Will and Grace is not only hilarious, it also offers fans the chance to quote some truly memorable lines from four characters who are never afraid to speak their uncensored minds. Here are five of the best quotes from the past nine seasons.
1. “Pilot,” Episode 1, Season 1
Jack: FYI, folks, most people that meet me do not know that I am gay.
Will: Jack, blind and deaf people know you’re gay. Dead people know you’re gay.
Jack: Grace, did you know I was gay when you first met me?
Grace: My dog knew.
From the beginning of the pilot episode, we could tell that there would be many jokes at Jack’s lack of self-awareness…but they never get old!
2. “Husbands and Trophy Wives,” Episode 3, Season 3
Karen [to bartender]: Ah, Smitty. Why is there so much pain in the world? So much cruelty? Can you tell me that, Smitty?
Bartender: My name is not Smitty.
Karen: I don’t need your life story, nose hair, just fill ‘er up!
Some of Karen’s best lines occur when she’s talking to her bartender, Smitty. Even when it’s a different bartender, Karen always thinks they’re the same person!
3. “Fagel Attraction,” Episode 23, Season 4
Karen: You say potato, I say vodka.
Karen’s one-liners are a critical part of keeping the laughs coming during every episode. All of her sayings like this one lead to laughs a plenty.
4. “Love is in the Airplane,” Episode 6, Season 8
Will: Grace, it doesn’t matter how you look. He cares about you, not about your clothes.
Grace: Are you kidding?
Will: I know, even as I said it I didn’t believe it.
We can always rely on Will to tell it like it is – even if the truth hurts.
5. “11 Years Later,” Episode 1, Season 9
Grace: We should just be what we’ve always been.
Jack: A sad middle-aged lady. And Grace.
We knew our foursome was back in the new revival when Jack made a joke at Will’s expense…just like old times.
