'30 Rock': Confessions of a teenage nemesis

Standards and Practices wouldn’t allow me to write a full recap. They took away all the good words! Those, dingbats! So let’s briefly recall what happened in last night’s “Standards and Practices” before jumping right in to the night’s best moments and lines.

Hank Hooper returned with granddaughter Kaylie in tow. As you should recall, Kaylie (played by Chloë Grace Moretz) is Jack Donaghy’s nemesis. So when Hank left to deal with the aftermath of America’s Kidz Got Singing airing two inebriated children on live television, Jack Versus Kaylie Round Two: No Subtitle Necessary began. They went back and forth, each one-upping the other in trickery. But at the end of the episode, there was still no clear winner in this battle. We’ll just have to wait for round three.

While Jack was dealing with Kaylie, Liz was battling Kenneth (or Andromakennethamblesorten, if you want to use his full Christian name) over the aforementioned Standards and Practices rules. This resulted in a power of wills that ended with Liz pretending to be Kenneth Toilethole, a man who gives advice while in toilet stalls, and as such, has to go to the bathroom a lot. (Particularly when Kenneth Toilethole goes to dinner with Liz and Kenneth.) Liz learned to respect Kenneth Parcell, even if he wouldn’t let her say “fart” or “doctor,” pretty much negating her Fart Doctor sketch.

Meanwhile, Jenna was looking for a different kind of publicity, you know, the kind that would humanize her. Her plan A was to fake cry on America’s Kidz Got Singing, but when that didn’t work out, she decided on plan B: Seek out possible children from her previous egg donations. Nothing is more humanizing than motherhood, right? As it turns out, she has six children. Also, as it turns out, this particularly story line wasn’t really interesting or funny. That said, I would potentially be interested in the Bravo reality series with her spawn. So now let’s get to the real reason you all came here…
