Gypsies, Tramps & Weed (Season 3, Episode 7)

We have one word to sum up why this episode is amazing: CHER!

It’s Will’s birthday, and Grace and Jack bring him out for dinner to celebrate, reluctantly. Will’s birthday is always a disaster and this year is no different. There’s a surly waiter who’s ruining the night, and Grace ends up complaining and getting him fired. But before that, they exchange gifts, and Grace gives him a gift card for a psychic reading. Jack, on the other hand, gets him something that he would never ask for himself: a Cher doll.

Will gives the doll right back to Jack, which delights him because he clearly wanted it for himself in the first place. Jack becomes obsessed with the doll, since Cher is his idol (and honestly, same). He brings Cher everywhere, which drives Will and Grace crazy.

It’s the last straw when Jack makes them wait for a table for four, because he has Cher with him, and they storm out of the restaurant. Then someone comes up behind Jack and tells him it is weird that he’s carrying around the doll. That someone is none other than Cher herself, but Jack doesn’t fangirl over his idol — he thinks it’s a DRAG QUEEN! And to make it even better, he claims he can do a better Cher impression than her.

Cher can’t believe he’s serious and goes to leave, but then comes back to belt out a “if I could turn back tiiiiiime!” Jack still doesn’t believe her, and does an impression of his own. That’s when Cher gently slaps him across the face and tells him to “Snap out of it!”

Meanwhile, Will goes to this Psychic Sue to see what she has to say. He finds it ridiculous, especially when she says that he will be reunited with a “she” from his past. But when all of her predictions somehow come true, he rushes back over and asks to know about what’s in store for his love life.

He doesn’t like what he hears, that he’ll spend the rest of his life with someone whose name starts with J. Just “J.” Will is terrified by the thought of ending up with Jack but realizes maybe Sue just meant they’d be friends forever.
