e. Let them all sing "I'm the Greatest Star" together and then I'll decide.

I have that entire Love Boat on a DVD I bought on Ebay and I've never watched it.

I'm afraid to.

That episode is so gay, it's frightening.

That greatest star clip, is over the top in camp. A single watch can turn you gay!
