* In ''Film/{{Bound}}'', Caesar walks in on his girlfriend having an intimate conversation with a ButchLesbian, Corky. He's about to get angry when Corky turns around and reveals herself to be a woman. Caesar excuses himself and mutters about how dark the room is. Corky was probably written as being more butch then she ended up, as it's not particularly believable to mistake her for a man.
