* CastFullOfGay: Both the characters and most of the actors. Ironically, the most flaming queen, Emory, was played by straight actor Cliff Gorman.

* TallDarkAndSnarky: [UpToEleven HAROLD]]. Michael is this too, but he's a far second to the queen bee himself.

Added DiffLines:

* TallDarkAndHandsome: Larry and Hank in the movie - especially to [[AmbiguouslyGay Alan]] who compliments the latter on his good looks. Alan himself is very good looking in the film as well.
* TallDarkAndSnarky: [UpToEleven HAROLD]]. Michael is this too, but he's a far second to the queen bee himself.

* AlphaBitch: '''Harold'''.


Added DiffLines:

* TheHeart: Harold, all of it hidden beneath his DeadpanSnarker and GallowsHumor persona.
** It takes several viewings to realize this about Harold. On first viewing, he looks more like a StepfordSmiler.


Added DiffLines:

* TheLancer: Harold to Michael.


Added DiffLines:

* Lovable AlphaBitch: '''Harold'''.
** Harold is in many ways the group's TeamMom: He reassures Emory about his cooking when no one else does, makes sure Bernard will be taken care of, defends Cowboy from moments of bullying -- all while remaining the master DeadpanSnarker.
*** He even demonstrates ToughLove with Michael.

Added DiffLines:

** Invoked by Bernard at Michael.
--->'''Michael:''' Well, thatís a knee-slapper! I love your telling him about dignity when you allow him to degrade you constantly by Uncle Tom-ing you to death.
--->'''Bernard:''' He can do it, Michael. I can do it. But you canít do it.
--->'''Michael:''' Isnít that discrimination?
--->'''Bernard:''' I donít like it from him and I donít like it from me Ė but I do it myself and I let him do it. I let him do it because itís the only thing that, to him, makes him my equal. We both got the short end of the stick Ė but I got a hell of a lot more than he did and he knows it. I let him Uncle Tom me just so he can tell himself heís not a complete loser.
