And I wonder why I'm still single.

After going out with Leo on a date, Grace is confused on what to tell Will because of their promise not to date anymore now that they are trying to have kids. Grace follows Karen's advice and asks Will for more time and avoid the pressure.

However, Will later finds out that Leo is still dating Grace and confronts her about it, ending up in a serious argument about her commitment. He accuses her of being a flake even on the biggest moments of their relationship; she points out how he hates it most when she is happy. As Will walks out, Will angrily throws Grace out of their apartment, telling her, "you don't live here anymore."

Jack:You're a father.
Jack:Oh, difference of one letter.
