Loose Lips Sink Relationships is the fifth episode of the fourth season and 71st overall.
We don't do enough Math
After being tested, Grace and Nathan share the number of their sexual partners and find out that although Grace has been with more men, Nathan has had sex much more times than Grace.
After separately consulting with Karen, Grace worries that she and Nathan are not having enough sex and Nathan worries that they need to share something deeper. As Grace chases Nathan around the apartment trying to have sex with him, Will tells them that they should not have taken advise from Karen and their relationship is fine.
Think I might be purdy
In order to take a night off from his new work at Barneys, Jack sets his boss Dorleen up with Will under false pretenses--she thinks Will is straight and is interested in her; Will thinks she is eyeing him to be a "real people" model for the store.
The plan backfires when Will walks in on Dorleen in her bra, believing he is there to audition. Jack gets demoted to being the hand-cream guy, the "lowest form of life at Barneys".

- Karen and Nathan imply doing kegel exercise.
- Will says they have been getting tested "since Frankie went to Hollywood", referencing the 80s band Frankie Goes to Hollywood whose vocalist Holly Johnson was diagnosed with HIV in 1991 shortly after the band broke up.
