Synopsis


In order for Liz to meet the man of her dreams, she signs up for community dodgeball, but takes the game a little too seriously. Jenna offers to be Liz's wingman when it comes to flirting.

Jack is settled into his decision to date Avery until Nancy shows up announcing she's now fully divorced and ready to start new with Jack. Nancy takes Jack out for his birthday and propositions him to stay the night with her instead of following through with his other plans, which happen to be going to a party with Avery.

Toofer finds out the only reason Liz hired him was to fill a diversity quota, and his salary comes from the network and not from the show. Toofer feels he did not earn his job and quits TGS.

After Jack's black tie event with Avery, he sneaks off to Nancy's hotel and settles in for a night of movies and beer. This fits his bill as the perfect evening until Avery calls from the party wanting Jack to join her at Derek Jeter's after-party. Jack makes up an excuse to leave Nancy's hotel and head to back to Avery.

Jack and Avery go out to dinner the next night and the topic of age difference comes up. Avery tells Jack to not get so serious with the conversation since they've only been going out a month. She lightens the situation by giving Jack his birthday present, the cufflinks that Ronald Reagan was wearing when he was buried. Jack is moved to tears.

Liz helps Jack sneak a date with Avery by taking Nancy to her single's mixer. Nancy gives Liz advice on men and Liz follows through. The next time Liz is at dodgeball, she does a little more flirting and tells a cute guy what she is really looking for in a man. Only to find out the cute guy doesn't even speak English.

After Liz goes off on a rant that nobody should receive special treatment based on their sex or race, Pete digs up her personal files. He confronts Liz on all the times she received special treatment because she's female, and reveals that the only reason Liz's show TGS was ever picked up was because NBC also once picked up a show called "Bitch Hunter."

Jack admits that Liz was only hired because of affirmative action. Liz can't believe it, but Jack is too preoccupied with deciding which woman is right for him. Nancy interrupts the two to announce she's heading back to Boston but wants to see Jack again in a few weeks. Liz tries to get Jack's attention, but he's too caught in the moment, hugging Nancy and watching Avery on his television screen.
