Synopsis

Will and Grace's new apartment

Ep 06 18-0

Will and Grace have moved into their new apartment and are enjoying how much privacy they have as they simultaneously have dates come over and not be aware of each other. However they soon find out it's too big for just both of them and they decide to get back their old apartment now inhabited by Rob and Ellen. Their hopes are ruined when Ellen finally goes to the delivery room and they realize they will never give the apartment now that they have baby.

As Will and Grace mourn over how unfair they have been to their friends, Ellen changes her mind and wants to move back to New Jersey, giving back the apartment to Will and Grace.

Jack sets Karen up to see her estranged mother again who works as a waitress at a bar. Karen recalls her childhood to Jack saying her mother used her as a mere prop to scam people, causing her to resent her memories with Lois. Jack however reasons out that soon it may be too late for Karen just like how it was too late for him when he found out his real father is dead, so the two women reconcile. Soon enough, Lois asks Karen for one more ploy to scam a dying man.

Notes

  • Rob and Ellen live on Will and Grace's apartment for a week.
  • Grace mentions that there really is a "crazy man who cuts women's hair" in their neighborhood. We learn later in Bully Woolley that Jack cuts locks of hair from famous Broadway singers to make a wig so Grace may well be referring to Jack here.
  • Ellen recalls the time Will and Grace made her and Rob try to eat dim sum in I Never Promised You An Olive Garden.
  • As Karen tells Jack her childhood with Lois, she does not mention her sister.
  • Lois makes a similar remark as Karen when she quickly asks "What's going on? What's happening? Why aren't you moving?", an old habit of Karen during the early seasons.

Cultural references

  • Lois mentions that the man she is trying to con sold the now multibillion dollar company Enron

What's going on? What's happening? Why aren't you moving? Lois

I cannot believe I let you talk me into doing this, trying to get some poor sap to sign his will over to you before he drops dead. No decent woman does that after 35! Karen

I'll have a wine with a beer back and a vodka with a beer front. Karen

It makes me sick to think I'm gonna help you bilk a man out of his hard-earned money... That reminds me, I gotta call Stan. Karen
