‘Gary, what are you doing?’
‘I’m digging a hole.’
‘Gary, you’ve been sullen ever since Marshall came out. Why don’t you talk about it? Get things off your chest.’
‘There’s nothing to talk about it, Mel! Marshall’s lifestyle is his own to make.’
‘Oh, Gary! Don’t tell me you are homophobic.’
‘No! I’m not. I have no issues with Marshall being gay. Only with the fact that they are not planning for kids.’
‘It’s up to me to take care of our family tree.’
‘Yup! I’m planting myself. Don’t worry. The seed is strong.’
