  • Jack graduates his nursing course - only to discover he wants to act...

    This is the first episode where Grace's absences become very obvious (Debra Messing was pregnant at the time). Usually there is a lot going on - and you don't really notice who's missing but this episode only had one main story - and this was a mistake. Jack is about to graduate his nursing course - but the episode becomes very focused on Will's obsession with his 'writing' abilities. This becomes very tiresome and there is a scene where Karen threatens to put out Will's eye if he goes on about his 'writing' - and Megan looks bored by the storyline - and so was I! A few silly jokes does not make an episode and the story looked padded.moreless
  • a great installment to the mantle of great W&G episodes!

    this is one of my favorite episodes. we learn that will wanted to be a playwright originally, and his play sucked. we see karen at her funniest. we learn she guest starred on a 2 episode arc on dynasty with diannh carroll, and she said that d. carroll could not remember her blocking. funny moment, and we also see karen be turned on by will & kiss him. we hear that karen feels superior to rosario even more when she tells her that she owns her.

    • (during a speech at Jack's graduation)
      : Oh, my God, I just realized we forgot to wake up Grace! Should we call her?
      Karen: Honey, if you were at home missing this would you want someone to call you?

    • Rosario: What's going on?
      Karen: Oh, let me get you up to speed. I own you. And what we're doing is none of your business.
      Rosario: Lady, don't be surprised if your martinis smell of Clorox tonight.

    • Will: Hey, lookin' good. Pants look a little tight, though.
      Jack: No, they're not. And stop trying to project your morbid obesity onto me.
      Will: Okay. Guess I've been wearing them wrong. You know, buttoning and zipping them all these years.

    • Karen: Oh, gosh. I'm proud of our little boy. Graduating from school. Could I be honest with you, Will? I've always thought that Jack was an idiot.
      Will: Well, now that idiot will hold other people's lives in the palm of his hand.
