YOU GRADE IT
Jack Gets In The Game

And now, on to the quotes and other comedy highlights ...

Second-best visual joke that calls back to last season:
Blerg office furniture. You will all recall that "Blerg" is a favorite phony curse word of Liz's.

Best visual joke that calls back to last season:
Kenneth getting a soda from the drinks machine, all while blithely unaware of Devin smoldering lustfully behind a window right next to the machine.

Ten bucks says "pillowy abyss" makes it into either a Garnet Hill catalog, or a speech in the House of Lords:
Jack: Have you read Don Geiss's interview in this month's issue of Yachting Illustrated?
Liz: Uh, no. I subscribe to Giant Boats
Jack: (reading): "The ocean, says Geiss, like business, with a pillowy abyss of a lover's bosom, seems infinite, but all things must end."
Liz: Pillowy abyss?
Jack: Ignore that part. "All things must end." Geiss is sending signals about retirement, about succession.
Liz: By talking about sex in a sailing magazine?
Jack: That's exactly how Margaret Thatcher did it.

They don't call it the freshmen fifteen for nothing
Liz: [counseling Jenna that she's fine at the weight she's at] Don't let people make you crazy about this. You are just as beautiful and talented as you ever were.
Jack: No. No, no, no. You are fat. Go see Dr. Spaceman right now and get this taken care of.
Liz: How come men can be heavy and be respected, like James Gandolfini or Fat Albert. It's a double standard and America needs to get over its body image madness.
Jack: Oh, come on. What are we, back in college, freshman year? Let's go to the common room and talk about apartheid.
Liz: Oh, okay. Yeah. I'm sorry I care about making the world a better place.
Jack: You should be. It's a complete waste of time.

And if Practicology doesn't work, you can always get the Scarlet Witch to alter reality for you
Devin: Are you familiar with the Church of Practicology?
Jack: You mean the cult that was invented by Stan Lee?
Devin: I mean the religion founded by the alien king living inside Stan Lee. It is my faith in Practicology that has helped me uncover my true, straight self.
[Cut to Devin holding a glowing geode, with electrodes attached to his forehead]
It's definitely working! I can feel the gay draining right out of me. By the eye of Zolnak, right, guys?
