In the finale, Jack loves Liz . . . like their Anglo-Saxon forebears would have loved each other:
Jack: Lemon, there is a word, a once special word thatís been tragically co-opted by the romance industrial complex, and I would hate to use it here and have you think that I am suggesting any type of romantic sentiment, let alone an invitation to scale bone mountain. Itís a word that comes to us by way of the old high German "luba" from the Latin "lubera" meaning "to be pleasing." So Iím going to use this word to describe how I feel about you in the way that our Anglo-Saxon forefathers would have used it in reference to say "hot bowl of bear meat" or "your enemy's skull split.
Liz: I love you too, Jack.
- In the finale, Tracy spends almost the whole episode looking for Kenneth/trying to get in touch with him which is made 100x more difficult since Kenneth is president of NBC. It seems like Tracy is just being his usual needy self. But when he finally finds him, it's so that Tracy can release Kenneth from his promise of always being there for Tracy, knowing that otherwise, Kenneth might spend more time and effort on Tracy rather than on more important things.
- However, the entire reason Tracy suffers severe abandonment issues gets closure, as his father returns from getting cigarettes. It's one of the only times Tracy is ever unconditionally happy.
- The final scene; we zoom out of a snow globe of 30 Rock and see Kenneth discussing the idea of a 30 Rock TV show with a "Miss Lemon". It seems like a send up of the controversial ending of St. Elsewhere, in which it was All Just a Dream. But then we see flying cars going past Kenneth's window, and realize it is the future; the "Miss Lemon" is actually Liz's descendant, basing a show on the stories her great grandmother told her. She tells Kenneth this and he (looking no older, by the way) says "I know... and I love it!"
