* EpiphanyTherapy: In "Bullies," it takes a single therapy session to establish that Will's BullyHunter personality comes from standing up to his abusive father. He also discovers that his trouble sleeping is due to guilt over having Sloan lie on air, but this is instantly subverted: it's just late-night bacon snacking.
** To be frank, the psychiatrist is the son of Will's former psychiatrist, who left so many notes on Will that "they need their own filing cabinet", meaning that Will had a lot of sessions before this.

** Will is frequently likened to the title character of {{Don Quixote}} in ''Theatre/ManOfLaMancha'' for his optimism. Ironically, the show has Will "correct" [=MacKenzie=] that Don Quixote rides a donkey instead of a horse, but Don Quixote does ride a horse. It's his sidekick Sancho Panza who rides the donkey.
