Full Plot

Karen's step-daughter Olivia visits her for Christmas, but Karen wants to get rid of her as quickly as possible so she makes Jack take care of her. Other than expected, Jack has a lot of fun with Olivia and Karen suddenly wants to hang out with them. Grace starts to get along with Will's mother pretty well until she ruins her favorite figuring. But since Marilyn doesn't know about it neither Will nor Grace tell her about it. The guilt over not telling Marilyn drives Grace nuts. Anonymous Plot not found

[at Christmas] Rosario: [entering] Miss Karen? We have a little visitor. Karen: Oh, for god's sake, I'm not your mother. You know where the tampons are! Karen: [annoyed] It's your stepdaughter Olivia, you ghost of Christmas passed-out. [Grace has broken Will's mother's Lladro figurine, and is panicked that she knows. Marilyn is on her way up to their apartment, and Will wants her to just lie] Will: Grace. What are you worried about? You didn't do anything. Right? Grace: Right. Will: Right. So anything she has to say about the fate of her figurine is new information, and should be met with shock. Let's try it. Um... [imitates his mother] Grace, my Lladro is broken! Grace: [immediately] DEAR GOD, NO! Will: [pause] Yeah, you're - you're *mildly* surprised, not being asked to give money to charity. [Grace broke Marilyn's Lladro figurine at a party and hid it under her couch] Marilyn Truman: I have some very sad news, Will. Fiona was cleaning after the party yesterday - [starts crying] and she found Ouisan in pieces on the floor. Ouisan is dead, Will. She's dead! Grace: Ouisan? Well, she sounds like someone who was ready to go anyway. Marilyn Truman: She was a very rare Lladro figurine. And somebody broke her. Oh, I bet it was that Skippy Faber, the clumsy drunk. Grace, you were talking to her. Was she slurring? Grace: Uh, a little. But I really couldn't tell 'cause she was... [raises her arms stiffly] stumbling around and waving her arms. Marilyn Truman: I knew it! I am going to wait until April and pour bleach on her roses. Will: Well, hey, that's something to look forward to. Marilyn Truman: I'm just going to splash some cold water on my face, and then I'll be going. [exits crying] Will: [whispers to Grace] This is perfect! This is what happens when you keep your mouth shut. Skippy Faber takes the fall! Grace: So, that's it? I just let Skippy hang for my crime? [considers] Ah, she's German. We'll just call it even. Karen: So, what we're doin'? Jack McFarland: What all teenage girls do. Which is remarkable similar to what gay men do. Talk about boys, obsessed of our bodys and make fun of people. Jack McFarland: Wow, that was just like "The O.C.". Just without 25-year old teenagers and 35-year old parents.
