow down On the nether region of their choice-- Male, female, consenting animal.
Stop-- uh Mason preparatory academy, thank you so much - Thank you.
- For hearing our story.
thank you.
You're terrific.
You guys are terrific.
- I-- I'm sorry.
It's-- I can't-- - what the hell was that? - It's the hotel.
I need a mini-fridge.
I need a hot plate at the very least.
- I tried to take a nap - Excuse me? - And I can't-- - excuse me, That was the most honest speech I've ever heard.
I just texted my dad, and he told me I could donate $1,000 to the cause.
Um, who do I make the check out to? "the certitude commission.
" - Okay.
"cert"-- okay.
- Kill the phenobarbital and paralytics.
Excuse me.
Excuse me, hi.
I'm sorry.
I know-- good morning.
I know you're really busy, But what-- what are you "killing"? - The swelling appears to have gone down in her brain, So I'm killing the meds that induce the coma.
- Oh, okay.
Excuse me.
I'm sorry.
What does that mean? - I'm removing some of her meds.
- Okay.
N-- I'm sorry-- - hey! - Yes? - I'm a nice guy.
Patient, not usually a violent dude, But if you try to leave here one more time Without telling us what's going on In words we can understand, I will your lift your tiny body over my head And throw you out the window.
- Your wife has sustained serious trauma to her brain.
- So you said that you're removing The meds that induce the coma.
Does that mean she's gonna wake up soon? - That is one possibility.
- What are the other possibilities? - That she won't wake up soon, Or that she won't wake up ever.
- But if she does wake up, will she be okay? - We won't know how much damage there is until she wakes.
- Well, can we help her wake up? Is she-- can she hear us in there? Nobody knows, And I don't want to get myself thrown out the window.
Sweetie? Time to wake up.
- Bacon, lettuce, and tomato on white, Just like your other favorite meat.
Really, nothing? I've been brewing that line for weeks.
- Mom's period day is tomorrow.
- Oh.

I'll get a pee stick, we'll call your mom, And we'll watch her take a piss.
It'll be fun.

- So where did they meet? - She works at garden springs spa, If you call jerking off random dudes working.

Excellent cheese.

- Haven't seen you this cleaned up in ages, frank.
Uh, christmas, 2008.

You remember that? You still have it? That was hot! I went six or seven rounds.
That's close to my personal best.
Frank gallagher? Uh, never heard of him.
- Allow me to introduce myself.
Alistair huddleston.
Can I buy you a drink? Make it two.
To men.
- I work for "return to paradise project.
" We're a transformational ministry Specializing in conversion therapy.
We return homosexuals to healthy heterosexual lifestyles.
- Why would you go do that? - We believe that homosexuality is curable.
Though some find pleasure in it, homosexuality is an addiction, An addiction that tears families apart.
- I have a gay son.
Never have to worry About him impregnating some skanky neighborhood slut And bringing home her unplanned-for half-breed.
I wish I'd known I was gay back then.
I could've risen high in any one of the many fields Dominated by gays: Entertainment, politics, Broadcasting.
- You're working for abraham paige's agenda? - I'm cleaning up.
Helping the oppressed.
- They're addicted, not oppressed, And we can pay you more.
How much more? - Stipend, room, board, And substantial speaking fees upon completion of therapy.
I draw the line at therapy.
- But, frank, see, without the therapy, there's no cure.
I want to be able to say we cured you.
- Gay is who I am now.
Gay is who I shall be.
- Frank, you once walked the true path Of heterosexual love.
If I were to redirect you back onto that path, You'll be a much more compelling speaker for our cause, Because you'll have been singed by the fires of hell, But lived to tell.
Our therapy works.
It starts with aversion techniques, Conditioning you to avoid certain gay-sex triggers.
Clinical fornication would start Once you've practiced some of those techniques.
- Sorry, clinical fornication? - We house you in the delacroix hotel And deliver women to you to have sex with Until you're cured.
- I-I-I'm sorry, I interrupted you.
What-- ? - We feel this is a lesser sin than sodomy.
I grant that this seems unconventional, But new ideas are necessary to counter unwavering plagues.
We're paving a road back to god, And the devil has erected obstacles That call for rule-bending in service of a greater good.
- Throw in some walking-around money, And I'll give it a shot.
- That whore that mickey's marrying Is an actual whore that works at garden springs spa.
- Friends and family discounts on handy-js.
- Terry made mickey fuck her to fuck the gay out of him.
When? - After he caught us together.
- Dude, how did I not know this shit? I didn't tell you.
Well, did it work? - I mean, he might've faked it once or twice, But he wants to be with me.
I know what he felt with me.
You can't fake that.
And now this chick is pregnant.
Ian, my brother, you need to get out there And fuck someone new, okay? And someone in his early 20s, Not some old dude like kash or ned.
fuck you.
- All right, seriously, go into a gay bar, Make your need known, and have at it.
- Mandy's upset you're upset about karen.

