Will & Grace: A Chorus Lie

A desperate Jack seeks to "in" his rival for the last spot in the Manhattan Gay Men's Chorus that will tour Europe by dangling a motivated Grace as date-bait before him to prove that he's actually straight. Meanwhile, a scheming Karen tries to pass off an unwitting Will as her lover and not her lawyer when she discovers that she's the object of pity for being single at her own Valentine's Day party.

Episode Notes
When shown in syndication, the scene where the three women are trying to proposition Will, is edited and sometimes it is completely cut.

Owen said he was in a long-term relationship with his high school boyfriend "Ben". Although he was lying, this may have been a reference to Damon's friend Ben Affleck. The two are known to be very close.

This episode was previously known as "Let's Hear It For The Boy"

Matt Damon originally talked with Sean Hayes on a celebrity softball team about coming onto the show for a guest appearance.

Episode Quotes
Jack: Oh, interesting. You gave me the straight-guy-double-pat-on-the-back-no-hip-contact hug.
Owen: Actually it was more the gay-guy-bend-at-the-waist-feel-your-delts-check-out-your-shoes hug.

Karen: Now, I don't want you to be intimidated by these rich society people remember, they're just like you, only infinitely better.
Will: Oh Karen, I'm no more intimidated here than you would be in a room full of people who were getting into heaven!

Episode Goofs
In "Yours, Mine, or Ours", Will and Grace use Jack's "gaydar" to help them figure out a man's sexual orientation. Apparently, Jack can figure out a person's preference within seconds of meeting them. Why didn't Jack's "gaydar" tell him that Matt Damon wasn't gay? Granted, he needed the photo for proof, but he should have known way before he saw him check out the girl.

Cultural References
Songs sung (not repeated) in this episode include modifyed version of "Let's Hear It For The Boy" by Deniece Williams, and Burt Bacharach's "Wishin' and Hopin'."
