A Great Start for a Hilarious Show!!!
5 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
