Will & Grace sparks Jack’s latest celebrity feud and takes Grace’s relationship with Noah to the next level. Let’s recap with the five best quotes!

After two emotionally dense episodes of Will & Grace, the sitcom lightens the mood with a delightful episode of chaos. Just when Grace thought she was through with secrets hindering her relationships, she discovers that Noah has been keeping a rather large one.

Will learns the secret, and, of course, he can’t hide it from Grace for very long. But the secret’s unraveling is a blessing in disguise when it inspires the dropping of three important words.

Meanwhile, Jack finds himself back together with his first love: the stage. He’s putting on a one-man show based on Abraham Lincoln’s supposed love affairs, and a twist of events leads to Karen producing the project.

Before long, she’s replacing Jack with Jon Cryer, who doesn’t know just what he’s walked into with Jack and Karen. The behind-the-scenes drama at Two and Half Men probably wasn’t even this tense. Let’s recap the latest episode of Will & Grace with the gang’s five sickest burns!

More from NBC

1. “Karen, are you not high?”

When Karen waltzes into the apartment and starts tossing around unironic compliments like they’re pills, you have to wonder what’s wrong with her. Will genuinely worries that Karen’s off her self-prescribed cocktails when she praises Grace’s wardrobe and applauds Will’s comedy.

But it turns out they were right to be suspicious: She needs a tax shelter. As soon as Jack bursts through the door and announces his one-man show, she’s found her investment.

2. “Turns out Teddy Roosevelt wasn’t the only president with a thing for bears!”

Unlike “Just Jack” or any iteration of Jack’s former one-man stage performances, his latest production centers on “Gaybraham Twinkoln,” a fictional (not to Jack) retelling of Abraham Lincoln’s gay love affairs.

Karen watches Jack prepare the show from the stands without a care in the world. It doesn’t matter if the show flops and loses money — that’s what she’s in it for. However, Karen shutters at the thought of her reputation taking a hit when she sees her name strewn across the poster. Better reel this in, Walker!

3. “Your play sucks harder than a girl with daddy issues.”

Karen doesn’t mince words once she barks at Jack to ditch the “Jack-ting” and start acting. The two spar back and forth in an athletic scene of comedy that could only be pulled off by Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes.

Jack and Karen take off various articles of figurative clothing, such as Karen’s producer hat, to sling absolute insults at each other. At one point, Jack interrupts their rapid-fire banter to praise Karen’s quip. But their working relationship suffers… as does Jon Cryer.

4. “If I turned another guy gay, I’m jumping out the window.”

When Grace realizes that Will has been avoiding Noah out of fear of his terrifyingly opinionated personality, she Parent Traps them into breaking bread. During their get-to-know-you dinner, Will overhears Noah on the phone with a girl named Katie, and he assumes Noah has been two-timing Grace. In actuality, Noah has a 12-year-old daughter, whom he omitted from Grace due to the fast progression of their relationship.

Will gives him 24 hours to tell Grace, but the next day comes and no secrets are spilled, but soup is on Grace’s suede skirt. Because Will and Grace know each other so well, Noah’s secret naturally comes out, and Grace’s confusion snowballs into a thirst for answers. Well, she bags them and then some.

Noah, who’s made a career out of pessimism and a hard exterior, gets vulnerable and tells Grace he loves her. The West Side Curmudgeon’s a big ‘ol softy after all.

5. “I can honestly say it’s as good as anything you’ve ever done.”

Once Karen watches Jon Cryer not understand the edits she made to Jack’s play, the conscience that resides deep inside her heart and only peeks its head out every so often speaks up. She realizes that Jack’s creative expression and integrity as a performer, no matter how objectively un-Emmy worthy, is more important than the jeers of the public. Karen dumps Duckie and steps aside to allow Jack to put on his show as it was meant to be, complete with subtle shade that went way over his head.
