Goofs

In the very first episode, when Jack comes to the house to stay over if you look you'll see that the wall next to Will's door is just a wall. It's the end of the hallway, but in subsequent episodes, it's just a partial wall, and there are other apartments behind it. See more »

Quotes

Harlin Polk: You're my lawyer. You tell me. What have I got to do to buy this company?
Will Truman: Well, first you've got to get something called a Hart-Scott-Rodino antitrust clearance and then we can negotiate standstills and lockups. Naturally, that's after we do due diligence.
Harlin Polk: What the hell is doo-doo diligence?
Will Truman: No, Harlin, after we do... due diligence.
Harlin Polk: Doesn't matter how slow you say it, Will. It's still doo-doo, isn't it? I just want to know what it means.

A Great Start for a Hilarious Show!!!

This is definitely a great starting point for Will & Grace. This episode is all about how Grace and Danny's relationship turns into a marriage proposal. They get into a fight, and Will tells Grace that she can move in with him for the time being. This complicates things for Jack, who was supposed to move in with Will before all of this happened. Danny ends up proposing to Grace,and she accepts. Will is reluctant to tell her how he really feels about their relationship, but he does and Grace storms out. We later learn that Grace and Danny do not get married, and Will and Grace make up. The last scene is them in a bar full of people as they toast each other as "husband and wife." The writers were not sure what they were going to do with Karen, so she was just there to provide comic relief and she tries to help Grace decide what to do about Danny's proposal. In this episode, Jack was hilarious, but he had not reached his full potential yet. For a pilot, this was a really great episode that I enjoyed watching.
