Back at 30 Rock, Grizz gives Dot Com an origami seagull as a token of good luck for his audition. They share an emotional hug.
Jack re-enters the building, looking downtrodden and sees Kenneth. He says he's realized what life is like on the bottom of the feeding chain. He was ostracized, ridiculed, and judged today. No one would even touch him. "But you will, won't you?" he asks Kenneth. He whispers, extra-creepy, "Make me feel human again. Embrace me, Kenneth." Jack extends his arms, but even Kenneth recoils with a disgusted look on his face and starts to make an excuse. Jack calls to him, "Et tu, Kenneth?" Kenneth shoots back in fluent Latin, "You speak Latin? Then you understand. The safety of the people is the highest law."
Back in the hallway, Pete tries to tinker the Hornberger System to suit the new conditions when Tracy and Jenna strut in with their rag tag bunch of candidates, which now includes a rabbi, as well. Tracy also hands over an expense form for driving a million miles in pursuit of these actors. Lemon grits her teeth.
Lemon pulls them into Tracy's dressing room to harangue Jenna for pulling Tracy into her scheme. Jenna insists that Jayden is bad news, but Lemon says she called all of his references: a commercial with Martin Scorsese, a play with Christopher Walken... "he's even studying the Meisner Technique with Sir Gilbert Gottfried." They all said they loved Jayden. Lemon says the Hornberger System will prevail. Jenna retorts, "Think again, Liz. The Hornberger System will devail! Is that the opposite of prevail?" Lemon gives up on yet another pointless conversation and leaves to oversee the auditions. Jenna decides to pull out her secret weapon. She plans to mess with Jayden's head by walking up to him and saying it's nice to meet him. Apparently, that freaks people out. She and Tracy bump fists.
Outside, Jack catches Lemon trying to kick out some of the hopefuls. Having become one with Joe the Plumber, Jack criticizes her for being dispassionate and robotic -- the exact qualities he instructed her to emulate that morning. Jack says the bedbugs have taken the blinders off of his eyes and declares that everyone should have a chance.
