Episode Summary

EDIT
Girl Trouble
AIRED:
Grace's delight in having a bright intern whom she can mentor turns into horror when the young woman re-makes herself into the spitting image of sassy, brassy Karen -- and that's at least one too many Karens to handle. Meanwhile, Will and Jack volunteer to act out scenes for a gay sensitivity seminar for the local police but the peaceful intent is lost when they tussle with two lesbian cast members who strongly object to their non-inclusive, sexist language.moreless

  • Love this episode.

    The part when Jack and Will get into a physical fight towards the end is priceless because you don't get to see that often on comedy shows where characters get into BAD fights. Then, of course, the part with Grace and Karen and Grace's intern was funny again. It's not something that you would expect, for Grace to be jealous of someone wanting to be just like Karen.



    I loved how this episode was written. It was clever of the writers to put Will and Jack in scenes together and Grace and Karen together rather than Will and Grace and Jack and Karen.moreless
  • A step up from the last episode.

    Now this is what I want to see out of this series. Following a middle of the line episode this one cranks it up to being great once again. The chemistry between the ensemble really shines through in this installment. I enjoyed the Grace story about her intern immensely and Karen’s involvement makes it ever funnier. The Will and Jack story is also pretty good, and the final bit between Will and the police officer is pricelessly hilarious. I really applaud the writers of this series because when performing to their full potential they can hang among the greatest in sitcom history. Recommended.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Grace: This is really good. What is this?
      Gillian: You know, just some sketches I did for my ex-boyfriend's place.
      Grace: It's really good. Your ex is gonna love it. Ok, but why all the mirrors?
      Gillian: I want him to see his chubby cheating ass from all angles.

    • Karen: Unless you're served in a frosted glass, never come within four feet of my lips.

    • Karen: Grace, we talked about the beret. Patty Hearst couldn't even pull one off and she had money and a gun.

    • Jack: (Reading from script) I understand. I learned a valuable lesson today. Everyone deserves to be treated with a little respect. Even mean lesbian kite sellers.
      Annie: Oh, that's--!
      Will: (To Jack) You are this close to losing your post rehearsal yogurt.
      Jack: That's the line, that's what's written here.
      Will: Yeah, that's because you wrote it. In lip liner!
      Jack: At least one of us brought some. (Stares at Terry and Annie)
      Terry: I don't think that's funny.
      Jack: Why? 'Cause Ellen Degeneres didn't say it?

    • Will: What's with the voice?
      Jack: (Dramatic) I was trying to find my character and I came up with this voice.
      Will: Well, Angela Lansbury wants it back.

    • Karen: Listen, get your ass over to Bergdorf's and buy her an I'm-Sorry gift, something she'd like, but nothing red or orange. Or yellow or green or stripes or plaids or zippers or epaulets. Or fur or feathers or sequins or pleats.

    • Will: You are, as of now, the most offensive person in this building. And I'm including Mr. Open Robe with his itchy bits on the tenth floor.
      Jack: Name one thing I did wrong.
      Will: Wha-- One thing? Ok, let's see. You haven't once called them by their names, preferring instead to address them as "mister" or "señor." You've mooed, you've sung the Lumberjack Song. And then you told some joke about the Indigo Girls and a Mexican restaurant that I still don't understand. I could try to appeal to you as a thoughtful gay man, but, ironically, that would be fruitless.

    • Jack: Sorry I called you a tight-ass cyber-sissy.
      Will: Oh, that's ok. Sorry I called you a shallow, youth-obsessed, prancing cabaret queen.
      Jack: You didn't call me that.
      Will: Well, I meant to.

  • NOTES (3)

    • This episode was filmed on October 11, 2000 at CBS Studio Center.

    • Max Mutchnick had to explain the attitude Jack has in this episode to the press after negative reviews came back from several critics.  There was dialogue cut for time in which Jack tells Will why he hates the two kite shop owners, Terry and Annie; they caught Jack trying to shoplift twine at their kite store. Jack does not hate lesbians, just these two. The footage has never been replaced, not even on the Season 3 DVD.
