Marriage 2000: A Time Odyssey

DOCTOR:Canton just wants to get married. Hell of a reason to kick him out of the FBI.

NIXON:I’m sure something can be arranged. … This person you want to marry – black?


NIXON:I know what people think of me, but perhaps I’m a little more liberal –

CANTON:he is.

NIXON:I think the moon is far enough for now, don’t you, Mr. Delaware?

CANTON:I figured it might be.

It struck me because I’d seen DW viewers complaining that it was “unrealistic” that Nixon would even have so much as considered the issue of same-sex marriage.
