    • QUOTES (15)

      • Grace: God, quiche for a gay fund-raiser, could you be any more stereotypical? And, by the way, tell your people to stay away from my lox.
        Will: Would you look at that? One of your women just drifted over to the fireplace, which we clearly agreed was my area since the gays need soft light.

      • Karen: (to Elliot) This is what really bugs me about you: the way you talk. You're honest, you've got no agenda, you're not manipulative. It's like you're talkin' in code!

      • Grace: You are plenty gay. If you were any gayer, you'd be Elton John's fanny pack.
        Will: You don't have to say that.
        Grace: No, I mean it.
        Will: Well, if I implied that you're anything less than a big Jew, I'm sorry.

      • Will: You're barely a woman. You pee standing up!
        Grace: Hey! There are a lot of diseases you can get from a toilet seat!
        Will: Our own?!

      • Jack: Once again, I find myself in the horns of a dilemma.
        Will: Once again, the appropriate response seems to be: 'wear a condom.'

      • Jack: I'm up for the part of 'Male Corpse on Slab.'
        Will: I don't know what that means, but 'wear a condom' seems like an appropriate response.

      • Grace: Well, you're about as gay as Tom Sellick in In and Out.
        Will: I am plenty gay.
        Grace: When was the last time you had same-sex sex?

      • Jack: Well the casting director was gorgeous and as believable as my performance was as 'male corpse on slab', there was one part of me that refused to play dead.
        Karen: I see, so you would have only been five and a half feet under.

      • Karen (on the phone to Rosario): Hello. This is Nurse Bigrack from Dr. La-bop-duh-duhp-boop-boop's office. Got good news for ya. It's time to start your physical therapy.

      • Jack (describing a party he's planning): Anyway, Elliot doesn't want me to invite Karen. He doesn't like her. Can you believe it?
        Will: Kids today are so weird. You know, when I was a kid, we couldn't wait to hang out with the local insensitive drunk.

      • Will (to Jack): Well, for what it's worth, I've seen you act, and I feel totally confident that you have the emotional range to play a dead man.

      • Eliott: You kinda look like the demon that guards the tomb in Tomb Raider.
        Karen: Don't even try and flatter me kid!

      • Karen: Come on two-shoes. You've never done a bad thing in your life!
        Eliott: Oh yeah? Watch this! (Drops some of Karen's books on the floor)
        Karen: Pick that up!
        Eliott: Sorry.
        Karen: TWO-SHOES! Haha!

      • Will: I'm having a party to support him.
        Grace: Oh me too with her.
        Will & Grace (at the same time): When's yours?Tonight. Change yours. No you change. Stop it! You stop!

      • Elliot: Cool, you got an X-Box.
        Karen: Hey, hey, hey just becuase my husband is in jail does not mean you can talk dirty to me!
        ---Later on---
        Elliot: Would you mind sometime if I came back to play with your X-Box?
        Karen: Anytime kid.
        [Elliot Leaves]
        Karen: Hey, would you look at that, that game is called and X-Box!
