Did You Know?


In this unaired pilot, Rachel Dratch co-stars as Jenna DeCarlo and a different, uncredited actress plays Cerie. Other differences include: Liz asks one more writer if he can do a better Leno impersonation that Josh and Josh is asked to do a Seinfeld impression too. Jacks assistant Jonathan is almost electrocuted by a loose cable as he exits the office. Kenneth leads his tour past Jenna's dressing room and private bathroom instead of the scene with Jenna meeting the Cat lady. The scene in Jack's office shows Rachel Dratch on the television screen in the background. A scene with Rachel Datch dressed up like a man and talking about her new apartment before she notices Jack. After Liz puts on the Laura Bush outfit she walks past the writers and Josh asks if he can use his 'Mr. Wang' voice in the cat lady sketch. Liz then asks Jack not to tell Jenna about her meeting with Tracy Jordan. Tracy's exchange with the waiter is slightly longer. When they go to his car, Liz asks if it runs on Jet fuel and Tracy responds it runs on 'Fame-Juice'. The discussion about 'Honkey Grandma Be Trippin' is different because it features the other Cerie and features a couple of different lines. At the chicken and waffles place, Tracy talks about his wife Angie with Lemon. Before Jack meets Jenna, he refuses to wear a headphone and Toofer tries to call Liz. Kenneth has gotten Jenna extra strength diarrhea medicine instead of hemorrhoid cream. When Liz tries to hail a cab, there is a cutaway to a yellow cab with a Girlie Show ad on top featuring Rachel Dratch. The music is different in the strip club scene and Liz and Tracy have a few extra lines before she leaves. We see that Liz left her phone in her jeans at work, after which she hits the wall outside with her bag in frustration. Liz's phone conversation with Kenneth is slightly different. Jenna and Jack discuss whether to cut or keep certain aspects of the cat lady sketch backstage and Jack approves Josh's Mr. Wang voice. Instead of picking one particular cat for the Cat Lady sketch, Jack says he wants 50. Liz calls Pete while still at the strip shop and grabs Tracy by the arm, forcing him to take her back to 30 Rock after watching her show start on a TV screen. Instead of Jenna having a problem with a cat on stage, the Cat Lady sketch fall completely flat. Liz tells Tracy to go on stage and 'drop some fame juice on it'. Tracy's interruption on stage is longer, including cutaways to the directors booth and the cue card guy. We see the fake 'Girls Show' end credits roll up on screen. After Tracy tells Jenna he's gonna do the show with her every week, she runs out into the street yelling 'I am a Jedi'. See more »
