Here are some selections of dialogue for an episode of Nash Bridges where Nash and Cheech pretend to be gay in order to solve a crime.
Cheech: We set up shop, establish a reputation in the gay community. Then, we come out.
Nash Bridges: We come OUT?
Cheech: We come out, as straight.
Nash Bridges: But we're already in...out? Oh, I just don't know anymore!
(SUBTEXT: Nash is not gay. Cheech is less un-gay. Modern notions of sexual identity confuse Nash Bridges.)
Nash Bridges: That's in the Castro District. You got an address?
Informant: 475 Hancock.
Nash Bridges: (Raises an eyebrow)
(SUBTEXT: That street name sounds like "Hand cock". Nash is not gay.)
Cheech: This is my partner, Nash Bridges.
Leather daddy: How long have you been together?
Cheech: 20 years.
(SUBTEXT: Whoa, "partners"? Are Cheech and Nash gay?)
Nash Bridges: Open your eyes, Pocohontas. I'm a cop.
"Pocohontas": I like cops.
Nash Bridges: I'm busy. And you're annoying me. Is there any part of that you don't understand? (Pocohontas shakes his head) Good.
(SUBTEXT: Hey fags! Stop hitting on Nash! Not gay!)
