* BlackComedy: Avery is kidnapped and forcefully made into a PropagandaMachine...and it's played for laughs! Yet again this is the same creator that managed to make [[Series/UnbreakableKimmySchmdit getting kidnapped by a cult funny]].

** Creator/JimCarrey playing himself in a role in ''Leap Dave Williams'', which is a cross between ''TheSantaClause'' and ''Film/LiarLiar''. His wife is played by Andie [=McDowell=].

* EvilLawyerJoke: Amusingly dodged when Frank says that Stephen Black works for the law firm "Dewey, Cheatum & Livingston," narrowly averting the old joke name for a law firm, "Dewey, Cheatum & Howe," a {{pun}} on "Do we cheat 'em and how!"

* MissingReflection: When Liz was desperately trying to avoid anyone with a flu, she used a pocket mirror to see if anyone was around a corner and saw nothing. When she walks around the corner, she bumps right into Kenneth.
-->'''Kenneth:''' When I look in the mirror, all I see is a white haze.

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.
