Will & Grace: Fanilow

Opting out of the annual Grace Adler Design Christmas party, ultimate "Fanilow" Will spends the night waiting in line for tickets to a special Barry Manilow concert -- only to have his weak bladder force him to make a quick pit stop and entrust Grace to hold his place. However, Will's snubbing of an overweight man in the bathroom line leaves his chances of meeting his idol in doubt. Meanwhile, a distraught Grace discovers her mother has cancelled on their annual Hanukkah shopping spree to have dinner with Jack, as Karen discovers the inspiring music of Manilow.
