  • Episode Description
  • Rather than be apart on Thanksgiving Day, Will and Grace join Jack and Karen for a festive holiday motor tour of their respective dysfunctional families, including Grace's domineering mother as well as Will's willful mom and Jack's stepdad -- with unsettling results. Meanwhile, back home, a waiting Rosario bastes and tastes their juicy turkey.

  • Quotes (20)

    • Karen: (To Stan through the visitor's window) Now it's your turn to put your boobs on the glass! C'mon!

    • Karen: (To a bottle of pills) Thanks for comin'. (Aunt Honey notices Karen with the pills and approaches.) Aunt Honey: I saw that. What are you taking? Give me one. I've got a really bad back. Karen: Hmm. (Karen reads the bottle.) Well, I guess these things can be used for pain. (To Aunt Honey) So, how'd you hurt your back? (Karen checks out Aunt Honey's clothes.) Runnin' away from good taste?

    • Will: What exactly did Stan say? Karen: He said he wasn't sure how long he was gonna be in there and it wasn't fair to ask me to wait for him. He wants me to be sexually satisfied while he's in prison. I don't know why, he certainly didn't care while he was out.

    • Will: Rosario, thanks for coming. Look, we're gonna be out all afternoon, so it's really important you gotta baste the turkey like, every 20 minutes or so. Rosario: (To Karen) You told me we were going to Tony Roma's and then to a late movie. Karen: Oh, we're going to a movie. Yeah, it's a dirty flick. It's called Rosie Does Dishes. Now get those paws into a couple of oven mitts. Rosario: How about I get them into a handful of your hair and play spin-the-drunk?

    • Will: Hey, did you get my message about Thanksgiving at my place? Jack: Yeah, about that. Um, I can't make it. I'm spending Thanksgiving with the Chung-Poviches and the Gurley Browns. They will get crazy if I try to back out on it. Will: What about in the real world? Jack: Oh, in the real world, I'm available, yeah. But you have to come with me to my stepfather's hotel. He's in town for, like, the first time in forever, and he wants to meet Elliot. Will: No. No, I don't want to go. This is my anti-family year. Jack: Please! My mom is making me. If I don't go, she won't pay half my rent. Will: I pay half your rent. Jack: Yeah, so does Karen.
