  • Will teaches Karen how to drive with... interesting results. Jack worries Stuart is cheating on him after seeing him with another man at the movie theater.

    I'm amazed at no matter which combination of characters have a story together that the episode is always strong. Grace and Jack are adorable together at the movie theater while wondering if Stuart is cheating on Jack. Jack, predictably, makes a huge scene, especially once he discovers who cute the guy with Stuart is.

    Will and Karen fall into the tried and true lawyer vs. client relationship is always producing a great dynamic. Will's smugness at the cop making a mistake on the speeding ticket he gave Karen is a little tiresome, but his interaction with the cop, played wonderfully by Bobby Canavale, is adorable and sweet. Debra Messing is hysterically funny when singing "Hey Ya" by Outcast and the neighbors call to shut her up. Her pregnancy is showing quite a bit by now, but I'm not as bothered by it being covered up as most people.

    All in all, a solid episode, but nothing to write home about.moreless

  • QUOTES (11)

    • Vince: License and registration, please.
      Karen: Certainly, officer. (Opens her jacket) Meet license and registration. (Jiggles one breast, then the other) We're very sorry, officer! Won't do it again!
      Will: You should've seen her at customs when they asked for her passport.

    • Will: (about Karen) Listen, officer, I realize she was going a little over the speed limit..And that's a ticket you're writing.
      Vince: Well, it isn't a poem about springtime in Cincinnati.
      Will: Why Cincinnati?
      Vince: First town I thought of. Actually, the second. But nobody would write a poem about Newark. Nothing rhymes with it.
      Will: What rhymes with Cincinnati?
      Vince: Just take the ticket.

    • Grace: When he was 17, he donated some sperm because he wanted to buy a leather coat. We used to call it his member-only jacket. But, you know, now that there's an actual life involved, we just call it a jacket.

    • Jack: (to Grace) Did you see that? That guy just whispered something to Stuart. I didn't trim hair out of that ear so some young hottie could whisper sweet nothings in it without getting hair in his mouth. I can't take it! I'm gonna go talk to him.
      Grace: Wait. Before you do anything, count to ten.
      Jack: Why?
      Grace: 'Cause Will said you couldn't.

    • Will: Watch out for that nun.
      Karen: (steering toward her) I'm on it!
      Will: No, no no!

    • Karen: Oh my gosh. That is the single scariest thing that has ever happened to me and I've seen Rosario at the beach!

    • Vince: You know how fast you were going?
      Karen: How could I, I was inside it?

    • Will: Oh, damn, it's a cop!
      Karen: I'm on it!
      Will: No no don't speed up!

    • Karen: Uh, honey, I don't know what century you're living in but women aren't allowed to drive.
      Will: You don't know how to drive, do you?
      Karen: Why would I? Besides, someone's got to be the designated drinker!

    • Karen: Oh, honey, I love driving. It's exhilarating. Let's take her up!
      Will: Karen, this isn't a flying car.
      Karen: It is when you've smoked as much as I have.

    • Jack: (to Stuart) I can't believe you have a son!
      Grace: Jack, did you tell Stuart that you have a son?
      Jack: No, but that's just because I forgot I had one.
