Sure; Jack Donaghy inspired a fair bit of vitriol whilst roaming the halls of 30 Rockefeller Plaza in his finest pressed suits, but he ultimately became one of The TGS Show With Tracy Jordan’s most fervent supporters. His relationship with Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) was loaded with potentially friendship-ruining personality differences, but the two titans of vastly disparate worlds wisely used that comedic friction to their advantage. Donaghy, though certainly a calm and confident presence in the business world, was occasionally prone to moments of great whimsy and undeniable creativity—such as that time he briefly joined the show’s writing staff to properly put his Six Sigma knowledge to good use. These complexities, and Donaghy’s willingness to embrace them, make this former vice president of East Coast Television and Microwave Oven Programming an Irish gentleman worth emulating. After all, embracing one’s contradictions is often the first step toward becoming a true gentleman.
