“When Harry Met Salvatore”
A gay take on a great scene from one of my favorite movies, and arguably one of the best romantic comedies of all time (which I just gladly rewatched).

Harry: You realize of course that we could never be friends.
Sal: Why not?
Harry: What I’m saying is — and this is not a come-on in any way, shape or form — is that gay men can’t be friends because the sex part always gets in the way.
Sal: That’s not true. I have a number of gay male friends and there is no sex involved.
Harry: No you don’t.
Sal: Yes I do.
Harry: You only think you do.
Sal: You say I’m having sex with them without my knowledge?
Harry: No, what I’m saying is they all WANT to have sex with you.
Sal: They do not.
Harry: Do too.
Sal: How do you know?
Harry: Because no gay man can be friends with a man that he finds attractive. He always wants to have sex with him.
Sal: So, you’re saying that a gay man can be friends with a man he finds unattractive?
Harry: No. You pretty much want to nail ’em too.
Sal: What if THEY don’t want to have sex with YOU?
Harry: Doesn’t matter because the sex thing is already out there so the friendship is ultimately doomed and that is the end of the story.
Sal: Well, I guess we’re not going to be friends then.
Harry: I guess not.
Sal: That’s too bad. You were the only person I knew in San Francisco.
But, at least Harry doesn’t have to worry about Sal faking an orgasm (ala Meg Ryan)!
