Tracy finds Jack to tell him that he's down for that whole Republican Party thing. They share an embrace. I can't imagine this is any different than when Lieberman did it. Jack wants to shoot commercials right away for the McCain fundraiser.
Outside in the 30 Rock plaza Duffy poses for pictures with an adoring fan base while Lemon suggests not holding up two thumbs for every picture. "It's my thing dummy." Duffy is feeling his moment of glory. Everything is going his way, not unlike for Pete last week. Caught in the moment, Duffy gets down on one knee to propose to Lemon in front of a crowd of fans. "Elizabeth Sarah Lemon..." "That's not my middle-name," corrects Liz with much chagrin. "Will you marry me?" he asks. Instead of holding that bag of junk food Lemon's eating a banana. She gets a flash of her holding a lit match that burns out, leaving her all alone in a snow drift. She closes her eyes to drift away but is awakened by Duffy's familiar term of endearment "Wake up dummy. Hey space cadet, down here. You gonna marry me or what?" Absolutely not.
Tracy shoots his commercial for the Republican Party, imploring all Blackmericans to become Republican but as he reads his lines the cue card guy, who is black, doesn't look impressed, and neither does Dotcom or the black guy leaning on teleprompter next to Dotcom. Tracy confers with Jack. He thinks it's a lost cause. Blackmericans are going to always vote Democrat. "Unless ..." says Jack with one finger in the air. CUT TO: Tracy's new commercial where Tracy tells Blackmericans not to vote ... at all. "The amount of time it takes for you to vote. You can play three games of pool. Three! Now that's fresh." Jack turns off the commercial in his office and Tracy leaves with a screwdriver in his hand, planning to fix Richard Nixon's Wikipedia page. Lemon enters demanding that Jack take Dennis off the show but Jack is one step ahead. It's already been done. Duffy is being replaced with the 911 bird that dialed 911 with his beak.
Duffy does not take the news very well and walks out on Lemon, but she chases him to the subway platform. That's not the 47-50 stop as far as I can tell by the way. I'm pretty sure it's the Chelsea 14th street A,C,E stop. That always seems to be where they film movie scenes at for reasons only union workers know the answer to. Duffy lost his chance to be a success. Being with Liz and being a hero were his two greatest achievements and if only there were a way to get those things back. There's also a train coming. "I really believe that you're going to do something else great with your life," consoles Lemon. Duffy hardly hears her as he cranes his neck down the platform at a train that gets closer and closer to the station. It's like a scene out of The Taking of Pelham. Dennis wants her to go limp and help him out. The train pulls into the opposite track and Lemon slugs Duffy who swears it was all a goof. "Never again!" screams Lemon, but Dennis Duffy has the last word. "You'll be back Liz Lemon. You'll be back. You'll be back dummy."
