Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Hilarious episode!

    I absolutely loved this episode. It was very hilarious. The fine example of Will vs. Grace with their personality. At first, when watching this episode, it makes you question Will and Grace's friendship because you can clearly see how different they are by how they treat their new neighbor. Then, at the end, it all evens out when they go back to the neighbors, apoligize, then join him (Ned) for a teaparty with him and his stuffed animals. Then, Jack and Karen were awesome in this episode, too. The part when Jack's co-worker asks "oh what is that ridiculous plastic thing doing back?" Then Jack answers: "Well, she's back and she brought her Cher doll with her." You would and I highly recommend to see the episode to understand the joke and that joke right there alone cheered me up enough to laugh about Jack and Karen "problems" and Will and Grace "problems". I love this episode!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • The blurb Grace says to try to avoid Ned in the elevator as the doors are closing ("Oh, huh, what, I can't stop it...") is the same thing Will did to her when she was trying to catch the elevator to tag along on a date in the season 4 episode "Jingle Balls".

    • This is the first appearance Jack's Cher doll in almost 4 years.

    • Continuity Goof: Will & Grace state that they don't have people they like over for dinner, including Joe & Larry and Rob & Ellen. However, Rob & Ellen are over for dinner in the season 1 episodes "Pilot" and "Alley Cats" and in the season 4 episode "Someone Old, Someplace New." Grace also has Rob and Ellen over for a disastrous dinner in the season 2 episode "Guess Who's Not Coming To Dinner," where they make it pretty clear that they prefer Will's cooking.

    • Goof: The elevator buttons were previously on the right side, but in this episode they are on the left side.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Karen: It's always been my dream to amass the world's largest private collection of scrap copper wire, and make it into The Guinness Book of World Records.
      Rosario: I guess World's Biggest Bitch was already taken.

    • Grace: Mmm. This envelope tastes kinda good. Taste the envelope.
      Will: Stop eating the mail, Grace.
      Grace: I'll stop eatin' it when they stop makin' it so tasty.

    • Jimmy: (referring to the Cher doll) Ugh, that ridiculous plastic thing is back?
      Jack: (standing near Karen) Yes, she's back, and she brought my Cher doll with her!

    • Will: What's wrong with you?
      Grace: What's wrong with me? You're the one that's being all nice to a stranger, fool!
      Will: What's wrong with being nice to him? He's our neighbor.
      Grace: Follow the logic Will. First we're nice to him, suddenly we're picking up his newspaper, then we're watering his plants. Before you know it, there's a fire in the building and we're the ones who have to make sure he "got out okay." I'd rather find out on the evening news, thank you.
      Will: I'm not saying that I wouldn't trample over him on the way out... but while he's alive would it kill us to be nice to him?

  • NOTES (2)


    • Episode Title: Company

      The episode title comes from the Stephen Sondheim song of the same name, which can be heard coming from Ned's apartment after he turns down dinner with Will & Grace.
