While the show’s attempted depth before, too often it’s been forced in like a foot too small for a shoe. But this time, the program spoke volumes about how homophobia has no place in our world.

And that’s just what happens by the end of the show, as Ed brings in Tim’s gay men’s chorus to sing “Anchors Aweigh,” Wally complains and Ed tells him to just leave his house if he can’t handle someone or in this case, a bunch of guys being gay.
