A recently widowed neighbor gives Will a bottle of wine and advises him to "make your own special occasion". All four friends share desires that they want to accomplish before it is too late.
What Will and Grace want to doAfter Grace shares that she wants to run the marathon, Will tells him that what he actually wants is to have a child with her.Will and Grace visit a therapist regarding his confession where she admits that although she might be ready to have a baby, she is not sure if she wants to have it with Will because she still dreams for a traditional family.
As they argue back and forth in front of the therapist, they realize that even though they have "a million reasons" not to do it, they still want to.
What Jack wants to doJack wishes to perform on a Broadway play so he auditions at a local theater.
While at first he is able to convince the casting directors to give him a chance, Jack soon realizes how terrible his acting is and decides to give up then and there. He whispers how everyone keeps telling him he is not actually good and now he is "done... with all of this" as he gets off the stage.
What Karen wants to doKaren wants to have a conjugal visit with Stanley who was imprisoned 8 months prior. As she prepares herself, Karen gets a call from her husband and finds out that he had used his library time to do insider trading and as a consequence has forfeited his conjugal visit privileges and will be in jail longer than expected.
Karen is disappointed and upset at her husband, telling him how she had been hoping for their lives to start over once he gets out of jail. Karen tells him she does not think she can "do this anymore" and leaves.

- Will mentions Mrs. Friedman giving him a bottle of wine. She appeared earlier that season during the episode Star-Spangled Banter.

|Jack:||I hope I don't have any regrets like that when I'm 75.|
|Will:||I know. How do you deal with it, Karen?|
|Karen:||Oh, Wilma... I have so much money.|
|Jack:||Come on, Kar. What do you think we should get, facials or colonics?|
|Karen:||I don't know. Let's flip a coin for it. Heads or tails? Ha ha ha!|
They don't even let you turn the lights out. I can't have sex with Stan if I can see him! How am I supposed to have a conjugal watchin' that con jiggle? — Karen
|Grace:||It's my safety sperm. You know, like the safety school? You apply to college, and it's the one school you know you're gonna get into just in case everything else falls through.|
|Will:||You're saying my sperm is Florida State?|
Just 'cause it didn't work out with Danny or Nathan or Josh or Ben or Bill or Mark or Six-Toe or Unibrow... doesn't mean it won't work out with that pizza guy you've been eyeing. I'm sure you two will be very happy together, you know, with your three beautiful children: Pepperoni, Mushroom, and Extra Cheese. — Will
|Grace:||I wanna travel the world. Anywhere. Everywhere. You know, as long as it's clean and they speak English and it's safe.|
|Will:||You've just narrowed your world travel plans down to Denver.|
