Will and Grace s02e19 Episode Script

An Affair to Forget

Okay.
a-- a-- a school report.
two pieces of paper.
a hemline in a hurry.
What? I don't know.
Give me another clue.
Uh.
your Aunt Honey's stomach.
- Things that are stapled! - Thank you.
Yeah! All right! Great time? - 22 seconds.
- Okay.
not bad.
If they don't get the next one in seven seconds.
we won.
- Shorthand.
we won.
- Ha! Okay.
good luck.
you guys.
You can do it! And here we go! Me and you.
- People who are getting married.
- Correct.
What? Well.
you know.
we've thinking about it.
- and we just fi-- - What.
in four seconds? They must have cheated.
They suck at this.
This is the-- Maniac.
they're not playing the game.
they're making an announcement.
Oh! Oh! Oh my God! Oh my God! Oh my God! Congratulations! And we won.
Hey.
I have a chilled bottle of very expensive champagne.
which I have been saving for a special occasion.
Who wants coffee? Um.
Will.
there's actually one more question I need to pop.
Um.
will you be my best man? Rob.
you are not only my friend.
you're my accountant.
and any guy that can figure out a way to deduct Jack McFarland as an entertainment expense.
come here.
Wait.
wait.
wait.
Okay.
we're not done.
Grace.
would be my maid of honor? Oh my God.
Ellen.
That is so sweet.
Come here.
No.
What?! Wh-- ( gasps ) - Well.
why? - Well.
gosh.
you don't want two redheads in the wedding party.
It's a red menace.
Since when.
Grace? Since never.
I made it up.
- I'll do it! - Oh! - Of course I will! - Thank you.
Grace! I am so.
so jazzed about all this.
You know.
you guys.
you're the best.
and-- and we hate to cut this evening short.
but we got to break the big news to everyone in our line dancing club.
Oh.
well.
While you're there.
you might want to break the news that line dancing is over.
- You kidder.
- You guys are the best.
Love you guys.
- Congratulations.
- Bye.
The red menace? What was that about? Oh.
um.
you know.
I just-- I just have this issue with Ellen.
It's a long complicated story.
- So give me the short version.
- I slept with Rob.
Good night.
Whoa! No.
no.
no.
no.
no-no-no-no.
Gonna need the long complicated version.
Go.
Okay.
Danny and I had just broken up.
Ellen and Rob were going through another of their breakups.
In a nutshell.
chance encounter at a restaurant.
Rain.
booze.
sympathy.
knees touching.
more booze.
more rain.
more sympathy.
cab ride and then stuff.
I can't believe you haven't told me this.
I mean.
there was that time last April when I was so depressed.
and this would have pulled me right out of it.
yeah.
You see.
this is exactly why I didn't tell you.
Because I knew that you would enjoy it.
that you would make jokes and judge me and call me names.
and-- Grace.
give me a little credit.
- You little minx.
- All right.
that's it.
( theme music playing ) Okay.
bachelor party.
Let's review what we've got so far.
My name in bubble letters and then a picture of a man on a donkey.
I got nothing.
Oh my God.
I got a donkey.
too.
Well.
you know why we're blocked.
'Cause heterosexual marriage is just wrong.
I mean.
if God had intended man and woman to be together.
he would have given them both penises.
I believe I heard Pope RuPaul Il say that.
I know.
a progressive spa party.
We'll go from one lovely bachelor's pad to the next.
And at each place we'll do a different treatment.
A steam facial here.
a deep pore cleansing there.
and then knock-knock.
"Hello.
seaweed wrap?" "Yes.
come on in.
" That is the gayest thing I've ever heard.
I know.
Isn't it yummy? I can't do it.
I can't do it.
Will.
I can't do this bridal shower.
I am so racked with guilt.
I'm delusional.
I'm making the finger sandwiches.
and they're all giving me the finger.
Why so guilty? What'd you do? Will and Grace: Stuff.
Look.
I'm having a bachelor party here.
You're having the shower in your place.
If you start to freak out.
come over and get me.
It'll be fine.
I promise.
- Okay.
- All right.
Okay.
Oh.
oh.
oh.
I know.
I know what this is.
Will told me everything.
Grace.
you really did it this time.
Oh.
oh.
- You told him I slept with Rob? - Uh.
no.
Works every time.
Listen to me.
Chatty Cathy.
You keep this to yourself.
Not a word.
We do not speak of this again.
You understand? You little minx.
That was fun.
Now I'm hungry.
- Take me to Black Angus.
Sss.
- No.
no.
We got to figure this bachelor party thing out.
so.
I mean.
just think.
Straight world is backwards world.
so what is the absolute last thing you and I would want to see at a party? Hi.
I'm Sergeant Goodbody.
and I'm here to give Rob a citation for being a very bad boy.
Oh my God.
a stripper! You know.
Rob.
as your attorney.
I would usually advise against this sort of thing.
but as your friend.
I say par-tay har-tay.
Did I do that right? - I think you have to add a "whoo-hoo.
" - Whoo-hoo! ( knocks on door) - Karen? - Hi.
honey.
