Jack: Karen, this isn't your purse, it's a Dora the Explorer lunchbox! (hands box to Will) Will: You just mugged a little girl...a hungry, frightened little girl. Karen: Are you saying I don't know a dwarf mugger in a plaid skirt and braids when she skips past me? Jack: I don't know Karen, this is strikingly similar to last week when you thought that woman stole your fur and you came home with a seeing eye dog around your neck. Karen: Yeah and that fur crapped all over my carpet too! Jack: Well, just in case we need to go back to the school and make sure nobody's missing a lunchbox. (They all turn to Grace and see that she is eating the sandwich that was in the lunchbox) Grace: What? It's egg salad. What kid wants that?

Do you fake mental illness? Grace: I don't have to! This crazy is all real!!!

  • Jack: Well, you know how I assert my individuality by wearing a gently satirical button every day? Karen: Oh, of course! Who could forget your "God is coming and she is pissed" button? (Laughs) God as a woman....it's funny 'cause it's blasphemous.

  • Karen: So, is this what the world looks like? Everything is so crisp and clear and beautiful. (To man in chair) Oh, except for you. And you. Jack: Oh, you gotta get this guy to turn around, Karen. Karen: (Snaps fingers to get other man's attention, he turns) Oh, yeah, honey, definitely you. Oh, seeing is a very powerful thing. You have to be very careful exactly-- (Karen looks in the mirror) AAH! Oh, my God! I'm a monster! Damn you, Doctor! (Takes off glasses) Damn you and your evil, futuristic vision glasses! Doctor: You know they've had glasses since the 16th century. Jack: Yeah, um, she didn't like wearing them then either.
