The last line where Jack says he will find some Canadian that will take his money is cut short by the Executive Producer credit. The in-joke is a nod to Canadian Lorne Michaels who will presumably take people's money. See more »


Lorne: You know, you remind me of my parents.
Jack Donaghy: I find that hard to believe.
Lorne: They were both really intense. They wanted me to grow up to be Prime Minister, so as a kid, I had to win the spelling bee. They made me memorize all 700 words in the Canadian dictionary, then I had to go to law school.
Jack Donaghy: You went to law school?
Lorne: For one day. I was just so tightly wound that I got kicked out for karate chopping my roommate. I know, I'm a stereotype. All guys from Quebec are good at karate.

Double-Edged Sword (#5.14)
14 December 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Liz goes on a romantic get away with Carol on the plane he flies. But the delay causes tension in their relationship, and can people who are so alike be together? Jack and Avery go to Toronto when she starts an earlier than expected birth, so they try their best to get back to America. And Tracy is under pressure after winning an award.

Great episode. Loved the whole controversy between Liz and Carol on the plane. So many fun moments.

Same goes for Avery and Jack story. Them trying to make sure that their daughter is American so she can be president is hilarious. And it has a great guest star of John Cho with his mobile meth lab. "It is so rude of me, would you like to try some meth?" was one of my favorite lines in the episode!
