Liz Lemon: I'm not making this decision based on who's funnier or whom I like best, so Toofer, you're in charge. Toofer: Thank you. In the words of Tennyson... Liz Lemon: Sorry, you're not in charge. Liz Lemon: Frank, you're in charge. Frank Rossitano: Finally, someone cool is in charge. My first order is to disable the firewall. Gentlemen, we can surf for porn again! Tracy Jordan: I like to thank my creative team for coming in such short notice. Also, sorry I'm four hours late. Jenna Maroney: You've created two Lizzes, writer Liz and performer Liz. Performers need to be coddled, to be protected from the real world. Jack Donaghy: I get it. I must treat her like the New York Times treats its readers. Pete Hornberger: Boy, if this thing works it could be my ticket out. This job is starting to get to me. Lately I've been shoplifting just to feel in control. Because no one knows I took the candy bar. No one but Peter. Yakov: I get it. Elegance. That's why people come to Yakov's Nubian Bling Explosion.

Shooting/Filming Locations

  1. Silvercup Studios - 4222 22nd Street, Long Island City, Queens, New York City, New York, USA


- According to a February 2008 "Vanity Fair" piece by Tim Long, former _"Miami Vice" (1984)_ (qv) actor 'Philip Michael Thomas' (qv) really did wear a necklace with the letters EGOT on it that symbolized his aspiration to win an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar, and a Tony.

- This is the first episode in which Frank can be seen without wearing one of his trademark hats.

- First physical appearance of fantasy character Astronaut Mike Dexter, though Liz has mentioned his name several times before.

- In this episode the cast is filmed on a high definition camera. It shows up the flaws in Liz and Pete's appearance, but portrays Jack as youthful and handsome. The image of a younger 'Alec Baldwin' (qv) is actually taken from his film _The Hunt for Red October (1990)_ (qv) - if you look closely you can see that the dark suit high-definition Jack is wearing is actually a naval officer's uniform with the rank badges and insignia digitally removed. Jack's office is also decorated with various pictures and models of naval ships which may also be a subtle reference.
