    • Grace: I have a chance to design Nathan Barry's house.
      Jack: The publicist? That man RUINED my career!
      Will: Wait, wait. You had a career and you didn't tell me?

    • Will: I was just playing with you. Nathan: How boring. Do you enjoy playing games? Will: Yeah, I'm a big game player. One of my favorites is the 'Be Nice to Waiters' game. Yeah, if you win, you get to not go to hell.

    • Jack: Politically, I'm tolerant of the heterosexual lifestyle, but the actual act is rather revolting.

    • Karen: Oh, honey, you still doing the law thing? Will: Honey, you still doing the 'I married for love' thing? Karen: No.

    • Will: (to Grace about Nathan) I hope you get the job, but this guy is a creep. My god, he put the 'noxious' in obnoxious. Actually, he puts the 'ob' in it, too.

    Trivia (1)

    • Pay attention to the scene after Jack kisses Karen. After Jack and Will leave, and Karen faints, you can hear her hit the soft padding on the floor instead of the floor itself.
