It’s the final countdown! In “Florida,” Jack was still riding the high of defeating Kaylie Hooper to claim his rightful spot as Kabletown CEO. But since the promotion wasn’t official just yet, he was tying up some loose ends. That included a trip to Florida to take care of his mother’s estate. He invited Liz to accompany him, and she agreed in an effort to be more spontaneous. But the mentor/mentee got quite a shock when they discovered that Colleen’s live-in nurse, Martha, was much more than a nurse. At first, Jack believed his mother had been scammed. But twist! Mrs. Silly Colleen had really taken a female lover, and just failed to tell Jack. 

While Jack attempted to process this new information, he and Liz had a heart-to-heart about their own strange, purely platonic, sister-ployee/work oracle relationship. (Martha assumed the two were married, so we got an excellent sight gag of them attempting to share a bed together, complete with Liz’s turtleneck pajamas.) Jack reminded Liz that their relationship was more interesting than a dating encounter would have been — sorry, Shippers! — and helped Liz realize she shouldn’t have any regrets. In the end, Jack had to rescue Liz from Harry Potter World, and he finally came to terms with his mother’s happiness. You know, normal stuff.

While Jack and Liz were away in the Sunshine State, Tracy and Jenna were left in charge. So naturally, a disaster was just around the corner. But it was worse than a disaster. It was the return of Hazel Wassername (a.k.a Richard Drench)! She filed a harassment suit against TGS, Tracy, and Jenna seeking $50 million in damages. NBC’s in-house counsel, Martin Lutherking (Tim Meadows), needed Tracy and Jenna to get the entire TGS staff to sign an affidavit stating they’d never witnessed or been a part of any inappropriate behavior. And they were successful with the exception of one holdout: Kenneth. He didn’t feel comfortable signing the affidavit because he didn’t want to lie. Tracy and Jenna convinced him that he had no choice. But after they saw the effect lying had on him, their guilt took over, and they let Kenneth come clean to Mr. Lutherking.
