    • Grace: Hey do we have any beer?
      Will: No, I drank it after I mowed the lawn.

    • Karen: Attention, weaklings! This woman [Grace] is a fraud. She is not an alcoholic.
      Val: Nonsense! That's a booze face if I've ever seen one!
      Grace: Karen, what are you doing here?
      Karen: Grace, I'm here to help you. And the first step is admitting you do not have a problem!

    • Grace: (attending an AA meeting for the food) Um.  Hi.  I'm Grace, and I'm actually not--
      Director: Sorry I'm late.  I just had to finish making my hot cocoa with homemade marshmallows.
      Grace(quickly) I'm Grace and I'm an alcoholic.

    • Val: I know we've had some harsh words in the past. I hope you'll forgive me. It was the drink talking.
      Karen: Yeah, well now my drink's talking. And you know what it's saying? 'Drink me! I make life more fun! Everyone from a high school kid to a bum on the street knows that!'

    • Karen: The only thing that's horrible about Grace is her hair and her clothes. Val: I know, it's like there's no safe place to rest your eyes.

    • Jack: Just be grateful you have a divorce to talk about. Gays aren't even allowed that right. That's why I'm voting for Jim Carrey. Will: I'm sure as leader of the free world his pet detective skills will come in handy. This is a pun on the 2004 Democratic presidential candidate, John Kerry, who supported gay marriage, and on actor Jim Carrey and his debut film, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective.
