We return to the cash cab, where Tracy uses this little gem to figure out the construction date for the Statue of Liberty: "I remember going to the Statue of Liberty centennial, 'cause that year someone had spread a rumor that she was gonna slip outta her toga, and I wanted to see some green boobies. And the Mets had just won the World Series, 'cause that night I was randomly attacked by a Mets fan that I had threw a bottle at. That was 1986. And centennial is a hundred years, because 'centipeding' is having sex with a hundred women. I got it! 1886." Ladies and gentleman, this is how Tracy lives his life. Next up, Tracy easily answers that Shamu is an Orca whale, adding for the host's benefit that an Orca is very difficult to keep in a home aquarium.
Meanwhile, Jack continues taping his film, advising his son never to hire Sting to play at his wedding reception. He deems the singer's jazz versions of Police songs "demoralizing." He also says that in the case that Avery meets another man, that man's death must appear accidental, and the secret to healthy hair is dove blood. Just as he's about to demonstrate a back flip, he hears sneezing from his draperies. He pulls them back to find Kenneth sweeping his terrace. Jack tells Kenneth to move on and harshly dismisses him. He looks back at the camera to tell his son that he just gave Kenneth tough love and sent the youngster on his way. Next lesson: Juggling!
Downstairs, Brian Williams and Andrea Mitchell spread the rumors about Lemon and Richie, Nightly News-style. Lemon stomps into the edit suite to confront Richie. She tells Richie that she was only nice to him because she's in a relationship, then takes her hug back forcefully. Richie pulls Lemon into a private editing room to explain that he, too, was just trying to follow the "When it rains, it pours" model, because he's trying to catch the attention of his perm-tastic assistant editor, Donna Strunk. He apologizes but says he was driven to desperate measures because he's loved Donna for seven years. Cue Streetcar Named Desire-esque wailing with the name "Donna" where "Stella" would normally be. Lemon sees his anguish and offers to make him a deal.
