Trivia

When Liz walks into Jack Donaghy's office, Jack's assistant Jonathon is unpacking bags from a (fictitious) store named "Vattene". Vattene is Italian for "Get out" or "Get the hell outta here". Appropriate since Jonathon would probably like to express those exact sentiments to Liz (upset that Liz made Jack's Xmas list). See more »

Goofs

Cerie's claim that her mother was born in 1976 is highly unlikely to be right. In season one she mentioned that her mother was around 38, making her born in about 1968 and a 1976 birth would only make her around 11 or 12 when Cerie herself was born. See more »

Quotes

Toofer: Kenneth is doing a Secret Santa fun swap thing!
Frank Rossitano: Urgh, he takes the 2 worst parts of Christmas, giving and rules and combines them!
Kenneth Parcell: [Flash back] And then the person with the highest number gives the smallest gift to the tallest person and if they want to switch they cannot unless they do then everyone puts their head down except the murderer - oh wait that's not right.
Frank Rossitano: The whole thing was so confusing I ended up getting my crappy gift back, like I need 2 copies of over 60 Vixens

More of Moore!
10 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Oscar Nominee Julianne Moore plays Nancy Donovan, a suburban mother, who went to high school with Alec Baldwin. She's got a thick Boston accident in this episode who reunites with him on a face book kind of site. Who doesn't love watching them at Rockefeller Center where there is the Christmas tree and ice rink. Anyway, Julianne Moore should nail an Emmy nomination for this appearance. While Jane Krakowski's Jenna is upset because she can't sing front-stage and the beloved studio page feels betrayed by the writers' who create a religion to throw him off so they don't do secret Santa. Of course, Liz is trying to find the perfect gift for her boss, Jack.
