Storyline

Devon Banks visits the studio. Jack feels threatened by the younger competitor and tries to plan a live show with fireworks to prove he still is the best in his business. When Jack finds out that Devon is gay and has a thing for Kenneth, he tries to make Kenneth hang out with Devon to get information about his ideas for new shows. Liz sees the Flower Guy on his way to church on a Tuesday. This worries Liz since she thinks it's weird to go to church on a Tuesday. Liz also has some trouble with Scott, who gets on her nerves, since there is no chance that he is going to leave her apartment anytime soon. When Tracy has to submit DNA for a paternity test, he discovers that he is a direct descendant of Thomas Jefferson. Written by Anonymous

Strong, Funny Episode!
16 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The eighteenth episode in the first season of 30 Rock is one of the better episodes of the first season. There are some ridiculous, but really funny subplots. The comedic acting has nearly perfect timing thanks to guest appearance by Will Arnett. The jokes are really funny and well-scripted.

This episode, "Fireworks," has Jack in a competition with the younger Devon Banks and once realizing he is gay, he uses Kenneth to find out what he is up to. Meanwhile, Liz follows her Flower Guy into a random AA meeting. Finally, Tracy finds out he is a direct descendant of Thomas Jefferson.

Overall, this is one hilarious episode. My favorite scenes are the one involving Tracy and Thomas Jefferson. This and the other subplots are what makes this episode great. I rate this episode 9/10.
