Jenna mentions that she met Jayden 20 years ago. The scene then flashes back to Jenna getting dissed by a young Jayden. The costume she is wearing is essentially the same costume that Jane Krakowski wore 20 years previously in the Broadway musical Starlight Express. In addition, Jayden is dressed similar to the street urchin Gavroche in Les Miserables because the young boy playing that role on Broadway was also providing the voice of Control in Starlight.

When Grizz walks into Tracy's room to encourage Dot Com you can briefly see him holding yellow flowers behind his back. However, when he hands Dot Com what he's holding, it is then a paper origami crane (which Dot Com calls a pigeon). See more »


Jack Donaghy: You are at the top of the pyramid. Granted, TGS is a small pyramid, but nevertheless it will one day be your tomb. And you can't feel sorry for the slaves that built that pyramid, which, again, will be your tomb.

Audition Day (#4.4)
3 December 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Liz and Pete have auditions, they already know whom they want to hire and try to arrange auditions so that Jack chooses him. But Liz can't say no when Dot Com asks to audition and suddenly everyone involved is auditioning. And Tracy and Jenna go to get more people. At the same time Jack has bedbugs.

A pretty funny episode. I liked to see all the auditions! I was actually hoping that Dot Com will get it because he is a sweet character, but this would sure be unrealistic. It was also funny to see Kathy Geiss as a reference to Susan Boyle. Her running over Jayden was pretty good as well. No I am just wondering what the robot actor will be like!
