Hank Venture: You're gay, right?
The Alchemist: Yeah!

The Alchemist: Hank?
Hank Venture: Your dingus! Does it look real?
The Alchemist: What is Kid-Crazy talking about?
Jefferson Twilight: He thinks you're transgender.
The Alchemist: Hank, it looks real because it IS real! I'm gay, it doesn't mean I was born a woman! I have a regular dingus, as you say.
Jefferson Twilight: Hank, aren't you just a little ashamed of your ignorance?

Good for Dean!
21 May 2017 | by ericstevensonSee all my reviews

I feel so dumb for not being familiar with more of the characters from this series. I've watched a fair number of episodes, but among the Triads, the only one I recognize is Orpheus. Orpheus is still a great character and I like the idea of an episode being devoted to him. Then again, Dean is featured a lot too and he's quite entertaining as well. This actually did feature some nice character development from him. He's thinking about his relationship with Triana and he even get a kiss from her at the end. Hank is rather fun too.

We get some hilarious bits when Orpheus and his daughter go into the closet and are confronted by their worst fears. Wow, Orpheus really did have a good looking wife. The old Dean bit was great too. Everyone gets a chance to make some good jokes in this episode and we focus on some characters that rarely get the spotlight. This is just what you should do with a show that has this many characters. Of course, any long running show is bound to have them. ***1/2
