EPISODE SYNOPSIS
Everyone is back from Christmas break and they share their New Year's stories in the elevator - Jack and his guests accidentally got high off of some really old wine, Jenna was asked by James Franco's manager to start up a fake relationship with him, Tracy thinks he impregnated his wife and Liz outed her young cousin at their family's get together. Jack realizes later that he drunk dialed Nancy Donovan, whom he hasn't heard from since their kiss before Christmas. He enlists the help of Kenneth (after Kenneth beats Johnathan in a test of who is lither) to go down to Nancy's home and delete the message (the family is on vacation). Once they get there, Jack sees evidence that her husband may have moved out. They listen to the message and Jack waxes poetically about their days in German class in high school when they were "Klaus" and "Greta." He considers leaving the message there, but Kenneth deletes it telling him that it's not his business to interfere in the marriage. Back in New York, Kenneth realizes that Nancy's telephone voicemail code spells "Klaus" and that she's been thinking about him all of these years. Cerie and Kenneth help Jack leave a casual message on Nancy's machine.

Liz goes with Jenna to a meeting with James Franco and his manager to nail down the details for their fake relationship. James is in love with a Japanese body pillow and wants to dispel rumors in the tabloids of his tendencies. Liz advises Jenna later that she shouldn't be settling for this and she deserves something real. Later on one of their fake dates James kisses Jenna, but only because he thought he spotted a papparazzo. Jenna thought it was real at first, and then realizes that Liz was right. She wants to be happy. She tells James and encourages him to be happy with Keiko, his body pillow.

Tracy is ecstatic about his wife being pregnant and feels certain it's a girl. His enthusiasm wanes when he meets a hot woman in the hallway who shares a name with his future child. He realizes that all women are somebody's daughter and is worried about the future. He decides to add a woman to the posse.

Liz's gay cousin Randy arrives in New York because his parents are upset about the outing. He wants to experience all that New York has to offer, but Liz tries to shelter him. He ends up tricking her and locking her in a closet so he can go out. The next day he tells her that he's not going back home until she goes out and has fun. He gives her a makeover and they run into James Franco at a club. Liz ends up having a three way with James and Keiko and the morning after Randy leaves.
