Yours, Mine or Ours is the 16th episode of the first season.

Will and Grace find out they are on a date with the same guy. After another accident, Karen fires her driver.


While riding the elevator, Grace meets Peter, who is new in town and is moving into the building. They get acquainted and he invites her to a housewarming dinner. Later that day, Will meets Peter and he invites him, as well. Both Will and Grace think they are up for a romantic date but instead end up in the same apartment competing for Peter's attention and looking for clues as to whether Peter is gay or straight.

When they finally ask Peter which one of them he is dating, he expresses that they are just friends and is not interested in either of them.
