  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Will: (after firing Helicopter pilot, then alluding to giving Pastry Chef weekends off so someone could take him to Montauk) On a completely unrelated note, do you think I could borrow your place in Montauk this weekend?
      Karen: Oh, sure honey. You can take the chopper.

    • Will: (about not firing Pastry Chef) I met him, and I watched him work. The man is a genius. He's an artist. I mean, would you fire Picasso?
      Karen: I would, and I did! He put both breasts on one side of my body. I wouldn't take it from Plastic Surgeon, and I wouldn't take it from him!

    • Grace: (about Nick's script) You want me to read it?
      Nick: Yeah, if you would.
      Grace: Oh, my God! I would love to! I'm just so flattered you'd ask.
      Karen: God, keep your pants on. He didn't propose.

    • Karen: OK, OK, I got one! I got one! Would you rather smell Will's armpit at 6:00 PM or his breath at 6:00 AM?
      Grace: That's so hard. Has he been to the gym? What did he eat the night before?
      Karen: Hour on the treadmill. Indian food.
      Grace: Ugh. How do I pick? They're both gonna smell of curry.

    • Pastry Chef: Karen, it was great sexing you just now. Will, it'll be great sexing you this weekend.

    • Grace: When I was in college I dated--
      Jack: A homo?
      Grace: No. A guy in a rock band. And I went to see him and it turned out he was--
      Jack: A homo?
      Grace: No!

    • Pastry Chef: I don't believe in gay or straight. I refused to limit pleasure. I like to think of myself as pansexual.
      Karen: Oh my God, he's been humping my pans.

    • Jack: I like the character of FadEY-OOt.
      Nick: That says 'fade out'.

    • Karen: (suspiciously) What? There is something going on here. I smell liquor on my breath-- you're drunk!

    • Will: If I had to have sex with a woman it would be with Hilary Swank or Tobey Maguire.

    • Grace: Great, now he's mad at both of us, what are we gonna do?
      Will: Wow, that's a tuffy. If somebody's mad at you for not reading a script. If only there were a way, to scan the letters on the page and somehow relay the information to your brain.
      Jack: Uhhh, there is. It's called Braille.

    • Will: Pan-sexual? Isn't that just a rest-stop on the highway to homo?

    • Dave: Uh, Jack, there's a Grace Adler here to see you.
      Jack: Thank you, Elizabeth, just show her in please.
      Dave: Uh, no my name's Dave, right--
      Jack: Listen, it's bad enough I'm the only one here with a straight assistant, don't make me call you that ridiculous name.
      Dave: Uh, yeah but--
      Jack: Yeah, that will be all Elizabeth!!!

    • Grace: He hit the jackpot! One of Nick's greeting cards just went "Mug."
      Nick: It's-ah, kind of an industry term. What it means is one of the cards I wrote is being put on a... mug. I probably didn't need to explain that.
      Will: Wow Nick, that's so cool.
      Grace: You think so?
      Will: No, what am I supposed to say.

  • Notes

    • This marks the last appearance of Ed Burns as Nick, who was originally planned to be in a longer relationship for Grace, but was changed before going to script.

  • Allusions

    • Jack: What was your favorite part?
      Karen: The orgasm in the deli.

      Karen is referencing the famous scene from When Harry Met Sally.
