Synopsis


Avery tells Jack that she has sources telling her NBC is about to be bought by a cable company of out Philadelphia. Jack believes the whole story is nonsense. Later on at work, Jack gives Jonathan a mission to find out more details about this top-secret buyout. He wants Jonathan to visit his "assistant underworld."

The next morning, Jenna is angry over reading a rave review of Tracy in the newspaper for his theater debut. Tracy's happy because that means he's one more step closer to receiving that Tony he needs for his quest of an EGOT. Jenna fills Tracy in that he needs to do the same performance at least eight times in a row to be considered for the Tony.

Liz discovers a mystery number in her phone under the name, "Future Husband." Knowing she must have met him when she was under anesthesia in the dentist's office, Liz sets out on a mission to find the mystery man. Her dentist will only reveal he's English and Liz appeared to be enjoying his company in the waiting room. Kenneth encourages her to just call him.

Taking Kenneth's advice, Liz gets up the nerve to call her "future husband." She pretends to be from Dr. Kaplan's office and an English man answers the call by saying his name is Wesley. Liz puts on a Jamaican accent and convinces Wesley he needs to come back to the dentist office right away for another check-up.

Liz goes to the dentist office, eager to meet Wesley. When she dials his number to see which man in the waiting room answers, she spots him. He calls Liz right back and confronts her. Wesley wants to know why Liz comes up in his phone as "future wife." She takes it as a sign to invite him to coffee.

During Liz and Wesley's coffee date, the two find they have nothing in common. They have trouble even holding a conversation and both realize the date is a bust. The next day Liz runs into Wesley at work where he is returning Kenneth's wallet that he found in the street. Liz believes this might be fate and the two agree to a second date. He suggests Tex-Mex; Liz hates the food, but agrees to the date.

Jack finds out about the secret meeting NBC is holding in Connecticut and immediately heads there. Once he arrives, he encounters a very protective Jack Welch, who breaks the news that Don Geiss has died, three weeks ago. Jack Welch tells Jack to let it go, the deal is done!

After Liz's awkward date, she finds a depressed Jack in her office talking about NBC being bought by Kabletown. Jack feels so alone and knows he'll be erased from NBC's history. Liz offers Jack a shoulder to cry on.

Jenna offers to do a good deed and teach Tracy how to memorize his lines so he can perform on stage seven more times. He grows irritated with Jenna's teachings and wants to agree to disagree on the whole acting process. A frustrated Jenna quits her role as Tracy's teacher. But when she suggests Tracy just read the phone book on stage, both agree.

Avery hits the airwaves and breaks the news that Jack Donaghy is on top of his game. Avery also strengthens Jack's reputation by saying he's a shoe-in to take over the reigns once the NBC buyout takes place. Just then, Jack's phones start blowing up and he realizes he's back in business.
