Aired Thursday 8:00 PM Feb 24, 2011 on NBC



  • Trivia

    • Kenneth asks people to, "please follow me to Brian Williams' bathroom, which is also J. Fred Muggs' skull." Actually, when this episode aired J. Fred Muggs—who was The Today Show's mascot in the mid 1950s—was still alive, living with a caretaker in Florida.

    • Frank's trucker hat reads, "Code Breaker".

  • Quotes

    • Liz: I know it's hard. Society puts a lot of pressure on us to act a certain way, but TGS is a safe place, so you can drop the sexy baby act and lose the pigtails.
      Abby: But I like my pigtails; my uncle thinks they're sexy.

    • Abby: (to crew) Is it cold in here, or is it just that I'm not wearing any underwear?
      Jack: (to Liz) She should be careful around the crew. New York gives us a tax break for employing sex offenders. It's a terrible program.

    • Lutz: I shall be British. Chicks dig British guys. Sir Ian McKellan? That guy must be knee-deep in boob.

    • Jack: Female jealousy is an evolutionary fact, Lemon. If you try to breed it out of them, you end up with a lesbian with hip dysplasia.

    • Liz: This started as a show for women, starring women. At the very least, we should be elevating the way women are perceived in society. AUGH! My period! You're all fired! (falls to the floor)

  • Notes

    • Alec Baldwin (Jack Donaghy) and Chloe Moretz (Kaylie Hooper) would appear together later in 2011 in the theatrical release, Hick.

    • Though credited, Tracy Morgan does not appear in this episode due to his recovery time from a December 2010 kidney transplant.

  • Allusions

    • Jack asks, "Whachu talkin' 'bout, Kaylie?"
      mimicking Arnold's catch-phrase, "Whachu talkin' 'bout, Willis?" from the TV show, Diff'rent Strokes.
