Will & Grace: Swish Out Of Water

Grace finds it impossible to put up with her mother Bobbi's constant nitpicking, so Jack takes it upon himself to help her because, according to him, no one knows how to be a good daughter better than a gay son. Jack subjects her to a barrage of Bobbi-esque insults until Grace finally learns what her mother really means underneath her harsh words. Meanwhile, Will's first case at the Coalition for Justice is about tenants' rights, and the slumlord turns out to be none other than Karen.

Episode Quotes
Will: So, we both behaved badly out of pettiness and spite.
Karen: Yeah. And maybe a little 'roid rage. (Sigh) Oh. Honey, why do we do it? Why are we always at each other? Can you imagine what Nora Ephron would do with our story?
Will: No, but I'm sure it would feel familiar. And we could sleep through most of it. Look, I'm gonna make a call. I'm gonna get you out of this.
Karen: No, honey. That's okay. I'll finish out my week. It'll be good for me. Anyway, thanks for stopping by. I'm gonna run up to the roof and meet the girls.
Will: Mind if I keep you company for a bit?
Karen: Why, no. I'd like that. You know, just to be on the safe side, let's talk real loudly about how your dad's black.

Episode References
Bobbi Adler was last seen in Season 7's "It's a Dad, Dad, Dad, Dad World".
