Went to a Garden Potty

Oh, hey, you're back Wow You missed one hell of a night Yeah? What'd you do-- Watch "Providence," take a couple of antihistamines? End a glass of chardonnay with an ice cube / Mmm! It was like spring break for shut-ins How'd it go with your parents? Well, I thought I was gonna be sad you know, going back to the house dealing with the reality of their separation but you know what? It actually turned out to be fairly devastating - Oh, I'm sorry - Yeah they've put the house on the market so they told us kids just to take anything that really means something to us Boy, I can't imagine doing that in my parent's house Mainly because I've already stolen everything I liked and everything else is crap Well, I had to fight for it but I got something I love Oh, good Well, hopefully it Will be a reminder of all the good times that you and your family Aah! What the hell is that freaky thing?! His name's Squatsie When I was 9, my brothers and I all chipped in and got him for my parent's anniversary Even though he wasn't really their taste they loved us so much they put him right in the front garden where everybody could see him Oh, that's sweet Do you think it'll fit down the chute or should we just take it to the dumpster? Ok, I knew when I brought a gnome into this house that some would scoff but I love him! We have been through a lot together Haven't we, Squatsie? Right you are, Will You've always had a special place in me heart! Oh, good He talks, too And I think I see the perfect place for him Huh? what do you think, Squats? Oh, I like it here, Will Um, may I offer one Squatsie-related thought? Um, he strikes me as an outdoor gnome I mean, 'cause, look he's already wearing a jacket Why don't we keep him in our garden? What? That community garden plot across the street? I thought we got rid of that two years ago Eh, there was this big form you had to fill out It was less work just to pay the bill Once again your sloth pays off You know, this is a great idea I used to sit in the garden and look at my gnome and look at the flowers sing songs Thinking about falling in love some day I even used to make wishes on him Did you wish to be gay? Because that one really came true Àª & ±×·¹À̽º (Went To A Garden Potty) ÀÚ¸· Á¦ÀÛ - ³×ÀÌÆ® µå ó¸ 24 ÀÚ¸·ÆÀ Will & Grace ÀÚ¸·ÆÀ And, Karen, you know I wouldn't be asking for your help if I didn't feel we were like family I mean, God all we've been through Oh, I know, honey You don't have to remind me Well, you know our history together-- Those summers we spent in Sag Harbor you and Stan me and Lorraine Oh, Lorraine.
Hmm Good times I'm sorry I have no idea who you are Norman Keep going Stan's old partner We started the mattress store together - Mattress store - Remember?

