Freud assured the unnamed mother that "Homosexuality is assuredly no advantage, but it is nothing to be ashamed of, no vice, no degradation; it cannot be classified as an illness;" then name dropped some of history's greatest gays -- Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and Plato (just to include one non-Ninja Turtle in the bunch) -- before going on to declare that "It is a great injustice to persecute homosexuality as a crime, and cruelty too."

"Might I suggest that you are suffering from an acute case of butt stuff envy?"
In response to her specific plea for help, Freud offered to, rather than curing her son of his homosexuality, help him come to terms with it to achieve "harmony" and "peace of mind," the only catch being that he'd have to travel to Vienna for treatment. That presumably never happened on a post-Depression mom's budget, but it was a kind offer nonetheless.
Tom Cruise Is A Real-Life Action Hero
Tom Cruise needs no introduction, which is probably a good thing in the event that Tom Cruise should be the one pulling you from the flaming twist of metal formerly known as your car. Hey, it could happen. Don't believe us? Allow us, then, to present precedent:
Back in March of 1995, while driving along Wilshire Boulevard in Santa Monica, Cruise was one of several who witnessed an Acura Legend plow clean over 23-year-old aspiring actress (which, naturally, translates to "waitress") Heloisa Vinhas. Cruise was quick to action, not only arranging for an ambulance but following the victim to UCLA Medical Center ...
By running presumably.
Where he picked up her $7,000 Emergency Room tab. Yeah, we can't leave out that part. You could argue that calling for help was the least he could do and that following her to the hospital is just going a little above and beyond. Footing the stranger's medical bill is the kind of thing that's rare even among those who can easily afford it.
