    • Jack: You're gonna be a great dad because for the last ten years, you've been a great one to me.
      Will: Wanna stop for ice cream?
      Jack: Nah.
      Will: Wanna go to a bar and look at hot guys?
      Jack: (quietly) I love you, Daddy.

    • Jack: You don't want my help! I told you what my mother would do when I was crying!
      Will: Jack, I'm not going to leave this child in a laundromat!

    • Jack: Big news! Joe and Larry have invited us to the South Hamptons for a man-tan reunion. Will: Joe and Larry? You're kidding. Jack: No, it's gonna be wild! Oh, my God! You remember their last party? Will: Yeah. I got so drunk, all I remember is-- making out with some guy in the hot tub. Jack: Oh, my God, so did I! (Will and Jack pause...) Will: I don't really remember that. Jack: I don't. Anyways, I'm so excited! Gosh, it's been so many years. I hope I can pull off a thong. Grace: Isn't the point of these weekends to pull off someone else's?

    • Grace: (trying to make Karen feel better) You are such a sexy, beautiful, vibrant woman. Anyone would be lucky to have you. Karen: Are you hitting on me? Grace: What? No! What are you... Karen: You are! Oh my God. You're a big lez!

    • Karen: (to Ben and Grace) Well, well, well. Look what the cat cleaned up, showered, exfoliated, powered, lipsticked, Guccied and dragged in. Ben: Karen Walker, you know I thought I saw a waiter outside weeping. Now it all makes sense.

    • Gregory Hines has shaved his goatee and changed his hair since last we saw him as Ben because he was filming Bojangles at the time, a movie about the life of Bill "Bojangles" Robinson.

    • Look hard at the baby when Will is holding it. It's a fake. There is an outtake on the Season 3 DVD where you can really see it.

    • Karen's drink vanishes between takes with Grace. This is because they forgot a line and had to add it back in.
