Gentleman's Intermission (#5.6)
8 December 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Avery is uncomfortable with the mentor relationship Jack and Liz have and tells them to stop. Liz has trouble without him knowing that her dad is in town now taking a break from his marriage and Jack also can't live without it, looking for someone new to mentor. In the meantime Tracy sees his obituary and is upset about it while Jenna is mad that she has no obituary at all.

A great episode. Love the relationship of Jack and Liz. It is also great to see Jack testing the rest of the team if they can have him as a mentor and have everyone fail. Many great scenes.

The obituary story is very funny as well, especially when Jenna suggests that hers should have her shop lifting story in it because her arms looked great.
