  • Jack: (Watching a basketball game) Mhm mm! Look at those tall guys in those tiny shorts and tight tank tops. Why do straight guys watch this?
    Grace: If I knew why straight guys do anything, would I be hanging out with you two homos?

  • Will: Stop standing there, looking all disapproving of me and rolling your eyes!
    Grace: I was debating whether to add clam strips to my order!
    Will: I know that look! It's the same look you have every time I try to do a British accent.
    Grace: I don't have a look!
    Will: (In a bad British accent) Oh, don't you, love?

  • Grace: Oh, there's Matt! He looks good on TV!
    Will: Yeah, there's my man! My squeeze! My steady fella! No wonder I was alone for so long.

  • Grace: Sorry I'm late, this homeless guy asked me for money. I thought he was just gonna spend it on booze, so I took him to the Korean market and told him he could get up to two pounds of salad. But then I thought, who am I to tell him he can't get booze? So then I took him to the liquor store and got him a triple malt.
    Jack: Is that true?
    Grace: Saks was having a shoe sale.
    Will: Not only do your lies have too much detail, they're also socially irresponsible.

  • Jack: Yeah. There's this fish restaurant in Queens. It's where all the gay guys take their closeted boyfriends. You know, it's like a casual saw-dust-on-the-floor, hands-down-my-pants kind of place.

  • Will: Make no mistake about it, Harry, I am a gay man. I sleep with men. I have no desire to sleep with women--not now, not ever. (Karen walks into the restaurant) Karen: You screwed me, Will Truman!

  • (After Karen reading the revised version of Stan's will) Jack: Looks like Stan's got a big heart to go with his enlarged prostate. Karen: Oh, balls! (Jack giggles uncontrollably)

  • Will: I just said, 'Hey, I'm an out and proud gay man. I'm not about to go back in the closet for the sake of a relationship.' Grace: Oh, that is so good! And it's so right; we're here, we're queer and he'd better get used to it!
