Downstairs, Pete hands out Kenneth's paycheck. Lemon approaches, so he hands over her paycheck, too. They look each other conspiratorially and act all cagey towards Kenneth before scampering off to plan that evening's scouting trip. Frank walks by and nearly finds them out, but luckily they're really good liars. By which I mean they just laugh loudly and scare him off.
Tracy's in his dressing room ranting at Grizz about how he and Dot-Com have disconnected Tracy from everyday folks. He's interrupted when Dot-Com brings in a custodian, who literally causes Tracy to shriek out, "Eep!" and recoil in horror. Dot-Com introduces Raleigh, a maintenance man from Brooklyn who works in the building. Tracy immediately connects with Raleigh because his "dear friend Moby" just opened a tea spot in Park Slope. Unfortunately, Raleigh doesn't know him. So Tracy moves on to a more general topic: Have you ever lost a remote. It seems to go well, until Tracy and Raleigh realize their respective remote controls have very different functions. (Hint: Tracy's isn't for a TV. See below.) So much for Tracy reconnecting with his roots. Raleigh makes a swift exit, and Tracy returns to his rant. He storms out -- after getting Grizz and Dot-Com to point him towards the elevator he's not afraid of.
Out in the hallway, Kenneth discovers he's been given Jack's paycheck instead of his own. He marvels at all the zeroes, then folds out an extension on the paycheck and squeaks in disbelief (maybe agony).
Lemon runs into Pete in the writers' room, and they act all kinds of weird and suspicious in an effort not to let the writers catch on that they're heading out together that night. Yeah, awesome liars!
The next morning, Kenneth acts as a formal spokesperson for the Pages when he approaches Jack to get their overtime back. He says he saw Jack's paycheck and thinks "all those zeroes are un-American." Jack counters that those bonuses are absolutely American because he is more skilled and, thus, more valuable and, thus, deserves a bonus. Kenneth is shocked that that check was merely a bonus, since Jack said there was no extra money to be splashed around. ("And bonus means extra -- I know that from game shows!") Jack gets down to the nitty-gritty, asking what Kenneth needs to move on. Since Jack made a liar of Kenneth, Kenneth wants Jack to sign his name to a piece of paper that says, "I'm a big, ol' liar!" Jack says no dice, so Kenneth decides to enact a Page strike. He tries to make a dramatic exit via the elevator, but it's totally full-up (including a terrified Tracy), so he waits.
