  • Quotes (8)

    • Grace: Will? Will: My dad had a heart attack. Grace: Oh, my God. Are they at the hospital? Will: Yeah. But he didn't make it. (Grace covers her mouth in shock)

    • Grace: We're having dinner with your parents, and if your mother finds out that I'm pregnant because I had unsafe sex on an airplane and haven't told the father yet because he's engaged to another woman, she is going to find some way of making it sound sordid.

    • Karen: (about Zandra) I don't know, honey. I took a dropper full of cat tranquilizer this morning and even I think she's a little off. Jack: Karen, this woman is a genius and clear as a bell. Zandra: (to Jack) I know you...you're Jack McFarland, the worst actor I ever saw! Jack: (terrified) Oh my God, Karen, you're right! She's crazy!

    • Karen: Say there, you look like a cute little out-of-work gay boy. I don't suppose you'd be interested in hopping around for pocket change and answering to the name 'Poodle'? Man in Audition: Hmmm. Do I get to play with those? (motions towards her breasts) Karen: Of course!

    • Will's Father: Will, you hardly said two words during dinner Will: You want two words? I'll give you two words: My Blanket.

    • Grace (wearing an oversized hat): If I hold this bag of groceries like this, can you tell I'm pregnant? Will: I can tell, but then I'm not part of the Rhythm Nation. This is a reference to Janet Jackson's 1989 album Rhythm Nation 1814, the cover of which shows Jackson wearing a similar hat.
