Lows in the Mid-Eighties (1) - S3-E8

Plot hole: In this episode during the flashback scenes, it is shown to us that Will comes out of the closet during his freshmen year of college during Thanksgiving Break, when they spend the weekend at Grace's Parents house. However in the season 1 episode "William, Tell" Grace claims that Will came out to her at senior year of college during Christmas Break. Quite a difference for such a memorable time.

Continuity mistake: When the guy at Will's party tells everyone the beer has gone, everybody leaves, and the guy puts his plastic cup on the handle sticking out from the keg. In the next shot the cup has suddenly gone, then reappears again in the next. (00:46:40)

Lows in the Mid-Eighties (1) - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: In the scene in which Will is sitting in Bobbie Adler's bathroom, talking to Jack on the telephone, the shots alternate between the bathroom and Jack's bedroom. At the beginning of their conversation, the digital clock in Jack's bedroom reads 12:07. For the next few shots, each time the audience is taken back to Jack's bedroom, the time on the clock has changed according to the actual time lapsing in the scene. However, in the middle of this sequence, the digital clock suddenly reads 12:24, where it had read 12:09 in the shot immediately preceding. Finally, in the very next shot in Jack's bedroom, the clock has gone back to "real time," with a reading of 12:10. The assumption is that the shot in the middle of this sequence had to be re-done, thus reflecting the time passage on the clock. (00:15:30 - 00:17:40)

Karen: Good Lord. I can't believe I'm at a public pool. Why doesn't somebody just pee directly on me?

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?
