  • One of my favorites!

    i thought this has got to be one of the greatest season. it was heartfelt, and amazingly funny. will & vince are a great couple. i even originally thought grace & leo were a hot couple, but when leo cheated i wanted him gone. even tho will & vince are gay, they are a nice couple and i was mad to see vince leave him, not long after this episode. this family in this episode was incredibly funny, they had the lesbian daughter, the mother, the older looking 16 year old son who got to feel karen's enormous rack, and grace's. . .assets. it was so hot that part. i love this episode, and i love will & grace & jack & karen!

    I LOVE YOU GUYS!moreless
