Tucker and his client, a television producer, and a network censor meet with a gay activist to discuss whether the phrase "queer as a three dollar bill" should be cut from a script. When the activist enters the meeting, he is a walking stereotype. He advises that, in the context it's being used, the phrase is not offensive. Dropping the stereotypical mannerisms, the activist explains that what is offensive is that they all unquestioningly accepted the stereotypes he was presenting and challenges the producer to create non-stereotypical gay characters.
