  • Grace's Leo is back...?

    When I saw the commercial that Grace would see Leo on the airplane, I just had to watch this episode. It was a pretty funny episode, and we got to see some "closure" for Grace. I didn't want them to get back together. I don't like Leo so much. He cheated on her, so that tells all. Karen and Rosario are finally back together, just like old times. The thing with banana, hilarious! It was a cool episode, can't wait for the next one.moreless
  • This episode was very cute, not enough Leo. I was too sad when they decided not to see london together!

    I loved all the flirting and all the flight attendant stuff, and the buh-naw-nuh part,all the little bits that made me laugh. I loved when Will got anyhting he wanted because if there was a \"Will\" there was way. What saddened me was there was not enough Leo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I love Harry Connick Jr, so I was utterly depressed when they didn\'t go see London, or anything. I know she had his baby and they got back together, but I was still sad. I wish more WAG episdoes could be mroe like this, unlike the worst episode ever, the stupid, plotless, and pathetic finale.moreless
  • The best episode of the season so far.

    I can not find anything bad about this episode at all. When I first saw the commercial for it showing Grace and Leo kissing, I was dreading that they would be getting back together. I loved how Grace was strong enough to let him go at the end of the episode. The Jack and Karen storyline in this episode was amazing in my opinion. Seeing Karen replace Rosario with Leni, I definitely had a feeling that that situation wouldn't last, and I was so glad when Karen re-hired Rosario, because it's just not the same without the two of them together. Hopefully this episode is a sign of extraordinary episodes to come so the series can end with a bang.moreless
  • Finally the show is getting better. I was a bit tired of the characters all being so nasty to each other and themselves. I am a big fan of the relationship between Karen and Rosario.moreless

    This show has consistantly been better this year. Perhaps the writers have realized you have to have characters to care about, for a while the characters were just too nasty. I hope Leo and Grace end up together. Please more episodes like this. Rosario rocks. She should be given more screen time.
  • Why do i feel like they got the old writers back ?!

    After all this time, will and grace werent doing well.. i mean the writings were so bad before.. but Finnaly thanks to " love is in the airplane" we here finnaly got to laugh so hard.

    Well i think that they should just keep the show funny just like they did last week.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Karen: Oh, Jackie. Great news, Jackie. I've got my little Rosie back. Now the only problem is Leni. Honey, would you be a dear and fire her for me?
      Jack: Okay. But I'm gonna need a heavy, blunt object.
      Karen: Fine. Rosie, go with him.

    • Rosario: [OVERLAPPING] How dare you talk to me like that! I don't take this from garbage from you!
      Karen: [OVERLAPPING] You waste of space! You leave more hair in the tub than you clean out it! I could shove a dust rag up a baboon's ass...
      Rosario: [OVERLAPPING] You are a nasty, disgusting pig!
      Karen: [OVERLAPPING] ...and he'd do a better job than you, you big armadillo!
      Karen God, I missed you so much!
      Rosario: I missed you too, mommy!

    • Will: You have no idea what I have been through since I smuggled you into first class. I got into a relationship, I broke up a relationship, somehow I became a flight attendant, everybody wants headsets, and of course, they only have twenties. So, you better tell me that you at least had a decent conversation with Leo.
      Grace: I slept with him
      Will: My God, you are a gay man.

  • NOTES (1)

    • This is one of the few episodes in which Will & Grace's apartment is not seen at all. The set-up at the studio for filming this episode was different. Instead of W&G's apartment in the center set, the airplane set was there. The swing sets (side sets) where Karen's Manse bedroom and the coffee shop (that scene was cut).


    • Jack: You'll have to catch me first, Scary Poppins.

      This is a funny reference to the famous nanny Mary Poppins, created by P. L. Travers in a series of books, but most well known from the film starring Julie Andrews.

    • Title: Love Is In The Airplane

      This is an obvious allusion to the 1978 John Paul Young song "Love Is In The Air".
