Oh, don't tell me You're dad's a cop and he's on the take Let's just say I had a very good month He hit the jackpot One of Nick's greeting cards just went mug It's kind of an industry term What it means is that one of the cards I wrote is being put on a mug I probably didn't need to explain that, did I? No, Nick, that's so cool! - You really think so? - No.
What am I supposed to say? So, what'd you think?! - About what? - Our new show just premiered on OutTV! You watched it right? Sure!/ Yeah!/ You bet! Okay, good What was your favorite part? The locker room/ The shower scene/ The orgasm in the deli Okay, well, if I'm gonna check with everybody in the city, I better get going! So--so Jack works for a network? You know, I've got a script that I've been working on You think there's any way, maybe, you could pass it along to him? I mean, you know, only if you like it, of course - You want me to read it? - Yeah, if you would Oh, my God! I would love to! I'm just so flattered you'd ask God, keep your pants on He didn't propose You know, this-- this could be so great I've always wanted to write something that people didn't throw away fast, just to get to the present, you know? Hey, don't be so down on yourself Some of those cards are really cool - You think so? - No, but I got nothing to say to this guy Àª Àª & Àª & ±× Àª & ±×·¹ Àª & ±×·¹ÀÌ Àª & ±×·¹À̽º Àª & ±×·¹À̽º Àª & ±×·¹À̽º Àª & ±×·¹À̽º Àª & ±×·¹À̽º Àª & ±×·¹À̽º Àª & ±×·¹À̽º ½ÌÅ© Á¦ÀÛ ÃÖÁ¾ Å×½ºÆ® Oh, hey, Rosie, I need to have a word with Pastry Chef After the commercial I'm watching my telenovela That's an interesting set.
There's a crucifix behind every piece of furniture Okay, the twist in this story is both the mother and the daughter are whores Can I help you? Dear God, tell me you're not Pastry Chef Yeah, I'm Edward Forgive the appearance.
I don't like to be constrained by clothing while I bake If the health department would let me, I'd bake in the nude Maybe you should send the health department a picture They might make an exception.
Uh, ahem! I'm--I'm Will Truman, Karen Walker's attorney - There's no easy way to say this-- - Taste this That is the perfect combination of sugar, lemon zest and finger - So what can I do for you? - Well, I, uh, came here to, um-- Do you even like your job? Yeah, I love my job.
I mean, it's my life And without it, I'd be deported Somebody works out, huh? I thought lawyers were supposed to pass the bar, not lift it I'm dirty, and I don't even care God, it smells so good in here! I've only been here five minutes, and already I could eat everything in sight See, for me, the joy isn't in the eating It's in the making.
Here That's it Now put your body into it You're very good at this Have you ever kneaded something before? Never more than right now! Uh, Jack, there's a Grace Adler here to see you Thank you, Elizabeth Just show her in, please Uh, you know my name's Dave, right? Listen, it's bad enough I'm the only one here with a straight assistant Do not make me call you that ridiculous name! - Yeah, but-- - That will be all, Elizabeth! I-- I am impressed! Out TV is real I mean, all those people you said you work with, I can see them too I know, isn't it great, Grace? And look-- check out this phone I have full access to lines one and two, whenever they're not in use All I have to do is fill out a form, submit it for approval, and within 24 hours I may or may not be talking to someone Wow.
You know, I can sort of do the same thing on my cell phone But you don't have the forms So what can I do for you, Grace? What's the news on the Rialto? UmI'm here about Nick Uh, he wants to break into TV writing And so he gave me this script to pass along to you.
Will you read it? Of course I will, dear Is it any good? Oh, is it any good? It's--it's touching, heartwarming, and I know that this is a cliche but it--it made me wanna be a better person - You didn't read it, did you? - No, but I told him I did What if I read it and I don't like it? I mean, it could ruin my entire relationship And it's not like that didn't happen before - When I was in college, I dated-- - A homo? No! A guy in a rock band And I went to see him, and it turned out he was-- - A homo? - No! He was terrible And it was a big turnoff, and I dumped him, and I don't wanna do the same thing to Nick.
So please read it Sure thing.
