  • The reason Grace was treated so badly and Karen was treated like a drunk Queen is because Grace is, Selfish, hostile when it comes to food, 29.4% mean, and it's always about Grace. I love the NBC show Will & Grace but I'm just pointing that out.moreless

    But it was kind of rude for the owner to treat Grace like that and if I was Grace I would have acted the same way as she did because in the real world they replace the food when you drop it most of the time. And it's all Grace's fault for breaking up Will's and Alan's friendship because she made Will realize he was Alan's boy toy. And if I was Will I would not have Judged him like Will did in this episode. I just thought of the perfect ending in the last scene Alan's replacement boy toy should have been Jack because Jack was wanting a Surger Daddy. I give this episode 5 out of 5 stars.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • While filming the part when Grace drops the noodles and then walks out, Debra almost fell on the first take. So on the second take they had the noodles cleaned before having her walk out.

    • At the beginning, Grace says the restaurant's name is "Happy Noodles", while the menu says "Happy Noodle". Yes, the difference between singular and plural. Still--it's a goof. Later, Grace said "Happy Noodles" again, while sitting on the couch telling her friends not to go there.

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Grace: So where's Will? I thought we were all supposed to have dinner together.
      Jack: He's probably out with Alan. Ugh, those two are meant for each other. Alan's got a fortune, and Will's got four chins.

    • Karen: Honey, these noodles are terrif'. And that's a big compliment coming from me. I'm Asian.
      Grace: They're amazing, aren't they? I just want to strip naked and writhe around in a giant take-out container full of them.
      Karen: (pushing her bowl away)And I guess I'm done.

    • Jack: What are we gonna do tomorrow night?
      Will: Well, I was gonna go to this art opening.
      Jack: Ooh, that sounds great. I'd love to join you.
      Will: It's not a person named "Art," you understand?
      Jack: (Sighs and rolls eyes.) Yes, I know.

    • Karen: This menu rocks! Every dish is more incredible than the last. Should I take the uppers down a notch, or do I actually care about noodles?

    • Grace: Evil exists when good men do nothing… about noodles.

    • Jack: Bertram asked for my number. And to remind him where he was.

    • (Grace is angrily yelling at the restaurant owner/waiter)
      Grace: You just made the biggest mistake of your life, my friend.
      Karen: Big mistake.
      Grace: I am not someone that you want to trifle with.
      Karen: You don't want to trifle with her.
      Grace: You are gonna rue the day that you ever messed with Grace Adler.
      Karen: Grace Adler is a mess.
      Grace: I know a lot of noodle lovers. And when I tell them what happened at Happy Noodle, they're gonna snub you hard and walk the extra ten feet to Lucky Noodle. Good-bye. (Grace leaves the restaurant)
      Karen: You hear that? She's bi!

    • Grace: (to Will) You've got a sugar daddy!
      Will: What?!
      Jack: This is so unfair! I would do a sugar daddy for a horse. Hell, I'd do a horse for a sugar daddy!

    • (Will puts on cowboy hat.)
      Grace: Wow!
      Will: Yeah?
      Grace: It takes me back to the old west. (Will giggles) The old West Village.

  • NOTES (1)


    • Jack: Come on, Karen. I'll be Lady and you be The Tramp.

      Jack and Karen eating the same noodle is a nod to the Disney movie Lady And The Tramp.

    • Grace: Evil exists when good men do nothing... about noodles.

      A funny reference to the comment by English philosopher, Edmund Burke. There is some disagreement about his exact words, but it is generally accepted as "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing". And he was certainly not talking about noodles!

    • Episode Title: A Gay/December Romance

      A reference to the common saying "A May-December romance", referring to an age disparity in a relationship.
