  • Quotes (4)

    • Jenna: The gossip blogs are calling us James. It's a combination of Jenna and James.

    • Randy: I'm not going home... until I give my cool cousin a makeover! Liz: Is it gonna be fierce? Randy: It would be if it was 2006.

    • Randy: Liz, do you know how hard it was growing up gay in Methenberg, Pennsylvania? The local TV station edited Will & Grace down so much that it was just called Karen.

    • Liz: Hey, Tracy. Tracy: Finally! Over the break I forgot what floor I worked on. Liz: Six, Tracy. Tracy: Six! I knew it was a character from Blossom, but I couldn't find a Joey Russo button.

    Trivia (3)

    • Jack recites the first two lines of the poem "Initial" written by Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926), who is considered one of the most significant poets in the German language: "Aus unendlichen Sehnsüchten steigen / endliche Taten wie schwache Fontänen (...)" which translates to: "Out of infinite longings rise / finite deeds like weak fountains (...)"

    • The voice mail system at Nancy's home gives incorrect dates. It claims December 30th was a Thursday (it was actually a Wednesday) and that the next day was January 1st, skipping over the 31st.

    • Frank's trucker hat reads "I Tried".

    Allusions (1)

    • When Kenneth sees his own reflection in the mirror while he and Jack are at Nancy's home, he shrieks, " Albino Monk!" referring to the evil albino monk in Dan Brown's novel, The Da Vinci Code.
