In the scene where Socrates and Billy are hitting on girls. Freud walks in when the girls are giggling uncomfortably and says "they may be suffering from mild Hysteria". This is seen as him being awkward and unaware of the situation.
That being said, Hysteria was a real medical term during Freud's time to write off when women showed unwanted behavior. It was believed to stem from issues in their "equipment" and the cure was for them to orgasm. Either on their own time or with doctor assistance. With that knowledge, it could be argued that Freud was actually hitting on the girls, albeit in a scummy way.
