  • Quotes

    • Karen: Honey, what is the problem? It was just a kiss.
      Grace: Oh, no no no no no no--you don't understand, it was a really good kiss.
      Karen: (scoffs) Show me.
      Grace: No.
      Karen: Show me.
      Grace: No.
      Karen: Come on, we're both stoned.
      Grace: Forget it.
      Karen: Shut up and show me.
      (Grace grabs Karen by the face and lays a long kiss on her)
      Karen: Yeah, you're screwed.

    • Grace: So, Leo, being a doc-tah, you must really hate it when people hit you up for free medical advice.
      Leo: Yeah, it's the worst... waddya need?
      Grace: Sometimes I taste pennies... in my mouth. That's like a stroke thing, right?
      Leo: It can be. Let me ask you something. This is where you're gonna see the whole doctor thing start working. Do you keep your mints in your change purse?
      Grace: I don't think I've ever been more embarrassed.

    • Grace: Admit it. You're happiest when I'm miserable. I mean, come on. Isn't that our thing? Because then you don't have to look at how miserable you are.
      Will: Shut up, Grace!
      Grace: But I am not gonna be miserable for you. I am gonna try to be happy, and if you can't deal with that, then you are even more pathetic than I thought!
      Will: Get out of here.
      Grace: Go to hell!
      Will: I want you out of here in two weeks! You don't live here anymore.

    • Grace: Sorry I'm late. I was caught on the 'F' Train. Or as I now call it, the F-ing Train.

    • Karen: Well, maybe it's for the best. Then you and I can move on with our lives. Out in the open to love freely.
      Grace: Karen, we're not a couple.
      Karen: Aren't we?
      Grace: No.
      Karen: Well, all I know is when I woke up this morning, there was red hair on my pillow and lesbian porn in the VCR.

    • Jack: So this is fun. Fixin' stuff. Sandin' things.
      Will: Uh-huh.
      Jack: Workin' up a sweat.
      Will: Hmm.
      Jack: Makes me feel like a man.
      Will: Yeah.
      Jack: No, seriously, I'd like a man after we're done.

    • Will: Can I ask you something?
      Jack: Ooh, serious voice. Let me do my Oprah listening pose.

    • Will: Jack and I are gonna have it painted. Pink if it's a girl, and hot pink if it's a boy.
      Jack: And flannel if it's a lesbian.

    • Karen: Oh, hey. Somebody got some flowers, huh? Or as I like to call them, poor people's jewelry.

    • Grace: The wrapping is so beautiful! All these beads and glitter. Add a couple of spaghetti straps and a hint of butt crack, and it's an Academy Awards gown!

    • Will: Oh, I can't believe this! This is only the most important thing we've ever done together, and you flake out on me? I don't know why that's surprising. You're a flake!
      Grace: I am not a flake!
      Will: Oh, please. The dinners you blow off, the dry cleaning you forget to pick up, the rent that's late every month, and it's always been this way, Grace. You skipped out on my law school graduation party before I cut the cake. That was a big deal.
      Grace: It was carrot cake! That's never a big deal!
      Will: But I always let it go, Grace, because it's not like we're making a baby or something. Except this time, we're making a baby!
