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.





  • This episode was only 26 minutes long.
  • Karen's engagement ring actually came from Martin Katz, on loan to the show.


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. Gracehearing 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?

I'm not gonna let a couple of Ellen-lovin', Jenny Shimizu calendar-buyin', Uggs in the summertime-wearin', lady lovers scare us off. Will

Just because I talk to the dead doesn't mean I can't look good. John Edwardson his good physique

You're, like, my favorite medium. Although, in person, you look more like a Large. Jackmeeting John Edward
