Gay lawyer Will Truman (Eric McCormack) and straight interior designer Grace Adler (Debra Messing) are best friends living in New York City. Grace is engaged to a real jerk until the relationship falls apart and she moves in with Will. It's supposed to be temporary, until Grace finds her own place, but more and more it looks like a permanent arrangement. Grace's secretary and assistant is fun-loving wealthy socialite Karen Walker (Megan Mullally); Jack McFarland (Sean Hayes) is Will's flamboyant gay friend.

Did You Know?
All of the four principal cast won an Emmy in their respective categories over the course of the show's initial run, with Megan Mullally
taking home two for her portrayal of Karen Walker. However, only two years saw all of the cast nominated at the same time, 2000 and 2001. The show managed at least one win in any category, with the exception of two years, The 51st Annual Primetime Emmy Awards
(1999), of which it was only nominated in one category, the direction of the pilot, and The 56th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards
(2004), in which it was conversely nominated for nine. In only one of its six nominations, did it ever take home the Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series. See more
In the earlier series, the deadlock on Grace's office door is backwards. The door opens inwards yet the part of the lock where the key is required is on the inside of the office and the latch that can be opened by hand is on the outside - rendering the lock useless. This is corrected in later seasons. See more

No, no, he's gonna - he's gonna try to get me to another one of his basketball games. It's just not my thing. Make up an excuse.
[into the phone
Um, Elliot... Yeah, I've got some bad news. Jack and I were figure-skating and he plunged through the ice. Haven't heard from him since. Could I take a message? Okay. You're trying out for the cheerleading squad?

Brr, I'm back!
