  • Quotes

    • Will: (To the delivery men helping Grace) If you're waiting for her to tip you, you're going to be waiting a really long time.
      Grace: (after a pause) Well, didn't you hear the man?

    • Will: She wants you to go, dude.
      Leo: Dude?
      Will: I get really straight when I'm angry.

    • Jack: Grace, I'm really sorry about Leo. You know, Stuart and I broke up also because of infidelity. But I understand why you cheated, and I know why I did. Cheating feels good.
      Grace: Leo cheated on me, dumb ass.
      Jack: Well, trust me. He really enjoyed himself.

    • Grace: Hey, Will. Look what I got.
      Will: Isn't that Leo's massage chair?
      Grace: Not anymore. He cheated on me. Which gives me the constitutional right to wait 'til he goes to work. Then sneak in and take as much as two Ukranian day laborers can carry.

    • Jennifer Lopez: How's married life treating you?
      Karen: Oh, it lasted 20 minutes.
      Jennifer Lopez: And that's short, right?

    • Grace: Did you think I wouldn't find out?
      Leo: You found out because I told you.
      Grace: I would've found out myself. I know people.
      Leo: In Cambodia?
      Grace: Yes Cheater, in Cambodia!

    • Lopez: I got you a job as a dancer for Janet Jackson.
      Jack: JANET JACKSON?! That's way better than dancing with... I mean that's okay!

  • Allusions

    • Karen: (After J. LO. signs Karens "bra") I call it Hard Rack Cafe.

      This is a reference to the restaurant chain Hard Rock Cafe.

    • Jack: And look at you Grace, you're magically delicious!
      Karen: Manly, yes--but I like her, too!
      A funny reference to the old commercials for Lucky Charms cereal and Irish Spring soap, both with Irish themes.
