EPISODE SYNOPSIS
After Jack pressures Liz and the writers to integrate GE products into the sketches Liz comes up with the idea to integrate Jack into a sketch. While Jack reveals that he's afraid of acting, Frank and Toofer trick Jenna into believing that she may get fired. All the while Liz wonders if Tracy is being lazy because he's illiterate.

FRANK TALK
WHAT DID FRANK'S HAT SAY?



EPISODE QUOTES
  • Liz: When you rehearse, I would like it if you read exactly what's on the cue cards. It's making everybody crazy.
    Tracy: Can't do it. I'm an improvisor. My acting style is like jazz. Jazz that you laugh at.
  • Jack: We're talking about product integration.
    Liz: We're not your shills.
    Jack: Oh, oh, I'm sorry. That's right [turning towards his secretary]. They're artists like James Joyce or Strinberg. Get real kids. You write skits mocking our presidents to fill time between car commercials.
  • Tracy: [Yelling down the hall] I can't read. I have to sign my name with an X.
  • Pete: Why would Tracy pretend to be illiterate?
    Liz: To get out of coming to work.
    Pete: So first you thought he was illiterate and now you think he's lazy? Geez, you are racist.
    Liz: No, Tracy took advantage of my white guilt. Which is to be used only for good. Like over-tipping and supporting Barack Obama.
  • Tracy: Did you hear this mess about sometimes "Y" being a vowel. What a world.
  • Liz: [to Tracy] You are unbelievable.
    Tracy: I'm unbelievable? What about your racist mess. Thinkin' a grown man is illiterate. That's the subtle racism of lowerd expectations. Bing Crosby said that.
    Liz: No, Bill Cosby said that.
    Tracy: That's racist!
