    This is a wonderful story on how DR. AKUE help me. I never believed in spell casting but After 3 years of marriage my husband left me because I lost my womb, and i was unable to give birth to children. I felt like my life has come to an end, and i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time, but thanks to this spell caster called DR. AKUE whom i met online after my friend Brown Sharon told me how He also helped her to bring back her husband in less than 2 days. I believed her and decided to give DR. AKUE a try and i contacted him on his email and explained my problems to him. He laughed and told me that In less than 2 days, my Husband will come back for me again, and that he will restore my womb and i will give birth once He is done. At first i thought it was a lie but i took courage and believed as DR. AKUE has said and it did happen just as this Great spell caster said, My husband called me and was crying, apologizing for forgiveness.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • An alternate ending to this episode involved Bill (Neil Patrick Harris) leaving the Welcome Home project and naming Jack as his successor, claiming Jack made a better heterosexual role model than Bill.

    • Val appears to have moved from 15F to 12E (which actually makes more sense, given that 155 Riverside Drive is a 12-story building).

    • Karen says that she's hiding in Rosario's room because it's the only room Stan doesn't know about. Yet we know from the season two episode "Election" that there are several security cameras in the room. Jack even waves to Stan in the camera in the statue, so Stan definitely knows about the room.

  • QUOTES (11)

    • Grace: (When Val comes in) Surprise!
      Val: What are you two doing in here?
      Grace: We thought there might be gas leak in here.
      Val: Then why did you yell 'Surprise'?
      Will: We didn't say it was a nice surprise.

    • Val: My ex-husband wanted me to get a boob-job. That's why I got rid of him. Well, that and the fact that he was sleeping with his dental hygienist.
      Grace: Why is it always the hygienist? What is it? Is it the white uniforms? The latex gloves?
      Val: I think it's because they're whores.

    • Karen: Oh my God listen to me, I'm a funny lesbian. I'm Ellen!

    • Karen: Honey, this is a cult! Yeah. Like the Moonies or the homeless.

    • Grace: Oh my god. They're pulling her whole face off. Ew, ew, ew!
      Val: ew, I love this show!
      Grace: Can you imagine doing that to your face? I would never do plastic surgery. It's gross.
      Val: I know. It's so demeaning.
      Grace: Pathetic.
      Val: Totally. I might do my eyes.
      Grace: Well, sure that's medical.

    • Jack: There are no straight men, only men who haven't met Jack.

    • Grace: I think the last time I saw you, you were smashing my face into the carpet.
      Val: Well, it looks like that burn above your eye went away.
      Grace: Actually, I just stopped plucking in that area.

    • Grace: Uh, ok, Val, um, I don't know how to say this, but, uh... Where did you get the... Snow globes?
      Val: They belong to my ex-husband. He loved them more than anything. So naturally, I made sure that I got them in the settlement.
      Grace: So you sort of got him by the globes.

    • Will: Ooh, tempting. No, we're going to a club. (Enter Elevator)
      Val: Oh, really?
      Jack: It's all you can eat after midnight.
      Will: I didn't know they served food.
      Jack They don't.
      Will & Jack: Hee hee hee!

    • Karen: They're trying to make gay people straight! Good Lord! Don't they know what that'll do to the fall line?

    • Karen: And it looks like your new sweetie has turned his back on homosexuals. And not in the good way.

  • NOTES (2)

    • In this episode Neil Patrick Harris plays a formerly gay man trying to recruit others into the heterosexual lifestyle. Six years later he came out of the closet in People Magazine.

    • The Christian organization "Focus on Family" objected to this episode, stating that it made a mockery of the struggles of ex-gay men and women.


    • Karen: Oh my God listen to me, I'm a funny lesbian. I'm Ellen!
      The one-liner from Karen is a reference to one of the first shows with a gay character, Ellen.

    • Title: Girls, Interrupted
      The title of the show is a take on the 1999 Winona Ryder and Angelina Jolie film Girl, Interrupted. The show also makes reference to Jolie on a Harley.

    • Karen: Well, look at 'em go. I haven't seen a stampede like this since Pamplona.
      Pamplona is a Spanish town, famous for its "Running of the Bulls", part of the Los Sanfermines festival.
