  • Quotes

    • Dr. Hershberg: Who left this cup of warm apple juice on the counter? It's not 'myan' (to Karen) it must be 'urine'!

    • Dr. Hershberg: (after oogling his nurse and she leaves) If she weren't my sister I would SO tap that ass.

    • Karen: I went to the doctor. Here, my x-ray. Happy? Sheesh.
      Will: This is the x-ray of a cat.
      Karen: Meow?

    • Karen: Dear God, if I'm OK I promise I will dedicate the rest of my life to serving you.
      Will: It says here you're fine.
      Karen: (unfolds hands, open eyes, stares at the ceiling, looking to God and crossing fingers with a smirk on her face) Fall for it again, God! haha
      Will: You just punk'd the almighty.

    • Nurse Sheila: Here you go doctor, your instruments have been lubed and sterilized, and so have I.
      Will: Hey, um, Nurse Sheila. You-- You were once my nurse at the sperm clinic.
      Nurse Sheila: Hmm, I'm not so good with faces, drop your pants; I'll see if it rings a bell.

    • Karen: Honey, I know it's scary. Hey, when I started working in the corporate world of Grace Adler designs I was terrified. Would she like me? Would I be good at my job? And now look at me, honey, I'm one of the richest women in the world. Yes there's no connection but if you pause in the right places and emphasise the right words it sounds very inspiring.

    • Will (on the phone with Grace): Well, I miss you so much. But I'm so proud of the work you're doing. Have you met Angelina Jolie yet?

    • Karen: Will, I got the results of my physical back and I'm a-scared to open 'em. Will you look for me?
      Will: What are you afraid they're gonna find some blood in your alcohol?

    • Will: Karen, did you go to your physical today?
      Karen: Yeah, I did, uh-huh.
      Will: Don't lie to me. You are on the board of Walker, Inc. now. You have to prove you're in good health, or at least the black market organs that make you up are in good health.

  • Allusions

    • Title: Nice in White Satin

      This is a reference to the 1967 song "Nights in White Satin" by The Moody Blues.

    • Will: (on seeing Jack bending over waxing his surfboard) Oh look, Beach Blanket Butt crack.

      This is a reference and play on words to the famous San Francisco revue show Beach Blanket Babylon, the longest running show of its kind in the world, and also to the 1965 film Beach Blanket Bingo, starring Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello, the fourth in the series of "beach party" movies, featuring all the usual suspects, including surfers.
