  • Quotes

    • Karen: So what can I do? How can I help? What are we drinking?
      Jack: Well... I was thinking you could be my assistant.
      Karen: (Gasps) A designer's assistant? Wow! Oh, honey, that...that's something I've always dreamed of doing.

    • Karen: Oh, honey, you just gave me a great idea what to get Rosario for Christmas. A new face. Yeah I'm gonna call plastic surgeon and see if he can give her cat eyes. Maybe she won't look so weird scratchin' to get in.

    • Will: It doesn't matter what Grace thinks of you, I like you!
      Robert: That's great. Look! Its snowing! I love snow! Its like God's little winter appetizer! (dances off in public)
      Will: Aaaaaanddd, we're breaking up.

    • Karen: What are the holidays coming to when you can't bribe a friend to help a friend that screwed that friend over?

    • Karen: Come on Grace, why can't we have an office christmas party?
      Grace: Last year's was a disaster. You got drunk, told me you loved me and then kissed me in the service elevator.
      Karen: I thought that was Valentine's day.
      Grace: No, on Valentine's day you got drunk and felt me up in the swatch room.
      Karen: I'm a sucker for the holidays!

    • Grace: Dinner with Robert, movie with Robert. I think you're seeing somebody named Robert!
      Will: Damn it! You cracked my secret code of disguising his real name with his real name!

    • Grace: This is a woman's scarf.
      Will: It's not, it's unisex!
      Grace: That's what gay men always say when they want to wear women's clothing!

    • Karen: Grace! It's Christmas, for goodness sake! Think about the baby Jesus... up in that tower letting his hair down so that the three wise men can climb up, spin the dreidel and see if there's six more weeks of winter.
      Grace: Where'd you get that from, the bartenders bible?

    • Dorleen: (to Jack) You're begging like a homeless person. If you don't shut up, I'll throw my hot coffee on you, too!

    • Jack: Mary Kate and Ashley, it's beautiful!

    • Jack: Oh, Karen. Do that bit you do!
      Karen: Okay ... I've been on Dasher, on Dancer, on Prancer, on Vixen. On Comet, on Cupid, on Donnor, but not Blitzen, 'cause he likes to watch!

    • Jack: (After Karen does her reindeer gag) So, Dorleen, what do you think?
      Dorlene: You'd better be kidding me with this crap! This isn't a window for Barney's New York, New York! This is a window for The Fairies Who Are Going To Get Their Eyes Scratched Out Store! Now, you have 24 hours to get this right or not only will I fire you, I will re-hire you, pull your hair, and fire you again!

    • Karen: (in Dominatrix Christmas suit, complete with whip) Someone's been a bad boy this year. (cracks whip)
