  • Quotes

    • Will: What are you doing?
      Grace: We always go to your apartment!
      Will: Because your apartment smells like asparagus and shoes!
      Grace: Right behind you.

    • Will: Why did I agree to this? This was a bad idea.
      Jack: Hello. Because I'm an expert. Will, I go on literally thousands of dates a year.
      Will: Jack that doesn't make you an expert it makes you an escort.

    • Will: No I'm not going to do this. Blind dates are a nightmare. It always ends up being with some guy yapping on about his two cats, while I spend the whole night trying to figure out a way to get out of there by faking my own death.

    • Jack: See, this arrogance is probably why your date with Charlie didn't work out.
      Will: I am not arrogant.
      Jack: Yes, you are. You've been acting superior to me all evening.
      Will: That's not arrogance, that's scientific fact.

    • Will: In spite of your trying to help Jack, you've actually... helped.

    • Jack: And what's behind that arrogance? A layer of fat then fear. Fear, rolled in fat, wrapped in arrogance.

    • Josh: Grace, I just want to be with you, so it really doesn't matter.
      Grace: Oh, Josh.
      Karen: Why doesn't this chair come with an air-sickness bag?
      Josh: (To Karen) You know, Karen, there's a pressure point at the base of your neck. I could work on it, to help you release some of that anger.
      Karen: (To Josh) Lay one paw on me and you'll be picking up two other rocks on 9th Avenue.

    • Ben: So, Will ... This is your lucky day. I found someone I think you should go out with.
      Jack: He'll take him.
      Will: Not--I dunno, blind dates.
      Ben: Now, trust me. He's perfect for you.
      Jack: He'll take him.
      Will: (To Jack) Slow down there, trigger. (To Ben) Look, what makes him perfect?
      Ben: He's gay.
      Jack: He'll take him.

    • Karen: Listen, I know that you're still mad at me about what happened with Josh, but when you think about it, really, honey, shouldn't you be mad at yourself for taking advice from somebody who was probably half in the bag at the time?

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Grace: He thinks that's beautiful. To me it's a little (adopts gruff, scary voice) 'The call is coming from inside the house'.
      This is a reference to the 1979 stalk/slasher movie When A Stranger Calls, in which a babysitter is plagued by anonymous phone calls, which the police finally discover are coming from inside the house belonging to the people for whom she is babysitting.

    • Karen: Now you tell me what it is you don't like about the talented Mr. Wimply, and I'll tell you how to change it.
      A quick and funny reference to the film The Talented Mr. Ripley.

    • Karen: Woah! Got Skirt?
      A funny reference to the "Got Milk" commercials.
