In the second act, dated April 1982, Howard and Paul are discussing how Howard will play one of the first gay characters in a daytime soap opera. Howard says it's fine for an actor like William Hurt to play a gay character but not him. He is obviously referring to Hurt's role in Kiss of the Spider Woman (1985), for which Hurt won an Academy Award for Best Actor. But that film came out in 1985, three years after the time in which this scene is set.
