Emmett asks Pickle where they're going tonight. Pickle admits he's too tired for gay fun and would rather have a nice long nap in his red cardigan. Emmett says that Pickle just needs his dance legs. Emmett finds an invitation on the floor. It's for the opera gala tonight. Emmett says he's never gone, but that his friend Ted loves it. Pickle asks whether Emmett would like his tickets. He says he hasn't gone to the opera since he came out. Emmett says it's time for Pickle to go again. Pickle says it'd be too difficult and painful since everybody there would be staring. Plus his ex-wife would be there. Emmett doesn't hear the words "difficult" or "painful" and decides the opera is the place to be for them tonight. Together. Pickle says he doesn't want to talk about it anymore. Emmett says that if someone were trying to stop him from doing something he loved..."Fuck 'em all?" Pickle finishes. Emmett: "You got it, baby," and leaves. Emmett kind of walks in and out of Pickle's house like he is a gigolo. Are we sure he's not getting paid? Does Emmett have a job? Does anyone on this show anymore?
Cut to Mikey's job, but nobody's working. Brian lights a candle under the cutout of Captain Astro and begins delivering a eulogy. He admits it's the same eulogy that the priest gave his father when he died. Michael tells him to cut it out since he didn't even know Captain Astro. Brian, of course, points out that the priest didn't know his father either. Michael pouts and pouts and pouts that he cares about a comic book character more than a real person until Brian walks over and begins smooching on him. Brian points out that Michael's known Captain Astro his whole life and only met "dumpster boy" this morning, so how much is he supposed to care? Yeah, I guess Brian has a point. Why should I care about murders of people I don't know? Fuck 'em all. Brian reminisces about the time Mikey started that "retarded" Captain Astro fan club and Brian was the only member. "I felt sorry for you," Brian says in a tard voice. They reminisce and flirt and stroke and kiss. Brian tells Mikey that Captain Astro was his hero, so it's okay to mourn his loss.
