37: Caroline’s Assistant Is a — Wait, He’s Straight?


Caroline and the Gay Art Show” (October 5, 1995)

Okay, hear us out. I know you’re seeing that we did an episode about Caroline in the City and asking yourself why we would consider it a “classic” sitcom,” but there’s actually a lot going on here. Malcolm Gets played Caroline’s assistant, Richard, with a flair befitting a theater vet, but his chemistry with lead Lea Thompson didn’t read as romantic to many viewers. So why did they make Caroline and Richard pair off? And why did the third episode of the show revolve around the notion of Richard repeatedly stating, “I’m straight”? It’s actually an interesting story.
