I can’t recommend this episode too highly for those looking to help a friend get a job. Slow dialog: 1:31 Explanations: 3:07 Fast dialog: 14:41 Jimmy: My cousin Sal said that he put in an application for a job here. Suzanne: Yeah, that’s right. Jimmy: Well? Suzanne: Well, what? Jimmy: Are you going to hire him? Suzanne: I’m not sure. He doesn’t have any experience and he didn’t provide any references. Jimmy: I can vouch for him. Sal is solid. He’s a really nice guy. Suzanne: I appreciate you putting in a good word for him, but I need more assurance than that he’s a nice guy. He needs to have the temperament, work ethic, and skills for this job. Jimmy: What he doesn’t know he’ll learn on the job. He’s a quick study. Suzanne: How can I justify hiring someone with no experience, while passing up applicants who are better qualified? Jimmy: He has my ringing endorsement. What else do you need? He’ll work as hard as I do. Suzanne: That’s exactly what I’m afraid of. Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
In a time where we're all threatened by a rhetoric of hate from the people in power; A Gay And A NonGay challenges many of our differences head on and promises that no matter who you are, or what you're into (Bruce Springsteen or Britney), love is love and gay and nongays can be friends.
