Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Karen wants a child but no one knows.

    My favorite parts of this episode was two different ones I currently remember. One, is the part when Jack asks Karen to repeat what she said when she said "forbidden room" but he asks her to repeat it and she looks at him quickly and says "The forbidden room" ! In a kind of harsh voice. My other favorite moment that I remember when was Jack asks where some of the doors lead and he says to Karen about one of the doors something like "Oh, is this one of those trick doors where you open and walk through, then fall off the building? This episode was great.moreless

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Jack: I sick--with the Evian flu. I shared a bottle of Evian with a stranger at the gym.

    • Will: That's my Grace. You're a good person. Just like Jake Gyllenhaal. I don't know, sometimes when I look at my screen saver, I think... 'Yeah, you're thinking about me, too.'
      Grace: You know, I used to be that way about Sarah Jessica Parker. But then, we shared an elevator ride together and she poked me in the boob with an umbrella and didn't apologize.
      Will: Were you trying to hug her?
      Grace: That's not important.

    • Jack: Wow... so dramatic. Forbidden room. Reminds me of my nickname at camp, forbidden fruit. Unless I was in the sleeping bag, then it was..fruit roll-up.

  • NOTES (0)


    • Jack: I sick--with the Evian flu. I shared a bottle of Evian with a stranger at the gym.

      Jack mistakes the Evian flu with the Avian flu, also known as the Bird flu.

    • Will: Ok, no more ordering from restaurants with cutesy names. 'Curry In A Hurry' I can deal with, but 'Tapas Don't Preach', that's just going too far.

      This is a reference to the Madonna song 'Papa Don't Preach'.
