    • Jack: We are here at the apartment that sex forgot... to hear from two of Karen Walker's dearest, dearest, dearest-- line? Rosario: Friends. Jack: Friends! That's right. That is going on the gag reel! That is hilarious!

    • Jack: I met Karen's mother. She's not dead. She's a cocktail waitress. It turns out Karen's father died when she was seven. Oh, my God. Can you imagine what Karen looked like when she was seven years old? Cute little pumps, cute little martini, cute little pills.

    • Grace: Well, you're a loud pee'er. I swear it sounds like the last hour of The Perfect Storm in there.

    • Jack: Karen, I got you what I believe, pants-down, is the best birthday gift ever! Karen: Oh, honey, is it my new liver?

    • Jack: So, Lois Whitley tell us, what exactly is your relationship to one Miss Karen Walker? Lois: I'm her mother. (awed hush) Rosario: Santa Maria, it has a mother!

    • Karen: Sunny's out of bed? Finally! Von Bulow, get your ass in here! Sunny Von Bulow was a socialite who's been in a coma since 1980. Her husband was convicted of attempted murder as it's suspected that he injected Sunny with insulin which caused her unexplained coma. This story was the basis of the 1990 film Reversal Of Fortune.

    • Rosario: Take it easy, Martin Score-sissy. This is a reference to Academy Award-winning director Martin Scorsese.

    • Jack: I’d love to include your mother in my Project Queenlight. This is a pun on Project Greenlight, a contest and documentary series founded by Matt Damon and Ben Affleck to give aspiring screenwriters their start in show business.

    • Will: You know the most annoying thing about living here? (Jack enters) Jack: Hello. This is reminiscent of the '70s sitcom Laverne and Shirley, where Lenny and Squiggy would enter the girls' apartment with an annoying, "Hello".

    • Episode Title: Someone Old, Someplace New A play on the traditional wedding verse: Something old, something new. Something borrowed, something blue.
