In the comedy club, a ventriloquist -- played by Jeff Dunham and his redneck dummy Bubba J -- is on stage, and it goes a little something like this:
Redneck Dummy: Hey Rick, what's the differ'nce between yer girlfriend and yer truck?
Ventriloquist: Ah don't know, Pumkin, what is the differ'nce?
Redneck Dummy: Yer truck don't yell at yoooo ever'time ya git gas!
Jack laughs hysterically and rises for a standing ovation. In the back, a mustachioed Kenneth clone smiles in approval. Commercials.
30 Rock. Frank asks Jenna what the whole gang is doing for Halloween. She says Sasha and The Michaels usually have a big party. Frank pretends that he, Toofer, and Lutz are having one, too, then suggest they combine the parties to have one big mega-party in the studio. Jenna is on board, so Frank throws up the horns at her. She continues to act down, all, "Yes! That gesture! I like people who... make do that!" Needless to say, the gays are displeased with this turn of events. Particularly Bitchy Sasha, the spokesgay. Jenna assures him it's all part of her insurance for when the new cast member arrives. Bitchy Sasha the Spokesgay tells her to read his face and throws out a facial expression that is equal parts shock and contempt. As if struck by fuschia lightning, Jenna understands.
Georgia hotel, next morning. Jack interrupts Lemon watching the local news to tell her they can leave because he's found their new cast member. She doesn't think a redneck ventriloquist will resonate, but Jack thinks his folksy, simple comedy will strike a chord with Middle America. He tells her to trust him, but she refuses to give the okay until she sees him.
30 Rock. Jimmy Fallon, still getting his bearings around the studios, finds Tracy in his dressing room clutching a pillow in fear for his life. Tracy establishes that Fallon is a celebrity and offers to show him a "shortcut" to Studio 6B. A moment later, Tracy leads Fallon through the dark passageways of the studio, making sure Fallon walks in front. Just as Tracy grabs a hammer to complete the unholy trinity, Kenneth crosses their path. Fallon scurries off, still alive. Blast it! Kenneth tells Tracy he doesn't need to worry because there is no Rule of Threes. Just then, Fallon comes surging back with an ax in hand. They declare truce, but Fallon vows to kill his first guest (a dog who plays soccer) if another celebrity doesn't die before the day's out. And then some fun is had with how crappy Fallon's show is.
