Season 3: ''The Funcooker''
”I’ve got my Princess Leia outfit and my copies of Playgirl magazines from the early ’80s,” announces Liz Lemon, attempting to get out of jury duty. After cloaking herself in the Star Wars character’s white costume — complete with the signature side buns — Lemon delivers this gem on the stand: ”I really don’t think it’s fair for me to be on a jury since I’m a hologram.” Dismissed!
Season 1: ''Corporate Crush''
”I just recently found out that [Thomas Jefferson] went to town on one of my ancestors,” says Tracy of learning that the Founding Father is a distant relative. Jordan later announces his plans to play the Founding Father in a self-financed biopic.
Season 1: ''Fireworks''
Jack Donaghy also appears as the Third U.S. President in a dream sequence later in season one. Tina Fey told EW that dressing Baldwin up as Jefferson is ”one of my favorite things that we ever got to do.”
Season 6: ''The Tuxedo Begins''
Part nod to Batman‘s Joker, part girl gone wild, Liz dons a grey wig and smeared make-up in an effort to keep people away. ”I am sick — sick like a fox,” she says. ”I’m going to clear out that whole theater and watch a sneak peak of The Hunger Games by myself. It will be my greatest triumph.” Her strategy works — or maybe it was something that she said: ”I’m pregnant with a kitty cat! Those are my popsicles!”
Season 6: ''Live from Studio 6H''
Tacking the tricky subject of racially-charged humor, an Amos ‘n’ Andy-inspired show called Alfie and Abnera included a cameo by Jon Hamm, dressed in overalls and black face make-up. The bit raised a few eyebrows, but you can’t deny it’s an image that’s hard to shake.
Season 3: ''Believe in the Stars''
Talk about role reversal: To settle an argument, Jenna and Tracy dress in drag to find out once and for all whether it’s harder to be a white woman or black man in America. ”Women are the oppressed ones,” argues Jenna. ”And it’s even harder being a beautiful woman. Everyone assumes I don’t try in bed. It’s discrimination!”
Season 5: ''Reaganing''
A flashback reveals a nine-year-old Liz in roller skates with a ”new haircut, which everybody thought was a Dorothy Hamill, but was actually a Pete Rose.” Pulling it off, Lemon!
Season 6: ''Leap Day''
Is that the Monopoly Man? No, it’s Kenneth, dressed as Leap Day William! ”Did you not grow up with Leap Day William?” he asks Liz. ”He lives in the Mariana trench. He emerges every four years to trade children’s tears for candy.”
