Liz Lemon was born in November, 1970. Raised in the town of White Haven, Pennsylvania, Liz is the daughter and second child to Dick Lemon and Margaret Lemon (née Freeman). Liz's parents are outwardly very optimistic and supportive of her, but privately they actually dislike many of their daughter's attributes and life decisions, as revealed during the climax of "Ludachristmas". On Saturday, December 6, 1985, she made her one appearance as a varsity football player, having forced her high school to lift gender segregation. Though her parents displayed a supportive demeanor, they were too embarrassed to attend her game despite claiming to have been present. Liz's elder brother, Mitch, was the victim of a skiing accident the following day, when he was a high school senior. Afterwards, he experienced anterograde amnesia, remaining "stuck" in the day before the accident, thinking for the next 22 years that he was still 17 and that the year was still 1985. In the episode "The Moms," her mother is said to have worked as a secretary at Sterling Cooper and to have "repeatedly lost [her] virginity" to Buzz Aldrin while the town pervert watched from the bushes.
