Recap

Liz is upset that Tracy won’t act professional and calls him out on it.

Tracy is hurt that everyone treats him like a child and readjusts his clocks to try and trick him into showing up for work.

The next day Tracy shows up in full on Cosby sweater garb, glasses, and a professional demeanor.

He knows all of his lines, is on time, and works perfectly for the day.

Of course he has other ideas as he professes that everyone should be treated equally, no matter what.

It all starts with Liz Lemon having to change a water bottle, which has nothing to do with equality.

Liz and Tracy continue their battle for a few more days: Liz enjoying the sweet aroma of unbridled man farts, and Tracy forced to work late while Liz and the boys go to a strip club.

The two decide they can’t handle the changes and want to go back to the old ways.

Meanwhile, Colleen Donaghy, Jack’s mom, is in town.

Despite how difficult she is Jack is being nicer than usual because it’s the 35th anniversary of when his father walked out on the family.

When Jack goes to his mother’s hotel to pick her up for dinner he discovers Paul, a Floridian who can drive at night and makes his own soda.

Jack is convinced the guy is a scam artist and employs his private eye to find out what’s up.

Buscemi comes back to report Paul is a boy scout, and that he’s been married for 35 years. Jack goes to confront Paul about his indiscretions by using a slightly modified version of the speech he wished he had given his father long ago.

Colleen knew of Paul’s marriage and shrugs it off.

She then realizes that Jack is upset about the abrupt departure of Jimmy Donaghy 35 years ago. She’d forgotten about it and told Jack to, too.

Later, Jack is watching "Some Like It Hot," which he explains to Liz is a movie his father took his mother to see.

Liz makes a comment about wanting to be a writer when the movie came out in 1959 because audiences would have been so gullible.

Colleen’s previous comment becomes clear: If Jimmy Donaghy was gone from 1957 until 1959, and Jack was conceived in 1958 then Jimmy Donaghy is not Jack’s father.

Jenna was also in this episode. It involved a gibbon that humped her face. Enough said.

Bridget Super - I've done Weddings for years. And I agree, cue the Disney music As my husband was lanuihgg, I set the DVR(yes Greg we are Direct Tv Customers) I still got up fashionably at 5:30 to watch how things were going.What a privlege it is to be invited to witness events like this, be it royal,or our customers personal love story. It's so exciting to see people truly in lovemaking a commitment like this.Even though technically it's work for us it's sooo much more! It's fun to see what they chose to include in the ceremony,surprised that her Maid of Honor wasn't with her before the ceremony, and sympathetic to the poor soul who lost camera feed a few times through the ceremony. Yikes! Glad to be in the audience. As far as hats, did you notice the girl with the camera that ducked into the front seat of car to catch a shot of her and her father as they first got into the car. Even she had a feathery spray in her hair. How cool to be the one to share images like that with the world!Overall,Dan asked me if I had the option to get up that early to watch it again and the answer would be YES!ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!

1959. Boy, it would've been fun to write back then. You could get away with crazy plot twists, because audiences were so much less sophisticated.

Have you ever been to Florida? It's a criminal population. It's America's Australia.
