The cut off point in syndication is when Grace walks in, sees all the guys on Will's bed and says "Oh, my God. I've turned another one." The opening credits for "part 2" appear after Will says Hanna's daddy's are losers.
This episode makes reference to Jack being a doctor. Eventually he does become a nurse in Season 6.
This episode introduces the character of Jack's biological son Elliot, who becomes a regular during the next season.
Goof: In the first couple of scenes (the coffee house & back at the apartment), the right sleeve cuff of Grace's shirt changes from "messed up" (folded under) to straight and "fixed" quite often.
When Vicky (Nathan's ex) comes into his bedroom she leaves the door partway open. But when she goes to leave, she has to reopen the door.
This marks the third appearance of Val Bassett, played by Molly Shannon. After her Season 2 appearance, she was asked to come back and do Val again. She reprised the role several times throughout the series.
The bald guy looking down Molly Shannon's chest is writer/producer Adam Barr.
Anyone notice that Sean had his head turned away for a little extra long time when he was pushing Molly out the door? That's because he couldn't stop laughing at the scene. This is the best out of 12 takes.
The Atom Bar was named for the show's writer/producer Adam Barr.
This marks the first appearance of Woody Harrelson as Nathan, which was quickly turned into a 2-season role.
So just for the sake of continunity... how did Nathan know about Will & Grace's relationship? She doesn't know him or anything about him, but he seems to know exactly hat's going on with them. What's the deal?
Jack's novel is called To Weep and to Willow: A Harlequeen Romance.
Set Decorator Doug Devine was uncredited as the other piano mover.
Eric comes out with a lot more stuff on him than what we see him evertually take off. That's because he removed stuff between takes so he could move.
When Will is talking to Grace in the kitchen, we hear the piano playing followed by applause. Listen carefully... the applause is tracked.
Christine Ebersole and Megan Mullally are reunited on a sitcom again in this episode. They both starred in the short-lived comedy Rachel Gunn, R.N.
When Megan takes air out of the balloon, it doesn't deflate. She didn't do anything.
Writer Ellen Idelson makes another cameo in the show as the usherette. She had previously provided the voice of Will's secretary (ironically enough named Ellen) when he had his basement office.
Sumner is Stan's nephew through his sister, which makes Karen a step-aunt.
Jacks food keeps vanishing quicker and quicker. You can tell it took them a few takes on the opening shot since they're eating food as they go.
