Notes (3)

  • The scene with Grace and Nicholas was interjected in the middle of a longer scene with Will and Jack because the crew didn't want to end the first act on the "proposal." It creates a goof where Jack is holding the same clothing he was holding in the same spot he was in when they cut away.

  • Patrick Dempsey was married to the mother of Corey Parker who played Josh, Grace's boyfriend, during the previous season.

  • Jeremy Piven was asked at the last minute to be on the show after the crew went through three other people. It's unknown who.

Trivia (4)

  • It's odd that Grace claimed to go to Sunday School for 10 years when she was younger because Sunday School is a practice in Christian churches and Grace is Jewish. Sabbath services in Jewish synagogues are held on Friday nights and Saturday mornings and children typically attend Hebrew School, not Sunday School.

  • In this episode Will says that the book Rabbit, Run is one of his favorites. This is the second time he's mentioned being a fan of author John Updike, the first was in the season 2 episode, "Guess Who's Not Coming To Dinner".

  • Patrick Dempsey makes the comment "You and Jerry Lewis need to work on your act." Two years later, Sean Hayes played Jerry Lewis in a TV Movie about the career he had with Dean Martin.

  • Jack is now a sales associate at Banana Republic, which network heads were pushing for since it was odd that Jack never held a steady job in the series run.

Allusions (4)

  • Grace: So, where's Paula? Paula: I'm here. Hi, Grace. Grace: Hey, hey Paula. This is an allusion to the 1963 hit "Hey, Hey Paula" by the duo Paul & Paula.

  • Jack: His pants are ready...have lovelier words ever been uttered? Will: Say it soft and it's almost like praying. This is a reference to the song "Maria" from West Side Story.

  • Jack: Look at him, Will. He's perfection. So loverly. This is a reference to the musical My Fair Lady and its song "Wouldn't It Be Loverly".

  • When asked about the threesome Grace responds, "It was fantastic. There were so many arms and legs everywhere, Hindus were praying to us." This is an allusion to the multi-armed Hindu deity, Vishnu, one of the trinity of Gods, whose role is "the Preserver."
