Storyline

A fever-based illness runs through Studio 60, putting the rehearsals and show itself in jeopardy. Matt brings in former co-writer Andy, a deadpan friend who has the magic touch to whip Lucy and Darius into productivity. Harriet will be honored at a banquet, and struggles to tell a simple joke. Jordan finally grants an interview, but is all too honest; Jack stops just short of formally firing her. She announces her pregnancy by fainting into Danny's arms. Howie Mandel is guest host; we finally get to see one full sketch when Danny comes on stage to parody "Deal or No Deal" in the monologue. The cast loosen up backstage, and even the partial sketches are amusing. Written by norcekri

Trivia

Matt teaches Harriet a joke: "A Jewish guy calls his mother and says, 'Mom! How are you?' And the mother says, 'Terrible. I haven't eaten in 38 days.' And he says, 'Why haven't you eaten in 38 days?' And the mother says, 'I didn't want my mouth full in case you should call." In Aaron Sorkin's The West Wing (1999) Season 5, Episode 5, "Constituency of One," the character Amy tells this same joke to Josh. Writing for both episodes is credited to Eli Attie. See more »
