Between a Rock and a Harlin's Place
6 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was another really good episode of Will & Grace. We start out with Will agreeing to let Grace decorate Harlin's apartment. Grace does not want to, because she knows that Will will meddle in her work. She lays down some ground rules and agrees to decorate his apartment. Also during this episode, Jack is trying out his new one-man show "Just Jack." Karen thinks that he needs a little help with the way that he does the show so she gives him a few tips about how to make it better. The best scene of the whole show was when Karen showed Jack how to samba. They have such great chemistry together, and the scene was hilarious! Grace finishes decorating Harlin's apartment and Will thinks it is insulting to him the way that she has decorated it. Harlin ends up firing Grace and thinks that Will had something to do with it. At the premiere of "Just Jack," Harlin tells Will that he fired Grace because of all of the fighting they do. Jack thinks that he is a big star with just a room full of people. After the show, Will and Grace "sign" a contract saying that he will no longer be a "buttinski", and they make up.
