Episode Summary

EDIT
Fagmalion Part Two: Attack of the Clones
AIRED:
Will and Jack continue their campaign to adapt Karen's awkward cousin Barry to his new lifestyle—but their flamboyant efforts to help him only remind Will of his own clumsy experiences when he came out in 1986. Elsewhere, Grace feels abandoned by Leo when he leaves for three weeks to offer his medical services to the needy in Africa.moreless

  • Favorite Barry episode

    8.0
    I thought that the character of Barry was a great guest role and I really think that this was his best episode. There were some really great comedic moments with Jack, Will, and himself.



    Overall this episode was particularly funny as well. Karen and her talking cookies had my cracking up!



    Karen: Now, come on, honey. I'm a little more together than you think…

    Leo: Hey, hey! Anyone order a Cookie bouquet?

    Karen: The TALKING COOKIES! They're BAAAAAAAACK!! Voice: Karen! Karen?

    Karen: Leave me alone.

    Voice: Kaa-ren!

    Karen: PLEASE! What do you cookies want from me?

    Voice: We're not the cookies. We're the pencil sharpener.

    Karen: Oh thank God. For a second there, I thought the cookies were talking to me!moreless

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • Jack: (to Will) What's the big deal? It's not like you just found out you're adopted... or Canadian.

      Eric McCormack, who plays Will Truman, was born and raised in Canada.

    • Music: "Dirrty" by Christina Aguilera.

    • Although unconfirmed and uncredited, many believe that the voice of the pencil sharpener at the end of the episode is that of Seth MacFarlane, creator and voice actor for the hit animated series Family Guy and American Dad. He did mention in an interview with IGN Entertainment that he once did a voiceover for Will & Grace but it ended up on the editing room floor.

    • Joan Jaffrey Poust (the passenger next to Grace) is series writer Tracy Poust's mother

  • QUOTES (12)

    • Will: (regarding Barry) Did you hear that? His first 'fabulous'.
      Jack: Our little baby's growing up!
      Will: I'm so proud!

    • Karen: The Human Rights Campaign Gala is in a month. It's the social event of the gay season. Well, next to the Republican National Convention.

    • Jack: Man, making someone gay is exhausting... I don't know how my mother did it.

    • Jack: (to Barry who is doing push-ups) Come on! Let's go, let's go! Push! Remember: No pecs, no sex!
      Barry: This all seems so superficial. Are gay guys only about bodies and faces?
      Jack: Absolutely not. They're only about bodies. Faces you can cover up with a cute hat or leather hood.

    • (Will and Jack are talking about how they are going to help Barry)
      Will: Okay, so we're clear on this, right? You're gonna be in charge of Barry's body. I'm gonna work on his mind. Jack: Okay. But if you have his mind and I have the body, who gets the hair? 'Cause it grows out of the mind, but it's still kinda part of the body.
      Will: That's a very good question. And that makes me feel even better about being in charge of the mind.

    • Grace: I love you.

    • Leo: Okay, I gotta go save some lives.
      Grace: Yeah, I gotta go save 50%. Barney's is having a sale.

    • Grace: Karen? Did you sync up my palm pilot?
      Karen: I sure did honey. I also optimized your hard drive and traced that printer problem to a bad ether-net cable. (shakes head laughing)

    • Will: Barry, what did I tell you to think when you get those thoughts?
      Barry: Judi, Liza, Barbra, Bette. These are names I shan't forget.
