    Liz has found happiness with Floyd while Jack pursues a relationship of his own with Phoebe, an eccentric Christie's auctioneer. Tracy vies for Don Geiss's attention, hoping to turn his Jefferson movie idea into a reality. A good episode but this is where the season kind of goes down hill a bit. Jefferson the movie was the highlight of this episode that was the funniest thing here for sure and that makes this episode get a 9 out of 10 from me. PS I hate Jacks new girlfriend very annoying and is it that girl from Friends it looks and sounds like her.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (14)

    • Jack: (to Liz) I'm not a creative type like you, with your work sneakers and your left-handedness.

    • Don Geiss: As my old man always said, "If you try, you win." And he was a hell of a garbage man.

    • Frank: Hey, what's wrong with you?
      Liz: What?
      Frank: Your face. It's like you're... happy or something.

    • Liz: Look at your life, Jack. It's like this skybox: it's fancy, and it's empty, and it smells like crab cakes.

    • Floyd: On a personal note, sir, in my mind, the Foo Fighters' song "Best of You" is about your managerial skills.
      Jack: Lemon, I want to kiss your boyfriend on the mouth.
      Floyd: Chapter 12!

    • Liz: I hope this isn't too boring for you.
      Floyd: Are you kidding? Jack Donaghy is a legend. I've read his book, like, 20 times.
      Liz: Jack wrote a book?
      Floyd: Yeah. Jack Attack: The Art of Aggression in Business.

    • Tracy: Liz Lemon, you are my Alexander Hamilton.
      Liz: I don't know what that means.

    • Jack: I wish I were a horse: strong, free, my chestnut haunches glistening in the sun.
      Liz: Are you okay?

      Liz: Aww, Lutz, thats okay. I'm just glad you're here. (hugs him). You've got a face like a baby's bottom.

    • Jack: Would you like to sit down?
      Don: I can't. I took my grand-kid snorkling in St. Barths and got stung by a jellyfish. I got a welt on my ass the size of Red Delicious apple.
      Jack: I'm very sorry to hear that, sir.

    • Frank: I'm really happy that you've found someone to care about, because relationships are hard. So if you ever need someone to videotape you guys doing it or whatever, I'm...I can make room in my schedule.
      Liz: Thanks.

    • Floyd: Ugh, that movie was a complete waste of time.
      Liz: I thought it was moving... my bowels.

    • Tracy: Now, who's with me?

    • Liz and Floyd are trying to hide from Jack while he is calling on every phone they have. Then Liz says, "the call is coming from inside the house." This scene resembles the storyline of the horror movie When a Stranger Calls where a babysitter is receiving calls from a stranger and later finds out that they are coming from inside the house.
