East Side Story is the seventeenth episode of the sixth season and the 139th overall.
Will and Grace ride the success of their recent real-estate venture to expand to the East Side but clash with the reigning champs of "apartment flippers" -- lesbians Deirdre and Monet. Fighting against their new competition's intimidation tactics, the enterprising duo must rely on Will's masculine sex appeal in the hopes of dividing the same-sex real-estate moguls. Meanwhile, Karen seeks the spiritual guidance of John Edward in order to comfort her guilt over her recent engagement.

Spare me the mumbo-jumbo about heart and feelings. I am a rational, thinking woman, and I have come here to talk to a ghost. — Karen
|Grace:||There was a time when I thought about being a lesbian, but it seemed like a lot of extra work.|
|Deirdre:||Well, it is a commitment.|
|Will:||Wow. That's hot. Women. Sexy. Yum. What time is it?|
|Monet:||God, you are such a good kisser. You kiss like a girl.|
|Will:||I throw like one too.|
Monet is fine. I mean, no one does more with black and cement, but how many apartments can you sell to Moby? —
I thought that was a myth. Like the weapons of mass destruction. — Grace, hearing about the Flipping Dykes
|Grace:||I guess I just figured since she was my favorite aunt, if anyone was gonna rob her blind, it would be me.|
|Deirdre:||Well, Grace, there's no room for emotion in business. Or anywhere in life.|
|Will:||Look, on Animal Planet, why is it that the pumas always single out the one limpy gazelle for dinner?|
|Grace:||Ugh, there's gonna be nature in our plan?|
Just because I talk to the dead doesn't mean I can't look good. — John Edwards, on his good physique
You're, like, my favorite medium. Although, in person, you look more like a Large. — Jack, meeting John Edward