But, Grace Where's that guy from the rock band now? - I don't know - Grace Where is he? He's a chorus boy on the Queen Mary II - William, I need to speak with you! - Hey, Karen So I get a hankering to go out to Fortunoff's in Manhasset to buy colorful plastic plates But when I get out to the helipad to take the chopper, what do I discover? Helicopter Pilot has been fired Okay, I thought it was okay to fire Helicopter Pilot seeing as--as you don't own a helicopter - You said you were gonna fire Pastry Chef! - Yes, about that, I gave it some thought, and as your lawyer, I believe that in these uncertain times, having a pastry chef on permanent staff just makes solid economic sense What? There is something going on here I smell liquor on my breath You're drunk! No, Karen, I just-- I met him, and I watched him work The man is a genius.
He's--he's an artist I mean, would you fire Picasso? I would, and I did! He put both breasts on one side of my body I wouldn't take it from Plastic Surgeon, and I wouldn't take it from him! Karen, I strongly recommend that you keep this man on staff, and that you give him the weekend off in case someone wants to take him to Montauk Wait a second.
I think I see what's going on here You are looking out for my best interest Thank you! Ah, you're welcome.
Oh, and on a completely different topic, could I borrow your place in Montauk this weekend? Well, sure, honey take the chopper So, we are here to talk about your script This is the moment of truth - Did you like it? - I wrote it Of course you did! We have to ask.
Legal reasons What about you, Jack? Did you like it? I liked some parts Some parts were just okay Some parts were a little tricky What specifically? Okay, well, I really, um I liked the character of, um Fidet Oot That says "Fade Out" - You didn't read it, did you, Jack? - I'm sorry.
"Kevin Hill" was on Me digs, Taye Diggs And you're supposed to be a professional Well, thank you for wasting my time Well, I'm sorry! Don't get mad at me Grace didn't read it either I mean, she did read it either Elizabeth! Elizabeth! Damn it, both lines are busy! - Hey, how was the meeting? - It was awful He didn't even read my script! And then he pretended he did Can you believe that? No I mean, what kind of person would do something like that? Jack Let's go to dinner.
Come on W-w-wait, Grace.
I mean, you read my script, right? Who's your favorite character? My favorite character is you No, no, no, no.
I really wanna know Who was it? Jack told me you didn't read the script, Grace I am so sorry It was just that I-- I was scared that I might think it was bad And that it would hurt our relationship, and I like you too much to risk that So, actually, if you think about it, the reason I had for not reading it was actually romantic No, it's not It's incredibly insulting Wait, you can't leave I don't know if I can get out of this skirt by myself Why is Nick so mad at me? I don't deserve this I'm a good person I give and I give and I give - That's mine - Learn from me.
Try giving a little! Hello, Grace.
I had my meeting with Nick You're welcome What is wrong with you? You told him I didn't read the script?! He told you?! I can't believe that you sold me out! Why didn't you just read it, fool?! All right, here's the thing I was worried that if I didn't like it, it would hurt my relationship with Nick That's my reason! Great! Now he's mad at both of us! What are we gonna do?! Wow, that's a toughie Somebody's mad at you for not reading a script If only there were a way to scan the letters on the page and somehow relay the information to your brain Uh, there is It's called Braille Grace, read the script I know I should, but I'm just-- I'm so worried that I'm not gonna like it It's so heavy It's about euthanasia Oh, really? That's a fascinating issue I've given it some thought, and I think I'd wanna be kept alive, even if it was on machines Yeah, not gonna happen These are so good Where'd you get these? Karen's pastry chef.
I was supposed to give him the sack Instead, that's where we ended up I don't know that I approve, Will, unless he's hot Hot? Are you kidding me? He doesn't even have to put the cookies in the oven He just walks by them and winks Wow, so this is your bedroom, huh? Heh, if these walls could talk I guess to you, they do Listen, Karen, there's something I have to tell you I wasn't completely honest about why I couldn't fire Pastry Chef Oh, honey, never mind That's okay You know, after you talked him up so much, I went down the kitchen, and you're right He is very, very talented - Oh, yeah? You think so? - Oh, I absolutely do - What is that? - What? Where? Please tell me a schoolteacher helped you over a fence Oh, my tart's ready.