What are you doing here? Oh.
I was just taking a little walk.
You don't walk.
Well.
I was just going out for a little snack.
You don't eat solid foods.
I love you.
Oh.
right.
right.
Oh.
Stan's mother's in town.
Oh.
I'm telling you.
she's evil! I'm being tortured in my own home.
She's irresponsible.
she's lazy.
she drinks.
And worst of all.
she makes fun of what I wear! What are you supposed to say to a woman like that? Uh.
Karen.
may I take your coat? Thanks.
honey.
Karen.
you cannot stay.
Ellen is gonna be here any second for her bridal shower.
and she's bringing a couple of friends from Weehawken.
Oh.
come on.
Let me stay.
I've always wanted to see those people up close instead of driving through their habitat and having 'em jump on the hood of the car.
Come on.
No.
No.
Karen.
Ellen is a dear friend of mine.
and she's entrusted me with the responsibility of being the maid of honor and I take it very.
very.
very seriously.
Oh my God.
you slept with the groom.
What?! How did you-- well.
what did you-- do you have three sixes on your head? No.
but I got a fifth in my bloodstream.
Even in an adulteress's apartment.
I'm funny.
Oh.
I can't breathe.
I can't breathe.
So.
who'd like the first lap dance? - Rob.
- Oh.
gosh.
I don't know.
I mean.
Ellen's across the hall and I've got that hiatal hernia.
Well.
uh.
Steve? Nah.
I can tell she doesn't like me.
Okay.
Ira.
she's all yours.
My lap's a little tender right now.
- What does that mean? - Just leave me alone.
All right.
damn it.
I'll do it.
I mean.
I've copped a feel.
Might as well feel a cop.
All right.
come to Poppa.
( knocks on door) Okay.
we're gonna sit down now.
and you're gonna pretend like you're a human being.
- You little minx.
- Not a word! - Ellen.
hi! - Hi! - Welcome to your shower.
- Oh my God.
my shower! - Come on in.
- Hi.
And you've done one of your picnics.
- Isn't it fun? - Oh.
so much fun.
I can't believe how much fun.
Grace.
everything is really cute.
I hope you didn't put yourself out.
Oh.
too late.
Jack? Jack.
what's going on? Why did you run out in the middle of your lap dance? Does your ass have attention deficit disorder.
too? Well.
something really bad happened.
I got-- I got excited.
You mean excited like I-want-to-wear-what-she's-wearing excited? No.
excited the way the three of the four Baldwins and one of the two Quaids get me excited.
Oh my God.
it's finally happened.
You've gotten so gay.
you've looped around to straight again.
This isn't funny.
Nothing like this has ever happened to me before.
- I'm freaked out right now-- - Calm down.
- I know exactly what to do.
- What? Tell Grace! Oh my God.
Jack got turned on by a woman? Well.
he couldn't be straight.
so what.
now he's a lesbian? Well.
he's got the haircut for it.
So.
how's it going for you.
sleep-around Sue? What happened to "minx"? I'm saving that for just the right moment.
- Minx.
- Can we stop? I'm sorry.
You drop a bomb like you and Rob sleeping together and.
what.
- I'm supposed to let it go? - Will.
please.
Little dirty.
dirty.
cutie-cutie.
sleeping with Robbie-Robbie-- - Oh.
- Oh! Will.
Iisten.
is it okay if we watch "The English Patient"? What? That's not a happy face.
Ellie.
we were broken up.
I mean.
I was a mess.
I was out of my head.
He's right.
You know.
when a man gets that low.
he'll reach for anything.
anything.
Yup.
that's me.
I'm the step you take right before the gun.
Somebody tell that skank not to talk to me.
And you.
Mr.
Man.
are worse that a skank.
You're a skunk who sleeps with skank! Skunk! Skank! Okay.
okay.
Ellen.
I-- I'm so sorry but could we just agree that kind of language is uncalled for? The wedding's off.
Grace.
- Oh.
Ellen.
you can't-- - Ahh! I am so humiliated and disappointed.
and I just pray to God our friends never find out about this.
Everybody, Rob slept with Grace.
The wedding is off.
You and your big mouth! Me? What about him and his big mouth?! You know.
as far as I'm concerned.
you both have big mouths.
I slept with Grace.
Wedding's off.
What do you want to do? Go in there.
get Rob.
we will work this out together.
No.
no.
I can't go in there.
Everybody hates me.
Grace.
I promise you.
no one is even thinking of you.
right now.
okay? All right.
okay.
- Hi.
everybody.
- (yelling ) What were you thinking?! - Poodle! - Oh.
Karen! I know.
I know.
I know.
Honey.
Will told me.
Listen.
I'm sure it's just a fluke or an allergic reaction.
I mean.
Stan's head swells when he eats a peanut.
Karen.
I know the difference between 6:00 and 12:00.
and this was midnight at the oasis.
All right.
all right.
Well.
come on.
Iet's try a little reenactment and see if we can figure out what happened.
Sit down.
Okay.
Now.
she probably started out with a little of this action.
