Karen Walker: Y'know, sometimes it seems like our sole purpose in life is just to serve Will and Grace. Jack McFarland: Right. It's like all people see when they look at us are the supporting players on the Will & Grace show. Karen: Jack you will do this like any other respectable woman, lay on your back, point your heels to Jesus and think of handbags! Karen: So that miniature pony offered you all his money just to take a few rides on him and you said no? Jack: But I don't like him. Karen: Since when is that a problem? Jack: Well played. [pause] I can't do it. Karen: Oh you'll do it. You'll do it the same way any self-respecting woman does. Get on your back, point your heels to Jesus and think of handbags. Grace: Jews and chicken; it's real and it's deep. Jack McFarland: [Celebrating with, Karen, getting Grace & Will back together] Hey, let's get a dessert! Nothing too filling. Something small and fruity with lady fingers. [Beverley Leslie walks in] Jack McFarland: [Karen has left Jack and Beverly Leslie alone] Nice seeing you again. I'm sure you have places to go... a magic ring to protect... [Will is shaking Grace to wake her from her dream of the future] Will Truman: Sweetie, wake up. You were dreaming. You kept mumlbing "bacon" and "fat ass". It's scary to make that connection, huh? Will Truman: [to Jack] You and Beverley Leslie. I actually think you found someone you're too butch for. Jack McFarland: [to Will] That's funny. Do I hear screaming? Oh, no, that's just the buttons on your shirt.
