In this episode, Jack makes reference to Dawson's Creek and ironically enough, in the Series Finale of Dawson's Creek which aired the night before this episode, there was a mention of the show Will and Grace by a character on the show named Jack
(Grace walks out wearing a black bathing suit with a black kimono and a floppy sun hat.)
Will: What are you wearing? Why aren't you dressed?
Grace: What? We're on a boat.
Will: We're scattering the ashes of a dead man, and you're dressed for Salma Hayek's pool party.
Grace: I don't think Karen really cares what I'm wearing. It's the fact that I'm here that counts.
Karen: (Walks on deck) Well, if everybody's ready, we should get started. I wouldn't want Grace to be late to the MTV beach house.
Grace: They buried him in a popcorn can? Isn't that a little unseemly?
Karen: Not as unseemly as the cremation. It took four days and used so much power that all of Bergan County lost their air conditioning.
