  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Grace: Wait, does that say "The Vadge"?
      Karen: Yeah, that's the last time I place an order with Kinkos over the phone. You know maybe I should have said "B as in Boy" instead of "B as in Bagina".
      Grace: Yeah, it's unfortunate that the show's tag-line is "Go deep inside a hidden world that few dare to enter".

    • Jack:(To Karen and Gin) Wow! The resemblance in uncanny. Meaning, both of you have huge cans.

    • Jack: (sighing) Moe is me.

    • Vince: Will, I'm an old fashioned homosexual. To me family is two guys, some mid-century furniture, and a baby that doesn't look like either one of us.

    • Gin: It was a crisp fall day, the country was still in shock over the assassination of the president.
      Will: Okay, I'm 90% sure she's talking about Kennedy of Garfield.
      Gin: Father had just brought home a new game called croquet.
      Vince: Could be Garfield.
      Will: Could be Lincoln.

    • Karen: What do you think I'm talking about when I say "Boy, do I love Gin"? or "I can't get though the day without Gin"? "That Gin gave me such a headache last night"? Geez, next thing you know you'll tell me I never mentioned my brother-in-law Johnny Walker!

    • Jack: Wow, this baby name book is really great! Oh, here's a pretty one: Clitorisa.
      Will: That's Clarissa.
      Jack: Oh, that's just gross.

    • Jack: But..you're so manly.
      Josh: I know. But all the top leading men are dubbed.
      Jack: Really? What about the bottom?

    • Jack: Oh my God! That's not my voice! I've been dubbed! (In squeaky voice) Why would anybody dub my voice?!?

    • Virginia: I'm sorry, say that again? I didn't hear you because one of my legs is shorter than the other.
      Karen: You're such a pessimist Gin, why not say one of my legs is freakishly long?

    • Karen: Gin, Please!
      Gin: Don't beg me.
      Karen: No, I was ordering. Gin, please!

    • Grace: I know what I want to name the baby; George.
      Will: After my dad?
      Grace: No, after the curious monkey, and by that I mean our President.

    • Jack: (...entering the room) Oh my God you guys. You're never going to believe who's here... ME! I heard rumours that I wasn't going to show but I'm really here.

    • Josh: I know you. You're Jack McFarland. You played Chuck Raftery on The Badge.
      Jack: Well I am and I do. But how would you know that it hasn't aired yet.
      Josh: Yeah I was up for that part. I'd do anything to get out of big buget features into basic cable. I heard you blew everybody away though.
      Jack: Oh, that's the story they're telling?

    • Vince: What if we have to move to Seattle because of my eczema?

    • Vince: I got it from the evidence locker, but don't touch the inside. I still gotta dust it for prints and scrape it for a blood match
      Grace: Uh--thanks, Vince. It's the first gift I've ever received that was part of a crime scene.
      Karen: (quietly) Second.

    • Jack: Oh, my Sweet Home Alabama it's Josh Lucas.
