  • Grace lands a job decorating one of Will's clients. Grace takes a little bit over the top to the ordinary eye. Will messes it up for Grace. He accidentally got Grace fired because of Will and Graces little fights. In the end they make a contract.

    Trivia (3)

    • Does the red sweater Karen is wearing at the office look familiar? It's the same sweater we saw her pull out of a shopping bag to show to the cash-strapped Grace a few episode earlier, in "A New Lease On Life".

    • This is the first time we hear about Jack's ongoing project - "Just Jack."

    • You can see several posters for shows-- the obligatory Judy Garland one, 42nd Street, Guys & Dolls, etc.-- in the background, despite the fact that it's just a bar, not a venue. No self-respecting small gay bar would be without its show posters!

    Allusions (4)

    • Will: It's a bad habit. I can control myself. Grace: You know, Betty Ford set up a nice little place in the desert based on that very statement. A reference to the famous Betty Ford Center in California, a rehab clinic to the stars and others suffering from various forms of addiction.

    • Grace: Oooh, not liking this. Will: Coriander Grace: Scary Spice. An obvious reference to the Spice Girls, the British girl group, all of whom were given "spice" names by their creator. Scary Spice was Melanie Brown, who was the loudest and brashest member of the group.

    • Jack: (To Karen) You're nasty, Ms. Jackson! This is a reference to Janet Jackson's song "Nasty", where she sings, "No, my first name ain't baby, it's Janet--Ms. Jackson if you're nasty."

    • Jack: ...Or do I go with the Julie Newmar basic-black? This is a quick reference to Julie Newmar's Catwoman look on the campy 1960s version of Batman.
