In syndication there's a short scene cut during the opening of the episode. When Karen stops Lorraine and makes her give back the jewelry, Lorraine has hidden a necklace in her unmentionables. In the original airing, Karen says, 'And?' one more time, and yet another necklace falls out of the same place! This is why Karen calls Lorraine 'impressive'.

Goof: When Will is talking to Grace in the opening scene, he says that he was only on two dates with Barry. In the previous episode when he is pleading his case to Jack for approval he says "We've had fantastic dates all week", and these are not even counting the first date he went on with Barry that Karen set up or the next one when he let Barry down easy. So he has clearly had more than two dates with Barry.
