In this episode the cast is filmed on a high definition camera. It shows up the flaws in Liz and Pete's appearance, but portrays Jack as youthful and handsome. The image of a younger Alec Baldwin
is actually taken from his film The Hunt for Red October
(1990) - if you look closely you can see that the dark suit high-definition Jack is wearing is actually a naval officer's uniform with the rank badges and insignia digitally removed. Jack's office is also decorated with various pictures and models of naval ships which may also be a subtle reference. See more
You've created two Lizzes, writer Liz and performer Liz. Performers need to be coddled, to be protected from the real world.
I get it. I must treat her like the New York Times treats its readers.
