  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Beverley: (as Will and Jack and the lesbians dance on the dance floor) I can't believe this, all this... homosexual activity! Roland let's just close our eyes... and sway. (begins dancing with the man behind him)

    • Jack: Where the hell are all the queers you promised us, Karen?! God, even the waiters are straight. It's unnatural.
      Karen: Oh, honey. Black, white, gay, straight--What's the difference? We all finish ourselves off in the end anyway.

    • Karen: Oh, I wonder if my date's here yet. Oh--check out the chunk of a hunk in the black suit with the big, white smile. Oh, I hope that's him.
      Will: That's a piano.

    • Beverly: As social chair of this club and board member of the Shelter Island Republican Party I can assure you two men will never dance together on this floor.
      Jack: I'm sorry, I'm a wee bit confused. How do I put this delicately...you're a raging 'mo yourself, no?

    • Scott: (Holding Beverley) If you bother the woman I love one more time, I'm gonna rip out your tiny arms and give them to her on a charm bracelet.
      Karen: Honey, no one's ever offered to dismember a dwarf and make jewlery out of them for me before.

    • Grace: (After finding out Nick works for a greeting card company.) OK, I'm going to try and be careful here about what I say next because I don't want to offend you, but your job is lame.
      Nick: And ah... I'm guessing by the rows of fabric and the tassels you work for Unicef?
      Grace: At least I don't perpetuate the myth that if you're not in love in the middle of February, that there's something wrong with you.
      Nick: And the real myth must be that February 14th is the only day you're unpleasant and bitter.
      Grace: (in a deep voice) Woah.

    • Jack: I don't know Karen, you gotta be careful. You can't trust people you meet on the internet. I went on a date with this guy I met online and he seemed really nice, but at the end of the evening... I stole $200 from his wallet.

  • Notes

    • This episode introduces Edward Burns as Nick in a three-episode story arc that was initially supposed to open up for a longer storyline between Grace and Nick, but was changed before final scripting was published.

  • Allusions

    • Nick: So I guess this makes us star-crossed lovers.
      A quick reference to a line from William Shakespeare's play Romeo & Juliet.

    • Karen: First Anita Bryant, now this.
      A quick and funny reference to singer and conservative activist Anita Bryant. After airing publicly her views on homosexuality and AIDS, she was targeted by gay activists in a boycott of the orange juice industry. She eventually lost her job as their spokesperson due to this.
