Meanwhile, Tracy makes the morning show rounds, and it goes about as poorly as anything he puts his mind to. Only this time, his failure is viewed as success. For instance, when he tells Rachael Ray to "shut [her] mouth, back that ass up and make [him] a sandwich," she applauds him for staying in character. He reveals to Regis, Kelly and all the ugly white ladies in the audience that he never went to Africa, only to a warehouse in Queens where he watched vintage pornography. Kelly commends his honesty. And Matt Lauer calls him brave for walking away from fame. Tracy gets frustrated and tosses a chair. Matt deems him a true artist, who "feels things we don't."
30 Rock. The staffers are all out on the plaza, and Lemon is unimpressed with the writers' suggestions for the night's show. Lemon tells them to throw everything out and start over. Lutz says it's hard to concentrate because it's so nice working outside. At which point a drunken homeless man promptly throws up on him. Lemon gets a phone call from Tracy, who tells her their plan was an epic fail. Lemon tells him to get back, and they'll figure something out. He retorts, "Eff you, L.L. ...spells 'FULL,' because you're full of B.S., Liz Lemon!" Lemon insists there's time, urging that, if the media won't let him embarrass himself, to "be like Michael McDonald and take it to the streets." If the public hates him, the media will follow, then he'll get his old life back. Tracy says she better be right because he can't take much more. What's more, Bono may have snuck into his limo.
After Lemon hangs up, Jenna runs over to ask if she'd be a good mother. Lemon does a spit take, then marvels, "No! And I wasn't even drinking anything." Jenna says she's at a point in her life where she has a strong desire to nurture -- her career. She thinks pregnancy would be great PR. With TGS circling the drain, Jenna says having a child would be a great excuse for why she's about to stop working. Lemon tells her to think seriously, because getting pregnant will mean she'll have a child. "I know," says Jenna, "who'll grow up to be a little gay fancy man!" Still, Lemon doesn't think Jenna will be able to find a man to "ride that crazy train." But Jenna already has someone in mind -- Kenneth. Jenna walks off as Lemon puts the kibosh on the homeless guy's idea to do a sketch about how the Empire State Building is controlling us through electricity.
