Meanwhile, Jack smugly brings back the microwave to the lab in Stamford. The engineers mistake him for their lunch delivery man, but he barrels on with his pissing contest. He fires up their "so-called microwave," which reads "Start Time: 19:85." As the plot of Microwave Time Machine start rolling around in my head, Jack gives a puffed-up speech about how he has trumped them, only it's stilted periodically by the microwave's (a.k.a. Jack's) interjections. When Jack gets to the part about his legacy at GE, the microwaves dismisses it as "Over. Done." Jack tells the engineers the microwave has his voice. The engineer responds, "You all sound the same to us, Chuck Dungaree." Jack cuts off his speech and reveals the epiphany he and the microwave have had: It may just be time for him to hang up his hat, pass on the torch, and all those other clichés. He congratulates them on making the finest microwave he's ever seen and leaves. Just steps behind him, the delivery man (also played by Alec Baldwin) walks in. Asks the engineer in all earnestness, "Are we racist, or do those guys look a lot alike?"
That night, Jack walks into his office to find Pete rocking a Baja jacket, strumming his guitar, and inviting Jack to "jam out, have some brews, and talk about everything... and nothing." In his deflated state, a return to the college experience he never had is just what Jack needs. And apparently it's what Pete needs, too. He says he "only had about two weeks of real college before Paula got pregnant... twice." They start a half-cocked rendition of Jethro Tull's "Aqualung."
Downstairs, Chris calls Lemon out for giving away her grandfather's watch. He found out thanks to the inscription on the back: "Not Stolen Property of Adolf Lemon." He deems her desperate, and Jenna tells Lemon it's over. Everyone gives her the cold shoulder, though one guy screams, "You suck!" With that, Lemon resumes her God-given role as R.A. She shuts down their lottery on the grounds that the NBC handbook deems it gambling and promises fines for anyone throwing footballs in the studio. As the coup de grace, she threatens to put down the dog -- "with a smile" -- if she sees it again. Everyone moans as she mimes high-fiving a million angels.
Upstairs, she walks in on Jack and Pete in the middle of a seemingly pot-induced discussion. Jack tells her to "think fast!" so of course she gets walloped in the head with a beer can. She sets down a pizza she actually brought for herself and asks what's going on. They tell her about their college night. She says, "Oh yeah? Wanna see me shotgun this?" Before they can brace themselves for the horror, Jack and Pete sit with eyes transfixed as Lemon starts folding up the entire pizza. Pete shrieks, "Now she's unhinging her jaw!"
