  • Quotes (14)

    • Will: (after firing Helicopter pilot, then alluding to giving Pastry Chef weekends off so someone could take him to Montauk) On a completely unrelated note, do you think I could borrow your place in Montauk this weekend?
      Karen: Oh, sure honey. You can take the chopper.

    • Will: (about not firing Pastry Chef) I met him, and I watched him work. The man is a genius. He's an artist. I mean, would you fire Picasso? Karen: I would, and I did! He put both breasts on one side of my body. I wouldn't take it from Plastic Surgeon, and I wouldn't take it from him!

    • Grace: (about Nick's script) You want me to read it? Nick: Yeah, if you would. Grace: Oh, my God! I would love to! I'm just so flattered you'd ask. Karen: God, keep your pants on. He didn't propose.

    • Karen: OK, OK, I got one! I got one! Would you rather smell Will's armpit at 6:00 PM or his breath at 6:00 AM? Grace: That's so hard. Has he been to the gym? What did he eat the night before? Karen: Hour on the treadmill. Indian food. Grace: Ugh. How do I pick? They're both gonna smell of curry.

    • Pastry Chef: Karen, it was great sexing you just now. Will, it'll be great sexing you this weekend.
