Episode Quotes
Val: You are looking at a totally new me.
Grace: Why? You finally working as a team with the people in your head?

Jack: I confess. When I first started gay group therapy, I just thought it was a really great place to meet guys. But now as I look around the room and I see you all looking back at me, I realize ... it's not such a great place to meet guys.

Episode Goofs
During the scene where Gavin and Will are back at Will's apartment, one of the snacks Will gets is cookies. He says they are chocolate chip, although those and the ones Jack was eating earlier, looked a lot like mini oreos.
