Philip Hefflin is a photographer and artist.
A young Philip Hefflin and Abraham Simpson
A couple of years after World War II, Abraham Simpson was hired to be the model for toy army figures by Whiz-Bang Toy Company. Philip Hefflin served as the photographer for the photoshoot. During the shoot, Hefflin mistook Abe's friendliness for him coming onto him and kissed Abe, causing Abe to freak out. When they tried to continue the shoot, Abe ran away. After this incident, Philip Hefflin got fired for being gay.
In the present day, Abe remembered about all this and went to Marfa, Texas to apologize to Hefflin. When he got there, Abe found a rainbow colored statue of himself as an army man in the town. He then entered Hefflin's art studio where there were all sorts of paintings of Abe in his army outfit. Abe apologized to Hellfin for what he did to him but Hefflin told him that he saved his life by letting him live his life as he wanted. Hefflin divorced his wife and went to settle in Marfa, Texas. Abe and Philip then decided to finish the photoshoot. After this, Abe kissed Philip before he told him that he was as straight as Gomer Pyle and left, still friends with Philip. Abe later put a photo of him and Philip together up on the wall of his room.
