Episode Quotes
Will: Grace is fragile, okay. She needs encouragement, and, and, and lies.

Karen: (To Will) I saw you and your new boyfriend last night at the theater. Yeah, between the Jews on stage and the homos in the audience it was like paying a hundred bucks to hang out here.

Cultural References
Episode Title: Fred Astaire and Ginger Chicken.

This is an obvious reference to the dancers Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.

Jack: You're fired.

This is a reference to Donald Trump's trademark line on "The Apprentice." Jack even does the classic Trump hand movement as he says this.

Jack: America has narrowed it down to three finalists. Meanwhile, my insults to the contestants have earned me quite a following.

This is a reference to the FOX reality show "American Idol." The insults part is a reference to Simon Cowell, the show's "mean judge."

Episode References
In this episode Jack teaches Karen dirty dancing -- similar to what she taught him in "Between a Rock and Harlin's Place".
