  • The four major actors settle down in their wacky roles.

    Will and Grace end up living together - after Grace pulls out of marrying Danny. Its ironic that Will identifies a potential problem with this arrangement (ie that Will and Grace use each other as a crutch when things go bad) and this issue lasts all the way through the show. Jack and Karen meet each other for the first time - and its a hoot! This also sets up the relationship between the 2 characters that lasts for the show's duration. Karen is meant to help Grace get customers - but this rarely ever happens...

    Jack's one liners start in the first real episode - as does Karen's love of alcohol and pills. All 4 actors already seem to be in touch with their characters - and each other - and this starts the show off on a very funny note which lasts for years.
