... you can learn from:
Torch Song Trilogy (1988)
Arnold : Ma... I miss him.Ma: Give yourself time, Arnold. It gets better... But, Arnold, it never goes away. You can work longer hours, adopt a son, fight with me, whatever... it'll still be there. But that's all right, it becomes a part of you, like learning to wear a ring or a pair of eyeglasses. You get used to it. And that's good. It's good, because it makes sure you don't forget. You don't want to forget him, do you?
I have never seen Torch Song Trilogy, you guys! Shame on me, I am a lousy terrible and foul homosexual - take me into the streets and beat me violently about the wrists with calla-lilies. (Until all that is done you should also wish Harvey Fierstein a happy birthday.)
