Over in Lemon's office, she moans to Pete about Tracy and Jenna's antics. He offers some advice, but it's not a good fit. Before he heads off, he casually mentions that his wife read Lemon's book, then shoves Lemon into the wall.
Jack sashays into the writers' room with a light bulb and calls a brainstorming session. Of course, he tells Lutz to stop mouth-breathing first. He introduces them to an engineer from the microwave decision and tells the writers that all he needs is "one idea that is as good as the light bulb." Frank pitches in with a tearful story about how sometimes burritos are too big the microwave and won't rotate. Jack supports the idea of bigger microwaves, moving on. Toofer suggests making microwaves that break down more easily so people are force to buy new ones more often. And now we're talking: "Bigger and not as well made." Pete points out that that line of thinking seemed to be the operative philosophy of the auto industry. And that turned out well! Jack insists that GE isn't the auto industry and that, so help them God, they'll make a giant, flimsy microwave for America. Jack leaves, and Lutz lets out a deluge of mouth breaths.
Upstairs, Jack, Toofer, and Frank watch as the engineer tries to execute a microwave with their insane requirements. The machine quickly morphs into an electronics disaster with four small doors and wheels. Because that's what you want -- a rolling microwaves. Make sure to put it right next to the sink or, Hell, the bathtub!
Iceland, Jenna prepares for her one minute of darkness. The sun sets dramatically, and she gets distracted by a continuity issue. Before she can get her line out, the sun returns. She smiles and shouts, "Great day, everyone! You guys are the real stars." The student director throws down his hat.
Lemon returns home to find Tracy's million rescue animals sitting and panting happily in her apartment. Tracy smiles evilly. "Bum, bum, bummmmmm." Cut to Jack's office. He resolves their conflict by giving Lemon a dose of her own medicine. He promises Tracy the rights to Lemon's life. Tracy says he plans to do something humiliating with them and exits. Jack assures Lemon (with a colorful anecdote) that sometimes the only way out is down.
And down she goes. Downstairs at least... She finds Jenna has returned from Iceland due to a permanent hiatus on the movie. Lemon starts to hash out their conflict, but Jenna cuts her off, saying she has to go on. She claims she has mercury poisoning -- "from obsessively taking my rectal temperature." Now that's something I would have actually believed from the lips of Piven.
