A 30 Rock Scene, From Tina Fey's Bossypants

Reading Bossypants, the current bestselling book by Tina Fey, I came across this amusing and very dream-typical scene from Tina's show, 30 Rock. It is so clever and accurate, as it demonstrates the sleeping brain's connections, representing an identity with another person's face/body, but they take it a step further and point out how ironic that is-

"Tracy, anxious over this change in his racial identity, dreams that he is on a paternity test episode of The Maury Povich Show with Thomas Jefferson. Played, for dream-logic and financial reasons, by Alec Baldwin.

MAURY POVICH: Sally Hemings just called you a dog, Thomas Jefferson.

THOMAS JEFFERSON (Alec Baldwin): I don't care. This is about Tracy. I rode a horse all the way from Heaven to tell him something. "
