  • Quotes (3)

    • Jack: I sick--with the Evian flu. I shared a bottle of Evian with a stranger at the gym.

    • Will: That's my Grace. You're a good person. Just like Jake Gyllenhaal. I don't know, sometimes when I look at my screen saver, I think... 'Yeah, you're thinking about me, too.' Grace: You know, I used to be that way about Sarah Jessica Parker. But then, we shared an elevator ride together and she poked me in the boob with an umbrella and didn't apologize. Will: Were you trying to hug her? Grace: That's not important.

    • Jack: Wow... so dramatic. Forbidden room. Reminds me of my nickname at camp, forbidden fruit. Unless I was in the sleeping bag, then it was..fruit roll-up.

    Trivia (2)

    • We learn that Karen built this "forbidden room" when she thought she was pregnant in the season 1 episode "The Unsinkable Mommy Adler." However, it turned out to be a false alarm.

    • This is Margot's first appearance since the season 7 episode "Partners".

    Allusions (2)

    • Jack: I sick--with the Evian flu. I shared a bottle of Evian with a stranger at the gym. Jack mistakes the Evian flu with the Avian flu, also known as the Bird flu.

    • Will: Ok, no more ordering from restaurants with cutesy names. 'Curry In A Hurry' I can deal with, but 'Tapas Don't Preach', that's just going too far. This is a reference to the Madonna song 'Papa Don't Preach'.
