Last night’s 30 Rock revolved around Liz’s efforts to organize her life and get out of jury duty by dressing up as Princess Leia, her staff’s (and the arsonist for whom she was a juror’s) attempts to drive her to burn her office to the ground, and Jack’s co-opting of the writers (“Shut up, everybody! Shut up, Lutz!”) to try to find a new name for the new GE “pocket microwave” (with a ham button.) This episode contained two of the funniest scenes of the season.

Liz takes Tracy to task for thinking he can use his own money to pay FCC fines for saying bad words on the air. I can’t tell what they’re saying here, but I’m pretty sure the word “jizz” is involved. If you read lips well, please help. I have to know:

And the funniest: Jack tries to use Scrabble tiles to come up with a name for the pocket microwave:

Also, I want there to be an animated .gif of Liz’s face here and name it “Friday afternoons”:

If you missed the whole episode, it’s on Hulu as usual. Don’t forget: Tracy Morgan is hosting SNL tomorrow night. It’d better be perfect!

  1. After the last two had a bit of a lower laugh ratio I was getting kind of worried, but this episode was genius! I really hope we get more footage of the Janet Joppler movie.

  2. I loved it when Jenna was clawing at the window! Dr. Spaceman!

  3. I loved Dr Spacemen’s apparently on the rocks relationship with his nurse. “I know we’re fighting, but I need to borrow your car.” Why doesn’t HE have his own web series?

  4. how about those other jury members? Kid with Moustache, right.

  5. Does the ‘Bite Nuker’ really translate to something offensive in German?

    • Not unless Nuker is slang for something. Bitte is please. Maybe it’s “bitch pleeeze” but I doubt it. Nope not bitch. That would be Miststück or Weibsstück. Probably nonsense.

        I guess it could be translated to bitte and then something like: neuken 9which is a dutch word, but i think it could be used in german?) that basically means wanna f*ck?

  6. The scrabble bit was hilarious.

  7. Haha…the look on Toofer’s face during Scrabulous!

    Oh gosh, I love Liz Lemon with a passion. Last night was kinda ‘eh’ for me, but I still loved it.

    Have you read about how Tina Fey and Steve Carell are making a movie together (http://squareeyes.blinkx.com/?p=441)? It had me daydreamin’ ’bout what it’d be like if Liz Lemon met Michael Scott…

  10. Last night I kept trying to read what Tracy was saying… I think assfucker was in there? But I was ultimately unsuccessful.

    However, I DID say to my husband, “fifty bucks says somebody on Videogum has this figured out by tomorrow.” Somebody save me fifty bucks, come ON.

  11. my wife said, “I think Tina Fey just said ‘gosh darn’”
    to which I replied, “I thought she said ‘cocksuckin!’”

    mars and venus, right guys?

    Dudes, they never said it would be offensive in German, but in “franco-dutch” (which I am). Bite means “dick” in French and Nuker means “fucker” in Dutch. And there you have it…

  13. ASS FACE FUCK or SEX JIZZ

  14. Can I get a 2 second clip of Dr Spaceman running down the hall shouting JENNAHASTOSLEEPORELSESHEWILLDIE!! ?

  15. Strange. I thought you would have mentioned, in fact led with, the fact that that lady writer actually got a chance to speak, and it turns out that she’s Franco-German. Three seasons of silence was just set-up for that joke. Genius.

  16. Strange. I thought you would have mentioned, in fact led with, the fact that that lady writer actually got a chance to speak, and it turns out that she’s Franco-German. Three seasons of silence was just set-up for that joke. Come on, Lindsay. Get your mind correct.

  17. ass face fuck & jizz shit
