Wheels thinks about death and loneliness so hard he doesn't even notice when Jerry comes in. I'm beginning to think he's right that he's about to... No, he's just taken one of the Valiums the doctor gave him.
Wheels: "I think maybe I am queer for you."
Jerry: "Well, maybe I feel that way too, you pill popper."
Wheels: "No, I'm serious. I mean, I'm high as hell, but it gives me pause that I worry about you all the time and about your welfare all the time. I am watching the horses and that makes me happy, they run fast and then it all goes to hell, because I am so worried about you and where you are."
Wheels: "So why am I so intense about you? Because I am maybe gay. I am nervous right now talking to you about it, even up to the gills on Valium."
Twitch & Lonnie: Listen in, amazed! To be fair, it's because it is amazing!
Jerry: "Marcus, it would explain a lot. But you've never tried to fuck me."
Wheels: "Yeah, because I am in a wheelchair!"
Jerry: "There's fags in wheelchairs. There's even a Fag Wheelchair Olympics. But it doesn't count unless you try to blow me. Those are the rules."
Wheels: "I'm not sure I understand what you're implying, but I'm listening."
Jerry: "No, I'm just saying maybe you have never had a friend before, because you're so awful and because you have had to concentrate on taking care of yourself in that wheelchair."
Wheels: "It's true, I do hate my friends."
Jerry: "Listen, I was all set to go gamble today, but then I had to come back and check on you. So does that mean I am queer for you? Because I don't recall ever wanting to fuck you."
Wheels: "It's because I'm in this chair!"
Jerry: "No, it's because we are not gay. You are just high. Let's go have some breakfast. I'll get the boys."
Twitch & Lonnie: "We were not listening! To you guys being gay!"
Well, I guess this isn't the week to quit recapping the show, because that was brilliant. Every time you think you're out...
