EPISODE SYNOPSIS
Jack and Kenneth work together when Jack discovers that another NBC executive is after his job. Meanwhile, Pete and Liz adjust to life as roommates, and Tracy learns he's a descendant of Thomas Jefferson.

Frank
FRANK TALK
WHAT DID FRANK'S HAT SAY?
  • Mash Potatos
  • Beef Ravioli
  • Atomic Super Kick


EPISODE QUOTES
  • Kenneth: Oh, it's not really a team. It's just a bunch of guys that like doing gymnastics!
  • Tracy: Dr. Spaceman, when they check my DNA, will it tell me what diseases I might get or help me to remember my ATM pin code?
Dr. Spacemen: Absolutely. Science is whatever we want it to be.

  • Liz: I have been sexually rejected by not one, but two guys who later went to clown college. I get super nervous whenever I hear a vacuum cleaner because when I was a kid, my mom used to turn on the vacuum to drown out the sound of her and my dad fighting. Which is why I rarely vacuum my apartment...like, never. I have had three donuts so far today. Once in college, I pooped my pants a little bit at a Country Steaks all-you-can-eat buffet, and I didn't leave until I finished my second plate of shrimp. A couple of months ago I went on a date with my cousin. Wow, I am a mess. There is an 80% chance in the next election that I will tell all my friends I am voting for Barack Obama, but I will secretly vote for John McCain. Here's one: when I was a kid I used to put on my fanciest nightgown, and then I would mix orange soda and cream soda in a champagne glass and I would sit in the dark and watch The Love Boat. Consequently, I have some weird sexual fantasy stuff about Gopher from The Love Boat. And I lied, I have had five donuts today. So, that's my deal, now we're even.
  • Jack: Banks is no slouch. He pioneered the concept of ten second Internet sitcoms.
  • Jack: Good God, Devon is gay. He's even more powerful than I thought.
  • Jack: don't know what happened in your life that caused you to develop a sense of humor as a coping mechanism. Maybe it was some sort of brace or corrective boot you wore during childhood.

BEST SCENES AND MOMENTS
  • Devon comes on to the ridiculously naive Kenneth.
  • Liz accidentally leads Floyd to believe she's a recovering alcoholic. She lets him believe it when he reveals that he has trust issues.
  • Twofer finds out he's related to a black Confederate officer, then later finds out he was related to someone who aided and abetted John Wilkes Booth.
  • Kenneth uses his sexuality (just like Sidney Bristow) to postpone Devon.
  • Fireworks, in Midtown, on a day that's not the 4th of July. Not the best idea. That's gonna scare a lot of people.

EPISODE TRIVIA
  • In the 10-second Internet sitcom clip produced by Will Arnett's character, the credits that flash by list Arnett as a guest star.
  • The footage of fireworks going off around the GE Building was recycled from NBC's 75th anniversary celebration.
  • In Tracy Jordan's dream Thomas Jefferson says, "America which I invented". This alludes to Al Gore who wrote a book saying he invented the internet.
