'30 Rock': Willy Wonka and the NBC factory

(Page 2 of 2)

While Liz was trying to save the show, she neglected her husband, Criss, as he tried to prepare their home for the twins they adopted. Lemon got so wrapped up in trying to save TGS, she almost didn’t go to the airport to meet her new children. But twist! Tracy and Jenna did step up and finally do something — by doing nothing — to help Liz. Both Jenna and Tracy quit, and everyone else on staff followed suit.

So Liz was able to make it to the airport and meet the two newest additions to her family, twins Janet and Terry who happened to be mini-versions of Jenna and Tracy. (Janet is white and Terry is black, which is totally possible because I saw it on Maury.) So even though TGS has officially come to an end, it looks like Lemon won’t be far from her usual life.

The best moments and lines from “A Goon’s Deed in a Weary World”

++ “Okay, kids coming. Show to save. DVR at 98 percent, but I’m just never in the mood to watch Treme. Okay, first thing’s first: I’ll watch a bunch of Tremes.” —Liz

++ Jack: “But while I can’t help directly, I have, through back channels…”
Liz: “Like BET?”
Jack: “Back channels.”

++ Liz: “That’s impossible!”
Jack: “Impossible? Would any of your female heroes say that? Would Amelia Earhart or Dian Fossey or Joan of Arc…boy, women who try to do things sure get killed a lot.”

++ Liz singing “I ain’t afraid of no board” to the Ghostbusters theme song

++ “Now, we all need to pull together. Wing to wing, and oar to oar. Fine, I’ll skip to the end. And that little boy’s name was Marshall Mathers. So who’s with me?” —Liz trying to motivate the staff to help her

++ Liz: “We have to rally our fans, so you two are doing press all day.”
Tracy: “I’m glad the band U2 is doing press all day. Jenna, quick, run before Liz Lemon realizes what I did.”

++ “I do admire Willy Wonka. He’s a true capitalist. His factory has zero government regulations, slave labor, and an indoor boat. Wonderful.” —Jack

++ The greenscreen flamingos behind Liz when she was complaining about how greenscreens always look fake

++Liz: “I think TGS and Bro Body Douche would be tight.”
Edward: “Totes?”
Liz: “Nah mean? No homo.”
Edward: “Mos def.”
Liz: “So…jeah?”

++ “Yeah, I got some stuff on the back burner. Left unattended long enough, the house burns down. Insurance money.” —Tracy

++ “Fun news fact: The Today show was originally designed to entertain prison inmates whose IQs were too low for them to be executed.” —Kenneth

++ Kenneth: “It’s NBC. ‘We comedy.’”
Jack: “Kenneth, it’s ‘we peacock comedy.’ You say the peacock.”

++ “I haven’t a second to do anything? Do you know what I had for lunch today? Two pieces of pizza, a garden salad, a cup of soup. This cookie thing with a jelly center.” —Liz

++ “Every show I was sure would succeed, failed. I mean the monkey was funny, dammit.” —Jack, making a reference to the short-lived Animal Practice, I presume

++ “Is that a camera? I’m gonna need you on my good side.” —Janet (a.k.a. mini Jenna)

++ “What up, Liz Lemon. I will not be able to attend school tomorrow because of an issue with my lizard.” —Terry (a.k.a. mini Tracy)
