Albert:
Could you tell them I was a relative who dropped in? Val's Uncle? Uncle Al?
Armand:
What's the point? You'd be Val's gay Uncle Al.
Albert:
Oh, I could play it straight!
Armand:
Oh please, look at you! Look at the way you're holding your glass! Look at your pinky! Look at your posture!
Albert:
What? What about you? You're obviously not a cultural... whatever it is. You've never been to a museum, and you eat like a pig!
Armand:
Albert, these people are right-wing conservatists. They don't care if you're a pig, they just care if you're a fag!... Ah, fuck 'em! Of course you can pass as an uncle!

Transcript:
Could you say I was a
visiting relative?
Val's uncle? Uncle Al?
What's the point?
To be Val's gay uncle?
I could play it straight.
Oh, please. Look at you,
at how you hold your glass.
Look at your pinky,
your posture.
What about you? You're obviously
not a cultural... whatever it is.
You've never been to a museum
and you eat like a pig.
These conservatives don't care
if you're a pig, just if you're a fag.
Oh, fuck 'em. Of course
you can pass as an uncle.
You're a great performer,
I'm a great director.
Together we can do anything.
Oh, Armand. Really?
Absolutely.
We've got five hours.
First, get your pinky down.
It's up again.
And your posture.
My God! Are you crazy?
What are you doing?
Stop screaming!
I'm teaching you to act like a man.
All right, all right.
It's a dinner party,
let's work with food.
Spread some mustard
on the toast.
Don't use the spoon. And
don't dribble dots of mustard.
You take your knife...
...and you smear.
Men smear.
Smear. Yeah.
Get the goddamn pinky down! Make
your fingers like iron. Stop trembling!
