  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Lyle: (after Karen tells Lorraine her accent is nauseating) But darling, I speak with a British accent.
      Karen: For which I take Dramamine.

    • Karen: Darling, you have got to set some limits for your daughter. You have to tell her 'no' once in a while. Believe me, I know. I am raising two step-children of my own.
      Lyle: But your step-children went back to their mother.
      Karen: Yes, but when they came and begged to stay with me, in the home where they'd grown up, I said 'no'.

    • Lorraine: (reacting to Karen and Lyle kissing) Ugh. Couldn't you do that somewhere else? People eat in here. I don't want to see a sixty-year-old man making out with my father.

    • Lyle: I don't know why I slept so late. The last thing I remember is eating that oatmeal cookie.
      Karen: Oh. Rosie puts roofies in them. I hate raisins.
      Lyle: Anyway, I'm sorry I passed out. I was looking forward to making love to you.
      Karen: Oh, you did.

    • Jack: Thanks for walking me, Stuart. The streets are really tough out there for a boy alone. Ironically, they're tougher for two boys together.

    • Jack: Zandra, this is Will and Grace. They're my best friends. Her husband abandoned her. His never existed. Will and Grace, Zandra.
      Will: Hi. We actually met last year. I, uh, I took one of your classes. You helped me get through to a very honest place, really excavating those layers that kept me buried emotionally.
      Zandra: Oh, the crying fag!

    • Stuart: Well, listen. I'll match your best offer and I'll sweeten the deal with a tin of my world-famous peanut brittle.
      Will: Well, I don't know. I'm not sure...
      Grace: What, are you a fool? Take the brittle!

    • Jack: 'Cause the last time we saw the two of you, you were taking advantage of him to get back at his daughter, Lorraine. Meanwhile, you developed real feelings for him in the process, but he no longer cared.
      Karen: Oh, Jackie. I love when you recap.

    • Karen: Lorraine, could you please tone down that British accent. It's nauseating first thing in the morning.

    • Karen: (to Lorraine) Hit the road, you syphilitic toad!
      Lyle: Karen, if there is one thing I will not tolerate, it's rhyming insults.
      Lorraine: (to Karen) Sow.
      Karen: Cow.
      Lorraine: Runt.
      (Karen opens her mouth.)
      Lyle: Stop it!

    • Jack: Wait a minute. I brought you guys together. Shouldn't I get 10% commission?
      Will: You're right. And 10% of $2,200 is $2.20.
      (Jack thinks, nods, and walks away.)

    • Lyle: But how do I discipline a 32-year-old woman?
      Karen: Pretend she's two sixteen-year-olds!

    • Will: (knocking on Zandra's door) Hellooo.
      Grace: Why do you do that? Why do you put too many Os on your "hello"?
      Will: I don't knooooow.

    • Grace: (to Zandra) Hi, it is such an honor to meet you. We brought you chocolate, and flowers. Here are the flowers.

    • Karen: There are two things that I will not tolerate in this house. Racism and constipation.
      Rosario: Yeah, you're the Rosa Parks of pooping.

    • Grace: And you know how Ben & Jerry's gives 5% of its profits to charity? Well, we're going to spend 5% of our profits at Ben & Jerry's.

    • Rosario: (to Karen) What a coincidence. One knitting needle for each of your eyes.

    • Karen: Hey kids. I've got the best news, and I couldn't wait to share it with you, because you're last on my list.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Song: Something Good

      Karen and Lyle, having moved in together sing this song, which was written especially for the film version of The Sound of Music, one of two songs for which Richard Rodgers wrote both the music and lyrics. They do it in a slight parody of the scene between Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer in the film. It's interesting that in the same episode, Will bemoans the fact that Julie Andrews no longer sings, a reference to her throat operation.

    • Lyle: (to Rosario) Thank you, Manuel.
      This is an inside joke that references to John Cleese's TV series Fawlty Towers.
