Plot Synopsis

Will decides to further his cooking skills by taking a class and invites Jack to join him in the kitchen. However, when Jack decides to include his new boyfriend Stuart, the gourmet attorney finds himself the sad single in a cooking class full of couples. Elsewhere, Karen's mother Lois returns to town, slightly unnerving her daughter and calling on Grace's thrifty design talents to help decorate her new apartment.

  • This episode is only 28-minutes. It was originally a super-sized episode, but was cut down to accommodate the preceding 32-minute "Friends" episode and so that "The Apprentice" could air at 9:00. Hopefully the full, uncut version will appear on the DVD release (but given Lions Gate's current track record, that is highly unlikely).
  • Edie Falco was originally asked to play Ann, but her schedule wouldn't allow it. (She was able to appear a month later as Deirdre in "East Side Story".)
  • This episode was a Yahoo! TV Daily Pick.
  • Suzanne Pleshette previously appeared as Karen's estranged mother in the 4th season episodes "Someone Old, Someplace New" and "Something Borrowed, Someone's Due".
  • A neighbor offers Lois $100,000 more than she paid for her newly decorated apartment. This plants the idea for Will and Grace going into a side business flipping apartments.
  • This episode included an end credit for production assistance by IKEA.
