* '''Played For Laughs''': Bob and Charlie are actually straight. However, everyone around them is intractably convinced that they're gay, with the result that women that they're interested in reject them because they believe them to be gay, gay men keep hitting on them, and everyone encourages them to take those final steps out of a closet they aren't actually in. This causes them quite a bit of frustration.
