Robert Kariakin was credited as Waiter, but no waiter appears in this episode.
Goof: When making her dramatic exit, Grace leaves her wrap which is folded on the chair near the door.
Continuity error: In this episode, Jack says that he has known Will for 17 years, and in the last episode Will claimed to be 41 years old; that would mean he met Jack when he was 24 years old. However in the season 3 episode, "Lows in the Mid-Eighties," he met Jack while he was in college in 1985, which was 20 years ago.
Jack: Would you say that I have a swimmer's body?
Will: Unless it's in a trunk in your closet, I'd say no.
Malcolm: Did you know the Richmond Hill landfill is the highest elevation on the Eastern Seaboard?
Dale: Yeah, you can see it from my living room window.
Karen: Well, I think it sounds fantastic. But I don't know if Princess Grace over here will be up for dinner at a landfill.
Grace: Actually, it sounds wonderful, I love a good meal and I love a good dump.
Karen: Hey, J. Hey, WAG.
Karen: Will And Grace. WAG.
Will: Just glad my name isn't Frank.
(after Grace agrees to go on a blind date)
Karen: Yeah! This is going to make my boyfriend so happy!
Will: Aren't you a little 'mature' to be referring to someone as your boyfriend.
Karen: (over her shoulder as she leaves) At least I can swim, jackass.
Karen: Malcolm, darling, would you please turn the car around?
Malcolm: Why? We're turning left on Richmond.
Karen: We're turning RIGHT!
Grace: Oh my God. This is so delicious. I have been living with a gay guy for so long I forgot what the skin of chicken tastes like.
Dale: I love to travel. Although I usually spend all my time in the hotel, watching tv and ordering room service.
Grace: Well, yeah. Why else go to foreign countries? So you can watch MTV in funny languages and see what their Coke tastes like.
Dale: I thought I was the only one who did that.
Grace: No, I'm a huge Coke fiend.
Karen: You are chewin' on my last nerve, froggy!
Malcolm: You are 8 feet of pain-in-the-ass stuffed into a 4 foot sack!
Title: The Old Man and the Sea