commercial Karen! Huge news! Hello, sir I just got back from my acting class and my teacher -- Zandra-with-a-"Z" -- said my monologue was the second worst she's ever seen You hear that? I'm getting better Honey, give me a minute, ok? I'm catching up here with my dear old friend Norman Norman! Norman Norman, right Listen, honey, since it means something to Stan I'll throw a few shekels your way What kind of commercial are we talking? Oh, something simple for local cable and because the store is called "Senor Mattress," I could be lying on one of the high-end posturepedics wearing a sombrero and Lorraine could come in all sexy and cootchie-cootchie and-- Honey, honey I'm gonna stop you right there otherwise I'll never be able to drink solid foods again I think we're gonna need a real actor Yeah, well, let's see Why don't you run on home and we'll talk in a couple of days, ok? Oh, thank you, Karen I appreciate it - Oh - Good-bye Good-bye, uh uh - Norman! - Norman! Whoo! Honey we're having auditions again so break out the rulers and I'll heat up the oils No! Karen, what about me?! I could star in your commercial! / No I'm an actor! Do I need to remind you I almost just got that part in Seven Grooms for Seven Brothers? Till that damn 15th guy showed up Honey, this is not some trashy downtown skit where you flit around in tights performing for homeless men in cardboard RVs We need a virile hunky, straight actor Uh, hello! I could totally play straight! Oh, honey, no one in the world would believe you're straight You're as gay as a clutch purse on Tony night You fell out of the gay tree hitting every gay branch on the way down And you landed on a gay guy And you did him No, no, honey your gayness can be seen from space Why, you're so gay that-- And will you be needing your own trailer? Steve, I'm sorry we haven't been here in a while I mean We meant to it's just that you know how life gets busy and exciting and gardening sort of gets pushed to the bottom of the list I wouldn't know This is all I have - So which plot's ours? - Right here Ta-da! Wow Well, our sun-dried tomatoes came in I guess it's funny that you killed everything Ok I may have gone a little overboard but I figure we can afford it because of all the money we're gonna save growing our own food Well, you don't eat vegetables so unless we can grow a Ring-Ding bush I really don't see that happening Come on.
Dig in I want to make it pretty for Squatsie Yeah, let's get in there and start making things grow But I'm gonna do it from over here because I don't want to get my new gardening clothes dirty Grace, come here, you wuss Get your fingers in the earth Connect with nature It's almost spiritual, really Aah! A worm! A worm! Kill it! Kill it! Yuh! Hey! Hey what are you doing getting dirt all over my prize-winning lettuce?! I'm sorry We just had a really close call with a worm the size of a-- a really small snake Hi, I'm Grace This is Will You know what? Let's get one thing straight, ok? I come here to be alone not to socialize with a couple of freaks growing hippie spinach So keep your crap off my plot and we'll get along fine Capisce? Did he just say, "capisce"? Whee! Ha ha ha! Oh, I love the Game Show Network Jack, when is your commercial gonna be on? You've already made us sit through eight episodes of "Match Game 73.
" If I have to watch one more I'm gonna "blank" in my shorts Oh, wait! Here it is! Here it is! Has this ever happened to you? Honey, are you awake? Of course I'm awake I haven't slept in weeks - Well, do you wanna-- - No! I'm tired, and I'm irritable You're always tired and irritable - I'm a man.
I have needs - I don't care Until we get a new mattress you're not gonna lay a hand on me Isn't there anyone out there who can help me? Why don't you just pop in the shower and help yourself? Shh! Shh! So come on down to Senor Mattress And I'll take care of all your needs Muchos gracias, Senor Mattress Gracias for everything! Honey, that was really moving You know I think I got a little misty Down there Oh! We should get going if we want to do some gardening Ok, let me just grab my hoe and I'll be ready I'm ready Honey, you were right You were totally convincing as a hetero - I was, wasn't I? - Mm-hmm And guess what? I got a little surprise for you Your first check, and, no your eyes are not deceiving you Those are two zeroes after that "1.
" - Yeah.
- And listen to this For your next commercial that "one" is going to become a "two," and that second zero will disappear.
Ok? A second commercial? I don't think I can do that, Karen Huh? Huh? What? Gin?! I-- I think I made an awful mistake I was so convincing as a hetero Now no one will ever cast me as gay What in the hell are you talking about? I'm typecast! Pigeon-chested! Corn-holed! Now I'll never get a chance to play the gay romantic lead in a Hollywood blockbuster movie Or the gay general leading his gay troops into battle And you can kiss my gay action hero franchise good-bye No ornery black police captain Will ever say to me You a loose cannon, Bruce Turn in your badge and your chaps and get your gay ass out of my precinct Ok.
All right I think I see what's happening here And, uh, here's what I'm gonna do For your next commercial I'm gonna put a "three" in front of that zero, ok? That's 30 dollars No! There's not gonna be a next commercial! And if you were any kind of friend you'd pull that one off the air! Ok.
Uh I'm gonna tell you what I told Stan yesterday in prison I ain't pullin' nothin' Since we started running that ad mattress sales have doubled To five! So you're gonna keep hawkin' those beds, and you're gonna like it! - Forget it! I quit! - Oh! Oh, look! My ride's here and it's a huff! I believe I'll leave in it! Aah! God, these bugs! Hey! Lock the gate when you leave! Last night you dinks left it open I don't want anyone swiping my prize-winning lettuce And your stinking dwarf is ruining the view from my garden Lose it! That guy is so mean! Just forget about him, Will You know, what does that guy know about sentimental attachments? Ow! Sorry - There were two of them - Oh Ow! Thanks Did you get it? Get what? Oh! This-- This is driving me crazy I'm gonna go get some bug spray You want anything? Bactine and a Dove Bar I'll see you later, Squatsie I'll count the moments till you come back, Will Ok Get away! Got 'em Hey! Will, I have some bad news What? That outfit isn't returnable? No, it's really bad So bad that, uh even a Dove Bar won't help? I'm afraid so What is it? Aah! Oh, my God! Ok, look, I know you're upset-- - How did this happen? - Will, I-- Was-- Was it him?! Was it that mean guy that told us to lose it?! Oh, this is so hard for me to say, but Yes.
Yes, it was Oh, Zandra, over here Zandra Zoggin acting teacher extraordinario-- Class is full, don't bother asking! Zandra, please sit down right here Thank you Oh, excuse me Can I get you something to drink? Some coffee or something? This better be good You're taking time away from my slow agonizing march toward death Well, I won't keep you As you know there's no one whose opinion I respect more than yours In fact I've always considered you a father figure Oh, I'm not your fag hag, McFarland I am your acting teacher And get to the point! Ok.
I just did a commercial Played a strappin' straighty with a yen for the ladies and, Zandra I was good I was too good, I think And now I'm plagued with doubt Should I compromise my career goals for literally tens of dollars? I say no! So when they asked me to do a second commercial I turned them down! And because you're my mentor I wanted you to be the first to know You may praise me You stupid little ass monkey! Ow! Ow, Zandra! My cheekbones! Ow! You turned down a paying job?! and you are far and away the worst student I've ever had And now by some miracle of God someone actually offered you a job and you turned them down?! If I still smoked I would take my Parliament and stick it in your eye! Oh, what the hell I'm just gonna jab you with this dirty fork No! No! No! No! No! Wait! Zandra, what about all that stuff you're always saying about how we need to make tough choices in our careers? Well, that only applies to people who have careers! You go back to this brainless fart who gave you this part in the first place and you get down on your knees and you beg like a gypsy in an airport for your job back! - No - Please! - No - Please! - No - Please! - No - Please! - No - Please! - No - Please! - No - Please! - No - Please!

Probably trying to swipe some of my prize-winning lettuce Hey, I got your message What are you doing in the garden?

Then what were you doing in here?! Yeah, what were you doing in here? What were you doing here? Because the-- I-- I was peeing! Ok?!
