EDIT
Went To A Garden Potty
AIRED:
In the aftermath of his parents' divorce, Will salvages a beloved garden gnome – nicknamed "Squatsie" – and proudly plants the childhood relic in his apartment's community area until Grace accidentally delivers a coup de grace on the gnome's dome with a shovel. Elsewhere, Jack consults his acting coach when he fears that his heterosexual role in a mattress commercial produced by Karen will stereotype him for more meaningful gay acting gigs in the future.moreless

  • I rated this episode 6.6 because of Grace. Once again Grace's selfishness wins the day to ruin somebody else's day. Because Grace was the one that suggested that the gnome to be put outside because she did not like it. I thought this episode was good.moreless

    6.6
    I liked Will's gnome and I don't see why Grace had to not like it. Why is Grace so clumsy?. I love this show to pieces but they should have made the storyline where Will's gnome did survive. I don't dislike this show but I just thought this was not my favorite storyline. I think Grace was very mean to lie about breaking Will's gnome. Grace always does that when she does something bad she lies about it for example that episode where no one wanted to play Poker with her and she was cheating and everyone turned it on Will witch was an act. So I give this episode 3 out of 5 stars.moreless

  • QUOTES (19)

    • Grace: Okay! Okay I did it! I'm the gnome wrecker!

    • Karen: And now to present you with your very first paycheck, and no your eyes aren't deceiving you that's two zeroes behind that one.

    • Jack: (to Zandra) I just wanted to let you know that I turned down a job that literally payed TENS of dollars.

    • Jack: Zandra, what about all that stuff you're always saying about how we need to make tough choices in our careers?
      Zandra: Well, that only applies to people who have careers! And you go back to this brainless fart who gave you this part in the first place and you get down on your knees... and you beg... like a gypsy in an airport... for your job back!

    • Zandra: If I still smoked, I would take my Parliament and stick it in your eye! sighs Oh, what the hell. I'm just gonna jab you with this dirty fork.

    • Zandra: This better be good. You're taking time away from my slow, agonizing march toward death.
      Jack: Well, I won't keep you...

    • Jack: I'm typecast! Pigeon-chested! Corn-holed!

    • Karen: Honey, that was really moving. You know, I think I got a little misty....down there.

    • Grace: Jack, when is your commercial on? You've already made us sit through 8 episodes of Match Game '73.
      Will: If I have to watch one more, I'm gonna "blank" in my shorts.

    • Karen: (to Jack) Oh, honey, no one in the world would believe you're straight. You're as gay as a clutch purse on Tony night. You fell out of the gay tree hitting every gay branch on the way down...and you landed on a gay guy...and you did him.

    • Jack: (To Karen) I'm an actor! Do I have to remind you that I almost got that part in Seven Grooms for Seven Brothers? Til that damn 15th guy showed up.

    • Will: I came from a broken home. And now, thanks to you, I come from a broken gnome.

    • Jack: There's not gonna be a next commercial. And if you were any kind of friend you'd pull that one off the air.
      Karen: Okay, I'm gonna tell you the same thing I told Stan in prison. I ain't pullin' nothin'!

    • Karen: Ever since we've been running those ads, mattress sales have doubled! To five!

    • Grace : How did it go with your parents?
      Will : I thought it was going to be sad, you know, going back to the house, dealing with the reality of their separation, but you know what? It actually turned out to be quite devastating.

    • Grace: Will, I have some bad news.
      Will: What? That outfit isn't returnable?

    • (A fly buzzes around Grace. Grace slaps her arm, then Will's arm.)
      Will: Ow!
      Grace: Sorry. There were two of them.
      Will: Oh. (Will slaps Grace's arm.)
      Grace: Ow! Thanks. Did you get it?
      Will: Get what?

    • Will: Ok, let me just grab my hoe, and I'll be ready. (He grabs Grace's arm.) I'm ready.

    • Jack: No ornery black police captain will ever say to me, (in a deep voice) "You a loose cannon, Bruce. Turn in your badge and your chaps and get your gay ass out of my precinct."
