Rosie's comin' with. She's up there breakin' up with Lionel for me, so I thought I'd take her out too and get this supportive friend thing over with in one trip. — Karen
|Karen:||Every time I go to break up with him he flashes those pearly caps and I end up bent over the minibar.|
|Grace:||End up? Isn't that where you started?|
I can't believe, in all the time I've known you, that I've had to say this twice, but my penis doesn't enjoy being sung to. — Will, to Jack
I didn't hire you to be my pal. You're just here to make sure the S.S. Bacon stays its course. — Kevin Bacon, to his new assistant
|Karen:||It's like the old song goes... anyone deserves a free meal after having Will's sperm inside them.|
|Grace:||I think that was from "You're a Gay Dad, Charlie Brown."|
When the stalkers leave, it's the first sign that your career is slipping. I picked that up from Val Kilmer. — Kevin Bacon
