Dames at Sea is the first episode of the sixth season and 117th overall.
Will and Jack awake in a precarious position - sharing a bed in the nude - while at sea. Unable to remember every detail from the night before, the two alleged bedfellows deny the possibility that anything happened, but each grow concerned as to how to dump the other. Meanwhile, Grace's discovery of a love letter in Leo's bag from a female colleague prompts her to doubt his fidelity and Karen survives a night fighting for her life while afloat in the forbidding night sea with a freighter full of Russian sailors, and must honor a pact with savior Rosario.

I can't believe I was in bed with Will. When I woke up and saw that olive skin and that furry body, I thought, "Please, God, let it be a giant furry olive." — Jack
Dear Grace, I can't believe I'm saying good-bye to you again. Last night, I was watching you sleep. And, well, it just made me realize it's so much better than sleeping next to a picture. If you're reading this, you're probably in your nightgown ready to crawl into bed... or it's been 30 seconds and you're in the same outfit because you can't follow a simple instruction. Either way, I'm not leaving. I'm giving up Doctors Without Borders. I'm on the other side of the door. — Leo, choosing her wife over Doctors Without Borders
|Karen:||But I just saved her life.|
|Will:||Holding a toaster over the bathtub and not dropping it is not saving her life.|
|Grace:||I just wish I knew some voodoo so I could cast a spell on her and turn her into a ferret.|
|Will:||Yeah, that's pretty much your only option.|
When we get to St. Barts, I am buying myself an EPT. And so help me, if that stick is blue.. I am not going through this alone. Not again. — Jack
This morning, we swiped their jet ski. That's Russian for jet ski. — Karen
