Whose Mom is It Anyway? - S2-E4

Trivia: In the episode "Whose Mom Is It Anyway", Will, Grace, Grace's mother and a guy called Andy are having lunch in an Indian restaurant. Everything in the restaurant is classy, well laid out and expensive... except... the vases containing the flowers on each table, are actually old soup cans with the labels still attached.

One Job - S9-E15

Trivia: Will and Grace go visit Grace's father and sisters in honor of her late mother's birthday. Grace and her sisters sing a song that their mother sang to them when they were children. The song is All I Do is Dream of You, from Singin' in the Rain. The late Debbie Reynolds starred in the film Singin' in the Rain. Reynolds portrayed Grace's mother in earlier, original episodes of the series.

Steams Like Old Times - S8-E4

Trivia: If you look closely at the paper that Grace gives Clyde to use as a scoring card, it is actually a takeaway menu - for Happy Noodle. If you remember back to Series 6, in the episode "A Gay/December Romance", Happy Noodle is the plot point for the episode; in which Grace tries to boycott the restaurant but ends up becoming addicted to their food.

Hamster

Heart Like a Wheelchair - S6-E6

Trivia: Jack suggests that Karen could torture Lorraine, an Englishwoman, by "tying her down and forcing her to watch the American version of anything British." The episode aired on NBC shortly after NBC's "Coupling," based on a successful British show by the same title, was cancelled due to low ratings and critical condemnation. Not to worry, though; NBC is already adapting the BBC's "The Office."

Boardroom and a Parked Place - S5-E6

Trivia: Towards the end of the episode, Mr Stein (Gene Wilder) says "From the heart of my bottom." Then a moment later says "Wait a minute...strike that, reverse it", an homage to Willy Wonka, the character he played in the 1971 movie "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory."

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?
