Will & Grace

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.

Plot hole: In earlier episodes, the hallway outside of Will's apartment does not match up with the layout of his apartment. Also, the board outside, besides the lift shows inconsistencies in the layout of the whole building.

Plot hole: The apartment block where Will lives supposedly has the same layout for each floor of the building. Yet in "Yours, Mine or Ours" the room 12D is seen as located right in front of the elevator, the same location as Will's apartment door - however Will's apartment is always seen as 9C.

Plot hole: In "Alley Cats" when they are bowling and Grace is losing, she says she's fine with it and she knows how it feels to be her middle sister, then Will reminds her that she's actually, "The baby of the family looking for Daddy's approval." However, in all later episodes, Grace is portrayed as the miidle child with a younger sister, Joyce and an older one called Janice. This mistake is made in a few other places through the show, where Grace either refers to how old she is (youngest, middle child etc) incorrectly.

The Truth About Will & Dogs - S1-E10

Plot hole: In this episode, Will says that he "never saw himself as a dog person." But in a later episode, the one where he sees the psychic, he talks about how he had a dog when he was little and how much he loved the dog.

Alley Cats - S1-E21

Plot hole: In the bowling alley scene, Ellen states that Grace would need to knock down 27 pins in order to tie. Will and Grace then have a conversation, and Grace gets a strike with her next ball. They then start gloating that they have beaten Rob and Ellen, but the scores don't add up, and they couldn't go into the lead on that round.

Fred Astaire & Ginger Chicken - S6-E20

Plot hole: Jack spends part of this episode clumsily teaching Karen basic steps of the fox trot for her wedding dance with Finster. However, in season 4, episode 16 ("A Chorus Lie") It is established that Karen and her husband Stan have, for years, performed an annual spotlight dance at their Valentine's party on Shelter Island. Later, she and Will are seen beginning a rather elegant fox trot to "Someone to Watch Over Me," complete with spins and a dip.

Karen: Gosh, I don't think that I've ever been stressed out. Why would I be? I've got practically no responsibilities, my job's a breeze and I've got a killer rack! Good morning!

Election - S2-E2

Fanilow - S6-E10

Question: Will and the others are in line to buy Barry Manilow tickets when the box office opens at 6:00 a.m. the next morning (it is established that the episode takes place before midnight) and at one point Rudy states that the show is "tomorrow night." My question: is it common in New York for a fairly popular performer to sell tickets only on the day of the show? I live in Southern California and I can't think of a single time I've heard of a concert headliner selling tickets less than a month before the show.

JustJudy

Chosen answer: I'm not from New York so I can't speak for them, but in Chicago it has happened before. not very often though but I do recall it happening. I have also seen no tickets sold prior to the show at all, it was just first come first served the night of the show. That is very uncommon though.
