    30 Rock: Settling Into Simpsons Territory

    "Nothing Left to Lose" was an improvement over last week’s bizarre meditation on meditating, but to call it a “good” episode would be a stretch.

  • Episode Summary


    Jack wants to cure Pete of his low self-esteem and instill him with ambition. Tracy's sense of smell returns. Kenneth accidentally helps Jenna in her prank war with the TGS writers.

      Oh, 30 Rock, what happened to you? I actually like the writers being involved in a storyline, but everything today was just a mess. Even by 30 Rock standards there is no reason why Tracy would think Liz was his father. And I am pretty sure Jack has said stuff about crushing his employees in the past, contradicting his need to lift Pete's confidence.

      I got a few chuckles, but not much more.moreless

    • QUOTES (6)

      • Pete: Do you know what was under my hair? A birthmark. (turns around)
        Jack: Good God, it looks like a swastika made out of penises.

      • Jack: I can't fill this out because there's a question I don't know how to answer. "Where do you see yourself in five years?" For the first time in my career, I don't know. I could wind up anywere: running this company; making couches; serving as mayor of New York. Or, I could be six feet under#hellip; in the subterranean paradise we built to escape the poor.

      • Jenna: You know what they say, boys. "If you can't stand the heat, get off of Mickey Rourke's sex grill."

      • Jenna: You're the man who took professional boudoir photographs and then tried to mail them to Parade Magazine columnist Marilyn vos Savant.
        Toofer: I happen to think that smart is sexy. Our foreplay would be puzzle-solving.

      • Jack: This is the gym of the New York Racquet Club, Pete. Theodore Roosevelt was a member here. In fact, many of the animal heads mounted downstairs were shot by TR.
        Pete: Including the one that looked like a terrified Asian man?
        Jack: It was a different time, Pete.

      • Tracy: (Dr. Spaceman pulls something from his nostril) My Buck Rogers decoder ring!
        Liz: How long has that been in there? Those things are from the 70s.
        Dr. Spaceman: You know what else is from the 70s? Women staying quiet.
