Lady Lola: B- | Grade It Now!
Jackie Jormp-Jomp
In a hurry? Read the recaplet for a nutshell description!

We open on a bunch of Lester Molesters and Lemon. She's muddling through her GE-mandated sexual harassment rehab since her fruitless attempt to barter sex for money. She testily asks HR minion Jeffrey Weinerslav (pronounced exactly as you think) how she can speed up the process and get back to work. Instead of answering her, he riffs on her question to provide a for-example of what Sheinhardt Universal considers work-appropriate. Lemon rolls her eyes while some crazy redhead cackles away, scheming how she can become Mrs. Weinerslav, if you know what I mean.

Elsewhere, Jack enters Jenna's dressing room to talk to her about her Janis Joplin biopic. Jenna is overjoyed because she immediately thinks that the producers got Janis's life rights and can use her real name now, instead of Jeana Jimplin. Au contraire says Jack. They couldn't even get that name, so now the character will be called "Jackie Jormp-Jomp." Jack gets to the point -- focus group screenings of the film have been met with resounding disapproval. Something to do with having no rights to Janis Joplin's name or music? Not even Jackie's Obama-predicting "Woodstocks" duet with Jimi Hendrix could save it! Realizing the box office of Sing Dem Blues, White Girl: The Jackie Jormp-Jomp Story is at stake, Jack advises Jenna she needs to stir up some buzz for the movie. Realizing her Oscar nomination is at stake, Jenna agrees. She even offers to leak a sex tape. Jack says it'll be simpler than that. She can attend the Kids' Choice Awards to talk up the project. Jenna agrees to set aside her Cheetah Girl feud for that one day. Credits.

Down the hall, Kenneth catches Lemon sneaking into work. He sees the frenzy in her eyes and pulls out his rape whistle. She tries to talk him down, but the shrilling has already begun. Jack intervenes, telling Lemon that she's supposed to go home after her "pervert seminars." Lemon admits that she misses the craziness because being home is worse. Jack acknowledges a kindred spirit in Lemon. They are both Type A personalities that need stress to function. Lemon reluctantly agrees and makes her way back home.

In the writers' room, Frank and the others groan about the new company-enforced sexual harassment rules. They specifically take issue with a stipulation that all office relationships must be declared. Kenneth lets slip that he hasn't read the rules, thanks to a certain frisky Today Show co-anchor. And I'm not talkin' about Lauer and, surprisingly, not Kathie Lee, either. Frank spies Cerie and starts acting strange.
