  • friend: hey what's up?
  • me in my head: the lesbians next door are so overlooked in falsettos even though they have such an important and touching role in the musical. they're so overlooked that the actresses who play them are hardly included in cast interviews and are never given enough credit for their amazing performances as those characters.
  • me: nothing.
