Continuity mistake: In the poker scene at the beginning of the pilot we witness Will, Jack, Rob, and others playing cards. Shortly after Jack asks for "four cards please" watch the bottom left of the screen as a hand (presumably Will's) deals Jack a single card. In the next shot Will appears to have not dealt Jack any cards yet and when he does he gives Jack five cards, add that to the single card he gave in the previous shot and the Ace Jack kept from his original hand and we get a total of seven cards. Two more than Jack should have had if the hand was dealt correctly.
Continuity mistake: Following the argument between Will and Grace when she returns from City Hall, Karen tells Grace she "thinks it's time for a couple of blue bibbies." Watch closely as she removes the lid from the pill bottle, takes out some pills, and puts the lid back on. The scene shoots to Grace and we hear Karen shaking the closed bottle. When the scene shoots back to Karen we see that the pill bottle is open again and Karen closes it yet again.
Visible crew/equipment: In most of Season One at least (choosing a specific moment here), Will and Grace have a large ornamental silver ball in their living room, which always reflects the studio lights and the fact that there is no fourth wall to the apartment.

Continuity mistake: When Will is cleaning the tray, and in all following shots, from when he leaves the room, to when Karen walks over to Grace, to tell her to go get Campbell, there is a wine bottle which keeps jumping from the edge of the blue sink counter, to the edge of the counter which has the cooking gas-hobs on it.
Continuity mistake: After giving Will and Grace his scripts to read, Jack places his drinks bottle on the table and walks over to the door. When he reaches the door he suddenly has the drinks bottle in his hand, although he left it on the table across the room.
Continuity mistake: When Will is standing cleaning a tray, on the counter behind him there is a large circular wooden board, with a white tea-towel sitting on it. After he cleans the tray and walks off, the white tea-towel has moved off the wooden board, and is on the edge of the counter.
Continuity mistake: When Karen is lying on the table, her jacket is unbuttoned. And when Jack pushes her off the table and she gets back up, it's still unbuttoned. But as the shot cuts to her heading quickly over to the door, her jacket is now buttoned, but there was no time for her to do it.
Continuity mistake: When Grace is cleaning the table with the playing cards on it, all the cards are separated in piles on the table, but in the next shot they're all in one big messy pile. Grace holds a small piles of cards, and never touches the big messy pile, then in the next shot she picks somehow up all the remaining cards in one neat pile
Continuity mistake: Grace unpacks her Scrabble board game from her bag, and puts it on the table, and puts the bag on the floor. Then her friends tell her she is too competitive, so she goes to her bedroom. As she goes, you can see that the board game on the table has now been replaced by the big red bag.

Continuity mistake: When Val is folding her towels in the laundry room, she completely folds up a towel as Will enters the room. Then she is seen re-folding the same beige colored towel. Then, though she had picked up the beige one, she is seen setting a dark towel on the stack.
Continuity mistake: When the silly string fight happens, you see Nixon's can run out of string and he puts it back on the table when he takes off his mask. But when Will and Grace run back to grab the jaw-breaker, the can is suddenly full again as Will shoots Grace with it.
Continuity mistake: When Karen is sitting at her desk, she says "get out, already," and she has one bottle of nail varnish in her hand, and there are bottles on the desk in front of her. In the next shot she holds about four bottles in her hand, and now the bottles on the desk in front of her are differently positioned.
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.
Continuity mistake: After letting Campbell out, Grace pulls the white blind down the door, and it stops about halfway down the door, and gets stuck, and is still rolled at the bottom. In the very next shot, the white blind is now unrolled all the way down perfectly.
Continuity mistake: When Grace sits on the sofa (before Jack enters) her black bag is on the table in front of her. When Jack enters, wearing the alien costume, the bag is suddenly on the floor. Then when Jack gets up to leave the bag has moved itself back onto the table.
