When Tracy Jordan (Tracy Morgan
) is crying about his high school dissection trauma, saying he wasn't a baby, he was chicken, Milton Green (Alan Alda
) says "Crying about babies and chickens? I thought this was a comedy show." This is a reference to the final episode of Alda's M*A*S*H
(1972) series. In that episode, entitled _M*A*S*H Goodbye, Farewell, and Amen (1983_ )the Alan Alda
character Hawkeye Pierce spends much of the episode in a psychiatric hospital, having witnessed a traumatic event. He remembers a Korean woman killing a chicken, so as to not be heard by enemy soldiers. Upon treatment, however, he recalls the truth - that it was a baby. Much like Tracy's character, he cries when asked if it was a chicken. He says "Oh, my God! Oh, my God! I didn't mean for her to kill it. I did not - I - I just wanted it to be quiet. It was - it was a baby! She, she smothered her own baby!!" See more
