Synopsis


Jack introduced Liz to Devon Banks. He was a big shot West coast NBC exec that Jack was convinced wanted his job. Jack hatched a plan and hoped that Devon would divulge all of his secrets to his object of lust, Kenneth!

Liz was intrigued when she saw her work crush slipping into church on a Tuesday afternoon. She confided in her new roommate, Pete, about the situation. He told her relationships do nothing but people turn into a weeping mess.

Tracy was facing charges that he fathered a child out of wedlock. Dr. Spaceman confirmed that Tracy was NOT the father of the child and Tracy was off the hook. Dr. Spaceman told Tracy his DNA test found some other startling news, Tracy was a descendant of Thomas Jefferson.

Liz impulsively followed Floyd into church one afternoon and was shocked at what she saw: he was attending A.A. meetings! She told Pete it was touching to see her crush open up and share his emotions in the meeting.

Floyd became concerned when Liz didn't show up for a meeting. He offered to be a shoulder to lean on and she took him up on an offer to get coffee. Liz hoped the coffee date would go further, but Floyd reminded her that he needed the rules of A.A., including not dating another person from his meeting.

Kenneth teased Devon by dancing for him. Devon caught on that Jack was using Kenneth to seduce him and refused anymore contact.

After realizing how much she liked Floyd, Liz confessed the truth. She told Floyd she wasn't really an alcoholic and lied just to get closer to him. He felt betrayed and left Liz's apartment. To top things off, she was super late to Jack's morning meeting.

Jack and Devon took turns pitching ideas to NBC execs. Jack was fighting for his job, while Devon wanted it! Devon wanted things big and for mobile, while Jack wanted to keep television small and funny. He called his show idea, "Rockefeller Center Salute to Fireworks". The execs loved Jack's idea.

Liz felt guilty that Floyd had divulged secret things about himself in his A.A. meeting and so she had confessed some of her own secrets to him. He forgave her with a kiss and later that night they watched Jack's amazing idea hit the airwaves. Liz and Floyd cringed as Jack's three-hour show dedicated to fireworks looked more like a terrorist attack on New York City.
