  • Trivia

    • 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

    • 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)
