Brian's loft. Mikey's lecturing Brian that he should apologize. Brian's not sure what he's apologizing for. Mike storms that it was his father's funeral, and that Brian's dad earned his respect, even if he was a shit. Brian, well into what looks like a bottle of rum, snarls, "Bullshit. If you don't earn respect when you're alive, you don't deserve it when you're dead." Brian compliments Mike on his respectfulness, though: "Everyone was very touched by your little memory. Only you don't remember shit." Brian stumbles up to his bed, snaps open a popper, and takes a hit. Mike tsks, "Haven't you abused yourself enough?" Brian: "No!" Snicker. They plop down on the bed and Brian corrects Mike's tale (that's "tale," not "tail," so don't get excited): Brian did get a strike, they were jumping up and down, Jack did come back from the bar and surprise them, but Mike's the one who hugged Brian, not Jack -- "That was just your 'gee, I wish I had a daddy' fantasy," Brian tells Mike -- and Brian gave Mike a big kiss. Which is when Jack yelled, "What are you, a couple of fucking fairies?" Brian says that he pushed Mike away so hard, he "practically rolled down the lane." And then Brian ran away. Brian gets up because it's hot in the loft, and standing up is the only way he can dramatically rip off his shirt, popping all the buttons. Still needs to get back into the crunches. Mike stops him and makes him lie down on the bed. He mutters that maybe giving Brian coffee wasn't such a good idea, and takes Brian's shoes off and starts to unbutton his pants so he can put him to bed. All of a sudden, Brian grabs Mike and asks him to stay with him. He pulls Mike down as Mike agrees to stay for a little while. They snuggle, and then Brian pushes Mike onto his back and starts to kiss him. Mike's all, what are you doing?! Brian, unzipping Mike's pants, says he's just messing around. Mike stops him, and Brian asks him, "Isn't that what you've always wanted, Michael?" Mike: "What, a drunken fuck so you don't have to think about your dad? I never wanted that." Brian rolls off him as Mike sits up, probably thinking, wait a minute, was that right?
