I was like, “Oh my goodness, I think I’m gay.  I think so.”Roberts:  So they don’t pitch that to you before?Meloni:  No, they didn’t.  And that was alright.  And then, so when I got that third script, I looked at Lee and said, “It’s official.  I’m gay.”Roberts:  ”For you.”Meloni:  ”And so are you, ‘cause you kissed me back.”Roberts:  ”And you like it.”Meloni:  Yeah, he does.Roberts:  You both liked it.  It was obvious to me.Meloni:  Both when the camera is rolling and when it’s not.Roberts:  That’s what I mean about staying in character.  It’s important.Meloni:  Got it.Roberts:  It’s important.  Do you?  Because I always hear that when people are on a movie set, and they’re playing opposite a woman, they kind of have that thing where they fall in love a little bit.  Does that happen with Lee Tergesen, a little bit?Meloni:  Oh, we fell in love.Roberts:  A little bit, right?Meloni:  Oh, yeah.Roberts:  So, that must make you be like, “Look at this.  Two men are in love right now.”Meloni:  Mmm-hmm.  To this day.Roberts:  That’s good.Meloni:  Yeah.Roberts:  That’s beautiful.Meloni:  Yeah.
