I Do. Oh, No, You Di-in't is the two-part 23rd episode of the sixth season and 139th overall. Debra Messing, who had just given birth to her son is absent in this episode, though her character is referred to several times.

Karen and Lyle get married in Vegas with all of her friends (except Grace) present. Jennifer Lopez makes an appearance as her wedding singer.


Karen and Lyle head to Las Vegas for their elopement, accompanied by Will and Jack. (Grace being noticeably absent because she is "designing a sex room for a member of The View"). It soon becomes apparent that there are disagreements between the couple about the nature of their wedding and marriage (including Lyle's insistence on serving light beer and having Karen take his last name, and Karen wanting to walk down the aisle to "Smack My Bitch Up" instead of the wedding march.)

Karen encounters Jennifer Lopez in the bathroom, and requests she sings at their wedding, which she accepts due to her ties with Rosario.


"Oh, I'm sorry. You know, you see a white girl in a bathroom, you just assume."

Leo arrives in Las Vegas, and Will is confused by his hostility, and even more so when he shows up at the wedding drunk and refuses to return to New York to see Grace. Upon interrogation by Will, Leo admits to kissing another woman in Cambodia.

Meanwhile, one of Jennifer Lopez's back-dancers is injured when slipping on a shrimp cocktail. Needing a last minute replacement, she recruits Jack. After the performance she asks him to accompany her on her tour, which he excitedly accepts.

Will convinces Leo to call Grace and tell her about kissing another woman, and when he does, Grace is referenced as having told him she "never wants to see him again". Will is confused by Grace's reaction, before Leo informs him that he actually slept with someone else. Will is angered by the revelation of Leo's adultery, telling him "You're on your own."

Karen and Lyle are married, but during the reception, she realizes she does not want to compromise her identity and lifestyle to be with Lyle, and announces during her speech that she wants a divorce.

I have a big surprise for Grace and Leo when they get here. I upgraded their room. And I sent champagne and had them sprinkle rose petals on their bed. Well, they didn't have rose petals, so French fries. I figured that would get Grace into bed faster. Will

I'm dying to go gambling. You know, I got 112,000 in Cambodia money. That's almost four bucks of fun. Leo Markus

Marion:Oh, Lyle, too bad our father isn't alive to see this.
