After Will and Grace decide to have a baby together, obstacles pile up before them, including a missing specimen sample and bungled insemination efforts that have them teetering between artificial and natural means -- all leading to mis-conceptions. Meanwhile, when Jack considers giving up his show-business aspirations, until he gets some career advice from a "divine" entity -- his idol, Cher. Likewise, married Karen is sorely tempted by the romantic tickling of a rich and natty gentleman.
