Jenna was excited that her movie, The Rural Juror, was being distributed in limited release. Liz had a problem with the title of the movie, but couldn't let Jenna know. Jenna was just excited to be getting more attention than Tracy around the studio.
Liz caught a sneak peak at Jenna's movie and hated it. She tried to avoid Jenna at work so she wouldn't be forced to lie and say she liked it. She told Pete that every time she had to see one of Jenna's performances, she would say one nice thing about it and then end the conversation with a hug.
Tracy was in desperate need of $100,000 to save both of his houses. Jack said that Tracy should brand his name somehow to make more money. Tracy pitched the idea of a meat machine, The Tracy Jordan Meat Machine!
Liz ran into Jenna and told her she loved the movie's soundtrack. Jenna wanted to know what Liz actually thought of the movie. Liz told her she thought the movie was a train wreck. Jenna thanked her for her honesty and walked away. Liz felt terrible.
Tracy teamed up with Dr. Spaceman to create an informercial for his Tracy Jordan Meat Machine. When Kenneth tried the machine out he was severely burned by the grease from the machine. Jack came up with the idea to sell the machine to another country without regulations. But, Tracy had reservations.
Jenna was being a pain to work with on the set and called Liz's sketch a train wreck. Finally, they had a war of words in front of the entire staff. Jenna admitted she slept with Liz's brother, Mitch and he was disgusting. Jack broke up the fight and demanded they go to his office.
Jack told Jenna that she should be thanking Liz for saving her job when Jack wanted to fire her. But, then Liz admitted that Jenna was right, she was jealous with how advanced her career had become and Liz was stuck just being a writer. They made up and became friends again.
