A classic for the inaugural quote of the week:

“Must one go through the five official stages? What are those five stages again: ‘anger, denial, bargaining, depression, and acceptance.’ Well, back up: here comes my acceptance speech. ‘I am now, and I have always been a flaming faggot, responsible for style in its every manifestation. I have my own five steps: flippancy, sentimentality, sarcasm, camp, and smut!’ “

– Robert Patrick, “Pouf Positive,” in Untold Decades: Seven Comedies of Gay Romance (1988) (performed by Harvey Fierstein on his album This Is Not Going to be Pretty)
