Trivia

The Mother's Day episode of "TGS" ends with the mothers each singing a piece of a cheerful song. At least two of the mothers are played by actresses who are primarily famous for their roles in Broadway musicals - Elaine Stritch, who plays Colleen (Jack's mom) and Patti LuPone, who plays Sylvia Rossitano (Frank's mom). LuPone deliberately sang her character's line off-key, even though she has won two Tony awards for musical theater performances (and been nominated for another three). See more »

The Moms (#4.20)
8 December 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It is mother's day special on the show and all the mothers are back to participate in it. Jack and his mom fight over Jack having two women and not be able to choose one. Liz is upset finding out her mom didn't go fr her true love, the astronaut. Jenna's mom is playing the good mom part to make money for her other boob implant. And Tracy is getting a cast for his fake mom that he doesn't like.

A pretty funny episode. I like the mothers of all characters. They are so well developed as characters to show how our cast became who they are. My favorite was actually the Tracy story. It is funny how the fake mom story had the most heart warming message. And I did laugh a lot about Jenna's mom. Although I did feel a bit bad for Jenna. Danny finding out he was adopted was a funny part as well.
