  • Game Over

    8.0
    After a really poor episode last week, we get a return to form in tonight's 30 Rock. The sharp humor, the obscure references, the crazy Harriet Tubman movie, it all seemed to click here. Will Arnett and Steve Buscemi earned their Emmy guest actor nominations in this episode too.



    Definitely comedically better than most this season.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Liz: (On the phone with Bev her adoption counsellor) Four years, so I'll be 46 by the time I get a baby.
      Bev: Unless you'd like to adopt an older child. I can give you a six year old yesterday. Pick a colour!
      Liz: Oh, I just always pictured myself getting a newborn.
      Bev: And I always pictured myself getting double-teamed by two The Rocks. But sometimes we have to make compromises.

    • Liz: Have you ever updated your Flash Player? It is so sad (Crying). What happens to version 11.4.
      Jack: Oh what now?!
      Liz: (Angry) I'm taking hormone shots to have a baby you son of a bitch. A beautiful little baby (Crying). Laughs Being a woman is the worst!

    • Dr. Spaceman: Carol, they're towing your car!
      Fertility Specialist: Dammit! My kids are in there. (Leaves to check on car)
      Liz: No! How! I came all the way to Westchester just to avoid you.
      Dr. Spaceman: This is Westchester? I'm lost!

    • Tracy Jordan: (Walks into Liz's office while she is holding a hormone syringe.) Are you doping? Liz Lemon, that stuff is shrinking testicles, but there are bad side effects as well.
      Liz Lemon: No, Tracy. Not that it's any of your business, but I'm starting fertility treatments.
      Tracy Jordan: Now I'm not a woman so of course I can say whatever I want. This seems really weird and unnatural. Side effects include mood swings, increased irritability and swelling of one or more boobs.
      Liz Lemon: Can I help you with something?
      Tracy Jordan: Yeah, I'm about to start shooting my new Harriet Tubman movie and I got Octavia Spencer to play the lead, Harriet something.
      Liz Lemon: You know, I once played Frederick Douglass in a one woman show that the University of Maryland Diamondback called too confusing to be offensive.
      Tracy Jordan: Point is, I won't be at rehearsal at all this week.
      Liz Lemon: No, Tracy.
      Tracy Jordan: Exactly! No Tracy. Thanks for being so understanding.
