EPISODE SYNOPSIS
Liz Lemon is lonely. Jack Donaghy offers to set Liz up on a blind date with "Thomas" - Liz is surprised when her date shows up and it's Gretchen Thomas - a woman! Rather than give up on what seems like it could be a great friendship, Liz keeps making plans with Gretchen despite the fact that she is not a lesbian. Meanwhile, Jack battles Kenneth in a series of poker games that test both of their wits.
