we're all somewhere in the middle

Work Text:

"I think we're all a little gay," Jules says, three glasses of wine in.

Grayson scoffs. "Please. Are not."

"Are too!"

Ellie nods. "She's right. It's true. Andy is gay for Bobby."

At this, Andy nods, smiles, and looks up at Bobby adoringly. 

Ellie continues. "Bobby is mostly gay for Andy but also a little bit gay for Grayson." 

Grayson gives Bobby a disbelieving look. Bobby holds up his hands in a what can you do gesture.

"I'm gay for Jules," Ellie says. Jules beams.

"So am I!" exclaims Laurie.

"And they're both a little gay for each other but refuse to admit it," Jules says.

Ellie and Laurie glare at each other for a few seconds and then shrug.

"Who are you gay for?" Andy asks Jules.

"Ellie, duh," Jules says, sharing a conspiring look with Ellie, who rolls her eyes.

"And Laurie," Jules adds, noticing that Laurie has opened in her mouth, about to protest. 

"And also a little bit for Barb," Jules mumbles, looking out into the distance.

Everyone stares at her.

"What?" She asks defensively. "I don't get it either!"

"Wait," Grayson says, trademark smirk on his face. "If we're all a little bit gay, then who am I gay for?"

Jules looks at him like he's crazy. "Bobby. Obviously."

Grayson starts to argue but then thinks better of it.

Everyone turns to look at Travis, who has been watching the entire scene unfold, completely silent.

"I think you're all just bi."

Everybody in the group starts talking at once, voices overlapping.

Travis stands up. "And I'm out."

The crew continues conversing until the sound of the front door closing interrupts them.

Laurie's the first to speak again. "Do you think he meant just out out or like gay out?"

"I thought we'd established that we're all bi," Bobby says, sounding confused.

Ellie waves her hand. "Eh, semantics."

"More wine?" Asks Jules. 

Everyone cheers in unison. "Wine!"