How many people is mandy talking to? She cares about you.
WhyI don't know.
You can be a real shithead.
How did we get this mixed up With two people from the milkovich family? Um Bad parenting.
- Yeah.
Prime rib for two? - Right there.
oh, yeah.
And here you go, And here you go.
Gallagher? Please excuse my informality, But I saw you on tv, and just, On behalf of the entire gay community, I want to thank you for putting yourself In the crosshairs of this political issue.
I mean, it's courageous and inspiring.
Whatever you need while you are here - Uh - Please, just do not Hesitate to ask.
- Ketchup.
- What? - Ketchup.
- Oh! Absolutely, yes.
Um, my name is jesus.
Do you need me to sign you up for any spa treatments or - Well, I'm wide open tomorrow, Chockablock me some massages from sunup to sundown.
Throw in a facial.
Ok-- will do.
Oh, right! - Is it possible that my teeth Will spontaneously straighten out on their own? - Uh, jimmy's going back to medical school.
We can ask him to help.
I need alcohol.
- Is your mom not pregnant again? - Can't find her.
Went to her house, her work.
She's avoiding me.
Must be bad news.
- Think positive.
- I've done that For the past two months, And every time she pees on the stick, It's bad news, and then I get depressed Thinking about my husband banging my mom, 'cause we selfishly want to have a baby with some of our dna-- And maybe my mom can't get pregnant anymore, And we've crossed this line for no reason, And every time I'm reminded it's not me banging my husband, And it's not me peeing on the stick, And it's not me that gets to have the baby! - V, your mom wouldn't be doing this if it wasn't for you.
Kev's only doing this because he loves you.
There'd be no baby without you.
They all love you so much.
This is all about you.
So you're gonna get some wine, get the stick, Get your mom in the bathroom, and if you get bad news, Get drunk, And we'll figure out what comes next.
- Who needs root beer float coffee? All of us.
I love you.

- Ee! - Shut up! Yeah, if "not that bad" means one going this way And one going that way, then, yeah.
Well, they add character.
- I have red hair, freckles, and crooked teeth.
Don't need any more character.
- Okay, listen, things are a little tight right now, But I'll make it happen, soon.
I promise, okay? So Medical school, huh? - II mean, I put in a ton of work, And I just got thinking that maybe I should go back And finish what I started.

You're smart, you care about people, You're a good person.
- Mmm.
- Getting carl braces, debbie braces, Taking care of liam.

- 'cause I'm gonna need it.
Plenty of work.
Plenty of hours.

These mini-bottles are a little too mini.
I need to get some of the big boys up here.
Will do.
I brought you some media that needs to be viewed Before we can begin the conversion process.
- Okeydokey.
I'll get started on this one pronto.
- You have been married before? - Still am, but she never really floated my boat.
I did my husbandly duty to keep her happy, But it was always without pleasure Or joy.
- Kids? - A few.
- So you have committed the loving act Of heterosexual copulation? - It was always under the influence, frankly.
Had to to get the plumbing to work.

With your history of female contact, We can begin the clinical fornication stage immediately.
- I doubt it'll work, but I'll give it my best efforts If you think it might help.
