Foe Yay: Dr. Schtein and Dr. Benjamin Langstrom have this in spades. Even as a delirium tremens-induced hallucination, Langstrom has a tendency to address Schtein as 'Hervy' and 'darling'.
- Given that it has been revealed that Langstrom was secretly homosexual, the subtext is probably intentional.
- Schtein's interactions with Aryan thug Drew MacManus have a bit of this as well; both get very handsy with each other, even the germaphobic Schtein. Schtein even straddles him right before the stabbing begins.
MacManus: You disrespected me, so I'm not really content with merely beating your ass, boy. I'm pretty much gonna have to break you. By the time I'm done, you'll be begging for more beatings.
- Not to mention, Word of God says that Langstrom had an odd attraction to Schtein. It's later all but outright declared in the comic that their rivalry started when Schtein had a bad reaction to Langstrom coming on to him. Though it was more Schtein's overall problems with people getting in the way, the presence of some homophobia in that reaction cannot be entirely discounted.
