  • how my ex was back

    8.5
    Is BALAYA you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship,I

    promise problems will be solve immediately. After being in

    relationship with him for seven years, He left me, i did everything

    possible to bring him back back but all was in vain. I wanted him back

    because of the love I have for him, I begged him but he refused until I

    explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should

    rather mail a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him

    back but I am the type that never believe in spell, I had no choice than to

    try it, I mailed the spell caster, he told me there was no problem that

    everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me

    before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day,

    that was around 4:00pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the

    call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened,

    that he wanted to return to me, that he love me so much. I was so happy and

    surprised. Since then I have made a promise that everybody I know will

    never have a relationship problem, that I will refer them to the spell

    caster to help them. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • Chris Potter, who plays Michael, also played another gay character on "Queer as Folk" who was romantically involved with the character "Michael".

    • In this episode, we learn that Will and Grace were dating in college, but broke up for obvious reasons. We also learn that Michael started dating Andrew in January of 1997, two months after Will and Michael broke up, meaning that they had broken up in November of 1996.

    • The door in the middle of the hallway it now an apartment, despite the fact that a map of the building next to the elevator shows it as a supply closet, and that technically Will's small bathroom is behind it.

    • Will implies that he and Michael split up at the end of 1996, but when the Will & Grace show started in 1998, he said he'd only just split up with Michael.

  • QUOTES (15)

    • Grace: Ok so when you and I broke up, it was for different reasons. I wanted to raise the kids Jewish; you wanted to sleep with men.

    • Will: How could you not tell me something like that?
      Grace: I was trying to protect you.
      Will: Oh, nice job of protection, Grace. If you were a condom, I'd be pregnant now.

    • Karen: Oh, Grace, thank God you're here! My head is spinning and not in a good way.
      Grace: Ok, Karen, calm down. Let's try a little experiment we did during my first year at the Fashion Institute.
      Karen: Ok, one kiss and then back to work.

    • Jack: If what's holding you back is your attraction to me, I just want you to know it will never happen. Okay? Let that free you to pursue other, lesser men.
      Will: Oh, Jack. There are no lesser men than you.
      Jack: Thank you.

    • Jack: (about Michael) How did he say I looked?
      Will: Like you'd put on a little ego.

    • Karen: I'm 32 years old and...what have I done with my life?
      Grace: Well, for one thing, misplaced the better part of a decade.

    • Jack: I can't pee in public bathrooms.
      Will: Why not? You do everything else in them.

    • Will: Jack, I had a 7-year relationship. You had a restraining order from the U.S. Gymnastic team.

    • Will: I've got my chimp on a NordicTrack. He gets in his little suit, hops on, watches the TV. He loves it. But ... enough about Jack.

    • Grace: Well, um, you know, we should really go. Because that way we won't ... be here.

    • Michael: Yes, gay-ja vu.

    • Karen: I could ... make a fresh pot.
      Grace: You don't know how.
      Karen: I could... fax something.
      Grace: You don't know how.
      Karen: I could--
      Grace: You don't know how.

    • Grace: Um, um, um, Karen, ok. Uh, you know what? I really think that you're just stretched too thin as it is. I mean, you have nails to file, Vogues to read, and those pills aren't gonna take themselves.

    • Karen: I went out for drinks last night with the girls. It was just me, Paloma, Marlo, and Mr. Blackwell.

    • Grace: Look, I didn't tell you that he called because the last thing I wanted to do was to put you in an uncomfortable position--
      Will: Grace, Grace! You should do this. You were Michael's friend, too. You hung out together, you were Buddhists for a week together. I mean, you gave him mono in a manner I'm still not entirely clear on. It's fine.

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Episode Title: Hey La, Hey La, My Ex-Boyfriend's Back

      This is a clear reference to the 1963 song "My Boyfriend's Back" by the Angels. Also, after finding out Michael has come back into Will's life and Jack thinks that Michael wants Will again, Will and Jack also duet to the same song for a few lyrics.
