 Jack wants Liz to book "The Subway Hero," New York's newest celebrity, who jumped in front of a train to save a total stranger who had fallen on the tracks. It turns out that the hero is none other than Liz's ex boyfriend, Dennis, "The Beeper King." Dennis agrees to do the show, and tries to win Liz back into his life. Meanwhile, Jack wants to find a young and hip Republican celebrity for the weekend's John McCain fundraising dinner, but the only talent he is able to secure is Bucky Bright, a TV star from the 1940s and 1950s. Though Jack rejects him, Kenneth is a fan and offers him a tour of the studio, which rewards him with many stories of old Hollywood. Meanwhile, Jack tries to persuade Tracy to become the celebrity face of the Republican Party. [1]
