Episode Summary

EDIT
A Buncha White Chicks Sittin' Around Talkin'
AIRED:
When Will hears his "biological clock" ticking, he shocks Grace by asking her to become the mother of his baby but when they meet with a therapist, Grace reveals that she's uneasy about the necessary sacrifices – and makes a startling revelation. Inspired by Will's "seize-the-day" quest, Jack and Karen are also moved to pursue their goals: for him, it's auditioning for a legitimate Broadway production; for her, it's visiting her imprisoned husband for a dreaded conjugal visit.moreless

      • Grace: Why would a baby need a backpack?
        Will: Maybe to carry stuff to his homies' cribs.

      • Karen: (to the security camera) So you're really gonna watch us have sex? Well, honey, it isn't gonna be pretty. The good news is, it isn't gonna be long either. And it should be pretty quick too! (laughs)

      • Karen: (answering the phone) Stanley? Hi, sweetheart. Oh, I know, it's been so long. I can't wait to run up and throw my arms two-thirds of the way around you.

      • Will: When my – when my friend Claire wanted my sperm so she could have a baby, you said no because it was your sperm! You practically planted a flag in my testicles!
        Grace: Well, that's because it is my sperm. But it's my safety sperm. You know, like the safety school? You – you apply to college, and it's the one school you know you're gonna get into just in case everything else falls through.

      • Grace: I wanna travel the world. Anywhere. Everywhere. You know, as long as it's clean and they speak English and it's safe.
        Will: You've just narrowed your world travel plans down to Denver.

      • Karen: They don't even let you turn the lights out. I can't have sex with Stan if I can see him! How am I supposed to have a conjugal watchin' that con jiggle?!

      • Grace: (to the therapist) Let me just get you up to speed. Um ... (points to Will) Gay. (points to herself) Straight. (points to Will) Gentile. (points to herself) Jew. (points to Will) 36. (points to herself) 29.
        Will: 33!
        Grace: 24.
        Will: Sold.

      • Jack: Come on, Kar. What do you think we should get, facials or colonics?
        Karen: Mmm, I don't know. Let's flip a coin for it. Heads or tails? Ha ha ha!

      • Grace: You know what? We should do all of these things.
        Karen: Oh, come on, honey, that's easy for you to say. All you gotta do is run a lousy marathon. Stan weighs 5,000 pounds. It's 26 miles just circling him!

      • Jack: I hope I don't have any regrets like that when I'm 75.
        Will: I know. How do you deal with it, Karen?
        Karen: Oh! Oh, Wilma. I have so much money.

      • Will: I guess that story's not so much wonderful as it is incredibly sad.
        Karen: You know what else is incredibly sad? Poor people with big dreams. Actually, that's not so much sad as it is incredibly funny.

      • A Chorus Line

        The music Jack is doing his dance audition to is "God, I Hope I Get It", the opening number from A Chorus Line.
