1st Season 1998
Eric's poker night is interrupted by the unexpected arrival of Grace, who has once again broken up with her boyfriend. She plans to spend the night to the displeasure of Eric's friend Jack, who was planning to move in temporarily. When Will talks Grace into finally leaving her boyfriend for good, she marches off to confront him, but returns to announce that she has accepted his marriage proposal.
"New Lease on Life"
Self-centred Jack is driving Will crazy, and apartment hunting is doing the same for Grace; but when she asks why she can't simply move in with Will, he convinces her that she needs to take care of herself for a change. Much to Will's surprise, she does just that, finding a terrific but affordable apartment in Brooklyn which is much too far away for Will's best friend to live. He asks Jack to move out and Grace to move in, but she insists that he was right and she needs to lead her own life for now. A few hours later, she concludes she has led her own life long enough and arrives with her bags.
Grace is completely frustrated by the miniscule size of the second bathroom, a problem Will promises to address. Jack drops by and mocks Will's compulsive control-freak nay saying to changes, hinting strongly that this is what drove his lover Michael away. When Will arrives home with his solution to Grace's problem (more shelving), she counters by suggesting that they rip out the dividing wall to combine the bathrooms into one giant deluxe designer dream. Controlling his instant no-way response Will tells a delighted Grace to go ahead. She does so, along the way trying to whip the distracted Karen into better shape as an assistant; but when Will gets home to discover that she has not only begun to demolish the wall but has added her own decorator touches throughout the apartment, he loses it.
"Between a Rock and Harlan's Place"
Will's latest bright idea: since his client Harlan has left his wife and moved to Manhattan, who better to redecorate his place than Grace? There's an obvious problem: can control-freak Will keep his nose out and agree to "just be the pimp?"
Jack decides to go for a singing career by mounting a one-man show ("Just Jack") at a gay nightclub's open mike night, with staging advice from a reluctantly intrigued Karen.
Jack isn't having much luck convincing either Will or Grace, both Halloween-phobes, to accompany him to the annual downtown "Gay High Holy Day" parade, so he takes Karen instead, who to her delight becomes an honorary drag queen for the night. Just as Will and Grace begin their spoilsport evening of lamb vindaloo and Ingmar Bergman video, Harlan appears with his two kids in tow (dressed as a bee and Richard Nixon), explaining he has been called away on business, and the reluctant pair set off trick or treating with the children.
Jack lucks out when, dressed as Starsky, he encounters another man dressed as Hutch.
Quote: "Don't eat too much candy, and don't put anything in your mouth that isn't wrapped!"
Karen is going on vacation, so Grace hires Jack as a temporary office replacement, but he immediately unsettles her by revealing that Will had an affair the previous summer with a man he referred to as his "client". Concerned that she doesn't know Will as well as she thought, Grace becomes obsessed with what else he may be keeping from her, especially when he goes out at 9:30 to meet with another "client". Unbeknownst to Grace, this is Karen, who is considering divorcing her rich husband and has hired Will to investigate the full extent of her spouse's corporate holdings.
"Where There's a Will There's No Way"
Guest star: Julian McMahon [ Guy ],
Concerned over her lack of dating drive, Grace reaches the horrifying conclusion that she is having much too good a time living with Will to want other men, and imposes a complete moratorium on further mutual fun. Meanwhile, Karen plays poker with Will and his buddies; and Will helps Jack deal with the fact that he is being audited by the IRS after not paying his taxes - ever.
"The Buying Game"
Grace has the opportunity to buy her studio space. Since savvy lawyer Will is a tough negotiator, she asks him to help her with the offer. Grace thinks the whole deal will be a piece of cake, so she's shocked at the tactics Will has to use to get the price down. Meanwhile, Jack decides to become a massage therapist and asks Karen to be his "guinea pig" for his training. Although reluctant at first, Karen discovers that Jack has a real knack with her back -- and wants him all to herself.
"The Big Vent"
Warming themselves over a heating vent, Will & Grace discover they can hear everything happening in the bedroom below, including an extra-martial affair that soon has them both hooked on a real-life unfolding soap opera. The distracted pair are too wrapped up in eavesdropping to read Jack's play which is being given a class reading.
