  • About the episode

    It has great art direction.
  • Jack is the BEST in This one.

    When Jack Says "I would've died,died,died" and slams his hand on the the a GREAT
  • Series 5 finishes on a very funny note.

    From the start, the episode is hysterically funny. 'Dr. Morty' is introduced to Grace as the doctor going with Leo to Guatemala - and Jack and the gang go nuts over how beautiful she is. Jack is great as he harps on this! Poor Grace - no wonder she is neurotic about it. Then they board the boat to scatter two huge tins of Stan's ashes in the ocean - and Lorraine pops on board to cage some money from Karen. They laugh, fight and Karen (quickly followed by Rosario) falls in the ocean. Will and Jack having such a good time - that they end up in bed together! And Grace - trying to convince herself that nothing will happen to Leo - and then finding a love letter from 'Dr. Morty' to Leo - and ordering the boat to Guatemala! Very, very funny episode with all the characters at their best.moreless
  • Karen takes Will, Grace and Jack to St. Bardes on her Yaught to scatter Stan's ashes (two popcorn barrels full of his ashes)hilarious. Lorraine manages to get aboard and waits for Karen.moreless

    This was probably the funniest episode that i have seen. Karen says some of the funniest things when talking about stan. (Destroying an entire eco-system and creating a small chain of islands when doing cannon balls off the side of the boat). Hilarious. We also get to see Dr. Morty and find out what sort of competition Grace has. When Grace found the letter in Leo's bag i didn't think for a minute that he would sleep with Dr. Morty. I loved the very end, when Will and Jack, after a night of drinking, wake up in bed together, naked. And also when Lorraine throws Karen overboard and Rosie jumps in after her. Overall a very good season ender.moreless
  • -after Grace met Leo's co-worker..Jack goes"Aren't you dying?!You're husband is going to Guatamala with that!I would DIE!".....Grace says"...big whoop, I look good sometimes.And i let people cut infront of me in the line at the supermarket, well no, but imoreless

    I think that for the season finally it was perfect for telling the viewers whats in store for the characters in the next couple of seasons..and kept us guessing...was Leo gonna cheat on Grace..and if so would they stay together...it was intense...and Jack and Will maybe sleeping together...LOL...and Karen without Stan now...i just love this show..

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • In syndication there's a short scene cut during the opening of the episode. When Karen stops Lorraine and makes her give back the jewelry, Lorraine has hidden a necklace in her unmentionables. In the original airing, Karen says, 'And?' one more time, and yet another necklace falls out of the same place! This is why Karen calls Lorraine 'impressive'.

    • Music: "The Tide Is High" by Blondie.
      "Crocodile Rock" by Elton John

    • Nicollete Sheridan, who appears in this episode, auditioned for the part of "Grace," but Debra Messing got the part.

  • QUOTES (15)

    • Jack (after Grace meets the woman Leo is going to Guatemala with): Aren't you dying?! Your husband is going to Guatemala with that! I would die!
      Karen: I know! That bod! She could be in a Whitesnake video! Whoo!
      Jack: Just die!
      Will: That is some lucky flesh-eating virus that gets her.
      Rosario: What is she a doctor of? Foxology?
      (Everyone but Grace laughs.)
      Jack: (clapping) Die! Die! Die!
      Grace: Okay! I get it! She's gorgeous and she saves lives, big whoop. I look good sometimes. And I let people cut in front of me in line at the supermarket. Well, I haven't, but I've thought of it.

    • Will: I still can't believe Stan's gone. And I must say, it was a beautiful funeral.
      Jack: It was, and it really got me thinking. We were the best looking ones there.
      Will: I know. I mean, we were, like, the reason it was beautiful.

    • Karen: Well, well. I've never seen trash take itself out.
      Lorraine: Stuff it you bitter witch. Just getting the rest of my things before they start to reek of booze and anti-growth hormone.

    • Karen: Well then you won't mind if I take a look in that suitcase.
      Lorraine: Up yours. I may be a gold digger, a stripper and a whore, neither has no convictions, but I am no thief.
      Karen: I admire your principles. Almost as much as I admire my diamond ring in your hand. Give it up. (Karen puts her hand out as Lorraine gives her the ring. Lorraine turns to leave) And? (Lorraine turns back around and pulls a gold watch out of her bra and hands it to Karen) And? (Lorraine spreads her legs and jewelry falls to the ground) Wow. Impressive. Had we met years ago and under different circumstances, this might have been 'hello' instead of 'goodbye'.

    • Karen: Hey, lovers, I hate to interrupt the honeymoon, but we're just about to scatter Stan's ashes. And, Will, there are three things I want to tell you. One--I really appreciate your being here.
      Will: What are the other two?
      Karen: Oh, when you sit like that, I can see your man berries.

    • Grace: Sweetie, I am so excited about going to Guatemala with you. I'm a doctor without borders.
      Leo: Technically, you're not a doctor.
      Grace: Hey, I got a B in high school biology. Down there, I'm a doctor.

    • Will: I still have no idea why he thought we were a couple. Is that your third glass of wine?
      Jack: Are you counting?

    • Lorraine: I'll be leaving now. But I won't be leaving quickly... and why? Because I have a diamond tiara up my bum...

    • Grace: They put him in a popcorn can? Isn't that a little...unseemly?
      Karen: No more so than the cremation. It took four days and used so much power that all of Bergan County lost their air conditioning.

    • Jack: WOW! Is that ALL Stan?
      Rosario: No there's another can in the limo...

    • (After reading Dani's letter to Leo)
      Grace: Bitch. Driver, hang a right! We're going to Guatemala!
      (Boat's horn blows)

    • Karen (talking to Lorraine): You know, for a scheming, husband-stealing, skanky whore, you're good people.

    • Jack: Closure is important. Like, you know...I didn't watch Dawson's Creek this season. And now, all of a sudden, it's gone. And, uh... (voice breaking) I never got a chance to say good-bye.
      Will: It was a lot easier for me. I had like, eight of my "Creek" buddies over. We cried, we shared, we baked. It was healing. And now looking back on it, embarrassing.

    • Grace: I can't. I have to help people. You go have fun in your jacuzzi, and your crêpes, and your shopping. I'll be fine... sleeping in my own filth and waiting for food to drop down from the sky-- (Grace starts bawling)

    • Karen: (speaking on Stan) This was one of Stan's favorite spots. He spent many an afternoon doing cannonballs off the side of this boat. It destroyed an entire ecosystem and created that small chain of islands. (pointing to the horizon)

  • NOTES (2)


    • Karen: How the hell did you get here, Dame Judi Wench?

      This is a play on the well known English actress Dame Judi Dench, who won an Oscar in 1999 for her role in Shakespeare in Love.

    • Jack makes reference to Dawson's Creek and ironically enough, in the series finale of that show which aired the night before this episode, there was a mention of the show Will & Grace by a character on the show named Jack.
