"Blind Date" is the third episode of the first season of the American situation comedy "30 Rock", which aired on October 25, 2006 on the NBC network in the United States.


Jack is concerned that Liz is stressed and underperforming because of a lack of human contact. He suggests that she go on a date with his friend Thomas, which she initially refuses. When she almost chokes to death alone in her apartment that night, an action that Jack foreshadowed as the "a single woman's biggest worry," she changes her mind.

Poker Night is a Thursday night tradition among the "TGS with Tracy Jordan" staff. Jack and Tracy join in the action for the first time. Jack instantly raises the stakes as the staff goes from betting quarters to betting hundreds of dollars, Emmy awards, and their wedding rings. Jack is able to read and defeat all of the other players, except for Kenneth, who wins the final hand.

Liz meets her date in a restaurant and finds that Jack has set her up with Gretchen Thomas, a lesbian. Although Liz and Gretchen have great chemistry, Gretchen is not interested in chasing after a straight woman. The next day, Liz chastises Jack for thinking she was a lesbian. At night, Liz gets lonely and calls Gretchen. After sharing their fears as single women, they go to dinner.

Jack sets up another poker night on Friday, this time with fancier tables, hors d'oeuvres, and professional dealers. Liz brings Gretchen over, and all of the staff takes a liking to her.

Eventually, Jack and Kenneth come down to the final hand. Jack has more chips and goes all-in. He offers to make the hand winner-take-all if Kenneth bets his page jacket. Kenneth agrees, and Jack's pair of twos beats Kenneth's king high. Liz asks why Kenneth would bet on a hand like that, and he responds that he enjoys living on the edge and was also confused about the rules. Jack stops Kenneth from leaving, explains that he only made Kenneth bet his job to prove his power over him, and returns the jacket to Kenneth with the expectation that he come in early on Monday. Jack tells Liz that he believes that within five years, Kenneth will either take over the company or kill everybody in it.

Liz and Gretchen stop going out together after Gretchen insists that their relationship become romantic to continue.
