Andrew Beckett: You’ve survived what I assume to be your first gay party intact.
Joe Miller: Let me tell you something, Andrew, when you’re brought up the way I am, the way most people are in this country, there’s not a whole lot of discussion about homosexuality or what do you call it, alternate lifestyles.

Andrew Beckett: Thank you for sharing that with me.
Joe Miller: You’re very welcome.
