When Garth brings his handsome friend home from school, Sharon annoys Tracey by suggesting they may be gay, leading to Tracey to tell Darryl before finding solid proof. Dorien has her own way of finding out if Richard is gay or not.

Further details

Garth brings home a good looking. well spoken friend from school, Richard, leading to speculation about Garth's sexuality.

They look for evidence in Garth's room, but don't find anything conclusive. Tracey gets more upset and Sharon's joking doesn't help the situation.

Before actually knowing either way, Tracey tells Darryl on her next prison visit. When he realises she hasn't even asked Garth if he is gay or not, Darryl accuses her of jumping to conclusions as usual.

Sharon gives Tracey advice on how to ask Garth if he is gay or not. When she does ask him, he says he isn't, just before Dorien arrives and says she can definitely confirm that Richard is't.
