Plot Synopsis

While a baleful Grace wallows in bed as she grieves over losing her boyfriend Nathan, an enterprising Will tries all his old tricks to spring her from her mattress and back into the real world's whirl. But when Jack and Karen arrive, Will fears that their bizarre efforts to help might actually drive Grace futher into her shell — not to mention therapy.

Guest Cast

  • None


  • Jhoni at Hoffman Travel was voiced by writer/producer Jhoni Marchinko.
  • The song played at the end of the episode is "17 Again" from the Eurythmics' Peace album (1999).
  • About the Bossa Nova music, Lindalu of the Will-n-Grace list says: the song is called "One Mint Julip" and was made famous by Ray Charles. The Ray Charles version is very close to what was heard on the episode, however, that version was recorded by W&G, not Mr. Charles. If you enjoy that type of music, I also recommend Combustible Edison for some fun and funky tunes. The song is also available on the "Swingers Too!" compilation inspired by the movie "Swingers."
