So this is not an objective blog post about Tina Fey’s appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night. Tina was objectively GREAT, but last night will forever live in my heart since, in what turned out to be the exact opposite of a Double Dog dare, I managed to get tickets to be in the audience for the show (all the other tickets appeared to be snatched up by Jon Bon Jovi’s loyal fan base.) What a dream within a dream, but the important thing is: Tina was hilarious, and also gave fans some insight into the genesis of 30 Rock‘s current hottest catchphrase: “I want to go to there,” and a special wait-for-it easter egg for 30 Rock superfans. Wooooooooooooooooo:

Tina’s full interview in all its magnificence. She doesn’t know who Robert Pattinson is!:

Later, Jon Bon Jovi responded to Tina’s joke (“Who hasn’t fantasized about dancing alone for Jon Bon Jovi?”) by inviting her to do so. So she did:

So we have our mission, fellow 30 Rock fans: look out for Tracy Morgan with a lollipop in his mouth saying “I want to have a lot of sucks tonight.” And, finally, if you’re planning to go see a taping of Late Night With Jimmy Fallon (which was more fun than The Daily Show or Colbert — less forced clapping), be sure to SIT IN AN AISLE SEAT and you can shake Jimmy’s hand, as demonstrated by my friend Mark’s photo essay of my own handshake FAIL. (Thanks Mark!) (Woooooooo!)

    Arrrrg with the Hulu clips! You can’t view them outside the US :(

  2. She is totally pretending not to know who Robert Pattinson is in order to be hilariously funny! You can tell she knows who he is because she really quietly says “That’s Robert Pattinson” after she says “that’s Dracula” about the picture later on. I noticed this because I transcribe everything Tina Fey says in a flowered notebook with hearts and the bubble-painted legend I LOVE TINA FEY on its cover, basically.

  3. poor jimmy. here he is with a supposedly good friend and yet he’s still nervous as hell and is incapable of having an actual conversation. ask about the oscars: check; ask about daughter: check; talk about bad hair: check. no follow-ups, no actual rapport.

    no actual talent. but the roots? woot.

    “I want to go to there” wants to become a beloved catchphrase SO BAD.

    • I’ve found myself using it a lot lately. I hope it does take off. It’s so hilarious that her 3-year-old was the one who came up with it.
