  • Part 1 of the Wedding

    Honestly? How great is this show? It truly speaks volumes about 30 Rock, the perennial Emmy-winner, that they can attract big name actors like Jon Hamm, Elizabeth Banks and Julianne Moore for such goofy roles. This is just the best comedy on network TV, and no one can argue other wise.

    Tracy Jordan had about 70 quoteworthy lines in 22 minutes, Jack was excellent as well, and even Liz was on top of her game. Plus, no Lutz!

    The fast-moving witty dialogue probably goes way over the heads of many viewers, but for those who are able to keep up with it, they are enjoying a tremendous show, tantamount to Frasier or Seinfeld in their prime.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Tracy: (on his new movie) They're paying me one million teacher salaries.

    • Liz: So I'll go to Floyd's wedding alone. Maybe I'll just lean into it and bring a cat and a baby stroller.

    • Tracy: (about his childhood) I seen a blind guy bite a police horse! A puppy committed suicide after he saw our bathroom! I once bit into a burrito and there was a child's shoe in it! I seen a hooker eat a tire! A pack of wild dogs took over and successfully ran a Wendy's! The sewer people stole my skateboard! The projects I lived in was named after Zachary Taylor, generally considered to be one of the worst presidents of all time! I once saw a baby give another baby a tattoo! They were very drunk.

    • Wesley: I don't want to go back to England. I can't suffer through the London 'Lympics. We're not prepared, Liz! Did you see the Beijing opening ceremonies? We don't have control over our people like that.

    • (Liz asks a stranger to be her date)
      Mike: I'd love to be your date, Liz. I like how forward you are. Now may I tell you something? I'm a plushie.
      Liz: Is that a fraternity?
      Mike: Kind of. It means I belong to a group of like-minded people who dress up in mascot costumes and have orgies in hotel rooms and state parks. Our term for intercourse... is yiffing.

    • Wesley: (to Liz) This is meant to be. We're like Russ and Rebecca on Chums.
