So we're agreed. Assuming nothing goes wrong in the next eight hours, Jayden Michael Tyler will be the next T.G.S. cast member.
   Liz:
Rate This Quote
Eight cities, 40 comics, one slap fight with a T.S.A. agent. I'm done. Jayden's the one. Now we just have to make Jack think that hiring Jayden was his decision. Who are the decoys we will be using for the audition?
   Pete:
Rate This Quote
A middle-aged female comic with a bolo tie. A one-man band who only plays Halloween music. And Australia's Jackie Mason. Jack will hate all of them and pick Jayden.
   Liz:

I hate doing this to people. They all think this is their big break, but we're just using them.

And then, you call your mom and tell her, ''It went great,'' and you've got a really good feeling about this year.

I know it's not fun, but you are making this guy's dreams come true. At your age, it's probably the last time you'll ever make a man happy.
   Jack:

Ha! That's true. Liz is old. Uh, where are we on this audition?
   Liz:

Uh, we've narrowed it down to four people for this afternoon.
   Jack:

I'm already not liking some of these people. It reminds me of being on the bus.
   Liz:
Rate This Quote
Hey, come on, guys, these are people up here, with feelings and mothers who worry about them.
   Jack:
Rate This Quote
Lemon, stop right there. You are on top of the pyramid. T.G.S. is a small pyramid, which nevertheless, will one day be your tomb. You can't let emotions distract you from making decisions about the slaves who built the pyramid which, again, will one day be your tomb.
   Liz:
Rate This Quote
Jeez, sorry I'm not a robot.
   Jack:
Rate This Quote
We all are. But we're getting there. In 10 years, this will all be the size of a microchip. Until then, you're in charge. Think like a robot. Be logical and dispassionate.

Yes, fine, we're stacking the deck for Jayden. Let me guess what your problem is with him. He's a talented actor and you're threatened by that.

No, I know him, Liz. We did a play together 20 years ago, and we were best friends. Until he betrayed me.

Pete, stop it. You know my fontanelle never closed. I tried to be strong, but I just couldn't tell him no. And now, I don't have to, see? Because we are making it Jack's decision.

We were. But now you've compromised the Hornberger System. It's four people for a reason. The first guy, Jack's settling in. The second, he hates. The third is Jayden. The fourth proves how good Jayden is. The more people you add, the less effective it is. Like a neighborhood dad garage band.
