** Beverly Leslie's love of men is clear to see in spite of his lame attempts to deny it. When he finally confesses in Season 9, Karen and the studio audience barely react.
-->'''Karen:''' Does your "''business associate''" know?\\
'''Beverly:''' He suspects...
** The married lead counselors of Camp Straighten Arrow, a gay conversion camp, are clearly a ButchLesbian and CampGay who are desperately trying to deny their sexualities. Enforced by the fact that they're portrayed by the out and proud Creator/JaneLynch and Creator/AndrewRannells.

** Many of the show's guest stars are mentioned on the show, but they didn't appear as themselves, such as Madonna, Britney Spears, Rosie O'Donnell, and Matt Damon.
** In season 5, When Jack sees Lorraine in Stan's funeral, he says, "We hate her even more than the know-it-all daughter on the Series/GilmoreGirls." Two of Grace's one-time romantic interests (Campbell and John Gregorio) were on that show as Lorelai Gilmore (the know-it-all daughter's mother)'s main romantic interests, Christopher and Luke.

* GagBoobs: "Das Boob". an entire episode built around this trope and arguably one of the best of the entire series. Due to error in a newspaper article about Grace appears in the accompanying photograph to have a huge rack. She then hears from a high school crush who wants to see her. The gang are convinced the illusion of her Gi-normous breasts are responsible. Karen convinces her to obtain the "waterbra" which later in the episode fails miserably and hilariously. While on Series/InsideTheActorsStudio Creator/DebraMessing stated that this episode was her personal favorite.

** Arguably Will. In the first and even the second seasons, he was a fairly StraightGay except for his utter lack of interest in sports. As the series continued he mentioned more and more 'girly' things he had done as a kid: needlepointing, baking cookies, watching ''Little House on the Prairie'' with his mother, spending two hours getting his hair exactly right before the family trip to ''The Nutcracker'', pretending to be Eartha Kitt, being obsessed with Doris Day, singing love songs at school talent shows, putting on little musical plays at home, wearing his mother's clothes and, when he was ten, having them tailored! Though he did date girls in adolescence, with all this it seems odd for his parents to have been shocked when he came out at nineteen.
