Guilt-consumed Debby spends $27,000 she can't afford on a monumental marble angel for Vic's grave, at least Justin won't remain hopelessly alone serving in the diner. Hollywood executive Brett Keller promises Mikey and Justin to keep the movie version of Rage gay and stays in Pittsburgh to see Brian, their intriguing inspiration, in Babylon on 'wet willies day', but Ben reproaches him to use his rare power not for gay issues but meaningless 'entertainment for 12-year old boys', Hunter worries needlessly Michael may break up; Keller sent an option.

"Fiercely Realistic" is a gross understatement
13 January 2008 | by (Long Island, New York) – See all my reviews

Episode 408 "I feel like I've died and gone to homo heaven." ~Brian

This show has done the impossible. Throughout every season, it has thus far remained absolutely perfect and doesn't have hardly any faults whatsoever. With the passing of Vic and Brian getting testicular cancer, it's almost as if we're being transported to another dimension of perfection. This episode made me cry hysterically, not just because of the absolutely note-perfect acting, but because the dialogue and the script was so flawlessly written. It's painfully obvious why this show was called 'fiercely realistic' from the get-go. I liked how Horvath was brought back into the picture, and the speech he gave to Debbie had me crying my eyes out. It was so heartfelt and so very moving. Michael tells Brian that he and Justin know about Brian's cancer, and the results are quite terrifying. Michael tells Brian that he never wants to lose him, and that entire scene is just so entirely amazing. The ending, in which Brian finally explodes on Justin, is shocking and fitting, and even the smaller scenes (such as the director meeting and the whole Rage thing) were perfect. One of the best of season four so far, and one of the best of the entire series.