"The Truth About Will & Dogs"
A party evening with two straight couples is spoiled by their obsessive conversations about their dogs (which we at first assume is about their children), and Will is even more upset when Grace comes home from an animal shelter with a dog of her (read: their) own. He orders her to get rid of the animal, comes face to face with it, and melts immediately. Then Grace must deal with the fact that Will has, just like their friends, become totally obsessed with the pet, to the point where he is oblivious to the advances of handsome gay men. After the pooch pees on Harlan's business papers at Will's office and destroys an expensive swath of fabric at Grace's office, she wants to send him off to the "Yuppy Puppy" dogminders, but Will can't bear the thought of strangers looking after him. Who do they know who has lots and lots of free time ... Jack?
"Will On Ice"
It's Will's birthday, and he has only two wishes: that the single grey chest hair he found would go away, and that Grace and Jack could get along for at least as long as it takes to have a quiet birthday dinner together. A tweezer takes care of the first, but the second gets complicated when Grace and Jack discover a shared passion for professional ice skating competitions, and Karen gets dinner reservations at a fabulous restaurant on condition that she tag along. When the foursome winds up rinkside at "Champions On Ice" and Will can't even get a box of popcorn, he suddenly decides that he is fed up trying to please other people on an evening supposedly devoted to him.
"My Fair Maidy"
Grace is in a panic about the annual design show competition, which she always loses, and as a result of her quest for creativity the apartment becomes a disaster area (Jack: "Did Grace explode?"). Will's solution: a maid in the form of tough-talking April, who is mightily impressed with the sketches Grace threw away and proves to be just the ego-boost she needs to get her creative juices flowing...
Meanwhile, Jack meets Alex, a cute young man, in a bookstore and tries to impress him by pretending to be a corporate lawyer, explaining Will as his incompetent assistant. But the scheme backfires when Alex confesses that he is looking for someone less assured and successful ... like maybe Jack's assistant?
"The Unsinkable Mommy Adler"
Guest star: Debbie Reynolds [ Bobbie Adler ],
Jack must help Karen deal with her suspicion that she is pregnant. Grace's visiting mom, Bobbi, a would-be star whose propensity for breaking out into show tunes and impressions dismays her daughter -- and delights Will, Jack and Karen - wreaks havoc by suggesting Will and Grace wed, despite their sexual differences. When Will winces at the fantasy of committing to anyone who needs to be the star of a relationship, Grace realises she's more of a chip off the old block than she imagined.
"Big Brother is Coming (1)"
Will's older brother is in town, but Will doesn't want to see him, and is furious when Grace invites him over during Jack's birthday party (during which Jack is horrified to discover that he is not 29 but 30). The brothers haven't spoken for five years, since Sam forced Will to give his honest opinion of his fianceé. Now Sam is divorcing her, but there's another problem: a strong mutual attraction between Sam and Grace.
"Big Brother is Coming (2)"
Will is aghast when he learns that Grace and Sam spent the night together, so Grace must use her wiles to reconcile the two stubborn men. Meanwhile, Karen tries to help Jack face the fact that he is now 30.
"Yours, Mine or Ours"
When a good-looking but sexually ambiguous new tenant moves in, both Will and Grace vie for his attentions until the competition grows so nasty it threatens their own relationship.
"Secrets & Lays"
The gang retreats to a cabin in Vermont for the weekend, where Grace rekindles romance with old flame Campbell and tries to hide the fling from Will, who's pining on the eve of his would-be anniversary. Meanwhile, Karen's culinary efforts go up in smoke, as does Jack's attempt to cheer Will by dragging him to a local gay pub.
Will uses his zany new neighbour Val for his plans while Grace compulsively works overtime; when she finally twigs that she is being replaced, the result is a free-for-all chick fight. Meanwhile, Jack is sentenced to pick up trash after slapping a meter maid.
"Will Works Out"
Jack's bogus gym membership has finally been cancelled, so a reluctant Will takes him as a guest to his own gym -- where he is too embarrassed to introduce Jack to his straight friends and clients.
Grace gets a coveted job decorating the house of a rich and powerful publicist, but there's a catch: he demands that she fix him up with a horrified Will.
When Rob and Ellen admit that they don't have fun playing games with Will and Grace because of Grace's competitive nature, Grace works to change her image. However, as Grace loses her competitive edge, Will's emerges. Meanwhile, after learning how to administer CPR from Jack, Karen reluctantly saves a workman's life.
"Object of My Rejection"
Karen persuades Jack to marry her maid Rosario so the woman can legally stay in the country, and the sham wedding has a strange effect on roommates Will and Grace -- who decide they shouldn't live together any more.
Over all this is a must see series and will be sure to get a laugh out of anyone!!!!!!!!
