    • Grace: (When Val comes in) Surprise!
      Val: What are you two doing in here?
      Grace: We thought there might be gas leak in here.
      Val: Then why did you yell 'Surprise'?
      Will: We didn't say it was a nice surprise.

    • Val: My ex-husband wanted me to get a boob-job. That's why I got rid of him. Well, that and the fact that he was sleeping with his dental hygienist. Grace: Why is it always the hygienist? What is it? Is it the white uniforms? The latex gloves? Val: I think it's because they're whores.

    • Karen: Oh my God listen to me, I'm a funny lesbian. I'm Ellen!

    • Karen: Honey, this is a cult! Yeah. Like the Moonies or the homeless.

    • Grace: Oh my god. They're pulling her whole face off. Ew, ew, ew! Val: ew, I love this show! Grace: Can you imagine doing that to your face? I would never do plastic surgery. It's gross. Val: I know. It's so demeaning. Grace: Pathetic. Val: Totally. I might do my eyes. Grace: Well, sure that's medical.

    Notes (2)

    • In this episode Neil Patrick Harris plays a formerly gay man trying to recruit others into the heterosexual lifestyle. Six years later he came out of the closet in People Magazine.

    • The Christian organization "Focus on Family" objected to this episode, stating that it made a mockery of the struggles of ex-gay men and women.

    Trivia (3)

    • An alternate ending to this episode involved Bill (Neil Patrick Harris) leaving the Welcome Home project and naming Jack as his successor, claiming Jack made a better heterosexual role model than Bill.

    • Val appears to have moved from 15F to 12E (which actually makes more sense, given that 155 Riverside Drive is a 12-story building).

    • Karen says that she's hiding in Rosario's room because it's the only room Stan doesn't know about. Yet we know from the season two episode "Election" that there are several security cameras in the room. Jack even waves to Stan in the camera in the statue, so Stan definitely knows about the room.
