In 5x09, she tells Nick that going to the Peck family dinner was supposed to be her first dinner with them as a lesbian, and had hoped it would be with Holly.

In 4x07, after Gail tells her that, just like a cat who climbs up a tree then doesn't know how to get down from it, she creates emergency situations to get out of relationships, Holly responds that it used to be the same for her, but it turned out to be due to her not liking men because she was a lesbian.[50]
