The Definition of Marriage (1) - S8-E15

Revealing mistake: At the very start when Will enters the coffee shop, he walks over and asks the server for a coffee. The server picks up a mug, pretends to push the coffee machine button, holds the mug under the machine for about two seconds and hands it to Will. To top it off you clearly see nothing go into the mug. (00:00:05)

Grandpa Jack - S9-E4

Question: This is a question without a knowable answer. But I wonder if anyone has thoughts as to why we hear nothing of Elliot's mother? Jack and Elliot are estranged. Elliot's mother, Bonnie (originally played by Rosie O'Donnell), acknowledged to Jack that she is a lesbian in the original run of the series. So, when Elliot marries a conservative woman, moves to Texas, and makes plans to send his gay son to a gay conversion camp, where is Bonnie in all of this?
