When Tom (aka "Mr. Friendly") told Kate "You're not my type" people quickly jumped on the gay bandwagon (not literally). And sure enough, our suspicions were confirmed in "Meet Kevin Johnson" when we saw how Friendly likes to indulge.
But despite what many have claimed, Tom's "gayness" did not result from an over-exposure to the theatrical spirit-gum he used over and over for that fake beard of his. (okay, so maybe that is not a real theory right now, but if it were, it would be stupid).
