Trivia

When Toofer replies ("... if you're nasty") to Jenna's request to be only addressed by the names Janis or Ms. Joplin, he references Janet Jackson's song "Nasty". It contains the lines: "No, my first name ain't baby / It's Janet - Miss Jackson if you're nasty." See more »

Quotes

Toofer: You know, there's a conspiracy theory that, after the civil war, the U.S. government spread false information about diabetes to keep the newly-freed slaves sluggish and docile, which is why, to this date, most African Americans don't understand that diabetes is caused by sleeping on your back.

Retreat to Move Forward was another nearly-great episode of "30 Rock"
13 February 2009 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

In this episode, Jack invites Liz to a keynote speaker address meeting where he'll encounter some elderly members of a Six Segma club, Jenna, on Frank's suggestion, looks up Wikipedia for research on her preparation in playing Janis Joplin not knowing Frank put some lies there, and Tracy, after a visit to Dr. Spaceman, finds out he has diabetes but even with Kenneth's telling of a which who eats brains for those how don't eat vegetables, Tracy still eats his candy...Another very funny episode of "30 Rock" with my favorite scene being when Liz was making that Lego train and she mentions dropping it because she thought it was her penis then saying, "Robot penis." in a monotone voice! And how about when Jack embarrasses himself by accidentally leaving his body mic on when practicing his speech in front of a mirror. And that twist about Frank being too embarrassed about macking with Jenna to tell his fellow writers when Jenna feels she should be the embarrassed one so she tells them! And then there's Kenneth posing as the witch. So with all that said, Retreat to Move Forward was another very funny episode of "30 Rock".
