Added DiffLines:

* LuxuriousLiquor: Jack Donaghy is a CorruptCorporateExecutive and MagnificentBastard who likes fine whiskey. Often shown drinking or needing a drink, rarely shown visibly drunk. This trope is lampshaded ''constantly''.
-->"Business drunk is like rich drunk. Either way it's legal to drive."

Added DiffLines:

** In her book ''Bossypants'', Tina Fey points out that Prince Gerhardt from "Black Tie" could be seen as a metaphor for NBC. He's the grotesque, barely-functioning relic of a once-proud family, mirroring the way NBC went from being a powerhouse in the 90's to an utter joke by TheNewTens.

** That is actually a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/False_pregnancy real medical condition]], according to TheOtherWiki, and it really is called a hysterical pregnancy. The absurd part is that Jenna goes from not-pregnant to ''[[RealLifeWritesThePlot nine months pregnant]]'' to not-pregnant again within a single day, and the changes occur instantly.

* UniquePilotTitleSequence: The opening credits of the first episode feature Liz in a ''ThatGirl'' / ''TheMaryTylerMooreShow''-type opening, but this ends up as a LeftTheBackgroundMusicOn gag and actually they're singing about the ShowWithinTheShow character "Pam, the Overly-Confident Morbidly Obese Woman". The second episode introduces the regular opening credits (although the Pam tune is frequently heard as background music during the series, when Liz is on-screen.)

* ThatOtherWiki: When Jenna is doing method acting preparation to play a CaptainErsatz of Janis Joplin, the writers mess with her by adding ridiculous lies to her {{Wikipedia}} page so that Jenna will emulate them.

** Also used for Creator/WeirdAlYankovic's guest spot during his credits parody of the theme song. The original lyrics were "Where the ratings are dismal...", but some random guy dubbed over "dismal" and replaced with "awesome!". The original "dismal" recording is shown during Al's concerts.

** In "Luda-Christmas", a flashback shows Kenneth working at a video store just after ''WallStreet'' was released. He looks exactly the same, despite twenty years having passed in the meantime.
