  • Quotes (8)

    • Grace: My mother is across the street having dinner with Jack. What do you think's going on?
      Will: What do you care? You didn't want to see her, you're not seeing her.
      Grace: I know, I'm just curious. I'm a naturally curious person who's interested about how things work in the world.
      Will: I thought you were a naturally lazy person who didn't care how things happen as long as you didn't have to do them.
      Grace: Oh, yeah. That's who I am.

    • Grace: (tearfully to Bobbi about Jack) Not betta him than me... betta me than him!

    • Karen: So you and Barry are lovers? Cheryl: God, no. I wish! I've never even met him. But he has brought me to climax more times than any other man.

    • Jack: Karen, Grace is after me! If you see her, fire a warning shot into her hair! What are we in line for? God, from the looks of this crowd, I hope it's birth control.

    • Grace: Betta him than me! That's right, betta him than me! Cheryl: (to Karen) Don't talk to her anymore unless you want to hear that "better him than me" thing like a thousand more times.

    Trivia (2)

    • Goof: Rudy says that he'll take Will back to the sound check and meet Barry if Will goes out with him after the concert and Will calls it "sexual blackmail". Being a lawyer himself, Will should know it's actually not blackmail; it's extortion (since Rudy is trying to get a date with Will). If he was blackmailing Will, he could have said something like, "Go out with me or I'll tell everyone you're a Fanilow." because he would have an embarrassing secret on him that he could use against him.

    • Sara Gilbert will later appear in TWINS, another show produced and created by David Kohan and Max Mutchnick.

    • Barry Manilow: Yeah, I gotta go to the Copacabaño!
      This spoofs Barry's own song and 1985 TV Movie Copacabana. Baño is the Spanish word for bathroom.
