Will & Grace: Whatever Happened To Baby Gin?

Just as Will and Grace are settling into the idea of raising the baby together, Will's boyfriend Vince surprises him with an announcement that will ultimately lead Will to choose between his commitment to Grace and his relationship with Vince. Meanwhile, Karen shocks everyone when she announces that she has a sister, Gin, who was injured as a child during a game of Twister. Jack, on the other hand, is comforted by a man after a devastating discovery when his new show "The Badge" premieres.

Episode Notes
This is a 45-minute "super-sized" episode. This is the first time NBC has aired such an episode since the season 7 premier "FYI: I Hurt, Too".

Episode Quotes
Karen: Gin, please!
Virginia: Oh, stop begging.
Karen: No, I was ordering (To Smitty) Gin, please!

Episode Goofs
Why would Smitty just put the drink below the bar table? Wouldn't he just dump it into the sink or try to put it back in the bottle?

Wouldn't Kinko's have figured out on their own that based on the look of the poster that the word Vadge should have been Badge? And why would Karen take the posters when she knew they were horribly wrong?

Why would Will even consider moving to Harlem? He had problems with Grace being in Brooklyn clear back in Season 1. What would make Harlem any more appealing to him, especially when he has a home in midtown Manhatten already?

Cultural References
Episode Title: Whatever Happened To Baby Gin?

The episode title is in reference to the 1962 classic film "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?"

Will: Wow, this has been a fascinating episode of "NYPD Cribs."

A quick reference to the two shows "NYPD Blue" and "MTV Cribs."

Posters: The Vadge

Even mispelled, the posters for "The Badge" are made up as a parody look of the FX cop show "The Shield."

Karen: You spin the spinner and call your spot. Twister will tie you up in a knot.

Throughout the episode, Karen keeps making references to the old 1960's commercial for the kids game Twister.
