Synopsis

The Suck-on-it Cup

Both Will and Grace have been feeling disconnected from each other after she got married and moved out. With hopes of regaining the special connection they had, they hold their annual game night with Rob and Ellen, and Joe and Larry where they always win. They perform poorly and during a timeout while playing Celebrity, admit that they have lost their "homojo"-- a word both of them separately thought of-- and realize that they must never lose touch especially on the small insignificant things "that people really care about". They hug and promise to always make the effort. Will and Grace end up winning the game after Grace guessed "Nancy McKeon" with Will's clue, "bangs", in three seconds.

"Why do you make me do this to you?"

After moving out of the Walker mansion as result of Stanley cheating on her, Karen asks Jack to retrieve one last box of personal effects in her huge closet. There he runs into Lorraine, Stanley's mistress, which he first mistakes for a Hungarian maid. They quickly bond and realize they have many things in common, including success from other people's money.

Jack asks Karen if they could all be friends but she angrily forbids him to ever see Lorraine again. Jack is with Lorraine when Karen goes to the mansion for to confront her. In the end, Jack chooses to stay with Karen because according to him, they have "a special bond" and because "it takes four of [Lorraine's] boobs to fill one of [Karen's] cups". After they leave, Jack peeks back and tells Lorraine, "if Karen dies, I'll totally call you."

Notes

  • Ellen mentions Rob sleeping with Grace, which they admitted during the episode An Affair to Forget.
  • Lorraine's first actual appearance.
  • Karen's enormous closet was previously seen in Sweet and Sour Charity.

Cultural references

  • Jack exclaims "does a gay bear have anonymous sex in the woods?", which is a play on the rhetorical phrase "does a bear shit in the woods?" as response to a question where the answer is similar to "of course".
  • Will answers Nancy McKeon when Grace gives the clue "Bangs" during a game of Celebrity. Although this connection is implied to have been based on an inside joke, McKeon had long bangs playing Jo Polniaczek on the 80s sitcom The Facts of Life.
