Who was the Episode MVP ?

No results found.
  • Grace finds out that Karen doesn't like Leo...

    The main story has Karen telling Grace she doesn't like Leo. The best scene is where Karen plays tennis with Beverley Leslie (the always funny Leslie Jordan) against Grace and Leo - and Karen belts the ball over-and-over-again at Leo. Poor Leo is left clutching his crotch while Beverley shouts out 'take that you giant'! Also interesting is Grace pretending to be a rich Irish woman in Karen's exclusive club.

    The other story has Will checking on his mother and finding her depressed about her broken marriage. Jack first suggests that Marilyn come with Will and Jack to 'Mama Mia' - which in turns leads to Jack suggesting that Marilyn shift in with Will. This is one of the few episodes that Jack actually uses his brains and it also leads to the story-arc with Will and Marilyn sharing the apartment and having some very hysterical stories in the future.moreless

  • QUOTES (10)

    • Jack: (About Will's mom) Why don't we take her with us?
      Will: Oh, she hates musicals. I took her to see Les Mis last year, and all she said about it was, "Please dear, the poor never sing that much."

    • Karen: I hate Leo.
      Grace: What?
      Karen: Yep. Hate him. Hate, hate, hate him!

    • Marilyn: Oh look, you have my favourite movie, Splendor in the Grass. Hmm, that's careless. They left out the G-R-. Shall I pop it in?
      Will: Ironically, that's the first line in the movie.

    • Jack: You really love ironing, don't you?
      Will: I do love ironing.

    • Will: I can't believe you guys are playing tennis today. It's a beautiful, sunny day, you should be at the movies.
      Grace: I know. I'd love to be inside, but Karen invited me to her country club.
      Leo: Yeah, I'm surprised Karen belongs to a club that lets Jews in.
      Grace: Oh, actually, I may have to sign in as Kelly O'Reilly.

    • Will: Hey. Leo, be honest with me... How do you feel when you see a pillowcase this perfect?
      Leo: I feel excited, and then sad. Wait, scratch "excited."

    • Will: (to the iron) What is it about putting metal to cotton that makes me feel like a man?

    • Will: Hey, mom, you know what we should do?
      Marilyn: Your father was selfish in bed.
      Will: That's right, the vacuum game!
      Jack: Oh, I love the vacuum game. But do they make attachments for girls?
      Will: Not that vacuum game.

    • Beverley: I'll have you know, people at the club actually talk about my serve!
      Karen: They also talk about your he/she quality, but that's not gonna win us the points. Come on!

    • Jack: Hey, my grandmother wears her bra around her waist. Of course, that's where her boobs are.
      Will: Ohh, eww!

    • Karen: Beverly Leslie, with your shorts so tight, won't you be my partner tonight?
