Back at 30 Rock, Kenneth comes upon Jack fiddling with the insides of the microwave. He tells Jack, "You know, my uncle was a tinkerer... until the FBI shot him." Jack explains his mission, but Kenneth immediately zeroes in that Jack may not be concerned for the company as much as for himself. "Sometimes a place can be so special to you that it feels like it couldn't possibly continue after you're gone," he tells him wisely, adding, "but after I left Kentucky Mountain Bible College, it still kept going... until it was shut down... 'cause of the wolves." Kenneth tells Jack he needs to let go. Jack questions Kenneth's educational focus (Television Studies with a minor in Bible Sexuality) and dismisses them as "not Psychiatry." He tells Kenneth he can help him by sticking his hand in the microwave. Unfortunately, it shocks the bejesus out of Kenneth, which was exactly what it was supposed to do.
Downstairs, Lemon has organized an ice cream social. She claims to be cool with the 73-minute break the crew has taken to eat their ice cream and further claims to be cool that someone brought a dog to work -- "and it definitely doesn't have any of its own waste on its feet!" Chris is smiling until he looks over at a crew guy named Tony who is at once a former alcoholic and lactose intolerant. In a desperate bid to keep her status, Lemon hands over her grandfather's watch, then starts a round of chanting, "Liz-ard! Liz-ard! Liz-ard!" The crew hesitantly joins in, then grows in passion until Lemon is doing that ridiculous dance where you grab your foot and jerk your knee back spastically. Ahhh, college!
Over in the writers' room, Operation: Prank Pete continues. "Jack" and Pete swap secrets about Pete's blankie and "Jack's" loneliness. "Jack" invites Pete to his office that night to jam on the guitar and drink beer. Pete hopefully says maybe they can discuss opportunities at Kabletown, and "Jack" says he'll make Pete's dreams come true if Pete wears a Mexican poncho. Pete does a happy dance as the writers high-five, save for an anxious-looking Lutz.
Upstairs, Jack has Kenneth out on his windy balcony in the freezing cold and orders him to simulate a rain storm by pouring a bucket of water on the microwave. Jack revels when the display malfunctions, reading, "Time Left: Pizza." Kenneth, who has now lapsed into hypothermia, wonders why anyone would use a microwave in a freezing rainstorm. Jack haughtily reminds Kenneth of the Inuits. Kenneth says forlornly, "Sir, you have to let go. At least that's what my Nana is telling me from that tunnel of light behind you." Jack scoffs that Kenneth's Nana is an idiot. And it's not the first time he's said as much.
