I noticed some line changes between the east coast and the west coast:
- On the east coast, Will says that when he talked to Stan, he was eating 18 chalupas, or something like that, but on the west coast, he was drinking a meatball shake.
- On the east coast, Will says that he thought Karen had a tail, but on the west coast he says that he's seen her catch flies with her tongue.
- On the east coast, Will says that bringing ice cream sandwiches to a gay man is insulting, while on the west coast he suggested ice cream sandwich scented candles instead.
- On the east coast, Grace said something about her hair getting her out of something in school, while on the west coast she skipped it. She and Jack had trouble not laughing through that whole scene on both coasts.
- Just before the "majorly assassinated" scene, on the east coast, Malcolm pulls Will into the hall, but on the west coast, they start in the hall. I think maybe they were running late.
