    • Grace: I'm a little nervous. I'm breaking up with Ben tonight.
      Karen: What's the problem? He's not gay?

    • Karen: Hey, Wilma, you gotta come with me down to the club, Jack's bombing.
      Will: Of course he's bombing, he doesn't have me to make fun of. Forget it, I'm not gonna put myself in the position to be laughed at again. Same reason I don't throw a ball in front of people.
      Karen: Lord, you're thick. He's bombing because he's miserable. And he's miserable because you're still mad at him. He's sullen, he's morose, he's humorless... oh my god, he's you!

    • Jack: (Wearing a ruffled shirt) What do you think? Too gay?
      Will: Yeah. Definitely. But the shirt's fine.
      Jack: Oh, hold on! I got a cramp from not laughing!

    • Will: So how was your date with Ben? Grace: Amazing. We had this fantastic dinner at B.J., then we took one of those hansom cab rides around central park. It was so romantic, it didn't even bother me that the horse's tail kept hitting me in the mouth. Then he walked me home. It started to rain. It was like a movie. It was a perfect evening. Will: And now you're breaking up with him. Grace: Now I'm breaking up with him. Will: What happened? You know, yesterday you were adding milk to your mochacino to show me what pretty colors your kids would be.

    • Grace: Ben, I-I really, really want to break up with you. Ben: That's not what you want. Grace: Oh, but it is. Ben: No, it's not. Grace: Stop saying that! Just saying the opposite of what I'm saying is not a legitimate argument. Ben: Yes, it is.
