Even in the 80s, Brad Pitt wasn't immune to "teh gay innuendo"

From the movie synopsis of "Cutting Class" posted on the plan_9_from_lj community, written by storydivagirl.

Note: Creepy = the creepy schizophrenic kid who was tried and convicted for killing his father, but has recently been released from a psychiatric hospital and Brad = Brad Pitt, like you really need to know his character's name.

It’s auto shop time! Brad brings his car in as the teacher announces, “Now we work on brakes.”

Creepy is tinkering under Brad’s car. Brad slides under to “supervise” anything creepy does.

I could go on at great length about the blatant homosexual undertones of this scene, but really, I think the actual dialogue is much funnier than anything I could provide you all with.

Creepy asks, “Have you worked on your car much?”

“No, I haven’t been underneath a car in a long time.”

“How come?”

“I just polish the outside.”

“You know I used to like working on cars with you.”


“Yeah...remember that time under my dad’s car...we took that part out, didn’t put it back in.”

“We were just fooling around.”

“I wasn’t fooling around... I never said a word about it.”

“That was a long time ago, Brian.” (Silently you know he adds, “During my gay phase”)

“I’ll never forget what you taught me....when you use a screwdriver, it’s always righty-tighty, lefty-loosey...I’ll never forget.”

Ahh, nostalgia. Makes me misty, once I stop laughing hysterically because I have the sense of humor of an eleven-year-old boy.