Ohh.
yeah! Well.
she wasn't really that boob-intensive.
She just kind of sat on my lap and moved around a lot.
Oh.
well.
then it was just simple friction.
Okay.
come on.
Here we go.
Okay.
all right.
This is the way the wheel goes round The wheel goes round.
the wheel goes round Karen.
you're chafing me.
Just give me another couple seconds.
It's not working.
Maybe not for you.
It's no use.
I'm a freak.
I'm an aberration.
I'm a man that gets turned on by women.
But not by me? You know.
that hurt.
You should be careful what you say.
You should realize that words are weapons.
you little sissy! Now.
wake up down here! Karen! This isn't about you.
this is about me and this sickness I have.
Jack? I've been looking for you.
I still owe you half a lap dance.
Um.
could you just give it to the needy? Look.
I never do this.
but I think you're really cute.
so if you change your mind.
here's my card.
Oh.
that's very nice of you.
I don't think I'll be changing my mind any time soon.
Carl.
so-- because I'm a-- You're a Carl? From the waist down.
From the waist up.
I'm Carla.
So.
you're not a girl? Not yet.
but God willing.
by fall I will be.
Oh.
thank God.
I'm still gayer than Christmas.
All right.
speaking of half-women.
I gotta get back to Stan's mother.
Oh.
hey! Hey.
say.
come on.
come with me.
We'll scare the crap out of her and you'll get you $1.
000 closer to your snippity-doo-da day.
Come on! Ellen.
peaches.
Iisten.
The thing between Grace and me meant nothing.
That's right.
El.
nothing.
- It was just a meaningless encounter.
- A wrong detour.
A pathetic.
miserable act between two desperate.
sweaty people.
Did I say that out loud? Look.
El.
she was nothing compared to you.
You know I don't like bony girls.
It was like-- it was like having sex with a cricket.
Yeah? Well.
I was fake chirping.
- Please come out.
- Please.
Ellen.
I'm not talking to Skunk or Skank.
I will only talk to Will.
Cricket? I'm so never sleeping with you again! Ellen.
I know you're hurting.
but there's something you got to know.
Rob is hurting too.
- Do you have any condoms? - Top drawer.
Well.
I mean.
he-- he loves you.
He cares for you.
- I'm sorry.
condoms? - Yeah.
we're having sex.
It's the only way to even the score with Rob and Grace.
- It has to be done.
- Okay.
wait-- so.
slow down.
- One of us is gay.
- Yeah.
get over it.
Now.
I want you to throw me on the bed and have your beastie way with me.
Ellen.
that is not gonna happen.
You and I are not gonna-- oh my God.
you're in a bra.
Get a load of these torpedoes.
Ellen.
damn the torpedoes.
Give it over to your mama.
Stop! Stop.
stop.
Look.
I know you're in pain.
but this is no way to deal with it.
I mean.
Iook at you.
Iook what you're doing.
( gasps ) Oh my God.
you're right.
Oh my God.
Iook at me.
What is wrong with me? I'm just a dumb.
stupid idiot-head.
Oh.
Ellen.
it's okay.
It's-- it's just-- Now.
I'm gonna grind you like fresh cup of coffee.
Don't worry.
Will is fantastic in these kind of situations.
Trust me.
he will not come out of there until he has fixed this.
Yeah.
yeah.
you're right.
I-- I give up! All right.
forget it! I-- this has gotten way out of hand.
There's a crazy woman in there coming at me like-- Iike Chucky in a C-cup.
- What now? - You know what? There's only one person who can make this right.
Hey.
I'm not going back in there unless she is sedated or trussed up like a turkey.
I'm talking about me.
Will! Oh.
right.
yes.
go.
- Good for you.
- Come on.
Iet's do it.
- You can do it! - We got faith in you.
buddy.
Go.
Rob! - Never gonna happen.
- He's a dead man.
Oh God.
what am I gonna do? What am I gonna do? I know! I know! I'll do what I did in college.
Oh.
Grace.
I got rid of my bong years ago.
Not that.
Whenever Ellen or I would get into a fight in college.
I would make her a tunnel-of-fudge bundt cake.
We would talk.
we would eat.
and somehow everything would work out okay.
Of course.
much like the apple brown Betty that ended the Battle of Guadalcanal.
Grace.
we don't have time.
Don't you see that I have to do something? I mean.
Ellen is one of my oldest and dearest friends.
I mean.
when my father was sick.
Ellen was there.
When I didn't get into that Paris program.
Ellen was there.
And then when-- and when Danny and I broke up.
Ellen was-- well.
Rob was there.
but-- but Ellen was just a few blocks away.
God.
now I've totally ruined their marriage.
Rob: Oh! Ho, ho! - Was that you? - Huh-uh.
- So that means that was-- - Uh-huh.
- Right there in your-- - Oh.
yeah.
- Let's get out of here.
- No.
I can't go anywhere until I know that Ellen's forgiven me.
- Ellen.
have you forgiven Grace? - Ellen: Oh God, yes.
Good enough for me.
- Want to get something to eat? - No.
I want to get some new sheets.
