  • how my ex was back

  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (15)

    • Grace: Ok so when you and I broke up, it was for different reasons. I wanted to raise the kids Jewish; you wanted to sleep with men.

    • Will: How could you not tell me something like that? Grace: I was trying to protect you. Will: Oh, nice job of protection, Grace. If you were a condom, I'd be pregnant now.

    • Karen: Oh, Grace, thank God you're here! My head is spinning and not in a good way. Grace: Ok, Karen, calm down. Let's try a little experiment we did during my first year at the Fashion Institute. Karen: Ok, one kiss and then back to work.

    • Jack: If what's holding you back is your attraction to me, I just want you to know it will never happen. Okay? Let that free you to pursue other, lesser men. Will: Oh, Jack. There are no lesser men than you. Jack: Thank you.

    • Jack: (about Michael) How did he say I looked? Will: Like you'd put on a little ego.

    Trivia (4)

    • Chris Potter, who plays Michael, also played another gay character on "Queer as Folk" who was romantically involved with the character "Michael".

    • In this episode, we learn that Will and Grace were dating in college, but broke up for obvious reasons. We also learn that Michael started dating Andrew in January of 1997, two months after Will and Michael broke up, meaning that they had broken up in November of 1996.

    • The door in the middle of the hallway it now an apartment, despite the fact that a map of the building next to the elevator shows it as a supply closet, and that technically Will's small bathroom is behind it.

    • Will implies that he and Michael split up at the end of 1996, but when the Will & Grace show started in 1998, he said he'd only just split up with Michael.

    Allusions (1)

    • Episode Title: Hey La, Hey La, My Ex-Boyfriend's Back This is a clear reference to the 1963 song "My Boyfriend's Back" by the Angels. Also, after finding out Michael has come back into Will's life and Jack thinks that Michael wants Will again, Will and Jack also duet to the same song for a few lyrics.

      because of the love I have for him, I begged him but he refused until I

      explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should

      rather mail a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him

      back but I am the type that never believe in spell, I had no choice than to

      try it, I mailed the spell caster, he told me there was no problem that

      everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me

      before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day,

      that was around 4:00pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the

      call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened,

      that he wanted to return to me, that he love me so much. I was so happy and

      surprised. Since then I have made a promise that everybody I know will

      never have a relationship problem, that I will refer them to the spell
