Trivia

While Liz is talking to Aaron Sorkin about TV writing, he complains, "Our craft is dying while people are playing "Angry Birds" and poking each other on Facebook. What is poking anyway? Why won't anybody do it to me? I'm cool." Sorkin won a 2011 Best Writing (Adapted Screenplay) Oscar for the script of The Social Network (2010), a movie about the founding of Facebook.com.

Quotes

Liz Lemon: Kenneth! you beautiful goon! He's not in Africa; he's somewhere in the delivery zone of Federici's Pizza! We can find him and bring him back here, and no more forced hiatus!
Kenneth Parcell: I did it! I saved the show! Now I won't have to go to News.
Liz Lemon: And I won't have to be the world's worst hooker!
Liz Lemon: [scene changes to an alley where Liz is leaning into a car wearing a sweatshirt and a blue wig:] You wanna party? It's $500 for kissing and $10,000 for snuggling. End of list.

Plan B (#5.18)
15 December 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Because of Tray's Africa journey, TGS is going into a forced hiatus. Everyone is freaking out and goes for their plan B, especially worried is Liz who has no other skills but being a writer. Jack hires Devon who is a stay home dad now. And at the end it is Kenneth who manages to save the show.

It is a pretty funny episode. Of course especially awesome is to see Devon again. His rival exchanges with Jack are always great to watch. And his using his baby to be liked by the company was so him! Especially claiming that he brought the sexiest one.

Tracy was funny in his few minutes as well, will be great to see him back.
