But what if that man wasn't his father, but actually just a past self? We never get much about his past or his youth that would make a concrete case of age, just past adventures like working with Saddam Hussein, a marriage where he murdered his wife, just one off gags.

In fact his name could've likely been a big tip off since its spelled the same as Specimen, like a science specimen (possibly one done my nazi mad scientists?)

Based on a few things: There's a throwaway line where Liz tells Jack that of course she is a woman, that doctor was a "quack" anyway and her parents shouldn't have trusted him. Later, in one of the final seasons, there's another throwaway line where her boyfriend comments on her being a woman, but then wonders why he's never seen baby pictures of her. It's possible she was born with some sort of ambiguous genitalia and that the doctor who delivered her declared her male, which wasn't corrected until her parents took her to a different doctor who steered her parents in the other direction. This might also have had something to do with her inability to conceive. As a bonus, it adds a little something to the scene in which she receives the gender neutral doll - with both sets of genitals - that she always wanted as a kid. While there would be nothing unusual about her wanting it even if she wasn't/isn't intersex, it could be seen as her being excited about a doll she felt was at least somewhat like her.

[[WMG: Doctor Leo Specimen is immortal as well]]
In the second live episode of the series, the good doctor's actor plays both him and another character with the same name during a show's advertisement from the 1950s. The weird part comes from how both times he's on the show, his character calls himself "nazi doctor Specimen", though with different names. At first glance, you'd think it was just Leo Specimen's father for a flashback.

Liz's great-granddaughter essentially pitches the same show Liz did-- one based on her life as the writer of TGS-- but tells her that he loves the idea, while Liz couldn't even finish her pitch. Kenneth being Kenneth, he likely did love the idea just as much when Liz suggested it, and could have green-lit the show despite the concept being on his no-no list. So why didn't he, and why did he green-light it 100 years later? Because he wanted this show to be adored. If he has said yes to Liz, the show would have been in the same position as 30 Rock was: critically adored, cult following, but always on the bubble, because it wasn't what people wanted. Rather than dooming something that likely would have meant a great deal to him to cult status, Kenneth said no, biding his time. 100 years later, Liz's great-granddaughter comes in to pitch a series about Liz and TGS, but this time, audiences tastes have shifted, so much so that a smart period comedy about a fictionalized version of a cult sketch comedy show's production would be a huge success.

* There was also a deleted scene from "Mamma Mia" in which a WorldWarTwo veteran recognizes him as one of his war buddies.

** Liz is way too social to have Aspergers. Liz was a part of [[TheWindyCity Second City]] back in the day. A person with Aspergers would not be able to go and perform in front of a bunch of people like that.
